I am so happy it is weird...I just feel so good that I am getting this sale stuff done, that soon we will be back in the big city. I am excited that I am decided about not ttc anymore. (why did I have that flash of thought when Brian and I were together this morning? That little insiduous thought that I am fertile right now? I doubt I am but it was nagging me)
I talked to my dad today. He is doing okay, got his bottom teeth pulled and his new dentures hurt him That sucks. He is excited though...the day he gets his new fitted ones is the same day he is going to a Beach Boys concert. He is the biggest Beach Boys fan He is also selling his trailor...I wish we were not in a financial pull right now because I would love to take over payments on it and own one! Not in the cards for now though
The signs are out for the sale...I hope it doesn't rain and ruin them!!! Lol, shouldn't have used washable marker but it is all we have in the house.
Anyhow...time to go get the kids bathed and in bed...then I have to get the finishing touches on things. I am sure I have at least one more entry in me today
I stayed up too late last night and got up too early this morning My body is screaming at me. Dave brought over some change for me so I wouldn't flouder at the sale and stayed late talking. He is so depressed and I feel for him. Joplin is a very quaint town but I am starting to realize that the people are weird. If they don't have ties to you then you are suspicious. There is none of the usual southern friendliness. Dave is feeling it big time
He did say that after work on Sunday he would like to work on my sleeve I hope that happens!!!
Noone is at my sale yet It is only 9:15, but I was hoping they would come here early. Tomorrow should be better, and hopefully today picks up...I want to sell this stuff!
Logan fell and busted his gums today Poor guy tries so hard to walk and gets hurt.He was happy to suck on a washcloth though He is such a happy chipper little guy.
I really do not understand why my post count is still going down instead of up?!? Earlier it was at 666(which is why I noticed lol) and now it says 654 Dangit.
Not a single person showed up at the yard sale today. I am not too bummed, the only reason I had it advertised as today too was the people down the street did it and sold out on a Fri. No biggie, I am really positive that tomorrow will be better.
Hehe, Arthur is in his bonding pouch sitting here with me...it is so cute to hear his little noises every now and then.
Not much else to say...Brian comes home tonight I am praying he brings home good news about the house, cause if he didn't call again I am not going to be a very happy girl. Anyway, no point in getting frustrated that he may not have called...I will just wait half an hour more then call him.
At the diary site I use I found some other friends from FOD(which I don't use anymore). Pretty neat to find them, especially this one woman. She homeschools her 3 boys and has such great perspectives on things. Then there is another girl I have gotten to know...a goth mama like me Lol...sometimes I just like the reassurance that I am not the only freak who went on to raise a family. She also homeschools her daughter, and her parenting style is very similair to mine in other regards.
I sold $200 worth of stuff I am very happy with that, especially because we are having major storms so I only had stuff out from 10 to 3. In a minute I am going to bag a bunch of stuff and it will go to charity.
We got the keys to the Tulsa house and move tomorrow! I am soo excited No more sitting alone all week! We will have game nights with the friends again! The zoo will be in my backyard! So many plusses.
I didn't take care of myself very well today. I was talking to someone when i felt my blood sugar plummet. I got stark white(they commented how the colour just drained from my face) and started shaking and getting dizzy. Fortunately they had a diabetic fanmily member and were able to pop a candy in my mouth. It took me a few minutes to be able to stand back up. How embarrassing! I got something good to eat and have been fine since then, I think I just overdid it. Funny thing...I was talking to this person about the glucometer I was selling, saying I didn't really need it because my levels only get whacked when i am pregnant.
The kids are so hyper...too much going on and the storms are keeping us mostly cooped up. I did take them outside in a downpour to jump in puddles and find some frogs(we only found one a really cute hoppy one) They love doing that unconventional stuff...makes me live better to see those thrilled smiles.
Anyway, just updating, got alot to do before tomorrow
Taken from the Sept 01 board:
'To Where You Are'
by Josh Groban
Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memory's so clear
Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
Your still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are my
And you are watching over me from up above
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are
Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me
Cause you are my
Watching me from up above
And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are .
