Happy Groundhogs Day!

I love Groundhog's Day. Maybe it's just a PA thing, but ever since I was little, I couldn't wait to see Punxsutawney Phil on tv. Regardless of what he predicts, it's just a fun day to have in the midst of winter. My brother in law is a PA State Trooper and gets to work security for Phil each year. I am so jealous of him! One year I am going to head on up to see the furry guy.

I still haven't posted my goals for this year, but one of them includes working out. Last night when I got home from work I did a quick workout from the on demand channel. I have lost almost 15 lbs from my mother's passing and although it was not how I wanted to lose weight, since it is off I want to keep it off. I have put a couple pounds back on this past week or two now that I feel like eating but for the most part I am trying to stay where I am. I figure that if I start working out now and keep watching my portions and food choices then I should be able to maintain this weight. I also started taking vitamins and fish oil supplements.

Another goal of mine is to work harder at keeping the house clean and laundry on track. Too bad my family sabotaged that plan last night. Before I went to bed last night, I had put a load of laundry in the wash and did all the dishes. I crawled in bed at 9pm while my family was watching Monday Night Wrestling. This morning when I went downstairs, my kitchen was a disaster. I thought I was going to go through the roof. I texted my husband but he hasn't responded. There were dishes all in the sink and he must have made pizza as the pans were out on the stove. Arrg! I expect to come home from work with some dishes from breakfast and after school snacks, but an entire sink fullbefore breakfast!! Thinking of not coming home from work today- haha! Not sure how long I could be on the run before they'd find me!!

I don't even think my husband has noticed that I have been keeping the house pretty spotless these past few days. I know he isn't aware of the clothes. Unless he goes down to the basement, he wouldn't see that clotheslines are free of hanging clothes and the baskets are pretty empty. Though he will hear more about the kitchen tonight!

how are you feeling after the loss of your mom? hope you are doing better, but I guess after a loss like that better is a relative term. I can't imagine how tough that is.
