Can I please go back to bed?

Its the Tuesday after a long weekend... and I so just need to go back to bed.... I even went to bed early last nite as I knew i was completely exhasuted last nite... and it didnt seem to even help... I am so not a morning person...

I am learning too that my son is def. not a morning person either... Every single morning it is a fight to get him up and dressed and out the door... This morning I woke up late... (go fig) and so I made him get himself dressed this morning, normally I help his with it and then he gets his own shoes and socks on...but today I made him do it himself ( and i know what you are probably thinking... and yes its true... he's six years old... he should be getting himself dressed not mommy doing it for him... but sometimes its just easier in the mornings for me to do it than to fight with him over it... but things will be changing here in the future!) but anyway... he did get himself dressed.. which was good... and then i got sissy up and we were out the door... and it was a lot colder out than i thought it was going to be! it was beautiful yesterday... at least in the 80's and today feels like its in the 60's! I hate when it changes it like that... i need to start paying attention to the weather a little bit more! lol! so my son throws a fit as soon as he steps out side because he doesnt have his jacket on... so i get it out for him... and he gets it one... I need to figure out a way to get him to stop throwing fits... the whole jumping up and down and crying and screaming...and I am not even sure where he learned it from... or why he thinks that its going to change anything... cuz nomrally when i see him do it... he either gets sent to his room because of it... or I start doing it to him... and then he just starts laughing cuz I look ridiculous jumping up and down throwing a fit like him! lol! so anyway.. i am not really sure where I was going with that whole thought... lol. that is my normal thought process... skip from one thing to the next to the next.... and then stop, and try and figure out how I got here! lol!

The weekend was wonderful! Absolutely wonderful! Saturday, it was beautiful here... so I got a lot done... cleaned the house... cleaned the car... cleaned the yard... now I feel good about my house!

Sunday we went down to Columbus to visit my sister... and that was really a lot of fun! We went to cosi for the day... and the kids loved it, especially Peyton! We went out to dinner to our fav. restaurant down there... and mmm was it good... Sunday my sister took us all to the movies to see Indian Jones... and i was so amazed. My daughter sat thru the whole thing pretty much... she got a lil restless after she dropped her baba and it rolled 4 rows up and we couldnt find it for a lil bit... but once she got it back.. she fell right to sleep... Peyton loved the movie! He wants to be Indiana Jones now! lol!

Monday we drove home.. then went right to a picnic with my mom... let me tell you by the time i made it home... I was completely exhausted! But it was a good weekend!!!

I got our family pics yesterday! I am so so so happy!!! They turned out so wonderful! Probably the best pics we have ever taken! (course this was only the 2nd pics as a family we have ever taken but still)

This has been a crazy week... I felt so worn down...
ok its now sunday... started this on a break at work...then got busy no i didnt get to finish... and it was my plan to write somemore yesterday and friday... but too any things needed to get done and there just wasnt enuf time to do them all...
I am sitting out side right at the moment... it is so beautiful out... Sissy is still asleep (well at least not screaming at the moment) and peyton is around riding his bike and honestly... i am not sure what else.. lol..
aww.. my baby boy just came up to me out of the blue... and says... i love you mommy... aaww... thats what make the yelling and screaming... and wanting to pull everysingle string of hair out of my head worth while.. he has been in a very loving mood toward me here latel... been telling me that he loves me and has wanted to snuggle with me every nite... which is why i havent wrote hon here because honestly snuggling with my son is a lot more important that writing in this...
and with that said... i am gonna get off and get my day started... we are going to visit my sister today... so i need to get things together and kids bathed and fed and what not... should be fun!!!
I thank the Lord everysingle day for all of the things in my life... the good and the bad.. because without the bad in our lives... how would we know what is good..and be able to cherish it properly... we would just take it all for granted.....
What do you think?

Another Monday...

