Sorry for not posting!

Our Internet at home died and the provider is ticking me off so we cancelled it and are looking for a new provider. I'm going to the ATT store today and goin to see what they have. Snowmageddon hit Louisville again last night so no work for me today. I have a phone interview later then am going to brave the storm to get Internet. :). Work is depressing as of now it looks like my last day will be Feb 28 but it could be as early as this Friday if I get a job offer between now and then.

I'll try to catch up with everyone as soon as I get the internet back at home. I have a little bit of homework to do today and class tonight but it shouldn't take to long. :)

Happy Birthday Daddy

My father died on September 11, 2008.  He was 66 years old.  I'm typing this on Feb. 4th because for some reason I can't think about anything else today.  There are so many other things that are going on and I should be focusing on but maybe that is why I keep thinking about him.  My father was an amazing man.  He taught me how to do so many things and would know exactly what to say right now...of ourse it would probably be something along the lines of "suck it up put your big girl panties on and keep going."  Which is strangely similar to what my husband says, but my fathers delivery was a lot better than hubsys is, he had 23 years of practice. 
So anywho, I am scheduling this post to hit on Dad's actual birthday.  It seems strange to post it now when his birthday is still three days away.
This is probably the last picture I took of my father.  It was taken at a Wendy's on our way to visit my Grandparents for Thanksgiving, 2007.  I'm pretty sure he was lecturing me for playing with my phone at the table.  I have a hard time looking at this picture sometimes because on the Saturday after Thanksgiving when we got home my dad had a horrible "episode" in my living room.  The next day he was airlifted to University of Kentucky Hospital in Diabetic Shock and put into a medicine induced coma for over 2 weeks.  He came home on December 24th and we had Christmas with my nice and nephew.  I tend to block out the fact that my brother was there on Christmas Eve as well.  (thats a whole different story)

These pictures are from my college graduation.  May 2007.  This was probably the best day my dad had had in a very long time.  Luckily for us after his month in the hospital in Decmeber the doctors played with his medicine and bought us about 7 good months with him.  He was a lot better for a short period of time but at least that was how he went out instead of uncomfortable and in pain. 

Happy Birthday Daddy, it's been a crazy year.  It's amazing how many things you've missed since your last birthday. 
You bought me a Volkswagen Bug in March 2009 (well mom paid for half of it with some of your life insurance proceeds, apparently I picked a cheap coffin!)


And I got married on August 15, 2009 to my Hubsy.  You liked him, you even remembered his name.  I know he hadn't been around very long yet at your funeral but he really was amazing during those horrible weeks after you died.  I think he really impressed everyone. 
Oh and I forgot to mention your best friend performed our ceremony! See there he is!

Oh and Adam is Joining the Navy

He's going to be a Nuclear Engineer on a really big boat! (He's smart like that!) (I tell him he's just a glorified coal shoveler and that the coal shovelers were locked in the coal room on the Titanic...just sayin...

I miss you daddy and wish that you were here to tell me what to do.  I'm scared like a little girl and really just want to crawl up in your lap and cry but your lap isn't here for me to curl up in.

Abbreviated weight loss update

I'm in the sauna at the gym right now and feel amazing. I wish I could just spend the night in a sauna I would sleep spool well. I think it has more to do with the being able to breath than the heat though.
January review:
I lost 5 pounds technically but last week while I was being a lazy bum with a banged up knee I gained back 2 of them (I might have eaten a bunch of crap last week too) for a net loss of 3 pounds. I also lost 1/2 an inch around my waist so go me. To meet my final goal by my birthday I need to lose 5-6 pounds pee month from now until the end of July. Totally doable if it stick with it so I'm excited.
Hubbys weight loss endavors are going a bit better than mine. He went to the recruiter on Friday and has made the 25% body fat needed to enter DEP the problem is that the navy reevaluate their requirements given their current need and have lowered (raised?) DEP standards to the same 22% needed for boot camp so we are planning on hitting 22% by feburary 26 because we both had already planned to take the day off of work to go to Indianapolis for a movie premier about the Pacers tha ESPN is putting on. It sounds like a lot of fun so I'm. Excited and if we can celebrate getting paperwork signed that day as well all the better!

Well I'm takin back tha sauna sleep thing I'm sweating something horrid so I'm going to post this and hit the showers!

Sad face

I had this long post typed up on my phone about my computer at work being frozen and how the weight loss frenzy in the nuclear household was going but my phone rang and the app I am using apparently doesn't let you save drafts. :(. I'm going to the gym tonight with hubby so I promise the retype the entry and update you all either from the treadmill or worse case scenerio from the comfort of my couch when we get home. I know you all (all12 of my followers) can hardly wait!
