I guess this is the week for bloggy get togethers. Tuesday night I went with Motherboard and Sarah, over to Amber's house, and visited with them and Jo and Veronica. It was a blast! I had no idea that I could be so comfortable with a group of women, who a few months ago, were complete strangers. I also had no idea that so many anatomical words could be used in one discussion. Thanks, Jo, for enlightening us!
There is also a dinner tonight. I'm really excited because I get to hang with my two wanna-be sisters Amber and DeNae. I'm still working on getting adopted into their family.
Then tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to lunch with one of my favorite blogging friends, Erin.
We met once at Kristina's lunch several months ago, but didn't get to chat for very long, so I'm excited to spend some more time with her!
I just have one question. Why couldn't you all consolidate? I'm feeling a little bit guilty for all the playing I'm doing this week, away from my family. But not too guilty, because C is going away on a golfing trip next weekend with his buddies, so it all comes out in the wash.
Ok, this no sugar this is getting REALLY hard. The first week was easy. I hardly even had to think about it. Then, I went to that little get together on Tuesday night. And didn't get home until almost 1 am. After getting up that morning at 4:45 am to run. Then Wednesday morning, I had to get up to drive the monkeys to swimming lessons. Then tumbling, then the grocery store, and of course I had to actually be a mother and feed my children. I was dog tired ALL DAY LONG. I think I finally hit my sugar withdrawal. My head was spinning, my vision was blurry, I had the shakes, I was sweating, I snapped at the kids for the tiniest little thing. Finally around 4 pm, I caved, after craving Coke and sugar all day. I had a hand full of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and half a sleeve of Club crackers. Then I drank a bottle of water and I'm no chemist or anything, but apparently that's a bad combination because I had the worst, twisting, wrenching stomach pain EVER! It persisted until after I went to bed (at around 9:30).
I was doing great again until this afternoon when I was outside and not paying attention, and KJ was inside making chocolate chip cookies without permission. Well, I can't have cookies lying around the house and not eat one!! So much for self control. So much for will power.
I'm in the throws of a major relapse right now. I think I need a sponsor or something like they do for AA.
Did you listen to my interview yet? It'll be up til next Tuesday.
I think I may have found a slight remedy for my children's ADD and selective hearing loss. On Monday, we had a no TV day. All day. I can't believe how much we got done. They cleaned their rooms, emptied the dishwasher, put away their clean clothes, cleaned the family room, and played outside. And it was so nice to have some peace and quiet without Hannah Montana and Zack and Cody blasting through my house all day. I'd like to get rid of the TV all together. But I can only give up one thing at a time.
I need some new music. I've had the same stuff on my Ipod forever and I'm tired of it. Any suggestions?
