And She Got Silver

Friday, April 17, 2009

Ok...to explain how "she" got to this point.... dd2 was in a competition for her early childhood education class...her specialty was interviewing....now mind you...this child has been looking for a job for over a year...and has had exactly 1 interview...in which she screwed it up when the person asked.... and why was you suspended...and her answer was...self defense...because i'm not anyone's punching bag emoticon so her going to state for interviewing...has been quite funny.... she got through city and made it to state...in which i am soooo very proud of her... it was yesterday... and to be honest...i'm surprised she got silver...see...they asked her what kind of personality types will you not work with...to which she answered...oh i can work with anyone...except those mothers who think their kids are God's gift to this earth (uh...don't all us mothers think that of our children...lol) ok...strike one... then they ask her what age group will she not take care of... her answer.... oh, i love kids of all ages....except when they turn 11 and they think they are teenagers and know it all (uh...funny...this from the child that was born thinking she knew it all..lol) so...she didn't get gold...and won't be going to nationals...but...i have to ask myself...uh...what did the bronze do to get a lower score than dd2??? lol...

all in all...she was thrilled just to have made it to state...and i am happy my baby girl will be home very very soon :)

Numbers

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I have always found numbers fascinating....i know...weird...lol... but with my oldest niece just having a birthday on Monday and my mom's birthday tomorrow... i was thinking how our numbers all kinda mesh...let me tell you how one family can blend in regards to numbers.... first off...i was born 3/16 at 3:16pm...my dd1 was born 11/11 @11:11pm. I was born exactly 1 month before my mom's birthday...dd1 was born 2 days before my dad's birthday. my dd2 was born 1 week before her fathers birthday...my oldest niece shares her birth month with my mom and her date (13th) with my dad. my dd1's husband shares the same birthday as my dd2 and dd2's fiancee shares his birthday with my son.

Just thought that was interesting...lol.

    emoticon I thought I was the only one that noticed oddities like that. With two siblings born on Friday the 13th and the other sibling born on April Fools Day, I find the numbers interesting too.

    That's great! I was in labor with my daughter for 36 hours, and then my son was a scheduled C-section, but I ended up having him 36 hours after his scheduled time. We were bumped by octuplets. So I think it is interesting too!

Cupcakes And Eggs, Easter Baskets And Parties Galore

Saturday, April 11, 2009

ok..maybe not parties galore...just a couple...lol...the fact is...it's easter weekend....and for our family, as with most...it will revolve around food...we are having an easter egg decorating party for the teenagers and their friends...which means...food was the first thing planned... lol... i didn't make candy this year, but did make 2 dozen cupcakes and will be decorating them shortly...then comes the easter baskets...now let me tell ya... this is more like christmas for me... i love making baskets...and it's a good thing...since i have about 10 to make...lol....i have my kids (the ones i gave birth to) baskets of course...then mom... can't forget mom...then then the kids that have adopted me as 2nd mom...and nieces.... to say the night before easter looks like easter throwing up is an understatement...i will have easter grass in the living room for the next month... at least... lol....and yes...they all want their candy...but i also buy lots of other things...like bubbles... bubbles is a must for any easter basket...even as they turn into adults... they are still expecting their bubbles...lol.... also odds and ends of games and toys.... nothing too extravagant... just something other than candy... then the parties... today will be an egg decorating party...i have foam egg shapes to make picture frames and boiled eggs for easter eggs...along with 5 egg decorating kits... tomorrow, is my nieces birthday...so instead of easter dinner, we have opted for her birthday dinner... a lasagna casserole that my mom makes....and is oh sooooo yummy....

With all this...i don't plan to fail...i am planning to succeed despite all the yummy temptations around me...and...i will still get to enjoy some of the yummies around me... i mean....come on...if i have to put 10 easter baskets together, i should get a piece of the yummy candy...right?? lol... but that is the thing... i bought just enough for everyone.... and one little surprise for me...though i will say...i'm not worried too much about that... since joining SP...that is the one thing i can honestly say has changed... use to be, candy in house meant candy in my mouth...but i just took a look at my "secret" stash... and.... in shock, i looked at some candy that is still there from the christmas stockings?! ok... time to declutter that stash...lol... i've planned for today's party food, including the cupcakes... and am calculating what tomorrow's dinner will cost in calories...cause i know i am going to eat it...no doubts there...so will just plan the rest of the day around that...my water will not leave my fingers these next couple days... and exercise will definitely be on the menu....

