Merry Christmas

2014 is right around the corner and I PROMISE I am going to be a much better blogger.

Pinky swear!!

Hopefully 2014 will be the year I (finally) get pregnant but until then I plan on losing weight and all the stuff everyone else says they want to do for the new year.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday. I promise to post more about that, too!

Guess what? I enjoyed “The Sound of Music Live” last night! So there! Was Carrie Underwood a fantastic actress? But neither am I so I’m not going to complain about it. I watched it and sang along to all the songs and laughed and giggled and enjoyed it.

It wasn’t the same. It was based off the broadway show and not the movie. I kept expecting Stephen Moyer to start looking for Sookie (if you watch “True Blood” you understand) and for his vampire teeth to pop out. But it was FUN! It was a live musical and it was good! The singing was AMAZING! I wish I could sing like that.

And who knew that the Laura Benanti from “Go On” could sing like that???

benanti21I didn’t get to see the entire thing because if I stay up past 10pm on a weeknight I turn into a pumpkin, so I had to findĀ  “Edelweiss” tonight. It was awesome. Of course, I still love Christopher Plummer’s version but it was still great.

Oh hi!!

Why yes, yes I am the world’s worst blogger in the world. And I’m so sorry.

1455941_10151713833573414_1081526311_nHere I am last week at Thanksgiving. We hosted the family and I was super excited. Do you like my apron? I wasn’t unhappy with this picture when my sister posted in on Facebook. I don’t LIKE the way I look, but I’ve been heavier. A LOT heavier. My weight didn’t matter. What mattered was that we had fun, that the turkey came out FANTASTIC. That my family had a good time. And that I didn’t binge on a holiday for the first time in I don’t remember how long. That is my husband in red carving the turkey and my nephew in the hat making the gravy. I was so tired by the end of the night. I swear I felt hungover on Friday morning but no booze was consumed on Thanksgiving.

Speaking of being binge free, I have been binge free since April 1st, 2013. I’m pretty impressed with that. I realize what a big deal that is for me and I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve started the process to find out why I haven’t gotten pregnant yet. It’s not a BAD thing, but it’s frustrating, too. Today I had a procedureĀ  that was not very comfortable. It left me feeling a little faint and sweating. I can handle pain pretty well, but not this time. I don’t want to complain about it because these are things that NEED to be done. And I want a baby so badly.

This husband is in Texas on a work trip right now. It’s tough with the holidays and I miss him so badly. He comes back on Saturday.

I found out yesterday I have 38 hours of vacation time I need to use (that is a week people) or I’m going to lose it by the end of the year. I think I can take another week off this month. Christmas week sounds good.

I switched to the gym that is in my town and I am so glad! It’s the same gym, just closer. I don’t know why I didn’t. It’s 3.5 miles away. It takes me 5 minutes to get there and it’s never busy.

I’m nerding out about “The Sound of Music” tonight. I grew up loving that movie and watching it with my Mom every year. I can’t wait to watch it.

If you celebrated Thanksgiving last week how was it?

Do you like “The Sound of Music”?
