Quick Catch-up

I have come down with a horrid cold and have only been doing the minimum amount needed to get by! A quick update of our week:
Ian finally began taking a bottle again on Wednesday. I don't get it, but whatever...he is back on the bottle!
Eli and I started swimming lessons. I swim with him and was amazed that he did so well! He was "swimming" (doggy paddle) all over the pool about five minutes in to the lesson...I was sure we would spend most of the time trying to convince him to not cling to me....guess I was wrong!
On February 23, I started a Healthy 100 Day Challange at work. I am not "dieting" per se, but have switched to diet pop, have increased my water intake, cut way down on snacks, increased the amount of fruits and veggies that I eat and started with some light physical activity. In two weeks I have lost 10 pounds and I am so proud! My goal isn't to lose weight, but to feel better and be more active so I can keep up with these boys, but the weight lose is something they are tracking for the challange and I was shocked when I stepped on the scale yesterday! Woo-hoo!
Along this same track....we got out Girl Scout cookies in last weekend! Yummy! I normally would have inhaled at least one box right away, but I have only had six cookies total!!! I love the thin mints and the peanut butter patties....I am very proud of the restraint that I have shown here!
I am getting spring fever...I actually am looking forward to spring cleaning! I am going to have to send Ian away for the day to get anything done, but I actually have ambition this year!
We are so ready for camping! We love to go camping and at the end of the summer last year, we bought a new to us 37 foot long camper! We only used it a few times last year, but are planning many camping trips this year and I can't wait! We thought that my husband's truck would be able to pull it when we bought it, but we were wrong, so for about six monthes we have been looking for a four door truck or an SUV that would be able to pull it. So...
This week we bought a new truck. It is a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a Crew Cab (four doors). I will post pics later! I think that we are going to sell our van and use the truck as our "family car"....we still have to figure that out exactly.
I was able to go have coffee with several girlfriends this morning and that was nice...we never have enough time, but it is great just to sit down and catch up.
We have had some great weather this week. Thursday was 72 degrees here! Today it is 47 and rainy, so it makes it easier to stay in and get things done!

  1. Hope you feel better!! I inhaled 10 girl scout cookies (the purple box) last week. Ugh! ANd where are you doing swimming lessons at? I may enroll Nathan in them at the Y this year again but its teacher/child and so I am not in the pool with him so that makes me nervous.