Happy Mother's Day mom, I will always love you!
Wow...really disturbed by what I just read I hope that this doesn't backlash in a big way...honestly that person makes me want to leave this site altogether and that is sad because I treasure the majority of people here. Too bad one can change things so easily.*Trying not to dwell*
I will be without internet for an undetermined amount of time...Hopefully not too long.
Mothers day in the am...I wonder if Brian even rememebered? I don't think so..not his forte. Ah well, at least the kids will get my example to grow up with, making the most of any Holiday I can, even hallmark ones I enjoy celebrating life and that's what matters
Anyway, I am off to bed soon.Hope to be back soon.
Hmm...moving day is here, I have been up for 2 hours getting the kids breakfast and dressers moved and general readiness stuff. So why am I sitting here on the computer??? Because my husband never came home last night. He called at 9:45 and said he was starting his paperwork and would be on the road shortly. Cool. I expected him home around 11:30.11:45 rolls around and I call him again. When he answered I knew...he was still at the shop :O He said that they had gotten watching security tapes and he was really leaving now. I told him that I was quickly becoming angry and he pulled the distant crap and said he had to go.I calmed down(no, I wasn't yelling, but evil thoughts of opening his prize starwars figures[mint on mint card] were once again entering my mind}I tried calling him back to tell him to drive careful and I oved him and he had his phone off. Now I was unhappy to the point of tears.Anyway...he called me about 15 minutes later.He had checked in the rental house to see if their was a fridge(he said yes, I said no) and there wasn't. He didn't want to have to bring ours down there. So he was headed home(for real this time :roll: ) I expected him at 2:30ish. I call at 3:30 and get no answer...now I am worried that he fell asleep at the wheel and had a horrible accident. No, a few minutes later he calls...he was sleeping in the van at a rest stop...but he was doing better now and could finish the drive and get home. Call at 6:30 he is still at the rest stop, but feels really good now and will see me in 45 minutes.It is 8:20 now and he is not home and there is no answer to his phone. I am torn between worried and angry. I get horrible thoughts of his cell phone ringing in a mangled van as emsa drives him away to the hospital, or some other grim scene. ARRRR...why can he not call me?!? I am so tired of being made to feel like I am being irrational! He should have left the shop at 10 like he was supposed to and this wouldn't be happening. Now I am going to bet that when(if? ) he gets home he tells me he is really tired and needs to sleep for awhile. The move will be put off until tonight, meaning I will sit around with the kids while Brian sleeps. Oh yeah, the kids toys and movies are packed :roll:
Maybe I am nagging, maybe this behaivour and all is normal. I don't know why I worry so, I don't know why it is wrong of me to worry.
Oh yeah...Happy Mother's day.
10 after 10 and he is a few miles away. I finally got ahold of him at 9:10 and he had been sleeping in ther van. Phew...I am so glad he is safe. I am not going to be snippy with him...this is his problem, I refuse to let it be mine.
I have already managed to hurt myself moving this stuff downstairs. I know Brian will roll his eyes and say ,"you should have waited for me..." Lol...then it wouldn't get done,yk? Hehe, anyway, I have got the box spring stuck on the landing right now so he can help me unwedge that and then we can load up and go. I am really hungry, and am going to treat myself to Sonic(yay garage sale money lol) I am down to 152!!!Two more pounds and I am at goal...I am really thrilled with the way this is working out for me. I am not dieitng, i just eat more healthfully.I am excersizing and just feeling good about life in general.I think the mental aspect has just as much to do with things as the physical
I am back! Lol, 2 weeks without intenet...I was so lonely.That sounds pathetic, but it is true.
I am now on dial up until next week, and it is so freaking slow as to be unbelievable! I can't wait for my dsl to get turned on!
It is pretty late now and I am tired, but wanted to at least get an entry in here and bump off the LAST page! Lol.
