So what are your thirteen things for Thursday?
I thought I was tired yesterday! Today I am exhausted. Jeff was up at least every 2 hrs last night, I have a newborn in the house..LOL. The meds kept giving him bad dreams, I think he woke up telling me the wiring on the doors were wrong twice. He got up and started taking his shoulder harness off like 3 times. I had to change his ice pressure machine, and get him eye meds in the middle of the night. I laughed at myself when I woke up and had noticed a 3 hr span had gone by and was thanking God for that...LOL. He is doing good still in a lot of pain but, well hopefully after we get more meds in him he will be fine. Last night while I was sleeping he watched tv, and I wanted to get up and sleep in the girls room but knew I couldn't leave him and am I glad I didn't. Today is going to be a long day but luckily mom is helping out, and taking the girls for another night for me. Having the boys here is easy Alex is a huge help. Jake stayed at Veny's for the day yesterday and she got him to nap so hopefully today I can snuggle him on the couch and get a few zzzz's myself. Well I better go Jeff needs his ice changed some more meds and prob. something else. Thanks for listening to me complain all!

After having a horrible hangover on Friday I slept all day, and woke up sick. I have a cold UGH! So for the last few days i stayed mostly in bed or asleep on the couch. I am lucky to have a hubby who understood I needed my sleep. Monday I got back into working out again, and maybe it was all the puking on Thursday night but, I lost weight over the Holiday...LOL. I am hoping to be down at least another 10 lbs by Christmas, and I think I can do it. My energy level is so much higher now, and man it feels good to be healthy. I tried to eat a piece of cake the other day and I could only eat half, it was great I got my fill of it but, didn't go over board.
Jeff goes into surgery next week. Not really thrilled about the whole thing. I mean at this time can we really afford him being off of work NO! For those who were around for his last shoulder surgery you know how much fun it was for me. The poor guy just got to sleep all the time while I was waking up every 2 hrs to change the ice in his shoulder pressure machine. Waiting on him hand and foot, not that he wouldn't for me if the tables were turned...but. I am just not looking forward to it. So look for many nights or days of complaining from me for the next 8 weeks...LOL
The kids are so excited for Christmas and have been begging to put up our tree. We live in the land of trees and yes , we have an artificial tree. We have for the last 6 yrs I believe. We started when the kids were young and we didn't want them inhaling pine needles now well, it is just convenient. Plus, I never have to water it, and it is pretty. I guess it won't be happening tonight because I am headed to a pamper chef party.
HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!

One or two meals a week, substitute beans or legumes instead of meat in salads, soups, or in the main dish.
Chill soups, gravies, and stews in the refrigerator, then skim the fat off the top.
Include more fiber to feel full. Eat more lentils, dry beans, peas, vegetables, fruits, brown rice, and whole grains.
For a great low-fat, low-sugar snack, try no-butter, low-salt popcorn. Two cups only has 60 calories!
Removing the skin from chicken saves you 5 grams of fat every time.
When baking, use applesauce instead of butter to save 90 calories.
Cut back on foods with hidden sugar like ketchup, white bread, canned fruit, and salad dressing.
Grate your cheese rather than slicing - you will use less cheese and save fat grams.

Friday Morning I woke up with a horrible migraine, the light the noise it was killing me. I even felt like I was going to puke it was so bad. Jeff was great he let me sleep all day long and kept coming up stairs to check up on me. Also for once I woke up from being sick and the house was not a disaster it was fabulous! So really my Friday was a huge waste just sleeping I couldn't even watch shows it hurt that much.
Saturday was a nice relaxing day again I still had a headache not as bad luckily. The kids did art projects where they made a huge mess and got paint absolutely everywhere. They had fun, and I was able to rest some so I guess I can't complain. When Riley and Alex arrived home from their playdate and going to the movies we had a nice dinner, and then our new tradition FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT. It's so nice it is a time where we are all home and enjoying time together. The kids look forward to it, they even cancel plans with friends to hang with us. I know that is not going to last long so I am taking advantage of it for as long as I can.
Today Sunday was nice and just another home day. I was able to make Christmas presents, and nope I can't tell you what because too many relatives read this...LOL. This evening was fun all of us played the wii I got my butt kicked at bowling by Alex he got 2 sets of Turkey's, dang him..LOL I decided that I was going to make my Christmas music cd's tonight and so I did. It is so nice that the Holidays are just around the corner. I look so forward to seeing family this week, and having almost all the cousins together sorry Meri you can't be there. I am planning on putting up the tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving I am so excited! I love my tree and all it's beautiful colors, sitting by the fire with Jeff with the tree lights on just holding each other. Well, I am stinky so I need to go take my shower LOVE YOU ALL!

I miss the children running through the door after school running to find me to give me huge hugs and tell me "Mommy I missed you so much." Now I get kids backpacks and coats thrown all over the hall floor and the first thing out of their mouths is "Can I have a snack?" Getting information about their day is like pulling teeth sometimes. Next year Jake will be in school and I will be home alone. I am not sure what I am going to do with my time. I hope I can go into their classrooms and be the "real" SAHM. I dreamed all my life of being a huge part of their class life and now I will have my chance. I do have to admit I am scared, it is just around the corner that I will be alone in the house my identity will be changing. How can I call myself a SAHM (oh for those who don't know = Stay at home mom). I mean I won't have children at home during the day what does that make me? Should I get a job? Should I go back to school? Should I just live for myself for once? So many questions and such a short time to come up with an answer.
I know in the end it will all be ok but, for now with my baby turning 5 in Jan and my oldest turning 11 in Dec it all seems to be coming so fast.
