I have started to get serious about my workouts--yes, I know--even trainers have a problem with slacking. I just can't figure out how I have managed to ever so effortlessly gain 20 lbs in the last year. There could very well be a medical explanation. . . but I have to take just a little bit of responsibility for my poor time management, terrible eating habits, and disillusion that I was doing what I should be to lose weight. It has been a very frustrating process--especially since I don't have any summer clothes that fit anymore. I am thankful for the warmer weather. We have been out biking, walking, running and playing at the park and in the yard. It should also help when Jada starts to sleep though the night. . . she has been successful the last two nights! I hope it continues!!! We are exhausted!!!
We are still waiting for the creepy construction guy to finish our sidewalk. He botched the job and now has yet to fix it. Choose wisely when you have work done to your home. It has not been a very positive experience. The good thing about it all is the city of Bloomington is holding our money and actually pays out the contractor--so they don't get their money until we are satisfied and there really is no argument. Too bad, so sad, dude! All that is left is our driveway. I hope the sidewalk is done before they come to finish the driveway. We were able to get all of this stuff done through a program/low interest loan through the city of Bloomington. I'm thankful we can't afford to do anything else--this is way too much stress for my liking! :0) I do know that it will be awesome when it is all done!!
Not much else on the forefront. Just the usual stuff that keeps us as busy as the next family! I can't wait for it to be consistently warm--even if I don't have any shorts that fit! haha! Here's some fun pictures!
Kaiti and Jakob on Birthmother's Day (the Saturday before Mother's Day). We have made it a tradition to spend the day together and celebrate our family. It was a really fun day!! We just hung out, played outside, ate pizza AND McD's, and just talked and talked and talked!
Our awesome bike trailer! There is a screen that comes over the front when we are riding. I am still working on getting a good fit with Jada's helmet. They are so safe in the trailer that the helmets probably aren't really necessary. . . but I just want to get the habit going.
