Summer starts in 2 1/2 days!!!

I'm sorry that it has been so long since I posted...my last two weeks have been filled with history reports, salt maps, making t-shirts, preschool graduation, field trips, praise team practices, choir practices and worship meetings. They have not been filled with laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, making beds, swishing toilets or even picking up garbage that those who live in my house drop on floors, dressers, under couches, or in the couches. I looked around today after two weeks of busyness and felt like I was going to faint! I joined flylady last week hoping to be inspired but I've been so busy I just delete the thousands of emails she's been sending...but now school is almost over and it's time to take back my life!

I'm sort of scared about the kids being home for the summer...they tend to eat me out of house and home, make crazy messes and just generally be around all the time...but I do welcome the change of pace, the having fun and just getting reacquainted with them. I always feel like the beginning of summer is a sort of "new year" for us. It's a time that we can reassign chores, try to start new habits and get life back in order. September, January and June are those times when I can make resolutions to get back on track. I like having three chances a year.

I'm still doing WW and am down 11.2lbs! That is very exciting and my clothes are starting to get loose! AWESOME!!! 5 more lbs and I've promised myself a shopping trip. I've gotten to the point where people are starting to notice and let me tell you that is very encouraging...but also I get prideful and lazy then thinking I've got this weight thing figured out and start to stray from the rules. So I'm trying to be careful.

Hope you all have a great Memorial Day holiday and talk to ya soon!

So, I can only guess that the rest of my summer will be better than today! Know that I can't wait to be there "drinking coffee" with you!
I was wondering why Carol needs a suit this year?

Hope you have a great summer. After seeing that photo of your happy place, it looks like it will be!

So, I still don't know why Carol needs a suit this year, and by the way, I posted more than you did this week!

I definitely need a suit! (a full suit of armor or somthing!) But with all the weight you two are shedding, you should be in those itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikinis!
