It's been so long since I've been here that Blogger refused to recognize me. The Nerve!
This summer has shot past me at the speed of sound. I think the sonic boom thereof just hit me, but I won't have time to react to it until...oh....some time in 2013.
Seriously, I have been BUSY. I know, I know, other people are busy too, but they still have time to write. I'm a slacker, I admit it! I am also too much of a slacker to make a long list of all the activities I have been involved in. Suffice to say there were mystery parties and tea parties and WAY too many fairs (4-H, anyone?) and 3, count 'em THREE mountain top experiences (literally). Factor all that in with active kids, grandkids and 3 needy, elderly parents and you might see the tip of the insanity.
I'm looking forward to a nice, peaceful, stay-at-home Fall - right after I spend all of next weekend away on a major Search and Rescue training! Then Grandma Dawn will be stopping by for a visit (Wooooot!) and NaNoWriMo is looming on the scene.
School - as in textbook work - is off to a very slow start this year, but the girles have been learning, learning, LEARNING all summer long, so I'm not too worked up about it. We do need to get on the ball, though, or they'll never master their spelling and math!
I gained back the weight I lost. Thus, I need to lose it again. You'd think it would STAY OFF considering how much energy I burn up, but when I get busy (and when am I not busy?) I get lazy about what I eat, so those calories creep up and up. *sigh* By the time I finally lose this last 20 lbs, I will have lost (and regained) 200! Just call me Yo-Yo girl. At any rate, I aim to tackle the weight again after the SAR training is over. Of course, the fact that I am planning to teach the girls how to bake this year should make that a challenge!
Maybe I should write a book entitled "Losing the Last 20 Pounds For the Very Last Time"...
Since I hadn't blogged in a while, I decided to check the search "keyword analysis" for my site. Many of them were expected, like Groovy's Ruminations. Others? Not so.
I find it interesting that one person came to my blog looking for Girly Armpits. Hmmm. While my armpits are certainly girly - especially in the Summer when I actually shave them - I don't typically post them on my blog. I'm just sayin'...
Someone else came to my Groovy site looking for
5267 feet - the highest peak in Maine. Thank you! Thank You!)
