Sara posted an update…

This weekend Marvin and Carole Anne are coming to visit. That should be fun.
Meanwhile…. I had an interview on Monday at Ambiance. I wonder if I will get the
job. The interview seemed to go well. I will get the call probably at the end of the week whether or not I got the job. She said she would take me shopping for new clothes if I get the job, since the dress code is buisness (and I don’t have a lot of stuff like that).
I am borrowing my mother’s car this week while I get ready to have my car fixed. It drives so nice….
I am doing the Atkins thing. I know I am vehemently against it, but what can I say? It works. I will have to update on what I’ve lost so far when I weigh myself again. Check out
Also, I am making Ari’s baby food. I have already made and frozen pureed broccoli, and I have some tomatos, carrots, and cabbage that I will do the same to.
My dad left for Jordan Saturday. He will be gone for 2 months. I think I could probably borrow my mom’s car for that long if I had to, but I really want to have my own car done by then.
I am expecting a check from the school for financial aid. It should help. Speaking of school, I am excited for it to start. It doesn’t start until August 30.
Like Brian said, Ari ate food yesterday for the first time. Also, I think he’s pretty close to rolling over from his back to his stomach. He can roll over from his stomach to his back already (although it always looks like an accident). He can sit by himself, since Saturday. Although he’s kind of shakey, so you have to be close by, because when he gets tired, he will flop himself onto the floor. He stands really well with support. He’ll be 5 months in a few days. And, at last count he was 25 inches long and 15 pounds 11 ounces. Ari found his feet last week, and he makes lots of different sounds now. I finally took down the bassinette and put up the play pen. He was outgrowing it anyhow. He sleeps in his crib at night.
As far as our finances go, we seem to be doing much better. We can’t really figure out when/where it happened, but at some point we broke even, and then went over that. Wow. Its good not to have to worry about that so much. I think a laptop or a new computer is one of the last things that we need to be thinking about. I feel like sometimes the Mr. has his prioreties a little mixed up. Yes, a computer would be nice….but… I’m feeling energetic, I hope to do more active-type things with my family. Its important to promote an active lifestyle to my son. Speaking of health, I bought Brian a multivitamin. I thought he should have it since he doesn’t eat a wide variety of fruits or vegetables at this time.
Yusef is thinking about going to school in Orlando, Florida. He is going to visit the school in mid September.
I finally finished watching all of Sex and the City. It was pretty good. We’re watching Dead Like Me now and The 4400. Also, we saw the first episode of Amish in the City and we may watch more of it because it looked interesting. I am caught up on Queer As Folk, and I saw all of Buffy. I really need to start Angel sometime soon.
Anyhow, I should go eat breakfast, or lunch I guess…The Atkins has a way of making you not so hungry. As someone who doesn’t enjoy meat as much as some people, I find myself pretty uninterested in food right now, and take little pleasure in it. Perhaps that’s a plus of the diet. I could see how a person that loves meat would really enjoy eating on this plan. Right now, I find myself eating just to satisfy base hunger, not for pleasure, boredom, stress, etc. Yes, I am hungry, so I’ll say more later.
Oh yes, if I could buy all of my waredrobe at I would.
And, World Market is the greatest store in existance.
