And He's Off....

This is my sons last weekend home. Next week he will fly out to meet his ship. For safety reasons I won't say where. But I am so going to miss him like crazy.

He is my oldest and it was hard as can be when he left for boot camp but now on to a full on deployment. He is so excited and I am for him but I'm a mommy and I am gonna worry about him a lot. I'm so glad he is going to see the world and I am so proud of what he is doing. I know a lot of people have no real appreciation for he is doing but I do.

I hope that he takes lots of pictures. Who am I kidding, he's my son, of course his camera will be clicking away-lol! I told him, "all you have to remember is get mom a Rosary where ever you go." My kids know how much I love the Rosary.

So here he starts to really see the world and I am happy to know that we raised him right and got him out the door in one piece. I'm gonna miss my son. I look forward to hearing his voice when he calls home and seeing all of his pictures.

Happy New Year!

Yes, that's right...We are all alive!

We have survived another year and have so much to prepare for in this new year. But what about last year? Was it what you expected? Did you accomplish anything?

Well, for me it wasn't at all what I expected. I had all of these plans and really didn't get them done. For the past few years I've told myself I am not going to set any New Years resolutions...Why? I never stick with any of them and it all becomes a big lie.

Well it's time to do something. I am over weight and I am not happy with it at all. What bothers me the most about it is I want to be healthy for my kids and myself. My back kills me. I don't like that pain.
I hate where I live. Most of my friends are in Virginia and at least there I could go for walks with my friends. Not here. So I sit and do nothing.
I love to cook and love to eat what I cook...humm... That's a problem cause I'm a good cook-hahaha!!
So I guess I need to learn to cook differently. This is gonna go over well. I am not sure where or how I am gonna start.
The funny thing is that when I am pregnant I will follow a diet to the T. After words it's like a free for all. But I have 8 awesome reasons for changing my way of eating so that I will live a healthy and happy new year!
