My life would suck without you.

These are the perfect lyrics when I think of my son, he is amazing & when I look at him all I can think of is how utterly lucky I am that he is in my life.  It has been 16 months since he came into my life & I'm thankful each day for him, I am just as smitten with him as the day I gave birth to him & hope that never changes.  

In other news I have been actually doing something about my physical fitness lately, I've been walking 2-3 miles each day in an effort to kick start my metabolism & weight loss. I have about 20 pounds to lose for my happiness and about 30 according to my heigh standards. I really haven't kicked the soda habit, other than my 46 day detox from lint.

This brings me to my next topic: Making new friends, In addition to my new habits I have made new friends which is absolutely amazing! I look forward to talking & walking every night because I actually have someone to have a conversation with. My older friends in the neighborhood, of whom I couldn't be myself with have taken a back seat to my new friendships & it's kinda nice.

I love doing favors for friends, but not so much when the person is abusing the fact that you're friendly.  A couple of weeks ago a neighbor texted me to ask if I was busy on Friday night because his wife had been wanting to see a new movie for Mother's Day.  So silly, I thought he meant like give her a day off & allow "us" to go, well he wanted me to watch their 2 year old little girl while they went.  This man makes a 6 figure salary & they have the largest house in the neighborhood, however I did not get paid for watching her that night. Well last week they came over and wanted to know if I would be willing to watch her permanently since the (pregnant) wife could be going back to work over the summer. I've had time to think about it & they invited me over to dinner last Saturday so I went over & while I was there they asked me if I could watch her Thursday(today) from 12-5 for the mum to go on a job interview.  I am not expecting any payment, but a few dollars here & there wouldn't be such a horrible thing since it's 5 hours of my afternoon after all. I have already emailed them saying I would watch the little girl throughout the summer until the new baby arrived but due to my possibility of moving & returning to school I don't think it would be fair for me to stay signed on after September(when the new baby arrives). I also gave a price of $150 & to that they replied " we will keep that in mind if she"the mom" gets the job", I hate to say it but its kind of a condition with the price as much lower & I feel like it wouldn't be worth it. 

Anyway this was a definite all over post, but I felt like I needed to put it somewhere. Thanks for reading...
