Weekly Roundup

I told myself I'd update my list every Monday, but this week has been straight from hell and I'm just now making the time to do it.

As of yesterday, I have lost 13lbs, getting me ever closer to meeting #48. I'm really improving my elliptical skills. My sister and I run in to each other every so often at the gym. She wants me to get back into We'll see.

My weekly letter went out to my grandfather.

I added #98 (I only have 3 blank spots left now) - to buy at least 10 Nancy Drew books for the girls. I was inspired by this last week when I was at the bookstore buying a worthless "learn how to help your kids sleep" book. They had all the Nancy Drew books for $3. Nancy Drew was the first "real" books I ever read. I know I was way to young to be reading books that big, but I have been an avid reader my whole life. My mom said before I ever went to school, I taught myself how to read. She said my Sunday School teacher asked her one day if she knew that I could read. She had no clue. She said not only could I read the Bible, but I understood what I was reading. So when I saw all these Nancy Drew books, I had to grab some. I think I got the first 7. There are probably 50 of them, but even at $3, it adds up quick. I'll probably reread them myself.

And finally... I'm at a loss about what to do about one thing on my list that I'm pretty sure will not happen... #94 - visit A&A in Houma. I won't get into it, but as things stand right now, it will not happen. I don't know if I should replace it or what. Part of me wants to keep it there in hopes that things will change but part of me thinks it is time to let go.


  1. Great for you that you are doing so many things on your list. I have yet to do more then a couple and those just happened, without much conscience effort on my part.

    I don't know that you should replace it on your list, you never know, 2 1/2 years is a long time, there is still a chance, no matter how slim. If you don't get it done then you can just transfer it to your next list or let it go then.

    Big congrats on the 13 pounds!!!

  2. oh wow, Congratulations on the 13 pounds!!! and on your elliptical experience...I love the elliptical !

    Nancy Drew was one of my faves too when I was young!!! The one I remember the most was something about a stagecoach...While I was reading Nancy Drew Dad was trying to convince me to read the Hardy Boys....I was such a tomboy and I guess Dad liked that about me...I think he was afraid I'd go all girlie on him, LOL,
