One More!

I just had to take a pause and give a little shout of joy. I've lost another pound! I've broken the stand-still! Hoo-hah!

Time to celebrate.... Hmmm, where's that Halloween candy. :D

Going Green

I'll admit. I'm a jealous person. I always have been, and I probably always will be. Granted, I've mellowed a bit over the years. But every once in a while, the Green Monster crammed deep inside my subconscious will rear her ugly head. Right now I'm struggling with one jealousy-hued item in my life. I won't go into the nasty details, but suffice it to say, I'm wishing I was better at this human-existence-thing. The funny thing is, whenever I'm truly jealous, its always over things with meaning, like time spent, laughter shared, or the lady in the grocery store who's children sit quietly in the shopping cart while she leisurely strolls through the veggie section (ok, this isn't quite a jealousy item, more a wishful thinking item, but I digress), etc. Not so much the 90" screen TV or Hummer in the driveway... Although I've been known to silently curse skinny people that eat loads of chocolate and pasta and don't gain a pound. :)

So, my question, is how do you get over yourself? How do you get past those loaded with green moments? Or, are you one of those people that don't have those moments, because yes, I'm jealous of you too...

The Best Medicine

So, I've been a little stressed lately. Having extra kids at your house tends to do that. However, the parents are coming home today and so that will soon be a 'happy?' memory.

I've also been stressed about the upcoming election, but that has also been allieviated due to a bit of comic relief. On Friday night, a good friend dressed up as a Republican hoping to win the scariest costume award: complete with a sign that said "drill baby drill," a very Bush-esque quality about his entire ensemble & a few buttons on his lapel. My personal favorite was one with Sarah Palin's picture and "You Go Girl!" on it. Then, just this morning, I received the following comic. Whatever your political views, I hope you enjoy the humor of both. (Don't forget to vote!)So, with a little bit of Diet Dr. Pepper at my side (Thanks, Hillary!), and a chuckle on my lips, I bid adieu to my forgotten stresses. :)

Baby Train

As Hubby & I were waking up this morning, he rolled over to me and I asked him what he had on his schedule today. He jokingly replied, "Making babies." I think I surprised him by how quickly I shot that one down. :)

So, that brings me to my question I'm shooting off into oblivion. How do you know if you are really done having kids? Everyone always says, "Oh, you'll know." OK... Really. HOW!??!

There. Stew about that dark oblivion.

Incredible 'Feet'

A is FINALLY walking. He is 15 months and decided on Sunday, (after literally running behind his little push bike) that he wasn't going to fall and decided to try his hand at walking across the entire downstairs without so much as a hesitation. He is so proud of himself. Every time he starts out, he just starts giggling. Its like he's all, "Check me OUT!" It's pretty fun. So, yeah for me and not having to worry if he's going to have developmental issues. Now if I can just keep up with all three of them...

OK, you gym gurus out there: Listen up. ;)

I am a little confused, perplexed, irritated, embarrassed, concerned, *insert appropriate word* about something that happened at the gym today. While I was working out, I got extremely dizzy to the point that I almost passed out. Yes, it was a more-intense exercise, but I've pushed myself this hard before and haven't had any problems. Why do you think that I had a problem? Anyway, if you can help me figure out so I don't embarrass myself in the middle of my class again *cringe*, that would be great. Thanks!
