i spent a long night with a feverish little girl snoring beside me. (note, i have a massive sun burn on my back, and i was forced to sleep on it because any time i tried to sleep on it in a gentler way, emma crowded around me untill i had to just lay back down on my back.) when she demanded i "get up mommy!" at 710 this morning i stepped on the scale. i weigh 173.4 pounds. up 0.4 pounds since last week. that is better than i expected.
now we are off to grab groceries before we we settle in for a sick day with the little girl.
