I’m not going to post a photo of my scale but I can tell you right now that it appears to be stuck. It is stuck at a weight 15 pounds heavier than I’d like and the truth is, this doesn’t surprise me.
The truth is, my life is heavier than I’d like and if I don’t clear it out, I don’t think I’ll lose weight.
More on that later.
In other news, Francis has cut his first little tooth and 15-year-old Joe is learning to drive. Do you have any idea how scary this is? Not the tooth-cutting part—I’ve survived that one many times over—but rather, my child! My baby! Being in charge of a car at high speeds on the freeway!
Any advice and all prayers are welcome.
As far as the cluttered-up home/head/heart are concerned…I’ve got a game plan. I requested some Peter Walsh books from the library and am gutting my daughters’ room, as per this blog post. I am showing NO MERCY and know—believe, even—that they will thank me later. We are painting the walls—no more Pepto Bismol pink!—and hanging curtains from fabric the girls are picking out at Jo-Anns.
Would you like to see photos of the process? Or are you allergic to chaos and mess?
Finally, and most important of all, I am trying hard to declutter my heart. To that end, I am reading a wonderful book. A reader (Hi Natalie!) sent me Consoling the Heart of Jesus by Father Michael Gaitley and I highly HIGHLY recommend it.
(I’m starting his 33 Days to Morning Glory on Saturday.)
And that’s enough of a weigh-in for now! If you’d like to weigh in with what you’re doing—your goals, your successes, your failures, your life—I would, as always, love to hear it.
