Not in a good mood

I don't know what's wrong with me... it's like my Seasonal Affective Disorder has kicked in early or something.

I'm moody, down, lethargic, having a very full dreamscape and waking exhausted.

I did have fun on the weekend - going out dancing with some friends while Hubs stayed home with Baby Girl and Little Man but then boom, I'm back to not wanting to get out of bed.


I think I definitely need a new scale though.  I had 216.4 then 214. 6 and then 221 and 218 all within 5 minutes or less.

Well, I guess new batteries might do the trick as well - but whatever - I've got to do something so I have accurate readings.

We had a tornado warning last wk.  I was pretty freaked out since there had been an F3 tornado touch down in a town about an hour from here and there was a lot of damage.

Luckily things didn't get too bad here after all...

Now I remember...

Last night, instead of going to sleep (or having nookie and going to sleep*) Hubs and I cuddled and talked.

It was good because I find a lot of the time - between dealing with the kids and talking about our respective days that we don't always communicate on the deeper level that first attracted me to him.

Then we get caught up in some of the grumpy, day-to-day annoyances (or some issues that seem to be of mammoth proportions) and I wonder how we ever managed to fall in love.

But nights and conversations like last night remind me.

One of the sweetest things Hubs said to me last night was that I am "still a mystery" to him.

He said whether I am looking up something on the internet, or talking about a TV show, or reading or anything that he always feels like there is still more about me to discover and it intrigues him.

Let me say that I have never, ever considered myself any sort of a mystery because I tend to be pretty open, very honest and well-known for being the Queen of TMI amongst my friends.

But it's nice to know that Hubs still feels that way and it's nice to have those types of conversations and even moments that remind me of the more private reasons why I love him.

SO tired!

Just a quick update to say that Rhyme Girl weighed herself before Hubs took her back to her Mom's today and she was 129.6 lbs.

Last time I mentioned her weight on here I believe was in July and she was 135.

And I think she was 134.6 at the beginning of August when she got here.

She was in 30 min swimming lesson classes for 9 days.  We also went swimming one other time.

She drank mostly water and we tried to have healthier food choices for the kids available (even though she and Little Man whined about it) but look what she did.

I wasn't even trying to have her lose weight, I was just trying to show her a way to be healthier and to teach her about portion sizes and such.

Of course then - I have no idea what will happen now that she's back at her mother's.


On the other hand, being back down to two kids in the house means a bit less stress for me and the repair work on the track at the rec centre should be done now so I can do the track with Baby Girl while Little Man is in his next round of swimming lessons.

P.S. I dyed my hair yesterday and had a haircut on Wednesday...

Some recent pics

Working around the photo issues

So the only thing I could come up with was to use some of my other email accounts to author posts on here.

That means you may see posts authored by Fat Angry Blog (old account), Jayne Doe, Synchronistic Catalyst and I'm not sure what my main real-world account would show up as yet, possibly just as Cara-Mae.

And I've also given Hubs the permissions to make posts if necessary.

What else has been going on?

Well, I've been spending time on IRC for the first time in well over a decade. Back in the day a lot of us in the goth scene used to hang out and chat on EFnet #gothic and with a change to FB groups - suddenly ppl started talking about the channel again and it's like an online reunion.

I'm communicating even more with some of the ppl I have real life contact info for, and whom have on my FB.

So it's a lot of fun and it's also meant that I've had to dig up some of my old photos to scan.

The kids are keeping me busy (and driving me nuts!!!)

And that's all I can think of for the moment.

busy and sore

Arms are sore today... workout was at 8 a.m. yesterday with trainer.

Kids are exhausting me. Other parents can be assholes and we saw "The Smurfs" yesterday.

Not a lot to say, mostly because I have a headache and Baby Girl is grumping.

I am alive - I'm just busy :>
