I haven't posted in a while, but there hasn't really been much to post. This past week has been pretty low key.

There was revival at church, but Ronnie and I didn't make it...God really kicked my butt about it this morning at church too. I should have gone...God doesn't buy silly excuses. I took Ethan to youth group today. We made a card for one of the members that just found out she has a brain tumor. Other than that he ran around like a wild child.

The inside of the house is finished. I was called over there on Thursday to sign off on the trim crew's work. So now all the flooring is in place, all sheetrock is up and cracks have been repaired, all connections between the two halves are in place, and the handrail and OSB are in place upstairs. I think that all the company has left is the electricity and plumbing. We still have to get the well, septic system and porch done. After all of that we will close. It's getting close.

That's when all the real work will begin. We have accumulated a ton of stuff and I want to sort through it as we move so we can unload what we don't need. I have already started refinishing Ethan's furniture so it will hopefully be ready by the time we move.

I've discovered that there are entirely too many colors of paint to choose from. I picked up at least 25 or 30 paint chips at Lowe's this weekend and still have no idea what color to paint anything! I've got to recruit an interior designer or something.

I quit WW a couple weeks ago and have watched to scale inch back up a couple of pounds. Over the past two weeks I haven't walked as much nor I have I paid much attention to what I eat. I've got to get over all of that! Yesterday I was up and gone for my 3 mile walk by 6:30 (yes, a.m.) and I'm making a personal commitment to eat better this week. I would be disgusted if I gained back everything I've lost!

I think that's about all I have for today. Have a great week!
