Total me Monday

Finally, it’s Monday!

Pookah is well!!! SO well in fact that he was shipped off to daycare this morning with much fuss( from him of course).  Seems he has gotten used to being up under his mother for the last week.

My birthday came and went.  I actually turned to my husband and said,

“this has been the shittiest birthday ever.”

The day started with groaning from Pookah.  Turns out, his temp was 104.6.  How he remains in his right mind is beyond me.  But after a visit to the ER the day before and a useless visit to the pediatrician, the day before that: I was done.

We were waiting at the Pediatricians office when they opened.

After testing( blood, throat swabs) diagnosis: tonsillitis.

and finally, Antibiotics.

So I spent my day tending to the sick and the lazy.  C-Dub had taken the day off because we were supposed to be having an adult only lunch at an expensive restaurant that I’ve always wanted to go to.


On top of that, no gifts seemed to be in sight.

Needless to say, I was not happy.

I thought the day was improving when C-Dub went out and got carry out Red Lobster.( yeah sad)

But nooooo.  Pookah refused to go to sleep.  Refused to let me put him down. FOR TWO HOURS.

So by the time I ate( lukewarm seafood), I just wanted the bed.

CDub picks 1145 pm to give me my gifts: a plant( pretty, but I’ll probably kill it in a week) and a gift card for a massage.

And then, at 1150, bugs me for “birthday”  sex.


Isn’t it my birthday?????????

On Saturday, I woke up and decided to clean out MY closet.

Yeah, I got rid of 3/4 of the clothes in my closet, and now I need a new wardrobe.

But the moment of the day came when C-Dub says casually….

“I put some money in your account. I thought you might want that phone you’ve been talking about.”


After mucho kisses, I rushed off to the Verizon store and purchased my iphone.

It is glorious.  So glorious that I’m going to have to devote a whole post to it.

Pookah was feeling much better by Sunday, so we went to the Dogwood Festival here in ATL.

It was crowded(as usual) and we got there at the end, but Pookah had fun!




I was surprised that I managed not to overeat this week.  I didn’t get to exercise due to not being able to leave Pookah, but all in all I think I did OK.

I dropped South Beach, and moved on to retrying Weight Watchers.  But it’s so inconvenient to have to try to figure out points. And to track foods.  I do have a nifty little app for that on my iphone( snicker) but the database isn’t that big.

So I picked up another app that tracks calories and exercise, and it’s MUCH better.

So I have to decide if I’m going to continue with weight watchers or use my cute new app.


I’ve got to go do all the things that I didn’t get to do last week( clean,shop etc)  I’ll talk to you guys later!

    Yay for your new iPhone!! Yay for the Pookah feeling better!
    The new WW is somewhat intimidating to me. I am a Lifetime Member (I get a pass for nursing, not quite at my goal weight yet) so I still weigh-in each month, but have not committed to the plan. I do love the fact that fruits are now 0 points. I miss the little slider scale, I’m not feeling the calculator :-/
