My son is still in Portland. He has got a job, finally! Tough market to be a new worker! Empty nest is definately here, just me and the cats now. Grandbaby due any day! Been dating a new guy for the last month or two. My nutritional choices have been pretty poor. I've gained about 15 pounds of the 70 back. The good news is that I'm back at it! I'm tired of the painful joints and headaches! So here I go again! Work is having a new weight loss competition. This one is different. Two weigh Ins total, one at the start and one at the end. Three months. I just weighed in Tuesday. I'm ready to get healthy again. The good news is that what had seemed to be wrong a couple of months ago seems to have healed itself. I suspect it is due to a more balanced approach in my personal life. My bead room is SLOWLY taking shape.

It is the nature of butterfly dreams to up and fly away... Or soar on the breeze until out of sight.
They may leave a hole, and a time to mourn. In the end they leave new insight and understanding if one cares to notice, and golden memories if one cares to remember.
For me it brought a new jewelry design.
Even though the dream wafting away was not my choice I still appreciated the inspiration that allowed me to create and comemorate...
And I appreciate the knowledge gained and the timliness of the experience.

I have been working out with my wii fit plus consistently now since I got it (20 days). I weigh in every day even if I don't do any training (so far just two days). The boon is that I am now more inclined to work outside of the home also.
The yard may actually get the care it needs this year. I worked in the yard for 3 1/2 hours yesterday, but it took a bit of revenge, poision ivy! Not to mention the wild blackberries I was cutting out. I love blackberries but it is taking over in an area I don't want them, choking out my lilac tree!
My lilac tree looks pretty sad. I've got to figure out what it needs and tend it. I've been in this house 10 years and have never really done anything to it other than cut the occasional blossom cluster. It does have a larger tree growing in the middle of it! Not really sure how to get rid of that! I'm thinking about "ringing" it, or taking off a ring of bark on it. That would kill it but would it fall on my house? Ticklish question, that.
Right now I'm still getting to the area. I figure I'll work 3-4 hours every week on it.
I've had issues with ice cream this year. This is new to me. I've never had an issue with ice cream! I have had a round or two with lemon sherbert. Fortunately that is hard to find! Ice cream is everywhere!

I went on a cleanse, the Whole Body Cleanse. It was supposed to be for two weeks but I made it through the first week. Maybe I'll try again in a week or two. I think I would do better with the powder form of the fiber suppliment as eight tablets (four from fiber) is just too many pills for me to take each day.
I havn't been online much the last couple of weeks as I've been busy trying to incorporate lots of new habits and changes into my life. Some days I do really good and some days I don't.
It looks to be a busy spring, with lots to do outside added into the mix! Glad I have the 3 day weekends, although Tuesday through Friday is pretty much work and errands, and not much else! Today we will get caught up on the housework and then I will take my son for his eye appointment and to order his glasses.
