When I went back to church later for mass, Hannah and I found quite a few still hanging around. Good for you on drinking your water. I've really been slacking off the last few days. Better get back to it.

Nothing much going on here. It's rainy, so I don't know if I'll be able to cut the grass. I think we're going to the pet store to get Hannah a new fish.

Denise,
Butterflies? I bet that was pretty.

Sunday not much happening. Probably going to NaNa's.
Have a messy kitchen to clean sometime today! Been putting it off! UGH! I hate house work!
James' first day of pre school is August 18th! I am so nervous about him going! Oh I know he will be fine. He just has trouble sitting still for very long!

Drinking my water! Not a lot of exercise went on this week. UGH!
Have a blessed Sunday Mommies! emoticon

Hi everyone just checking in between events this weekend. Just got back from church where I volunteered at a huge wedding - 2 matrons of honor, 7 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, 2 ring bearers. We had lots of moving of furniture to get them all at/near the altar. It was a beautiful ceremony though. They released butterflies at the end.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Denise

Started my day mowing the lawn and then I just jumped in the wading pool with dd afterwards. ds joined us after a little while. Felt great after being so hot! Played with them quite awhile and then we all came in to get cleaned up and ready to head to Burger King for lunch. I was bad and had 6 chicken fingers (the breading was the bad part) and some fries. Just didn't think a salad would hold me until the bbq tonight. After lunch I got the cheese cubes put together to take to the bbq (probably $150 worth of goat cheese on those two plates if you bought it at a store...but dh and I can't eat it right now) and now I'm checking email and SP before looking at my Bible study lessons for tomorrow. I also need to look at the Astronomy study that we're starting the kids off with towards the end of September since I need to put the constellation study together myself.

Christie~Hope you're enjoying the 3rd birthday celebration that just keeps going and going! (We've had marathon birthdays around here too.)

Off to log in at the 10-day challenge. I may just make it through this time!

Everyone else....we're just all so busy this week!!

Took the kids to McD's for breakfast and then to the office store so they could pick out a binder to keep their "together school" writing/drawing in. Now I'm doing laundry and ds is working on "18" while dd plays. We'll get together soon for our So. America animal and then artist.

Lynn,
Thinking of you and praying for everyone.

Happy Birthday Nason! emoticon Christie hope everyone has a great time at the party tomorrow!

Busy day planned for James and I. We didnt make it to the pool yesterday, so we are going to try and make it today. First off to the library, the park, then swimming!
Went bowling last night. DH got his new bowling ball(that smells like cherry) and he HAD to try it out! James got 2 strikes! He threw the ball(or rather rolled/tossed) all by himself! We had a lot of fun.

Let's drink our water today Mommies!
Have a FABULOUS Friday!

Good Morning Moms...

Christie, Happy Birthday to Nason..the weather tomorrow is supposed to be fabulous, you picked a great day for a party, and in this summer, that has not been a sure thing FOR SURE!!

We went to another minor league baseball game last night..it sort of rained the whole time, which made for a not so fun experience.. I think we're pretty much done with baseball games this year, but I wouldn't ever say that for sure, because there could still be a lazy Sunday afternoon when nothing is going on......

My niece's high school graduation party is tomorrow. In the next two days I have to prepare and then make chicken salad sandwiches...200 of them.. It will be a labor of love, but it's gonna take a LONG time!!!

Off to work..it will be the last relaxing day I have for a couple, lol!! I hope everyone is doing well and moving forward on their spark journies!!


It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

Mom's...sorry to be missing so much. I have been cleaning non-stop and then dinner out with my parents who came up from NC.

Today is Nason's 3rd Birthday and we have another busy, busy day with my parents but are still getting ready for his BIG party tomorrow!

Will check in later!

Happy Birthday Nason! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey Moms:
Very busy week for me as we are finishing up our summer swim season. Kids had a meet tonight ( stayed home) we have team dinner tomorrow before the all day league meet on Saturday.

