what I'm working on right now in my life
- trying to fit back into my jeans (see "what I know for sure" below). Fall, jean season, is approaching.
- being a support to Scott in business school
- making healthy eating choices
- cleaning & organizing lots of things and keeping them clean & organized
- trying to get back into scrapbooking
what I know for sure
- That thing they say about your metabolism slowing down in your 30's? . . . it's true.
- I'm ready for the kids to go back to school.
- Being a fun, happy, sassy, considerate, and nurturing spouse requires time, thought, and effort. Good relationships don't just happen on their own.
- The sun will come up, tomorrow.
