Found a pair of my mom’s old glasses as I was cleaning my Dad’s room, and I give in….yes I admit it, I see a resemblance between me and my mother now I put these on! That’s all I’ve been hearing the past few months, but I never saw it until now!
I am now unemployed.
Today I need to clean the house because some insurance lady is coming tomorrow to inspect it.
I’m gonna wear my fitbit and see how many steps I take just to clean. I’m also interested if it’ll be easier to lose some pounds now that I won’t have a desk job, sitting behind a computer 40 hours a week, compared to being up and about working on the house now.
Oh, BY THE WAY, check out our Save the Dates :)
Inspired by the fiance who is in love with anything superhero, but I didn’t want to choose one specific one, I wanted something generic.
Our wedding isn’t till September but I knew it was gonna be difficult finding a wedding band that fit my engagement ring properly (apparently that’s the flaw of having a stone TOO BIG).
We went to the mall, looked at about 5 stores…keeping options open…then we both found our rings at zales!
A nice benefit that they’re both from the same store.
I feel so accomplished. We did a big part of the wedding-planning bit :)
I’m gonna try this thing again.
I just can’t seem to completely leave this blog!
How is everyone? I have two days left of my job then I will be unemployed! I’m taking some time off to help my dad organize the house and go through some of my mom’s things. Which will also give me more time to hopefully workout!
Or that’s the plan.
I also plan on looking into starting my own at-home bakery :)
This is now my journey: planning a wedding, getting healthy, managing life after the death of a parent, and looking into my own at-home bakery!
Wish me luck!
I just finished reading a book Thats been on my list for years and I finally got around to it.
The ending is kind of sad and it really put me in a funk. Especially since it’s after midnight and I’m “about to go to bed”
So I started to catch up on social media to help get my mind off negative things before bed, and then I started looking at my pictures on Instagram…then of my mom and it really hit me.
I miss my mom.
Yeah it’s been four months and I have my episodes or my periods when I’m just kind of down…and tonight was one of them. I started balling tears in bed and woke up willy.
After I calmed down I told him to go back to sleep and I would just watch tv.
Right now I just wanna curl up on this couch and stay here the next two days. I’m almost afraid to go to sleep now. That’s probably thanks to the darn book.
It’s a good book… just think it has a time and a place…and tonight was not the right time to finish it.
Of course my resolution is to get into shape and dedicate myself ESPECIALLY for my wedding this September!
I recently restarted the C25K program but this time with a friend and her bf so I have more motivation
And starting February willy and I will be going to the gym at 5am again. With his coworker who will train us! Even MORE motivation!
And I’m so proud of my dad for opening his own gym membership too!! He’s been gaining a lot of weight over the years but since my mom has passed it’s been a lot more. He’s admitted to being depressed and only wanting to eat and sleep so hopefully this will help him get in better shape physically AND emotionally! :)
How’s your New Years so far?!
Growing up, one of my favorite things about Christmas was when my mom would bake her peanut butter cookies…today was the first time I baked her cookies since she passed. Instead of being sad I made myself feel she was right next to me baking her cookies. This will always be the one thing I can pass down to my children: grandma’s peanut butter cookies
