Proud Loser

Yup, you read it right...I am a very PROUD loser! I started Weight Watchers last Wednesday and weighed in this morning to find that I lost 6 pounds!!! As you can see, I am VERY excited. I am so glad that I started the diet. I am doing the Flex Plan version and can eat anything I want, as long as I stay within my points for the day. Then, I get an extra 35 points to play with for the week. I used 10 of those points last weekend at my Uncle Tom and Aunt Carol's to enjoy a Margarita. I look forward to weighing in next Wednesday to see how much more I lose. My goal is to 30 lbs. Now I only have 24 more to go :)

Mi Bambima esta enferma!

My poor baby girl, she went to the pediatrician today and was diagnosed with a right ear infection. I made her an appointment due to a cough that she has and it ends up being her ear. I had no idea. Both my kids must be very pain tolerant which means they do NOT take after their Mother in that department. I HATE pain and even the slightest bit makes me complain. David has had 2 ear infections and neither time did he complain and according to the doctor that checked his ears, they were BAD. Ava was a bit crankier than normal, but nothing horrible. She still gave us big smiles and slept through the night. I heard her fuss twice in the middle of the night, so I put her bink back in, but she never really woke up. I can't wait to go home and cuddle her up to make her feel better.

Present Report

I received a beautiful diamond heart necklace from Steve & David and Ava gave me a onzie that reads "My Heart Belongs to Mommy". I love them both very much. I took pictures of my gorgeous necklace, so I'll post them later.

We ordered chinese from Sunny Palace and it was a VERY quiet night. David did not feel good at all, so he slept. Steve worked a very long day, so he fell asleep and I needed to get some work done, so I got Ava to go to sleep.

Steve and I plan on going to the movies to see Hannibal Rising and grabbing dinner one night soon.

Hope you all had a nice V'Day!

Happy V'Day!

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day! With the weather here in NJ, it's the perfect day to cuddle up with the one(s) you love. I gave David his little red bag filled with treats before I left this morning. Poor kid is sick with another ear infection. Unfortunately, he got that from me. I am the Ear Infection Queen! His treats were: skittles, marshmellow filled chocolate heart, fun-dip, stuffed animated dog and Go Diego Go video. Ava, Steve and my parents will get their stuff when I get home. I am looking forward to my gift :) Steve picked it out all on his own without any hints from me! This way I can be totally surprised. We're going to order chinese food from Sunny Palace for dinner and I'll pick up a dessert on y way home from work. Not quite a typical Valentine's Day, but spending it with the kids and Steve makes it even better!

Check back to see what I got...

Back to the old grind

Believe it or not, the day has come for me to return to work! Yes, today is my first day back. It was HARD to get up and out of bed, but I did it. It was even harder to kiss the kids good-bye. I know, thanks to my mother, that they are in great hands, but I miss them. So much goes on during the 10 hours I am away from them and I feel that I miss so much. Instead of it getting easier, I know from experience - it's only going to get harder. Ava will say her first words, take her first step, get her first tooth, etc. all while I am at work. The same things happened with David. I felt it then and I have heartache knowing it will hurt again. I truly wish there was some way to make money and be with them. It's just not practical. However, I am going to try my best to build up my Creative Memories business this year. You never know! I could be one of those ladies making the big bucks doing something I love.

Overall this day was not terrible. I got to see some people that I missed and catch up. Hopefully tomorrow I will meet my new boss and things will get rolling. There are a lot of new things in my department to get caught up with. BUT, I can't wait to get home to the kids! I hope they missed me as much as I missed them!

P.S. Here are some pix that I had taken Friday at Kiddie Kandids.
