Thank you. He’s a big baby! Lol.

Wow... big difference! :) We had a boxer that grew like that, but we had to give him away. :( He was gorgeous and a great dog, but he was just too big for our little house...
By ~April~ on Wordless Wednesdays-7 on 2/23/11

He’s part boxer. And he’s not even a year yet. His brother and his daddy were both bigger than him J dunno if he’ll grow more or not..  I love him tho.

Sweetie. I know. Me too.

Being as this is a God Loving Blog, I will keep my profanties to myself. But I will say to Anon - This American Woman Thinks You Can Kiss My Ass. You obviously have no clue ! And just for the record, I don't believe any of my non-American women friends would want you either. It's called prejudice, bigotry, and stereotyping, and in this day and age those three things are no longer tolerated, you jerk.
By Scarlett on LOL- spam comment on 2/22/11
Perfectly said!! J

hahahaha woooooowwwwww. If he spams me I'll delete it haha. Thanks for sharing!! :)
By Adam and Wendy on LOL- spam comment on 2/22/11
Haha!! You are very welcome!

Yea that idiot has been going around leaving comments all the time. I did not publish his comment on my blog.
By Oilfield Trash on LOL- spam comment on 2/22/11
I thought It was too hilarious not to share!! J

I might have to join this protest.
Good Luck with that!

You gotta hand it to this guy, he's persistent. No matter how many people call him an idiot, he just keeps on on that soapbox of his. I still say he's still an idiot, though.
By Vinny C on LOL- spam comment on 2/22/11
Yeap. He’s still an idiot!

Can't think of a better way to spend the day... My wife would disagree, though. Oh, hi. I'm Vinny & I'll be your newest stalker, by the way.
By Vinny C on day off on 2/21/11
Id rather be reading… or cleaning.  But the kids like their video games.. as long as they are happy right?! 

That is the best way to spend a day off from school.
By Oilfield Trash on day off on 2/21/11
Its hard for me to just sit still… id rather be cleaning! Lol. but its hard to do that with 2 kids messing up right after ya.

Realization Friday

Its Friday. and it won' stop snowing. seriously.. we are supposed to get some stupid amount of inches by 5pm today..  ugh

Ive come to realize:

~ That sometimes its better to just be friends… you can love them so much more when less is expected.

~ Snow really sucks.

~ Life is amazing and God is good

~ I have met two great women in my Algebra class, it always so much fun with them!!

~ I actually now look forward to go to Algebra, just because of those new friends! J

~ That I have the best family in the world!!!

~ That I have a great job, even though there are many days I don’t want to go in… I am very very very lucky to have my job. J

~ I hate snow. And balloons.  

~ That I need to seriously start writing down my realizations through out the week, because by Friday, I forget everything.

Thanks for reading my blog guys!!! Seriously if it wasn't for my great followers, I am not sure I'd want to keep doing it.. I might just for the release.. but it wouldn’t be as wonderful as it is now!!!

God Bless

LOL- spam comment

comment left on my post: 

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN Why American men should boycott American women I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
By Anonymous on Realization Friday on 2/19/11

This was a comment left on my Realization Friday Post. I thought it was hilarious. I debated on if I should publish this or not... and I figured you guys would probably get a kick out of it as much as I do. I am not going to respond to the comments because it is just ridiculous.  But you are more than welcome to :-)

Happy Tuesday Ya'll (its my monday- so I may seem a little out of it today)

I like it! :) I've been slacking on my challenge... need to get on the ball!!
By ~April~ on Love of a Whisper on 2/17/11
   Thank you- I love that you can do your challenge…I am only inspired once in awhile to write poetry.
If I tried to force it- I would completely suck at it! lol.

I never really thought about going back to see if you responded to my comments, so that's a good idea. :) I'm a fan of poetry too, so I'll be looking forward to reading those posts! Hope you have a great weekend!!
By ~April~ on Randomness on 2/17/11
I love replying to comments and love when people reply to mine.. then I know that they actually do read
The comments. But sadly with blogger- you never know if someone has replied to a comment you post
So that’s why I figured I’d do a whole post- just replying to comments J  Hope you have a great weekend
Too!  And Ps. The poetry page is set up J

Very following you!
By Mommy Gator on Project 31- Day 6 on 2/17/11
Yay!! Thank you!!!

