Catch up

As I said in my last post, life has been pretty crazy around here in the last year.

Jeremy left the Navy in June and started his new job. That of course meant moving and that is always stressful. We found a nice house in a nice neighborhood. I am still getting used to it, but I think it will be nice.

I am now officially a Lamaze certified educator. I am still working on updating my class design and finding somewhere to teach. It is a lot harder than it sounds, but I am making progress in the right direction (or at least I hope so!)

The biggest shock of the past year was finding out I was pregnant in August. To say that we weren't planning that is an understatement. We are all very excited once we got over the shock. We found out just before Thanksgiving that it is another little boy. We are definitely done after this. As sad as it is to end this stage of our lives, I am looking forward to the next one.

Meal Plan Monday

My poor blog has been neglected for over a year! I wish I could say I can't believe it has been that long, but really I knew it. Between moving, Jeremy starting a new job, finding out I'm pregnant again, and just life in general I didn't have time to sit down and write. A lot has happened and I will try to catch up soon.

Meal plan:

Breakfast rotates between muffins, eggs, pancakes, cereal and the occasional Pop-Tart.
Lunch is usually leftovers, crackers and cheese, or dino nuggets.

Monday - frozen chicken parmesan
Tuesday - homemade mac & cheese with roasted broccoli
Wednesday - goulash
Thursday - grilled cheese and tomato soup
Friday - chicken casserole
Saturday - leftovers/fend for yourself
Sunday - ????

Monday - Aloha chicken

Wednesday - homemade pizza

Thursday - chicken and biscuits

Friday - Catalina beef kebobs

Saturday - ribs

Sunday - roast beef in crock pot

My poor neglected blog

My blog has been so neglected lately. The holidays really threw me for a loop this year. I just couldn't get into the holiday spirit. I was actually happy to take down the tree and everything. Very unlike me. It was a nice holiday spent with family and relaxing. The boys got spoiled terribly by "santa". I got spoiled by my husband with a Kindle. I am loving it. Reading is a big part of my life and the thought that he put into my gift meant a lot to me.

2010 is going a year of big changes for our family. Jeremy will be getting out of the Navy in July and where we go from there isn't known right now. We are going to be putting our house on the market in March. It is going to be a huge undertaking.

So because of the unknowns in our life right now I have decided to set monthly goals this year. I do have a few long term things, but mostly I am going to work month to month.

January's goals are:
  • Do all the tasks on my Motivated Moms list each week. I used this system last year and it worked well till I started to slack off. I really need to get and keep this house is show shape so this is a must.
  • Do everything on my monthly to do list.
  • Pack up all extra things. We are in serious declutter mode with the house selling. If it is a duplicate or not absolutely needed in the next 6 months it is getting packed up.
  • Work on my Lamaze certification. I have let it slide for awhile and really need to get back to it if I want to sit the exam in April.

I have some longer term personal goals, but I'm not quite ready to share them yet. I haven't worked out all the details yet.

I hope to post more on here with my progress and just tidbits about our life. I miss writing in here.
