    Well, the sun was shinning for a bit. I wish it was longer! I did get outside and re-pot some flowers. I got my strawberries today and now I am starting to rethink the idea of growing somthing like this. I haven't dealt with flowers via the mail and they come in a bundle and they just look like more roots than anything. I did plant about twelve but that leaves MANY more...instructions say they can be kept in a cool place like the fridge or garage for a few more weeks or until I want to plant some more. The weather just doesn't seem right....too chilly but they take several weeks before the roots take hold so by then weather might improve. Anyway, we shall see. My green house plants have sprouted...only took a week. I am very impressed. I think I might do a few more flowers that way. I have cleaned this house and now I need to get myself and Da'rel presentable

    Well, I had all kinds of things to say but my mind has went blank. Must be that tub & tile cleaner I inhaled! LOL! I have cleaned floors,tub,dishes,clothes....I am tired!! The weather is half sunny half cloudy skies and some wind. Sure hope my strawberries survive!! I think I am going to visit my mom tomorrow. She lives about 45 mins away. I am tired of sitting home so, after I drop DJ off at school will go see her. Going to give her some of my strawberries....I don't need 50 plants! LOL!! Baby is napping and all I need to do is shower and I can relax the rest of the day

    Oh, I feel so guilty now!! I decided to switch Da'rel from his doctor to our family doctor. It's just easier that all of us see the same doc. When we lived closer it was fine but now I have changed my mind. Anyway, his doctor called to let me know he was sending out Da'rel's medical file and to find out if I was leaving due to bad care...Of course it wasn't! Gosh, just to hear him say that made me feel like crap! I said NO! He did give Da'rel awesome care and made me feel like the best parent ever....However, the other two docs in his office are JERKS! LOL! I love our family doc and she knows all of us even, the baby I do feel good that we have had such great medical care. Anyway, I just feel bad....like I am taking away business and that his practice will fall! LOL! I am sure it's not THAT bad ... I just don't like having those kinds of conversations.

    Dang I am SLOW! Man, all I have to say about this journal squabble is if you don't like what someone is writting like *K* said before DON'T read it....continue on to another journal or stop reading alltogether. I don't understand some women....I don't know everyone here but I respect them and would never pm them about what they are writting.

    Anyway, on to my day. Visit with my mom and sister was great. Baby was so good. He had lots of things at mom's to keep him busy. The dog and cat were his toys

    My mom's husband has a niece who had a baby back about 2 1/2 months ago. This gal is a recovering drug addict who seemed to get herself together while she was elprego but now has gone down hill. Her poor baby is just so sweet and pretty. The biggest & brightest blue eyes I have seen. Well, this young mother is NOT ready to have a child. She wouldn't give her up for adoption because she was adopted. I am telling you ....this girl will pawn her 2 1/2 month old baby off on anyone. The mother I will call *M* is back to her old ways. She looks like she is back on drugs. She looks like she is dying. You can see all the bones in her face! After the baby was born *M* needed day surgery for some small problem that she milked for a week in the hospital....they finally kickded her out. Meanwhile my mom is taking care of a seven day old baby all day(for a week) and then the baby's grandma would take her for the night...my mom called me and said *M* hasn't even called to check on her baby since she's been in the hospital....several days by then.....when *M* finally got KICKED out of the hospital instead of coming home to see, hold and love her baby she went to a friends house and stayed. She didn't actually see her baby for two weeks and this baby was BRAND NEW!

    I couldn't believe it! I couldn't! I know for me I wouldn't let my boys out of my sight and if I was in the hospital I would have my DH or mom bring them to me daily!

    So, speed ahead to 2 1/2 months (today) and the baby has been battling...get this....SCABIES!!! The grandma is saying it's from *M's* boyfriend who she's no longer with but yet the baby keeps getting this over and over(second time in a month she's gotten this)....the baby, who I saw today, is so tiny and innocent and nobody is even taking good care of her. I wanted to cry. Then again I was trying to keep Da'rel away so he wouldn't catch anything from her. I guess her head is where she is infected. HOW?? How on earth can a small baby get that and WHY isn't *M* taking care of her!!!????? My mom doesn't think she will have the baby much longer. All of my mom's in-laws are up there in age and no one wants a baby. How sad!

    I was day dreaming on the way home....I would LOVE to take care of her...give her all the love'n' and attention she needs and deserves. I wonder if DH would ever let me?? Probably NOT!

    I just keep praying and praying for this little one.

    Ha, it's been AGES since I have wrote in my journal. I had a post yesterday then deleted it. I haven't been in the mood to write.

    Easter was good. After church I hid some plastic eggs in the back yard...I filled them with candy and $$. Da'rel had his basket and grabbed the eggs and put them in there with out any help from us...I guess he just knew or he was watching DJ What sweet heart! After that we took off to some friends house. It's brand *** new! VERY, very beautiful. My only problem was they homes are spaced so closely you can fart and the whole dang block can hear you! LOL!! I had an ok time. I just seemed on edge and somewhat crabby. I have known most of these people for almost 7 years. One gal was really getting on my nerves. She's just a year or two younger than me and made some commet about she could NEVER have kids at our young age....I am thinking cuz no one wants to hump you! LOL! No, I just said that I wouldn't change having my boys for a thing....you see how different you life is with kids....I see how fun and exciting life is through their eyes...anyway, normally I am very talkative and what not but that day I found a chair and sat basically the entire time. We are the only ones out of those friends who have kids....and all the women have careers or degrees and I am the only one who sah and I really didn't have anything to say. I felt so out of place. I am watching everyone talking about their jobs and what not and I am playing with the kids. I felt so left out I keep getting this impression from other gals who don't sah or even have kids that what I do is a piece of cake....they (even with out kids) can clean their house in one hour, cook a meal from scratch all this with even traveling across the state for a quick business meeting and back home before 5pm.....This is what this gal was saying and I wanted to puke. I bet she gets the worst ms and her baby is up all hours of the night the first three years of it's life! LOL! I wanted to choke the **** out of her!! Seems easy when your single but add two kids and dinner, bath and homework time the house can get messy, loud and crazy in a matter of minutes. She'll see one day.

