*tap tap tap* Is this thing on?

So I am not neglecting this thing. I just haven't felt like have had anything to write about lately. Just in a funk I guess.

The Boy finished school last week. There was a little preschool celebration program. The next day we attended "step-up" at the school he will attend in the fall for Kindergarten. When it was our turn I cried.

We had a nice long weekend. It was rainy and dreary on Sunday and Monday but we spent some family time together.

In just a little bit we will be hitting the road for our little vacation. We are headed to SW Wyoming for the high school graduation of the Husband's cousin. The Husband and I plan on finishing up the 6th Harry Potter book that we have loaded on the Ipod. When we come home we are going to go through Yellowstone National Park.

Next week we start tennis and baseball. I should have some interesting stories from those experiences. :) Next week also starts the summer health challenge at my work. YEAH!!

Better finish packing!

Mountain Dew

I have not drank a full Mountain Dew in AGES. I loved the stuff when I was growing up but then I switched over to Coke and Cherry Coke. The Husband loves Dew and if I am desperate I will have a couple sips of his.

Well, have any of you tried this? This is the Mountain Dew of my youth. The first 2 ingredients are water and sugar. There is no high fructose corn syrup to be found. Probably a good thing it is only going to be around for a few weeks. It definitely has a different/better (IMHO) flavor.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should buy a bunch of cases of this stuff so I can get a Dew fix every once in a while? I would have to hide them from the Husband though. :)

I better go and get a few things done while on my sugar induced high before I crash in about an hour.

I'm now on the other side

It doesn't feel any different. Was it supposed to feel different? I think someone forgot to flip the switch on Saturday...

I am talking about my 30th birthday. I was actually kind of looking forward to it. I made jokes about dreading it and being so old but in reality, I'm good.

The day came and went without much fanfare. Well, except for 30 balloons staked in my yard that magically appeared overnight. I still haven't figured out who is responsible for that. People kept slowing down all day, I think they thought we were having a garage sale or something. Ha!

Anyway, I feel the same. It was pretty much a regular day except I got to take a nap and while I napped the Husband and the Boy went and got me cards and flowers. We went to supper as a family and then got a DQ blizzard cake. Of course since it was my birthday they took out all of the fat and calories and I had a nice big slice. :) My big gift was a combined Mother's day/Birthday present. I got to pick out some new running shoes since the last pair had seen too many miles. They are really great and I took them for a spin around the trails at the Capitol yesterday afternoon.

I am blessed to have another year on this earth to spend with my family and friends and I look forward to all this decade has to offer.

Shrink into Summer Weigh In-EEK!

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

Alright, I knew this was going to be a bad week. Could be worse but, of course, could have been better.

The Numbers:
UP 3.1#

Wow, that was hard to type for the world to see. Back on track though. I won't hit my 30 by 30 goal unless I get some sort of stomach bug in the next 2 days. ;) I am going to see where I am on Saturday the 9th and adjust the due date accordingly. Most likely it will be May 27th which is the day we leave for our family vacation.

Onward and upward (or should I say downward?)

Why is it that your life is so wonderful while you are on vacation and then you get home and...WHAMO!!!???

I had a wonderful time down in Arizona with my girlfriends. We sat in the sun, played in the pool, shopped, and laughed until we cried. The sunshine replenished my vitamin D and I really do feel better now. Thank you so much to B, T, & L. Love you ladies!

Yesterday it was back to the same ol' same ol'. The weather is turning nice here though. Although I will be de-programming my kids for weeks I think. Too much Gma and Gpa time. ;) This was evidenced by the Boy's answer to my innocent question when we were leaving my mom and dad's house on Sunday.

Me: Did you both have a good time at Gma & Gpa's?
Boy: Yeah, until YOU GUYS got here.
Me: Okay then.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
