Helloooooo out there

I did not disappear,but I have been absent. Cade decided to throw my BRAND NEW LAPTOP on the ground, and broke it-or something. I have to take it to get repaired, yay for extended warranties. This happened 10 days ago and I STILL haven't had time yet. So I'm relegated to Tyler's computer and I don't like sitting in the basement thus I am basically required to do other things, like read, clean, sleep...you know the drill.

Things that have happened since my last post:
1. I'm not sick anymore, aside from some crap in my lungs the wretchedly bad cold symptoms are all gone.

2. While the rest of my head feels good my ears do not. I have chronic inner ear inflammation and have to take round the clock antihistamines for 2-3 weeks to see if I can bring it down, if not then I need to see a specialist. It makes me feel off balance and therefore I am prone to chronic stumbling.

3. This leads me to tell you about my mildly sprained ankle. Yes, my ear casued me to stumble when I tried to get out of bed to feed my baby at 2am. Thanks ears, thanks baby.

4. I am having a momma's only trip, leaving on Aug 27 early afternoon and coming home Aug 30 lunchtime. I NEED a break but I am having a really really really(!!!) tough time with thinking about being so far from Cade. I have never been away from him. I'm going shopping, in Seattle, and I'll need to get really drunk not to think about how much I miss my guys. Ok, maybe just slightly drunk. On the upside, THREE nights of straight sleep. Does that really exist?

5. Work is going well. My boss gave me a GC for Coach, because she knows that I might have just a slight addiction. Woohoo for me, double woohoo for her!

6. I saved $34 this week by waiting for a 20% off coupon day at a store I like. BUT, I accidentally boughtjeans with a 36 inch inseam, because we all know that I'm tall enough to wear a 36 inch inseam. Umm wait, 5"7 didn't really cut it...then I bought a sweater.

7. This leads me to tell you that after that wedding I went to on Aug 2/3 I decided that I looked like a pig and needed to lose weight. I have lost 12lbs in 22 days and I am not starving myself. I am counting calories and am being diligent. Plus I allow myself a cheat day every week. That said my trip will likely be a "cheat" three days but that's ok, I'll be extra good when I come home.

8. Cade has taken to saying f**k, when he tries to say "sock". It's so hard not to laugh. He also says c**k in replacement of sock. That one shocks even my husband. This in addition to the constant "homo!". Nice.

And that's all from our household. Have a fun week!
