I Don't Want To Make You Jealous....But I Can Still Wear The Earrings I Wore In High School!

It's the end of summer.

I don't know if that is a good thing or not.

The kids are back in school. I don't know why Brianna got on the high school bus this morning. Can I really be old enough to have a high schooler?


2 down and one to go. The bitty one will be starting preschool next Monday. 3 days a week for 3 hours I will have nothing but deafening silence. She is so excited but I don't think that she realizes that Mom is not staying with her. She asked me what I was going to wear for my first day of preschool the other day.

Just a big huge smile honey!

Thank you to everyone for your concern. Thank goodness no bail was required! Now maybe things will settle down and get back to normal. Whatever normal is. Even some semblance of normal would be welcome.

I have decided on one thing though. The other day I was cleaning in the basement and came across some pics. I was looking through them. One pic I found and I thought "Who's the fat old lady.... OMG! THAT'S ME!" I don't know who thought that it would be funny to give me wrinkles and an extra 50 pounds but I don't find it amusing.... a bit! So one thing that I will be doing is changing the eating habits and starting a workout program. Yes I will! Right after I finish off that apple pie and gallon of ice cream.... Now to incorporate the diet with the family without them knowing it. For the next couple of weeks I am going to try. I'll also try to post the meal plans here if anyone else is interested.

As for these excercise DVDs, I don't know about them. I had to take a nap after just watching them to see what they had in store. I saw these tapes advertised on TV and thought they looked fun. Like working out without knowing you were working out. The fun part is that they also teach you how to do exotic dancing. I mean, did you expect me to get a normal workout tape?! I did start out with the small group which doesn't include the stripper pole and DVD tapes. I figured the last thing I need is to try to explain to everyone how I ended up with my ears wrapped around my butt trying to use it. I do have to say though that after watching these DVDs I now know why all the good strippers have bodies to kill for. If anyone else would like to be a closet stripper, here is the link for the DVDs.

I also have some recipes coming up. The garden has been overflowing and keeping me busy trying to keep up. I mean, how many different things can you do with a cucumber? I know that sounds weird after all the stripper pole talk, but I do have a "recipe" for you all that I am just nuts for. As for now, I have a menu to plan for the week....

OMG who hasn't found an extra 50 pounds(or in my case more.) It just happens, as kids loose teeth and the tooth fairy rewards them, Mommies gain weight and they reward themselves with sweets. It's a sign of maturing. Don't sweat it, just eat sensibly and stay healthy.

Glad you're back! Missed you and your wonderful sense of humor. If you are a mom, it's so easy to pack on a few pounds...eating is a great stress reliever! Give yourself a break. Get moving....it will come off. Get a camera, and keep posting.
