The one with mud

So right now the weather can't decide if it is spring, winter, or anything in between. Our new driveway is somewhere around a 1/4 mile long, through the woods, and is one and a half feet deep with mud. I can't go anywhere, no one can get in. My husband took the trunk into work. If I have to have any kind of medical attention, I have to call an ambulance and THEY will only be able to drive half way up our driveway before they would have to hike the rest of the way.

On a similar note, Abby is feeling tons better! She had a pulled muscle and her hip needed to be adjusted. She didn't have any broken bones or dislocations. But she was pretty miserable for 3 or 4 days. I am just so glad that she is getting better. I was so afraid that she would be 14 and have to tell her friends, "Sorry, I can't go rollerskating I feel off the couch as a baby."

It is a cold and dreary day today. Dark and forbearing.

We finally cleaned out a spot of semi opened boxes to put up my treadmill. Hopefully that will help with some weight loss, because I have been feeling very cow like. Not even retail therapy or window shopping for something other than the yucky stained tees I own helps. I just look at clothes and feel discussed because my huge mommy belly pooch just hangs out. I bought the Beachbody Slim in 6 kit yesterday. You know, the one that you see on paid programming. I know I probably won't lose 45 lbs and go from a size 20 to a size 4 like everyone else they show. But some aerobic exercise to the abs can't hurt, right?

Have you ever seen the commercial on tv where the woman is advertising a weight loss clinic and she says she went from a size 10 to size 2. As if size 10 is huge to begin with.

Glad Abbey is ok.
Wow, that's a long driveway to even put stone on.
Woo hoo on the treadmill, however with the nicer weather it would probably be more fun to walk outside?
Good luck! I so know what you mean, I lost no weight from last week & am sorta in a funk about it too.
