i was about thiscloseto taking a picture of the dishes i washed the other day.
a few pans ... a few glasses ...
and a hugesassload of medicinal droppers and syringes and measuring cups. it was very telling of the last few weeks.
i think to date we've had 4 ear infections, two bouts of a stomach bug and a four-day course of a 103 degree fever. that fever quickly became a 105 degree fever ... in my littlest ... and we ended up having to get an injected antibiotic because she was too sick to keep anything down ... and it looked like we were battling strep throat. all in all ... breathing treatments, steriods, 5 types of antibiotic, advil and motrin, wine and beer ...
blah blah blah ... girls are sick ... blah blah blah ... typically ol' mommy blog complaints ... blah blah blah ... sick of it yet?
and i guess what i'm really here to say on monday morning ...
is casey (the definitively fearless leader) over at hasay (a group of bloggers trying to lose weight) ... gave us a kick in the ass this morning. she said (in better words than mine) ... stop the excuses ... get on board ... or go.
and casey? i'm here.
today ... it's pathetic ... another 2 pounds ... in the last two weeks.
but i'm ready for more.
and i'm going to do it this time. no excuses.
by the way ... the no pop thing ... i did it. i urge you to do it too.
(and casey ... if you are ever interested ... i know the internal motivation is the best ... right? but i'm wondering if we could do some problem solving to figure out some external motivation ... i'd love to help you?)
