a bit behind.

April 04, 2011

that's how I feel anyways. It's always at the end of the semester that I feel like everything around me seems to be at its most stressful point. But I'm doing some things to cope and deal with it and it seems to be working. I am having zero luck with this whole weight thing. The more I work out, the more muscle I gain and I don't really want all of that until after I lose the unwanted weight. another thing stressing me and "weighing me down" so to speak. On top of that I've been having a lot more belly pain than usual which probably means it's time to get my behind back to the doctor. I just don't want them to tell me what I know they will and I'm frightened. But that's no excuse and I need to do it. I know.

This weekend was fairly calm, daddy, the kids and I played 
outside a lot and spent a lot of quality time. We also went to papa and grandma's house to play- which they love.  I have some pictures (of course, when do I not?) so I will share-  Adriana and Ryland made butterflies while I made a leafy vine thing to hang on our bookshelf  &we went to get ice cream sundae's with aunt Sara yesterday. lots of fun!

with all of this mess said, there's banana bread in the oven, a cup of green chai tea at my side and I'm gearing up for a night full of studying about volcanoes and earthquakes- which I must say I am most unprepared for.. considering my professors test are impossible to study for since she teaches nothing in class but how much she loves what we're learning about. Needless to say, shes a great person- just not the best professor I've ever had. Oh! and we have a strong/severe thunderstorm headed our way around 2am that has caused much damage to the mid-west so far. sigh. 
so I leave you with some happy moments from our weekend.
