My two youngest kids are home from school today. Its report card writing day. Its the last day of school for my older one although he has exams next week. I think they will all be glad to have some time off. We aren't going on holidays until August but I'm sure we will find plenty to do around here until then.
I have been trying to eat more. I did okay yesterday despite dinner being a peanut butter sandwich. I wasn't feeling the best so I didn't make dinner. Today the kids wanted to meet Gord for lunch and go to the Costco food bar. I looked it up online and it is so HIGH. One slice of cheese pizza is 700 calories and the fries are 980. I was able to talk them out of Costco and instead we are meeting Gord at the mall food court. I will probably have a muffin from Tim Hortons which is 430 calories. A bit higher than I would like since its pizza night, but I've been good.
I have been doing really well on the bike. Its started to heat up here so I doubt I will get much more hiking done. The heat makes me ill. It doesn't even have to be that hot. My oldest son gets really sick too. Its a good thing we live in the north. Thankfully, my bike is in the basement where it is cooler.
I have still been feeling so bad about the Jordan's problems at school and the whole mess with the principal. I haven't been sleeping alot because of it. I sent him an email this morning just to touch base about how things are going for Jordan. I feel ALOT better now. His reply was very nice. When I go to the school I try to avoid him. Not because I don't want to talk to him or anything because I actually like the man. I just try to stay out of his way so he can't dislike me any more. I guess you could call it being considerate. In the email he said he noticed Jordan was doing better as well. I am glad to hear that. Even his school work this last week seems so much better. He has been talking about some of the lessons which he doesn't usually do. Its usually in one ear and out the other, but now he seems to be absorbing some of it. He is starting to get his focus back. Its because he isn't worried about getting hit anymore. I sure wish I would have gone to the principal earlier in the year before it all snowballed, but I can't change that now. All that matters is that he is getting better.
My doctor appointment went well. It was a sub so she didn't know that I hadn't gone for my tests. I want to get down a bit more before I have it done. I told her she HAD to mark my weight down in my file for Dr. Raymond to see. She even showed me the graph. I was having a proud moment. LOL My BMI has gone down alot too. I am sticking to it and that is incredible for me. Still no one has noticed though.
