Where has the time gone?!?!

I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted!!! Wow!!

I have some very important, big news items in the works right now, and I am busting at the seams to talk about them!!! But I have to wait until everything is done, so keep checking back!!

Today is another busy day. Lots of work to do, and lots of things to do. My organization has been on hold for awhile, so hopefully that will be up and running some time soon. ;)

Keep checking back for updates!! *Ü*

Crazy days.

Man, things sure get crazy when I have a sickie kiddo at home. Thank goodness it wasn't her "usual" illness, but C has been sick for the past few days. I'm trying to get her well because we are going to see The Cheetah Girls on Sunday!! Woo hoo!! lol... We are also staying the night at The Paris, and going to have fun being tourists for the day!

I still need to upload pics from the basketball tourney; I haven't forgotten. Just been crazy busy!! So after I work today, I'll update again. Check back later!! *Ü*

Technical difficulties...

Blogger was down most of the day for me, so I was unable to do a well thought out entry today, lol. But I'll be back tomorrow!!

Happy Monday!!

Well, not really, haha. The kids are back to school, so that means a little more peace and quiet. But other than that, it's business as usual for me. I'm really jiving on the Motivated Moms chore sheet, and very happy that I'm keeping a clean house. And a happy mommy means a happy family, right?!

Today is a short entry because I really have to crank at work today. A few days off and I really put myself behind. You'd think I'd learn by now.

So hopefully I'll have time for another entry later today!!

Thank goodness for Sunday.

We are not a religious family, but I am starting to really like the "Sunday is a day of rest" concept. We have been going like crazy lately, and it's nice to try and relax today.

The tourney went FABULOUS yesterday. Our girls team won three out of three!! They played back-to-back-to-back, so they were utterly *exhausted* when they were done. We almost lost the last game (22-24), but they pulled it together. I will post some pics once I upload them.

Today's agenda is pretty relaxing. I just finished a bacon and egg breakfast, the troops are fed and full, and the kitchen is clean. Just a few topical chores to do and then I need to work for a few hours. But that is no problem either. ;)

I hope you all have an exciting and relaxing Sunday too!

Glad we didn't want to rest today...

H has made the basketball A-team (lol, for all you 80s peeps) at her school this year, and we are so VERY proud of her!! But...along with greatness comes great responsibility. Like practice for 2.5 hours EVERY SINGLE DAY. And "tournaments" in another city an hour away for the ENTIRE day.

We are heading to Alamo today for a basketball tournament. Now, when *I* think of tournament, I think of the best-of-the-best hashing it out for number one. But these kids JUST started playing again, so I'm not too sure what to expect. I only know that we have to drive for an hour, there are three games, and we won't be back until late tonight.

Wish us luck!!

Pictures will come later!!!

Busy, busy, BUSY!!!

Wow. Who knew that housework could keep a person so busy?! But I do love a clean, organized house, so I keep going until I'm satisfied...which will probably be never.

Organizing is a sort of passion of mine. I always tell D that if we were rich, I'd have every single item in our house organized, in a box, with a label, all matching. Ahh...a girl can dream, right? But the same thing always happens to me: I get in an organizing tizzy, I buy some boxes to store stuff in (I buy what the budget will allow), and then I organize. When I need more boxes (and the budget allows)....they are always gone. So. I have hodge-podge storage boxes.

I think that I need to win the lottery, collect my winnings, and spend a weekend in The Container Store. It's the organizer's Disneyland. *sigh*

I've come to a conclusion.

In my many, many diet programs I've gone through, I have come to the conclusion that there is one product I MUST have to keep my sanity.


I love to drink coffee in the mornings. It's not so much the get-up-and-go factor because caffeine doesn't really affect me. I can drink a huge Starbucks frappuchino and then crawl into bed, lol. I believe it is the way it makes me feel. Coffee makes me warm inside. It warms my hands. It tastes good. It's comforting, but not in the way that a cheeseburger used to comfort me. Can you relate? Am I looney?! Wait. Don't answer that.

So. I have decided that in order for me to succeed in my current program, I am going to allow myself to have a morning cup of coffee. It gets my day started, gets me warmed up, and makes me happy.

On a roll!!

Yesterday went *fabulously* well, with almost all of my little goals I set getting accomplished. I can't wait until it just becomes upkeep and not major cleaning.

Today is day two of my cleanse, and I'm feeling just a little hungry. I am down two pounds this morning though!! Yippee!! I was starving yesterday, so I did "cheat" and eat a few pieces of lunchmeat and a few carrots. Heck, I went from eating huge...to drinking, lol. Cut me some slack. ;)

I got up again at 6AM today and exercised!! Two days in a ROW!! You're witnessing history here, folks. I feel great, though, and I'm going to slowly start increasing my time by the end of the week.

D is home sick today. He's been fighting bronchitis for a week now, and working NYE on the strip didn't help him much, so he's taking a breather from everything today. I hope he doesn't throw off my groove.....;)~

What is this strange word...exercise...?

Today I began my quest to lose weight. I got up, and I exercised for ten minutes STRAIGHT!!! lol...

Adding to the exercise, my friend and I are doing Isagenix, which is a body cleanse, with a lovely side effect of weight loss. And weight loss, dear readers, is our friend.

Isagenix is a program that is designed to go after the toxins in your body. When we ingest toxins, our body does not know what to do with them, so it surrounds them with fat and stores them in your body. When you lose weight, you do not lose the toxins because your body is afraid of letting them go. The cleanse attacks those toxins, you lose those fat cells, hence the weight loss!!

I am not going to post my weight because gawd knows there aren't that many numbers, lol, but I'm excited to see some results!!

Happy New Year!!!

A great big welcome to 2007!!!

Ringing in the new year was uneventful at our house, as always. The man had to work and keep the city streets safe, and the kids and I sat around, watched movies, and put away the Christmas decor. It's nice to have my house back.

C fell asleep at...oh...11:55pm, lol. I went in and shook her up and made her come downstairs! H and Z came down, we watched the countdown on tv, the girls popped poppers, we called the man....and we were done. Happy new year everyone. Now go to bed.

Today is the first day of 2007, and I'm starting out on the right foot! Hey, there's a blogger entry, right?!

I've already downloaded my 2007 motivated moms planner, which helped me TREMENDOUSLY last year in keeping my house clean and my sanity in order. That is, it helped me when I used it, lol. But this year EVERY DAY will be used!!

I think today I will organzie my office area. Baby steps, right?! ;)
