I am throwing out the cookies. I'll let the kids have some, but right now I can't have that trigger food in the house. Yes, I had some. Ugh! Why can't I not eat them!? DD's cake is no problem to say no to, I dislike much peppermint and it is oh-so minty. But the cookies must go.

I usually let the kids go outside with a popsicle or one of those frozen ice things... till I went out to the part of the back yard where they go to eat them - yikes! They just threw the wrappers on the ground!! It's a disaster! So no more ice cream or popsicles till they get it cleaned up. None. I can't believe the mess they made!

And I've done something to my toe. I was just walking along and suddenly it felt like pins were being jabbed under my toenail!! Had to take off my sock and shoe right there! I can't put any pressure on it at all. It's finally stopped aching, but any pressure and it all stabby again. Going to the doctor today if it is not any better because with diabetes it could be a sign of many unpleasant things.

Okay, on to the good news!! I got the dog a new lead for outside (we don't have a fence) and I got the longest one they had (40 feet)... He still hasn't quite figured out that he can go past his boundaries from his last lead (25 feet), but when he does his little doggie smile is huge. Yay!

I finally got my Skinny Tea refill in from Teami! I love it, I just sip on the tea all day long, adding hot water at it gets cold (only using the one teaspoon from the morning) and it has caffeine and an appetite suppressant. Plus, toss in a cinnamon stick and it is yummy! No need for sugar or honey! And the Teami tumbler keeps it really warm. I've got some steeping right now for right after I have my coffee. I'm hoping to replace coffee with tea. Eventually.

Today is going to be a juggling act. My friend wants to come over with her kids because I got the caterpillars in the mail that we are going to watch grow into butterflies. Aunt G wants to come over because she can finally drive and she is tired of her house. Oh, and she wants to teach me how to sew with a pattern. I probably have to go to the doctor for my toe. And I need to go grocery shopping so I can have food in the house that I can eat. Right now there is not much I can eat. I think I"m going to have to cancel on my friend and see if she can wait till tomorrow. I really want to learn to sew with this pattern. Oh, and somewhere in there we are supposed to go to the pool. And I need to exercise if my toe doesn't hurt as bad. Yes, very busy day.

We have 10 caterpillars plus one that I'm not sure is going to make it. He has barely moved. But then going from steaming in the mailbox to my air conditioned house had to be hard on them. They will be painted lady butterflies. So much fun!

I got some of the cutest fabrics at the fabric store yesterday, and no, I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with them. Probably make more totes or stuff like that. I just wanted to have some extra material that I could just play with and make things, not any thing in particular. And this is how fabric stashes get so big, LOL. Unfortunately I don't have a place to put a fabric stash, so no buying any more till I use what I have.

Okay, off to the races! Let's see what I can get done today! emoticon

    My girl friend kept her "stash" in the trunk of her car so her husband wouldn't know how much she had accumulated! Then she was rear ended and the trunk popped open and all the fabric was thrown out into the road. That was 20 years ago and he still kids her. He did renovate the attic and now she has a large sewing area and cubbies for her stashes!

    I hope your caterpillars grow into Butterflies. That is quite an undertaking!

    Hope your toe is better!
