I am trying to get back on the eating healthy bandwagon, but it is really tough. I think about chocolate approximately every 30 seconds throughout the day. And I have been craving Coca Cola Classic too. Caffeine and sugar are hard habits to kick!

Izzy's rash is completely healed. None of the creams or lotions seemed to help his irritated skin. It was a slow recovery, but he looks great now.

Porgie has become obsessed with the beach. This morning she kept talking about going swimming and playing in the sand. We had the following conversation...

Porgie - "Go swimming?"
Me - "We have to wait until summer."
Porgie - "We go to summer?"

So now instead of asking to go swimming, she asks to go to summer. How to you explain the concepts of time and season to a 2 year old?

I have been looking for a grey shower curtain, and I am convinced that they do not exist. I have been to Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Sears, Kmart, and Lowes. No-one has a grey shower curtain. Am I the only person in the world who likes the color grey?

Does anyone like Big Love? I obsessed with it, but I no longer have HBO. DAMN IT! So, I have to wait until season 3 comes out on DVD. The suspense is killing me.

You wrote coca cola and my mouth started watering and my desire for a coke sky rocketed. Do your posts contain some kind of hidden messages?

What timing! Seriously... have you read my latest post? I about lost it earlier thinking about the whole diet thing... right after I posted that. My dr didn't explain it to me back when I was diagnosed, so the more I look into it the more I'm learning that... well.. no wonder I had so much trouble before! Its daunting though.... Part of me hopes I just get pg again soon in hopes that it goes away like last time lol.

That's great about Izzy! And funny about Porgie... So cute...

I like grey too... but haven't ever looked for a shower curtain in it.

It's supposed to be 90 this weekend - you could car trip it to the shore? But the water would be freezing!

look online for grey shower curtains. :)

and no fair on the Coke mention. Am I the only person who calls it Coke?

Do you have iTunes? I think you can download the episodes one by one as they air for like $1.99 each. That is what I do when I get obsessed with a show... and I AM obsessed with Big Love. Haven't watched season 3 yet though!

I am SERIOUSLY thinking about a trip to the shore this weekend. We could meet up in Strathmere (Whale Beach) and the kiddies could throw sand at each other. Will likes to chase the "eagles" around.

A long time ago we bought my aunt a grey/black shower curtain that was really nice from Big Lots?

I have been horrible on the sugar. Tsk tsk. I FEEL your pain right now, I really do. I polished off a bag of tootsies, er twice in the past two Wednesday's... grrr. There's more, but I'll spare myself the shame.

Last but not least, try the library. We read LOTS of books on seasons and we have some games and folders from my Gramma like what activities go in each one and stuff. My daughter doesn't get it. But my son totally does.

I like Big Love - but i have to confess that I've only seen the first season.

I also have a gray shower curtain if you want it. It wasn't gray when I bought it but, you know, details...

I suck at sticking to a diet plan and keeping away from all things sweet.

You should try E-Bay. When all else fails I hit them up and usually find what I'm looking for at a great price. Good luck

I love Big Love too!
I have to wait for another DVD to come out here too!
Good luck with the shower curtain,
love and hugs Tabitha XXX

We LOVE Big Love. We don't have HBO... we wait and rent it on Netflix.
