Sleepover With Air Quotes

My two favorite sweeties came for a sleepover last night. The house was destroyed but we had so much fun. I'm still finding popcorn around the house in places popcorn should never be. The best part was that the girls got along with each other. Sometimes they have a Garfield and Nermal type of relationship but last night, Stretch was a helpful and kind big sis and DollFace was sweet and funny. Stretch has taught DollFace to use air quotes. It was hilarious when she used them to say "You can't catch me!" and then took off running.

It tugged at my heartstrings to read with them and say their prayers and kiss them goodnight. I imagine this would be my favorite time of day if I were to have a child of my own.

Eight and a half more days of school...not that I'm counting or anything. I'll really be relieved when this week is over. I start my new graduate class which meets two times a week and I have a late summer school meeting. Three very long days in a row.

I want to use this extended wait time I have to wage war on my fat. For the next week it's all about portion control. I'll have no time to plan or cook meals so I'm going to focus on eating normal portions and eating only when I'm hungry. This may become a weight loss blog temporarily.

It may be pretty boring around the old blog for a while. I hope you'll settle in with me for the wait. I could use the company.


  1. Sounds like a good time you had with the girls. I have some moments during the day that I think will be my favorite with my own child too. Gah! Moving on...

    Good luck with your food endeavors. I'll be reading.

  2. Hang in there. I hope the next couple of weeks goes well.

  3. I had the same idea about using this wait time to lose some weight & started working out again...great stress relief.

    I'm in it with ya for the duration!

  4. I'm here with you! And glad you had such a good time with the girls [and your time WILL come. you will have such time with your kid/s!].

  5. I completely understand the portion control battle. I eat it because it's there, not because I'm hungry!

    I know you can do this!

  6. what sweet memories with them! I am also focusing on portions this week. And HEALTHY! No processed foods at all! I am also going to do 30 minutes of walking ever single day. no matter what!good luck to you - good luck to me!

  7. Love it you are painting them tonight! Tomorrow you will feel so pretty!
