Day 12 of the Summer 30 Day Challenge here please

Friday, July 12, 2013

I am so happy to report that both kids did not have any cavities! Whoo hoo!
So for a "reward" for taking such good care of their teeth I took them to the dollar store and got them both a hat and a new item for school. ( NO CANDY! lol)

BUT they both have to go to the orthodontist. The dentist suspects missing teeth from both kids!

How much is THAT going to cost????

I got about 800 words done today on my phone and just too busy the rest of the day to do much writing. I vacuumed for 90 minutes ( my cleaning job) and popped in at the Library.
I was looking for a DVD for Dh and I to watch together, but there really wasn't much choice....

BUT...I am happy to say that next week, on Thursday I am going to go to the PROPER Movies! The movie theater outing is to celebrate turning 42! yikes! WE are going to see the latest Johnny Depp movie! ( The Lone Ranger)

Salads and left overs for lunch and dinner today....I will have more time to prepare food tomorrow! The flax seed granola for breakfast was delicious! I really do love that!

I will need to make more soon, I have enough for tomorrow...

I just started reading another book where the main character struggles with weight and the urge to overindulge...only on chapter 2...but I will let you know what I think of it.

It is called "Good Enough To Eat" by Stacey Ballis. It's another book that sort of fell off the shelf and jumped out at me at the Library! LOL Does that happen to you?

I saw these roses at the grocery store the other I stopped and instead of smelling the roses took a pic! haha!
Do you stop to smell the roses?

    Congrats on the dental check-ups! Boo on orthodontics. lol

I took last night as my rest day. Keep forgetting about them and Friday is the perfect time with end-of-week work exhaustion. No sugar though:)

As for the flowers, Yes I do stop to smell them. Literally noticed those flowers on the trail hike and it helped us when we were lost. The trails were not well marked and we didn't know which way to go towards the end. Well, we pass these lovely pink flowers and I say to my friend, oh I remember those pink beauties, oh and that boulder, we go this way. I was spot on!!! Friend was shocked that I noticed them and that I remembered them after 2 hours:) They are like my pretty bread crumbs along the path.

    Have to use my get ouf of jail card for yesterday.
Haven't really been thinking straight, but tomorrow
will be a better day. Glad to hear about the kids and
not having cavities. My son is 25 and still has baby teeth...
The orthodontist told me that it is a good thing for me(mum)
as he might still have them for another 10 years and then
he will ahve to pay for them himself, ha ha.
Have a great weekend. Let us know what the movie is like.
Whwn my son was little, I used to make up bedtime stories
about the Lone Ranger and then he'd go off to sleep.

    Well done, kids and Mummy!
Yes - I often stop to admire flowers at florists, the supermarket and in gardens

Thought I might have to use a Get out of Jail card today - but ... had to get up at 3a.m. to say goodbye to Brazilian student, so didn't sleep much beforehand; then not much sleep after other than missing the next alarm - so.... no gym today. Going to early Bastille Day celebration in the winelands with my friend/neighbour and then I remembered that we will be walking around there, will have a neighbourhood walk this afternoon, and I'll be walking to Rugby with DBB tonight, including 102 stairs, so no GOOF card required - Yeehah!

Although there will be cheese at the Celebration, I promise not to touch the yellow stuff or any of the wonderful artisan breads

    Oy, my daughter is missing a bunch of teeth..not surprising, since my brother, my dad, and I are all missing multiple teeth! Just means orthodontic work to come...
