Friday Blog Hopping and Random Thoughts

Good Friday!  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far and hope the weather is good where you are at.  We have got a ton of snow this past month and are expecting about 3 to 4 more inches tonight into tomorrow morning.  I had to laugh yesterday when the weather men and women were talking about how we were only supposed to get an inch yesterday.  Needless to say, they totally missed the mark and we ended up getting about 3 to 4 inches.  Sometimes I wonder if I could predict the weather better!
Last week, my hubby took me out and bought me a new laptop, which is something that I have been wanting for a long time.  I have been playing around with it and learning how to use it as well as training myself how to type on a little bit smaller of a keyboard.  I am looking forward to writing some new reviews, doing giveaways and blogging more now.  This week also brought a great change at work!  I used to work 4 days a week and never seemed to have time to do things around the house, spend time with my girls and especially do much blogging.  Wednesday, I received news that I would be working just two days a week (Mondays and Tuesdays) and have the rest of the week off as well as I also received a $2 raise.  The job I do is very important and I was set to leave my job at the end of June when my aunt was retiring.  It seems that I do such a good job that they wanted to keep me on, so for me this is truly a blessing.  I am looking forward to potty training little one, keeping my house spotless, becoming more active with the oldest one at school, and more active in the church as well as much more blogging!  I have been busy contacting new companies for new review and giveaway opportunities as well.  So stay tuned for many new changes here at Mommy2TwoGirls!  It is going to be an exciting new year after all! :)

Five Question Friday

1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?

I met hubby at work, when I worked at a gas station/convenience store.  He needed a second job to pay for costs he had from a car accident.  We started out as friends (I actually had a thing for a friend of his) and spent a lot of time talking.  It wasn't instantly love by any means until our friendship got deeper and the we started dating.  It was love the first time he cooked dinner for me though!

2. What is your favorite room in your house?

Our living room because it has all of the fun things to do like a big TV, Wii, computer, etc and it is so comfortable with the fireplace.

3. Can you wiggle your ears?

No, I can't at all!

4. What is your evening ritual?

A workout whether at the gym or through the Wii, followed by making dinner, eating dinner, cleaning up, showering the kids,a little computer time, TV time and eventualy bedtime.

5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?

I can function on 6 hours but I make up for lack of sleep on weekends!

Saturday Spectacular-Link Up Your Giveaways-1/15-1/22

Sorry, Updates and Friday Blog Hops

Good Friday morning to all of you.  First of all I want to apologize for the lack of updates and such on this blog.  It has been a crazy last part of the year and a crazy start to the new year as well.  We continue to have problems with our 8 year old daughter and the ADHD.  She is now on medication and after over a month and have to increase the dosage, it still isn't having the effects that we would like it to have.  The battle continues for sure and it hasn't been an easy thing to live with.  She is constantly fighting with us over simple things like doing homework, taking showers, and picking up her room.  We are always hearing things like "I hate you" and "I hate my life" among other things that don't need to be repeated.  The youngest is getting ready to start potty training and is also going through watching her sister's behavior, so she is picking up on certain actions and words.  My job is in limbo right now as well.  I am not sure if I want to continue working or quit to come back home and be mommy again.  I have been debating this for several weeks as my aunt (whom I work with) is retiring in June and it will be hard in my current position to work without her, there will be more responsibility at my job that I am not sure I want to take on.  My babysitting situation has been all over the map and I am having a hard time finding someone that I am comfortable with and doesn't demand a lot of money.  I also recently joined a gym for the first time ever and am eager to start my weight loss journey, which I would love to feature here on my blog.  I have been overweight pretty much all of my life, have been on so many different diets where I have started and then after a few days or a week, I just give up.  I want to get fit and healthy not only for myself, but for my girls so I will be around a long time for them.  Sorry to vent, but I wanted all of my loyal followers of this blog to know what has been going on in my life and the reasons behind why there hasn't been much going on here at Mommy2TwoGirls recently.  I first started this blog as an outlet to talk about my girls and life in general with a little fun mixed in.  Then this blog became my third child and grew into something that I was really proud of and I put a lot of work and dedication into it.  Recently, Due to life in general and maybe a little lack of passion for it, I haven't put my heart into it like I really want to.  I had thought seriously about shutting down Mommy2TwoGirls, but after a serious talk with my husband who has been a HUGE supporter of my blog and what I have done, he told me to keep my blog and "get back to work".  When I was at home all of the time, he himself was really proud of what I accomplished on this blog and still often asks me about it and what is going on.  I have told him "not too much" as I just haven't had the time on the computer like I used to.  At the end of this month, he is buying me a laptop, which I am hoping will make things a little easier, especially when I am on the go and maybe sneak a little time at work.  I am hoping to find my passion for blogging again and to once again make this blog one of my priorities.  Trust me, it has been fun!  I am hoping to get more reviews, giveaways and other opportunities for YOU, my loyal readers and followers.  I have noticed that there have been at least 5 followers over the past few weeks that have left me, and I can imagine it is due to the fact that there hasn't been any new content for them to enjoy.  For that I apologize.  I have made a lot of New Year's resolutions this one, one that I fully plan on sticking and committing to.  Making this blog bigger and better than ever is one that I want to succeed at.  Thank you all who have stuck with me and helped me along the way.  I will NOT disappoint you!

Now onto some fun Friday Blogs Hops!  Have a great weekend!
