Day #2 of working out complete. I think I have found the routine that's going to work for me. Once I come home, I eat an early dinner, take a nap and then wake up feeling energized to get in an awesome workout routine. Lets see how many days I can keep this up for.

Work has been overwhelming lately, but I am staying strong because I looove my hours. I do this for my family and it's awesome to get home when the kids get home from school. I have never had a 9-5p job and this is the closest to one that I will have in the hotel industry. I have to hang in there for my babies!

That restaurant sounds wonderful. So glad everyone enjoyed themselves and the food. That's always a plus.

Wednesday Gavin and I went to The Norma Johnson center and saw a butterfly exhibit. He got to feed butterflies. He didn't last long in there because he wanted to hike. I dropped my phone 4-5 inches from the ground and shattered my screen. I was so bummed. It's going to cost me $100 + tax to fix it now. After the exhibit we went exploring the grounds. They have trails mowed and cleared in the woods so we went exploring. We found two ponds, 3 bridges, a shed for bird wstching and a few animals. One bridge was a cool suspension bridge. That was Gavin's favorite then the pond that had a bunch of frogs was up there too.

Well I have been slackin again. I don't know why I do that either. Seems I only get a walk at lunchtime. Haven't worked out since the 14th. So today I dusted off my Cathe step workouts and did a 40 min low impact step workout. I am stoked to say I did the whole workout without thinking I was going to die LOL YAY!!!!!! Tomorrow I want to do the 30 min total body sculpting workout but I need to go buy a new ball.

Gavin just woke up so I gotta run. Have a great day!

Yesterday was celebration day #2, which was even more awesome. I first went to work and thankful that I was able to get out on time. My family came from NY for a night out. Hubby chose an amazingly perfect restaurant call Carlucci's. It was on the water front and made for a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and everyone totally enjoyed and didn't have not one negative thing to say. I have a picky aunt and she even enjoyed every single bite. She normally has something negative to say. We then all came to the house to have the after party. I totally didn't want the night to end, but everyone had to head home. Plus, I had to get to bed to now start my day all over again.

Now that I am officially 40, it's time for me to be grown an do what's right for my health. I can do this!

Glad you had an awesome weekend with friends. Sounds like you certainly had a lot going on. Does Gavin still give you a hard time to go to bed?

My kids are back home from visiting with my parents in St Vincent. I was sooooo happy to see them last night. I slept like a baby and now waiting on them to wake up.

I totally need to go grocery shopping to meal prep for the week. My mother said told me yesterday that I always was exercising when she called. Now I am either laying down or just doing nothing. Pretty interesting observation that was kind of a wake up call.

I'm glad you had a great time. I am feeling better now. TOM sucks now that I had Gavin and fixed. I hurt so bad I feel sick. I even had to find the heating pad this time. If I don't use ibuprofen and midol all day on time I hurt the rest of the day. It just gets worse and worse. Couldn't work out for two days. Good thing my worse day was my day off.

This weekend was our St. Joseph's Church Festival. I think we did real well. We sold out of sausage sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches and lemonade. Not sure if we ran outta anything else we left after my last shift. Enjoyed the weekend tho for sure.

I gotta tiss Gavin in the shower here before it gets later. Hope things are going well for you! Have a great night!!

How are you feeling?

The concert & dinner in NY was awesome! It was one of the best date nights I have had in a very long time. Kids are coming home late tomorrow night and I can't wait to see their little faces. They have been gone for about 3 weeks. I think my daughter could stay at Grandmas house all summer, but my baby boy is totally ready to come home.

How'd your visit go?

Woke up with cramps today and have been feeling awful almost all day. I slept good and was bummed when Anna woke me up at 638am. I felt so bad I took a nap which I never do. I'm ready to go back to bed now too. LOL

Luckily this morning I got my workout in or it wouldn't be done today. Have a good night!

I so hope you and your family had a great 4thof July. Mine was real nice. We (Gavin, Phil and I) went to Brandywine Falls and on a hike at Ledges Trail. Gavin absolutely loves being outside esp hiking.

I have gotten 7 outta 8 workouts in so far this month. I am super proud of myself. I also get a 15-40 min walk on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for sure during my lunch break.

Have a good night. I need to take Gavin to bed soon. I'm going to fall asleep lol

Have a good night my friend!

