i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

Grocery shopping, post office, taking my three-year old to the playground, lunch at Friendly's (tuna melts and chocolate shakes), folding laundry (hate it- would rather hang everything), making Mexican for dinner, photographing some artwork, and after DH comes home at 7pm, working for a few hours in my studio.
Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

Messing around online for a bit. Then taking daughter to dance competition out of town, drive home, scarf some leftovers for dinner and take one daughter to ball practice and the other to her first game of the season. Pray it doesn't freeze us solid!

Two term papers (finishing one, writing another from start to end), some pilates, Developmental Psych for my last class before the final, and then MAYBE some time to relax. And also browsing around DC and my other forums when I need a break. :)

I awoke to a very warm house this morning with inside temp @ 79F. The high temp yesterday was about 85F which kept our house warm all night even with whole house ventilation and windows open.

Busy day at work so far but now I am enjoying lunch. Our Faculty/Staff dining room Chef put out a nice end of school year special luncheon for $6.99. It includes a choice of Grilled Rib eye Steak with Onion Rings or Grilled Salmon W/Orange Ginger Glaze served with: Stuffed Potato Cups, Fresh Steamed Asparagus W/Hollandaise Sauce, Caesar Salad, Double Chocolate Cake W/Fresh Raspberries, Roll & Beverage.

When I return home I get to mow the lawn while my wife prepares vegetable lasagna. I may also have to truck along to the market for some Italian bread because I forgot to start a loaf in the bread machine this morning.

Went up to the cemetery this morning, it was mom and dads anniversary yesterday and my dads birthday today.
Took some used books and tapes to St. Vincent De Pauls.
Got a few grocerys.
Had lunch.
Took forever to write out the bills and balance the checkbook.
Thought I would take another walk but then I came in here to check on you guys.
Well the day is half over, lets see what else I can get into.

spent half the night last night holding Maggie my doxie..She is in bad shape and vet says to just keep her comfortable..She refused to eat and only wanted to sit on my lap, so I sat by the bed and just held her til she'd had enough..I know the time is close, but, keep dragging my feet. She has no pain and tries to follow me where ever I go as she always has...Then at six, back aching, head hurting, I got up and started breakfast for the boys and Livi and their mom's..From there I alternated holding Livi, or Carson, breaking up tugs of war over toys or sippy cups, got them a snack, changed 2 diapers each kid, started lunch, fed Maggie again, feed the kids, now all three are napping and lord knows for how long..so here i is folks, and I think my eyes are beginning to cross I'm so pooped..Is the day over yet? What's for dinner you ask? Arggggh


HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna
