The life of a WAHM, scrapbooker and Disneyland geek. Welcome to my crazy life!
I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar: Billabong-inspired Tee
I've just been busy but I'm making a commitment to get back to my online blogging. I may use my new URL as a personal and recycling/ upcycling/ crafty blog..... we'll see.... Check me out over there as well.
Day one in my eat well while spending less challenge. I've been trying to improve my diet so I can take off some weight. However, I haven't really been trying to get in all the fruits and veggies I ought to. I also haven't been making myself stick to a predetermined budget. I am challenging myself to change our menu to eat better and try to eat for less.
It took me 2 days to get through the entire book. No, I'm not going to reveal what happens. Yes, it was a great book. Which one is my favorite? I'm not sure but this last one has to be right at the top of the list.
Drew read the latest Harry Potter book from start to finish. Now it is my turn to read but I have a feeling it will take me more than one day to get done.
Mark seems to have a talent for catching me with an odd expression on my face.The kids amused themselves watching the water ripple across the pool. All in all it was a perfect summer day.
After 13 years with a child in the house I forgot how quiet it can be and how good it feels to have a good book to read in the quiet. This summer I've zipped through 6 or 7 romance novels and have enjoyed every minute of it. I've got a couple more to breeze through before the new Harry Potter book comes out on July 21.
It's the little things
Even my feet are shrinking. I am thrilled by the fact that my feet are now medium width instead of wide. I can't wait to go shoe shopping.
I worked on the 3rd and 4th of July selling fireworks. I had a great time helping out the local Boys and Girls Club by working as a volunteer in their booth for a few hours each day.
I shocked my 13 year old son by being able to fit into one of his new shirts.
I kicked up my work outs and started counting calories (to some degree) and dropped 4 pounds this week. I'm so glad to see the numbers on that scale finally changing.
I started water aerobics and I have been really enjoying it. So now I'm working out for an hour 6 days a week. 5K on the treadmill 3 days a week and water aerobics the other 3, then just a 30 minute walk on Sundays.
I took 2 tests last week and aced them both. Why didn't I mention this last week? I just got my test results back this week for one of the tests.
My 13 year old is getting ready to leave for a week at Scout camp. He leaves in less than 2 hours. This is his first sleep away camp so I'm a little excited and a little nervous. He got his hair cut so he wouldn't roast a camp. I can't believe how mature he is starting to look.
I started shopping for uniforms for my son to go back to school. It isn't that I'm excited for him to go back to school, but I'm glad to get at least some of the shopping done and out of the way. When Drew goes back to school, I'm hoping to head back to work (at a regular 9 to 5 type job.)
Almost nothing in my closet fits me anymore. It is time to get my sewing machine out and do some work on the clothes that I really love.
I stopped drinking decaffeinated drinks about 2 weeks ago. It wasn't intentional, I just ended up shopping when that was all that was on the shelf. After I suffered through a few days of nasty headaches, I decided that I wasn't going back to drinking caffeine on a regular basis. I've been drinking a lot more water; it's good for me, right?
My son finished school June 8 so we took off June 9 bright and early to enjoy a day at Disneyland. We arrived just as the park opened and started off for Tomorrowland.
I'm not a very good shot so you can see that I've ridden this ride way too many times!!! I love that you can get these free pictures mailed to your home email address and print them out at home. I like that they show your score while on the ride to.
We took a trip on Star Tours and Space Mountian. The next stop was for the boys to turn in their VMK quests. The kiosk outside was not manned so we dashed into Innoventions to find the indoor VMK kiosk. I'm not sure if this was simply because it was a busy day or if this change will be permanent for the hot summer months. The inside of Innoventions is much cooler for the Cast Members, that is for sure! After getting some new VMK cards the boys couldn't resist spending some time playing VMK.
Next they visited with Stitch. We love this attraction that is located in the Innoventions building. This is a picture I took of Stitch but they also give you a photo that you can download and print at home. For some reason Blogger doesn't want to upload the picture or I'd post it here for you.
After Innoventions we rode Autopia, ate lunch, rode the Matterhorn, Big Thunder Railroad, Haunted Manstion, Splash Mountain, we piloted the Mark Twain, went to Tom Sawyer's Island, Indiana Jones, Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin, Gadget's Go Coaster, Another go round on Roger Rabbit and finally ended up with Space Mountain. Whew! What a day it was!!!
My Disneyland Checklist
Are you heading out to Disneyland this summer? Have to use a wheelchair for some reason? Read this for helpful hints.
It isn’t just for kids. Disneyland is for adults too. To have a good trip to Disneyland you have to do your homework. What? You don’t do any research before you go to the park? Oh my, well, let me tell you how to plan a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.
I know this one's still out there and I think I will update it the next time we visit the Mouse. However, I have a new blog for scrapbooking and it is located http://www.jenniahart.com/blog/
It is Spring Break and we've been enjoying our time off at Disneyland. Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration officially starts on 05-05-05 and they are making some exciting changes in the park. You can read more about the celebration here. If you want to get more information on Disneyland there are many good Disney fan sites. I like Mouse Planet and Mouse Info. Both sites have active discussion boards. I also enjoy peeking into the past at Yesterland. Some of the rides I remember and some I'm too young to remember.
