I've lost my mojo. It may take a list to get me going again.
1) I reached my goal weight and got a little gold star charm at WW. I really should have it put on the charm bracelet that I'm holding onto for Annabeth. Look, baby! This is when Mommy lost all the weight you put on her body! I'd also like to show it to my OB who encouraged me to have fun and eat more during the last month of my pregnancy.
2) We had a great Mother's Day weekend. We had lots of time with fun friends on Friday and Saturday. I was going to take the kids to the pool but the weather cooled off and I thought better of it. Hopefully this weekend it will be nice enough to go. On Sunday we went to church and then had brunch at a hotel with my parents and grandparents.
While I was waiting for my omelet to be made, four boys came running up to the bread display right next to me. They grabbed as many hard rolls as they could fit in their arms. I didn't want to be that mom who got onto someone else's kids, but in hindsight a gentle, "Does your mommy know you're getting that many rolls?" might have gone a long way. The boys ran over to the extensive koi ponds in the hotel and started chucking the rolls into the water. There were about ten of them floating on top. Employees started rushing over to stop the boys and then they had to get on their hands and knees and fish them out. I don't know if they ever spoke to their parents. I was trying to mind my own business, but there was that really self-righteous part of me that wanted to see them get in big trouble. Who lets their boys run around a large brunch buffet at a nice hotel? Really, people?
My mom took Tuesday off, so Annabeth and I spent the day with her. We went to the Galleria to find some specific things we need for our Israel trip. We both bought some hideous sandals that will be good for walking in. I'm trying to break them in, so if you see me out and about in them, please don't hate. Later we went to pick up Jackson from school and then took the kids to get frozen yogurt. I always get strawberries, blueberries, and a few chocolate chips in vanilla. I sampled the "tart" flavor one time and it was horrendous. I couldn't shake the feeling that I'd eaten sour milk. GROSS!
Today we've just been hanging out at home. Annabeth has had a very upset stomach for two days and has dropped her second nap. Jackson is driving me up the walls. He has plenty to do outside but he doesn't want to do it alone. So Annabeth and I went out there and sat on the hammock they got me for Mother's Day. (I've always wanted one!) My hope was that he would swing or jump on the trampoline and get some energy out, but he just wanted to sit in the hammock with us. I finally gave in. I was laying in such a way to balance us, Annabeth was resting with her head on my chest, and Jackson was flopping and twisting around like a fish that my dad caught and dropped in the bottom of the boat. It didn't quite work. There was a really nice breeze though.
I just realized that my list turned into something else. I'm going to leave it like this - two points and a million paragraphs - because it's awesome. Well, I am about 57 minutes past my tea time, so I shall go and render myself caffeinated. Adios.
