We did it!

Monday, April 08, 2013

I am so surprised, I took my 7 week old GS, Davis, to Zumba. I wasn't sure if he would sleep through the 40 minute class, and he didn't. He woke up half way through and just watched me. He got a little cranky and I picked him up and he danced with me. After one and one half songs, he let me put him back in his carseat. He was watching every move I made. I thought I might have to give up my Monday and Wednesday classes, but I don't because, we did it!

For all of you Leos out there.

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Today I was reading my horoscope in the newspaper and it was very uplifting, so I thought I would share it with you.

LEO
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Luckily, change doesn't happen instantly. If it did, existence would be chaotic and meaningless. The change you're making is a slow process, and it is going well. You'll see in a few weeks.

Very appropriate!

Here we go again.

Monday, April 01, 2013

Well last month after vacation I went to the doctor for pain in my jaw. My Doctor diagnosed an infection and put me on a 10 day prescription (antibiotics). I had lost 4 lbs from my last visit in February and I had just gotten back from a 10 day vacation. I finished up my meds like a good girl and one day after, my pain came back. Unfortunately it was Saturday and I could not get back in to the doctor until today. Well, long story short, another (or maybe the same) infection. This time I got a stronger antibiotic and was sent to the hospital for x-rays. I should have the results tomorrow. Well, more good news, another 2 lbs down in 12 days. I have not given up on my food plan or exercise regiment. Hopefully this time I can get rid of it. emoticon

    My hubby just had his last antibiotic infusion for an infection that got in his blood stream..It was vancomyocin. supposed to be very strong. For being strong it took a month at home and a week in the hospital to get rid of it. Makes you wonder where all these infections are coming from. It seems more prevalent now than a few years back.
Hope you get rid of it for good.
congrats on the 2 more pounds down. emoticon emoticon

Loving the hard work.

Friday, March 29, 2013

I had no idea that watching 2 kids all day would be so exhausting. I now watch my 6 week old and 6 year old grandsons while my daughter and SIL are at work. At first I thought I would be having Wednesdays off because my SIL had that day off each week. But the day I started, he also started a new job with long days. Oh well, even though I come home thoroughly exhausted, it is a labor of love. One day, I know my grandsons will appreciate the love they were given during their formative years.

Pat

    This labor of love really shows when your grandson WANTS to spend time with you. When he WANTS you to show up at his school functions and such. Years from now he will be saying my grandma did this with me, did that with me and my grandma LOVED me. You are helping to mold a well rounded individual! There are just not enough of those kinds of people. YAY PAT.

    Your grandsons are so fortunate to have you there for them! I know they will appreciate your hard work and love! I think we forget what a demanding full time job it is to be in charge of little ones full time. I can only imagine how exhausted you are when you get home. What a wonderful thing you are doing for them and for your daughter and SIL! I know you'll have a very close bond with both grandsons And -- it sure sounds like you're getting some bonus fitness minutes in!

For them. And you (except that it's gotta be exhausting).
I get tired just thinking of watching mine for a few hours, on rare occasion!
Have to hand bit KUDOS to you on this!! ;)

    I used to work in a daycare do I know about that loving exhaustion,. There were two of us for 30 kids. Most were 3 but if they were potty trained they sometimes took them at 2 and a half.
Have fun and look at all that moving you are doing.

"hands across spark people...season of hope." pass it on,.
