turning into something you are not

I would post a pic of my weigh-in this morning, but my scale showed exactly the same number as last week. No point in repeating. We ate a lot of farm raised produce all weekend. We actually ate really well. I did have Taco Bell for lunch today, but it's one bad meal. I'll get over it.

The yard sale was pretty much a failure. I don't know what happened. Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was the change in the way our street is marked. Last year, I seriously think about 80% of our street sat out stuff. I'd say 20 yards in a tenth of a mile. This year, there was us and one other. So no one stopped. I think we had about 25 people, and I think all but two bought something. I know we had quality stuff. Now it's at Goodwill. We made more than I expected, though, selling 2 dining room table and chair combos, a hutch, and an electric guitar.

We have a lead on our house. A couple (with 6 kids!) came through it on Thursday. No offer yet, but the realtor thinks there is one coming. Pray for us and our house!

Work is crazy. I still love it, but I am exhausted. I'm running a bath now. I am seriously going to relax in our huge tub, and then read myself to sleep. It's too hot to do much else anyway. My car temp said 101 the whole way home. Ugh. It's so hot.

I hope you all are doing well. I so love reading all your blogs. You keep me going!



Bummer about the yard sale but at least you made some sales. And I'm sure the weather paid a huge role -- it was miserable and humid here all weekend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and Nate to sell the house... keep us posted!


PS. Try not to sweat the lack of scale movement. Plateaus suck, but you can break through it.

Oh my - Taco Bell is my weakness. We don't have it within 6 hours of my city, so its always a treat. :)
