It has been more like spring then summer, I miss the sun, the heat. So tired of dreary cloudy sky. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

It has been more like spring then summer, I miss the sun, the heat. So tired of dreary cloudy sky. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:20:25 EST camping yes or no? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745157 Wanting to go camping this weekend but the but the weather man can't make up his mind on whether or not it's going to rain! If it is going to rain the entire time we don't want to go! Anyway here's to hoping!!! Wed, 23 Jul 2014 18:04:05 EST appointments and gym? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744226 At 2:00 this afternoon myself and the two youngest boys have eye doctor appointments and then at 4:30 I see the foot dr. in the hopes of getting new shoes, ones that I like?? Not these things that I have been wearing for over a year that make me walk and stand differently! Also like to figure out what can be done other then shots for the constant pain in both big toes that I think was originally caused by the shoes, and probably get shots in my heals so he can tell me "your cured" which is a ... Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:31:14 EST movie "Home Run" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743575 So the movie "Home Run" we watched last night and it is a good movie, you get REALLY frustrated with the main character - Scott Elrod several times, and you are on the edge of your seat a couple times with worry, I cried twice. Has my happy Hollywood ending! Mon, 21 Jul 2014 16:36:11 EST 3 movies to discuss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742999 First the movie "The Vow" (rented for $1.20), was a good movie but not one I will buy, some moments were really good, others were boring close to sleep kind of spots, did have a happy ending. 2nd movie "Joe" was not our kind of movie, father got what he deserved in the end would not recommend, not what we expected Nicholas Cage to be in (also rented). Final movie "sex tape", ok this movie we saw in the theater and yes it was a good movie although there were some really dozing parts but there ... Sun, 20 Jul 2014 21:56:16 EST shopping, shopping and more shopping! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742369 Went shopping at the mall (Joane fabrics and Lane Bryant's), Wal-mart, pet land, pet smart (sale right now is buy 2 get 1 free on dog and cat toys, treats for both and so much more!), hobby lobby, tractor supply, Kroger's and big lots! Got lots for Christmas, and birthdays and of course snacks and toys for the animals for now and Christmas and got all my steps in, not bad for a rest day if you ask me! Even got me 4 new bras from Lane Bryants, they are having a great sale buy 2 get 2 free so ... Sat, 19 Jul 2014 22:05:23 EST My daughter's best friend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741616 This evening my oldest daughters best friend is coming over in the hopes I can teach her how to crochet. I have been able to teach 3 of my kids and they were younger at the time so I should be able to teach her. Years ago I tried to teach my cousin when she was about 10 I couldn't teach her she could not learn from me and I lost patients and sent her to her sister. She learned eventually but it took quite a while. I hope this goes easy! Fri, 18 Jul 2014 16:10:40 EST Birthday flowers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740905 So yesterday I received flowers from friends for my birthday, they are very pretty I will try to add a pic to this blog later. Anyway we have cats and my daughters cat LOVES flowers, any flowers, she LOVES to eat them! So we put them on the very top of the entertainment center and she spent yesterday trying to get to them by getting on the lower part of the entertainment center even though she knows better then to get up there, or at least she knows she gets in trouble when we catch her on it... Thu, 17 Jul 2014 15:45:39 EST today is my birthday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740202 Today is my birthday and for those of you who are wondering hubby took me out to eat at the beginning of the week and she made a homemade peach pie. I am not having a party or anything like that but my kids will buy me stuff and give it to me over the weekend. So I am not really doing anything special but I am going to the gym. Wed, 16 Jul 2014 15:34:44 EST made a peach pie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5739577 Hubby made a peach pie for my birthday tomorrow, the calories are lower then cake and I will have a small piece. I haven't ever had homemade peach pie so this will be new for me and the kids but not for her all her recipes come from her mom and her grandma. Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:52:56 EST intervals again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738835 I don't know what it is about intervals but I really like them. It doesn't matter what the intervals consist of from doing repetitions of different things in an order that you do again and again or just what I did today with walk 4 minutes and run 1 for a half hour. Maybe it's that I don't get board, I don't know but I worked hard and feel good. Mon, 14 Jul 2014 19:06:36 EST Dinner out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738140 So we have Mexican restaurants in our area and I have been wanting to try some, so today we went to La Finca....Well it smelt really BAD, but we got seated and looked at menu's and they had pictures that looked really BAD and most of there dishes had something to do with seafood??? Well not finding anything on the menu we dared try we left and went to Fiesta Bravo and it smelt amazing! We ordered and wow there was so much food! It was just the 2 of us and we ended up with 3 take home containe... Sun, 13 Jul 2014 20:33:30 EST my rest day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5737455 was hoping to break up my walks but it looks like I am going to have to double up and that is fine but was hoping not to take all the kids at the same time. When I separate them they don't all fight to be heard which can be aggravating! Sat, 12 Jul 2014 17:37:29 EST did intervals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736962 did intervals of walking and jogging, went shopping and walking. Later I will do 30 minutes on the elliptical and then hopefully after dinner my oldest daughter and I will walk around the park. Not sure it depends on how she feels cause she is at work right now. Fri, 11 Jul 2014 21:22:45 EST aggravating! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736277 I went to remix today like I do every Thursday only today after finding a space to stand and the first song is almost over a late comer comes in. This is no big deal after all I am late all the time, however instead of adding herself on to the end of one of the 4 lines she decides to squeeze in between me and the girl on the end of my row and it wouldn't have been a big deal if there was room, but there wasn't, actually there were probably one too many on my row to begin with. Anyway as the n... Thu, 10 Jul 2014 20:51:28 EST my whole body is shaking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735559 So today I did zumba-hiphop from 5:30 - 6:25 and then cross box from 6:30 - 7:25 and now I am home and my whole body is shaking! What a workout. Later after dinner I hope to get a walk in around the park otherwise it will be done on the treadmill! Wed, 9 Jul 2014 19:45:45 EST rained http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734694 Not complaining we really need the rain but it didn't even rain for an hour and I had to get picked up in the middle of walk because of how hard it was coming down, after all fit bit is not water proof. Tue, 8 Jul 2014 15:54:18 EST this week sub at Y http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734073 For this week only Josh is subbing for Kelsey which is AWESOME!!!! Why is it awesome? So I don't like Kelsey's classes, it's nothing against her, honestly I just don't think she should be teaching anything. She doesn't motivate she doesn't give you any instruction, she just starts moving and watching herself in the mirror. Anyway I went to Josh's class and he is a lot like the woman who use to do the classes Kelsey took over so you can imagine his class was packed! Not very many people show ... Mon, 7 Jul 2014 20:19:03 EST A slow day for me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733299 I am so not going to tell you what time I actually got motivated to do anything except to say it was in the afternoon! I can't believe time just got away from me while reading....Oh well got a 20 minute treadmill done, and a walk to the store. Still have a 30 minutes elliptical planned and a 30 minute treadmill before I call it a night. Sun, 6 Jul 2014 19:25:46 EST Transformer movie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5732678 Well, I have to say certain acts of brutality in the movie would keep me from letting young children see it. I am not saying it was a bad movie, I am only saying the brutality was not necessary in a movie that I believe kids are going to want to see, I am also certain that the makers would have known this so it concerns me with what some people would expose kids to. Sat, 5 Jul 2014 19:15:47 EST our trip through the wild safari http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731974 This was a park you got to drive through and feed the animals, only rules - <BR> <BR> 1. don't get out of the vehicle (we obeyed) <BR> 2. don't feed the zebras, zdonks, emus or any other bird cause they bite (NO ONE OBEYED, not even the other vehicles in front or behind us, but they didn't bite.) <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/8/l1852088589.jpg"> <BR> <BR> the Buffalo ate a lot! Liked to slobber all over you with there huge tongues and they loved to be pet too!...

