Slacker Jack

So my fitness took a HUGE hit when husband was gone at flight school last month. While I did good on the eating front, I just never seemed to have time to squeeze a workout in. There was just always something to be done. But now that husband is home, I NEED to get back on track. I need to start doing 30 Day Shred during nap time again. And I need to get my butt up before work to workout on the days husband is home.

So, today was day 1, and I got my lazy butt up at 6am and hopped on my spinning bike today. It was hard but it feels really good. I am one of those people who actually really enjoy working out. Eating healthy? Hate it. But working out I love. So it was nice to get back to it and much needed.

I had my doctor's appointment last Friday for that annoying pinched nerve feeling in my butt that I've had since March. I was quite discouraged when he basically said I probably pulled something and there wasn't anything I could do about it. It could take 3, 6 or even 12 months to heal. It just depends. Well, sure glad I paid a $30 co-pay and waited a month to see a specialist just to hear that news. I probably could have diagnosed that myself... thanks man. I also had him check out my elbow, even though I had already seen the doctor for that. He also said it was "Tennis Elbow" and gave me another set of exercises I could do to try and strengthen it. But again, not much I can do about it. He did give me another cortisone shot, which hurt like all holy hell. The last one I got hurt a little but this felt like I got shot in the arm. For 2-3 days afterwards I could barely bend my arm... sheesh! It's just now starting to feel better.

Our new nanny starts on Monday. She is coming over tomorrow, so I can show her where everything is. I made up a sort of 'hand book' that she can refer to when it comes to everything. I'm excited for this, but also nervous. I really hope this works out. The kids last day at daycare is today. I'm happy to have them out of there. Just yesterday we got a notice that there was a case of Pink Eye in S's room. This is another reason why I'm happy we are out of there... all of the illnesses.

I'm SUPER excited that I get to go visit A in Atlanta next week. My sister and I are both going, though we are on different flights (hers out of Detroit, mine out of Grand Rapids). But it's going to be a super fun weekend and I cannot wait! AND I get to have 3 full nights of sleep, without having to listen for any children.

Ok, have to get back to work!

I Promise, I'm Alive

I've been neglecting you the past week, dear blog. I'm so very sorry, I just can't seem to catch up on life, since husband came home. It's been SUCH a whirl wind. And to top it off, S had her tubes put in this morning, so yet another day off of work to take her to the hospital.

But the tube procedure went GREAT! We were up all night last night with S, and just as I suspected, she had the start of another ear infection. So this is a good thing we did this today. She was a rock star throughout the entire process. Except for when they had to take her away to give her the anesthesia. She was screaming for me as they carried her away down the hall. I, of course, started crying. There's nothing more heart breaking as a parent, to see your child scream for you and for you not to be able to go hold her. But we were back home by 9:30am and she's been playing ever since.

This weekend was really fun. Saturday we drove down to the Detroit area for a bbq with my parents and sister and her new house. It was really fun. My parents brought their bounce house and the kids had a blast.

Last night we had friends over for our own bbq. The kids swam, played, blew bubbles and had fun together. The adults got to drink beer... so all is good. After dinner, we gave the kids ice cream out on our deck and S thought it would be hilarious to smoosh her face up against the door... and it kinda was.

Ok, I'm at work tomorrow and will be back to a more normal blogging schedule now. Thanks for your patience!


Thursday, May 24, 2012


Please excuse my absence this week. It has been CRAZY!!! First off I had just gotten to work on Tuesday and daycare called me to tell me S had a 101 fever and I had to come get her. So I trekked 40 minutes back home to pick her up. Talk about a waste of time and gas. It was a rough day because I had A LOT of work to do, freelance wise. I had a conference call set up for 2pm that I HAD to be on, so it was a tricky day to juggle that and S.

Then I hired the nanny. Whooooo! I'm very excited, but a bit overwhelmed of having to basically write a 'handbook' of sorts explaining the in's and out's of my kids schedules, meals, naps, etc. It's a lot to think about.

