Another year older...
Saturday, April 28, 2012
But not more responsible, just different. My life goals seem to have changed a little. For my birthday my hubby took me to dinner, we had a drink and spent the rest of our night enjoying each others company. It was amazing. Then this AM we were able to go to the gym together...I couldn't have asked for a more perfect birthday.
I am 37...yup, closing in on 40 (the new 20, right?). I am sad to think that Abagayle is my last baby. I have 5 children and one ss (so six in my house). While I have other things in life I want to do, its hard for me to know that I will never be pregnant again, I will never snuggle my new baby and never be able to begin again. I know that its silly, I wish I could have them forever. But life is more than motherhood.
I still want to teach. I am going to push ahead in school and aim for a master's in english literature.
I look forward to my older years and my alone with my husband. It will be just us someday, with grandchildren and the ability to travel. It will be a time to have the romance that we deserve.
I still want to visit each state at least once. I will travel by RV or just plan a long vacation...but it will happen.
Someday I hope to have a log cabin. It doesn't have to be our home, just a little vacation spot, but ours.
I want to pay for the kids to go to college. I have high hopes for their greatness and want to be there to watch their rise to awesomeness.
Life is more than adding to my family, its letting my family grow around me and still nurture and support their dreams. Life is giving my husband 100% of me someday.
Exercise goals... healthy. That is what I aim for now. I just want to be strong and healthy. My weight goes down slowly but I refuse to be hungry and I can't let myself avoid all food for fear of being fat. I increased calories and have finally gotten back down to the 149...5 lbs loss from a few weeks ago. I hope that I am on my way to fat loss and muscle gain. After all, I am feeling stronger.
