Yes, I’m alive. I’m aliiiive. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? What I can say? I’ve been all over the place.
So what did she (being me) do?
- I made strides on that musical bucket list by seeing this gentleman in concert last month. Even better, I took my mom and we screamed like we were 16 years old because that’s how we do. Even better than better, I was happy to make my mom happy. Such good, good times.
- 60,000 of my family in faith traveled to the DC area for two weeks of fellowship. I can’t really describe it in words. Just know that experience can be a beautiful teacher, and to experience those two weeks taught me qualities I didn’t know I had. It was something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.
- I dyed her hair. Whaaat? Yes. Oh, how I love it. It’s a copper bronze-y, red-y color and it just brightens everything up for me. Needless to say, my mother nearly collapsed when she saw it. She who dyes her hair on the regular. Ha! (Please note that being in my mid-30s means nothing to my mother. It means nothing.) Nevertheless, I informed her–to her everlasting, why-does-she-insist-on-growing-up chagrin–that I will be maintaining the color. But we’ll discuss hair and those changes in a future post.
- I lost 20 pounds. Whaaat? Yes. Since I don’t weigh myself (to remain sane), it was nice to visit the doctor last month and get this news. Onwards and upwards, though, you know? I decided to take the weight loss thing at a normal pace. My goal, really, is to have better health. But this is a wonderful plus as we continue on that particular journey.
Just a few things going on in this life of mine.
Be back soon.
