Breda Francis 6-18-94 to 03-02-09


We lost our precious Breda Francis on Monday morning. She was 14 years, 8 months, 1 week and 5 days old. She was my best friend for every day that I've had her since she was 6 weeks old. I miss her so much it hurts. The house will never be the same without her. She has been through more with me than anyone else in my life. She was the sweetest, smartest dog and can never be replaced. I love you and miss you so much Breda.

bad day

So, I just realized that we missed the PTA meeting tonight where the Kindergarten was performing. Since Taryn wasn't at school until yesterday, we didn't get the note about it until last night. This was the only time her class will do a program this year and I totally forgot until it was already over. So, I feel like a loser Mom.....again.

Ever have days when you just feel like you do a lot of things but they are all half way finished? Well, my day has turned into years. I'm really needing to change some things and am so overwhelmed that I don't know where to start. I just want to go to bed and not get up. :(

weigh in

I couldn't stand the curiousity so I weighed this morning just to see. According to that I am down 4.5 pounds. I don't know....I'm not feeling it. I still need to get through the party Saturday night before my official weigh in on Sunday. Wish me luck!

So, I started doing weight watchers online on Saturday. I am trying to lose 50 pounds. I am thinking that if I try really hard..I can do this in about 6-7 months. By the middle of summer I should be at my goal weight if I don't fall off the wagon AGAIN for the millionth time!!! My feeling fat and ugly have me motivated right now so I think I can do it! I'm sure trying. I have 9 points left for today so I'm gonna have a grilled chicken salad for dinner and maybe 2 cinnamon graham crackers for snack later tonight. That will probably be about 6 or 7 points so maybe I'll actually end the day with a couple left! :)

Mollie....our own little vampire dog!! We thought this was hilarious since Madeline and I are both into reading the Twilight series right now. She thinks she is as tough as a vampire too!!

Happy 2009!

My tattoo right after it was finished.

Hapy New Year!

I brought in 2009 with Sean and the girls. We (not Sean) wore tiara's and the girls drank sparkling cider out of fancy was tame but fun. I haven't really made any resolutions. There are several things I plan to do this year though.

1- lose 50 pounds!!!
2- get back in school.
3- take more pictures.
4- be better at staying in touch with friends.

There are more right on the tip of my tongue....but not sure what they are right now. I was supposed to go to Weight Watchers this morning but I woke up about the same time the meeting started. I have been sleeping really late the last few days. I am so tired I feel like I could sleep all day...ugh.

My plans for today are:
*We are all writing our thank you notes and getting those in the mail.
*Take at least 1/2 of our ornaments off of the tree and put away.
*clean all floors in the house.
*go to vet for flea medicine for dogs.
*take girls to see HSM3.
*plan menu for the coming week.

K, I think that's about all I can handle...oh yeah..I need to get a nap in there somewhere if possible..but that's doubtful!
