So I’m not going to make any resolutions for this year. I am hoping to lose about 10 more pounds (all from the backside of me) and I’m joining the gym. I’ve decided that I really need to get some exercise and it’s the best and easiest way for me to do that. Plus, Michael’s had amazing results just doing the stair mill. However, if I publicly form a list and advise everyone I know – I’m bound to fail. That’s just how I am.
I’m also going to start taking my vitamins again. I stopped and I’m really feeling the change. A change you don’t want to hear about. Trust me on this.
In a few short weeks, the whole family will be going to Long Beach to board a cruise ship for a fun filled 7 day cruise to the Fantastic Mexican Riviera!! YIPPEE!! I cannot tell you how excited I am! Did I mention the cruise ship has a camp for kids and that the kids don’t need to be potty trained? And that we can leave them there all day if we choose? They also have babysitting – for evening activities. I doubt we’ll be using those services because they don’t start until 10:00 PM!!!
We have made reservations at a hotel on Manhattan Beach so that we can really enjoy our time off. It will give the boys an opportunity to play in the sand and ocean and it will start the relaxation process for Michael and I. We had originally planned on leaving the Saturday before the cruise, but I have been invited to play in an online tournament that day – so we need to drive the night before. Or really early in the morning (and none of us were too excited about that option).
It’s funny, now that the boys are getting older – we can actually take their opinions into account. They have very decisive opinions about everything from socks to dinner. Brody is in the habit of telling (errr whining) about clothes now. I can no longer go shopping for him without him. I’ll bring home clothes, he’ll decide he doesn’t like something and I’ll have to bring it back. I tend to buy them clothes that cost a little more than usual, because they have to last through two very active children. The thought of someone else entertaining my children WHILE on vacation is so enticing!
Of course, we’ll most likely spend all of our time together – but the thought of the camp is awesome! Also, the thought of me spending most of my time reading/knitting/sleeping in a lounge chair by the pool is making me useless in every other aspect of my life! 14 days until we leave!
