This week has allowed many thoughts to roam through my unstressed brain. Christmas is over and I dont have a gazillion things to do every day. I also dont have to stress about how much it is all going to cost because the debt is done. Now we deal with it.

It was nice to have time to relax.

Especially because the boys were at their Grandma's for three days.


It was just hubby, daughter and myself for three days. It kinda felt like it did 8 years ago when we were parents of one child. The funny thing was I thought it was so difficult and draining at the time.

It was a vacation.

*The new Bachelor is a dork. Thats all.

*I am now one of those people who belong to a weight loss center. But I will be a success...you just wait and see. For the next 4 months I will be eating healthy.
I will lose 30lbs.

No chocolate. No pop. No milk. No chocolate.

No chocolate.

But it is worth it if I can fit into summer clothing and not have to worry about my rolls.

*The sign of a good dog-mother is when you clean your dog's bum after he has a messy poop. Enough said.

*Pure happiness is when your unaffectionate son gives you a hug and kiss without you begging for one.

*Blogger and I are having some issues lately as it has decided not to save my draft posts. I am giving Blogger the silent treatment for awhile because thats how I deal with things when I am angry

I need to work on that
Add that one to my list of resolutions
By the end of this year, I may just be a completely different person
Without rolls

Love your post today. I guess I am a good dog mom too. Have done that many times and worse...lol. We used to have an American Bulldog who like to eat the stuffing out of her toys. Must be how rope is made...lol. Because I got the joy of pulling that rope if you get my drift. NOT fun. Good luck with your goals.

You are my hero for the "no chocolate" part. I just can't do it. But, you'll have less rolls than me in the end! : )

Good luck with the diet - you can do it! I need to follow your lead and eliminate soda.

Been there on the dog butt-wiping mode...we are good dog-mommy's, aren't we? Either that or insane.

I am Harriet said...

Enjoy your time off.

Have a great Random Tuesday.

All chocolate? Even dark chocolate in tiny amounts?

I agree that when you have only a few kids, or one, it seems like a big deal but then if a few of those kids are not around and you have one or two, or only three, it seems like a little vacation.

It's nice to be able to regroup. I love that about January!

EVERYONE is talking Bachelor and I missed it. I even had a reminder text before it started and wrote it off assuming it was being DVR'd. Not sure how I feel about it yet.

blueviolet said...

Oh man, losing the chocolate is the worst!!! I take that back. Losing pop is the worst!

Momlissa said...

lol at vacation with one child. Also, in total agreement about the Bachelor. He is so sickeningly wholesome, I almost can't watch! (but yet I do)

You wipe your dog's butt? That is what scooting on the grass is for ... or husbands.

Good luck with the weight loss... I'm working on it too.
