Yea you shouldn't be responsible for the cleaning up after his handy men change things. As long as you got photos I wouldn't worry bout it. Either way you should be in your new house now ;D I hope it's going well for you and that it's just what you wanted!!

My short vaca was not to bad could of been worst could of been better. But we made it thru it lol. Than my dad went in the hospital for blood clots in his lungs... all week I couldn't seem to sleep well or even relax.. just worried bout my dad. He got home yesterday. And finally things seem to be going normal. I haven't worked out in a while and I feel a bit guilty bout that. Last week I had moments I just didn't feel like it. I think the combo of the stress, work, and everything I just stopped functioning. I'm feeling better today but feel the need to workout just haven't made it there yet. My nutrition has been good off and on. But still no weigh gain so. I'll take it.

Anyways I hope your doing well and enjoying the new place ;) Everything is good here now finally. talk to ya soon!

After 2 days in the car i am in our new home town. The realtor said she couldnt sign papers for the landlord in regards to the condition if the house, but she didnt see any reason why shouldn't get get most if not all back. Unless he decidedto hire professional cleaners to come in after the handyman that he was hiring to update some out of date cabinetry. I could not see how i could possibly be responsible for paying for cleaning up after his hired workers after I left...after all the cabinets still work and were just as ugly when i moved in ;-)

Good luck on your trip, have gun and relax, you deserve a nice trip!

well I would definately take photos as proof of how you left it. And you can always get them to walk with you and sign something stating you left the place in great condition. This way you cover yourself so if you do have to take them to small claims you can :)

I'm doing ok.. now planning a small trip to NY this weekend and I'ms tressed and I seemed to be eating everything :| And just exhausted.... ugg I really need to workout and so far this week no workouts.. I know it's only been a few days of the week.. but.. I feel ugg...

Hope your doing well.!!

I knew you were busy! I just figured i would post anyways!

Last little bits of cleaning today, wiping down cabinets and counters, making sure the fridge is emptied, mopping floors... Then I declare myself done. If we don't get the deposit back I don't know what else we could have done

Sounds like your definately doing a great job moving ;D Very Happy for you. Well. Not sure to be happy bout cameras in your veins but maybe it would help to come to some sort of conclusion.

My life has been so busy. Working 45 hours a week and somehow holding it togetheir some days I get home so late I Just head to bed. Been going to bed early and I am maintaining my weigh between 4 lbs for bout a month now. So I"m happy no heavy weigh gain and I'm still working out bout 3 times a week.

Just been really busy and exhausted after a week and on the weekends most of the time I've been sleeping lol. Hope to get on a better routine so I can stop by :) a bit more often.

Got thru half of what I needed to yesterday. Another appt tomorrow. Still need to contact my neurologist to follow up on all of this crud before I leave. My head is killing me today. Started bothering me right after the blood draw yesterday.

I am trying to keep faith about it. I have 2 appts this week in regards to my head. Because hubby has at least part of each if those days off I will be getting my blood drawn for the other tests. I still feel kind of overwhelmed by all of this.

Regardless I have 1 week until the movers show up. I am working steadily at making sure everything is in order. This weekend I cleaned up theguest room and when I found mice waste in the linen closet set off on washing everything in there. I almost have it done all of those loads, should finish it up today. It os sonice to make sure all my linensets are grouped up the way I like before theyget packaged up.

Mary- *hugs* Hun just keep faith in God. You are an amazing woman! And that is a lot to handle right now. Keep trying to get positive about your views of yourself!

I know right now I am trying so hard to get that positiviness to stay within me. But I am having so many days I just am lucky I get up and move. My eating is so out of wack the only thing I am doing is staying focused to at least at a workout in 3 times a week and last week I even failed at that only two times. I too feel like crap that I have this body to give to my husband as his wife and I know i'm not happy with myself.

Just have to keep reminding myself that I am worth it. I will continue and I don't want to feel as bad as I did at my highest weight. I love the fact I can wear size 16's comfortably. I love the fact that not every day I feel like a fat woman. Just things I continue to tell myself to try to stay in a positive mood. All I can say is Don't give up!

My neurologist called me about a week ago and demanded a follow up with me in regards to my MRV. I went for the next available appt she had and was told I was getting referred to a neurosurgeon. I still feel like I am digesting what was said. I evidently have a whole world of problems going on in my head. To the point that the receptionist at the neurosurgeon office agreed when i joked about having the whole textbook as my level of diagnoses.

I have been told I could have blood clots, thinned veins, possible aneurysm, and an "unknown structure" in my brain all in addition to my chiari malformation.O! and I need to be tested for blood disorders that could contribute/ hinder the medication process of dealing with any of this.. Getting all of that thrown at me seems a bit overwhelming/depressing/broken.

