Off the Wagon

I fell off the wagon just a bit, dear readers, and have not quite climbed back on. No excuses, just wanted to check in with my blogger buddies and let you know that while the scale is not moving (at least, not in a good way), I am alive & (sort've) well and trudging along here.

My household is slowly calming down, everyone is settling in except for the population of dustbunnies who are being removed little by little, day by day. This new commune living we've got going here is working out very nicely so far, love having my kids all under one roof and around the dinner table! We are all sharing the cooking responsibility which is interesting and a big relief but also a bit challenging for my eating plan.

So, today is a new day, a fresh opportunity to make good choices! Make it a beauty-full one!

Emotional Roller Coaster

Sorry I've been missing in action, dear friends, I have just had a helluva busy week and little time to post! As I mentioned over at my other blog, my eldest daughter and her family have moved back in with us for a while and though it's wonderful to have them all around, it's also torn the castle upside down and has also created a roller coaster of emotions. It's not easy moving 2 adults and a menagerie of pets into an already-crowded space, we're all a bit edgy, a little overwhelmed, and as is my pattern I have turned to food to assuage the stress & anxiety. I haven't been tracking and have eaten more than my fair share of pizza take-out and other junk, but this morning I am regrouping and getting back on track. Things are calming down, the kids are almost settled in, and I'm feeling so fortunate that we have each other, and a big enough house where we can all live together, so many others affected by the recession don't have this option!

Hope all is well with you, will be posting regularly again very soon.

Have a Beauty-Full Day!
