My life is about to change in a huge way!

Thursday, November 07, 2013

My husband has worked nights for the last 9 years! He is finally moving to days next week. This is so huge for me and my family. My oldest child is 12 and my youngest child is 8. My three kids (and I) have only seen their dad on Saturday's and Sunday's most or all of their life. I'm not complaining because I know many families struggle with being a single parent or two parents working different shifts an/or more than one job. Not many families have a normal life or what I would call normal. But for me, I am celebrating and rejoicing that my husband will be able to be with us every night and be a part of our lives on a daily basis.

And a personal bonus...the scale said 145 today which is where I want to be with my weight. I am also looking forward to a family trip to Lancaster, PA over Thanksgiving Recess. This year we are going to see The Miracle of Christmas at Sight & Sound Theater. I have three weeks to lose a couple more pounds so I can enjoy the Amish food that I will be devouring while we are there and not feel guilty. Also enjoying the indoor pool at the hotel we are staying to keep my exercise in check.