Mary, thank you for the spark goodie, I've been having my ups and downs too. Some days I just don't know what 's wrong with me. But that's just a sign that I'm losing control and need to get myself back on track. I'm not sure what you mean about feeling broken and depressed exactly, are you saying that you no longer feel yourself, not able to thrive on what's important to you, not able to focus on what you want ? Thats what I think when I read that. And if that is correct then I have been there as well. For me it was post partum with my first child. I felt like a feeding machine and that was my only purpose. lol. It's not a good feeling for sure. But you recognize it and so hopefully you will find a way to break through that. For me , I had to take anti depressants (welbutrin) but I know that is not right for everyone. No matter how we go about getting through it you need to always remember that you have an identity all your own and being a mother, wife, etc are just branches, extensions of you. They each do change you but do not erase you. You have to do things for yourself that nourish the woman you want to be.
I'm hesitant to offer advice or comfort after the last time I did and some woman attacked me for it, so please know that I'm only trying to make you feel better, and if I'm not lol, please tell me :)

I joked when making an appointment today by stating "I feel like a walking neurology textbook" the receptionist responded "well you should, you have a lot going on"


It has not been a good week for me. I continue to feel miserable about my own body and not in the "Gosh I am so fat" way... I just feel broken and depressed that I have given this body to my hubby to have as a wife for the rest of his life...

Stupid cold is slowing me down (I must have relapsed) but I am still working towards getting everything in order for the movers to be here in less than 2 weeks. In 5 more days I go for another appt. This one will tell me if my field of vision is being compromised by my neurological conditions.

I am hoping we are making progress on the mouse/mice. I haven't seen one in days, have put out new poison and even laced poison in some of the traps he was feeding from but not getting caught in. Once I did that I saw he was eating the poisoned bait and I did a little happy dance. I hope to due away with the traps the evening before the movers show up. I will keep them out until then, just in case.

I think I am doing ok at getting things in order. I am willing to give up on holding onto things that are just taking up space. Today I posted on Freecycle an old projection big screen tv. I had someone offer to come get it tonight, but I missed the reply because I was off cleaning in the girl's bedroom. I hope they will come tomorrow. That will be a big chunk of weight that I will not have to move..


My kids love veggie snacks but I admit to not being as good about eating them

Mary, I hope your feeling a lot better and so are the kids.. Did you end up catching the mouse? And Congrats!! Only 2 weeks left to move wow time does fly along. And it feels like I"m missing something else... hmm..

Anyways I am doing good. I lost the lbs I gained this past week so yay lol and feeling pretty good but exhausted. I would of been on yesterday but I had to work an overnight at kohls but did pretty good.. Had a few too many cookies thou and my tummy sure letted me know lol. Both jobs are doing well and I am still taking the time to take care of me. I got in only 3 workouts this pasted week but still so much better than nothing at all. And overall doing them has made me feel better. Also staying in the truck all day is helping I think with my weighloss efforts. I've noticed if I only pack healthy items I'll snack thruout the whole day but it only ends up being bout 600 calories. I am getting 2 fruits in a day b ut having issues getting the veggies in.. This week I decided I'm going to bring cucumber slices to help on that. Either way I feel good but tired and still motivated to continue on my weigh loss journey :)

So how are you doing with all the packing and stresses of getting ready to move?

I think I am starting to get over my cold. I am trying to find more aggressive ways to deal with mice in the house. I'm getting kind of sick of moving furniture to clean up after them on daily basis.I have a trap that they are eating the bait but it is not catching it. So I guess I will have to change traps. I have changed out my bait as of last night in hopes of poisoning them off. While I love the internet some days I hate it on the days I get conflicting information about a subject I am researching.

Everyone else surviving?

We have now all developed a small cough. I don't mind illness. But I much prefer the get it over fast and furious approach... I'd rather be completely miserable for 2 days than have it slowly develop over a week. It will be over soon and all i can do is keep on with getting things done while we wait right?

Last night we had a nice homemade chicken noodle soup. I could tell the kids were not feeling well because they drank the broth and skipped everything else. When my kids are healthy it is completely the opposite. After they were in bed Rodney the rodent decided to challenge me about my current house. I have been collecting these mice since Feb. I chased him all over my family room and finally lost him near the stairs. I put our freshly baited traps and refreshed others. The fact that they avoid the traps and the poison bait in frustrating, but I was told by the exterminator that they did not want to poison my house with kids under 10 in it due to the risks of the kids getting into the poison.... At least I only have to deal with this until May 16... 3 more weeks.

I hope you got some sleep and that today goes well for you.

I would hope allergies, but we aren't responding to allergy pills. At least it is mild and we seem to be functioning still.

