It's about time you heard me pour forth with good news, huh?
For weeks now, you've sat patiently by while I moaned and groaned about the various ills that had befallen our family. None of them life shattering, but just frustrating enough to be gripe-worthy.
But... yesterday three great things happened. Three things that made me jump for joy.
First, we got the call that D. had tested negative. Lemme tell ya, there was some happy dancin' goin' on in this household. Before I got off the phone with the doctor's office, D. was clad in his swimsuit and lookin' for a towel.
Secondly, we GOT A CONTRACT ON OUR HOUSE IN GEORGIA. It's no secret how bad the market is right now...so the fact that we got a contract in less than 2 months is nothing short of a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
And finally, I joined Weight Watchers a week ago so that my hubby and I could go through the program together. Last night was my first weigh-in and I was so nervous. I truly was hoping for two pounds. I felt like I had lost more but didn't dare get my hopes up for fear of becoming discouraged. So, when I got to the desk to weigh-in, I climbed up on the scale and the receptionist said, "wow did you have a good week!" I glanced down at my card and watched her write -6.4 #... I lost six and a half pounds last week! As hard as it was to not stray from the Core Plan (the program we chose), it was rewarding to know that I had achieved my first small goal of losing weight that week. Onward!
So...good news reigned supreme over the past 24 hours of my life. Thanks for being there and for being interested through the good and the bad times. Hopefully, the trend will continue upward!
