Time for bullet points

  • My back feels better. It’s not 100% but it’s not as painful as it was.
  • I have been putting on weight lately. I could see it and feel it but I guess I was in denial until I got on the scale the other day at the doctor. It isn’t a crazy amount of weight but I’m not happy with it. I’m also going to take full responsibility. Today I ate a cookie for breakfast. Then I ate three burritos for lunch. I had a snickers bar and a bag of skittles a few minutes ago. My dinner will be salsa and chips. I don’t know how many chips it will be but my salsa recipe makes about a cup and I intend to eat it all. I need to do something about this, but not today. Dammit, I love food. I can’t help it.
  • I’m pretty sure the weight gain is also related to Perrin nursing less. I eat as much as I ever was but the calorie drain isn’t as great. If I had to guess, I’d say he uses about 2-4 ounces a day now. I still have milk, but he’ll take a few drinks, then ask for a cup of something. Our days are numbered and I really need to adjust my food intake accordingly.
  • My two middle kids got into some legal trouble Sunday night. Just before their birthday party, they broke out the security cameras in the park shelter. The cop decided to let it go since we agreed to pay for damages and just asked us to have them do some community service projects around town. One of those was cleaning the grass out of the cracks in the sidewalks. They did some of that yesterday. Today, they washed the tables in the shelter, swept the floor, and cleaned the bathroom. I have also been working them hard at home. We’re taking away an hour of work for every dollar it’s going to cost us for the damages. They’re also trying to do odd jobs for other people for money to help make up the difference. Tomorrow, they’re cleaning my mom’s gutters.
  • I am pretty sure that in addition to this stress, I have the beginnings of pms. I just can’t deal with any whining from them. This morning, I threw a fit over toothbrushes. Of course, it doesn’t help that they lied to me about them. I’m really sick of lying. I do feel dumb making an issue out of toothbrushes but it’s the principle.
  • Thanks to the big kids, Perrin’s singing Justin Beiber. I’m not pleased.
  • Tomorrow is Perrin’s pre-op appointment for his adenoid removal. Louie picked up overtime for tonight so he’s going to be a joy to be around tomorrow when he’s had 4 hours’ sleep. Oh well. I guess I can like him again the next day.
