"I'm a mother, I'm a lover, a chef, a referee. I'm a doctor, and a chauffeur seven days a week. I ain't asking for a medal, yeah I know you work too. I'd just like a little credit where credit is due. It's the hardest gig I've ever known. I work my fingers to the bone. Yeah the dishes and the diapers never stop. Lousy pay, there ain't no 401K. I know this may come as a shock, but this here's a full time job!"--Full Time Job sung by Gretchen Wilson

Big Day!! (Take It Off Tuesday!)

Wow, OK, so it is only 11 am here and it has been a BIG DAY!!! I apologize for not posting yesterday, but I didn't really have a recipe to share and I was pretty busy with 2 of the kiddos (L is at Grandma's) who were crying a lot! So, on to today!

This morning J had to get tubes put in her ears. Yes, it is a routine procedure, but when it is your kid and they are little and they put them under, But, she did fantastically! She didn't even cry when the anesthesiologist took her back (and before you ask, yes, I did, but I didn't do too badly!). The nurse said she didn't cry when she woke up either. She started fussing a little when they had to take off the heart monitor patches and when the ears started to be a little sore, but other than that, she did AWESOME! At home, she was back to her old self and has already said "beans" and "ball". I about cried again! It is so great. She is napping right now and I told her we could go to either McDonald's or Burger King for a treat for lunch.

In other big news....I lost 4.8 pounds this week! I am floored! I know I did well, I worked my TAIL off, but I wasn't expecting that! E was happy as he had told me that by having a smaller number last week that I would probably have a big one this week! He loves it when he is right! But, I am very happy. I looked in the mirror today I can really start to tell a difference. It makes me feel so good and I'm really proud of myself for all my hard work. I have 20 more days until my contest is over...it would be SO awesome to win!!

We had a wonderful Easter holiday. I hope you did too. I need to go as M is starting to get fussy (shocking!), but I hope you have a wonderful day!
With Love,
