So, I started going back to the gym this week. And, lemme tell you, I am sore! Monday wasn't so bad, it actually felt good to do 35 minutes on the elliptical machine. Then I did some of those "twisty" exercises (100 each side!) and I am still sore today. I tried to get on that machine again yesterday but could only do 20 each side. I'm determined to at least get down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I have another 15 lbs to go.
Brannan had his 4-month check-up yesterday. He got another round of shots too. He was not very happy with those shots. He did the usual crying at the doctors office, but once I got him off the table and hugged him, he was ok. I took him to day care and told them that he just had his shots. Ironically enough, BOTH Grandma and Pappy visited him at different times of the day at daycare. He was a little fussy and grumpy and tired. I took him home, he slept on the way home, and Daddy played with him for a while when I went to the gym. I guess he got cranky and fussy while I was gone and sort of passed out in his buzzy seat at 7.
We put him to bed early and he slept off his shots - poor little guy!

TGIF again

Well, here we are, another Friday night. I'm not sure where Daddy is. He isn't answering his cell phone. I kinda wish he'd answer his cell phone, even if it was to tell me to leave him alone so he could have fun tonight. I just get all these worried emotions and it makes me kinda sick. Not nearly as sick as I used to get, but still, I just wish he'd check in. Well, whatever.

I've also been checking my work email - just in case something went on that I need to worry about. All of the "execs" were out for the week, so it was my duty to do the obligatory worrying for the week. I'm glad I don't have to do it all of the time - that's for sure!

So, here's a funny picture of Brannan at the little Kiwanis Park Lake. It looks like he's lounging pretty snugly. So carefree. Geez, if only we could go back to those days.


Today is Friday. Nice. I can't wait until 4:30 when i can get out of this cubicle.

Anyway, I'm finally getting over my 14-day cold. It has been terrible. It started with a head cold, then went on to a terrible coughing-only cold. Then it went back to the head cold. I woke up this morning still a little stuffy, but a little better. Seeing Brannan's smiling face this morning made the day a lot brighter. I can't wait to get home and hang out with him!
