Extra Bags Anyone?

So, I was at my sister's house this weekend and I asked her if she had a plastic bag. She politely replied, "no, sorry, I don't."

Look at what they found literally 10 minutes after I asked for a bag.

We got a good laugh.

A Date with My Girls

Three peas in a pod

Ambria enjoyed the hot tub, but the crazy girl wanted to swim in the freezing cold water instead and screamed when I took her out. (I just dipped her in from the side that way I didn't have to get in the subzero temps-I am chicken). I'm not sure if she is my child if she enjoys the cold--give me a hot tub any day.

Mariah loving the warm water...although she did brave the colder water as well but I found her in the hot tub for most of the time. She is getting so big.

Breakfast Mishaps

Mariah has blueberry pancakes and orange juice for breakfast EVERY day and has for about six months now without missing a day.

Yesterday I almost poured orange juice on Mariah's blueberry pancakes instead of syrup.

Today I almost put the orange juice in the cupboard instead of the fridge.

But hey, the girls are fed, right? For a minute I thought I was starting to think more clearly...maybe not quite yet but it will get there.

Something Positive

The sun has been shining for a few days now.

There is still almost 2 feet of snow on the ground, but who cares if the sun is out--spring will have to arrive sooner or later.

A Salty Haze

Life is still a blur, even when my eyes aren't filled with tears.

Not Much to Say

I don't recommend this diet plan.

Two thumbs down.

Partial Conversation

Mom: Mariah, dad is going to be gone for a while
Mariah: Like, he will be home late tonight?
Mom: No, longer
Mariah: Like, late, late, late tonight?
Mom: No, longer
Mariah: Like 3000 years?
Mom: .....

The Truth Be Told

I'm hurting
I'm hurting inside
I'm hurting outside

I miss my best friend.

A Song for My Day

Give me oil in my lamp,
Keep me burning, burning, burning
Give me oil in my lamp I pray
Give me oil in my lamp,
Keep me burning, burning, burning
Keep me burning till the break of day

Improvement Needed

I need to do a better job.......

at being a role model for my children.....

I eat cookies and cake for breakfast and tell them they can't.

A New Year, a new me......maybe I will start tomorrow, but there are brownies, cookies, and muffins sitting on the counter. I'm not sure if anyone should hold me accountable to this.

PS: Does this have anything to do with the dream I had a few weeks ago of weighing 197 pounds?
