Fast, Short, Crazy Summer

Hi everyone! Hope you had a blessed summer. I can't believe it's over already. The weather here in Ohio was quite mild, but we did get to go swimming twice. So, I have the fall decs up's my favorite time of year.

I cut off some of my computer time due to being outside all summer, even withdrawing from some groups. I was getting spread too thin. But summer break is over, and I have to get back into the swing of things.

A quick summer recap... birthday parties galore, baseball games, vacation to see the in-laws, a couple of fairs (we'll get to the fair food in a second), out of town family visiting, family reunions, church, Journey Group (Thurs. bible study), Wed night Bible school, camping, starting up a scrapbook club..whew, I'm tired typing, lol, family get togethers, going to the park alot, garage sale... I think that's it... Oh, wait! I must not forget working full-time during all this. I am working 4- 10 hr days so that gives me a longer weekend and that helps quite a bit.

It was fun though. Jessica turned 4, Sam turned 2, Emily is turning 1 in 2 wks (she's our last kiddo birthday) and I turned 34. I'll have to post some pictures, maybe a slide show :)

I'll have to post more about my scrapbook club. I'm so excited about it!!!!!!!!!

Now to the dreaded by Oh so yummy fair food.... I gained 15 lbs over the summer. I've gone from 255 (size 18/20)to 270 (size 22/24)but Praise the Lord it's still not back to 320 size 30/32)! Truthfully though, I have NO motivation for any dieting right now (((big sigh))). So there it is...beat me with a wet noodle.

I did start a Facebook account and am soooooooo addicted to "farming". If anyone want to follow me there, you can find me under "Sandy Bell Hentzel".

Hope you have a blessed weekend!
