Here’s the cake that hubby has been making since he has been home being a homemaker while looking for a new job…

He’s been making chocolate cake and chocolate pudding…

The ones in the above picture are chocolate cake with banana pudding with banana cut up in it…

We are thinking lemon cake with lemon pudding next…

And hubby even saw strawberry pudding for strawberry cake…

The possibilities are endless…

And it is less than $4.00 to make… two boxes of cake mix and two boxes of pudding…

I can’t decide what I want to read next… For Christmas son1 got me the fourth book in Nora Robert’s Wedding Quartet, Happy Ever After… So since Christmas I read it then all three of first ones again and then Happy Ever After again… They are that good!!

So now I don’t know if I am in the mood for Stephen King, Richard Castle, more Nora Roberts, Narnia, Harry Potter~the last book to get ready for the last movies, or reread The Dark Tower series again…

Today was my day off… Got son2 off to school… Hubby drove son3 today as it was raining… Then hubby and I had breakfast and went to Walmart… I haven’t been to Walmart since before hubby lost his job in August… But finally had to breakdown and get some shampoo, deodorant, vitamins…. I was running low on a few things… Also got the boys an umbrella as the old one was broken and found son3 a backpack for school as his had a broken zipper… Son3 also needed socks and briefs as his were getting small… I was mainly looking for me some pants for work as mine are all still too big although not as much since I still haven’t lost those pounds I gained over the holidays… And plus I need new ones in case I do get the lead position… as I have been wearing jeans and we are not supposed to but I get away with it since I am mostly in the back opening boxes… They had nothing pant wise, well nothing in my new size, had some bigger sizes in the styles I was looking at… I did find a pair of jeans in a smaller size than the ones I am wearing… So I got one pair… I have ones that are size 14 that I wear at home and they are too big… I wear size 12 to work that were getting too big but have been fitting ok since the few pounds that came back… So today I bought a 10… First thing when I got home I tried them on… They are skin tight but I did button and zip them and I could still breath… Yay Me!! maybe just the motivation I need to stop eating again… Hubby has been cleaning the garage and we can now get to the weight system again… and we were doing so much more walking before the holidays…

After Walmart hubby and I watched Emergency and I ate popcorn this afternoon… I had bought some for son2’s party… Did I mention he has about six friends coming over this Saturday for an after birthday get together… They’ll have pizza, chips, dips, popcorn, and tea and soda… Movies and XBox games and board games… Hubby, son3 and I will stay in our rooms with our computers and movies… maybe I’ll even clean my bathroom…

Son3 and I got his homework done… I made chicken quesadillas for dinner… and hubby had to pick up son2 from tennis as it was hailing, so they got out before the buses came… Now we are watching Mike and Molly and Hawaii 50… Son2 has to pick his classes for school for next year by Friday… and he brought home the order form for his tennis uniform… and son3 brought home a permission slip for his field trip to San Juan Bautista Mission next month…

I’m gonna finish watching Hawaii 50 and get everyone ready for bed… I’m tired… I am happy to report that at work they have brought up all the boxes from receiving… we have til Saturday to get them all opened and put away… Anything in the warehouse is new that came off the truck this week… Woo Hoo… We were supposed to have a visit from the district shoe guy today, I wonder if he came…

Tomorrow is Thursday so don’t forget to visit me at The Motivation Station for Thursdays With Linda…

Happy Journaling…

How wonderful to be a size smaller - I'm proud of you! =)

Son 3's box is great - job well done.

And the cake with pudding looks so good - care to share what he does?

Speaking of walking, yay....I did my workout on my new treadmill today and just loved it!! It's a little harder than my old one as it has an incline. I should be back in my favorite clothes in no time at all. LOL I could only do ten minutes today... I'm so out of shape even after a week of painting with hubby. Wanna come clean my bathrooms???? We skipped Valentines this year... we were sooooooo busy with painting. I'm going to make belated heart cookies.
