you want fries with that?...NO!

we watched 'super size me' last night...
talk about a good diet plan
(& i mean watching the movie, not the Mcmeals 3x a day:)

it was really gross
not just the fact that he did very bad things to his liver
& that he became really tired & lethargic
& that he wasn't able to (ahem) 'perform' as well
(thank you to his girlfriend for the ultimate TMI)

what was gross for me was
the fact that some of those big bottoms they showed
from the back could have been me
i could have been one of the unlucky people to have
my eyes covered with the black line
(can you even imagine if you really recognized yourself?
embarassment city! hello!)

i really need to do something soon
granted i just had a baby
but as soon as i get the okay
i'm getting out!
& i'm going to eat some fruit
& maybe some veggies
(i said MAYBE!!)

my friend angie
(the one who helped me figure out the picture thing)
is a running machine!
she did the portland marathon last year
& is doing a half in june

here she is kicking some butt

i want to be there next year
yes i do
i said it on a public forum
(does it matter if no one else is reading it?)
so i have accountability

we'll see....

thank you mr super size
a lovely little wake up call
or a lovely BIG wake up call
as the case may be...

26 April 2006

thanks to computer girl extraordinaire, angie
i think i might have a picture

& she explained it to me
1) over the phone
2) without having her computer on in front of her
just by memory
what a star!

thank you angie!
i am blogger with pictures!

this picture being Q
on easter
he looks like a big boy
a big boy with a cracker in his mouth...

& miss merra in her easter dress
thanks auntie kate!

i am maybe too excited about this...
but hey i'm a stay at home mom
anything new is something to get excited about

this is a test...this is only a test....


snuggle down!

today is snuggle down!

brian's 3rd grade class has a day every so often
when they all wear their jammies
to school
& bring their pillows
& blankies
& they watch movies
& read

we have snuggle down at home
every wednesday
we stay home all day
we stay in our jammers at least until after nap
(i like us to get dressed at some point
so it looks like we did something:)
we just hang out at home

when Q hears the garbage truck
now, it is very lucky for mr. Q
that garbage day & snuggle down are both wednesday
or he would miss
what i am quite sure
is the high light of his
2 year old week:
we hear the garbage truck
we run out to the sidewalk
(we already have sweatshirts & shoes on
in anticipation)
& we walk with the garbage truck for 2 blocks
I walk
he sprints
& stops
watches each can get emptied
sprints along the sidewalk
to the next set
grinning all the way
it is just the cutest thing ever

what is not the cutest thing ever
i'm sure
is his tired old mother
still in her jammers
walking along
holding a 1 month old baby
trying to keep up...
my exercise for the day:)

but the smile on his face is worth
the neighborhood embarassment...

(& last week we helped a lady
who had locked herself out of her house
so it is really a neiborhood outreach;)

so here's to snuggle downs
& garbage trucks
& the 2 year old boys who love them
& the mommies who love the boys

i wonder sometimes

oh boy!
that's funny...
so if i blog once every 7 months
i'll fill a page in about 3 years

i've been reading other blogs
& thinking that it is so nice that
all of these people have a little journal
of their life at this time
i want one too!

so let's see how this goes...
see you in january 2007...