Abby and I have been painting her room, she is just thrilled wiht the result after I took the tape down... a bit of touch up and that's done.

Sad news, my BIL's dad died this morning, so we will have a lot of time with family this weekend. Either at services Sunday and Monday or watching my nephews and niece so my sister can support her husband without worrying about her kids. In a charming twist of fate, my grandparents knew my BILs father as they attended the same church as children and young adults,our families have been connected for almost 80 years,so it's a little closer than it seems.

Don't know when I'll be able to log back on, maybe tomorrow, but who knows about Saturday or Sunday? In case I don't have a great weekend everyone and keep up the good work. For me this eating right stuff is always harder in the summer.

A busy day here and finally checking email, etc.

We started our day out at the thrift store hoping to find dd a pair of cowboy boots as she is going to take riding lessons a couple times next month with a girl from church (a rodeo queen no less!) and we found some pink ones at our first stop for $12! Yeah! Also let ds buy a pair of spider man slippers (not sure what the draw was there) and then I found Cranium Cadoo (like new) for $2 so bought that. dd and I played that all afternoon. Then it was time to go to grandma's and dh and I went to see "Terminator Salvation" at the $2 theater. It was actually a good story for a shoot 'em up movie. LOL Tonight after the kids are in bed we'll watch our tape of So You Think...Dance and see who got the boot this week. I don't know how you choose from them...they are ALL so good this year!

The eating stuff is still very boring for me but I know it will get better over time. At least I'm doing it!

I have to say, I'm glad it's the rain keeping us in and not the heat. We still have not turned on the AC this year(miracle). I actually took the kids out in the drizzle this afternoon. They didn't care one bit!
Here's wishing everyone cool, breezy sunshine!

Thanks for all the support and comments on my blog. I really appreciate it. I was just having one of those low motivation (to do ANYTHING) days. Today was much better and we all enjoyed our trip to the museums and a stop at the main library (it is more than big, it's ginormous). I think the girls tolerate the museums just for the trip to the library. Just kidding they enjoy all three.

Hi all,

I was trying to read all the posts that I missed over the last few days which has apparently been more than that - oops. I do apologize. I've just about got my cross stitch project done for my nephew's wedding. DH and I and boys have to go frame/mat shopping for it over the weekend, just in time for the wedding next Saturday. My nephew and his wife will be moving to VA right after the honeymoon. They've already bought a house up there and moved some of their stuff. My other nephew moved to Oregon a month and a half ago and my mother, brother, sister-in-law, and niece will be leaving on the 5th to drive out and visit him. My mother is so excited.

I'm a bit excited as well. The Early Steps people came to observe S based on the referral they got from the daycare and the evaluator/assessor there. This person didn't think there was anything wrong with him at all and that he is right where he should be. L had another assessment, but I haven't received any feedback on it yet.

Now, that it all settled, maybe I can start concentrating on me again.

I gotta go, the boys are getting restless.

My Goals: 10% at a time.

I totally understand about the heat. It's 95 degrees in TX and should be up to 100 by weekend. My kid's camp usually takes them to air conditioned places during the day or pool. I remember going to day camp when I was their age and it was outside. It was so hot, especially on the days when we would ride horses. We had to wear jeans and helmets. Ah!! Memories!!!

Candace,
It is tough on the kids when they can't get out to play! James is having a tough time with only me to play with! I'm thinking about taking him to the pool this afternoon.

Christie,
Hang in there sweetie! Too bad about the TOM crashing the party!UGH! Can't wait to see pics form Nason's birthday party!

James used the phrase "As a matter of fact" last night. How funny. The funniest thing is he used it correctly!
I will be gone for awhile at the beginning of August. Decided to go to Colorado with my Dad. 18 hour drive in a pick up with James! It is gonna be tough on him. I just hate to miss the opportunity to spend the time with my Dad. If any of you have tips on traveling that far with a 4 year old PLEASE let me know!

Hope all of you have a great day!

