I want a puppy. I have wanted a puppy since we moved here. I want a small dog like in the picture. This is a Shih-Poo. How cute is he?? Or a Shih Tzu would be good too.. This is what I am asking Santa for. So any Santas out there???

Ok.. now that I have that out of my system. We took Amy to the doctor today. $125.00 later in medication... but at least she will get better. We can claim that with George's drug plan from work. The doctor suggested we get a ventolin machine for our house so when she gets into an attack we wont have to head to the emergency room. The machine its self is covered but we would have to pay for the medicine. Which again we could claim. We will most likely get it in the new year. She is on so many meds right now, we will let them do their job for now. She is to stay home from school for the rest of the week too.

Thats it for now.. till next time..

I put the Christmas Tree up yesterday and the kids decorated it. Amy has a doctors appointment tomorrow because her asthma is acting up again. She needs puffers. Jarret had quite the barky cough this morning.. so maybe he will be coming with us to the doctor tomorrow.

I have a headache because I had a few sips of wine last night. Man that sucks. It was good wine too. I haven't done any exercises this week. Bad me. Yesterday I cleaned and had a workout that way. Today my head is pounding. Maybe I will do some pilates later, I don't think doing aerobics with a headache will make me feel any better. I have to get back on the workout wagon.

Well.. That's it.. I am off to take more pills and drink more water.

First thing... LOVE the new look!! Of course all thanks to George. I love having my own personal IT/Web designer. I told him what I wanted a few days ago.. And here it is. Again George.. YOU ROCK!!

Today is my official weigh in.. I am down another 1/2 pound!! I was hoping it would be more.. But I'm just thankful I didn't gain. I haven't been as "strict" as I should be.. So now its time to pull up my socks and really work on losing more this week. I need to drink more water again.. I kinda slowed down. I am still exercising every day. I walked 4km yesterday. I am quite proud of that.

I tried a recipe yesterday for Oatmeal Macaroons. And they really didn't turn out all that great.. lol. I took some pictures and sent them to my mom, Char and Chris. I will not be sharing because its pretty bad. I was laughing so hard over the entire debacle, I had tears running down my face. I called George at work and the poor guy couldn't understand a word I was saying. At least I can laugh about it. Right? I figured out that I need a new cookie sheet and a new measuring cup.

Jarret got his pictures back yesterday. What a handsome boy I have. Really I'm not saying that because I am his mother.. He really is a good looking kid!! Lol. George is taking the picture to work to scan so I can post it.

Amy is still peeing her pants. She hasn't done it at school again.. But she does it at home. Does it mean anything that her pee smells really bad?? Sorry to be so gross but it does. I will call the doctor today.

Well that is it. Everyone have a great day!!

Help part 2

I need advice. We are having some problems with Amy and her bladder contol. If you dont remember my first plee for help read here. It all started after school one night last week. I was trying to get her out of her school uniform for supper. She said she had to pee and when she turned around she peed her pants. She was watching tv when this happened. She didn't say a word to me I had to ask her about it. Ok.. So I chalked it up to her being pre occupied. I wasn't pleased but let that one go. A few days later I picked her up from school. All is good, I waved to the teacher she ran up to me hugged me and we were on our way home. She ran ahead of me when I noticed her pants were all wet between the legs. I asked her about it. And she responded by "dont worry mom, no one saw" Needless to say I was not impressed and she knew it. We had a talk once I cooled down and I told her that when she is awake there is no reason she shouldn't be going on the potty. (I guess I should mention that she still wets her bed at night). Her wetting her bed at night I can accept because I know some kids are bed wetters.. Ok fine. Not when they are wide awake in the middle of the day. She peed her pants twice this weekend in the middle of the day. I asked her if it hurts to pee.. She said no. I asked her if she feels it when she pees she said no.

I was getting upset but then thought maybe its a medical reason. I am going to call the doctor today and get her an appointment. I need to know if its her being lazy or if she really cant help it. I dont know which one of the two I want it to be. I dont want something wrong with her.. But I dont want her to be acting out or anything either. So frustrating... Any advice please I am open to hearing anything...

Ok.. So yesterday we went to the grocery store and Jarret told me that he doesn't know how people get "charged up". I want too sure what he was getting at.. So I told him our heart keeps us alive. He responded a bit frustrated and said he knows that but he doesn't know how people get... How people.... (you can tell at this point he was getting VERY frustrated) so finally he said " I just dont know how babies get into moms stomachs!!" Uhh.... I told him we would talk about it at home since its a private conversation and we shouldn't have it in the middle of Fortino's grocery store. So.. Once at home I told George what Jarret asked me. George smiled and said ..

