IPad!

I'm hooked. My sweet hubby bought me an iPad!!! It's like my early Christmas present. I love it! My kids love it too. They can play games, read interactive books on it, and explore the vast knowledge of the Internet. I put some teaching "Apps" on it-- math, alphabet, memory games, jigjaw puzzles, etc.

Of course, I put Sudoku on it for me. :-) It can also be my Kindle and read books. Can do emails anywhere in the house. Recipes for cooking. My iPhone does the same stuff but honestly, when it comes to screens, bigger is better. LOL. I also have Netflix so there's instant streaming of movies (no captions, but I watch foreign movies for their subtitles).

I like technology!

video "Face time" which is so cool!

Water baby

At the last minute, after dinner, we dunked in Budd Inlet! Sami threw
off ALL her clothes, including her diaper. Sheesh. It was 82 degrees
so the water was really refreshing. Jon and Abby went for a swim. Sami
just played nearby, that's why lots of pics of her and not enough of
Abby. We had a blast!

Homemade Oreos!

Those are the BEST! The original Oreos are crunchy and most of the
time, stale. Homemade is chewy and rich.

Hope you can read this okay

If you can't then I'll tweak it.

Writing

Wow. Abby is writing sentences without my knowledge! She's almost 5
and not in Kindergarten yet.
To translate this message "Dad is the best!" Cool, huh?

Virtual pet

This is very addicting! I downloaded a virtual pet app on our iPhones
and we couldn't stop checking it all day. Even Abby couldn't resist
checking it during dinner. She just has to be sure her pet is happy
and no poop.
I included a snapshot of mine. Her name is Jackie.

Collage!

I made this with Collage Lite - on my iPhone. I may do more of these!

Messy kids

This is what it looks like everyday after meals. My best investment is
my trusty little DUSTBUSTER!
But sadly, I think I may need a new one soon.

Dang!

Don't you hate those little annoying moments? I've had lots of them today.
  • Kids whining for breakfast before I have a chance to make my own coffee.
  • Sami didn't want her cereal, so she pushed the bowl and it tipped over. Guess who gotta clean it up?
  • I cleaned one of the toilets, bent over to clean the base, and my long hair dipped into toilet water. Ewwww.
  • Got a knot in my shoulder while putting Sami down for a nap.
  • While I was cleaning the bathrooms upstairs, Abby managed to turn into a tornado downstairs.
  • Had a sneezing fit.
  • Transferred videos from Jon's iPhone and found out it isn't compatible with the movie maker on the computer. Had to find a program that converts. Found it. Converted all videos. Found out all the movies are all horizonal (gotta tilt your head to watch movies), so I had to search for something that will rotate the movies clockwise. Augghh.
  • Now saving movies and it has been 2 hours, and 50.3% complete as I type. (Sighs)
  • While doing all that, the kids decided to be tornadoes again.
  • It's now 8:33 PM and I still haven't had time to relax.
  • 52.6% complete, and Sami just woke up crying. (I think she's too hot). Sighs... my day is a very long one.

Cute Princesses!

Easter Mosaic!


Posted by Picasa

Oops, I forgot I have this blog!

I've been BUSY BUSY BUSY at my other blog. The Lady Wolf. I'm trying to boost my popularity there, but doesn't seem to be working very well. Hmph... I notice I get more hits if I show scrapbooking pages, so I might do that more often than making new designs for others to grab.

As for my weight loss -- it stalled! It has been what? 3 weeks and I still hasn't lost enough to give a new check on my chart. Grrrrrrr. I've been trying to exercise more. I blame Easter and all those birthdays recently....

Ok, gotta go to bed. I'm super tired. I spent too much time online today.

Sami is exploding!

Errr. Excuse me... Her LANGUAGE is exploding right now. Sorry if you thought she will explode!

For the last few weeks, her vocabulary grew literally overnight. Her signing is becoming more refined and she can now ask for specific things instead of trying to gesture and throwing fits. She likes to mimic voices and learn new signs as she talks.

She's also SO into Hello Kitty stuff. The other day, we were walking through Kohl's and she saw Hello Kitty dining set (plate, cup, fork, spoon, etc.) and she grabbed it and wouldn't let it go. I had to bribe her to leave (cookie? come here, you want cookie? come here...). I know, I'm a bad mommy... But that's the only way to get her to leave the store quietly.

Today, we went to a dollar store (they got money from grandma). And Sami saw a chair, and absolutely won't let it go. It was only a dollar, and may only last 2 hours, but hey. It was her dollar.

After bringing the chair home, I took a closer look at it. AH-HA... that's why!!!! The characters printed on the chair reminds me of Hello Kitty again.  Don't ya think?

distracted and new information.

