Kinda Boring Around Here

I've been a boring blogger lately, but I really have nothing interesting to blog about. We dropped Brian off at the airport yesterday afternoon to leave for his deployment. I haven't heard from him yet. Hopefully he made it there safely. He had a couple of long flights, so I'm sure he was super tired by the time he got there.The kids and I are getting back into a routine around here. We enjoyed watching the inauguration this morning. I liked Obama's speech and hope that he does a great job as president. I think Michelle Obama wear's the prettiest clothes! :-) She always looks so nice. I was not an Obama supporter, but I am keeping a positive attitude and staying hopeful. After we watched the inauguration I rode my recumbent bike for an hour. Today I'm starting to count calories and work out every day. I need to lose 50 pounds and would like to have it off by summer. It's an easy goal if I can stick with the plan !I haven't worked on anything for my house or to sell since before Christmas. I need a break from crafting ! I do think I might start working on a sampler for my room this week. We've gone to a couple movies in the past week ~ Mall Cop and finally Twilight. They were both good, but we loved Twilight ! Paige is reading the first book and then it's my turn to read it. She is begging me to go see it again, but I think we'll just wait for the DVD to come out in March. Paige has been practicing on her guitar that she got for Christmas. Boy it's hard at first ! I had to watch the DVD with her a few times before we understood it well enough to start practicing. She's doing good,though and not giving up ! She's persistent, so I know she'll learn it. So that's all that's going on around here. I'm running out to get a few things at the base and then back to clean up a bit before we watch our shows. It's the best TV night of the week for us ~ Biggest Loser and American Idol !I should go check the mail too, I hope my Country Sampler is here ! Have a great week ! Paige and her guitar

Hi Janae,
I am in agreement with you about the Obama's.
I wasn't a supporter of his either but I do STAND BEHIND any president we have and I wish them all well and hope we can all come to think the same. I'm proud to have been a witness to this historical moment in history.

I feel the same about myself with posting - I just can't come up with anything that anyone else would like to read...but I have treated it like a journal or a diary. Just putting my thoughts and ideas in my Blog.

You are doing great and I do hope you hear from your son soon.

Janae, I feel pretty boring, too. I'm not racing around here like I normally do. I have been painting the living room walls & started the kitchen cupboards, but just can't seem to get in a higher gear. It must be the weather, it's just so cold here that I don't even enjoy going outside. Hope you hear from your dh soon. Have fun tonight.

Hello Janae~
It must be a sickness going around~Boredom!
I have the same ailments! Don't know what to blog about...and my life is pretty boring to talk about!
I think it is because of the weather...not enough sun!!

I love the picture of your daughter and her guitar!

We weren't supporters of Obama either, but he is definitely in our prayers. All of our leaders are!

I wish you the best on losing the weight you want to lose! I'm doing the same!

Glad Brian made it safe. Paige looks very beautiful, as usual.

Add me to the bored list!! Why do you think all of my blog posts have been bloggy carnivals lately? LOL

You're lucky Twilight is showing around you - it's gone around here - but the book(s) is SO much better anyway!! Enjoy!!

Love the pic of your daughter!
