Back To Normal... (if that's possible..)

We had some friends from MI come and visit a couple week-ends ago! We had a BLAST!!!! Chris and Samantha came LATE Friday and stayed til Tuesday!! I wish they were able to stay longer, but plans are for them to come out again in July or Aug!!! :O) We went to the Grand Opening of PETLAND! The kids LOVED looking at all the cute little puppies!! (Of course asking when we could get one! But then Kotah answered herself and said when the kitties die we can get a puppy. I think she may have overheard us a couple of times with this discussion! We have 2 cats and said that we can't get a puppy until they pass away.) Then we went to go see the Veggie Tale, The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything movie! It was sooo good!!! Yes, we all sat in the theater! Even Skylar! She LOVED it!! I watched her facial expressions most of the time! It was soo funny to watch her watch the movie!!! :O) If you haven't seen it, go see it!!! It is AWESOME!!!!!! And of course Chris brought his XBOX 360, so we played some fun games with that!!!! Stayed up way tooo late a couple of nites!! :O)

Going to try to get back on track with school work for Kotah. We've kinda slacked off for about a month. We've done some, but not enough! I guess that's the beauty of being home schooled, you never really "behind"!!! With being sick with the flu about a month ago, and now a cold, it's not fun! Trying to stay caught up on laundry and make sure the kids are eating, and giving the right medicine to the right kid with the right dose! Ugh... I am on a salad and fruit diet right now! Why do you ask? I am trying to "clean" myself out! I got some detox tea to help. ;o) I am tired of being sick and want to see if this helps. Okay, so I kinda cheated 2 nites in a row. I made some scalloped potatoes and pork chops with a corn casserole, I HAD to try it, I did, just a little though, and had a big salad with that, then the other nite I made tacos and it smelled really yummy, so I had one too. No salad. But right back on track again today. (Oh, did I mention I had either nothing to eat or all fruit the days I actually ate "real" food? ;o)) I had fruit for lunch today and nice big ol salad for supper tonite. ;o) After the 2nd day I was also craving some chocolate, not any chocolate, but the Edy's Girl Scout Thin Mint ice cream that's in our freezer! I did NOT give in to that though!!! :O) I also have some thin mints that I made in the freezer, and am happy to say that when Curt offered me one, I declined. (What is wrong with me? I DECLINED a THIN MINT?!?!?!?! LOL) So, I will be on this for a couple more days and see what happens.
Wish me luck!!! :O)
Oh yeah, I do have one can of pepsi a day. ;o)
