rm - oh no! i can't imagine how that family is suffering
wendy - i replied to your other thread. good luck figuring out the pee thing.
we love baby joggers - so smooth and well-built. wish i had a high metab, but unfortunately not...
flitters - awesome pics, thanks for posting! cracking up over G eating sand... i swear he has a gizzard hidden somewhere. he's just starting to put fewer things in his mouth, thank goodness. let's get together to run again soon!!
doctorjen - i got my diva from www.abbyslane.com
- super helpful wahm with quick free shipping
cherylann - thanks for asking about my dad. amazingly, physically, he only had a few cuts and bruises, despite the fact that his truck rolled several times and landed upside down with the roof partially collapsed in the middle! psychologically, i think he's a bit freaked out about driving, though he's quite a trooper. i sort of agree about travel advisories, but everyone i've talked to has said that the mexico side of the tex-mex border is terrible right now, mostly due to drug gangs (obviously a result of our ineffective "drug war", but i digress). and unfortunatly, since i'm not fluent in spanish and g and i are both blonde/blue, it's pretty impossible for us to "blend in." plus, i'm realizing that i'm a bit overprotective. i want my kids to experience adventures that will broaden their horizons, but i fear for their safety.... for some reason i'm less freaked out about sporting kinds of dangers than other *people* hurting my kids. i just kept having fears of g being kidnapped for ransom (one of the things apparently happening according to the travel advisory). otoh, we've probably driven in parts of detroit and sf that are less safe... oh well. hopefully my dad will be back safe and soon - my stepmom is thankfully going down to help him.
e was looking at a random magazine this a.m. with a pic of a guy sitting on a weight bench, which inspired me to think of lifting weights. so i stationary biked a little (reading in an old issue of some cheesy star mag about how thrilled brittany s was to be having a second scheduled c-section
and lifted with dh this afternoon. bizzarely, it was kind of romantic, because the summer we met we used to meet in the a.m. to lift. i felt kind of self-conscious lifting in the student (and faculty) gym, but i probably shouldn't - students should realize it's okay for faculty to be in shape! i will definitely be sore tomorrow!
also had an interesting shopping experience - i've finally shrunk out of all my old pants (YAY!). didn't have any trouble finding jeans that fit, but went this a.m. to try on slacks. it's funny, because i used to think i had to try on a million pairs of pants before finding ones that fit because i was too fat. but now i've lost a ton of weight and still have to try on a million pairs, just in smaller sizes. any suggestions of low waist, boot cut, long length slacks that are curvy up top? i find that most low waist boot cut pants are too small in the butt and too big in the waist... sorry for asking a trivial question, but i'm a bit fashion ignorant...
