Ok Ok, so it is week 9. Good job to those of you who are staying strong. I was weak this past week. Well not the whole week, just since Sunday. I don't get how I can justify in my head that I need to lose weight, and that justification is happening as I stuff french fries in my pie hole. I actually started strong with exercise then started saying "Come on, it's your birthday. Come on, just one day." Problem was that was on Sunday, my birthday wasn't until Monday. So on Monday I started the day with the idea of getting back on track then said "Come on, today is your birthday. You can cheat today. Yesterday wasn't your birthday. Yesterday doesn't count." Honestly, I am surprised I didn't gain more but I am back on track today. Today is a new day. I am turning over a new leaf. Today I start anew.

4 of the girls on our soccer team were on the same team last year and they didn't win a single game. Continue on to this season where we have lost our first 3. BUT, miracle of miracles, we won yesterday 2-1. AND we remembered to take our camera! (complete sentences not needed)

Here is my newest project. Tug thought it would not fit, how he was wrong! Unfortunately I have run out of yarn. I think I will order just one more skein and make it a shirt instead of a dress. I don't like the colorway much but it was from the stash.

Seriously, week 8? Depressing.
Isn't it annoying when your scale won't cooperate? Aside from my little chew-n-spit cheat bites of Boo's birthday cake I have been good. This past week I have gone to different friends' homes and taken my own salad while avoiding the cakes and ice creams offered—yet the scale is a biotch. On different days during the week I have been up to 2 pounds less than I am today but I will go ahead and post today's weight since it happened, well, today. I guess I am going to have to start exercising ::gasp:: I KNOW!
This week: - 0.6
Michelle: - 1, getting back after it!
Marci: - 0.5 Good job.
Tug: - 0.5
Jessica: +1 Not too bad, considering.
Amy: ± 0. Good job mama!
Kimberly: -1.5. Such a motivator!
Laura: ±0 but still training for that half-marathon.
If I have left your name off it is not intentional—a lot of people have left comments saying they are going to participate but then never check back in. If you do want to participate please just leave a comment with the ± and I will add it to the list. Gracias.

You Are a Cashew
You are laid back, friendly, and easy going.
Compared to most people, you have a very mild temperament.
You blend in well. You're often the last person to get noticed.
But whenever you're gone, people seem to notice right away!

The Big 10 Network showed today's Scarlet & Gray game...fun, but what a little tease. Only 5 more months until the season starts :(

5. You can carry a mean tune, and carry on the family tradition of memorizing lyrics..."You get the best of both worlds"

Last night we went to an auction at St. Vincent de Paul (will post about that later) which made for a late night for the kids (thanks again Amy for babysitting) so we decided to go to our local church instead of where we normally attend. Neither Tug nor I like this church but it is close (where we normally go is 45 minutes away) so on days when we are tired or the girls don't have CCD we stay local. Now, they have an 8 o'clock and an 11 0'clock service. The 8 doesn't work so well if our intent is to sleep in but we don't like hanging out until the 11 so we often go to the 9:30 Spanish mass. We don't like this service either, especially when the celebrant has the choir lady say the homily...he seems to be able to get through the mass fine with his choppy Spanish but won't do the homily (is that even licit?)

What do you do when your 8 month old takes her army crawling to a new level? A level that leads from the living room to the hall? A level that returns her to the living room only to later find her in her older sister's, choke-hazard full room? Perhaps you get out your baby book and write down just how amazing the little tike is getting around. Or maybe you snap tons of pictures to put in her scrapbook! Well I send Daddy out ASAP to get something to keep her contained.

While watching the race today I learned that Chevrolet is donating money to Autism Speaks during the month of April—all you have to do is click here then click play. I don't know the specifics (ie: how much per video they will donate, cap on donations, etc) but the general details are: you watch a short video about the new Chevrolet Malibu then Chevy will make the donation—that's it, no registration, as a matter of fact you don't enter anything. Literally, click play and you're done!

No, not the alien kind, the unfinished object kind...I don't have much to write about (other than today is our first soccer game, since we didn't win a single game last year I suppose I should be happy that we can't get any worse) so I thought I would show you what I am working on. The pattern calls for 77 1/2 inches, only 70 more to go. Hopefully I will be done by Christmas!

As April Fool's jokes the girls have been hiding anything and everything from me. I overheard Boo say, sadly, "No one has played a joke on me today" so when my mom called I thought I would let her be the one to fool Boo. Boo's birthday is coming soon and she has been asking grandma for another American Girl doll so I told my mom to say that she wasn't going to be able to get one. Boo is on the phone listening to my mom when I see her eyes start to water. Then she has a full-fledged meltdown so my mom says "April Fool's". It took awhile for it to sink in so I got back on the phone with my mom who says she told Boo that "All the American Girl dolls are dead. They no longer make any of them." My mom felt very bad that Boo started crying and apparently started crying herself. She also got Sugar on the phone (her own idea this time) to say she wouldn't be able to make it to her First Communion—cue the tears again. I thought both were funny.
