I'm here, just busy

Hey guys, I'm around just swamped. Haven't had time to be a good blogging buddy lately. I peaked into some of your blogs yesterday but didn't take time to comment.

Good news is Sophie is well and is finishing 1st grade this week, and she brought home her first 100% "A+" on her spelling test yesterday. I think the ADHD meds are actually making a difference for her. Her reading skills are improving noticeably, too.

Everyone else is healthy, which is a blessing. I'm still battling a cough, which I had all last week, and as I look back I'm sort of amazed that I made myself run through feeling sort of crappy. It was one of those, "I'm not really sick but I have this nagging cough/congestion thing that makes my face hurt" deals. Just goes to show when I have my mind set, I can do just about anything.

Same goal for this week--20 miles. Yesterday I only got in 2.33 miles. I'm hoping it will be like the football team who goes for the two-point conversion--it will make the winning difference by the end of the game. We are having great weather this week, and I should get a solid run in this afternoon. The next couple days are going to be sunny, but getting hotter.

My weight is holding steady. Clothes are fitting well. I'm not losing, but I'm still feeling content with myself. It's nice. I got a great bathing suit top for our trip to St John & and am waiting for a pair of boardshorts to arrive to go with it. The shorts will provide much better coverage for my behind. We are going to spend half our days in our suits--I want to be comfortable. We are a mere 3 1/2 weeks away from vacation.

I'll write more meaningful blather later this week. Hope you are all enjoying your early summer days.

Congratulations to Sophie on her 100% grade in spelling. Yoo Hoo!!!

And so glad you all are well.

Beautiful picture of you and the family!

I hear you on being swamped and I don't work outside the home (hats off to you). . . we have 15 afterschool activities going on this week!

Hi Laura, I loved your family pic, especially the little guy--he looks so cute!! Its good to hear you are feeling so well.

I was interested in you mentioning 'boardshorts.' I've been looking for 'swim shorts' and didn't know there was a whole world of boardshorts out there. I'm not so worried about covering my butt--its my legsI want to cover!

I can't wait for you to go on vacation so I can hear all about it! ;-)

I sympathize with being way too busy...hope you (and I) get some rest this weekend.
