Catchin' Up

catchWhew, you ladies are AWESOME!! I am so excited about how many of you have signed up for The Challenge. I can’t wait to see where we all are at when this challenge comes to an end. I suspect we might be able to end this recession ourselves cause our hubbies are going to start solving all the world’s problems they will be so happy.

I had such a lovely blogging break. Thanks so much for coming back around. We had a great Christmas filled with way too much food, way too many toys and, fortunately, more giggles than should be humanly allowed. Believe it or not, I was actually sad school was starting up again this week. Give me a few more days and I will probably be looking for a boarding school, but for now, I am lovin’ all the family time.

And the hubby had both weeks off of work. Can I just tell you how delightful that was. Life just got out of the way and I was able to fall in love with him all over again. He is such an amazing dad and I love watching him with the girls. Note to future husbands: the bar is set high gentlemen. I wouldn’t even bother trying unless you are bringing a whole lot and then some to the table. When he went back to work today, I nearly grabbed onto his legs and begged him to stay home. Instead I just cracked open a bottle of wine and got back to parenting as usual. Letting Dora do all the hard work while I eat bonbons. Of course I am kidding. I can’t eat bonbons on my New Year’s diet.

Seriously, we are stepping up the exercise and cutting off the feeding trough that was the holidays. Why is it that is takes 11 months to take it off and 1 to put it back on. My hubby jump started his weight loss with a fabulous case of food poisoning. If it was the stomach flu, I would have licked him cause there is nothing like a good case of the flu to drop a few pounds. Either way, ladies, we all know how this little weight loss journey is going to end. Me starving myself and losing a half a pound. The hubby eating anything he wants minus a handful and losing 25. Never start a weight loss program with a man, it will only lead to a general hatred of the opposite sex.

On a completely unrelated and pathetic note, I caught the first episode of The Bachelor tonight. I have never really watched this show and I am just saying I am hooked by the train wreckedness of it all. And the crazy, crazy women they have on that show. Pretty sure this show single handily has set back the progress of women about 150 years. But the show on afterward….genius. True Beauty. I set the DVR to record them all. Shallow, shallow TV for those nights when the hubby has a work dinner. He is actually sitting next to me pretending to be disgusted, but I know deep down, everybody loves a little trash TV.

So to sum up I will be back to bloggin, trying to eat better and exercise, watching lots of trash TV and sexin’ up my hubby (sorry Dad). This is looking to be quite the start to 2009. How bout you?

    Last season when it was The Bachelorette, guess who made sure he was sitting right beside me for every single episode? It sure wasn’t my son!

    I never try to lose weight with my man – mostly because he doesn’t ever need to lose weight, but he’s also one of those annoying people who says “oh, my pants are getting looser, and I haven’t even been trying.” I’m telling you, if I didn’t love him enough to do the challenge, I might not like him. At least not his metabolism! ;)

  5. of COURSE we came back around! I was so excited when I saw you had an update in my google reader.

    ok that’s embarassing. I take it back.

    I was ‘glad’ to see your update. sounds a little less stalker-ish than ‘excited’ now doesn’t it?

    I have always liked the bachelor, I have the new one on my dvr. just can’t get enough of the crazy, you know? maybe that can be your new show to write up on blissful-whatever-you-contribute-to (can’t remember off the top of my head… see that proves I’m not a stalker after all, right?)…

    happy new year!

    Oof! My feed reader was all messed up and I thought no one was blogging yet. I’m glad my Bachelor obsession has finally taken hold with you.

    Jen@BigBinders last blog post..Thank YOU!
