Conversation #73: It's already April?

That is seriously how I feel.  Where did March go?  Oh, I remember.  It started out with the plumbing leak from you know where, then a weekend full of getting the yard in shape (which it needs again, by the way) and then two busy but very fun weekends of entertaining.  Oh, and it didn't stop there.  I went to our church's women's retreat this last weekend, but I think I might be able to finally sleep in this weekend.  Unless I decided to brave a local church's garage sale (I found a couple of fun items last time).  Really, I'm on the hunt for an old dresser that I can fix up and put in our guest room to replace some older furniture.  I'm not sure if I feel up to that project right now to tell you the truth. 

Okay, so what all has happened in the last few weeks?  Well, my adorable nephew turned two!  I'll have to find some pictures.  He is such a little boy these days and it makes me sad to be missing him growing up.  Then we got to spend time with some friends that were in town.  We had a busy house, but it was nice to have it full of people we love. 

Then there was the church retreat.  It was awesome.  I feel like God has really been working in me and if I can just get out of my own way, I feel like I'm on the edge really getting to know Him.  That may sound weird, but I have thought about it a lot lately.  I want to share about it, but I feel like I don't even know where to start.  Hopefully soon the words will come to me.  God is good - I do know that!

I also started Weight Watchers Online through my job.  Our wellness coordinator got us a discount so I figured why not.  Do I NEED to lose weight?  No.  I'm in the acceptable range for my body, but I don't feel good.  I also know I don't eat healthy and well-balanced meals so it has been really good for me.  I have only been doing it for about a week and a half, but I feel like I have already learned so much.  I also lost 2 pounds so that isn't too shabby either.  I don't want to be skinny fat because that is just as unhealthy as being overweight.  My family has a lot of heart disease in it so I figure it is best to start now, especially since my cholesterol is already a little higher than desirable for my age.  I feel empowered and I like it.

Today, though, I'm battling allergies.  I think the wind and being outside all weekend sent me over the edge.  It is always a cycle with me when allergies get me.  It is so weird.  It starts out as a sore throat for a couple of days, then it moves into congestion and coughing and sneezing and sleepy eyes.  Finally, when the allergens subside a bit and my body gets back on top of things, I feel better. 

So this was a boring post, but hopefully April will afford me more time than March to share on here.  I also want to share some pictures with you over the last few weeks.  I haven't bought too many new things lately, but I have enjoyed a few new items that I scored online for pretty good deals.  There is also a local seasonal consignment sale coming up that I can't wait for.  I sold items in it last year, but I decided to sit this one out.  I have a lot of items to give away, and I decided I didn't have the energy or time to get it together this go round.  Maybe next time, but I'll share if I find anything good!  Let me know how your spring has started off, too!
