Is it friday all ready??? lol. I know I have said it before...but man does time fly! I cannot believe it.

The last couple days ahve been spent just playing with the boys. Nothing really exciting to report at all. They have been pretty good, no terrible tantrums or fights (knock on wood).

Brandon has been hanging out with our friend from Minnesota. He was here for a couple days between business trips. They have almost closed the house here...and are renting to the family until it does. It feels so strange seeing another family in the house. It will always be the Strand home. I at least wish the family with the two boys took it...but they have older girls. sigh.

Have been doing REALLY horrible on the dieting front. I mean bad. I used to be soooo good. I just need to get the mindset going. It is so strange to me. I HATE being so big. I hate the way it looks and feels. But just cannot get motivated to do anything about it. The logical side of me really finds this fascinating. I am a total emotional eater so I know I have a lot of issues to break through.

Really looking forward to Easter. Brandon's family has a big shindig at his uncles. They have a huge property with creeks, cows, chickens etc. We have egg hunts, egg tosses, lots of food etc. The only time we all get together anymore.

What do you all do?

I guess that is all today...didn't sleep well again the last two nights...so got some layouts done and another freebie.

have a great day!

Good Morning! I so understand the diet fight. Seems to be an ongoing thing. For me I do better when I have a 'plan' sort of a layout of what I should be eating. I know what is healthy and all but if I have a more solid 'thing' to follow I am better, not great but better :) I am picking up a copy of 'flip the switch' this weekend sounded like it was right up my alley! Have a Happy Easter.

This will be our 1st Easter with a grandbaby so ya know it will be fun!

okay, i know i am pregnant and have an "excuse" but i have gained over 60 lbs this pregnancy, 10lbs in the last week... and it isn't water weight. i haven't been able to exercise at all this pregnancy (due to complications) and when i don't exercise i eat more junk. i have never been a big exercise person, but i could at least spend a few minutes a day on my elliptical or take a fast-paced walk. that always helped me. not looking forward to trying to lose this weight, either, especially in the summer in florida!

good luck!

Thank you so much for sharing the adorable denim boy corner. It is so cute! I love stars! It is appreciated! I am right with you on needing to get on a diet but just hard to get it motivated! Hope you have a great Easter. It is also a time for my family get-together which I enjoy very much. BettyJoR
