Lots of updates

It's been quite a while since I posted, so it's time that I update you all. First off, my total weight loss is now 33 lbs. I have also lost 15 inches and I am so happy about that. Today, I went to the track and walked 1/4 mile. Now, I know this doesn't seem like a lot, but for someone who went from a sedentary life to walking, it's HUGE!!! I've been on this weight loss journey now for eight weeks and I've never felt better!!

I am no longer working at the museum. I really miss the patrons. I enjoyed it, but circumstances caused me to rethink things and I decided that it was time to go. I just don't have the time or energy in my life to deal with other people's drama. It weighs too much on me, and this year is going to be busy enough with my first child graduating from high school next June. It's amazing how the Lord reveals his desire for you, if you just have faith in him and know that he will answer you.

I'm back to scrapbooking full time. I've sure missed it. I'm working on getting caught up and I have also purged my scrapbook supplies so that now I'll only be using the things that I like. I felt obligated before because I got some free things, plus I was on a LOT of CTs, but now I'm scrapping for me and it feels great!!

I'm still the activities chairman in my ward. I really love the calling and hope they don't decide it's time for me to move on. I enjoy thinking up activities and I need to pray about committee members. Several of mine have moved, so it's time to restock on members. We have a temple day scheduled in August and that it going to be amazing. Then we don't have anything else until October when we have our third annual chili cook off. That's gonna be fun!!

Beka has been in Texas for nearly three weeks and I sure miss her! She'll be home on Tuesday. We'll be heading off to Vegas to get her and then my house will feel normal again. Then in August, hell week for football begins! Ugh! That's gonna be rough on both Zakk and me - unless he gets his license before then. Because hell week means they have to be there in the morning AND in the afternoon! Twice a day to and from! Ugh!

Well, that's about it here. It's been a fairly quiet summer. But, things are going to start kicking in here soon and then the busy life will start again! I miss it.
