SO I am totally loving my new camera!! This is like the best thing since sliced bread! Thank you again babe!!

I feel better these past 2 days, I finally feel like myself again. I can sleep on my tummy quite comfortably and get up from bed with no issues...that helpless tortoise on its shell thing is totally gone LOL

However I must make mention of today, hubs and I went to Stop n Shop and he bought those little mozzarella balls from the prepared foods section. Well I used to be able to eat a quart container of them with no problems. Today I snuck one in and after thoroughly chewing every single bite I was actually satiated. This really is a mind over matter thing for me now. I have to really retrain my head on what I can eat vs. how much I think I can eat.

I started drinking some coffee again so the world is now a much happier place..

Here are some awesome shots i took today..

Christmas came early for this lil girl =)

My hubby brought me a dslr camera! Woohoo! This thing takes amazing pictures..just look at my Fenway! More pics too come!

Sleeping on my tummy again has relieved the tingly/numbness from my legs. What a relief! I feel better, and can’t wait to continue down this lovely road to recovery!

Week 1 Post Op

I lost 10lbs hooray! They were a painful 10 but hey I don’t care 10 is a 10 lol Everything looks good, doc said I appear to be doing remarkably well. However my only concern is the weird numbness/tingly leg thing. It can be due to vitamin B-12 deficiency or something else. They gave me the go ahead to sleep on my stomach I’m sooo looking forward to that you have no idea! Hopefully with the new sleeping position and vitamins this leg thing will go away.

Is it only tuesday?

I slept through the night hallelujah! Its been awhile since I can sleep through which means that maybe I didn’t get enough H2O yesterday.hmm I bumped it up today.
I made I think the best protein smoothie ever!! I was done with the prepackaged shakes, ala Atkins, Slimfast etc The mere smell was getting me nauseated. So I did my own and it was wonderful lower in calories than Atkins and taste hella better!
I also attempted to get in 40mins of “power walking” DVD and felt better.
I feel like time is ticking so slowly, I know I need to recover before heading back to work but being home all day gets daunting when I can’t clean or do errands..=0( At least I get a lot of snuggle time with Fenway.
Tonight is the Biggest Loser finale! I’m excited I hope Heba or Ed win even though I know my hubby harbors some weird animosity towards

A New Chapter..

Well after years of setbacks and frustrations luck was on my side Tuesday at 2PM when I received a call that will change my life..

Wednesday December 10, 2008 I had lapband surgery. After years of wanting it, I at last have my tool that will help me finally shed this excess weight I’ve been harboring all my life. Can we say new birthday? LOL

Surgery itself went well I presume since I was in anesthesia la-la land, I did awake pretty fast and saw my hubby! Pain from the surgery itself is minimal, but the weird gas/left shoulder pain was horrible and I wish it upon no one! Today is day 4 and I feel better than yesterday and I hope that this is a trend for the rest of my recovery. I eat so little that it’s now my brain grappling with the notion that my stomach can not consume more than 5oz at a time. OR that a mere ½ a Sugarfree fugiscle can fill me up. Slowly but surely I hope my brain will catch up lol

Today we went for a walk around a park nearby, it was chilly but doable..Fenway frolicked in the playground and even went down a slide LOL

SO here is my 1st post on my way towards the new me..

The taming of the Shrew ...

One of my best friends is getting married next of course most brides to be she is a bit nervous and anxious..

Brought me back to my day..I was SOOOO nervous..I kept telling myself to be strong no crying u didn’t just spend $$$ on makeup for it to be ruined lol Sure my mom made me have episodes but I quickly fought them back. However, when I saw my husband in the hotel lobby in his suit looking amazing and calm (the bastard) I lost it..he had the audacity to ask “why was I crying?” Gee im about to spend the rest of my life with you I better be crying! I didn’t know my husband all that well when I said “yes”..we were together for 4 months when he asked with ring and all..didnt see that coming! We didn’t live together till 1 month before the wedding however on our honeymoon we did celebrate our 2 year anniversary so it all pans out lol Ok I went off on a tangent, ok where was I? oh yeah.. Didn’t know my husband all that well when I said “yes” I got to know him I further fell in love if that’s even possible..and now that we are almost together for 3 ½ years I am even more in love since day one..I didn’t think it was possible so love does will I feel when we hit the 5year ..10+ year marks? I cant even fathom .. I can’t wait to start a family, we have part of the equation a dog. A puppy that is the 2nd best thing to happen so far..well he isn’t quite a puppy anymore but he’s still my lil ball of mush..

