Hello my peeps! I have started so many posts the past couple of weeks but could not finish any of them. Here I am today with enthusiasm and an eagerness for blogging once again.
The boys are enjoying school these days. Gavin is loving preschool and I am loving the break this gives me three times a week. While he is at preschool my nearest(a literal hop, skip and jump away) and (one of many) dearest....(I love you all my friends:)) friend Joni have been doing the bridges. It has been awesome to get out and walk first thing in the morning. Lucy even joined us last week for a walk and we got a good ab workout from all of the laughter! As a result of my new routine I have been so pooped at the end of the day. Yesterday afternoon the boys and I went to our friends' house for a weenie roast(a tad bit cold...brrr!)and I was back in bed by 9:30 pm.
Today I was busy shopping, organizing and cleaning. I am a typical domestic diva. I bought the new Swiffer Wet Jet...and let me tell you....LOVE IT!!! This mama was singing with joy as I swiffered away all the dirt and grime off of my lino. The funny thing is that my hubby was the one who has been bugging me to buy it. So he will be just as happy to see that this product does the job it advertises!! A thumbs up.
I found lots of great bargains at the grocery store today(bacon .99 if you redeemed 1000 points...Prawns. Buy one get one free....cadbury thins.... .$.75 for a box of 6):). I love finding good deals. It makes shopping way more enjoyable. I've also meal planned for the week so I'll include our meal plan at the end of this post:)
Shay isn't playing hockey this year. He decided he didn't want to do it and I didn't want to be the mother that forces her son into sports. Instead he will be focusing on skiing, swimming and both older boys will be joining cubs. They are quite excited for this. This will be the first time that Shay and Josey can do something together. It worked out perfectly.
This week I will be hitting the exercising hard as well as being diligent with the eating. I want to lose 30 pounds by Christmas. Let me rephrase that...I will be losing 30 pounds by Christmas!:)
I'm going to rant for a moment now...
"Yes I know my husband is hot. And NO I don't feel that he is "too good looking" for me!!"
WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually I think we are a wonderful match. Eventhough I am a fat, doesn't mean that I am unattractive. I'm actually good looking. I get tired of the stereotypes that people place on other people. Furthermore....I haven't always been fat!....Bottom line:
My husband thinks I'm the sexiest woman out there!"
Phewf...long story. I won't go into it, but it sure felt good to rant!
Gavin said this to me yesterday:
"Mommy, I'm not a widdle(little) boy anymore....I'm a fisherman!"
He caught his first fish(a rainbow trout) the other day at Onion Lake. He got it on his own and reeled it in on his own. He was quite proud!!!
We've been spending lots of time walking, hiking and fishing. The other day we hiked to Clearwater Lake and enjoyed the afternoon there. On the weekend we went to the Powerlines in Kitimat and had a cookout on the river. The blackflies were HORRIBLE, so I was not too happy. The fish weren't biting, but were jumping like mad, so Scott wasn't too happy. We had just bought a new fishing rod/reel for me to coho/steelhead fish and the reel was buggered some how. Whoever put the line on didn't do it properly so it kept cutting. The boys were happy though ! I guess that's all that matters. Oh the joys........in the end it was just nice to be in the outdoors. Can't beat the outdoors:)
We got the back door painted and are contemplating whether to stain the deck or not? I think we are safe to wait another season,but it would be nice to get it done so next spring we don't have to do it. My bet is that it'll wait for another season.
I would like to get the front door painted. I'm torn between a red or a black. Two complete different looks...any suggestions? We'll have to get new hardware for the door and a new mailbox and new light fixtures...maybe this will wait...LOL
I've already begun my Christmas shopping. I have started the lists to decide what we're getting for who. Yay...I love Christmas. This year I think we will have an Open House before we leave. We are heading to Jaffray for Christmas, which will be fun(for the most part anyways!!)
Anyhow it's almost Big Brother time...
I leave you with my Meal Plan for the week:
Sunday: Sweet and Sour Spare Ribs with Basmati Rice.
Monday: Spaghetti and green salad.
Tuesday: Garlic Prawns served over Ceasar Salad. I'll have chicken as I am allergic to prawns:(
Wednesday: BBQ Burgers with Tomato and Cucumber Salad. (I won't have the bun)
Thursday: Halibut with Rice Pilaf..(we have a whole freezer full of Halibut...yummy)
Friday: Chicken with roasted potatoes, grilled asparagus and green salad.
Saturday: Meatballs with mashed potatoes and corn. (Free Day)
Sunday: Beef Dip and Coleslaw
Anyhow...off to throw another load of laundry in the wash...
Hope you're all enjoying this day!
