Day 2136- How Do People Do It?
I was originally going to title this, how do Mom's do it, then realized there are plenty of stay at home dad's as well.

Day 2077- Another Good Day
Today was the first time I put Henry down in the crib and he just took a nap after less than 2 minutes of crying.

Day 2076- Today Was A Good Day
This morning, I woke up when Henry woke up at 7am. We lounged around the house a bit, and then I decided to take him for a walk. I drove over to my parents neighborhood, hoping to get one or both of them to join me, but my dad had a lunch meetin... Read more
Day 2075- Why Did I Start All Of This?
When I started on SparkPeople almost 6 years ago, I had seen myself on TV and was ashamed of how big I was. I wasn't engaged, but had been with my boyfriend for 4 years and had dreams of getting married and feeling great on my wedding day, and h... Read more
Day 2037- Summer Sickness
I don't know how I do it, but I somehow always seem to get sick at least once a summer. This time it started on Monday, and I thought it was allergies but it got progressively worse.
