Chickens running around today and I thought I would post a few tidbits of my life these past few days.
Hurricane Irene caused us to move home early from camp. It was sad to leave camp but it was nice to come home and have an extra day and extra hands to clean.
I took the day off from work today to get the boys ready for school. It was the first time in over a year that I didn’t answer any emails from work or even acknowledged the fact that they wanted information from me. I feel like this is the first time I can put in for a day off that I actually took.
I took the boys back to school shopping. We bought all the supplies, 9 pairs of shorts, 6 pairs of socks, a pair of work boots, 2 pairs of jeans, a pair of sneakers, two back packs, and two NHL T-Shirts, a lunch box and two thermoses and the total came to just over $300. I think that was a fantastic day shopping and my hubby almost croaked. I guess compared to a kayak it was money well spent.
My hubby is reading my blog now. It has been almost two years since I started and now I have to worry about things that I say about him.
My hubby is the greatest guy in the world…this is for his benefit not mine.
Peanut is a freshman in high school this year. He is playing football for his high school and made first string. I am so proud of his determination. I just hope that he keeps making us proud.
Jelly, who is not an athletically inclined child, decided that he would go out for track this year. It is his senior year. My hubby wonders why he decided this year to do it. I don’t. The team is going to Disney for a meet this year and Jelly thinks that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
We have never taken the kids to Disney.
Butter starts school tomorrow. I am worried sick that with both boys in sports at the other school, he will be spending too much time by himself at home. I am an hour away and the hubby is working a second job so that means some nights he may be home for three hours by himself. Ugh! Sick, I tell you sick.
I joined weight watchers. I found that I have gained 15 pounds in the last 2 ½ years and that makes me sick as well. I tried so hard to lose the 60 pounds before, to gain 15 back is heartbreaking. This time I feel like I get it. I am down over 6 pounds in the last four weeks. At this rate I will be back to the weight I want to be by the time I take the hubby on our 20th anniversary trip.
I still don’t know where to take the hubby that won’t break the bank but will still be romantic.
That’s it for now…I am not going to ramble on and on because at this rate I could.
