If it weren't for my kids, I'd be thin!

Kid #1 left his backpack at gymnastics. I've already driven the drive once (plus dropping his teammate off at home) and now I get to do it again.

Kid #2 is seemingly incapable of focusing on his homework. And I can't be here to help, because I'm driving in circles from Rocklin to Loomis.

(Tim is in Las Vegas for work. He is not in trouble.)

Is it any wonder that my best friend right now is the bowl of Peanut M&M's?

Perhaps I need to revisit John Berardi's first rule of good nutrition: It it's in your house, you will eat it! And I don't even LIKE Peanut M&M's! But I'm grabbin' a few more for the drive.

You don't even like Peanut M&M's?!?!? What's wrong with you? Just Kidding, but you've got to be the first person I've ever heard of that doesn't like them. Funny how that kid stress always sends you straight for the junk.

I'm like that at work! My boss has a giant jar FULL of peanut m&ms... Not my candy of choice, but they're so colorful and inviting. Sheesh! I started paying into a cup a quater every time I eat off plan. It does work.

Just checking in with you. Yes... those M&Ms must go or you will eat them up!!!

Your hair looks cute in pigtails. I just got back from skiing last weekend in Vail. I wore my hair in the Laura Ingals style braids all weekend. Where do you ski/board?

Take care!

Keep doing what you're doing Leslie, you're doing brilliantly.

Best wishes :-) :-).

I'll be happy to get those off your hands ;)

Well, at least you can afford some sweets like that every once in awhile.

Oh, those pigtails are cute on you! I can not get over that you are 47 though!! Holy Smokes girlfriend, you look like your in your early 30's! Wow, you make teen girls jealous!!

Hope your day gets better and you have a great week.

That excellent opportunity to listen to more of your Eat Pray Love audiobook. Kid(s) in the what? Listen anyway.
