Where did the weekend go??

Image
I can't believe that it is Monday! My weekend flew, I don't even remember what we did.

I slept in a bit on Saturday, while my hubby took our son to his baseball practice.  Then we went to Walmart for our usual grocery shopping and then back home to cook and watch movies.  I love spending time with my family this way, its very comfy & warm, especially on a cold winter day.

Sunday was a bit crazier.  My hubby planned on surprising me with my favorite breakfast treat: cheese filled crepes with fruit on top, yum!!  But, unfortunately, we have a bit of an insect problem at the moment & our exterminating solutions are not working as quickly as we would like, he had a couple of disgusting little roaches fall in the batter of the cream cheese.....he was livid!!!  Everything went in the garbage, and he sat down to relieve his anger, frustration & stress with his Call of Duty game on Xbox, oh well.  No crepes for me :(

I got up, made breakfast for all of us and then got dres…

Stubborn Cats

Well, I've had a good morning so far, just gave my son a small lecture about his grades, AGAIN, but everyone was ready early & got to school at 8 am....perfect!!

I came back home to get my workout out of the way, LOL!! Punched the bag downstairs for a bit...that worked out my arms, then jumped on the treadmill for an hour-walked mostly but jogged for the last 4 minutes. My legs are still a bit sore from yesterday's workout! Then I grabbed my mat & weights! First, worked my arms out with the weights & then down to the floor for ab work.....this is where my cats get annoying!

Each and every time my cat, Andy, sees the mat, he's there! He lies on it, tries to scratch it and stretches, rolls and rubs himself all over it....I mean, really? Doesn't he have other places to do that?  I've given both him and my other cat, Mia, plenty of other toys, blankets and beds of their own. 

Well, Andy insists on beating me to the mat.  I keep getting myself situated and e…

Let the weekend begin!

It's early, Saturday morning and I'm trying to find the motivation to get on the treadmill to log in atleast 1 mile.  I have to, my weight loss is going great so I can't stop now.  Today is going to be tough on my dedication to my diet!  We have my niece's birthday party, so I'll be surrounded by cake & snacks and who knows what else!!!  I'll have to say NO to everything unless its low or no carb!! How depressing! Although, looking at my weight go down everyday isn't depressing at all......I'll be ready for summer in no time :-D

It feels like its freezing outside, but we'll be braving the cold.  My daughter and son are both very excited to be going to their cousin's house.  They haven't been there in a long time, so yeah, they are ecstatic!!!


So my day will go a little like this: treadmill for 20-30 minutes, breakfast, shower, dress my daughter, dress my self, tell my son to shower when he gets home from baseball, we should all be ready …

Headaches all around...

Yesterday, right after school, my daughter asks to go to grandma's again.  This time I let her, didn't want an episode like the day before plus she didn't have anything other than her homework to do.  Well.....at 6pm it was time for me to head out to my Zumba class, and my husband had left to take our son to baseball practice.  I had cooked dinner, so I took a bowl of food down so my daughter can eat.  Instant frustration came over me when I found her fast asleep...at 6pm!!!! This is trouble already because when I go to send her to bed later on, she won't be tired.  Now, I'm trying to wake her up and tell her to eat her food.  She keeps turning over and ignoring me, making my frustration grow.  Her grandmother comes in the room to tell me that she had already fed her...OMG!!! So my answer was "fine, just wake her up because she can't be sleeping at this time."

I left to my zumba class really angry and stressed out.  My mother in law knows that I cook …

A Princess' Tantrum

I am always in total shock on how my 5 year old can go from my sweet little princess to an angry, screaming bratt! Yesterday was like any normal Wednesday, picked up both my kids from school, on the way home I hear the normal bickering among the 2 of them and I hear all about my daughter's day, my son shares his day in bits & pieces....she is definitely more talkative.
Now when we get home is where the mood changes.  She begins with asking if she can stay in her grandmother's house (which is the 1st floor apt). On any other day I would be fine with this, but it is Wednesday and she has ballet, and only has 1 hour to eat and get ready.  The last thing I need is for her to fall asleep....which she usually does when she visits grandma! Here come the tears and screaming.

We get upstairs to our house, and she is still going, stomping her feet, and screaming at me like if I have to listen to her...LOL!! She demands to be taken downstairs, and doesn't want me to dress her for…

Back to school!

Well, after having the kids home for a 4-day weekend, I thought going back to school this morning would be easy and non-eventful, but as usual I was wrong.

My son, as usual, leaves his homework to the last minute...with that said, I caught him finishing up spelling homework this morning...not good for him!! Then when I went to print the report he finished last night at 9pm, my printer was out of ink!! Luckily, for him, my old printer still had ink so I had to connect that and print out his report.  Do you have any idea how quickly one's blood pressure will go up in this situation?  I had to punish him, yet again, he knew that I wanted him to finish ALL homework on Friday....he was home all day! I asked him if it was all finished & he answered yes...now come Sunday and "oops, I forgot I had to do this report"; come Tuesday morning & "oops, I forgot I had this spelling to do".....really?!?  Impossible that my 12 yr old could have such bad memory...and if …

Something new.....

I have blogged a bit on Tumblr, but since many of the blogs I like to read are supported by blogger....I have decided to switch over.  I'm still new at this whole blogging thing, but am enjoying it.

 I like to write about my family and things that we may do in our daily lives or when we travel. My daughter is 5 and is in a dancing class which she loves...she also wants to cheer although we haven't started that yet.  My son is 12 and plays baseball for the town and is also in a traveling baseball team..Triple A Baseball.
My husband is a truck driver for a sanitation company and I was a routing coordinator/administrative asst at a trucking company that shut down! So, needless to say, I am currently unemployed.

For now, I take care of my kids and the house, have been thinking of a career change as I keep applying for jobs which have not called.  I think this blog writing will be good for me, especially since I am starting a diet & exercise program, so I can track it here.  I …
