Well I woke up feeling crappy. Af is here and I am so tired. I feel it in my bones. UGH was a pretty good day. I did some grocery shopping today and then we grilled out this evening. The neighbor lady came over. It was nice. But after having at least 3 extra kids here all this week has exhausted me. I think I may need to take Noah to the dr tomorrow he has had a cold for awhile and now his eyes are gooky too. Joy joy joy.
Should be a nice day tomorrow with the boys back at school. Spring break was way too long for me.
Well I did it again. Missed another day. I have been feeling like crap. I took Justin and Noah to the dr yesterday. Justin has ear infection and Noah has pink eye and cold/allergy junk. Zyrtec for Noah and drops and amox for Justin.
This af is heavy and painful. That on top of some sore throat and I am tired and *****y.
Today wasnt too bad got most of the housework done. Still have a pile of clothes on that damn table. YIKES it is going to kill me to get that taken care of and done daily.
Dave has softball game tonight so wont be home till later.
Not much going on. Same old same old.
Everyone is feeling much better. Noah still has snotty nose but his eyes are clear. Justin seems much better. I too am feeling much better. Except for bleeding like a stuffed pig. The joys of womanhood. I just cant tell you how excited I am to be a woman.
I did the last bit of my grocery shopping today. I hate living check to freaking check. We make twice as much money here than we have ever yet we still live check to check. I am torn about trying to get a job or not. It would be pointless if I had to pay a sitter and with summer coming I would need a sitter for all three. I could do weekends only but even then it would be stressfull. I know we will just have to make some sacrifices and see where we can cut some corners. Honestly its not like we are spending extra money on material things we rarely eat out and when we do its under 30 for the family. I think I will have to rethink the money we spend on food... with it being spring and summer coming I am hoping to eat more fresh fruits and veggies.
As much as I hate to say it we should find a cheaper place to live. It is going to have to be smaller. I have not even seen anything in the paper that is even for rent. Its just not a rent kind of place and yet the housing is so expensive......I have to remind myself there is a purpose and a reason. Trust and Obey........
I am thankful for the house we live in and the school the kids are in we are blessed. I am blessed that I can stay home and that Dave has a good job. I truly am I just always think of more we NEED so maybe its not really a NEED but a WANT.
Something will work out it always does.
I hate money. Thats all I can say or maybe it s the lack of it.
The boys were throwing rocks at the garage door last night and put a nice little hole in the siding. I swear sometimes they drive me insane. I know boys are boys but when does it stop. They got the picture I think and I better not see a rock in their hand again........ One thing I hate about the houses here everyone has all these rocks. My kids have always picked them up since tiny. Maybe I will have to give them some sponges to throw at the door instead.
Everyone is still coughing and Noah still has a runny ooey nose but he has been sleeping pretty well.
I have to get alot of cleaning done today. Was out shopping for food yesterday time I tackle the mess on the dining room table and time I get this kitchen floor.
Noah has done great on the potty this week. We may be closer than I think. I think he has pooped every day in there. Problem with him is he keeps stripping all his clothes off. I havent really fought with him to put them back on becouse he just takes them off again. UGH it is easier to get him to use the potty when he is naked. Wonder if anyone would notice I have a naked 2 year old running around.
I did it I got the laundry off the table. I had it all finished yesterday and started out with two small loads this morning. Then one more after Noah peed on a blanket.
I have been doing fly lady again. I hate all the annoying emails but I love the concept and when I need them I read them. I had my dishes done last night and took a shower this morning and got dressed.
Noah is throwing major 2 year old fits. Joy joy joy.
Tyler got a A on a unit test for math and a nice note sent home. He has been trying so hard to show that he is acting mature. Some times that kid is just so adorable. The other time I want to rip my hair out of my scalp one peice at at ime.
Justin has been doing great on going poop on his own. This is a major thing for him and he has done great this past week. I am very proud of him.
Noah has been trying on the potty. He has the pooping part down. Now if we could just get the peeing in the potty part down.
Dave has decided to do some exercise too. He ran (I am sure slow jog) last night. It is time we both get in shape and feel better about ourself.
Not much else going on. The weather has been so nice. That really helps ones outlook.
Took Tyler to his ball game at 8:30 this morning. It was cold. They finally lost a game. Little humbling for them since they have dominated most of the teams they have played so far.
I cleaned up the flower bed this afternoon. It was pretty dead looking. I have no green thumb so I hope we took the things out that were supposed to come out and not taken out things that were supposed to be there.
