Yep. I started the Dancing with the Stars workout the day I got the okay from my doc to resume normal activities and did that for about a week (with the hope that it would get my body used to... well... moving...) and then I switched to the shred. I found my abs again. (Sure, they're buried under a thick layer of fat, but they are there.) Plus, the kids think it's the funnest thing EVER. Jake finally stopped trying to climb onto my back during the push-ups and has started stealing my weights for his own workout. Katie grabs the soup cans to use as her weights (and she gets a couple for me when Jake has mine). And we're all tired when it's over.
In unrelated news, Jake got stung by a bee on Thursday night. On his elbow and his pinky finger. John said he ran up the steps to the deck crying "bee! bee!" Poor kid. He's fine now but he really wanted mama so I got to hold him and cuddle.
John mowed the lawn today and found a wasp nest right by where Jake was playing. So maybe a wasp. It's gone now so that's a relief.
He also went to Grammy and Grampy's to help with their new deck and Grammy stopped by to see the kiddos while the men went to get some more wood boards, thinking they would be gone for at least an hour (because that's what happened on Friday). They were done about 15 minutes after she got here so it was a very short visit. So we got together this evening for dinner. I had pizzas (Digiourno, YUM) and Grammy brought jello salad, watermelon, and cookies!
Grammy and Grampy asked Katie if she wanted to go to Sunday school tomorrow and she answered yes right away. She chose a dress for Sunday and got her jammies, then brought her dress back to her room to switch it for another. Jake rushed to put on the shoes he had been wearing all day (Katie's size 10 purple jelly sandals) and he was ready to go too. Except he wasn't going. It was the fastest good-bye we have EVER had with Grammy and Grampy. Usually there are a lot of good-bye's and waves but tonight there was a big hustle!
So, after some cuddling with Jake and a workout, here I am. I'm about to fed Jack and go to bed.
Sunday will be very quiet (I think... unless I just jinxed it) and I plan to make a chicken back or something chicken-y for dinner. I'm hungry now just thinking about it!
