Heartbreak for the Nasons

We woke up today to find that Chloe's eye was nearly swollen shut, and the swelling was all the way up  into the top of her head.  So, being the responsible pet owners we are, we called a local vet and loaded her up and took her in to have her looked at and get some antibiotics for the eye infection we were sure she had.  But we were floored when the vet told us that it is a tumor behind her eye that is pressing against her eye from behind, and not only that but she has questionable spots on her lungs and underneath her heart. And possibly in her breasts.  The vet said

Last night was GREAT!

I know it's hard to believe (sarcasm intended), but guess who bowled a 211 last night? CODY DID! It was good to see his enthusiasm about it, even as he tried to act nonchalant about it. Ron and I were both really proud of him. I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.  We were really starting to wonder, what with the teenage-boy hygiene we have going on around this

First Page of our "New Home Album"

I'm off today, thank heavens! So I'll be spending most of my time cleaning and doing laundry. I do plan on going down to Lake Worth to buy me some new workout shoes, but that's going to be later. I've been looking at the dust in this place long enough.  Well, that, and the fact that now there are Halloween candy wrappers everywhere. I forgot about that little

Okay, so for day two I actually managed to be down a little from yesterday's weight. It was a good start, I guess, but the dieting part is the worst. Especially since last night Ron made some pretty good guacamole dip which I definitely enjoyed too much of. And the tortilla chips. Today, too. So I hope that the mile I went on the treadmill last night and bowling tonight will help.  What's

Day 1: 158.8 lbs and a Long Road

Well, y'all, it's that time again. We set up the treadmill today, and it is now officially day 1 of my second attempt at weight loss.  After losing the 25 pounds in early 2010 and feeling so great about myself, it turns out that somehow I have gained back 35 pounds since then. So after a few weeks of screaming and yelling at all my clothes that no longer fit, again, I decided that it's time to try again. So I am starting out at nearly 60 pounds, and my hope is that I can get down to about 125 pounds. Doable, right? Last time I was able to lose a pound a week, so I am shooting for 2lbs a week this time. We'll see!

Long time since

Hmm, interesting....

I haven't touched this blog in a long, long time, and someone has been looking into my blog just days before I decide to pull it up and see when the last time I blogged was. And it really HAS been a while!

So much has changed for us since the last time I blogged.  Damien has moved out into his own apartment in Wichita Falls and the rest of use have moved on to greener pastures in the Fort Worth area. It's been a real long road getting to where we are now. I didn't even blog about my surgery I had to have done, or Ron's more recent one. Yikes!  Time sure
