Pooh-rific

Our weekend was very uneventful besides game night Friday, Pooh day with Rory Saturday, and the stomach flu Sunday. Hurray for me. Thank goodness for leftover anti-nausea chemo meds.

This morning starts a new week, and I'm determined to get some kind of schedule going in the cooking, exercise, cleaning, laundry departments. I've been in (low) maintenance mode since (before) Christmas, but now it's time to get serious about getting things done around here. And with no chemo until at least February 20, I've got several weeks to develop some better habits.

And I'm just writing it here in public to help keep me accountable, but I'm trying to get back down to 1 cup of coffee a day and no soda (diet caffeine free Mt. Dew is my drink of choice) except on the weekend. So far, my weekends have started Thursday night so we'll call that both a win and a lose. Also trying to get in some exercise 3 times a week. All left-over sugary Christmas items and candy are finally out of the house and I'm back to regular grocery shopping (generally includes mostly boring healthy, clean, non-processed items) which makes it a little hard to satisfy my sweet tooth, but I guess that's the idea.

A cute Rory story. They're reading all about Pooh at school (her teacher is in love with bears) and this was her weekend to bring Pooh home. She had to write a Pooh adventure, and she took her Pooh duties very seriously. She acted as if he were a baby. She fed him, burped him, made him take naps, read books to him, even changed his imaginary diaper. So cute. She also kept calling him Pooh-Pooh and saying she was having a Poohrific Day, which made us laugh a whole lot since we have the maturity of 9 year olds.

As soon as she got home Friday.

And then she asked me to take a picture with my big camera so I could give her "one of those strip thingies that has my face on it." My child did not know what an actual 4x6 real-life picture was. Seriously. I guess I can't blame her too much since she's only seen them on the computer or on the wall.

So, yes, we took a picture to put on one of those strip thingies. These are the 2 she chose.

Ahh, love it! She is certainly gifted in both the personality and the cute department :) I too am totally doing the healthy eating and ready for it to warm up so I can hit the walking paths again. But killing the sweet tooth is so hard in the winter- I crave so bad!
