As I mentioned I am doing the biggest loser contest courtesy of Tib, the exercise QUEEN! In the past I have always made excuses, either I can't do this because my back hurts, I'm too tired, its too hot outside, etc. It was always something. Not anymore, the only person I'm hurting is myself. Excuses won't make me lose weight, won't make me a healthier person, won't teach my kids the right way of living. Only *I* can do that. I will do that, I AM strong enough to push through this no matter how difficult it may be.
My kids will look up to me as a good role model and hopefully take this into their own lives and be one less person on the scale of obesity. I'm removing: can't and won't from my vocabulary...at least in this part of my life. Because I CAN do it. I've been pushing myself and while it is hard at the time, when I'm done, I am that much more proud of myself that I am accomplishing something! I can't control everything in my life, but I CAN control this and I WILL. I am happy that I am making this step and even though some days can be damn frustrating, it will get better and I will be changed, not only on the outside but inside too!
*Oh, and I don't really know if the road to hell is paved with stupid excuses, I just thought it was funny.*

I will be trying to catch up on everyones blogs as well, so be prepared to be hit like a truck with comments from me. No promises, but I'm predicting I will.
Nice to be back...for now!

Please check out Tibs blog and do what you can for sweet Ethan. He has type 1 diabetes and could use any help possible. I've never personally met him, but heard plenty of stories about him, he sounds like such a special kid and deserves only the best in life. Hoping that walk goes great and Ethan most importantly has a ton of fun and support!

Grumpy little old man - just a day old:

That's the conclusion Swedish scientists reached after conducting a study
that took place over a period of 34 years. The credit likely goes to
wine's potent stores of resveratrol. This grape derived antioxidant
hinders the formation of beta-amyloid, an abnormal brain protein linked to
You don't have to tell me twice, I already have a bad memory, I don't need to wind up like the chick in the Notebook! And if you're wondering, I don't normally read 'First' magazine, but the front said: Drop 16lbs in 1 week! I am such a sucker for crap like that.
You don't send us an invitation, I don't know if thats custom since toby is the best man and gwen is a bridesmaid, but still...too bad I don't know where you are registered now, guess I can't get you a gift you stupid bitch. Thanks for telling us AFTER I buy my plane ticket that the rehearsal dinner is on the night I am flying out. I would have bought it for the day earlier had I known. Also, same goes for the bridal lunch gwen was invited to, of course she can't attend since its a couple days before they arrive.Again, I didn't want to go to your stupid wedding, since you ignored the shit out of me the first and only time we met even though I tried to make conversation with you. SO, you give me Gwens dress info (color, code) less than 2 months before the wedding, gives me a TON of time to go order it, and the freaking place takes 10-12 weeks to get it in once placed. You text me over and over bugging the shit out of me during the week if I have ordered the dress yet. I have to obviously wait until I have Gwen with us to go try one on, which is over an hour away from us. I have to kiss ass to get your fucking dress to me on time, and they don't even have you in their fucking computer. Nice. Same applies to Tobys tux, you RUSH us and tell us we HAVE to get there ASAP to get fitted, we do and then AGAIN, they don't have your info in the computer, so we have to bring the measurements in later. WHY??? Because you all haven't gone in to register with them...WHY the fuck did you rush US?!?!? Then you text me, some during the middle of the night about the exact shoes you want for her. Well sweetheart, she's a ten year old tomboy who has never worn heels before. Do you really want her stumbling down the aisle on your big day? I personally think it would be hilarious just because you would get sore over it, but I think more of Gwen. So I got her shoes, the color you want, "strappy", but they are VERY low, almost flat heels. Deal.
STILL. Not.that.big.of.a.deal in the long run, I've dealt with much worse. The insulting thing was that we receive the invitation for the rehearsal dinner, which you know I can't attend because you're a whore and told us after we bought our tickets that it was the night I am flying out...and what does it say on there? Toby M and GUEST. GUEST?!? You have been texting me non stop about the fucking dress and shoes you want, tux, etc for the last 2 months and I'm GUEST?!?!?! Well fuck you.
So next year when we have our wedding, I am going to do the same, it will be addressed to Mr. E and GUEST. I probably will put GUEST in capitals just to get my point across and will make sure not to tell you when the rehearsal dinner is until after you make your flight arrangements. Better yet, just don't come, I'm sure I will see enough of you to last me a life time when we go to your little shin dig.
Signed,GUEST aka Diane (Yes, I really do have a name, or in your cell do you have me listed as GUEST?)
P.S. If I didn't tell you before...FUCK OFF!

Ha ha...can you tell how I've dropped a lot of days? I'm over Mondays and Wednesdays and weekends...those are boring. Tues, Thurs and Friday work for me. So onto today, Thursday, what I'm thankful for.
In no particular order
- My bff - Shes super cool and always has my back. Even through a lot of bologna we had in the past she was still there standing strong. I love you girl.
- Having a car that works - Considering where I work, if I didn't have a car, I would be royally screwed. I love you my little car.
- Corona - Yum. With lime of course.
- Perfect afternoons - the ones where you can sit outside without baking and the wind blows softly around you. Ahhhhhh
Join in - Lets hear what you are thankful for!

#2 - Dumb baby names. - I don't think my kids names are dumb. At all. I did name them afterall. I do know that after I named Madison, 5 million other people did too. I did not follow a trend. I had a good reason for naming her that. You might be thinking great 'president' name. Which it could be. The real reason was - Splash. Yes, the movie. I loved that movie when I was a kid...I wanted to be a mermaid so badly! So, to me its not so bad, but people are always criticizing that name.
#9 - Cell phones for children - Madison has one. Not so she can call her girlfriends and chat about Hannah Montana or what outfit her barbie is wearing this week. She has it because I am cheap and its cheaper for her to be on my plan rather than me calling her dads phone.
#12 - High end child photographers - Yes, I take my own kids pictures, so I'm not paying out the kazoo for one. BUT, I fit the profile of posing them 'artistically' and in black and white. Guilty.
#14 - The Nintendo Wii - We have one. Got it for the girls for Christmas. Secretly though, I wanted to play it. Its great having kids as an excuse to buy things like this.
#15 - Childrens books - Definitely have more books than they read. Some have never been opened. Mostly because Nicky for example has his favorites. He will pitch a fit if he doesn't get to read the ones we have read 5 billion times. My laziness succumbs to reading that same book rather than dealing.
#16 - Wine - Yes I like wine. I really am not a wino, despite what Toby will tell you. I did have 5 bottles open in the fridge at one time though. I was having my own personal wine tasting session.
#26 - Baby Einstein - I didn't buy these because I thought he would become some genius. I really just wanted to let the good o'l tv babysit him for a few minutes here and there when I was doing my school work. It did the trick too.
#27 - Britax Carseats - We have two. I cave to peer pressure WAY to easily. It is a great carseat though, holds up to 80lbs in a 5pt harness. Although I'm sure that if Nicky is still under 80lbs (highly unlikely) by the time he is 8, he will have ripped me a new one for making him sit in a carseat at that age.
#29 - Webkinz - Both girls have these. I did not buy them. I think they are ridiculous.
So I'm not the best parent ever...but I'm pretty darn close!
