Smooth Sailing

Hello my precious kittens.  I haven't done much of an update in awhile, so I thought I'd update ya.

Although, wellllll, I don't really have much to update you on!  Doesn't it seem like there's more to say when you're not doing well, than when things seem to be pretty neutral and mild and okey dokey?  And that's kind of a shame, actually, but I'll do my best to try to come up with a few somethings.

My V Day was da raddest.  Brandon and I had already bought our gifts for each other a few weeks ago, so we mostly spent the night just laughing and talking and being with each other.  We had no babysitter, so we stayed home with the kiddos, but it was really fun anyway.  I made him a candybar poster, which is like a blast from junior high past, but he loved it, and I had fun making it.  :)  I love my man and I'm glad that I had yesterday to shower him with kisses and love to make sure he knows it.  :)

Remember when I blogged not long ago about Cade throwing a tantrum at soccer and we had to leave early and blah blah?  Well, when we took him to soccer this week, I was really nervous we were going to have a repeat situation, but we didn't at all!  He played and...wait for it...
I know that to most of you, this doesn't seem like a big deal, and maybe it only is to me because Cade's my son and I rather adore him, but him scoring that goal was SUCH a huge deal, and it made him so happy and gave him so much confidence.  When he scored the goal I screamed so loud that I woke up poor Mila in her carseat, but I don't even care, it was worth it!  So, to go from one week having him refusing to play and throwing the tantrum to end all tantrums, and then him going back a week later and not only playing, but scoring a goal?  AWESOME.  The kid is making progress, and that thrills me.  :)

I have been doing pretty okay the past couple weeks.  Nothing much to report on, either good or bad.  I'm just kinda makin it through my days with not much stress or anxiety, so I'm really happy for that.  Getting our family pics taken on Saturday was so much fun, and I can't wait until we get them back.  I am still doing well with ED stuff, which is great.  I saw my dietician today and we talked about my lack of motivation and what to do about it, but I'm going to save that for tomorrow's post, since it will be a bit longer than just a short paragraph.

So, all in all, things are okay.  And I'm glad.  :)

Awwww, I'm so glad he scored a goal. Seeing them smile after something like that is the best. I can just see you screaming and waking up Mila, haha.
