From the Mouth of Babes

E.v.e. : I love you Momma (hugs my leg)

Me: How do you know you love me? (I keep washing the dishes)

E.v.e.: Because I kiss you, silly!

(We both laugh)

Me: What if you couldn’t kiss me?  Would you still know you love me? (look down at her sweet angel face)

E.v.e.: NO MORE KISSES?! That would be sad. (most adorable pouting face ever)

Me: Yes, it would be sad, how would you know you loved me if you could never kiss me again?

(Long Pause)

E.v.e.: I know I love you cause I misses you when you’re gone.

Day 9 On a Roll!

Today is day 9 of being addiction free! I can’t believe I have made it over a week with no carbs, milk, or sugar!! So proud of myself.  I deserve to be healthy and feel fabulous 😀  All of the pain and withdrawl symptoms have passed and now it is just a matter of not giving in to the desire to taste something sweet and full of flour.

I got a chance to weigh myself on day 6 and was very shocked by what the scale said.  I usually only weigh myself the “right” way (in the morning after I got potty before I shower or eat and naked as a blue jay) in order to give me the lowest weight of the day.  On day six though it was right after I had eaten dinner and I had just drank about 4 cups of water.  I was a little nervous to step on the scale!! I thought to myself as long as I don’t weigh more than when I started I think I will be ok.

Dun DUn DUN~ Even taking my weight the “wrong” way it still said I had lost 11 POUNDS!!  I couldn’t believe it.  After getting off the scale and going about my day I kept thinking, “All I did was stop eating sugar and carbs and I lost 11 pounds in less than a week?! Please someone remind me why I want to ever eat sugar and carbs!!”

I think once I am getting to a better health limit and it is obvious my addiction is re-broken I am going only allow myself sugar one day a week.  Like only saturdays or something and other than that I am going to keep staying away from it all the rest of the week.  I am also going to try to stay away from baked goods all but one day too and just eat little portions of whole wheat pasta and oatmeal and such.

I am excited to see myself in a few months when I have lost all this weight.  ❤


This was a happy accident. Ended up looking like an angel lifting a person up to heaven

Painted this to go along with the first one

This is how they will hang on the wall. ❤ These are by far the simplest paintings I have ever done but have become a couple of my favorites.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Monday – not sure which but one of the girls nearly locked us out of the house.  I proceeded to give them both a big lecture on not locking the door. If the little button is up and down “|” it is locked, if it is side to side “–” it is unlocked – DO NOT turn the button up and down “|” it should ALWAYS stay side to side “–“.

Wednesday – Got locked out of the house, phone was left inside.  E.v.e. admitted to touching the doors button so she got a spank

Thursday – LOCKED OUT AGAIN!!! and again without my phone.  I was so incredibly upset I wanted to shout at the top of my lungs.  I was just about to go find a bottom to spank(probably E.v.e.s) when I just happened to glance in and notice the button looked like this “–“……..seriously?  Despite the fact that every single lock I have ever seen in my entire life would be unlocked if it were in this “–” position, this lock is locked. Turns out I had actually taught the girls to LOCK the door thinking I was teaching them to UNlock it.  Sigh.  I didn’t even bother asking who was responsible.
