I went back to my blog posts from this time last year to see if I had made any specific goals...or silly claims. The funny thing is that I was making a stand to get more healthy, and I think I did that for a while, but man these last couple of months I have just ballooned right up.
Sad state of affairs really.
The thing that is the same this year as last is my cough. Last year this time I was trying to exercise and cough at the same time. Seems that's my goal this year too. Sure wasn't one I wanted to repeat.
S and I are trying to work out together again. We measured our body parts tonight (bleck and double bleck!) and started a better diet regime.
I hope to lose 20lbs by the time we leave for ET in April. I think that's a totally do-able goal in 3 months. So that's my focus.
D and I signed up for the Shamrock 1/2 Marathon in March so I will have to train hard for that in the coming months as well.
A fun new thing happening this year is I am getting a new master bathroom!! YAY! Our old one was tiny, tiny. D decided to take over the wall closet that our bathroom backed up to and make it into a bathroom suite. It's not all that huge I guess, but it's gonna be pretty! The joys of having a handy husband and leftovers from commercial jobs. We have a ton of gorgeous tile in the garage just waiting to be put into a bathroom. ;o) I have some before pics (Tarah) and will be posting them soon.
The boys are still talking about Wyoming. They are convinced we are going back this summer and ask about it almost every hour. It was the first thing E asked D about when he picked him up from school today. N says next time we are staying for 20 days and 21 nights...lol I don't know where they think the money is going to come from to be gone that long, but we will sure try to get back soon. The ties that bind those kids (and adults) are strong.
Only 3 more months until we leave for Ethiopia! Can you believe it?! The team is excited... I am excited. I think the church is getting excited... if the amount of people that showed up for the Moe's fundraiser is any indication then we are well supported. God is going to do great things!
My prayer this year for us all is that we keep our eyes and our hearts open to what God wants for us. May we be willing to stand for Him or bow to Him when needed. May we be willing to think out side of the box, out side of our comfort zone... live a live worthy of the words 'Well Done Good and Faithful Servant"
