Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Another Tornado...and Thank You Followers

Hello folks!

I've been a bad blogger, but you all keep following me anyway. Thank you! It's been almost a week since I have been able to get to the library and check my email and blog. When I left I was at 99 followers and today I noticed that I'm over 100. Thank you for following.

Now I just need to write something worth reading. Ha!

Well, here's the deal. I leave for a family reunion tomorrow and won't be back until next Monday. But I want to "re-start" my diet again. So, there's that.

Also, remember when I went running during a tornado/hail storm about five weeks ago? Well, another tornado literally touched down in my neighborhood Sunday afternoon, at 4:15 p.m.

Literally TWO WHOLE BLOCKS from where I live. Roofs were taken off buildings. Trees fell onto houses! Steel siding from industrial storage buildings flew off and wrapped around poles and trees. Unbelievable stuff literally two blocks from us and we didn't even know it happened until I saw all these cars driving by our house like there was some music concert down the street because they couldn't get through the main streets. Then because there was no power, people were out walking around, with the sun shining no less, all this damage taking pictures. So, I took a few walks, and took a bunch of pictures to share with you. Something I'd like to do when I come back.

I bet you if you really, really wanted to see pictures you could google Tornado in La Crosse WI and you'd find something.

Otherwise, I need to finish getting everybody ready for a trip for tomorrow.

But, thanks again everyone and I hope you all enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

Happy Thursday!!! 6 Month Pictures of Morning Glory

It's the moment you've all been waiting for.... I figured it out...

How to upload pictures at the library without having the internet at home...

And, of course, we have to start this session with his feet.

Here he is hanging out in some one's lap.


A slightly out of focus smiley picture.

Looking down...happy.

Today he fell asleep in the "johnny jumper".

Also, if you look close you can see the scratch on his cheek.

I noticed that today it is maybe it will fade away.
Also, Darling Rose took this photo...

And this last photo...

Morning Glory still gets plenty of sleep time during the day.

Yesterday he weighed about 15 1/2 pounds first thing in the morning.

I started feeding him organic, iron fortified brown rice cereal three times a day about two weeks ago. He's doing well on that. I wish he'd gain more weight, but all of our kids tend to be "lightweights".

So, I hope that gives you all some perspective. And, the good news is that I know how to transport pictures, so, maybe I can get picture in more often.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Hello everyone!

Yes, I miss you all very much. I'm sorry Greg hurt his leg, SunshineMeg. I don't know what I would do if that happened to me. He has such good spirit. I hope he will still be able to do something that he likes. A surprise birthday party sounds like just the ticket.

And little Morning Glory will officially be six months old tomorrow on the 4th. Nov. 4th to May 4th. I really should try to get some pictures posted. I'm a little annoyed about something though. You see one of our children, Iris Anna, (she's six) was trying to buckle him in the swing and he slid forward and scraped his little cheek. It was barely anything..he didn't even cry. But there is a scrape nonetheless. And I'm feeling very anxious that it might scar. To me he is just the most beautiful thing ever. I love him so much. It happened about five days I still need to give it more time to heal and disappear? I hope so.

I have also just noticed that I have 98 followers. Thank you all you new followers for signing up despite my lack of posting.

I also wanted to shout out a congratulations to my brother and and his wife for finishing that half marathon that I had planned on doing but then didn't. My brother's best half time before this was 1 hour 57 minutes. He had wanted to beat my time of 1 hour and 53 minutes. Actually he really, really wanted to get 1 hour and 45 minutes. Well, guess what he got?

1 hour and 44 minutes!!! Yeah!! for him !!!

My sister-in-law, the one that ran races while pregnant with her fourth baby last year, completed the half marathon in 2 hours and 3 minutes. Now I haven't gotten the full scoop from her, but that is an awesome time for just having a baby less than a year ago. She also works full time as a teacher at a school and takes care of all the kids.

So, now I just need to get my bee-hind in gear and train for the half marathon in late September.

Well, the sun finally came out today! It's been cold here lately, but hopefully the sun will stay out for a few days this week.

I will take some photos of Morning Glory tomorrow and see if I can do something with them. I promise!

Talk later!
