I have left you unattended for about 2 weeks.
I could tell you all it is gardening season and I have begun
the mad canning blitz, I could also say I was busy helping my sister move out and clear out 50+years of "stuff" from our Grandparents house in preparation of it's sale,I could say.."hey, it's summer, we're busy playing!" These would all be correct, but not completely honest.
I am always busy. I am a full time, stay at home Mom ,homeschooling my very active Princess
in the middle of the suburbs. I garden, cook from scratch most nights, have cleaning and laundry
and make my own curriculum. I also like to read. For fun, and to expand my mind.
Add in any socializing at all and we are full up over here.
Most of the time I can do it. Not effortlessly, but it may appear so to someone looking in.
I am not a whiner, life is hard. I tend to play with the hand I am dealt so to speak.
Lately, life has been TOO MUCH. I feel tired. A lot. A dark cloud has been following me around
for weeks, probably months, I was just too busy to notice. I am looking into medical reasons,
but I am not counting on them to find an answer. I started exercising. Every day.
I borrowed a couple of dvds from our library, and settled on Hip Hop Abs.
Go ahead and laugh, everyone else has.
I don't care. I started a little over a week ago, and I lost weight, and fit into clothes
that have been hanging in my closet with tags because I got too fat to wear that size,
but didn't realize it. I have not made any real dietary changes, just more aware of eating
3 healthy meals. I do not skip breakfast because I am too busy. I am making some time for me.
I got a manicure and pedicure last week, after my doc appointment, and this week I will do something else for me. I have decided we will take August off here in our Garden State Homeschool. I will get back on track with my blogging. Thank you all for the wonderful e-mails
and in some cases phone calls of concern. I love our community and won't be packing it in quite yet. I will try to post what we did for our last book club book here tomorrow, and Friday I will have a new book as well as posting photos of our giveaway selection. My apologies to all my readers and the kind people at Jump Start for dropping the giveaway ball.
