On to the next chapter

Today  the kids went back to school. Ralphy started Pk-3(  Pre-Kindergarten for 3 year olds) and he got to wear his big boy uniform. Green polo shirt and khaki pants. He looked so cute!  He  even told me he looked like the older kids and he liked that.  Its so crazy how one minute he is born and the next he's going to PK3, I mean who gave him permission to grow up so fast?

Then I started thinking that in a few months, he turns 4 and then next year he starts VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten) and   my heart starts beating fast, my hands start sweating, then before I know it, he will have a girlfriend and be off to college and get a job and get married and have children.... OMG!!. Okay, I'm done. I get a tiny bit carried away. Sometimes.

The important thing is that Ralphy had a  great day and he told me that he also learned that  how only babies acted like "babies", but  that he was a big boy, so he knew better. Lets see how long that lasts.

First day of PK-3

On my mind this week

   Because I want to look like this :

What?  I'm in denial .. I know, but I want to get as close to that as possible. So, I've been eating every 3 hours and doing a lot of this:


And this:

And  of course this: 

And a little bit of this:

Why didn't anyone tell me that exercising in the morning gave you so much energy? Its like the world's greatest kept secret. Side note- if you're new to my blog, this is my attempt at humor, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. You decide.

What's on your mind this week?

P.S. Just in case you were wondering, these people are not me. This is me:

This  was me on 8/6/2011 going to a party. I  clean up well don't I?

I hope you all had a great and relaxing weekend. I for one, had a very busy weekend, but then again what else is new?. I had a lot of things to do around the house. If you read my previous post, you know I was having major issues last week because I was so behind with my cleaning. Doing the bare minimum can only get you so far, but I digress.

I also started working out!  Yes, people I finally did it. I set my alarm clock for 4:50A and I was at the gym by 5:11A. I'm not going to lie, when I got home after my work out and I took a shower, I felt great, I felt accomplished. I felt like I could do it all.  I like that feeling and I plan to continue going not only to  look better, but feel better as well.

Speaking of feeling better,  I also went for a manicure and pedicure.  My mom and I have being going every other week. I think its so important to treat yourself to a little girl time. Wether its with a friend, your sister  or your mom, nothing makes you feel better than some girl time, especially if  it  includes  a mani and pedi, well  a pair of new shoes would work just fine as well. :)

So how was your weekend? What did you  guys do?

Overwhelmed much?

This is how I'm feeling this week, don't really know why.  I've noticed that I get like this when my house (and by house I mean our 2 bedroom/2bath apartment)  is not as neat or clean as I want it to be. The last couple of weekends have been busy, so I really haven't done much, but the bare minimum. Is  it bad that the state your house is in, determines the way your state of mind is? or even your mood? But, that's just part of it, between work, Ralphy and of course, the husband, it takes work and it can feel a little overwhelming sometimes.
I'm planning on getting things back on track this weekend and do some major cleaning and organizing. I'm also adding working out to my list, but I  see that as a good thing.  I will keep you posted on that little project. In the mean time,I will be content  just by having a  clean house... Well, a new pair of shoes would be nice, but for now, I'll take the  clean house.

Mommy, I want a little brother..

This is what Ralphy said to me a couple days ago. It actually caught me by surprise, I didn't even know what to say and then he added " not a sister mommy a brother, I already have a sister." My son, has an older sister that he loves. He loves to bother her and play with her, he loves to get her attention.

She is  10 years older than him and she doesn't live with us, but she stays with us during the Summer and now that Ralphy is getting a little older, he's really enjoying  the time with her even more and I love it. They are cute together in a loud and crazy kind of way. Just like a brother and sister should  be.

You may be asking yourself " what's the big deal about Ralphy wanting a little brother?" The problem is that my husband doesn't  want anymore kids.  The way things are with the economy and everything else in the world, he  thinks it would be hard for us  in the financial  department and I get that and I know his right. He wants to be able to provide for both of his kids and I guess he feels that 3 (for him)  is too big of a number and I understand, I really do, but  I want another baby. There I said it.

I have friends that were  the only  child growing up and they all  say the same thing " I wished  I had a brother or sister."  I sometimes think about that and it breaks my heart to think that Ralphy is going  to be lonely. I can't imagine how my life would have been like without my brother. We have a special bond and I would love for Ralphy to have that as well.

Ralphy is blessed, he has his sister and he has his cousins that he loves and I know he will have a great relationship with them. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I remain hopeful that one day my husband will change his mind and if it doesn't happen, then it was just not meant to be and I will forever be thankful for the son I do have, but I'm not going to lie, it sure would be nice.

New month.. New Attitude!

  I can't believe its  already  August. Time does fly when you're having fun. I for one, I'm so happy its August for several reasons, but my main reason is that Summer is almost over. Yes,  people I'm part of the few that do not like  the heat. I can't stand what it does to my hair. I'm a complete frizz ball if I don't walk around with a flat iron. Just kidding, I don't walk around with a flat iron, but you know what I mean. Everyone woman in the  universe knows that the best hair days come after Summer. Its a fact of life. Okay, enough of that, lets move on.

This month, I'm  also trying to be a little bit healthier with my eating ( what else is new), but not only that, I'm going back to the  gym! You can all close your mouths now. Its way over due. I don't like the way I've been  feeling lately and I know  its because I haven't being  feeling great about my looks and  when I say looks, I mean my weight. So, its time to get off my lazy ass and do something about it. Plain and simple. That's coming up  soon, so as soon as I start, I will update for sure.  Should I do a before picture post?? hmmmm let me think about that some more.

 I also wanted to introduce to you my dear friend Angel, she started blogging  at  mommy all day, she is a stay at home mom ( well sort of she  just went back to work) and  she has two amazing kids. You will  have to read her blog to find out more. So, please stop by and tell her Alex sent you  :)

I hope you all have an amazing week and amazing month of August.
