time keeps on tickin tickin tickin into the future

know the song? love it... makes we wanna "fly like an eagle.. to the stars.." or something like that! lol!

I have been away from the computer in a while.../ I have wanted to continue my journal but just haven't had time. My dh thinks I aam getting a new hobby- exercising.. what he doesn't know is that I jused to do it allll the time. When we gont married I joined a gym- he did too but didn't like it near as much as me. I love to lift weights, ride bikes... I want to get back to shape so I can play with my kids, not get winded. go shopping for pants that fit nice and a binkini that shows it allll of by a pool or th ebeach! it has bee so long since I wore a bikini... oh.. what a nice thought!

So as promised to myself I would not expect the unattainable and would ask for help. I have been doing more of that and it has helped. I have been getting up every day and exercicising.. without fail. I hope sI can keep it up. I do like the way I feel afterward and it makes me stnd just a little bit taller! I want to mkae and impression on my kids and I think I am. THat is a good thing !

When I get a chance to upload more Friday pics I will! My boy has learned to sit by himsef - it's a brave new world from the ground to 12 inches up! lol! He is so proud of himself!

back on track

just a moment to write and show my entries.

first, a nod to Rhonna for leading our group- thanks - you are inspirational to us! I did a little doodling just as a tip of the hat to you for your guidance. It kind of feels like highschool thinking, doodling, wondering... goal setting... hoping it will all work out this time.
Since I am an adult.. it is really up to me to make it happen... hope be damned. This is how it will be.. it is up to me...

I am putting up day 1.5 for my "think again" entry which got me to think more about what this is going to be for me.(this is on the right) I also have Day 2 (on the left) done... goes along with Lent for me.. hopefully I will lead the family in this journey of ours during this time of giving. I don't think many people see it as that but it is what it is.. a time of giving.... back to oneself.. back to the Creator... back to God.

I'm about to take the kids for Ash Wednesday... hope that they remember what we have been talking about as a family... what it means to give of yourself for something higher than themselves...
