Moving Day

Well moving day is coming up!! mind you we have most of our stuff moved already. Having a husband in the oilfield you pretty well have to take advantage of him at home. So on his days off we moved everything except the stuff we needed. So on saturday we have only about three truck loads to take out to the new house. I will be sooooo happy when this is all over and im soooo excited to be moving out of town. I am very much looking forward to having all the room and my kids being able to just go out and run around and play.

Far Too Long!!!!

Man, life sure can go by fast. I knew it had been a super long time since i blogged last, but when i logged in i realized its been almost a year. What have i accomplished? Well, I am still sane. Life in my house is crazy, never stopping and exhausting. Some days i realize at 3 in the afternoon i haven't even eaten yet, never mind brushed my teeth. Starting at 630am i get Kearstin up, shes a typical girl and hates getting up in the morning, has to try on 15 outfits and spends hours in the bathroom staring at herself. At 730am the first of 4 dayhome kids show up. by the time Kearstin is gone to catch the bus, the kids are all here and hayden is up. So i spend the morning cleaning, chasing, breaking up fights, wiping snotty noses and wiping away tears. By Lunch i'm exhausted. The two younger kids take naps, and on a good day Hayden and Jaxon do too!! By now i've drank three coffee and have to do a tour of cleaning again so they can wake up and mess it all up again. 4pm and Kearstin gets home, usually grumpy cuz shes tired and hungry. Making supper, doing laundry and making sure she does homework and chores. Two days a week we rush off to Taekwon Do and then rush home to put them to bed. Some days i feel like my running around never ends. On top of all this, we are packing, AGAIN!! Our house now is a rent to own property and when we moved in we had every intention of the own part. Now with the drop in realty we have decided against it. They want about 100000 over market value for this house and that just isn't an option for us. So we have been quietly looking for other options. We wanted something cheaper, more practical. Don't get me wrong i love my house but i have been watching and i can purchase the same house for ridiculously cheaper. We decided to rent for a year or two to see if prices drop some more which our realtor tells us is going to happen. That way we will have saved up a reasonable downpayment and can get into a house we feel financially good about and love. So Dec. 1st we move into our new to us home. Very nice house on a few acres just 3kms from town. My daycare kids will still be able to come to me so i wont lose money and the place is really great. I'm really looking forward to being out of town. I miss my families farm. I remember being a kid and just spending my holidays and weekends and every spare moment out there. I want my kids to have that too.
Well on to the subject of my wieght loss. I haven't been. But i haven't forgot that i have to. I start and then lose motivation and then i stop. A cycle i know has to stop. I'm trying to get some others to start up a biggest loser type competition. Everyone who wants to participate puts in 20 bucks in a pot after 3 mths we all weigh in and whoever has lost the most percent of body weight wins the money. i think it might be the motivation i need. Or maybe i just need to join some online support groups. One thing i do know is that i need to find a way to stay on it. That seems to be the main part of my problem, i lose my motivation. I am hoping that after the move i will be able to continue. My elliptical will finally have a home, on my main floor in my living room where i have to look at it every day. No excuses, i keep telling myself. Another thing is that i need to blog, it gives me a reason to keep up with the working out. Because when i do lose weight i'm proud so i like to share that with others. its also my place to vent and get things off my chest, which is hindering to my success. When things bother me and i get stressed out or depressed, i eat, don't sleep proper and its not good. I'm hoping one day my life will slow down and then i can concentrate more on losing weight but until then i guess i just have to figure out how to make it work!!!
