I can't believe it's May 18 (almost). Seriously, where does the time go? Troy has been out of town for over a week now. He doesn't get home until Friday night. It has been quite the adventure with him gone, although not as bad as I would have thought. The worst was Kristin vomitting for 3 days. That meant being up all night - which meant me being up all night. I have good parents who took my kids, as well as a SUPER friend, who took my 3 kids to church with her, along with her 6 kids! Naturally, they were angels for her.

My eyes are doing super. I had a touch-up done on my left eye almost 3 weeks ago. It has been frustrating, but I think they are finally at 20/20 - consecutively. It figures I would get every side-effect and post surgery problem.

This morning, after my run, Jake informed me that his science project was due. CRAP! I had totally forgotten about it. So, I did what any good mom would do, I searched the internet and found something we could do in 30 minutes. We did a comparison of nutrition values (sugar, fat, protein, fiber)actually consumed in a day to recommended per day. I was ASTONISHED! Did you know kids between 4-9 should only have 18 grams of sugar a day? I did a pretty normal day of food for Jake, rice krispies, apple juice, pb&j, milk, cookie, chicken, rice, green beans. Guess how much sugar? 102 grams of sugar!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that? So, I definitely learned something today. I just don't know what to do, because in 1 cup of 1% milk, there are 13 grams of can you have your kids be healthy, if they can only have 1 cup of milk a day?????? I just don't know.

We had a super fun weekend out at my Grandma's house. She turned 80. It was so fun to see cousins I hadn't seen in years, and get to know their spouses and children. Who's going on July 3?

I tried a spinning class today. My poor behind is getting used to a bicycle seat. I love cycling, but I think I will stick to the road, and not on a spinning bike.

Well, I know this post is a lot about me, but it is my blog, right?
