The back yard...I went outside with the dogs this morning, and just soaked it in.
These two are crazy. They wrestle and fight and the house isn't big enough for them sometimes. Duke politely declines to play with them. He tolerates so much garbage from Sunny, then he does a little warning growl and snap once in a while, which Sunny totally respects. He actually hasn't had to do that in a long time, I guess, because Sunny mostly just licks his face and wags her tail and he doesn't care.
I walked four days in a row! And I am going to walk again in a few minutes, as our van has to go back up to the collision shop down the road for a few tweaks, and I am going to walk back home. I have backed off on sugar again, for the most part...I can make it through the whole day eating good nutritious food...then last night, I ate some chocolate. Not terrible much, but still. And I have a Cadbury Mint Crunch bar the girls brought me from South Africa. It's calling me, but I asked my girls last evening if they wanted any..."nah", they said. (It's beyond me how anyone could ever be so disinterested in chocolate, especially with mint crunch!). So I didn't crack into it, because then I would eat it all. So I will wait until I have some sharers.
Since Paul and a few of the older kids were gone last evening, I offered to bring home pizza for the other kids...who am I kidding, I relished the thought of not making dinner! So I picked up three Little Caesars pizzas, and an 8 pack of wings. I did not eat any pizza, but I did eat wings.
Right now I am sipping my pumpkin spice coffee...no sweetener, just pumpkin flavored coffee. I made the pot after Paul went to work and Evelyn went out the door to school...there was a cup left from the coffee they had, and shh, I poured it down the drain when the pumpkin stuff was done.
Home school kids waking up...Camille is all stuffy...she doesn't feel well..
