    Dh and I must be psychically linked.

    Last night dh comes to me, hands me an advertisement. FOR HOUSES!

    Didn't I just mention yesterday that I was thinking of moving within the next couple years?

    Dh is wanting to move from our area, over the last 4 years there have been attempted kidnappings, not only here, but in the city everywhere, thankfully, they have never been successful. We've had our van broken into. So now, dh is thinking....

    The area ...

    I filled one space for the daycare. I interviewed last week, and they needed time to discuss, and I was the first place. They went to other home daycares, and realized that I was their first choice They are bringing the deposit in a couple days with the paperwork. Yay!! And tentatively, I have the other space filled for beginning of Sept as well.

    Stepped on that scale... and it is down again a little. You could say I'm losing water, but I'm drinking 3 liters a day!(3 quarts). So i am far from dehydrating. Yeah, water is going, but I envision it whisking away toxins and fat from my body, not dehydrating. Oddly enough, I have doubled water consumption and I am still SO I keep drinking.

    Started off the day on the wrong foot. I SLEPT in! I had to answer the door for the first family in a housecoat. All that said, he hadn't knocked yet. I hate when this happens, thankfully it's usually less than once a year. And it's a good thing it's a short walk to work.

    I'm now drinking my first 16 oz of water along with my vitamins. You'd think with all our technologies, they'd find a better filler so the pills weren't so HUGE!

    I am a daily weigh-er, and I won't apologize ...