I am really glad to be back in Tulsa..the energy is amazing. I feel so motivated everyday
I can't believe Mandi came home! It is great to be able to talk to her, to hear that she is eating(they were on one meal a day rations because the supplies weren't moving fast enough). It is hard though...she was raped while over there, she saw death far too close and personal, she saw devastation that I wish didn't happen. She is so much...quieter in her soul I guess is one way to put it. She wants to settle down and have a house and a queit life now...she has changed so much. Not that change is bad, just that it is sad to think of what made her change.
I really am hoping she will be able to get time off soon...I don't know how but I will get her out here someway!She needs these kids as much as they need her
I am starting to seriously plan the boys birthday party!!! The ladies here have me super inspired. I am making some invites, am doing more cake stuff than I should even think of attempting, and will make this a party to remember! I can't believe Gavin will be 3 and Logan will be 1!!! We will be grilling, and have alot of fun stuff for the kids
Yesterday was nice. We went to Brian's co-workers house for the day. A little trailor out in the country. They have 2 boys(Adam was born 3 days after Christian, and Braeden was born 7 days before Logan). They are even more starved for friends than we are! lol. The kids had a blast, then we drove for a little while and they went to sleep in the van, so we hung out and watched a movie for a bit. It was just very nice and laid back.
Trinity has a huge bump on the side of her head...Christian threw a brick at her today He didn't mean to hurt her, he didn't even know she was standing there, but I have told him a million times not to throw! Poor thing
I ran into Burlington today to check their clearance and got an adorable outfit for Trinity( a pair of handpainted capri jeans w/ butterflies and matching bangle bracelets, and a super cute summer shirt)and a visor style hat for Christian( he looks so big in it! It is an orange spiderman one ) I also got a couple scented candles for 1 dollar each(love deals!). ANyhow, off to check this flylady at the urging of mama supreme !
I have been looking into homes here in Tulsa, and am really becomeing set on the thought of getting a 5 bedroom 2 bath modular on some land. They have some amazing houses...fireplaces, jacuzzi style tubs, and nice roomy kitchens. I am not snobby enough to need a brick and mortar home,yk? I told my dad and he freaked...started talking about tornadoes. Lol...I told him what I think about that...if a tornadoe hits my house it is going to destroy it period...doesn't matter if it is a modular or not. The trailor park theory is really just because they tend to be in the country more and get hit more, not because the other homes last better. A tornadoe will suck everything up. so there
Okay, off to do some laundry!
I forgot to mention...Sam's club has cherries again!!! Yum! My conviction to not eat meat is growing again...I am struggling with what I want in a big way here.Cherries will help lol.
We went to church yesterday...I was very dissapointed when the nursery director told me I can't help out again for 3 months. She doesn't like my style, and that is okay, but I know for a fact that that rule only applies to certain people and that is just wrong.
Gavin went in his class!I went in with him at first...he was shaking.I stayed for about 15 minutes and then got him into some activities and he saw me leave and was fine!!! Far surpassed my expectations. Trinity and Christian are in the big kids class now, and had a blast! I was worried, but they hold up perfectly I am so shocked at how fast these years are flying by. When I started out at this church Trinity was 1 and Christian stayed in the service(I don't do the childcare rooms till they are at least 1) and I was newly pregnant with Gavin! So long ago!It really amazes me
Okay, really going now.
What a beautiful day! The kids woke up slightly after I did, then we woke Brian up. I got a shower after I fed them breakfast, then I got everyone dressed as Brian stumbled into awake lol. We headed out, went to the bank, the lss, walmart, and Old Navy before he went to work.I got a big round punch finally!I am so excited, it is going to make a world of difference on my pages.They also had some really neat fuzzy "paper" that I picked up...it is going to make perfect sheep and or clouds.
