It's my blog and I'll brag if I want to, brag if I want to...

And that would be because...

I've lost 25 pounds!!

Woo Hoo!!

12 weeks of Weight Watchers, and I've done it..
I've signed up for another 10 weeks, so we'll see where it goes from here..

"But Mom, there's no more water in the bottle"...

Which was said after this child was asked if he/she fed and watered the dog.

Not to mention the fact that the child was standing right next to (or in?) the bathroom.

Not to mention the fact that the child was right around the corner from the kitchen.

Well, gosh, where do you think you might get the poor dog some water?
I usually think of this child as smart, but thought that was a pretty silly statement.

(give me a break...)

What crazy thing has YOUR child said lately?

Memories, Memories

♥Here are the directions:
♥ 1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together

It doesn't matter if you knew/know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
♥ 2. Next repost these instructions on your blog and see how many people have a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see their responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Anyone? Anyone?


First of all.. School has started, we are thankfully getting back into a routine.

Secondly, I went to my 10th Weight Watchers meeting last night and got a pleasant
surprise!! I'd lost 4.something pounds, for a total of 22 lbs! Hooray!
I was totally excited!
I had been hoping to reach 20 by the end of the session, so was rather pleased
to make it OVER that!
I initially started WW since my company will rebate me 1/2 of the
session price (ka-ching) if I lost 5 lbs over the session! I did it!

(please let me contain my excitement!)

Anyway.. I will continue to attend.. try to reach my first goal...

Then, I got in the mail today from the Animal Care and Control..
a bill for license fees for our cute beagle!
$16 annually it seems..

Where you live (if you are not in the same town as me) do you have dog license fees like that?
Blasted Beagles, Batman!!
I apparently have to pay penalty fees of $46 for not having him registered!
I don't know if the previous owners said anything to us or not,
it was two years ago, and I still was an emotional wreck from
my mom passing away.

So, it pays to have your pet licensed (blah, blah, blah..)
or else YOU'LL have to pay.
(and I want to know why they didn't send me a late notice

And They're Off!!!!

FINALLY!! They're Back to School!!
If a 7 year old is ready at 6:20 in the morning, do you think she is excited to go back
to school??

If a 6th grader fusses with her hair and changes clothes a couple of times,

do you think SHE is ready to go back to school??

Um yeah.. I think so!

We went to Meet the Teacher last week, and I think the girls will

have a good year. They both have a friend or two in their class, and

some don't have students in their class that I'm GLAD are not in their

class (is that bad for me to say??)

Anyway, I can relax at work today, not waiting for a phone call

saying someone is being mean to me.


Last one... off to 8th grade.. with his stylin' plaid shorts.
They are all the rage.

What happens when...

You give a 13 year old boy a camera and send him to the mountains??

(I have no idea how these are going to be laid out.. but I thought they were funny... I especially like the pic of the knee...)
