lots of poop (maybe a little TMI)

I went to change my son's poopy diaper and as soon as I lifted up his diaper he peed on me.  I mean, it happens, but ewwwww.  

Today also starts my cleanse and crash diet.  I am going to Chicago in 2 weeks to have a weekend of fun with some friends from high school, and I would like to look better than I do right now.  I still have 25lbs of pregnancy weight left (gained 55 total), and about 62lbs until my "ideal weight" after that, so I'm hoping that this will help jump start the weight loss and work as a motivator.  I recently read Stuff White People Like by Christian Lander and on the list is 'cleanses.'  I had done one before, but didn't really follow the rules of not eating crap while you're trying to clean the crap out of you.  So this time I'm going to stick to it which brings me to my crash diet of only eating veggies, white meat, fish, and the occasional fruit and yogurt.  Pretty much I'm cutting out carbs and sugars.  I'm 8 hours in and I'm doing okay... but I'm pretty sure that by this time tomorrow I am going to be ready for some nachos.

Sometimes I do some bone head things.  My husband (Kyle) travels for work and when he does I go visit my parents.  This week I had planned on spending the week at home since our son (Elliot) has an appointment at the Children's hospital in Milwaukee.  Well, Sunday night came and I really didn't want to sit in a car for 2.5 hours so I decided to spend a few more days at my parents.  We decided to head back on Tuesday night.  About an hour into the trip I realized that I didn't have keys to get into our house.  My house keys are on my car keys, which Kyle took when he went home on Sunday, and they are in our garage.  Uuuuggghhhhhh.  Now this wouldn't have been as frustrating except that we had just done a similar thing about a month earlier.  Thankfully this time we figured it out before getting all the way home, but it's still annoying.  So, now I have to get up at 5:30am in order to get to Milwaukee in time for his appointment, then drive all the way back to my parents.  Cross-state trip with a 4 month old?  This should be interesting.
