Monday Randoms

It's Monday. It's raining. I go back to teaching tonight. Even though I love my job, I'm not ready for full time yet. Better get ready right quick though! ;)

Some Randoms for this rainy, cold Monday...

Rory decided to wake me up this morning by putting her talking Belle doll against the monitor in her room. This resulted in me hearing "HELLO THERE PRINCESS! WOULD YOU LIKE TO READ A STORY?!?" at a super loud volume in my room. While I was still asleep.

Message recieved. Rory was awake.

We went school shopping over the weekend for sweet Rosie girl. She starts pre-K in two weeks! Hard to believe. Dave of course has no clue why we had to go school shopping. He just can't get used to kids not wearing uniforms. ;) We got some AWESOME deals at Kohls and Target over the weekend. Check it out, Mamas.

Oh you want to see a picture of Dave in 9th grade? Where he looks about 7 years old? Okay. I'd be happy to oblige.

Yes, friends. He was 15 in that picture. He says he looks 7 years old. hahahaha BABY DAVEY.
Cracks me up every time.

Trace has pink eye. Again. Second time this summer. He likes to wipe his "diaper contents" all over his room and sometimes it gets in his eye. Thankfully our Pediatrician's office is awesome and knows Trace's bad habit well. They just call us in eye drops each time. Boys can be so gross!

 Look at this swollen eye. :( Poor buddy! He's back to normal now though. :)

 And now I need to complain. I've eaten SO WELL the last week. Low carbs, high protein, high veggie and fruit, lots of water. I've done yoga and walked many times.
And yet.
The scale stayed the same this week. Ugh. So frustrating. But I'm going to keep on keeping on. I have set a goal to lose 30 pounds by Christmas and this time I actually feel capable of achieving that goal. Previous goals have been set and never made. I never felt motivated or ready. A scale day like today in the past would have sent me straight for some Chinese food or french fries. Not today. I saw the scale and went straight for a Green Monster.

That, my friends, is what we call progress.
