A hodge-podge of updates

Just thought I would update on some of the things going on at our house:
My oldest son (with some help from his younger siblings) spent 4 hrs building this snow fort in our backyard. Unfortunately, it is starting to melt away, as is the rest of the snow in our yard.
But it was fun while it lasted!

I am proud to announce I have lot 7 lbs since starting my diet the beginning of this year (I hope to make it 8 by the end of the month!).
I have been doing it the old-fashioned way of just eating right, drinking tons of water, and spending 20-30 minutes a day in exercise. I am feeling more energy, and getting more accomplished. Only 11 more lbs to go!

Our tax forms finally arrived! (Anyone else happy about this?)

My girlfriend in Alaska called to say she will be going to Seattle the middle of the month and hoping to make a stop to visit with us for a few days. I usually see her every 3-4 yrs, but this will be her second visit in 6 months!

My newest project is reorganizing our school area. This will be a big job since I have a ton of stuff in a small area.
I think I better go start right now!

The kids remind me of myself when I was that age, a few years ago.
