I have a few minutes here and thought I would update about how my day is going.
Well, I'm hungry.......but I'm doing well and have had nothing but water today. The rest of the family haven't noticed that I'm fasting and I'm not planning to tell them. It may come out at supper time. I think I will cook for them and then say "yall go ahead and eat--I need to jump in the shower" and leave it at that. I know it is silly to announce it to the cyber world and then keep it from your own family, but it is different. Somehow. You all aren't "real" *wink, wink* You all are little motivating cyber thingys that live in my computer. LOL
I have tried to stay BUSY and out of the house today.
I took the kids to eat lunch at the school. Daughter liked it. Son hated it. I was neutral. I thought the food looked good. LOL. They served chili dogs, corn, chips, cookies and milk. Son only drank the milk. Daughter ate her food.
A lady came over and introduced herself to me. She was the assistant principal. She was nice.
I have to tell this story: My son is big. He is 10 and weighs way too much for his age. Part of the problem is his thyroid, which he is on meds for and part of it is genetics and part of it is just eating unhealthy (my fault). Anyway, he is big. As we were leaving, some kids were walking out too and another big boy said "Hey, how much do you weigh? Do you weigh 200 pounds?" We just kept walking and ignored him. I'm pretty sure that he was talking to my son, but I convinced my son that the questions had been aimed at ME, not him. It brought back memories of my school days. My son would have similar problems that I had there. That's sad. We were only there for 20 mins or so and yet in that time I saw how ugly kids can be to each other. On the other hand, my daughter is skinny and pretty and confindent and wouldn't have any trouble in public school.
We went to the library but forgot the library card, so we couldn't check out any books. The library is doing some fun stuff for the summer--- movies and concerts and the like. Son signed up for a boy's book reading club for ages 10-17. He has a 30 chapter book he has to read, a big workbook to complete and THEN he goes sometime next month for the party. They will discuss the book, play games and eat pizza. The book is about a boy who doesn't fit in at school and is called names and how to deal with that kind of stuff. I thought that was so neat since we just dealt with that. I kind of know the two men who will be teaching this thing and they will do good.
ok....the plan is...........clean the house for 45 mins, mow the front yard (I mow the front, hubby mows the back), cook supper, take my shower, check messages again...and then go to bed.
Thank you for being here. :)
