The Big Day

Tomorrow starts the biggest day of the year for me. I am doing it. I know I have been toying with the little cleanses, but I am in. I am going for the gold. I want to do the Crazy Sexy Cleanse twenty one days without anything processed.
I am ENraged by our food industry. I am appauled by what is happening to my body and not okay with what is happening to me. I refuse to let this take over. So I am going to drop what I am doing and spend some time with the old juicer and see what I can get done.

I know I have tried this before but JUICE here I come and I am serious. NO achohol, NO bad food, and a lot of juice.

Lets see how this goes tomorrow is going to start it off.

Juice, Kids, Spring break.

My new juice taste just like green lemonade which makes drinking it ten times better. I have honestly been craving it and then being to lazy to make it. (Should work on that) It has truly become part of our lives. It know it seems like I have got crazy but, I haven't it really is that GREAT. How can I convert you too?

The kids are out of spring break and driving me CRAZY... I have to tell you that they are absolutely on one. The not so funny jokes, weird noises, and constant question are driving me up a wall. I NEED MORE WINE to make it through the rest of the week. SERIOUSLY MORE WINE>

Things have been crazy here. The remodel is slowly moving forward and we will see what happens as the weeks come to a close.

I made it to the gym two out of three days this week but, the scale seems to be going in the wrong direction. Every time I step on her she tells me I am gaining weight. Anyone else experience this?

Are you watching Dead wood.

   Have you started and stopped or are you fully hooked?  I tend to go back and forth; days when I am not ready to turn it off. I can't get enough of the rough, gross, crude, bloody stuff. Then the very next day I am hiding in the kitchen refilling Sean night drink to avoid the t.v.
    There is the hot guy with the bow and arrow too... Maybe this is still coming from when he was the HOT brother Irishman. I had dream about him for years. Now I get to watch him daily or weekly.

So tonight I leave you with hot guy.

Making motion

This made me giggle. Just a tad.

Corbynn is back in spring suffrage. Welcome to Asthma season; worst time of year around the Jones.
Today she is feeling a lot better to day; yesterday was one of those days that I was grateful for her 02 saturation monitor. That thing is a saving grace in more than one way. Last year I would have packed her up and taking her to the hospital. They would have put her on a nebulizer and we would have come home. All the while incurring a HUGE bill. Now that we have the monitor I knew where she was and could deal accordingly.
These days with the sicky make me so grateful that I am the one with a major illness and not them. It would be impossible to watch her go through this every day.

Clean eating has been going fairly well. Here is my recipe of the week it taste like green lemonade
3 green apples
2 kale leafs
1 whole lemon
3 handfuls spinach
1 inch ginger
7 celery sticks
2 cucumbers

  Did I mention that I am doing couch to 5k? I am sure I did, but I feel the need to brag  a little. I have been making it to the gym with more regualarity that ever before. In the last 12 days I have gone 7. I honestly have never had a lot of motivation, but with the help of this app. I feel great knowing what I am going to do and feel even better after I do it. I have incorporated some weight training but not a lot and would like to have more. Maybe a need a mentor??

The Truth about hair extensions

     You may have noticed I got myself some new hair this week. It was an investment I am not going to lie. A lot of  dollars later I have a full head of hair and not very many regrets. Nothing like hair to make you feel like a real woman. This shouldn't be the case but boy it is; I have woke up every day this week super happy to do my makeup dress up and go to the gym. Hair is SEXY we all know it even if we want to think that is vain.. truth is it just is.

     The truth is they aren't very comfortable for the most part they are a little painful. People say that the itching and neck pain goes a way in a few days but, I haven't experienced that yet. The are just a little uncomfortable.  Do I think about taking them out? Of course I do. Am I going to? Not a chance in this world. I am keeping them in for at least three months. Hopefully my hair is a little bit longer by then and I will have a few more options for my own head of hair.

    Putting them up is the easiest way to style them but, it is also horrible for the extension. So wearing them down is the way to go. I am trying to only pull them back when I am at the gym. The rest of the time curling them seems to be the way I am rocking them.

Like I said it is great having some extra length. Do I magically feel more sexy? YES I do!

Happy St. Patty's Day

    This is one of my favorite holidays of all time. Growing up as a Obray it was just part of the family tradition. You would wake up to corned beef hash and mid day have corned beef and cabbage. It was one of the few family traditions. When I was young we didn't have a lot of traditions the ones we did have were kinda without any direction.
    When I started my own family I didn't understand what we were missing until I became remarried. Now I am looking forward and realizing that I want my family to have many traditions. I want my family to have the memories I have lack of my childhood. The blogging world has shown me what traditions can bring to a home.
     I am missing doing my family traditions today but, non of our children are home so we will start making these traditions soon. Do you have any traditions that you love?

       Here is a photo dump of this week.

Time Passing.

It seems amazing that I can sit in front of my computer for weeks on end with nothing to say to the world.
I have no real excuses to my lack of ambition. Other than that lack of ambition.

The real estate market is going very well right now. Things seem to be moving forward without many problems other than lack of inventory. It seems the buyers are rushing through the doors again and yet there are no properties to sell them.  This week has brought in four offers and a lot of nothing

We took all the kids up skiing to weeks ago and oh what a blast it was. The kids did amazing I am amazed at how well everyone is skiing these days. I am almost saddened by how fast these little babies grow. I find that I look back on six or eight years ago and it was just yesterday. Yet here I am with a girl that knows what she want and normally how a pretty great idea of how to get there.  They have ideas and plans and futures ahead of them.

 I see little babies every where and start thinking that maybe I want one. Then I remember how rough it was when they were little and can't imagine adding babies into our busy lives. I wake and I feel like the to-do list is never ending. How would I fit little people back into that mold? I don't think that I will. I will continue to gaze at them lovingly and hope to babysit more often.
