Someone that I went to High School with started a Facebook group for "our" graduating class.  Our is in quotes because I didn't actually graduate, but I went most of the time right up until graduation.  I should have gone back for a "super senior" year, but seeing as how I would much rather not go to school I didn't.  So far this has had ZERO negative effects on me.

If I had not "dropped out" (again quotes because dropping out doesn't feel right, I went all 12 years, I just didn't go enough to graduate for the last 3) I probably would not be married to my wonderful husband, because I wouldn't have moved to Salem and ever met him.  So YAY for not graduating.  Also I have had quite a few jobs (all entry level to be fair) and I have NEVER been told no for a job based on my lack of diploma.  (Okay I did not get a job once, but it was a baby-sitting job, so I don't think that counts, as a diploma is completely irrelevant since I have been baby-sitting since I was 12)   I also never got my GED because the local community college has an uncanny ability to give me panic attacks almost every time I go there, plus I am cheap.  Now I want to take the GED test, just to say I did, but after not being in school for 6 year I have a feeling I would fail miserably. 

Anyways, now that I have taken you off on a tangent, I will try and get back to the story.  The person that created this group is planning a pre-reunion party for our class.  This is kind of funny, because although I didn't have many friends in high school, and very few in my grade, I really want to go.  I was not popular, I would bet half of the people I have been talking to the last few days have no idea who I am.

One thing I was in high school was skinny.  Like people asked me all the time how I got so skinny.  Best of all I still had relatively big boobs (hey wait, why was I not popular?).  Now I have genuinely big boobs, but I'm about 20lbs over my senior year weight.  So this reunion of sorts is at the end of August.  That means that if I want to go (which I do, but I tend to get overwhelmed by social situations and flake at the last minute as I sit crying to my husband that I don't want to go) I really need to get on the weight loss thing.  But I don't know if I will get to it or not.  I mean just the idea of giving up my soda, chips, crackers, candy, and frozen desserts makes me sad.

I think my goal is going to be to drink a knock-off SlimFast for breakfast and lunch, snack all day on fruits and veggies, eat a reasonable dinner, then eat dessert if I want to.  Also I think I will TRY (not very hard, because I hate caffeine withdrawal headaches which I get sometimes) to only drink soda on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, because those are the days I want it most.  Instead I will try to drink Crystal Light, which is pretty good, and would probably be awesome if it was carbonated.  On Saturday and Sunday I won't follow my eating plan either, because my husband will be home and want meals, plus we go to the movies sometimes and I love popcorn.

On the exercise front, I think with the cancellation of Netflix Michael will be willing to walk more with me.  Also maybe I will actually get up with him in the mornings like he wants me to and then take a walk before the kids get dropped off.  And on days I don't have the 5 year old, and our room mate isn't home, I will try and get some stretching/aerobics type stuff in.

Here's hoping!

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
