Like I said, I’m on my third week of work at my new preschool. I get to do my Transitions Training twice a week now, and we’ve been swimming a lot. Working makes it really hard for me to over eat. I have to take my lunch and that’s what I have, period. We’ve made several Shirley J recipes, and I’ve been trying really hard not to eat after 8pm. Big things are coming up. Much of my family from California will be visiting at the end of the month. Then we’ve got barbeque season and then US going to California next month. We’re trying to figure out the cheapest option for a place to stay that has a kitchen so we can cook a majority of our meals.
308…SNAP! I’m like 2 freaking lbs from being 50lbs down!!!!

"Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake."

So about the miscarriage post, Hubs and I are having very, VERY realistic talks about planning our next child. I’m very proud of my progress, and the thought of losing it to another pregnancy does not deter me. But I am pretty scared to death about having another miscarriage…

A miscarriage is a natural and common event. All told, probably more women have lost a child from this world than haven’t. Most don’t mention it, and they go on from day to day as if it hadn’t happened, so people imagine a woman in this situation never really knew or loved what she had.
But ask her sometime: how old would your child be now? And she’ll know."

"Don’t rationalise away future happiness by taking shortcuts instead of applying sound gospel principles. Remember: little things lead to big things. Seemingly insignificant indiscretions or neglect can lead to big problems. More importantly, simple, consistent, good habits lead to a life full of bountiful blessings."
