Am I crazy??

So, I joined the Skinny Jeans Challenge with a great group of gals, I'm hoping that having to take pictures of my body every week and own up to what I have done kicks my butt into gear!! I have done really good the last few days, not snacking on anything but non fat yogurt and fresh veggies. I only had one can of soda today and 30 or so ounces of water. Not as much as I should be getting but, it's a step in the right direction, right?? My goal, which may be out of reach is to lose 40-50 pounds by the end of June. It works out to be a little under 5 pounds a week so, if I push, I can do it!
Kadyn and I went for a bit of a walk yesterday but, it got cut short because it started raining. We were going to walk the neighborhood where the streets go up and down but, we only managed a mile and a half, maybe two, half down and half up... Today, we didn't do as much since it was freezing and threatening to rain all day and had started to snow at one point. But, we did go over to the little park across the way and Kadyn climbed and played and we played chase for a bit. Then he passed out around 7:30, I went and took a bath and am now watching Glee! I LOVE this show!! LOL So, I am off to watch it and try to get to bed early so I can get up early tomorrow and go over to the gym and get in a workout before Brian has to go to sleep. Oh, have I mentioned how much I HATE him being on nights?? He goes back on days in June...

New look!

I guess I can just never be satisfied with how my blog looks! LOL But, since Sweet Shoppe has a big sale going, I grabbed some blog wear. And, I am going to grab a few kits that I've been oohing and aahing over while they're cheap. :)

I am currently giving senior Kadyn his bath. In the last few weeks, he has decided that for whatever reason he has to have either Brian or I in the bathroom with him at all times while he is bathing. It doesn't matter if I'm reading or blogging, as long as he can see me! If I leave the room, even to grab a towel right outside the bathroom door,m he gets out and follows me!! LOL I figure he'll get over it soon enough and, it gives me a little extra reading time most nights! But, I'm going to have to make a trip back to the library, I'm running out of reading material! LOL In the last 3 weeks, I have read 5.5 Scott Westerfeld books. I'm almost done with the 6th one and then I need more books! LOL

In other news, I have a telephone interview with AT&T in the morning! It's for a telephone support for DSL self installation position. My brother's been doing it for a few months, my sister in law started training for it a couple weeks ago and a friend starts training in a week and a half. My parents have both been with the company for over 30 years so, It's certainly a family business!! LOL So, fingers crossed! Plus, it'll help us at home, and the benefits are better and cheaper than Brian's! The only downside is that Kadyn will be in daycare. Which is going to be a pain on so many levels. First, we have to find a daycare that is open late. My shifts can range anywhere from 5 am to midnight. Right now, Brian's on nights so, he can't watch him. He'll go to days in June so, it'll all change then. But, we will deal with it as it happens. :) At least the first month or so will be 8-4:30 so, that'll be nice. I just hate that neither Brian or I will be home to get Kadyn in to bed. But, it is what it is.

Now, I am off to do some scrapping. Which reminds me, I have a couple layouts to share!!