And then yesterday morning S and I had to get up bright and early and drive to pick J up. My mother-in-law met me at the halfway point. J was VERY mad at me and wouldn't even hug me. He does this often when I leave... he makes me pay. So he was pretty much a little sh*t for the remainder of the day. I was ready to drive his butt back to grandma's after a while...

I had another conference call I had to be on at 1pm, so I was just able to get the kids down for naps in time for that. And then husband came home. Can I get another Whooooooooooooo!  We picked him up at 4pm, the kids were ecstatic. I love how husband goes away for a month and J is just fine with him. I leave him at his grandma's for 2 days and he won't even look at me. WTF?

So anyway, I'm back at work right now, incredibly behind so I will keep this short and sweet. I finally have my doctor's appointment tomorrow for that pinched nerve in my butt. I'm hoping to resolve this so I can start running again soon.


PS: husband said I looked "skinny" when he saw me. YEAH!

And Then There Were 2

Only a few days left until husband comes home. I cannot believe I made it! Whooooo! He may even be able to come home a day early. He was originally supposed to come home on Thursday, but if he can get his flight switched, he'll be home Wednesday. Only 2 days away!

Had a good weekend up north, at my in-laws. It was sooooooooo nice to see S. I missed her very much and I was happy to have us all back together again (minus husband, of course). We spent Friday fishing and playing on their big deck (they live on a lake) with buckets of water. We went for a wagon ride, S even tried to pull J on it, which was pretty funny.

We headed home on Saturday and again, it was nice to have us all home together. Sunday we had an engagement party to go to. Unfortunately it was 90 degrees here and the house the party was in did not have air conditioning. I seriously wanted to die it was so hot. My kids were sooooo crabby and hot too. It was NOT fun! When we got home in the late afternoon, I threw the kids bathing suits on them and filled up our kiddie pool. They were so happy playing around in the pool. It was really fun because S was too little to do this last year with us and it was nice to see her and J play together.

Around dinner time, my mother-in-law showed up and took J home with her. He did NOT want to go. He's a mamma's boy and pretty much likes to be at my side 24/7. I know once they got on their way, he was fine. But that mommy guilt you feel when your child doesn't want to go somewhere, is not fun. I'm going to get him Wednesday morning, so he's only up there for 2 days.

Thank you for all the nanny advice. I'm gave the potential nanny a day rate and I'm waiting to hear back from her on it. She has been J's teacher for the past 8 months, so if this works out it will be really great. Hopefully I will hear from her today and we can get this officially set up for the summer.

Happy Monday!

Keeping It Up

Happy Monday my webfriends!  The challenge with any good work-out/diet is keeping it up for the long haul.  I did great last week and as a result I feel good.  I worked out almost every day including Saturday and Sunday.  A big time first for me in a while.  Zumba plans tonight and to stay motivated I am already dressed to go....@ 6p. I need to keep motivated and updating here is helping me a lot.  I am traveling this week so its important that I stay on the right track - here's to healthy a week again, cheers!

Saturday Success

Well, I got up this morning and ran again - I didn't drink wine last night (though I ate an entire burrito @ Willy's - like Moe's) and I ran for 20 straight minutes and walked for another 10 - OK, you can stop laughing now, please see "square 1" reference - this is really good for me!  I worked out 4x this week and am feeling really proud of myself.  Thank you again for the comment "remember how badly square 1 sucks" to keep myself going - that is helping a lot.  I honestly could have kept running for another 10 (I think) but I didn't want to push it and think I have to keep at that pace until I'm really ready to be there.  So, in other words, now I know I can run for a straight 20 and keep going strong and it shouldn't be an issue going forward.  Weird psychological games I have to play to keep it up, whatever works.
Hopefully this will be me soon:
V- tick-tock goes the husband arrival clock, getting close - hang in there buddy!
Have a GREAT weekend webfriends!

Feeling Good!

