Oh my...I have been neglecting my little blog and it's become a festering breeding ground for all kinds of spam! I'm still here.....I have a lot to catch up on...LIFE has been happening all around me and I have just been so wrapped up in things that I haven't had the urge to sit down and blog. My son is in his 11th year of school at home and I have to say...it's challenging. Daughter starts a full time job soon (thank goodness) and Walter is growing like a weed.
I must say, this Washington weather is really getting to me and I am no longer enjoying living in the Pacific Northwest. The lack of sunshine can really zap your spirits and not only that, I am so sick of the muddy mess being tracked in by the dog. Why people voluntarily live here is beyond me. My heart will always be in New England and I can really see myself going back there someday. I did enjoy living in Colorado...the mountains were beautiful but it's landlocked...and I like living near the ocean. Washington is a bit like New England in that aspect and it's much more lush than Colorado but just too darn wet !
I have recently gone off white flour, sugar and almost all carbs and as a result, have lost 15 pounds. Some of you may recall I did this a few years ago and lost quite a bit of weight (25 lbs) but I also got gall stones from the rapid weight loss and had to have my gall bladder out...lol. I am more motivated now as I am eager to make some lasting life changes...diet and exercise being one of them, and really evaluating my life. I've had quite a bit of unhappiness and I know it's not how the Lord wants me to live my life. I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out my role and my life's purpose and I still, still don't have it sorted out yet.
All is well and I am truly Blessed...I have my health and that of my family. I am realizing that I need to put myself first because I have been last for so long and that nobody can make me happy except myself and the choices I make......disrespect and bad feelings no longer have a place in my life and I have a great new outlook.
I am on Pinterest and Facebook occasionally so if any of my wonderful friends would like to link up...let me know :) I promise too much time won't go by before I post again.
(...and I very much dislike the changes Blogger has made...anyone else? )
Have a Blessed Week!
