Well, today is our 7th anniversary.  And we didn't even get to spend the day together.  We both worked in the morning and Jeff is still at work currently.  Our plans are to go out to a nice dinner on Saturday.  We haven't been on a date, in quite a while.  I can't even remember the last time we went out by ourselves. I'm kind of excited about that.  I LOVE our girls, but it will be nice to have a date night.  Jeff's interview went well, and now we are just praying and waiting to hear back about the job.  I am praying for a job, that pays well, so I can cut my hours back.  I so badly want to be a stay at home mom again, and though I doubt that will happen again full time, I hope to be able to only work 2-3 days per week, and still have some money. Work was stressing me out today, not so much, this is stressful, but the fact that I can do the work of 2-3 other nurses and they are getting paid, quite a bit more than me( we are talking at least $10 more).  It just annoys me and frustrates me. Which is partly why I want to drop my hours and be a stay at home mom again. I am at home relaxing watching my babies & I love every minute of it!

Relax day

Today was suppose to be a clean the house, completely day, but somehow it ended up being a chill out and relax day.  I really hate having to spend my one or two days off a week cleaning, but since I tend to work around 10hrs/day, cleaning when I get home is the last thing I want to do.  Sundays has become a day to go to my parents house and hang out and have lunch/dinner, but now we have small group with our new church on Sunday nights.  Our family day will have to change, maybe Saturdays.  I guess we will figure that out. I spend a big part of the afternoon working on a menu plan and what foods we could eat this month.  My goal is to try and use up food that is already in the house, instead of being a bunch of new food that we usually do.  I have figured out almost enough food for the whole month, between meals and leftovers.  I am actually excited. We seem to spend a ton of money on food.  Buying food for the house, and then somehow ended up going out to eat too.  Our goals is to get to the end of the month and not eat out anymore.  We only have 25 more days until we leave to PA.  I am happy about going on our little vacation to see family and friends, but I am still nervous about the flight, and the fact that I have heard rumors that the airline we are flying tend to not be nice to bigger passengers and families with small kids.  So, we will see.  My goal is to workout everyday, whether I can make it to the gym or not, just work out for at least 30 mins.  And no more Dr. Pepper.  I have started to get headaches again, and I think it is because I fell off the wagon, and landed face first. So, here is to tomorrow, day 1 with no Dr. Pepper

It's been a LONG time

Well, clearly May was not so good at blogging.  So this month I am committing to blogging more.  Last week I had three training sessions.  We started keeping track of my weight and measurements instead of just weight. So I learned something new, I have lost 22lbs since I started.  But actually I have lost 33lbs of fat and gained 11 lbs of muscles.  I was totally amazed.  Also, I had to run/walk for 12mins and see how far I could get.  I did better than I thought I would. I made it 0.73miles.  So, my goal is a 12 min mile.  It will be a challenge, but I am excited about it.  I surprised myself with the weight loss and especially about the running. I run much longer than I thought I could.  During my training I have started to work on strengthening my knees and all of the muscles I will be using during my runs. I have been working on cleaning the house today(very slow going) and working on my play list for my workouts.  I need my music to be upbeat and hard and some of my songs just weren't cutting it for me. My goal is to start going to the gym everyday, or at least running outside everyday. I have big running goals, so I need to start working toward them.  On the very happy news, Jeff has a job interview, for a job in his degree.  He really wants this job & so do I.  If he gets this job, then I can go down to part time and go to school part time, and be a stay at home mom part time!  Yay!   Well, also Jeff informed me today, that he wants another baby.  So, that is a discussion, meanwhile the other two kids are screaming and driving each other nuts outside.  The real question we need to ask ourselves is are we crazy!  And how crazy are we!