Wow - how nice for a change!  Each day this week E and I have eaten healthy and I've worked out every single day - a RECORD for me.  I weighed myself this am and am down 7lbs since before my craziness of a few weeks.  The world of bloat and ick that's been hanging around is kinda gone....kinda.  My goal is 4lbs away - PLEASE G-D PLEASE let me keep up the good work, this is about the time that I start to get comfortable and I cannot do it this time.  Gotta be good!

Nanny Question

Ok web friends, I need some help and advice. I have found a nanny that is willing to work with our crazy schedule and watch my kids. The craziness is that because of husband's pilot schedule, some weeks it's only 3 days, some weeks 2 days and some only 1. But I am allowing this nanny to bring her 2-year-old daughter with her. So she would be watching my 1 and 3-year-old's and also her 2-year-old. She has been J's teacher at daycare for about 8 months now (up until last week), so he knows her, as do I. Her daughter was in S's class, so she also knows her.

So this leads to my question. For her hourly rate, do I get to pay her less because she is bringing her daughter with her? Her daughter's needs will most certainly be taking up some of her time, being that she's only 2. But I am having the convenience of having someone come to my house.

Thoughts? I am clueless on this whole nanny thing.


So Long Debbie!

So since I've been Debbie Downer this week, I thought I would write down a list of all the positives I've had going on this week:

  • Spending one-on-one time with J all week.

  • Having had the most awesome day off yesterday with my little guy. We went shopping, out to lunch, the park, everywhere.

  • J got a free ice cream with M&M's on it at lunch at Culver's yesterday... man was he excited!

  • Only 1 week from today, until husband comes home.

  • I get to see my little girl today.

  • I think I found a nanny to watch my kids for the summer (I'm so over my daycare facility).

  • Found some super cute summer dresses to keep me cool when it's 8 billion degrees out and I'm schlepping my kids around.

  • Completed everything on my 'To Do' list yesterday. Every... last... one.

  • J's new Yo Gabba Gabba Nap Matt I ordered for him to use at school, came in the mail. He was VERY happy.

  • Snuggle time in my bed with J last night before bedtime

So there you go! Some great positives about this week. I did have an email talk with husband about my hurt feelings. And I do feel a lot better for having gotten it off my chest. After work today, I'm going to pick J up from school and then we are heading straight up north to Grandma's house to get my darling S. We will stay there until Saturday morning and then head home.

Happy Thursday!

Day 2. I Did It!

Hello Web Friends!  Well, I did it.  Day 2 and I got up and ran at 6:30a...and it SUCKEDDD while I was doing it but boy do I feel better for having done it.  Tomorrow I will try and do the same thing, fingers crossed I can keep up the trend.  And, being totally honest - the comment about thinking about how badly Square 1 sucks will help me tomorrow morning, thanks for that!
Life is good on this side otherwise, we had a FANTASTIC time up in MI and I saw V post a pic one time so I am going to too. This is from my mom's house and B and I relaxing in the "da-kuzzi" as he called it. Thinking back now, is it even safe for a toddler to be in one? Lord I hope so.
We ate like TOTAL pigs and he puked 4x in the rental car on the way back to the airport, 3.5hrs in the car with that - not cool.  But, whatevs - we get through.  I even told the people that I filled the car up with gas and I didn't - E is going to be SO MAD at me when they charge our card. I JUST COULDN'T do it - mad exhausted and I needed to roll.
I've been good this week eating wise, we've cooked healthy meals and I've worked out 2x.  This is BIG for me in the trend of bad eating and fatness that has become my normal.  Such is life and again, we all need to start somewhere - and here I am, heading into day 3 tomorrow.  I will cook healthy again tonight and resist the urge to say, I've been good this week - PIZZA tonight.  I wont do it, even though I want to.
Later Webbies!

Square 1, We Are NOT Friends...

