the bunny.....

James LOVES him! View the picture below and you will understand what I'm talkin about!! He's so dang cute! I was totally excited and didn't want to leave. I was amazed because he HATED Santa! So I paid the horrendous 13.95 for one picture, but it was totally worth it! I have managed to scrap 2 pages for the DT entry at S4L this week but I don't like how either of them have turned out so I'm going to make another one. I'm not positive what I'll do but I NEED to do another one that I am happier with. I have an idea in my head and as soon as I am done here I'm headed out to put it on paper. Pending Sophie's sleeping status. Speaking of the diva, she's gettin over her ear infection, so thats great. We've been on the hunt for green Easter clothes, which is a giant pita when trying to match 3 people. I swear I wish some years I could just opt outta Easter at my parents! My mom has this crazy matching thing and if I showed up in a different color I'd be disowned! One day I'll live far enough away that I won't have to come! lol! Sean is glad that he is not here this year!!! NOT FAIR BABE! Speaking of Sean, he's getting ready to go on a mission. He's so excited because this is his first real one. It's nothing big. Its just a "flyaway" but he's mostly excited because he'll be albe to sleep in a hotel room because the base they are flying to has no barracks! He hasn't slept in a "comfy" bed for months.....since like June of last year. I can't wait for him to come home! He may be able to come around my bday but we still aren't sure.

I went to my doctor today so that I could get a referral to go see a surgeon. Bet you are wondering what for right??? Well I found out that Tricare (military ins) will pay to have lap-band surgery done. I have researched this for about 3 months and decided that I want to go through with it. According to my doctor I am 200% over my ideal body weight. Now I am going to put down on paper my weight and I don't want any of you to gawk at this number. Boy this is rough all I have to do is press 3 little numbers!! Ok I currently weigh 256 pounds. I KNOW I KNOW thats HUGE! Trust me it's appaling to me too. I have progressively gotten bigger since Sean and I started dating in 2002. I lost about 20 pounds before we got married so I could fit into my dress better, but since then I hav gained every year. Even with doing Weight Watchers I would gain weight. It sucks because I have no self control. It's really bad. So I know that for me this is going to be a good option because I won't be able to over eat. If I do I'll be sick. My mom had it done about a year ago and has lost about 80 pounds. I have talked to a few people that have had it done and had nothing but good things to say. I still have to wait for Tricare to approve everything but because of all my stats my doc said that I should have no problem getting the approval. I already have an appointment scheduled with the surgeon I chose on the 26th! So needless to say I am pretty dang excited!

Ok off to scrap. Now here's James!!!