Happy Thursday! Another hot one for us... poor Elizabeth can only go outside to play in the early morning or evening hours. It' starting to take a toll.

Olga, good for you! I tend to have the same problem when I get home from work. After the stress of the workplace, you just want to relax and do nothing. The trick is to do just what you did... it works.

Have a great day, everyone.

Christie, hang in there. It will be over soon.

Well, I did what I intended to do. I did not sit down on my couch last night until everything was done. I cooked dinner, (I sat when we ate). I cleaned up and then started eveyone's lunches and packed me a salad and then I actually walked on the treadmill. Then I did 2 loads of laundry. Then I finally sat down and you know what? It felt great. It was great knowing I got things done.

Have a wonderful Thursday, mommies.

Today is my last day to clean and straighten my entire house for Nason's birthday tomorrow. I have TOM/AF and am crampy and tired. My parents arrive tonight. Forgive my absence...I am trying to get around on the thread and say hello to everyone.

Have a lovely day!

I start a new 10 day challenge on Sunday. Let's be honest, between TOM and a huge Thomas the Tank Engine cake...I am giving myself a break until Sunday afternoon when my guests leave.

We started our day with a field trip to the Coop (30 min. drive each way). The kids nicknamed the store "Ugly Bugly Food Store." They saw so many odd things there they were just giggling and trying to see who could find the craziest looking items. I took one picture (I'll post later) of them holding Tofu items (cheese and "our winner" smoked tofu hotdogs--they looked nasty). I did find some gluten free chicken seasoning (I use with rice a lot), some crackers and bought the kids some organic graham crackers shaped like bunnies. I also picked up a small container of Hummous to try before venturing out to make my own. I'm pretty sure I'll be ordering online for most items that I would use. I found fake cheese made with rice but it is $5 for a 3X3X1 brick. Too expensive!!

Once home we worked on another So. American animal which was fun. I still need to get things together for them to do the spin art. A spinning paper plate with runny paint on it. Need to attach it to cardboard somehow so it will actually spin.

We're heading back into triple digits again today and they are to remain for about 3 days and then just stay in the high 90's. Thinking I should have signed the kids up for swimming this session instead of the first two weeks in August!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

So the guy came by to look at the damage I did to the neighbors house...looks like I am only going to replace the down spout that I smashed! Thank goodness. Don't know the cost yet they are going to bill me.

It is a beautiful day here only 67 degrees so far this morning. My sister in law may come over this afternoon with my nephews and we are taking the boys to the park. Should be a great day for it.

Lu, good job keeping up with working out!

Hope everyone has a wacky wonderful Wednesday! emoticon

Good morning, all.
How is everyone?

I realized last night and confirmed this morning that I can not sit down on any comfortable seat in the house. As soon as I sit down, I can't get up. I usually start my kids lunches the night before and then just make sandwiches in the morning. I started fixing lunches for the kids last night and then sat in the middle of it and this morning realized that all I did was take out the lunch bags and put their names on it.

Then this morning, I woke up at 5:30, took a shower and then sat down. I was sitting until 6:45 for no good reason. Then it was a race against time to get everybody out of the house and get to work by 8:00. I have got to stop sitting.

Made myself get on the treadmill this afternoon. Then I sat down and worked on some lesson plans and did some searching for some gluten- dairy-free stuff online. Going to take a drive to the Co-op tomorrow morning and see what I can find there before just ordering everything online.

Hi Mommies!
first off - Happy Birthday Candi!

I'm back from a week in the outer banks. It was great to spend time with friends and family on the beach and a bit of a shocker to go back to work yesterday.

With 4 mile walks on the beach in the morning, I was able to only gain 1/2 pound back despite the foodfest. Unfortunately, I now have tendonitis in my ankle and need to take it easy this week. I also just found out my cholesterol is way too high and may end up on statins - its frustrating as my "lifestyle" is pretty good now with respect to controlling cholesterol. Ugh, I feel old.



