So, realized last week I had gained a few pounds back. I was disgusted with myself. So this week, it has been back on the wagon for me. I keep telling myself that this is good for me. I find it strange though, I don’t have the taste for sweets that I used to have. I still appreciate a good piece of chocolate, however, I’ve not craved it in months. That’s definitely a step in the right direction.
I’m currently in between loads of laundry. The last two weeks with actually getting it put away has stunk. It comes out of the dryer hot and I really don’t want to handle it, then before I know it, the day is gone and it is time to crawl into bed. The air running constantly keeps the house manageable at least, but it isn’t cold. We’ve been at or over 100 degrees for nearly a month now and it doesn’t look like there is going to be a break in the heat until closer to autumn. My poor garden is pathetic at this point, the grass is all crunchy and no one wants anything to do with anything that requires heat.
School was done in two days this past week (we started back three weeks ago, too hot to enjoy time outside, so we figured why not start school back up?). Monday was a day when my MIL called and we ended up talking on the phone for two hours and then I had to catch up a lot of other stuff, so school didn’t get done that day. Tuesday, I woke up with no real voice from allergies (ragweed is running early this year and we live North of the old St. John’s which they are tearing down piece by piece and the wind comes up out of the south). Then today we were supposed to have had some friends come over to swim, but they ended up having to stay home sick. The girls got caught up on school on Wednesday and then did extra yesterday to have today off.
I’m in the middle of reading Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey. I highly suggest this book if you own your own business, work for a business or even just run your household. I am blown away by this book and it is helping me to figure out some stuff for something I’ve been feeling led to do in the future.
Speaking of the future, we have some big decisions to make this weekend. If you read this before then, please pray for us to make the right one. I can’t go into details, but God knows. We need to give an answer on Monday. Thanks!
