It’s been a busy month so far

I’ve been extremely busy. And with that, I’ve had to neglect a few things. One of them being my blog. I didn’t mean it, but it just sort of happened.  Now that things have calmed down (at least a little bit) I feel like I can sneak in a little update here and try to catch up on blogs that I read.

The husband left on Friday for Texas for a week and I miss him like mad!! Talking on the phone is great, but it’s not the same when I want to snuggle up next to him when I go to bed. The 10th cannot get here fast enough.

My Mom arrived from Arizona on Sunday!!  So that has been nice. She loves her in-law apartment and has started to settle in nicely. And her dog, Izzy, is super adorable. I have gotten into the routine of walking her when I get home from work and again before I go to bed. Just around the yard for a bit, but she enjoys it. I was hoping to take her to the dog park this weekend, but it’s going to rain. We need it, so I’m not going to complain.

And I’ve managed to hit the gym two days this week before work. I’ve gotten up at 4:30am! I’m pretty impressed with myself. I’m not sure what is driving me to do it, but I’m happy. Maybe because I’m sick of feeling so frumpy and uncomfortable in my skin and wanted to get back into my skinny clothes? I don’t know, but I’m happy with it. Hopefully I’ll continue with the gym routine.

That’s about it for now. Tuesday the hubby and I will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary together as a couple.  I think we’re going to go out to dinner or something simple since it’s a weeknight, but it should be fun.

What have you been up to?

How long have you been with your spouse/significant other?

Time to get back on the wagon

My Mom will most likely be here in two weeks. She is leaving Arizona on April 30th (the 29th if she can push it up a day) and I have yet to get the in-law apartment cleaned up. It needs a good carpet cleaning and dusting for sure.  The husband leaves for Texas on May 3rd (I’m not going this time around) and I’ll be alone when my Mom arrives, so I want to make everything looks great.

So far my favorite thing to do when I get home and have the house to myself is do a little cleaning. We’ve only “officially” been here for 5 days, but I like the fact that I’m not sitting in front of the tv and laptop like I was in the apartment. And as soon as we can, we’re going to start getting the yard cleaned up. It’s full of sticks and needs a good healthy clean up. Probably not until the middle of May and once the husband comes back from his work trip.

May 14th the husband and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversary together so that is a big deal. We started dating on May 14th, 1993. We’re old.

I’m ready to jump back into the whole losing weight thing now that we’ve moved and are trying to settle in. I haven’t gained anything. The scale is still packed, but it’s time to get serious again. I have the counter space and the room to start preparing my meals again. So bring it.

I haven’t run since Sunday, so I am going to try and hit the gym tomorrow morning. Cross your fingers for me. I need to get some weight lifting in.

I’m also addicted to the new show “Hannibal”. It’s so freaky.

What new show do you love this season?

Last work out?