Thanks babe for coming into my life and taming “me”

The juices are flowing....

I did page 1 of my moms book, I decided to kinda do chronological order so its her baby photos. I was ready to start this morning had my layout sketch prepared and realized I didn't have much paper to choose from. I have most blacks & pinks and weddingy type..I wanted variations... i wanted new paper..the scrapbook section is starting to be like a drug I looked for a coupon online so i can at least somewhat afford my addiction and there its was 25% off starting i made a mad dash to an AC Moore... I needed paper. I can take hours deciding on something my hubby can attest to that. I only took like 25mins in the paper aisle I’m quite proud. I found an awesome set of 180 pages for 19.99. Each page is gorge..(OMG Kath & Kim references are sticking!!!) So I made her 1st I said I’m very new at this so if it looks amateurish… dam it is… so =P

Now off to watch last nights SNL w/ the hubs.

Halloween Things

Such a productive day..well creatively that is..We got a pumpkin a huge guy and I carved the face of Jigsaw puppet.. oh yeah we are bad @$$ like that..

Some pics

And I started my moms scrapbook since I was already in a halloweeny spirit I dovetailed the Halloween page I wanted to add of us and my mom at our Halloween best... the awesome Michael Meyers was my lil brother yeah at 16 he wasn’t very little but oh well..

I think it came out rather nice..not bad for a novice scrapbooker..

Its 1am I just had to share my pics and productive day now off to walk fen and see if Jiggy is still holding out in this chilly weather

I feel so blah today..was sick most of the night and now im feeling a lil blahish again.. is blahish a word? Ehhh who cares it will be for now.. =)

Im working on a scrapbook for my mom I hope to complete it by her birthday. I dug up all old pictures I can find of her and us and checked my emails from 2004 and found some long forgotten great shots that I will use. After looking in my hat box of horror (the box with every memento given to me since I was like 12 is in there) My hubby says I need to throw stuff away and I say pish posh im not! Every item brought me back to that time it and was fun to reminisce if only in my head cause im sure the hubs cares less about a petal given to me by an ex oh but he will when he reads this..dam there goes that petal LOL

However I also inherited a lot of silly mementos from my mom way back when and guess what I came across?? My mom’s letter from the doctor when her pregnancy test came back positive with lil ole me December 11 1979 That will make an awesome addition to the book. Im looking forward to starting this project this weekend and hope to be done in 3 weeks…

Im starting a afraid...

New Blog space so an empty canvas in some west village over priced apartment… I will fill it with, in chronological order I may add.. the idiosyncratic yet juxtaposed with the seemingly monotonous life I lead. Oh yeah people prepare for a whole lot of nothing to you but the best fodder for humor for me 4 ++ years from now!
I re-read my livejournal evey now and again and say OMG WHAT was wrong with you!! Then I think, nothing was wrong.. you were 19 totally ok..

Let me introduce myself, I am me. I am 28, married to the best husband ever albeit he has issues on baseball team of preference… like the Red SUX all star CHOKESTERS =)

I have amazing friends whom without I’d be sitting at my desk banging my head against the keyboard till I forget where I was and hope when I eventually come to its 5PM
For example I shall start with quotes of the day so far I have from J1 at 12:53pm what can be heard is “You showed him how to shake his rump in the trunk with flava!!!! LOL

And out of nowhere M-“ OMG I’m being winked from CA and FL now

This is why I truly heart my friends..

And as you see I started with a canvas and now I end with random quotes..

Welcome to my corner of the world… enjoy your stay…
