Mommying On The Fly

Not Your Typical Boy Meets Girl..

A long time ago, in a land far far away... (Italy) A girl arrives on a small desolate Island, knowing no one.  Upon first looking at her, this boy was enamored, total love at first sight.  To make a long story short, Boy loved girl, girl HATED boy. 

By an amazing twist of fate both of them ran around the EXACT same circles and shared the same friends which can only bring their paths to Cross over and over again.
Eventually they became friends. 

One night on a jungle gym outside a bar in Israel, this girl decided to take a chance and confess to this boy that she has started having feelings for him.  Unfortunately, this confession was cut short by the military police and a HUGE brawl at the bar between the Israeli soldiers and some American sailors.

This was their last night here and would be back out to sea the next morning.

The flirting continued and the tension was compounding.  Being on a military vessel left no room for exploring feelings physically.. (Get your head out of the gutter, I meant holding hands and other body language, but with your clothes ON folks.. )

The night before arriving Greece, they decided to spend some time in one of the few coed areas on the ship and watch a movie. 


17 yrs ago today... This girl sat on a boat called the USS Simon Lake with a boy.   I can NOT tell you what movie was playing, but I can certainly tell you that @ 2357 He asked her to be his girl, and as she paused he said.. "wait 3 minutes so it will officially be March 28th".. 
I could NEVER have imagined HOW much my life would change from that moment on.. 
 
I'm so happy I said YES!!!

    Menu ReVamp Monday

    I've been doing Menu plan Monday for a while now, and it's been great, but honestly I have not been able to keep with the menu.  I have started doing LESS cooking.  Although I LOVE to cook, I've found that by REVamping the Menu, I can have dinner on the table everyday, but only cook 3-4 days a week, the rest of the days it's merely TOUCHING UP...

    So, my menu this week will look a little more like... THIS...


      • Saturday..................Free Day
      • Sunday..................... Left Overs


      This should take the guessing out of cooking, save us some money when it comes to groceries shopping, and help me keep to the meals I CAN eat...

      All American Smoke out???

       NOPE!!! Just little ole me trying to quit AGAIN!!!!

      I started smoking about 23 years ago... (Sad, I KNOW) and through out my life time I have tried to quit several times.  Some times better than others, and quite frankly the last time was the longest I had EVER lasted.  4 YEARS!!!!

      I decided to quit because we were getting serious about trying to conceive again, and just decided one morning that it would be my LAST cigarette, and it was for quite a while.  Then, last summer with the move up north, we stayed with my sister for 4 days, and I figured ONE would not hurt... OH HOW WRONG I WAS!!!! Haven't been able to kick it since.  Every time I try I turn into a HUGE BEAST (for lack of a better word.. or better yet this being a PG kinda blog.. Bwahahahaha)

      Last week, I decided to REALLY stick to my guns, The last thing I want is my daughters remembering a cancer stick in my mouth, and I smoked my LAST one.  It has been REALLY hard, especially with all that has been going on in our lives.  I have always suffered from depression, and it's been kicking my behind.. (AGAIN I can find a MUCH better word... )  BUT, it's been 14 days,. and I have NOT caved in...


      Wish me luck folks, and pray for my family, that one day I just do NOT snap!!!!!

          Can NOT shake the BLAHS!!!

           I HATE feeling this way.  I hate when I know I have a ton to do, but can't seem to move.  I Hate when it feels like the world is caving in around you.  I hate when things just do NOT go as planned.  I have real issues when stuff starts falling apart, I tend to just SHUT down.  I am truly hoping that getting it all out, and least in writing will help me jump start SOMETHING.
          Totally borrowed this form HERE

          I totally get that life is not fair.. (Kind of reminds me of a quote I read the other day.. “Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting a bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian” ~ Dennis Wholey  How great is THIS quote bwahahaha)
          Ok, back to my pity party... OK NOT really what it is... But my tenants just through us a curve ball, and are terminating the lease early.  I don't believe they have a pot to piss in when it comes to the reason, but still does NOT make the fact that we are screwed any less real.  A lawyer will cost us the college fund of one child.. lol.. so, we MAY just have to cut our losses and hopefully not lose our house.  To be honest what makes me even MORE mad is that for TWO months, they couldn't stick it out and just hang in there, instead they just screwed us.. 
           
