Laboring on Labor Day

Hello Everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? It was not bad here - I got all the furniture moved on Friday with the help of my friend. We unloaded the truck on Saturday morning with help from a couple of friends - so my garage is packed to the gills with furniture. I worked today on unpacking the boxes - putting things away and moving some furniture around. I moved in the kitchen (photo's later) a "sideboard" that has some excellent storage - it replaced a smaller cabinet that I moved downstairs for the stereo that came home from Clare - now the kids can have music (can you call what teenager's listen to music?) downstairs - thus saving my sanity. Smart mom, huh? I moved my bedroom around - but I am waiting to finish up until Kyle gets his dressers out of here. Then I will move in a couple more pieces from the garage.

I have been trying to diet - emphasis on trying - but it is not easy working 2 jobs and dieting! I am figuring that I have done some good exercise this weekend moving all that stuff around! That is a bonus - I am in the and I am not happy to admit that I have only lost 1 lb. since signing up. I am hoping that stress keeps me from loosing weight - sounds good, doesn't it? :-)

I did get some knitting done last night and this afternoon - I worked on my socks from Knit Cafe - I am close to (within 10 rows) to my toe decreases! Woo Hoo - and just in time - the weather has been decidedly nippy at night - sock weather is knocking on the door. Photo's of these great socks are coming - stay posted.

Have a great evening everyone - school and work tomorrow.

Losing 1 pound is better than gaining 1! :-) I'm impressed that you've lost with all you've been going through. You're doing a great job and you should be very proud of yourself!

I can't wait to see the socks!!!

I've just been catching up on my blog reading. I hope you are doing ok with everything you have been going through. And congratulations on the 1 pound - we all have to start somewhere.
