It Has Been A Long Time Blogger Friends...

I just want to say that I haven't been on here in a while very long time, seriously. I miss blogging so much, but I have been ridiculously busy with work. I work 40 hours a week and when I am not working, I sleep. When I'm not sleeping, I see my family; that is about it. I barely even see friends anymore because I am always exhausted. I hate it and I am currently looking for work else where. On a better note, the husband has signed up for college. He's late,but he has his classes ready to go. We shall see how this goes with him at school and me at work. Just a couple years ago, the roles were switched (turn on panic mode).

I haven't been on so long that I realize I need that oompf. I need need to know some read this blog. By all means spread my blog around. Maybe that would get me in the mood to write more. I'm so thankful for those out there who still pay attention. 

I'm still couponing, still wanting to blog about my baby big boy, Liam. Did I mention that he is FIFTEEN months old; fifteen...1-5 months old. I am in utter shock. Where did my little baby boy go? I barely remember when he was an infant. He is so crazy now. You thought he was crazy before? Well now, you don't even know! He's hyper, running all over the place and climbing on evvvverything - seriously like the stove drawer and the couches - it's nuts. He had a huge growth spurt too; he's now 22.5 lbs and 30 1/4 inches long. He jabbers on like crazy and the doctor said he wouldn't be surprised if he surpassed the amount of words he should be saying by 18 months. He still only has eight teeth, but it looks like a couple more will come in sooner or later. He's definitely been teething again lately. He has been working on his throwing (we have angry bird plushies he likes to throw, go figure HA) and he has been working on how he eats. We now finally use toddler bowls, plates, forks and spoons. He loves using it and I am glad; it's a big transition from using his hands. He also loves his straw cups! Don't even get me started on his eating habits; he eats more than we do!

Work is...okay...horrible ...going. It is basically there to pay the bills for now. I liked it at first but now it's just annoying. We do the same thing every day and we all get treated horribly. Management is awful. I do love the people I work with though, aside from some drama. I crack up laughing almost every day! This job is really hard on me; I am always sore and in pain. I need a better nights sleep, but I would need to waste my day doing that. Instead, I wake up no later than 10am so that I can play with Liam before work. My shift is always 4pm-1am, which isn't too terrible. I am definitely looking for other work though. At least I am proud to say that I have lost THIRTY-TWO pounds so far...32...3-2!! This is fantastic for me and I hope to keep it up. It is all thanks to my job and our Paleo lifestyle (which we cheat once a week or so and I am still losing weight). 

Now for a photo overload!

From when I lost about 20lbs (now at 32+ lbs lost)...this is embarrassing for me!

Finally - his first haircut!! He looks like a big boy now!
I'm going to try harder to keep up with blogging! I miss it; I miss getting into my own world and typing about anything - even if others didn't care to read it! Stay tuned blogger world!
