Please forgive my absence from this blog for the last few years. I hadn't realized it had been quite that long until I logged in tonight and saw 2009 as my last posting. I am making a second quarter resolution to get back into it and hopefully entertain people with my never a dull moment life.
In the last few years things life has had its ups and downs but nothing I can't handle. I have a super duper awesome job that I look forward to going to everyday! I really enjoy what I do, and the people that I work with. Couldn't ask for anything better than that. Michael has changed jobs a couple of times, but is now teaching in a great school district that he really enjoys as well. The kids are all enjoying school. Leslie is about to finish 4th grade. I am not old enough to have a kid that is about to be in intermediate school, am I? Charlotte will be starting Kindergarten next year. And Sophie just started PreK at the same school as Charlotte, but is in the younger class. She has been through a lot this year so far. She is very close to being diagnosed as having Autism, but because she is only 4, they want to wait a little bit longer before they put that label on her. She is super smart and has a big imagination.
Most people that know me, know that I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. Starting on Sunday, I will try yet again to get that under control. The gym that I go to is having a Biggest Loser contest. I have tried this previously at this gym, but it didn't work out too well for me. This time is going to be different. Not sure just how yet, but I have a really good feeling about it. For the most part, everybody around me is very good at supporting me during my dieting days. After I go tomorrow to get registered for the contest, I will be posting my starting weight and keeping y'all posted on my progress. Putting that out there for everybody to see scares the crap out of me, but I need to do something like that out of my comfort zone. And it will make me even more determined to post a smaller number each week. I have been inspired by a friend's blog about a personal journey and I decided that I wanted to share mine. I can use all the encouraging words that I can get, so if anybody is reading this, please give me a thumbs up every now and then!!
