I am borderline type 2 diabetic. This means that as long as I stay healthy, eat good, and exercise to an extent I will be fine. I have had very few problems since my son was born. Thank the Good Lord I am on the better side now.
I think I will start with cutting out all soda and any extra calorie stuff. Soda will be my hardest part. I love Dr. Pepper. I have 2 a day. Not a lot you say? Well, It must be too much. I even considered going to diet soda. I am not sure. At first I may just do the water thing.
Please let me know if anyone has any ideas for me. I will let you all know how everything goes.
I also wanted to update everyone on our friends that came over to watch the Nascar race, and started having contractions. Well the Nascar Baby was born Thursday July 27, 2009 at 7:55 am. His name is Jason. His middle name is still up for debate. Personally I think his dad will get the name he wants. He was 7 lb 15 oz and 18 1/2 inches long. He and mom are doing great! We visited yesterday evening and all was well. I don't think his big sister is ready for a little brother though. This will be interesting.

- Ground Meat - $1.69 lb x 2 lb = $3.38
- Taco Seasoning - $0.50 x 2 packs = $1.00
- Corn Tortillas - $1.29 -$1.00 coupon = $0.29
- Cheese - $2.50
- Lettuce - $1.29
- Tomatoes - Free from great neighbor's garden!
- Sour Cream - $2.00
- Oil - $2.00 for 48 oz divided by 5 oz = $0.21
My total came out to be $10.67 divided into 4 people. WOW! I feed 4 people for about $2.67 a person!!! That is better than I thought! That wasn't so hard. I did get a lot of my ingredients on sale.
I will keep challenging my self, but now I also challenge you! Let me know if you can make a meal for $5.00 a person. I know it was just tacos, but its a start!

I got it in today and love it. My son has not seen it yet or he would want to wear it in our 100 degree heat. I think I will save it and pull it out as a big surprise the very first time it gets a little cool. (That seems like forever.) It is a good thing it's a 3t. He is still in a 2t at the moment. We all know how fast that could change. By the way I am still searching for the "Keep your baby from growing up and growing away from mommy" shot or pill. I wish someone would make that for me. Lol!
I also have been going to the Good Will stores around and found this great buy for the amazing price of $5.00. The best $5.00 I ever spent.
A Bob The Builder sleeping bag that we open and use as a blanket and a Bob The Builder pillow case!

Any way, when I got home from garage saleing my father-in-law was at the house visiting. After he left we finally just sat around and soaked up the A/C. But, that didn't last long. We had friends come over later. My husband is an awesome musician and has many people wanting to hang out and play or listen to him. So, that is what happened. Before I knew it we had a crowd, and good food was cooked, music was playing, and kids where having fun in the yard. It was great. The only down side was that it lasted to 1:00 am. Normally this is not bad, but we did have a few little ones who still needed a bath rally bad and where wound up.
The next day we got up a little to late for church, but not for Wal-Mart. My hubby stayed home (like the good man he is) to cut our grass and do yard work on out 2 acres of land. I took Will and we went grocery shopping for the week. Well needless to say, I spent more than I should. Its not all my fault. Wal-Mart had summer toys on sale. Will had some money from his Pee-Paw to spend. It was not enough for all the bubbles and stuff he wanted. Since it was all on sale I couldn't pass that up either. I got home just in time to finish the cleaning of dishes and floors form the night before. The Nascar race was coming on, and friends were on their way again.
This was some of the same friends that where here the night before. Well, with all the friends that I have that are pregnant. They are one set of them. She has a scheduled Cesarean for Thursday. But, she was having contractions at our house. (You knew that was coming didn't you!) After the race (how could men ever leave a Nascar race before it was finished) they left to pack her bags and headed to the hospital. The baby was not born Sunday. They sent her home, and now we wait! Wow, that made me tired again just remembering it all.
Today I clean house. Our family had a good weekend, and all is fine. I will let you all know when the Nascar baby is born. They all say he just was excited to watch the race and was upset because his driver didn't win!

Needless to say, We have been going over and over in our heads what we could do to stop the whining. He was such a lovely child before this stage. Now I just wonder what is around the corner. I was always the mom with such a good little boy. Now I am the mom with her little boy on his knees for throwing rocks, in the parking lot of a shopping center. Wow. When will it stop. Most people say never. Others just look at me and smile. Their faces overjoyed with my misery.