The one I like the most, and I was reminded of it this morning is: On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other round is sinking sand. Its too long though. I really don't lilke you getting another tat, if God wanted you to have tats, he'd have given you birth marks. He made you beautiful, with lovely skin.
By Anonymous on Randomness on 2/17/11
I know a lot of people don’t like tattoos’ and its not for everyone.  When I get them, I try and make sure a-
That they can be covered up for a job or what not… but anymore I want them to be something that can
Start a converstation with… maybe be able to show someone the love of Christ J

I like the second one for your tattoo. Looking forward to reading your poems.
By The Path Traveled on Randomness on 2/17/11

Thanks. I am still up in the air about it. My fav scripture is the first one. But this is something that is forever
Ya know… I got to make sure its perfect! Lol.  The poetry page is set up J

Well, she said everything I was going to say!! :) haha! :) I do like your outfit, I'm glad your stepmom's surgery went well, and sorry VDay wasn't what you expected, but...sounds like the rest of the day was fun getting to spend time with your son's class! :)

Haha!! Thank you!!! It was a great day. J

Wow! Love it. Following you here now too. Love the look of your blog. find me at
By Mommy Head on Wordless Wednesdays-6 on 2/16/11
I believe I am following you too! J  Thank you!! J

Tell little man he has to eat all the strained carrots before he can leave the table.

Haha… I don’t think he even like them as a baby!! Lol. Now he’ll definitely put up a fight!!

Ha, ha. Cute :)
By ~April~ on Wordless Wednesdays-6 on 2/16/11
Lol. thanks. He’s a goof!

I'm glad your step mom's surgery went well! I'll definitely be praying for her. I'm sorry your Valentine's weekend wasn't the greatest... but you looked really cute in your outfit! ;)

Realization Friday

Realizaton Friday!!!

Yay!!! Its here once again… and I am looking forward to this weekend… of homework, cleaning, and spending time with my precious lil munchkins… Not sure what we will do yet, but I am really really really hoping that it will stay warm like this for at least a couple more days so I can take them outside and take the dogs for a walk!!  I am anxious for that!!

Here’s your realizations!!! Thanks for everyone who sent them in!!

I’ve Come to Realize:

~     I have to poop at the most inconvenient times.

~     I really hate going to the bathroom and will hold it for as long as possible, but I really enjoy that relief of going poop. Its euphoric!

~     That sometimes letting go maybe hard, but it maybe better than holding on

~     People are idiots.

~     Certain people just always initiate drama.

~     I am going crazy waiting for a reply.

~     That God has a great plan and will answer all prayers in time… though not always the way you want Him to

~     God is always listening. He may not answer they way you expect, but that doesn’t mean he aint listening.

Make sure you email me your realizations for next Friday!!! And check out my comment and reply post tomorrow!! J

God Bless

Project 31- Day 6

Day 6.  Jaded beauty.  Has the world's definition of beauty ever jaded you?

I had to look up the definition of Jaded.. lol.  It means exhausted, worn out, disappointed, bored. (you get the pictured.)

To answer that question. YES!!  The “world” expects women to always be beautiful. Always have their hair done perfectly, their make up done perfectly, have the most stylish clothes.. and it is exhausting to always trying to be perfect.
There are so many days where I wake up and I don’t want to get dressed. I don’t want to wear heels. I don’t want to put make up on. I don’t want to do my hair. I just want to be. But I kwow I will be looked down upon by society if I just go out looking NORMAL!!  
Sometimes thou, I really don’t care. I go out as I was and everyone can look and laugh. But ya know what. I don’t care. I am me. period. You don’t like it, don’t look. (I wish I could really have this attitude all the time.)

Beauty isn’t always what you first see when you look at a person… Its what you see after you truly look at a person. J

Love of a Whisper

Love of a Whisper

I’m in love with a whisper,
The sound of a voice,
The fluttering of my heart,
As if I ever had a choice.