It so took me to see myself in the mirror one day and I was like wow you are looking like you're pregnant again. I like this saying...."Until you make the decision to get healthy, it won't happen!" I so believe it too. When I sit on the sofa and think I should work out but don't I decide to not get healthy. I so badly want it but I decide to snack or sit instead. I just take it one day at a time now. In the moment. With that said I have decided to get back to it and get healthy. Not so much skinny anymore but healthy. Drinking more water is a biggy for me I just don't get enough. I will get it though. Friday was my new start. I walk at work fir my lunch still and I started working out to the 21 day fix. I am making better decisions about what's fir dinner and such too. I'm not prepping this round I just really want to make it through the workouts while I work on food. It's hard now esp with me only eating. Gavin still is VERY picky. Today is day 3 and my buttocks and thighs are SO sore I will need to stretch all day. Maybe an Epson bath......LOL

I'll be back later to cgeck in. We got this!!! Here's to a great day today!

I am soooo tired this morning because I came to work at around 4:15 this morning. We had a callout on the overnight shift, so I came in so the other person could go home. He was here since 4p and left when I arrived. I was about to not answer my phone when I saw my boss calling, but I decided to be nice and help him out.

Hoping to keep today healthy. Since I woke up sooo early, I am starving.

Yesterday was an awesome eating day. I thought tally kept myself under control. I am really upset with myself, which helped me keep self in line. I just don't like the way I look in the mirror and it kills me every time I see myself. Time for change!

My goal that I set for myself 10 years ago was to be at my goal weight by my 40th birthday. Well, I am about to turn 40 in 21 days and I am at my biggest weight ever. What is wrong with me. I am trying not to be depressed about it, but I can't help it. Right now I actually feel like crying because I don't know this journey is so hard for me. Am I a fighter? Absolutely. Will I ever give up? Absolutely Not! I just need to dust myself off and do what I know is right.

Hi. Sorry been away. Got really busy in May with Anna's graduation and then our cable was shut off so I don't have my laptop to sign in anymore. I won't have internet til Aug so I may be a bit hit and miss. I have a heck of a time finding the boards on my phone.

I have been up and down and now back up. Why do I like to eat so nuch. LOL I have to be stronger and more accountable. I will do my best to keep popping in.

Maintaining is a great place to be. It's better then moing up. Keep working at it. We CAN do it!!! July is almost here.

Night!!

One good thing that I am doing well is maintaining my current weight. Of course, my weight is way up and my efforts haven't been working to get it down. My willpower just hasn't been strong enough. I need to try harder.

I totally feel alone through this journey. It's totally up to me and only me to make this work for me to see progress. Hubby doesn't care about his weight and what he eats. So it's only up to me to succeed.

June was supposed to be a good healthy month for me, but I am still exactly the same weight. I go down, then up and down and up and down and up. Roller coastering is who I am these days. I am still fighting the battle and refuse to give up or even be upset at myself.

June is a new month and I have really started holding myself accountable with what I put in my mouth. I have to fight harder because my body is hurting in parts that didn't hurt before. Like my knees and now back. I know is weight related and I need to stay in control.

After my vacation, I saw that everyone liked amazingly well and I just felt sloppy & fat. I want some good compliments the next time I see my family.

Time to get moving and keep track of my nutrition.

Good morning, I made it back home safely last night. I had such a wonderful time and everything and everyone was just beautiful. I was able to spend time with my grandmother and she's looking amazing. We had her singing and dancing and it was such a joy to see. The Island of St. Vincent has certainly come a long way and gets better and better every times I visit.

My mother had an awesome time at her birthday celebrations. One night she invited some of her closest friends to the house. On her actual birthday the family took her out to dinner to another island near by.

The trip to and from was long, but totally hassle free. There were lines after lines after lines. As I get older, time just goes by soooo much quicker. Traveling with my sister was fun & relaxing.

While I was there I saw the light and it's time. I have been waiting on the click and I finally received it. Health is more important to me than my body shows. I don't like being fat and know it's time before my body really starts to break down.

I am reaching another birthday and just getting older. My body isn't getting any younger and I need to treat it much better. I need to stop talking about it and just do it. I know what I need to do and I have done it before.

One day at a time!

I am heading to NY to them take a flight to St Vincent in the morning. My sister and I are going to celebrate my mother's birthday with her and the family. I can't wait to get there, but I am so going to miss my babies. Hubby is staying back to take care of them.

I wanted to stop in earlier, but I would have been late for work. I slept like a baby last night and doesn't realize how tired I was. I slept from 5p to 5a with 1 or 2 interruptions. The good part with sleeping is that I couldn't snack.

