The Waiting Game

We are moving in about 3 weeks. Three weeks may not sound like a long time but if sure feels like it. It also feels like a short amount of time too. It's tricky you know? I have packed up most of my kitchen, but that's about it. I just never know what to pack up and what we'll need. We're having a garage sale, so there is quite a bit to sort through, throw away, sell or donate. So, the packing may have to wait until the sorting can happen. I'm trying not to let myself get too excited because it seems like forever until I actually get to Waco. I don't have a job yet, but I'm still keeping the faith that God is going to provide me with one. So more waiting. I want time to fly but I feel like I need more time to get everything done. Tick tock.... tick tock... the waiting game. What a fun game to play.

Five words or less...

Last night my small group leader challenged us to say our prayer requests in less than five words. We can all tend to get carried away in the details. So, I decided to write my post in five or less words. Here goes....

It's go time!

Today is the first day to a healthier and fitter me! That's right folks, I am going to loose some weight and learn how to eat healthier in the process. For breakfast today, I had strawberry yogurt with granola. My snack... kashi cookie and banana. Lunch...lettuce wrap with lean chicken, tomato and avocado with a side of baked lays (just a few). Afternoon snack... fresh strawberries and organic applesauce. Dinner a "Lean Cuisine". I will also be hitting the gym after work for a hour long power walk on the treadmill. I have exactly a month in a half until Chris and I go to the beach with my parents. I want to look hot in my bikini and not embarrassed of my jelly belly. I also, just want to maintain a healthier life style. Let's face it. I'm not getting any younger and my metabolism is slowing down.

I'm also in need of some new healthy recipes for dinners. Karen, I know you have some, so help a sister out. Or if anyone knows of some good online recipe sites... I'd happily take that. Chris is being so sweet and trying to eat whatever healthy meals I've been cooking up. But, I could use some new ideas. So, here's to a new and improved me!

I feel blue.

There's no place like home...

Going to San Antonio to visit the parents. I always dread and love visiting "home" . I LOVE San Antonio. I love it. I love the food, the shopping and the familiarity of just going "home". But, as everyone knows the older you get the more complicated your family becomes. I can't quite figure out if I was just blind and oblivious to my crazy family when I was little, or they just hid it better. But make no mistake they are crazy and they can make me crazy.
I think the other part is home hasn't felt like home since Chris and I got married. Chris makes me feel at home. Chris loves me pretty unconditionally and accepts me for all my quirks and zaniness. My mom on the other hand... not as much. If my mom could have it her way I'd have long blond hair and be a successful news anchor. Not a pastors wife. I never really know what to expect when I get home. A happy homecoming or a judgemental walk thru the door. A fun time laughing and visiting with my parents or tear filled three days. Good thing no matter what, I always get to come home to Chris. My real and true home. Where I can have "mocha" hair and not be a size 0. I can just be me.
