Update on real life

A lot has been going on around here, as I have eluded, and I can't really make things clear just yet. ***(see note) Things are in a big state of flux. There was excitement, and fear, and now the high is wearing off and reality is setting in. I don't like the reality. Not one bit. It pisses me off and makes me really cranky. When I get something in my head, I want to ATTACK it. Really GO for it and just get it done. I guess things can't always work like that. I know I'm impatient, and it's something I have to work on, but dammit, I'm pissed off right now.

*breath in. breath out*

Moving on to some family news. Little Thing 2 fell right on his little face Friday night and chipped his beautiful front tooth. He's totally fine. The dentist checked him out and said he was ok. But, it looks awful. I call it his hobo-tooth. I know it's just a baby tooth, and he's going to lose it, but I already can't wait for it to fall out. It'll probably take another 4 years. Hobo-tooth is here to stay. Yuck.

Thing 2 also took his very first steps all by himself. He was outside with the hubs, and he shook loose of my husbands hand and just went for it. He took 3 steps, looked up with a huge hobo-tooth grin, and promptly fell on his tush. So freakin cute, I can't stand it. My baby is growing up.

My eating has been spotty. It has not been great, but not terrible. I am tired of beating myself up for it. I won't allow myself to get crazy, but it's exhausting to constantly brow-beat. I know I will fall back into line.

Financially, we have made a commitment to cut our grocery bills and that is going to help our eating a LOT. I ALWAYS grocery shop well, it's the little stops here and there in between for the junk that kills us, money wise and calorie wise. So, there will be no more of that at all. We are getting bills under control, and in a hurry. We have things to do and places to go. I am looking out for my family, and our well-being as a whole. I know what to do to get that done, and it just can't happen fast enough for me.

Had a great workout at my gym on Saturday. It was "similar" to (but not NEARLY as awesome!) my Tuff Girl workouts. I was stoked, because I thought it was a new addition to the classes at the gym, but alas they were "just trying it out". They said maybe there would be another before the holidays. Oh. Boy. Big. Deal. So, I'll be going to gym till the membership runs out. (pretty sure we have 6 months left) and we will NOT be renewing, strictly because of the cash. I can workout at home. I have some fab DVD's I haven't even tried yet. I'm excited to dive into them. I will be working out tonight, and also getting some housework done while the hubs is off at rehearsal. I know he loves the show he is in, but I will be super happy to get him back home in the evenings. We are like ships passing in the night during the week.

UI woke up Sunday morning feeling like I did 4 weeks ago. Sick. Chest, nose congested, almost no voice to speak of (no pun intended), coughing. Had to skip out on church and choir, cause I felt terrible. I'm tired of being sick. I know I should probably go back to the doc, but I don't want to go in, pay another co-pay, for them to tell me it's just a lingering cold. Besides, I honestly don't even know when I would have the time to go.

Anyway, that is my real life update. Nothing spectacular to blog land, but lots for me.

*** (For anyone who is "wondering": no - I'm NOT pregnant!! LOL)

  1. Wow sweetie! Life seems to be crazy right now! Hurray about Thing 2 taking first steps, but *tear* about the hobo tooth. But at least it will make for a good story when he gets older :)
