Books Flying Through the Air!

We have been having a wonderful vacation this we went to a Science Museum.. I personally thought it was a total waste of time and money.. but the kids seem to enjoy it for a bit. We went to eat after that, then decided to shop in Borders. Oh my word, what were we thinking!!!??? My son, who is nearly 5, was getting a little, hmmm... rambunctious, decides to start spinning this bookshelf that rotates and holds hundreds of books. I told him, from about 5 feet away, "Don't do that". I said that phrase three times. And all three times I was ignored. Not a second after my third warning.. did I see books flying in every direction. With one hard but fast pull my son had whipped that shelf around, sending oh.. hmm.. probably a good 75 to 100 books flying. I believe I was instantly stunned. Kicking myself mentally, I gritted my teeth, and let him know he was in big trouble later, and bent my sunburned body and I mean SUNBURNED, and began picking up the books.

Two things I learned today.

1. Expect the Unexpected. When your kids aren't listening, grab them before they take that extra DELIBERATE spin.

2. People do not help anymore. I just couldn't believe it. I think 1 lady walked by and picked up 1 book. But of all the people there.. they just look at us.. over there precious books, then went back to reading. Where is the compassion lol

I wish I could of taken a picture of the piles of books, and where they landed.. so that you would really understand what I had to deal with lol I will tell you what.. I was pretty embarrassed.. but quickly realized.. things could of been worse and it could of cost me a whole lot of money. Thank goodness, the situation was easily fixed. I truly hope my little guy learned a lesson today. Probably not..but I am hoping lol

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
