Hope you all have a great JULY 4th

ONLY IN America can pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in America do people order a double cheeseburger, large fries AND a DIET coke.

Only in America do we buy hot dogs in packages of 10 and buns in packages of 8.

Only in America do banks leave both doors open, and then chain the pencil to the counter.

Only in America do we leave cars worth tens of thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in America do we use voice mail to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we don't want to talk to in the first place.

Enjoying the summer with my kids

Not sure why the pictures are on top . The post is at the bottome lol

I love summers but of course not the heat here in texas. But summer time i plan all kind of things for my kids. When i was growing up we stayed home daily never did much beside visit family . It was boring we made due with what we had . I had homemade toys , i pretended grocery store, played under the tree , put a diaper on my dog etc. Yes they were great times and i wouldnt want it any other way back then. But now days kids want to go , go , go . Well , I am sure i have some readers that are going to put their heads shaking when i post what i have on my mind. But ask me if i care NO because its my kids and my doings i do with my kids. I have nothing bad to say about staying home with family here at the murray's we do it sometimes too. But since we dont have a yard or any yard toys i must take my kids places or to mom's. So, with that said we went to our second time this summer to crosby community center (its only on weds) . Each week is a theme . Today was Fire safetly and the sprayed the kids with the truck hose. It was so much fun. Then i took them to the library and they got to pick three books out and a movie a piece. We do this until end of july plus the park is next door so i take them there too. On fridays they been going swimming. Well , this friday we are going to Old mcdonald farm. I found some coupons in the houston family magazine.

I do outings on a budget. This summer everything we are going to do i have a coupon on or found a discount code for it. Plus a lot of places are offering deals and things.

SO you can have a filled fun summer on a budget if you do your work by looking. Alot of great offers are out there you just have to look .

So anything exciting you are doing with your kids this summer or places you would like to share ?

closing with pictures

Camps are over YIPPIE

My kids last night at girl and boy scout camps (two different places) are done. Karley made a sock monkey and other crafts and learned new songs. Bailey got hosed down by the fire dept and went hiking and make nature crafts. They had a lot of fun. I am so glad my kids enjoy scouts. I would rather see them in a group that is lead by good postive standards and teaches them the respect of the lords nature etc. I am just not a sports mom (THANKGOODNESS they arent into sports).

We have a busy summer but i love it .

Beach (hoping this happens )
girl scout camp (in july )
Church camp (bailey he is going by his self i will be a basket case in august lol)
church events
crosby community center things
SO yes we are going to be busy not including the things we do with our family and us going to our reunion .

But i love to stay busy and so does my kids. They get along better and we have a great time together. Great memories

Well off to finish cleaning house and then going to gym and swimming . Have a great weekend.

Love juliet

Things i can do now but didnt do 5 months ago

I have been looking back on my life again. I know i posted this before but wanted to add to the list lol.

Some of these things might not be a big thing to you skinny folks but for someone who is learning a new life it is big.

Things i couldnt do but can do now

cross both of my legs (both ways)
bring my knees to my chest )
I have been running a little bit (funny thing is i find my self running on my toes now thats strange ) lol

When i am running or walking fast i am not out of breath anymore.
I am eating soooooooooooo much better now and picking good choices (not couting wed night i will explain that one later)

I am moving more then use to . Most days before surgery you would find me not wanting to go outside in the heat or not wanting to go shopping. Now i am always on the go.

I was not very excited to go to a gym in the pass now i am dieing to get back into the gym today. I been out of the gym for two weeks because one i was burned and two i had two camps to attend.

So thats just a few things i wanted to share. Now you are probably going to ask about Wed night... Well wed i stopped at sonic to get a cup of ice and i saw the ice cream sign (see where this is going) . Well i gave in and ate a ice cream cone on the way to camp .......... OH it tasted sooooooooooooooo wonderful but as soon as i got to camp ....... yep i was in the bathroom . After that my stomach hurt Well thursday i basically stayed in house because my stomach still hurted from that darn ice cream. SO you probably asking WHY IN THE WORLD DID YOU EAT THAT STUFF>............. Well i am normal just like you are. And i am still learning how to eat RIGHT and make right choices. I knew better to not eat that but i let my mental part of me give in. That's something i will deal with the rest of my life . Would i try to eat ice cream again ............ i don't know but i sure don't want that pain again so i probably wont. But i am just showing you one example just because i had the surgery its not the easy way out. I still have to work my stomach right and i have to feed it good choices. But for 31 years i have fought fried foods, starches etc so its a challenge i will have to face on a daily basis.

Well off to get ready to go to the gym WOHOOO


PS Steve if you are reading this ......................... i am going to hide lolol I know LESSON LEARNED on ice cream lol guess i should of called before i ate it lolol for some pointers lol

Good morning

I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying life. I am doing well. A few updates

1. Bailey starts summer school tomorrow. He passed 1st grade with flying colors but we still have to work hard to get him threw his next level.

2. Karley is pure girly girl as always. She has matured so much since school got out. She starts girls scouts camp tomorrow i am so excited i can't wait. I believe a child should be in some sorta of social activity in their life. I don't care for sports but if my kids every want to do sports then they can . I will support them in everything they want to do in life.

3. Bailey starts scout camp tomorrow night too .(see where this is going lol)

4. I am the craft director for cub scouts camp all week .

5. We will be starting our community activities on wed. This is a great program and very cheap for a summer fun . We go every year and hit up the library and park all in one day .

6. I bought my FIRST full outfit yesterday (SIZE 18) WOHOOOO (i will post pictures soon .

7. We got a treat last week the kids dad passed threw down .

8 I paid for my OH conference in Dallas for Sept I cant wait. What is this you ask ? I go to a site called obesityhelp.com with a bunch of people like me who had the surgery . THEY ARE AWESOME FOLKS. Its like a meeting , educational , fun social time weekend.

9 I took more test this week passed school bus but still missing the other test by one to two questions. You have to have a 80 to pass i keep getting 76-79 % instead. So i am going back tomorrow and only taking air brakes. I AM going to pass this test or else.

10 I am going to be praying hard for another job doing TAXES..........yeah i know i am nuts but i have a awesome friend (my tax lady and family friend) who is a manager at HR Block and i think i might could do this . They do train ya and it starts in august. SO i am thinking about doing this .

Things in life just crack me up sometimes

I am on facebook and they do quiz's well here was one i had to take and this is the person the quiz says i am . (this is my favorite movie of all times)

Juliet completed the quiz "Which Female Grease Character Are You?" with the result Sandy.
Sweet, wholesome, naive, and cute, you are Sandra Dee indeed. You are sweet and caring, but have a small rebellious streak as well. You wear your heart on your sleeve, are beautiful, pure, and hopelessly devoted to to your man..
