Every night either Tyler or myself reads Anna stories - well, whenever Tyler is home, he reads to her (because he's not home every night due to school) and I read to her the other nights. It is so precious to see the man I love reading to the daughter I love. What more could a wife/mama ask for?
We're still in the process of moving rooms. What's that you say? What's taking so long?? Yeah, well, I had no idea it would take this many days to change rooms but in addition to just moving the furniture that was in the rooms, we are trying to sell a bedroom set, Tyler made shelves in the closets, and we've moved our living room couches upstairs. (FYI - if you come to visit, there's currently nowhere to sit downstairs). We're still looking for a pair of couches to put downstairs. We're looking for an inexpensive but sturdy (preferably TALL) set of sofa/love seat. I hope it won't be long before we find something - my problem is that I don't have a lot of patience, so I need to be careful that I don't just purchase the first thing I see - but wait for the right set. Anyone have some nice couches for sale? (and live in OH?)
Church was wonderful today. Choir practice went extremely well. I'm very impressed with the choir here - they are excellent sight readers. (meaning they can read/learn new choir pieces easily). I really love my ward.
Tomorrow I will begin a renewed effort to return to South Beach Diet phase 1. I've been living it up (food-wise) for the past month or so and I'm positive that I've gained some weight - if not all that I lost last year. It's depressing to think about it, but it's a fact I need to face. I want to implement healthy eating habits for myself and my family. I need all the support I can get. If any of you are pursuing a healthy eating plan for yourself or your family - let me know. We can support and uplift one another. My plan is to be on the SBD phase 1 and exercise 3-5 times a week. I have a yoga tape and will walk outside, if the weather permits. I'm ready to be healthy and I feel optimistic that once I lose a good amount of weight - that we'll finally be able to realize having more children.
Speaking of my reproductive anatomy (now that's a great opening line, eh?), I'm not sure what's going on down there. My period should have started last Sunday. I took a pregnancy test: negative. I've been very regular that past few months - 4 week cycles, to the DAY. So this whole week - no period. With each day my anticipation was growing - could I finally be pregnant?! Was it possible? Yesterday I took another pregnancy test: negative. I still haven't started...it's so hard being a woman.
