B Y Me

David had on his BYU shirt and asks me if I want
to hear him count his letters and I wanted to.
He points at each letter and says “B – Y – ME!”

Dae of the Week

There is a cute little song put to the tune of the theme song for “The Adam’s Family” It goes
There’s Sunday and there’s Monday
There’s Tuesday and there’s Wednesday
There’s Thursday and there’s Friday
And then there’s Saturday
Days of the week (snap snap)
Days of the week (snap snap)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week (snap snap)
Our nickname for David is Dae.
Phillip learned this snappy little song in preschool and came home singing it
David began to howl, “I’m not weak‼!”
The song has had to be banned from the house. No amount of explanation or dissuasion has been effective.

Minus 54 Days

2nd day on the diet. Headache from caffeine withdrawal. Today the road ahead stretches much longer than the road behind.
Digging deep and discovering my dogged determination.
(at least some illiteration:))

Who loves you, baby?

Eden, Sage, Daizy. They are flower girls. I was leaving camp and went to get in the truck and received my last offering.

The Wedding Diet

Minus 55 Days until the wedding.
Perfect reason to diet, right?
So....I'm doing the 6 week body makeover diet.
The first day....Mon Aug 2, 2010
exercise: 2 mile walk.
I tried to keep my HR under 140 as exercise is
supposed to be 'light'.....woooooo!
7:00 am
2 egg whites
1/2 c oatmeal (w cinnamon & splenda)
9:30 am
1/2 c blueberries
2 oz talapia
12:00 pm
1/2 c brown rice
2 oz talapia
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chilis
2:30 pm
2 oz talapia
7:00 pm
repeated lunch

I got off schedule because I went to Vegas with Gary. We went straight to FHE when we got home, so didn't return for dinner until late. I skipped my evening snack.
A couple times during the day I felt that panic that says "You are not allowed....." mostly it wasn't too hard.

We had a pretty good freeze. The leaves fell and there was excitement in the air. They raked and raked to create this big pile, then the joy began.

Grandma is injured and sick, so David found a nice warm spot to make a bed!

Last night I was watching the football game after FHE and I was all alone in the TV room after having the fam over for dinner and a lesson. I could see this big black plastic cauldron sitting on top of the entertainment center. I kept trying not to think about it, but I knew it was full of trick or treats. I could picture the Snickers, Kit Kats, Reeses, Hersheys, M&Ms, Twix, all up there in that bowl. I knew it was just out of my reach. I kept trying to “not think about it”, but I finally capitulated. I couldn’t quite get it. I could touch it and coax it. I just needed a few more inches. I pulled a stool in from the kitchen and knelt on it to be a tiny bit taller, and I clutched the cabinet with one hand and tried to work the bowl with the other. I had a strange sensation of movement, then I realized the whole cabinet was tipping toward me, and together we went down. I was lying on the floor under this big heavy cabinet with that cauldron of candy perfectly fine sitting beside me. I screamed for Gary, and he came. I was embarrassed but helpless and hurting. He was able to lift the cabinet just enough for me to crab walk out from underneath it. I am battered, bruised and hurting, but I believe everything will heal. I didn’t eat any candy. I keep wondering what I was supposed to ‘learn’ from this. I still wonder. I feel embarrassed. I know this story will make me the joke of the day. I even photographed it for my blog—I’m trying to be a ‘good sport’, but inside I feel shame. Now everyone knows… and why would I think they didn’t? It is just so… “caught in the act”. What is this woman doing climbing a stool to raid the kids candy bowl? Why does she have a candy bowl? Isn’t she on a diet?.... She should be. I’m giving my thoughts to everyone. Something in me says just go get that candy and eat yourself sick. The pain will subside. What irrational thoughts.

Happy Halloween! Trick or treat!

Abby sat in Cinn's chair, and Cinn said, "Okay, Abby, I get the chair."
Abby was holding Mikey and said, "But I've got a baby."
Cinn said, "So do I"
Abby said, "Where?"

Gary, Lil, and I went to Patterson Pass (near Haggerty) and picked pine nuts. We had a wonderful day in the mountains and and got a few pine nuts also. I came home and slept for 10 hours and my whole body hurts, but other than that.....it was worth it!

$20 per pound of pinenuts is cheap!!! They should cost $100 per pound.

It was Lisa Wolfley's idea to try the exercise ball to bounce the baby
