True Confessions: Have a Pint

Of Ben & Jerry's that is!  So, I must confess, in the middle of my meltdown yesterday, while trying to get up the courage and drive to throw out all of that 4 months of pumped breast milk, I pulled out my pint of Ben & Jerry's to see what state it was in.  It was in the deliciously melty state that I love.  And, as I mentioned, I am an emotional eater, so I fished around for several bites of brownie bits and cookie dough before recapping and getting down to business.  May I just say the indulgence was delightful and it made me feel so much better.

Throwing out all that milk did suck though.  And the day seemed endless.  I was feeling achy in my joints all day and I could not feel warm to save my life.  Kaia stayed awake until almost 1am to top it off but . . . the day was not all bad.  At approximately 9pm on November 17th, Kaia rolled over, twice!  From front to back.  It was amazing!  Of course she would not repeat it on camera or skype for her Daddy nor would she repeat the act today, but she did it and I saw her and I am so proud!  What an amazing little angel!  And, I got to talk to her handsome Daddy on skype for like an hour so I guess I could not ask for too much more goodness.

Oh, and the fridge/freezer is now fixed so back to trying to restock the supply.  It was the motherboard ladies.  I know, I know, I thought that was a term I would only hear when some lame, I mean totally awesome, sci-fi movie/show was being talked about but, apparently, your fridge has one too.  Who knew?

Oh, lady.

Ben and Jerry's is curative stuff, really.

I hope you have a lovely weekend to make up for that horror show!

Ha, I know right?! Funny in the horrible kind of way but things are looking up! Thanks ladies!

I had no IDEA a motherboard was in a fridge! I would be upset to throw out all of that milk too. I mean, you work so hard and consistently, day in and day out, to store it. Ben & Jerry's would definitely ease the discouragement though!
