Still Busy...

We've been spending all of our weekends working on the house that we're getting ready to rent, along with some week nights after work.  We've gotten a lot accomplished and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  My mom and sister are coming over this wknd to help us wrap some stuff up...a little more painting and staining the deck outside, etc.  We're officially moving our furniture in the following Friday, June 24th.  I took a vacation day tomorrow to go over and paint the bathroom and pressure wash the deck.  The livingroom and spare room have already been painted.  My weight is the same....260 lbs...nothing has changed there.  Just updating because it's been a while.  Oh, and this Thursday, June 16th, is my 1 year anniversary here at this company.  Hard to believe it's been a year since I was lifted up out of the hell that is unemployment...and I haven't forgotten.  I'm very thankful for this job.  :)

"Half"-way Committed

First and foremost, Blogger hates me.  I've been trying to do a post for over a week now and was locked out of my own blog!!!!  Grrrrr.....

Secondly....I paid my $85 today and signed up to walk the Half Marathon in Savannah, Ga. this November!!!!  I am totally locked in, and my friends Tina and Kim are registered, too.  There's no backing out now!!! 

Dwayne and I have been working on the rental house for the last 2 weeks that we're moving into the 24th of this month.  We already rented a U-Haul and moved all of the boxes and small stuff out of my apt this past Sat.  We're painting rooms, pressure-washing and staining the deck, and moving all of Dwayne's stuff over the next 2 weekends, and then the movers are coming on the 24th to get the furniture out of my apt and over to the house.  We've gone over a few nights during the work week too trying to get stuff done.  Last night we went over and finished up cleaning out and planting a couple of flower beds in the front yard.  That's hard work!!!  Good ol' Georgia clay for dirt is a real workout.  My hamstrings are tight and painful and I've been hobbling around the ofc today like a 90 year old woman...pathetic, lol. 

I will be purchasing a treadmill before the end of the month to put in the basement of the new house.  I've been pricing them on Craig's List, and they are not cheap.  My budget is extremely limited, especially with the stuff we've been doing to the house, so finding one I can afford has been quite the challenge...but I'll get one soon.

The scale said 261 this morning....up 2 lbs. since my last post.  Any surprise there?  No...I didn't think so.  Have a great day friends....more updates on the house as I go along...if Blogger will let me update!!  :)
