Current Mood: Brainstorm
See what happens when no one reminds me I was supposed to post? Lol, sheesh more than a week later! It really is too bad that not a lot of people blog anymore and sometimes I wonder if I should stop altogether and just go back to a standard website with nothing but little tidbits here and there adorning the site. However, I think I would miss it when the day’s come where I need to vent or brag or whatever about something in life that I feel is worth mentioning. I have a few things going on right now here at home, one would be planning both kids birthday parties all while dealing with the holiday’s too! Haley’s turning 10 in 3 weeks and Michael will be turning 7 two weeks before Christmas…. can we say stress? Yup just a little bit lol.
Obviously hubby did make it back from his deployment and thankfully safe and sound. We found out he won’t be deploying anymore while we’re currently stationed here in Charleston and we are now looking at what our options are for bases in the next year. Anyhoo, gonna get on here later tonight when the kids are in bed and discuss something else.

We’re almost at the finish line for this deployment! Gonna see if I can’t get my kids out of the house for an hour or so a few times this week so I can really get the house clean before hubby returns from Afghanistan!
Michael’s got 2 more games left on his baseball league with the YMCA, tomorrow morning and then on Tuesday night. They’re having an “end of season” dinner at Cici’s Pizza after Tuesday nights game… I am not thrilled. That’s gotta be one of my LEAST favorite pizza places in this whole state, cheap buffet style pizza place with cardboard tasting pizza… blech! Anyway, if it weren’t for the fact that they’ll be awarding the kid’s their trophies that night I’d probably skip out. As it is though…. *sigh*
Not much going on in Haley’s world. Still trying to find a decent dance studio for her to join since that seems to be what she REALLY wants and I can honestly see her getting really into it. There’s a place really close by the house, but two friends of mine have had their daughters in that place and do not recommend it because apparently the owner is in it for winning competitions and doesn’t give as much time to the other girl’s who aren’t registered to compete. I want Haley to have fun, not feel pressured to win because the owner wants to. So I’ll just continue my search and ask around some more I guess.
As for me, I took an unscheduled break from my workout routine thanks to this flu like sickness that hit me like a ton of bricks last week. It even took part of this week to get over the side effects it left me with. So I’ll just start again next week again. Not doing bad though, maintaining my weight loss and still eating decently. Not sure what hubby wants to do when he returns, we did talk about going out of town for a day or 2 just the two of us, but we don’t have anyone to watch the kids so we might just end up making it a day trip up to Myrtle Beach with the kids. We’ll see. 1 more full week to go until hubby/daddy comes home finally!

So mid March marked the halfway point for hubby’s return from Afghanistan! Now the kids and I can start our own count down, we usually start by counting down in months and then when we reach 6 weeks we go by weeks and then 2 weeks we go down to days. I’m so ready for him to be home already though, this deployment seems harder than the last ones we’ve had for some reason. Wish I knew why, but I honestly have no clue. Hubby himself had a hard time with the deployment the first month and half, but now he seems more “comfortable” there… well as comfortable as you can be in the desert and sharing a room with 7 other guys.
This is my final week with INSANITY and I can actually feel proud of myself for seeing it all the way through and getting such awesome results from this workout. If you view my “fitness” page all the weight loss on my ticker is just from this round of INSANITY! I’m taking a recovery week next week and just doing core & balance videos as well as running that week. Then I start round 2 of INSANITY and I should be finished in time for hubby’s homecoming. Yes as you can see I am very gung ho about getting this weight off, but more importantly about getting fit and healthy. I’m trying to be a good role model for my children so they don’t get added to the obesity stats in the US, so practicing what I preach is big with me. Can’t really take someone seriously when they talk about health and fitness who is out of shape themselves right?
So excited I finally added some of my old graphics on here! I feel so out of practice with html though, so I’m considering taking an online course over the Summer if I can… guess we’ll see how busy things get once hubby returns. Also finally submitted my site for The Quilting Bee ! Gonna try and draw a couple new things this week or weekend, everything depends on if I have time and not stressed out lol.
Okay gotta go get this workout out of the way and do some *cringe* laundry…. yuck. TTFN!
