Random thought...

If my husband says "I WILL DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!" one more time, I will not be responsible for what I do to him. Thank you, SNL. He hasn't even seen the movie and yet I'm going to be hearing this for the next three weeks. Save me, seriously.

More apologies... are you tired of hearing them?

Yes, it has been awhile. I don't know what my problem is. I really want to get into daily blogging, but I'm struggling to find a balance of what to blog about. The problem is that I think my life is terribly uninteresting and I don't know who in the world would want to read about it.

What have we been up to? Work and sleep, it seems like. Jason's revolving work schedule is hard on him (and me, I'm embarrassed to say). His schedule is a 7 days of swings (4pm until midnight) with 2 days off, 7 days mids (midnight until 8am) with 2 days off, 7 days of days (7:45 am until 4:30pm) with two days off, and then 4 days of days (6:30am until 4:00pm) with 4 days off. We get two weekends together a week, and the week of swings we don't see each other at all because of our opposing work schedules. It is tough, and I wish it didn't have to be this way, but we did know what it would be like before we accepted these orders so I guess we can't complain.

My parents came down the weekend of Memorial Day to help us do some landscaping. When we purchased the house, it had sod, beds with a few bushes around the house, and a tree in the front yard, and that was it. We uprooted almost everything, moved the existing bushes around, and added flowers, plants, a banana tree, a sago palm, more bushes, hanging flower baskets... it looks great! We've gotten lots of compliments. The funny thing is that two neighbors came by and told us that we had shamed them into putting some effort into their landscaping, and we're starting to see them do some planting. Haha! I never imagined myself to be a gardener, but I'm out there everyday, watering and weeding. We even planted a tomato plant and have some cherry tomatoes popping up! I'll take some pics and post them so you all can see.

I really need to get back on the weight loss bandwagon. I haven't really gained any weight since we moved but I feel different (and not in a good way!). We have a gym membership we are paying for but aren't using, and there is nothing stopping me from going but lazy me. I'm hoping to get together some girls from work for accountability partners. I just really need to work on making better food choices, I think.

I'm beginning to have baby pangs. I know - you thought you would never hear me say it, right? If my mom is reading this, she is saying "THANK GOD!" I've been waiting for the time when I thought both of us was ready. I'm still not sure about Jason, but I'm making my way there. When Jon & Kate + 8 makes me sentimental and sappy instead of appalled and scared, I know I am turning a corner. Someone let me babysit, stat! That will take care of those feelings.

Nothing more to add, sadly. This is my life. I told you it wasn't interesting.

My favorite things

Hello dear readers! I wouldn't blame you if you no longer visited my blog, since I am now posting so infrequently. Many apologies!

Today's blog topic is Things That Bring You Comfort and Joy. What makes you happy? What do you love to do? What gives your soul peace and brings your happiness? Jason and I were talking about this tonight and I'd like to share as well as hear your thoughts.

For me, there is nothing more soothing to my soul that sitting on a beach, listening to the waves. I can literally feel my stress and worry easy away. The sand between my toes, the wind on my face, the rhythm of the waves, the sound, the smell... it just all comes together for me.

Since we've moved, I've loved going outside, sitting on my porch, and looking at the stars and our pond. I take my iPod with me, listen to some music, and veg out. It isn't quite the same as the beach, but it my spot where I can go to be alone and think.

Jason and I both love taking naps. It isn't so much the nap as it is the fact that we're together, with the boys, laying down and cuddling as a family. I can't explain how it is different from sleeping together every night, but it just is. Naps are the bomb, ok?

How about for you? What do you do when you need comfort or escape? Where do you go or what do you do? Please share!
