It seems like I haven't talked to you in FOREVER. Just those quick little check-ins to let you know I was alive. So, let's catch up, shall we?
I spent most of last week knitting on the lace shawl like crazy, and getting sick again. Fever, chills, bad cough and cold. Pretty much the same as last time, but not quite as severe. It's really annoying. I'm tired of being sick - I have things to do!
I spent Easter Sunday pretty hyped up on cold medication. It's not a bad way to spend a day, but it's disappointing not being able to taste all the good food. Although, the good news, I'm not really tempted to eat the kids' candy! The Easter Bunny brought me a Jodi Piccoult book, in an attempt to help me stick to eating healthier, and lose some weight. I'm not obsessive about my weight, and I generally stink at dieting. But, I'm still carting around a bunch of extra pounds from my pregnancies, and I'd like to lose them. I've been doing Pilates at home while the kids nap, and I'm trying to walk a few times a week (which means putting both kids in the stroller, which is new to them. They're used to walking. But they walk very slowly, and that's not conducive to my own aerobic activity.) I've lost a few pounds, and if I could lose a few pounds more, I'd be pretty happy.
Knitting, by the way, also does not help my aerobic activity. I've started to focus on a baby bonnet. The picture doesn't show much, I know.
I'm co-hosting a shower for the mom-to-be in May, and I'd like to have this, a bib, and a washcloth or three done. We'll see... There's also a wedding shower next month, for which I had hoped to have a dozen or so dishcloths. That's not happening. I'll be hitting the stores for that gift instead!
So, that's what's been going on with me. What's been happening in your life?
