OK, so for those of you who missed the story of what initially happened to my eye, here it goes.
The evening of September 9th I was changing little Preston's diaper, when all of the sudden he kicked his foot, sending his big toe crashing into my left eye. OMG did it hurt! My husband had to take over and it must have taken me close to 5 minutes to be able to open my eye again. It hurt, but as time went by I thought it was getting better. Before bed I went to take a shower and when the water hit it I thought I was being stabbed with a knife right in the eye. I thought I'd just go to bed, sleep it off, and I would be fine in the morning. Didn't happen. I was awake most of the night in tons of pain. The morning sun was brutal and with every blink I took it felt like the knife pain again. During all of this, I still had the pain of feeling like someone had just punched me square in the face. Tried to make it through the day, but by the time my husband got home from work I said I had to go to the clinic or something. **My husbands insurance was going into effect for us that Sunday...go figure!**
Went to the clinic, they found two cuts on my cornea, apparently from the little guys toenail. By Sunday I was starting to feel much better. After I completed the 7 days of drops, my eye slowly began to get blurry. I tried to wait a bit, because I thought maybe it was still healing. I wasn't in any pain, just the blurry vision.
Today I went to the eye doctor to find out what's going on. They tell me the cuts have healed completely and my eyes look great. So then why the darn blurry vision?! Turns out I have an astigmatism in my left eye. This is not news, I had one when I was young. In fact I wore glasses from the time I was 4 up until I was 12. I had not had any problems since then. The doctor explained that sometimes when you suffer an eye injury it will bring things like this back up to the surface. So now I am waiting on my glasses to come in. I only need to wear them when I'm on the computer, watching TV, and driving at night.
So I am relieved that there isn't some underlying damage from the kick! And I can't wait for my glasses to come in so that I can see better when I'm on the computer! Now that I'm going to college online, I am on here a lot more than I was before!
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers! You are all wonderful!!

So a question to all of my wonderful spark friends. As you lose weight and gain this pile of clothes that are just too big, what did you do with them? Did they find a place in the back of your closet, are you crazy and still wearing them instead of showing off that awesome new figure? Or did you get rid of them? I am trying to pack up some of my summer clothes and just plan organize my dresser and closet. I don't know what I should do with these jeans that are now 2, 4, 6 sizes too big.
I would love to hear what you all have done!

It's been a while since I've posted a blog. It's actually been a 5 days since I've been on here. As I've mentioned to most of you over the past few weeks, I have not been doing so well. I got off track and am having a really hard time getting back on track. One of the reasons I think it's been hard is because I am actually happy where I am. I know I still have 10 lbs to lose to get to my goal weight, and 20 lbs if you count where spark has me set to, but I finally feel comfortable with myself. I'm fitting back into most of my old clothes and really happy about that. But in reality, my current weight for my height is still considered overweight. So I must get back to it. I did not attend any holiday picnics or gatherings, so I still had a healthy weekend, but I was determined that once the relaxing of the weekend was over I would get back to it. Then the colds started coming through the house. On the way to my daughters first soccer game Saturday, the baby started sneezing. BTW, here he is in his new soccer outfit big sis picked out for him...
Emily's game was great, even though they lost by one point. She played goalie the first half of the game and did really well. She also got a lot of play time in the second half and did great. This coming Saturday will be her second game and my middle sons first game.
So by Sunday morning it was apparent that the baby definitely has a cold. By Monday morning so did my husband and Emily. Sniffles, sneezes, coughs all the way around. Now today I feel it. The morning has been spent just laying around with Preston trying to keep him comfortable. Here he is this morning, although he does not look too miserable in this picture. But he has all his favorites, stuffies, blankets and the binky. Normally those aren't allowed out of the crib, but I am willing to do anything right now to keep him happy. The more he cries the more stuff comes out of his poor little nose...
So now I am just trying to eat healthy and keep the little one comfortable. Working out isn't much fun when your chest feels heavy and your nose won't quit running. Hopefully it gets out of the house just as quick as it came. And I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my middle son isn't going to get this. Tomorrow is our little mans second birthday and I sure do hope he feels better!! I can't wait to celebrate with him tomorrow!
Otherwise school has been taking up much of my once free time, so that has contributed to my lack of being on Spark as much as I previously had. But of course school has to be top priority, and I'm holding a 95% in both of my classes....yay!
So how's that for a bunch of rambling? My clear and focused thinking has been pushed aside by all the mucus in my head!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a good week!! Hugs to you all!

OK, so the family is having chicken tenders tonight at dinner. I decided to be good and make myself a boneless, skinless, chicken breast. I just finished thawing it, threw it in the baking dish and went to put the vinaigrette on it that I use to marinate it in. Guess what!? No vinaigrette. So now I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions? We have limited spices and things of that nature here. Any ideas from basic kitchen foods how to make it a little less boring? Obviously I can just bake it as is...but what fun is that?

Hi everyone...I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday!!
My mom is about a half hour from my house, yippee!! We live about 4 hours apart, so our visits aren't as often as we'd like. Regardless, she is about to arrive and will be here until Saturday, so I might look like I've disappeared this week. Don't worry about me, I have not fallen off the wagon and started binge eating, I am just visiting with mom! I got my mom to join this site not long after I did, but she has had some struggles, so I hope to help her get on the right track this week and take it back home with her.
I hope all of you have a wonderful week! I will be on here some, just not as much as normal.
to all my s!!!
