Home Alone

So today Bob started back to work.  I did not realize how quiet the house would seem with him not here.  Not that it is noisy when he is here by any means, but I am sure most of you understand what I mean by the "quiet."  Bob was given a company vehicle with the last employer he was with.  Of course when he was let go, we had to "let go" of the vehicle, so we have had only our Equinox over the last 10 1/2 months.  This weekend Bob commented to me, "Starting Monday you get your castle back." My response was, "Yeah, but my chariot won't be here!"  Eventually he will get a vehicle and I will have my car back again.  I have gone 2 years before without a car during the day so I know I can handle this!  We are so thankful and feel so blessed that he has been given this opportunity with TEPA.  I know Bob was very excited this morning when he left for Aliso Viejo.  We did not find out until 10:00 last night he would need to drive up there today, but we know he will not have to make that 1 1/2 hour drive (each way) everyday.  It feels so good knowing that we will eventually be back into a routine again and we will continue to take nothing for granted!
Even though our 10 week challenge has ended, I have posted on my blog that I will continue on my own.  Yesterday after church, Bob and I went for our walk on the trail.  I did not eat anything after 7pm...(I made sure I had just a little bit of my Thrifty chocolate chip ice cream at 6:35).  I had been in bed last night for only a minute or two when I said out loud, "aagghh...I didn't do crunches today!"  I hopped out of bed and hit the floor to do my crunches.  (I am doing the crunches this morning so there will not be a repeat of last night.)
It is going to be a great week!!  I can feel it!
UPDATE:  This week Bob will work from home Tues, Wed, & Thur.  He will drive up to Aliso Viejo again  on Friday.

You and Bob are both amazing people. You've set such great examples for your friends and family. Your success on this challenge has encouraged me to give it a try. Get up your good work, we'll all be watching and learning.
