Well Nick has duty (every three days, have I mentioned that lately?) so we're on our own over here, which means I'm playing on the computer in an effort of avoid working out. I'm also trying to avoid finishing off the cupcakes and apple pie from last night, but the computer isn't helping with that as much as you'd think. Lemme just tell you that I had two cupcakes for breakfast, then sat down to watch A Christmas Story with Ava and continued to fall asleep. Now, I KNOW that eating crap makes me feel crappy. I know this! So why, when I'm unwrapping that cupcake, can't I just REMEMBER it? I mean, is my willpower THAT weak? At my appt last week, when I was up four more pounds, the lady was all "keep exercising and try to remember portion control!" I almost punched her in the face. I'm tired of exercising and portion control! I'm just sick of it! I'm at one ninety six and I have five weeks left! So even if I COULD keep it to a pound a week (which I most certainly CANNOT) I'll still make it over two hundred before delivery. Again. Ugh.
Wow. I didn't start this off as a rant! Guess I needed to get that out. And I do plan on working out, Angela talked me into it. She's my motivational speaker. Don't want to end up having to order a XXXL when I get my new pajama pants. They fit all shapes and sizes you know :)
So here's some random pics from the after Christmas high yesterday. This first one is Ava's foot. Those are some bling that came in this decorate-your-own-mirror-kit. That would be MIRROR, but apparently she thought it said FOOT. Actually, now that I think about it, last time I got a pedicure, I got a little flower on my big toe, with a tiny green bling in the middle. So she probably wanted that. Poor baby, I gotta take her with me to get one sometime this week. Nick, if you're reading this, make it happen.
These are of the kids' table at our Christmas dinner last night. That's Will in the orange, I don't know where Lee is. We had Jen and Mike with their two, Will and Chris, and Brandi and Harley with Lee and Easton. I LOVE putting the leaves in my table! It's like the table from Batman, remember that?
My sweet boy after he got a cupcake. He's lucky he didn't lose a finger, you gotta fight to get a cupcake when Mama is around.
And my other sweet boy when I asked him to take a picture for me. Sigh.
This is Scott (obviously) playing with his Daddy and his new playdough. Want in on a little secret? The DADDY part of this was more fun than the PLAYDOUGH part.
And Warren, playing with the trains. He ended up awake for the beginning of the big kids' nap, so he had them all to himself. Which is a lot more fun for him :) And these aren't some of his new Christmas toys, these are just the good old fashioned trains we've had for years. Naturally. Sill a super cute collage though, right?
All right, seriously, I'm going to work out. After I have that last piece of pie. Might as well just get it over with, remove the temptation. That makes sense, right? RIGHT?!?!?
