Life As I Know It

Smash cake

Cake Bites

I am currently watching Toy Story in Spanish with George. He just stares at it. I think he is trying to figure out why they sound different. He has become quite the difficult child at night. He will wake up sometime between two and five in the morning and SCREAM until we go get him and put him in our bed. I've tried just rocking him back to sleep and putting him back in his crib but I will rock him for 30 minutes and he will be sleeping soundly until he feels me standing over the crib. Then he is instantly wide awake and screaming again. So, I just put him in our bed. I am hoping he eventually sleeps in until at least eight, like he used to. He's still cute and fun during the day. I just want to give him away in the wee hours of the morning. What I'm trying to say is, it's not time to work on kid number 2 quite yet.
We had a really fun family party for George last Saturday. We ate yummy food by Glen, opened presents with the friends and cousins and then had cake and ice cream. There is still ice cream in my freezer, which I am proud to say I have not had any since the party, but it is EXTREMELY tempting. I wish I had thought to get gross flavors that I wouldn't want. My weight-loss lately has been very frustrating. This week I have worked out more than ever and I am gaining weight. I am going to attribute this to muscle gain but that is just an excuse people use I think. But, as long as my clothes keep getting bigger I won't worry so much.
Glen is almost finished with the school year! I can't wait to have him around all the time. He will be a big help with George and we will finally get more home improvement projects done. We want to paint the kitchen and add a back splash. We also want to put in grass and a brick patio. Oh, and we are still missing three doors in our house... That should probably be higher on the list...
My job has been frustrating lately, to say the least, but things are getting better. It's really hard to complain about my job when I actually have a job and I get to be home. But sometimes I wish we were in a position where I could just quit and focus on being a wife and mom and finish up my stupid degree. I have eight courses to go. I am not finishing my classes as fast as I want to but I don't have as much time as I thought I would. That and it costs $500 every time I take a class so I have to choose my start dates wisely.
Our third anniversary is coming up and we wanted to do something special. We were thinking about going up to Prescott (where it's nice and cool) and staying in a B&B. This might still happen but I am trying to decide if we can afford to do that and still let me take two courses in June. Also, the only weekend we can go is Memorial Day weekend which means we need to book something soon or everything will be full. Unfortunately, I live with Mr. Indecisive so I will just have to make the decision on my own...
Life is good. Life is great. Life is wonderful! Al infinito y mas alla!

Sorry to hear about your morning alarm. I don't have any advice. All kids are different, but almost all of mine pulled the same thing at some point in the game. It's frustrating, and I usually just caved in and then had to wean them out of our bed. Who am I kidding, we rarely sleep alone.

My SIL just finished a 12 week challenge at Gold's Gym. She had a trainer, and blog devoted just to it. She lists everything her trainer told her and her workouts. If you're interested, I'll have her send you an invite so you can see it. Apparently, your body gets used to stuff, and you have to change up your work outs to get over the hump. It's a big pain if you ask me. Not that I've ever done it. lol

Muscle weighs more than fat so if you are gaining muscle and losing fat it is very common to gain weight especially if you are working out and doing strength training. But you do need to mix it up a bit! Get those muscles doing different things. Though my MIL walked for years and didn't lose any weight until she started jogging and then it all fell off. And she does the same thing every day! Good luck girl! You look great!
