away…

I feel like I haven’t been very bloggy this week. It’s been busier than usual I guess. Monday I stayed home all day, but cleaned and cleaned. I even took the cushion covers off the couch in the den and washed them. It was harder putting them back on but it sure looks fresh and clean. I also spent a lot of time in Emelia’s room, going through all her clothes. I got rid of so much stuff. Tuesday afternoon I had lunch with Miki, we went to City Bites and Hobby Lobby. Yesterday I had a bunch of paperwork to get done and even got up at 5 a.m. this morning to finish.

Isabelle had a good day at school today. She spent time with Melanie (VT) and Niecie. Niecie said she repeatedly responded to their instructions and smiled a lot at school. While she was in school I had lunch with my brother and then ran a couple of errands.

The diet is still going good. I have lost about 16.5 pounds now. I am excited to get to 20!

Matt and I have been asked to teach at our new church. He will be teaching the junior high boys, and I’ll be teaching the junior high girls. It’s going to make Sunday mornings a challenge for me, but I guess I’m always up for a challenge. It took a few days for me to decide and give an answer because I wasn’t sure I could do it now, but today I told them yes. Matt loves teaching that age so he’s excited about it.

I (it was actually addressed to Annie and Isabelle) got a cuddly critter in the mail today. It’s a pink poodle and really cute. The problem is that the card in the box is for a different person. I think they mixed up the cards so I don’t know who sent it. It says to Abby Jo, I guess I’ll call the company tomorrow and see if they can tell me who sent it and let them know I got someone elses little note. I mostly want to be able to thank whoever sent it!

  1. Hey Annie

    Just stopping in to say hi and you’ve been a busy bee~

    I said to my coach this week, “I just want to get through it in one piece – that’s it, no lofty goals, just get through it” – oy!

    Can you send a prayer my way? I’m feeling really out of sorts this week – weepy and horrible.

    Amanda and Lorenzo looked so happy in their prom photos – ahhh, young love.

    And wow and wow again about your weight loss – you are inspiring me!!!!!!!!!! Big time!

    I have now removed all the chips and chocolates from the house – hopefully I’ll see some action on the scale soon!

    I love the cute little picture at the top of this post! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, you’ve been so busy! I’m WAY proud of you with your diet progress…I bet it’s fun getting on the scale! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your teaching the junior high girls will be so rewarding and worth the challenge! I’m sure they will love you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you can discover who sent the pink poodle! I’ve often worried that I’d do that when sending out multiple packages…put the wrong card in someone’s package or envelope…so I always recheck the contents before sealing the package!

    I’m going out of town for a bit…”see” you later! ๐Ÿ˜‰