Well hello web friends, A here.  I have been on the road non stop and its been not only hard to be gone from my family but staying on top of anything out side of work has been near impossible!  And yes, sadly that includes my eating/working out/ and overall health in general.
My clothes are skin tight, need I say more?  I had a mental shift this morning and actually ran.  It was a slow, arduous and painful experience but I did it and I forgot how badly Square 1 SUCKS.
So I'm back at it and already feel better for the slight modification to my morning.  I will need to find a new app or something to start tracking because I think I'm bored of and need something exciting to keep me motivated.
Side note, my time @ home and with V last week ROCKED!  Miss you already V but cannot wait for you to get here soon! 

Life with One Child

It is very strange to only have one child. I'm loving it and hating it all at once. I'm loving the one-on-one time with J. I'm loving the freedom I have because J is much more chill than S (there's such a big difference between 3 years old and 1 years old at this age). He'll just hang out and I can actually get stuff done. S pretty much wants me to be with her, either holding her, or her sitting in my lap 24/7. So basically I get nothing done when she's around. But I also miss my girl. I miss her hugs and snuggles. And J misses her too. When I picked him up at school yesterday he was  like "ok, let's go get S!" I had to remind him that she was at grandma's and he was not happy.

But we had a lovely night again, just the two of us. Dinner and then again we laid in my big bed and watched Fresh Beat Band (his new fav. show) until his bedtime. It was nice to snuggle with him. Part of me feels bad for ever complaining how hard it was when I only had one child. Hell, this is a breeze compared to 2!

Husband called around 9:30pm last night and I was kind of pissy with him. I NEED to get over this Mother's Day thing. But it was like rubbing salt in my wounds yesterday. ALL DAY LONG at work I had about 5 billion people come up to me asking me "how was your Mother's Day? What did you get? What did your husband get you?" Really? And how awkward everyone felt when I said I got nothing... ha ha. So it was still raw when he called. And I know you are just thinking, well tell him you feel this way. But I've had so many similar conversations with husband about just this topic, what else is there to say? I need to just get over this and accept the fact that he sucks at holidays and I will never get anything. As one of my commenters, Kate said, I need to buy myself flowers or a gift if it means so much to me. So I think I just will from now on, good advice.

Ok, no more pity party for me. I promise I will end this party now and be resentful move on.

I'm up to my eyeballs in freelance work right now and between that and my actual job work, I'm pretty busy trying to get it all done. But freelance is good, it's more money, so I need too keep it up.

Welcome to my Pity Party

So Mother's Day kind of sucked. I mean, it's not like I thought that it was going to be this grand day with all these presents lavished on me. My husband is out of town for a month... I get it. But I still thought it would be better than what is was. When you have a 1 and 3 year old, it's not like they know it's Mother's Day. I can't expect them to make me a card or anything. They can't say "hey mom, happy mother's day!" And husband was gone, so it's not like I was going to get breakfast in bed or anything. But, going on facebook and seeing all the photos of all my friends with their new jewelry, flowers, gifts, brunches, etc., was hard. I didn't think I'd feel jealousy like that, but I did. So then I started to have a pity part for myself. I was pretty down. And as much as I know husband wasn't in town, I just feel like he could have least sent me flowers or a card. I mean even just a crappy homemade card would have been nice. He called to say Happy Mother's Day, but that was it. And especially with me being all by myself, it would have been nice to have something...

I love my husband, but he just sucks at holidays, birthdays, etc. He always has and I still get disappointed for some reason. Even though I know this about him. But again, I guess I just thought that since he was gone, he'd do something nice for me. And I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit pissed. I think it was kinda shitty, to be honest. But there's not much else I can do but move on.

On a positive note, I did go to my sister-in-law's for a bbq yesterday. My in-laws were there also, so that was fun. And I did get a homemade card from my niece, so that was nice. At least someone thought of me... lol.

My in-laws took S home with them. She will be there until Thursday. That also sort of set me off in a bit of depression. As much as it was my idea to send her off, I was just so down yesterday, it just added to it. I miss her like crazy! But it was nice to have some one-on-one time with J. We played on the swings, did play-doh on the deck. We can never do play-doh anymore because S is always eating it and throwing it. So that was nice. We watched Bubble Guppies in my bed after his bath, which was also nice. Another thing we can't really do with S because she's a bit of a spaz and won't sit still. My bed is really, really tall, and I'm always afraid she's going to fall off of it.

