I’ve finally got a free minute to pop on in & write a blog post. It feels like forever. Tis the season I guess!
I’ve been busy keeping Natie busy. He’s at the “terrible two’s” stage & good Lord, it’s tough. I went from having an adorable angel to an adorable devil. The tantrums. eek!
Who is this kid? I was tempted to break out the Holy Water we have & see if his forehead singed….no, but really… Between that & his two year old molars coming in the house has been up 24/7. This is coming from a kid who would sleep from 6:30pm-6:30am like clockwork. It’s an adjustment for everyone & has my patience wearing thin. I keep hearing it’s just a phase & am holding onto that. Let’s move on to the next please & I pray it’s a good one.
On top of that, Thanksgiving was a wash. We were planning on keeping it simple this year anyway, so it wasn’t that big of a deal, but the day before I got a call from Natie’s daycare that he was vomiting. When you get that call you have to head over & pick him up. I made it just in time to get a hug & round two all over myself & him. He barely had another change of clothes & well, I didn’t. So we both headed home half naked on that cold, rainy day. Needless to say after a night of that I didn’t feel like cooking a Thanksgiving meal. So we took it easy & started decorating for Christmas. Turns out the bug wasn’t out of our house because both Natie & I got sick again on Friday to where Rich had to take off of work on Saturday to care for us. His job wasn’t too thrilled & thought he was trying to get a 4 day weekend out of the deal. Umm…no.
Despite all the craziness I managed to lose 3.6 the first week & 3.4 the second for a total of 7lbs. I’m not expecting a big loss this week, but anything would be nice after two big losses. So what’s the mysterious thing I’m doing… Weight Watchers & working with the tools my Nutritionist gave me. I found I need the accountability of WW meetings. I was blessed to have found a leader & group of people that I love! I hit it off with them right off the bat. Add to the mix the info I’ve learned from my nutritionist & I’m on a roll. I could have gone to her weekly, but financially it just wasn’t going to work.
I’m hoping I can get Natie back on schedule so I can get on here more often. Lately at night he’s been so difficult that by the time he gets to sleep & I have dinner I’m ready for bed. Until then….
