What to say

I finally figured out why it's so hard for me to blog anymore. My kids are gone. I used to have funny stories, things they said and pictures to post but now it's just me. All day. And it's not like I lead a glamorous life. Five days a week my life consists of:
-getting up
-getting the kids up
-getting them ready and off to school
-getting myself ready and off to the gym
-working out
-doing stuff around the house
-waiting for the kids to get home
-getting the kids ready for bed
-watching The Office and Roseanne
-lights out at 10:30

Are you still awake? Thrilling isn't it? There has to be something worth writing about doesn't there? Let me think real hard.

OK. Here goes.

Between August 2009 and December 22, 2009 I lost 18 1/2 pounds. I still have a bit to go but am so proud of what I have accomplished so far.

I went jean shopping yesterday and the girl in the Gap dressing room called me petite. Ummm I don't think I have ever been called petite. Ever.

I love my friends. I don't have a lot of friends but I absolutely love my close friends. I love that I can be who I am with them. No false pretenses. We just sort of fit together. Good and bad. We each bring something to the table and I love that.

I haven't scrap booked in a year. It's a shame because I have so much to do but I'm just not feeling it. I'm hoping the feeling will come back soon.

Austin has graduated out of the kids section and is now into young men's. Oy vey.

I totally understand what you mean with not having anything to blog about. I have a baby at home, and I still don't feel like I have anything to write about. But trust me, I love to read whatever you write so even if its what you did over the weekend or what you had for lunch, just know I'm reading!

i think you're life is VERY interesting :O) heck, you could just write all day about how much time you have now that you have no kids at home. i'm just glad some people still blog. but if you still find yourself w/nothing to do,you can always come over to my house and i'll put you to work....
i'm proud of you too. i hope i can follow in your footsteps. i knew you'd be able to do it. you're a very determined person when you put your mind to it. you look wonderful. you should be rewarding yourself w/lots of great jeans!

Even if you don't feel like you have anything to write about, I still love to read it. Austin is growing up so fast. That is just hard to believe. I don't think I've scrapbooked in probably about that long either. Maybe someday! And I think you look great. Awesome job on all the hard work at the gym!

That weight loss is amazing! Honestly, I would never have guessed you even had 18 to lose; you look great! But it probably feels so good to have the extra energy and all that too. Way to go. :)
