I was tagged about a MONTH ago to do this cute lil thing, but I have decided that I have the time now. ( I couldn't figure out how to cut and paste without losing my cool, I guess it was because it was so long.) Thanks Jenn, it was fun, and please forgive me for it being soooo late =)

I was supposed to tag people to do this, but NOT really sure how that works.. ha ha! I will learn yes I will.. but I thought this was really cool and fun to participate in! Again, THanks jenn!!

Have a Great Week!!

Diet and Exercise

The dr. told me that I could start back with my exercising..
Sssllllooowwwwlllyyy... so that my body can still be healing. SO, today I am jumping back on the train and getting my body going like I was doing. I'm starting off with a slow walk and increase the intensity, or whatever I feel I can do each day. I have not gained any weight, to my amazement, but that's a good thing, right! I'm thinking that the pounds will fall off the 1st 2 weeks, like it always does, and then be back to normal, which means I'll have to work my BUTT off! ;) Which is FINE with me!
Thanks to each of you for being supportive during this time that I've had so much going on!

Have a GREAT week!

My world is coming TOGETHER!!

I am so excited! I just had to share the news with the bloggy world. Those of you that "know" me, know that my ex-husband and I have joint custody of our kiddos. Well.. he called me to tell me that... SINCE he is (finally) TRYING to find a JOB, that I can put my kids in the school district that I live in, this is very exciting news to me, being that I drive twice a day that weeks I have them OUT of my WAY to take the kids to school. They had to get up at 5, to get them to a friends house at 6:30, so I could be at work at 7. Then a repeat that afternoon.
I have been praying that I would eventually get full custody, which is Not what I have accomplished yet, but looks very close. I've made lots of changes in my life, and I feel God is looking after me, I can strongly feel that, and can tell on a day to day basis. My surgery was successful, and everything is just "falling" into place. and I have a SMILE on my face, like noone would believe! Now, If i can get my behind back on the treadmill, (dr checkup on wed. I gotta make sure I'm ok, before I get back on it, don't need to mess up anything) and we can get "lucky" with a baby! I'll be SMILING indeed!!

Have a GREAT week!!

surgery has been completed!

First of all, thanks to all of you for praying for me and my blood pressure to behave. Because it did! The surgery went off without a HITCh!! The RE dr. said that the dr. that did my tubal cut one side a lil shorter than he should have, so he's not sure if that side will close back up or not. So with that said, he is saying we only have a 50/50 chance of the reversal working.. BUt i told him, You know what, i had a 0% before, so... its gonna work for me!! He told me to keep that attitude, and I am! I feel really positive about this working for us! We have to wait about 2 months before we can try.. dang it!! ha ha! But, hubby and I both feel very positive about this, so that is a good thing! The Lord has moved many obstacles for this surgery to be completed, so I feel that it will work for us.

They weighed me that morning, and I'm pleased to say I have lost 70 pounds.. YAHOOOO!!! I was so excited!

I just thought I'd let you all know I am doing well... Yes i am at home, they don't keep you like they used to! very sore, but slowly walking that out!

Again, thanks for all your prayers.. Now lets just pray that it is successful!!!
