Currently May

What better way to celebrate the new month of May than a party with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade?!

We had a cold snap last week, so it is super nice sitting here with the window open listening to lawn mowers, children playing, and the breeze gently blowing. Springtime in NC is truly lovely!

We have one daughter entering grad school, one daughter graduating from college, and one daughter graduating high school. So many excellent opportunities are opening up for them and for our son still at home. I am so thankful to have truly terrific children!

My trunk is full of clothes and items that we no longer need or use. It is a simple process to drop them off at the Outreach in town. I just need to DO it.

So, I am trying to eat well and exercise more. It is such a struggle for me. I am SO hungry and to be honest a bit grumpy. Should be better soon. I hope.

I use to have such strong willpower. I need more now though. I cannot fall back to eating junk and being lethargic. I shall overcome!

I have soooo many unfinished TpT projects, so finishing those projects are my yes, hope, AND dream!

  1. Wow! Sounds like you have a lot going on! Congrats to your daughters, and good luck with your exercise and eating habits. It's so tough!

  2. Congrats to your children - such an exciting time in life! I just donated 5 bags of clothes to Goodwill last week and it felt so good! Good luck with exercising and eating better - I've been working so hard to loose weight and work-out and I know how hard it is! Hang in there!

  3. I know what you mean regarding just dropping off the clothes to be donated! I have some piles that need to go as well. Love your "Summer Yes, Hope and Dream"! I need to do the same with my TpT products. Happy May! :)

  4. I'm the same way. My willpower comes in waves, and I need to get with it, especially with summer just around the corner. I have a hard time saying no to anything cheesy or sugary and I know that those are the worst. :-(

    Remember that you have terrific children because they are a reflection of you, so you must be one terrific mom!

  5. You are on the right track for losing weight - keep with it! I need to jump on that bandwagon but I can't stop eating chocolate. I'll be joining you this summer on getting that TpT to do list whittled down (I hope).