Dave mowed the yard. Trimmed the edges. I would love to be able to buy this house sometime. I would do a few things to it but to have it ours would be really nice.
I bought pull ups today instead of diapers and when the last half of diapers are gone I am not buying any more. He has been doing really good and I think its time to make a effort.
The neighbor took us out to dinner lasts night. I really enjoy her. The kids love her. She was dragging out all these things for them to play with. It was wild. I can not belive she offerd to take us out it was very nice. I will have to repay her again and have her over for dinner.
Noah fell outside and hurt his hand on the road. It has a couple nice gashes in it and right on the palm. Poor little guy.
Tyler has been fighting with his friends today. Its a up down up down thing. Poor kid. He is so passionate that he gets his feelings hurt and he doesnt understand when they are MAD lol has life to look forward to.
Oh I almost forgot I got to go to a garage sale today. I really love going to them and look forward to going. I found a little fleece blanket with Big Bird on it and a little chair with Elmo on it for Noah.
I am enjoying the weather outside and the fact we can go outside its just so hard with Noah. The house isnt fenced and he goes across the street and the river is over there. That is one thing we would do if we bough this house we would FENCE THE BACKYARD.
I am feeling pretty good. Not overwhelmed and in a downward spiral if that makes any sense.
No plans for tomorrow just Church and then if its nice maybe we will go to the park.
The boys have been outside playing most of the day. I love it when its nice outside and they can play outside without killing each other. Not much going on its too chilly for a picnic. Going to grill out some steaks later on and have Tylers little friends family over for dinner.
I need to run to the store and pick up a few things. Nothing fancy just a few steaks I had in the freezer out on the grill. Some potatoe salad and garlic bread maybe another vegtable.
The house is pretty clean so I didnt need to spend alot of time recleaning.
Noah has been pretty good with the potty today. He continues to take off his darn diaper / underwear/ clothes.
I think I will make a dessert for later so I better get going.
Dinner went well. Its nice to have a adult conversation every now and again. LOL.
The boys were so tired from all the playing outside they went to bed pretty easy. I was in bed by 11.
I have my last load of laundry in the dryer and the table is full again. I am going to get the table cleaned off. I have to mop the kitchen floor again we had the boys sitting at the pool table in the kitchen last night while they ate. Good plan they got crap everywhere.
It is a little cooler this morning but maybe it will warm up later.
I have dinner thawing in the sink. So once the beds are made and laundry finished. Then its the kitchen and pick up the living room. I want to get to the boys room sometime maybe I will get them started today.
Happy Belated Birthday Angel if you are reading this. Tried to call ya. Love ya woman. Dont feel too bad your card was the only one that I got too. My fil called me last night and said oh I am sorry we missed your birthday. LOL I was like yea it was last month. Then reminded him to send Justin his card. His is next week.
Dave is on vacation next week and I plan to get a few things done around here. We may buy the boys some bunkbeds and get that room switcharoo finished.
I need to wash these beautiful drawings off the wall sometime that is on the list to look for a product that takes off the crayon and leaves the paint on.
I have been feeling pretty good lately. Maybe its the fact that I actually talk to a few adults. The neighbor took us out to dinner the other night. I talk to her reguarly and the other new neighbor I chat with her some. I talk alot to Tylers little friends mom. She is becoming a good friend.
I am still researching some things for summer vacation. We really want to use some of the bonus money on some things around the house and to pay off a few things. So we want to do soemthing fun but not too expensive.
Lots of possibilites since we live in a area that isnt more than a days drive to a few places and states.
I have to remember to sign up the boys for free swimming lessons the town offers. To get swimming passes to the local lakes.
I have also decided it is time to start to exercise again. I am trying to get healthy and to lose some of this excess baggage that I am hauling around.
Well this became long and I need to get the living room now since Noah decided to dumb a box of Dora the Explorer cookies on it.
I forgot to add that Noah is doing great on the potty at least when he poops. I would much rather change a wet pullup than a poopy one. I just wish he would KEEP HIS CLOTHES ON!!
The joys of potty training. Whoo hoo.
I am feeling down. Like I am fat and useless. I have to get my butt in gear and lose some weight. I know its not just the weight but if the weight off my butt would go then maybe I would get the other weight off.
I just dont have any energy today. I didnt do amy house work and didnt even cook dinner. We had pizza.
Maybe tomorrow I will feel better. Dont feel much like posting. Nothing in paticular making me feel this way I just feel blah.
