Finally got the hint. The other two went to their favorite spots in the basement, but MoJo is still watching over me. Well…sorta. ;)

I’m painting the landing (instead of watching season 6 of Parks & Rec which was just added to Netflix, yay adulting!) and the dogs don’t know what to do about it.

There are numerous comfortable places where they could lounge and still see me…yet they’re just pacing around staring up at me like I’m really cramping their Saturday style.

We have finally replaced our scale.

I had mixed feelings about this. I’d like to be a “no numbers” person and not worry about it at all. Ever. But I also noticed an increasing trend of willy-nillyness in the time we’ve been without a scale. So for now, I think I need a little bit of structure. I’ve never been someone who is obsessed with the scale (I only weigh in once a week).

Jeremy picked out a high-tech toy this time around. It syncs to an app on your phone to track your progress! This is good for me because I’m terrible at retaining numerical information and could never tell if I was making progress with body fat% and all that. This will track that stuff for me.

Also kind of cool, you can choose not to see your weight on the scale, but only the amount you’ve lost. I’ve never seen a scale that does that.

Welcome back weigh in Wednesdays! ;)

I shouldn’t go into TJ Maxx.

I had to stop at Toys R Us for the birthday party tomorrow though and it happened to be right by TJ Maxx. I found so many goodies!

1. My long-term goal is still to make or buy those colorful wooden knobs to hang things on in our entryway, but this rack couldn’t be any more perfect for our home!!! I squealed out loud when I read it.

2. Another lil something for the gallery wall. I really need to figure that wall out…I’ve got plenty of stuff for it now.

3. Fox mug! Obvious need, because it’s almost cider and hot chocolate season. And because it’s a fox. :)

What songs/albums make you think of Autumn?

posted 3 days ago

I’m using this incredibly slow day at work to build the perfect Autumn playlist on Spotify.

Important.

Parks & Rec captures “the general public” disturbingly well.

I rolled the crap out of my calves with The Stick last night. Ow ow ow ow WOW. Then I spent the rest of the night with both legs on heating pads. It seems like it helped.

Good thing too, because I have a fabulous, busy busy weekend ahead of me!!

  • I teach Zumba tomorrow morning
  • Kiddo Birthday party at the skating rink (SKATING! YAY!) tomorrow afternoon
  • "Girls only" trip to the flea market with my Mom, sis and niece on Sunday
  • Game night with our friends Scott and Samantha amanthasarie on Sunday night.

And at SOME POINT I’m supposed to do some painting. Jeremy started the last part that was left, the upstairs landing area, but I need to do another coat and all the trim. Bleh.

This was taken from Refit&#8217;s Facebook page this morning:
"Someone out there is waiting for the WHEN. You know who you are. You&#8217;ve got goals and dreams and aspirations&#8212;big and small&#8212;but you&#8217;re waiting for the WHEN for those dreams to be fulfilled. 
 WHEN I&#8217;m not so busy&#8230; WHEN my kids are out of the house&#8230; WHEN my job settles down&#8230; WHEN I lose the last 15 pounds&#8230; WHEN I get the funding&#8230; WHEN he&#8217;s reached his goal&#8230; WHEN I learn more&#8230; WHEN I know God&#8217;s full plan&#8230;

 So here&#8217;s a question: what if your WHEN is NOW? 
 We often surround our desires with just-out-of-reach criteria as a way of protecting ourselves from risk. OUCH. Read that again. That&#8217;s rich.
 The last 15 pounds may not ever come off&#8230;but the dream can be reached with your current weight. You may never learn all you need to know&#8230;but many ideas are generated from failures. God might not reveal His full plan to you&#8230;but He can exceed your imagination with a mustard seed of faith.
 Is your WHEN now? 
 Remember, Jesus asked the disciples to drop their nets. And they did. They didn&#8217;t say &#8220;Just a sec, Jesus. Let me just roll this net up neatly, pack my things and text my family so they know where I am.&#8221; Ridiculous, right?
 THEY DROPPED THEIR NETS. 
 Their WHEN was RIGHT THEN.
 Is your WHEN now? If not, what are you waiting for? 
 Know your WHEN and be ready to drop your net and GO.