So here's to a better day. My feelings are still hurt and I'm missing my girl, but I'm going to make the best of this. Only a week and a half until husband comes home and then I get to go to Atlanta and see A for her birthday/housewarming party. Whoo!

What Moms REALLY Want for Mother's Day

I got this from Rants From Mommyland and had to share it. It's SO funny and SOOOOO true:

Happy Mother's Days!


Thursday, May 10, 2012

Things I Thought I Would Never Do As A Parent...

  • Let my children watch as much tv as I do. But hey, sometimes I NEED to get something done and as much as I've tried using other things to entertain them, tv works the best.  So suck it judgers!

  • Be so out of tune on what music is popular today. I couldn't tell you one top 10 song right now. Complete lie, I totally know that One Direction song 'What Makes You Beautiful.'

  • Know every word to every Wiggles song ever made.

  • Give my kids food while grocery shopping, just to keep them occupied so I can shop in peace.

  • Keep a box of fruit snacks in my car for emergencies. Especially falling asleep when I don't want them to, type of emergencies (quick car naps are the kiss of death for your child's intended, long afternoon nap).

  • Have only children music cd's in my car. I have not one of my own in my car currently (unless you count books on tape).

  • Bribe my children. We started bribing J with M&M's if he would go #2 on the potty. And now I can't get it to stop. I swear he will be 15 years old and asking me for M&M's after he poops.

  • Say the phrases my parents said to me as a child. Especially the "you are driving me crazy!" line. Sorry mom and dad, I bet I did drive you crazy.

  • Serve my children chicken nuggets for breakfast dinner.

  • Spend hours upon hours planning my kids birthday parties and stress over details that no one will ever notice, much less appreciate.

  • Do just about ANYTHING to get my child back to sleep, once they wake up in the middle of the night. Including crawling out of their room on my hands and knees, just so they won't hear my ankle creak and notice that I'm leaving.

  • Judge other people a lot less. Before I had kids I was Mrs. Judgment on everyone who had kids. I thought, I would NEVER let my kids do that. Or I would NEVER let them act that way... HA! Joke's on me now. But I've got to say, when I hear that kid screaming at the grocery store, or throwing food on the floor at a restaurant, I don't judge. I get it's all about survival at that point and I usually give the mother an encouraging smile.

Side note: Doctor said for sure on the tubes for S. So May 29th is surgery day for her.

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

To Tube or not to Tube... that is the Question

So I am taking S to the Ears Nose and Throat doctor today. I'm assuming they will check her ears out and give us our options. More than likely I think they will want us to get tubes. But we'll see I guess. Part of me wants her to get the tubes because she's just had sooooo many ear infections. And being on antibiotics nonstop can't be very good for her. But there's also the opinion, because it's Spring and Summer, and cold and flu season are coming to an end, to wait for the Fall and see where we are at. I just want to do the right thing for her, I just wish I knew what that was.

Anyway, I'm getting excited for A's visit tomorrow. It will be quick, but fun! I'm sure the boys will have a blast together.

My mother-in-law comes in on Friday. She'll be busy at a Mary Kay event that day, but after that she will be around to help me. On Saturday there is a carnival at my niece's elementary school, so I know she said she would take both kids and give me a break. So that will be nice. I will take some of that time and get a good workout in. I haven't been able to workout once since husband has been gone. I usually workout when the kids nap, but with all the extra added things I've got to do with husband being gone, I just haven't had that time. I pretty much get all of that stuff done while they are asleep. So I am looking forward to a nice long workout.

Sunday, my mother-in-law is taking S home with her. I'm already getting sad about it. I'm going to miss my girl. It will be very nice to only have one child for a few days, but at the same time I want to be with her. I'll be zooming up there after work on Thursday, to go get her for sure.

