This Sucks

I am having a hard time these days updating my blogs. The paid offers are slow coming in this month, and I have no desire to write about what little is going on around here. I am still packing, with the hopes of moving before the first of March. We were hoping for the first of February, but I just learned that my tax papers from Izea won't get to us until at least the middle of February, maybe later.

This sucks.

Right now I am listening to the water collect in the twenty or so buckets scattered around this apartment because it rained really hard last night. The sun is out now, but my ceilings will continue to leak until at least tomorrow.

Again, this sucks.

It doesn't help that my back is stiff this morning, my tooth has been bothering me again, and it's also the time when I hate being a girl. I have not been in a very good mood the past couple of days, and... sucks!

I think I am going to go curl up in bed and watch a movie or something...

Goodbye, And Then Hello

Yesterday we said goodbye to Cindy, our therapist. Her six months with us were up, so she turned us over to Elizabeth. She has been sitting in on our last three sessions, and she seems nice enough. Very young, but that's okay. Kelsey was young, and we loved her.

It's been nice that we haven't had much to talk about...things have been pretty quiet around here. It's weeks like this that the therapists try and get Junior to talk about his past, and most of the time he will shut down. Yesterday, he talked a little about it, and I think this is the direction we will be going with Elizabeth.

It will be interesting to see how it goes...


We went today and sorta did our taxes. They are all filled out, but can not be filed until I get my tax paper from Izea. I am hoping it won't be too much longer. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount we are getting back. This is the first year in a while that I have had an income, and I didn't pay any taxes on it through the year, so I knew I would have to pay now. It didn't really make a difference, though, because we still qualified for earned income credit and some other kid tax.

I am just happy that it is enough for us to pay those we owe money too, move, and get Ryan and I laptops. And, if I save the receipt for the laptop, I can claim it as a deduction next year. In fact, the lady who prepared our taxes deducted my yearly cost of internet because I use it to work.

Pretty cool, right?


I am still holding steady at 42 pounds down. I have been eating poorly lately, so I am not surprised that I am not losing. I have already warned the entire family that once we get settled into the new place, we are all going on a diet.

Every. Single. One. Of. Us.

Wish me luck! lol!

Holy Crap, 41!!!

Okay. I love the wii. I give it credit for my weight loss this past week. I was worried that with all the treats and goodies that I would gain back some of the weight I lost.

Nope. I lost another couple of pounds, bringing my total to 41 pounds down! I am so excited! I am even more excited to start eating a little better, too, and seeing if that helps the weight come off a little faster.

So, yay for me!!!!!!
