Life is short...live it up!

Update on my Aunt Dianne.  They found a tumor in her brain and she had brain surgery to remove it.  She is doing...alright.  They're thinking about moving her to a nursing home.  It's been really hard for my uncle and her two girls (and my family too).  So please keep my family in your prayers!

Rereading through my last post, I read about wanting to find passions and joy and I think I've done a good job of embracing life this week.  On Monday I watched The Bachelorette with friends.  On Tuesday, I played tennis with a girlfriend from church.  On Wednesday I went out to dinner with some co-workers.  Last night I got up my nerve and played pick up soccer with some guys I had never met!  I was the only girl there, and one of three Caucasians!  It was pouring rain and I was NOT very good (although I did get one assist, so that was exciting!).  It had been TWELVE years since I'd played soccer.  My goodness that was a long time (since freshman year of high school...man do I feel old!).  But anyway, I had fun.  And today I am sooorrrre!  But a good sore.  Today I was invited to hang out with some other co-workers, and then tomorrow a bunch of co-workers are going to one of the girl's houses in South Bend.  Should be fun!  I'm making friends at work - yay!  Haha.

Last weekend I went to the dog park with my friend Mike and his two dogs.  I met a guy there, and we hit it off.  We went on a date.  Unfortunately, it's not gonna turn into anything - but I had fun nonetheless.  We grabbed drinks at The Buck.  And then Saturday, I went to a baby shower for my friend Sharlee in Grand Rapids area.  It was good to see the whole Coffman family.  They are like my family, so that was nice.  And then Saturday night I went out with some friends from high school.  We met a guy on the bluff and invited him to drinks with us at Silver Beach Pizza.  He is the one who told me about the pick up soccer on Tuesdays & Thursdays.  Then Sunday I had another baby shower - this time for a friend from high school (we were in the same small group from middle school until high school!).  It was good to see a bunch of my old high school friends again.  :)

Weight Watchers has been going alright.  I gained like 0.8 pounds this past week - probably from drinking and the two baby showers.  But that's not terrible.  I'm hoping for a loss this week - but we shall see.  I've stuck to it pretty well this week, so that's good.

Well, I can't think of anything else that's new.  Just livin' and lovin' life!  Hope all is well with you.  Sending my love!
