05/07/2005 Entry: "My Bachelorette Days Are Over"
THANK GOODNESS!! Clint came home last night The girls and I picked him up at the airport yesterday at 5:00 p.m. Abbie and Megan were like magnets to him. I had to carry his bags and he had one girl in each arm. It was the sweetest thing. He was even all teary and barely able to speak when he saw us all standing there. It was awesome. We had a nice dinner all together after we left the airport, and spent some family time here last night, the girls got all their surprises from Texas, and it was just an awesome night together.
Today we spent outside almost the entire day. I literally did more than 6 hours straight outside, digging holes for new trees we got for the yard. We put in 4 new trees, and it consisted of Clint mowing the lawn and I dug the holes for every single tree, then emptied that dirt from the trailer into low spots in the yard, then shoveling new top soil from the pile and onto the trailer, putting the tree in its hole and shoveling the new top soil around it. I also push-mowed around everything in the yard to help Clint out, before I did the trees.
We had breakfast at 8:30 a.m. this morning and it's now almost 8:00 p.m. and he and I haven't eaten since then. STARVING.
I forgot to weigh in this morning, so I may have had a little better of a weigh-in if I would have, but I weighed in tonight and I am still down 2 lbs. I am very happy about that still
I have yet to get to work out on my body ball. It keeps giving me the 'eye'...not sure if it's because it's still 'nameless' or if because I blew her all up and haven't used her. The girls have had more fun with her than I have. They love it. Meggie even tells Clint as she lays on the floor 'you have to put your hands like THIS' and proceeds to tuck her hands behind her head like any pro sit-up queen would, while she puts her barely able to reach feet up on the ball.
So that's it for me. We bought 'National Treasure' last night on DVD, so I'm running to the store for a couple of things Clint wants for breakfast tomorrow and then when I get back we are going to order pizza and watch the movie and maybe have a teeny sliver of the Dairy Queen ice cream cake that we welcomed Clint home with. I burned enough calories today to have a treat I think Ice cream ALWAYS makes sore muscles feel better, right?? RIGHT???

Hi Lisa...so glad Clint made it back safe and sound. I can't imagine how hard it was, I know how difficult it was not having my husband around during our move. We lived in one town and he was 2 hours away..we only saw each other on weekends. Very lonely.
Ron and I went out last night and we stopped in at the health food store and checked out the CLA's. I was a bit taken back by the sticker price but Ron didn't bat an eye and bought it for me. We are both going to try it for a month and see how it goes...in the mean time I am going to see if I can find it cheaper than $24.99.
Happy Mother's Day sweetie!
