The weather: Right now it's sunny & 43, high of 47. It snowed yesterday! WTH??
Plans for this week: Plan out some fun activities for the summer.
I am wearing: Jeans (duh), long-sleeved tee, K Swiss sneakers
I am feeling: A little tired, and still trying to be completely rid of this 6-week cold that keeps hanging on!
I am hearing: The radio. Current song playing: Snow Patrol "Chasing Cars"
I am thankful for: e-mealz.com
I am wondering why: I can't lose weight. Oh, wait. Yes I do. It's called Chocolate.
I am contemplating: When I am going to get my workout with Jillian in tonight.
MJ: He has officially had one week of zero potty accidents!! He has actually had only 1 accident in 2 weeks! Hopefully I have bought my last package of Pull Ups! As for his behavior, we still have good days and bad days with his little attitude, and his lack of listening skills. It can be quite stressful on all of us. We are trying new things everyday, so I am hoping something clicks here soon.
Mike: He is thrilled that the season is back in swing! He is hoping for his best year yet, depsite the horrible economy.
Me: Not much going on. I am preparing for a garage sale in May. I can't wait! I think traffic at garage sales are going to be heavier this year, as more people are trying to save money and buy used!!
For dinner tonight: Beef roast that has been in the crock pot all day. With potatoes and carrots. Yum!
A photo: Not really a photo. But this is in honor of Michigan State. The only Big 10 team to make it to the Final Four! Go Spartans!!
Today, we went to a circus. Well, I use the term "circus" very loosely. It was inside the arena at the County Fairgrounds. There were lions, tigers, elephants, a camel, 2 horses, some pony's, and some dogs. They also had jugglers, clowns, a trapeze girl, and a couple of guys on a trampoline. All the ingredients for a circus, but it just seemed to fall short for me. We had gone to a circus in neighboring town a couple of years ago, and it blew this one out of the water. It also was very expensive for what it offered, and they tried to peddle their wares to you non-stop. Popcorn, peanuts, coloring books, lighted toys, stuffed animals, food, etc. Other than the admission cost, we spent $12 on the elephant ride, and $5 on a blow-up Spiderman. I refused to give those people any more of our money than that!
Despite how Mike and I felt about it, Michael loved it! He was very tired, since we were there during nap time, and he asked to go home a couple of times. But when we would get ready to go, something would catch his eye, and we would stay. Mike and I were more than willing to leave if he wanted to!!
The highlight was definitely the elephant ride! Like I said, we forked out $12 to take one short lap around the ring, but Michael was in awe!! He was able to reach down and touch its ear, and he thought that was so cool! Mike tried getting some good pics, but the camera was having trouble focusing in there, so he only got a couple.
I am sure MJ will be telling his friends all about it at school tomorrow!!
The weather: Mostly cloudy, high around 50. (It is currently 51!)
Plans for this week: Try to get the boy outside to play!
I am wearing: Jeans (duh), button front brown-stripped blouse, sketchers
I am feeling: blah. Have a headache, a back ache, and a cough that won't go away!!
I am hearing: The radio. Current song playing: John Mayer "Gravity"
I am thankful for: My family
I am wondering why: I can't come up with something exciting to post in my blog.
I am contemplating: Whether to eat leftovers for lunch, or go to Subway.
MJ: His behavior is so much better this week. I think the issues he had at school last week were mainly from his adjusting to a new classroom and a new teacher. Everyday he asks to go outside and ride his bike after school. Daddy usually rides with him, but I have opted to walk beside them, because they go toooooo slow!
For dinner tonight: Not sure. Mike went to the grocery store today, while I am here at work, so who knows what he bought! If he hadn't gone, it would have been sloppy joes for us tonight! LOL!
A photo: My best friend today. Yes, I know how unhealthy it is, but I need caffeine! Please no lectures! LOL!
