January First. Wow. Where did 2008 go? I'm really not sure. It's very cold & icy here, as you can see from our frosted window. This one is actually Mack's bedroom window. Brrrr! (Though he's nice & toasty in his room).
The cats took some sun this morning. I love it when they cuddle together, it's just too cute. (It's either they are cuddling together, or Jazz is on top of Zeus trying to fight him. Not sure who usually wins, I never pay attention).
There was even some sweet kisses in the morning. Jazz as you can see allows Sean to get close. Zeus on the other hand takes off like you wouldn't believe. Won't let either kid near him. (Which is funny because Zeus is the attention seeker and Jazz couldn't really care about sitting on you, or getting a belly rub...).
Houston.... we have a winner! Found a food that Mr. Mack actually likes! Apples. He likes pureed apples. So happy we've found something that he likes. So we're going to stick with that for a few days and try peaches on Sunday. But today, he's eating half a jar of apples at lunch and the rest at dinner. I think we're on the right track to getting Mackie to eat. I'll let you know how the peaches go on Sunday. Hopefully he'll like that too.
I'm going strict on the GI DIET, which I did back in 2005 (March to September) and lost 25 lbs by my wedding day. This time around, it's going to be harder, since I had two babies since the last time I did this "life style change" (I don't call it a diet) and I know it's going to take exercise as well as changing my eating habits to lose weight this time around. I've been very good today, and I plan on continuing so that I can shed the rest of the baby weight. I've set my goals for 2009, and I'm NOT calling them Resolutions, because those don't stick.
This evening my in-laws came for dinner. My step-mother-in-law made stew and it was really good. We exchanged belated Chanukah/Christmas presents and the boys were TOTALLY spoiled. They also brought us gifts from family members that were at Christmas in Toronto that we couldn't make it to (because Mack was contagious for 48 hours from December 22nd - December 24th) and they were just totally spoiled. Toys & clothes, I think we need a bigger house now! I got an awesome Track Suit (I love it!) and a nice shirt from my in-laws. They were great.
They even brought over Cheesecake and I was good and DID NOT have a piece. Boy that was hard. Let me tell you! We played Chicken Foot (I came in 2nd) and I munched on veggies instead. Will power.
I've been working away at the Moss Block Cardigan. I'm sure I'll be done in the next couple of days. I have other things I need to start/finish/accomplish, so I want to get that one done! It's coming along great and I like it!
Wow... January first... Here's to a fabulous 2009!
