What a day...

...that led me to drink. Seriously. After dinner tonight, I poured me a glass of Grey Goose (vodka) with cranberry juice and ice. I needed it. Why is it when our kids are sick we eat out of control?? Seriously, that was me today. Once lunch came, I was out of control. Mindlessly eating. He wouldn't shut up (I'm not complaining here, but a LITTLE peace and quite would have been nice!) and then he couldn't make up his mind. He wanted to watch a movie (Cars), then he didn't want to watch it 10 minutes later, then he wanted the Wiggles movie, couldn't find it so he settled for a Sesame Street movie, 10 minutes later he wanted to watch cartoons. ARGH!!!

Then lunch came...he wanted pizza. I made him some (Schwan's that I bought just for him and yes we do have the home delivery), he didn't want it, so I ate half of it. He wanted milk, no he wants Sprite, no he wants water. ARGH!!!!! I was pulling my hair out. Then we laid down to take a nap. 3 hours of peace, 1.5 of which I slept too. Then I woke him up at 7 (yes, that's P.M.) he wanted to eat, but he didn't eat. So I poured me a drink. And it was good. I relaxed a little outside. Gave him a bath and put him back in bed at 9. I SHOULD be there now, but I am not.

Seriously (like they say in Grey's Anatomy), I probably ate 100 points. I baked 2 cakes. One of which I couldn't stay out of the batter. Oh well. Dinner was good though. I don't even have in 96 ounces of water yet, but I will b/c I am dying of thirst now. I am going to track tomorrow and be OP tomorrow. We are leaving for my mom's for the weekend and the reunion tomorrow afternoon (yes, with sick kid in tow, should make for a fun 2.5 hours in the mini van!) and will be home at some point on Sunday. I am taking my camera and plan to have DH take some pictures of me all dolled up for the reunion. I have a new outfit and *I* think it looks pretty damn good! As long as it will button come Saturday! ;) LOL!! The one good thing about going to my mom's? I usually eat a lot of Subway and I can make healthy choices there and I almost always do.

I am out of here. Going to TRY to get some sleep and pray DS fever breaks. He's so clingy TO ME when he's sick. Could give a rats ass less about daddy right now. YAY for me! ;)

Sorry you're having a rough day- hope the little man perks up to normal soon! I know sick kids make it especially hard... throws everything off. Have fun at your moms!!

Seriously! I am the biggest Greys fan. It sounds like that drink was well deserved. I know how you feel I brought the neice to the cabin a couple weeks ago and she was sick and the only person she wanted was me. I couldn't please her though, she was crabby sick and I was on the verge of insanity!
Schwans is so good and very handy, the future father in law works for the headquarters so we are obligated to have home delivery (can be dangerous).
You are going to have a blast at the reunion and I can't wait to see pics. Good luck, relax and have a fun weekend!

Bless his little heart - I hope he gets to feeling better soon! (for his sake and yours!!)

I agree that you deserved that drink. At least you were nice and grown up about it and just didn't chug the vodka! ;o)I don't know that I wouldn't have after a day like you had.

I'm so excited for you and your reunion. You MUST post pix so we can see how hot you look! Have a safe, sane & fun trip!!

Thanks for the advice/comments about the "friend" ... I have come to realize it is an unhealthy friendship it is just hard to do something about it. I know there is jealousy with the weightloss since she has always been the "skinny" one and now we are pretty much the same...she no longer gets ALL of the looks and it makes her mad. Oh well, I am so glad I have the support from my other friends including you and the girls in the WW community!!

Love Grey's also! I understand the stress eating... believe me. At least you realize it - I swear that is the first step to starting over back OP.
Have a great road trip!

It is ok!! It happens to the best of us. Today is a new day (hopefully he feels better)
Schwan's has a 0 point Ice cream bar have you had them? They are the orange/lime ones I think
Good luck today!

Hope your boy gets to feeling better- I think you are DEFINITELY entitled to a drink or two when you've got a sick kidlet! And I agree, the cranberry definitely counts as fruit... Yah, definitely.

Everyone needs a little Goose now and again! Hope your lil one is feeling better :)

Melanie said...

Have a great trip! I have to say I totally agree with everyone else...that drink was well deserved. Hope your little one gets better soon!
