Wow. Its been awhile. Let me give an excuse... my laptop keeps freezing up when I'm using the internet. In fact, I've been trying hard to make blog-rounds, but I only ever happen to visit two or three blogs and then 'bam,' my computer freezes. So, sorry if I haven't been by your blog recently! I've started from the top, started from the bottom... so those in the middle probably haven't been visited for a long while.

So, what have I been up to?

-Went to a writers' conference last Saturday. It was great; really inspired me. I'm trying to write at least 2 pages each day. Okay, maybe I should aim for just one a day. So that's taking up my time. But I'm so excited. I have over 100 pages now. GO ME!

-Its been a bit chilly the past two days, but before that when we were having nice weather I was taking Erica out a lot. So that had me away from my comp.

-I've been teaching my daughter's age group on Wednesday nights. Granted, there's only four to six kids a night. But I normally spend a lot of my free time Tuesdays and Wednesdays getting ready for it.

-FINALLY got to visit my brother's family in Delaware last Sunday. [You may recall that whole debacle when I was supposed to visit w/ my sister, but Erica and I got insanely sick.]

-My sister has been pressuring me into Facebook. So a lot of internet-time goes into that.

-I watched "The Breakup" this morning. SO good. It got a lot of bad reviews, but I liked it. It made me cry, which in my mind is a good thing.

-Erica's been needing a close eye recently. She's developed a love of cutting things; so I need to make sure she doesn't get her hands on important papers.

-Guess what?!?!?! I've lost around 8 pounds. I didn't want to say earlier that I was starting Weight Watchers again, for fear that it would jinx me. But now that things have been going well, I shall share. I'm so incredibly excited!!!

-My fatigue has not been getting better at all; I have a doctor appointment scheduled with the nicest doctor at the practice, and I'm gonna beg for a B-12 shot. It can't hurt me at all; it'll either do nothing OR make me better [which is what I'm hoping for].

-Erica got a hair cut. So cute! The back was getting long in some parts but not in others, so it looked really uneven. Plus it was just so hard to comb out the knots. So I took her to get it cut. And I really like it; she doesn't get knots in her hair and its incredibly easy to comb.

Well, I guess that's all I'll share. There's much more, but I don't want to go on forever. Besides, my daughter is wanting some lunch.

BTW: When I finished typing this post, I pressed the publish button. Then, right as I was pressing the button to 'view blog,' my computer froze. I'm SO lucky it wasn't sooner!

my ever so cool sis- Sunday we'll take pictures, okay? Oh, and I just got my hair cut today too. Lovin' it!

Crazy working mom- Yes, I'll share the picture soon.

Hi there Becky! Welcome to HYC! 8 pounds lost - that's great. I think you and I are at that point where if we keep losing weight, we'll start to really notice it in our clothes.
