home sweet home

We are staying in our house!! It's been a hellish few months with everything up in the air. I really tried to ignore it through the holidays, but wasn't very successful. I'm so glad that it's over. I can't believe that they waited until exactly 24 hours from our court date to make a deal. Thy didn't give us exactly what we asked for, but it should be enough. They lowered our monthly payment by over $200 and added everything onto the end of the loan. So, now I have to Fed-Ex them our first payment by Jan 22nd, then we don't have another payment due until April. I think I can do that. We'll have Joel's next 2 paychecks to get the money together and sent out. Then I have 2 months to get everything caught up and start figuring out our new budget.

In other news, I'm fat. Stress has not been good to me. I'm way heavier than I've ever been and my skin is a mess. I signed up for WW online Monday. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting it down. I suck at figuring out points. I had some fish the other night that I bought at the store thinking they were healthy, but they were 8 points. That seems like a lot to me. I'm also not a huge fan of veggies, but I'm trying to eat them anyway. I need to find some easy, low point snacks and meals. I guess I need to take the time to surf the WW site.

Joey's been constipated for days. I tried changing his diet a bit, cut out the dairy mostly, lots of juice and water. Started Pedia-lax yesterday, still nothing. I'm not sure what to do.

Ethan is doing great in school, as usual. His teachers love him, but he's not a suck-up, so he still has a ton of friends. I wish he wasn't so snotty at home sometimes, but he's 11. He's helpful 75% of the time, so I let most of it slide.

Other than that, I celebrated my 1 year smoke-free anniversary on Tuesday, as you know, and am now counting down to my birthday. It's 4 weeks from today, in case you were wondering. I think we're going to dinner at Emeril's and gambling at the Sand's.

I hope the new year is going well for you!
