Aidan, today you turn 9 years old. It seems like just yesterday I was in the hospital and confused as to why Raggedy Anne was messing with my IV. I had no idea it was Halloween. I had been in labor for 24 hours and was a bit delirious by this time. One emergency cesarean section later, and you were here.
I really don’t know where the time has gone. You have turned into a wonderful little boy. You are kind, loving and sensitive. You still love to cuddle with me, and I know that those days will soon come to an end, so I cherish every snuggle. I hope this year brings you nothing but good things. I love you, Little Man.
One of my favorite all time movies is When Harry Met Sally. I can pretty much quote the entire thing from start to finish. It’s safe to say I’ve seen it a few times.
One of the results of my recent weight lossis that my underwear is now too big. So this past weekend I bought some new underwear. I have a certain brand that I like and I just grabbed a package without paying any attention to the design. I grabbed a new pair today and it wasn’t until a trip to the bathroom that I noticed that these are day-of-the-week underwear. And just like in When Harry Met Sally, there are no Sunday underwear. Because of God. Obviously.
Three years ago today, The Man and I decided to commit to a budding romance and see where it led. I don’t think either one of us thought we’d be here, together and happy, three years later. I’m happy to say, though, that we are. These past three years have been the happiest and most fulfilling of my life. My life would be much less fun and interesting without you in it. We aren’t perfect, but I believe with all my heart that we are perfect for each other. I look forward to spending many, many more happy years with you. I love you.
He's definitely a keeper! I'm the envy of every woman in the office today.
Week 5 on Nutrisystem has come and gone. I lost 1 pound this week. That isn’t so bad considering I went to the Epcot food and wine festival on Saturday, and we had Carrabbas as well. I know slow and steady is the way to lose weight and that I’m most likely not to regain the weight lost this way, but I’m an instant gratification kinda gal. This one or two pounds a week is great, but I want to snap my fingers and be at my goal weight. I know, I know, it doesn’t work that way. So I keep plugging on. I have about 3 weeks of Nutrisystem food left, and then I’m on my own. I think I already have the portion control part pretty well handled. I just need to find new vegetables and new ways to prepare vegetables. I’m so over salad. Pickled beets are my go-to veggie this week. I had forgotten how much I like them. For now, it’s keeping the boredom with food at bay.
Total lost since starting Nutrisystem is 13 pounds and total lost since July is 19. I’m really happy with these results, and I’m going to have to go shopping soon. My underwear keeps falling down!
