A lot is happening around here. The most exciting news of the day is that my brother-in-law has a girlfriend. I have not met her yet, but she seems like a gem. The reason this is notable is that he has not dated (to my knowledge) since I have known him (about 5 years). I am not sure why he has not dated, but he just hasn’t. So the fact he has and admits he has a girlfriend is exciting!! I have long wanted him to date someone….for his sake but also so I could have someone my age to hang out with at family functions. The relationship is new, but I am really happy for them!!
We took a family field trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday. It was super fun, but my camera battery was very low. I only got a few pictures. I have not uploaded them yet, though.
Brett and I saw Fireproof last night. As expected, the acting was not the best ever, but the movie was really good. I love the message and the truthfulness of it. Even though I am happy in my marriage, it was still very inspiring.
A few weeks ago, both of my kids were at hard stages. Just whining a lot. Well, in the last week, things have changed a lot. They are so much more content and are happier! Which, in turn, has made my attitude improve. I am so thankful!! I was beginning to feel like a horrible mom.
I am not sure if I have noted this, but Chloe is officially walking. It is amazing how much more grown kids look when they stand up.
As I have stated enough, this is the first time in a long time I have not been pregnant or nursing. I must say that I am very much enjoying the break!! Not having to worry about what I am eating/drinking is nice. Not that I am super careful, anyway, but last night, I could drink as much soda at the movies as I wanted, without worrying how the caffeine/fake sugar would effect my baby! I know I should probably be worried about myself, but I am not.
Well, that is not true. I have been eating better and exercising. It actually has felt quite good to get back into exercising!! I am not loving it, of course, but I do like the results.
I have to let you in on a little secret. I bought some Spanx yesterday. I found them on ebay for a good price (they are new, not used) and want to try them out. I hear they work body miracles. Even with working out, I could use a little help. Brett sweetly assured me I did not need them, but I let him in on the fact that since we plan to have more kids, I need all the help I can get. Spanx are way cheaper than a tummy tuck! I guess that is something one should not admit, but fortunately for me, only like 4 people read this!
I am not sure this post could get any more random. I probably should quit while I am ahead. Not that the topics discussed so far would put me ahead.
Have a great week!! If I look 10 pounds thinner next week, just pretend it is the exercise and not the Spanx :).
