St. Baldrick's Foundation

I'm so proud of my hubby. Click the link below to find out why....
St. Baldrick's Foundation: Shaun Riley (shavee)

Cookie bribe update.

It didn't work. Logan loved the beef stew. Billy and Ben each took a look at it and passed. I ended up making them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because the beef stew was spicier than even I really like....I couldn't blame them for not eating it.

I baked chocolate chip cookies....

to bribe the boys so they will eat dinner tonight. I have beef stew cooking in the crock pot and I know as soon as it hits the table they'll groan. Wish me luck, I'll let you know if it works or not.

Warning: Dunkin Donuts

Shaun and I love Dunkin Donuts new flat bread sandwiches. Especially the turkey/bacon/cheddar one. *drool*

In my effort to cut calories I figured I'd try the turkey sausage/spinach/cheese sandwich....it was so dry and blah. I took two bites and had to throw it away it was that gross.

You've been warned. :-)

You Are the Warrior



You feel that it's your role to defend and protect society.

You'll fight for what's right, and you especially like fighting for the underdog.



You love getting things done, especially if it means working with your hands.

You also have a great mind for strategy... whether it's military strategy, legal strategy, or chess.



You love being challenged, and you love challenging others. You are eager to prove how powerful you are.

You are ready for a (literal or figurative) fight at any time. Maybe a little too ready.

I finally joined today.
There's a link to my page over there

Milestone for Garrett

He can go from lying down to sitting up all by himself now.
What a big boy!!

Change

Change is good.
I need to remind myself of that.
Just because something changes doesn't mean it's for the worse, it really can be for the best.

Changes in our lives recently:
1. Billy is now in school
I know it's for the best but it's so hard not having at home all day. We've been attached at the hip since he was born almost 6 years ago. Not having him around is hard.
2. Logan's in 4th grade
He has grown up so much. It's amazing how fast baby boys that turned into little boys...turn into big boys. Life just moves too fast for me sometimes.
3. Lifestyle Changes
I need to loose weight. I lost quite a bit after Garrett's c-section but now I need to re-loose about 15lbs of that on top of what I still had to loose. My goal is to be fit by my birthday (I'll be the big 3-0 then).
4. Social Changes
I spend WAY too much time here on my computer. Talking to people who may or may not give a damn. Finding out who does...and who doesn't hurts...so I'm going to take a step back and spend a whole lot less time online and more time sewing/knitting and working on myself instead of trying to help others.
