9 Pounds KO'ed - BUH BYE

Hey, girls! Well, the walking is paying off. I've always maintained that I don't overeat - I under do. And the scale is agreeing with me - 2 weeks and 9 pounds are gone like yesterday's garbage. YAY!

Anyway, I was really ambitious yesterday and decided to tackle a huge spot on our carpet that couldn't be anymore obvious if it were bright red paint (we have grayish-white carpet in most of our house). So I hit it with the carpet cleaner and it all amazingly came up. One problem - it's the only spot of CLEAN carpet in the entire house now. Dammit. Now I need to go rent a Rug Doctor before our little fall soiree in November. And I'll have to do the steps, too (insert sad face with single tear).

Holy shit. Little Diva is going through this whining stage with EVERYTHING! It's driving me fucking crazy!!! Despite repeated attempts to require the "nice voice" for any action from a parental figure, the whiiiiniiing continues. On top of that, we are currently fighting the Battle of Naptime. I swear to god I'm going to lose it with this...

Why an I in such a funky mood? Could it be that mommy needs a GIRLIE DAY? DID SOMEONE JUST SAY THAT PAYDAY IS TOMORROW? Perhaps on Saturday, I will head out and do some girl stuff just for me. I'll have my e-mail forwarded to Sephora in case you all need me ('cuz I know you do). Hmmmm. Black and white shopping bags holding the keys to eternal good looks and femininity. I think that will do nicely.

I'm going to write something else later. I need to go find my sense of humor. It's somewhere around here...

Congrats on the loss! I've been taking walks with Maddie after dinner to try and help the WW along. Nothing too strenuous, tho. Just around the neighborhood, which is a mile total. But I tell myself it's better than sitting on my ass.

I'm totally there with you on the whining shit. I go from "nice mommy" to "threaten to kill you now mommy" when Maddie starts that crap. God help me in the coming years.

Artemisia: Thanks, girl! Hope your training is going well. I'll be checking in on your blog to see how it goes for you!!!

Erica: Slow and steady wins the race. Seriously, I go out just with the intention of walking to clear my head and get some air. Before I know it, I'm hauling some ass and I'm dreaming I'm some video model. Fiddy come save me!!!

Hee hee on the clean spot. My mom used to always tell us not to clean up spills too well or we would "leave a clean spot".

Tessie: Youre mom rocks! What was I thinking, cleaning so well?

9 pounds in 2 weeks? That's awesome! And the "clean spot" made me laugh out loud. Our living room carpet is off-white, so I feel for you.

Lorid: No kidding on the carpet! Obviously, I had it installed long before marriage and the kid...
