Is it possible that January is almost over?? What do I have to show for another month lived?
Kiki and I took a "Mental Health" day yesterday… we stayed home, (it was actually her "in classroom day") did no school, layed around in our jammies, cuddled and watched movies – all day. Oh, except for when we went outside for a couple hours and built snow forts! We got over 3 inches of snow yesterday – that’s alot for us. We really needed that day! We are feeling a bit overwhelmed, because of life changes we are considering – more on that later! Today it is back to life-as-usual: School, housework, pet play, etc. And blogging, of course! ooh, and maybe I’ll sneak in a game of solitaire… I’m getting addicted to that….
Last night we watched part of "’Biggest Loser". Holey cow… I was looking at these women who are quite overweight (I mean, duh, that’s the point of the show, right?) and I’m realizing I weigh more than some of them. It’s weird how my mind somehow hasn’t quite wrapped itself fully around the ‘largeness-that-is-me’….it’s like anorexia in reverse… I don’t see the reality of my body….am I really that huge??!! Of course, the answer is "yes". I am red-faced with shame as I tell you that we watched that show while enjoying some ice cream…actually, it wasn’t all that enjoyable after all.
It’s time to pop in the shower – I need to run to Tar-zhay before taking Kiki to Awanas tonight, pick up some "good-bye and good-luck" gifts for the two girls we’ve been carpooling with, as it is their last day tomorrow – they are moving out of state. To Seattle, the lucky dogs! I am jealous! I really loved living there…the rain didn’t bother us at all. I will be back to share our current prayer need on the whole "life-change" dealie soon!
