~Surround myself with positive people and eliminate the "bad" ones
~No facebook or texting between 6-9 pm Mon-Fri I did very well with this but didn't always accomplish it....Do they have rehab for facebook addicts?!
~Complete an online anger management course (Until I master my own anger, I cannot help my child master his.) --ALMOST!! It's a 4 part course and I have ACED 3 out of the 4 modules!
~Have kids backpacks, shoes, clothes, etc., all ready and laid out before I go to bed. ---I'm getting much better at this but didn't meet this goal daily as I should have.
~Keep my house clean. This has been challenging but crucial to my sanity! I've done great with it but still have some more to do. I am going to consider this an achieved goal but as it is a seemingly never-ending task I will keep it as a monthly goal. There's a lot of clutter and A LOT of work in this area so I need to keep on, keepin on with it!
~Read and sort my mail! [I know, I know...this is something everyone should always do and you're probably wondering how I remember to pay my bills...I don't, that's the problem! LOL!]
~Keep my house clean (specifically...find the closet floors)
~Lose 3 pounds to make it to GOAL WEIGHT!!
It's time to show OCTOBER who's boss!! I CAN DO THIS...WE CAN DO THIS, TOGETHER!

For a good 2 weeks now I've been on back on track with my eating and officially gotten out of my funk...good riddens I say!! And fist bumps to Spark People for teaching me how to always pick myself back up and keep going! This place ROCKS!
So the birthday for my little man went...okay. Actually I thought it went really well but he didn't, lol. Before we left for the dinosaur exhibit at Union Station he decided that that was NOT what he wanted to do for his birthday, he wanted a bowling party! [he had mentioned this to me but I thought that I had talked him out of it since he had a bowling party last year]
Change of plans... If it's a bowling party he wants, a bowling party he shall get [well a sort make-shift, last second party but whateva] We picked up Chris's kids, Montana and AnnaBelle, [which they were SUPER excited about!] and to the bowling alley we went. We had a great time although Kyler wondered where all his guests were...
Then it was off to T-Rex Café, a really neat restaurant with interactive dinosaurs. I thought he'd love it but as soon as we walked in the door he bolted back out and was scared. He timidly agreed to try it out and spent the whole time at our table under the 'magic squid' for protection and didn't want to explore at all. Toward the end he perked up a little and enjoyed the gift shop but when asked if he had a good birthday he says no!
Overall I know he had fun and loved all of his presents. Though he says he didn't, he did. Maybe next year I'll get him more involved in the planning...it's just that when you ask a kid what he wants to do he'll name off a whole list of things, then you choose one and you just hope you choose the right one!
I love birthdays but I'm glad this one's over! LOL Now it's off to enjoy the weekend and my new all time low weight of 153.2, woo hoo! I'm no longer gonna watch that ticker sit idol next to the goal line. It's time folks....TO DO THIS THANG!!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and XOXOXO to you all!!

Well, I'm finally getting a chance to post those pictures I promised from my weekend. Everything went great and we had a lot of fun at the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk. There was so much to do! There was a rock wall to climb for the kids, inflateables, live music, arts and crafts, clowns, face painting, and even celebrities like KC Wolf and Ronald McDonald! lol There was even free food, who doesn't like that?! For lunch there was a line where we could choose from hot dogs, burgers, brats, cole slaw, grapes, apples, bananas, oranges, and even non-fat yogurt! I knew there was going to be food but wasn't expecting such healthy choices! I had packed a bag of my own snacks and didn't even need it, I was pleasantly surprised! The walk was arround the KC Chiefs Arrowhead Stadum and was just a mile long. I figured out why it was such a short walk when I saw a lot of kids starting to get tired and therefore throw fits and have melt downs along side of the path, lol. My daughter did well but started asking if we were almost there about a 1/4 mile into it...lol, I gave in and gave her a piggy back ride for the last leg and thought of it as walking with weights, just one big a$$ weight directly on my back LOL. So without further ado, here's some pictures from our big day!!
Here's some with my friends kiddos in it...you'd think the red head would be mine but that's Hannah :)
And here's some pics on the walk and of our Team, "Lorelei's Troops."
Oh and I can't forget our team captain, Lorelei!!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my pics! I know, I got a little picture happy, lol...that's just the scrapbooker in me
[edit: sorry about any neck cramping that may occur during the viewing of these pics, I'll do better next time...oops]
