Goals Revisited

In January I set up a list of goals, at which I am failing miserably.

-Have a baby: still "unpregnant"
-Lose 10 lbs: I have lost about 4, but that is no where near close to ten
-Lose 20 lbs: Obviously not
-Lose 30 lbs: I am actually not sure I want to lose this much, I think I will switch it to
                     23 lbs.  I don't want to be sickly skinny.
-Drink 2 glasses of water a day: This is SO easy.  And yet I am not doing it.  Stupid
                                                   soda for being delicious.
-Keep my house cleaner: I still don't have a house so I am giving myself a break on this
                                      one until I move.
-Read the New Testament: 50% complete
-Read the entire Bible: I started the year at like 40% read and now I am at like 47%...

So I am failing.  Luckily I figured I would fail so I am not to worked up about it.

When we move I am going to make myself a pretty strict schedule so I can keep my twice as big as I am used to house clean while still playing with the kids, making meals, crafting and everything else.  I love schedules (as long as they have free time slots, otherwise its way overwhelming to go, go, go all day, every day) and lists, so I honestly already have one planned up.  I will post it once I move and get settled and see how it works out.

Schedules are the only way I get everything done and don't get overwhelmed and give up before I start.

So my schedule already has Bible reading, cleaning, exercising, and water drinking factored in, so I think by the end of the year I should be doing pretty good goal wise.  Except the baby, but then that isn't really in my hands.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
