Some scrappy time...

Geez! I hadnt' scrapped a thing since Chon and I had our Scrapapalooza! I don't even know why! I just can't seem to find the time during the day with both kids here and by the time they are in bed, I am pooped and don't feel like scrapping at all! I'm still too lazy to upload my pages from that weekend, so if anyone wants to see them, you can pop on over to my gallery :)

So I did two pages today...took me a couple of hours, but I'm very happy with the way they both turned out. Both were lifts from some new mags I just got last weekend: the new Scrapbooks Ect and the new CK. I had given up on CK, but I found quite a few pages in there that inspired me. This puts my LO count at 91 for the year.

I'm still working out. AND I lost TWO more pounds...YAY me!! That makes a total of 12 lbs in about six weeks time. I think that's pretty good! I'm dieting too....cutting out breads, rice, pasta...all the good stuff, but it's so motivating to see the pounds coming off and the inches...I am losing me some inches!! I even went with my friend Laura to a work out class at her church on Monday and I have to say, I didn't know that I was going to get a good workout that day since the class was only 30 minutes long and I usually spend about 2 hours at the gym, but let me tell kicked my BUTT!! I think it was because it was alot of jumping....and running in place...alot of impact on my ankle and that was not good! I hit the gym yesterday too and I did AWESOME....really pushed myself and I managed to do 2 miles in 25 mins on the Elliptical. And I did 2 miles on the treadmill in 35 mins, but I am feeling it and paying for it now. I am SO sore and my ankle is hurting me badly! I iced it on Monday and last night and I think I need to again. I "was" going to the gym today, but decided not to. I think I need to let my legs rest and recuperate.

Oh and speaking of my friend Laura...I've known her since Elementary school...1st grade I think and we just found each other on Facebook a while back...well, we've reconnected with alot of our old classmates. But my sis and I got together for lunch with her and another friend we've known since grade school last week and it was a blast! We spent six hours there at Sea Island just chatting and LAUGHING...boy, did we laugh! We talked about so many of them being religion and after saying that I'd kind of lost interest at the church we've been attending (Miguel and I), my friend Laura invited me to her church. So I went with her to a service on Sunday and all I have to say is "WOW!" I can't even describe how moved I was and how much I felt that this was "home". I felt like that was what I had been searching for all this time. And while I liked going to Catholic mass with Miguel and the kids and I loved listening to Father Michael give the sermon, I think my experiences there had become stagnant. I was not getting anything out of it or feeling moved or movitated..nothing. My friend and I even decided to join one of the Women's retreats that her chuch is having!! I know! I'm excited about it! And we get to bunk in the same cabin! This isn't until September, but I'm looking forward to it! So, we have become church buddies and as long as she will have will be going to church together :)

What else?? I think that's pretty much it for now...I think I'm going to try to scrap some more since I have nothing else to chores, no cleaning...nothing. The kids are here playing Xbox so I can watch them and scrap at the same time! More later :)
