Im doing it!!!!

Hello Friends and Family!!!

well, actually I'm doing alot....

Today Kait and I have started on Weight Watchers (she just wants to eat healthier, I want to loose the equivalent of a 10 year old child's weight) .....So now I don't just have to figure out what to fix for the other 6, I have to figure out what I'm eating 6 times a day, and then find her meal stuff too. Did I mention she is about to be 14...(DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS????) .... Then I listen to them all complain about what I have made ( except Dear sweet Chris, he learned very early on that if he didn't like it, then he could just make it himself next time... Worked like a charm "On him" the others would just as well make, & then eat up everything in the place!!) There are times when I will look around without Chris seeing me and he will have what looks to be a grimace on his face , but as soon as he sees me, its a Big ~ole~Smile & a Nod. Goodness knows, I love that man!!

.... How in the world do people that cant cry out to God do it????

Remember the house I talked about back in "Im done hook line and sinker"?? Well, we have found a home in that neighborhood that we might be very well buying. It is in a newly Developed & Desirable area that is really growing, just on the outskirts of town. We have over an acre here , so we really wanted a large lot, this one is just over 1/2 an acre ... We are now talking to the Mortgage Co. that we have used for the past 8 yrs to see whats what.. We are also working with Realtor and as many of you know, it is a long arduous process. It's really driven home what my father~in~law/ Husband/& one of my Closest Friends have been saying to me over and over... To get my Realtors Licence... I'm not sure when I would squeeze it in, but I know there is money to be made!!!

Today the alarms went off. You know, the ones that signal during a rain storm,that a cone shaped wind has been spotted.. What~is~that~called?? Ohhhhh, yeah a TORNADO!!!! And you can bet your sweet bippy that my kids were like " monkeys on crack" today after the Eldest Female in the house ( who shall remain nameless) was going from winder to winder giving a play by play about the impending darkness, & nearly swore that whatever it was "was headed right for us"! I finally had to have the girls leave the room where they were all watching the news, you would have thought I had grounded them from the phone... Faces long, on the verge of tears, and I realized why... Through all of that commotion, terror, fear , and cursing ( there wasnt any cursing, but it does sound dire doesnt it???) they were bonding with their Meemaw... Some peoples kids.... ☻

Till next time...

P.S.~~ K.S. I really hope "you know who" feels better soon, talk to you tomorrow...♥

I am proud of you for doing ww. I have all the stuff from WW and I may just have to jump back on the bandwagon so I can loss my rear end. I did it a couple of years ago and had some success. It seems like a plan that you can actually live with.