Work yesterday went by extremely quickly and I didn't realize how busy it was until my time was over. I am still loving my morning hours with going in early and getting home early afternoon. Now I see why people faught over this shift.

Still no exercise yesterday, but haven't given up hope. I have also been working on increasing my water intake, which we all know is important.

Off to work I go!

I have about 3 minutes before I have to leave, but wanted to stop in to say hello. Last night my baby girl had a soccer game and won 4-1. She's having fun and always does well when she gets out of her head and doesn't think as hard. She is a perfectionist and always wants to do well.

I still haven't gotten in my workout and now it has to be by choice. I need to fight through my tiredness and just get my butt moving again. I am working on my nutrition for when I get back exercising it makes a difference. We all know that exercise is nothing if your not eating well.

My knee actually stopped hurting, but that's surely a reminder that I need to lose this weight again. 3 times a charm! I spotted my weight twice and I pray that the 3rd time, I am able to maintain.

Yesterday I was extremely exhausted and was fighting to keep my eyes open from the second my alarm clock went off. I was finally able to start settling down at around 6:45p when my daughter left for dance practice. Why was I still awake when she returned at 9:15? Rediculously right! I finally feel asleep at around 10:30p and now feeling better this morning.

I haven't been exercising as I had planned and don't have a good excuse as to why. I just need to start and add you know I have been struggling.

I hate coming on to say that I am still having problems getting my nutrition together. My weight is about the same as it was last month. I just need it going downwards, but need to focus more. A lot more!

Off to work I go!

I'm so tired today. Work went fast atleast. Last night Gavin decided he couldn't sleep. We went upstairs about 10pm picked up a bit in his room and then did our routine and went to bed. However he didn't fall asleep until after midnight. I got up at 630am and am so ready to go to bed now lol

Got in a nice short walk today at lunch. I wanted to rain but never did. It was spitting and I thought I better get back to work before I get stuck out here or drenched. Other then that all I have done today was clean and relax. Tomorrow I am off and have plans to run around to get things for Anna's graduation party and more of her invitations because we ran out. I pick those up as early as 10 am tomorrow.

Well I'll be back tomorrow. Night! Hope all is well!!

Great job my friend!! Super job this morning. I just laid in bed listening to my hubby snore. I should have gotten up but didn't. It is my day off work today. I need to hurry and get in the shower to get ready for church and to wake Anna up to go with me. Father Jimmy is going to do a mass for all the graduating seniors this year and I want her to go. I miss my baby girl. My teenage girl is hard to predict and isn't as lovable as my younger once was. LOL

I weighed in yesterday and today (LOL) at 148.6. As bummed as that number made me feel it is just that a number. I have walked more then I ever have at lunch and I have incorporated Jessica Smith videos which I was not doing. So I say that is a win for me. I am also more cautious of what I eat......I still eat those darn cookies though LOL

Here's to a better 20 weeks!!! A more focused and ok with my ups and downs. As long as I never quit!! I will keep pushing forward. Talk to you later!! Gotta get a shower so I can wake Anna up to get ready by 11. Ttyl

I set my alarm clock an hour earlier than usual to stay getting in a morning workout. I promised myself just 20 minutes and I accomplished just that. I am starting slowly and will add onto my time to hopefully build consistency. I had to hot snooze a couple times, but I am awake and need to now get ready for work.

Work has been doing amazingly well and hubby just got a job offer. He's extremely excited and I am peeps of him. He is sooooo miserable arty his current job. I told him, if he isn't happy he needs to look for something new. So he does just that!

Happy Saturday to you!

Didn't get a workout Wednesday like I was planning. The day just got away from me. I did however get in a nice 1.83 mile in yesterday at my lunch in 30 min then after work before getting Gavin from my mom and dad I got in 30-Minute Cardio Ball Blast. I really enjoyed this video too. Today I got in another good walk at lunch. I walked 1.71 miles in 28 min. I haven't gotten another workout in yet. Planning to though. Today is 30-Minute Strength Training from Jessica Smith.

I checked my weight and it was probably a bad thing but it was up but I was doing really well with keeping my eating in check. I just don't get it. This is another reason I usually stop working out because I don't want to gain weight I want to lose weight. But this time no matter what I am going to keep pushing through. Even if I have to post a weight gain tomorrow.

