    is ROUND. I figure it's truly time to do something.

    I've gotten to the point I'm making fat jokes about myself. So I think my self esteem needs a boost.

    I've also come to realize, feeding a man with a furiously high metabolism and 4 growing kids, is really really hard to lose weight.

    I think that the only thing I can do is really, cook myself a separate meal until I hit my goal, and then try to find a balance between the family meal and what I need.

  3. We had the interview...

    I think it went really well. They stayed to visit nearly 2 hours. We played with the kids outside. They met the boys, my kids and 2 parents. They asked lots of questions. Got to see the boys interact with me. So it really went well. They got to see the parents with me too. And the one little boy not want to go home, but stay to play with

    I'm hoping this is it because I'm tired ...

    So I can better plan our meals, and efficiently set up for groceries.


    I have an interview tomorrow. The house is ready for it, my energy levels are good. Hopefully it leads to a second interview with this family and the
  5. Restless... brain overloaded with ideas.

    I can't sleep, my brain is on over drive. Too many ideas rolling around in it.


    Well, dh wants to head out again tomorrow. I don't really feel like it. I have some stuff I want to get done at home.

    So I think I'll go, but come back before everyone else and tackle some tasks. I don't think there'll be much objection I left Sunday morning and have 5 or 6 hours to myself to get ready for the week. Groceries, laundry cleaning etc.