The thought of you is magical,
This feeling is so rare,
Knowing you love me so,
And that you’ll always care.

How could have I missed it,
I guess I tried to hide.
Not wanting to admit my sins,
But you were still by my side.

You will always be my savior,
I am better thru your grace,
I love you Lord with all my heart,
And that is something that can never be erased.

God Bless
Overthinking Mama 


I am in the mood to write poetry today… lol. Dunno why. So one of the things I am going to do today I think is do a new tab at the top of my blog for the poetry that I write. It will have links to all the blog posts that have poetry that I have wrote. J This may take me awhile! Lol.

I am planning on getting The Traveling Notebook decorated and what not this weekend so that hopefully I can get it out by the end of the month.  I am also wanting to do a Facebook fan page for it too…  dunno when I will get to that. lol.

Another thing I was thinking about doing… is having a once a week blog post where I respond to all the comments that you all have left me thru out the week. I love reading them and I try and reply when I remember… but I dunno if you guys ever know if I reply or not. So I thought this way- you will know I did J  I will probably have that post to go on a Saturday or Sunday since I normally don’t post too much stuff on those days.  
What do you think??

I have a few things bouncing around in my head the last few days… and well I just wish either something would happen already or I would just stop thinking about it… I hate when this happens. Oh well.

I don’t really have any plans for the weekend… I am thinking about maybe possibly Friday night (if I can get a sitter) going and getting another tattoo!! I want a scripture on my wrist, so when I look down at it, I will always be able to read it… I am just not really sure which one I want… any suggestions??   I have 3 I like so far.. but still dunno.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding

And now these three remain: faith, hope, love. But the greatest of these is Love.

But a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Well those are my random thought for the day… well so far anyway… J

Have a great Thursday!!

God Bless

My weekend and Valday

I so wanted to post yesterday,  but unfortunately, I wasn’t at a computer till late and by that point, I was way to exhausted to even bother. Sorry.

My valentine’s day was… well pretty good. Different. But good. This whole weekend didn’t go exactly like I wanted it to.. but eh, I guess that is life.

Friday was girls night!! I haven’t had a girls night in over a year!!  And OMG!!!  I had such an amazing night!!!  First my sister- Katie, and my 3 friends Leisa, Amanda, and Tana all went out to Olive Garden for dinner.  It was so much fun!!!  I don’t think I have laughed that hard in a really long time!  Those girls are great. After that we then went to a lil bar up the road from me and had a few drinks… well I only had a few drinks… they had a lot of drinks. We ended up almost closing the bar!  It was a wonderful night!!  I will never forget that night!!! Thanks girls!!! 

My Valday outfit. 
Saturday well… it was all down hill.  My step mom fell walking out of a local restaurant and broke her femur bone. She ended up having surgery and had a rod put in. She is still in the hospital and still in some pain and discomfort. L    My boyfriend and I split up.  We wasn’t exactly what I wanted and the break up didn’t happen the way I would have ever wanted it to. But it did happen and it hurt.  But I will survive.  Unfortunately as great of a guy he is, and as much as I do love him, we just weren’t meant to be. But I do hope eventually, we will be able to at least be friends.
Sunday was spent cleaning my house (cleanest its been in a very long time!!), lunch with my sis and dad, shopping, dinner with my mom and family and then up to the hospital to visit with my stepmom.  Fun. Day.

My Valday Breakfast
Valentine’s Day wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I stayed positive about everything and focused on what I had and not what I didn’t.  I spent most of the day up at the hospital with a friend. He had to have surgery and I was the only one that could drive him. But it wasn’t all bad. I was able to leave and go to my son’s Valentine’s Day party at his school. He told me he didn’t want me to be there, but I went anyway and I think he was glad I was there. I had a lot of fun. I helped him pass out his cards and treats, helped some of the other kids with their stuff and especially loved watching his class interact. And of course being there when he got 4 “specially sent” valentines from friends. They could buy “special” valentines from the school and have then “sent’ to the person of choice. He said he got the most of anyone! J  AAWWW!!!   Last Friday, He spent $8 (yes $8) on hot cocoa for his friends and also his teacher!!!  He has such a sweet heart!! 
After the hospital (the surgery went good!)I then had to go grocery shopping for my dad and then I finally got to head home and relax… after I did some more laundry.  My BFF and my sister stopped over for a bit. So all in all, I really can’t complain about my day J

Realization Friday

Are you ready kids??  Its realization Friday!!!  

