I've been trying ALL DAY to figure out bloglines/blogroll. Can't get either of them to work for me. Arghh. If anyone knows how to do it, could you please let me know? I love to read blogs, but I just don't have the time to click on each link (plus all the ones I haven't linked to yet) to see if there's new stuff. Plus, I feel guilty because Chickadee gets mad when I spend too much time on the computer.

I just put Chickadee to bed and I can hear her coughing up a storm. Went to check and make sure she wasn't puking. She seems fine, but I'm not sure why she's coughing so much.

Has anyone tried Tostitos new flour tortilla chips and/or spinach dip? So damn good. Got them at the store today and am now eating them for dinner. So much for my 1300 calories today! I do really well all day until it comes to night time, then I just can't control myself. Then I have to eat one of these every night, the chip and mint ice cream sundaes from Schwans.
I've been trying really hard to lose some weight, or at least tone up. I've lost 60 pounds since the birth of Chickadee, but my body is just different now. I weigh the same amount that I did when I got married, but I don't look the same. I just wish society wasn't so focused on weight and looks. I wish we could focus more on talents and smarts and personality. I'm just worried about the effects I'll have on Chickadee, and hope that I can be a positive role model for her. I guess to do that, I need to stop bitching about my weight!

So, it's now Monday evening. I had to cut this post short because hubby came home. What a crummy weekend, we fought the entire 3 days, which sucks because he didn't have to work. Instead of enjoying being together, we hid in separate rooms. He came home Friday night and I could tell he'd been drinking. We have issues with this. So I was PISSED, to say the least, and hubby kept saying he wasn't drunk. whatever. If I can tell the moment you walk in the door that you've been drinking, then that qualifies as drunk, or at least someone who shouldn't be driving. I went off on him for that, and he went to bed at 8:30. Saturday rolls around and I try to be civil to him, but all he does is sit on his ass and watch tv. I had borrowed our neighbor's ladder with the intent of taking down our christmas lights (that's right. Christmas lights. In March), since hubby kept saying our little ladder wouldn't work, and he's have to get on the roof and it was always icy, blah blah blah. I have this ladder for him, it's a gorgeous day, but he's still not doing it. I ask him if he just wants me to do it. And he ROLLS HIS EYES like that's not possible. So I went out and took down the damn lights. And you know what? It took me all of 10 minutes. Ggrrr. Later that night he starts looking at the tax forms. The forms I'd been asking him for a month to look at because I was confused and didn't understand them. The forms that I'd been asking him to let me take to H&R or have his sister do. He says to me, "did you even read this?" Oh my hell that pissed me off. And I told him. So again we went to bed mad. And today we went to H&R and got our taxes done! We did finally call a truce yesterday, and even went out to dinner and had an okay time.

Just went on a long walk with Chickadee. I'm exhausted! It got up to about 70 today, so nice, finally. I put her in these darling little striped athletic shorts from Target. They're too big and fall off of her ass, but she just looks so cute. I love this weather. My tulips are coming up, people are starting to hang out in their yards more, I can walk. I also cleaned up all the dog poo in the yard (also hubby's job) that's collected all winter so that Chickadee can play outside. Guess I should go see what she's doing. I stuck Babyeinstein on so I could sit down and type for 10 minutes.
