I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve! I'm so excited about this opportunity! I woke up at 4:00 this morning thinking about the surgery and setting my goals. Then I quickly went into thinking about all of the things I have to finish before Christmas.
My biggest problem (any friend can tell you) is that I take on way too much! My big projects of the week --- hand painting cornhole boards for my hubby and making videos for our extended family that we don't get to see much anymore. Ahhhh - this is on top of all the wrapping that still needs to be done. Thank goodness I'm off for the week!
Next week's project --- New Year's Eve Rockin' for the Cure. I am helping throw this first annual event to raise money for Relay for Life. There are fifteen families that have gone in together to throw the event. We are hoping to get 500 people to attend. So next week - I'll be cooking and stuffing swag bags during the week before the actual day of the event which will probably be a blur of activity.
A little about me - I'm a working mother. I'm a systems analyst. I have two very athletic boys - 10 and 7. They play baseball year round - both Little League and USSSA Travel Baseball, they also play football in the fall and basketball in the winter. So needless to say - I spend a lot of time at practices since they are still too young to leave alone. My husband coaches baseball, so he does take care of a lot of that. I am on the board for Chesterfield Little League too --- I like to volunteer!!! =) My husband and I eloped my senior year at Virginia Tech - that was 14 years ago. He is also struggling with his weight. After my second son was born he lost 100 pounds and got all the way down to 177. He kept it off for years, but over the past couple of years he has put a ton back on. I know he doesn't feel well and I'm hoping that this life change for me will benefit both of us.
Happy Hump Day Everyone!
