But if that isn't shocking enough... Last night as the kids were going to bed, I was feeling antsy. This is the time I usually hang out or do something with my man. I hadn't even left my house yesterday. I thought about going to the gym and asked my oldest son to go with me (he has a membership), but he declined. So, I ended up taking my daughter and we went shopping at Wal-mart (which was the only store open that late). We left at like 11:30pm and got home just before 2:00 AM... ON A SCHOOL NIGHT!
((((( Pausing for gasps of horror to subside)))))
What kind of mother takes her almost-straight-A child and keeps her up until ALL HOURS goofing off in a store that is completely deserted except for night stalkers... STALKERS! (see how bad that is)... This is the kind of mother that people go "tsk tsk..." whilst they shake their heads in disapproval! This was me!! Oh where is my sense of respect for a good nights sleep and teaching my children self-discipline?
But dang, we had fun!!
Yes, we feel pretty cool in those ICarly and Tinkerbell sunglasses!
We loaded up a cart FULL of clothes to try on, only to find out the the changing room was closed for the night (it was 12:30 am at the time). So we pulled our pathetic, sad, little faces while we looked at our cart full of clothes and they let us in to try on anyway. We tried on like 20 articles of clothes each and then perused the store for other treasures. I got a couple Blu-ray movies to surprise my son (Mega Mind and Despicable Me). I totally spent money we didn't have. I was so irresponsible!!
But at least I didn't binge or eat off plan!!!
Speaking of Plans... BOTH Brent and I STAYED the same weight - no gains or losses from the last week. So now.... GAME ON. I've got to get my last 5 pounds off SOON so I can enter that contest... Oh, and because I just want to reach goal.... BUT I REALLLY want to enter that Medifast "Happy Afters" contest!
So, today is a new day. Today I will be responsible. Today I will NOT let my kids or myself get away with murder anymore. I am the adult! (I will be repeating this to myself all day). LIFE IS GOOD!!!
