So I was reading my usual list of blogs today and came across this post. Of course I had to go and see what mine was so off I went. And guess what? I am within my average weight! I can't believe it. I still weigh more than I did before I had the boys but at least I have been able to lose a little these last few months. Now if I could just keep going. The only real thing I have been doing is watching how large my portions are. Nothing else. In fact, I haven't even been able to make it to the gym since the boy's schedule changed in January. You would think losing a little weight would motivate me to get myself back in there. Just so, so busy and the last thing on my mind at the end of the day is exercise. I know, I know, excuses. But at the moment my sanity is worth having a few extra pounds. :)

Today would have been my dad's birthday. I always miss him but his birthday is one of those days I am just kind of sad and REALLY miss him. It's so hard for me to believe he's gone at times. I just want to pick up the phone and give him a call. I just tried to keep myself busy today and enjoy time with hubby and the kiddos and even did some cleaning out of the garage. How's that for keeping myself busy?

On a happier note, we have been able to spend a lot of time outside this last week. Yippee! Sunshine is a wonderful thing. Hoping for some more great weather this next week so we can do much of the same! I'll leave you with one of my favorite photos from this week. :)

Thinking of you! I'm very close to my parents, so I know it must be hard to lose one--and sad when a special day comes. Good for you on the smaller portions; we can all survive on less!

Hey! MY dad's birthday was also the 3rd!!!! He passed away 9/11/2004 and I miss him so stinkin' much! Just like you said. My mom's birthday is April 25th and that's always hard, too. Wish that they were here. I know they would surely enjoy the kiddos! Congrats on the weight loss! I know my portions are gargantuan... :0
