Goal #12 - Check

It's strange the things I miss. I miss most of all my ability to care for my children's needs. In February while I was on Boise for therapy, Jack got sick. That Sunday, I didn't want him going to church and spreading the live, so Jack and I stayed home. Everyone else was at church, so of course, Jack would need a diaper change. Jack is truly so sweet. He asked me if I could change him, and I told him I would try but I would need his help. I am sure not feeling well worked in my favor this time, because he laid so still and was quite helpful. So it took some time, but we did it. Jack stood up and proudly yelled, "we did it" and we shared a high five!

This week, Jack, Talon, and I stayed home for a few hours while my Mom worked. Talon of course took a little more convincing, and it took both me and Jack to change him, but we did it. Not that I am on permanent diaper duty now, but it's nice to know it can be done if I have too.

Goal #8 - Check

Finding a pair of comfortable shoes was always tricky, and even now that's no exception. I need shoes that are easy enough to put on myself, but comfortable enough to wear all day. Thank heavens for Zappo's free shipping! After about four different pairs, I found these gems.
They are comfortable, easy for me to put on, cute, and will probably last me the rest of my life. Now onto my sub-goal, learning to tie them. YIKES!

Goal #19 - Check

Well I am pretty excited to check this one off the list! When I went to the Elks in February I had lost 19 pounds. I was just one pound shy of my 20 pound goal. Bummer! When I was home those next six weeks, I was definitely not as diligent as I could have been. I mean come on, it was girl scout cookie and Cadbury eggs season! I was more than a little surprised when I went back in May to find I had lost 15 more pounds! 34 total! Apparently moving and exercising is good for you! So here's to 34 gone! And hopefully more. Ill be glad to never see you again lbs!
