Tuesday News Day

It's Tuesday and I've forgotten again.  It's 8:30pm.

So, I'm starting to try AGAIN to lose weight.  I never make it far.  Which makes me angry.  But I'm at about 1300 calories a day, which is 100 more than MyFitnessPal suggested in order to lose 2 lbs each week.  Kiersten still nurses quite a bit at night, so I am not super strict, but I don't like going over.  It's getting us into eating more veggies.  AGAIN. 

I'm also planning a trip to Oregon soon.  And Washington.  Hoping to see both the beach where The Goonies was filmed, and also Forks/La Push where Twilight was filmed.  Just happy and excited about it.  It'll be nice to get out of the house and go do some traveling, see something new.  I love traveling!  I wish I could afford to travel overseas a bit, but I don't think that's in my future for a while.  Unless someone wants to GIFT me some awesome travel vouchers or something!  I'll need to update my passport with my married name, since I got married 7 1/2 years ago, something like a year after I updated it last.  Nonetheless, it'll be so great to get out and about and have a vacation from every day life.  I am so exhausted!  I need a change, even if it's just for a week.  Maybe I'll come home and appreciate the every-day-junk a little more again. 

I've been working on refinishing some dressers.  I got 3 of them plus a hutch and a twin mattress from a friend for an amazing $50!!  That means Mitchell, at age 3, is now in a twin bed and out of his toddler bed.  However, Kiersten, at age 14 months, has been in a twin bed for 2 months already!!  Ooops!  It's nice having dressers in our bedroom.  I also put a bookshelf in there recently.  It looks SO much better!  Just a tiny bit more to clean up in there and it'll be GORGEOUS!  So, all I've got left is one more dresser that will go in the boys' room.  It was so nice outside that I was spray painting on the porch.  Then it snowed something like 2" one night and now I have to fix some of the not-solid-wood boards.  Ugh.  Upsetting after it being so darn nice.

Anyway, that's been our last two weeks-ish.
