Miscellaneous Stuff

Well, here it is the end of January and it's cold in Wisconsin. (Like it's supposed to be). I thought I would update those who read about my household and stuff in general.

Let's see:

DH is still working, has a bunch of projects to keep him going. Happy that he's employed as SO many people are not.

DD's grades came in today and there is room for improvement. If she wants to get into a good college, she better get her grade point average up some, otherwise her options are limited. Otherwise she is doing great.

Middle Child's grades came in yesterday and he REALLY needs to improve his math grade. He keeps getting incompletes and does nothing to fix it. The 7th grade teachers are getting these kids ready for 8th grade by toughening their policies about homework, late work, etc. Good thing, I'm ready to pounce on him like you would not believe. Overall his grades are good but this math thing has got to get better. He's feeling better about himself again. Another plus.

Youngest kid is FINALLY better. No more antibiotics. He was sick off and on (mostly on) since the Tuesday after Christmas and 4 antibiotics later, he's better. Haven't gotten his grades yet (suspect they will be in today's folder from school) but it seems he's doing well. No bad emails or letters home from the teacher.

As for me, I'm on a new eating and exercising thing. I'm watching what I eat and logging every bite into a app on my Itouch, drinking more water and tea. I'm also working out with the Wii Fit Plus program that I bought myself last fall in hopes of losing these 10-15 pounds that I gained last summer. So far, I'm enjoying the different games and routines. In the 9 or so days I've been on this new program that I put myself on, I've lost 2 pounds. My middle child is my cheerleader. He keeps me going. Everyone else is either making fun of me or telling me that it's a fleeting thing that I will do. I REALLY need to loose the stupid weight. I need a cheering section.

No stitching news, I've acquired new stash, but no new stitches put in. I've been reading a bunch so that has been taking up some of my time. Along with a cat with weight and litter box issues, I've been cleaning more than I care to.

Until next time

It sounds like you have been busy. Just not stitching. :( I know the feeling. :)

Good luck with the weight loss.
