Monday Feb 14, 2011 - Count down to Cruise day..

I have two more days and then we are gone on our cruise.  I am so excited and ready to go.  I have everything packed and marked everything off of my list and counting the hours now.  This will be our first real vacation in a long time together.  This is our valentine present, anniversary and his birthday all rolled into one big 4 day present.  I am more ready just to have the time alone and no one under foot. 

The kids have settled in and I feel like I am smothering and can not walk in my own house.  My god how much stuff does one little baby use.  I can not breath for people and I know it is just because I am not use to it and the house is so small.  Really the kids have been great and have kept the house pretty clean so I can not complain on that issue and I am getting really attached to little Matthew, but I want my house back. 

My eating has been pretty good this weekend and I have stayed on track so we will see what my next weigh in brings.  I hope to get to weigh in this week, but we are leaving the next morning so I will just have to wait and see.  I have thought about taking my scales with me, but I understand that I can go weight every morning in the exercise room and work out at the same time.  I hope to get up and on the treadmill every morning or at least walk around the ship and take the stairs.   

I am going to post lots of pictures when we get back and add some progress pictures to my blog.  I have not posted any in a long time so I will get caught up.  I miss being able to post at night and read other blogs.  I have my laptop card and I will try and get time to see if it works tonight.

Have a great day...

I feel for you, Debbie having the kids there. We were recently in a similar situation and I was very unhappy until they finally got on their own. Now we are all happy and settled and the kids are doing better than they expected they would on their own. I love my grandchildren but I was like you. I wanted my house back.
