Got back late last night from the beach. The little ones fell asleep on the way home. Didn't do well nutritionally yesterday so I'm staying home today & doing much better. Went for my usual walk, installed a new mailbox (old one was being held on by a bungee cord b/c it had been hit so many times, lol)laundry & did some weeding. Since it's raining I'm going to reward myself w/some reading before having to make dinner. Pretty exciting stuff, ehh. Anyways thanks for stopping by & reading my blog :)

Looking forward to getting my girls back. I'm really bored w/out having to entertain them all day, lol. I'm thankful my mom volunteered to watch my girls this week but I really miss them & when I call it sounds like they miss me too. DH is out golfing w/his colleagues & I went to a few yard sales this am w/my ds w/no luck. Going to go do some retail therapy while I can, lol. Have a great weekend.

"Viewing the world though another's eyes

When baby-proofing a room, what is the best way to do it? You get down on the ground and see the world through the eyes of your baby. Never before have such dangers and opportunities for mischief been so apparent! The same is true with relationships. Many times you may try to empathize with a person by saying "I know how you feel." But do you really? When a person cuts you off in traffic, do you curse them under your breath or throw an angry gesture? What if that person is really just having a hard day, dealing with an unruly toddler in the backseat? Attempting to view the world through another person's eyes builds empathy and thus a deeper understanding of that person. Think about others you conflict with before jumping to conclusions. "

So excited ds is potty training & doing well. This will be his second night in underwear. He's still asleep which is why I can be on here. Took him to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate w/playing games but am happy to say we came home for dinner to be w/my dh. Had a nice walk to & from McD's (this is how we entice the kids to go, lol) w/my spark buddy and best friend w/her girls & boy she watches as well as my son. The boys fell asleep on the stroller ride home in the morning. My girls enjoyed boogie boarding w/my folks @ the beach yesterday & going mini golfing the night before. What are your plans for today?

    Wow! Sounds like your family is doing great! Potty training is a big deal and does affect the entire family. Kudos to your son and you! Today I will be taking the 5 year old gs to preschool and then gd and I will be doing a walk in the mall and then off to the YMCA for a zumba class. Then we'll come home for a tuna salad tea (made up already and will be served tea room style just special for us girls). Have a terrific and safe day. Find the joy in it and keep smiling sunshine. emoticon

    Great news about that potty training. It has been a long time since I had to deal with that but I do remember just how wonderful it was to not have to deal with diapers. Enjoy your kids and have a great day emoticon

Enjoyed going to the beach yesterday w/my mom & the kids. Took another nap in the afternoon before taking ds home after dinner & a little grocery shopping. Not sure if I should head to my friends beach house today or go for a walk w/my spark buddy & then go get the truck inspected? Weighed in this am. Gained back the 3lbs I lost this month :( Maybe I should just go workout, :)
