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!

Sunday, January 3, 2010 last!

Today we went for groceries followed by a whole day of cleaning (and keeping kids entertained) My husband did the 2 bottom levels and I did the top 2...and the kids clinged to me as usual as I tried to get stuff done. I did manage to prepare meals and snacks for the week ahead..need to stick to healthy eating so, I prepared fruit cups, veggies in individual bags, healthy banana bread and rice krispie squares (not healthy..but, we had so many xmas rice krispies left...)

I purposely kept the kids awake all day w/out needed naps because I am really looking forward to them passing out right I type this they are slowly running out of steam from chasing each other around the couch!

Happy New Year!!!
So, here we are 2010....hard to believe.
My son drew this picture of a goldfish yesterday after watching an episode of Mr. Maker...he amazes me. He watches the show, goes upstairs and draws this from memory. He's 4 years old and, I admit, can outdraw me on anything.
We are all doing nothing today...mommy & daddy are quite tired from a late night with friends. Kids are wide awake after having a good night sleep at grandma & papa's house.
