I'm here to tease and complain...

Yes....the title says it all...I'm here to in act coy and secretive since I didn't do a Fat Tuesday Weigh In this week...instead tomorrow I'm doing my 6 month photos/weigh in etc...probably measurements too.


I had to step on the scale yesterday anyhow...I was not displeased...

But thats ALL I'm letting you know about that.

Such a tease.

And now for the complaints....

Yeah yeah...thats the line I'm standing in these days.  I'm just a big ol' grump. kids are sick.  Again.  It feels like they've been sick since AUGUST.  Seriously.  I did find out my son is having a reaction from vaccines...he gets a mild case of whatever vaccine he gets...they think it was MEASLES this time.  Who does that happen to?

And then its allergies...or thats what they say...but allergies don't come with vomit and diarrhea, right?

Ugh.  I'm just exhausted from being so exhausted all the time.  ha ha...if that makes any sense at all. work sitch is killing me.  I love my job, but the computer issues are making me crazy.  Our company just switched over to a new system and I've had nothing but trouble.  In fact...this post today is brought to you by "Waiting for tech support to call me back since I can't connect to my email or any of my drives."  Oh..."and the number 7 days that I've had this issue..."

Third.  Why do I have to make dinner EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

ha ha...such a first world problem, I know...but I eat so little and my poor sick kids eat so little...I make food and then its tossed because we never eat it.  I've got to figure out a better system.  I'm wasting money and food and I just hate that.  It makes me feel like a bad steward of all the things I've been blessed with.

Fourth.  This *&%##$% deployment cannot end fast enough.  Only 3 weeks until I see my husband after 9 months, but we are in that ebb that comes with deployments where we have a hard time communicating with each other so we're always grumping at each other or irritated or feelings are hurt.  UGH.  Three weeks...two weeks of together time...another 3 months.

I can do it.  Right?  Right.  I've done it before...I'll probably have to do it again.

Fifth...there really isn't anything more to complain about but 5 just rounds it as of right feet are really cold and I want to take a shower, but it will wake up my sick daughter sleeping in my bed.

Phooey on me.

Tomorrow I'll be in a much better mood....and it will be all rainbows and sunshine because the one thing that does keep going right is losing weight.

I heart my lapband.

  5. Can't wait for the 6 month post!! I feel you on the deployment issues... I don't miss that one little bit! I could spout all of the family advocacy lines to you, but I'll stick with, hang in their girl! It'll be over before you know it! And I really hope those babies feel better quickly. I think I get more worn out dealing with a sick kiddo than if I were sick myself. No fun!!