After Brian went to work the kids and I went with Jenn to the park. We had a picnic lunch(lol, people always think we are a home daycare...9 kids between the 2 of us, and we are only in our twenties )then went on a hike on the trails. The kids loved helping me identify tracks...we saw possum, raccoon, deer, dog, and horse prints. We saw a snake swimming, a ton of turtles, heard 2 kinds of frogs, saw dragonflies and butterflies aplenty. On the way back we noticed that there were alot more deer prints then when we headed in and they were fresh...sure enough as we stepped through the clearing to go to the van there were two deer. One doe and a young buck. The kids were almost as excited as Jenn and I
We have decided that Tuesdays will be hike days and Thursdays will be zoo days(we are both zoo friends and get in free). Wednesdays and Fridays are at my house (Wed. is art and music day, and Fri. is misc lessons) Mondays will be spent doing the weekly lessons we choose for our own kids. It is off to a grand start
I dreamt off my mom last night...it was so very real I could smell her next to me. I woke up with happy tears on my face, we had been having so much fun. The dream left me a little uneasy...I remember it too clearly, and it just didn't feel right. My dreams have almost always been disturbing to me, and I rarely remember them with the clarity I did this one.Weird.
Christian is not feeling very well. He was acting odd at the picnic...speaking with a slur, stumbling a little. We went on the hike(and I keep my kids VERY hydrated)and he complained that his belly hurt and that he couldn't see well. We turned around and came home...he fell into my bed and pretty much passed out. I am keeping an eye on him.
The stupid alarm system that is supposed to be inactive was going off all day. When I was finally able to get ahold of Brian he helped me figure out the code(the previous renter was the old piercer from Tulsa, and Brian knew him well enough to guess his alarm code! Lol, it was 420[hehe, reveal thyself, if thou knowest what that means!!! ] )
I am doing well with my quest to define my character. It is hard, but the hardest challenges are the most worthwhile. Basic Training was physically the hardest thing I have ever done, and felt so incredably rewarding when I graduated. Natural childbirth was emotionally strenuous and was THE most rewarding experience.I am striving to keep myself on my mental toes, to grow stronger each day. It feels wonderful...like a cool water after a hard run.
I love hearing the little birds chirping outside the window.(We have a nested family right above the kitchen window)
Today is Brian's day off, so of course we are jam packing it full of things we need to do. 2 days off a week would be so unbelieveable at this point!
All is well here, I have been staying nice and busy. It feels so good to stay busy...burning off the energy and the depression all in one. The zoo and state park are especially good for me, getting outside and walking/teaching the kids makes me feel wonderful
I am off to jump in the shower, hope to update later. I got my dsl FINALLY and should be able to get around better now
It has been over a month since I updated in here, but since it is still here I am going to jump back into it
We are working on getting the Joplin house sold, it is empty now for the most part, and we have a brand spanking new realtor working on showing it She is putting alot into it so I am hopeful it will sell soon! The kids are all fantastic, growing and changing every day. So, copied and pasted form my other journal site here is Friday the 25th of July
Today we went to the homeschool resale store that a freind told me about. Yay!!!They have so much more than the one in Joplin did, and if I ever decide to use a comprehensive curriculum I can save alot of money here. I ended up buying an abeka kindergarten craft book and an animal bingo type game.The kids loved the bingo game! The crafts will be wonderful, it includes the cutouts as well, so it is a bit easier to plan than some of the directions only type books I already have.
After that we went to the waterplayground by the zoo for a couple hours. It was so hot and the water kept the kids cool enough to run They had a blast playing with Tonya's 5 daughters. I am extremely pleased with their social skills and playground etiquette...Christian used to be a little rough without being malicious, but he has calmed down immensely. Trinity used to pester older kids but now she will say hi and if they ignore her she leaves them alone. My heart swells to see them use life skills, to see them grow so much.
The realtor from Tulsa called with some land prospects. One sounds really amazing, 30 acres near Oolagah Lake. I think after Brian gets home we may take a drive to see how far that is, and if the property is developed at all.30 acres :O Lol, that would be so cool!
What is wrong with me today??? I am so tired it is unreal. I am going to a birthday party later with the kids and am really nervous about 1) driving there, and 2) praying the kids will be okay. I know they will, but I hate to think they would act out in the company of friends,yk?
Jenn is home. She called this am and acted like nothing happened. I can't understand taking off on a drinking binge when your 5 kids are at home and you are 3 months pregnant. I hope she snaps out of it soon.
