I'm so glad things are going great for you. Seems we have a lot in common! I too have small children and a darling hubby. I am part of a Christian music/theatre group and LONG for the days when I can dance and not worry about what is shaking!
I go for my ultrasound on January 8 - the surgeon's office called me today - but I was at work 'til just a bit ago - so I didn't get to call them back on time. Too bad they didn't call me at work ... I work in the same medical center! I hope they didn't have a cancellation today that I could've made it to! Oh, well, no fretting now - I'll have to weight (ha-ha).
I am feeling as though I have eaten EVERYTHING over the holidays. Two of my close friends have been going through VERY tough times and I take it all to heart - or to my waist. I'm great in a crisis situation - however once the drama is over - get me the doritos! I know this will have to change after the surgery. DH has agreed that I can get acquainted with the treadmill anytime I want to - and midnight walks for stress relief might be what I need!
How are you coping - or are you just too focused on 'doing it right' and taking full advantage of this wonderful opportunity? I think that will help me.
