Month's End

I cannot believe that today is the last day of January! Where the heck did the month go? Today is my uncle's birthday, but they aren't celebrating it until next Sun. Glad I have off then too. I have been doing weight watchers now for 1 month, and while I might be logging my food as strictly as I would like too, I must be doing something right because I have lost 21 pounds so far! While I don't feel like I have, I am sure that it is possible. After the wedding I have to admit I did let myself go, and my motivation is that I want to look that way, if not better by our 1 year anniversary. I was truly happy then, and not that I am not now, but I was happy with myself then. With groundhog day being 2 days away, I am hoping that spring will be here soon. I would love to start walking our dogs again more, but I still might try to take them for longer walks starting today. I know that I won't have a lot of days off coming up here, and since money is tight at the igloo, I might just start doing what I did for the wedding. I will take the dogs for long walks on my days off and on my work days take them for semi long walks. It worked before, it can work again, right? I think though, that in order to do this the best I need to look into the Gentle Leader dog leash so that I can actually walk Gizmo, and not have her walk me. I think walks would be more beneficial for us all if we ALL enjoyed them. Hopefully with tax season coming up, Uncle Sam will love me and give me some money back. No, Penguin and I don't need anything, but it would be nice to be able to pay for the family camping trip to the 1000 Islands, and possibly even before that go away for the weekend once or hopefully a couple times to Assateague State Park. Other than the family camping trip, we don't have any other vacations planned, and with us starting to save for a house, we need to be frugal with our finances. Hopefully we will also be able to go on a trip to Chicago to visit with my sister J and her family and Penguin will actually get to see some of the sites.
Well, I hope everyone enjoys the last day of January, and I hope the start to this year has been as good to you as it has to be.

Peace love and rock n roll!
