M.I.P.A... I've Been "Missing In Prim Action"

Hello everyone! It has been soooo long..... toooo long! Where do I start? First, I need to thank each and every one of you that I got emails from! You are SO sweet to check up on me. So many of you (because I haven't blogged in so long) were making sure that everything was o.k. with me and my family. I appreciated these emails more than you will ever know. And I am happy to report that I just haven't been blogging because I have not had time, nothing more serious than that.

And I say "happy" to report. I am not really happy about it. I missed blogging terribly! And I missed my blogging friends/followers as well. I didn't even get on the computer to comment on any of your amazing blogs either. MANY of you asked about my makeovers. I have not done a makeover in so long and I miss that too! But have NO fear...I have a shelf FULL of things just waiting to be made over!! I can't wait to get back at it!

I am hopeful now that school has started and Fall is approaching that there will be much more computer time and time for makeovers!

I do have to tell you that a lot of my time has been "ME" time! I have always tried to take care of myself and my health to some extent. But I decided now was the time to really pay attention to what I eat, how I exercise and what I am putting in my body. I did start seeing a personal trainer/nutrition expert. I am learning SO much and I have to say it has been both interesting and fun! I have always loved Yoga and have started back up with it again! I won't bore you with my complete LOVE of Yoga but if you ever get the chance TRY IT! It is amazing for the mind and the body! I am doing Yoga along with strength training, cardio, and mixing in some Pilates here and there as well. The increased energy that I feel is wonderful! I have lost 10% body fat and it feels amazing!

I was asked by my trainer on my first day "Sarah, why are you here"? And my answer was simply...I want to get healthy, I have five children and I want to be able to keep up with them and do things with them for a long time to come! And now is the time to do it! I was ready, willing and able! So that is just a little update on what I have been spending some of my time on.

We also went on a couple of little family vacations, had a family reunion. Summer baseball etc. We have my nephew's wedding coming up on September 12th. I have been going to bridal showers, it has been SO fun! So as you can see, I haven't been home long enough to do a makeover or do ANYTHING with my house for that matter. My house is in desperate need of some rearranging and Fall decorating. Because Fall is my most favorite season!

We will be getting new carpet in the next week which I am excited about..I know that will inspire me to change things up a bit around here! And you can be sure that there will be pictures to follow! But it will be after the wedding in September. We will also be putting the little boys together in the same bedroom and making a MUCH needed office! Our poor bedroom is the "catch all" for anything anyone doesn't know what to do with! We are being over run with mail and papers and magazines...we HAVE to do something about it. What we need is a bigger house but we will make the best out of what we have!

So I am sorry that this post has nothing to do with anything primitive. But I will be back I promise! I hope that you will stick with me....and again, for those of you that contacted me...thank you! I promise Prim goodness in the months to come!! So stay tuned!

And please don't forget to stop by A Primitive Place! It is growing by leaps and bounds! It's a wonderful place for Prim eye candy.... inspiration and ideas! Come will be glad you did!

Take care everyone...until next time (which I promise won't be so long)!
