TGIF

I've not been feeling very well the past couple days, and I've gotten absolutely nothing done. As soon as Elsie goes down for a nap, I get right into my bed. It's not that I couldn't do something productive, I just haven't wanted to. I'm very good at making excuses in my head. No big deal, though. I can't imagine there's anything that needs to be done today. I'm just really glad it's Friday, and Aaron will be around to hang out with. It's been a rough week.

The other thing is that Elsie has decided that she doesn't need long naps anymore. This morning she only slept for 45 minutes, and this afternoon isn't looking much better. Maybe it's because she's getting a little older. It's only been about a month that we've really got the nap thing down, and now she's already over it. What's up?! (Oh, there she is grunting in her crib...I'll be back.)

Well, Aaron and I are going to start a diet on Monday. (Famous words...I know.) But, we really are. I did Weight Watchers a few years ago and had a lot of success with it, but I was not very fun to be around according to Aaron. I want to do it again because I totally need structure when it comes to dieting. Aaron thinks we can just "eat better" and we'll be fine. That doesn't happen with us, though. We can always find a way to justify things. Anyway, I think I'm going to break down and do WW except for when we are on vacation. That's just too hard! We'll see how it goes. If I don't talk about it, that means I'm sucking!

My cute Elsie picture of the day: I've been waiting all summer for her to fit into this outfit! The waist on many of her clothes has been too big, but she's finally starting to chunk up a bit. I fear she may be doomed with my pear-shaped body...not a large waist, but a butt/thighs that don't stop. Sorry Elsie! She pulls it off much better than I do. =)

WHAT A CUTE PICTURE. SORRY ABOUT THE NAP THING....THAT ISN'T COOL. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE A TALK WITH ELSIE AND TELL HER HOW COOL NAPS ARE.

I'm totally loving this picture! The nap issue really sucks...but you were never a big napper either, and as I recall, still aren't! She may just be going through a phase. Don't give up trying to get her to nap. It is sometimes your salvation...if only for a little while.

I FINALLY got internet!!!! I feel like a whole new person. Anyways, I was excited to finally check out your blog. Sorry to hear about the nap thing. Why is it that kids don't realize how wonderful naps are? I would love it if I could take a nap everyday.