Thank you everyone who sent some in!!

~ I’ve come to realize that my hair is really long!

~ Sometimes, even though you try really hard to ignore something… sometimes you just can’t.

~ That it really stinks when a friend just stops talking to you for no reason at all… or at least none that you know of because they just stopped talking to you.

~ That after going to the gym, I so want to eat junk food.

~ The struggles and the down periods are just all part of life.

~ That I need to do some major house cleaning this weekend! oMg!!

~ That in my head when I say OMG… I am saying oh my gosh!! Lol.

~ That there are some people that I just don’t and some people I will never be as close to as I once was.

~ That the two chics in my class that I am friends with now.. are awesome!! I am so glad that I have made two new friend (since its hard for me to make friends) and they are awesome!!

~  I need to do some major changes in my life… mentally and physically.

~ That I don’t think I’ll have the “happily ever after” like I want… I just hope to have a “happily ever after”.

~ Ever time I plan ahead in my head and think about how something will be or is going to be, IT NEVER HAPPENS.  And I am always disappointed. L  I have the opposite of “future reading” If I see it in my head… IT wont Happen. Lol.

~ Not everyone is who you want them to be… hell most people are not who you want them to be.

I wanted to also take a minute and thank everyone!! All of my followers are great!! Thank you all for helping me through this week… Thank you for all the support and the love!!  You are the reason why I blog as much and as openly as I do.  Thank you!!!

Doing better-& Project 31- Day 5

Today I am feeling a little bit better..  a few things happened yesterday that changed my mood… I am not going to get into details but it has helped me get a better perspective on things…  So I guess we shall see what the future holds on that J

I am still unhappy with my life though… I feel so unorganized, dis-coordinated, and pretty much feel like I am not with it.  I am always tired. My house is always a mess and I am crabby more than I’d like.  I feel like there is never enough time to do anything that I want and the little time I end up having, I am so exhausted I just want to go to bed.  

I know all this will pass, it normally does. And at least my mood is better than it was on Monday and last week. Having a different perspective is wonderful!!

God has brought so many wonderful people into my life and I truly felt so loved by them all on Monday… I thank God for that and of course everyone that reached out to me! Thank You!!

I have decided to go ahead and do the Project 31 for today, though, I am not really sure how to answer… but here it goes J

Day 5.  Write a blog thanking someone who has made your heart come alive.

There are so many people that has made my heart come alive… Some for brief moments and some for a lifetime.  My kids definitely are the main ones to make my heart come alive and for them I have to thank God. He is the only reason why I have them J 
I guess another person I can thank would be my ex. My daughter’s father… It’s because of him that I am saved. We had a rough and bumpy relationship. I love him more than any one else at the time (besides my kids) and was willing to do whatever it took to make this relationship work since I already felt like a failure because I was divorced.  But it didn’t work out. And I was heartbroken. I felt lower than I have ever felt in my life. But because of that LOW I was able to see how much I needed God. So if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be saved! 
The biggest person though that has made my heart come alive… is Jesus!! If I hadn’t come to know him and love him, my heart would still be just another muscle in my body. I wouldn’t be the person I am today. God works wonders and even though I had to go to low points in my life to come to know Christ… It was the best thing in the world.  God has worked so many miracles in my life, and I know I don’t deserve any of them, but He thinks I do. The biggest blessing He has given me is His Son!! I have the opportunity to go to heaven! I am saved!

Who or what has made your heart come alive?

God Bless

another monday

I wanted to do a post to day on the Project 31.. but the topic was write a blog post thanking someone for making my heart come alive…  and I just don’t have the motivation to do so. L 

I have been in a depressed state of mind lately… too many things going thru my head and most of them negative. L

I am debating on going to see a doc for some meds… but I really don’t know if that will help… part of me says yea… but part of me says that there’s something in my life that needs to be fixed.  

