Okay folks, first of all thank you for your wonderful comments of support and encouragement on my last blog. You really have a way of lifting my spirits and helping me put things in perspective. I appreciate it so very much and want you to know how important you have become to me. That being said, can I say....I am sooooo excited about actually meeting some of you fabulous women in Chicago!
Next, my apologies for not having anything to donate to the sisterhood yet. Sadly I can still wear everything except one pair of pants that I'm saving for my Jared photo. When I lost 80 pounds a few years ago, I purged everything that didn't fit me, I gave all of my clothes away and then started gaining weight again. So, in an effort to slow the progression, I didn't do much shopping, I vowed to stay uncomfortable til I got my mojo back and started losing weight. So....when I do have clothes to pass on I will, but for now, I'm shopping in my closet and enjoying some things that haven't seen daylight in a year or two.
Last night my son had his first football game of the season. My son goes to the same High School that I went to. It's a relatively small private school and many of the parents were classmates of mine, it was weird and wonderful and very nostalgic. I cannot believe that he and my step-daughter are sophomores. I don't know how this happened. Then yesterday, my oldest niece, well she turned 30. So, all of a sudden, I'm realizing that a substantial amount of time has passed in my lifetime. I'm not worried and I don't particularly feel old all the time. But, on days like yesterday I would say I feel a little more "mature" than other days.
I'm really glad it's Friday, although I don't know how much rest I'm going to get. My youngest son has Cotillion tonight and of course the boys have to get together at my house before to spray on too much cologne and talk strategy. I do love my life and I'm glad that so many of you are in it.
