So we have been living in our new home for 6 months and have loved ever bit of it. I have been watching a lot of HGTV and getting ideas for the home. There is a long lists of projects I want to do for the house, we will be busy for quite some time. I can see myself here for a very long time, hopefully I won’t ever move again. Hopefully I will grow old here. I have moved so much over the years and I just want to settle down. This house is big enough for many years to come. I guess once all the kids move out it might actually be way too big for us. But that way all the grandkids can come sleep over and have their own space. I was telling Tony the other day though that with as many stairs as we have if we get old in this house we may need to get a stairlift. LOL! He actually had no idea what I was talking about. I remember watching all those commercials when I was a kid for those stairlifts and thought they were awesome. I know in the past they would have been handy when I had my kids (via c-section) and wasn’t allowed to walk up stairs, if we had a stairlift that wouldn’t have been an issue. There are many things that have been invented over the years that I think are amazing and the stairlift was a great invention. It allows those in need to now have the freedom to move around their house like they once were able to.
I have been posting on this blog for about 5 years. And I have made countless attempts to lose weight and get in shape. That was the original purpose of this blog….it was to share my life as a mom and my adventures to lead a much healthier life after giving birth to my 4 (and final) child. Life unfortunately got in the way as it always seems to do. I have exercised, counted calories, and dieted and it never seems to have a solid forever impact. I have also tried diet pills. I just can’t seem to keep off the weight and live a healthier life. Tomorrow is my birthday and I am turning 36. WOW, 36!!! It seems the older I get the more unhealthy I get. I don’t think I am gaining weight but I am certainly not losing weight. I changed jobs, working 2nd shift now, with the intentions of having more time for me….for my kids, my hobby and school. But I just seemed to add more tasks to my daily activities and NONE of that gave me time to exercise. I mean I bought a bike and we got a new puppy so I had every intention of taking a bike ride daily to give both me and my pup exercise. Hasn’t happened.
I really need to get my act in gear. My body aches all the time, my feet hurt, my back hurts…..I just always seem to be in pain. I need to make a change. I want to live to see my kids get married and have babies. I want to be around to spoil my grand children. My grandmother is 86ish years old and she seems very healthy. For my kids sake I want to lose weight and get healthy. What I need to do is listen to all those people that say “control your appetite“. I don’t think I eat a lot but I don’t eat the best. I randomly eat, sometimes I will go hours without eating and then binge eat. I also eat late at night.
I know what changes I need to make and I just need to make to to make those changes. Next semester will be different. I think I decided not to go to school which will definitely free up some time. I will also not be helping with the PTO at my kids school as much that will free up more time. I need to focus on me or I won’t be able to be there for my kids. I am going to vow to live a healthier life and exercise more.
It sure has been a long time since I last posted. Lots have been going on. Too much to post now. I will have to fill you in later though. LOL! We have been getting settled in our new house. We love love love it!!!
Tony’s garage is getting all set up. He has a bunch of tools already. He went to build a target stand the other day, and it took him no time at all because he had all the right tools. He told me he needed some more tools before the next time he made anything though. I think an l clamp might be on the list. Basically he can get what he wants because it has made making things for the house a piece of cake. LOL!
I got Frank about a week ago. I took him to the vet 4 days after I got him. WOW!! He had ring worm and round worm and one other thing. He is on medication. I am trying to get him in to a routine. He is doing well so far. I can’t wait until he is potty trained. I would like to take him on longer walks than just around the block. Maybe I will buy Tony’s car. LOL!!! If I go on longer walks, I will need some roland headphones. It would probably make going on walks a little more pleasant.
I really do love my kids school. They are so personable. My son made student of the month and each month the elementary school principal eats lunch with the students of the month.
They also rent out the school on the weekends to a church. Well maybe they don’t rent it out, I think maybe they let the church use it in exchange for any help the church may offer.
I always see a truck outside the school, they are probably unloading chairs4worship.
I love my kids school so much, I applied for a job. I hope to get a job there as a paraprofessional.
Ahh I have been on a week vacation and it has been great. I miss being a stay at home mom. I need to find a way to either work at my kids school or work from home. I am so tired of being gone open to close at my job. Today it was nice, I was driving home from taking the kids to school and I saw some cheap yard signs on the side of the road pointing me to a huge yard sale. I had nothing going on so I headed to the yard sale. It was in fact huge and they had several desks and tables I could have altered but the prices were a bit high.
It was just nice to come and go as I please and spend the day with the kids. I miss it!!!
What do I buy him? We pretty much get what we want when we want it or have the money for it. He is already getting a bunch of tools since we are moving in to our home. What he hasn’t had in a while is a nice quality pair of sunglasses. I found a place online that says custom sunglasses here. So I clicked on it and it will be a start for what I am looking for. When we met he had a nice decently expensive pair and they broke, can’t remember how long after we started dating but they were destroyed and he hasn’t had a good pair since.
Maybe that is what I will get him….who knows.
