Happy Tenth

We celebrated the youngest child’s tenth birthday yesterday. We had cake and presents and we took her out to dinner. She got some pretty good loot from ol’ mom and dad and has a card in the mail from my mom and a little something is on the way from Jennifer. She also got a card from Geoffrey at Toys R Us, a phone call from my mom, the Mister’s mom, and the Mister’s sister. Jennifer also called to make sure she got some birthday love. Why the rundown? Because she is normally forgotten on her birthday. The oldest child’s birthday is in July which is when they are in Ohio with the family. She always gets at least one party, more often it’s two or more though. She gets a couple cakes, TONS of presents, and lots of attention. Because the youngest child’s birthday is in February and all the family is still back in Ohio, they forget to call and they hardly ever send her anything. It’s sad and it’s unfair. Either show them both the same amount of attention or none at all. So this year, she talked to three of her six grandparents (welcome to the world of a multiply divorced family) and one of her four aunts and uncles (I didn’t count spouses.). It’s better than last year.


The Mister and I overindulged on dinner out and birthday cake last night and paid the price. We were up a good part of the night (and this morning for me) with upset tummies. I guess we can’t go from eating 95% healthy stuff to eating junk and not have some side effects from it. We also both had headaches which I think was from the sugar. How sad are we, lmao??

Today marks day one of week four of working out and eating right. At my weigh in yesterday, last day of week three, I had lost 8 pounds. 8 pounds in three weeks!! I’m pretty excited about that. I have one pair of jeans that are too big on me now and the Mister calls them my saggy butt jeans, heheh. My other jeans fit nicely and are finally comfortable. It’s nice to be able to have tangible evidence that the hard work and sacrifices are paying off.

Back to work for me.


  1. Woohoo! 8 pounds is awesome! Congrats!

    I know what you mean about overendulging. I've paid teh price before too after eating healthy and then splurging. Makes me wonder if it's worth it.

  2. Also, happy birthday to your daughter!

  3. Thanks Pam. I have to hope that it's worth it because if I don't, I'll never stick to my diet.

    And thanks for the happy birthday as well. I'll pass it along.

  4. That's awesome about the eight pounds! Good for you! I'm seriously thinking about getting back into a workout schedule.

    I have to email you about my day today. If you don't get something tonight then tomorrow for sure :o)

  5. Dana~~Oooh! I can't wait to hear from you. We seriously need to catch up.
