Rough week

I have been so busy that I barely have time to think, much less write. May is nuts around here. We have The Girl's usual dance, gymnastics and Brownies and then baseball starts. The older 2 both do baseball and between practices and games it takes up alot of our time.
Yesterday was my oldest's class trip. I went with the class to a nearby small zoo. It was chilly out and there were rain showers on and off but the kids had lots of fun.
Yesterday the scale was up 1 lb but I think that's just because I'm PMSing. So I'm hoping for a nice loss next week. I'm down to a size 12/14 clothes which makes me very happy.
Here are some pics from yesterday's trip:

Feeling better now

I decided I'd had it with the car. Between all the problems and the 3 kids all together in the back seat fighting constantly I couldn't take it anymore. Yesterday I went to the local dealer and traded it in. I got a 2007 Dodge Caravan. I feel so much better now!

As of yesterday morning I'm down a total of 38 pounds since surgery!

I am so frustrated and tired of feeling defeated. I went to get my car (that I bought only 1 month ago) inspected last week and it failed. It needs 4 new tires and because I live in PA and bought the car in NY the dealer doesn't have to fix it. So hubby and I went yesterday to see if we could at least get used tires so it wouldn't cost $400 or $500, and my tires are an odd size an no one has them used. While we were out driving yesterday the car started overheating and we discover that the antifreeze is leaking in 2 places. I'm so done with this car. Now we're looking to trade it in and get a new car at a local dealer which we really didn't want to do because we really don't want 2 car loans. But it looks like I have no other choice.
And just to add to my lovely week we got lots of rain the other day and the skylight in my bathroom is leaking really bad. DH has fixed this twice before but it doesn't hold. So I had to call a contractor to come look at it today and he will be calling us back with an estimate to fix it. I'm not sure where all this money is coming from...hopefully some starts falling from the sky soon. I can't take much more of this.
The good news is I didn't turn to junk food when I was feeling down this week. That's a major improvement for me.
