Time Off

Posted by on 3 July 2012

I know that I haven’t been blogging much lately. I’m just sort of taking a break from it.  I have many things around the house to get caught up on and summer has just really been off to a busy start.

Things around The Schoolhouse are good.  We’re working hard on finishing up Algebra I this summer.  Miss K has to work on several lessons a day so that we can complete it before starting the new school year.  I’m really proud of her though because she’s handling it all with a smile and good spirit.  I actually think she’s enjoying just working on this one class because she can just focus on it and not have to worry about everything else. 

My weight loss has hit a plateau and I’m so frustrated.  Today I only lost 0.6 lb. and that’s just not enough to suit me.  I’m not even back down to where I was before I gained all that water weight.  That puts me at 8 lbs. to lose in order to reach my 6 month goal.  At this rate, I’m surely not going to make it.  I know I should just accept it and know that everyone hits a plateau, but I’m not eating much and I’m exercising every day.  I’m doing what I should be and I just feel that with the surgery, I really shouldn’t hit the wall like this.  I just want to keep moving ahead and I feel like I’m dead in my tracks right now.  Frustrating!!

Weekends, we’ve been doing chores around the house.  Every night, we go out and water the trees.  We’re just hoping to get them through this long hot summer.  I can’t believe what that little bit of watering has done to our water bill though.  Crazy!!  It’s worth it though if we can get the roots established to the little baby trees.  Even so, it’s going to take years before they’re really trees.  HAHA  Who knows if we’ll ever really see them at their full potential!!

Tomorrow, we’re just going to grill some burgers and enjoy some family time.  Not much you can do when the holiday is in the middle of the week!!  It’s still going to be a good (hot) day and I know we’ll enjoy it.  Lean Green really is looking forward to having a day off.  He works in this heat, so any break is a welcome relief for him.

Next week, I order our curriculum for the next homeschool year and I’ll start planning for next year’s religious education class.  Time to start doing all the prep work!!  I like having things ready and having an idea of ahead of time for what we’ll be doing and putting stuff aside for it.  For me, I can’t plan far enough ahead!!  HAHA

I think that about covers it all.  I’m still trying to post photos for the memes that I participate in.  I really enjoy sharing my photography.  It’s been so hot though that there’s not much to take pics of!!  I’m hoping to go out to the Refuge soon and see if there’s anything new for me to capture.  I’m also going to keep post my Flashback Friday, although there doesn’t seem to be much interest in other joining in.  I have fun with it though and maybe it I keep at it, it’ll spread!!

What do you have going on??

    I just drove through your beautiful state!
    I stopped at a friend’s house in Shawnee for a couple of nights with my entire family. 😀 We had a blast, had never met off line until last Friday. That is a different way of life than most people are used to. But it was wonderful.
    Now we are in Colorado at Fort Carson/Colorado Springs. So beautiful here! and so much cooler right now than where we were! love it.