Its 10pm and I really should be just going to bed... Or at least doing something productive like cleaning up my house... laundry... packing my son's lunch... anything really than just sitting here typing away... But honestly, typing this and getting some of my thoughts and mind ramblings helps clear my head and in away is like therapy for me... I am always thinking.. non-stop almost of some kinda random thought or series of events... even when I have no clue where that thought comes from...
The weekend was pretty good for me and the kids... My son went to go and stay with his father for the weekend... so it was just us girls home! Which is always nice but I do miss my son on those weekends... but its nice getting a mini break from him even if just for a night... I had to work on sat-doing a purse party... so my step mom watched my daughter for me while i was gone... and she said that my daughter had a blast over there... she took all of her toys out of the big plastice bin they were in and decided that they all belonged in her playpen... so she put all of them in there... then climbed into the plastic box with her baba and her blankie... well that just wasnt right... so then she climbed up on her papi's chair and just couldnt get comfortable that way either... so Nani sat down and tryed to snuggle with her... and that just wasnt right... Finally after 2 and a half hours of doing this... she finally wore her self out and fell asleep in her playpen... of course about 15 min. before i arrived to pick her up... and of course as soon as I walked in and she heard my voice, she woke right up... :-) but she was so happy to see me...
Later that day we went up to visit my dad in the "place" and as soon as sissy seen her papi... she literally about jumped out of my arms and into his bed with him... grabbed her blankie and snuggled right up with him... that was all she needed... she missed her papi!! too cute!!!
Alright... I am ending this one short tonite... I do have more to write... but my brain is now getting sleepy... i will try and post again tomorrow night... and i have way to much to get done in a half hours time to really be on here typing nonsense... even tho it does help...
Good Night!

Mother's Day

Even though it is now a few days after mother's day... I wanted to write about how wonderful my mother's day was... I honestly think this was one of the best mother's days that I have had in a long time, and I think that is partly because of how I am finally happy with my life... finally happy period! The Lord has blessed me with so so much! And I thank Him every day for all that he has given me... especially my children... This year it seemed everyone wanted to make sure that it was a good mother's day for me... including the ex's! My step-mom went out and bought me two different little plants. Which both are wonderful... a mini palm tree and a money tree... she said she got those for me because every year they get me a hanging basket... and wanted to do something a lil different this year... My dad normally goes with her to pick out what to get me... but unfortunately he is in a rehab facility because he fell and broke his ankle :-(. My son's father got me a cute lil cookie cake that said happy mother's day on it... and also a bag of York Peppermint Patties (my favorite). My daughter's father... well this completely surprised me! He went all out... Of course this was also to include my bday gifts, since he didn’t get me anything for my birthday... But he got me a lap top (course he got my old computer to sell.. lol) and bought me a new couch and chair (which he gets at a major discount from his job... lol) but it was still really nice that he got me all of this! I wasn’t expecting any of it... and he came over and spent the day with me and my daughter and was very very sweet (which he hasn’t been towards me in a while!) so it was a good day...For dinner then, I went with my mom and step-dad and brother and my babies out to eat to Damon's which is bout a half hour min. away... which I ended up getting car sick.. lol. We got their and had a wonderful meal... Towards the end of it... my daughter was sitting on my lap and I started to smell something funky... and then I realized... she pooped... and I didn’t have a change of diapers... wonderful! I was hoping it was solid so maybe I could just get the poop out... and use the diaper enuf till we got home and I could change her.... so a few min. more go past.... and I look down... and there is a wonderful brown stain on my jean... lol.. Great... she's got diarrhea and its leaking out!!!! So I go and take her in the bathroom... grabbing all available napkins from the table first... I am praying that no one else is in the bathroom when I got... because honestly... I really haven’t a clue on what I am going to do... she's got diarrhea... and I have no wipes... no diapers... nothing!!! So we get in their... luckily there is a changing table!! (thank heavens for small miracles!) but of course there are people in there.... so I lay her down... and I look and YES!! there are paper changing pads, which are pretty much the equivalent of a large thick paper towel... but hey... it will help... so I get her cleaned up best I can... and a lil girl walks in... and is in awe of my daughter and how cute she is... so she stops and is like mommy... look how cute his baby is ... she's cute... and in the back of my mind.. all I can think about... is leave me alone!!! I need to change her... and I don’t want everyone to see exactly how I am going to accomplish the feat of diapering my child... with no diaper! So finally the child leaves... and I am alone in the bathroom!! (YEA!!)
Luckily... my daughter is wearing tights today... (another small miricle!) and I take the changing pads and fold them length wise... get some napkins, put them on top of the pads.. and get a lot of paper towels... and place - just right- in her tights... lol. my makeshift diaper!
And thank the Lord... no more diharrea for the nite... and no pee even till we got home!!!

Gotta Love Being a MOM!
