His Fedora I won on ebay came today. I was so glad it did, because he really feels crummy. Off to the doctor tomorrow.
Update: Up with Bub at 4:30am with a high fever, it is going down now and he is watching a movie, but I can't fall back asleep hence the post.
2nd Update: Bub has Strep Throat

If spring were a feeling it would be joy. The burst of color, the return of flowers and birds, less darkness, more sunlight — just taking a walk around my neighborhood makes me feel exuberant, playful, happy. Joy is an important emotion to cultivate in your family. The feeling of joy brings cheerfulness, zest, a sense of optimism and hope — it makes us want to move and dance and be with others. And research on positive emotions, including joy, shows that joy not only feels good, but it also builds important resources. Positive emotions help facilitate resilience, they contribute to creative thinking, and they help maintain social connections. Having more joy in your family isn't hard. All it requires is an awareness of what brings each member of the family joy and then carving out time to devote to those activities.

Me: "Bub that was not polite your supposed to let ladies go first."
Me: "Um well it's good etiquette, it's just how it is"
Bub: "Well that's just not right when I am older I am going to fight for Men's rights so we can both walk thru the door at the same time"
Me: Laughing hysterically

Dinner with the Jones Family and Friends.

1.) Book review!
Jesus Calling is an awesome book for daily devotional.
2.) When is it okay not to listen to the words? Explain about a song you really love that has lame lyrcis or lyrics you simply don't understand.(writingfix.com)
hmm drawing a total blank.......
3.) Why won't you forget? List six true sentences that begin with the words 'I'll never forget...' Then use all six of your sentences in a paragraph, poem, or longer descriptive piece.
I'll never forget my wedding day to the only man on earth that will put up with me.
I'll never forget the birth of my son even though it was painful it was the best day ever.
I'll never forget Mindy, I miss her a lot.
I'll never forget how blessed I am to have such great friends and family.
I'll never forget all the great times in High school with my friend Shannyn, we did some crazy stuff but we always had a blast.
I'll never forget all the country festivals with my friend Dana, we had so much fun.
I did not write a paragraph, poem or longer description--no time today:)
4.) Write about an interaction you had with a salesman.
I hardly ever have interactions with salesmen. I usually look away and hope that if I can't see them anymore, they can't see me...ahahaha or say no thanks and keep walking.
5.) What's for dinner? I'm starving.
What's for dinner? Good question, since for the last 2 weeks I keep forgetting to pull anything out in the morning to thaw out to fix for dinner. So for the last two weeks it has been, quesadillas, pizza, hot dogs, sandwiches, and wraps. I did manage to make sausage and rice one night. I basically have made anything that did not entail actual cooking. Tonight is no exception, I have been running around like a mad women all day and after school, even though I pulled out ground meat this morning it is not thawed..errr...so back to the drawing board. What's for Dinner --Who knows?? My poor family, I really need to get it together in the dinner department.

I feel like a little ball of stress lately, I have been running around like a crazy lady.
I feel like that movie Ground Hogs Day, because the last two weeks have consisted of this:
- Waking up a child who does not want to go to school
- Want to pull my hair out
- Get to school either drop him off or go in to volunteer
- Off to run errands and attend appointments
- Grab a bite to eat, then feel gross because I ate to quick, feel a dull headache coming take some excedrin
- Back to school to pick up Bub
- Home to take a 15-20 minute break
- Try to do homework with an uncooperating participant
- Want to pull my hair out, head is starting to throb take some more excedrin
- Then try to find something for dinner because I have yet again forgotten to take something out...errr
- Hubby gets home late and he is tired and stressed
- Get food in everyone
- Me and hubby try to fold clothes, unload dishwasher, run vacuum
- Try to do a post, too tired and my computer hates me, keeps freezing up....errrr. Me and photobucket are no longer friends. I log onto facebook real fast, check on everyone, get off because my head is starting to pound now.....
- Take some more excedrin and watch a few seconds of T.V. before my eyes close on me while laying on the couch from the lovely migraine I aquired during the day.
- 4/17 - Nada, Migraine
- 4/18 - Rummage Sale at school, moved a lot, ate dinner with my BF's parents that are moving (I will post pics later) -- ended up with a Migraine before the night was over..ughhh
- 4/19 - Nada, Migraine
- 4/20 - 30 minute Walk
- 4/21 - Nada, Migraine
- 4/22 - hopefully no migraine and I can squeeze a walk in today
**Almost Forgot -- Happy Earth Day**
**Please Pray Hard for Kayleigh, she had surgery 4/18 and needs prayers for healing and yesterday her parents posted this http://kayleighannefreeman.blogspot.com/2009/04/42109-please-lord-help-us.html , it is heartbreaking**
Also a friend of ours, Marc, was in a car accident this morning, please pray for him, he is at the hospital getting his neck and back checked out.

