I heard a song today that I really, really liked. The first thing I noticed was the music--it was a pop song but the music was fun and I couldn't help but like it. Then, I noticed the lyrics and decided I really liked the song. I haven't heard much by Selena Gomez--I actually know her mostly from Wizards of Waverly Place because Alex went through a phase about a year ago where he watched it. I haven't really followed her singing career, but have to admit I really like this song.
Right now everything is crazy in our house--I am happy to get 3 or 4 hours of sleep in a row when it happens. During the day I get so caught up in doing all that needs to be done around the house, getting ready for Christmas, getting ready for Alex's birthday, getting ready for Alex's surgery, and a hundred other things that need to be done, that I never think to lay down while Kaitlyn is sleeping. By the end of the week I'm exhausted and after a while that can start to take a toll on your emotions as well. My incision is still hurting and hasn't healed 100% which I find to be extremely frustrating. I want to do EVERYTHING on my own and don't want to NEED people to help me. I lost 35 pounds after having Kaitlyn and now it is as if I have hit a brick wall. I gained 55 pounds with her so I realize that losing 35 is quite an accomplishment, but I also realize that I still need to lose 20 pounds to get my "old" body back--maternity pants are baggy now and, of course, don't fit right, and non-maternity pants don't fit and hurt my incision. Its funny how many frustrating things you encounter after having a baby. Because of all these things, this song, sung by a 19-year-old, really got my attention.
