There is no Limit to Bones

Bones bounced in for me to kiss him goodnight. Tonight's underwear of choice is black boxers with skulls wearing Santa hats.

I think his myriad choices of crazy underwear kind of mirrors his personality.

Yes, he has matching shoes for his underwear, little skull and cross bone Vans. I don't think he's realized yet he could wear them as slippers and have that whole matchy matchy skull thing going like he does with his camo underwear and camo slippers.


We've hit a real low again today in the childrearing department, something I won't go into except to say that I think often that parenting is one of the most stressful jobs out there. The constant worry about the present and the future.

Feeling like you're adrift on a broken down inner tube life raft in the ocean.... full of sharks.

But hey, maybe it's just me that feels that way.

Maybe everyone else thinks it's a cakewalk.


My weight loss has tapered off to what I think will be .5 to 1 pound a week which I think is as it should be. Much more than that and I get nervous.

My ankles are smaller. How weird is that?

I also know now for sure that my Rosacea is NOT diet inflicted and now I feel the need to do something about it. Before I thought my diet was doing it and so I didn't care. I thought if I didn't have the self control to change my diet, I would deal with my face.

Now I realize that I have no control and I hate that. I look like I have the measles. So I had my doctor call in a script for a gel for my face. If that can tame it... great. Otherwise, I may go back on oral meds.

I need to do more research.


My sister is coming in town tomorrow on business. We miss the schmoopy and have asked Mo to bring her; I'd take off and babysit, but it's still too much of a hassle.

We're all excited to see her though. Bones is Bones and is already 1000 questions.

It's always nice to have family visit.


BTW, I happen to *know* someone in the movie Valentine's Day *cough*. I need to see it. He doesn't have a speaking part, he plays the Valet at an Indian Restaurant, but he's in a big time movie!

Is this the same dude that was in the Kate Hudson flick????

Same dude! Now he's slumm-ing with some chick named Jessica Biehl, who I found out was NOT in the movie Flashdance...

Maybe Bones' fashion sense will rub off on the schmoopy? That would be funny! :)

I can SOOOOOOOO relate to the leaky inner tube life raft in shark infested waters! And here I thought it was only me! Please pass the water pail...

... congrats to "that guy"!.... hopefully this is a stepping stone!.....

..... and as for Bones and his printed knickers?...... good grief..... I was never into that, but goodness knows the times that I sat with a date while my brother casually strolled through the house in his leopard-skin print bikinis claiming that he was on his way to "lay in the tanning bed"......

....... you are in for quite a ride, I suspect....... good god, quite a ride.......

You never know what part of your body will shrink when you lose weight, I'm finding out. 5 months on this diet, and I still can't see any visible shrinkage around the waistline, though the belt tightening seems to indicate progress is being made.

OTOH, I found my high school class ring while digging through my desk drawer, and it slipped right onto my ring finger, something it hasn't done since the mid 1990's.

Well, I still can't fit in a coach class airline seat, but I have svelte fingers. You gotta start somewhere...

What stuff are you using on your face? I've been using Aczone but I'm not sure I'm hugely impressed. It's beyond wretched to be well over 40 and have bad skin, especially when I never EVER had bad skin as a teenager. It's about time to go back and visit my derma, and she may be putting me on some oral meds too. I just don't know whether any of it's worth it, or if I should just live with the bad skin...
