Happy New Year

So....what are your New Year's resolutions??? I've decided to start the "Body for Life" program. I started Monday. I am alternating the treadmill with upper body weight lifting and lower body exercises. I am eating six small meals a day. I have not been hungry, but I am so sore I can hardly move! Austin is laughing at me today because every time I get out of the chair or go to sit on the chair I'm "owe, owe owe!" Going down steps is MURDER.

Austin got his stitches out last week from where his cyst was. There was a small area that was still not healed, so we've been irrigating it and packing it with gauze a couple of times a day. I think it is starting to look better now.

Amber started doing some research on the internet and found some very sad pictures and information on animal testing. She just made up some fliers and went out delivering them. Some of the big companies involved in animal cruelty that she found are: IAMs, KFC, Mars Candy Company, PetsMart, Loreal, and also Columbia University.

We had a good Christmas and made our trip up to the Mall of America. The mall was so, so busy. I guess we weren't the only ones with the idea. The hotel was so, so busy too. It took forever to get an elevator. But we did find some good deals. We had no problem spending our Christmas money!!!

Austin and I got back to homeschooling on Monday. He really enjoys the Time4Learning program we've been working on. He is doing so well with his Reading program and spelling/writing too.

BYE for now!

Good for you, resolutions and getting school started. We're still struggling to get school up to speed. It's actually more like withdrawal from games/movies, but we're getting there!