Hope to walk to the river front to see what is going on for the 4th of July summer motion. Will be going to Wal-mart to watch the fire works with our oldest daughter (she works there), we went last year and we had a good time. Thu, 3 Jul 2014 12:11:42 EST Update on Digger http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730684 Talked to dad this morning and Digger is doing pretty good. Dad through the ball a couple times and unlike here he did not bring it back so dad will continue working on that. He follows dad and Esther all over the house, which is cute. He only once ran off once and it wasn't that far but dad yelled 4 times and picked up his news paper and Digger hauled butt all the way home. Wed, 2 Jul 2014 15:23:46 EST home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5730166 Vacation is over and we are home. We left Digger with dad and Esther and we hope they will work out well! I brought home some more things that were my mom's a long with pictures. It was hard to leave but I knew it would be. Hope all goes well so they will be able to come here next summer. Tue, 1 Jul 2014 22:45:31 EST didn't get to spark http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729469 I didn't get to do any spark but this blog. Went through pics with my dad, ran out of time, but it's OK. Mon, 30 Jun 2014 23:59:08 EST Fun Junction http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728578 It use to be called Dixieland, but now I believe it is called Fun Junction. It is a very small, nothing fancy amusement park. We took 4 of 6 kids with us, the other 2 didn't want to go so they stayed with PaPa and Esther. We had a good time, there was go carts, some rides and miniature golf and some arcade games a long with skiiball. Tomorrow we go to the cola space center and Hibachi grill for dinner. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 20:21:25 EST Animal Safari http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727964 We went to the Animal Safari. The drive threw was great, we pet and fed so many animals! The kids all had a great time feeding and petting animals such as buffalo, emu, ostriches, deer and so much more even a giraffe. Now the part you walk through the food machines were empty, there water if they had any was not drinkable, it made us upset to see there water but we still got to see the animals and they weren't in bad shape so we couldn't really say much. Anyway today was even better then yes... Sat, 28 Jun 2014 21:06:20 EST how was six flags? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727438 We all had a good time, but really tired. Hope everyone had a good night Fri, 27 Jun 2014 23:31:39 EST Tomorrow Six Flags http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726593 So tomorrow we are suppose to go to Six Flags, hope we have fun, hope it doesn't rain.

We hope they will be very happy together. Wed, 25 Jun 2014 19:27:43 EST Hubby took time out to go get my movie! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725195 So I saw it at the theater and loved it, so had to have it!!!! "Winter's Tale", it is a love story and it is really good! We were busy busy busy today with packing and loading and last minute things so I was really surprised when she said we were going to go get it cause she promised when it came out it would be mine! So tomorrow I will do spark on the road and by evening when all is done and I can finish what is left on spark it will be in Georgia! Be back in a week, but all our babies (anim... Tue, 24 Jun 2014 22:03:31 EST not a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5724355 <em>46</em> Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:36:49 EST Walked to Wal-mart http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723625 Yesterday I walked to Wal-mart after game stop to pick up 2 scripts and a couple of things needed. If I had realized that by the time I got there pharmacy would be closed I would have just walked to Kroger's it would have been on my way home anyway. Well I didn't and they were so today I walked back to Wal-mart and got the scripts with a couple of other things by the time I got home I had over my 10,000 steps! Awesome for me! Sun, 22 Jun 2014 20:39:00 EST so much walking today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722992 Good thing it is my rest day so I only get my 10,000 steps. I walked two kids to urgent care (nothing serious), now walking to game stop, then big lots and maybe Wal-mart...not sure yet. Sat, 21 Jun 2014 19:48:41 EST Digger today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722451 Today Digger isn't really coughing/wheezing so I think the medicine is working or at least the suppressor is working, time will tell. Dad has a lot to teach him, he wont stay in the yard, but dads yard is bigger. He doesn't like cats which is good for dad bad for us since we have 8 and he keeps antagonizing them lol. Otherwise we have to watch him with our dogs, and he hates to be alone but these things are fine since he will be dad and Esther's only dog and they don't often go anywhere he ca... Fri, 20 Jun 2014 23:08:36 EST So Digger is coughing/wheezing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721625 Yes Digger the puppy that we rescued is coughing/wheezing! Yes he was doing it when we got him but the woman at the pound insisted that it was because he was choking himself. So we took him home and he was still doing it and today there was more of the same. Called the pound they told us to take him to the vet and so we did. They have no idea what is wrong, could be a number of upper respiratory problems and