I've been gone for almost 2 weeks and my goodness, it has flown by. But oh, it was good for me. I spent time in the mornings with God, instead of searching through blogs and emails. I spent time relaxing in the evenings, trying to unwind from an extremely taxing time at work. (State data collection is today and I have been feverishly working to make sure there are no errors...bleh)
So, here are a couple of things to catch you up on. My daughter had a birthday Tuesday and turned 17 years old. Isn't she cute with her brothers? They are so goofy and we rarely get serious pictures in our family. :) And no, she is not super short. The boys are just extremely tall. We had a family dinner and her two older brothers and sister-in-law (not pictured, sad to say) came over for food and fun.
Also, I have lost some more weight, giving me a total weight loss of 16 pounds!!!! How cool is that? I'm just thrilled my clothes are feeling better on me. I'm not ready for a smaller size yet, but soon, I think.
I've been thinking through an idea for a book series. Contemporary romance. Weird for me, but the idea is consuming me. I had thought to join in the fun with the NaNo month, but I just haven't gotten a good plot yet. I've done the character sketches for the main characters, but haven't gotten "the map" laid out. And to do NaNo...I would HAVE to have a map.
I've missed all my blogging friends and hope to slip back into a more palatable schedule. I hope to get reaquainted with you all! :)
