Day from HELL!

First thing this morning I went to throw out yesterday's junk mail and noticed a letter tucked inside a flyer that I had missed. I open it up and it is for my hubby telling him if he does not pay the fine (for a ticket I didn't even know he had gotten) within the next few days he license would be suspended. Great, more money we don't have. So I call him up and tell him. I've already got a pounding headache from sinus congestion and my ear is filled with fluid and making me dizzy. But I take Christopher to school anyway. While he is there I decide to have the car I bought a month ago inspected. I haven't had the time or money to do this yet. I had a little money left from babysitting so I use that. Well guess what...the car, that I've had for a whole month, does not pass inspection. It needs 4 tires and the fog light and plate light fixed. Even more money...wonderful. Hubby is busting his ass working overtime so we can catch up on our bills and it just seems so pointless. Every time I think we may have a chance more shit comes up. And just to top it off (it's only 2:30 in the afternoon) The Ferocious Beast (aka Christopher) decided to take a poop in his pullup then go into the bathroom to change himself. I'll spare you the gory details but I will say he (and my walls) needed to be "hosed" off. I'm almost afraid to ask..."what next?"

This week went FAST!

What a crazy, busy week. We had t-ball practice monday, baseball practice tuesday and dance and a baseball game wednesday. Tonight is Brownies. Monday and Tuesday I also had one of my Brownie girls here for the night that I will now be babysitting a few days a week.
I've been eating a little more than before. I've been having Uncle Sam's cereal for breakfast. It is high protein and less than 1 gram of sugar, tastes pretty good too. This coming Sunday we are going to my aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary party. We'll see how I do at the restaurant.
Time to get the kids ready for school.

hump day

I'm feeling pretty worn out today. Yesterday I did a bunch of cleaning and today I just don't feel like doing much of anything. I'm hoping all my blood levels (protein, vitamins and iron) are ok. I go for blood work next week and will find out then. I'm upset too because Monday we woke up to the alarm on our septic going off. We have to replace the pump, but can't do anything about it until hubby gets paid friday. And he's been gone working overtime since Monday afternoon so I'm paranoid something is going to happen with the septic before he gets back. I'm off to get the older 2 from the bus, then take The Girl to dance class.

Another Monday

I'm down another 2 lbs this week. Total of 28#. I decided to try to do my TaeBo dvd this morning. It's the first attempt at it since the surgery. I got through 30 min of the 45 min dvd then started to feel light headed so I got some water and quit. Will try again tomorrow. I forgot how much TaeBo kicks my ass when I'm not in shape! I definitely need to start doing some crunches. My belly is getting saggy already.
The Ferocious Beast (aka Christopher) went back to school today after a 2 week break. He was really looking forward to seeing his teachers and the other kids. He came home tired but is refusing to take a nap, so I'm sure by the time we are done with The Girl's t-ball practice he will be a total beast.

It has been a long and busy week. But what else is new. A lot of running around with the kids. One day I went into my 8 yo class to help out. Today we had an ice cream social with our Brownie troop and another. The girls had tons of fun. I didn't even feel like I was missing anything not having ice cream. And anyone who knows me knows that before surgery ice cream was *my thing*! I could eat a pint a night if I really let myself. I didn't even want it today. I've actually been having a hard time remembering to eat. I'm not really hungry much anymore. I have to keep reminding myself to get food. I even made up a schedule and posted it on the fridge with meal times and when to take my vitamins and meds.
Tomorrow my oldest starts baseball practice, then Monday my 6 yo starts her t-ball practice. And they'll be even more running around to do! I was asked to be team mom for my 8 year olds team so I said I would. Just one more thing to do! Tonight my daughter has a friend here that will be sleeping over. So, I'm sure we'll be up late. I hope I get some sleep tonight!
