Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Wow! What a weekend. It was full. Friday was a busy day in general. I took Shrek in for an eval on his feet. Poor dude is pigeon toed like his Mama. Unfortunately he drags one of his feet while his toes are pointing at his other leg. He and his brother Donkey are going to have to wear some elastics on their feet to turn them out. Some smart info that the specialist shared with me. Being pigeon toed and knock kneed like that can lead to arthritis and other foot problems. Wow! Good to know now that I'm 30 and have those problems. *Sigh* I'm assuming my mother's solution of making me wear my shoes on the wrong feet when I was little did not work.
Friday the Diva learned about Doctor's and made her own doctor bag. She spent an hour taking care of Mr. Mayer and I and bandaging us up.


After Mr. Mayer and I were mended Nana Karen and Papa Brad came over to watch Shrek and Donkey and Mr. Mayer and I took Diva to the Tulsa State Fair.

That is always an adventure. We met some friends there. We all ran our legs off. I let Diva eat a very healthy dinner....followed by cake balls and fried potatoes. I rock. The people watching at the fair is entertainment alone.

The next morning we were up and at em' again. We drove to Grove and FINALLY got around to taking the dudes 1 year pictures. I'm only a month late. Not bad in my book. It was a gorgeous day. One of my best friends lives there and was gracious enough to let us come out to her house and take some pics as well. We had a great time with the Lane's and their precious little Addie. Both of the dudes are smitten with Ms. Addie and liked to pull her hair. It was another long day.
By Sunday we were all grumpy. It was definitely a day of rest. We didn't do much of anything yesterday. Just hung out around the house. Shrek has learned how to climb up the stairs to the top of the swing set in the backyard so it makes playing outside a little more difficult. He thinks he is hot stuff though. Donkey has no interest in following behind his brother. Thank goodness!

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house.
"I cleaned my room damn good."
Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious.
A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies.
We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her.
Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally to b…

Taking Back Summer

I am a professional at over scheduling and doing too much. I have really been working on this and trying to simplify my life a little. I have been focusing on meaningful relationships and moments, and taking more of a quality over quantity approach to life lately. It has been hard, but has been so worth it. Summer has been a perfect test to my efforts. Last summer I worked and when I wasn't working I had a "fun activity" scheduled. We were so scheduled and busy that we lost the "fun" part somewhere along the way. Mr. Mayer and I took a long weekend together last summer and I was so tired from our "easy summer" that I just wanted to sleep the whole time. That's not fun.

This summer we have played with our neighbors and cousins, swam and slept in. The kids get to pick two camps they can do. The boys had one in June and another one in July. #1 didn't want to do any camps other than her cheer camps she has to do, and I am not making her. We have h…
