Just another Manic Monday....

Monday, April 30, 2012

I wish is was Sunday Cause thats my Funday....Just another Manic Monday emoticon

Hello Everyone!

Whew, what a day...

First lets start with Sunday...Forgot to blog...oops
Well, I only got online once yesterday. I got a lot of yardwork done so that was nice. Then I studied so much I dreamt about it all night. Which probably was a good thing since I think I did pretty well on my final today...YIPEE finally done for the summer!!!

Last night about 1 in the morning Bubbie woke me up (he still sleeps with us) wanting me to turn on the TV. My back was facing him so I told him no it is the middle of the night it is sleepy time. So he rolled over and put his back against mine. I heard him whimper a couple times so I turned over to feel him to see if he was running a fever...he wasn't...but then started to cry for about 10 minutes. I held him and he finally feel back to sleep. This morning he got up and went in sissy's room to have her turn on the TV. (it was 2 minutes before we all were about to get up so that was a good thing) It was a normal morning, took Sissy to school came home, sparked, ate, studied a lil more and noticed he had fallen back to sleep on the couch next to me. I figured he was tired from the night so I let him sleep and went to class. Came home about 45 minutes later, he was still asleep. He work up maybe an hour later. He looked a lil peaked so I checked his temp...normal...so we ate and then I had to run to the pet store for dogo food, he wanted to go. He told me in the car his ear hurt. Didn't think too much maybe just congestion in his ear since we all have allergies. He hasn't had a cold, no fever so I didn't think to much until we got to the store and I was taking him out of the car seat. He told me again his ear hurt and kept sticking his finger in it and then his eye had some green goo so I new it was an ear infection. Grabbed the dog food got back to the car and got him an appt. It was at 5 but we got the half hr early and we were done 10 min to 5. Love that office...anyways...ear infection in left ear confirmed and right eye is due to it...so amoxicillian for next 10 days. But he is fine still playing...must have caught it quick enough!!!

They both have their ped dentist appts tomorrow. Evie is having a filling, Bubbie I am not sure about. It is his baby teeth so not sure what they are going to do.

Weather is going to get nice again this week 70/80's so hopefully get to use my bike again...been patiently waiting...only got to use it once this week.

BLC 19
My Fitness goal for this week (4/25-5/2) was to walk the dog 1 time this week. Haven't had a chance so must do that tomorrow so I can achieve that goal. Next week (5/3-5/9) is to ride my bike 1 day and walk dog 2 days.
My PIG was to stay my calorie range everyday. That was a bust so I will again try that goal for next week.

Spring 5%
I am still 8 lbs away from meeting my 5% goal by May 12. Don't think this is going to happen. But will be pleased is I could at least loose 4-5lbs by then.

Bday party was fun. Had lots of fruits/veggies. 2 Small pcs of pizza, small pc of cake and barely quarter cup of ice cream and a couple chips with salsa. The tarantula was a hit.

Got my 60 min of Zumba in and burned 418 calories. Before that I had a spectualar hour long session of back, neck tension Yoga,

My grade came in the mail today from my finance final from Thursday. Got 96% on my final and ended the class with an A-. So that is 2 A-'s and 1 to go. Hope to end that one with an A- too!

Well that is all for today. Going to finish going thru my 70 emails then done for the night. DH had to work but he is off in 5 minutes and should be home by 6

Have a good night!

So devasting...

Friday, April 27, 2012

I opened up my yahoo account to log in and saw this article on this little 5 month old baby that is dying of a rare genetic disease. The parent recently found out and after being heartbroken they started a blog written from the babies perspective. It is her bucket list...It is heartwrenching!

Check it out

    Bless this child and the parents. I don't think I could go through what they are and handle it the way they are. You go through troubles with your children and you don't realize how blessed you really are to have those troubles, to have them. They may not be saints but at least you have them. emoticon

    Oh my gosh, how sad!

There was one episode of touched by an angel that really stuck with me. It's about a little boy that was dying and he had a bucket list. Winona Judd plays his mom and one of the things on his list was that she would finish a song for him. He died as she was singing it with the church choir and a candle vigil in the background. It was the only episode that made me cry!

Its Friday, Friday...Just another CRAZY Friday!

Friday, April 27, 2012

Today is grandparents day at Evie's school. They are going to be putting on a concert and then having some activities. I had her dressed picked out and there was stains and so I thru it in the wash last night. Got it out the dryer this morning and found that they were still there. Had no other dresses for her and I didn't want her to be the only one not dressed up. So at 7:45 we ran to walmart. Found her a cute out fit but it is a tank top and they had no little sweaters. But left her with her clothes in case she wanted to change. She looked really cute. All her little girl friends came up to her and said how much they liked her outfit. All the kids looked really cute, a couple little boys were dressed to the nine. Evie saw one and was like oohh look at Drew, and I just laughed like good grief...you are only 7! She has a little crush on this one boy..Kriss...Just don't know what to do with her. I tell her they all have cootties... emoticon

I think the kids are spending the night with Gramma again tonigt. Fridays is the only tome they can since she works Sat and Sun nights. Then me and Evie have dance tomorrow. Then we have to hurry and get home and get ready for my nephews 5th bday party. I will make healthy choices!!! She normally has a healthy spread anyways! We got him a big radio controlled tarantula. Very interesting gift...

Anyways only got a short workout in this morning. Maybe a little more later! Have a great day!

    Kids, school, workouts, team leader... if anyone thinks they can manage an excuse not to work out they should talk to you first!
(I thought that by the time my kids went to college I was off the hook for those emergency WalMart visits - not so!)

    Radio controlled tarantula sounds awesome!

I've done the last minute stop at WalMart on the way to work for something appropriate to wear thing too. Not fun. I'm glad you found her something.

One Final Down, One to GO!!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Yay! I got thru my finance final today! It was so easy! Took me a whopping 25 minutes to complete! It was so much easier than the quizzes he gave throughout the semester. Just have to wait now for him to mail my grades to me. We had to give him a postcard if we wanted to know what we got on the final. He will only mail it to us.

Unfortunetely I will only come out of my management with an A-, even if I scored 100% on the final. I am ok with that! I only need to score a 169/200 (85%) on my final but would like to get an A since I scored a B on my first and a C on my second. To get an A on the final exam and A- for the class I would be super excited.

been running around a lot today so didn't get too much of my workout it. But every little bit helps!
