I birthed two freaks....

There are times in a mother's life where she looks at her children and thinks....."I picked up the wrong kid at the hospital nursery. I had to have, there is no way this kid comes from me."
 or in my case--these two kids. 

They started booty dancing and singing "It's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes" as they took off their shirts. 
I don't even know who sings that song or anymore than that one line. 
We listen to country music.
We are normal people.
Look at Logan on the left...that blurryness is him dancing. 
Seriously, Metro Hospital you need to tighten up security.

Life is a little crazy this week and couple that with a power outage and a super busy night at work and I am behind a little on the blog.

Haven't cheated even once!! Amazing!!
Eating great, feeling great...what a concept.....
Have my Mom to Mom show at the Devos on Saturday so my mind is there and getting ready for it.

Going Vegan! Day 1

  My friend Veronica and I decided to go Vegan for a week to kick off our 911 worker 12-Week body challenge. 
We are gangsta's like that!
I have to say....Day one.....not terrible. 
Let's be clear: I'm not ever going to give up meat or meat by-products or pink slime in burger for that matter. This is just a weird thing Vern and I thought of doing while sitting around dispatch one night.
Here's what I ate today.
I picked up hours at work today so it was a quick toss of non- animal stuff in my bag. Love the steam-able veggies. These were on sale at Meijer for $.99 each. I stocked that we have a microwave :) I have to take my Synthroid and Calcium pill on an empty stomach with just water and wait 30 minutes before I eat. I just set the timer on the microwave and know that I can eat at the beep. I was rushing this morning so the water was fine until I got to work and then I ate my orange and broccoli. 
I felt I was always munching on my bag of veggies and had to pee every 30 minutes with all the water I was drinking. 

This was my dinner along with a half a plain bagel (I read the label like 15 times so I was sure!) with some strawberry jelly. 
This is zucchini boats (hollowed out) and grilled then I put grilled onions and a little pasta sauce. 
It. Was. Divine.
Not in the I will eat it because it's "either this or my hand" type of Divine, but really, truly delish!
I will make this again. 
Along side a strip steak a turkey burger.
I had a half a popsicle with the kids while they took their bath (the place they eat their popsicles). 
I will end day one not hungry and super optimistic about the week and the next 11 weeks ahead. 
I did FB a local bakery to see if they had anything Vegan and blessings abound!! they have Vegan Chocolate muffins....
Last 2 digits of my starting weight is 9.0 
Tune in tomorrow for day 2!

Whatever should we do?

I came home from work the other night and was getting ready for bed. In my bare feet, I walked into the bedroom and my foot stuck to something on the carpet. I know, I know, our carpet is a mess but this was new. This was fresh sticky.
Me: "ummmm....honey, what is this sticky stuff on the carpet?"
Him: where?
Me: (in my head) where? where? Helen Keller could find this...
(out loud) : right here honey, this big sticky line in our room?
Him: oh, ah, we had syrup for dinner on the waffles.
Me: of course! silly me. So sorry I interrupted "Duck Dynasty."
Him: It's "Storage Wars", I just finished "Duck Dynasty" those guys are awesome, when I...
Me: I know, you are going to grow your beard the day after you retire. So looking forward to that honey. Ummm, did you think to, Oh, I don't know, clean it up?
Him: I couldn't find anything that works.
Me: ......................................

Me: You couldn't find anything to clean up the syrup on the carpet that is
Him: ....they make duck calls and this one time, they flooded the dock to float ducks on.....

At least he didn't put newspaper over it and wait for me to get home, like when the dog pukes.
It can't be much longer, right, with all that Mt Dew he drinks.....right?!
