Catchin' up

I'm very happy--last night I finally found the XM station on our Direct TV that plays Christmas Music!! Channel 822 Holly. It really is the little things that make me giddy. Just an FYI this will be the station that our living room TV will be tuned to most of the day until 2009, even though I'm the only one that really enjoys it. I have heard my favorite Christmas song, Wonderful Christmas by Paul McCartney, only three times today but have yet to here my second favorite, Santa Baby, there is always tomorrow:)

Is it to early to put up the tree???

Weigh loss update:
I've joined a biggest loser group at the local gym. We are in week 7 of 12 week program. Yesterday, Sunday, was weigh in day, I'm now at 149, I've lost 11 lbs so far.
My goal is 135, I searched the internet for "my ideal weight" and at 5'7" and almost 36 (My birthday day is in 35 days in case you were wondering and yes that makes Christmas 34 days from now) the pages google came up with says my ideal weight would be 135, so that is what I want to weigh!

Syd update:
She is now 5 months old, she can roll over as of last week but she really does not enjoy this talent yet, she still is very upset when she finds herself face down. She has 2 lower front teeth and is drooling like crazy so we are expecting the top two someday soon. She has been moved to her crib which has been removed from JD's room and place ever so thoughtfully in our room next to my side of the bed. She does not take well to this new change, she insist on rolling over and fussing about it most of the night and I can't sleep, I keep thinking that she is going to smoother herself. I end up bring her in bed with us just so we both can catch a few winks. My dark eye circles gives it away, this new arrangement still needs to have the bugs worked out of it.


CJ update:
She is 18 1/2 months old. She, I believe, has hit the terrible twos. She can throw a mean temper tantrum. She has been giving us a bad time about sleeping in her crib lately, she has slept with us 2 out of the last 5 nights, yes that make our queen bed a little tight. She can now point out her nose to you. We have a Dr. appointment this Wednesday for her and I need to talk with the Doc about her lack of speech, as the third child I do realize that it will be slow going but she really can only say "bye" and "Hi" although she does understand nearly everything you say to her and she follows commands such as "throw this away", "blow your nose", & "put this in the sink.," and she can shake her head no when she is done eating. So I don't think there is anything to worry about just yet. I'm still going to talk with the Doc anyways.

Pole Barn House update:
Hubby informed me that we have reached the 4 year mark as of Nov. 15th. Slow and steady wins the race:) Anyway we now have toilets and running water in the bathroom and kitchen sinks, (Thank you Tommy). I had forgotten what I picked out for faucets (It was like years ago that I picked these out). I was very pleased with my choice all over again when I seen them installed. The counter tops are installed, just need to screw in the back splashes (Thank you George). Most of the lights are up now, I'm not as thrilled with my choices now, nothing bad but I wonder if I can spray paint them, silver or brushed nickel?? All the closet organizers are installed, can't wait to fill them up. My biggest news and happiness is the water back there does not taste gross, so I get to have the fridge of my dreams. (Remember little things do make me giddy! ) It is a french door style with the freezer below and ice and water in the door. I can order it on Wednesday- That is when salesman Pete comes back to work at Home Depot. I can't wait!

I will post pictures of the updates soon, girls are napping right now and I can't get back there.
