Started on the scraproom!!!

So, I have finally gotten started on the scraproom. It is going to be a long work in progress because there are a lot of items I want to buy for it, but I am going to at least get it set up in working order!

As always, Tuesday is weigh in day! Down another 3 pounds this week! woohoo! That makes 35 total so far in just 17 weeks! I am so proud of myself for sticking to this! I hope to loose at least an additional 20 pounds, then we'll see from there.

Randy is trucking along, getting better everyday back to the Dr. on the 1st.

Thanks for looking!

Getting there!

Well, I managed to get the other house cleaned over the weekend and I am making my way through the half of the garage that they threw everything in from the basement. I foresee being done with that by the weekend. Thank goodness! Clinton has already been complaining about everything in the garage, so I just want to be done so that all that's left is his junk! LOL! Of course, I will still have my scraproom to get through, but that only affects me and I can do it at my own pace! PHEW!

We ate at McDonald's no less than 3 times in the past week. And we don't even have fast food here where I live, that tells you how much we have been running! Somehow, I still managed to loose 2 pounds! I am over half way to my goal. I may re-evaluate that goal as I get closer, but for now, I am very pleased with the progress I am making, even under all of this stress!

Nothing new to report on Randy since the last post...

Today is my baby's Birthday!!!! Brandon is 8 years old... Makes me a little sad actually.

Well, I keep saying this, but maybe next week I will have some pictures to post! HA!

Well, we managed to get moved over the weekend! there were just a few minor glitches, nothing disasterous but still inconvenient! First, Clinton broke both paynes of a double payne window! No idea what that's going to cost to fix! Then the fridge wouldn't fit into the space, so a friend of ours spent all of Monday plaining and sanding to make it fit, which set me behind the whole day of getting my kitchen done! I managed to get it all finished yesterday afternoon, so at least we are functioning fairly well right now. We are awaiting our new stove and then that will be a whole other project, but we will tackle it when the time comes. Now, I just need to get the old house all cleaned up and life will be good! That is my goal for tonight and tomorrow, and believe me, it is filthy! Bad! I hadn't hardly done a thing in the past month because of all of the boxes stacked everywhere and running with Randy and working on other house things and school and working, and, and and... I'm really looking forward to being done with that!

Even during all of the major stress of the last week and a huge and decadent steak, shrimp and crab dinner complete with mudpie for dessert, I managed to loss another 1.4 pounds last week!!! WooHoo!~

Randy had another Dr. appointment on Wednesday, he is now in a brace in his shoe and can walk without the crutches! What a huge relief that is! So he is definitely on the mend, though they don't expect him to be at 100% for up to 12 months!

So there is my update for the week, obviously no pictures yet, but hopefully next week! Thanks for looking and I do hope to get back to crafting sometime soon!

WooHoo!!! & WooHoo!!!

Finally! We signed papers on the house yesterday! It is officially ours! What a pain this process has been, just to put it in perspective, the papers changed no less than 3 times YESTERDAY alone! Crazy! But, it's finally done! That is one WooHoo!!!! By this time next week we will be moved in over there and will just have the cleaning left in this house!

The second WooHoo!!! is that in the midst of all this stress, I was still able to loose 3.4 pounds last week! That is insane to me, because even though I am still following the plan, and have been getting some exercise, I just don't feel like I am giving as much as I was, but maybe that's because I am just more used to the program that it's nearly effortless, I don't know. I do know that I was so stressed Thursday and Friday last week that I literally had to talk myself out of eating like I used to! I really think I can stick with this for the long haul because if I can make it through such a stessful time and not binge, then I should be fine!

Randy had a Dr. appointment on Friday. He did get the cast removed, which was nice (his foot was totally gross inside there, YUCK!!!), however, even though he is back in the boot, he still can't walk on it, so he is still on the crutches. That is the most down I have seen him about the whole situation, he's really not enjoying having to use the crutches in school. He goes back on the 9th and if all is well, he will hopefully be in some kind of brace in his shoe and life will be much better.

The boys have been back in school for a week, and all is well. Randy has had homework every night, but luckily not anything too overwhelming.

So, I will hopefully be back one day next week with some pictures of our new house! And then hopefully I will be able to scrap again fairly soon, and my blog will return to a crafting blog! Thanks for looking!
