I am so proud of myself! I was just in such a slump yesterday, strange mood, unsure of what was going on with me...then Jack said, "Why don't you just go pull some weeds, or something?" And, so I did. I got all of the weeds pulled along the driveway side of the house, and then started thinking...'gosh, the house is really dirty'...(we have vinyl siding), so...I grabbed the car wash brush with the big LONG handle, a bucket, the hose, and some soap, and went to work! Until dark I scrubbed windows, screens, siding, gutters and now the house is *sparkling clean*! I am so glad I got this done, I have been thinking about how much it needed done all month. Especially since it's that time again for backyard birthday parties. Even at dark, I continued working outside, and reshaped/trimmed the mini-tree's we have in front of our house, against the house, and they look, may I brag? AMAZING! I feel like the Super Woman. I think we are all done now for outdoor chores. What a tremendous weight lifted off my shoulders!

The past few days have been a real whirlwind! The girls have been out of school a few days due to conferencing, and so we have been on the go. We have now visited 4 different parks in 3 days! The girls tackel the tallest slide while Beau takes off running like a wild man, and Leah clings like a monkey at my hip. We've had a few bee scares, but no stings (YET!) Seen choo choo's, played tag, spent what seems like forever swinging, climbed a few trees, rolled down a grassy hill, and ate ice cold ice cream on a cone! All with beautiful, radiant skies, the sun making us all glow! I love it! Carefree play days, no worry about dishes, just lay them aside for later, eat lunch outside (share a little with the dog...) Does it get any better than this?

This evening we all went out to play in the backyard, and Beau was running all around kicking balls, and suddenly, he stopped, and said, "MOM! Airplane?" He was trying to see the airplane that he thought he heard flying by, but it was actually a close neighbor tilling his garden, so I said, (Beau repeating after me) "No, it's a tiller a tiller, the man is tilling his garden garden. He is going to make a garden like Daddy, and grow tomatoes tomatoes...and corn corn...and cucumbers cumbers...and eggs!" he suddenly added! I laughed, and said, "NO! Eggs come from chickens, silly boy!" He said, "oh." What an adorable, and innocent idea he had! I just love this age of 2!
I recently joined a women's gym/workout center called Go Figure! The ladies there are amazing, and the workout is just my speed, and it's already making a difference. I also started taking Trim Spa, yeah, I was swayed by Anna Nicole's ad's, but hey, it's really good stuff. You have to drink alot of water with it, so that in and of itself is helping me lose the weight, no more pepsi's, white velvet mocha's, cinnamon dolce latte's...etc...I feel so much less 'yucky'! And, I feel motivated! I feel like I have more energy, and a better overall mood. I have already lost 3lbs in less than a week. After 4 kids, I am so excited to make this wild attempt at getting back to a pre-mommy me! My goal is to be a THIN THIRTY next January! By thin, I mean, 125- 130lbs. It will be my greatest feat yet! Pray for me ladies!
