Finding the time

I don't know how people do it.  I can't seem to find enough hours in the day or the proper balance to accomplish everything I need to on a day to day basis.  You should see my planner.  I have lists upon lists of things I'd like to complete and day after day, they're still not crossed off.  Maybe one of these days I'll figure it out.  Until then, suggestions are more than welcome!

A little bit of random today (mainly because I'm still trying to wrap my head around the horrible tragedy from last week.  It's hit me hard and I'm trying not to think about what these parents are going through.  I can't even begin to fathom it.  My prayers are with them all)

~I totally got played by a 5 year old yesterday.  Noah totally conned me into bringing him back home after we got to school in the morning. Kid:1 Mom:0

~I have every intention of getting back into the writing mode.  I have so many things to discuss, so many experiences to chronicle.  I just can't seem to find the time (again, see above.  I just can't find the balance)

~I can't wait until Christmas!  Although I'm not in too much of a Christmasy mood right now.  Not sure why.

~The Hubs totally made my day on Saturday and that feeling was followed up today by Noah.  We went to Christmastown at Busch Gardens on Saturday and I was hoping it would be cold because I wanted to sport some winter attire.  So I threw on my black crochet hat and the Hubs said I looked like Claudia Schiffer from Love Actually, with better teeth.  Then today, while Noah was at home and not in his classroom, he and the Hubs watched Love Actually and he said, "that lady looks like Mommy!" It was Claudia Schiffer!  My boys definitely know how to boost ones self esteem!  Especially because I, by no means, look like her.  At. All.
Not too sure if I see it but who knows 
~I've tried to really tried to kick my butt into gear when it comes my health.  I am so ashamed to say that I gained all the weight back that I lost last year.  It's horrible.  So I made the decision to take charge of my life and get back in control.  I've been writing down everything I eat/drink and I'm watching what I'm eating.  Since my kidney stone 3 weeks ago (that was the last time I stepped on a scale), I've lost between 5-6 lbs.  And honestly, I think I lost all the weight last week since I had been eating like crap before then.  I'm trying not to be excited about this because it's just a start but I think I have to celebrate small victories.  I've also added a few runs in this week.  I think I might actually be able to link up with Meghan and Genna this week!!!  I really need to find a good race to sign up for so I have something to work towards!!



  1. I'm right there with ya on the whole weight loss thing. I've actually started a new blog but I am holding off to make sure I can keep it up. Terrible I know. I love your pic & yes you actually do look like Claudia Schiffer in that picture, too cute! I too have a celebrity look alike. The other day my daughter was looking through my people magazine when she ran into the room yelling "Mommy I found a picture of you in this magazine!!" I knew immediately who it was going to be, but I was hoping beyond hope that it was Reese Witherspoon or something (j/k), so she shows me the picture & sure enough, it was Rosie O'Donnell. So be happy with your comparison & just say thank you :D

  2. No I see the likeness there! :) How cute that he said that!

    And I'm excited for you to link up! Maybe you could make a Gasparilla race your goal? They have so many that I'm sure you could aim for one and reach that goal by the race weekend in February!

  3. I see the resemblance! :)

    Good for you with the weight loss and getting back to it. I'm going to try to fix myself up a bit this year...I've been using the "I just had a baby" excuse for 9 months now but there's not so much "just" about it anymore. I've also been struggling with finding time for everything though, so my eating habits are crap! Here's hoping we can all get it together in 2013!!! :)
