This is the day that the Lord has made, I guess

This is the kind of day we've had

Snickerdoodle is cutting a molar and he's not taking it very well. He's been very distraught much of the day and prone to dramatic meltdowns. I gave in and let him have his pacifier and stuffed meerkat even though we usually just let him have them during naps and bedtime.
So I have a splitting headache and decided to send Snickerdoodle to bed an hour early. When TheOldMan gets home from job #2, we'll wake him up and give him a bath and some milk.
For now I'm going to sit and relax with my diet coke and boyscout kettle corn. Which, by the way, I've had atleast once a day for the last week. I'm hopelessly addicted.
That's all for now. I've got a lot of shows on Monday that need my undivided attention.

Oh by the way. Praise Jesus....I'm going to start babysitting in a few weeks. (Money yay!)

Best Money I Ever Spent

I no longer have to pay to go to weight watchers. That's right!
6 weeks ago I got to my goal weight. My BMI is no longer classified as overweight or obese (like it was.) It is classified as Healthy.
Today I received my Weight Watchers Lifetime membership.
As long as I stay at goal weight (or up to 2lbs over) I do not have to pay.

When I got pregnant with Snickerdoodle two years ago, I was at my highest weight. I was devestated and thought that I was doomed to be fat forever.
Weight Watchers has been so easy. Well, it's not easy but it's like childbirth; the outcome makes you forget how hard it was. I know myself and I know that if it was too hard and didn't work, I would have given up. I do not like to work hard.

If you need to lose weight, go to a meeting. It is worth the time and money.
