af is such a wonderful thing I might just have to kill someone. feels like I haven't slept in days, mostly cuz I am NOT sleeping well! yesterday was a really good day, a pretty high high kind of day, today is a murderous one I was suposed to be the one napping with Brian, instead, I am up, Brian is in his crib and the butt of the house is in bed. I made plans for today cuz lately he has wanted to get out and then doesn't, so today he was acting like I was forceably dragging him across the county(s)
am about to head out, BY MYSELF...oh yeah, and I ran the ad for my Ranger, it is officially for sale starting tomorrow I loved that truck, really I did...I really hate to see it go, but since it isn't just me anymore, and we can ONLY fit two in there, it just isn't doable. he still has his focus, I really don't want to hear about it. I should just shut the tv off and head out, w/o saying anything. poor boy, would have to take care of Brian
oh wait, sounds like the poor boy just got awakened by ds, how very sad grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
way too cute...we are in bed, listening to him talk to his crib. quietly. the quiet part is not unusual for the morning, but quiet is becoming a thing of the past. every now and then you can hear him jumping in the crib, I taught him that cuz it was just tooooooooooooooo darn cute not too! so I asked Mark if he wants me to bring him in and he said SURE, so I went in and got him. was hoping to have plenty of "quality" time playing around in bed. he did for a little bit. Daddy asked him to give Mama a kiss and amazingly enough HE DID IT!!! open slobbery kisses and I started giggling, and said KISS DADDY...AND HE DID! so now all three of us are giggling and the two adults are quickly running risk of being bitten, and the tickling is on it didn't last all that long, but one thing is for sure
my baby is gone, he is a little boy now. he loves to jabber at EVERYTHING and it gets louder and louder and louder...even G-ma can hear him on the phone...he understands most of what you say...unless, of course he is being naughty. his fav word is ba. it stands for just about everything. ba-byeeeeeeeee stands for so many things: airplane (goes bye bye), Daddy coming home (WAS bye bye I guess) ball is bababababa, sheep says ba, doggies are ba altho sometimes they are DG or dada (they love the ball)
but he has a version of airplane he will say on occasion, I have heard numnum (also mumumum), he has a word for truck altho I am not sure I know which sound he is trying out for it yet, he loves to point at them. oh yeah, cows say ba too (what a riot!)...guess the local dairy that have sheep also have him confused
and for right now, he is up playing with Dad. aaaaaaawaaaaaaawaaaaaawaaaaaaaAAAAWAAAAAAWAAAAARRR RRRRAWWWWWWWRRRRRRRRRAWEARRRRRRRRR as he chases Ali around the couch.
and soon he will most likely wind down some...is getting close to nap time.
isn't life grand? mood swings, ya gotta love the upswing part!
HEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEE YOU MAY NOOOOOOOOOOT!
BRIAN YOU MANY NOT (bite the dog, assault the dog, eat the grass, pull on the dogs tail/foot, lick the doggie's food bowl, play in the doggie water, touch Daddy's puter OR mine)
NO TOUCHING, do you want to go to bed/get a swat?
AAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG BRIAN NO! NONONONONO
why is it I don't seem to have many positive conversations with my son? WHY?? WHY WHY WHY?
AND WHY do I have this INSANE urge to constantly repeat myself? ACK!
