Touchy-feely Thursday

Because I forgot to do it on Tuesday.

Everyone is doing better in the house.  We are all sleeping better.  Baby has even slept through the night the past couple of nights.  Not sure where that came from, but I hope it continues.  I feel almost human.  Not expecting much on that, though.  Just trying to appreciate it while I have it.

Doing better with WW recording my food.  The behavior mod has been fun, as I have been able to get a new song the past couple of weeks.  It is getting to be habit to do it once a day.  I still need to work on eating less, but at least I am recording stuff.  Have not been on a scale in a while, though.  So I have no clue if it worked.

I just finished the Trylle trilogy by Amanda Hocking.  I went through it in about a week, and it is probably the reason I have been slacking in the summer camp department.  I would be more fascinated with trolls than vampires.  I have always marched to the beat of a different drummer, I guess.

Speaking of summer camp, I decided to skip the last two day's prompts.  I just do not think that I am a great person to give advice.  There are times when I would weigh in the comments and share my experience, but everyone has different experiences.  What works for me may not work for you.  I also do not watch a whole lot of TV.  I usually go for series that are vastly different than my current life.  I like the escape factor.  Anything else, I just ignore.  So I have no idea how to answer a question comparing my life to TV.

I have a mommy's group outing today.  We are going for a stroller walk on a local trail.  This should be interesting, as I hardly ever use the stroller, and have never taken a long walk with him in the stroller.  I am not sure what to expect.  I usually carry the baby on walks.  But he likes the stroller, and he might do fine.  I am thinking of putting my ergo in the stroller, just in case I need it.  We will see what happens.

Summer Camp Day 28:  What size family do you come from, what size family do you want, and why?

I come from a typical nuclear family.  My immediate family was mom, dad, my younger sister, and me.  I think it was a good size for a family.  My maternal grandparents, and my aunt were in and out of our lives throughout my childhood.

I liked the childhood I had with a sibling.  I think that is why I want a family of four.
When I was in high school I used to joke that I wanted 2.5 children, which was the average at the time.

Two children are not a huge number, and anything more than three is a little crazy, I think.  I want two children, so that my children can grow up with a sibling.  I know that means going back to the Wizard for more help, and the whole idea of me bring pregnant again freaks out the Hubby.  But at some level I have always wanted two children.  After this one I am done.  Promise.  (If it makes the Hubby feel better, I am even willing to get my tubes tied after the next one, even though I doubt it will matter.)
