Reluctant Blogger!

I don't know what's going on with me, but each day I sit down at my desk, ready to compose a post...and nothing. I'm just not in the mood to blog lately. I have been reading yours and each day I wait for inspiration, but nothing. I apologize for my non blogging.

Christmas was great. We had a wonderful time with our family. My hubby got me a Kindle Fire, LOVE it!! And I got lots of wonderful things. John was sick though on Christmas Day and on Monday and wasn't able to have dinner with us or anything, it was terrible. He's better now, but it was an awful stomach bug, what a way to spend the little bit of time he gets off.

I have lots to tell about the meetings with the life coach I was telling you about, but that will be a long post, so I'll have to do that one later. Our kids are doing well, we are enjoying the time off from school. And today is our 5th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe it's been 5 years. John brought me lunch at my office today and he said, I can't believe it either...it seems much longer. Then he said, really, I feel like we've always been together. What a sweet heart. I have so much to be thankful for. He's a very patient and wonderful man, he has put up with a lot of crap from me! Poor thing! But all in all, I think we've done pretty darn well. I'm happy and so glad I'm married to him!

I did not even try to eat well over the holidays, I just enjoyed myself. I threw up several times, so I felt like it wasn't as bad as it could have been, but....Oh the sweets!!!! I'm up 4 pounds....Oh well, I don't think it's going to stick for long. I was telling my son last night, that when I was really fat, nearly 300 pounds, I could eat cookies all day and night, gain 15 pounds and never feel any fatter than I did the day before, but now that I'm just "less" fat, it's a whole different story. If I eat badly one day and go up a pound....or 4...Holy Cow, it feels like 40 and I'm not joking. I'm so ready for the New Year, I love the fresh start, the commercials on TV about all the latest exercise and diet items...it keeps it in my mind more. I'll leave you with a pic of me an my sweet hubby. I'm a lucky girl! If you're reading John, Happy Anniversary...I love you!

Happy Wednesday All, and Happy New Year!
Big Hugs,

A quick post!

I'm sorry guys, but I suck at blogging lately. I've been really busy and quite frankly a little unmotivated. This is a crazy time of year for everyone. I thought I'd share a couple of cute pictures of my boys on Ugly Sweater day at school.



This is my youngest on the right, check out the goofy face and our neighbor is the other boy.





This is my oldest son and couple of his friends.

I'm hoping that with the new year will come some new inspiration. I had my first meeting with the life coach and will be meeting with him again over the weekend. It was very informative, I think it left me with a better understanding of what motivates me, and I'm looking forward to him giving me some advice on how to implement some changes in the near future. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet! Oh Lordy, I guess I'll be busy this weekend. I hope you all are doing well, I'm reading... Take care!


Big Hugs!

The other members of our family.

Hey guys, hope your day is going well. I've introduced you to my family on my blog many times over, but just realized that I've never introduced you to the four-legged members of our family. So, here's a quick post to show you the two dogs in our family. They are my step dogs, they were part of the package when I married John, so I've been their Mama for 5 years this month.



This is Jessie (affectionately referred to as Cujo!) She is a Dachshund, Rat Terrier mix....trust me, that is a bad combination. She is very, very territorial and protective of me! John can't kiss me without her going crazy on us! She's a very smart dog, but definitely fierce. Anytime we have guests, she has to be put in her kennel.


And this is Runner Dog! The sweetest dog on the planet. I kid you not. You cannot not fall in love with this dog. He is so sweet. He's a mixed breed and we don't know the combo, but we like to say he's a Cha-wiener, because I know he's got Dachshund in him and Chihuahua too. He loves to snack, and sleep and be loved on....I adore this dog!


So, while thinking about these wonderful creatures today, I realize that the dogs are representative of my mood swings...my "split personality" if you will. Ha, I really can be sweet, but I can also be Cujo.


Hope you have a great day!

Big Hugs,

T

Hey y'all!

Well, hey there! How's it going? Ive been absent for sure from my blog, but I've been reading yours and trying to get some inspiration for a blog post. Since inspiration has yet to come, I figure I'll just give you a quick update and a few pics. So, here goes:



  • We hosted my office Christmas party last Friday at our house. It was fun, we had a great turn out. This Friday , I'm hosting the Christmas party for the club that puts on the Variety Show I'm in each Summer. The following weekend we are hosting the Hubby's office party. Busy, busy!

  • My baby turned 15!!!! My oldest will be 18 in less than 2 weeks. I'm feeling a little old!

  • I'm on day 4 of my new thyroid meds. I'm still feeling about the same though.

  • Yesterday, it was 72 degrees here, today it's expected to freeze! Crazy weather!

  • I cut my husband's hair at 4am today...WTF?

  • I think my funk has lifted. I'm feeling pretty darned good right now!

  • My weight is still the same. Some days, I feel really good about myself, some days, not so much....so things are pretty much the same!

  • I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet!

  • Today, I finally gave in to the crave for a McD's egg nog shake. It was not worth it. But it is definitely out of my system now!

I guess that about covers things. I'll leave you with a few pics from the office party.


I hope you guys are doing well. I'm not too worried about the holidays. I'm hoping to start losing again, but we all know it takes more than hoping!


Take care,


Big Hugs!

Me and my oldest son, my youngest went to his girlfriend's house instead of coming to the party, I guess he's really growing up!


My sister, my step daughter, me, my two nephews (poking their noses in from behind)
