It's the little things...

Sometimes it is just the little things that mean the most...

...a hug from my oldest DURING a baseball game, he didn't even care that everyone saw it!

...a text from Titan Boy just checkin to see how my day was going.

...a quick lunch with a friend just to catch up for fifteen minutes (life can be soo busy!)

...the sunshine finally warming things up

Inquiring Minds....

With three kids there is rarely a question presented to me that I have not answered before in some know the ones...why is the sky blue, etc etc. That is until last night, the littlest Tahoe threw me a curve ball with this one...

TT: Where does poop live?

TG: Um, what? Do you mean before or after it comes out?

TT: After it comes out, where does it live?

TG: Well, we flush it down the potty and then it goes to a water treatment plant.

TT: Oh, then what do they do with it? Cause it has to live somewhere!

TG: Well, the clean the water and then use it for other things.

TT: Do they use soap to wash it?

TG: Yes, strong soap, VERY strong soap.

TT: Oh ok, can we go visit my poop after they wash it?

At this point I exited the bathroom. How do you tell a 3 yr old you cannot go visit his poop? He already has a hard enough time "letting it go" and I don't want to scar him for life!

This one is gonna be a challenge...

Time to confess...

Ok, some of you are going to think I am crazy or a whiny b*itch but I have to confess nonetheless.

My entire life I have heard "Your so skinny" "If I was your size I would wear a bikini everyday" "You must have good genes" etc etc etc etc

SO i have spent the last few years taking advantage of that situation and ladies it has finally caught up with me.

Lately I have realized that my "comfy" jeans are tight and uncomfy. My muffin top has become a "Big Top Cupcake" top! and well there is no chance in hell I am even thinking about bathing suits anytime soon. The truth is I have gained SEVEN pounds in FIVE weeks! SERIOUSLY!

I am also extremely out of shape and am embarrassed to what extreme this has gotten to! I have finally looked my self in the mirror and decided....


So far I have given up Starbucks (1 week in) minimized the amount of Cokes I drink (their stock might drop due to this) started taking vitamins and dragged the treadmill out of storage! (Tonight I ran/walked two miles and didnt keel over, yeah me!)

Now don't go sending me comments with extreme ideas cause those are not gonna happen, I like carbs and sugar and I am still gonna eat them BUT not the same way I used to. I am not gonna swill 800 calories each morning in my coffee (yes I said 800 CALORIES IN MY COFFEE!!!!) and I am gonna get moving!

SO wish me luck and I hope I am not too grumpy while I begin this trek. I have always taken "skinny" for granted and just cause people are a size 6 doesn't mean they are healthy!

Soon to be fitter,

OMG people, these damn dogs make me do grosser s**t than my kids do!

Never did I think about these things 14 years ago when I adopted the two little puff balls.They were my first children and now they are my first senior citizens to care for! They are 85+ years old in people years and turns out there is not an old folks home for dogs....
