i do have to say how much i am grateful for WIC. i kept our receipts this months and they totalled around $120 for only milk, eggs, cheese, peanut butter and juice. i personally don't know what we would do without it. it just feels like every time i turn around the prices of EVERY THING are going up. between gas, food and bills we aren't left with much to save or spend on the girls. it can just be so overwhelming! i know that we will find a way to make it work. johnny FINALLY starts getting paid for E-5 soon and it couldn't have come at a better time. it is truly needed and will be truly appreciated!
i am so glad that the weekend is here again. i got jipped last weekend and didn't even get to enjoy it. this whole week has been chaos and believe me...I AM READY TO RELAX! the weather is absolutely perfect and breezy and i can't wait to get out and walk. johnny and i have talked and he is going to watch the girls a little every night so i can get out of the house and walk. i really just need a time to clear my head, and its also about time for me to try to lose this baby weight. the girls are 15 months old and i am sick of the way i look with this 30lbs of baby weight i have resting on my waist. i always knew it wouldn't be my top priority because i wanted enjoy the babies and remember every moment and memory with them. well, they are getting older and its about time i get active and do something about my appearance. i am actually pretty excited about it. we have this great little lake behind out house with a walking trail. i think i am going to head over there every night and do some laps.
i am really missing my family this week. my nieces are in school and open house is this Thursday. :( i am so proud of Breanna and it would have meant a lot to be there. something is always going on at my parents house and i miss it. i miss my big, drama-filled, crazy, FABULOUS family. i miss my sisters and wish i could be there with them. everyone is changing so much and i am so proud of them. marina is 16, has a job, is in flag corp and CAN DRIVE. what is the world coming to! she is still supposed to be 7 years old and wearing pig tails in her hair! cassy is off doing her own thing and having a blast. susan is....well, SUSAN! hehe. jason has his own little family to take care of and love. i just wish i could be there! :(
here are a few more pictures of the girls. they are so fun and outgoing. every single picture i take of them captures something wonderful about them. their eyes are so big and beautiful. enjoy!
NO MORE PICTURES MOMMY!
