Still truckin' along!

So, I'm still coming along with my weight loss. I've now lost 6 lbs and I'm still eating very low carbs. Hopefully, I'll see a 10 lb weight loss (total) by the end of February. That's my goal, anyway!

Life has been pretty quiet around the Stiner household lately! We've been working on small projects here and there, trying to get this house ready to be put on market. It still seems that we have so much to do and just never enough money/time to do it with. I really hope to be out of this school district by 2010. Even if it means changing the kids' school mid-year. They deserve better. We all deserve better!

I have been creating like crazy this past month! 18 layouts!!! Here are some of my favorites:
These would have to be my top 5. Now, of course, I have NO mojo. I have no idea where it went to but, I think that it's gone for a while. I haven't been feeling very good for a few days (I think that I'm getting a cold or something) so, that could be to blame but, we'll see!

On another note, I would like to say that I am so happy to have what I have. A happy, healthy family. A job. A house. 2 cars. And so on, and so on. So many people are losing there jobs, which in turn, they seem to loose a lot of other things. Then, there are families that just wait to hear good news, such as their little girl's scan to be clear and have no sign of returning cancer (WOOHOO Audrey!). Also, a little girl that I've been following (via web) for the past few months, who was just 4 years old and diagnosed with a brain tumor, has lost her battle. Her family has just lost their little girl. I can't even imagine. That just makes my heart ache. For all the above mentioned. I know that I am truly blessed.

So, I will end this post on that note. Be thankful for all that you have!!!

We, Audrey's family are very thankful for what we have! It can be taken from us all too soon.

You have been a scrapbooking machine! I love all the layouts!

Keep up the good work on your diet, 6 pounds really is good!