Gotta run and tidy up the house again. I think this is an every day thing LOL I have 2 weeks from today and my baby girl will be graduating high school. I'm sad I really miss the younger her. Her party will be two weeks tomorrow. I the things I have to do yet. I'm stressing and it could be stress weight too. I need to find a happy middle ground. LOL Well I'm off here for the night. Talk to you later!!

Today is my day off and I have plans to pick up the toy room and finish the laundry. Before playing outside I need to convince Gavin to help me clean up his toys from the foyer. I can focus more on being outside when I know I don't have to much cleaning to do inside. I hope the rain holds off til later today. I plan to go out and have Gavin ride his bike and I can walk at a faster pace. We will see.....I also need to do my Day 4 video. I am a few days behind because of working late. I just push it off til the last thing and by then it is 10pm and bed time. I did get a walk at lunch time both days though so not all a loss.

Here's to a great day!!!

Day 3 done!! Yesterday I did 20-Minute Belly Fat Blasting Cardio + 45 min of mowing with a push mower. Today I got in 30-Minute Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt Jessica Smith video and took a couple leisure walks at the camp ground today.

Today we had a nice day. Phil made me eggs and bacon for breakfast and then about 3 pm we headed out to Atwood Camp ground for a Mother's Day cook out. I got my workout in before heading out because I knew I wouldn't get it in after. I am finally heading in the right direction!!! My mom and dad bought me a flower bush for Mother's Day and I bought mom a planter of flowers that are suppose to attract butterflies and an outdoor wood wishing well for the planter. She was so happy to see it. She told me she went over yesterday after dinner to pick on up but they were out. I laughed and told her I bought the last one at 330pm yesterday. It made me happy to see I picked the right thing for her. Well I'm going to tidy up a bit before heading up to bed. Talk to you later!!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Even though it's slow I'm happy to say I am feeling really good about where I'm heading. I have been consistent with my walks and I'm trying my best with eating better foods. I am adding a Jessica Smith workout (#springahead ) with my walks since I have only been walking and I want to workout more. So I started yesterday. Yesterday was my day 1 and I did 30-Minute Total Body Sculpt + 20 Minutes of walking and lunch and then Gavin and I went for a leisurely walk (his pase) for an hr. I still need to get in my video tonight but I may use my mowing as my walk if it starts raining soon. I just wanted to stop in to see how you were doing.

We can do this D!! I know it's hard and I often wander why it is so hard to lose the weight and sooooooo easy to gain it. Wish I didn't like to be lazy and eat a lot LOL It would be so much easier LOL Well I'm off to clean up from mowing and I need to run over to Buehler's for mom's Mother's Day gift then hope for a small walk. Talk you soon.

Happy Mother's Day if I don't talk to you tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

I finally gave my dad his car back. We bought a 2005 Vibe recently and boy was he excited to have it back. Just in time too. With the weather change he does a lot more and my parents will need 2 cars again. I am happy that they have both their vehicles now.

How are things going with you? I have been trying to eat better. I wish I had a nutritionist as a friend LOL they could help me plan my grocery list LOL Speaking of...... I need to go to the grocery store again to pick up more fruit and veggies. Finding out Gavin likes most fruit and more and more veggies. Going to try to add spinach to his salads to see if he will notice or not. He likes plain lettuce but it doesn't have much nutrition. Better then nothing though I suppose. Now to get my butt off the chair/sofa and workout. I walk on my lunch hour M, T, Th, and F. But I don't seem to get anything else. Since it's the beginning of May I'm going to give myself a new start. So far I have walked Monday but missed yesterday.

Have a good day!! I'll check back later. I need to clean up the house a bit and the rest of the laundry. Also planning to get Anna's centerpieces for her graduation party done today. I found the hot glue gun and glue sticks. Then I'll have most of the pop and water, the centerpieces, tablecloths for the round tables and long tables, big plates, desert plates, napkins, silverware, and balloons. I still need to find out how much it is to rent a helium tank and ribbon and weights for the outter walls balloon dcor. Next will be snacks and the week of will be the rest of the food. We are having a taco bar, rigatoni w/and w/out meat, mild/hot and bbq wings, bbq chick legs, salad, green beans, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, fruit, chips/pretzels, cupcakes, and cake, and outside will be a fire and smore set up. Now that I wrote it all I feel I am behind again. I will be thankful when this is over. Anna's last day is 5/24. Gavin will be done on 5/17. Then it will be summer here.

Talk to you later.

