I went dark for a few days. I was visiting a few friends who recently had babies or are pregnant. The crew is starting to to get bigger! Travelling a few hours in a car with an 11 month old is an experience. Under the circumstances, CE was wonderful, but I was freakin exhausted by the time I got home. Bag of clothes, bag of food, bag of toys, pack and play, portable high chair. Lugging all that shit in and out of my car was manual labor. I crashed as soon as I got home. It was great to see the girls and all the babies.
Then my copy of Bethenny Frankel's book Naturally Thin came in and every free second I have had, I have my nose in it. It's creating quite an Ah-ha moment for me and the way I view food. I am only on page 75, but so far I am with her.
Can I just say one more thing about the Real Housewives of New Jersey? I caught a repeat of the episode the other day. That chick, Danielle? You know the one that is trying to meet up with a guy who calls himself "Gucci Model" online? That's a wise decision. Anyway, I am thinking she might need to introduce the word tankini into her vocabulary. I am all about showing off your assets, more or less. She is a 46 year old woman in great shape for having kids.
That being said, you know when someone has a baby and the skin on their belly stretches a little, sometimes making their belly button droop slightly? Sorry if there are any men out there reading this that are now scarred for life or women out there reading this over and over as a birth control method.
