It Finally Happened....

It has finally happened -

I've turned 30!  

Sunday, March 1, 1981 at 8:10am, I was born.

No big celebrations for me tonight.  I had some girlfriends over to celebrate with me on Friday.  We had a good time but I can't wait till my husband comes home and we can have our big joined 30th birthday party!

Since I have nothing else exciting, I'll leave you with some jokes my grandma sent me in my birthday card:

" A soldier in my National Guard platoon became concerned when the Army insisted that he sign up for direct deposit.  'It's not going to work for me,' he said, panicked.  'Why not?' I asked.  'Because I use my Guard pay for spending money.'  'So?'  'For the past ten years, I've been telling my wife that I serve for free!'"

"Louie and his wife are listening to the radio when they hear the weather report:  'A snow emergency has been declared.  You must park your cars on the odd-numbered side of the street."  So Louie gets up and moves his car.  Two days later - same thing.  'A snow emergency has been declared,' blares the radio.  'Park your car on the even-numbered side of the street.'  Louie gets up and does what he's told.  Three days later: 'There will be a foot of snow today.  Park your cars on the ...,' and then the power goes out.  'What should I do?' a confused Louie asks his wife.  'This time,' she says, 'why don't you just leave the car in the garage?'"

"I bought a new toilet seat recently.  On the label was a suggestion on how to clean it.  Although nice to have the option, I doubt I'll take advantage of it.  My toilet seat, it seems, is 'Dishwasher Safe.'"

Weigh In Friday

Yes, I know it is not Friday but my weekend has gotten away from me.  I was nervous to weigh in this week because I knew I ate like crap at the baby shower on Saturday.  I also didn't get to go to the gym on Monday because schools were closed and the kids were home and then didn't get to go on Tuesday either because schools were closed with the stupid snow.  

I was actually preparing myself to gain a pound or two.  

So here is where I currently stand:

Starting Weight  ???  (I was afraid of the number so I didn't weigh in till the end of week 1)
Week 1  ???  (145.6)
Week 2  -3 lbs  (142.6)
Week 3  -2 lbs  (140.6)
Week 4  -1 lbs  (139.6)
Week 5  -1.4 lbs  (138.2)
Week 6  -3 lbs  (135.2)
Total loss so far 10.4 lbs! 

Yup!  3 pounds!  I was SO excited.  I think the loss maybe due to the fact that I started running again this week.  It's the first time since my surgery...and I still hate it just as much as I did before.  Lol.

It's Getting Closer

Right now we are 321 days into this stupid deployment.

And this deployment is finally ALMOST over!

And I can't wait!

I don't have definite dates yet but my hubby did give me a date to have his cell phone turned back on.

That's a start....right??

I'm getting excited - can't wait to have him back in my arms!


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
