TGIF…I think

Today is Friday. To most moms, that means a possibility that they will get at least one day to sleep in. Not at my house. If I don’t make #2 sleep in my room, he will wake up with the sun and wake up #1 & #3. In turn, I get woken up because the waking of #1 & #3 usually consists of someone screaming. To me, Friday also means two days of trying to keep my kids busy, without spending money.

Who cares if it is Friday? I couldn’t tell you the last time my husband and I had a real date. You see, he doesn’t trust anyone to be in our house to babysit and that leaves MIL & FIL. They hardly ever take them all at once. Even for major things like our birthdays and anniversay. This is because they never had a babysitter, we shouldn’t need one. Seriously?!? My marriage isn’t perfect and sometimes I jsut need to work on it! I guess it doesn’t really matter, I wouldn’t have the money to go out even if she did take them. I don’t know how, but when I finish losing this weight, I will be going out. Dressing up, dinner, drinks, my husband, and some friends (not that we really have any, but that is a whole different post…)!

I should be doing homework. Instead, I am waiting for my husband to get out of bed so that we can go to a couple of garage sales before we have to re-enroll our children for school next year. Oh, and I need to write our paychecks and do the personal checkbook. Should also do the laundry that is piling up because my energy and motivation seem to have taken a vacation without me. I really wish they would quit that!!

One of THOSE days…

Thought I was having a terrible calorie week, but when I got on the scale tonight, I had lost 2.8 pounds since Sunday! That puts me at 20.6 since the beginning of 2011. That was the best part of my day.

I have class tomorrow and didn’t get my reading done. I didn’t get any laundry done. None of my kids did anything educational. And McDonalds screwed up my pop! Oh and I realized that I have no where near enough money to pay my bills.

On the bright side, I now have two jobs booked for next week and I am waiting to hear on two more. I am excited to say this season is officially started!

This is definitely one of those random rambling nights. #2 is a difficult child. Some days I don’t know what to do with him. I can be looking directly at him and he will cause problems. As long as I keep him busy, he’s fine (for the most part), but he always gets mad because he always has to do everything.

Well, I have an 8 hour class tomorrow that starts in 7.5 hours. I guess that means it’s bedtime.

Please forgive me in advance…

Honestly, this is the first personal blog I have ever written. I would like to say that I think I will have a great deal of brilliant advice for you to take, or even some great adventures for you to read about. However, the reality is that I am an average mom of four beautiful children. Sometimes it will sound like all I do is complain, sometimes I will sound like I want to move to a new country with a new identity, but I really just want you to know that you are not alone. My main purpose for writing this is to relieve a little stress.

As moms, we are not supposed to complain about everyday things because we should be happy with our lives. After all, it was our own choice to be moms. I am happy with my life, but I also know that everyday life is stressful!! I will never use any real names in my posts. I will tell you the truth though.

Tonight, I am just planning on introducing myself. Right now, I am 27, a wife, and a mother of two boys and two girls. I met my husband during my sophomore year in high school. We have been together for most of the time since. As a senior in high school I became pregnant with our oldest girl, #1. I did graduate, but very pregnant. We married soon after graduation. One year later, our oldest boy, #2, was born. After another two years, our youngest boy, #3, was born. When #3 was five, our youngest child, #4, was born.

The main things to know about me right now are: this is my second year of having my lawn business open, my husband has a part time job, I am a full-time student working on my BLS in Social Services, my children attend a private school (this is their first year), #1 is in Girl Scouts, #2 is in a tutoring program, all three of my older children are in choir at our church, and they are also in chess. Everything else, you will learn as I come upon it all.

For now, I need to close the computer before my battery dies, put my children to bed, and attempt to do homework and laundry. Good night for now!

December 26, 2007

I told Hubby that part of the reason I do not want to have sex with him is his weight. I also told him that part of it was my weight. He tried to convince me that he looks basically the same as he did when we met. Bullshit! He probably weighs 80-100 lbs more than when we met. I weigh 40-50 lbs more. To me it is a turn off. I am going to try to put more effort into losing weight. I am also going to try to put more effort into having an intimate relationship with Hubby. No more elevators, unless there is no choice. Only one pop per day. Sex three times per week. Stairs at work every day to the top and back. 100 oz (12 cups) of water per day. Maybe this will also help Hubby get motivated. We need to do something…
