~I woke up this morning to Celine belting (in my head, of course) "All By Myself". Yesterday marked the beginning of some quiet time in the house for me. Trace took the littles to Indiana to see his parents for 4 whole days! So I am planning on doing a lot of Bible studying and major cleaning and organizing to prepare for an upcoming garage sale while I have the house to myself. (And yes, cleaning and organizing is what I do when I can do anything in the world without the munchkins around!) I tried to start sorting for the sale last week, but with each item I brought out from hiding on the back of a shelf, Remy would say 'I have been looking for that! It's my favorite!'. Needless to say, it will be much easier without them right in the middle of it!
~It's also Biggest Loser Week for me. I have decided that while they are gone, I am going to do my best to blast off as many calories as I can at the gym. I am shooting for two workouts per day, including several Turbo Kick classes, which are my newest addiction. I am hoping to lose 4 pounds this week, but we'll see how that goes... In total I'm down 7- WooHoo!
~Yesterday on the way into church from the van, Halle was singing 'Oh, oh, oh' with great emotion. I asked her what she was singing, and very sternly she looked at me with hands on hips and said 'Umm, Single Ladies' as though I should have known, and with all the sarcasm of a teenager. I am seriously in trouble with this child!
~It's storming here this morning, and I love waking up to the giant bomb sound of thunder (not really...). Actually I had just gotten up and my sweet Remy called to tell me that PawPaw is going to teach him how to use a big water gun. Great. So happy that he is learning valuable life skills.
Have a great day- I'm off for workout #1 at the gym!
