Newness...

I bought myself an mp3 player yesterday. And I can't believe I didn't get one sooner. And I'm shocked that I was able to download any song I wanted from Best Buy's music store and load it on there....for free!!!! I only (ha, ONLY) put 70 songs on it so far, and I am loving it. I've been doing my chores today, singing along to my favorite worship songs, shakin' my hips to my favorite tunes, and bopping my head. Oh yeah, I LOVE my little pink player. It is tiny. Teeny. So cute. I can't wait to use it during my walks now too.

I changed my bedroom around. I switched it sometime last fall and I've hated it ever since. The flow of the room was all wrong....I slept bad that way...the feng shui was off. All is put back to rights now. I waited this long because I have hardwood floors, and any time I move stuff I manage to scratch the floors all up. Well this time I did it the hard way. I emptied dressers, took apart the bed, actually moved stuff out of the room. Took longer, I sweated more (thanks for the extra workout!), but managed to not scratch a thing. I love moving rooms around.

Next week is our 9 year anniversary. If ever a year deserved celebration it is this one. If we make it through this year, we can make it through any year. Days like yesterday make that a big if though....

I weighed myself this morning....since starting this weight-loss journey I am down 20 lbs. Oh yeah!!! Go me! :) That isn't 20 lbs since starting the MOPS Biggest Loser thing...I'm down 7 since starting that....but 20 since January (please note, I started in January, fell off the wagon, and only got back on again about 3 weeks ago). I'm less now then I was when I got pregnant with Landon. But I have a long way to go to get to where I was when I got pregnant with Emilie, and even more to go to get to my goal weight. But booyah, 20 lbs. is somethin'!

I'm getting an elliptical with my Dubyah $$. Stimulating the economy....and my weight-loss. Thanks, George Dub. I appreciate it.

Gotta go mop floors. I'm not a domestic goddess, that's for sure.............

Congrats on the overall loss!! It sounds like you've been going through some trying times, but that is one big positive you've got going for you! Awesome!