    Anyway, DJ had a great report card yesterday. I am still wondering when he is going to be tested for the TAG program. When the school year was going to end in May I was told the paper work wouldn't be in, in time for the tests now, that the school year will end in mid June I am hoping the school will get to it.

    Da'rel, is watching Blues Clues. We are going to run to town and see about getting some summer clothes for the boys. I haven't had much luck with sales. I know Target will have some cute things for Da'rel and will check out Old Navy....I haven't been liking that place. They changed the lay out and there hasn't been any sales racks! Off to start the day!


    Below are Easter Pics I had taken of the boys....I LOVE Them!!! They look so much like their dad it's unreal....not as dark as him though...I keep telling DH...see how beautiful our childen are we need to have ONE more! LOL!! Fat chance!

    DJ-6yrs & Da'rel-1 1/2yrs.

    So, I got this idea to have someone put together DH's new desk that has been sitting in our entry way for over two weeks. DH is away on business and last night they came over and did it. It looks so great! My only problem was after everyone left I reconnected the computer and printers and all that jazz accept the DSL modem wouldn't come back on....so, I was waiting and looked over and there was this haze of smoke coming from the DSL modem...I about **** my pants. I turned it off. The house reeked of burnt plastic for hours. I called and hopefully a new one will be here in two days I have skills and managed to hook the computer up on dial up while we wait. I was proud of myself. So, today I go and pick up things for the desk...cd rack, pencil holder and I get him some paper clips and file folders and even though I am not on his companies payroll. I file all of DH's work cc statements and travel expense reports. I sure hope he likes this. I did it as his anniversary gift. Sunday we celebrate 7years! Yahoo! At this point I could careless if I get anything. I have been cleaning and cleaning the last two days....his old desk was a mess of crap that I had to sort through. I think I have gotten it done.


    So, as I was doing this cleaning of the desk I go into my room and notice that I am getting dizzy the room is moving and my dresser is shaking...I think... EARTHQUAKE....and I hear a rumble and a bang and I say No, it's probably the trains....there is train tracks only a few blocks from here. Da'rel was in the kitchen door way...He was eating and watching tv from his highchair...he called for me in a funny way and I check on him and he's fine. I see the tv to see if there is breaking news...nothing..so I think it's all in my mind...My mom calls about 15mins later to ask if I felt the quake which was centered about a mile away. I was still feeling nauseous....I thought it was the viatmins I have been taking....Too strange. I have been in three quakes before and one was 6.9 the other was 5.0 and they shook like mad crazy but thankfully everyone was fine. I always am thankful nothing serious happens here unlike the ones in California or other countries. We are lucky. I hope the 'big one' never hits.

    Anyway, I am tired and want to get a nice hot shower in before bed

    So, DH came home on Friday to his desk put together and he loved it! I was happy. I figured he would like it but you never know. I though I would go get my hair done on Saturday...my anniverary gift...so, I tell the stylist guy that I want realistic highlights....and I end up with BLONDE highlights...my hair is DARK brown. The cut was awesome. Now, I have to decide on if I want to have my hair redyed. I want to but then again...even if I didn't ask for the blonde it still looks good. I like it one minute then hate it the next. I think it's the fact that its so dramatic and that I didn't ask for this. So, having a hard time with it. I feel so wishy-washy...I went to the salon this morning to have a patch test to see if I am having any sensitivity since I thought I might have been. So far nothing. I am just not so sure I want to keep the blonde....I would much rather have carmel/auburn highlights since the color is closer to a shade of brown/red than BLONDE is.

    Well, our anniversary was on Sunday. 7years! Wow! Ofcourse we got into a fight. What's new??!! I went off to church with the boys and DH stayed home. It was my turn to watch the kids in the nursery. Shoot the guy I had helping was no help at all! I wasn't very happy about that! I get home and DH is happy and we kiss and make up. So, later that day he gives me a gift....ah, I said getting my hair 'did' was my gift but thankfully he didn't listen to me. I got a diamond/gold bracelet...very pretty. The weather was awesome so, I went outside and weeded my flowers and enjoyed the sun. Threw DJ's football around and then back inside to cook dinner. I didn't want to go out and eat. Easier to just stay home. I figured since my birthday is this Friday that my anniversary gift and B-day gift will be one in the same I don't mind....then again DH might surprise me. We were suppose to go to Aberdeen to see my twin brother and family but yesterday my brother Zach, who has been dealing with a brain tumor, slipped into a coma due to his shunt failing...this is the third shunt surgery and the second time the shunt failed damn near killing him! Mom called lastnight to say he's doing well. His last week of radiation treatment is this week but not sure if the surgery will set that back any. I hope not. I know he's looking forward to getting this over with! I pray and pray for him. I have a picture of us as kids in our underroos...I was wonder woman and Zach was the Hulk. We look so cute I plan on getting the picture blown up for him.

    Baby is napping and living room is picked up. My bedroom and kitchen could use my attention but I dont want to just yet. I will soon cuz DJ has soccer today and I don't want to leave the house a mess. The sun is out and it looks pretty clear with blue skies. I hope my flowers/vegs/fruit plants and soaking up the sun. I should get off and check out the weather Then again my allergies are KILLING me and nothing is working!
