a heat alert has been issued here today. that is how i know it is super hot outside. i was only outside briefly today and so was my daughter. my birds are more chirpy today than they were yesterday. it did thunder again during the night here and that was it. i am finding it easy to follow on sparkpeople. i am starting to enjoy regular exercise. i am noticing little changes, like getting into the habit of cooking healthy meals at home more often. i have switched 2 percent milk for 1 percent milk and i don't miss the difference. even my daughter likes 1 percent milk more now. she encourages me to not give in to cravings for things like pop,donuts,chips,nachos or salted crackers. she told me the other day that she is so proud of me for finally taking better care of myself. she wants me around for a very long time. she reminds me daily to get in at least an hour of exercise and to not give in, even when things can be challenging for me. she is such a smart,loving,caring child. who enjoys being active and is helping her mommy to enjoy being active,too. have a great day,everyone!

it started off cloudy here today. then i heard thunder and rain. now the sun is shining brightly and it is very warm outside. my daughter and i only went out briefly twice today. she wanted to go back in as soon as possible. she is spending the day with her grandparents. she likes to do that and they love to have her spend time with them. mommy is all caught up with the laundry now. so i am taking it easy. it is supposed to be pretty warm here all week. my daughter has one last tball game this week after supper. then, except for the one day tournament coming up in august, she will be done with tball. we went to see the smurfs movie the other day and we both really enjoyed it. she loves the book she chose from the local store the other day. i encourage her with reading as much as i can. have a great week,everyone. for those going through a heat wave, keep cool and stay well hydrated.

is coming to a close. it feels like yesterday when it was the beginning of the month. every day, my daughter and i like to do things together. today, it was time at the local park and at the local drugstore, to see what things they had and for me to pick up a prescription that was ready. my daughter knows about my asthma and tries to help me out as much as she can. she really encourages me to be as active as i can be every single day. even after we have been on a really long walk, she is raring to go and be even more active. she is on the go from when she gets up in the morning until she goes to bed at night. her enthusiasm for life has rubbed off on me. now i want to learn new things, be much more active and to just have fun! after looking all through the store, she decided on a book to read. i readily said that she can have it, as i am encouraging her interest in reading. when i was her age, that is one thing i really enjoyed doing, reading. i still do to this day. she is such a smart,sweet,caring child. i am blessed that i have her in my life. she is a wonderful daily reminder of her dad. she has some of his mannerisms and expressions and she will grow almost as tall as him when she is done growing,too. she is most definitely her own person. she has some of my traits,too. she looks out for those closest to her. the other day, she called my sister and chatted with her for a few minutes. she was visiting with her grandparents and asked to use the phone. on their phone, there are numbers in a memory area. she automatically reached for the one that is ours and instead got to have a nice chat with her aunt. she is the only grandchild, so she can get spoiled sometimes by her grandparents. they also set limits, such as how long she can use the computer or watch tv when she is there. this year, her grandparents will be married for 45 years. she wants to do something special for them this year. i will figure out something between us and her aunt. that is not an anniversary that happens every day. this year would have been my 9th anniversary with my husband. i still celebrate the day, usually just a quiet dinner at home. that is the day my husband and i met and i will treasure it always. i get along well with my inlaws,too. i want my daughter to know about her dad's side of the family whenever she has questions. have a great day,everyone!

my daughter and i had a great time at the wiggles concert on wednesday! she danced pretty much the whole time. i was dancing,too and singing along. there was a part where the actual wiggles came into the audience to collect roses for dorothy the dinosaur. my daughter was leaning way out of her chair so she could see them going right by her. when they took some time to read some of the fans signs, that made my daughter's day. now she will do so again for another kids' concert. she was a bit disappointed that she could not get a wiggles souvenir. she got over her disappointment quickly when she realized what movie started playing today. she is a smurfs fan and so am i. so of course i agreed to take her to see the first showing of it today. she got to see one of her teachers,too, while we were there. i will be putting up some more pictures within the next week. i finally had time to upload them from my camera onto my computer the other day. my daughter loves to be active and enjoys reading so much. she does not watch much tv, for which i am glad. she'd rather be active, reading, doing things like playing board games and just enjoying life. she will only be this age once. she makes sure i move plenty during the day and reminds me to take breaks whenever it is very cold or very warm weather. my birds are doing well and say hi to everyone. have a great weekend,everyone!

the sun shone brightly here today and it was not as humid,too. it did rain for a while this morning, then the rain stopped and the sun came out for the rest of the day. my daughter is so excited about the upcoming wiggles concert on wednesday after supper. she has been crossing off each day for the past week, on her calendar. she reminded me this morning to not forget that the wiggles concert is on wednesday after supper. she knows that mommy is looking actively for a part time or a steady day job. she reminded me the other day of some of the things i am good at doing and encouraged me to try and apply for jobs in those areas. she wants mommy healthy and happy and i want the same for her. she brings such joy to those who know her. she is able to make friends when she is at school. now that she knows she will be going to school all day every day starting in september, she has been trying different things for lunch,to see what else she likes and what she is able to carry with her to school each day. she enjoys playing educational games, being active indoors or out and to practice her printing,writing skills. she can write a bit already and her printing is really good. have a great day,everyone!
