I Melt

Me: Sitting at the kitchen table cursing the computer under my breath because it won't stay connected to the Internet for longer than five minutes.

A2: Sitting in the middle of my bed, two rooms over, watching Go Diego Go.

Me: Overcome by uncontrollable fit of sneezing.

A2 after the sneezing ended: "bes woo".

How sweet was that! It was like second nature for him to say it to me and I could hear him from all the way in my bedroom.


Better yet, I love that he is so much like me! It kills his Dad that he is picking up more and more of my mannerisms every single day. Last night he was playing with his Mack car hauler when the back latch came undone and the cars rolled out.

He stood there for about five seconds looking down at the cars on the ground then turned and stuck out both hands and said, "awww, maaain". (Translated into Aw, Man! Only my most used phrase ever when something like that happens!)

Hubby just shook his head.

This morning A2 was actually awake when hubby left for work so we walked him to the door to say our goodbyes to him. I whispered in A2's ear to tell daddy to "go make milk money" and he of course did it. It came out a little mangled but hubby got the gist of it.

Again, hubby just shook his head.

Instead of hubby telling me to "have a good day dear," he left telling me I was "ruining that baby." I got a good chuckle out of that one for at least 10 more minutes.

And yes, I'm fully aware that it's cute now and that as he gets older it will turn into something not so cute.

Hence, A1 (13) = Just. Like. Me. = I want to strangle him sometimes for it!!

Can I just take this opportunity to apologize to my parents for being, well, a teenager back then.

Switching gears: Last night as I was working out I had my iPod blaring, yet for some reason, I kept singing this one particular song to get me through the last 15 minutes on the elliptical and naturally I had to download it today.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit it but, here it is, my new workout mantra.

Don't laugh, download it and I guarantee you'll kick up the pace once it comes on. You can't help but bounce a little bit to it. Even though it wasn't playing in my ears it made that last 15 minutes go by a lot easier!

Don't ask me what made this pop into my head last night but it completely overrode everything else coming through my earbuds like some sort of twisted earworm that wouldn't go away!

I'm sad, I'm fully aware.

Oh and as for those three pounds I wanted to lose, those fuckers are hanging on for dear life. I weighed again today, 143.5. What gives!!??!!

Dear Scale,

This is what I think of you and your refusal to Show! Me! The! Weight! Loss!

Just wanted to clear that up. See you Monday.


Have a happy weekend out there everyone else! Don't let anything break your stride!!
