Postponed our closing.

Thursday, October 08, 2015      12 comments

We have postponed the closing on "our new house." There is a radon "issue" that needs to be fixed before we commit to this house. I really love this house, but if they can't fix it so that the mitigation system will actually take the radon out, ... Read more

Still no luck.

The second Open House was a bomb. We had one person, a neighbor, come look. We've dropped the price $5,000 and I hope this will get it sold. I've eaten well, until today. A baby shower and late breakfast, plus a late dinner made for some b... Read more

Second time around.

Friday, October 02, 2015      13 comments

We have another Open House this weekend. I hope the second time around will be more successful. Last week the painters were here painting the house, so many of the windows and the French doors were covered. This week should be a better presentat... Read more

Open House.

Sunday, September 27, 2015      10 comments

Today is our open house. I'very been doing last minute touch ups and deep cleaning due to stress. I'm burning the calories! It rained most of last week so the painters are hete painting the outside. Ugh! I did make them cookies and only ate on... Read more

I lost my blog!

Saturday, September 26, 2015      10 comments

I wrote a blog yesterday, got my points and it promptly disappeared! I have no idea what happened. I had blogged about my husband getting under 250 lbs. He is at 249 lbs. Yes, I am proud of him, but after looking at his BMI of 32.something... Read more

I've been running!

Saturday, September 19, 2015      13 comments

I have been running 3 to 4 times a week with my "nonrunning" daughter. She decided that she wanted to get into shape. She did cross country in high school and hated it, but now she's running. When I run with her we run around 12 minute mil... Read more

We have a house!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      16 comments

Well after walking away from the first house and looking around, the owners contacted us and took our offer! I think they realized we were the only ones looking at it. Yay for us! We move in next month, less than 30 days from our offer. Ev... Read more

The answer is no, but that's ok.

I went to my 30th year class reunion last Friday. It was ok. I saw some friends that I haven't seen for a while, but there was still "high school drama" where some wouldn't even look at others. Sad that after 30 years, people are still petty. ... Read more

It started out well, a nice 8.1 mile run with an average of 10.22 minute miles. A perfect day. One that you felt like you could just keep going. However, I had some important business to take care of. My husband and I put in a bid on a hou... Read more

We are all in this together!

I've shared happy times, sad times, good choices, bad choices, achievements and failures. The one thing that remains the same is all of YOU! After sharing a not-so-nice blog and reading the comments, it made me realize that even though our... Read more

Bad choices and paid for them.

I didn't eat well on Sunday. I ate a breaded chicken sandwich and fries after my daughter's soccer game. It tasted great, but I haven't eaten anything breaded for a very long time. In fact, I don't remember the last time I ate something breaded.... Read more

Looking back in order to look forward.

After reading several blogs tonight, I realize how fortunate I am. This journey is not an easy one for any one, but having maintained my healthy lifestyle for over four years now has brought me some insight. 1) Consistency is the key. It c... Read more

Good can always be found in challenges.

I'm adjusting to my new students. Out of my nine, four are constantly making noises and/or talking. They are "good kids," just oh, so noisy. Most of it is their disabilities, but they can control some. Only two can work independently with a ... Read more

What the scale can't measure.

Sunday, August 30, 2015      10 comments

Another good one to keep in mind. A scale can't measure our greatness and a number doesn't define us. We all have talents, beauty and greatness with... Read more

Anniversary dinner

Saturday, August 29, 2015      12 comments

Yesterday was my 22nd anniversary. Not bad for a guy that didn't want to get married or have kids. Not only did he get married, he has four kids. (Plus many that come in and out and call us their second parents.) Yes, I am a blessed woman! ... Read more
