Ducks, money, and weight loss (in no particular order)

I apologize for the lack of posts. I really don't know what to write about these days. Same ol' same ol' for now. I'm still on my low-carb diet. I'll know for sure tomorrow but I think I'm down 19-20 pounds. I had about 2.5 weeks where I just couldn't lose any weight. It was like my body was teasing me with "Are you sure you can do this, can you really do it?" Yeah, I was definitely having internal conflict about it, lol. But, I figured, since I paid the money to be in the competition and I couldn't afford the entry fee in the first place, I MUST finish.

Speaking of money. A lot of things have happened at school lately and I've been asked to give money. I honestly feel very badly for the women who have been affected with cancer and the teachers who have surgery and with all my heart I would love to contribute but I just can't. I get so frustrated when people say "I'm gonna go purchase such and such for so and so and you need to give me X amount of money." Really! I get really frustrated with people who have NEVER been in my situation and never will or who have but it's been so long they have forgotten. The money I have right now is for food and car fuel. I feel bad b/c I know that if it were me they would contribute to whatever it was that I needed but right now, I just can't. Last year when we lived with Zach's parents we always had money and I gave above what was asked of me so hopefully no one expects me to be able to continue to do that. Good news... next paycheck will have us ALL caught up and we will be doing MUCH better from here on out.

Now on to the fun stuff. I took Princess Bailey to the park yesterday and we fed the ducks. It was SO funny to watch her. She was kind of scared b/c they literally flocked us after the first slice of bread made its way down the hill!

Thanks, Melody. Harbor is a great kid and we really enjoy spending our time with him. Maybe in another year or so we will consider adding a brother or a sister! Ha! Right now, teaching keeps my plate pretty full. I hope you and your family are well! Take care! Hugs!
