Life is busy… as usual.

We had a nice weekend.  Amanda came home Saturday and spent the day learning to make cinnamon rolls (from the master – nini).  She came home with three big pans of cinnamon rolls.  Just what we need.  🙂  She took some back to school with her.  They also made a chocolate cake.  Yikes!  I’m have been really watching my points so will-power was a must this weekend!  The kids enjoyed playing bball with Matt Saturday afternoon.  Me and Matt went for a long walk Saturday morning.  We had dinner at Goporum Saturday evening.  It was pretty good, hot but good. fulfillment house.

Sunday was mostly church … and basketball playing.  I made bacon cheese burgers for lunch.  Meatless.  Morningstar prime grillers and morningstar (fake) bacon on the one point thin whole wheat buns (love those). 

I have been drinking a lot more water, mostly with crystal light packets (lemonade, rasberry lemonade, and wild strawberry) because I really don’t like water.  I made a new rule for myself to only have water with meals.  It’s not that bad really.  Then I get one coke a day… I save it for after dinner, something to look forward to!

Tori (pray4tori.com) died this weekend.  She had a near drowning accident four years ago… She had the same birthday as me and was only 19 when she passed.  Very sad.  I’m praying for her family, I can’t imagine the loss they feel right now. 

We have  a meeting in the morning with Camilla and the equipment guy to look over bath chair and car seat options.  Hoping that goes well.  I can’t say enough how much I appreciate the team at school.  I really couldn’t do it without them… they are great.  Melanie sent home izzy’s sight words today to work on and said that the OT Barbara wants to be a back up to feed iz at school.   God has really blessed us with them!

Horaayy..there are 5 comment(s) for me so far ;)

Sounds like a lovely weekend… I would not have much willpower with cinnamon rolls and chocolate cake anywhere around 🙂 You’re doing great with your eating, such discipline!

Yay!! Your back up! I *love* homemade cinnamon rolls! I am going to have to make some this weekend! Have you tried the Citrus flavor and the strawberry/banana flavor drink packs, those are my favorite.

Your Mom makes THE BEST cinnamon rolls in the world. My granddaughters in Memphis can match her now! Their Mom taught them. (The girls are 18 and 16 now) Quite a busy family now that they have the new baby girl (3 mos. old). That makes 5 girls and 5 boys.

Glad to hear all your kids are doing well in school. Can NOT believe Izzy is old enough to be reading! How exciting!

So sorry about Tori. I followed her blog for a long time and had checked it recently. I had no idea about her death until I read it here.

Have a great week!

Hello Annie,
So glad to read that you had a nice weekend! those great little pleasures like walking with your sweetheart and having a nice dinner go a long way!
I found a recipe for sinnamon swirls on the new Jamie Oliver’s book (-50% on Amazon). I already did the pancakes. I have baked all afternoon due to repeat orders lol!
Kisses to Izzy, I am so pleased for her progress!
Love and hugs,
Irene
P.S. I messed with my sidebar (again…) but now I have added you again!!!

Our hearts and prayers are with Tori’s family as well. They are actually local to us and we had the opportunity to visit with Tim during one of Tori’s stays at Primary Childrens Hospital.
