Long Time Update

Long time no post.
I haven't crafted anything to completion and therefore have no crafty goodness to post.

Let's see:
The dryer ended up needing two new parts. Found out the second part was needed once the first part was installed. After the first part it was moving and tumbling but had no heat. After the heating part was replaced everything was fine. Total cost, just under $100.00. Much better than the cost of a whole new dryer.

Vacation to Wally World (Disney World) was a vacation of a lifetime. I worked out 7 of the 8 days that I was there. Was treated by my family (this was my graduation gift) like a Queen, or maybe considering the place I should say PRINCECESS!!!!
Ate the best food, had good times, lots of laughs, came back tan and rested. Great, great, great time!

Crocheted a 1lb. skein of yarn while on vacation but it didn't complete the project. Brought some stamped images that I colored maybe 1/3 of the ones that I brought. I guess I was spending too much time at the pool and parks to "complete my homework". Read a bit of a book, and didn't work on my resume at all which is probably the thing that I should have done first.

Had a lovely Mother's Day brunch with my Mom, two sisters, two cousins, niece, second cousins and brother-in-law.

I have set a goal for my 50th birthday (1/9/10) to be 50lbs thinner/lighter. Because I just don't have the same energy after working all day I have decided that I could not keep up the every day at the gym that I did on vacation. Instead I am and have so far made it to the gym 3 days a week. So far I have released (not lost because I DON'T want to "find" these lbs again) 5 pounds. I wish to be fit and fantabulous at 50.

So, in a nutshell that is what has been going on with me. I hope to do some crafting this holiday weekend as well as play in the dirt of my garden. Some of my flowers are blooming and I will post pictures.

WOW! Sounds like an amazing time at Disney! Did you take loads of photos?
I am so proud of you-going to the gym everyday at Disney, and 3 times a week at home. You will most definitely be Fabulous at 50!

Wow you have been busy. You don't look anywhere close to being 50!!

I love Disneyland. It is one of my favorite places. The Peter Pan ride and the Pirates of the Caribbean are my favorite. What are yours?
