The update to end all updates (are you excited yet?)! [Jan. 18th, 2008|06:16 pm]
I simply can't believe that school starts again Tuesday. This winter break has seemed so short and precious. This week's been hard, too...it's one of those that has the feel of 7-8 days when in reality it's only been five. I guess that's what retail does to ya, especially when hours are long and customers and work are few.
This weekend will be blessed and I pray for it to go by slowly. After that, the madness begins!

Tonight Ari and I are babysitting. With a bit of luck it should fly by (that is, if it's anything like the previous times I've watched kids, especially three of them). It should be fun--it always is--but I'm still a bit nervous because it's a place we haven't been to before and a new social situation. (Stop it, Amanda!)

This is the time of year for my voracious appetite to kick in...I don't know where it all goes! For weeks I've had to wind up eating something nearly every hour to still the hunger pangs, only to have them come back again. I've eaten more food than I can keep track of today and here my stomach is growling again. It must be the cold and I must be burning it somehow, 'cause I certainly am not gaining weight. Ari tells me it's normal, but man...this is weird!

Here's hoping I'll have actual exciting things to write about soon.

I hope you enjoy school and it's not as stressful for you this time around

Have fun baby sitting :D you'll do wonderfully even though it's a new place with new people

lol I know what you mean. Sometimes I'm just hungry all the time and I eat a bunch but it goes right through me! Then other times, like lately, I'm just not hungry at all and eat because I have to.

Thank you! Sure enough we wound up having a blast with the kids, and told their parents that if they ever want us to babysit again we'll do it in a second.
