Grr. Having a stressful week. I haven't weighed in. I didn't weigh in last week either.
I have fibromyalgia, and we had some very unpredictable weather this week. As a result, I have had a lot of severe pain, which left me unable to move. I've spent time in the bed, shuffling to the bathroom or living room (thank God for hardwood floors and socks), and on Cole's couch knitting for a little while. The fibromyalgia makes me feel bad emotionally, too, because I feel like my kids deserve better than a mom who is randomly bedridden. It's my issue to work through, but it's the truth.
So tonight, the boys are playing in the living room, seemingly not paying attention to the TV, and a commercial comes on. It's for this magical pill that is sure to eliminate any speck of fat off one's body. Suuuuure, right?
So, from the peanut gallery, I hear my 8-year-old son say, "You should get that, Mom, so you can be skinny."
