What's the difference between inlaws and outlaws?

Saturday, March 28, 2009

outlaws are wanted.....

OK, that gives you an idea of my day I guess. For those of you who do not know, my 17 year old SIL lives with me. Her, MIL and FIL couldn't get together and they needed us to step in temporarily in October..... it's now March, about to be April.... and although we are handling it.... it's not easy. We had to discuss with MIL & FIL financial contributions towards her care and it was interesting at best. Ok, so thanks for letting me vent and get it out cause right now, all I can do is pray!

Oh, talking about praying, most of you also know that I have had my house on the market (for a while now) and am asking all of you to say a prayer for us to find a buyer. We really can't stay here. With 5 of us in a great small 2 bedroom house we just need to sell. Because of the location (right on a major road) and the layout of the home (steep stairs and bathroom on the first floor with bedrooms on the second floor) we need a specific buyer, maybe a single person, a young couple, a first time home buyer, without plans of little kids, possibly with an older child, or a single parent. So, any extra prayers you can send our way for this intention are greatly appreciated.

Now for my update on my healthy lifestyle goals: I made ok food choices today and did some cardio but not pushing as hard as I normally do. I am just not feeling up to it. I was glad that I weighed in with a loss yesterday, and am hoping for the same next week. I'm also very happy to have TOM again this month without being induced with medication. I am looking to lose at least 2 pounds this week. More than hoping, I'm going to push and make the progress happen!

    Your life is filled with tribulations and trials and you're handling it all very well. You know you will always have my continued prayers to sell the house. Good luck with the ambitious goal of pushing ahead to lose 2 lbs this week. If anyone can do it, you can!

    Sandy ; So you are a comedienne too ? LOL Just keep hanging in there, kiddo, you've been doing a great job so far being a "mom" to your SIL. Just keep trusting in the Lord on that matter, and all will work out fine ! The same with selling the house, it's all just a matter of time, my dear. Patience, my friend ! LOL ( I know; easy for me to say, huh ? )

    As far as the healthy living goes ; it's better to not push yourself with the cardio, if you're not up to it - for you will only burn yourself out too fast ! And you definitely don't want to do that ! Wise food choices and some cardio each day should be enough to lose the pounds that you want - so go, girl ! You will do this ! We have faith in you ! ~ MommaJoani
