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 sparkpeople.com. 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.
