The Homemaker's Diary 4/11/2011

Outside my window... it is SPRING!!!

I am thinking... that I need to do some schoolwork.

I am thankful for... my awesome, supportive husband.

From the kitchen... nothing right now but there will be steak, roasted potatoes, and broccoli.

I am wearing... jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers.

I am reading... some chapters for history and sociology. I need to start a new book.

I am hoping... that my dog comes back soon. She has been missing since Saturday and there is no word on her yet.

I am creating...a restful home and some dresses for Bianca plus a no-sew tutu.

I am hearing... Strawberry Shortcake from the playroom and my husband.

Around the house... it is clean except the pile of donations for the thrift shop.

One of my favorite things... is having a few minutes to reflect.

A few plans for the rest of the week... drop donations off, deep clean the bathroom, write a paper for sociology, start on my final projects, and get a gift for my niece's birthday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

The week in review

So, week one of weight watchers went really well. I lost 4lbs. I have a ton of energy because I am eating healthier. I am hoping to drop quite a bit by the time we move. I just have to stick to the plan.

I ordered Bianca her Easter dress. It should be here today. I cannot wait to try it on her. This is the first Easter dress I bought her. Gram always bought her Easter and Christmas outfits. She loved to get things for the kids. Ordering it was bittersweet. I should also be getting  the material to make Bianca tutu. She is going to love it. I have been looking at pettieskirt material as well. I just don't have a lot of room for my sewing machine.

Jimmy has decided I cannot walk him up to school anymore. I have to drop him off at the bottom of the hill. He always looks back to make sure I am watching when he gets to the top. He isn't quite as big as he pretends to be.

Jay and I are starting to get ready for the move. He has a few jobs to finish up here but he should be heading down in May. I am nervous and excited all at once. I cannot wait to move but I am praying Jay finds a good job and apartment. I know that God will provide for us though. I just need to keep faith.

Weight Watchers

I started Weight Watchers yesterday. I have gotten to the point I cannot stand looking in the mirror. I need to lose at least 60lbs to be at a healthy weight and another 10lbs or so to be at my ideal weight. I have been doing well so far.  I have stayed within my points range and not been hungry. I am hoping to add some exercise to my plan soon.