With some planning...i can still "indulge" in the easter and party favorites... i don't have to suffer while everyone else is easting the good stuff... and i will put all i have learned on SP into action...this weekend more so than any other.

    I have the giggles. Kitty girl .... you can't have "one little surprise" for you. You know what it is already. lol I wish I was there so I could sneak in and eat the "little surprise" ... then you really would have a surprise. lol It reminds me of the year that I bought myself a new sweater right before Christmas. My husband said, "You can't buy yourself a sweater right before Christmas , you have to wait to see if someone else gets it for you". I said, well I just found it on sale today and no one else knew I wanted it so I wouldn't of got it for sure. So I wrapped it and put it under the tree and when I opened it I jumped up and went on and on about how much I loved it. My husband was the only one who knew that I had bought it myself. We cracked up about it all day. lol I hope the REAL Easter bunny hops right into your home with a real surprise for you tonight Kitty. emoticon

    Good for you! what an accomplishment! I know that I looked in the hidden stash, and there is still candy and treats from Halloween. Time to get rid of that. I didn't get any candy for the kids this year for Easter, the grandparents will give them enough.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Easter!

    I can so very relate. I got to my Mom's last night, just in time for dinner, we all went out. I went way over my calories for the day, but did manage to make healthy choices. This morning I wake up and she is already preparing food for tommorrow. In the meantime she is making snacks and has bowls of candy and other things in every room, good thing I do not have a strong sweet tooth, anyway, had fresh fruit for breakfast and on the right track so far today!

I know together we can do this!

When Setting A Deadline Isn't Good

Friday, April 10, 2009

This blog is in response to a post i read in one of my teams...for those that read it...sorry for the duplication...on a good note...a little more is going to be added to my blog :)

I am a procrastinator by nature...i was born procrastinating...lol... this is something, that in my adult years, i have tried to work on...but the fact is...i'm still a procrastinator... so...when i set a deadline for myself...it's almost without fail...not going to get done until the deadline is just moments away...you should see me every month during our family and friends game day...my family can count on me to call to say, "hey, pick this up" or "i'm running late, just come on in and i'll be there soon" lol... i try not to do that..and over the last year, i have been much better at this...but not perfect...nor...will i ever be... see... i have also accepted this as part of who i am... so...i make it work for me.... that means, i have to plan...and make many mini deadlines...and not think of the final deadline until then... as for my weight loss... i take it one day at a time... yes...i want to drop 25 lbs by summer... but...uh...that isn't going to happen if that is my deadline...why... cause let's face it...if i said i want to remodel my bathroom by summer...and summer is here... i can take a couple days and a few sleepless nights to get it done...i can't on the other hand drop 25 lbs in 2 days... if a report is due at work in 1 week...i can stay up all night to get it done (not recommended of course...lol) but i cannot drop 25 lbs over night... so for me... i know what i am made of...i know who i am... and though i can work to improve... i also realize that i am still me....i accept that...i love myself in spite of it...and...yea... because of it... for me...if it wasn't for the last minute...nothing would get done...lol... unfortunately, weight and pounds aren't like that... so for today... i can try to lose just 1/4 lb...i can get my cardio in for today... and for today....i won't think about all the weight i need to lose but the 1/4 lb that can be gone tomorrow.

    I too am a procrastinator, I still have to do my local taxes, LOL. I will get them done this weekend, because I have to, the deadline is here.

But you are so right. You have to accept that about yourself, and move on. You are doing such a great job, just take one day at a time, and do the best that you can do everyday, and you will get to your goal. Remember the tortiose and the hare! Slow and steady wins the race!!!

Have a great weekend my friend!
Happy Easter!