and after getting into nono's, then he cuddles with Mom for a few, gets bored and is not headed upstairs...think he is closing in on his am nap! I dread the day when he doesn't need one! I NEED him to NEED ONE! oh man but isn't he just the cutest child! we are gonna nick him screetch soon *sigh* for the most part, that is still pretty darn cute, but I can see it getting old eventually
and I have some good news....seems the many thousands we thought we were going to have to spend getting the water and ac fixed aren't going to be near as spendy as we thought...were thinking we might have to drill a new well, that'd cost over 3k, thought a new ac unit would be 4k+ and we were trying to figure out if we should waste our savings or get a loan and were also figuring no truck.....turns out that isn't the case at all! AND to top it off, turns out Mark overpaid on taxes....we still paid way too much, but hey, that totally unexpected IRS check not only made BOTH our days, I deafened Mom when I opened it (I was on the phone with her when I did )
I screeched...ah well, I had hired a sitter for some Mom time and at least I didn't show him how to REALLY scream! we were both so pleased we went out to dinner....to Applebees...glad Mark likes them, I am not at all thrilled with them anymore...you CAN'T overcook chicken that way, is nasty...they USED to have really good chick fajitas, but not anymore.....like Chiles, but Mark doesn't.....next time, we go Mexican! at least Sol Rio here has good food we BOTH like....oh yeah, so does Jakers but they are soooooooooooooooooo spendy...went to Remo's on Sat and that was pretty spendy as well, but that was our night out and we hadn't splurged like that in ages....
so all in all, we have had a really good last few days! who knows, maybe I will get some soon
oh yeah, and looks like we are headed to MT this weekend...Mark's Dad is in the hospital...he has cancer and his body didn't react well to the chemo AT ALL...he is recovering slowly, but doing better and the cancer is still in the beginning stages...I said we might go on condition of both Mom and Dad, but Mark announced yesterday we were GOING...so I said I would call Mom tonight and we will go from there...she just sent us a positive email yesterday saying Dad was doing better, so we most likely WILL go...oh fun, another road trip
but hey! Mom and I can take the boy and go SHOPPING, and Dad and G-pa can sit and yak and nap.......works for me! AND SIDES, I am SURE Mom needs a break
truely tho, I don't want to overdo it with G-pa and Brian.....we will see how it all goes...and we need to find a dogsitter for the girls.....there is a kennel here I think we can leave them for the weekend...will ahve to see
ok, I am off...need to go play with the boy...oh my but he is growing up so fast...and honestly, it is pretty fun to watch!
and NOW, he is in bed with a swat or two...lil bugger was BACK in the kennel AGAIN! AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGG
patting her bowl with his paci, and that is why I know where he is! I AM SITTING RIGHT HERE!!!!! takes him like 1.5 secs to run in there and get into trouble, I had just tickled him! WHAT IS IT WITH THE KENNELS???
Ali is hungary enough she was still in there...hmmmmmm, that is rather rare....he was sitting on her too....*sigh* ah well, he is asleep....I should sew something!
now I have that song going thru my head "bad boys bad boys!" I have this mental picture..that and Brian woke up in a rather good mood...talkative as ever and being a good.......er, mostly good boy...which is subject to change I am sure
guess we are headed to MT this weekend....Mark's Dad has cancer and is having a rather difficult time dealing with the after effects of ONE chemo dose...I am not sure what to think of the whole thing...to be honest I don't really get that this is the end (and no, I am no psychic, just get the occasional odd feeling *tries not to break into the "feelings" song*)
am feeling downright weird too...very tired, (very) and can't seem to catch up on my sleep, even tho in theory I should be fine...guess I am not getting enough excersise (like chasing my lil man isn't enough)...if I hadn't taken the test, then had af show up, be weird AGAIN, I would swear I was preg, but alas, no...temps are still down...still not charting, not gonna sweat it this time around.....just watching for a temp spike
oh yeah, and got some good last night...not great, but good...was playing around (non sexual) and being silly and amazingly enough it did the trick...he said he loves it when I was that silly...no details, I am NOT going to embarrass my self! (no Kym, not even YOU! :rotf: my lil secret!)
so anyway, I am sitting here, listening to Brian probably empty the pan drawers out thinking I should head upstairs...*sigh*
ah well, it was good while it lasted! "BRIAN!!! NONO"
I have this mental image I can't dispell....I saw this black and white old old file clip one time with a woman with pasties on and the pasties had tassles on them....and she was swinging the tassles in opposing circles...I thought she was VERY talented
any chance this is your "talent"??? hmmmmmm? did I mention my mental pic?
here is to the many varieties of "talents" we all have