ANyhow, off to build some block houses with the kids
:oops: :oops: :oops: I can't believe it. I went to Jared's birthday party. Got all the kids ready, drove out there, get inside. As Steph is introducing me to everyone I feel a gush of wetness on my shirt. I was confused until I look down and see....major leakage!!! I never leak through! I was/still am sooooo mortified that this had to happen then. OMG. I am kinda laughing about it but to tell the truth I felt like crying.What a horrid first impression
Steph looks wonderful. Very radient in this last stage Her boys are even cuter in person than they are in photos! Amazing, but true.
My brother called today. He is going to be driving to Cali for his new duty station starting tomorrow and will be stopping in to see us We are not very close...I was 16 he was 14 when our parents divorced and we each went to a different home. To tell the truth he hurt my mom very badly with the way he treated her, until the last couple months of her life. He was there for her, even there when she actually passed and I respect him alot more for coming around and making her happy when she was at such a painful point.So anyways, he is back from Japan and I told the kids he is coming tomorrow. They are really excited I am going to go to the grocery store tonight after Brian gets home and pick up some goodies...if there is anyone who loves sweets and treats like I do it is my brother(I can still majorly outeat him )
Brian took some paperwork into the home place today...I can't believe we are actually doing this thing! I will be so ecstatic to move into our new place, it is going to be amazing to live in a home noone else has ever lived in before.Lol, I get a bit giddy thinking about it!
There is a busted pipe in the basement and it is making the outlet wet where the dryer is plugged in so I can't do laundry at all I am going to the laundramat tomorrow to do all that I have, and hopefully a repairman will be out soon. Gotta do the whole contacting the landlord thing...bah.I do not like renting.
Overall I am doing well, I love writing all this mundane stuff in a journal, it makes me feel a bit more connected to this world. Sometimes I feel as though I am drifiting and that it escapes me far too quickly.
Okay, I slacked again big time. I am going to start keeping this journal like I was before.
Here is a recap of last night.
Last night Brian and I were hanging out talking when I heard loud voices, so i grabbed a sweatshirt and looked out the screened in front porch. There was an older man(40ish?) standing in the street in front of my house backing up as two younger guys(early 20's or late teens?) advanced on him shouting,"I gotta gun, watcha gonna do now! I'll knock you the f out, whatcha gonna run your mouth some more?" The older man said he wasn't scared but continued to try to move away. I immediatly called 911 and saw the first punch get thrown. I do not handle violence well at all and I was shaking that I could see this. I could hear them hitting the guy...ugg, i am shaking again just thinking about how horrid it was. Then the kids took off running down the sidestreet next to my house. The cop cars drove past a few minutes later and the dispatcher told me to go out and talk to them. They asked where the victim was and Brian showed them the house...the guy had collapsed on the porch and was convulsing. He swallowed his teeth The ambulance arrived then. The cops took my statement and Brian's and then they went looking for the two guys. They found them at a gang house a block away.Bri and I took turns going to id the two guys(who had already changed their bloody shirts). The poor man...they said he is in critical condition(they kicked him in the head a lot). The police had us write sworn statements and then said if the victim dies we will need to go to trial as winesses.I can't even believe it. Then, while slowpoke Brian wrote his statement I was talking to the cop...he said the gang is the same one that murdered a guy a couple weeks ago in my neighborhood. Okay, I don't have tv so I don't see the news...I just id'ed two gangbangers and they know who it was. I wouldn't change it...what they did was wrong, but I must admit I am not comfortable living here. I feel bad...the kids want to play out back and I won't let them. So...please pray that our house sells quickly so we can get out of here...this neighborhood sucks!Sorry if it is jumbled, I am still worked up over this.
No drama today! Woohoo...I am really glad there doesn't seem to have been any reciprocation for last night. I am still going to keep my guard up of course, but I am alot more at ease than I was.
