Sun, 10 Nov 2013 21:02:01 EST BOOM! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5525364 Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> Once again I managed to lose track of time and Sparkpeople in 2013 but the pregnancy was a little rough and my blog has been gaining some momentum, so between the kids, the blog, the pregnancy and life itself it has been a little hectic! <BR> <BR> ANYHOW! <BR> <BR> My son was born on Sept 18th, 2013, weighing in at a big old 8lb 14oz! He was put in the NICU for a week cause he has some fluid on his lungs and they kept him in or a week on antibiotics. It sucked but... Mon, 28 Oct 2013 09:54:15 EST Here we go...AGAIN! On to number FOUR!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5327283 Well, I haven't been here in a while because I have been lying in bed feeling like death for quite some time over January and February and some of March then started to come back to life a few weeks ago and here we are again - feeling pretty good! <BR> <BR> I am happy to announce that we're EXPECTING out 4th child AND it is a BOY! It has been a huge shock to the system as we were not planning on any more and had only just started talking about the possibility of 1 more when low and behold ... Thu, 18 Apr 2013 07:57:33 EST Off to the Dr. we shall go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5203202 I finally took myself to the Dr. yesterday as I have an ongoing issue with nasal polyps. They have been removed twice but they came back, again, and they were causing me some discomfort and now an infection. My copay is high and I had to use some of our gas money to get the prescriptions but it is time I looked after me for once. I am no good to anyone if I'm not feeling my best! <BR> <BR> Anyway, the Dr. weighed me and I have put on almost 20 lbs since the last time about a yr ago! SHAME... Sat, 12 Jan 2013 07:27:04 EST Let us look back at 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5187668 2012 started off for us as a GREAT year and we really thought things were going to come full circle and put us where we want to be but as the year went on and we brought a car, which then died on us, and then spent most of the rest of the year without a car again and missed summer and adventures with the kids and all sorts of other stuff - money worries got worse, the hubs was working his ass off and barely at home because of the car situation - he had to spend hours sitting around at work af...

I don't think i've gained anything but I am totally out of shape!

I've also had a baby in that time! This makes no sense... <BR> <BR> I think it might be the "CVS FITNESS PROGRAM", which basically means I walk about an hour a day going to CVS for my deals, so that might have something to do with it :D <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/8/l385706367.jpg"> Sun, 26 Jun 2011 08:27:25 EST Time flies! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4317015 Wow it has been 4 weeks since I last posted here!

Yay! <BR> <BR> Don't ask me why I never threw them away, but I guess I am the eternal optimist! :D <BR> <BR> Hope you're all well!? <BR> <BR> xxx Thu, 23 Jun 2011 04:57:13 EST Exercise? Hahaha! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4242539 I have to say, since I posted my last blog about getting out the stepper - the stepper has stayed in the hallway!!! I think the only exercise i've had with it is the picking it up off the floor as i've tripped over it the 10 or so more times! <BR> <BR> Ah man! I really need to pull it together!! :D <BR> <BR> How're you all doing?! xx Thu, 19 May 2011 05:08:36 EST Spring has sprung...out comes the stepper! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4228127 So! Spring is fully on the way and the weather is starting to look up! I took the dusty stepper out of the closet today and i'm eating right again...not that I actually ate wrong, but I have to make a conscious effort to eat more! <BR> <BR> I weighed myself today and im still a good weight - still going down instead of up, so that's great! I also lost an inch off my waist compared to where I was in 2010 prior to my pregnancy!! The inch i've lost on my waist has migrated to my hips though as ...

I love that I can walk everywhere with the baby in the carrier so I don't end up dragging that stroller on the bus (I love my stroller but between that and the car seat it is nigh on impossible unless someone comes with me). <BR> <BR> <BR> We went all around town and she slept through most of it all cozy in her carrier! <BR> <BR> While she was asleep I brought her a pre... Wed, 27 Apr 2011 09:55:25 EST EASTER!! :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4187698 Hope you all had a great Easter! I took the kids out this morning to an event and they all came back with giant easter baskets crammed with chocolate, games and even a toothbrush (yeh, I don't know either!). They even gave me an easter basket for the baby, crammed with NUK pacifiers, bibs, teethers, teething books, washes, lotions etc etc etc...seriously must have been $75 worth of easter baskets they gave us free...was such a lovely gesture! I was expecting a tiny event, a few free eggs and... Sun, 24 Apr 2011 18:42:04 EST Hello!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4182115 It is almost Easter!

It is our 4 year wedding anniversary today! <BR> <BR> Considering how we found eachother on the internet (we were cool before it became all the rage with everyone else) people didn't think we'd last! Yet, here we are, 5 years later, 4 years married, 2 great boys and our beautiful little girl! <BR> <BR> I really couldn't ask for anything more!