Be the change that you want to see in the world.

We're still hot here too. High 90's and supposed to be back in triple digits tomorrow for a day or two. Thankfully we don't have the high humidity with it!

The bridal shower went smoothly last night and I was a good girl. Only had some nuts, a chocolate covered strawberry (not that much chocolate) and some punch. Was helpful that my stomach still wasn't feeling that great so it was a reminder to not touch the cake!

Amy and her girls should be here in about 30 minutes. Guess the almost 4 year old has a bad throat but she doesn't seem to be feeling bad. Decided to risk it before she goes to the doctor this afternoon. If it turns out to be strep we'll deal with it. I think it might just be irritation from clorine after two weeks in swim class.

Meal plan for today... grilled teriyaki chicken strip salad (lunch) and baked tilapia for supper. I think I'll make some zucchini to go with that.

Morning Moms!

I've been so busy I haven't had time for Spark other than keeping up my food log... at least I'm doing that! I see I'm not the only one losing focus on the exercise, although in my case, it's been going on for a while... I'm just not consistent enough to make a difference. ARRRRGGGGHHHH Haven't even used the Wii for about a week and I have no real excuse.

I had my grandson for several hours over the weekend, which was a real treat. He's 18 months now and is really talking. Elizabeth has so much fun with him; she's like a little mommie.

Tim comes back from Canada on Thursday & will only be home til Aug 2. Then back up there for about a month. E. is really missing her Daddy, but he's been a big help to his Mom -lots of legal stuff going on as a result of his Dad's death in January and my M.I.L. is just not capable of handling it.

Hope you all have a great day! We're still suffering with 100+ temps and higher than normal humidity. yuk.

Good morning mommies.

We've had a couple of rough days/nights. D has a Gigantic molar coming in. It looks so painful and he is so cranky. Have I mentioned that he is up and walking? Well, he is! He's getting really good at it too!

Janet - I am the same way - I really have to make the time and do the exercise. It is the only way to make this work.

Christie - Who's getting the haircut - you or Nason?

Have a good day everyone!

I am ready to take down my weight ticker as it seems to be going the wrong way. I do find that I only lose weight when I do exercise....so...today I exercise! I love my new Chris Freytag workouts from Prevention. TOM is almost upon me, not to mention a weekend filled with guests and food...so....I am going to lose weight and be less than I started out this month...so...come on Christie...you can do it! emoticon

How is everyone. Sorry for being so busy. We are off for an early morning haircut, post office and dropping clothes off at Good Will. Then..LUNCH! emoticon

Christie

I can do this. I will do this. Becoming the Christie I want to be.

Focusing on fitness minutes and not the scale! Just me and my fitbit.

The bridal shower is done and went perfectly. Glad the leader of our "circle" was wise enough to choose paper and plastic over dragging out all the glass and silverware. Saved us an hour of clean up time easily. I was thrilled that my punch actually matched the yellow that was on the table. Couldn't have asked for more! LOL Maegann went with me and she was asked to hand the gifts to the gal. I was thankful for that or she would have been very bored.

I am feeling better today but not perfect yet. I had my leftovers from Saturday night and they did hit hard so I'm guessing it was onions or some spice they use there. And since I suspected it was something with the food I wasn't surprised that about 30 minutes ago my stomach has been more upset again. Should be okay by morning I'm thinking.

I'm agreeing with you ladies about the exercise...I just am not making myself do it! Tomorrow...treadmill...2 p.m.!

Have Amy and her girls coming over about 11 in the morning. Always an enjoyable time and typically they leave about 1:30 or so to head home for the girls' quiet time. Going to make teriyaki chicken strips to have on salad for us and then the kids will have cheese/meat or PB&J sandwiches.

Janet - emoticon and I hope you're feeling better.

