It really was a sad weekend around our neighborhood. My neighbors son died a week ago and he died this weekend. They were both older but not old. The son that died this weekend lived with his mom and has taken care of her for many years. I can't imagine having to bury your child. It really made my heart break. You are supposed to be happy that they get to move on and go on pain free and have eternal life, but I always feel sad when a passing happens. Anyhoo, enough of the sad stuff.
I feel refreshed and ready to get back on track. I have been being healthier and recently got Zumba Core and it kills my back around the 6th song...and I KNOW that once I lose more weight my back will feel better and I will be able to do more. Degenerating discs, damage to my whole lower back with pinched nerves...I fell when I was 23 and it really busted my back. I used to be a manager for 3rd shift at a restaurant and I had both my arms stacked with plates of food to deliver to a take and I walked out of the kitchen and fell.....I did only drop 1 of the plates, so that was pretty awesome. I wish I would have dropped them all and caught myself with my hands instead of falling straight down. The dish washer was scrubbing the floor right outside the doorway with a bunch of soap and I didn't know so I walked right out and busted my behind. I am unable to do some exercises or stand up/sit down for long periods of time without extreme pain. Although my weight loss this week had me wanting to do a happy dance. The last 2 weeks have been not so good so I was happy there was a change this week. I won't share until tomorrow, because that is when the diet bet starts and want to stick to the schedule. Normally, I weigh in on Mondays though.
Here are the projects I worked on last week:
Mardi Gras Masks
Stuffed Cream Cheese King Cake for Mardi Gras
Sparkly Red Glitter Candles
RAK hershey kiss messages the kids gave out at the park for our Valentines Day Hoopla get together.
Special Hershey kiss messages.
Handmade V-day cards for teachers and other staff at my daughters school.
VOX Red Light Bottle!
My little love bug is a lover of heart anything, so I made her this heart ribbon head band.
It snowed a few days ago...we thought we would FINALLY get to pull out the rafts and be able to slide down the hill on side the house with it but it just melted. We haven't had a really good snow in 2 years.
