Where are you?

I don't know but if you find me, can you tell me that I am looking for myself?

Life has gotten away with me .... between the kittens (still adorable and so full of mischief); helping to plan a baby shower (custom designed invitations .... lots of work but they came out GREAT!), trying to keep up with my workouts and working 40 hours a week, I seem to have lost touch with my blog.

Things are good, if not a bit hectic.

• My longest workout has been a 5 mile run/walk with a few 3 miler in between for good measure. I started a Power Yoga/Pilates class once a week, this past Saturday, that left my abs so sore that I found muscles I didn't know I had! Sunshine has been on bike vacation this week and will return to the regular schedule next week....

• Did you know that sugar ants (the tiny little black ones) *LOVE* Iam's Kitten food? We are working on a solution to this problem...We want to feed the cats, not the ants...

• I may have some cool "LiveSTRONG" news to share ... I need to confirm my October calander first....In the meantime, I have pass the $2000.00 raised!! Only $3000.00 to goal!!

• My weight is going NO WHERE fast **WAAAAHHH** so I am attempting to buckle down and shake things up ALOT! I want to wear my cool RED retro pants this fall ...

• A king size bed is *NOT BIG ENOUGH* for two adults and two rambuncious kittens who play, then PURRRR, then wrestle and then walk all over you, making little "happy" MOW sounds.....It's a good think they are so darn cute!

• My 4 month DERM appointment came and went without much trouble. Dr. Peck took a picture of one mole that seems left over from a previous doctor's removal and we are going to *watch* it. Sometimes Moles grow back (who knew??) but not very often so if this mole has grown when I go back in November, we'll slice it off again. I'm not too concerned since this same mole was benign the first time they took it off.

• I am not on any meds of any kind and have been *med-free* for 6 weeks now! I think my body is still in shock at having to do everything itself! :)

In general, life is crazy ...I'll try to be more consistant over the next few days. Until then, I wish you all the best and hope you are Living STRONG!

Glad you are doing good Holly. I was wondering how things were going.

Keep up your training and give those kitties a squeeze for me!

I hope you find yourself soon. Maybe you should schedule an appointment. :)

Thanks for the update!

I asked my girl Catherine what cats say and she said, "Mouse! Mouse! Mouse!"

Ant tips? Um, obviously I'm losing the war, but what I've done that's worked is put EVERYTHING in airtight containers. EVERYTHING. Plus sprayed the baseboards with ant poison (I don't like it on any surfaces the girls actually touch very frequently, like the floor). The little plastic ant traps don't seem to do much, but we've got them and replace them every month or two. Plus if you know where they come in outside, spray the foundation in that area with heavy-duty garden ant killer.

That's everything I know of, short of calling an exterminator.

Oh, yeah, we have ant stakes in the garden too. The ants seem to use them to climb over.
