    Thanks Just4ME

    OK, I like that too. Good to know for future pics.

    It did look good. Probably because I didn't do it...I spent ALL the set up time staring at a computer, trying to make the slide show work...

      Today is my 23rd wedding anniversary.

      I did a tiny bit of math today (not my favorite subject) and I realized that I weigh 23 lbs MORE than I did on my wedding day.

      That's a pound a year...

      OR just over 5 lbs / child...

      hmmmm

            #2 Avoid Poisons
            Fail.
            I visited my parents at the food booth they run at a trailer park. I ate gummy worms and had some Carmel Carmel Cup Ice Cream (chocolate & vanilla swirled with carmel and LOADED with mini ROLO cups!!!!!) Then my mom gave me some to take home…

            #3 Move Slowly
            Not really

            #4 Lift Heavy
            PBF Body Weights

            Nope

            #6 Sleep
            Stayed up reading Lord of Chaos (Wheel of Time series) until almost 2am, then slept in till 10:30 am

            #8 Sunlight
            Nope and I forgot my vit D

            #9 Avoid Stupid Mistakes
            For some reason when I go to the booth, it’s a real struggle to stay away from the tub of gummy worms and the ice cream freezer…I can leave the fresh cut fries alone, and I can leave the bun off my burger, but my sweet tooth gets me every time

            #10 Use Your Brain
            My parents were having problems connecting to the Internet, so I went out and fixed it for them. It took about an hour. THEN I went to the booth…(that wasn’t using my brain)


            Sunday (Today) My 23rd Wedding Anniversary

            #1 Food

            #7 Play
            A little bit in the am with my dh, until we were almost caught by my 15 year old dd. Then I laughed till I had tears in my eyes

            #8 Sunlight
            not really, but I took my Vit. D

            #9 Avoid Stupid Mistakes
            I did really good until supper. Then it all went to hell in a KFC bucket…

            #10 Use Your Brain
            Not a good day.
            We had to drive an hour & a half to visit my dh’s aunt in the hospital. We saw her Labour Day weekend and she was fine. 1 ½ weeks ago she had a stroke. Then they discovered that she has a rapidly growing brain tumor behind her eye. They can’t operate. Her vision is going in her right eye, and its affecting her speech and her comprehension. They are talking weeks. Maybe.

            But she was sitting up, smiling and talking while we were there. A little confused, but better than we’d been expecting.

                Thanks! But I need you to kick my butt. 'Cause I'm all about pacing myself "Slow out of the gate"...I need to push myself harder.

                I hope you had a great Monday too!

                  its a hard road kicking the sugar habit. Mentally you'd think it would be easy, just say no, blah blah blah, you know its bad for you, blah blah blah, but it is no fun whatsoever denying yourself something that you really think you want.

                  Happy 23rd wedding anniversary! In an uncertain world, isnt it lovely to still have that certainty.

                    I drove around to several schools and passed out my business card, for supply work…THEN I went to my friend’s house (see above)

                    #10 Use Your Brain
                    Easy day. Did some on-line research on a MLM company my friend wants me to join…

                    Dh stayed home with me this afternoon, until his apt. with the eye doc. He’s developed a spot in his vision. Doc says it’s either a broken blood vessel or a separation of the layers at the back of his eye (yeah, a real technical description). He has to see a specialist. I’m a bit worried…

                    Took my daughter to her Physio apt. She’s recovering from an ACL operation.

                    Son # 3 (18 yrs) went to the army recruiting office today. Not really sure how I feel about that…

                        My daughter had the munchies last night, so we melted a small Brie in the oven. I put red pepper jelly on top and we ate the whole thing! Yes, I used a few crackers...I thought she'd freak if I just used a spoon. This was my 1st wheat cheat in September, so I thought that was pretty good. I tried to put as much cheese on each cracker as I could, to limit the wheat

                        It was SO good....

                          dontcha just hate it when something is soooo good. It just makes it all the harder to give up. I use rice crackers now not wheat, I figure, well, at least they're gluten free.

                                Two glasses of wine. A bowl of my father in laws plums. A row of dark chocolate.

                                Then this evening I got the munchies, you know, when you are not really hungry, but your mouth is hungry? Well I had a tomato, fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar salad…still not enough, so I had a chocolate covered ice cream on a stick…
