Tomorrow is back to our regular schedule..thank goodness! It has just been go, go, go and I'm done...lol! I'm tired and sore and I probably ate a little too much this weekend. Tomorrow I'm gonna start taking my weight loss pills again. I took the last 2 days off. I felt a little bad about that, but think I did pretty good eating wise and was very active this weekend. So I think it will be fine. Fingers crossed anyways! I'm weighing myself in the morning...lol!
Tomorrow I have a ton of cleaning to do, mostly laundry! I cannot stand laundry. If I was rich, I would definitely pay someone to do my laundry...lol! I wouldn't even think twice about it. Hopefully I can get all caught up tomorrow. It's probably going to take 5 loads to do it though...lol! Ugh!! Anyone want to come and do my laundry for me? No? ...No Takers? Darn! LOL!
This weekend has been busy, busy, busy! Yesterday and today we were gone all day long. Visiting with dh's family. We had a lot of fun though! Lots of food and outside games like shuffleboard and bocce ball. I even won bocce ball! Go me! LOL! I hope everyone had a great day with their family and had a great and safe holiday weekend.

Kaitlin had soccer practice the other day and while we were at the soccer fields, the horse arena next door was having a show. So after practice we all walked over there and watched it for a few minutes. We watched the 14-18 category and some of the adult category. It was pretty neat. Kaitlin and Cameron both love horses so I knew they would like. I told Kaitlin when she gets older she could take riding lessons if she wanted. She thought that was pretty neat. I'm sure that would lead to her wanting her own horse and equestrian apparel and everything else that goes along with owning your own horse but we will have to cross that bridge when we come to it...lol!
How do I know? I went to my first yard sale of the season today...lol! I love a good yard sale! I bought a cute little porcelain doll for Kaitlin, some Winnie the Pooh figurines for Cameron, a basket, a birdhouse and a couple other small things. It was fun and I look forward to many more over the summer. I also am going to have to have a garage sale this summer to get rid of some of my junk, to make room for new junk..lol!
Wow! I'm watching a movie on tv right now and this lady's lips are huge!!!!!!! Why do people do that to themselves..ugh! I'm not sure what this movie is even called and I've never seen the actors before. It's some crappy weekend movie that they show during the day when no one(except me) watches tv...lol! I would turn it, but we only get 5 channels....2 are PBS(boring!) and the other two have sports. So I'm stuck with big lip lady..ugh! Not to mention our tv is acting up....it's about ready to go I think.. It has a strip at the top of the tv that is like rolling over...it's really annoying! Guess I should start looking at some wholesale tvs to try and find a new one. I know hubby is gonna want a bigger one too...that's why I've been putting it off. Not that I don't want a bigger one...I just don't want to spend the money for a bigger one...those are expensive!! Call me cheap I don't care...lol! Ok back to big lip lady...commercial is over...lol!

I just realized that I didn't take the camera with us to take pictures at the Mother's day party. I'm bummed now. I could of taken a bunch of pictures since we just got a new sd flash memory card. Just think of how many pictures I could of taken of Grandma sleeping away while everyone else was partying hard...lol! I could of also taken video and got some great footage of her snoring...lol! I'm kicking myself in the butt now. Well there is always next year.. Oh and did I mention that in 10 days it's my birthday...woohoo!!!!!!
Today was mother's day and it was a great day. Earlier in the day my mom, me, and my daughter went up the the nursing home where my grandmother lives. They were having a big Mother's Day party. It was a good time. They of course had munchies and punch and of course Grandma slept right through it...lol! The rest of us had fun though..lol!
Not much in store for tomorrow...same stuff, different day. Kaitlin has school and after the hubby gets home he'll probably take them on a nice walk. Well dh and Kaitlin will walk, Cameron will ride in his Bob stroller. He has it so easy...lol!
I hope all the hard working mom's out there had a nice day today. You all deserve it!!! Being a mom is the hardest job out there and we deserve a day to relax and take a break...and get a back rub...lol!

My next week or so could turn out to be pretty funny. I start taking Alli tomorrow. You know the weight loss pill that if you eat too much fat you get "treatment effects." Not good treatment effects either, bad, very bad treatment effects..lol! Like spending a good part of the day in the bathroom...lol! I have heard a ton of stuff about it and decided it's what I need to get my butt in gear and lose this weight. I'm scared, but I think I'm gonna do really good. So if I have to endure some time on the toilet and the endless bathroom jokes from my lovely husband, I can do it!
I have heard lots of good stuff about it too, so that's what makes me want to give it a try. I have seen a ton of commercials for it. It seems like every other commercial is either for Alli or some acne treatment. Since I don't have acne, I figured it must be a sign that I should start taking the Alli...lol! So..I went and bought some.
According to the books you're supposed to start your low fat diet a few days ahead of time to get used to the diet. So that's what I've been doing the last few days. I have done a really good job sticking to the diet. I think I'm gonna do just fine when I start taking the pills tomorrow. That doesn't mean that I'm not scared though, cause I am. I am so scared I would be shaking in my boots if I had some on...lol! I am also very excited though and look forward to making myself over. If you want to keep track of my progress, you can always stop by my diet blog, Fat Girl Goes Fit, I think there is a link for it in my sidebar somewhere.
Wish me luck tomorrow..lol!
I have discovered a fun new game, and I can't quit playing it. It's called Farmtown and it's on Facebook. It is soooooo fun!!! If you love farms and animals you'll love it. You basically have your own little farm and grow crops to sell. You can go to the marketplace and hire people to harvest your crop or go there and look for work. There is a chat room, so you can even meet new people that also share your addiction. I have wasted a lot of the day on there..I just can't stop...I'm gonna need a support group when I decide to break this addiction..lol!
