Diet Update: I still haven’t cheated, while Dave is being much more lax about the whole no-sugar, no-white-flour thing. Which is fine for him – he’s a guy, he can probably drop ten pounds just by thinking about cutting sugar out of his diet. Grrr. (Ok, full disclosure: I did have one roll of Smarties, but I was getting the low blood sugar shakes, so I panicked and went for the candy.) Anyway, I’m starting to feel better, which I guess means my body is almost finished with this whole sugar detox process. And I’m coming up with some interesting dinner recipes, which has been challenging (no mashed potatoes or pasta on the side? what are we supposed to eat?!?!), but we’ve found some things that we really like, so that’s good.
Sippy Cup Update: I think I won this particular battle in the Toddler War. Yesterday and today, every time Catie was thirsty and asked for a drink, she took the sippy cup from me and drank it on her own with no objection at all. Awesome. Mommy FTW!
Weather Update: We’ve had this crazy wind/rain storm off and on all day today, and it knocked out our power for about two hours. I was bitching and moaning about it until I heard about the flooding out in Seattle, looked up road closures for King County, and found out that sure enough, if we were still in our old house, we’d be flooded in and not able to go anywhere. So now I’m shutting up because I am just ever so thankful that we don’t live there anymore.
Employment Update: I had a job interview today, which was for a job that I’d feel totally indifferent about (it’s fine, I wouldn’t hate it, but it isn’t my passion, so… meh?), but the salary is really impressive, so I’m sort of confused and trying to wrap my head around it. If I get the offer, I’m sure I’ll end up taking it, just because it would be a really good opportunity. But it’s kind of a moot point for now, because all I’ve had at this point is a preliminary interview with an HR person. If they decide they like me, I’ll still have two or three more rounds of interviews to get through, before I maybe, possibly, get an offer. So absolutely nothing is decided at this point. I’m trying not to worry about it, and just know that whatever is supposed to happen, will happen. You know, que sera sera or something like that.
That storm yesterday was crazy- I thought it’d blow my car off the road. But around 5pm, e-baby and I were driving east and there was a HUGE end-to-end double-band rainbow in the sky. It lasted a long time. It was one of the best rainbows I’ve ever seen.
I don’t know if it’s our latitude or the angle of the sun or what, but all the best rainbows I’ve ever seen have been since I’ve lived in NC. At the same time, much of east Raleigh was in a total blackout.
Hoorah on the sippy-cup war!
Hey you! I’ve been good! But I did have a chocorelapse last night 🙂 It had been a long day!
Um, babe? I saw you eating Cheez-Its and those little Nabs sandwich cracker things with Catie yesterday. So: what-EVAH.
Yeah , but I ate them but did not swallow.
Dave, you sound like Bill Clinton. 🙂
All I can say, Cindy, is that I’m glad y’all are not living in Duvall, because you would need rafts and then some now. Blech.
