Where the heck did the time go? It’s nearly 2013!!

I’ve been quite busy over the last 5 months. So much has happened!!

My boyfriend is now my fiance and we celebrated our first anniversary of living together in March.

I celebrated one year at Columbus and the Valley Magazine this month. Yahoo!

My daughter turned 8 in March!

In one week she will graduate from 3rd Grade.

I am thrilled to say that to date she has earned all As on her report cards since 2nd grade AND the ONLY B she ever earned was one in 1st Grade. She is remarkable!!!!

David, Morgan and I found a home we would like to move into. It’s not the best looking INSIDE as it needs a bit of work, but the location is perfect!!!!

I’ll let you know how it goes in the coming weeks. If we get it, it will be after much negotiation on fixing the place up.

I like convenience. I miss the convenience of calling up Peapod or some other Grocery Delivery Service Company to deliver so I don’t have to fight the crowds at the store.

Who am I kidding, I don’t actually grocery shop much. My sweet man tends to take care of it for the family. I think it’s more so he doesn’t have to deal with Morgan asking for things and so I don’t wander off on some ‘wow, I’ve never seen this before’ journey.

It soon turns into a two hour trip which could have been done in 15 minutes.

I started the ‘diet’ again and am 10 lbs down. I have a long way to go, but I will reach my goal!!

I’m using the WW point system but consuming the Pro Cal 100 shakes to help keep me full. They are the shakes used for gastric bypass patients.

Each contains 15 grams of protein. I can consume up to 5 per day at 3 pts a piece AND add lots of fresh fruits and veggies at no additional points.

I have a confession. I am an emotional eater. I was so upset last nite and today about something that I couldn’t contain myself. I over indulged on food. Talk about feeling worse.

Now, I’m not only upset, I’m bloated, ashamed and could go into a diabetic coma at any time.

I ate…brace yourself………….wait for it…..wait for it….

8 Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches!!! In ONE sitting!!!!!

Who eats 8 Skinny Cow Ice Cream sandwiches?

Here is how it happened. First, it started 5 days ago when I decided to drink on Cinco de Mayo. This lead to eating a few tortilla chips and 3 tostada shells with the healthy food inside.

Then, it was sushi and frozen yogurt! I ate alot. Then, it was Mexican. Then, it was sushi and the Skinny Cows.

Five days of unclean eating triggered by ONE delicious strawberry margarita and a few chips.

I see how it starts. I just CANNOT get off plan. When I take one step off I need to learn to hop right back on. I will NOT fail.

I am glad to post it here so I can attempt to be accountable.

One more thing before I go tonite. Do you watch American Idol? I haven’t since Kelly Clarkson. But I saw a singer who really impressed me.

I absolutely LOVE my man, David Reneau. I know we will be together until death we part.

HOWEVER, if, by some horrible chance something happens too soon, I’ve found my next LOVE. That’s right……I am crazy over Phillip Phillips.

He is AMAZING and HOT! He is a human version of Edward Cullen.

Human Version of Edward Cullen...Phillip Phillips

But, David is still my #1! LOL!!!

About Carol Ann

Hello! I'm Carol Ann!! I'm the mother of an 8 year old daughter, Morgan. At the age of 40 I heard this ticking. What could it be??? It was my biological clock! It ran for only about 2 days before I finally decided to have a child on my own!!! I was fortunate enough to get pregnant on the first try! Now, I am a full time mom to an 8 year old. I'm planning a wedding and I am working at Valley Parent and Columbus and the Valley Magazine as an Advertising Executive.  I love my life!! I started the Parenting in Columbus Playgroup in December 2006. If you are pregnant or a mother or even a caretaker of a child, be sure to join the PICP so that you can get out and socialize!!  We do lots of fun stuff in and around the area!!! I hope you enjoy reading all about my chaotic (yet semi-organized) life!!
