A new normal for all of us....

Today Duste’s first day at her new job! Ivy and I both got up with her to make sure she had a good morning. Ivy was a little confused, but with some consistency she will get used to the new schedule.

 My Duste has to be to work at 5:30am—which means she gets up at 4:45. We get our lunches together the night before so mornings are such a rush for either of us. The plan is: Duste will get up and let Ivy walk around with her and go potty outside, and then before she leaves Ivy will be put in the bedroom with me—where I will sleep until 6:45 or 7:45 depending on the day. On my way to work I will take Ivy to school, except on Wednesday’s which is my day off.  Once the line gets caught up Duste will be off Friday so that is one less day of doggie school. Our poor baby, it will take some time to get used to the new normal but I am sure she will adjust.

We are a two income household once again—I am both happy and sad. I loved all the time we got to spend together and that is what I will miss the most. We just cannot get enough of each other! The money will be nice, as our house fund is getting low. But I will always prefer time over money.

We spent 4 hours on Sunday getting our lunches ready for the week and getting some dinners frozen for the busy after work dinner rush. It can be challenging to eat right--lunch, snack and dinners when both of you work but we are giving it our best! Speaking of which next week will make the One Month Mark for our lifestyle change! We will be doing a measurement and weight check as well as taking pictures! Two more months left of our 90 day Challenge!


Getting fat is so much easier then getting back in shape!

  1. I love our life and our lifestyle change... but not the working 50 hours a week part.
