What a wonderful Wednesday already

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Another rainy day here. My youngest was supposed to have a walking field trip down town to the library then to get ice cream before heading back to school, but I am wondering if that will happen today. The kids will hopefully get to make it up tomorrow if it doesn't happen today. They are all looking so forward to it.
My middle son, starts his finals today. He was up late last night getting all assignments ready and studying. He is NOT in a good mood today. So negative. I told him think positive and positive things just might happen. Don't count yourself out!
My oldest son, is in a place in his life where he has to make some big decisions that are making him frustrated. I spent much of my day yesterday talking things out with him. He has been offered an opportunity that would be amazing for him, but he has to fix it first. I have no doubt in my mind he can succeed and be happy taking this position. But I also understand that no amount of money is worth your sanity. He is 21 and learning how people take advantage of his good nature, work ethic, and dependability. He is going through the motions of learning to not be a doormat. He will be making the decision to accept this position within the next day or so. I told him to write down all his concerns and talk it over with his boss. Maybe they can come to some kind of understanding so he can feel more comfortable taking this promotion.
My husband was called out at 1:30 a.m. this morning and has texted me he should be home by noon or earlier since he was called out. So I need to ignore the rain, listen to the birds chirp, open the doors, turn on the fans, and allow the smell of beautiful lilacs and peonies fill my house. I am excited to get on my bike and ride at least an hour! My legs usually feel tired and sore every day, but today I am good to go! I was shocked when I got on the scale today. And had lost a total of 1.5 lbs in the last 24 hours. That was good to see. My bsl is around 100!!!!! and my BP is good, so everything is finally coming together making me feel like I am accomplishing my goal for this month. Well minus a few pounds but my health is more important. I am on a roll and see that check point I can't wait to hit! I am so excited!
I know there will be lulls in my weight loss so I am going to enjoy them when I have them. I work SO hard every day to get better. I wont be held back anymore!
Well, off to my day! Got to fit in as much as possible before hubby gets home. emoticon
