Water and sugar everywhere!

Now I know this is a weird title of a post, but please wait and you will see why I titled it this way!
So living in oklahoma I have always said that the air is so humid its like taking a sticky shower everywhere! Humid is a way of live, we live and breath it in the summer months and pray for cooler weather! This week it has been so bad! I honestly haven't been able to get outside as much as I wanted to because of it. I walked to my moms on Thursday and Friday morning at 8:00 to go to work (side note I am now helping my mom run her preschool/ daycare) and man oh man I was so tried, nasty, and wet by the time I made the six block walk! SIX BLOCKS THAT WAS ALL! LOL Now Logan loved the walk and so did baby (Annalyse yes that will be our little girl name) She did not kick me the whole time, so I thought she is already a stroller walker! When I got there I was so ready for a big glass of water, yes I did take water with me but it was warm by the time I got to the house. I opened the fridge to get Logan some milk and then I saw it! That wonderful sugar smell of known other then... KOLAID!!!!!! I haven't drank that in forever it seemed like, but I wanted and thought I needed that sugar. So I  closed the fridge and thought no Amanda go get your water! So I got a huge glass and put lemon juice in it thinking that will crave my sugar. Nope it didn;t ten mins later there I was in front of the fridge again thinking do I or do I not! Now I knew it was bad when I said well (baby Annalyse has not been kicking that much so the sugar would help her!) So I gave in and pored me a glass, as I went to drink it my two year old walked in and said no momma mine! I laughed because he was right is not for mommy, but for Logan so I gave him a quick drink and poured the rest down the sink! Guess what after that I did not crave it anymore! I was laughing thinking sometimes it takes a two year old to remind me that I do not need that sugar!
I have to tell you that all you ladies are wonderful this week will be more of an active week, I start work on Monday and I am so excited to walk there on Friday's! It will be a great time and I know that everything is where it is to be! I love you all so much! Please message me if you need anything! I am here it may take me a few days to get to you, but I do care!
On a side note, if you all could [ray for my little family it would be great. We are having to move back in with my parents while Stephen finishes Nursing school, with him only working one or two days a week, and me not able to work we are not going to have the money to be on our own. I have been having a tough time with this, but I know it is for the best!
Congrats to Jenny and Lisa for doing so good with this campaign, and to Christlikemommy for being SOTW!
Also THANK YOU BOOGIE WIPES AND LEAH for sponsoring this week! I love me some boggiewipes! Till next week may the light of Heaven shine down in your life's!
XOXO Amanda

Way to curb the craving! It's amazing how just the sight of something can bring back memories and get your mouth watering!

Good luck with the move. It will be an adjustment but hopefully life will level out soon and you'll be out on your own in no time!

Big Hugs!

I hadn't thought about KoolAid in quite a while but you're right, it does have an unmistaken smell.

Good luck with the move, remember it's just temporary and it will be nice to have some help during the last few months of your pregnancy.

Thanks for the reminder to drink water. :)

OH good job on not drinking it girl!! That's fab! How sweet that the little one stopped you!

Hope you have a great week. Humidity is HORRIBLE! :)

Colleen said...

Good job avoiding the temptations! Love your baby girls name!

Marie said...

Way to kick the craving! Gotta love kids honesty! Good luck in your move, it's temporary and you will get through it.

So you took a sip and dumped it down the drain? Or did your son take it away from you? I was confused. Either way, you have an exceptional amount of self control...especially for a preggo lady. XXOO

Moving stinks - moving in with family stinks too. However, I have done it before and what kept me sane and able to adjust was simply reminding myself that it was temporary!

I'm amazed at how you passed up the Kool Aid! That stuff was so good as a child, but when I look at the ingredient list, I shudder!

Have a great week

Im thinking of you! Love you!

Krista said...

Good luck with the move. Been there and done that. Hopefully time will pass quickly for you so that you can be back on your own with your family.

I know that kind of humidity! We have it in South Carolina too. Ick.

Good for you for not giving in to the sugar craving.

Yanno, moving in with parents while hubby finishes nursing school is a very very smart thing to do - tough I know, but very smart. SOmetimes the best things we can do for our families isn't easy. You're doing a great job!

we lived with my dad for about 4 years while my hubby was going to school. i think it hurts your pride more than anything having to admit you need help. but be grateful you have wonderful parents who will let you. it may be trying at times (believe, i have been there) but it will be worth it not having to worry about the stress of making enough to afford rent/bills/and whatever else. when you look back on it you will be so grateful for the opportunity. plus, it will help you a lot with logan and with the baby girl. if you're craving sweet drinks, get crystal light (or the no-name brand stuff) i love that stuff and i drank it all the time when i was pregnant with ian so that i could keep myself hydrated. my fluid was low so i had to drink like 4 quarts a day for a couple months.

Isn't it great how our family members are keeping us on the straight and narrow? God bless him. lol

Good luck to hubby with school. I'm a FT student as well (well, I took the summer off, but you KWIM...) and it can be difficult! Best of luck to all of you! (And I apologize for my late comment.)

I just moved back in with my parents the beginning of June after leaving my fiance (another story). Its not easy admitting you need help, but sometimes its the right thing to do, especially for your family. Sounds like you are making the right decision for you and your family. Wow, I haven't had Kool-aid in a REALLY long time. Kudos to the little one for helping Mommy curb her cravings :)
