soooo thirsty

OK.. so, I've been home two days now and although some things are going well, others are just not jiving with me at all.. and I hit a new low today... Meltdowns aren't cute on my two 2yr olds, but even uglier on 37 yr olds... trust me, mine was NOT pretty today...
I didn't walk into this expecting it to be a walk in the park, but I guess reality is harsher than imagination...
I have been having a hard time with getting water down, first of all.. I have been soooooo thirsty... I want to GULP, it down, and know I can't. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be baby sips or regular sips.. so I take a few tiny sips, and put it down, and my problem is by the time I remember to sip again it's meal time... and NO drinking with meals right?? Let's not get into the protein... I HATE what I have, but took a trip to GNC this afternoon, I must admit, My husband had to hold me up during our trip to walmart, because it came to a point I couldn't even push the cart. It was scary....

Now... Head Hunger... that is what has made me the MOST miserable this morning and the cause to my major meltdown... and it makes me angry when folks tell me, but this is for the better... No STICK Sherlock.... Just don;t try and tell me what it's like in my shoes unless you've worn them... It infuriates me... I know I'll appreciate it and they are only trying to help, but when you're dealing with folks telling you it ONLY food, but can;t quit smoking, or their caffeine addictions... come on man it's ONLY a cigarette... right??? but this morning was rough for me... ALL I could think about was all I could NOT have especially that BIG MAC... and I KNOW I was NOT hungry...

armed and ready for a better tomorrow...

Surgery Update

Well, I survived the liquid diet... Even through Thanksgiving....
The day of the surgery was soooo hectic.. I had to get up at 0330, to get the gremlins ready and dropped off to my mom... once that was accomplished... (might I add that this has been the hardest thing I have EVER had to do in my life... willingly leave my girls in the care of someone else...) I cried myself sick... all the way to the hospital.. Once there, we realize we are in the wrong spot... lol.. finally after walking through most of the hospital, we found were we had to be... dum dum duuuuummmm... checked in and ready to go... last thing I remember was saying good bye to my husband, and scooting onto the table.. and that's it...

BUT when I awoke... Holy Heck... they had a hard time waking me up, so by the time I came too, all pain meds had worn off... YES... full blown PAIN... once we caught up a little on the pain meds it wasn't toooo bad.. except the nurses couldn't figure out why I had such high blood pressure and heart rate... oh well... If my Doc isn't worried neither will I be...

did I mention I lost a total of 13lbs on the 1 week liquid diet?? so, I'm dozing as I write... will update more later...

Today is my 14 yr anniversary.... wooo hooo, and my Pre-op appointment... I've made up my mind to have weight loss surgery.. I have been plagued with this weight and no matter how hard I try or what I do, I can't loose the weight.. I'm an addict, and there is NO cure..

The appointment went well, I'm nervous, it's becoming more real...
Had to sign tons of forms, and was informed I will begin a liquid diet one week out.... so, Monday the 23rd...
I have already ordered my meds, and protein just didn't think I'd be starting a week ahead... I am an addict, and his should be fun...

All liquid all the time...
I will be doing my prep shopping tomorrow.. and doing a TON of cooking this weekend so I can leave the fridge stocked for the family, since I think cooking would be TORTURE....

The flying toddlers

I always heard how trying it was to fly with a toddler, but having been in the travel business for soooo many years, I thought I had this covered. Are you laughing yet? Well, if you are, then you have done this, and are very aware of just how WRONG I was...

We flew out to visit family last weekend, and because there was a great deal for flights, we decided to give the flying a shot.. It would actually be less expensive to fly and rent a car than we would have spent on gasoline and tolls, not to mention 1 1/2 trip instead of 12+ hrs in a car.

I must say, it was magnificent as far as the girls are concerned. By the time we hit the tar mack, Star was KNOCKED out, and I'd say 1-2 minutes after heading up, Luna was out as well.. and when they did wake up, they did very very well, we even had to wake Star up on the flight home. I think scheduling these flights around their nap times helped tremendously.

So, why was I bitching you ask??? My problems weren't with my traveling companions, but with the stinking Airline. I guess you get what you pay for... Cheap Tickets = Misinformation, poor customer service, and rude Flight Attendants. And by my previous comments, I'm sure you know they weren't rude, or have their panties in a bunch because the twins were unruly... God only knows...

We're heading back up North for Christmas, and YES we will be driving...

Finding Strength

I may complain and whine at times, but in all reality.... It's crap... I am truly blessed... so what if I'm tired.. only slept a few hours... @ least those few hours were in a bed, with A/C... Now that I think of those that sleep in sand ditches, cardboard boxes, or benches... May complain about my girls, then I think of those that have lost their children, had them taken away, or just can't have any and wake up to empty arms everyday, while I get hugs and kisses... or complain about missing my husband, and think of those who's husbands beat them, humiliate them, or those whose husbands don't make it back, and I have to be grateful, that this is ALL I have to complain about, and that soon he will be here next to me... That we HAVE a country for him to defend, and a purpose for his absence... and grateful that I have a GOD to thank regardless of the imperfections and unanswered questions, for with all this I find strength... and realized, Life is GOOD, and I need to stop wasting it worried about the negative and start appreciating the gifts, so that I may begin to start LIVING...

What have moms come to...

Found this video n YouTube, from mom logic...

It is obviously a joke, a satire, but it has to make you think. It's a obvious exaggeration of what this world is coming to. We as a human beings are becoming more and more obsessed with our appearances and maintaining our youth.. Unfortunately we are passing this obsession on to the children... It is VERY obvious that things are dangerously progressing at an alarming rate these days where our youths are concerned... Sex, drugs, diseases, beauty, these were things that were NOT on the mind of a child in my youth... NOW? it's everywhere... My 10 year old niece knows about VD... WTH... at 10, I was making clothes for my barbies, NOT worried about VD....

Ok, so I'm a reality TV junkie.. Without a computer for several months, I found myself channel surfing, and mesmerized by the unfortunate suffering and ignorance of my fellow man, woman, and fool. Don't get me wrong I don't watch them ALL, but I have a few that make me laugh..

Some, are just a little out of hand, and it seems that anyone can get a show these days too.. Just saw a new one coming called.. "House Husbands of Hollywood" Come on now... lol..

Nothing like hitting your Blogerversary and going offline.. But thank you all my wonderful followers that refused to give up on me and sent me all those sweet messages. We're all OK, and pushing forward.

It has been a long few weeks..

but to sum it up... My hubby came back from deployment, was home for 2 weeks and they deployed him again, he came home for 5 days and is now gone AGAIN... Did I mention it hasn't even been 5 months since he returned from an 8 month deployment???

The family is doing great... The girls are growing like weeds, and getting smarter and smarter everyday, though I must admit, sometime too smart for MY own good.

But the big news is..... I got a new laptop... yup.. our computer had a twin meltdown (my daughter learned how to open my hubby's water bottle and decided to dump it in the tower) .... but hubby surprised me with a new Mac right before he left..

soooooo strap yourselves in... I'm Back!!!

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
