I’m joining a fun challenge (or a few). One includes playing with lettering 😀
I decided to get more serious about getting in shape. Helped that I knew that I was going to be doing a job that required lots of walking 😉
I haven’t blogged about my Word of the Year lately. Not because I haven’t been happy. No, I have been SO freaking happy. Things have started to definitely look up. In the past month or so, I’ve gotten a new job, I’ve lost a good chunk of weight (I’m now 1.2 pounds away from my 120lb goal! Then I’m hoping to maybe lower it to 115, and if I can’t, I’ll at least be able to start TONING what I have). I’m feeling more comfortable in my skin. Josh and I are arguing less about stupid stuff. Now we argue about everything we agree with, which is quite hilarious.
Wednesday, Madi had her promotion to 7th grade, aka middle school. Thursday was the last day of school! I have the weekend off! We’re going camping next weekend. I have a guaranteed 40 hours every two weeks, even though I am working all 7 days starting Monday, 😆
I have a great boss, and I even sometimes get a chance to work with Jamie. Seriously, I’m LOVING my life lately.
I just haven’t felt like blogging about it. I don’t know why. It’s just … feeling like I’m almost bragging and I’m scared to jinx it.
But I am happy. Even when I’m crying because my baby girl is growing up, I’m happy with how beautiful she is, inside and out.
She’s also a really talented artist. She drew this Rainbow Dash from Equestria Girls, and it’s amazing! 😀
School starts August 15th this years from the 2013-14 school year. We’re going for a more “mature” theme for the kids. Well, at least something that doesn’t scream “I’m a little kid.” Madison is going into 5th Grade, and Ethan’s going into 3rd, so it fits. We let them choose most of their supplies, the ones that can be customized. Madison is going for a pink and purple theme. Ethan’s is more neutral, but VERY boy, 😆
They have great taste, I think. Madison originally wanted a $35 backpack. At this point in time, she doesn’t need that. Maybe middle school, when she’ll be bringing home mountains of homework. High school, she’s probably going to end up with an almost hiking-style backpack. Poor kid!
Ethan was super excited to find a camouflage one. I like that it was pixelized grays, and not the traditional brown or green version of camo. Just looks better to me.
