Attempting to Organize my Life

I am always running around. I have 4 sons, 3 different schools and 1 very active 2 year old at home with me. Their activities include Track, Young Marines, Gymnastics, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Special Olympics and other things I am sure I forgot just now. We have the the annual check ups, semi annual dentist visits and the unexpected my son is hurt urgent care visits.

Between all of this I keep forgetting things. I have an Ipod Touch that I love and it has a calender where I keep my appointments, but at an emergency doctor visit I have probably left my iPod at home. So for months now I have been searching for the perfect solutions. I have seen the household life binders and tried a few different ones, but all of them were missing something. Now I think I finally have the best one for me you can find it here.

That site has a video how she put hers together and why. I think it is very good. At the bottom of the post she has the complete binder for you to print as a free printable. Cool Huh? I love free! I also love free things that help me be a better mother and wife.

What works for you?

Long Time and no Blogging from me

Sorry. I have the most energetic two year old in the world and he keeps me running after him. Even now he is sitting on my computer talking to me and begging for my attention. I know you are thinking why aren't you giving him your attention. Well I have been all day. I have a few episodes of Scooby-Doo, Cailou and Micky Mouse Club House down by heart. Not to mention the many books I read to this little man every day. Yet, I would not change it for the world.

In this economy we haven't been getting much business and there are a few things I need and/or want. So I am getting back into Swag Bucks to get a few free items. I did this a lot in the past and today I found out I still had a free $10 credit at Amazon.com. I ordered Toy Story 3 for my little man the shipping was free too. So I did some checking and found out the credit was from Swag Bucks over a year ago. I love that site. So I am going to start up again and search for fun and free things to make my men happy. OK once I ordered a few books for me with my credit, but that was only once.

Now I am not being paid in any way to tell you how wonderful they are. They just happen to be the site that made me happiest today in my cyber strolls. So go check them out.

No Excuses

Baby and I were sick there for a while. I am happy to say I am pretty much better. I am sad to say my little man is a little slower to mend.

So along with my new home I want a new body.

I have been working hard to make our house a home. Unloading boxes and putting things where they belong, adding to the give away/goodwill pile. It is a work in progress. I am sad to say I still haven’t come across my Healthy Diva Christmas trade stuff. When I find it, it will be off in the mail.

Baby has been a Wonderful exercise tool. When he needs attention I pick him up and do some bench presses. Yep, he works well being over 23 pounds. I am feeling the burn. He also helps me do crunch thingies. I put him on my legs while bringing both my neck and legs together. It feels like it is helping my stomach. We also do double leg lifts together. He shows off his adorable dimples while I count and make funny faces at him.

I have also been working at eating better again. I don’t know about you, but when I stress out I crave chocolate and other “bad” foods. Awe my homemade pizza. One of the great loves of my life.

Along with baby weights I have been working on cardio. I have to do this. I am feeling so sluggish and sad that I only have 3 skirts and one pair of jeans that fit OK. I hate being this far off track. So here I go yet again. My life has settled and I have no excuse for staying this way.

The thing that really threw me off the ledge of overweight comfort is Family pictures. We hadn’t had any taken for just under 4 years. So when were offered a free 8 x 10 by our insurance agent for Christmas, we jumped at the opportunity. We had done some more moving that day and were only able to find all solid long sleeve shirts (so we don’t match well) and we ran to get our pictures taken. I thought my hair looked OK, boy was I wrong I have frizzy hair and it shows. I have been indoors with baby a lot and I look like Casper the friendly over weight ghost with witches’ hair. Yep I am big, frizzy and white as can be. Still I ordered 5x7’s for my family for Christmas since they all need to see baby.

So now that I made this my Health and anything else I feel blog I have you all to encourage me and listen to my ups, my downs and anything else I feel like blogging about. Thanks You all for your support.
