Another week gone by...

I can't believe were into spring break...The kids are home which throws my whole routine into chaos. I can't seem to find time to do anything around here, never mind more cleaning, more meals to cook and more refereeing. They are absolutely driving me nuts. Life...who knew. I never thought it could get this crazy, busy all the time, nothing is ever clean for more then 30 minutes. No time to just sit and relax...except after the kids go to bed and by then I'm so tired I just want to go to bed...I feel like I'm on a merry go round that just won't slow down or stop to let me off.

Anyway...I find I'm not eating on schedule, which always leave it's mark. I'm not going near that scale until...the next time I weigh in. Friday I guess, maybe, we'll see...ahhhh I don't know. I guess we'll see when Friday gets here. So nothing is planned for the rest of the week, which is not a good thing. I started this week with everything planned, all meals and what I needed to accomplish everyday. I have the Salvation Army picking up on Thursday and I still have clothes to go through in the basement, which should be done already according to my plan. Why do all my plans go out the window....?????

Ah, life goes on...
Make it a good one...

Feeling Better...

Well this whole week has been a little off. Feeling better...then not so good, it's been like that all week. Yesterday I woke feeling so much better though and that lasted all day. Today I am back...I feel like me again. I did my weigh in.

Down 2.6lbs
28.5 lbs to go.

Probably due to me being sick and not eating as much as I should have been. Anyway...back to the grindstone. I have been so craving spaghetti and meatball stoup...I think I'll do that tonight and head back to total low carb tomorrow. The rest of the week hasn't been anything spectacular. Really have to start writing everyday again. Time just seems to get away from me. With all the packing and organizing...oh and the shopping. Our dining room is loaded with stuff. We got rid of our old table...and I mean old...lol Now we have a new set of bunk beds and 2 loft beds from Ikea...but I found them second hand and they look brand new...half price. We have a new table sitting in it's box. All my new pots and pans are boxed up. I bought matching duvet covers and pillowcases for the girls room.

I talked my daughter out of painting her room green...yay me. I told her she could by pillows and her duvet cover and maybe a rug in green. My son doesn't care about the color as long as it isn't pink, which it is right now...lol. I'm still trying to figure out how to fit the bunks, 2 dressers and a bookshelf into the girls room. I don't think there going to fit. I guess we'll see.

That's all for now...
Make it a good one...

24 hr flu

Well it went through all the kids who was I to think it would skip me. I just figured after a week of cleaning up and taking care of 4 sick kids one after another I would get a break. Well my break was Saturday. Hubby and I left the kids with Gramma and went out with some friends. Got home late as usual...3:20am. Well I woke at 5:38am and headed for the bathroom. Well what a horrible day. I felt so sorry for my kids because I didn't realize just how much there little tummies were hurting. It was awful and I just wanted to die...really.

Woke up this morning a little better. Really light headed...explainable, couldn't even keep water down. Tummies still a little queasy, so the thought of food is not very appetizing. Will think about eating later. Put down some water just not over doing it today. Still drinking the same cup of coffee I started at 8 this morning. The day can only get better right.

Oh god and to top everything off, my 3 year old - Dilyn - decided on Saturday while Gramma was NOT watching her...GRRRRRRR. That her bangs were too long. We had this problem a year ago and have kept the scissors up in the cupboard...well someone forgot to put them up. And voila a new choppy do:(

All for now...
Make it a good one...

We got the house...

Thank you all for your well wishes...

We got the house...YAY! Now comes the packing and organizing and down sizing. Living in the same place for 10 years sure accumulates a lot of crap. Especially the basement, it seems that everything we didn't want got put down there. Everything we didn't know what to do with got put down there. Everything we have been meaning to get rid of...like my sons clothes, 10 years worth. I also have a ton of clothes from the girls. I need to figure out which ones I want to get rid of and which ones I want to pack away for my other 2 daughters. Oh so much to organize...I don't even know where to start. Ohhhh....and then on top of it all, we have boxes of canning stuff that came from my mother-in-law. Why she dumped it here is beyond me...I don't can...I will never can. I think she had it in her head that she would come over here and WE would do some canning. She always canned a ton of cabbage leaves for cabbage rolls. She just seems to forget that I have 4 KIDS!!!!! Who has time to can? Not me:)

I am looking forward to throwing out some dressers and our table and chairs. All new ones yay:)

I really haven't been doing to great with my low carb eating. I think I am going to skip my weigh in tomorrow. Next week I'll go back to my strict eating and get the couple pounds, I'm sure I gained...off!! I guess we'll see what stress next week brings...hopefully none...except all the packing that needs to done.

Make it a good one:)

Been a while...

I think I've been avoiding writing, just like I seem to be avoiding a lot of stuff. I can't seem to keep to my diet...it's just the house thing. It's our dream and our dream house. It's something I want so badly for my family and the not knowing is killing me, my hubby too. I can feel my anxiety...panic attacks. It's crazy, I have never felt like this before.

So my eating isn't crazy or anything...I'm just not eating. A little here and there, but I did have some chips yesterday...just a few. I find that I want to eat, I make the food but then I'm not hungry. A few bites and I'm done. I am craving pasta, haven't had that craving if a while. I think I'll just wing it this week and get right back on plan when all this house stuff is over. Till then the thought of eating is repulsive. I know it will be over soon, but till it is....my life is up in the air.

The inspection was done yesterday. there was a crack in the foundation, so the sellers knocked back the price so we could get it fixed. Other then that it's all cosmetic. A bit of work and it's all good...now it's the stupid bank...why are they taking so long to get back to us. We have really never had much good luck with financial issues. Things have been changing though. The past few years have been good.

It's hard to get past though...the feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Make it a good one:)

Not eating...

So I have been having problems eating...I know it's stress and nerves. We have fallen in love with a house and made a bid on it. That's why I'm not eating, the thought of food upsets my stomach. All I want is a smoke and I quit a year ago...funny the way the body works and your mind thinks when your completely stressed out. We do the offer counter offer thing tomorrow. So hopefully all will go well and then things will calm a bit...but only a bit. We still have the inspection which should go good but we know there are a few things that are iffy...Ahhhhhhhhh...so much roaming around in my tired brain. Haven't been sleeping either...4 a night for the past 2 nights. 6 the night before that. I keep telling myself not to worry so much but I have always been a bit of a worry wart, and when were talking such big money...well it just plain freaks me out...anyway will keep you updated...cross your fingers...:D

Make it a good one:)

Sooooo Busy...

Sorry, it's so hard to find time to get to my computer when everyone's home. The kids all have teacher's convention and then my hubby decided to take off Thursday and Friday so he could spend some time with them. So in between all the activities we have also been driving around looking at the outside of a lot of houses. It's so hard to find one that you like everything about. ?We had found one and had an appointment to view and then were informed that it was sold. Was a little sad...really loved it:(

So we have 5 viewings tonight and 3 more tomorrow so far. I guess we'll see.

The diet has been good except I took a cheat day yesterday...It was our anniversary and we went to The Olive Garden...yuuuuummmm.

Make it a good one:)
