We had to put a new engine in our van last December. It was quite a blow to us financially. Two weeks ago we had to put in a new alternator, tension rod, and various other things I have no clue about. The van has never run better. David's car is still going. It's funny to think that it's been the dependable car at it's age (13 years) and it's appearance. We are thankful to not have any car notes.
I am looking forward to seeing my friend, Stephanie, later this month. She will be flying out for a quick weekend visit. It's been a year since I have last seen her. We talk lots on the phone to get us by in between visits. She has three boys just like me.
David is down to 198 pounds! We are still going strong. I hit 77 pounds lost today. We are good to encourage each other and it has become a lifestyle for us. David commented the other day that we've both surpassed the goal we set for ourselves. What a great feeling that is! We will both be in need of summer clothing when the weather turns warm.
My parents booked a beach house for them, us, and my sister's family for late July. This will be our fourth year to go together. We are all looking forward to it. Last year was a lot of fun. I wonder if Katie will be riding the ferris wheel again this year?
