Wow, it has been 10 months almost since my last blog post. A lot has happened in this time. As of this writing my health is somewhat better. I am down 63 lbs but still want 150 lbs gone. I am still type 2 diabetic and failed at getting it under control – darn bread and my love of baking!! I have been able to walk 2.3 miles which 10 months ago I will still struggling walking on the treadmill for more than 2 minutes and dancing longer than 5 minutes.
With Love Studio has closed for good. My designing has majorly slowed down but we shall see what the future holds. I hope to start school in May for Medical Billing & Coding and taking some graphic and web design classes on the side. Here soon I will be an empty nester – my youngest will be graduating from High School in a few months and starting college. She does plan on staying at home and going to community to keep her costs down – smart idea. My oldest will be getting married this August and has already been talking about making me a grandma next year – we shall.
I am now 43 years old and ready to travel and tackle some of my fears. My DH is working in a copper mine 2 hours away from home, so I only see him 4 days every 13 days. We will be getting our first Vacation in 4 years.
We have a friend of mine staying with us currently who has two beautiful little girls that are my god daughters and I help take care of them while she is at work. The oldest is my youngest daughter’s half sibling – yes, this is the kind of world we live in that because of divorce and crazy relationships, siblings can still be in each other’s lives because their moms put aside any bad feelings and allow them to get to know each other – but then become best friends because of how much they are alike – hehe. I have the opportunity to help home school her until we can get her into a preschool program. Her youngest is 4 months old and boy does she already hold her bottle, tries to talk to us, is taking a single step, sitting assisted and so much more.
I am also focusing on my faith more and working on bible journaling products to help you study the scriptures and working on a new adventure that I hope we will be ready by June. I can’t wait.
