Being Sexy

Here's my take on being sexy:
I WISH I WAS SEXYJournaling reads: be SEXY. Again. I really was sexy...10 years of marriage and 4 kids ago, that is. Being SEXY is but a dream. It may be reachable, but it’s so darn HARD to do! I have to resort to wearing these FLEXEES shapewear to some semblance of having some sort of shape to my body. be truly SEXY. Again.

Not only do I have to resort to those dang super duper TIGHT thingies, I have had to go to several doctors to try and get some weight loss medicine! Yes, I know exercise is the way to go, but face it, I'm lazy. So meds are sometimes the only recourse for me. Not that I'd need some drug rehabilitation of any kind.....I've actually been off weight loss meds since last year when I had my slipped discs diagnosed.

I kind of figured that the meds were messing with my bones or something (sucking the calcium out maybe?)....I did notice a correlation of drinking my weight loss meds with a start in my back hurting again. So......I dropped the meds. I figure I might as well be happy doing other active (semi-active, hehehe) things than being bed-ridden! :)

My daughters and nieces with my brother on his wedding day. They were all flower girls.

RUMBLY ON MY TUMMYJournaling reads: Whenever Rogan is sound asleep, Papa takes a Sharpie marker and draws Rogan's likeness on his stomach. No matter that Rogan tries to hide the marker, Papa always finds it.

BROTHERS AND SISTERSWithout a doubt, the TV show that best represents our family in real life is the show Brothers & Sisters! I used the show's official website for some inspiration

Journaling reads: Our family shares some uncanny likenesses to the characters in the TV show BROTHERS AND SISTERS. We share the same fears, the same strengths, the same weaknesses. We love each other unconditionally, and when disaster strikes, we automatically band together and draw strength from each other. Each person who marries into our family is treated with the same unconditional love we have for our own siblings. And yes, our lives are all inexorably intertwined with each other, as a family’s lives must. We are each our own person, and have our own family, but we all realize that we all form part of ONE FAMILY.
