Mamavation Monday 10/4

Hello ladies!

So, I have been decidedly absent from my blog and twitter for about a week and a half now. On September 23, my beautiful nephew was I've been spending a lot of time soaking up his love.

Also, last apartment flooded due to some piece of plumbing rusting through and falling off. I had just finished taking my state SRNA exam (which went well) when I checked my voicemail and found out about the water. For the time being, we're staying with my parents until they get the carpets dry, cleaned, and checked for mold and mildew.

Luckily nothing that important and expensive was destroyed, but my scale wasn't so fortunate so I'm not sure what I weigh. I'm getting a new scale at some point this week (probably soon), so I'll probably weigh myself on that weight...and do any weight losses in the future from that point.

I'm honestly not that upset about the scale because 1. It was cheap...not some fancy, expensive kind. 2. I know I've gained weight

Between eating whatever was served in the cafeteria in the hospital while my sister was being induced and in labor (two and a half days total) and then coming to stay with my parents (home cooked southern food) and a schedule flipped upside down there's no way I DIDN'T gain. Perhaps the scale made an all-loving self sacrifice so I wouldn't have to stand on it and know the horror this week. That's the story I'm sticking too.

Hope you all have a great week! Thanks to Subway for once again sponsoring Mamavation this week.
