Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

Hi! I have thought about blogging lately, when I'm in the shower or driving. I have lost 4 pounds in 4 days. I've noticed my clothes are baggy and my underwear almost fell off this morning (yes, I know, TMI) Earlier in the week I was down a pound from last week.

Here's what's been going on...I started a job the week before last. It is a job where I am chasing 2 year olds all day. I know I have a lot of physical problems, but, I am being careful and other than feeling like I've worked out with my old psychotic trainer every day (remind me to tell you about him), I'm doing ok. I am exhausted, have already been fighting a cold and some funky cold sore things on my mouth..which, I might uber attractive! Oh, my sentence structure is not proper tonight and I don't care.

I had an A in my math class (I'm glad miracles never cease!) and I'm in my 2nd to last week of it I am quite sure it's no longer an A this week, due to me kind of blowing it off, BAD ME! But, I WILL pass it this time, I failed it last time. I could beat myself profusely for that smooth move. I HATE math. I love math when I understand it, but, I tend to get confused and frustrated very easily. This class is a lot of figuring out formulas, which I've never liked.

I am trying to be positive and keep on going no matter what lately. I've noticed things like awesome clouds, I've appreciated the cooler weather and when we get a nice breeze. I had my oldest daughter with me after work today and she noticed a HUGE rainbow in front of us. I was like a little kid when I saw it!! I thought I saw a hummingbird on the playground at work and was about to freak out with excitement, but, it was a dragon fly. I decided that was cool too! It's the little things with me. lol. I've found the things my 2 year olds do to be amusing too. My family amuses me. My animals amuse me. I amuse myself half the time.

I am EXHAUSTED every day, there's not enough time in the day and the weekends aren't long enough. But, this is good for me and it's yet another learning experience. I will try to update more regularly.

Still Dinah...


  1. So glad to hear an update! And yay on the job :) I remember being so shocked when I had an A in college math too. Weird. It took me ages after high school to learn that I, too, could do math.

    I'm so glad the weather is cooling down. It's been gorgeous out until today's rain fest. So of course this is the weekend when my garage door opener broke and I had to drag in the groceries through the freaking LAKE in my driveway. Oh well. At least I can buy groceries :)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. What a positive attitude!

    I haven't blogged in forever.

    Yay on the 4 pounds!!!!

    Lose a few for me!
