On the bright side, I bought C and M's Thanksgiving outfits today. They are going to look perfect.
I own ZERO articles of clothing from Gap, don't much like their style for me. However, the majority of my children's wardrobe is from Gap Kids. Weird?
My Diet Coke consumption is increasing at a dramatic rate. I stopped drinking it (or had caffeine-free) when I was pregnant and nursing, but now that no little parasite depends on my body for anything, I am filling it with the sweet, sweet nectar of aspartame and carbonation. I need to tone it down!
I am mostly only posting this today because I didn't want my last blog at the top of the page anymore. I get nervous and weird when I post about my eating disorder now.
I love my kids. I am realzing more and more that my calling in this big 'ol world is to be a good mama to my children. I know this sounds so incredibly after-school-television-special, but when I see them happy and safe and content, it makes me feel better. Like all is right in the world.
I am debating on going Black Friday shopping or not. I go every year, but now I'm wondering if the cost of staying up all night and elbowing my way past hysterical women clutching this season's hottest items is worth the benefit for saving a few bucks. Plus, I have no one to go with. :( Any brave takers?
I have joined Twitter (again) with a little trepidation - last time I used it, I didn't like it much and honestly found all the tweets somewhat annoying. But I'm more or less liking it this time around. Find me by @briebreivik or there is a link to my profile page as well on my side-bar.
Breaking Dawn. The broken headboard and feathers. The bony (but obviously fake) grossness of Kristen Stewart. The wolves talking in robot voices to each other. All parts of the movie that were supposed to be serious, but in which I roared so hard I was practically rolling in the aisles.
Mila is almost 4 months old. It's so weird to think she is that old. Kind of brings back bitter memories, too, because I left Cade to go to inpatient treatment exactly on his 4 month birthday. It sickens me that I let my eating disorder get so severe that I literally had to leave my own child. It serves as a good reminder to keep myself healthy at the present because I NEVER want to do that to Mila, and I don't know what Cade would do if I had to leave him again. Nuh uh no way never.
My iPad is still awesome.
