Obsessing over: various things that are pretty much “same as usual” – the diet which is going well but could always go better ; the hypothetical next vehicle that we may or may not buy this summer and who it may or may not be for and what features it may or may not have ; projects we’d like to do around the house someday…
Feeling:a little cold, perhaps I should fix myself a cup of tea soon?
Working on: losing the weight! It’s been my main focus since the Mommy Blogger Weight Loss Challenge started last week. I’ve been doing a pretty good job (by my standards) of exercising and eating better with only a few tiny blips. I’ll admit, I sort of took it easy on myself yesterday with the Super Bowl, but I still counted my points and tried to behave as much as possible.
I got these new weights this weekend because the last ones we bought are really bulky and I was constantly afraid of hitting myself in the head. These are much better, though I’ll need to pick up some heavier weights soon, I’m still pretty wimpy and sticking with the 5 pounders for now since they are still challenging for me. I know, kinda pathetic.
Thinking about: MM’s kindergarten homework just got revamped which means I’ll need to sit down with him in a minute and go through it with him to make sure we both understand how the new format works. Fun, fun!
Reading: Anne of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery, I’ll likely finish it tonight or tomorrow and then move onto our next book club pick, These Is My Words by Nancy Turner
Anticipating: twice baked potatoes for dinner tonight
Listening to: MM reading his vocabulary words out loud as he writes them all down. The litany of site words that he can read now with little help is seriously blowing my mind.
Drinking: Water! I have been really making an effort to drink LOTS of water and little of NON-WATER and I think I’ve been doing a really good job. This has been my answer for 3 or 4 weeks now and that fact makes me geeky proud.
Wishing: that my mouth would stop hurting. I went to the dentist this morning and although it went well and she said my gums were definitely improving, the procedure I went in for was still pretty painful, especially as the topical stuff wore off as I was leaving. OUCH.
