(This is my baby, and if you can believe it, this is a 4T Old Navy Dress that has never been washed. And I know it doesn't look it, because I am standing above her, but it IS t-length, not too long. Yes. She is huge)
I look around my kitchen table at dinner and I am happy that every single face is there. Most people call it, "MY! You have your hands full" But, I call it perfect.
2- Someone asked me if I have ever watched "Parenthood" , a show that started last year on NBC. Regular old show about a family (extended) who have a son with Autism. I hadn't watched it. I set a timer on my DVR for it so I could catch some episodes when it came on. It recorded three yesterday. I watched them at super lightening speed (I love skipping commercials!) and I have to say. . . It is a good show. Well written. Pretty true to form with Autism, except Jaxon has different "issues", but impacts our life about the same way. And Peter is TOTALLY the Dad (Adam) and I am a lot like Kristina, except for more "fun" and probably more "manic". I sat there watching it and thought, "Why am I watching this? I live this EVERY DAY" (except for the daughter sleeping around et.al.) So, I can't say that I will add it to my permanent DVR list, but, if I didn't have so many previous obligations, I might. Which reminds me, I might have to do an additional Fall Line-Up Post. Comment if there is a show you want me to review!
3- I hired a trainer. For a few sessions anyway. I felt like my work outs weren't. . . working. I could have to do with the fact that I was on the road for 3 weeks during the summer and never hit the gym while the kids were out of school for 7 weeks. Okay, maybe I hit it a 'few' times but not enough, and well, whatever I had lost, found me again. But anyway, we talked about my "habits" and I told her that I always go for the 3 p.m. sugar binge (and 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.) and she said, "Well, if you don't have that stuff in the house, you won't be tempted to eat it!" I was like. . . um. . . "That isn't really my problem, MY problem is, I like to bake. So, it doesn't matter if I buy it or don't buy it. The problem is. . . I LIKE TO MAKE IT." And so, she told me what any good trainer would say, "THEN GIVE IT AWAY" So, I would like a list of people to give baked goods to at any moment in time. And if you would like to be on that list, please let me know.
Hopefully, my hips will thank you.
