I'm dealing with allergies and of course asthma. I have had a bad sinus headaches and I think its because Cedar has finally came. Add in all the meds I take and I'm ready to pass out. I'll have to make it to work this week and hopefully rest up this weekend with another 3-day weekend.
As for weigh-in day, I weighed but didn't put a post up because nothing changed. No 207 quite yet... stayed at 208.4. Thats all good though. I did pretty well with my water intake all week long. As for calories, I did go over a few days all week. My protein was VERY far up, especially since I've been drinking a protein shake in the morning. Thats 34 grams alone. So I think getting the protein in has helped with things more. I'm hoping after I get my asthma under control with the Advair, Singulair and Allegra... I can seriously start working out. I've really wanted to but its like as soon as I go outside it flairs up, or I smell cigarette smoke and it flairs immediately. I'm coughing like a maniac and feel like a 65 year old lady that needs freakin' depends... lol.

So on Christmas Eve, we headed out to Killeen and met Booger. And took him home. Add in that I am allergic to some dogs. Just so happens, I'm allergic to him too. He loves me loving on him... and I love on a lot. I can't help it, he's too cute. I end up with little itchies or small hives. But its cool... the kids love him too. He is a major whiner... still trying to understand what he wants/needs with the whines. He's definitely scared of my cats (mainly Romeo, the big 15 pound tomcat of our house). The husband loves him too but apparently wasn't prepared for all the whining from the dog. No biggie to me. Plus he's worried I'm going to steal the dogs affections (possibly, haha). In the meantime, this weekend we will be getting a crate for the dog for when we're all back at work and school. I hope we can train him and he doesn't howl too bad. Since he's a rescue... we also have to fatten him up, he's a bit skinny for this breed. So overall my hubby is happy to finally have a pet and it just means even more that we will need to move into a house once our lease is up at the end of May. Plus I'm ready to get into a house. I need the space, these kids are getting too big and I can't take my downstairs neighbors anymore.
As for Christmas... we went to my parents house for Christmas Eve, with the new family pet in tow. He met my mom's pug and they bonded quickly. Snuk got a new bike from his Grammy and Papa, as well as some giant blocks and other toys to play with while at their house. Naty got an easy bake oven and stated "This is the best day of my life!" Seriously she said that. Lol. Aries got some Axe body spray, bath stuff. And he also got his first BB Gun. I also seen my niece open the gift that mattered to her most.... a cell phone. She had been begging for one all year. She actually cried. Haha. I've never seen her so emotional.
On Christmas morning, the kiddos woke up and opened all their gifts. They mainly got a lot of clothes, much needed. We got Snuk a drumset, a Mater remote control truck and a cowboy gun set. We got Naty a Paper Jamz microphone set, you can add up to 3 songs and sing with it. And we got her a little boombox to play cd's on (she's not ready yet for a mp3 player) and a Hello Kitty bike. And for Aries... he got a cell phone too and an mp4 player. So they did pretty good. Our kids are happy with the little things, but I admit... as they get older, it gets harder and harder to get these things. My oldest son will be 12 years old in 3 more days... his bike broke on him (the chain just fell apart, add in the seat is messed up)... so I'm thinking we will get him a new bike. He actually uses it to get to school. So shhh...
In the end, we had a great holiday... spent it with family, no arguments. Just love. Exactly how I like it. Here's some photos for your viewing pleasure.
