last night.

last night i went to bed at 9:30.  brooklyn woke up at 2:30 to go to the bathroom.  at 3 she came into our room which meant i was pushed out into her room.  Sophia woke up at four.  She has had benedryl and tylonol.  its 6:30 and she is still awake still crying.  we are locked in brooklyns room.  at this point i am so tired and have a head ache i could probably cry.  Oh wait I forgot today is super super busy.  I have to go to the post office, then V.T. confrence, i'm leaving there early so we can get trents car out of the shop.  All 4 break pads had to be replaced,  Then to the mall for a quick makeup trip.  (it's only like 12:30)  At 3 we are going to the parade so Devin can walk around selling the shirts i made and the hair bows rachel made.  i now think i am going to ignore sophia and either she can pass out on the floor or  can lay her down around nine so i can do all the morning things by myself!!!! 

the top pics are of the tshirts i am selling.  email me if you are intrested.

what a week so far

this week was our first combined FHE.  I think it was a big success.  The girls had fun playing the game and learning how Jesus helps us.  This week we have also been babysitting for the Fuller's.  That handsome little guy is Luke (Loop if you ask Brooklyn).  Well the girls have been extremely good with him.  Sophia is just facinated with him and loves to make him laugh.  She is suprisingly gentle not to touch him to hard or on his face.  Brooklyn likes to play mommie and shows him all sorts of toys and explains how to work them.  We have also been able to play with Lilah.  Last time we babysat the girls weren't getting along very well but this time has been different.  All three of them have been taking turns and sharing.  So far no fussing or fighting.  I think Sophia might have a new best friend!!!

Happy MLK Jr. Day (not really)

All I can say about him is thanks for a day off.  I knew a lady that knew him and from what she said he was a bad man, so therefore he is NOT celebrated in my house.  I was going to somehow work in him into FHE tonight but everything I thought of made me seem racist (which I am not), so he'll be left out.

So tonight the Londonns are coming over and twice a month we're going to family home evening together.  We'll see how long we can keep up with it but I am excited to start.  Today was my day for food and Rachel's day for the lesson.  I am making home-made red beans and rice and cornbread.  For dessert we are having chocolate/red velvette cupcakes.  YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have a new weight loss strategy.  Last year I worried about what I ate and was stressed out from everything else I only lost 2lb the whole year.  So this year instead of keeping track of weight I am going to keep eating healthy but not keep track of anything.  I can not stress about it or it will never happen.  I am going to set work out goals.  This week my goal is to walk on the treadmill 10 minutes a day.  next week will be fifteen, ect, ect.  Before I know it i will have worked up to like 30 min!!!!  So there is my goal.  I want to be a size 10 before I see Jessie!!!!!!

Brooklyn is old enough to go to primary.  I was so nervous that she wouldn't do well but she went in sat down and told me bye.  What a big girl.  The adults in there with her said she did such a good job sitting and listening.  I am so proud.  Three more months and Sophia will be in nursery.  I wonder how that one is going to go.  There is a total of seven kids moving up to primary.  When did she get so big? 

all night

Sophia slept all night last night!!!  Maybe it's the melatonin finally working or the fact she didn't have a nap yesterday, whichever it was we didn't hear from her till SIX A.M.!!!!!  That's the first time in four months she has slept the whole night and when she woke up I put her in bed with me and Trent and she went back to sleep for 45 more minutes.  Now if she can keep that up her and Brooklyn will sleep in the same room.  I think we will have  just the beds in one room and have all the toys and t.v. in the other.  I guess we'll see tonight if this is going to be a trend or not.  I sure hope it is because today I actually don't feel tired.  I am going to give it till the end of the month.  If she is still sleeping through the night then I'll move the beds around.

same song diffrent dance.

i need someone to be accountable to.  when i did powerlifting i had to check in with coach benny.  now even though he looks mean and ruff he's not.  but the fact that i was accountable for working out to someone was motivation enough to get me going.  this past year not so much.  i didnt loose ANY of the 20lbs i gained with sophia.  none, not a bit. and on top of everything i think i was always tired and stressed out.  i want this year to be diffrent.   So here is what i am asking.  does anyone want to be the person i check in with and maybe give me a reward?    like "jeni you lose x amount by y day and i'll buy you a new shirt."  little things to keep me going. now you dont have to offer a reward, just support.  thats all i ask.  now i'll say my first goal is to weigh 155 by the second week of febuary.  six weeks should be plenty of time to do that in.  it's only 7 lbs!  jump on board in supporting me and we'll see how this new year new me goes.
