Our yard is taking shape!

Our yard is now taking shape.
The new fence is pretty much up minus the gates. We have most of our front beds in with mow strips, and today we went and bought the shrubs! Yup, we went and bought some bush! lol. I'm super happy with the way everything is turning out. It doesn't even look like the same house any more! Our lot looks huge with the new fence at the front. I can't wait till its done and we can just sit back and enjoy! If only it would stop raining until after we seed then lawn, then it can rain all it wants!
I've been weighing in on my regular days, mostly to see if all this hard work is paying off. I seem to be leveling out at between 190-193, but my pants are again feeling a little smaller. I think I must be putting on muscle and losing inches. To bad my arm wings arn't going away. Grr...will I be a bird forever?
On the baby front I went into see Dr Coe on Tues to get my IUD out. I arrived after waiting a month for the appointment, I sat in the waiting room for an hour, then I was told he didn't have the tool to remove it! WTF! I was livid! I gave the receptionist a piece of my mind! Why wasn't I told that when I made the appointment a month ago! I told the lady on the phone why I was making it! Or even more why didn't you pre screen me when I came to check in at the desk! I sat in your waiting room for an hour! I payed my baby sitter for and hour! OMG I was and am so mad! I think I scared her because not even 2 hours later I got a phone call about the actule removal appointment. So now I have to go to the Sturgeon out patient on my anniversary (July 2nd) to get it removed, because that's where the tool is!?! Sucks. I would still use this form of birth control again, it's super easy and now that I have this info about it's removal I'll know for next time. For the next few months Earl and I are planning on using store bought Birth Control. I think we'll try and get preggers some time this winter. This will insure that Evan can be moved into the bigger room and in his big boy bed (yet to be bought but definitely on the budget books), also this will insure that Evan and the new babies birthdays on opposite times of the year. Good for future birthday party costs and such.
Well really, all that's new with me. I hope everyone is well. I'll try to write more often but I really don't have much to report. Have a good one!

Crazy busy

Well my front yard still looks like a construction zone. We now have a front sidewalk which is good. But there is now a tandem load of black dirt sitting on my front lawn. Since it's raining that dirt will not be moving anywhere but turning into mud instead. This sucks! I just want to get it done! I want the front of my house to look nice when people walk by!
Life is soooo funny. Last year we had no money but all the time in the world to get things done. Evan wasn't walking yet so we could have but him in his saucer and went to work. This year however he is of course a goer! We can't work on the front because one of us has to watch him, his napping schedule is so sporadic we never know if he's going to actually nap or not, and I'm working every second weekend and 3 nights a week so that takes Earl out of the game until I'm off again the next weekend! Then we're back to Evan again.
Most of the jobs out front especially putting in the lawn edging kind of needs 2 ppl. Once that's done I can lay the brick for the mow strips durning the week, here's hoping mother nature gives us a couple of rainless hours this weekend.
Well my IUD comes out on June 24th. Which means the need for birth control or getting preggers again is in the front of my mind. I'm not sure yet another baby in 9 months is a good thing. I can't imagine all the things we would need to do to prepair, and the short amount of time we would have to do it in. That is of course if I get preggers right away, which lets face it is a strong possibility. The Wood girls are blessed when it comes to getting with child.
I'm hoping things are calming down now, so I'll get a chance to blog more often.
Oh on the weight loss front, I've gained back about 3 pounds. My weight has been fluctuating between 188-193. So with in 5 pounds. I've simply not been watching what I'm eating, and frankly at this point I don't really care. I'm happy, busy but happy, maybe after baby #2 I'll concentrate on getting to my goal weight. But for now I'm okay with me and my girth.
Have a good one ladies.
