Tales of a Georgia Peach!

I had microdermabrasion done today. It was unlike anything that I have ever done before. I don't know anything to compare it to to even describe. It did not hurt. My skin feels great. The little blackheads that were always around my nose are now gone. I go on Monday for my second laser hair removal treatment. I have an appointment for a chemical peel in 3 weeks.
I am doing things for me. I feel like for so long I've done everything for everyone else. Now its time to pamper me and do the things that I want to do. I have started excercising everyday. So far I've lost 8 pounds. I feel a little more toned. I'm getting excited about Jamaica, that is my big motivation. I just hope that I keep it up. It will be easier for me to since I will be home everyday starting next week. Of course I'll be working but I will be coming home everyday, unlike before.

Tonight my baby graduates from 7th grade. She will be going off to that big ol high school this fall. I worry so much about her. She's a great kid and she has a good head on her shoulders. I just wish that I could protect her from everything. I know that it is hard being a child, but it is just as hard being a parent. Parents have a little more wisdom and knowledge about things but you can't just make the children understand that. You have to let them make their own mistakes and pray that they learn from them, and that they have enough courage to know when to ask for help when they need it. And that they have enough courage to go out and make the mistakes that teach them about life and growing up. It's so funny when you have a baby you want to do everything that you can to protect them and give them everything. But then they grow up and they don't want you to be around them and the more that you want to be there the more that they don't want you to. They grow up and have there own life and you feel like you're just left there, but you still have your life too. You just have to keep praying that you will find that closeness that you once had. Just keep believing in each other and loving each other. Just be there for each other.

I'm back home for a few days and then I'll be back to work again. I only have three weeks left and then I'll be home all summer. I'm excited about being home, but I really love my job.
I've been so very busy since my last post. I've worked tons of overtime, they really needed the help and the money is great. I treated myself to some long awaited laser hair removal. I had my first treatment and I have three more to do. I unfortunately was born very hairy and have always been so embarrassed by it. I have to wax every week. Hopefully those days are over.

Tonight my husband and I met after work and had dinner and did some shopping at Lowe's. I bought a cast iron chimnea. I love to sit outside in the evenings but I get so cold that I end up coming in early, now I can stay warm and enjoy the outdoors. I'll post some pictures later. I still have pictures from the DC trip to post. When I'm at work I don't have email access, so I go for a week at time without.

Tomorrow I plan on getting my garden ready for planting. It's been a little cool this past week so I'm glad that I haven't gotten anything planted yet.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
