Hello my long lost bloggy peeps. I haven't forgotten you. Truly I haven't. I have just been overwhelmed with life as of late! But I'm missing my bloggy BFF's to share it all with!
Are you ready for one giant blog-share? Okay...you asked for it!
First - it's coming up on my 1 year blogiversary! Unbelieveable! I feel like I've known y'all forever! In my first blog post, I spoke of my goals for the year. I talked about my desire to become more organized, more fit, and more prepared (food storage specifically). At this point my food storage is much more substantial than at this time last year. I have slacked off the past few months due to finances...but still feeling good about the progress I've made!
I have lost just over 40 lbs (yes, you all now know that I was super fat!). I'm still not where I'd like to be, and am attacking it again with a vengeance! Organization still eludes me. Although the pantry and bathroom cupboards I organized have stayed that way! Yay me! Now to attack the rest of my house...and my LIFE! So, I am going to continue working on those 3 areas in my life.
A big change that happened to our family over the holidays is the new church calling my husband received. He has been called as 2nd counselor in our Bishopric. If you're LDS, you're familiar with what this will mean for our family. If you're not, basically, meetings, meetings, meetings! But it is important work, looking after the welfare of the families in our ward. Hubby feels very inadequate, and overwhelmed, but I know he will be blessed with what he needs in order to accomplish what is asked of him.
I continue to serve in the Young Women's organization, which means BOTH of us have to go to Mutual on Tuesday nights, which means we have to drag all our kids along, and they get to play in the nursery while we are with the Young Men and Young Women in the ward...kind of an adventure, to say the least!
We are blessed to be surrounded by amazing and supportive friends. Coming up I'll share our New Years Eve experience, as well as our current involvement in a neighborhood WAR! (We are winning).
Part of the reason I have been so missing, is I have felt so blah and unmotivated. I hear this is common for January...but I'm really starting to get on my own nerves with this attitude! So as of NOW, I'm BACK! And I'm on fire...to accomplish all the things I desire...especially getting back to all my blogging chicas!
I hope you all are having a fabulous New Year, and I'm excited to share all our adventures for 2010!
