One Week Down, Five to Go

Ok, so this Lent thing has been going much better than expected and, with the exception of a few random side-effects (um, running, anyone?), I am doing quite well.

I’m quite pleased to report that; I haven’t experienced uncontrollable cravings for either chocolate or Diet Pepsi. Granted, that will change here in about a week or so, when Mother Nature descends upon me with Eve’s Curse but, for now; I am enjoying the illusion of awesome self-control.

The rest of my life is going along swimmingly, as well; the wrestling program has settled into a comfortable routine-we have our home tournament this weekend-and, I am currently in between duties for the baseball program (for another week, anyway).

The kids are doing well in school and, although the weather has turned quite lovely and Springish, there has yet to be any indication that Spring Fever will derail them anytime, soon.

Hugh is plugging along on his P90x fitness program and wants you all to know that he has lost at least one extra chin. I never noticed that he had spare chins so; I’m taking his word for it and merely passing along the message.

In a bit of exciting (to me) news, I just signed my first writer’s agreement; starting very soon I will be a contributing writer on Rocky Mountain Moms Blogs. I’m really excited about the project and, while I’m also a bit nervous, I’m also really looking forward to the challenge. Plus, I get to say that I am “working” with people like Jen and that, right there, is reason to celebrate.

All in all, the past week has been pretty great and I’m really starting to think that the next five weeks are going to be, as well. On the other hand, if you all find me crying into my Wheaties this time next week, please feel free to blame Eve and her stupid apple.
