I survived!

I did it. Almost 3 days alone with my boys. WHEW!!!

Did I mention I was also taking care of my neighbors animals while they were on spring break? So on Friday and Saturday, I had the 2 boys, 3 dogs (1 which was mine), a cat and a turtle to take care of. Oh and the neighbors dogs were sick while they were gone so I was scrubbing poo out of their carpet too at least once a day Tuesday until Friday. Yeah, fun times.

Can you say EXHAUSTED?!?! Oh yeah, that was me. I decided Saturday that I wanted to go out for dinner with my boys since I hadn't sat down the entire time DH had been gone--I'd even ate my meals standing up! I did get workouts in both Friday and Saturday. By Sunday, I was toast and so sore so working out was not in the cards. I got the house cleaned and straightened up, laundry done AND I KEPT it that way until DH got home. How come it's easier in that regard when the man isn't around?!?! I was so happy to see him walk in the door Sunday afternoon. We went out to dinner at Steak N Shake (more on that in a minute) and then I got to go to the store--ALONE. DH also let me take a shower UNINTERRUPTED after he got home so we could go out to dinner. It's the little things like that...whew. I have to hand it to any single moms out there--I bow to you. And to those whose husbands travel a lot for work (diet coke and zingers comes to mind right now as does Miss July)--I don't know how you do it and work full time! But we made it and everyone is happy and has their limbs--weekend was a success!

So, we went to Steak 'N Shake for dinner--DH orders a Diet Vanilla Coke. I LOVE Diet Vanilla Coke. So, I took a sip.....and it was the NASTIEST thing I have ever had! Oh it was gross! How did I ever inhale that stuff when we would go to Steak N Shake?!?! It was just plain gross. Makes me so proud to have broken that habit...and it's a lot cheaper when we go out too! :)

Gotta get some work done...Have a great OP Monday!

Hey there! Sorry I've been so self-absorbed lately...thank you so much for the encouraging words about the surgery. And kudos to you for almost being at your pre-pregnancy weight! You are giving hope to those of us who have yet to experience it.... ;)

Hi Amanda, I hope you are having a great summer. I had a lovely Canada Day in emerg. after Ci sprained her foot. Good news - it's not broken. Sheesh. Hope you get to lie on a beach for days at a time. Cheers.
