So here we are in NC beautiful weather nice house and what's hubz doing...playing video games. He says I've been on the computer all day, um yeah fine but besides being on the NEST I'm also trying to do homework. And at least being on the computer doesn't require me to be in a whole seperate room ignoring family. If I wanted that I could have stayed home. So now I'm working on more homework, oh the joy of school work on holidays, and making him peel potatos for the dinner we're responsible for tonite. My guess is he thought I was going to cook the whole thing. Ummmm...hello did I mention I had a migraine! WTF I cook dinner every nite at home, except Tuesday b/c I have school, you can't be bothered to help out for one nite on vacation. REALLY?!!!

Oh the Pain

I started working out on Monday, Tae-Bo, it wasn't too bad and I was only a little sore yesterday. They yesterday I was back at the 30 Day Shred, damn I'm out of shape, and today my body is sore, sore, sore! It's okay though I know I have to push through the pain and it'll get better, at least that's what I'm hoping. I haven't been impressed by the Jillian Micheals website I registerd for and now I'm sad that I wasted the money. I think I might just cancel and only be out the $20.

In other news I got my math mid-term back last nite, got a B. I'm a little upset with my self b/c it could have been a hight B, but I'm just going to keep that in mind for the final since there's nothing I can do about the mid-term.

It's my last day of work for 5 days!!!! We're headed to the beach with hubz' family. I can't wait for the break. Of course I have a project and homework prolems to do for math and paper due for Law but hey I'll get it done and still enjoy my mini-vacation! I still plan to workout while I'm there too. We're leaving Thursday so I'll try to get my 30 Day Shred in before we leave then I'll bring Tae-Bo with me for Friday and Monday. Saturday and Sunday I've reserved for walking so that shouldn't be too hard to get in and I figure the ladies can maybe join me while we leave the kids with the boys! Hopefully I'll have tons of pictures to show when I return.

Weight Loss

So I've been saying for two weeks now that I was going to start working out and eating better. Here I am two weeks later and I've put on more weight! That's it I'm done. Getting dressed for work today I put on a shirt I wore just last week and is now to tight! Seriously! So I just signed up for Jillian Michaels weight loss plan, it's $4/week, $52/quarter and even if I decide I don't like it they're keeping a non-refundable $20 for a five week minimum so for the next 5 weeks at least I'm getting serious. I think after 5-weeks it'll such a part of me that even if I decide to cancel it won't matter b/c I'll still continue doing what I was doing, at least that's what I'm hoping. I just can't take being fat! I won't be that girl with the giant gut wearing a two piece, thanks but no thanks. I talk about those girls I don't want to now be the girl being talked about.

Five years ago today I graduated from college. The four years I spent in Tampa are some of the most memorable of my life. I made friends that I still keep in touch with today. However, I look at my life five years later and I wonder how I got to this point. And I wonder why every few months I get to this same point where I wonder how my life got to this point. I have a great husband, a house that I own and job that pays well, but I can't seem to feel like somewhere I lost track. Track of who I am and what I used to want. And if what I used to want is what I still want. I never wanted to be a mom, but now it's really the only thing I can think of. I used to want to be a lawyer but now I'm gearing myself more towardsthe rinance field. I just can't help but think about how things have changed in the last five years.

Thursday, Friday

Today's Friday!!!! At lease it is for me because I'm off tomorrow which my weekend offically starts this tonite and I couldn't be happier. It's been a long two weeks at work and it's just gearing up for our busy season, summer, so I expect to even more exhausted as time progresses. The silver lining I have lots of mini-vacations with and without hubz scheduled through out the next couple of months.

Expect for Strawberry picking on Saturday, which I SO EXCITED for, we have no big plans for the weekend. House stuff as usual, with a sprinkle of school and Mother's day festivities on Sunday. I already have all the Mother's day cards, except one, and I just have to do gifts for my mom and sisters. Hubz mom is all done and we already know what we're getting his step-mom we just have to pick it up. Besides Septemeber, when there's a birthday every day except for maybe seven, Mother's Day is the next most expensive day for us as far as cards go. Thank goodness for Hallmark and my rewards card.

In unrelated news my work as blocked Facebook. I'm so sad but really just figured it was only a matter of time. Now I actually have to work or find some other way to waste time. Maybe I'll try focusing more on the latter.

Take It Back

Have you ever told someone something that you wish you could take back? That's how I'm feeling about this whole baby thing. I wish that I hadn't felt the need to share it with everyone because now people want to know if we are, when we're gonna be or how come we're not. AHHHHHHH!!!! I know it's what I get for being an over sharer, but I resolve to do better not to be.

In other non-baby realted news, b/c I feel like lately that's all I blog about, Mother's Day is coming up and my sisters and I have the best gift! We're getting tickets to go see The Color Purple with our mom. Of course she's trying to rain on our parade by buying ticktes herself but we're all over it. We're going to dinner with her Friday, b/c my youngest sister will be in Richomond with her boyfriend on Sunday, and will give her the tickets then. I'm so excited I've had this planned since Christmas when I found out The Color Purple would be here.

Sunday hubz, the step-son and I have brunch plans with the rest of hubz siblings for his mom and then dinner with my mom and other sister and best friend at my house Sunday nite. Something just has to be planned for hubz' step-mom and that covers all the moms. I tell you what his multimarrying family can be a little exhausting. At least with my family it's one mom and one dad and that's it. When it comes to siblings his family's even worth b/c there's so damn many of them. I have my 2 sisters and brother, he has 3 sisters and 4 brothers and not all from the same's exhausting! But such is the life I married into, it definately never allows for a dull moment.

I have a slight addiction to the nest and the bump and they both started with my addiction to the knot. My addicition to the nest doesn't really affect me all that much. It's a place for me to get decorating ideas for our house and to find out things going on in the area that I may not have known about. However, the bump addiction kind of hurts my heart. Why? Well, simple it's all about people having babies, okay not completely but for some reason those are the boards I focus on. And yet here I sit still not pregnant. The window of opportunity is slowly closing until October and there's nothing I can really do, short of jumping the hubz more which I'm working on. I've said it once and I'll say it again it's not fair that I did everything the way I was suppose to and now that it's finally my turn to have a baby and I'm ready, I can't. WTF!!!!!
