Problem 1: I need to create a budget. Granted we just moved so expenses are a bit higher than usual (seriously, that first grocery bill is a killer), but I'm thinking I need to just get on it. If you use a budget, how do you do it (Quicken? Excel? Back of your kid's coloring books?) and if so, how the hell do you stop from having to go to the supermarket three times a week? (I know. Meal planning. I loathe it. But am willing to do it. Just need help).
Problem 2: I need to lose 20lbs. I realize this may not happen because I just moved and I'm running around like a nut with no working dryer yet (it's plugged in but all it does is toss my wet clothes around). There's a gym in my neighborhood that has a kid's room -- so I can actually go, use the treadmill, and they can play! When it's not so hot, I can walk outside as well. And I know I'll have to put down the ice cream, just drink water, you know, all that
crap wonderful lose weight stuff. Any other suggestions?
Problem 3: So, I'm feeling the ovarian rumblings. I don't remember these from my daughter. I've been tired, cranky, bloated, gassy, exhausted, weirdly hungry, icky, and bitchy. I got my period back with her the night before her first birthday party. At the beach. TOTALLY no warning.
Before we moved, I took a pregnancy test because, you know, why not spend $14 on a stick, right? and it was negative. But now I'm wondering if it's possible that I'm pregnant or my body is getting ready to have my blessed period again. My boobs don't hurt, my son is nursing fine again, and I haven't had any weird nose or gum bleeds (typically a sign for me). BUT, I have been peeing a lot and did I mention I'm tired. Of course, my son isn't sleeping that great either. And yes, I know. Test again. I will. But let's have fun and speculate til we're blue in the face, shall we?
So, care to bestow your wisdom upon me?
