Why is Ellie still sick?

This just isnt letting up! The poor thing looks terrible. Today she has just been miserable.I have never seen her like this-she is the happiest kid and today she has just crumbled under the tiniest thing.She has hardly eaten for a week,it just worries me!

The worst part is I cannot get motivated with her like this.There is just something about a sick baby that just makes you want to do nothing but cuddle them.Thats pretty much all I have done for days.

The flu is ridiculous! So is snow!

It has gone through 4 of out 6 of the kids so far.It is lasting a week and as a result confining me to the house.I keep feeling like I might be getting it,but then I feel better again.SO annoying.

We got snow on Sunday-so pretty but kept the kids out of school for 2 days.Yet another reason to confine me to the house.

On a brighter note-I lost a pound this week! Hallelujah!

Ok,I am on the downhill stretch to 40.I turn that dreaded number in November.I am about 30 pounds overweight.(WOW-I just put that out there.Ouch)

Two summers ago I did the South Beach diet and lost 25 pounds.Well,alot has happened since then and I have gained it all back.I started back on it a week ago and I have lost 3 ounces.The last time I lost 5 pounds in a week! I dont know what I am doing wrong!  Is because I am closer to 40? My body is different now.I dont know.UUUUUGH....I just don't want to get myself down and fall off the wagon.I feel so much better.More energy,less bellyaches,etc.I need to stick with this! Encourage me people!

Guilty Pleasures....

Ok,admit it,everyone has something they LOVE that might just embarass them a little bit.I have a few.I thought maybe I would share a few of them with my multitude of readers...(ha ha ha)

Guilty Pleasure #1-That honor goes to Mr Drake Bell. I never missed an episode of Drake and Josh on Nickelodeon,because it was so darn funny.Soon after I discovered Drake Bell is a musician.He isn't too bad of one either! He has a page on Facebook-Drake Bell. He isnt very mainstream in the US,but he is very popular overseas and in Mexico.His music is kinda cheesy and silly and I love it.It makes it nice that Ellie loves it too,so I dont feel so silly when I crank it in the car.

Guilty Pleasure #2-Yo Gabba Gabba.I LOVE this show.I watch it with the kids.It is so wild and wacky and funny.I get told regularly that I am nuts about this one.I dont care though,DJ Lance rocks my socks!

Ok-one more for today-since I can't really think of anymore right now.Remember the old days of Blue's Clue's? Remember Steve,the COOL host? Well I adore him....I couldnt even watch Blue's Clues anymore when he left.It was ridiculous.He even has his own band! Here is a link to some info on him. Steve Burns

So anyway-Share yours with me.Im sure you can top me.Maybe....

Gentle Reminders...

Last night I was reminded that I haven't blogged in a very long time.I knew I had let it go by the wayside-but I didn't realize how long! 2009 was a YEAR ago! LOL

So,lets has been crazy.Ellie is THREE now.She is the cutest,sassiest,infuriating child in the world.She is potty training,which is wonderful.She recently got glasses due to a slight lazy eye problem and it is just ADORABLE. She is just so big and knowing she is my last baby makes it so sad for me.I keep teasing Chris about overseas adoption but he isn't going for it! lol

The other kids are doing great too! Jude finally potty trained a month after he started kindergarten,LOL.... ( for a reminder of my issues with this you can visit this post ) He isnt doing well in school though-its like he has become his teachers arch-nemisis! It makes me sad b/c I know he can do so much better-but we are working on a solution so these problems dont persist in 1st grade.

As for me,I just celebrated my 15 yr wedding anniversary with my wonderful Chris.I adore that man for putting up with me for all this time. I got 3 tattoos (pics on this post) and gained all the weight back I lost last summer.Im working on that now....and Im going to chronicle that to some degree on this blog. I dont want to bore people TOO much! When the first 20 pounds is gone Im getting a new tattoo and I want my nose pierced too....who knows if the latter will happen though.

So I leave you with the photos of my ink. The pictures were done by my dear friend Mindy Cooper..she is a babe.
