Looks like you are doing pretty good on clothes. How nice to find some dresses in your closet that you can use for the cruise!

I need a new swimsuit as well, but I refuse to go shopping for one. I'd have to be feeling real good to do that!
Danny told me the other day (I made the comment gas is probably going to hit $5 by the end of the summer--if Saudi Arabia falls, too). I was told than we may not be able to do our fall trip. So, I said oh no buddy we are going even if we have to skip IOA and SW the money I would buy those tickets with will go to fuel and we will just leave Tuesday instead of Monday and that will save one night hotel. He is the one who HAS to visit IOA he may just have to go with us...

Maybe we need to schedule a shopping day for the two of us? might be fun!

many of you are FB friends, too...

the other day I had posted I was finally going to the doctor for a much needed annual checkup (although, my last annual was before Ashton was born -with a GP- and when he was 6 mo old for the other). Well, I had made mention that I would be told high sugar....

the nurse just called; seems very low iron with very high sugar
everything else is normal! she wants to see me back to discuss my sugar....so, I guess I will be eating protein and veggies again (that is what I lived on when I was preggers for Ashton). Told Danny he is eating what I'm eating and I will have to cook something along with our dinner for the boys (as Ashton does not eat meat, normally, and Dayne does his best to stay away from any kind of veggies )....

I know when I see her on the 14th she is going to want to prescribe meds (I find they are always quick to do that) but she will have to hold off on that till about August. That is going to be my self imposed deadline to get my butt back in order.

I had finally made the appointment because I was having chest tightness and an uncomfortable feeling in my chest. She said she felt that was from low iron and that time of the month, since that is when I was having that problem. So, hopefully changing my diet and starting to take an iron supplement I will get more energy and lose some of this weight. Who knows maybe even Danny will loose some of that belly of his.

Well, at least you know what you are dealing with now and can change up your eating habits to, hopefully, fix the problem. I keep telling myself that I need to change the way we all eat in our family. John's two favorite things are bread and sweets. My worst habit is eating a little something right before going to bed. I know....I know....BAD habit.

If you want any veggie recipes, let me know! I do my best to sneak veggies in to every meal without anyone noticing.

Isn't it funny how we rush our kids into the Dr. at the first sniffle, but when it comes to ourselves...... Hang in there! It looks like you are making some really good changes. Thanks for the recipes you are sharing, BTW!

That swimsuit is super cute! Do they have it in the store, too, so it could be tried on? I usually can't do a halter style cuz the "girls" are too large ITA with your wrap suggestion. Anything to cover up that rear region!

The Jack Sparrow (blue) costume is a size 7. (Evan wore it when he was 6) If you want to PM me your address, I will send it to you

Jill if you only knew...
two months before Ashton was born, Danny had a hip replacement. Than, Ashton was a month early, when he was born he came out wheezing. The hospital kept putting a tube into his lungs to suction him--but, nothing would come out. After coming home for the next two years, I was told he had reflux (he was breastfed and never ever spit up), asthma, malaysia of the voice box (it has a long name and I can't think of it much less type it --larygnixmalaysia)...I knew he did not have asthma or reflux and was not sure about the last thing but it did not sound right, the wheezing and croup sounds were coming from his chest not his throat. I finally brought him to Dayne's pediatrician from the New Orleans area. She sent him to see an ENT the same day. Noodle through the nose showed the voice box to be fine. Had to put him under Anesthesia and do the camera into the treachea. His treacha was pulsating call in the puliminoligist and cardioligist. We are than seeing a vascular surgeon all of this happened from Jan '09 to June '09 --did I mention our first trip back to WDW was May '09. He had a vascular ring wrapped around his treachea, along with a right double loop aoreta. He is fine now, still wheezes, his treachea is still soft where the ring was (not sure if that will ever go away--the condition is very rare and the docs were not sure).

In between all of this over these years Danny was seeing a dermatoligist for psorasis....
in the last two years Dayne has had his share of the doctor visits; with mono, staph, and scabies--that was the worst (got that from the chairs at the school he is attending).

So, you are right I can get everyone else to the doctor and have talked about my needing to go back. But, when you are not feeling sick it always gets put on the back burner. I had told Danny I was going to make an appt when Ashton went to school in Aug. After I lost some weight and tried to get myself in better shape. My chest had other ideas....

sorry about the ramble; I got started and just didn't stop...whew!
enough of this already...
now, back to some vacay planning!

I know about eating late...with me watching Chloe O after school until her mom gets here. We have not been eating until right at seven. (her mom gets here at six, but I can't get her out of my house until 6:30 or later . I even told her boyfriend that I love her but she does not know when to leave. you know 15 min would be great 10 min even better but longer than that. I have only been watching other people's children since 5:30 am go home, feed your 4 yr old, give her a bath, spend some time with her (that she craves) and put her to bed before eleven.

I had told Danny I wanted to start eating dinner before or around six and it is just not working that way.

My grandmother had to eat something small right before bed, her favoirte was a slice of bread with a 1/2tsp of apple jelly .

Thanks! Missy I have done this in the past and when I was pregnant for Ashton. It is just so hard when you are cooking for children --pickey children. I know I can do it! just need to keep it going.

Good luck with the doctor visit. I totally understand putting ourselves on the backburner. I am also going to finally make me a doctor appointment. I have been having headaches and I am suspecting they are migraines.

I'm just checking in really quick....

I am so excited that I had to share (not that you guys may care )
but, just since I have changed to not eating starches, since Wednesday, I lost 3.4#'s...hoping by the 7th day I at least hit 5#'s. This may give me incentive yet!

Taking Ashton to a photo shoot with live bunnies and chicks, his first, hoping he poses cute and sweet and not trying to bring in the monster claws.

Have a great day! everyone
