Speaking of things changing...

Over the past few years I've most definitely changed in appearance. I used to be slim and trim and now I'm wearing the extra padding of a mother. But, I don't want that darn extra padding. I'm losing right now...yay! But it's such a slow, slow, slow process. I suppose I could invest in some Fentraphen to help. We'll have to see, I am desperate to get this weight off.

Looking Back

My husband and I celebrated our 4th anniversary recently. Looking back at four years ago things have changed a lot. There are some obvious things like the fact that we have 2 kids, we live in a totally different state, he's not in school anymore, I'm no longer employed, we no longer have cats which means no more changing a litter box...stuff like that. But a lot is the same. We're still living somewhere way too small. Back then it was a basement apartment, now it's a small duplex. We're still very much in love and neither of us have plans of changing that. Our core ethics and values are the same. While I'd love to live in a place with more room, I'm pretty glad the most important stuff is the same now as it was then.

Oh and one more thing...

I've been busy doing a Biggest Loser style competition with some other moms online. I'm doing it purely through diet and exercise, no weight loss pill for me. Although it's mighty tempting. I may give in. But for now I'm working my rear off, I hope literally. Even with my current cold I've been exercising. Oh yeah, I'm that dedicated it to. This time the "baby" weight will come off, no ifs, ands or buts.

Hi there!

So yeah, I haven't posted here in awhile. It's hard to maintain three blogs. But here I am tonight. I'm sick, I'm tired and I could use a good blemish acne cream at the moment, but here I am. It's been nuts here, my oldest is about to start school for the first time...yikes! My baby and I are both sick, which we caught from my husband. I'm just hoping my oldest doesn't catch it, I would hate for her to miss the start of school, she's been looking so forward to it.

Future Career?

I am a stay-at-home-mom right now. I love it, I really do. But someday I'm going to have to do something else. Before I quit the workforce to stay home I was a contract coordinator for a fiscal intermediary company. That was really just a fancy way of saying I did data entry for a payroll company along with doing the customer service aspect too. I totally don't want to do that again, there are actually a lot of things I'd never want to do. But what do I want to do? Be a futures broker? Be a personal trainer? An ultrasound tech? Hmmmm...time will tell.

We lucked out!

We lucked out this week. I have a friend who was selling a bunch of new electronic stuff for really great prices. We spent over $70 of cool stuff, too bad she didn't have a Canon Powershot to sell, that would've been awesome! But anyway, we're pretty excited! My husband will finally have a blue tooth headset which he's been wanting for a long time and we'll have a new flash drive and some other stuff. Yay for good bargains!
