Christie, Lately.

Ah, let me just sweep the cobwebs off the ceiling before I let you in...

I know it's been a little while since I blogged. I tend to be sporadic at best these days. I think it's because life has just been so overwhelmingly busy that I tend to push the blog to the side. Really I do think about blogging more but it always gets put into the "Later" pile.

Munchkin and I at the park for a picnic

Dirty Fingers McGee and I have been busy doing all sorts of fun mama-baby goodies lately. We play in the dirt, we go to the park, we finger paint... I fall asleep on the couch while he watches Thomas & Friends.

I'm doing okay on WW; I lost motivation again but I decided that I must just need more support and encouragement so I started posting on the WW boards. This is unusual for me, as I tend to be a lurker when it comes to message boards. There are just too many stupid people and I weep for humanity when I read them, but a lot of the boards at WW are all about encouragement, celebrating success, and picking each other back up.

I definitely need that last one.

I haven't gained any weight (phew!) but I haven't lost any in a few weeks either.

I went to the gym for the first time in about 2 weeks last night. I spent an hour there, running on the elliptical and lifting weights. I am very sore today.

Last week was really hectic. Drake developed a lung infection. I guess it's been going around, or so the dr said. Luckily we got an antibiotic and some cough syrup so things are better. His coughs are violent sounding now, but I can tell the bacterial infection is clearing up. He is producing mucus now, which is good. I hope it goes away soon though. It breaks my heart to watch him cough so hard.

Brian's on shutdown starting the end of this week. They are having a 3 week shut down at the factory and that is going to be nice. He won't go back to work until July 15. During that time we are having a birthday party for him (his birthday is on the 25th, but the party will be the 22nd) and we are going to Chicago on the 29th. We are also going to the zoo to meet up with one of my best friends from high school the first weekend of July. THEN we are also going to fit a visit to Brian's grandparents in some time as well as a garage sale at my parents' house. Lots to do!

Look at the water! LOOK AT IT!!

We also took a trip to the zoo a week or two ago. Drake didn't care much for the animals. He liked the aquarium and this play fountain.

I've been much better about taking pictures of myself and my family lately, those two pics are just an example of the beauty my camera has caught.

I planted a garden. Tomatoes, green bell peppers, and strawberries. The tomatoes and the peppers are sprouting. We will see what happens with the strawberries.

Tiny garden for the novice gardener.

So, yeah. Life lately. Pretty good.
