Almost Dancing...

Today, I wanted to share just a couple of things. I'm making this quick, because the kids are on Spring Break (for 3 weeks) and they NEED my computer to keep them from being BORED. They are cracking me up! Why is it I have so much to do and they seem to have nothing???

Today, I was at 74 pounds lost. I was hoping to get my 75 pound goal today, but I was right on the verge for the second day in a row. But I'm doing lots of housework and packing, so it's going to come off soon.

Also, I am wearing size 8 jeans for the first time I can remember as an adult. Do I have a muffin top? Oh, big time. But can I breathe and move and work? YES YES YES!!! It's amazing how something as silly as a size on a tag can brighten your day!

Finally, we are looking at a house this week. Keep your fingers crossed that this one is "THE ONE." I've had it saved on my account for months, but we haven't looked at it yet. So Wednesday night is the night we find out. It's got 4 bedrooms and wait for it... 3 toilets!!!! Seriously, I never thought I would be so excited about toilets, but I'm doing a major happy dance inside. Plus, it's big enough for our family to expand, it's in our price range, and our dear friends the Williams live just a block down. It's mid-construction, which is perfect for some do-it-yourselfers like me and my man. We aren't scared of drywall and painting. We kinda like that type of work.

So that's all the stuff going on in our world. Things are looking up! We are joyfully embracing the challenges ahead, and feeling great about making some big moves for our family.

Now all I need is to hit that 163 tomorrow, and I can really dance!!!

(Oh, yes, there will be horrid white girl dancing if I make it! I'll be posting that video for sure. Make sure you check back on Tuesday morning to see if I made it!)

3 toilets???!! Wow! Sounds like my idea of heaven! I share 1 with 3 males and it is no fun! So happy for you! Looks like work really does pay off!

Cannot wait for the dance video! Seriously, it'll be epic!

Wow. Keep in mind, though, once you have three toilets, you have to CLEAN three toilets. ;)

I'm so excited and happy for you!

How exciting.. I tend to think like Angela though. Three toilets to clean... ick!!

So proud of you, girl! Pretty soon there will be nothing left to you.;-)

I think I'm at a total of 59 pounds right now. I can't even believe it. Of course, it's only taken me like 4 I've lost and gained more than that in the passed 2 years. But, I won't complain because I'm at a weight I haven't been in 11 years or so.
