I felt like I would be a good day to post a blog. :-)
This week was CRAZINESS at the West household. Melisma was here until Thursday. We had a great time with her and were very sad to see her go.
Monday I hosted BUNCO for the gosh-darndess best BUNCO group in the world! Even with my tiny little house, we had fun squeezing around. I made my favorite Chili & Cornbread with Peach Cobbler for dessert! Yummy.
I was summoned for Jury Duty for Tuesday - Thursday. I appeared on Tuesday and was basically sent right home. I was bummed! I watch those court TV shows and was REALLY hoping I would get to find someone guilty...he he he he. I checked back on Wednesday, and still wasn't call, but Thursday I was. I was so excited!! I went in and they randomnly selected 18 out of about 30 to be interviewed for the Jury, I was not in the 18. So again I went home.
Today, Friday, I went for my 2 week check up at Rogue EMC Body Analysis. I started the first week of October on a Whole Body Cleanse. This consisted of taking certain supplements and eating only things that walked on the earth of grew on the earth. This eliminated anything with preservative/additives. I did pretty well at it. I stopped drinking coffee and soda completely. When I went back on October 26th and weighed in 14 lbs. lighter! I was amazed but excited.
I then started the official Body Analysis diet. The first 2 weeks are a cleansing plan as well. I am only allowed certain fruits, vegetables and certain lean meats. After those 2 weeks, I lost another 6 lbs! I cannot even begin to express how exciting this is to me! It makes me feel so good, not just because I am losing weight, but because the food I am eating has a postive effect on my body.
So that is all I can think to say today. It isn't adoption related, but I don't want to let life pass by while we are waiting for our referral. Life starts new everyday, not just when something spectacular happens.
Summer at Grandpa's!
