My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

This week's words are:


Now get out there and exercise your BRAIN and your FUNNY BONE at the same time!!

Speaking of exercise!
It's Fitness Friday!

I sat in the waiting room of the dealership Friday morning and voila! I have HEADLIGHTS!! Yippee!!!

So, to test them out I went to the gym! My plan was to try and bike 7 miles. Since it'd been a MONTH from my last trip to the gym I thought I might need to take it easy and work back up to my usual 10 miles.

However, I ended up catching the last 1/2 of the Bengal vs Eagles pre-season football game! Anyone out there watch this game??
what a fun game.
interceptions....fumbles....incomplete passes....terrific tackles....penalties.
Plenty of opportunities to yell at the guys on the screen! (fortunately the gym was almost deserted...)
it was great to watch, but I'd hate to be on EITHER of these teams Monday when it's time to review the game films!
Bengals won 22 to 9.

And by the time I looked down at the bike....I'd gone 10.3 miles!!!

My goal for next week is 20 miles.

In other news I've been feeling punky a lot the last few days. Wednesday -Thursday I stayed up for 30+ hours and I really haven't slept longer than about 5 hours at a stretch since, so it might be plain old sleep deprivation. But whatever it is I'm ready for it to be gone!

I've worn the easytone shoes for a week now, and have yet to feel sore at all. I'm thinking that when you have a 9 1/2 WIDE foot, it takes more than those little ovals to put you off balance enough to change how you walk!! As my Grandpa would say, My feet are so big "all Hell couldn't trip me up"!

Had the ARD for Gator-boy. I'm very very excited about this school year! Gator will have the same teacher that Sonshine had last year! Sonshine's 1st grade teacher is also the Gifted & Talented teacher, who has a son with ADHD!! And, Sonshine will get to keep the same aid from last year!! It's going to be a GREAT year!!

I asked Miss Ladybug the kindergarten teacher WHY 6 boxes of crayons. She told me that she rotates them out at the beginning of every 6 weeks. Seems many of the kids really like the pointy crayons. She then will send the used crayons home or keep them till the end of the year. This does explain the big bag of 1/2 used crayons that I got last day of school!! It's nice to know the reason for the supply list!! :-)

Here's to a good week! And don't forget to play with those words!

What day is it. Yep...I have to check everyday. Glad you got good school teachers and aides for your kiddos!!

Always wondered why my kids need to have 36 pencils, although I did suspect that was what was happening.

Onto the words...

Zein - What happens while bowling(drunk of course), as in "I be zein the zone..."

Attelet - The first word in that commonly used phrase: "Attelet you know when I find out."

Sorry, it's the best I could do. Maybe I'll have some more later... :)

Sheesh, I hate it when I can't sleep!

Easytone shoes? Are those like New Balance's Rock and Tone? Because I just bought a pair of those this morning and are hoping they'll do me well.

Sounds like your teacher needs a few crayon sharpeneers rather than 70 boxes of crayons! lol
