What's Next

We're almost done with Summer and the girls have moved out for the school year :( sniff! So the house is quieter and I'm considering what I'm going to do to fill the skads of freetime ahead. (joke) I'm pretty busy most of the time, so between housework and laundry most of the time just slips by. Seems time is a lot like money... If you don't decide what you are going to spend it on it just seems to spend itself.
I got a new look for the blog and I'm all excited about it. I think that it's motivating and makes me think about all the many goals I want and need to set for myself.
There are so many things I could do, but I think working on my weight has got to become a priority. I had a dream last night and in it I was explaining to someone that I haven't always been this heavy, (they were meeting me for the first time and they said that they had pictured me a lot thinner). I explained that in fact I had never weighed this much in my entire life. (pregnancy included) That was the end of the dream, but in all the other dreams I had I felt bad about myself and keplt thinking that I was embarrased by the way I looked.
After waking I didn't feel so terribly insecure but I did feel that my dream was me preparing me and pushing me to take action. It's time.
So now I straighten up the kitchen and throw in a load of laundry and once that is done I'll set out to develop the plan of action for the next week at least. More later... So much to do!

The blog looks FANTASTIC!!
LOVE IT!

I hear ya on the goals. I've been able to avoid dieting because nursing moms shouldn't diet. Of course that guideline is probably meant for Moms who nurse more than once or twice a day but it justified the donuts I was shoving down my gullet. (How do you spell gullet? LOL)
Anyway...here's to goals! Always reaching for them and hopefully accomplishing more than we don't!

I'm also adding ~pretty up my blog~ to my goals list now!
