how to lose 5 pounds in 1 day!!!

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on July 8, 2008

well, folks, i have the no fail way to lose a wopping 5 pounds in just one day!! it’s called a stomach bug, ewwwww. i’m sorry, no diet fads here. the fam and i went to a friends’ house on july 4 for some bbq and friendship. we got there and the husband said, i’m gonna be sick…went to the side of the yard and threw up. we stayed for about 1 1/2 hours, hubby was worried about him, and then we left and went to sis in laws instead. well, fast forward to saturday night and i tell hubby my tummy hurts, and he gives me the look, and i say, it’s nothing, i just ate to much…welll, about an hour later i was alternately hugging and sitting on the potty. ugh. around 230 in the morning, after i threw up the water i had drank, it finally stopped. and i just moaned and was miserable till hubby got up at 330 to get ready for work…needless to say, he called in sick. it took 4 phone calls to get someone to come in for him, by the way; can anyone say “team work” sorry to be so snarky, but he hasn’t called in sick in like 6 months, and i was just getting irritated cause he is the only one i can count on cause our families can’t be called in at the last minute to help(they live far away, have kids, and some of them can’t be trusted…sad but true). i wish we had more friends, but it just hasn’t happened for us. i am alone with the kids alot, and hubby is at work alot and we just don’t get out, ever!

ok, pitty party is over….i promise!!!

roo is now 15 pounds…well at least last week he was, he is probably more now. i don’t just make milk, i make half-n-half. this boy is nothing but rolls. he will be 3 months old in 3 days, and we are fitting into 9 month old clothes. poor newt was barely 20 pounds at 1 yr old! he was breastfed too….every baby is different, that’s for sure!!!

it has been raining here almost everyday. my bell peppers have been eaten alive, and have now made more babies (the other babies got eaten) and i bought pesticide to try to save the new ones, and also my lettuce. next year we may put a screen over them, but that may not help. i need to learn more about beneficial pests and planting things together that help keep the bugs away…like apparently marigolds by tomatoes keep bugs away! (i happen to catch that one from the paula deen cooking show..not sure why, but that nugget of info has stuck with me for more that a year)

well, back to cruising the internet and waisting my 3 yr old’s nap time!! i will be making tortillas and starting some curtains during this time, so not all is waisted, heehee!
