Thanks to being so busy with moving, I've kept the weight off and lost another pound. This has come from increased activity, plus (to a smaller extent) from the inability to snack because the kitchen is not fully assembled. (We still don't have our stove installed, and with paintbrushes and paint trays all over the counters, it's not a place for cooking.) We have a kitchenette-sized fridge, so keep things for our son's school lunches and small items, just not a lot of food. In the daytime unless my husband is around to go to lunch, I just drink tea and wait for dinner. Dinners have mostly been out: nearby are sushi, Vietnamese and Mexican restaurants, easy, healthy and not costly, plus a couple of places with fancy chefs. I eat a pretty light diet, which hasn't changed much. Adding the constant movement has seemed to be where the weight loss has come from. And if so, the question becomes how to keep the activity going once everything is unpacked, cleaned and painted. (Not that this will happen soon! lol)
My mom and her husband need to move from their house to assisted care, due to Mom having a stroke a month ago. They caught on immediately what it was and the docs were able to dissolve the clot with medication, but she is still less able to take care of herself. This means her kids are scrambling to do visits to senior-living centers, and once we find something (not easy) then we will have to gather and sort Mom's house (not easy either) and do some fix-up before selling it. Since this hit when I was also busy selling a house and setting up another, I wasn't as free to pitch in as my sisters thought I should be. (I'm glad it wasn't also tax time, that would have been the end of my relationship with them.) Now at least I'll be able to help the effort. Mom's house needs attention, mostly cosmetic but it still takes time.
School won't be out until June 22, and my son is scrambling to get homework in and begin to study for finals. He's going to take Trig as a summer class, ambitious because it begins at 8:30 am and he is simply not a morning boy. But he wants the class off his list. I'm all for it. His problems in school this last term came from having too much work. Spreading it out so it's not 7 classes per term is a great idea.
Weather here is springlike for sure. We're in a rain/sun pattern for a while, great for the garden.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
