Well it's been a long time since I have posted and several things have happened.
First of all, I had gastric bypass surgery on November 10th. Wow, I've already lost 31 pounds. I can't believe it. It's nice to see the weight come off, but it has by no means been easy. I have had many hurdles to overcome. I have started a separate blog to detail my journey in this weight loss. It's called My Personal Battleground. I started it a week or so after my surgery and have been documenting my hospital stay, weight loss, and emotional battles that I've gone through. I have it set to private because I am talking about my weight and I think that is a very personal subject. If you would like to read it, email me and I will give you access. I just don't want any and everybody out in blogger world to be able to read it. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am very excited about the changes in my body and I can't wait to see what is to come.
Secondly, my sister moved out yesterday. It wasn't pleasant and I hate that she left on the terms that she did, but it is what it is. I do have to say that it was nice to just have my family at home last night. All of the boys were excited to be able to sit around in their underwear if they wanted to. I love my sister and her boys dearly, but she really needs help that I can't give her. Maybe someday she will see that everyone is not out to get her and that we truly love her.
Lastly, we finished up football season and started basketball. It is a never ending cycle of sports. I guess that is what happens at this age. We love it and can't wait for every single game.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Happy Christmas shopping. I myself have only done a little bit.
I hope each of you have a blessed day. Love you all.
