Been a while....

I have abandoned my blog for a couple months ,unfortunately,is just like me to procrastinate.

Family is great, I'm loving how we are well into spring *although today you wouldn't think so* crazy how we go from a high of 27 to this weather!
Work....same i guess.....
What is new? I finally got laser eye surgery last week and after a very long week with some common side effects I finally am seeing (in both senses) what a great decision it was! My vision is 20/ still feels so surreal waking up and not having to reach for my glasses..
Also, I am trying to find natural ways to deal with my anxiety has been a long battle trying to get it under control. I have dealt with anxiety as far back as I can remember but after having my 1st child it really increased. I have been on medication for the past 4 years and finally am off it. It's been very hard dealing with anxiety and I haven't been very successful. I started acupuncture treatment last week after researching its effect on anxiety. The results, so far, have been very positive. Usually when I go off medication I will have an anxiety attack by the 2nd day..this time...i have gone 5 days w/out medication and NO attacks!!...and this week has been stressful with the headaches and side-effects of eye surgery. I really see the light and think I can have control over this.
It will make such a difference in being a mom/wife.....if i can 'breathe' through the stressful times then everyone (and myself) will be better off.
My baby boy just turned 5 last month...a little tough...I have a 5 year old!!!..he had a great birthday, a perfect day.
My baby girl turns 3 next month, I can't believe how fast time has gone by...I just want to keep them at this age forever..
I'm done having babies so it seems especially hard...the odd time part of me will want another but it quickly passes...i know i'm done. I'm such a crazy planner (thanks to anxiety) that I would be so worried over everything involved in having,sleeping arrangements, daycare...etc,etc...2 kids is great...we have a complete family..along with our 2 cats!
I'm off to sleep....going to be a yucky weekend and I'm going to catch up on some very neglected housework and spend some time with husband & kids..

The Beach

I've been back for a week from our wonderful week away in Punta Cana. We were married there 1 year ago and happily spent our 1st anniversary back in this wonderful place. Spent some quality time w/hubby and left the kids with Grandma. Weather was perfect, high of 32degrees every day...not a drop of rain. A week was a perfect time away...all we did was swim,eat,drink &'s so nice when your biggest decision of the day is 'beach or pool'...and your workout is swimming across the pool to order a, back to reality.

Stages of a Breakdown

Mondays are a very tough night for my kiddos..they are exhausted after a long day at school/daycare.
Here are a few pictures of my lovely dd, she went from crazy silly to kind of strange calm to uncontrollable crying!! all within maybe 5 minutes...this, unfortunately, is normal for her..she is either super happy or super mad...has a fiery temper and a contagious, she's fast asleep in bed getting ready for a new day full of lots of laughs and an equal amount of tears!

So, I've missed a few days....I was aiming for the picture a day for 365 days but...i'm going to keep going.

Right now is a crazy time...with working full-time and studying for an exam in a couple weeks...oh, and trying to lose weight..i haven't had much time to upload pics on here.

Here is a pic of me & my how yummy they smell when they get out of the bath into their jammies!!!

I will try to post each day but...i have 2 weeks until i write and exam, 3 weeks before i leave on vacation & i want to lose 10 pounds in these 3 weeks!!! I'm such a procrastinator..i had a whole year to study and kept putting it off, and the weight also...should have been off a year ago!!!

I won't be going out much in the next couple weeks so, pics will probally be kind of boring!!

Sick Day

Today...I accomplished nothing. I woke up late...struggled to get myself & the kids ready, got them to daycare and drove myself home & called in sick. Yes, I did have a was sick but, if I had a better start to the morning I probally would have toughed it out. Truth is, I couldn't find anything to wear. Only 2 pairs of dress pants fit me...oh, i so need to lose weight...and the only 2 pairs i have were dirty!! Yes, I should go buy new pants but, I have so many pairs 1 size smaller. So, I crawled back into bed at 9am until 1pm!! Then watched a movie and picked the kids up. Tomorrow, will be a better day..i did some laundry & it's friday!!

Here's a couple pics of the son & his BEN 10 collection (he is absolutely crazy for Ben 10!) and my daugher being silly b/f bedtime!

Trip Tickets arrived!!

So, today was a rather blah morning at work, weather sucked,...then my travel agent emailed me my Tickets for our upcoming trip...this brought my mind to the warm beach...a whole week away without the kids...ahhhhh.
So, my 'picture' for today is of my hotel always feels more real that you have an upcoming trip once you actually get the 'proof'.

Here is a picture of the resort we are headed to: is a picture of our wedding last January 31st in Punta Cana...can't wait to spend our 1st anniversary in the same place (different resort)...

Thank Goodness for KD

So, monday..back to work/school...1st day of the 'year' and my husband is sick w/stomach flu. So, tonite (after picking up the kids) I wasn't in the mood to cook when it was just the 3 of us. I am really trying to watch what I am eating, have some weight to lose and a trip to the dominican quickly approaching. I have rid the house of all junk food except last nights rice krispie squares....So, mommy ate too many rice krispies for supper and kids had KD (not any KD..the white cheddar..makes it seem a little better). Tonite, I'm torn between gym & a movie with my sister...both would have to be after 9pm b/c daddy is gone to bed for the pics aren't very inspiring today as monday nights I always have tired children who just feel like sitting around watching t.v!
