Stitching but no progress pics yet

Long time, no post eh?! It's been a busy week with all the kids home from school. We've been playing outside in the kiddy pools at least once a day and trying to take a nice walk in the mornings. As long as we can get outside before 9:00 a.m. the walk is great but anytime after that and it's a sweat suck-the-life-out-of-you walk. Today we're skipping the walk as they all woke up too late for it. It's back to the horsey rides through the house with Mommy being the horsey. At least I get my exercise that way right?!?!

I have been stitching but no progress pics to show. I finished my second Peace, Love and a Cure to send to Donna and I have one more ornament to finish stitching before I can send her package out. I did try my hand at finishing but I made a mess out of two cute smalls so I have to give up (for now only) and send all that I have to Donna to finish for me. She's such a great lady, she agreed to finish all that I have stitched for her Stitching for a Cure tree.

I've been meaning to get on here with a post but with all the kids home and Logan's habit of turning the computer off, my time on the thing has been drastically reduced. I'm hoping to get into a nice schedule of fun, school work (summer we like to keep everyone up-to-date and have them practice what they learned this school year) and down time soon. Logan's summer school will be starting in about two weeks so a different schedule will begin soon. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the later waking up time when I can get it, especially as I'm having to stay up later with Ryan. Oh and I've given up coffee so it does make for a harder wake up time in the morning. On top of everything else, I've finally pulled my head out and started exercising and eating better so I can lose some weight. I hope to be down to a tollerable dress size by the time the kids start school in late August. Wish me luck!

Thanks for posting. Now I don't feel like I am the only mommy that gives horse rides from time to time. I think it is awesome that you gave up coffee and have started exercising. I am going to start exercising on Monday, but I still have not figured out how to give up coffee without having headaches. Guess that will come with time. Take care
