This is my BEST effort to stay awake tonight. It is past my bedtime, but the children's sweat pants are in the washing machine. Considering they need them in the morning at about 6:30, I have to get them in the dryer before I go to bed. We will be up at the butt crack of dawn for the Race For the Cure.

The "psychosis" seems to be better. That may just be because I haven't left my house for anything to freak me out. I have cleaned everything around here including base boards. YUCK. That in itself is reason enough for a psychosis diagnosis. I even baked homemade bread tonight and cooked dinner. Yep, something is definitely wrong. Mallory's birthday party is Sunday and I already have the gifts and they are wrapped. This is definitely not normal. It's cool, but it's not normal.

I found this awesome website to do children's chore charts. The whole concept is sort of like that of Webkinz if your kids are into that. Mine are WAY into that so it works out very well. You have a log in and so do each of the kids. They have a "virtual pet" they have to keep alive by doing their chores. My computer is a little freaked out right now so I'm not real sure, but I think the website is I'll check that later and fix it if it is wrong. Jeff will have to fix my computer. My whole toolbar has disappeared. It does this from time to time and Jeff gripes at me while he fixes it. I don't know why he doesn't just show me how to fix it or better yet how I make it disappear. ANYWAY.....we are going to start the chart thing at the first of the week. There isn't anything around here for them to clean at the moment. HA.

So, that 20 pounds I worked so hard to lose after the steroids back in April has returned. There's just nothing like putting on 20 lbs in about 2-3 weeks. I've decided it just plain sucks and I'm working on loving my new chin.

The kids are so excited about the race in the morning they both went to bed early without being told. They had their clothes out and ready including hats and gloves (except for what they brought me to wash). It's supposed to be about 48 degrees at the start of the race in the morning. I'll have some pictures to share tomorrow. Wish us luck.

Have a great night if you aren't already asleep. Hug your babies too tight and share your love. Somebody out there needs it.

I think having an extra chin is charming...or at least that's what I tell myself :)
