A few things about my Monday

I was sitting in our recliner, holding Gabriel, and I heard Sarah giggling. She ran up to me and handed over two large blocks. I took them and said, "Thank you!" but then noticed that they were dripping wet. I looked at her and asked, "Why are these wet, Sarah?" She just smiled.

Then Caleb informed me, "Mommy! Those are the ones she dropped in the toilet!"

Yeah. Lovely.

Caleb, Sarah, and Josh were playing on the floor tonight, and I guess Caleb was getting hot from running around Daddy and jumping on him. He decided to take his shirt off which he's never really done before (never taken it off because he was "hot"). A few seconds later he lifted up his arm and joyfully exclaimed, "Daddy! Smell my arm pit! Come on! Smell it!"

I about died laughing. I have no idea where he got this phrase or concept!

Report on my goals. I ended up having two, 12-ounce cans of Pepsi today. I must say that 24 ounces is a far cry better than the 42-ounce soda I always get from McDonald's or the 44-ounce drink at Sonic (and often, I'd get both in the same day, so you can see this is still a victory for me). I DID NOT GO TO MCDONALD'S! I sure wanted to, though. I had two opportunities today, and I passed it up. Thanks for encouraging me, Josh.

Good job! You know, your goal could be to reduce the amount of times you have a soda, and I think its so positive that you aren't down on yourself today, but that you are celebrating a small victory!

Yay for you!! And as far as praying about weight loss (you mentioned this an entry or two ago), I believe it's the same as praying for help with any other thing that damages our temples. Be it alcoholism, drugs, or overeating, they are all issues of self-control and all tear down our bodies. :-)
