30 in 30

I started low carb back in June 2004,when I was told I had PCOS - and by that December I had dropped 65lbs! I felt great. I had a medical/emotional issue in Nov/Dec 04 - that was very hard for me to get over (still struggling), I got laid off Jan 05, took a bad job Feb 05-July 05 and then got pregnant.

Needless to say, I have put on about 20 of those lost pounds and had gotten away from the lo-carb lifestyle. I still limit my sugar, but I have become more free with the "treats".

So when I get back from vacation on September 11 - I am going to start the 30lbs in 30 weeks challenge offered by LivinLaVidaLoCarb. I am already stocking the house with some lo-carb favorites like Beef Jerky and Pork Rinds. I tend to stick closer to South Beach, you get more carbs, fruit and less fat than Atkins. I hope to start CURVES back up as well.

I am going to break out my ole cookbooks and can't wait to try Shirataki noodles. I don't plan on posting my weights - but I will share the lbs lost or gained!

Tears of a Clown

I have always found Clowns a bit creepy - but this is a sad story from Ireland.

Cheapest Puppets Ever

Ok Ok..I love some children's programming...I am a HUGE Bear fan. I went to see the stage show at MGM a few years ago and I own 2 stuffed Bears - all before I became a momma

I am at a loss though over this baby/toddler show - Oobi "Oobi, a bare-hand puppet (with eyes and accessories)" That's right - IT'S A HAND and Oobi has a HAND family members. It's disturbing, but I find myself oddly interested in the stilted way the hands "speak"

I am searching for the stellar programs for little man...not sure if this is it...

Laugh out Loud

On August 14 - A gave Nain a little giggle. I missed it and was so very sad...well August 17 - I got rewarded!

Oracle and I were having some Maggie Moo's and A started giving daddy eyebrows and smiling - pretty much saying "give me some daddy - you know you want to do that" ...of course no ice cream for little man...BUT

I made a little face and he starts LAUGHING! I made faces and he laughed for a good 5 minutes. I have not been able to get him to repeat it yet though...

I wish I could take a vacation and not have the stress of worrying about my family's financial well being. We are going on vacation first week in September and my gov contract is up for renewal - there is a chance a new company could win and I would be unemployed! Since I am on a gov contract - my company puts you "on the bench" for 2 weeks to see if you can find another place before they show you the door. I was on the bench after returning my maternity leave since my other contract had been cancelled while on leave and they knew better than to do it while I was on leave - can we say lawsuit...anyho - here I am again.

The last 3 years have been filled with this. Each trip to Ft Lauderdale has been filled with job worry - and last year's vacation to update NY was filled with fear since I was starting a new job on my return. I guess I will worry no matter what - better to worry on the beach. I am just concerned about the $ I could be saving by staying home, but I would be out about $500 since the tickets and car are already paid for...I am not sure what to do yet.

Do you really want to hurt me....NY courts say yes!

Oh George O'Dowd - have you have fallen. At least you are done with the whole black make-up on your neck phase - it didn't hide your double chin.

Man - he is looking old...

Frying up a mess of Kitty...

This is A's first real experience with the Exersaucer. This is Nain's - we have yet to get on...trying to save a few bucks and get one on E-Bay, but no luck yet.

He seems to like it IF he is in a good mood - otherwise BEWARE or his alternate ego will appear.

Just being...

I seem to get a touch of the melancholy several times a year. Lately, I have been BORED at work so I have a lot of time to think about my life. I have my son (which I thank God for everyday) and my husband (God gets props for him too), but I don't seem to have that spark that I once had.

I am not sure if its because I have not acted in many years or what - but I just feel like I am existing.. I can't say its worse since A was born, just different. I mean now some one really needs me - so that's a different feeling. I am so happy to be a mommy, I love A and my time with him never seems to be enough - but there is still something missing

Maybe once I get the house in order and M starts the new job (and I see that is a good move) I will feel better.
