Fi---fth Day Of School

So first of all…I did get pictures from the first week.  Go Self.  You can probably tell from these pictures which kid is excited about school and which one isn’t.  Also, the one who “Isn’t” was not cooperative for pictures this morning either. 


I don’t have a picture of me from the fi---fth day of school, but if I did, I’d look more like the excited one.  *GRIN*  I have been on a roll around the house…it’s shaping up finally. 

While we’re on the topic of rolls and shaping up…let’s just say I am turning INTO a roll and I need to shape up.  I’m not one of those skinny girls going around complaining about being fat, but when I have extra weight past my normal range, I just feel icky and it bugs me.  I have an ideal weight and I like to stay there.  Usually this isn’t a problem, but when we got back from Haiti and I weighed in with an extra five pounds (yeah, who goes to Haiti for a week and comes back heavier anyway…what’s up with that?!) and then I’ve spent the last two weeks since craving every sugary chocolatey thing I can get my mouth on…well…something’s gotta give.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me (except I’m NOT PG…I do know that).  So…I’m gonna start exercising and making myself not give into crazy cravings.  Starting…next week.  LOL.  Ugh. 

And for tonight, I’m going to go quench my thirst and go to bed.  Maybe I’ll have weirder dreams than last night (although, that would be quite a feat).  Apparently I woke up in the middle of the night last night and had a conversation about Russian wedding dresses with KC (who was suffering from insomnia and obviously needed to be entertained).  The thing is, I partly remember the conversation and I thought I was awake and making perfect sense about the logic of this wedding gown made of very heavy fabric that I was working on…then I tried to move the wedding gown and realized I was actually wrestling with the comforter and woke up.  Evidently we need a lighter blanket (since KC was having trouble sleeping because he was hot, and I’m assuming I had issues with the weight of the blanket also, given that I was wrestling with it in the shape of a heavy, green, embroidered, Russian wedding dress in my dreams).  Wonder what the meaning of THAT dream was…besides that I need a lighter blanket?!  LOL.

SO here’s to cooler dreams.  Nighty night. 


  1. Hahaha. It would do me good to go to bed! I was laughing through the last paragraph... I can imagine what my sister is thinking. I think the girls are getting excited for school. Now that I have blathered back.... Love ya! Maybe we can meet for lunch soon. I have Monday off :)

  2. HAAA! I get you. I'm usually quite slender, too, but gained a few pounds last winter that I haven't been able to get rid of, and although I can still fit my clothes, they're tighter and I feel just yuck. The wedding dress conversation made me laugh as well. A good way to start my morning!

  3. I can seriously envision you jabbering and wrestling with the blanket. That's great. I can also imagine your hubby taking serious advantage of you while having a big laugh! LOL


Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
