Small changes

DIET! UGH! I hate that word...and yet...I so badly need to do it. I mean REALLY! plan is this..making little changes. This past week I switched from regular pop to diet pop, drinking more water, and drinking some milk. I was raised drinking milk and LOVE milk...but somehow I got away from drinking it. so..I am going to try to drink a glass a day.

My plan for this coming week is to start watching portion control and if I am not full on the smaller portions to fill up on healthy stuff. A salad or piece of fruit to fill the void, I suppose. As I was eating this week...everytime I pust something on my plate I was VERY aware of how much I was eating and how I could make it much smaller. So..the plan is not to deprive myself of the yummy food that REALLY LOVE so much...just to eat less of it. :)

If I am feeling adventurous I may start exercising this week too....or I might leave that for next weeks change. LOL I bought the Walk Away the Pounds videos about a year ago and have never even removed the plastic. LOL In my head...I think that I would like to get up about 7 am and exercise while the rest of the house is asleep. But I don't know what the odds of that actually happening are. I usually sleep until one of the little darlings wakes me up!

I have NO idea how much I weigh...and don't know if I WANT to know...but I imagine I will weigh myself just for reference. My main concern is how I feel though. I want to feel energetic and feel like playing with my boys. they are SO full of energy and I know as they get older they are going to want to do more active things. Logan has told me that he wants to ice skate and snow board. I don't know how to ice skate..but would love to learn and be able to take him...and my friend Leesa snowboards with her husband and they have so much fun. If I wasn;t such a big slug...that might be something I would like to learn too...or at least try once. LOL

UGH!! This thing is driving me nuts!!! (speaking of driving me nuts...K watches this show called "robot chicken" and one of the "bits" they had on was a pirate with a steering wheel attached to the front of his pants...and the pirate says, "ARRRGGH! It's drivin' me nuts!!!!" I say that something is driving me nuts...I think of that. LOL)

ok..back to my interesting gameboy story. We bought Logan a Gameboy for Christmas. Now, I had a gameboy 8 years ago it was a tiny little black and white screen and playing it made my head hurt. So I gave it to my BIL. This NEW and improved Gameboy ROCKS! It's a little color screen and playing it is MUCH MUCH better than that thing I had. ANYWAY...I bought a new game for Logan from someone on cheapcycle. It is a Crash bandicoot game. So, I started playing it and I could actually DO it. I'm not very video game inclined and I pretty much suck at every game I have ever tried to play. I was so excited. so I have been playing this game and I have gotten to a point where I just can't get through the level. I try and try and try. My thumbs hurt from playing it so much (and holding the buttons too hard, I'm sure), I get so aggravated at I scream, I sigh in frustration, I stomp my feet....and yet, I continue to play the blasted thing. That HAS to mean there is something wrong with me right?!?! I should just put the thing away and never touch it again..but I CAN'T. I just CAN'T.

To add insult to injury Kyle has started playing it and is about 5 levels ahead of me now. he offered to help me today and get through the level i was stuck on for me. I told him "no thanks!! I can do it myself!" HA!

worried about Logan & school

Logan starts kindergarten next year (and Dylan will start preschool). We live in an AWFUL school district and I refuse to send him to the public school here. The plan has always been that I would go to work when the kids started school and my salary would cover tuition. Well, that was before K lost his job. Now, I am going to have to work just to make ends meet. Even when K gets another job..he still won't make what he was making before...not even my salary will have to go to help sustain the household..not pay for tuition. It makes me sick to my stomach and I don't know what to do about it. :(

I am toying with the idea of moving to a better school district...we would have to rent something...because no way could we buy another house with our credit and money situation. Of course now my mom lives 4 doors down and I hate the thought of moving from her. I HATE the idea of moving at all!1 I swore I would never move again.

Right now, My MIL and mom pay for Logans preschool. one pays one month and then the other one pays the next month. Next mom will be unable to help at all because her money situation is getting ready to drastically change.

It's just frustrating and makes my stomach hurt. I really just don't know what to do.

5 weird things about me

Cindy tagged me...I feel so loved! BAH! lol

ok...5 weird things about me. Gee...I don't know that I can come up with 5 things..I mean, I'm such a NORMAL person!! I'll try though!! ;)

1)My towels have to be folded the right way (my way) or it makes me a little bonkers. When Kyle folds them I have to fight the urge to re-fold them....(while he is looking LOL)

2)I have really long hair (past my waist) and I NEVER wear it down. It is always up on my head in some type of twist. If I am feeling adventurous I migh put it in a ponytail and braid it.

3)I can't STAND spit. if I see someone spit or that spit that collects in the corners of peoples mouths...I gag. It REALLY grosses me out. probably more than anything else. LOL

4) I make spaghetti sauce with hamburger in it..I have to make it that way, but when I eat the spaghetti or lasagna...I pick the hamburger out and eat around it.

5) I like the way my dogs feet frito's!! ROFL

Blog changes

I am really really really trying to add a new skin to my blog. I have NO idea how to do it though....and I have been staring at the code for 2 days now, but am scared to mess with it. LOL SO...if you check in and see that my blog is all freaky looking...please bare with me. :)
