My Kids Love Each Other...FINALLY!!!

Friday, September 02, 2011

ok, yes, they have always loved each other, but because they were so close in age, it was a constant battle when they were growing up...and sometimes it was hard to see that love for each other during that time...now that 2 of them are married and moved away from this home, and ds is now an only child...lol... it's exciting to see them do things for each other... dd2's car broke down...only car...and she is the one 9 months pregnant... yea...not good timing... she also had a doc appointment the next day..and considering her being 9 months pregnant...lol...she really needs to go to these... before i knew it, dd1 tells dd2 and her husband to bring the car over and that dd1's husband will fix it and that while it's being fixed, they can borrow her car for the doctors... wohoo!!! God is good. Then yesterday, dd2 wanted to come over to visit...i said meet me there, i might be a few... she stopped and got her brother his favorite pop... just because (and it wasn't even just because day...lol) so i get home and starting to prep for dinner... i told dd2 what we were having, which was baked hot boneless wings...which she hates...but i told her i would make some not sauced up...she said not to worry that she wasn't eating, she had just ate... i then went into ds's room to tell him what we were having, and the first thing out of his mouth was "what about Cathie" lol...i thought that was so cute that he not only knew and remembers that she hates hot stuff...but he actually cared enough to ask and possibly do without one of his own favorite dinners for the night...

I love watching them interact with each other...i always have anyways, but so much more so now that they aren't at each others throat all the time...lol. Again i will say, God is good...He has blessed me with some honestly wonderful kids!

  


Getting Rid Of 5 Things

Thursday, August 18, 2011

This month I have been getting ready for grandbaby, and this week especially I have been focused on getting rid of clutter...1 piece at a time. That is my goal-just get rid of something everyday...my goal is to use it up or throw it out...and donate what i can. Today's daily dare for our Teams was to get rid of 5 things...i came up with it and yet, i really didn't think i could come up with 5 things...then i went into the refrigerator...uh...ick...i haven't done the refrigerator for a couple weeks due to busy schedule and being sick... so i tackle it... i found a piece of ham, long forgotten...and gross...so 1 thing gone... oh, some veggie soup i can have for lunch...except i got so excited that it landed on the floor...2 things gone... chili from last week...gone... oh, just enough watermelon for a serving...breakfast here it comes... 4 things now gone... i found an old bun...just 1 lonely bun...hard as a rock...gone... then i realize...that's 5 things... i did it..i made not only my personal goal of 1 thing a day, but todays daily dare of 5 things... wohoo...and then i see a quarter bag of frito's... stale... gone... i just bypassed goal and it's still early... i haven't even gone to work yet. and then i see the chicken and noodle parmasan that i forgot to put in the freezer the other night... still good... that's lunch and another thing gone... so now my refrigerator is empty...lol... and goals met... now ready for more healthy food to go in :)

    I haven't been getting the daily dares either, but then I don't get on the computer much during the day. Today we had an earthquake and that shook me up in more ways than one, lol.

    I like this idea ~ getting rid of something/s every day, rather than trying to do a huge clearing out on a given day, which can be very stressful and overwhelming. The atmosphere at your place must be filled with excitement, nerves and extreme happiness about baby's arrival. Have a great weekend, JoDee!

    Way to go - it sounds like my need to do Baby Steps - and I am winning.

We moved, last year, from a five bedroom farm house with three out buildings to a two bedroom apartment. Next, we'll be moving with only a pick up truck (with cap) and a mini van. To save gas money, we may pack up the truck and park it until we get some steady pay cheques coming in. I need to keep downsizing and only have 13 days maximum to do it in. It is becoming a little scary. I don't want to waste anything, including time. Thankfully we have a donation center just a block away! :-D I've walked there, many times with arm-loads of things and it's even convenient to drop off with the van as I'm heading out for other things as well. :-D

Yesterday Was BAD!!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

I don't know what got into me, but i didn't eat breakfast, which set me up for total failure the rest of the day...i ended up at McDonalds and didn't get the salad...oh no... went for the nuggets, fires and coke...and not diet either...then later chips and dip... what's up with that?? and then depression... or did that start before the food?? ok, i was starting to get testy before the bad food choices... and then just this weepy depressed mood fell over me towards the end of the night... so the testy part was a precursor to the depression...and making all the wrong food choices and not exercising like i should came before the actual depression part of it... but i did end up getting some exercise in, and i drank 12 cups of water.

Today, I pick myself up and move forward... all in all, i still stayed under my calorie amount...they just were not wise choices and made me feel even more icky than if i had stayed with healthy foods.

    I made a "food" in my favorites that says....

"skipped breakfast, I'm gonna pay for this!!!" I actually track it...

Whenever I don't eat breakfast now I have a bad food day... and you are right in wondering what comes first the mood or the food.. Glad you got back on track!

You know how to do this! You've been doing it! hoorah!

    We all have our days when we stumble off the path. It's good that you have picked yourself up and moved forward!! emoticon

Getting through the workout

Friday, August 12, 2011

Well, now that i have been kicking up my work out, i am finding my bike riding longer and my treadmill time longer...in the beginning, it wasn't hard to keep myself entertained... but now, with 20 minutes on the bike and most days 40 on the treadmill...well... i'm finding myself actually bored...lol. i am so ADD that it is not funny... this is why i usually give up on working out...i just get too bored... let me tell you how ADD i am...on the treadmill, i have my music on, and i watch tv...and sometimes, i have a book open and to read also...lol... during my bike ride this is time i usually read my bible and pray... this all still is not enough sometimes...so i am learning to take this time to also count my blessings...this i found kept my mind busy and made the time go much faster :)

  


I'm Getting A Treadmill

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Wohoo...i am so excited :) My new work out plan has been including riding my stationary bike for 20 minutes before work, then after work i go to the gym to do 40 minutes on the treadmill...and while i do love this, there are some disadvantages...for one, the cost...i could really use that $34 a month somewhere else...though i have made my health top priority, thus i did it...it's not always convenient... but hey... it never is...lol... but as life gets crazy, as it often does, there is just no way to get to the gym every day... like yesterday when i had planned to, then dd2's husband had to go into work unexpectedly...so dd2 wanted me to go to the doctors with her... after all was said and done, there was just no way to drive to the gym on the other side of town...not to say i would of had the gas to do so...lol. and then there are those times, like this weekend, when the gym will be closed for 3 days for their annual cleaning...uhg! So i had told son that i would just go over to grandma's, who has a treadmill, and use hers... with my asthma, i just cannot do it outside at this time of year, so i would go over there... but i was planning on getting one of my own in a couple months... well... it just so happens that my mom no longer wants hers... wohoo!!!! all i have to do is find someone to get it from there to here...and it's mine...all mine...lol... of course, now i am waiting to here back from my SIL to see if he will help... let's cross our fingers and hope i won't have to go another day without my daily treadmill work out :)
