Those days ....

I worked on organizing the basement today.  Which means my living room looks like I haven't cleaned it in 3 weeks.

And dinner was delayed due to Fiona and Declan throwing some of it down the stairs.

Yes, you read that right.

Mama was NOT happy.

I had a cup of millet on the counter waiting for the water to boil.  I came back in the kitchen to find an empty measuring cup and a very messy staircase. 

I know that Fiona was the ringleader because Declan would have just thrown the whole thing down the stairs. 

Even after sweeping and vacuuming we will be finding millet down there for years! 

I told Fiona that that was supposed to be our dinner and she said in a small voice, "Uh oh." 

Yeah, uh oh.

Clean Eating Win!

For the last 10 days I have been doing MoveMore Fitness' Cleaning Eating Kickstart Challenge. I had my official post weigh in this morning and have lost 7 lbs! In 10 days! It was all about adjusting what I ate, not deprivation. No sugar, no dairy, no alcohol, and only whole grains.  I was blown away by how much carbs I normally eat. Even while purposely keeping carbs down and only eating whole grains, etc I still ended up with 50% of my nutrition in carbs a day! How much was I eating before?!  The challenge may be over, but I think this is something I need to keep doing.

Foxfire Museum

Yesterday we went on a field trip with our homeschool group to the Foxfire Museum in Mountain City, GA.  It was fascinating!  It's all outside with original cabins set up that you can walk through.  So much interesting information!

Family Day!

We had a lovely family today up at a little mountain lake near us.  I love these days - it's what life is all about! 

Now we are finishing our day with delivery pizza and Zootopia in the living room.  Perfect day!
