Three is Perfect for ME!!!

Really it is!!!

You would think that after 14 years of raising two sons by myself people would stop asking me things like;

"Are you EVER going to get remarried?"
"Don't you want more kids?"
"Don't you get lonely?"
"Don't you want to "you know" again?'
" You’re pretty cute, nice, fun insert other complementary words here, why are you still single?"

I think this last one may be implying that there must be something WRONG with me but I will assume people just think I am so awesome that they are amazed I haven't been snatched up.

I could go on forever with the enormous list of questions people ask me, all relating to my choice to be single. Don't get me wrong, I am finally open to the idea of dating someone great IF that is what God has in store for me but he would have to be pretty freaking amazing!!!! Why? Because I LOVE my little family of three.  God blessed me with two amazing boys. He snuck my little Christopher in there right before his daddy bailed, for a reason. I don't know what Greg and I would do without him!! Yes, my boys are like night and day, which means they complement each other and me very well. I can't imagine life without them.  I do not feel like there is anything missing!!! 
Finally this year after sending out This photo of me and my boys people get it. How do I know you ask?The phone calls/texts with the, "WOW, you guys look really HAPPY".
We do don't we!
We are greatful for what we have and we love to just lay around and spend time with one another as much as we can. I can't think of anything in this world that could make me happier than my boys.

P.S. I think at a later date I may share why I chose to raise my kidos solo because I get that question ALOT, we'll see.  I am also considering dating in the coming years but not because I have a strong desire to, maybe I'll write about that too.


  1. I'm sure you guys "look" happy because you ARE! :) You are an amazing and strong woman and I don't doubt that you do everything with purpose. You also have a wonderful and supportive family. Happy New Year!

  2. Agreed with Brina. And you don't need a picture to prove it. You are an amazing mom and should give yourself props for doing it solo - b/c even with a partner, being a parent is hard work! You're raising two wonderful boys. Keep on, keepin' on! xoxo AMC

Weight Loss Challenge: Week SEVEN update (LATE POST)

I did weigh in on Friday and guess what? I stayed the same for the second week in a row. This week I think I will really need to push myself to see a loss. I have about 24 more pounds to go to meet my goal which means I need to lose about 3 pounds a week from here on out. I have decided to step things up a bit in order to push through my plateau. Here is what I am going to do 1.LOG EVERYTHING EVERY DAY. I have been a little lax on this. I will be sure to track every little bite so I can more accurately assess how I am doing and what I need to change next week.
2.STEP IT UP A NOTCH. I have been active but I have been doing pretty leisurely walks. I will jog at least 2 times this week and add one more intense activity. I am thinking dancing or Zumba.

3.ADD MORE DAILY ACTIVITY. What I mean by this is that in addition to actually working out I will take every opportunity to be more active in my daily life. I can walk to the store that is less than a mile from my house when I need to get a gal…

Merry Christmas: Journey to milfhoods weight loss Challenge Finale

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a great time with family and friends.

Today was the big day all the girls in this challenge were working towards. It has been great having people to do this with. It was the motivation i needed.

My ultimate goal is to lose 33 lbs! I will be at me goal weight if i lose this much. Did i lose 33 lbs????????????????? Nope! But you knew that right.

I did lose 10 pounds for Christmas. I am pretty happy about that! I am going to keep going. Right now  I am just trying to maintain through New Years. Then set a new short term goal. 10 pounds at a time seems to Work well for me!!

Here is a before was actually a week or two into my challenge.

After to follow. I took one but it is at work...i got busy on Christmas eve and forgot to email it to myself. Oops.

Enjoy your loved ones a little more today.

It's a "Do the best you can with what you got!" kind of Christmas!!

I have been a very bad girl this year and have not posted in weeks!!! I will post Christmas day for my big "Journey to Milfhood's weight-loss challenge" reveal with a before and after photo. You can find out on Tuesday if I meet my goal or not.

Life continues to be cRaZy but good. I am blessed to be in one piece, to have my gorgeous sons and to have a job that is sometimes hectic but always fun and rewarding.

Chris asked for a BIG ticket item this year....a LAPTOP. At first he wanted an ipad but then he decided a good laptop, with windows 8 of course, would be better so he could use it for homework as well as gaming. This would put a pretty big dent in my Christmas budget!!I do not charge things for Christmas. I figure if I cannot pay cash for it, I cannot afford it. I started this at about 25 because I did not want to be $40,000 in debt like many in the baby boomer generation. It works well for me because it also helps me prioritize and budget well for the holidays.
