This is NOT a dieting blog. I needed to say that. I can't consistently write about my challenges with weight loss, mainly because I never really am that concerned about seriously losing weight.
That has all changed.
My best friend has just been diagnosed with diabetes. By just, I mean like yesterday,literally. My bestie is the same age as me, approximately the same height (she is about 2 inches taller), and approximately the same weight/build. Actually, I weigh about 30lbs more than she. I say all of that to say that it could have very well been me instead of her. As I sit here tonight typing this, she is in the hospital with uncontrolled blood sugar. So, as the title indicates, I am have been scared skinny. Yes folks you heard it here first: I am going to take an active interest in my health and weight loss.
Back to the usual antics-As I sit here, trying to have a serious moment, my 3yr old beautiful angelic loving princess of a daughter is screaming in my left ear, "Watch this mom!!!" as she blows up a balloon and releases the air/spit in my face. Todd, the husband who was awesome yesterday ( yes YESTERDAY) is talking to me and getting annoyed that I am typing while he is talking. He has now proclaimed he will never read my blog again because I am not paying attention to him.
Question: How the hell am I supposed to be able to listen to him, the kid, wipe kid spit off of me, and type at the same time?
Answer: Super powers. All moms have them. Put them to use.
OK, the hubby is happy now. I had to remove my hands from the keyboard and give him my undivided attention. And by undivided, I totally mean with the kid still screaming and releasing spit in my face.
