Family Fun Afternoon

Yesterday when Matt got home he wanted to go to the park for some family fun time.

Boy did we have fun. Tyler loves going up and down the slide. I got some really cute pictures of Tyler at play. I also got a cute one of Matt and Tyler coming down the slide. I love watching the two of them play together. I see so much joy in Matt's eyes when they do thing together.

If the weather holds out we may try to head to the park again today. We have get Tyler tired during the day so he sleeps at night. So far the playground is working.

Here are a few pictures from yesterday.

Tyler just looking as cute as every.

This last picture is of my wall. Yes my son is removing my wall paper. So That means the living room moves higher on the rooms that need to be redo list. We are currently looking for a contractor for the bathrooms. We are going to update the kitchen ourselves and now the living room. I have no idea when we are going to start up stairs. I have to take wall paper down in one room and paint the other two.

Oh the joys of home ownership.

Oh what a day

Well I started off yesterday like it was a normal day. It was state holiday so I had to work. I get to work start working on projects and I get a call at 10 am from dad's aid. He had a seizure and was about to start another one. His aid had already called the paramedics and they were on their way. I closed up the office and headed to the hospital. When I got there he had a third seizure in the ambulance an the way there. There were 4 nurses, 3 doctors and the ambulance crew. He was still pretty out of it and twitching. I sat with him for 2 hours while they ran tests. Everything came back within normal range. So they admitted him.

I truly have no idea how my dad deals with this time and time again. I pray that the doctors can come up with a better treatment plan for him. I know this is hard on him. He had just got out of the hospital on September 26 and now he is back in.

The last year and half had been so hard on all of us. I know he wants to live because he keeps fighting. Please say a little pray for my dad.

The YMCA and Weight Watchers

So I am back on the weight loss ban wagon.

I joined Weight Watchers this week and I joined the Y last week.

I am going to weigh in on Wednesdays and I am hoping to hit the Y 3 days a week. I am so happy that I have made the decision to get healthy. I know this is not going to be easy. I have a lot to loss and it is going to be a long road. But I have a great support system. Matt is so supportive and helpful when it comes to the whole we need to find a new way to eat. Plus Tyler is going to eat better. I hope he grows up to be a good eater of a well balanced diet.

Here is a picture of Tyler at the Train Museum last week. He was all over the new kid play area with Thomas wooden rails and GeoTrax. It was a challenge to get him out of the room.

October is here

I can not believe it is the 4th of October already! Where does the time go?

So I have been busy planning my next few months of show for Silpada. This is a busy time a year for shows and orders being placed for the up coming holiday season. I am trying to get a few more shows booked so we don't have to worry about spending money on Christmas this year.

I am also hoping that we get out refinance done before December too. I would love to have our credit cards consolidated and money put away for retirement by the end of the year. I would also like to get our household on a budget. I would like to start 2008 with a fresh financial start!

I have also started a new business venture. I have a travel website. You can book flights, hotels, rental cars and all-inclusive vacations all on my site. So if you know anyone who wants to go on a vacation please direct them to my website.

I did not make it to round 2 for the scrapping challenge at But I have a great time with round 1! Here are my cards from my last challenge. They are not as great as I would have liked and they are all basically the same but I was not in the creative mood with my sinus/ear infection. But I am going to use them for my Silpada mailing.
