It's a Misty Moisty Morning...

...when foggy is the weather. So foggy, in fact, the fog advisory lifted only a short time ago.

(Usually there are red tail lights on the right side of this highway heading toward Dallas.)

The fog, clouds, and mist suit my mood just fine. Too bad I can't crawl back in bed for a few hours. It's great sleeping weather.

In other news, DH and I sat the kids down last night and had a discussion about house rules. It was made perfectly clear to them all, in front of each other, what the rules are, what the consequences could be, and what's expected of them. It was a late night since the Brown Eyed Girl had work. She has additional rules to follow. Not from us, but due to her stint through prison. Parole and probation. As a condition of coming back home she has to abide by those rules as well. She was not very pleased, but we made it perfectly clear (to all of them) that if they don't like our rules, they are free to move out. DD and Sonshine are perfectly fine with the rules. But that Brown Eyed Girl just seems to chafe under them. And it's not like our house rules are really that difficult and harsh. Sheesh.

In other other encouraging news, I have dropped a few more pounds. I haven't talked about it since the beginning of the month. I'm still ingesting more carbs and sugar than I should, but miraculously, in the last week, the weight has trickled off. Now I've got to switch from carb-laden dinners to protein & veggie rich meals. That should help me get past the line I'm straddling. One scale says 141.8, one says 139.9. I'd rather be firmly planted in the 130s so on to the next step. My goal is somewhere between 116 and 120.

Sunday breakfast plans in Fort Worth with friends are finally finalized. I'm excited about hanging out with ladies and seeing more of my city. Fort Worth Fridays will be every other Friday, probably starting February 8th.

I'm glad it's the weekend. Big plans??

No big weekend plans for me, but it's hubby's birthday so I'm sure we'll do something. Have fun in Fort Worth!

Lara said...

Congrats on your weight loss! You're heading in the direction you want, and that's got to feel good.

Have fun at breakfast tomorrow! I may get to see a movie this weekend, but I'll probably just be boring and do laundry and chores instead.

Happy birthday to your hubby, Regina!

And thanks for the wishes of fun, gals. There's no doubt it will be.

Congrats on the weight loss! Haven't seen you on MFP. I've gotten hubby hooked now, too. We've each lost close to 20 pounds so far. Gracious, me, though--118! O_O I'd be emaciated at that weight. Of course, I'm 5'5" and have HUGE...pillows. :P