I talked to Nana and my father today. Lol...courtesy calls..they pretend to ask about how me and the kids are then go into spiels about themselves before I can answer. If I don't call I get the "You are neglecting family duties"lecture.Blah blah, not alot new from either of them. They both told me why Mandi should move by them when she gets out of the service(which isn't even for a couple years anyway) and then got somewhat pissy when I said she is a grown up and should move wherever she will be happiest. They said she needs family to be happy. ROFL. Yeah right.
The kids had a good day. We watched Barbie Swan Lake for the umpteenth time, then played trains for a bit. I read all the library books to them twice. We talked about why we need to love ourselves(followed from the Poppleton the pig book). They coloured a bit, Trinity made a bunch of fun drawings for the boys to colour.
Tomorrow we are going to Joplin, then having company for a game night I am really looking forward to meeting Christine and Brad, and having Toy and De'An over is always fun. Lots of food and silly games like outburst and Madgab.
So much drama lately . It is kinda frustrating to sit back and see the same old crew start trouble then blame yet another person for it. Herd mentality at it's finest :roll: Hopefully it stops soon, people seem more aware this time and the tension is growing.
Jenn's drama...gosh, don't even want to write about that.
Thank God for the stability he has given me. I am glad that (minus last night) the drama is outside trying to get in. I love my boring life, my daily routine.
Sunday: We woke up, I got all the kids and myself dressed and ready on time, but it was too much for Brian to get ready himself I guess lol. We didn't make it to church on time. He changed the catbox though???lol. So we headed up to Joplin, got some stuff taken care of at the house.He stopped in the Joplin shop to get some things for the Tulsa studio and ended up talking for another hour.He is the most chatty thing! Then we went to Sam's club and got some kid's books,avacados, and some cdr's.The kid's were thrilled about the new books and read them nicely the whole way home. When we got back to Tulsa we went to Mohawk park and the kids played on the playground for a little over an hour. Off to the house then,expecting the kids to fall asleep. Yeah...didn't happen.Then De'An called and said Brad and Christine weren't coming, but her sister was and so were the kids. Brian loaded the kids in the van to take them for a drive to help them fall asleep before other kids got here and it was too much excitement. Unfortunately the kids saw De and Jennifer and the kids before the left so they stayed awake. When they got back the kids all played together for awhile. Finally Brian left to go pick up Toy for De and took two of the boys with him. They fell right asleep. Trinity kept playing with Lexus, they had such girly fun.Logan finally nursed to sleep, so it wasn't too bad with only the 4 kids still awake.Jennifer left around midnight and we started playing games shortly after that. Amazingly the guys won at Outburst rofl. It was great fun though, lots of sidetracked conversation. We ended up staying awake until 3 am!!! I was(and am) so tired this morning. It was worth it though.
I tested this morning.BFN. I kinda knew it would be but it was worth a try. I am dissapointed but okay. It is better this way...I have to constantly remind myself that God knows better than I what makes for perfect timing.
Today I am focusing on getting the bedding all washed. Blah...I hate washing bedding.Making bunk beds sucks lol. Soon, so soon , and we will have the new house. That sustains me for now
12:23 am and I am awake. Hmm...not good. My throat is swollen and my head is swimmy and I can't get comfortable.There is a gorgeous storm going through...big fat heavy raindrops and delicious lightning flashing. I wish i could curl up in a blanket on the porch and sleep..too cold though
I caught myself running my fingers through my hair today and realized I do alot of things that are really comforting. I just don't care about being neat and put together...and I love that. I love the punk/rockabilly part of me. The punk side is a little messy, a little disorganized. The rockabilly part is hairpins and nylons, big pretty hair and makeup(not literal). It is just kinda neat to feel like a broken mirror with lots of people's reflections showing...but they are all me.Yeah...bedtime
We went to Best Buy this morning before he went to work. Matrix Reloaded came out and he has been as a child at Christmas waiting for it. We also got The Nightmare Before Christmas and I actually *gasp* allowed the kids to watch a pg movie. They love it, and I made it very clear it was all make believe and fun.(Noone got scared too, which is good because if his movie choice scared them he would not have heard the end of it)
We went to the playground at Mohawk park. I was going to take them to the zoo but there were 15!!!buses! Lol, So we played then went home for lunch. De'An called and said she wanted to go to the zoo with me so we went after 2:30 when all the school kids were gone. Big Toy even went with us. It was alot of fun, the kids had a blast of course. The Polar bear was right in front of the window swimming, having a blast. The snow owl father flew for us, the babies tried to imatate him The otter was out(haven't seen much of him this year). There is a new eyelash viper, a brilliant colour orange that looks fantastic next to the yellow one. The jaguar was languid by the window and we all got some good Ohh's at the sight of him. There are 6 flamingo chicks...so pretty, a mottled pink with grey mixed in. Sneezy and Gunda(elephants) bred this week and we are in the 2ww to see if she is pregnant(lol, I assume it will be a 2ww...maybe not?) Anyhow, it will be so great if she got pregnant! I will love the learning oppurtunity her 2 year pregnancy would bring.
