'morning ladies. Rough start here. We went out last night to have dinner with some new acquaintances at their home -- there were a bunch of kids and E had a blast! He went to bed about an hour late and of course woke up at 4:15am, refusing to go back down again.
I didn't manage to fall asleep until like 2:30am.
It's going to be a LONG day. Thank goodness a sitter (not THE sitter -- our back-up) is coming. I wish I could take advantage and nap but I've got too much work to do. Maybe I'll be SO productive this AM I can snooze a bit later?

Potty training fail. Did I already tell you guys about this? So. tired.
E started pooping in his diaper again even though he was telling us he needed to go -- he just wouldn't sit on the potty. So I decided it would be a good idea to let him play a Endless Alphabet on the potty to make the time more fun and get him to ask for it.
Now he sits on his potty and plays FOREVER and doesn't even pee he's so wrapped up in the game.

Just thinking about how I don't want breakfast this morning bc I just went through my head a list of all the bad food I ate since Friday. I probably gained every lb I had lost. It was nice to hear my mom comment on my weight loss since she's always telling me I'm fat but I'm sure she questioning that based on everything we ate from Thurs until yesterday when she left.

Have I ever told you ladies about my SIL who has had her fair share of problems? This is H's full sister (he has 3 step-sisters) all who got pregnant in HS. Don't quote please.
When I met M, his sister, her son was maybe 2. She was still very much into smoking pot and doing crystal meth and coke. She went away for awhile and got cleaned up. Married her baby daddy bc she got jealous he was dating other people. That didn't last long. Then she met some other guy and got pregnant (nephew is turning 3 this month). She's always missing family functions or shows up 3 hrs late. Doesn't really talk to anyone when she's there. She never reaches out any other time. She takes advantage of their grandmothers taking money, borrowing car for weeks at a time etc. can't keep a job nor can her H who didn't work until recently, not sure why on that either. H's mom ignores it and doesn't really talk to her. Her and H got into it via text over a year ago bc H is not happy how she is living her life, ignoring the family, doing drugs (assumption bc we don't know for a fact). Anyways last night she texted H asking for us to go to family get together on Wed (3 hrs away) bc she's going to sit down with the family and explain whatever is going on with her. H wants to have nothing to do with it. I feel bad bc I want to hear her story but I don't want to piss off H. He's being stubborn bc at the end of the day that's his sister and she's never asked us for a dime or caused us any harm. They have not spoken in awhile. She and I have texted briefly every 6 months or so. I kind of feel like we should at least call and be there for meeting via phone but H doesn't want to. I feel like it's family and we should forgive and help vs holding stupid grudges like H does. Should I call in?
Edit: she text me this morning saying she knew H would probably not join in and asked if I still would. I told her that it's not worth me and him arguing so he has to decide but if she needed anything to let me know.
cynthia2007 - I think you made the right choice to stay out of it and let your DH decide. I don't think your DH made the right choice but I don't blame him for not wanting to participate. I have family members like her and know what a drain they can be. I hope her meeting means she's really ready to change her life for herself and her children's sake.

Morning all! This week will be better!
Absolutely crap night of sleep, but only because I kept swearing DD would get up at any second. Well, it was 4, but she was up for the day. She passed back out at 6, only to have DS open the door asking if it was 6 (read the clock, kid) and then drumming on the bannister until I got up. Sigh.
But! DD has gymnastics/tumbling today and I figure it will be super cute, so there's that.
I haven't caught up but I will try to today. lioness13, I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL. I haven't brought myself to read her obituary but I'm sure it's beautiful. megaroo64, I'm glad N did great during her procedure!! thatblondie, I hope everything is ok with M!
I know I'm forgetting a ton so I'm sending my love to everyone who needs it!
