Boo hoo, there is no weekend this week. And it's Bob's fault. He was acting as shop chief on Friday when it became apparent that the planes would not get fixed, even with a regular weekend duty shift, so he decided to make "everyone" work regular shifts through the weekend. Not exactly everyone, because the real shop chief isn't coming in, and a single mother couldn't get a babysitter, so Bob let her stay home, but it does include Bob working all day Saturday and today. He was hopeful (last night) that they would get Monday off.
Friday night, not knowing what the weekend would hold, we went to get groceries after Bob came hoe from work. That was tiring, as we got home after 9.
Saturday night Bob thought of going back again, to get a movie for him to watch today at work, and I wanted to go again, too, because the commissary was having a case lot sale (two days only), and I wanted some more yarn for my knitting. So we went to the craft store - closed. So we went to the library - closed. So I went to the case lot sale and Bob checked the mail. I bought a case each of 2 kinds of cereal, 2 cases of toilet paper, a case of paper towels, a case of trash bags, one of spaghetti noodles, 4 of green beans, 3 of corn, and a club pack of crackers. It barely fit in the back of the van, and I had fun unpacking it all today, but it will save some money and some trouble in the future.
Today I am doing laundry (more than usual) because Cedwryck has forgotten how to use the toilet, and washing dishes (for some reason the dishwasher didn't get anything clean yesterday), and making barbecue meatballs for dinner.
I ate candy and cookies and ice cream all day yesterday and lost 2 lbs. Really! This morning I weighed in at my lowest so far since ... Well, since William, at least. That makes a total of 17lbs lost since I started keeping track. Not a lot, but slow is best, they say. (Yes, 17 lbs is a lot if you are skinny, but when the total weight loss needs to be oh, 90lbs or more, 17 is just a good start.)
Yesterday we brought in our emergency change of clothes from the car to check if we still have everything, and Taryn's dress barely came to her knees. It's only been 3 months! She is sure growing up.
