I got on the scale this afternoon.
BIG mistake.
Why does weight go on so easily and come off so hard?
I blame the heat and water retention.
And maybe the lack of exercise.
Well, okay, probably somewhat the food too, but I haven't even been that bad, really.
It's a frustrating battle.
Maybe it's just the day.
Enough on that.

It is finally hot, gloriously hot, here. I love it. I am actually capable of getting a tan now. Sierra can play in her pool and yard work can get done. Please stay for awhile now summer.

Trevor and I are totally into the TV show Smallville. A co-worker of his owns most of the series on DVD and we've been borrowing them. As good as the show is, it probably wouldn't matter because the characters so easy on the eyes, for both of us. We start season three tonight.

I hate weeds with an absolute passion. In fact, I don't think I hate anything more. They have tried taking over our yard so I've waged a war. I'm slowly winning. Winning is only ever temporary. Sadly, the weeds keep coming back no matter how viciously I attack them. The joys of a new yard with a rather copious amount of dirt patches!

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Well dearie -- waging a war with weeds is a fight I have each and every year. And, I hate to tell you....I lose every time. I think the heat and humidity make the darn things grow even faster. Somehow, I keep trudging out to dig up more each week, but I think I'm going to give up pretty soon.

And please don't be so hard on yourself with the dieting. It's hard to keep up with exercising and life -- something's got to give.

It seems hard for me to talk about anything but "random" these days. It seems hard to keep your mind or attention on anything for more the 67 seconds because your children are always battling for it! Good luck with your weight! I know EXACTLY how you feel!
