10 on Tuesday

1. Zack had his first trip to the dentist this morning. He did great and even sat still while I was getting cleaned. The hygienist asked him if he wanted bubble gum flavored tooth paste and he got really quite. He finally said chocolate. He and daddy read a book last night about going to the dentist and I think daddy suggested the chocolate flavor. No cavities and all 20 teeth. He got to pick out a toy from the toy box and I wasn't surprised on bit when he chose the harmonica.

2. I also had a cleaning and have two soft spots on my molars that need to be filled. I need to take some cleaning tips from my son :(

3. Three is the magic number. Zack has become a better listener and can be trusted a lot more since he turned three. It is like a switch clicked on his birthday. No more running away in the store or getting into things that don't belong to him, like at the dentist's office. I wouldn't have dreamed of scheduling an appointment for both of us 6 months ago.

4. Addison started standing up for 30 seconds at a time. I'll be surprised if she isn't walking in a month.

5. I have a wellness check up on 8/22/08 for work. I am nervous because my cholesterol has been too high for the past 2-3 years. I have a wellness consultant assigned to me in order to get a lower premium from my employer. I am required to check in with her every quarter to set personal goals and what steps I'm taking to meet them. I am pretty much tired of lying to the lady about exercising and eating right. I need to get the cholesterol down so I won't have to answer to her again for the next year. I already have too many things that I need to talk about in confession :) She has said that it is probably due to pregnancy b/c I have been pregnant or recently postpartum for the past few check ups. I have been stealing Cheerios from the kids in hopes that they'll help, because God knows I haven't exercised. I will also get an extra $50 bonus if I'm in the safe zone and momma needs a new lens. I usually get $250 for passing everything but cholesterol, hopefully $300 this year.

6. Today I spent my lunch hour at the library. I need to do it more often. It helps to get my fix for my shopping obsession and doesn't cost me any money.

7. Yesterday I spent lunch at the mall and scored some end of summer deals at The Limited. I was overdue though. I usually shop for the kids. I feel pretty classy today in my new outfit.

8. This weekend is the Buffett Beach Party at the lake. We are having a DJ on the beach. I need to pack a Hawaiian shirt and find a babysitter. It should be a good time.

9. Grandma Sharon and Grandpa Jim (Ryan's mom and her fiance) are moving to Tennessee this weekend. We are going to miss them, but we know they are going to love their spankin new home, golfing every day, and the milder winters. Maybe we'll have to move too. I can't wait to borrow some on the natural light coming in through the huge windows and the beautiful hardwood floors.

10. and finally my friend Tammi has officially joined the blogging world. Zack is one day older than her daughter Abi and Addison and Avri were born on the same day. We love(d) to compare pregnancies and how the kids are growing. We don't get together nearly enough and that needs to change soon!

I made it!
