Maybe its me?

Maybe its me.. I dont post very frequently....

I sat here with a blank blog staring me in the face once or twice over the last week but never found anything worth talking about. Today is different.

First, we have achieved Deck! Well the pieces are delivered anywyas and B is 6 inches on the last whole away from being ready to pour the concrete. Thanks to all those that gave us a hand (and will in the future)!

Second, I have a HS Reunion coming up in July... and in trying to get ahold of frineds from back then I managed to track down an old friend. He lives down south now, has a wife and is looking to buy a home. While I know most of the people I want to connect with will not be at my HS reunion, I plan to make as many of those connections online as I can. If they are there then great we get to chat again, but if not I will still be able to get caught up with where their lives have taken them. I am a big nostalgia person.. Love it! Getting ahold of people I havent seen for years and years, finding out how they are and were they have ended up.

Speaking of ending up... I am out of lunch break :)

SO Tell me, did you go to a HS or College Reunion lately and did you have a good time? Any insights into life that came out of it, yours or someone else's?

Hello World!

Now that I have turned on anonymous comments my blog might get a bit more action. Please continue to tell me who you are when you comment.

Having quite the thunderstorm right now, I like lightning and thunder :)

Kinda need it to stop raining so we can mow our grass and pull up sod for the garden B wants to put in.

Yeee Haaaw!

Not normally a cowgirl yell kinda girl but I was exposed to country music quite a bit this weekend at a friends wedding :)

So I'm There! Goal #1 to workout and eat healthy has gotten me to 160 lbs! My knee has been giving me a bit of pain this morning, bad combination between a lot of walking/standing/dancing and long hours in the car I think.

This week my ChangeOne plan has me focusing on Dinner, while I maintain the healthy Breakfasts, Lunches and snacks that I have been doing for the last 3 weeks now.

Other things going on:
  • Getting ready for a Yellowstone Camping trip in late July, purchased some hiking boots on Sunday so we could start breaking them in now.
  • Also have another couple of weeks of preperation for the Girl Scout end of the year trip. Trying to make the girls take part in the planning of the trip so I have delegated some responsibilites.
  • Weekends till the end of July are nearly all booked up and a friend asked that I pencil something in one of those free weekends, so any Summer Plans will have to be in August!

Snow in May!

Monday May 2nd and I woke to find snow! Some sticking to my car, roofs of houses in my neighborhood, speckled on the ground and some still trikling down from the sky!

Yesterday some friends and I got together and walked in the MS walk-a-thon. 5 miles in stocking hats, winter coats and gloves. Took 15 min or so for the exercise of walking to warm me up but it was a great experience overall. Thanks to all who walked with us and donated to the cause :)

And Guess What! I even got a great new pretty blue water bottle! Seem to be getting a collection of them and I raised at least $25 for MS and walked the 5 miles to earn this one.

Even better than that all my exercise this weekend not only offset some bad eating habits (had a Sausage McMuffin with Egg Sat morn) but I still lost 1 lb! YEA ME!

Just another 2 or 3 to go to hit my first weight loss goal.. and Ive been thinking about what my reward will be for the last couple of days.

A season of my Favorite Show on DVD... some new clothes, a night out at my favorite restraunt? Who knows.. maybe all of the above!