Hey there D. Today is my day off and I'm just taking a mid day break before heading to get Anna from school. She has some big art projects coming home today so she isn't going to walk home. It is also a bit colder today then the last few days.

Don't beat yourself up. I am 42 and still trying. I have maintained up/down a bit here and there now for 3 yrs. Wondering why I can't do more myself. I catch myself being lazy for sure. I walk every day at lunch but when I get home do you think I work out? Nope! I can't lose weight if I don't. I will maintain which is fine but I don't want to be the same shape I am now. I would really like to lose some of my belly and inner thighs. Most of my weight is in those two areas.

I really need to plan again and deliver. I saw myself in the mirror the other day (side view) I was horrified. I couldn't believe I was that round. LOL This was sorta the same view that got me moving the first time. (I saw myself sitting on the toilet in the mirror at a hotel on vacation with the kiddos in Pittsburg. Now to get moving.

Can you workout after work before heading home? I don't get all sweaty at work myself I just walk outside. Dr even put up a picnic table outside now for me. I eat my lunch at work every day so this will be nice. I can take my lunch outside then go on my walk. Talk to you later. Gotta get Gavie ready and head out to get Anna. Have a good day!!

Ask me if I stayed logging? I haven't! Just lazy! I have gotten up early, got ready for work, made my family breakfast and now hello to you.

I am almost 40 years old and I still do not have self control. What's wrong with that picture? This is the only reason why I am still over weight. I just don't know how to stick to what I say I am going to do.

Today when I come home, I am going to take my nap, get dinner ready and then get in my workout. Getting up at 4a is too much of a struggle for right now. I wish I could workout when at work. I just get to hot to quickly and will need to change before going back to work.

Even though I am tired of logging & weighing food intake. I am probably going to have to do it for the rest of my life. I am going to have to go back to the basics that actually worked for me.

This is exercising for 30 min to an hour, taking every single bite and stopping once I got my limits. Sounds simple right!

Wish me luck!

I can't believe that I turn 40 in July and I challenged myself to have my weight under control by then. This was my trigger this morning. This is soooo ridiculous and frustrating. I'm putting myself on a very strict diet and I need to force myself to stick to it. I keep having these temptations, like today there were little chocolates left at the desk for the employees. I was about to eat the last 2, but I ended up throwing them away. I know that I shouldn't cut things out of my life completely, but I don't know how to eat foods in moderation.

I need to stop the excuses and just do what I need to do to drop this weight. It's just too much and I know my weight isn't going to disappear on it's on. I need to work at making myself better.

My kids are doing extremely well in school and with their every day activities. We are going to take them out to lunch as a treat when I get home from work. If we could afford it, they deserve any and everything because they are sooo good.

Work is sooo good when I do not have any contact with my manager. I love just being left alone to do my thing. We had a meeting the other day and he just sounded soooo ridiculous. The things that he wants us to work on, he doesn't do himself. How crazy is that?

I am going home after work and throwing out all of my snacks that I looooove. I just don't know how to control myself. I know if they are out of the house, I can't eat them. I will introduce them back once I gain back control.

I had a dream last night, that I went visiting my family and they all made fun of me. I think that was my wake up call.

Hey there D. I usually wander about my boss. She never can make up her mind on how she wants to do things. Drives me bonkers sometimes. Nothing worse then stupid boss's. Be strong and hope he leaves soon.

How's your night going? We went to test drive a car today and we are going to get it. We got them down $400 so it isn't to bad. Has a little bit of work but for the price I think we got a pretty good deal. Runs really good and the body is nice too. I will be able to give my dad back his car and I will have my own ride again. We are still going to get my Jeep fixed too. Thinking when it gets closer we may give the car to Anna for her 18th bday gift. I will have to wait to see when it's closer. I would like to get a Ford Explorer.

I'm happy to say that the whole family is in one room at this moment. We haven't all been in the same room for a long time. Night have a great night!!

Have you ever had a Stupid boss? Someone who really doesn't know what the hell he's doing? I have one of those. I went from a boss who just didn't care, to one that's just stupid. This is the foray time I have a stupid boss. I just go my way and he goes his way. I try and stay away from him because he annoys me. I am thankful that I know how to keep my month shut. I also have the ability to not let him know I don't like him. I am just waiting on him to move on to another job and we get another manager. We need someone with a backbone.

My bad habit that I need to give up is late night snacking. Wish me luck!

