Where Does The Time Go?

Tomorrow is the last morning I get to sleep in. Tuesday it is back to getting up at 5:20 am and helping the kiddos get off to school.

Where did the summer go?

In fact, where did this last year go?

It seems like only yesterday that we moved into this apartment. Heck, it seems like only yesterday that Ryan was born. It doesn't seem right that I am 37 years old, and that next year is my 2o year HS reunion. I have no intentions of going, but it's just crazy thinking that I have been out of school for so long.

When did I get so old????

On a different note, I got on the scale the other day...and was pleasantly surprised. Seems I have lost about 21 pounds in the last couple of months. I blame losing our food stamps...no money to buy food means there is no food in the house to eat. The sucky thing is that I am so heavy, people don't notice the loss. But that's okay. I tend to do better when people don't know I am losing. I am hoping I can keep this up, which shouldn't be too hard with the kids back in school. I may even break out the old Richard Simmons tapes.

We went to the movie in the park the other night, and I was kind of disappointed when we left early. It's times like that when I hate being depended on other people for transportation. Sure, the kids weren't watching the movie...they were playing frisbee. I wasn't watching either...I was too busy gossiping with Missy. I hated that they left because we left...it felt like I ruined the whole night. But, the time we were there was great! Kasi won something this time, a crock pot cook book. I was looking through it before, and there are a few recipes I would like to try. I also came home with the breakfast cookbook Missy won last time...she knew I was drooling over it, and let me have it...she has such a huge heart!...and there are tons of recipes in that one that are calling my name.

Other than that, it has been a quiet, boring weekend, which is what I enjoy.

I hope you had a good one, too.

I KNOW WHAT YA MEAN! The summer was just here and now its gone!! Swoosh----right past us!
But now the fall is knocking at the door, more adventures to enjoy!

I loved other night! Alex did too!
You didn't ruin anything- I was sitting there thinking, man we have to do this again, at the park, with just all of us-Colleen and your mom included but minus the tons of other people!

I love visiting with you guys my face hurts for hours afterward from laughing!
Alex was sooo pooped that night. He got a hot shower and was out. I stood there looking at him and I was thinking about how tired Ryan was! Poor ol'guys!

Alright, you have the number, give me a call sometime. I am going to try and come to the GRANDEST place on earth, Chesnee, tomorrow, heehee! Try is the word though! We'll see!
Take care!!
