I belong to a few yahoo groups and sent an email regarding something sort of politicial link about learning what candidates share your views but nothing to be controversial about...actually here is the link...take the quiz yourself and see who shares your views.
So this one person gets herself all uppity about the post...saying I am trying to start something controversial and this and that. Meanwhile, I shared it because I thought it would be informative.
Many people share different views then mine, which is perfectly fine, I was not saying vote for this one or that one just sharing what they stood for....I did get many thanks.
But this one person emailed me off the list and cc'd to the owner of the list....come on USE your D**N delete button if you do not want to read it. But to be so freaking petty..,GIVE ME A BREAK.

Aviva: Good, mommy we moved our desks today I now sit with Kyle...(said with a very big smile).
Me: That is good.
Aviva: Kyle is very cute...I like him but not as much as Jessie. (Mind you all she did was talk about Kyle and how much she likes him, she is 6 1/2 going on 25).
Me: Oh really.
Aviva: Yes, I do not want to date Kyle, cause I really really really really really really like Jessie (he is a boy from her Kindergarten class who she sat with and totally loved him). I want to marry him.
Me: You are a bit young Aviva to worry about marriage.
Aviva: But he can be my boyfriend.
Me: Oy vey.
And believe me, she is very serious when she discusses this. Kyle is her friend she decided and Jesse is her boyfriend whether he knows it or not.
Those teenage years are going to be very interesting in our household.

*It was a quiet week here...Spider did a lot of Overtime this week which will be very helpful to us. And with Spider not being home much Aviva was very good this week and very helpful....she did her homework in no time...and read three books and took 2 accelerated reader tests this week.
*I finished my book review and report with power point to and glad to turn it in. Now I have a big project to work on due by Oct. 6th for class. It was on a book written by a father...Breaking Autism Barriers: A Father's Story by Bill Davis...I recommend the book...great information in the book and not many books written by a father's perspective. Wish it was organized a bit better but worth the read.
*Went to the doctor this week and for the most part it was a good report. Bloodwork good, A1C going down...good thing...Bp 120/70 he was thrilled and Cholesterol was very good. But white blood count higher then last time...it seems to be high (about 16,000) all the time..he says it is the neurophyls (that shows signs of infection) that is the better one to be high. So, he put me on Cipro and wants me back in 3 weeks for another test, if still high off to the hematologist. Also, wants a chest x-ray since been coughing a while and doubled the nexium so twice a day now in case cough is reflux. I go back in a month. Hoping numbers are better.
*Yesterday I had mommy time, Aviva had daddy-daughter time as she calls it. They went to the pool for a couple of hours. I enjoyed the quiet and she enjoyed her time with daddy.
Thanks you Christine.

But the best news is I am down 6.6 lbs and feel great about it.
I do not miss the breads and potato. I have my sweet treats and that helps a lot.
Made some new recipes and tried healthier snacks. Tonight it is eggplant chili.

I am very thankful that I had good news from the retina specialist...he said my eyes are looking better and the swelling of the blood vessels have gone down....always nice to hear that. My blood sugars are doing much better.
I am very happy Aviva really likes school and seems very happy to go in the morning..she likes getting homework...and loves to read to me. The teacher said she is a joy to have in the class and is a wonderful reader...always nice to have some tell me that.
I am happy to say we all went shopping yesterday to Target and spent time together and today we are off to Publix....all three of us. Should be fun.
Aviva and daddy are practicing her soccer skills...she has to go Saturday to do ratings to make up the teams to start in December. She loves her pink ball.
And I must say I am enjoying the South Beach diet....I am not missing the bread, pasta, or rice...miss fruit a bit but can have that in another week with sweet pototoes so not to bad. It is working and have to stick to it...had a great week and got some great recipes for dinner this week. Found I like celery with hummus it is a filling snack.
