TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

10 Things Thursday

Today is Thursday which means..........................10 Things Thursday!  This Thursday tradition was started by Laura at Beer, Dogs and Getting Healthier.

1.  I have just gotten home from running errands.  I have been gone since 8:30 a.m. this morning.  Between home stuff, kid stuff, husband stuff and PTO stuff I am beat!  I am turning off the cell phone and cleaning my house tomorrow.  In peace, in my jammies and with loud music.

2.  I just remembered I have a conference in the morning with my daughter's principal.  It seems a boy in her class has been calling her profane names, shooting her birds and tearing holes in her $80.00 Adidas.  I am going to make sure he no longer sits next to her in any classes.  I am sure the school would much rather move him than have me sit between them the whole day (yes, I have threatened to go back to 5th grade).

3.  This past Saturday while on our morning walk up the hill a bobcat walked about 100 yds. in front of us.  It was about as tall as my waist.  It stopped looked at us and crossed the road.  This is not an unpopulated area.  And it was not scared.......at all!  I guess we will have to start carrying a rifle or handgun on our walks.  This is Texas, so a concealed weapon is not out of the question :)  Too bad I don't own any firearms.

4.  I will NEVER take a stool softener, drink coffee and go on a walk again.  I am glad I can laugh at myself because accidents do occasionally happen.  Enough said.

5.  I am so looking forward to Saturday!  I get to meet some fellow Texas bloggers in Waco for lunch.  I can not wait! 

6.  Tomorrow is haircut day.  I really wanted to bob it off but hubby said he loves it long.  He told me it is like having a hot new wife with long hair and a better body.  I guess I can't argue with that!

7.  So many of you have motivated me to do this..... I  began to run this week!  That is so crazy to me.  I am doing the C25K training.  Tomorrow will be my 3rd day this week.  You know what?  I LOVE it!  I never thought that I would say those words.  I like to run.

8.  I keep thinking I am coming down with a cold but I have made myself keep working out.  I think I am sweating out the germs.  Is that possible?

9.  My mind is jello right now.  I can't think.  I am that tired.

10.  Oh, the puppies have their eyes open and are starting to get mobile.  They will be ready for new homes soon..........thank you Jesus!

That's it!  Have a great night!


  1. I so enjoyed reading this.

    I must comment on the bob cat issue though. I would be freaking scared to death. Where I live in Georgia, we don't see that! lol I would never be able to walk there again.(honestly)

    Moving on. lol

    Husbands, kids, bad kids(school), errands, etc., we mothers have a busy stressful life.

    Again, enjoyed reading.


  2. So jealous that y'all live close enough to meet for lunch!

  3. LOL @ #4!! HAHA!

    Can't wait to see you Saturday!

  4. my fiance escorted my 10 yr old stepson to 5th grade yesterday! he's being a little prick so we hoped it would embarrass him enough to straighten him up... we weren't that lucky...(SIGH).

    We had a mountain lion spotted in the middle of the city about 30 mins from where I live last week! scary!! and IL doesn't have CHL so you're SOL I guess!!

  5. Can't wait to see you tomorrow! :)

  6. I haven't cranked the music and cleaned in forever....maybe on Sunday.
    YEAH!!! You're running!! YEAH!!! I never thought i'd ever run, let alone sign up for a 5K. But I love it too. Well, it's a love hate relationship currently. It makes you feel so good, right?!

  7. awwww....#4 stinks (literally). i'm fairly certain that we've all experienced that at one point. sorry that happened!

    sounds like you had a crazy busy day. how'd the meeting with the principal go?
