Hi! I haven't been here for quite a while. I'm going to try again though! I frequently read your entries, this helps keep the top on my weight gain when I'm not actively journaling. So, thank you all so much!
Just a little update: Eric is doing well with his new position and his freelance work. Ryan just got back from a 3 day/night boy scout camp, he had a wonderful time, he will start 5th grade on the 22nd. Sean I crawling, climbing and walking (holding on to things), he has his 9 month check up tomorrow (shots!). As for me I am feeling like I have my life more under my control. Been very busy with house, computer, family, and my endless painting, decorating and woodworking projects (Not done with the glider swing yet).
I wish all of you a happy diet day! Good luck!!!!!

Hi everyone. Been reading your entries and making a comment here and there. I admire all of you for the effort and hard work you do with your diets. I'm not doing so well in that area at this time. Feel a little ashamed to take up anyones time on this site for that reason. Just can't seem to keep my spirit up where it belongs to be able accomplish much beyond lifes nessecities. Good luck to you all. Robin

Hi! Didn't journal yesterday, made a few comments! I think it's easier for me to write about the day before like i did when I started DD. So thats what I'll do.
Diet, calorie wise went ok yesterday, my choices have to get better though (no exercise, I know). Puffed rice for breakfast, tuna (melt) for lunch and meatloaf for dinner (used ground turkey and mornigstar ground meatless). The melt on tuna is what done me in, butter and cheese what was I thinking?
Stayed up late again working. Fell asleep for half hour while Sean was in his crib. I woke up and was so sore and sick, don't know what that was about but it passed quickly, I was all better in few minutes.
Sean is being really fussy, Ryan is home from camp and Eric got a late start to the office. Gota go. Be back latter to comment

Hi! Had my entry in then my comp. froze. Blank entry, sorry! So again I'll try again.
Up .5 lbs? Diet went well yesterday. Retaining a little water around this time if you get my drift. Going to try to stay away from the rice today though, satisfaction vs calories doesn't cut it. I'love my taco salads even without the cheese so I think I'll have that today (again), they are healthy the way I make them.
I know I tend to create lengthy rambling sentences and my grammer most likley makes some people cring, but the only way I can write is to write like I talk, and this is how I talk. And no no one has mentioned this, it's just something I'm a little ashamed of, but not enough to get better at it. Just being honest!
WELL I broke down and bought ONE outfit. I was desperate for something cool to wear to run errands in.
I have a lot to get done today. It seems like I'm runnig 10 micro busineses from this house just keeping records for all our ventures, jeez loiuse, I had more spare time when I worked full time away from the house. How did I do it while I was workiing?
Can we place links to our personal home pages here? Eric has worked really hard making one that represents our family (Pictures and cool stuff) and I would like to share it with any of you who are interested. Does the word cool date me to much?

Hi! Well another 1.5 lbs, may be some of this was water gain and thats why it's coming off so fast. I didn't formally exercise yesterday, just the normal running around after my kids. Does that count? I know it is exausting, so it should! Did real well on my diet, but I know I should be eating more/better and exercising more. Will work on that today.
Not to much happened yesterday around here. Didn't get the time to paint or get my lumber. Sean is mobile now almost crawling, scoots backwards on his belly and rolls everywhere. Ryan is enjoying day camp. He gets to see alot of his friends from his old school. Eric has decided to freelance for the channel 9 news here as a weekend remote cameraman. Went out the first time last nightat 11 pm, a truck had rolled over on the freeway couple miles from our home. He had his equipment and RYAN in the car before I knew what was going on. They came back about an hour later. BOY! Eric didn't park on the freeway (good), he parked above the freeway on an outer road and LEFT RYAN IN THE CAR (worse than bad). Well Eric climbed down this rock inbankment cut/scaped up his arms, elbows and leg and broke a piece off of his new camera (!*!*#!). Are others people lives this hectic? Everyone is ok so I guess no harm done.
Everyone have a good day. Robin FitDay for Sunday the 17th

Hi! The weight seems to going down again, feel real bad that I gained it all back. What a waste of time to do such a thing and I know how unhealthy it is. Did not exercise yesterday, played outside Ball, Badmitton with Ryan though.
Not sure what I'll do today after the regular chores are finished. Need to finish painting my living room. I'm painting it forest green. I have 2 walls left but they are going to be real hard they're 18 feet high and 1 is the wall the stairs are against. I'd like to go order the lumber for my swing, maybe. Lot of computer work to do, but I've been doing that all week.
Well all of you have a great day!!!!! Robin

Hi! Well Yesterday went fairly well. I was so busy yesterday I ate very little during the day (was going to have a good diner). Had horrible storms here in KC, in the 10 years we have lived in this subdivision we have never lost elec for more than 30 min at a time, not so yesterday 6pm to 12am. All utilities are underground, guess they come from somewhere though huh? Anyway, diner wasn't made by 6pm then I lost electricity. It cooled off a great deal so that was a plus. Had a homes assoc. annual picnik meeting at my house at 7pm.
Eric wasn't home and Ryan, Sean and I were so tired we were all asleep by 9pm.
Eric called from work at 12:45am so I could have a meal for him when he got home. He's workaholicing again, but from experience this will have to run it's course, I'm staying out of his way while trying to be supportive. So I got up came downstairs suprise I didn't turn the oven off when the power went out, had a pie crust in the oven burnt to a crisp, could have started a fire. got rid of the crust and made Eric dinner. Then waited for him to get home, he came in at 2am boy was he in a bad mood, so I heated up his diner and took a bath then went to bed again at 3:30am. Hope today hold no suprises, going to be another busy day, I'll comment thoughout the day as I get the chance.
Good luck to everyone!!!
Oh! Had trouble commenting yesterday kept getting errors, anyone else? So sorry minea and pastagal I lost my comments to you. After 2 lost I stopped, great mind huh?

Hi! Wavered a little this morning about starting my diet today. But I thought I put myself out there last night better follow though! So here I am. Still pretty early I've only had coffee so far.
Got up at 6am, changed a fed Sean, woke Ryan, made beds, coffee, breakfast and lunches for Ryan and Eric. Hearded Ryan thu his morning hygiene (why don't 10 year old boys care if they are clean?). Fed fish and cats, Got Eric off to work, then I had 10 minutes to put myself togeather. Changed Sean again, then Ryan helped me pack up the car with his camp stuff and Seans things. We all piled in and took Ryan to day camp. It's really nice we just drive thru the lot and a councelor is waiting there to take your child while you check him in for the day. I don't even have to get out of the car, which is great because I don't have to fool with the Seans car seat or folding stroller. Sean and I made it back home by 8 am.
I've since been playing and taking care of Sean (another bottle), working on the computer, bills/paperwork/insurance (I'm still getting billed for the amnio I had May of 2000! and Erics vas last Dec.).
My plan for the swing glider came! Went and ordered the lumber last friday. It was delivered Tue. I had to send it all back because they sent me seconds (what's the deal there? I didn't say I wanted seconds and no one asked). So I'm goin to a dif lumber yard to get it, I will pick it out board by board myself.

Everyone have a great day and thank you for your comments on that little entry of mine last night. Robin
