A day at the park....

It was just gorgeous out!

Dogpile on Dad. Yes, he's really under there!

A lesson in static electricity.


The Boy got grumpy for some reason.

My favorite shot of the day. King of the mountain!

The Magic 30...

It's time for me to start this again!

I know how hard it is to just get everything done in a day, let alone try to squeeze in excercise! So I've come up with, what I call, The Magic 30. I've done this off and on for years and when I do it consistantly it really makes a difference.

Remember those old basics we had to do in gym class in school? Well they WORK!

During the course of the day, I try to do 30 reps of each of these: jumping jacks, push ups, tricep dips, squats, lunges, crunches, reverse crunches, calf raises, and anything else you can think of. You can squeeze in 30 of these just about any ol' time! While you're brushing your teeth, washing your hands, and waiting for the microwave and a few great times. Just get creative. I really do see a difference if I do The Magic 30 regularly.

I've been slacking a lot lately and it's time to pick it up again.

Hey, how are ya?

It was absolutely GORGEOUS here today! Gorgeous, I tell ya. I spent much of the day outside and went for two walks. It was much needed exercise plus it was National Start Walking day or something like that. I took some fun pictures of The Baby too that I'll share later. To be honest, I'm just killing space here because I have to have actual content between paid posts and I have one I'm getting ready to write. ;-) Shhhh!! don't tell!

I will post those baby pics soon though.

D'oh! I had a paid post all written up and posted but when I submitted it to the site hiccuped and so I don't get paid for it after all. Darn.

Hmmm... How is this for talking about something I have absolutely no knowledge or expertise of! If you happen to be in the market for a new pair of 5.11 Tactical pants, is the first stop. They also have under armour, footwear and boots, flashlights and plenty of other equipment. See, I'm tougher than you all think I am, huh? haha!

A little weekend humor...

Don't you love Maxine? I need to find some more of these because I think they're so cute. I do have some that are slightly off color but I'm not sure if I want to post those or not. Haha! Maybe some day when I'm feeling spunky I will.

If poop and a bar of soap are floating around in the same bathtub, does the soap eliminate the poop germs from the water?

I'll spare you the pictures.

Did any of you happen to see Dr. Oz on Oprah yesterday talking about night terrors? I sat and cried while watching it because The Girl has suffered from night terrors since she was a toddler. It's so incredibly frustrating for all of us! She wakes up the entire family, gets violent, screams like a maniac, etc. and has no memory of it in the morning. And of course she's super tired the next day because she hasn't gotten good sleep when she's had terrors. It's a bad cycle. And the more tired she is the more likely she is to have terrors.

Lately there have been a lot of episodes of her puking in her sleep. There is no apparent reason for it, no virus, no other symptoms, and she wakes in the morning feeling fine - just covered in yuck. I've wondered if this is related to the terrors in some way but I don't know. We have a doctor appointment in the morning to start looking into it further.

I have no point to this post, just rambling.

Update: So after a few different tests it was determined that she has severe reflux that's causing the puking. It has nothing to do with the terrors. She's on medication now and so hopefully that issue will be under control. YaY!
