Hello. Its Christmas eve. I've been so busy with company and shopping that I haven't had time to post my Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Will do so as soon as the company is gone. Just wanted to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone!
I'm getting really excited, nervous, you name it... Doug is coming home tomorrow and it has been 17 days since we've seen him. Its been really hard. Thankfully I've been busy with dayhome and my dad came yesterday and he's keeping me company. Almost got everything ready for the company. Have to clean Austin's room and change the bed, make some tarts, chilli for dinner, an apple crisp. And maybe even some chocolate chip cookies and skor bar. MMMMMMMMMM.....so stay tuned tomorrow for YUMMY recipes and Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays. I might even post more then one recipe. MMMMmmmm.... I can't wait. Love baking and love eating it afterward I think the most... he he....SO BAD FOR THE DIET!.... Until tomorrow. Enjoy the season and have a great night!
2 sleeps until my dad comes. I'm very much looking forward to having Christmas with him. Its been WAY too long. Probably the last Christmas I've spend with my dad was back in 1995! WAY TOO LONG!
Well today is better then yesterday. I guess... I still feel exhausted, even after 8 hours of sleep. I still fell overwhelmed with day to day things. I want someone else to do them for a change. But this morning I got up and go on the scale and I'm down 1lb. So thats a plus. Just have to keep at it. Only 40-50 lbs to go! Depending what size I am at 150lbs. Last time I was that small I was a size 11/12 so we'll see. Well I'm off to put children down for naps and then onto the treadmill. A few jokes for the day!
I'm with children 24/7. Either mine or someone else's. My boyfriend is gone for 14-20 days out of a month and when he is home we have 'family' time. I try to get away even if its just to the grocery store at least once when he is home, but thats not what I want. I want to be able to lay in bed on a Saturday or Sunday and sleep in. I want to be able to read a book in the middle of the day without constant interruption. I want ONE, just one, day a week to myself. Hell I'd take a few hours that I could leave the house or lay on the couch without interruption(and I'm not talking about after Austin is in bed, cause I can't run up to the store or do anything) To be able to go to the bathroom without having someone follow me down the hall and ask what I'm doing. I want to be able to go crawl in to bed at 5pm if I'm not feeling well. I want to be able to clean the kitchen and NOT turn around two minutes later to find my clean counter has been used as a dumping ground for my son's toys, crafts, and shit. I don't want to feel like I'm a maid first, mom/friend/girlfriend last.
I don't know what to do anymore. I fell lost, confused, and overwhelmed with life.

Hello everyone. My friend and I have started a new blog about arts, crafts, and general fun decorating. We are currently doing the countdown to Christmas and a blog giveaway. The more followers the more fun. Come check us out. Sweet Maple Creations.
Going on a carribean cruise in Feb. I can't wait. And after we get to spend 2 days in Miami. I have approx 3 months to continue to lose weight. I could easily lose another 30lbs. I need to keep on it tho. I'd be happy with another 15-20. its a constant battle and I need to keep on it.
ok so it's been super long and i'm not even going to use the shift key or upper case letters. its late and i just want to say hi and let everyone know how things are going.
Well today was uneventful. All I did was mow the lawn. It turned out that it was trying to storm. Didn't amount to anything as usual. So I took some pics. Nothing spectacular but it'll work...
The weird clouds from the storm
Ok so I took alot of pictures this day and just picked the few I liked the best. So here they are! A pinecone. Thought it looked neat in the grass. Not like everyone has walked over them a million times in their life but have you stopped and 'looked' at one....
Labels: a picture a day
So after all afternoon of shopping and no pictures taken I decided to go out side at 10pm and take some pictures. These are a few of the ones I took.
We had some friends come over for dinner and to help install a few things. New screen door. New above the stove microwave/range. Both look awesome! We have a great dinner too. Steaks, corn on the cob, home made potatoe salad, and for dessert home made apple pie!!! YUM!
