Slacker be thy name

Where have I been?  Right here, doing not much of anything it seems.  I have been remiss in taking pictures and feel like nothing note worthy has been going on in my life.

With that said it's been a stressed out week.  My sister went to the ER on Friday night and was admitted with pneumonia.  She is still there and will be for another 3 days the Dr said.  They have no idea why she has such a severe case as she's healthy and not a smoker.  Her o2 level was 50 when she got there and is still low, 92 with oxygen.  Hopefully they will figure out what to do and she will be home soon.

I am still 5 pounds away from goal and still driving me crazy.  I'm beginning to doubt that I will ever get there.  Most say it's not a big deal, that I don't need to lose any more weight, but I feel that I need to reach it in order to feel accomplished. Crazy I know.  It's weird how our minds work.  We know logically it's not a big deal, but emotionally it's the frickin Grand Canyon.

I've taken up Hoola Hooping for exercise.  I couldn't believe how many muscles it uses and exactly how sore I would be from it.  I've ordered a DVD that should be here this week so I plan to get my "hoop" on.  Exercise should be fun after all if you want to continue to do it.

We took new family pics a couple of weeks ago, much needed as we didn't have one with our youngest in it....
