Weight Observations

Why is it that no matter how much weight I lose, I still think I look exactly the same? I had my pt test (my run test for you non-mil types) recently and you have to weigh in. I weighed in at 113lb. I haven't weight 113lb since I was a high school anorexic!! Yet, when I look in the mirror, all I see is my poochy tummy, flabby butt, and thunder thighs. Am I totally messed up in the head or is this something that all women go through? It's so frustrating because I will tell myself, if I just lost 5 more lb I would be happy, but then I lose it and I'm still not happy. What is wrong with me!!??

I Wuv My Dishwasher

Can I just say that the biggest luxury I missed while being in Japan was having a dishwasher. I got so used to washing everything by hand for the last few years that it took me a while to get used to using it again, but now that I am...Damn do I love that dishwasher! Caitlyn can even load it and unload it, so I don't have to do anything but drop in the dishwashing liquid and press go. Life is good!

Of course, I really miss my bathtub, so I guess everything balances out in the end.

WC Update

Goooo England! We root for them not because Becks is such a great player, but b/c my hubby thinks Posh is a hottie :) We are the worst soccer fans ever. (and if you don't know who Posh and Becks are, shame on you for not reading People magazine!)

Our House...In the Middle of Our Street

I took so long to post my other blogs that Tim took the pics of the house for me. So, enjoy! :)

Toothless Wonder

Caitlyn's front permanent tooth had been growing in front of her baby tooth, so we took her to the dentist as soon as we arrived in LA. The dentist decided he needed to "wiggle out" her two front teeth (the 2nd one was ready to come in as well). Caitlyn was nervous at first, but after they gave her the laughing gas (that's nitrious oxide to those of you who have never had your wisdom teeth out), she was just fine ;) In fact, she asked me if we could go back again! :) Anywho, here's the cutest pics of the tootheless wonder.

It's Aliiiiive

Yes, it's true, we are still here. Sorry for the lengthy period of absence but it couldn't be helped. We were literally living out of a suitcase for the last three months. (and, yes, it does suck as much as you think it does). But, we are finally living in our new home and are sttling in nicely. We actually have a bit of room to move around, and I have some space in my kitchen, which I have been using religiously since we moved in. I will post pics of the house as soon as I get off my lazy ass and take some :) In the meanwhile, here are some pictures from our trip to Albuquerque to visit the parentals.
