155.4 - Quicky Quick

So swamped. Have no time at all for me and it's driving me crazy.

Sophie is better--no dizzyness since Saturday, thank God. I took her to the doctor yesterday and she has a massive ear infection and strep throat (doc put her on augmenten). This is her 4th or 5th bout of strep this year (I've lost count, she's been sick so much), and so we are taking her to see an ENT on June 9th about getting her tonsils out. Her pediatrician asked if she snores, and she does a little, so he's guessing the ENT will look at her adenoids too. I'll be glad she'll be done with sore throats, and glad it's happening over the summer, but bummed she has to go through this. Oh well, tonsils get taken out all the time. She's with me at the office today and will go back to school tomorrow.

Food has been okay except for my ever-present problem of night time eating. I need a hypnotist or something. Seriously. Why I have no control over myself at night is beyond me at this point.

My legs are feeling much better today, and I might get to run tonight if DH can stay home with the kids.

Tomorrow, please be sure to come read my review of Jennette Fulda (aka The Pasta Queen)'s book Half Assed. I'm on her blog book tour. Coolio!

I ordered PQ's book yesterday - hopefully it will be here by the end of the week, so don't tell me how it ends,k? ;)

I think you'll see a big change in Sophie when she gets her tonsils out - I had mine out at 5 and it made all the difference!! Plus she'll get to eat lots of popsicles while she's recouperating!

Hope you get some time to yourself soon!

My daughter had strep so much in grade school that we considered the tonsil removal. It tapered off though as she got older and now it is rare. And ear infections. Night/evening eating is my struggle, too. I can be great during the day. If I get a solution, I'll let you know!

youngest had to have her adenoids taken out and I had to INSIST that they take the tonsils out too.

If I were you - I would insist on the adenoids too - right from the start.

Seriously - try hypnosis for the night eating. I've had hynosis and lost 21lbs and kept it off, my weight used to yoyo up and down all the time before, I haven't binged at all and can now eat just one biscuit and be satisfied (I'd eat the full packet before and more!!)