"I cant wait to hear this Jenn"

So I started out not very well. I was a bit red in the face... I was stumbling over my words.. kinda laughing. I think I went a bit too far with my explanation because at one point George whipped his head around and gave me a weird look.. oops.

When I was done screwing my kid up.. George and I told Jarret that what was just discussed does not get talked about with his friends at school. If he has any questions about anything he can come to me or his dad. He seemed to be ok with that. Phew.. Didn't see this conversation coming for a few more years.

Ok.. This was too long .. My apologies to That's it for today..

Happy Birthday Mike!!

How old are you again??? Oh yah, older then me!! Tee hee!!

Just a little update for those I haven't told (which is probably no one)!! My weight loss program is working out pretty well for me so far. In the two weeks I have been working on living healthier I have lost 8 pounds. I have cut out my junk food and have been exercising every day. I am obsessed with counting calories and counting carbs. I concentrate more on the calories right now but once I have that down I will look after everything else. I am feeling so much better about myself and no headaches so far!! For those of you that don't know.. I get really bad migraines and for a while it was almost at least one every week if not more. So I am very happy about this change in my life. All is good here!!

New Header

I didn't forget to mention my new header on my previous post.. I wanted to do a separate post about it. George did this for me. I told him about a month ago that I needed a new look and he said he would work on it. But then he got so incredibly busy he couldn't do it until now. I LOVE IT!! I couldn't be happier how it looks. He is so good at this stuff. I think I will keep him around for a while longer!! Thanks George you rock!!!!

Jen H

Happy Birthday Jen H!! Jen and I have been friends since Kindergarten. I remember in grade 2 I had a sleepover for all the girls in my class. Jen was invited. And her dad walked her to my house. She was so shy. Her dad talked my parents and told them that she was a little nervous and shy. So we tried to make her as comfortable as we could. I think it worked!! We were in the same class from Kindergarten through to grade 5. She was Jen H and I was Jenn S. My dad use to call us Jenn squared, or Jenn to the power of 2!! Lol.. wow pretty cheesy!! Anyway,we lost touch after grade 5, I went to a different school for grade 6,7 and 8. But in grade 9 we met up again. We have stayed friends over the years. We may not talk all the time.. its hard cause I am no longer in the same city. But she will always be my friend and I think/hope I will always be hers!!

Have a great day Jen H!!

Your friend Jenn S!!

November is National Diabetes Month..

Chris and Denise,

When Emma was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes I really didn't know what that meant. I thought ok.. She needs needles every day for the rest of her life and she cant eat candy anymore. Its not that I thought it wasn't a big deal or anything its just I didn't know anything about it. I am learning a lot about it from your blog Chris. I was very happy to know that she could still be a kid and eat candy. Of course that's one of the first things I thought of because being her Auntie its my job to bring her treats when I come to visit. I just wanted to let you guys know we are thinking about you out here and I will continue to learn more.

I have been totally obsessed with my new weight loss plan. I check EVERYTHING to see how many calories it contains. How many carbs and fat. This is new to me so its kinda taken over my brain. I just hope I keep it up. I have only been doing it for about 4 days and I already feel better. I know I haven't loss anything yet but I feel good about myself. So that's a start right?

Yesterday was the first time in about 2 weeks George has been home. So we are all up in the morning.. About to make breakfast and his cell phone rings. Its the Argos, they have a problem with one of the ticketing booths at the box office. So George has to go down to fix whatever the problem is. So we decide to get ready and go with him. When we get there its all good. Whatever was broken isn't anymore. So we just hung out for a bit to make sure everything is ok. Then we were offered tickets for the game because George came in and we were all in tow. Supper nice!! So we got to watch The Bombers vs Argos! Kinda cool. Jarret was torn didn't know who to cheer for. We got to our seats and there was Bomber fans all around us so it made it easier to cheer for them. Unfortunately they lost. It was amazing how loud it was though when the Argos won! Very cool. We will be cheering them on for the Grey Cup!!

Today I stepped on the scale which I HATE doing cause I know I have gained a lot of weight since moving here. And I am at the heaviest I have EVER been. Even pregnant I wasn't this heavy. So I am going to do something about it. I cant really afford to go to the gym. I do have some workout videos at home I have done here and there. So I found this website and I signed up right away. I put in my current weight, then put in my goal weight and when I want to meet this weight. It gave me the amount of calories I can have each day.. It gave me meal plans and a fitness plan. I told a few people about it in hopes we can do it together cause it would be that much easier for motivation.

Wish me luck.. I need to do this..

oh yah its all free too!!!!
