Update in a list...

  • Potty training is going well! M&Ms were the key! Or that and Owen being a little more ready. But the M&Ms have taken away his resistance. He is his mommy's son!
  • One of my favorite friends was diagnosed with leukemia a few weeks ago. She is currently in the ICU battling an infection. Please keep her in your prayers.
  • Spring is finally here! Today is a rainy day but that means the grass will be greening up nicely this week.
  • We are busy planning Owen's third birthday. It will have a superhero theme. And I mean superhero in a general way since he doesn't really know who the superheros are. Except Buzz Light Year. I'm going to make him a cape! He likes to be Super Owen!
  • My MIL is coming to visit this week. Arrives Thursday and leaves Monday. I've got cleaning to do.
  • We only have 2 weeks of toddler class left. This makes me a little sad. We both look forward to class each week.
  • I gave up running. I like to run but my body (or mind) isn't ready for it right now.
  • I'm a slacker when it comes to Weight Watchers. I just can't seem to stay on track. This makes me mad. I should be able to do this. But I have so little confidence in my ability to do it. And I really love chocolate. And cheeseburgers. And potatoes of all kinds. I am not good at moderation.
  • My creativity has been waning lately. Although on Saturday I made some cute onesies for one of our pastor's son's. I have one left to finish.
  • We are starting to plan for some of our spring/summer house projects. We lost a lot of equity in the house and weren't able to refinance and take any money out so we are going to have to be creative. Thank goodness for an uncle who is a contractor and his handyman friend, who are both reliable and trustworthy. And for a neighbor who is great at tiling and likes to do it and has offered to help us!
  • Owen has been playing outside a lot with friends. The last couple of months he has turned that corner where he is learning to and likes to play with other children. It's fun to watch. He is also developing his language skills something fierce!
  • I have to find something pretty to wear for an event this Friday. I hate spending money on new clothes to fit my wide waist and butt. And being short makes it difficult to find something that looks decent. Wide and short makes it most difficult!
  • We had a great Easter. Owen was so fun to watch finding his Easter eggs outside that the Easter Bunny left. Everytime he found one he said "Oh! Look!" or something cute and surprising! I wish I'd video recorded it rather than pictures. They just don't convey the wonder and joy.

Hi Heather. I've been wondering how you're doing. It's spring here too and I'm so tired of the rain. But my grass is super green! I"m sorry to hear about your friend. Don't give up on running or WW! You can do it. One step at a time and try not to be so hard on yourself.

Have a great day!
