No cooking tonight

I didn't feel like cooking tonight. So I asked the household what they wanted for dinner. Both the kids said "whatever. I don't have a preference." My husband chimed in with "Pei Wei" so that is where we need up. My son got lemon chicken. My daughter got some spicy dish. My husband got the spicy chicken combo with an egg roll. I got chicken lo main with hot and sour soup.

A little discomfort for tremendous gains

I can't believe how much better I feel today. Those 4 hours of pain yesterday were something else. I did my steady breathing. Concentrating on dissipating the pain. Pretending to quench the flames with water.

And with how good I feel right now? Back to normal already? It's crazy! I spotted yesterday. Today I've had a couple little spots. Nothing big. But I know I'll be in "recovery" for a couple weeks, so I'll probably have more spotting/discharge during the next 14 days.

I know some other gals who've had other ablation procedures. The one gal had the method that used water and she had pain off and on for a couple weeks. When I woke up this morning, after a very satisfying sleep, I was truly surprised how normal I felt. It was as if I hadn't been "beat up" yesterday.

So for now I'm giving the Novasure procedure a HUGE thumbs up!

Groggy blogging

The procedure is done. It was one of those in-office things where they still had to knock me out. So my husband HAD to drive me to and from my OB's office.

I have to tell you that I was starving when it got closer to my appt time of 12:20pm. Thankfully, I had woken up at 3am and made myself eat a PBJ sandwich along some soy milk. I also downed about 32 ounces of water.  I can't imagine how much more hungry and thirsty I would have been if I hadn't done that. Even my OB applauded my actions. I guess there were some ladies who last ate at dinner and were super cranky before their procedure.

Taking care a physical issue

We all know that our bodies change through the years.
Our bodies grow like crazy those first few years of life.
Then we hit puberty and we all shoot up.
Women's bodies change when we have kids.
Then there's what happens as we get even older.

Low blood sugar

I know my kids pretty well. They can be as sweet aspire. But that an be nasty little brats as well.

One thing that makes them into a pile of messy emotions is when they didn't eat every couple hours. My kids grew up eating breakfast, a morning sack, lunch, an afternoon snack, and dinner. During the school week, they stay true to their eating s heddle. On weekends...not so much. Them being 10 and 12, I would think they'd know they still those two little snacks. But alas...they forget.

Creeping up

No. I'm not talking about my underwear!
I'm talking about my weight.
It's gradually working it's way up.
I haven't been running much in the couple of months, so it was inevitable that I'd gain some.
Now I can actually see the weight...not just feel it.
I can tell my waist is thicker.
My legs are less toned.
Not feeling the best about me.
So I have to make some time to run.
I have to.
I have to.
For me.

Making Mommy Laugh

When we were out to dinner this weekend, my daughter leaned over and told me a secret.
"Mommy, I'm not wearing a bra and I feel naked!"
Bwa-ha-ha-ha! I couldn't help but crack up on that one....

My daughter is a few months from being an official teenager. It's hard for me to believe that time is already almost upon me. As a means of accepting her growing up, she has more freedoms in her life. She has earned an increased amount of time per day on her iTouch. She has more minutes per month on her phone. The caveat to her privileges are that she keeps her grades up.

Getting down and dirty

It's getting warmer and warmer as the weeks go on.

I'm taking advantage of the good weather and getting the backyard cleaned up. I suggested pulling the weeds and cutting back the two out-of-control, crazy looking rose bushes, and cutting off the dried out palm tree branches/fronds (sp?). But alas, my suggestions fell on deaf ears. And as I am one who takes work straight on, I went and did this stuff by myself.
