I have gotten off track...

Healthy Update:

Between worrying and searching for ways to get the last bit of money we need to close on our house I haven’t done as well as I should on getting healthy.

I have added milled flaxseed to my breakfast and anything else I can think of. I add it to oatmeal, Great Grains by Post and my yogurt. I love the flavor and I can feel the benefits. Does that sound weird? Well it is true. I have also added a salad a day for one meal. I sprinkle it with almond slices, egg slices and chicken. Boy it is getting to be a staple. I have even added some weight watchers snacks. I love chocolate and this way I can have some and not feel too bad. Working out has gone out the window this week. I have missed my torture session both Tuesday and Thursday and I think my thighs are mad at me for missing it.


Last Saturday I checked the mail and guess what I found? I found a big envelope for me. Yea!!! I was so happy. My longest friend Jennifer from Alaska sent me an apron I won and another wonderful apron for crafting. I need to take pictures, but haven’t been worrying about my looks to much while I get the house ready to move. One day I will add pictures of these wonderful gifts. I never get mail and I am sure that is from never sending any and it is something I am working on.

I am getting very excited about moving. I need our own home. Our house (soon to be ours) is so cute, whenever I go look at it I feel like I have come home. Our family continues to pray that this will work out. We are scheduled to close November 7th. I have to say the ideas are flowing and I can’t wait to make that house a home.

For Family Home Evening this Monday we did a lesson on unity. For an activity we cleaned the garage. You know what I mean. We made sure the Christmas decorations were in the Christmas bins and that each boy put their stuff in their bins. It was so much fun. I loved the time we worked together to organize our home.

Have you ever heard the phrase “Don’t mess with Momma Bear”? My eight year old is behind in his reading. He has been diagnosed with a learning problem with letters. However that boy is brilliant in math. Well he is in a special class that frequently (too frequently in my book) combines with a regular class. Now they want a book report and project. Eric and I feel like he shouldn't do this in the regular class. I mean how cool would it be to do a report on “The Cat in the Hat” to kids that are doing theirs on the magic tree house or something? Boy I wrote his teacher a cute note and I am stressing to see what will become of this. Ugh I am so frustrated about this.

Now that I have caught you up on "What's going on here" I'd better go.

I love flaxseed too. I think yogurt actually tastes better with it mixed in.
Congrats on the house thing :)