Well yesterday I did get a walk in even though it was late. Ends up when it is almost bath time children suddenly have a desire to go for a walk who knew:) We just went around the block, which was about 20 minutes so not quite 30, but close.
Today I did a lot of moving since it was the Honor Roll cookout at our school and we were busy from 9a.m.-1:30p.m. getting set up, running around the school, serving the kids, taking down everything and clean up. I am exhausted, not to mention Bub had a dentist appointment today that almost dropped the bomb on, I had totally forgot about it till this morning. Then I had to go to my favorite place, the grocery store, after the dentist, then Chick-Fil-A and then finally home. My legs are literally throbbing right now. I did try to get hubs to go for a real walk with me because I wanted to torture myself some more, but he has to fix our pump out back. Seems yesterday it blew something and water was spewing everywhere, Ginger enjoyed it though because she was nice and wet when we brought her in. She loves water, except when its bath time. Well I guess I have rambled enough, Have a great evening.
**I found this article yesterday: 5-Minute Meals That Melt Off Pounds, I think I may have to give some of these a try**

I think these Seals have been sending me subliminal messages all day:
Them:"Be one of the snobby girls and don't do that 30x5 today, I mean there is always tomorrow right?"
Me: "No I will walk when Bub get's home."
Them: "Oh please he is not going to want to do that"
Me: "Oh yes he will" , "Bub you want to go for a walk with Mom",
Bub: "Maybe later, eye roll"
Me: "o.k., we will go when it gets cooler"
Bub: "eye roll, sure mom"
Them: "He is not going to go, just blog and facebook some more, we told you there is always tomorrow"
Me: "Hush please, lalalalala"
O.k. now that ya'll all think I should be committed to the funny farm for talking to
myself them, I caved to the snobby Seals, I still want to go walking but it is getting late and I don't see it happening unless hubs will go with me later, because Bub has bailed on the whole idea as of now to partake in swinging outside. There is always tomorrow right?

The first video is for 30x5, the second is just because I love my dog:)
I would post another one, but I don't want to end up a crispy critter, since now it has begun to lightning:( I will post a better one of her talking later...
Update: The rain/lightning/wind let up and I was able to walk on my treadmill for 30 minutes while GH was on today, no workout video..WooooHooo:)

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.
Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.
He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.
Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.
Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.
So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!

Well how has this experience changed my life..hmmm..That was the question right?:
- I have gained new blogging friends
- I don't feel so bad when I can't get motivated, because now I know
their are other slackers just like meI am not alone;)
- I have walked my little tush off all in the name of 30x5, because I did not want to disappoint Linda or my blogging friends, nothing like being
bulliedencouraged to get you motivated to exercise.
- I actually feel better since I am getting off my rump and not being a big ole blog potato all day.
- I have gained a new appreciation for Kashi Bars.
- Still hate my treadmill, but it is a mean to an end:(
- I hope I have lost a pound or two, but I have no scale on vaca to tell me??
Can't wait for the next challenge Linda :)

I will be doing a lot of 30x5 since we will be walking a lot, so don't think I am slacking my 30x5 friends. I hope everyone has a great week.
I leave you with a new yummo product I found this week at the store and a video:
was talking about on her blog the other day, but I did find these and oh my goodness they are good and taste just like pumpkin pie.

April’s assignment: Because April is when a lot of high schools hold their proms, It has been dubbed April’s theme as “Black Tie Affair”. It can be photos of you and/or your family dressed up. It doesn’t necessarily have to be “Black Tie,” but rather it can be any occasion that calls for you to be dressed up a little more than usual: prom, formals, theater shows, balls, parties…
