Happy belated Mother's Day, first of all!

Mine was lovely. I received a new camera to replace the one that spontaneously died a few months back. I am absolutely in love with it.

Saturday, I spent the afternoon shopping with Mom, while Oliver took Liam back to our motel room for naptime. Liam made out like a bandit this weekend - 4 t-shirts (including a Mets shirt to dress him in when we go visit my dad!), a plaid button-down, 2 sets of PJs, and a pair of pants. Oliver got a few coins to add to his collection. And I got a pair of shoes (but mine are brown).

Sunday, we went to my aunt, uncle & Gramma's house for the day. Good family day - had lunch, chased Liam around, played a game during his nap, took some pictures, and headed back home. Got home much later than anticipated, but Liam was still in bed almost on time.

I really need to get back on the wagon in terms of diet and exercise. I haven't dared step on the scale or do a Body Test in a few weeks now, but this weekend was especially bad. We went out to dinner Friday night to celebrate O's citizenship. Then we were away over the weekend, so there were two more meals out on Saturday, and my aunt bought pie & ice cream for Sunday's dessert. Three different servings of ice cream in a 3 day period. Bad me. :P

Exercise-wise, I've just been lacking motivation. Part of it, I think, is that I'm bored with the Wii Fit exercises I was doing for tummy/arm stuff. But also it's just a matter of laziness and tiredness. If I don't sleep well for a few days, I have a hard time convincing myself to get off my butt and DO something. Especially if I wait until later in the day.

So I'm going to start walking every day that is feasible, and doing it in the morning around 9 or 10 - late enough that breakfast has digested, early enough to be back in time for Liam's lunch. Morning walks really help my energy levels for the whole rest of the day, so I just need to DO it. As for tummy/arm exercises, meh. I dunno what I want to do about that, but I'm definitely sick of being so floppy. And I know I've no one/nothing to blame but myself.

Job interview is Thursday. I found out this morning that the pay grade for that level of job is between $9.50 to $11.50ish as a starting wage. If they're willing to hire me towards the higher level, I will probably take it. If it's towards the bottom, I won't. It wouldn't even make any sense, once you factor in paying for child care. I put on my application, though, that I was looking for at least $12-15, so if they aren't willing to at least come close to that, I'll sort of wonder why they called me in the first place.

New batches of pictures on the family photo site. :)
