In an effort to reduce my Mocha intake, I didn't commit to actually drinking more water, instead I commited to just make it readily available at my desk. Low and behold... it's working! It used to be that I would consume one 16-20oz coffee for the drive in, another 20oz Mocha for my morning workload, and then maybe another large Mocha for the ride home! Now I skip the home coffee, treat myself to one Mocha for the ride in, make it last halfway through my morning workload, then switch to water. And the warmer weather is naturally making me skip the afternoon Mocha in favor of something icy-cold instead. These changes, combined with my recent bout of nausea, have already taken the tension in my snug waistband down a notch.

Happy Mothers Day from Christopher

I so enjoy receiving little crafty preschool gifts that I had no hand in researching, setting up, executing, or cleaning up after! :)

I'm Happy You're My Mom
"I'm happy you're my mom,
'Cause you take good care of me.
You love me and you show it,
So I'm as happy as can be!
I love you very much.
And so I want to say,
Thank you for all you do,
and Happy Mother's Day!"
