Is it Tuesday already?

I've lost 5.6 pounds in the last two weeks. I'm now closer to 200 than 250. Woo hoo! I am a mere 27 pounds away from being merely overweight and not obese. Double woo hoo!! Hoping to get there by Christmas so I can justify asking for Gap giftcards from everyone.

I've been breaking in two pairs of shoes, I have three more to go. I have feet covered in blisters and Band-Aids. In case you are wondering, Hello Kitty Band-Aids (Care Bears work too) are the best for padding the blister, but not getting stuck and bunching up and falling off when wearing leather shoes without stocking or socks. Hannah Montana and Pooh are not good enough.

Having my pants shortened was so worth it. Hello cute flats with more pants options.

Speaking of feet, M's toes are nearly peeking off the end of her sandals. Thank goodness it is nearly the end of the warm weather. I'm going to try to hold out another two weeks, since I have at least one pair of actual shoes a size larger, and then take her shoe shopping. At this rate, she'll be in adult size shoes by the time she's in Kindergarten. Are kids like puppies where they grow in to their feet?

It was chilly this morning, like fall chilly, and I was scrambling to find a sweater for M. Maybe I should get those out and make sure they're available.

I went through my closet on Sunday and found three more pairs of pants that fit me now. I have more in the next size down, but I think that is as small as I have. The jeans I have that are smaller, will not work. I had horrid taste in washes as little as 5 years ago. Eeegads.

We want to be able to go and enjoy some of the end of summer activities around here, but M's potty issues had threatened to get in the way. I ordered a Potette today. I hope she'll go in it. Would you all hope a little for me. I need cheese curds and a Pronto Pup.

We have a potette & it stays in the Blazer (currently - had been in stroller a time or two for park visits when potty-training was more... time-sensitive) & I love it. We've found it a really, really great back-up option for trips through the middle of nowhere or parks w/o bathroom access. With M's fear of auto-flushers, you'll find it very handy, esp since it's small enough for a diaper bag.

Oh, I never pack away _every_ sweater/sweatshirt/hoodie. Trust me, you never know when you'll need one 'round these parts.

Yay for your weight-loss! Maybe that'll inspire me to buckle down, for lo, I have been neglectful of my calories.

Congrats on the weight loss!! you can do it by Christmas, just keep on taking it day by day.

with Mr. J (our 1st) we had that happen & since then & now we keep a sweat jacket out for each kid or sweatshirt because of that reason.

The funny part is that I had some out before, I just couldn't find them. I couldn't find any of them that I swore were just in the closet. Sweater monster ate them.

Way to go on the weight loss! And good luck w/ the potty training. I am absolutely no help in this area at all.

Potty training and the state fair...let's talk about how un-fun that was for us! Boo was not ready to be out that much, but we knew that we didn't want to miss out. This was before they had cool collapsable pottys and such. Plastic bags...extra clothes and wipes. It was a trail but so worth it!!
