Week Eleven
~ Excitement and Fatigue

This week has been nuts trying to get all the last minute details done for Kids "R" Us. I got hit with a major flu on Monday (July 19) but tried to keep going. I have been phoning, designing (pretend) passports and brochures, sewing etc. Tuesday I paged Shawn and he came home from work, as he promised. I told him I just couldn't keep going and proceeded to become "one with the couch." I was comatose for about two hours. There have been a lot of late nights and early mornings since Sam has decided to make a habit of starting the day at 5:00 a.m. Oh well, it turns out ok. I get to spend some time with him, actually read more than one line of my Bible every five minutes and do a few household chores before the rest of the gang gets up. I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to do book work for the business, but when I tried, my brain insisted on staying in a jello state. Maybe I'll try again 'cause it really would be great to get up to date.

I have always wanted to get into a good exercise routine, I know, me and the rest of Earth's inhabitants. I'm determined though. I want my regular clothes to fit sooner after I have my babies. I don't know if its just me, but the more kids I have the better I want to look. I guess I'm trying to avoid the cliche image of the haggled housewife with the permanent pony tail. You know, people like me who you can always spot in a track suit. Not that there's anything wrong with that mode of dress. I just want to find stuff that actually looks good on me and wear it. I'm only 24, and I feel like I've been doing the mommy thing for a lot longer than five years. Know what I mean?

The scale said 142 lbs. this week, up a little from 139 lbs. I went to put on my favorite jeans this week only to find that I couldn't zip them up. I let out a loud aawwwwwww. I had just gotten back into them a month and a half ago. Time to get out the maternity clothes already? Afraid so.
