Good Morning!

I cannot believe it! I actually was able to get out of bed this morning before Reagan! This is a HUGE feat for me because we co-sleep with her and we usually end up waking each other up! Poor sweetie must have been so tired...in her defense she did have some nightmares last night and woke up crying/screaming a few times.

It makes you wonder what on earth would terrify them in their dreams this early in life? Losing mommy or daddy? Losing her 'baby'? A news bulletin that the manufacturing of yogurt has been declared illegal? ;) I'm kidding on that one..but she does love yogurt!

Anyway, today Reagan is in for a special treat! We are making the hour trek (at
$4/gallon mind you!) to Shipshewana! She'll get to see the horseys, play in the toy store, ride the carousel and watch the miniature electronic 1920s-style puppet show--she loves it! And mommy will get to check out the bulk food store because I've decided we're going to have a small stockpile of food that is healthy in the event of an emergency...and an Amish town has got to be the best place to purchase everything we need! A huge plus to that for me is I'll be doing a lot of walking!

Which leads me to an update on the diet...I've managed to gain weight! Go Figure! I'm so angry with myself! But I have been trying to fit in exercise in our daily schedule and eat a little healthier....my sole consolation is that muscle weighs more than fat..so maybe I'm just gaining muscle from the exercising! LOL! If only I could look like I did in my earlier twenties...legs to die for people...legs. to. die. for. Not even close now! *Sigh*

Alright, enough of the past..I have work to do..Reagan will probably be waking up any minute and I need to get breakfast ready, straighten up the house, pack the diaper bag for a day trip...and, well, all the mommy stuff that needs to be done!

  1. Wow! What a fun day. I wish we had a place near-by that we could visit. We are also starting to stockpile some emergency supplies. A great book to check out - Crisis Preparedness Handbook by Jack Spigarelli. It has lots of tips on what stores best, etc. Anyway, there w/ you on the weight too...Went shorts shopping yesterday (since it has been 100+ here) and it was terrifying! Oh well, I hope you guys have an awesome day! Will look forward to hearing about it soon!
