Our Brains Finally Started Working!
Brian's home safe and sound from his trip to Phoenix. We spent his first day back shopping for a dresser for my oldest daughter. We've spent the last couple of years rearranging where the kids sleep. We finally got our third bunk bed in the f... Read more
Brian made it home safe and sound late last night. I think it was around midnight. I stayed up for him, watching too much TV. It kept me awake, though. His trip went well and he made some good business contacts. He also brought us some pres... Read more
Feeling Better, But Lonely
I know that sounds crazy, me lonely. I have six kids. How on Earth can I be lonely?
I'm feeling much better. I was actually feeling better from the stomach bug yesterday. The weather is beautiful, so I went for a walk (2.2 miles), an... Read more
I'm Too Busy to be Sick!!!
This weekend wasn't so bad. I worked Friday through Sunday, but really enjoyed the people I worked with. It got busy at times and slow at times. The usual strange orders that pop up (I'm a hospital pharmacist), but nothing to overwhelm me. I... Read more
A New Activity: Twin Aerobics
Yesterday, I was reading Spark articles, getting as many points as I could while eating my lunch. I read advice on selecting workout DVDs. One thing suggested was to use Netflix and try out DVDs before putting any real money toward them.

May Showers Bring June Flowers?
I haven't blogged since last Thursday, so I thought I'd give an update. The kids did great this weekend. Stevie had his First Communion, and Mary and Pat had their Confirmation. We had a fun party afterward to celebrate. Boy! Can Brian smoke... Read more
Thank you everyone who posted comments on my "Bummed" blog. You've inspired me to keep at it. It's been a stressful week too, but I'm making it through. The house is presentable now for our party on Sunday. There's still some work for tomorr... Read more
I was anxious for yesterday to arrive. It's May, time to weigh again. I knew I would be right by my doc's office, so I used the same scale as the previous few months. The good news is that it went down. The kind of depressing news is that I'... Read more
Hubby's coming around!!
I think Brian is making a real effort now!!! We went on a walk yesterday evening. It was so nice to walk with him. I was a little tired, I had already walked 2.5 miles earlier. I usually walk a lot faster than him. We were at the same level... Read more
I'm Taking Today Off
I just finished my work weekend. I work 10.5 hour shifts in a hospital pharmacy, Fri, Sat and Sun. Not a bad weekend. Some weekends are insane busy and I feel like quitting on the spot. This was a good paced weekend, busy enough to stay awak... Read more
Spark People Theme Song
Here's my vote for a Spark People theme song. I've got it on my ipod, and it really motivates me when it comes on.
"Get on Your Feet" By Gloria Estefan
You say I know it's a waste of time
There's no use trying
So scared that life... Read more
I knew I wouldn't be perfect this weekend. With two grown-up nights out planned, I figured my eating (and drinking) wouldn't be the best. I really didn't do too bad for taking a break.
Friday morning, I got a full workout in. That made... Read more
Kid quote for the day
I'm sitting here on Spark People logging in my exercise for the day. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical, then the weight machine and stretching. I definitely look like I just worked out. My four-year old twins were asking why their big brothe... Read more
I Did It!
I've been avoiding the long walk since I started on Spark People. I finally tackled it today. It's three miles, with some hard hills. I've avoided it because I usually can't walk without taking the twins, my four year old twins that together ... Read more
My Husband's Revelation
Half way through my work weekend, I remembered that Brian went to the doctor on Friday. That means he HAD to step on a scale. I had asked him earlier in the week what he thought his weight was. He said 265, I was estimating at least 275. We... Read more
