Been going through a bit of a plateau at this start of December, with both weight loss and homeschool. We decided to take another week after Thanksgiving to get adjusted to the new kid in the house (Dante) and enjoy Sean being home for as long as possible.
Plateaus always end, however! School resumes tomorrow for a couple weeks before Christmas. With weight-loss, after a great time at the Houston Supernatural Women of Letters holiday party last night and eating WAY more yummy and bad-for-me stuff than I should have (“If you take the fudge away from me I’ll fudgin’ kill you!”), I actually weighed in this morning and showed a loss. I’m 0.6 lbs away from my 20 lbs gone mini-goal and ordered my t-shirt this morning in anticipation of finishing up that last little bit by the time the shirt gets here! Check out the design I got below!
I’m pretty sure I’m not going to reach my goal of getting back under 200 by the end of the year, but I’m still going to try to get as close as I can. Definitely by the end of January though! ^_^
Things are going good with Dante. He’s 8 weeks old now and growing every day. We brought him with us to my friend Claudia’s house to introduce him and get him a little more socialization at the party last night. He slept most of the time, but everyone thought he was adorable (rightly so!).
I’m a little too eager to start his training and forget briefly sometimes when I get frustrated that he’s still a little puppy. Right now we’re just bonding with him and trying to curve his biting US habit with supplying him with lots of safe things to chew on while he’s teething. He still tries to nom nom on us, so it’s a battle, but it’ll eventually pay off (here’s hoping). GSDs are evidently notorious for their biting/nipping.
His ears should start flopping over any day now as they grow. I can already tell they’re on the verge when he runs (or attempts to) and they wiggle. It’s so adorable!
As the year rounds up, I can safely say we are in a much better place than we were at the beginning of the year. Getting healthier physically and financially, way happier, and our family has grown to 7! I do love my little ^_^ family, furbabies included!
