I'll tell you, I slept really pretty good, but am having the toughest time actually waking up this morning. And NOT looking forward to my errands today. I just wanted to stay home.
Well, we went skating last night for Girl Scouts. Alisa didn't really get to be with her new friends. Most of them could get out there and just skate, skate, skate. But she did have lots of fun. And everytime she fell, she'd get right back up and laugh it off. I was so proud of her for that. I walked around with her and she even noticed that after a while, she could lessen the grip on my hand. She had lots of fun. We have a fundraiser to go to on Saturday so I'm sort of looking forward to it.
Dh left all my dirty dishes in my sink last night while I was gone, knowing I HATE coming home to dirty dishes. It was late when we got in so now I've got these dirty dishes to wash before I make breakfast so I can turn around and wash more. Then dh was suppose to drop some papers off at the bank this morning but now he's leaving before the bank opens and wants me to. I don't mind, but the point is it's just him, he can run in and out. I have to drag three kids in and out and it sort of pisses me off. I think I'm moody today, lol.
Hello to everyone, Penny, Mel, Spryng, Michelle, Deana, Sherry, Steph, Chris, Angel, Jill, Jaymi, Jeniqua, Roxy and all you other desperate housewives. Hope you have a great day. I'll try to be around later, but when I'm not in a good mood, I don't like to do much of anything. TTYL
Hope everyone is having a great morning so far. I am....have to start getting redy to go get tires and go to Curves, then Abby has preschool. Have to drop off a camera for processing at Walmart. Matthew and the 2nd grade had their field trip yesterday to the Shriner's Circus and his dad gave him a full disposable camera to take with him, naturally he used the whole thing , so I told him I would drop it off today. It takes about a week to get them back. It was so sweet though, he wanted to take pictures so Abby could see what the circus is like . Andrew went last year and I went with them. I told them this year I just can't do the field trips. They are a week apart, next Thursday Andrew will be going to Hallmark's Kaleidescope for journaling and greeting card making. Plus with scouts right after each I just couldn't do it this year.
Yesterday my scouts were sooooo much better. I had been ready to quit if they wouldn't stop acting up and start listening. It was awesome yesterday, we actually got things done. Then we were going around the table and telling when our birthday is so I could write them down. When they got to me I told them it was in 2 days, they said they needed to get me birthday presents. I started crying a bit and told them that they had already given me the best one they could by sitting and listening and behaving better. Plus it helped that dh made us a talking stick and I painted it with cub scout colors. They caught right on to that, they can't talk unless they have it in hand.
Well dd is hungry and I have to get dh up to start getting ready to go. I will check back in later.
HAVE A GREAT OP DAY!!!
Total loss since joining Curves on 11/11/04:
(WI and measure monthly)
Michelle...thanks for the addies...you really are the BEST
We have the Trojan Horse virus...hopefully we'll be able to clean it up this weekend. I will miss you all terribly until I can get back on to catch up! I don't work again until Tuesday so if you don't hear from me....I've probably tossed the computer out the door...lol.
Have a wonderfull weekend...congrats to all you losers! Jill & Spryng...I couldn't be a size 8 if I starved myself! I'm jealous... but also so proud of both of you.
Ginny...a post from you...wooo hoooo, wonderful to hear from you again!!!!
Take care ladies!
We can accomplish more together than we can alone!
Okay...I see everyone slept better, except me. My RA kicked up last night and I spent most of it awake on the couch, dangling my arm over the side again so it wouldn't hurt. Darn stuff.
This is going to be a short post so I can get some exercise in right quick before Nicole decides to get "creative" for the day. I'm going to pop in Lilo and Stitch and then I'm going to the playroom to WATP. Hoping I'll feel more energetic when I'm done.
Phoenix-WTG on the 9 lb weight loss! That is awesome. I bet you feel great about that!
Michelle-Thanks for the addresses. You are a doll for doing all this. Where you find the time, I don't know. I'm having a hard time keeping up with regular life.
Well I'm going to go shake my buns for a bit. Get some of this extra weight off me and then I'm going to clean up for awhile. I'll check back later.
You must act as if it is impossible to fail.
One more here to add to the no sleep club. My youngest had nightmares on Tuesday night and Wednesday night, so I was up with him most of those nights. Last night though, he slept all night, and so did I, and Now I am feeling sooooooooo much better. I got my exercise in this morning, and got all my house stuff and shopping done by 9.
Jill way to go on the size 8. You know, I have been looking at everyones tickers, and their goal, and it makes me feel like a slacker. BTW, I am down 1.5 lbs, even with TOM.
Michelle, thanks for the addresses. You are so sweet to do that.
Have a great day everyone.
Good Morning Gals -
Sorry I haven't been here much. Just trying to get things done around here before the holidays sneak up on me. I still need to get in the shower and mae some phone calls, then run to dh's grandma's house to give her some cherries she is "baking"...she really can't cook, but we all pretend that it tastes good, etc. Things just don't get mixxed properly, baked long enough, etc..I have found that with each g-parent that i know ! It keeps em busy though! haha.
Anyway, hope everyone is getting sleep now, and congrats to all you losers! We miss you worker bees and to those that are having computer troubles, I hope that you get it all figured out soon! And to anyone that isn't in those categories, I hope your chidlren behave, you stay OP, you get in your exercise, and you slow down if you are busy! Okay Covered us all I think! Sydney is awefully quiet, so I better go see wahts up and get the ball rolling today!
Have a wondeful day to you all, I am blessed to call you friends!
forgot to mention that if I ge tthe chance later, I am going to add some more pics to the MSN site, I got the ones back from out house and halloween, etc. I will probably be doing that late this afternoon
I was going to clean my house today...then I broke the dang vacuum. (it was not intentional) I got most of the work done but with my little brood, it'll be undone in no time.
I got 30 min. of aerobics in this morning before Nicole started standing in my way no matter where I tried to go. I would have loved to gone longer. I feel alot more energized during the day when I get that done first thing. I binged for the last couple days. It was uncontrollable. I feel better today about it. I'm not really craving anything.
Looks like a quiet day on here. I'm going to busy myself and get some more stuff put on ebay. I want to sell some stuff to make extra money for Christmas. Make things a bit easier on the pocketbook by adding some cash to it.