Eating wise, I've been doing well. No real huge slip-ups yet. I did have a slice of pizza on Sunday, but it was just plain cheese. Normally I'd eat the whole darn pizza, so only have a little bit is good for me.I didn't even get any popcorn at the Hunger Games on Sunday. Now THAT was hard! I'm almost to the halfway point until husband comes home, so slowly but surely we'll get there.

Thank God For Boring Photoshop Projects...

Ok, so this show in my newest obsession. I've been working on this totally long and boring Photoshop project at work the past few weeks, so I play the episodes in the background while I'm working on it. I LOVE it and I can't stop watching it.. I'm almost caught up to the current episode.

Ok, just had share... back to Photoshop and Revenge...

Later Week 1!

Happy Monday all! I survived my first husband-less weekend with the kiddos. And it actually wasn't half bad.. ha ha. Except for a little snafu on Saturday night, we had a fun weekend. For some odd reason S was up from 11pm-3am on Saturday night. MAN I had forgotten what that kind of sleep deprevation feels like. I'm still a zombie today from it.

But other than that we survived. Saturday, before dinner at a friend's house, I took the kids to the Rogue River Dam in Rockford, since every time we pass it the kids ask me to stop there and we are always in a hurry so we can't. It's a very cool place and they had a wedding and tons of prom kids there taking pictures, which was fun to watch. The kids loved it! J sat there and threw sticks in the water the whole time. He would have done that all day if I had let him.

After that, we had dinner at my friend's house. She's also has 2 children, J & S's ages, so they ran around like crazy and I got to chill for a bit. If it weren't for S being up all night, it would have been the perfect day.

Sunday, my sister and niece came up for the day/night. We had a babysitter watch the kids in the afternoon and we went and saw The Hunger Games. AWESOME movie!!! Loved it and can't wait to start the 2nd book.

Again, the kids ran around like crazy all day with their cousin. They were exhausted last night, and everyone slept. My poor niece had her pack and play set up in the bathroom, since that was the only room left for her... ha ha. But she didn't seem to mind.

So here starts week 2 of husband being gone. One week down, 2-1/2 more to go! The good news is not only does A come in on Thursday night for a visit (yay!) but my mother-in-law comes in on Friday to help me. So if I can just make it to Thursday, I'll have help the rest of the time husband is gone.

Good Thing I Don't Have A Fear Of Needles

Man the last 2 days have been insane, crazy busy! I'm used to husband being gone but since I know it's going to be more than just a few days like normal, there is ALOT more to be done around the house and such. Yesterday flewwwwwwwwwww by, hence no blog post from me. I didn't even get a chance to work out when the kids napped I was so darned busy.

But so far so good with husband being gone. And my elbow and tooth are feeling GREAT! Before my root canal appointment on Tuesday afternoon, I stopped into my doctor's office and had a quick xray of my elbow done, just to make sure I hadn't pulled anything major. It was to the point where my elbow hurt so bad I couldn't even pick up S with my right arm. Anyway as I figured it was, I have what's known as "Tennis Elbow." A very annoying inflammation of the tendon that attaches to your elbow. Most common in tennis players, hense the name. Anyway since my elbow had gotten so bad, he gave me a cortizone shot right in my elbow. It hurt but I would have done anything at that point to get this pain to stop, so I sucked it up. Other than that, he gave me some exercises I can do to strengthen that area, but not much more I can do. So let's hope between the shot and these exercises I can start lifting weights and doing pushups again. Need my Jennifer Aniston arms for the summer!

Then after that lovely appointment, I headed off to my root canal. What a FUN afternoon for me right??? Cortisone shot in my elbow AND a root canal... ahhhh, it's a glamorous life people, try not to be too jealous, k?

My mouth is still sore today, but it's slowly getting better. And I'm able to finally chew on my right side again, which let me tell you, is Heaven after not having been able to for a couple of weeks now.

