View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Okay. Super annoyed. Just lost a blog entry.
I have limited mental capacity to reproduce these articulate works of art, people.
I voted this morning. I loved seeing the diversity of people in line. So many were new voters and so many were new Americans. It was very powerful to see their enthusiasm. I teared up as I was leaving because I kept thinking, I hope Im part of something historic today. I also kept thinking of Baracks Grandmother, and how bittersweet if he has a victory without her.
Very powerful sermon on Sunday at church about civic duties and spirituality:
I cried during the whole service. But, I cry at every service. I probably need help on the other hand, how great to be so moved every Sunday.
Im looking at a house tonight after work!
Exicitng, yes? Its smaller than we have now from a square footage standpoint, but has 1 more bedroom, which we need. And the location! And the lake!
Its a long shot wed have to make a low ball offer contingent on the sale of our existing home (good luck, righ?! November in this market. Not likely). But, stranger things have happened.
What else just got news that my dear friend in CA (not you, Callie but cant you jump on her bandwagon, please) is moving back to the midwest. Yippee!!!
Plateau was broken this weekend. Good reminder to myself to just keep on keeping on.
Unfortunately, I havent been able to workout much this week because Ive gotten way dizzy and lightheaded during my workouts. I think I need to eat earlier in the day. So, Im going to give my body a break this week and start up again next week with a slightly different schedule.
Ellen is feeling better, finally. Its become very obvious, though, to both Steve and I that she is very needy when Im around. She wants me to hold her all the time. I finally found a sling I can use with her to save my left arm some aches and pains. Shes sleeping much better lately still gets up once in a 10 hour stretch, but Ill take it. And it still gets me some snuggle time with her. Love me some baby snuggling.
Wills party went perfectly. Seriously the ONLY thing we decided wed do differently is to bring wipes. Other than that, he and his friend and their parents had a great time. Steve and I did some major self-back-patting on that one.
My son is 3. Its SUCH a mind-bender for me. 3. I cant quite grasp it yet.
Oh, Mama can I kiss your owie? Oh, Mama sawee you-ah fwusawaited.
