Now that I'm Back

Dear Friends,

I'm afraid I've lost my mojo for doing projects around the house. I still want to do all the things on my summer projects list, but the enthusiasm and urgency is gone.

As well, I have to get the kids ready to go on their respective Scout and Girl Guide trips. Both leave Friday--Aurelia at about 5am or so, my son in the evening. I'll be looking after my three and a half year old nephew on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well. I'm feeling a bit stretched.

I have started a diet to lose weight. I decided to use the Mayo Clinic diet which is a food exchange (or portion control) regime based upon the food pyramid. I'm also using cognitive therapy techniques as outlined by Judith Beck in The Beck Diet Solution.

The gallery wall above the sofa is still in progress, and I have purchased paint to do the Master bedroom, but it will be a while before I get to those things.

My focus this week is to put the house back together and re-establish my housekeeping routines while I simultaneously pull out whatever the kids need and get them packed.

I am posting regularly at my psyche my soma about the weight loss stuff. Join me there if you like.

Welcome home! Sounds like you have quite enough on your plate without house projects. Besides, summer is too short to clog it up with too much.

Good luck with the weight loss! The Mayo system is a good one.

I know how you feel...my deco mojo has up and left.... I don't want to do much right now at all....

tell me how you like the mayo system...I've gone down two pant sizes in the past 3 mos or so...but I know that's going to stop soon and I need a program to keep me on track...
