Hmmm... I thought I popped on here yesterday. Guess now. Sorry!!

Interview went good...I THINK. I've been wrong before. Trying to not get my hopes up - but its kinda too late. It just seems perfect. Full time PERM positions, interesting job, good company, close to home, hours that work for me and Sara, pay is right. I just want and need it so bad. They are finishing up first round interviews this week and plan to do second interviews next week. Please pray I get a second interview.

Didn't sleep good last night. Not sure why. I feel like I was up a lot. And then my BF's alarm was going off at 5:00. Ugg...

No plans today. Nothing new or exciting. LOL

Morning. I'm so ready for Stella to start sleeping longer! She sleeps great but is still up to eat every 2-3 hours. I don't feel like I'm sleeping!

Nothing going on today. Ill see if Kyle wants to go to story time, if not I think we'll make a trip to target. And I'm going to run this evening as long as dh isn't home to late

Busy day at work today -- haven't had much time to check-in. My PM (Project Manager) goes on vacation next week so he's prepping me for all the things I said I'd cover for him.

I get baby time after work! I need to pick up Hailey from daycare and will have her for a couple hours until Andy picks her up. Yippee! I already called Jessie and told her to run the vacuum in the living room again. Hailey is crawling all over the place and it drives me nuts how much Jessie's pets (dog & a long-hair cat) shed. My dog doesn't shed at all!

Sorry you aren't feeling well stews

thanks. and now my Dad just asked if I want to have lunch after work with him tomorrow. His wife will be out of town with her sister and my dh is working so it will be just Dad and me. sure hope I feel better for it.


I just put some red potatoes in the oven to roast to go with dinner. don't think I'll eat much tonight, though.

Morning. Long night. Stella was up every 2 hours. Growth spurt maybe? I usually can get a good 3 from her.
Not a thing to do today and its chilly out. I need new sneakers so I might drag the kids with me. We'll see

She does stews thankfully. But I don't! It always takes me some time to fall back asleep so i end up running on only a few hours. When she gets up at like 5 or 6 she's becomes restless but I don't let her wake fully until at least 7

lol. Hope you get a good sleep soon, DP!! When my son was a baby he would sleep about 3 hours at a time. Then when my daughter was a month old she started sleeping all night. She would go to bed @7 and get up between 4 and 5. I'd nurse her and then dh would take her until I got up a little later.

Got our income tax money back yesterday so dd and I are going shopping today. Did a little bit yesterday too, but she wants to go to a few more stores today. Plus her birthday is next Monday. 17!!! Where has the time gone!! Don't know what to get her since I'm buying her all these clothes this week. Might just get her something small. Just have NO idea what to get.

Have a great night!

My son slept 5 or six hours a time from like 2 or 3 weeks old. It seems Stella is going backwards! I'm trying to regulate her naps a little but it doesn't seem to matter and then she is just cranky! She is waking up hungry and if I feed her anymore she gets sick

17! Wow! What about a gift certificate for a manicure?

Both kids are napping so I'm going to rest as well.

Uggg... Sara was such a good baby. Even when she was a newborn, she really only got up once during the night to eat. I probably shouldn't brag huh? I hope she starts sleeping good soon!

I still have 6lbs until I'm back to what I was a year ago. I'm drying here. So I know how you feel. I have that darn bracelet just WAITING for me!! LOL

How are you feeling?

So......... I was pretty much offered a job today, but it is too long of a commute. I'd never make it there in time in the morning or home in the evening. So I turned it down.

BUT, I have a second interview at that place on Monday morning!!!!!!

Amy, I'm sorry the job was too far but Good luck on the 2nd interview! I'm crossing everything I got and praying this is the one!

I'm okay, not great but I got through okay. had lunch with Dad and ended up with pain in my lower left abdomen. fun. I relaxed for awhile and then made myself get my weight workout in. (I was actually hoping that the moving would help, sometimes things work that way, lol). anyway, I think its eased up some so we'll see how the evening goes, I guess. I'm eating my post workout meal now...lucky charms

DP, I'm nervous too. I'm doing everything right but the scale doesn't want to show me the low I had from last week right now, BOOOOOO! I'm hoping to hit a new low before Monday. I see my massage therapist and I KNOW she's going to ask how much I've lost since the last appointment. (It's not as weird as it sounds. We've talked a lot about diet/exercise so it fits with our relationship. She told me she doesn't usually comment on clients weight loss because its kind of awkward but she said she HAD to say something to me because she couldn't believe how different I looked in 3 weeks. I'm glad she did ).

Well, I hope you ladies have better luck with the scale than I did. It says that I gained a pound. There is NO way since Tuesday that I gained a pound. NO WAY! I'm planning on drinking water today and being extra careful and reweighing tomorrow.

I'm NEVER going to get that darn bracelet!

Sara has half a day today...and then we have a busy evening. So may not be around too much. In addition to those reasons...I'm so tired. So I'm gonna have a lazy day and go lay in bed and snooze a little after Sara is on the bus.

Well I'm down a little from the other day. 3.5 pounds in 3 weeks. It's good but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the slower losses. I do think ill lose a little better now that im home and working out again.

Another super long night with Stella. Going to try a bottle at her first wake up tonight and pray it holds her at least 3 hours. And that she falls back asleep easily.

Kyle goes to daycare today so me and Stella are going for a run and then I'm relaxing too.

No one checked in yesterday I'm so sad

Morning. Cold one here but me and Stella are going to bundle up and run while dh takes Kyle to bowling. We are taking the kids to meet the Easter bunny this weekend. Stella is going to hate it

Doing good and on plan though a little discouraged with my weight the last few days. I'm so heavy for me and I hate it. I want to be in my smaller clothes now

thanks. I think I'm going to go to urgent care. hope we don't have to wait long.

this maybe would get better on its own but dh is on graveyard tonight and tomorrow and if something happens and I end up really bad he's not even here to get me to the ER if necessary. plus, I try to avoid the ER if I can.
