Just a quickie....

One minute I've got nothing but time; the next not so much. Last week Leesia over at "Here we go...hold on tight" (http://herewegoholdontight.blogspot.com/) awarded me the Sunshine Award (Thank you Leesia).

I apologize for my tardiness...I've just been really busy. And to be honest, like Leesia, I had rec'd an award the day before and didn't know how to respond. Silly I know; me at a loss for words (gasp)!!! BUT I do thank you Leesia and appreciate the time and kind words you have given me and continue to give me.

I'm going to cheat (tsk tsk I know) and tag everyone of my followers. I think you are all great (I mean hey, you do read my blog so you must be great!!). I really wish I could get to know you all a little better. Maybe when time loosens up (and I get a quicker computer that doesn't continue to freeze), after I've read some blogs I'll make an award of my own with really cool questionnaire. Sadly I think I may have missed the boat...I believe there is a blog tour going on. sigh.

This week has gotten off to a GREAT start. At the family gathering yesterday I made very wise and healthy food choices AND took smaller portions. However, my water intake yesterday may have slipped. I'd know for sure if I'd WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN! Today, I did so well that I scared myself. Of course as I sit here and type this I'm dreaming of a Klondike Reece's' bar. :O) I had a yogurt cup for bf, one cup of coffee, 1 1/2 pieces of turkey veggie meatloaf, an orange, an apple, tons of water (about 110 ounces), a large homemade salad....and probably the Klondike bar! My snacking the last week or so has been minimal and when I have snacked it's been fruit.

Before I close I really need someone's help. A close family member who will remain nameless (Fredbird) has been getting me up as early as 5 am. To EAT of all things.

He's lucky he's cute but I swear if he keeps it up I will not be responsible for my actions. I walk him between 2 and 3 miles a day, him and daddy play quite frequently. He gets his yogurt or italian ice about 8 most nights. I don't know what else to do. I know that during "normal" hours the air quality has been bad so maybe he is waking up so early because at that time the air is pretty good. I've tried ignoring him but he's very persuasive. Hubby felt sorry for me this morning and got up to feed him.


  1. OH, that Freddie! He is so cute.

    Here is the problem: his name. Fredbird; he thinks he's a bird and he hears his perceived relatives out there singing at 4:30 AM. He's knows they're having breakfast.

    It also gets light so early this time of the year. My beagles are doing the same thing. They want me to get UP!! GET UP so we can do our thing outside and have our breakfast! GET UP!!

    I wish I would have never started with a morning feeding for them, because they are frantic for it. Don't even think about sleeping late. Not going to happen.

    Ear plugs and a sleep mask? For us or the dogs?

    Good job on doing so well, by the way!

  2. Thank you for sharing my link. Your dog is adorable...
