Hub will be home tonight

November 10th, 2009 at 04:25 am

Another month has passed and the hub is on his way home tonight. He gets in at midnight and will be home for two weeks. While he is home this time, we have a trip this weekend with friends to the mountains. We rented a house for the weekend and are taking their son and our daughter (both are seniors in HS this year and they've been friends since they were both babies). I am really looking forward to the get away. There is a hot tub at the house...and it is always so nice to sit in it when it is really cold outside.

The following weekend we will have our youngest granddaughter & her aunts birthday party (GD was born on aunts bday) it is also close to GD's dads we get a three-fer in one party!!

Then the hub will leave and will be gone until just before Christmas. While he is home on that trip, and if all goes as planned, we will welcome our newest grandson...who is due Jan2.

I joined weight watchers about a month ago and have lost 10 lbs!! I want so much to get healthy and have decided that I am never going to get there on my own. It feels good to have those 10 lbs gone...and I plan to keep going until I get to a healthy-for-me weight. Brave words as we enter the Holidays...but I have set a goal for 6 more lbs lost by the end of the year.

Because of this, I haven't gone out to eat since the hub was last here. I have been training myself to fix healthy meals for one at home. (and it is much cheaper too)

Ive gotten a good start on Christmas shopping. ALmost done with the grandbabies...and I am going to give gift cards to all the kiddos. Ive finished shopping for my friends...and so I feel good about the holidays being less stressful this year! (yay!) Christmas is one of my fav times of year...and I have always saved money in every check for it so that I have a comfortable, guilt free budget to spend. I will even have time for baking this year, which will be alot of fun!

Life is very good!

    You'd be surprised - November's my best month for weight loss. You certainly sharpen your food avoidance skills!

    Sounds like you have some nice travel plans and a good chance to enjoy being with your husband before he has to leave again.

    He's going to come home at Christmas and wonder where the other half of his wife went!!! ;D

    I always find it's easier to lose weight when DF isn't around. You kind of get into a routine with each other, and if one isn't as healthy as you'd like to be, it's easier for the healthy one to start slipping...