Wow an 11 hour day? that sounds so long. Congrats on getting the workout done even tho you had such a long day

Today is a food shopping day for me as well. We plan to throw together some mason jar salads to accompany left overs for lunch (if we are still hungry after the salad ;) ) On the list of meals planned i have london broil with steamed veggies and homemade rolls, chicken cacciatore, grilled chicken, pork chops, ropa veija, taco salads, and I need a final meal for the week.... Just not sure what to make, maybe a nice meatloaf... Actually I think that sounds like a plan. But since we are out of food already it is one last meal out before I shop and buy the entire store.... Plus I need to buy our munchies..... need to have fresh produce on hand to snack on.

I am so looking forward to moving to an area that has a farmers market every weekend so I can get fresh in season produce!

Heather we miss you!!

Mary I ended up not finding new sneaks last night ;( So I'll have to deal with what I got for another week. I'll just tape up my ankle thou so not gonna worry to much bout it.

I slept well.. I woke up a few times thru out the night and this morning I still feel exhausted.. but could be cause I didn't get to take my iron last night cause I pasted out.. so I'll get in some this morning. Every part of my body ached last night when I was moving around lol. Getting my week planned on my food this week.. Not sure what I really want to have for lunch.. So thinking a salad and sandwich and a piece of fruit... Not sure how fast I"m going to get sick of that.. I like changing my lunch up lol. OH wells I'll be fine. Oh Mary, I was having the same issue driving around last week for work. My water intake is definately a lot lower than it is when I'm at home.. So somehow I have to get more water in even if I have to stop a bit more from driving. I weighted myself this morning.. and it says up another lb... grr.. I'm thinking it's either water weight or I'm gaining muscle.

Anyways gotta get some grocery shopping done since we didn't get it done on Fri.. nor Sat lol.. So today is the day lol. Seems like I still have so many things to do.. ugg lol.. Okies well be back later ;)

Travel mercies were laid upon us yesterday. We left the area around 230 pm and we got to our rental house around 1 in the morning. (our drive down took closer to 14 hours) We figured when we left the area we would pull over and rest between 11-12 that night, but when it got to being that late we were so close to being here we just finished the drive. It was so nice to sleep in our own beds again. I weighed in this morning to a 2 lbs gain. I know part of it was all of the eating out we did this week, then yesterday we ate the easiest to consume while in the car fast foods and limited out fluids so that we wouldn't need to stop more often than the kids requested. I am going to work on our meal plan for the week and hopefully consume enough water to knock those lbs off.

I am sorry your ankle is getting torn up. Make sure to bandage it well while you are breaking in the new shoes so that it doesn't bother it more. I hope you slept well!

How are you doing heather? still not feeling well?

I am fairly sure we will be happy here. We already have friends in the area and one set needs dog sitters about once a month. Everything will work out I am sure :-)

I am sorry you weresick heather. I hope you recover fully soon.

Tammy, good luck with working both jobs. Your plate will be full, but it sounds like you are enjoying it so far.

Hey girls! :( That's aweful you've been sick. I hope you feel better soon.

Mary I am planning on keeping both of the jobs for at least right now. Not sure if it's going to burn me out but I'm going to try. I really wanted to make it a full year at kohls and I'm pretty close to get there.. Aug. Will be a year so.. we'll see. I'm gonna change my schedule so I'll only get a day or two a week so no biggy right now but we'll see.

I'm exhausted. I worked a 7 hour day today and came home and was not pouring concrete but smoothing the surface basically a lot of work phyiscal labor 3 hours later we were finally done. And was exhausted lol than went and did some shopping. I am bout to crash.. So just stopping in to say hi. Also I gained 1.5 lbs or something like that.. Oh wellz. Honestly not worried bout it just living a healthier lifestyle and I am going to succeed :)

*hugs* write ya'll tommorow :)

Mary, thats awesome I'm happy for you and I hope you are very happy there! Find yourself a walking buddy or two! Sometimes you have to go as far as knocking on a strangers (neighbors) door and just asking them. lol. That is what I realized I had to do after being shut in for 5 years in a new city and neighborhood.

Tammy, Very proud of you for getting up early for your workout! I know I'm capable of that because I've done it in the past, I used to get up and out the door at 6am to walk 4 miles with a neighbor lol, but I haven't managed to do that in a couple of years so for you to get up early to get in your workout is AWESOME :)

I have been sick, I mean really sick. Flu or something. So I haven't been on much. But I'm feeling better today. Need to stay away from heavy food which is fine with me , though it's still tempting. On the plus side, I'm all cleaned out and it's encouraging me to only put clean food back into my body! lol sorry if TMI lol.

The kids are also on vacation which is nearly over so things should go back to normal soon. My workouts need to increase but my weight is still dropping. I'm at 214 something :) lol. If I really pushed for it I bet I could be out of the 210's by next wednesday! I guess we will see how focused and determined I can be for the next week. lol
