I just finished reading this book:
and it was awesome! I had such a hard time putting it down even though when Phil's not around, little Xander is usually in my arms. I would try to read it while nursing, a hard-to-maneuver feat for me, but well worth the effort.
We will have to catch the movie once it is released on DVD since going to the movies anytime soon isn't going to happen. I heard that the movie is just as good as the book, which is rare!
Two of Phil's sisters (and one brother-in-law and one nephew) came up to visit this weekend to see Baby X for the first time. While I am so thankful my kids get to see their cousins from my side of the family all.the.time, it's hard for them not being able to see their cousins from Phil's side as they live in MD and PA.
One of the sisters, K, is the one pregnant with twins and while she was up here she started bleeding and had to go to the hospital. They saw the heartbeats on the ultrasound and are just waiting to see what happens next. Please send up a prayer for her (if you don't mind) that her double bundles of joy are safe.
A church near our house hosts Boy Scouts meetings, and my boys seem a bit interested in joining, but I am leery of the whole organization as I remember hearing about problems they had with leaders. Also, Phil and I are Scout dropouts as I survived only one year of Brownies and Phil was only a Cub Scout. What do y'all think? Is it a worthy organization?
And the time has come...for me to join Weight Watchers. They are having a BOGO free month, and this is the plan I used 2 years ago that helped me lose weight really well. Back then, I could only eat 21 points a day and was able to drop 11 pounds in two months. Now, I'll be getting to eat double those points because I'm breastfeeding. I am definitely going to eat all my points because I don't want to mess with my milk supply, but I am skeptical that I will lose any weight while eating that much. We shall see!
