Forcing myself to post

It is 10pm - way past my bedtime. But I realized I haven't posted in awhile. 

The hubby & I have been busy getting ready for our trip. It is only 3 days away. 

I was a super packer and got all of our clothing along with our shoes into one carry on suitcase. Did you hear that? ONE carry on. Yup, all our clothing and shoes. 

I was so proud of myself.

And then I found out that we could take a full suitcase for free. LOL. I had called American Airlines to find out if I could take a razor along in the nicely packed carry-on and they said that we each get a free checked bag. 

So we are checking the carry-on and another bag which is now packed with floats, food and a few other non-necessary things that I couldn't fit into the carry-on.

Yesterday I spent a few hours helping the hubby with some major yard work at his father's house. The county puts gravel down on the road to help with the snow. It adds traction (or something like that - I am clearly not a road specialist). We swept it up and loaded into our trailer. Then I came home and collapsed. I am not cut out for physical labor. 

I spent the rest of the day making cookies and cupcakes which I took to an outreach project tonight. Our church is super involved in the community. We have a church of about 150 and I literally cannot keep up with the amount of outreach we do. It is amazing.

The cookies and cupcakes were almost entirely eaten by a swarm of pre-teens and teens. It was fun to watch them eat...and eat...and eat. Seriously, some of the boys ate 4 sloppy Joe sandwiches and multiple cupcakes. 

I had some will power and had an orange wedge. I am just days away from putting on a swimsuit afterall. 

This past week I have also caught up in my New Year's resolution. I tried zucchini, parsnip and Brussels sprouts. Parsnip tasted like carrots which wasn't terrible. I will never have another Brussel sprout. Ever. And zucchini was gross - even fried in olive oil. Weeks 11, 12 & 13 are done! I plan on picking up two more veggies/fruits after church on Sunday.
