II just realized my other posts are all mopey. I'm not a naturally sad person in general. Actually, a lot of the reason I make sad posts is because I hate being sad and am generally a happy person. I let the saddness out on 'paper' to avoid showing it in person. I'm not sure this is a good tactic but it's me.
So, I'm super excited! We're going to Renn Faire. Last week we were in Wisconsin Dells, my sweet mother treated us tp a trip. I'm convinced that trip saved my sanity and prepared me for the week from hell I was about to face at home. Four days with no responsibilty and all the beautiful smiles and laughs from the kids was all I need to remind myself that I can do this!! Renn Faire. We've never been. I have no idea what to expect but I'm certain the kids will have a blast just based on wha I've heard from others as well as the website. We might go today. I didn't think we could. Money is tight but this weekend, the last one of Renn Fair, has a promotion and all kids are free!
I'm also happy about my church. I love it. While I am pagan I attend a Unitarian Universalist Church when I can(which hasn't been often lately). Despite not yet being a member AND the fact that I haven't been lately they were very helpful to me just recently. Becaue of M's pending status in, well, everything, there were a few issues I had that I couldn't get out of alone. Those wonderful people are helping me and I couldn't be more grateful!
My dog is also doing very well. she was hit by a car two weeks ago. She's basically back to her old self. She's so cute when she runs all peg legged with her cast. I love it. I'll be happy once it comes off though. She's my walking buddy and I miss taking walks I'd like to get back to it.
Oh yea. I'm on a life changing adventure right now. I've gained weight since M has been ill, I'm not sure HOW since I'm always on the go. I do know that I've been eating more. I could go for a while and not be hungry before and now it feels like I'm hungry all the time. I'll spare the depressing details but when I weighed myself last I was not a happy girl. While I don't always lose, I'm usually consistent and I gained around 17 pounds. So, I'm on a diet and trying to excercise. Diet is the wrong term...I'm trying to fix my habits. Diets do not work and I know it. So far so good! I'm challenging myelf to drink more water and MUCH less juice and soda. I'm doing as much Just Dance 2 as I can each day. I got an hour in the other night and it felt great! I'm also trying to get back into FLY lady because my house is a mess and the guests that have about worn out their welcome are no longer very helpful. With any luck it will be very soon.
- Happy Time :-D
