I laughed so hard when I saw this cartoon on Pinterest that I had to find its source. LOVE that Shoebox blog and I thought it very appropriate for today’s Weight Loss Wednesday post.
Anyhoo, before we get started, I gots to share something with ya…
If the above cartoon is true, then there are several hundred termites around here that should be looking about as big as a house about right now… my house that is… just sayin’
We will now pause now for a brief PSA on the matter.
Have you had your house inspected (FOR FREE) by a company that specializes in termite extermination–THIS YEAR?
Do it. Now. I’ll wait.
Why do you ask?
Floor joists turn into toothpicks pretty quickly… just sayin’
Never fear, all of this mess is being fixed, treated and those little suckers are either gone or on their way to being dead… and we are now on an annual plan so that they don’t eat us out of house and home…
So what does this have to do with Weight Loss Wednesday?
Well, this little hiccup has sent us back into renovation mode (TEMPORARILY) and is about to send me over the edge.
The ceiling had to come down to make sure that our bedroom didn’t fall into our livingroom/play area… (and thankfully the little boogers only took out one floor joist and were focused on mauwing down on a closet so, the rest of the floor was just fine.)
HOWEVER, that meant the playroom and living room were OUT OF COMMISSION all last week and all this week… and that would include El… (and did I mention my sanity…a.ka. playroom).
Where the weighty part of this subject comes in is that I had a fatty winter due much in part to the stress around the world being turned upside down for the kitchen remodel … Weight loss and remodeling do not go together… just sayin’
Add to that no El… and trying to work without a playroom to entertain and engage with Miss Add… and add to that the inability for Miss Add to play outside because of the rain that just won’t stop… and you have me fearing that dang dress doesn’t have a prayer….
HOWEVER, miracle of miracles… despite everything I still lost 3 lbs this week!
AND, Puddie has promised a working livingroom/play area by tomorrow… so, I should be able to do fine without skipping a beat…
