40: Day 19

I'm almost half way in my 40 day journey to 40 and so far I'm not impressed.  Nothing has really changed from 39 except I've been given this terrible label of "non-youth".  Now I'm just a kid to people in their mid-60's and above.  To my kids, I'm ancient.  My 9 year old David asked me last week if Christmas lights had been invented when I was his age!  Errr! 

I have enjoyed the weight loss even though I really can't tell I've lost anything yet so I guess I like the idea of losing weight and getting healthier.  I have not enjoyed the diet.  I keep telling myself that its not about what I can't have to eat, but rather its about what I don't want to eat so I can be healthier.  So far myself is not real impressed with what I'm self-advising.  However, I continue.

Today was a long day with daddy away at a tournament.  I took the boys to run errands with me, but otherwise we had a quiet day of movies, reading, naps and such.  I helped  Grace list some purses on eBay and listed some old homeschooling books that I had missed in my last clean out.

Then this evening when Ed got home and after the smaller ones bedtimes, we ran to get groceries with Grace and Corrine in charge for an hour.  I am simply amazed how fast these kids can consume 3 gallons of milk, but tonight we were completely out.

I'm hoping for a good nights rest since most of the kids are over their colds now and should sleep through the night.

  1. I was looking at your list of what your family goes through in a month...milk, bread, etc. It looks so much like our list! It's truly amazing how fast our kids can whiz through our weekly groceries.
