Wow!!

It feels like it's been forever since I've been here!! I think my blog space needs remodeling, but I have no idea how to do that, so if anyone would like to help, let me know!

We have had a whirlwind few weeks, planning this, planning that, the girl graduated from high school this past week, the boy graduated from middle school, we've had friends galore showing up on our doorstep, drunk from celebration, or mourning the graduates (I haven't been drinking because it isn't compatible with trying to lose stomach flab), we've taken them boating, taken them to our neighborhood club, taken them to the different harbor area restaurants, entertained them here... OH, and I'm still working out with my trainer! My butt is tired... literally. It hurts today. The exercises he made me do yesterday actually worked my glutes! I mean, I do a lot of exercises meant to work those areas, but I've never felt it like this. This is exciting.

The teens... It doesn't feel right calling them the children.


This was after a long day on the boat!! I was tired... I know, I'm getting old.

So, I've got all of this excitement going on, but then... I go try things on (In this particular instance, exercise swim suits for water aerobics). I want to know when I'll be able to walk into a dressing room, try something on, and NOT feel big, and NOT feel gross because my legs are ugly. I hate this. I know what makes people want to starve themselves, or eat, then puke it. Luckily, I hate puking. I also know that puking won't exactly help the leg situation. It could possibly help create a flatter stomach though. Eh, it's gross... I won't do it.

These past few weeks, I've been drinking an energy-metabolism boost drink. It's called Slimquick, NOT to be confused with Slim Fast. I haven't taken it this week, but wow... I got so much done while drinking that stuff!! I'll probably start drinking it again tomorrow, because I've noticed a difference this week. The difference being, I'm not getting anything done. I couldn't even sit long enough to blog when I was drinking that stuff.

Then I've got the whole TMJ thing. Oh my God!! Okay, so my teeth are shifting, and it's making me nuts. I was going to get invisalign, but now I'm leaning more toward veneers. If you can get a lifetime guarantee, then that's the painless way to go. I'm all for pain-free, and if it cost the same as braces, then why not? Seriously...

So, I lose my stomach flab, tone the legs, tan the legs, get my veneers, I'm taking vitamins for my hair trying to thicken it... I wonder if getting all of this accomplished will make me see something better when I look in the mirror.

Here's hoping that all the work will be worth it.

I'm going to go look for this slimquick drink! Sounds exactly what I need to get stuff done around my house. I had braces when I was younger and now I think my teeth are slowly shifting too... it sucks. You look great! And love the picture of your kids!

Your children are adorable, and so are you. :)

Fix what you can - don't worry about the rest, because this can (and will) go on for the rest of you life.

I meant, "our lives." :)

I had the Invisalign; and I'd better wear my retainer more often or it will turn out to be a total waste! :)
