Salon La Momma and Other Things

We spent today at home, just getting some necessary things done. We did laundry, dishes and other chores.

Jadyn went to Salon La Momma. I gave her a haircut, and nail trimming. She has a simple
haircut and I often cut it myself. I'm no pro, but it usually comes out okay.
She asked to have her toenails painted, and so we did that too. She also painted my fingernails.

Tonight we went to our pediatrician's flu shot clinic. Jadyn screamed and cried this time. Last year, she didn't even whimper. You just never know how they'll react. Maybe this time she remembered what it's all about. She was excited about her shiny band-aid, and the promised candy at home. :)

Update on the couch situation - Nothing at all would get the urine smell out. So unbelievable. What is the point of an animal's urine smelling so foul? I'm glad I'm not a cat.
Anyway, the last effort is to call the manufacturer and see if there's any chance that they have matching cushions sitting around. After 4 years, probably not.

Help! Something keeps following me around! It's my backside. :) I can't seem to get away from it. I am trying though. I started a diet in August, I believe. I want to shed some of the weight that keeps jumping onto my body. I won't say how much I still want to lose. If I get there, I'll let you know. ;)
It's been going okay so far. Some days are good, some days not as good. You know how it goes.
Isn't it amazing? It's so much fun to eat all that good stuff, but not so fun when you need to lose weight. I don't like to deny myself all of the treats I want.
The good part is that I've lost about 11 pounds. Yay! I just thought I'd share, and it's one more way to keep myself accountable. Now you all know, and I'll have to keep trying.

Way to go Laura!! On the weight loss, that is!:) I started in September and then had to take a steroid for a broncial thingy and it made me so hungry that I ended it. :( I do need to lose tho, so I'm hoping to restart.
Jadyn's haircut is so cute and her smile even more so. I cut Anna's,too.
Isn't salon time fun?

You did a great job on her hair. Love her toenails too! :)

Weigh to go on your loss.
I know how hard it is. I think most of us struggle... :(
Keep going!

I'm doubly awed... by the weight loss and the haircut skills. Every time I cut the Tongginator's hair, I end up butchering it, then taking her to a professional, who ends up yelling at me. You? Did a fabulous job!

The cat urine smell on furniture. We could never get it out of ours, and ended up getting new living room set.
