Move it and lose it!

I have been using the Wii Fit as a postpartum-weight-loss-possible-solution. Since it is winter and if it's not snowing, it is negative a million degrees in Illinois. I looked online to see if I could find anyone who has actually had success with the Wii Fit and losing weight/shaping up and really couldn't find any success stories; but not for the reason you would think. The reason I couldn't find out if people had success, no one stuck with it.Might be a little gross if post-partum bodies freak you out...Collapse )
So my last few posts have not been very uplifting or happy... I tend to only write when I want to vent. No worries today though. I have an uplifting update! On December 15th, 2013 I had my baby! His name is Elliott Maxwell and I think he is just simply adorable! No joke, I know all parents think their babies are just the cutest things ever, but I'd like to think that I am realistic enough to know the difference between an ugly baby and a cute one. I've spent a lot of time around babies and please don't think I am ridiculous in thinking that not all babies are cute. Usually the iffy-looking ninos grow into their features and become beautiful children. Not to be too disgusting, I wanted to write today about birth and our little new adventure for the past 12 days.

It may be a little vulgar/graphic, but that's birth...Collapse )

Life after baby!Collapse )

First comes love, then comes marriage...

I haven't written in a long time and when I did, I thought about it and deleted it the whole entry. We should all know by now that I am a person who plans things out. It was a very spontaneous decision to move back from Arizona to Illinois; literally we had planned almost nothing except not to renew our lease and in a month planned/finished arrangements to move back. It took me a month to pack up the whole apartment and my mother-in-law helped us book the moving truck. We drained our savings and bit the bullet moving in with the in-laws.

Here we are, just over a year later...Let me update you!Collapse )

The Past (2 weeks) unfolded

I love my new job, have I mentioned that lately? I know I don't really stick with posting much around here, not that it really matters, but I really don't have much to say. This new job brings fairly normal students who do not need much outside-the-box attention. It's nice to not feel drained everyday when you come home from work. At the same time though, sometimes I feel like I could use a better challenge... Then it goes back to this: I can eat again. My old job had my so stressed I could not keep down food and doctors told me I had gastroparesis. I don't. I could eat starting the day after I quit my job.
It's really not that interesting...Collapse )

Uh oh, there goes another rubber tree...

So I just listened to my voicemail from about a week ago and have gotten news. My old principal, who was on a plan of correction and made me miserable, is leaving. It sounds forcibly. It makes me happy... and sad. I could have stayed. I also wouldn't have a great job now... Oh, curiouser and curiouser.

I also feel bad because the school has completely gone down the shitter and people are miserable, but karma is quite a lady.
That is all.