Its supposed to get extremely cold here tomorrow… ugh. I am so over this winter stuff… can’t it be spring already??  Only a few more months.

Next month is my birthday and I am looking forward to that. I am planning on taking the day off and having a “ME” day.  Maybe going and getting a pedicure… lounging around the house and reading, a bubble bath in the middle of the afternoon.  Just relaxation and just me, maybe take myself to a movie.. I hope there will something good out. J  I honestly can’t wait.  

This past weekend was a whole lotta blah. Did nothing but lounge and read. I was in kind of a down/icky mood… so I really didn’t want to deal with anyone, and sadly wasn’t the best mommy I could be. I tried to be better on Sunday, tho I was still irritable and the kids were starting to get cabin fever.  I didn’t watch the super bowl either. I was driving home for most of it and plus even if I was home- I have no cable/satellite/rabbit ears! Lol. We only watch movies J and I love it that way!!

So heres to a better week!!

Realization Friday

The best part of the week… FRIDAY!!! Yay!!!

And its realization time!!  Thank you everyone who sent them in!! J

I’ve come to realize:

~ that life never seems to work out the way you would like it to.

~ that as long as I don’t care, I may not be happy, but at least I can be content.

~ snow really sucks… and not having a snow day sucks even more.

~ this week had just been horrible for me to get up on time!

~ that I have some of the greatest blog followers.

~ that somethings even over time, don’t really change. They only get masked, but will eventually come back out.

~ that I give what I receive… if you stop giving, eventually I will too.

~ that I am just one person, I can only take so much heartache and she just has no idea.

~ that somethings once known are hard not to think about all the time.

If you would like to join in for next weeks Realization Friday, please email me your Realizations to and I will post them annonomysly on here J

The girl I want to be...

This is something that has been weighing on my heart lately.  And since this is my place to vent… here it goes.  I am not sure even if I will publish this in the end or not.. but at least its out there. I’ve said it. I can get these ping pong balls out of my head… even if its just for the time it takes me to write this.

I am a Christian.

Though sometimes I feel like if you looked at me you wouldn’t think so.  I feel like a fake.  I love Jesus.  My heart revolves around him.  Except, when my boyfriend is around.  Then my heart is all his.  And I hate myself for that. I want both of our hearts to revolve around Jesus and then each other. But they don’t. 
We are at two different place spiritually.  Two very very different places. He believes in God, but not to the point of worship. I am not even sure if he prays. Its just not something that we really talk about, and I am not sure why.  Me? I am saved, I have been baptized, I pray, I talk, everyone who knows me, who’s how I feel about God.  I don’t hide that.  But this one aspect of my life, feels dark, not true. 
I am having sex with him. We ain’t married.. we are not even engaged.  I feel wrong about that too.  But I can’t stop.  I gave into the lust that I felt and now I feel like I can’t turn back.
I drink. And too much on occasion. I don’t act wild and stupid and crazy most of the time, though I have had my moments where I have danced on the bar and shaked my booty… even after I have been saved.  
I feel like I have a struggle going on inside me.  Between the person I was and the person I want to be.  
I was the girl who was quiet and reserved. The girl who was shy and lacked self confidence. I was the girl who after a couple drinks would be the first one out on the dance floor just wanting to have a good time and not having a care in the world.  I was the girl who loved getting attention because growing up, I never received it (from boys). I was the girl who ended up cheating on her husband and then going home and looking him in the face and telling him I loved him, because I did. It was myself that I didn’t love. 
I don’t want to be that girl anymore.

I want to be the girl who’s life revolves around God. That every aspect of my life does. That I can go out and have a drink or two and be fine, not have to keep drinking or even have a drink to have fun.  I want to be a happy wife and a mother, a friend, a Christian.  I want to have a big family and I want to adopt part of that family.  I want to pray together as a family and not just at meal time or bed time… but any time.   I don’t want to be a hypocrite.  I want to be the girl that God has made me to be.  
But I am human and I keep slipping back to the way I was and part of me hates myself for that. I can do better.  

God Bless
