Mornings in Our House

Today Oldest Muffin decides she is not going to wear the outfit I picked out, jeans, red cable knit sweater and her red sparkly shoes. Why you ask? "Because jeans do not look good with those shoes" (sweetie they are red sparkly shoes they don't look good with anything.)

I bribed her with a necklace and perfume and that seems to get her dressed and in a better mood. I can't wait for her to be a teenager, I see me in her.

Hypothetically ...

If I were to get rid of my dog do you think anyone would take him?

3 year old Fawn Boxer looking for a good home. Goes by the name Rocco or Pain in the Ass. Loves eating out of the trash when the rents are not home. He really loves to drag the trash onto the living room rug and couch. Houdini is able to escape from the house when the children stand at the door or some new visits and does not understand the rules. Begs like he has not eaten in a week, this is usually accompanied by drooling and drool bubbles on the side of his jowls. He farts and it smells really bad, I think its because he eats fricken garbage. UGGG

Loves to go for car rides and hang my head out the window and drools all over everything. On the windshield, passenger side window's front and back, and the dashboard.
Note: dog will only sit in the front seat, no matter what ! My dog and MIL have actually tried to share the seat and if you know her, this was pretty funny.

We are not looking to get rid of him, but my god I almost gave him away.
He got pissed because I went to Target and didn't take him with us. (Yes my dog acts out when we go out in the car and don't take him)
I come home to Olivia's American Girl doll, with out underpants and half undressed on the floor, accompanied by my camera case and a ravaged box of tissues.
I think it might be time to put him back in the crate.

But we love him !!

PS Did I mention that he ate something in tin foil and then puked tin foil up on my living room rug...

Starting OVER

OK so Holiday Weekends are terrible for me because I eat like crap before, during, and after. So now I have to get back on the wagon.
Yesterday I ate pretty well,
Cheerios and milk (fat free) and 16oz of H2o

Chicken salad, grilled chicken, celery, dill and low-fat mayo on WW wheat bread. H2o
1 piece of cracker barrel cheese (LF), Carrots and hummus.

Salad (LF) dressing, 1 Small piece of french bread, and Pasta with sausage and peppers, low fat mozzarell, grated Parmesan. about 1 1/2 cups. H2o
Its not bad but I could have used chicken sausage, and Dream field Farms Pasta but I love Barilla

I did walk the dog about 1.5 miles (he is on a diet too).

Starting tomorrow I will put point values down... I am on weight watchers now so maybe this will keep me on track.

Wish me luck !

Diet Watch

So I went to Weight Watcher's on Friday and since the last time I went a few months ago. I only gained .6 lbs which isn't bad. So this week I vow to be down 2lbs and I will hit the gym at least 3 times this week.
I actually think I might hit the gym today. I know its Mother's Day but its one of the few days this week I can go.

Diet Watch

Wow its been awhile since I've posted anything. I though since I would be home laid off, I would have more to blog about. Nope this has not been the case. The only interesting thing is that I've gained about 8lbs and I've spent more on grocery's than I have in about 3 years. I am always at the grocery store, plus I Peapod about once every 2 weeks. So I'm starting something new...
(since i couldn't fit into any of my summer clothes this weekend, too small)

I am going on a diet and I am going to start exercising. I really just want to fit into last years stuff.
Starting Friday, I'm going back to Weight Watchers and back to the gym on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
I'll let you know how it goes...
