Random Friday Ramblings....

I'm so glad this week is over! It has been the week from hell. Every day seemed longer than the other, and by today, all the days just seemed to blend into one. It doesn't help that I had to drive to my IL's house every day this week to drop off the kids -- they live 35 minutes away, and in the morning's when it's crunch time, I never seem to make it on time. Every day this week I was barely making it into work by 8:30 a.m. One day traffic was so bad b/c of stupid RAIN that I didn't get in until 9 a.m.! whoops!

I'm so glad that I found out my phone is covered under warranty. My phone just decided to stop working a few days ago -- no one can hear me when I answer the phone, and even if I have it on speaker phone, I have to shout really loud and hope that the person on the other end can hear me. It's kind of hard to talk like that! thankfully the only person that really calls me is my husband and I can shout to him all I want. All I have to do now is drive 1/2 hr tomorrow to some fulfillment center which sounds really tricky to get to, and they'll replace my phone right there. Whoo hoo!

All the kids except for Matt (my 11 year old) are gone this weekend. My house is too quiet! I'm used to the sounds that Peyton makes while he's sleeping in the room next to me, but there's no sounds.... I straightened up the living room tonight and put all their toys back in their toy boxes, and I know the minute they get home Sunday night, ALL the toys will be thrown back out again!

I've made it a whole week on my new diet, and it's going really well!! I can notice subtle changes already. I've completely cut out my Code Red Mt Dew addiction, and instead have been sporadically drinking diet Coke. It's the taste of soda without the calories! I've been eating smaller portion sizes, and tonight when I tried to eat a 'real' meal, I got full so fast! Now I have to start exercising, which I'll start doing when I get the Wii fit, and I'll be on my way.

Gas is going up again -- yuck. I was loving the super low prices..

I have a busy day tomorrow, with lots of driving and lots of running around. I'd rather stay at home.

Your week sounds busy! Good for you with your diet. I used to HATE diet coke but after I started drinking it I hate regular coke. After you change your tastes it gets so much easier!

I need to start exercising! Maybe one day you'll do a post on what exercises you do, for how long and how much it's helping you and you'll motivate me! lol Good luck!

And thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! It's just been one of 'those' days! ((hugs)) back!
