Late Night Love

So, it's kinda late for me to be doing this, but whatever. It's been a very busy Friday for me. After getting the girls off to school, I came home and did some housework/laundry. Then shortly before lunch Myles and I went to Nanas' house to help her with some stuff. Then it was time to hurry back home and plant the sunflower seeds, I shouldn't have planted them in mid-day like that, but I wanted to do it before the girls got home and wanted to "help" so I kinda had to. But anyways, so I transplanted Paiges' sunflower into a bigger pot and I also planted sunflower seeds in like six or seven other pots. After picking up the girls, we changed and got ready to attend the Relay for Life event that was happening at Indian Summer Farms with Nana. We got to meet Sheriff Grady Judd, he's such a nice man - we've had the pleasure of meeting him before. Then, we did some shopping, I got a new breast cancer shirt that reads "Buck Cancer - Save the Racks" and yes, there's a deer on it - hence, "racks." Also, we joined all the participants in some walking, eating, and we watched some really cute dancers dressed as dalmatians doing a dance to Cruella De Ville. They were just adorable! Then we sat for a few and enjoyed some Rita's Ice, it was so refreshing. Thankfully, the rain stayed away for the most part while we were there. It sprinkled a bit at the start of it but it didn't last long or return. The kids and I didn't return home until about 8:30 and now they are both just passed completely out. It's so funny how they go be running strong all day and then BAM! They're out. It really was a great day though. And I apologize if this blog seems a little out of whack, but I'm trying to hurry, so deal with it. Anyways, here's a few pictures from today. Enjoy. And goodnight.

Yesterday I picked up almost 100 photos from Walgreens for the Girls Scouts scrapbook that I want to make Paige. But now that I have everything I need I don't want to do it. It always seems like it's going to be a pain in the butt to do a themed scrapbook, but it's actually not. Once I get started it doesn't take long for me to finish because I will keep at it until I'm done. It's just so overwhelming because I have so much stuff to choose from for the book itself, stickers, stamps, stencils, cutouts, you name and I bet I have it. Which is a good thing, it just makes for a lot of options. I was also able to update some picture frames around the house since I printed so many. But there was a good sale going on, so it was pretty cheap actually. And who doesn't love cheap? 

Flower Power

I am so proud! The rose bulb that I planted is really starting to come up! Which of course makes me super excited because, just like with the sunflowers, it was basically just a seed and now it's getting so big! I love it!

Also, this morning when the kids and I were heading out the door for school, Brooke noticed that I sunflower had lost its petals and she was upset about it. I told her it would come back though, which made her happy again.

Our second sunflower is getting ready to present us with its first bloom, but the other flowers in the garden don't seem to be doing as well. It's kind of hard to tell really. We all know I'm no expert in the area of gardening. I am very proud of what we have accomplished thus far though. So are the kids, especially Brooke. She's such a flower child.

Also, here is a pic of the sunflowers I am helping Paige grow.

Paige is very proud.

Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

I remember as a child saying that there was a tiger in my belly when I was hungry. You could hear him roar! I think my mom initiated the whole thing and it just stuck with me. Well, earlier today I heard my sons' belly rumble, so I naturally asked him if he was hungry. He told me no. I went on to say that I heard the tiger in his belly roar because it was hungry and then I said he needed to feed the tiger before it got angry. Oh my goodness, the look on his little face was just too much! He started to freak out! He was yelling at me telling me that there was not a tiger in his belly because it would eat him. It was seriously so hard not to laugh, he was dead serious! So of course I told him it was a nice tiger and most certainly would not be eating him. After some more reassurance from yours truly he calmed down. And finally ate. But it was seriously adorable! I didn't expect to have him react the way he did, it never bothered the girls when I said it to them. Oh well. No harm, no foul, right?

No love

Most people don't really like to admit that they are an emotional person. Well, I am. And I don't mind everyone knowing, it's nothing for me to be ashamed of. It's just how I am. Take it or leave it, doesn't make a difference to me. It's hard for me not to "wear my heart on my sleeve" as some people say. I hate fighting and arguing with people. I hate conflict. Can't stand it. Every single little thing you say to me, if it hurts me, I will never forget it. It will literally eat at me forever pretty much. It sucks. I hate when someone is mad or pissed or whatever at me. It hurts me to know that I have upset someone. It happens though. No one is perfect but I never intentionally set out to hurt anyone. And if you think or see it differently than that's your issue not mine. Some people might not like the fact that I post certain shit online for everyone to see and by me doing just that, they think that I'm looking for pity. Ha. I don't really think I post anything that I shouldn't or talk about shit that I shouldn't. But if I did or if I do, and it offends you, or upsets you, or flat out pisses you off.. know this, that wasn't my intention. But maybe your issue isn't the fact that I said what I said, but more along the lines of you know you are wrong or were wrong and you don't want to admit it. I don't know. But like I said, I don't think I say anything I shouldn't and I never set out to throw someone under the bus or hurt them. That's the last thing I want. Sometimes, I post something to get other peoples' perspective on the situation, and sometimes it is just because I need to vent and let it out before it eats me alive. It's really that simple. No one is looking for pity. And if you or you or you or you can't handle that then I'm sorry. But it is what it is.

