After what seems like for-ev-er, I am on vacation. Unfortunately, we didn't go anywhere, but just being able to sleep in, lounge around in my sweats, hang out on the boat and do basically whatever I please is nice for once. I've taken a few days off here and there over the past year, but I was in such a fog at the time it didn't do any good. I'm hoping for some serious R&R this week. So far, it's gotten off to a good start. I do have a doctor's appointment out of town tomorrow (ugh), but I can handle one day of being poked and prodded.
I have some things around the house I want to get to this week, but I'm not going to bust my butt doing it. I'm also getting my butt back on the treadmill. My Nike Connect is charging as we speak. My sister is getting married in two months and I have to stand up next to a bunch of gorgeous superstars. Me and my stretch marks (yes, I know that's grammatically incorrect) will be out in all their glory, so the least I can do is lose a few pounds and try to tone up some. LOL All of my sister's friends are gorgeous. We always called them the movie stars...and there I'll be, right next to them in this wedding. Thank God for spray tans. That will help a little. :)
No news on the adoption front. :( We still want to sign with an additional agency, and we still may at some point, but we want to try to save as much as possible before we do. I still have to finish cleaning out closets and rearrange some things around the house, so there's still plenty to do on my end to get ready.
Other than that, nothing is going on and I have to say, I love it. No news is good news around here. Things are drama free. We've been getting out and enjoying ourselves. There's been neighborhood cookouts, fireworks at the lake and last night we hopped in our old VW bug convertible and took a drive. We stopped at Sonic for dinner. Stuffed our faces with a big Chicago style hot dog (how much more American can you get on July 4th?) and headed home to watch the fireworks.
Well, it's time for me to get back to vacationing. I'm going to fix myself a big bowl of watermelon and sit back and catch up on my DVR. Hope all of you have a great week. :)
