I'm Alive! I Swear!

  • The last week and a half has been busy to say the least. After dealing with a sick kid, my husband got sick and he's even worse than the 4 year old. Plus I had girls night and I'm trying to scrub the house so that it will be ready for Christmas decorations this weekend.
  • I joined a gym and hired a personal trainer! I'm soooo excited. Except that I've been a member for a week and a half now and I haven't been able to get there(see bullet point #1). Next week I will jump back on the horse.
  • I've been going to Physical Therapy for my back for the past 3 weeks and I'm feeling much better. The only issue is that I am the youngest person that must go there for therapy. When i picked this place it was because it took our obscure insurance and it was close by. Then I realized it's located at an all-inclusive senior residence. Everyone else there are healing from broken hips and strokes. I stick out like a sore thumb and they all want to talk to me and watch me do my back exercises. They are encouraging me the whole time but it's seriously uncomfortable having them watch me doing the clam and planks.
  • It seems my major back issue is my core strength and not flexibility so between the PT and the gym, hopefully I'll be better soon.
  • Last night Mark and I were on the couch watching a movie when he says that he misses all the little things that we used to do before we had Annabelle. Of course before he gets a chance to tell me what those little things are, Annabelle starts crying upstairs to go to the bathroom. When I got back the moment was over and now who knows when he'll feel like telling me these things!
  • We are going for our annual Christmas photos after Annabelle gets out of school today. The last session wasn't great. I was making the weirdest faces.
  • Thanksgiving in two more days and then I'll be surrounded by family and it will be great. Except that by the end of the day I'll probably have a headache from all the noise. But as my dad says- If they are loud, it means their happy. If they are quiet, look out!
  • Anyone going Black Friday shopping? I might, but it's supposed to be only 35 degrees with a LES warning. Maybe that deal on the new DVD player for my parents won't be good enough for me to get up at 2am. We'll see, there's always Cyber Monday:)
  • I'll get back on track with this whole blogging thing next week. I have posts floating around in my head.
  • Everyone have a happy, fun and laughter filled Thanksgiving!


  1. No Black Friday shopping for me...I don't think I could handle it!

    My back has been bugging me ever since I had my youngest and I think it's core strength, also. I used to do Pilates and I felt so strong in my core and back...but it's been years now and I NEED to start up again!

    Good for you for joining a gym! I made a resolution this morning that I am GETTING ON THE TREADMILL TODAY!!! I must!

    Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  2. I am going shopping black friday. Ok well I am sitting in the car while the sportsman stands in line in the cold.
    Isnt that the same as shopping?

    Cant wait.

    On the photos note, we used to get our family pics taken early in the year just for our christmas cards. Didnt happen this year. so sad.
    We even found a place that will let us bring in our dogs for the photo.

  3. KandiLand- The hardest part about getting on the treadmill is starting. Once I've benn doing it for a week or so it becomes routine but until then it's always hard!

    KittyCat- We have a plan. I'm going to Walmart, sister is Target, mom is toys r us my aunt is kmart. We will each have everyone's list for that store and then meet up for breakfast. I love having our pictures taken together whenever we can. I love going through old photos and having a good memory come stolling in. Makes me happy:)
