I love sugar, I love sugar like a smoker loves their ciggarettes. I know it is bad for me, I know it is a major reason why nearly four years ago I had gastric bypass. I know that if I ever want to get back to the weight I was before I had my son that I need to give up the sugar. It doesn't make it any easier. I have been suspecting for a few days that my sugar intake is causing little girl to be gassy and fussy so yesterday I avoided sugar as much as possible. Last night she slept very well and didn't spend two hours after her 5 am feeding farting and moaning. This evening she was in a great mood and didn't fuss all evening. I actually got alot of sewing done. Does this make me want sugar less, no. As a mater of fact I have had a raging sugar withdrawl headache all day and have spent the whole day thinking that some candy corn would fix the headache. I did give in and had a piece of ghirradelli chocolate on my way home from walmart, but that was a reward for putting back the two bags of halloween candy that I had in my cart. Got to go someone is hungry.

A conversation with God

Dear God,

I would really like to know what it is I have done that you felt that I needed to be punished for. Whatever it is I think that I have been punished enough! Really haven't I cleaned up enough poop? I know that today was my fault because I did not PIN his clothes on him before I put him down for a nap, but he was asleep and I was hopeful. Please, please let me know what it is I have done to tick you off. I will eagerly appologise to avoid cleaning up any more poop.

Some Quilty Finishes

I have been geting some sewing done durring my son's nap time and in the evening after he goes to bed. Little girl has been cooperating with me and often will nap for an hour or so at a time so I can get some things done. The first thing that I finished is a trick or treat bag for my son based on the designs from the Art to Heart Acorn Hollow book. The second finish is a Christmas stocking for little girl to match the ones that I made for the rest of the family the year that my son was born. Her stocking is not exactly like the others since I have run out of some of the fabrics, but it is similar enough that she should not feel left out. Now I have started on the block of the month from Quilter's Delight.

The other picture is of my son with a train that he got for his birthday. This one has a button that you push and it makes train sounds. The funny thing is that he can imitate the train whistle sound perfectly.