to be honest they didn't want to run the tests to find out. Now weather or not it's b... Thu, 19 Jun 2014 20:50:28 EST got a puppy for my dad and Esther http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721009 So we searched and searched for a puppy to bring to Georgia for my dad and Esther and finally we found a lab he is barely a year old and we sent pics by fb to my dad and they loved him! He has a very sad story, he was a stray that for what ever reason was shot with buck shot in the testicles. He had to be neutered because of it but other then some obvious scars he doesn't have any issues from what happened to him. I think Digger will be very happy with my dad and Esther! Wed, 18 Jun 2014 23:12:20 EST My hubby has a day off tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5720156 It is amazing she has a day off! No idea what we are going to do other then plant a few things but what ever it is we will do it together, I might even skip cross box which is one of my favorite classes!! Tue, 17 Jun 2014 21:09:27 EST shopping to day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5719439 Went and exchanged 2 pairs of pants for our youngest son. Apparently he is now in men clothing. No more boy clothes and no more girl clothes all my babies are all grown up...I want one more baby.... Anyway he now has some pants and got some shorts for Becky and now we need swimming trunks for our middle son cause he out grew his. Mon, 16 Jun 2014 22:36:58 EST For fathers day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5718622 For father's day, first hubby got - another fishing pole, sun glasses (that I owed her already cause of a pair she broke for me (long story)), a bunch of fishing stuff, and a sign. Then her and I walked to the mall I got her 3 pairs of jeans, a mini loaf pan, we had lunch (split a baha-mama), and later snack was a frozen yogurt we shared. Our oldest boy is getting her a box of cologne and our oldest daughter is making a dolphin puzzle and framing it (hubby loves dolphins but not doing the puz... Sun, 15 Jun 2014 18:43:06 EST the dinner and movie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5718151 The dinner not so good. Golden coral has always been my favorite tonight it was yuck! Food over cooked, dry and service sucked. The dessert bar doesn't apply to me but they changed it and hubby didn't like it. The movie was good, there is an unnecessary death (parent taking young kids if you want info message me). Sat, 14 Jun 2014 23:35:01 EST weighing a day early http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5717446 Going to weigh tomorrow instead of Sunday so I can go to dinner tomorrow night with hubby and and friends after a movie. No it doesn't mean I will eat badly it's just that normally Saturday is rest day which means I don't eat anything beyond fruits, veggies, smoothies and salads. So that is what I did today and no rest day this week, but that is ok, wont bother me at all! Fri, 13 Jun 2014 20:58:51 EST was a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5716829 I went to the gym, did remix and aqua toning. Then did some swimming and diving. Got more tadpoles for my pond. Went for a walk later with hubby and Christopher, Christopher bought flowers and a vase for his girl friend. Hubby bought subway for dinner (mine in a bowl, no bread for me on Thursdays). Then on the walk home hubby saw a male young kitty in the parking lot of speedway (gas station), so of course hubby saved it and then we walked it over to this area called cat alley where a little ... Thu, 12 Jun 2014 22:51:16 EST Gong to the Y finally http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5715881 I didn't get to go Monday or Tuesday, still got my exercise done but really missing cross box and water toning so I am going tonight! Wed, 11 Jun 2014 15:18:06 EST The movie The Fault In Our Stars... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5715246 Went and watched the movie "The Fault In Our Stars". I have to say it is a good movie, all saps out there (myself included) bring kleenex. Beware if you are looking for a Happy Hollywood ending DON'T watch this movie otherwise it is a good movie. Tue, 10 Jun 2014 20:50:16 EST well it is official going to Georgia to see my dad! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5714533 Yes that is right everyone got the vacation time they needed, money saved and trip planned now all we gotta do is pack and go! I like not having to rush through and wait til the last minute. Hope everyone has a good week. Mon, 9 Jun 2014 21:58:58 EST The movie was BAD! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5713758 The movie we went to see with friends was "The Edge Of Tomorrow". It sucked! Do not watch this movie. With that said we still enjoyed the time with friends! So at least it wasn't a complete waste of time. Sun, 8 Jun 2014 22:42:49 EST hubby fishing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5713092 so we down at river front and hubby and oldest are fishing, middle and youngest sons playing there hand held game systems. My youngest daughter and I are chitchatting while I do spark. Sat, 7 Jun 2014 22:24:56 EST Went to the lake http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5712415 So amazingly enough we all went to the lake! All 8 of us, now yes Timmy had to leave at 1:00 for work but still we all went, and had a good time. Of course some of us burnt AGAIN! Yes me, and I use my peanut oil because when I use it I tan really nice and don't burn but today it didn't work! Oh well, lots of aloe and solarcaine and no problem. Fri, 6 Jun 2014 23:16:11 EST
