Juggling Life

It has been a while since I wrote in my blog and there are many reasons why. I shall entertain or bore you with the numerous reasons. I've been juggling life and at times when you're juggling things one of them will fall and smack you right in the face! That thing for me was the wedding stress! Oh Lord, at one point I wanted to just cancel the wedding and elope because the pressure was too much for me. Worrying was my state of mind. I worried about everything and felt like it wouldn't go away.

Finally, Nat and I sat down and made a list of everything we needed to do and slowly but surely things are finally getting all checked off and I am so relieved! I still have a medium sized to-do list but it's better than having a mile long list. After some much needed stress relievers like not doing anything wedding related for a few days and visiting my best friend/maid of honor in PA...I feel so much better. I am now once again looking forward to the big day because I am peaceful about it.

Yesssss...I'm back to being at peace about the wedding. I just want to marry the man I love and forget about all the lil bits of BS that really don't matter! Oh yea and I've lost about 15 lbs so far and I am so happy. I cannot wait to lose some more.

In other news...This was me about 2 weeks ago:

Yup that was me jumping for joy. (Well, it's a dramatization shot of me.)
And yea, this was Nat and I also jumping for joy. (Again, a dramatization of us)

And that's me again the next morning. (Those doubles look nothing like me!)

And a Cartoon drawing of me. (Drawn to scale.)

I posted all the above pictures to simply illustrate that
You are looking at newly hired woman! When I quit my job, I stated that my next job would be working with children and I am elated to report that I will be working with children as a Nanny.
Lol...I just had to throw that up there! I used to watch the show and think it was funny. Who would've known I'd become a nanny!

I'll be caring for the cutest set of twins, 1 girl, 1 boy! They are so cute and the family is really nice and down to earth. I am very excited about my new job.
Well until next time...take care!

Consistently Random Blog

Well, hello there! To my few blog readers, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog and the lil kudos I get here and there! I'll try to keep you entertained.

So as always, I'll update my blog with the ish going on in my life.

Update on my dad. Well after my last blog entry, we had a roller coaster ride of emotions due to his health. He looked well and was getting better, however somehow he developed a blood infection. This freaked me out and made me extremely nervous. I never showed it but inside I became very sad about it. Thankfully the doctors reacted quickly and he was given the "OK" to go home. He went home this past Tuesday and feels so much better being home without an IV or monitors beeping every friggen hour. He was weighed yesterday and has lost 23 lbs. so far! 1 week after his Gastric Bypass and he is down 20+ is amazing. I am rooting for him and each day I pray he gets healthier and happier with his weight loss.

In regards to my weight loss. I have only lost 2 pounds and it is making me frustrated. I wish I would lose more but my trainer told me it's a slow process. I just get impatient and want to yank my hair! I get so annoyed so quickly. I jog on the treadmill for 30 mins 4 times a week and I see my trainer 2 times a week for an hour. I figured by now I would have dropped more. I stick to his diet like glue. I don't eat any thing outside of his regime and thought that I would have dropped more than 2 lbs. by now. I am praying I lose more!

My hubby to be was given a PS90x DVD which is a workout video. He did it once and says he's going to do it again. I highly doubt it. I love him but he isn't into the fitness thing. Men have it so easy sometimes, they just rent a tux and show up for the wedding! I have to go on a hardcore diet plan, grow my hair out, and jump through hoops and loops to get my wedding planning done. Sometimes I wish I had a penis instead of boobs. I just hate the double standard of the wedding customs. I have to look like a perfect doll, all prim, proper and pretty. The man just shows up in a penguin suit, gets plastered and that's it.

Job Update: So I've substituted a few times and the first day was the worst. The kids were running around, tattling, complaining, coughing, crying and having violent outbursts. I was calm but by the time I got home, I was drained! The next time I subbed was much better. I gained a better control of the class room and already knew what to expect with certain kids. I look forward to going back and I still want to teach. I didn't let the first crazy day push back my goal. I've been networking at the school and I hope I am impressing them.

I also applied to be a nanny and after an extensive background, drug, fingerprint and reference check I have 2 interviews with 2 families coming up. I am excited! I hope the families like me and think I'd be an excellent caretaker of their children. Wish me luck!

Whether a nanny job or teaching job snags me first, I know I will be happier working with children that I was working for the demon zombies of the corporate world.

I'll keep you posted! Anyway...I am off to a DVD date night with my good friends Jean & Jessica. We are going to watch Role Models. I hope it's funny.

Toodles..have a great weekend!