           and on top of all THAT.. Hubby and I have been toying with the idea of trying to conceive again... We tried for 12 years before getting the little miracles that rock my world, but with all this going on, I'm not sure it's a good time.  The deal was if we were NOT pregerrs by our 39th Birthday we'd just call it a day and count our blessings.  That will be in NOVEMBER.. (OK.. all you SILVER lining folks can chime in HERE... bwahahaha I am and always have been a glass 1/2 empty kind of gal. Just glad I married the worlds GREATEST man... when THAT happens he miraculously appears and just fills it to the rim.. Usually with VODKA.. . I try not to harp on the negative on here, but sometimes it gets away from me.. lol) 
           
          My computer called it quits and it costs TWO car payments to fix it.. /sigh/  Anyone have a few grand they want to donate to the piss poor Lisa fund?
          I hope you know this has already started to help.. HECK.. I may not even HIT post... bwahahaha Blogger therapy  A LOT cheaper than professional help... (Which by the way no need to tell me I need, I totally KNOW... But when I went down that road a few years ago, REJECTION was the LEAST of my issues.. I was passed on from therapist to therapist at least 10 times in ONE month... I think I'll PASS!!) Excuse Mr. PHD, you paid HOW much for all those letters that follow your surname??? Bwahahahaha 

          Anyhow.. I've vented a bit, and can't honestly remember WTH I was talking about.. Note to self... When ranting lay OFF the sauce..

          Shake What Your Momma Gave Ya!!

          I met a work out buddy the other day at the YMCA.  If you have been following me for a little bit, you know the Gremlins have been taking swim lessons there, if not you can catch up on it here.  Well, my bud is a fellow mom of multiples, she has adorable triplets and a teen, and she absolutely rocks!!!
          She gets me MOVING, play dates, coordinating stuff for the kids at the YMCA, and now working out.  She was the one who suggested we try signing up for a Zumba class.  I have always been intrigued with the idea, but always felt I may have been overwhelmed because I am so out of shape, and not to mention the fear of looking foolish.  I just couldn't shake the scene from Stephen King's "Carrie" during the prom and all you can hear is her mother chanting, "They're all gonna laugh at you."

          But, I couldn't wuss out, I had just met my buddy, and I skeptically agreed. 


          First class was mighty interesting.  It was kind of hard to follow the instructor, but the moves were up beat, the music was excillerating, and I was MOVING!!!!..  I was actually enjoying it, after about the third song, I glanced at the clock, and the sence of relief was amazing.  The class was almost over, and I MADE it.  I looked over at my friend, with that overwhelming sence of self accomplishment and smiled.  She smiled back, (at this point I'm nodding and smiling even harder, because I KNOW what she's thinking.. we MADE it) she points to her watch, and says, "We're half way there." 

          Honestly, I was at a loss for words, but felt like I had nothing left in me to keep going and although my body felt horrible, the fear of the shame kept me right there, shaking and dancing on.


          When the class was finally over, I was beat, but so very proud of myself.  I soon came to the realization that this really wasn't so bad, I actually felt GOOD.  I hadn't felt THIS good in YEARS.  Actually, loved it so much I ran out and bought the Zumba for our Kinect the next day.  NOW? I can't get enough of it,  I absolutely LOVE our Zumba class.  Although I must admit Mondays are the best... I think all the seniors flock to that class, and it gives me more mass to hide behind...

           I have been struggling with losing the last 35lbs, and I'm truly hoping this will help.  I guess if I can be completely honest I haven't been trying TOO hard.  I have absolutely NO discipline when it comes to curbing my eating.  I'm a self diagnosed food addict, and that is probably why NO diet has ever truly worked for me.  It wasn't until I started slowly changing SIMPLE things to the way I cook and eat that I've lost the 115lbs.  Don't get me wrong, I feel that in itself is a great accomplishment, but I've gotten stuck.

           I love to eat, I think more than ANYTHING else in this world. 
          It really is quite sad, and my body shows it...
          So, what makes TODAY any different, you ask?
          NOTHING!!!!

          But, I love ya Zumba... I think I have found something that works... YAY!!!
