Well, I have managed to stay at or below 145 pounds. I am not really dieting and am definitely not exercising at the moment. I have the baking bug — dutch babies, sugar cookies with homemade buttercream frosting, blondies, marshmallows, popcorn balls, roasted pecans, basically nothing healthy. It’s been fun though. I can’t wait until ball starts again. I get a nasty case of seasonal depression and I know it’s bad if I feel this way before Christmas.
I am getting baby boy a 7.5 foot teepee for Christmas this year. I would have loved a teepee. Since I turned my office into a playroom for him, it will have its own home. He is running and talking up a storm. He talks to strangers, shampoo, oven mitts, furniture, our Christmas tree, my cat — everything. He is so freaking cute! I wish I could keep up with his energy better. We try to go somewhere every day so as not to get cabin fever. I spend a lot of time in Target, Costco, the mall. On the weekends, we try to do fun things like go to farmer’s markets. In October we hit the pumpkin patch. I joined the YMCA, but it’s just seems like a hassle. I feel really bad about taking him to the daycare — almost guilty. He cries and cries and looks at me like I am abandoning him. So I end up feeling so bad, my workout lasts 20 minutes and we leave or I won’t workout at all and we go to Starbucks. Sucks.