Yesterday was a fun "mommy" day. We made it to playgroup in the morning and I got to catch up with some friends I hadn't seen in a while. During the kids naps I literally ran around like a crazy woman, because I had so much to do. Dishes, laundry, garbage duty, etc. Our neighborhood's annual garage sale is this weekend and even though we have SO much baby stuff to get rid of, there was just no way to do a garage sale by myself with 2 kids. But since my neighbor rocks, she said I could put some items in her driveway and she'd take care of it for me. So I dragged my stroller, exersaucer, carseat and base, swing and jumperoo thingy, 4 houses down to her house. I was literally dripping with sweat by the time I got done. But am SO happy to have that out of my house. Hopefully I get a some good prices for it.

Also, S's teacher at school is pregnant and her boyfriend left her. Sad story and she's such a sweet girl. So I went in my basement and pulled together 3 boxes of baby clothes, toys, etc. for her. I can't even imagine being in that situation, so I'm glad I could not only help her but clear out more of our old baby stuff.

Then after the kids were up I took them to this new playhouse they just built in Grand Rapids, called Jester's Court. HOLY CRAP this place is awesome! If you live around here, I highly suggest you check it out. It's basically like a bounce house and Java Gym/Jungle type place, all combined into one. I got a great LivingSocial 2 for 1 deal too. We had soooo much fun. And yet again, sweated my butt off from all the climbing and jumping. So while I didn't get a traditional workout in, let me tell you, I did some major calorie burning yesterday.

So anyway, even with all my crazy doctor's appointments and so many pokes from needles, I can't even count, it's been going very well so far with husband gone, except for BOTH cats puking on my carpet this morning.

Eating is also going well. I love when I'm crazy busy like this because I seriously don't even have time to eat, much less over eat.

Happy Thursday!

Calorie Count - Here I Come Again

I swear when I logged in I heard the people @ Calorie Count laughing at me.  Bastards.  Oh well, I am eating really well today (and yesterday too, but today I started logging) and even got out to walk Crozzie!  Happiness.  130, I will not be seeing you for long (at least that's the goal).
I just read your post V and OMG we are seeing each other for the next 2 months - my heart rate went through the roof I'm so happy!  YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
We even get to have wine together since neither of us is preggers - life does not suck.
OK, that's it for now - A OUT.
Be skinny for me webfriends, since apparently I cannot!

Just Sayin'...

Just realized that my zipper has been down all day... at work... doesn't get classier than that people!


Ignore My Lisssssssssssssp

So day 1 of healthy eating went well. I was surprisingly not that hungry. I easily stayed under my calories for the day, and almost stayed under my carbs. I don't follow the carb thing too closely, my trainer had suggested I try and stay under 40 grams a day. But that's pretty hard to do, so I try to stay between 40 & 60 if I can.

Talked to husband last night and his first day at flight school went well. He was in a classroom for 8 hours (UGH!) and was a bit wary of having to do this for 24 more days. I think they get Sunday's off, so to be in a classroom, 6 days a week, 8 hours a day, sounds a bit depressing to me. I so could never be a pilot.

I've got my sister coming on Sunday with her daughter to spend the night. We are going to get a sitter to watch the kids for a bit and go see Hunger Games. I just finished the book last week. LOVED it! So I'm excited to see the movie.

And then A and her son come in on Thursday! Whooooo! I'm very excited to see her. Plus I just booked my ticket to Atlanta for June to come out for her housewarming/birthday party on June 9th. I haven't been to Atlanta for ages, so I'm very excited to go out there and see her new house. I can't remember the last time A and I got to see each other 2 months in a row.

I have 2 appointments today. One for my root canal and one for my elbow. I'm very happy for both actually. The pain in my tooth and elbow is constant and I'm looking forward for the pain to stop. I'm going to assume I'll be getting one of those lovely and painful cortizone shots in my elbow. But hey, whatever works. So I'm only working a half day today and then I'm off and running while the kids are in daycare. I'm sure when I pick them up I'll be lisping like crazy, due to my numb mouth.

Happy Tuesday all!
