LJI Home-Game Entry - Topic 0 - Who Are You? Whoo -- oo are You?

This is my home-game entry this week for therealljidol . I am not competing this season but invite you to read and vote for the many fine entries.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
For Halloween we dressed as Peanuts characters.
I'm Sally, The Gryphon is Linus, and KFP is The Great Pumpkin.

I am not a witch. I am Sally Brown. Or I was for Halloween this year. I am also a mother, writing this with a distracted four-month-old on my lap who keeps hitting the tray table.

I am not superwoman. I am doing my best to balance the important things in life, and often this means making choices, which is why I'm not competing this year. It also means that changing a diaper takes precedence to just about anything else.

I am no longer an "after" picture. After maintaining a weight loss of 70 pounds for five years, only regaining 15, I regained the rest while pregnant. I am currently working on losing the remaining 40 pounds of pregnancy weight. It's a lot harder the second time!

I am going to have to cut this off soon, so that I can check my little Kung Fu Panda's diaper and strap him into the car seat before going to the YMCA for a Zumba class. I am optimistic this will make a difference in my weight-loss efforts.

I am grieving the loss of my doggie, Una, who died a little more than a week ago of cancer. She is the beautiful, sweet doggie in my icon picture, and while I considered changing it, I decided to keep it as a tribute to my faithful friend and nurse dog.

I am not a publishing success story... yet. Currently, I'm completing work on my book of essays, which I hope to make available soon.

I am running out of time, so if you want to find out more, read the Intro to Alyce I wrote for Season 5 (where I came in fifth place out of a field of almost 200), check out Who's Who on Musings or read last year's intro.

I've got to go.

I'm you.

Babies have a way of reordering priorities.
