What are you all upto?
I've just been busy back to work, having some medical stuff going on, and dealing with two kids What about you?
Back to work this week- had a great time over the holidays! I'm doing a weight-loss competition with my moms' group. I'm in week 2, and I've lost 7 pounds. Exercising, eating better. I'm on www.myfitnesspal.com to track calories, and it really helps. That's my major focus right now. Thomas is awesome. He is into dinosaurs and Hot Wheels cars. "Mommy, you want to shot cars with me? So cute!!
I'm leaving Monday with the kids to visit my family in Miami. Its going to be 14 hours of travel time. So not looking forward to that!!! Its just me and the kids, DH is meeting us later. We are going for nearly 5 weeks with a week in Disney World at the end. I'm very excited! (though not about flying with the kids on my own, just want that part over with!)
The weather is cool right now in South FL! I am sure it'll be beautiful for your trip. Have a great time with the fam, and at Disney!
No advice for the plane ride. Do you have an ipad or DVD player for him to watch movies?
I wish I was having a vacation - I'm sooo done with this cold miserable weather!
Nothing really new here, just back to normal day stuff, work and school..... I wish I had something exciting to share lol.
I'm out for my SILs 30th on Sat night, dressed as a gangster ha.
I had typed a reply and it got lost
We are good, DH works nights and I work school hours, so kids are at school and daycare, then I pick up and have the afternoon, evening and weekends with them. Busy with the two littles running about and the bigs always wanting to be off doing their thing. Kade is being a real stinker lately, hope he outgrows it soon! Miss you all though!
We're doing well, I'm training for my first ever "cross country" style race - it's a 10k in a really hilly park. Trying to kick start my fitness and weight loss this way, still struggling to lose that last 15lbs of baby weight from Esther.
Ava's fantastic, still loving preschool, talks a mile a minute non-stop, adores her baby sister.
Esther is great too. I really struggled with her sleep for a long time, so a couple of weeks ago I did some hard core sleep trainig and it worked - she's been sleeping through the night ever since! Up until last week she had never, ever, ever slept through the night. I'm loving it.
Since we were supposed to be moving to Canada April last year (sob) we've earmarked this April as our DEFINITELY leaving the UK date. DH has been applying for jobs in Canada like mad, and in a couple of weeks he'll start applying in Australia too. If nothing comes from all this, we'll just pick up sticks and move to Aus. Gulp. But there is way more work in what we do there, and we know we could easily both get good paying jobs over there. Canada simply doesn't have much of what we do, unfortunately, so it would be too risky.
Where in Canada are you looking Courtney? Would love to meet you if you end up near by!
Not much going on here. DH works evenings and weekend and I work days, so we are juggling like mad. Alicia is starting preschool and DJ is talking up a storm. He is very mechanically minded and we have to hid the screwdrivers etc as he has started to take things in the house apart.
Nicole, I grew up in Victoria, and my mom is still there, so we are mainly looking there and Vancouver. Also looking at Calgary, as there is more work there! Where are you again?
Well, chances are that we'll have to meet on vacation then...I'm in the GTA (Hamilton ON)
Good luck with it all Court, Canada or Aus you're onto a winner either way!
