Checkin' In

Just a little check in.
I'm quite surprised at how busy I've been.
I keep thinking 'oh, tomorrow will be a light day' - and then it comes and it's filled plum full.
I've started working out in the morning with my neighbor again - and then the next thing you know it's supper time, and then bed time.
I haven't even had much swing time lately - but it's all SO incredibly good and wonderful.
I'm ENJOYING my busyness at the moment, and not feeling enslaved by it.
I'm still list-less, but not listless!

Started making the Bootcamp rug, like I did last year - all the Bootcampers sent me jeans that are too big for them - and I'm making the Coach a rug - I've forever thankful to my friend Jaimie for coming and helping me warp the beast of a loom!

It spurred me on to think about my own jeans - the ones that I'm saving for posterity to remind myself of how far I've come.

Size 26 y'all.
I'm in an 8 now - and will probably be in a 6 before all is said and done.
I'm just a few pounds away from my Fiona goal -
So much to tell you guys, and no time to tell it!
I'll be back when it rains!
Photo: Who knew you could have so much fun with a pair of britches. :-)

Aaron is doing fantastic.
He may have his GED as early as July.
The boy is focused.
I'm so proud of him!

Alrighty - I'll be back as soon as I can - but for now I've got to get in the beehives while the weather is perfect for it.

Thinking of you all - have a happy day!
