Outside changes- insides the same...

It's been a while since I touched base with my thoughts, emotions and fuzzy warm stuff. It's crazy that I'm down almost 100 lbs. I feel fantastic and I've rediscovered my body again. I'm so close too Onederland (199) I can taste it. I want these last 6 lbs gone NOW! but my body is not having it.

Jeremy is loving the new me. I'm moving more than ever, riding bikes and what not. I can almost keep up with him. This last winter we snow shoed and hiked a bit. This spring we enjoyed the Trail of the Hiawatha with our friends. I can't believe I survived 3 hrs on my bike. It was nice that most of the ride was down hill. I loved that part!

The garden is coming along but I don't have as much time to work it as I would like. I'm working a part time job on T/W/TH evenings down at Wild At Art and it's taking up a lot of my spare time I would normally donate to my flowers and veggies. It shouldn't really be a problem if I think about it. They are all in the ground, they just have to grow so we can harvest and rejoice in the Summer of Salsa! I'm going to teach Kelly D to can the veggies. She's got a dehydrator to so we will see what we can come up with. It should be fun.

We are starting to make plans and clean/downsize the house in preparation of a move back to Portland. I'm so excited to move back to civilization. Thank goodness I have my job that has allowed this move and the move back. it's also allowed J to continue with his schooling and THANK GOODNESS that is almost over. I'm anxious for him to start working and contributing to the household budget. It's been too long that we've been surviving on one income and the occasional part time work. It's a shame the plasma donation place went under. That was great easy money while it lasted.

We are seriously contemplating trying to get into Linda's house. I'm anxious to build a home with J at this point. We are trying to have a baby and this is a really exciting time for both of us. It feels like we have so much on our plate. Work, Move, Baby, House, more work, WLS, finances... can you say STRESS? both good and bad. My head is spinning just thinking about it. I am thankful Jeremy and I have each other to lean on.


  1. Oh man, it's been so dark and rainy here this spring, we're hoping we even get anything from our tomatoes and peppers. They've been drowned in sorrow until this week basically. We shall see.

    Congrats on coming down 100lbs! That's amazing and wonderful, and I'm glad that you're finding freedom to do things you couldn't before, that's got to be a great feeling!

    Coming back to Portland! Any general idea when yet? If you want us to help scope out places or anything, just let us know, ok?

    Hope it all works out well for you!

  2. Hey it's the Larsen's! I found your blog through the Lloyd's - I hope that's okay :)
