Online Presence. I’ve found since moving into my new residence that my online presence has been lacking. I’m certainly getting on the computer daily, but not nearly as often as I would have been in prior days, weeks or even months. I used to spend on average 5 hours a day on the computer. These days I maybe spend an hour a day, maybe 2. I’m just not compelled to pick up the computer as often. Seriously, I don’t mind and I think my family loves it! My BlackBerry still follows me everywhere though! Can’t part with all gadgets. Never.
Bridesmaid Dress. Yesterday I drove out to Vaughn to pick up my bridesmaid dress for my best friend’s upcoming Fall wedding. You think I would have been excited to try on the dress. I’ve lost 50 pounds since the dress was ordered last September. As the store clerk brought out the dress for me, I dreaded looking at it. I just didn’t want to be reminded of how “large” I once was. It’s something I don’t like to think about or focus on. It saddens me to think about how poorly I used treat my body and how little I used to take care of myself. It seems silly that I didn’t feel proud gazing at myself in the mirror in this HUGE bridesmaid dress that kept falling off of me. The bridesmaid dress is a stunning claret and black. I’m stoked to set up an appointment with a seamstress and get it altered to fit me perfectly!!! Let’s just hope the alterations don’t cost an arm and a leg.
Home Sweet Home. On August 3rd, we made the move into our new development. Our house was built from the ground up. It’s everything we ever wanted in a house and more. I’ve never once before walked into a home and felt like it was home… I felt that immediately with this house! It’s a wonderful feeling. The first night in our new home didn’t feel weird at all. What felt weird was having to go back to our old house when it was empty and dark to clean. It just felt like cold and was a strong reminder of why we were so excited to move. I’ve never been happier and I look forward to making many memories with my family in our new home.
Clean Floors. I’ve always been one for clean floors. Nothing drives me more batty than seeing dirty shoe scuffs, crumbs and dust tracked all over my floors. If there’s one thing I’m anal about… it’s about having clean floors. Insert our move into a new development. We live in an area surrounded by dirt and mud…. If you can imagine my clean floor obsession before… now multiply that by 1,000,000. Heh.
