Just another typical Sunday....

I actually slept until 10:30 this morning! Yippee!! I normally get up around 7:15 to get the kids & hubby off to school/work. Even on the weekends, I get up early. But I was up late last night working on orders, and must have needed extra snoozing time.

So, as usual, I spoke to my favorite person in the world....my sister Denise. Words cannot express how much I love that woman! She always knows the right things to say. Even if its not what I want to hear, she sets me straight...she is my true North :-) Anyway, all that mushy crap out of the way. She is on a quest....to help the man she loves. He is having some heart trouble, and she wants to help him get healthy...and her too. I couldn't be prouder. They have both cut back on their smoking, and are trying to eat right....and also not drink as much. I'm beyond thrilled about all this, but especially the smoking. I need her around to take care of me when i'm old...we have plans! We are going to sit on the front porch, rocking in our rocking chairs & just enjoy each other. So, she needs to stay around for a long while. She is on the right track....Congrats sister!!!!! We have set a goal of losing 10 lbs by Christmas! The worst time in the world to diet is the holidays, but dammit, we are going to do it!!! No excuses....just do it! I need to get moving again. I was losing weight like crazy in the spring....and was well on my way. But, I went on vacation, came back & made excuses. So, my goal is to start walking again, and get the Wii fit back out. I have a long road ahead......but I didn't get this fat overnight!!! Wish me luck :-)

Oh, and Miami won again!!!! Woohooo!!!!!! My team is doing very well this year...and its about time. Racing is almost over. Next week is it. I haven't been much of a fan this year....its just not the same since Dale died.

Well, its 10:30 pm, and my kitchen needs cleaned. Thanks for reading!
