My Vitini

So this is my way of trying to make drinking my vitamin shake more interesting. Instead of choking down my vitamins I prentended I was drinking something fun, it helped that it was pink of course. As much as I hate taking this healthy grossness, I have to admit that Reliv* is magical. I had stopped taking it for a while and got a cold, so I decided I better start taking it again. After three days my cold was gone!! And if you are wondering why my baby is such a genius at only two and a half months it could very well be connected to the fact that I drank (sometimes gagged) this stuff the entire time I was pregnant. Go figure ...
*Disclaimer: I do not sell Reliv and never will but have certainly benefited from the product.

Dear Market Basket

Dear Market Basket -

I used to refuse to shop at your stores because I was a snob but now that I am an adult with a little baby I can't resist the charm of your oh so cheap prices. You have started to offer natural and organic products, which for me was also a huge selling point. I still hate how crowded you are no matter what day of the week I shop, but I guess when you offer such a discount you insure that you will always be busy. Overall I have become somewhat satisfied with your store but can you please stop giving me so many plastic bags??? Does a bottle of ketchup really need its own bag? I know, I know, I should be brining my own resuable bags but for some reason I keep forgetting them in my closet. I have a great idea for you though, if you made me bring my own bags and didn't offer any at your store it would force me to remember and probably save you money allowing you to lower you prices even further and gain even more business. So what do you say? Can you help me to be responsible by being responsible?

Thank you ever so much,

Change Will Do You Good

I have never done well with BIG change. I like certainty, but at the same time I am frustrated if I get stuck in a rut so really I don't mind the small changes, just the life changes. I become so afraid of what will happen and struggle with letting go of what is/was. So deciding to have a baby was not an instantaneous decision or an easy one. I knew it was something I wanted but I struggled with the hows and whens. It seemed so overwhelming and I was very comfortable where I was at, just Jeremy and I. I over analyzed everything and weighed out every little detail until one day I just let go ... As I write I am sitting here holding the most precious change I have ever experienced, she is beautiful, she is perfect, she is mine! I can't imagine my life without her. She is by far the best and the biggest change in my life and I couldn't be happier.
