Fill Effects and Great Kids

I had a small fill on Monday and so far am not sure if I feel much different. My weight is down slightly (< half a pound) so will have to wait and see. This morning I decided to get an egg and toast from the cafeteria at work. I was eating with one of my co-workers and started to feel a bit stuck so stopped eating and began chatting like crazy so he wouldn't notice me not eating (this is normal for me!). When I looked at my plate I realized I had scarfed half a piece of the toast without thinking. After a minute or two I was able to finish most of the egg and another bit of toast but chewed it to pulp. I usually don't eat so early in the morning but wanted to try some solids. I find breakfast hard to figure out because I get ravenous by 10:30 in the morning if I only eat a bit of oatmeal or a protein shake. We'll see if this keeps me satisfied for 4 hours.

Last night my hubby and I went to a local pub. Of course the food there sucks so I started on a pint of beer. Yeah! I can drink beer again (hmmm—maybe that's why my weight isn't down much). I ordered a bowl of taco soup and an order of sweet potato fries. The server came back to say they only had a half order of fries left, but they will make them for me and not charge me. Another karma moment. I really only wanted half an order and was going to make hubby eat most of them anyway. So I got my small taste and didn't have to pay for them. Yeah again.

I have been keeping up with many blogs this week even if I haven't commented too much. But I am worried. I haven't seen many funny posts, you know the ones that have you spitting water out the nose. I am getting a bit down and need some cheering up, so come on guys, I need my daily laugh. I know you can do it! Let's get our funny on.

I had never heard of Cinco de Mayo that everyone was talking about yesterday but am always up for a good party. We can make anyday a celebration. This Sunday is Mother's Day in Canada (always the 2nd Sunday of May) for those wondering. Not sure what we will be doing that day, but my daughter (braveheart) did leave me a lovely comment on one of my posts, so I am posting it for everyone to see.

"To all those who follow my mom and are BOOBs (I love that acronym btw), congratulations on your journey. It is a choice that was most likely hard to make, but once you commit to something (whether banding or another option), you must stick with it and draw inspiration from those around you to stay committed. I hope my mom is one of those people for you, I know she is for me."

I have great kids! Which means, I don't need to get a card because that comment was better than any Hallmark. Sometimes Mother's Day is also a day to appreciate the good in our kids. They got there because of us. Although I did call her and ask her if she really meant it! Her answer was yes, so it made my day.

Oh Sandy, you just said you wanted a funny post and than you posted what your daughter wrote and I cried! So not fair! That was a beautiful comment and I agree, she is off the hook for a Mothers day card because Hallmark could not have said it better!

This Sunday is our Mothers Day also and my daughters will be spending it with my mother and my sister in NY while I am in Florida! My daughters will be here with me for a week at the end of the month and my oldest told me not to get upset about this Sunday because everyday is Mothers Day to her so it didn't matter! I've got a couple of good ones too!

We are both very lucky (and soon to be thinner)!

Children can be so wonderful!

I'm trying to get funnier... it really does seem like things have been down across the board... hopefully we are ALL on the upswing! For everyones sake!

Awwww...that made me all teary eyed. What a wonderful daughter you have. Yay BOOBs!!!

I've noticed that too (lack of funny posts) - we all go through the same emotions at the same time on here. I bet we are all on the same TOTM too.

Ok Funnie? Let me see, I am going to tan my bellie before surgery, I guess if everyone is going to look at it it should be tan, right.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH! That is so sweet, Sandy Lee. Good job, Mom! Cinco de Mayo is actually a very minor Mexican holiday that we Gringos have totally stolen and twisted for our own maniacal purposes! Mostly it is an excuse to get drunk and go out to Mexican food.

You should be so proud - what a good girl!!

Okay, I don't have a funny post, but here's a joke for you.

Two women friends had gone out for a Girls Night Out, and had been decidedly over-enthusiastic on the cocktails. Incredibly drunk and walking home they suddenly realized they both needed to pee. They were very near a graveyard and one of them suggested they do their business behind a headstone or something. The first woman had nothing to wipe with so she took off her panties, used them and threw them away. Her friend however was wearing an expensive underwear set and didn't want to ruin hers, but was lucky enough to salvage a large ribbon from a wreath that was on a grave and proceeded to wipe herself with it. After finishing, they made their way home.

The next day the first woman's husband phones the other husband and said, "These damn girls nights out have got to stop. My wife came home last night without her panties." "That's nothing," said the other. "Mine came back with a sympathy card stuck between the cheeks of her butt that said, 'From all of us at the Fire Station, Well never forget you!'

What a sweet note from your daughter! That's why we have kids right?

i agree with the funny posts. I haven't had a lot to be funny about this week...my life is more like a Greek tragedy these days!! So I count on you to make me laugh!
