Bad news...Prayers please

If you are the praying type, would you mind to say a prayer for my DH and all of his (our) family?

DH dad died Friday night. He had been in the hospital for about 2 weeks and they were moving him to a rehab facility and he coded in the ambulance. He had signed a DNR so there wasn't a whole lot they could do for him. From what the coroner said there was a blood clot somewhere that traveled to his heart....more than likely it was in his lung and traveled to his heart. He had COPD, emphysema, CHF, diabetes, and morbid obesity. He had been on oxygen for the last 4+ years and slowly gotten worse.

So if you could send some good thoughts, prayers, vibes, etc... I would greatly appreciate it!!! Needless to say, we are traveling and not sure when we will be back home.

I have a post in my head I want to get out...NEED to get out. Hopefully I will at some point this week.

71 Days...

It has been 71 days since I have had any sort of diet soda or any soda for that matter!

I'll say it again.

71 DAYS!!!!!!!!

This coming from the girl who HAD to have her diet coke EVERY day! AT least 1, if not 2 or 3! I can't believe I've done it. I amaze myself sometimes.

You know what's really ironic? I haven't been eating the greatest the last 2 weeks. Christmas, Superjayman was in town, New Year's,'s not been the greatest. And with all the bad eating--I have been CRAVING a diet coke. I haven't given in and I don't intend to. Water is my new best friend...with the occasional tea--UNSWEETENED.

I still can't believe it.

Even the dog is sick!

Yep, that about sums up my week and start of the New Year.

Happy New Year!

Is it spring yet?

Seriously. I am so dead serious. I want it to be SPRING!!! I am sick of being sick, having sick kids, cleaning up vomit, diarrhea, snot, and ear yuckiness.

We went home the day after Christmas to have Christmas with the fam. NEVER again. NEVER! This is why we don't go home for the holidays. My kids get sick, then I get sick, then DH gets it too. Or vice versa...but we all get it. UGH!!! DS1 has been sick all weekend running a very high fever (105 at one point) so I had him at the doctor today. At this point, I just have to laugh about it. Even my real life friends are like "you can't catch a break!" No, I can't but at least I can laugh about it.

So that's why you haven't heard from me. I have all kinds of posts in my head, but lacking the time to get them out. I hope to do a 'real' post soon. I will say being sick sure gets rid of the holiday pounds though. Although my eating today wasn't stellar, tomorrow will be better. I go back to the trainer on Wednesday!

Happy New Year!
