Here again!

This weekend was Homecoming at Liberty University and my sister, Brenda, and her family came to spend one night with us. It was a very fast visit, but it was nice to see them!  I picked Haley up from school and she was jumping up and down saying she got to see her cousins!  I asked her teacher if she had been like that all day and she said no!  Thankfully!

Mike is working right along at Walmart and enjoys his work, the problem is the hours! He works at night and it's just hard on him at 60 years old to be working all night and trying to sleep during the day. His favorite manager is moving to daytime and Mike mentioned that he'd like to go to daylight too and the manager said he'd see what he could do!  I'm not sure if the guy really meant it or was just talking, but we are praying that he can get on daylight! If he did that this would be the perfect job! Mike likes the work and the people he works with for the most part so you can't ask for more than that!  If he got on daylight I see him being able to do that job for another ten or more years!

I'm still tutoring away. I did have two students withdraw from our school, but honestly that just made my schedule nicer and more relaxing so I'm not complaining about that at all! I want a Thrive for my birthday. I've looked at all the tablet sized gadgets and I think that the Thrive will meet my needs the best! My birthday is in the few days so I hope to talk Mike into buying it for me, but if not I'll just buy it myself!

I have really been considering my weight again...I was walking for a couple of weeks, but have gotten out of the habit again. This weekend two of my friends went to Baltimore to do the half marathon that we all planned to do six years ago...I went, but we unable to participate because I had a pulled hamstring...then when I got home I was going to get busy with my weight loss and three weeks later my mom passed away and then it was all downhill from there!

Anyway, I really need to get busy with my weight loss. One thing that happened about six weeks ago was that my daughter's mother-in-law passed away at the age of 59! I'm just 52 and that's just way too close to my age so I need to be around for my family and I want to start taking care of myself!

I ordered some stuff from Biggest Loser...I am going to take a good hard look at it and see what I think. I believe the cost of the stuff is $120.00, which is a little pricey, but if it helps me get my health back it will be well worth the money!

  1. I wish you the best and prayers for your weight loss. I have not followed the Biggest Loser for awhile and also bought some things from them. I am concentrating now on cutting carbs and just eating healthier. I also see those around me with serious diseases who are my age and it is sobering!
