Had a lovely Sunday with Princess Tigger snd her family.  The girls were excited because I didn't tell them that we were having visitors.

We went out to the first summer farmers market of the year today.  I was hoping that the sun and the fresh air would help me be less tired.

I was surprised to see that our cute little town was INUNDATE with visitors.  Apparently our farmers market draws most of province to our quaint shops.  I have never seen our streets so filled with people and cars.  I am still totally exhausted, but it was lovely.

So Frustrating

I do NOT understand how tired I am.  I can't drag my butt aroumd to get things done.  It is so frustrating.

Frame of Mind

I have pulled myself up and reminded myself that as much as I loved Yarmouth, I don't live there anymore.  I live in the BEAUTIFUL Annapolis Valley and I need to find all the lovely goings about the valley to fall in love with.  It is SO nice here.  Prince Charming is working here, the farms are wonderful, the waterfront is peaceful, and I love the lighthouses.  I need to let go of the past and let myself fall in love with here in now.

Prince Charming got his new uniform today and he looks so handsome.  He really likes his new job and the place he works for.  I am so proud of him!

Oh boy.

I don't know why, but I am so very exhausted.  I am overwhelmingly tired, dragging my butter through the last few days.  I can hardly get everything done.  There is not enough coffee in the world to fix this kind of tired.  I have had a cold for a LONG time so maybe it is just dragging me out.

Little Prince had an awful night last night.  Neither one of us got much sleep last night.  He was noisy, cranky, and restless.  I can only assume that it was a side effect of his horrible therapy appointment.  He hasn't got another appointment for two weeks.  I hope his next one goes better.

Today, I am dragging my sleepy hiney around trying to get things done.  I did do some baking for the kids before they got up.  Princess Magpie caught me in the act and was happy to help with cleaning the bowl (or licking it out anyway LOL)

Well That Could Have Gone Better

I am becoming concerned with Little Prince's relationship with his new therapist.  He doesn't like her.  He doesn't like therapy with her.  He gets frustrated.  By the time we are finished, he is angry and upset.  He plunks himself on the floor with a toy and his back to the therapist and screams when she comes near him.  I honestly feel like too much of this and he starting to regress in regards to his therapy.

Not Too Bad

Little Prince had a dentist appointment today.   It was tricky in the waiting room but once the dentist came to check him out, he was pretty good.  I am proud of him because he does NOT let people at his mouth.  He does have to get some teeth he bumped pulled, but that is a problem for another day.

Weekly Weigh-in

I  did it!!!!  Ten years ago I dieted like crazy and lost weight but without any sort of plan to keep it off.  I got down to 189 but it was hard and I gave up.  I only stayed that weight a VERY short time.  In no time I was up to 264 lbs and miserable.  I never felt like I could get back to 189 lbs. Today, I hit 187.8!!!  I am feeling great.  I am continuing on and aiming for 100 lbs lost.  And when I get to the end, I will continue to work to maintain.  I am getting Healthy and there is no stopping me now!!  Here's to new record lows for me!!

In an effort to miss Yarmouth less, I went to the waterfront today.

It was one of my favorite places in Yarmouth.  I loved watching the seagulls, the boats, the fishermen, and just soaking up the atmosphere.  It was always a relaxing place to watch the activities around me.

So today, I decided to give the waterfront here a try.  It was super quiet.  There were no boats, no fishermen, no seagulls . . . nothing.  It was just me, my thoughts, and the wind.

I did get some nice pictures though.

I was thinking about Yarmouth today.   I would like to go back for a visit this summer.  I miss it, summer there was lovely.  There are so many little things that I want to revisit there.

Important Lesson

I have really been trying to teach the Little girls that it is important to clean up after yourself.  They leave a message in their wake everywhere they go.  The playroom, their bedroom, the kid's lounge, and the classroom are a constant struggle for me to keep clean.  So I am going to start making sure that they clean up one area before they move on to another area.