Pinterest, thank you

Everyone Poops

Today seems more like a Monday than a Tuesday. Tuesdays are suppose to be "good" days unlike the typical "bad" Mondays. But today seriously sucks. It's only ten in the morning, and so far today I've already had a fight with my huni, gotten a busted lip from my son and now I'm stressing because I have no money to put gas in the car, so now I am not sure how I am going to be able to pick the girls up from school later. This sucks. WTF is wrong with you Tuesday?! What are you thinking? I thought we were friends. Guess I was wrong. 

And now my son is bouncing up and down and walking on his tippy toes in hopes of stopping the inevitable, which is just going to the bathroom. Silly boy, when will you learn? Everyone poops. Stop fighting it. So now it looks like most of my day will be spent in the bathroom trying to get you to poop. Thanks. If  you weren't so damn cute, I don't know what I would do. That cute card does wonders for you, son.

This is seriously how I feel today.

I wish it were that simple.

Mama NEEDS Android Again!

So, I must admit, I am a tad frustrated this morning. My huni buni gave me his old HTC Shift Android phone last night because I've been bitching and moaning for SO long about getting a new phone. Mind you, I have this piece of crap phone that I can't really do anything on, not even Internet really because it sucks. Seriously. I do have the Thunderbolt, but apparently I'm pretty clumsy and it's got a giant crack across the screen. Also, GTalk and the camera don't work on it anymore because of my huni putting different Roms and crap on it. So my point is this... he is a programmer, he does ALL kinds of crap to and for phones. He's looked upon like he's a "God" or something in the developer community, which is fine. He gets all kinds of phones just handed to him left and right to work on. He has the latest, greatest of everything, and I have this BUNK ASS phone. WTF! The phone I want isn't really all that great even, but it's better than what I have now which isn't even an Android phone at all. I think Mom should be able to have a bad ass phone too, right? Well, instead of him getting me a phone he gives me his old phone. Really? Is it too much to ask for a NEW phone? Fresh out of the box? No scratches. No issues. Not a hand-me-down? I don't think so. But you know what? Beggars can't be choosers. So I will take this Shift and set it up and try to get it switched over to Metro, but I think it's going to cost like $80 he said and the damn phone I wanted is only $120! If I'm going to spend $80 to get his old phone hooked up for me then what's an extra $40 for a BRAND NEW PHONE?? It's ridiculous really in my opinion. And I know I shouldn't be picky or whatever but screw that. The whole reason for me wanting a new HTC phone is for Sense and I can't have Sense on the Shift he gave me because he put Cyanogenmod on it. No offense to my huni and his friends' Rom and crap but I want HTC Sense damnit!  

So, this is me ranting this morning. I hope you enjoyed it because I know I did. What do you think? Should I just take the phone and shut my mouth? Or should I continue to bitch until I get what I want?

Lord, Have Mercy!

I thought the WHOLE purpose of Mother's Day was to celebrate Mom and all the great things that she does... so why won't my brats stop aggravating me? Good grief! I thought this was suppose to be the one sure fire day of the year that my kids are suppose to be little angels. I shouldn't have to yell, or scream, or get mad or anything like that, they should be waiting on me hand and foot. I should have been left alone this morning so that for once I could actually sleep in. Are they doing any of those things? No. Of course not. I'm still responsible for cleaning the living room which they have COMPLETELY destroyed after cleaning it once already. I still have to finish the laundry and clean the kitchen AND cook dinner for us all. And they still woke me up at the butt crack of dawn. A mother's job is never done, and that's why I say next year we protest. 

Screw Mother's Day. 
I want a Mother's Week!

Just sayin'.

The only difference between yesterday and today for me is that today I got presents. Lots of them. I love my babies and they love me. They drive me insane but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to us all!!

Who's a proud Mom? This Mom!

Yesterday, my oldest daughter Paige bridged from being a Brownie Scout to a Junior Scout! I'm so proud of her! 

She also received special recognition for being the top cookie seller of her Troop. She sold 251 boxes of cookies! Way to go, Paige! As impressive as that may sound, there were two girls yesterday who also received an award for selling over 1,000 boxes each! Now that's impressive! I don't think I could have handled that, I almost lost my mind with the 250 we sold!

Paige is on the far left and the 2 girls in green vests are the ones who sold over 1,000 boxes!

I'm such a proud Mama! I took over one hundred photos yesterday for the scrapbook I am going to make Paige! I will also be making one for our Troop. Which is fine by me of course because I love making scrapbooks! And I found a Girl Scout scrapbook on sale for $3 at Big Lots the other day! (Yay!) 

Some of the girls in her Troop

After the ceremony we took the girls out for ice cream to celebrate! It was a perfect hot and sunny day for it too! 

Best ice cream in town!

So, all in all yesterday was a great day! I'm proud of my "baby" girl. She's growing so fast!
