New day, new attitude

Image
So once again, blogging has saved me. After writing everything down last night, I realized that things are not as dire as they seem and that I found the root of the problem. So today I have a new attitude and it is a new beginning. I am inspired and motivated. And this is the reason, after 12 years, I still come here on a regular basis. I'm off to take on the day. More later.

Time to refocus

When I sat down to blog yesterday, I was going to complain about how I feel. Then I thought I'd do a short recap of the past 3 months, and then I got tired. So here is the post I was thinking of last night.

I feel like crap. I'm the highest weight I've been in a long, long time and I feel every ounce of it. I'm not doing much of anything and I'm feeling every step I miss. I feel like a huge, huge hippo. Okay, having got that out of my system, let's examine what is going on and how to recover from it.

First, eating hasn't been great because I've been so busy. Seriously. I work so hard on the weekends that I'm exhausted all week long. When I'm really busy, I'll just grab whatever there is to eat. When I'm exhausted I don't really want to eat and only crave carbs. So clearly, getting enough rest has got to become a priority or things will continue to spiral out of control. I believe that the worst is over and I should be able to relax…

The past 3 months have been a blur

It all started on January 23rd when we decided to commit to the move this year. We were going to move over the summer and it seemed so long away. 5-6 months. Now, here we are on the precipice of the move. Ugh!!! So much has happened I don't even know where to start, so I'm just going to jump in.

We had a garage sale the weekend of April 2nd. Then we rebuilt the carport the weekend of April 9th. On April 16th the POD came and on the 21st it left. We have painted the entire house inside and out. We have been working on the house every weekend until we literally collapse into bed. I look forward to going to work on Monday because I can get some rest. Tuesday, May 3rd, I took off work and the realtor came and staged the house and took pictures. Tomorrow the listing goes live. Sunday is our first open house. Oh my. Things have just moved at such a rapid pace and everything has happened in such a blur it's hard to keep track of things.

Next weekend, the 13th - 16th, we fly to…
