enough already!!

Dear Body Fat,

Please consider this letter as your official eviction notice. I don't feel this living arrangement we have is working out. Please pack your bags and vacate the premises immediately. If you put up any kind of fight, drastic measures will be taken. I think the skinny lady next door has a vacancy!!

Thanks for the memories,

So sore today!

And it's my own fault. I didn't go to the gym in over a week and I pushed myself yesterday. I took 2 classes, one of which is a spin class. So, my butt is sore! I only have just over 3 weeks to go until my husband and I go away for a few days, and while I don't plan on having a free-for-all at any buffet style restaurants, I want to lose what I can. Tomorrow I'm going back to use weights. Should be fun.

On another note, my 9 year old son is reading the Twilight series. My daughter read it and so did I, so I really didn't think it was much of a big deal. Well, he is reading the last book and has been asking me questions about sex!! I really did not want to be having this conversation with the boys. I had hoped that I would talk to the girls and Joe would talk to the boys, but it's not working out according to that plan. When I told him that you got pregnant by having sex, he quickly did the math and asked me about my own 4 pregnancies. Um, yeah I really wanted to have this conversation. You know, when I explained all this to Aislinn, she was MORTIFIED and wanted to forget we ever talked at all. Not Aidan. He wants to know How everything works and WHY in the world anyone would ever do such a thing in the first place!! Needless to say, he has taken an oath NEVER to have sex or fall in love at all. Gotta love little boys!! Have a nice night, I need a drink.

Happy Thursday!

Today has been a bad day. I'm still miserable from allergies. I don't think they have ever been this bad for me. I swear, I only have to walk outside, and everything in my head just closes up and I can't breathe! It's horrible. I have even been thinking of getting one of those things where you squirt warm water mixed with some saline up one side of your nose and everything drains out the other side. The thought alone gives me the creeps, but I'm desperate!! I've also decided not to diet or exercise today. Actually I haven't been to the gym in a week. (mainly because I haven't felt good) Then, when I had to run an errand today, I got the mail which had a letter to me and my husband, from the IRS. It was *NOT* good news. Apparently I made an error in my 2007 taxes and out of the goodness of their hearts, they decided to let me know that they are giving me a couple of weeks to give them back a chunk of their money. The same time all of Maeve's hospital, ambulance, oxygen, etc. bills are due. Someone shoot me. But not before I have some ice cream.

It's all Facebook's fault!

Wow, I can't believe I let so much time go since my last post. What can I say? I have discovered Facebook! I'm probably the last person in the free world to sign up. I've come across so many people from high school that actually remember who I am! Anyhow, I am back.

Since St Patty's Day, we have been super busy with baseball. I swear, in this end of the country, when baseball starts, everything else stops. We have practice two days a week and games at least once, sometime twice a week. Each practice is for 2 hours! You would think that the coaches were expecting scouts to show up. I mean, c'mon! It's LITTLE LEAGUE! Also, my MIL was here for a short visit. While she was here, I had to go to Atlanta for acupuncture, went to a Twilight party, and was visiting a friend from Birmingham. I think she was a little put off that I was out so much while she was here. What can I say? Timing is everything! Actually, I enjoy it when she comes to visit. It gives me and Joe a little break.

Now, my kids are on spring break and my niece and nephew are here from Florida for the week. Yesterday I took most of the kids to the movies to see Pink Panther 2. The movie was a riot. I just love Steve Martin. Today, I took all 6 kids to Stevie B's for lunch and then to Monkey Joe's to burn off some energy. It has been raining for what seems like a month!! I am so sick of it already. I can't get out to get the grass cut and the weeds are rapidly taking over the lawn!

Not sure what the rest of the week holds. I'm hoping for sunshine. For now, we are watching Twilight - again!!