Sorry, I wasn't blogging often enough here. I was busy on my OTHER blog- The Lady Wolf. I am trying to make it much, much more interesting to attract followers and see how far it can get off the ground.

As for my weight loss-- I think it stalled!!! Aughh...I don't eat that much junk anymore! Maybe it's muscles... (winks)

My friend told me that her weight was gaining FAST for no reason, so she had her thyroid tested, and it came back normal. So she had her blood tested, and showed that she's realllllly low in vitamin D, and doctor told her that vitamin D is VERY important role in weight stablizer/ weight loss. That's why they are pushing the "Drink Milk, Lose Weight" ads-- calicum also needs to be there for vitamin D to work. You can't just take vitamin D and no calicum. Also, vitamin D/calicum helps strengthen your bones. In a magazine, said most women aren't getting enough vitamin D AND calicum.

Interesting, isn't it? I might buy some vitamin D capsules and Tums, and see how it goes for a week.

Love,
The Fat Me minus 5 lb.

A little fun tidbit!

A Little Known Fact:

The first testicular guard cup was used in hockey in 1874.

The first helmet was used in 1974.

It took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Trigger

Poor Trigger.
Last Friday, I cleaned the whole house. Put the kids down for a nap. After a good hard work, I plopped down on the couch to rest. And right in front of me, Trigger peed on the carpet!

But.... her pee was red. Wait.. Shouldn't pee be yellow? I quickly took her outside and she peed some more and it was port red. Hmm so, I texted my husband, he came home and took Trigger to the vet immediately.

She has UTI. Ugh... Poor thing. And also the vet found a hard lump on top of her head (nope, its not her brain!), so today, she went BACK to the vet to get a biopsy. She now have stitches on top of her head.

Right now, she's loopy and out of it. Half asleep all evening.

As for my weight loss -- It's going slower. I lost 4 pounds... I am losing, which is in a good direction! I don't want to lose too much too early. 2 pounds per week is perfect for me. So, that means 8 pounds per month, that's a lot, I think. If I continue this, I will reach my goal target in about October. No, I'm not gonna tell you how much I weigh!

I might post before/after photos.

And also, we just found a new favorite show on TV, on the History Channel.
It's called "Pawn Stars" and wow, its soooooooooo interesting. You oughta watch it sometime. It's almost like Antique Roadshow but its a reality show when people come in their pawn shop and see if their stuff is really worth anything. Some fake, and the guy on there reminds me a lot like ummm whats his name? Shoot... It's on the tip of my tongue! He's from Die Hard, Sixth Sense, etc... Bald. BRUCE WILLIS!!! A little bit...

Ok, I oughta go to bed.

Love,
The Fat Me

Day....10? 11?

I lost track of how many days I've been "dieting". Felt like 8 weeks already. Ha.

I did pretty good today. Did some workout and serious house cleaning. Ate healthy. And in small amounts.

My laptop broke so I'm now in grieving. Because for the last 6 weeks, I've been distracting myself by throwing in playing and learning some new computer program and experimenting with my Cricut machine. Now I can't do that. What can I do? When I am not busy, I get bored too easily and eat. I really do eat when I'm bored. My hands need to be busy!!!

Love,
The Fat Me

Bleech

Really really not a good weekend. Bleech.

Woke up Saturday morning sick as a dog. I tol Jon he has to watch the girls and I crawled back to bed and slept more than half the day away. Woke up at around 3:00 PM and was starving. Needless to say, I couldn't eat as healthy as I wanted to.

And now today's Sunday. My parents came! Jon's parents came! We had a small Superbowl party with lots of junk food. (sighs)

Tomorrow WILL be better. Just two lousy days. And also, tomorrow will be my 1 week mark. I will post how much I lost (or gained). Stay tuned.

Love
The Fat Me

Day three/four;
Did I forget to blog yesterday? I was busy being sick. Yup- a full blown cold. I didn't do squat. I felt horrible. I didn't eat much. By night time, I was STARVING! I had had had to eat something. I ended up having cereal. Hey, better than oooh 3 candy bars.

I'm feeling better today. I cleaned house (good workout!) and still didn't eat much. I'm still HUNGRY.

(sighs) but I did distract myself by doing Abby's Valentine Day "cards." She just went back to preschool, and the Valentine Day party is next Thursday. I think she has 10 classmates.

"Cards" is paper flowers with a lollipop in the center. Let's see if I can take a quick snapshot....



Aren't they cute?!? The cricut sure saved me lots of time. I wouldn't want to cut or punch out 60 hearts. It's hard to see but the inner heart has scalloped edges.

Oh, I want to share a goofy pic of Abby and my fake lighted up candles. (no persons or pets were harmed in this picture)



Off to bed I go.
Love
The Fat Me
