on blogging!

I have a lot to blog about but a lot of the pictures are still on the camera.

Meanwhile, since the baby is a couple of months old now and I put on a few pounds over the holidays (after losing all my pregnancy weight in only a couple of weeks, thankyouverymuch) so my current focus is trying to lose some of the 40ish pounds that I have put on since Frugaldad and I got married and I had 5 kids. I've learned that I have been eating a lot more junk between meals than I realized so hopefully I can lose a lot of these extra pounds just by cutting out the extra snacks and stuff.

I did a Google search to double check the safety of losing weight while breastfeeding. (It is safe, by the way, as long as you don't cut back too much). One of the articles I read talked about how it is an old wive's tale that eating foods like broccoli and cabbage makes a baby gassy. I must be an old wife, because I ate cabbage two days ago and broccoli yesterday, and my normally-doesn't-spit-up-at-all baby has been urping and spitting up constantly. I guess I will just have to eat less of those vegetables, which is pretty sad because they are two of my favorites.

Our drywall tape & texture job is almost finished, so stay tuned for pictures from that. Then we're on to primer and paint and light fixtures and plumbing fixtures. We still need to trim out windows and install a couple doors and then we'll be signed off with the city!
