Time for An Update!

CrownGood evening!

I realize I am severely overdue on a post, and thought I should just stop procrastinating and get on that this evening!!

I would love to tell you that I have been uber-productive, and that I have tons of great news, but really?? my life is automatic-mode at the moment. I am busy, really busy. Almost to the point of asking myself, “why the heck am I keeping myself so busy for?” None of it is terribly important, but maybe it has become my habit??

My sweetie and are still working on getting out of non-mortgage debt. We have 4 of 6 credit cards gone, and our car to finish paying off. We have been working like crazy people to make that happen, and thankfully that should be accomplished by next August!!


On my weight loss journey…I have lost 85 pounds so far, which I know is a WHOLE HECK OF A LOT, but my weight loss is really just going so slowly, and the fact that I have been plateaued for a few weeks is really getting discouraging!! On a positive note, I am getting ready to go back in to make sure my thyroid medicine is at the right dosage, but we are thinking maybe not so much, so hopefully we can get that resolved soon, and my weight can start coming off again! I know I only have a 12 to 18 month magic window where my body is supposed to reset itself, so I am ready to get that moving again soon!! 😉

Married life is AWESOME!! Jason and I are doing FAMOUSLY!!! I honestly have to admit that we are back in the honeymoon phase and we just could not be happier with each other, so that is FREAKIN’-FABULOUS!!!

Oh, I have a confession to make – I have become a HuluPlus junkie!! Jason and I don’t normally watch too much television, but for some reason, as the weather has been getting colder, and the days shorter, I find that I have been gluing my heinie to the tele for hours on end!! It is awesome to be able to catch up on some of our favorite shows, as well as find waaaaaay too many new ones to fall in to!! I seriously need to do something about this!! I know that my body would benefit so much more if I spent the time exercising, or dancing, or playing, or really just about anything, but there you go!! 😉

What else?? Well, we are all decorated for Christmas, and have bought all of the presents we are going to buy this year, so that feels good to be done with all of that!! This year, as most every year, we are going down to my family’s place in Roseburg.  I will try and make it a point to post some of our Christmas pics later this weekend!

OH, another new obsession…CROCHETING!!! My girlfriend, Chris and I have been crocheting like fiends every day at lunch! It is quite addicting!!! I have already gotten a baby blanket made, and am just now starting another throw blanket! We are actively working on recruiting some fellow crocheters to join us once a month for a stitch-and-bitch club, which I think would be a HOOT!!! Any volunteers??? 😉

Alright, I think that is about it for this evening’s rambling session!! I am planning on getting some crocheting done, while watching some tele – I know, I did just say that I have to break the cycle, but really? I just am not feeling in the mood to change my bad habits this evening!! 😉

Here is to a FABULOUS evening!! 😉