Hubby surprised me yesterday by working a half day and hanging out with me the Tasty of the day. Then we went to see the movie, Barber Shop 3 which was funny. Same plot as the other 2, but still new jokes that made me laugh. It was nice just hanging out with my baby.

Eating is our of control again. This is crazy that I just can't keep myself in check. Today is a new day and I am going to make out right. I bought more fruits to snack on when I feel like munching.

Later, I am off to work.

Enjoying my day doing nothing, lol. Hubby bright me lunch, now working from home from the rest of the day. He has also planned a date night which I am looking forward to tonight. Kids are on their way home from school and I can't wait to hear about their days.

My eating has been on and off being healthy. Of course not enough to bring the scale down. Being healthy these days takes a lot of effort on my behalf.

Enjoying my second day off in a row. This is my first whole weekend off. It would be even better if my little one wasn't feeling sick. Yesterday before taking Gavie up to bed I realized he had a fever. I tried to get him to take his chewable Tylenol (he normally takes it no problem) but he mustta felt so bad he didn't want to cooperate. By the time I was going to take him up to bed I went to pick him up and he was burning up. Found a thermometer and he had a 102 temp. Finally got some Tylenol in him (had to put it in his cool-aid). He slept until 6am and had an accident in bed which woke him up. I thought it was pee but he had diarrhea too. Poor kiddo. Atleast my house will be clean LOL I just wish he was feeling better it is gorgeous outside.

Weighed in yesterday at 150 again. I also got my blood work back from hubbies health assessment we have to do every year to keep his ins down. I saw my weight has been 147-150 for the past 3 yrs. I thought that was interesting. I have gotten my cholesterol down too. It's still at the high end but it's not in the red anymore. YAY ME!!

Hubby and my brother are at Pull A Part now pulling a rear end for my jeep and an engine for a car my brother is working on. I hope it isn't to expensive and they can get it fixed soon. I have been driving my dad's car now for a few months. Luckily it hasn't caused to much trouble but I know with the weather being nicer and nicer dad's plans with his friends and father will become an issue with me getting to and from work. I am determined to get our finances back on track it kills me. I just hope it doesn't kill hubby and I. He gets so mad about money issues but he doesn't want anything to do with the bills. Anyway......that is a whole other issue.

I hope you have a great day and are doing well. Talk to you soon!!

Eating lunch now. Forgot my morning snack so I'm hungry now. I had a black forest ham sandwich with am cheese and mustard, a gogert (stole from Gavin's snack pile lol), strawberries and an Apple. Planning to get outside for a walk soon too.

Started witing in my journal too to see if that keeps me accountable. I leave it out in the open to remind me to jot down what I need to. Yesterday was not a good food day for me. I found out though that I eat alot when I'm bored. I caught myself in the kitchen alot yesterday. I did end up getting a long walk with Gavin in the stroller last night too. So it wasn't a complete wash.

Continuing the graduation preparations. I'm sad and happy at the same time. I'll post pics later (closer to May 28). Off I go on my lunch walk.

Have a great day!!

Afternoon my friend. Hope things are well with you. I finally got a journal to write in. Now to get started. I peaked at the scale this morning before heading to the dermatologist and the scale said I am still the same. I will take it because I am not doing anything other then small walks at lunch. I bought a new scale and it tells me the cals I need to maintain my weight. Interesting thing I saw is that I need to eat 1800+ cals to maintain my current weight. I was a bit surprised to see that number.

My mini goal is to write in my journal, eat 1500 cals, drink more water and workout 3 days at minimum a week. Baby steps here I go.

Happy Sunday evening!! Had a nice Sunday for the most part. Didn't do much of anything. I need to pack my lunch here in a few before heading up to bed. This way I don't have to worry about that part when I'm getting ready for work. Planning alittle ahead this week.

Night!!

emoticon job D!!!

Found out at work today I get to be off the next 2 Saturdays!! I have been working every Saturday now since the beginning of Feb. UGGG Phil has to work this coming Sat so he gets to go in early and if I go in to do the mail I will just take Gavin with me for an hour or so. Doesn't bother me to go in since Phil is going to be working. But making plans now for the next weekend. Thinking Pittsburg Zoo and Aquarium. Not sure if we will stay somewhere too or just made a day of it. Gotta look into the prices of hotels around. I will have to work Friday so if Phil wants to make a whole weekend we won't be able to go til after 5.

Gotta get to cleaning the house up again so I won't have to do it tomorrow on my full day off. Enjoy your day!!
