Light & Airy Random Thoughts

As promised this blog will be light and airy...breezy! I'm staying above the surface today, so no need to have a box of tissues near by (not like you did before). So I'm sitting on my couch right now while Owen is watching the Backyardigans. I think he watches it too much. Do you why I think this? Because I get the songs stuck in my head for days on end. You know you're a mom with toddlers when you find yourself humming, singing, whistling songs from your kid's favorite shows. Now we actually like the Backyardigans. It's one of the few shows where I don't find myself rolling my eyes at the cheesiness. Still, who wants to be caught singing the theme to the Racing Day episode while standing in line at the grocery store? It certainly doesn't leave me feeling cool. Luckily, though, Owen asks for the Backyardigans and not the Doodlebops or Barney. There could be worse things you know.

I lost a pound this week. Finally, the scale is moving in the right direction. I tell ya, it has been so difficult to lose this baby weight. And I didn't even gain that much with Blake. Granted I knew that as you get older, it gets harder to shed the pounds, but I thought that meant when I was like 60, not before I'm 30. Yikes! I'm working hard, so if we do have another baby, I'm not playing the scale game with the next one. I'm weary about setting a specific goal though. The last time I hit my goal weight, I got pregnant with Blake...not sure I'm ready for that one. Double yikes! So I'm working it...hard. I even have a trainer that I pay for with Pampered Chef. It's a win-win situation...as long as I'm actually losing weight!

Speaking of Pampered Chef, I love my business, but if Neil takes this job, I think I'll leave my business behind. It might be too much to try to restart my business down there while I'm settling into a new life. It would be a difficult decision, but I'm sure Clare would be excited since I would encourage my customers to use her. Just thought I'd let you guys in on that thought process. I haven't made up my mind yet, or maybe I have! Who knows?

It's time for me to go make my shopping list for the week. I didn't do so well planning my meals last week, but I sure fooled Neil. It's fun to be creative with what you have...Neil always likes that, but it's exhausting for me to have to think that hard after a day of being a mom to two very active toddlers. So it's back to planning meals. For today, I'll slack off a little less than normal...in the spirit of light and airy. Good Day!

alrighty - i'll put my two cents in on the pampered chef business....you love it, you love the products....you love the people! so even though it can be hard moving a business if Cindy can move it across the Atlantic ocean then you can move it three states away :) And it would only give you reason to strike up conversation at a new church, new gym, new grocery store, etc. (like you need a reason to stike up conversation!) much love to you - this is the first time i have read any of your blogs.....how do you have time for this stuff??????
