Spring Has Sprung

School's out pretty soon and it's suddenly beautiful here. All kinds of reasons to be happy and hopeful. I'm going to try and stay focused in a small way - like, I'll do lots of SparkPeople-ing from now until mid-July and then regroup. This weight has got to come off and Thinking Good Thoughts hasn't worked.
So annoying.

I am back on the horse, too, with good results. Am trying so darn hard! but it is not fast and impatience always ruins my efforts. Not this time, I hope!

Good luck, keep trying!

Thanks for the pedicure. I've actually never had one, professionally, but might be a new thing to try at 50 y.o. ;-)

I did not know your eldest is Texas-born! Maybe she'll be more acclimated to the heat up there? I was born in the South, lived here til I was 21, but once I lived up North (NYC, Boston), I never got readjusted to the heat here. Blah!

Yes, lots of iced tea and cement ponds. emoticon
And hoping that our 15 year old main a/c holds out!

I heard about that so-called "heat wave" up there! Um, that's called normal here, but I'm sure you guys aren't acclimated to it at all, and there are probably a lot of places w/ out a/c. We're supposed to hit 100's this week, and I'm cringing, but then again, it took _this long_ to hit the 100-degree temps in Summer in N. TX, so I shan't complain.

Summer school, eh? My deepest sympathy.

BTW, my kids are, I believe, 5'8" or so and about 5'4". I'm still taller than them! A funny thing....when visiting my parents a few weeks ago, my dad said to them, "I'll bet you guys weigh within five pounds of each other!" (I'd never even thought about it.) My dad went and got a scale and they weighed the SAME. It was weird. They're almost two years apart, and both what I consider to be skinny. (120 pounds or so) Youngest (13) has broader shoulders and is lifting weights. Skinny older child was the FATTEST baby. (breastfed, heh---it goes away)

I'm off to bed. Rough night. emoticon

The description of my horse visitor was great. I once asked a question during a QHH session what I had been in another life, and super conscious answered that I had been a horse. Way cool.
