House of Egg

I could have named this blog "house of" anything. House of Tired. House of mess. House of yardwork. House of wanting to eat everything. House of cry. House of hot. (it's hot in here right now) House of toilets running over. House of laundry piling up. House of negativity.
House of spring. House of good health. House of weight loss. House of trying to clean the house, but playing outside with the kids instead. House of EGG SALAD. House of tired because I'm working out. House of smaller clothes. House of laughter. House of beautiful children. House of Anna being creative by trying on multiple outfits/day. House of Noah talking and singing. House of love.

It's amazing that I am in such a bad mood, mainly because I'm tired and my house is a mess. However, I am really trying to focus on the "positive house" I mentioned in my second paragraph. I should nap, but I won't. I'll blog and drink coffee instead.

A couple of things are on my mind.
First. American Idol. I'm very glad Ace is gone. SO glad. I'm very pissed that Chris was almost on his way out. What's up with that?!?! Next to leave? I hope it's Kelly Pickler. I really do. I am SO tired of this stupid act, if it's even an act. Who is voting for her? Who finishes a song in this type of competition and says "I blew it!" idiot. She did, though. Again, who is voting for her? I feel like she's teaching the younger girls in the world that it's cute to act stupid. It's cute to not have brains. Yes, I feel sorry for her that her Dad is in prison and I'm proud of her for getting this far, but this is far enough. The road has ended. I hope. I think she's beautiful and very talented, but so is Katharine and Paris. At least they have the brains to back all of that up! whew. I feel better. I asked Brian why he liked Kelly Pickler, he said "because she's cute." Whatever. (in his defense, he did say if he had to vote for someone it would be Katharine, not Stupid, er, I mean Kelly)
Second. Shalom. Have you watched "Shalom in the Home" on TLC? It's a great show. I recommend it. Because of Shmuley I actually created that second paragrah of positivity rather than focusing on the negative. Be grateful for the good. No matter how simple that is, it's so hard to live by it, isn't it? I'm working on it.
Third. Today while changing a poopy diaper made by Noah, I heard Anna going to the bathroom, as soon as I threw his diaper away I came into the bathroom to see a waterfall streaming of the toilet, like I have NEVER seen before. I still can't figure out what she did. Luckily, there was no poop involved in that matter.
FINALLY. I've lost 25.2 lbs. I just made egg salad sandwiches. I tried to resist them, but I couldn't. I made them with low fat and regular Miracle Whip, I did the recipe builder on the Weight Watcher site and it says 6 points per serving, without bread. I can't wait for dinner. After peeling, cutting, stirring and now smelling eggs, we are the House of Egg.

    It's so easy to fall into the negativity trap, isn't it? I'm having the same kind of day and ended up taking it out on my husband. Well, I won't say he didn't deserve it ;)

    Now I'm counting down the minutes until I can put my munchkin to bed so I can have some peace and quiet. I hate feeling that way, but sometimes it happens!

    Your post has made me realize that I do need to see the positive in EVERY day, so now I'll sit back and try to pick out the good moments from today and see if I can't turn it around a little ;)

    Ah, YES, those days happen alot, BUT when I am at my lowest, I begin to think about how truly blessed I am. So glad you were able to write the positive stuff out. Sometimes that helps even more then thinking it.

    I love reading your blog. I can just picture everything you are writing about!

    I've been fighting House of Negativity lately too. I attribute it to sleep deprivation, my cluttered house, and a lack of sunshine :p

    We thought it was Ace's time to go last week. It's The Pickle's time, but she has the support of VFTW (

    WTG with your weight loss!
