15 years from now....

In January 2026, our house will be paid off....maybe earlier if we can pay extra towards the principal! This is assuming nothing crazy comes up. We closed on our refinance on Thursday after weeks of exhausting paperwork, phone calls and e-mails. I know it will be worth it! I am so grateful that we were able to take advantage of the low interest rates.

More running, less eating

Since my Ragnar race in October, I have gained 10 pounds! How did this happen?? I'll tell got cold and I got lazy! That's right, no running! Its really upsetting to me because I know how hard I will have to work to lose it again. It doesn't help that I am eating everything in sight!
We started another weight loss competition at work a little while far, no good! I feel like I need to eat everthing like its the last time I will ever get a chance. My clothes are tight, I am not sleeping well and I just overall feel crappy! I am wishing and hoping that someday really soon I will snap out of it and find the energy and motivation I need to get in gear!

Other news....
We are refinancing our house to a 15-year mortgage. It has been frustrating and stressful! Every day is another problem. It makes me wonder what it would be like if we didn't have excellent credit and equity in our home. They say we will be able to close by the 28th....I won't hold my breath!

Kenlee went to the dentist yesterday. She has been having some tooth pain and she lost a filling in a permanent molar. It turns out, she has to get a root canal in that molar. I can't believe it. We don't have dental insurance so I'm sure that will cost a pretty penny.

Anyway...kind of a depressing post today. That's just life, right?

Christmas and ending 2010

I really wasn't good at taking pictures during the holidays. Here are a few moments I captured..
Christmas Eve at Grandma Baker's party.
The girls got pajamas from Grandma Miller

Kenlee, christmas morning

WHAT I GOT! Garmin GPS watch
We had a really nice Christmas. My father-in-law, Ken, spent the day with us eating and hanging out.
The older I get the more I look forward to just getting the holidays over with. The stress almost pushes me over the edge!
Here's to a FABULOUS 2011.....we ALL deserve it!
