2 awesome kids, 3 cities, 7 moves, 1 miscarriage, a few pounds more,
1 separation, the loss of his mom, being broke (a few times), lots and lots of laughs, good friends, nieces and nephew, sisters, brother, in laws, weddings... These are just a few things my 9 awesome married years with George have been like.
We got married when we were both 19. I know a lot of people thought we were crazy.. Looking back on it I think we were a little LOL. I wouldn't change a thing! I would love to post some pictures of our wedding.. But we don't have a scanner. Maybe I will ask George to take a few to work so I can have them on our computer. I would also love to post a picture of the two of us.. But I think we only have one picture together and there is NO WAY he would let me put it on here LOL. He has a thing about getting his picture taken, and doesn't want his face on the internet. For a computer guy.. He sure is scared of the internet!! His real name isn't George for those of you that don't know.. LOL. Oh well.. That's why I love him.. Quirky guy that he is.
My mom comes in 7 sleeps. I was talking to her this weekend and she let the cat out of the bag that my sister is coming with her to visit!!!! I am so happy they will both be here! Char's visit is going to be 4 sleeps and 3 days. Our visit will be short but very fun. We will be doing a lot of tourist stuff.. Which is good cause I still feel like one here. She is coming to The Hip with us. I cant wait to have girl time with my mom and Char. The kids still don't know my mom is coming and they are gonna freak when they see Auntie!!
that's it for now...
*edited: I am attempting to make chocolate chip cookies tonight for George.. so please positive thoughts a few prayrs some crossed fingers and anything else you can think of...

In the Suite at the game
My cheeseball kid.. He did this on his own!!
Watching the game
Marlies lost 4-2 but we all had a good time. George was late getting there because as he would put it "work blew up" so he had to deal with the problem before he could meet us.

Ninja Turtle truck
Every picture they pose this way..
So George came home last night from work and he decided to make Peanut Butter cookies. And guess what....?? They turned out!! What the hell is that? My pride is a little hurt today.. So I have been looking for a cookie recipe all morning. I WILL make a good batch of cookies dammit.. I WILL!!!
I am off to get Jarret on the bus.. Then I am going back to bed. I have been up since 5am! Lets hope Amy sleeps in a bit.. Fingers crossed!!

Anyway.. The lasagna turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. We had leftovers which is always a bonus!!
Jarret came home the other day and told me he signed up for choir! I am so excited! He has a holiday concert on February 15th which he will be singing in. That happends to be the same week my MOMMY is coming for a visit. That is in 19 days btw!!
Can you tell I am excited?? We aren't telling the kids. She is coming in the afternoon and she will pick Amy up from school with us and be at the bus stop when Jarret gets off. They are going to poop themselves.
We are going to Monster Jam tomorrow. When Jarret was 3 we went and on the way home he threw up in the back seat of the car. The fumes got to him. We will be in The Rogers Center so the ventilation will be 100% better and its a lot bigger.

Ok.. choking back my tears here ( I am a very very emotional person btw.. I can cry at the drop of a hat).
Amy is sitting with me and wants to "type somefing" so here it is:
It says "please come to my bday party so you can come" That is exactly what she said.
I will be making my very first EVER Lasagna tonight. I have been married for almost 9 years and I have never made one before. So wish me luck.

I love my kids. They each had one and I apologized for them and they both told how good they were and not to worry about it. Amy said she still loves them and still loves me!! Such good kids I have!!
I was a bit cranky after that.. But its only cookies right?? I think I will just buy the ready made cookie dough in the tube!!
Its been a while since I have put an update on my weightloss. During Christmas my weight pretty much stayed the same. Maybe gained a pound.... Or two.

Also they went on a Street Car for the first time. They have been dying to get on one since moving here. Very cool.
It is also the first day back at school. Amy has been counting down all week. She went to bed so well last night. I don't remember the last time there wasn't an argument about bedtime.. And she fell asleep pretty darn fast. Usually we hear her singing and playing in her bed for about an hour if not more some nights.
Jarret not so thrilled about heading back.. I'm sure he will change his mind once he's there and sees his friends again. He had a crap load of homework over the holiday. He had 12 pages double sided he had to do.. I don't get it.. Why do that to a kid on their "holiday"? I could understand getting the usual one page. Anyway.. In true Jarret fashion he started Saturday and finished last night.. Plus he is missing a page.. So off to a great start.
I haven't mentioned my weight loss in a while.. That is because I wasn't as strict with my program over the holidays. I didn't go CRAZY but I allowed myself to indulge more then usual. The good news.. I only gained about 1 pound maybe 1.5!! Not too bad If I do say so myself.. And I do!! Right after Boxing Day I started back on the program like I use to.. And I am back down to the weight I was before Christmas. Now I will start my exercise program again.. Plus the walking to and from Amy's school will get me energize and motivated again.
Well.. That's about it for now..
