It’s 11:38 pm on Wednesday night, and I haven’t posted to tell you wasup . . . .
So, here goes:
School : Got done on schedule today. This is big, folks. When will it happen again? I don’t know. But let’s just glory in the moment 🙂
Diet: Still keeping up the lo-carb eating. It is going well for the most part, but I find it challenging to keep the menu interesting. Right now I am on a ginger/garlic stir-fry kick. It is also challenging to keep food on hand for the kids that I really don’t want to eat. So far, Mark and I have resisted pretty well–other than a couple of times we have consciously decided to partake of something off the plan. I think Mark is losing a good bit. I am losing, but I am the only one who can tell. It may take a long time for this to work for me. I think this will motivate me to get the exercise thing going.
Kids: As my facebook status updates and my blog posts indicate, football is our life. It is time consuming, and I love to complain about it, but ultimately, it is really great for the boys. They are getting more exercise than they ever have in their lives, and for Calvin especially, it is a good way to channel all his extra energy. He is also really into it mentally.
Oh, yeah, we do have 2 girls, too. The girls are busy with drama class that is part of their school program this year, and they are back in Awana at their old school. This is good since it gives them a chance to keep up with some of last year’s school friends a bit. Evangeline has started rehearsals again with Kirkwood Children’s Chorale, too.
Let’s not forget the dog: We are about to have our second anniversary of Simon ownership. He is a great dog, and we really love him. He has had a few tummy issues in the last couple of months that have concerned us a bit, but the vet hasn’t had much insight. We have been trying to walk him more regularly, and that seems to have helped with increasing his appetite and giving him more energy. We keep watching him to see if we need to visit the vet again.
Boring Post: This has turned into a more boring than normal post, but I guess that means life is moving along at a nice click, and there’s nothing big to share. Perhaps I just feel pressured to hit that publish button before midnight . . . .
