Today was Grandparents' Day at my son's school :) His paternal grandmother, Cheryl/"Mimi" went; thankfully! She even sent me a pic text with her and Wyatt :) AND!!! AND!!! AND!!! asked if the kids could go spend the weekend with her the first weekend of October!!!
Maybe this is a start to mending relationships (Jeremy & his mom)??? I hope so! The kids need their grandparents (even if there's friction between the parents)! And they miss that; that relationship, ya know? It's been 3½ yrs since Nathan (Jeremy's dad) passed away... and things had been so strained between Jeremy & his mom...

Well, Monday, after my walk, my head/jaw just started hurting constantly! I made an appointment and was able to get in today! Yay! An end in sight from the pain!

I was talking to my mom the other day and she told me it took her 3 mths to go from a size 14 to a size 8 when she was walking from the house (the 2-storey jouse we grew up in) to my grandma's house to visit the Cherie. And then she said it wasn't daily! She also had to walk over an overpass, so, that inceeased the effort... but, it's still inspiration! Even if it takes me twice as long to lose about the same amount, that would still be great! :-D
This picture is just a small sample of the poison plants I have to walk next to daily! I'm quite sure this represents all 3 types: Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, and Poison Sumac! You may not be able to see all 3 I in this picture; but, I'm quite sure they're all there... hiding... I really think that it wasn't Poison Ivy that I had a reaction to last year... I think it was either of the other two plants.
Tons of Poison Ivy are growing high aling the road :-/ There's only grass as the shoulder of the road... so, I step off into the grass if a car approaches... I hope I don't get into contact with any of the poison plants when I do that! Argh! That would suck so much! I'd have to stop walking for 2 wks! It's bad enough I can't do my running/jogging until my shins heal completely...

I haven't called mom about staying with the kids yet. I'm sure it won't be a problem though.
Saturday is Korah's birthday party; should be a good time for us adults too :)

I'm super psyched! The Cure, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and Paramore will be there! If only 311 would be there, it would be perfect! :D hehe
Now, the problem: The dates are Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. This means either my kids will miss school on Friday and we bring them to Raceland/Montegut to stay with family. But, Fridays are usually test days! So, what I was thinking was that my mom could come up here a day or so before Friday. And being I don't think she'd handle being here, alone, with my 3 kids... I asked Cherie if she could come up for the weekend. So far, she'll come :)
It just sucks that Jeremy & I will miss Wyatt's Flea/Fly game :(( Maybe Nov. 3rd isn't a date set in stone... I can only hope!!!

Every day that I walk, I pass over the train tracks close to our house. We live one house away from the tracks; and after living here for 12 yrs, the trains are barely bothersome... only if they're going really fast or have a heavy load or stay on their horn, do we notice them... our house, which is on the ground, shakes sometimes! Hahaha. And of course, if I'm on the phone outside (bc I usually go outside if I'm talking on the phone), a train will pass and lay on that horn!!! Every single time! Haha

They are a week old today :-) Our Pitbulls' (Veya and Titan) babies:-)
They're so cute! Eyes and ears are still closed; should be open by next Thursday
It's so hot though! They pant sometimes:-(
We've already had people asking about them! Like about 5 are interested! Woohoo!
We'll probably get Veya fixed after this...
I reached my 10,000 steps goal today! Woohoo! I'm thinking that the mileage and the amount of steps shown on this pic (from an awesome app) isn't exact... like, I believe I walked/jogged 3 miles, not 7 miles... but, hey! Looks great on here! Hahaha. But really, I'm proud to have gone as far as I have! By myself! The past 2 days, my neighbor's ankle has been hurting, so, she hasn't gone with me.
At the end of the week, I'll post a screen shot of what I've done this week :-D
I need this exercise to be a daily thing; a habit. Something that calls out to me every morning. I'm looking forward to see what progress I've made in a month! I really hope this works out for me!
As of now, my shins ache while I'm walking/jogging. I ignore that and hope it goes away :-) Jeremy said my body is just getting used to it and it won't ache for long.
I put a pic of me still drenched in sweat... hahaha

Just bought new shoes to prove my determination to continue the walk/run exercising with my neighbor!
Hopefully, the weight will start melting away!
I also bought some Malice in Wonderland. It's to help with weight loss. It's got some natural stuff in it. Hope they both work for me!!!
