Political Ad of the Day: Vote Arthur Kohl-Riggs -- I'm not going to actually vote for him, and am not endorsing him, but I love this Ad. I was watching Comedy Central when I first saw it, and honestly thought it was a joke. The Dos Equis "most interesting man in the world" commercials are some of my favorite, and good for him for making his own version.
It's been 2 weeks since I last wrote anything and even longer since I wrote about weight issues. I have missed the pass two weigh-in's and honestly had just forgotten about them. My days all kind of blend together and Elliot got sick, and I've been sick, and next thing I know, two weeks have gone by.
I've been exhausted constantly. Kyle travels every week and about every 7-10 days for 3-4 days Caroline will get up in the middle of the night to eat. This cuts down even more on my sleep. Because I'm so tired I find myself mindlessly eating and snacking just for energy to stay awake. Sometimes it's healthy like strawberries, sometimes it's semi-healthy like chips and homemade salsa or cheese and crackers, and sometimes it's leftover Pizza Hut that I ordered the night before because I was too tired to make dinner for myself. And that includes being too tired to throw a Lean Cuisine in the microwave. Unfortunately, no matter how tired I am, I can't seem to fall asleep before 10. I think I'm just so excited to finally have some time alone that I can't fall asleep.
I know I should try to nap when the kids nap, but lately that's only been a 45 minute overlap when they're both sleeping. That gives me enough time to eat lunch, go to the bathroom, and then I get to pick shower or nap. If I pick nap I end up not being able to fall asleep right away, and when I do fall asleep I'm awaken minutes later by Caroline. If I pick shower, I may still be tired, but at least I'm clean.
Working out has been completely thrown to the wayside. We were going to move the treadmill inside this weekend, but didn't want to do it in the rain on Saturday and forgot on Sunday. It's probably for the best right now since we're having Elliot's birthday party this weekend!
I want to be super mom and make all of the food and the cake for the party, and somehow do it with both kids, and have everything decorated and ready by Saturday at 1:00. Thankfully, I'm blessed with a wonderful husband who knows how to manage my overachieving into realistic goals and he said I could make either the cake or the food. I chose to make the cake (and at this moment still have no idea what I'm going to make), and we were going to order pizza from Famous Yeti's, which as I think I've explained before, is the best pizza ever. This is where the problem comes in. In the wee morning hours of Monday there was a fire at Stoughton Spirits. This is where we buy wine, so I was interested in the article and kept looking for updates. In the afternoon I read this report, paying close attention to line 4 which states: "The fire also damaged a pizza parlor." If this was a movie, this would be the part where I quickly sit up straight, my eyes wide with realization that the pizza parlor next to Stoughton Spirits is ... pause for dramatic effect ... Famous Yeti's! NOOOOO!!!!
So when (if) they open today I have to give them a call and see if they will be open Saturday... and of course upon further inspection of their website I realized that they don't open until 3 on Saturday... so I may also have to ask if they would even be able to make pizzas to be ready by 1. Among other things on my to-do list is to find another place to get food from or order a cake from... and still buy decorations... and gifts...
