    Great job decorating. I am sure the kids will be very excited. I don't decorate the apartment. It is just me.

    Looks really great. I especially love your dog by the tree, he looks so comfy. I wish we could have decorations outside, but they would get stolen.

Wk 1 day 1 Lipo Slim/Detox diet

Friday, November 30, 2012

Wednesday weigh in....164.4 up 3.2 lbs :(

Today (11/30) I have begun the Lipo Slim and Natural Cleanse Detox diet. I read the article that was published by a news anchor who tried it and decided to do the free trial. So lets see if I can get back on track with a lil push in the right direction.

Kids are at grammy's this weekend since no school today. Jason has to work tomorrow so it will be just me this weekend for the most part. But a crap load of homework as usual and house cleaning so hopefully I have a productive weekend. Well I have to since I have a paper due tonight, and stuff due on Monday.

My Oper. MGMT exam was horrible again. Got a D. With my first 2 exams and the excel assignment, I am a fraction of a point away from a C-. I have to figure out a way to get a good grade on this last exam in a couple weeks. I am clueless though. This irritates me so bad! I am an A/B student and I am trying to get a C-! I can't wait for the questionairres to go out so I can voice my opinion on the class!

My stomach issues have gotten better since uping the dose of the prilosec but I still have issues with the nausea here and there. Not as frequent. So my dr emailed me a req. for an ultrasound. Calling this morning for an appt.

TGIF everyone!

    If you are a A/B student then you probably know how to study. Have you tried talking to the teacher? Have you tried challenging any of the work you've done that came up short? I wish I did more of that in my younger days. It seems professors have so much power to affect students' lives and careers. Doesn't seem fair. If you need study tips, I could brainstorm some for you. I used to teach them to middle schoolers once upon a time.

Thurs 22nd-Tues 27th

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Good Morning All. I hope that everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving and the weekend! Mine was fantastic (well for the most part lol)

Thursday...loaded up and headed out to my FIL's to drop off Bella. Came back down and spent the day with my mom and step dad eating yummy food and watching the Lions game. Ate a lot emoticon

Friday...took the kids and went with FIL to a kids hand on museum in Lansing. That was a ton of fun even for us! Came back to FIL's to find Bella swollen eyes almost shut having an allergic reaction and had to take her to an emergency vet. She had to get a shot of benadryl and a steriod. Took a couple days for the swelling to go down but she looks good now. I believe that she had an allergic reaction to swiffer wet jet when the kids OVERCLEANED (lol) Grandpas floor. Bella went in there, not sure if she just inhaled the fumes or if the kids accidently sprayed her.

Saturday...Me and Jason took off and did a little shopping, came back to FIL's and cooked Thanksgiving dinner with him. Ate a lot again. Ate Thanksgiving leftovers all weekend even for breakfast emoticon Watched the Michigan/Ohio St game (bummer!)

Sunday...Packed up early and came home. Relaxed for a bit, put up the tree, and then relaxed some more and went to bed early.

Monday...long day back to school emoticon came home and spent way too long trying to write a bried report of my findings for this excel crap for my oper. mgmt class due today. Plus tried to do some of the study guide for today's exam. I need to get my grade up in this class. Right now I have a D+ and I need at least a C- to not have to retake the class. I don't care how many times I read the book or listen to the lectures, none of it makes any sense. I really wish she didn't use her own book. I think that this is why even reading the books doesn't help. She is one of those who doesn't answer questions either.

Tuesday...Exam in my horrible oper. mgmt class. Then I have a few more decorations to put up outside. And of course more homework. Have to write an analysis paper on 2 WSJ articles for Acc. and then work on the ppt for my group presentations along with my spanish lab for spanish. 3 weeks and 1 day left in this semester! Can't wait, worst semester by far!

Lipo Slim...has anyone ever heard of this? Or tried it? I saw an article on it last night and decided to order the free trial. I need a lil help getting back on this wagon! I have no extra energy to do any extra workout. My eating has went out the window lately. Guess we'll see!

Well I hope everyone has a fantastic day!!!

    You have had a busy weekend and week so far. I'm not surprised though as you're always busy. LOL. You are doing such a great job though handling it all. I know it may not feel like it but you have to remember your circumstances whenever you have an off day. The rest of your life does affect your healthy choices. Good luck on your exam (though you've probably already taken it by now). Keep up the wonderful work!

    With that kind of class load, no wonder you don't have any extra energy. Does your college have tutoring available? Or do you know anyone who has taken this lady's class before that could help you out? Have you tried talking to her during office hours instead of during class? Maybe she would be more receptive one on one.

Hang in there, 3 weeks will fly by.

Starting over 38-40 Updates & THanksgiving

Monday, November 19, 2012

What a great weekend! Got so much accomplished :)

Friday...Don't feel that I did so great on my Spanish quiz. But I don't think 1 lower grade will hurt. It wasn't as bad as I expected but I am not sure if I got my A maybe a B so thats ok :)

Saturday...Familys pics (yes if you haven't seen it already I have posted some) went great! I loved the new studio! They did an awesome job. Kids were lil troopers as we were there for a little over 2 hours for the whole process. Took the kids next door to the studio to Coldstone (which I didn't get anything but I did have a bite of each of the kids to try) while we waited for the pics to print. I love that I get my pics same day. Then came home, kids went to Grammas for the night and me and Daddy relaxed for the night.

Sunday...I cleaned my horrible house! Took me forever in the kitchen. But hubby went and got a new mop for me and I got my floors done properly! Put the totes of pool accessories away. 1 tote left in the kitchen but that is my Halloween decor and we will be taking that to be stored at FIL's house. Put some of the new pics up on the wall. But we got some many pics this time I need like 6 or 7 more frames. Just have to figure out where they are going. Probably some in my bedroom. Not much wall space. Got most of my Christmas cards/pics filled out just have a few more to address and they will be in the mail tomorrow :)

Monday...Long day at school, sinus headache, really foggy, and sooo tired. Couldn't fall asleep last night after Walking Dead so watched a movie, didn't get to sleep til 11:30 and got up at 5:30.

Today is my last day of class for the week. Kids have a normal day at school today then tomorrow Evie has a half day. Then have to be at her school again an hour after she gets out for conferences. I have to get some homework done and the laundry. Then on Wednesday, I have a couple things to cook that I am taking to my moms Thurs. Thursday we will be heading to my FIL's to drop off the dog, then over to my moms for the day for Thanksgiving dinner and football, then back to FIl's for the rest of the weekend. We are making dinner for him on Friday. Then Saturday we will be doing the kids Christmas shopping for him.

Not sure if I will be making another blog this week as I will be busy with preparations for having a nice relaxing 4 days of nothing :) So I want to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and safe travels for those traveling this week.
