Life is Happening

So much of it, in fact, that I can’t slow down long enough to write about it much! I still love to blog, even if it is just for myself and the few readers that have stuck by me and put up with my sporadic posting. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read this!

Leah just started the second grade! She is such a good student and always does her homework as soon as she gets home. She is at a 4th or 5th grade reading level. She is into so many things! She does horseback riding still, and next week she will get her horse up to a trot without her teacher holding a lead line for the first time. She also plays soccer and has a part in a local community theater production of Mary Poppins.

Christopher is a joy. He is so mischievous and funny. Have you ever heard the poem that goes:

There once was a little girl, 

who had a little curl. 

And when she was good, she was very, very good,

but when she was bad, she was very, VERY bad. 

That is Chris in a nutshell! He is such a sweetheart, handing out hugs and kisses, offering to help with chores, and just being kind. Until he’s not. And then he throws things, hits, kicks and screams. I am working with him on that, but I love that he feels things so intensely!

The hubby and I just celebrated six years of marriage! It is hard to believe, but they do say that time flies when you’re having fun. 2016 has been a year of many wonderful changes for us, and they are still coming! We are looking at houses right now and hope to be spending Christmas in our forever home. I finished school this year and did remarkably well. And finally, one last piece of news. No, I am NOT pregnant. I have begun on a weight-loss journey. After experiencing some medical issues throughout the past year, this summer I made the decision that I have had enough. Enough of struggling to lose, enough of feeling lousy, and enough of hating myself. So, I am going to be having a Sleeve Gastrectomy to help me change my lifestyle and habits and live a better life.

I am not going to promise that I will update more. I will try, but sometimes life is important as it is happening, and you have to focus on the present moment rather than reflecting after it has passed. I am trying to write more, to do more of what I enjoy, but I will just say “Until next time.”

Thanks for reading.
