Only 20 pounds to go now

I suppose that was my jump start on losing some pregnancy weight. Not that I would ever choose that on my own.

And praise God it was just a 24 hour virus. The boys were so good; and considering what a maniac Seamus usually is, that is nothing short of a miracle. They didn’t even tear the house up! I had images of things everywhere, things poured on the carpet… But nada.

I swear though, kids can sense when you are getting ready to blow, and it just draws them in. They ignored me all morning – content to watch tv while I stayed in bed, preparing for the inevitable. But as soon as I headed to my throne, I suddenly had an audience and the questions! and the hovering! Then they were content to ignore me again while I recovered.

Today I’m in that weak shaky recovery stage. But I am back in the land of the living.


  1. Love the new fall embellishments that you have on your blog! Someone needs to teach me how to do things like that! :)

  2. I came to your site via the NaBloPoMo and I fell in love with your autumnal masthead. I especially love what it says… There is something so wonderful about coming online and seeing other Believers!

  3. I wish I only had 20 pounds left to lose, too…. sorry about the cause of your weight loss, though – nasty!

    I was up at 1:30 am this morning with Bean (she just had a bad dream or something) and prayed for you… I’m glad to hear you’re better, poor little Mama!

  5. glad you are feeling better my friend. i really love your blog header. it is really appropriate as it links so perfectly with the name of your blog.

    Oh my gosh, I totally know what you mean about kids appearing out of nowhere when the Mama needs to throw up. Why? Isn’t that just the most awful thing?

    I am so glad you are feeling better and I know you must be so thankful that it was a fast-moving bug. Hugs!

    Well, I’m glad you’re feeling a little better. Hoping for a full recovery soon.
