I still haven't given my blog a facelift. I need to figure out how to get my PSP over here to the laptop so I can make my new banners here instead of going to the desktop. I'm spoiled to the laptop now. LOL!!

I had a great time at the retreat, It was an unexpected surprise. Susie was very sweet to invite all of us and the only "fee" for Scrapbooking the entire weekend was a small donation to the missionaries at her church and the donated of needed things to the local womens shelter. We had a fantastic time and I got to make a few new Scrapbooking friends as well!

Things here have been going along. I'm still attending the weight watchers meetings. I've lost 18 lbs so far. I'm feeling a lot better too. Breathing easier, Sleeping better. I've been encouraging Ashley to make healthier choices as well. We've been going to the park, we're trying for 3 days a week to walk together as a family and let Ashley play and get excercise. the weathers been so nice it really makes you want to be outside more. I'm really bad about staying home inside the house a lot. I know it's not healthy, mentally or physically and having the family get outside with me makes me want to be out there more.

Of course I'm STILL knitting :) as if that would ever stop.. haha! Let's see right now OTN I have My afghan that I've been working on forever. but I've been working on it more in the last couple of weeks so I've made some progress on it. I'm also working on a Central Park Hoodie for myself, A pair of ankle socks for myself, the sweater for Ashley, If I don't finish it soon it will end up being for Abbey instead.. LOL!! and I think that's about it for now. I did finally finish my fulled Lopi Tote... I'll post some pictres before and after...

a few weeks ago Jake took a day off work and we went with Ashley's class on a field trip to seminole, OK to the Children's museum there. They had a lot of interested things for kids, everything was hands on and the kids had a lot of fun... here is a picture of Ashley from that. Jake and I got assigned two other girls from the class beside Ashley.. it was difficult keeping them altogether for sure. But we had fun. It poured down rain on the way home.

I guess that's about it for now. I've been bad about posting. I know. I haven't been on the computer as much as I usually do and I finally installed my Sims2 on here and so I've been playing that now and then :) So fun.

Until Next time.

Your tote you made is so cute! And that’s wonderful you’ve lost 18 lbs and I’m glad to hear you’ve been feeling better in the process. That’s very cool you guys went with Ashley’s class to the Children's museum in Seminole, OK! Roni’s class went one year when we lived in Norman and she loved the trip! It sounds like you’re loving the laptop! One of these days I intend to get one for myself… I also need to install my Sims 2 on this computer, then maybe I wouldn’t spend so much time online in my free time! LOL
