Happy Anniversary to Me!!

It began 1 year ago. I entered the blogging world with this. And 145 posts later here I am. I have not posted much over the holidays because not much is going on. And I am been really busy over at Face Book catching up with old high school friends, old Army Friends and friends from Karate.

I also joined LA Fitness this weekend and signed up to work with a trainer. Had my first training session yesterday but had to cut it short. I guess you need to eat more than I had before working out. I got dizzy and nauseous. He said that those were the first symptoms of low blood sugar and that I should drink juice before I work out. You learn something new every day!

I will work with a trainer 2-3 times per week for the first couple of months and then I will go to once a week for the rest of the year.

On other news, my brother and Shay did get to open their presents on Friday and the ham arrived. Unfortunately, I still have not received the box that Shay mailed from Fairchild. I went to the post office on Friday and they checked in the back just in case it was there and I did not get a notice in my mail box. Nope, nothing. They ran the insurance tracking number and all they can say is that it was mailed from Fairchild and ha snot arrived here. Poor Shay is upset because she had it insured for only $100. The clerk said $50 or $100 and she thought that was all she could insure it for. I am still hopeful that it will arrive tomorrow. I did find out that you have to wait 21 days from the date of mailing before you can file a claim. I remember a Marine mom telling me once that renters insurance with USAA covered the loss of mailed stuff (laptop) for her son. I will be contacting them on Monday just to be sure. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Back to work tomorrow. I work 3 days and then have 4 days off (again). I bought so much new Christmas stuff that I want to go through all of my old stuff (lights and yard decorations) and get rid of stuff that I don't need. Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that I went to Target and Walmart and bought a bunch of new stuff. Animated Grazing Buck, 2 Doe's, a blow up Santa, blow up ornaments and gift boxes, and swag lights. I also found one of those light contraptions that allow you to connect multiple lights and then play it with music to have the lights dance to the music. I hope to have fun next year.

I am going to put my Queen Sleeper sectional on Craig's List today. Costco has a couch and love seat set that I want. The sectional is comfortable but we never have used the sleeper part and it makes it difficult to change furniture in the house. Wish me luck!

Congrats on this great blogging milestone! I look forward to reading new posts in the coming year!
Whew! You do have lots going on!
The first box I sent to John at Wright-Patt took almost a month to get to him via USPS...I sent his Christmas gifts UPS ground and he had it in 2 days... I do hope you find your box in the mail tomorrow!
It sounds as though you have found some great post-holiday sales. I too want the lit-up gift boxes from Wal-Mart...I just need to make the time to get there before they are gone!
Michelle, thank you for your is always a good read and I do look forward to reading you again soon!

You're so busy, it made me tired, girl. Sounds great though, and very good idea. I hope your box from Shay is here tomorrow!

Happy Blogaversary!! Glad that Shay got to spend Christmas with your brother...I'll keep my fingers crossed that her package will arrive.
Sounds like you are all set for the holiday decorating next year ;) Now you just have to remember that you bought all of that stuff and not shop for it again when the season comes around...I would do that...
Sounds like you are starting off the new year right, with a trainer. I'll be interested to see how that goes. I've considered getting a trainer before but it scares me a little bit since I have so many health issues to consider.
Good luck with Craigs list ;)

Happy Anniversary! I cant believe its been a year! I am so happy that you and I have crossed paths, I have to admit the AF mom and dads board really introduced me to some amazing people, and one of them is you!

I love your new background too!

I'm so glad that Shay didn't have to stay on base and be alone for Christmas. Bad enough to be away from mom for the first Christmas, but it would have been really hard to have been by herself.

Wow on one year blogging. I hope I make it.

Congrats, Michelle. I'm glad you are out here in the blog sphere!

You have been busy. I used to have a light thing that you plug into and the music and lights were together, if they have another one get it for me would you. I have not found one in years around here. What store did you get it at? Maybe I could find one on line? I miss that so much. I just have NO IDEA where my other one is.
I sure hope your gifts get to you from Shay, how sad and disappointing for her. Please let us all know WHEN it gets there.
What a year it has been, hope you have a great NYE and enjoy your next four days off. Take care!
