First, before I get into anything, I just wanted to say…
This button I created:
has been pinned more than 1000x on Pinterest!
(and in case you want to pin it too:
You know, because you wouldn’t want to be left out ) SO much has been going on!
First off, I have FINALLY been able to join all of my hipster friends and now I have an account on Instagram.
Now, it really wasn’t all my fault.
It was my stupid Droid.
(of course, it was me who decided to buy said Droid…)
And, speaking of Instagram…
Yesterday, my 4 oldest kids had a BIG track meet.
It was a BIG one because it was against our school’s rival and while all four of my kids were a bit nervous as they left for school in the morning, they all seemed confident that our school would win the meet.
Turns out, they were RIGHT!
I wasn’t able to do much more than show up at the track & drop off baked goods I made for the bake sale,
snap a quick picture of the track before the meet began,
and quickly wish the kids luck because I had to return to sick kids at home.
However, Steph did call me, mid-meet, screaming into the phone that she had done well and that their team was going to win.
(makes me sad that I have to miss moments like that)
I got them to stand together for a quick picture and then we were on our way home,
with them filling my ears with stories from the day And, well, speaking of sick…
Someone has been sick in our home for the past 2 weeks and LORD, it is exhausting.
It started with poor Nanny Deb catching a chest cold and then just slowly spread from one child to the next and then sadly back to Debbie right before she went home.
Right now, it’s my three youngest that haven’t been feeling well, which makes for three super cuddly, yet extremely sweaty, children who all want to fight for space next me 24/7.
(here’s hoping I manage to remain healthy, as I’m the only one who hasn’t caught this bug yet…) < knock on wood!As for me, what I have been doing, for the first time in years is losing weight!
I have hesitated even mentioning it for fear of jinxing myself, but so far, so good.
It’s slow going, but it is happening.
And, thankfully, I have a great bunch of friends who have all decided to do this diet together, so we’re not only keeping one another accountable, but we’re supporting one another and that is amazing.and, I almost had this amazing thing happen…
YEARS ago, I was approached by someone from MTV to do a show about my family and I turned it down because, well, it was MTV and we are a conservative Christian family and I could just imagine the “twist” they would’ve put on our story.
Of course, years later, when Russ cheated, I can not tell you how very thankful I was that we weren’t on TV surviving infidelity in front of everyone to judge us like Jon and Kate had to do. (that was painful to watch!)
Then, about 6 months ago I received an email from a producer from OWN to be on their show Unfaithful to discuss how Russ and I have survived infidelity.
I turned it down.
It’s one thing for me to go into my feelings here.
It’s quite another to go into all of the sordid details on a television show.
Thank you, but no.
All this brings me to the last few weeks…
I was approached again to be on a television show…
To lose weight.
I was going to be given a personal trainer, a nutritionist, and counseling.
It was going to be… wonderful.
A God send.
Alas, it was not meant to be.
I said yes, and the show was canceled.
(of course it was!)
if there are any producers out there reading, who want to help me lose weight, motivate me, help me with a little counseling…
I am ALL for it!
Please, reach out to me