Everyone else "Hi" you all sound so busy - I'm tired from catching up 2 days posts!
It is supposed to rain all week - I'm trying to plan some fun indoor adventures - wish me luck! (at least it's not over 100 degrees here)

Busy...busy...with errands and cleaning. I was out all day long with errands and then brought Nason to Old Sturbridge to see his animals and to place outside. My parents arrive on Thursday night and can't wait to see them.

Okay I did a 30 minute dvd and I feel good. Even better since Hannah asked if she could fold some laundry for me. Now if only DD16 would volunteer to do chores.

You're right Olga, I put off my workout all day, ate chips for my afternoon snack. It's not to late to change course. No reason I can't go do a workout now. Nothing to stop me but the dinner dishes and they will still be there when I'm done! I need to do this for me! Thanks!

I have been very bad. I have not been on treadmill or ate right for the past several weeks. I just spend all day at work snacking on "bad for me" food, mainly carbs. I really need to get back into it.

I decided tonight is the night. I will walk on my treadmill and I will cut up all my veggies for salads that I will take to work.

I sure hope I still feel this way when get home and see that comfy sofa that usually calls my name.

Have a great night, ladies.

Hi Moms, sounds like everyone's busy, busy, busy. Is there any other way a mom can be?

I'm just popping in to do a little Sparking between laundry and blackberry picking.

Hey busy ladies!

I'm feeling much better today but stomach is still not 100%. I'm wondering if it has something to do with my digestive system being altered as I really could not find any food that was wrong to make such an ache.

This morning we ran a couple errands and now the kids are doing some school. Tonight I am supposed to help at a bridal shower (I have to make the punch.) so hoping I'll feel like being there. I don't know why our shower circle always gets the HUGE showers! 30-50 people expected. Would love one where we plan for 20. LOL

Have a crockpot filled with vegetable beef soup for supper. I wish I could put some barley in it, but its now off the list.

Oh...my ticker is down again! Whoo Hoo!

Hello, Mommies.

Sounds like you all had a busy weekend. It finally rained in TX last night more to come today. It's a really nice break from the heat. But, weatherman promise more 100 degree weather soon.

Christie, congrats on the new car.

Lynn, my 10 year old DD also wants a new comforter and painted walls. She says her comforter is for little girls. It has flowers on it.

Way to go on the work out this morning Tina!

Okay yesterday I did one of my 10 most stupid things ever. I was backing my truck up to load a play set thing to take to NaNa's and hit the neighbors house! YEP!that is what I said HIT the neighbors house! Smashed their guttering(downspout?) and it cracked the bottom of a piece of siding! I feel horrible! Waiting for the siding people to come by today to give an estimate on what it will cost to fix it! emoticon What a way to end one week and start the next!

Have a messy kitchen to clean! Have a great Monday Moms!

I did work out this morning, which always makes me feel good!!

Have a marvelous Monday, girls!!!

It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

Busy day today,
We did church last night... so had a sleep in this morning.
Headed for the Detroit Institute of Arts this afternoon for Target(stores) Free Sunday. DH has a Humamities class and needed to visit. He actually killed two birds with one stone as he had to listen to a jazz performance (Happend to be a quintet playing for over an hour.)
Came home and had some pizza (I know, I know) then got to taping in Abby's room. After taping we started "striping in" the corners, windows, doors and floor boards.
Now am sparking with a smile on my face.

busy day tomorrow too

... taking the kids to swim practice/lessons from 8-11am I will walk with friends while they swim, then DH will pick them up as I have...
... a chiropractor appt at 11am
... Abby has her school physical at 2:15
... I have a hair appt. at 4:00
... Abby and I will roll the walls of her room after dinner
Catch up when I can...

Woke up today with an topsy turvy stomach. Hoping it won't turn into a flu bug... maybe it is just from all the eating out over the weekend although I mostly stuck to chicken salads. Just surviving on Tums for now.

Boys got back from camping much earlier than I thought they would so now I'm doing laundry.

We're supposed to be in triple digits again today. ugh! Then just high 90's and back to triple again on Thursday. I just don't like this type of ongoing heat...couldn't live where this was normal!
