Hey, darling Ruth
...I'm so thrilled to hear you so happy!
Great that the greenhouse will be open...I can't imagine your spring without trips there...it sounds like such a major part of your life at that time of year! The party sounds like so much fun! Will the home let you bring Hersh to visit her 'daddy'? I think a big sombrero is in order!
Or perhaps red, green, and white ribbons for the Mexican flag?
, I was looking at pics from a friend's sister's baby shower yesterday. Like your sis, hers was surprised (and elated) by her pregnancy and the pics were wonderful. She definitely cried the most at the personal gifts like your sweaters will be. I bet your darling sis will be so thrilled. And hey, who are we kidding? Most of the presents really are for the parents.
What baby says, "Yeah, I'm looking good today...what a cute outfit!"
Have a blast, hon, and don't break the bank...it's WAY too easy to buy tons when you are shopping for a darling baby!
How super exciting! Though I try not to get down when I see a bad number on the scale, I must admit that I have such a high when the number is low...and almost nothing can change that feeling! Enjoy your breakfast...it sounds amazing!
, you have a good day, hon!
, I missed the post about your elbow...I'm so sorry you're hurt!
Hope you heal quickly so you can enjoy all your favorite things again (like homework...
...what a mess with the traffic and cancelling buyers! And your face!!!
I hope you feel better very soon! What do you think you were allergic to? I actually talked with my doctor about my allergic reaction to mosquito bites, and he recommended that I take a claritin after I'm bit instead of benedryl. He thought it worked better and more quickly.
Worth asking your doctor about, in case the benedryl doesn't cut it.
, honey, you're dealing with a LOT right now! I don't know about you, but after a year of teaching, I need several weeks to just lie on the couch and stare at the ceiling...it takes a lot out of you! On top of that, you just had a baby, honey!
You are so amazing that I don't think you're quite aware of the toll that took on you! And now you have a baby and a little one to take care of at the same time. Kiko needs rest!!! Any chance that somone could take the kiddos for an afternoon so you can get in a long nap? Take care of yourself, okay, hon? And keep eating good protein and good carb combos to keep your energy up...that other food works more quickly but it wears off just as fast and leaves you worse off than before. You can do this, hon!
Good for you on not eating popcorn!
Don't beat yourself up in working out is too hard in P1...a lot of people wait until P2 to get back into exercising. It's tough during detox because your body can just feel 'thrashed'.
Well, in spite of TOM and a late night carb serving (didn't have any at dinner so ate it when I got home), I was down to 208 today.
It's so nice to be below 210 that I'm not stressing about meeting my goal. Though this weekend and next I'll be away and when I'm away from home I tend to lose as I don't eat much.
This weekend we're going to a Marriage Encounter retreat. DH and I have wanted to do it for a very long time, since we really loved our Engaged Encounter experience. This sunday is our 6 year anniversary
and so it seemed perfect.
I'm not sure if we're at the same retreat house as last time, but if so, it's in a large mansion that was turned into a convent. It's right on a lake with beautiful grounds and a lovely chapel with a view of that lake. Very, very nice! 22 couples are registered and so maybe we'll make some new friends!
I'm going nuts at work...so much to do and no way I'll finish in time.
At least I know that no matter what, I'm done after next Wednesday. I cannot wait!!!
I have an orientation for my summer program on that Thursday, then we have the weekend off. Starting July 5, I'll be student teaching for six weeks in reading for my second teaching certification. I'm
that the program will be better than last year's. That was terribly disorganized and mis-handled.
Either way, I'll be done for GOOD in August!
Have a great afternoon, chickies!
