Way to quickly… It seems like just yesterday I had babies, infants, toddlers even. Now i have a 1st grader and as of today a registered Preschooler! I just can’t believe it. It’s hard to believe that i could never have another “Baby” to take care of again. We haven’t ruled out having more kids but as of now things are good and we don’t see them changing. As i sit and think about it i get a little sad, i really am going to miss my little bud. I mean sure its not like he is leaving forever but its been  just me and him at home for almost 3 years now during the day while Madie was at school and Brad at work….. I know he is going to love it, there were a lot of little boys being registered today too. So many new friends for him to make 😀 I can’t wait for him.

Preschool today,  and College tomorrow! {sigh}

So i made this last night and to my suprise it was very yummy. I changed a few things and honestly you could not tell the difference from the meatloaf i used to make with ground chuck verses this one, except for the fact that i was less salty which is a good thing! 😀

Last night we decided to put one of our computers in Madies room for the kids. We want to put a few games and educational software on there for them and we fixed it to where they can log on to “child friendly” websites and play games on there as well. I really was excited about this being the computer addicted person i am. I think they should learn the basics of a computer especially since more and more classes use them. Plus it gives us something we can use when it comes to chores,etc. Our goal is to set up a certain time for PC time,etc and if certain things have been done they get to play on the PC. The only downside to this is the fact that I’m not the best “teacher” so getting asked 100 times about the same thing isn’t fun for me, i like kids that can D. I. Y.! HAHAHA That sounds much more horrible then it really is but don’t worry i am praying for patience!!!

Ok let me be the first to say that sometimes we all deserve a little treat. Even when we are trying to eat healthier and lose weight. I think from time to time enjoying something that makes us happy is ok, as long as its just every once in a while not every 8hrs. Now with that said I want a Milky Way! Its that time of the month for me and i want chocolate. This is a huge step because normaly i want a keg of coke and 10 chocolate cakes so wanting just one little Milky Way is super awesome. I even made sure to leave enough calories and carbs available in my daily intake. I asked brad to get me one on my way home, he had school tonight so i sat there waiting on him every now and then thinking about how awesome it was going to be to enjoy it. I havent had hardly any chocolate in 3 weeks. The chocolate i did have really shouldnt be called that since its was a SMART ONES dessert thing, which you have to microwave and try to enjoy your semi defrosted “cake” which only takes 3.5 bites to finish. And i was actually ok with that. I havent even(by some awesome miracle) craved anything that i normally eat, i even passed up King cake at Brads birthday dinner!!! I THINK I DESERVE A FREAKING MILKY WAY !!!  Do you think he got it? NO he did not, and why do you think he didnt get it. Was it because he wishes death on himself?… NO! Was it because he is just dumb?… NO! It’s because for so long he has wanted me to do this, finally take charge of my weight and become thinner and now that I am he is making sure i dont “slip” he has become the Hitler of the diet world!!! Now if he wanted it, we would have a freezer FULL!!!!

Yes i know i sound rude, and very negative and ungreatful that i have lost 19lbs. I am SOOO greatful and have no thoughts or returning back to that way… With that said, i still want a Milky Way!!!
