This 'n That

Well, I realized I completely missed this week's "Weighing In" post, but it's a little late now, so I will just catch up on Monday! I was able to maintain last week's weight in spite of Easter and my birthday, so I'm happy about that. :)

It feels like this has been kind of a whirlwind week. Tuesday was a pretty normal day, Weds. we had friends over for part of the day, which was super fun, yesterday was errand day, and today Jim was home due to the rain, so we've been tackling a few projects. Doing some decluttering in our house--so far today we have given away our old TV, a box and a bag of clothes, and moved some other stuff from the office down to the garage. Hooray! The house is breathing a small sigh of relief. :)

I don't know about you guys, but my house is in serious need of a deep spring-clean! Starting next week, I am going to be challenging myself to a very thorough cleaning frenzy. I'm planning to focus on one or two rooms each week till I am done. For next week, I am going to start in the bathrooms. I'm planning to deep clean everything, reorganize the cupboards & drawers, and see if I can get rid of some stuff in the process. Anyone want to join in? I'll hopefully be posting my progress as I go along.

Well, I just wanted to give you all a little quick update on us . . . hopefully later today or tomorrow I'll have time to post some pictures from earlier this week--we got a few nice ones when we were hiking on my birthday, as well as some of a rainbow that we saw on Weds. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I'll gladly join in on your cleaning frenzy challenge! My house is in serious need as well! The more public areas of the house look okay on the surface, but I know the awful truth...

Glad you have had a fun week! It sounds like it has definitely been busy. Isn't that always the way? I think that my house could use a spring cleaning, too. I have made several long lists & gotten a few things marked off. I tackled the weekly dust/sweep/mop routine tonight so that I can work in the yard tomorrow. It needs as much attention as the house! Oh my sister would say, it'll all be here tomorrow. :-)
Have a great weekend!

I also had planned to do Spring Cleaning in this month, and get rid of things we don't use or need anymore! :) I hope to start soon, and will probably get some help from my nieces to watch the kids while I tackle some rooms! :)
Also, I know I haven't commented in several weeks about how I am doing with the weight loss/fitness challenge.
For several weeks I was taken up with Dr.s appointments to get my Thyroid figured out, and then we were gone to NC on vacation. Now I am on trying to catch up on your blog!!! :) It is fun to read your entries!
Anyhow, I have noticed some positive changes since I have been on the Thyroid Med., one being that over the last couple weeks I have lost 6 lbs. That has been such a huge encouragement to me, and I am not even on a full dosage yet. I also am less tired and have more energy which feels great to me too!!! :)
So, I need to get into a regular exercise routine now, and I am sure I will see HUGE differences!
I am encouraged by your progress as well!!! :)
Have a great day and Take Care!!! :) ~Kathleen