Came home and cleaned while talking to jenn. The social worker is making another home visit tomorrow and she is frantic.I don't know if that means he is not going to drop the case or what...*sighs*
Toy and De are coming over after Brian gets off work...so i am going to go get some stuff put away.
Logan is so funny, he is playing hide and seek or tag games.Lol...he likes to have us hide, then he figures out where we are and charges us full force. He is also being extremely clingy today and it is making me a bit crazy. Ack...I know it will help him though so I am indulging him.
Toy and de were here till 1 last night. I am getting so tired from these late nights. We did have fun.We looked at flowgo and a few others and had a good laugh.Brian and Toy watched some of matrix reloaded.
Church tonight. The kids are excited and I always enjoy going. I am going to try to get there a little earlier than usual...makes it easier to get the kids in through the masses
I didn't get to church last night. My throat swelled shut on me.:( I can hardly talk still today.
Toy and De came over again last night. We just hung out for a little while, the guys had fun playing some video games.
Today we went to Target and got new toothbrushes for the whole family. Lol...I love new toothbrush time. The kids all picked out their own(even Logan) and I just love tossing the old ones and knowing that the new ones are better. I know, weird.
I am going to go through and get rid of some stuff again today. The clutter in this house is amazing considering we have cut down on so much stuff.
Brian and I talked alot...we are going to start ttc again when we move to the new house. I amso excited.
Thats the news for now.
I went to Biblio Mania today in the hopes of pricing some curriculums for Jenn but they weren't open. I am not too impressed with bussinesses that do not keep regular hours.Very unprofessional and not a good way to get customers. So I ran in Mervin's and saw an outfit for the boys I wanted last season. It is a 3 piece suit and origanally cost thirty dollars. It was clearanced to $2.98!!! I bought it in size 4,5,and 6 Lol...I love it it is so cute, and now Gavin and Christian have one, plus one for next year. For 1/10th of the price I got 3! I love a bargain.
So now I am home, Brian is at work. The kids just had some tasty homefries and ketchup, and rolled up turkey slices. Ewww...but they liked it. Now they are making paper plate masks. Baby Shakespeare is on. I am tired(and I didn't even eat the turkey(filled with triptavan)). I am going to go rearrange the furniture to try to make an appearance of more room somehow.
The Joplin realtor called, she wants us to come down on the house to try to get some bites. We are thinking about it.
Having guests tonight I am making a double layer chocolate and strawberry cake. I am excited, it should turn out well We will also have chips and guacamole, some queso too I think. May even end up ordering pizza
The kids are having a fun filled day. They played in the backyard for a bit, are now flying pretend airplanes around their room. I am taking them for a trail walk out at Oxley in a little while. We are having baked chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner, then they are getting a lavendar and chamomile bath then a drive in the country. Yes,lol, I am going to have them asleep for the night before people start arriving. I have so much more rearranging to do too. The kids room looks great though and I got rid of alot of toys that weren't played with much.Now I need to get my room dwindled down,
I am feeling really good lately, my body fat is dropping and I am much more active. I love that I am fitting in my small clothes again. I did some suckwalks around the house and my calfs are loving the burn! Yes, it takes effort to be fit but the end result is well worth it.
