In The Still Of The Night

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

It's so quiet here now. Hubby is in bed, Karry, Nick, and the grand kids are back home in Oregon, and it's almost time for bed. I know I didn't blog at all week, but with the kids here all week I just didn't have the time. I also didn't workout or log my food. One of the days I wasn't feeling well, I had sinus problems and didn't eat a lot. But I was still surprised to see I had lost a pound or two. HA!! That lasted until they went home, then the weekend happened! We all know how THAT went! But I'm back to logging, blogging, and working out (although I didn't at work today, but did my Your Shape here at home on the Xbox). emoticon

First up..the week long visit from the kids. Only one day was rocky this time. Nick and Karry had a tiff, but they got it worked out (I did do some talking to both of them). Caleb and Malia are getting so big! Caleb is almost as tall as I am! And Malia is such a cute little sweetie. For the most part she was good. Esp the night Papa Chuck and I had the kids while Karry and Nick spent the at the NYNY on the Strip. Caleb played a lot of Xbox, but then I got him a new game game when he got here. We went to the cupcake store, the movies (The Croods in 3D), we had all you can eat sushi, and just all hung out. The kids liked playing in the trailer (the living quarters part) and the night before they went home, both Caleb and Malia said they wanted to stay and live out there. emoticon Needless to say they went home with mom and dad the next morning. I was so sorry to see them go back. I cried when they left and I miss them. They sent me text mgs every 3 hrs or so on the way here and back, just so I knew they were safe. Here's a few pictures:

After they left on Fri it was so quiet! We did what we always do on the weekends, then back to work today. I'm off tomorrow and Wed. Chuck has his shoulder surgery in the morning and I'm off to take care of him. I'll be back to work on Thursday. Uh Oh..does that mean TWO Mondays this week? emoticon

So eating today was OK during the day but kind of out of control this evening. I also didn't work out at lunch today but I did get an hour in of my Your Shape Fitness 2012 (on the Xbox) in tonight. It felt good to get back to it.

I guess that's it for me tonight. We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow (we have to be at the Surgery Center by 6:30 AM!). Everyone have a great tomorrow!

    Yeah, that quiet after the kids leave can seem crushing sometimes. But then I always kind of breathe a sigh of relief, too. Stef and the kids are coming July 17th and Jesse a week later. Have no clue where they'll be staying since she doesn't like an air mattress on the TV room floor. Wish us luck with the arrangements. Boy, you can sure tell Malia and Karry are from your clan. Not sure about Caleb. Couldn't get a good look at him with that ice cream cone in his face! LOL
