October is Here!

Today was the first time that I was able to say, "I'm getting married next month." I like the sound of that very much!

Thank you all for your condolences about Taylor. I appreciate the love and support you've sent our way. Buffy and I are doing really well. She's just crazy about that new toy. It's getting on my nerves, but she loves it. That's all that matters for now. She seemed to do well on her own at home today. Nothing seems to be dug up or chewed up. I don't know what she did all day long, but she wasn't naughty. We had a nice walk earlier this evening, and she's just decided to settle down at my feet. I'm doing well, too. I think already having another dog is helpful right now. If I were coming home to an empty house, I think it would be much harder. Buffy is hard to ignore, and she is a good companion. We are keeping each other company.

Check out Buffy's eyes! She looks like an alien, doesn't she?

You'll be happy to know that I'm not eating cereal for dinner tonight. I'm having shrimp cocktail instead. Michael doesn't eat shrimp (or beef). So, I've got to eat those things when I'm dining without him. The good thing about having eaten cereal so often lately, is that I've lost four pounds! I'm thrilled. I wonder if I can lose four more pounds in the next couple of weeks. I'll have to stock up on Frosted Mini-Wheats and Smart Start!

I love is one of my faves.

Ms. Buffy looks like a sweetheart in that photo.

Hope you enjoyed a cereal-free meal!

She's so cute. One month? WooHoo! It's going to fly by.

What a sweet girl.

Okay, Joannah. You need protein, my dear!! And a veggie and fruit at meals. :)

Sorry this is so top of mind for me right now. If you eat high protein/low carb meals with a protein snack between meals, you'll shed like crazy.

(That's 50g-70g carbs per day.)

Of course, not that you need to. :) I think you look great.

I'm finally caught up on your blog! I'm so sorry about Taylor. I can't even think about losing Brody---my heart goes out to you.
LOVE the dress---WOW! So excited for you!!!

Sorry your class stinks. :P It must be hard to be stuck with them for an entire school year. They are so lucky to have you--I hope they soon realize that and start paying attention.

I love cereal for dinner. YUM!

I'm so excited FOR you! Although I admit I can't believe October is here already, this year has FLOWN!!

Shed the Frosted Mini-wheats and you'll shed the pounds...NO SUGAR that's the key; try a cereal by Kashi called Good Friends, it's in a purple box and packs a fiber punch.

I love October and all of the holidays that are coming up.
We're having our roof started today and Cooper is outside in his kennel. I hope he doesn't bark all day!
