I think I'm contagious

It looks like I'm not the only one that has "Imtoobusydoingotherstuffanddontfeellikeblogging-itis". But I'll get everyone caught up whether you like it or not. HA!

It's been an eventful month-ish.

Emily had a fight with the sidewalk...the sidewalk won.
A few days later

A week later she stepped on a bee and got an infection that caused her foot to double in size....then did it again 2 weeks later.

She lost her first tooth!!! Yay! something exciting.

I realized that my oldest daughter is growing up and noticing boys and I'm not ready.

The kids and I spent the day at the beach... It was fun but I'm glad I won't have to be guilted into going again for at least another year. Don't get me wrong, I like beaches...when they are warm...not when you put your foot in the water and you immediately get pissed because it's so freakin cold you think you'll never be warm again.

I don't know if my kids are just mutant or just take after Larry but they had no problem with freakin cold water and actually all went in.

Our little Bruiser passed away :( Still super sad. Please don't ask how, I can't even go there but Sara blogged it, if your curious.
The kids and I are now spending our free time looking on for our next dog. So many choices... we found one that we agreed on but was adopted the day I emailed about him. So...still looking.

Yesterday was the end of my 12 weeks and my stats are: I'm down 10 lbs. and 20.5 inches. Well technically down 5 lbs but I'm down 10 since my initial 5 lb weight gain. So yay! I'm consistently losing every week and that makes me happy. I'm walking 5 miles a day, I haven't lifted weights in like a month but once school starts, I'll have way more time and less interruptions. I feel great, I'm sleeping so good and I'm actually enjoying getting up early. OOOOH and I did not quit drinking Diet Pepsi...that was just plain insane thinking and I'm not really into being crazy sooo still drinking and loving my DP.

Soooooooo that's about it. See you next month, when school starts.

Emily said...

Oh my gosh! Poor Emily. That first picture is one of the saddest pictures I've ever seen! I'm glad she's healing up ok.

You are super mom for taking your kids to the cold OR beach. The memories are priceless, I'm sure.

Keep the updates coming. I've missed your posts!

Emily said...

Oh, and I'm so sorry to hear about your poor dog. SO sorry.

Great update. I can't believe how pathetic that scraped up face is. So sad. And sorry about your dog too!

Congrats on your weight loss and success. You are walking a lot!!! Wow.

I'm sending a group hug for the injured face, missing tooth, and dead pet. Maybe your next dog should be large enough not to be swallowed by a larger dog... just a suggestion.
I'm glad you came to your senses, and went back to DC. Congrat's on the weight loss, and the INCHES!! Awesome.

Congratulations on your weight loss!!
Sorry about your puppy. That is terrible! I hope you find a new one soon.

Poor Emily. I'm so relieved to learn she healed without scarring. Congrats on that weight loss! I can attest to how difficult it is to get even one pound off. Way to go!

I literally wanted to cry when I saw that scraped face and swollen foot.

All dogs go to heaven.

Contagious eh? I've Bern wondering what that rash was.

Poor Emily! And sorry about your dog. That's so sad. I read the shocking details on Warriorcats's blog. She's really on top of things. Congrats on your progress!
