My son is starting kindergarten in less than a month and…
He needs his shots.
He needs a physical.
He needs a dental exam.
He needs an eye exam.
AND we are going to be out of town 10 days this month.


The First Day of Kindergarten

Jonathan was up and dressed and ready for his first day of school before I’d had my first cup of caffeine. He had blueberry waffles, chocolate milk and a banana for his good breakfast before his big day. His only moment of anxiety was in the truck on the way to school when he thought mom had forgotten his afternoon snack. He walked mom right to his classroom and found his seat with no help. *sniff* After posing for one last picture, he gave mom five and took his seat. So much for needing mommy. I think I’ll go take a nap.

My baby boy

Monday, July 14th, 2008

My baby boy is growing up. *sigh* He is 5-1/2 now. How did that happen? I still remember holding that little red bundle of joy. He was so cute. He was 7 lbs 7 oz and 21 inches long.
I miss that baby. Now he is a demanding preschooler. He starts preschool tomorrow. I wish I had gotten him started earlier, but I think he’ll be all right. I tried to do what I could at home, but because I can’t homeschool him formally he needs to get used to other kids and obeying authority other than mama.

It is 12 days into the new year, how am I doing on my goals?

  • I have lost 10 lbs so far. I know it is probably water weight to begin with, but weight is weight in my eyes. So I only have 16 more lbs to go to reach my first weight loss goal.
  • The exercise isn’t happening as regularly as I like. I can’t seem to find a good time of day to exercise. So I’m going to work on that.
  • The water isn’t happening either. Grrr. I did make up a bunch of trays of ice to help me drink my water. I’m one of those people who must have her water cold. I lothe lukewarm water. Blech.
  • I haven’t been creative daily outside of working on the new design for my blog.
  • I haven’t been reading my books. I have been reading, but just fluff.
  • I haven’t been journaling outside of this blog. In fact I’m not sure where my journal is. Probably underneath a pile of clutter.
  • I have been taking my bubble baths minus the bubbles. I need to go to the store and get more bubbles.
  • I don’t think I’ll ever get my apartment decluttered outside of hiring a dumpster and throwing everything out!

So, I need to work on a time line for my day. I don’t want a strict schedule. I need something flexible, but I do think I spend too much time just letting my day happen. Even if I just plan the night before, what I need done the next day, I think that will be a big help.
I’ll keep you updated on how it is all going.

My children are bizarre

Instead of posting my new year’s resolutions earlier, I took the time to write down some stories that my children were telling (which is one of my resolutions—to spend “quality” time with the kids). My kids have wild imaginations. One day I was just trying to rest my eyes and it turned into a game we play. You close your eyes and tell me what you see. What ensued was hilarious (the notes are verbatim, but you have to imagine the inflection and stuff).


drum roll please

My New Year’s Goals and Resolutions:
Last year I decided to choose a verse of the year—A verse that I’d base all my goals on. The verse was “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”— 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
This year’s verse was my Grandma Wooten’s favorite verse”—“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”—Romans 8:28 (NIV)
I’m going to paste this verse all over my house and on my blog, so I can remember that God works for the good of those who love him. Now the good may not be what I expect, but God’s ways are not my ways and I’m starting to “get” this.
Next, my main goal of 2004 is to take care of me and get healthy. Okay, that may sound vague, but I have some specific ways in mind and I’ll list them here. My health involves my body, my mind and my spirit. Here is how I plan to nurture and cultivate them.
