Seagull Steals Doritos

I love how fast he walks out after casually walking in and checking to see if anyone was looking. If you can't trust seagulls who CAN you trust!

Perfect Summer Outfit

This is my idea of the perfect summer outfit. It would make me really happy. Too bad it's all from Abercrombie and way too expensive. Anything I own from there has always been off the sale rack or the salvation army. That goes for my daughter's Abercrombie clothes as well. I can't justify paying $20 for a pair of rubber flip flops (unless they're Havainas, of course).

I Hate Medicine

OK. So my doctor started me on a new medication for insulin resistence and I'm hoping that all this weirdness I've been feeling over the past couple of months finally goes away. He diagnosed me with metabolic disorder and says that if we nip this in the bud now I won't become a diabetic. It's funny how once you've acquired one disorder it's all downhill from there if you don't really take care of yourself. Domino effect in full effect! I don't like taking medication but I have had no choice due to the fact that what I need to take replaces what my body refuses to do on it's own. Yes, it sucks. I hope this really works for me. I'm, actually, being more cautious with my intake of certain foods. I've never been a big eater but every once in a while I do enjoy my sweets. But, then, who doesn't. I look forward to feeling better! :)

Nice Kicks!

My daughter got these sneakers today and she was so excited. It's actually been a while since I've seen her so excited over anything. She wanted to wear them out of the store and then with her pajamas when she got home. It was really cute to see!

She Did It!

My daughter participated in the 2nd Grade Show. I did not see that one coming at all. She had been avoiding doing anything for a full month before today. I got calls and letters of concern regarding her participation and I just didn't know what to do anymore. So, finally, yesterday we told her that she didn't have to worry about the show and that all she had to do was show up. No pressure to sing--just stand there and if she felt like it maybe she could choose one song to lip sync. Well, go figure, she goes in there and sings all 8 songs. She looked so happy and into it. I was in shock. I went into this with, absolutely, no expectations. Afterward, parents and teachers all came up to her and congratulated her and hugged her and high-fived her! She told me that she felt like she was famous. I am so proud of her. Good for you, peanut!

Books I Love...

I love this story and Mr. Darcy...

Should I admit to this one...

This one is really useful...
I love reading. I've read so many books in my lifetime. I remember spending entire summers reading whole books in a day or two. I would lose myself in the stories and become one with the characters I loved. The story of Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights) was one of my favorites. I read Judy Blume books when I was younger and remember relating to the character of Margaret in "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret." Lately, I've been reading more than I used to. I take out so many books and start to read them all at once. This is not a good thing. I tend to mix the stories and the characters up in my head and confuse myself. At my age, and with the way my brain is working lately, the last thing I need is to confuse myself further. I wish I could express how important reading is to my kids. My son would rather read freaky "Captain Underpants" over and over again than give a good story a chance. I will get him to read better books. It's my new goal starting this summer.

Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Serum

I recently started using this product and it makes my skin feel wonderful. It seem to work as far as I can tell. The fragrance is soft and not overwhelming like some facial creams. I'm using this in conjunction with Retin-A since I've had the most impossible breakouts lately. I feel like a teenager. I have to figure out a way to balance these hormones soon or they are going to make me crazy--literally!
