Trying to Keep Up

I have been feeling so overwhelmed lately. I think it is because I have a 15 year old daughter who is giving me some problems right now but I really don't want to go into it because I want to feel happy thoughts.

I weighed in and lost another 1.6 lbs for a total of 34.2 I can't believe I lost that because after celebrating my birthday last weekend on Monday I got on the scale and it showed that I was up 3 lbs. I did work my butt off by walking an hour a day and getting on my exercise bike. My hubby asked me if I was going walking today and I said no that I am taking a day off because I was baking for our Mother's Day party tomorrow at my sister in law's house. I am making the pork tomorrow morning but this time instead of barbecue sauce I am making a pork gravy. I think we are all tired of the barbecue since we have it at every party. We are also celebrating my daughter turning 16. Her birthday is not until June 1st. but since we are all going to be together I decide to celebrate. When are kids were getting older we decided not to throw family parties because it just gets too expensive but since she is going to be sweet (yeah right) sixteen I decided to do it.

I had a really great time at my party. I will post pictures sometime this week. I forgot how expensive developing pictures can be. I took my sister in laws disposable cameras and had them developed because I wanted to see the pictures right away. I just ordered the cd's for myself and 2 sets for her. It came out to $78.00 I almost fell over. Thank goodness I only have to pay $15.00 for the cd's.

Well, I need to finish scanning a cookbook and then I am probably going to bed early since I haven't been sleeping well and tomorrow is going to be a very long day.

Happy Mother's Day
