Quotable Quotes

Posted on

I was on this financial website today and it had an article with these quotes. Somehow they pertained to finances, I guess I should have read the paragraphs after them? ๐Ÿ˜‰
Anyway, I found these to be good quotes worth saving. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve been tagged!

Posted on

My friend Cheryl ( tagged me on her blog so here goes…….

Okay here are the rules:
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you donโ€™t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Donโ€™t forget to leave them a comment telling them theyโ€™re tagged, and to read your blog.

N- Nice….to a fault. I definately fall into the “people pleaser” category.
I- Inconsistant. I am very much a “bouncing off the walls” kind of person. A bit scattered. ;o)
C- Caring. I truly care and worry about EVERYONE I know.
O- Overweight….ah ha ha!!! I just had a baby, of course I am! (I really couldn’t think of anything else here. heehee)
L- Loyal. If I consider you a good friend then you are a friend for life.
E- Extrovert. Totally. I NEED to be around people for me to feel “right” and like myself. Otherwise I get a bit depressed.

Okay there ya go. Not sure those are so special or interesting, but there it is!
Okay I will tag….

There ya go! ENJOY! heehee

Sooooo Angryyyyy

Posted on

12:08 AM – Soooooooo Angryyyyyyyyyy Current mood: disappointed
Jake just called. He had a conference call this morning. We thought it would be good news. It’s not.
We aren’t moving anytime soon. Since February they have been telling us we are moving. At first it was July, then it was Septemeber, then it was December, then it was back to October, then it was “any day now,” and now today they tell us if we’re LUCKY we’ll get orders MAYBE in November and then not move until sometime between February and April….if we’re lucky. I’m thinking we’re not.
I am so angry right now. I want to scream and puke and cry and pull my hair out all at the same time. My gut reaction was “WHY GOD would you do this? We have prayed and prayed about moving and asking you to move where it would be best for us and then you go and keep us here. WHY?!” and then I realized that maybe He is keeping us here for a reason, a reason I can’t possibly understand or imagine right now. I know I shouldn’t be angry, but I am. I know I should trust God that this is right for us right now, and while I do, I just don’t understand it. God knows how hard this has been for us, how hard it’s been on our marriage, and yet here we stay. Please God let me see the bigger picture here and be okay with this.
“I know it is right in the sight of my God but my heart is dying to differ”
I wrote that in a poem FOREVER ago, in highschool sometime. I never thougt it would apply now.
This has to be okay. I have to get a grip and realize we are not leaving anytime soon and just move on. I feel like I need a mourning period or something. ๐Ÿ˜›

The Rundown……

Posted on

Saturday night we went to the races with Mom. We took Dylan and Aidan and left Owen with my grandma. Mom is bringing McKenna too. Mom picked up ear muffler looking things for the kids to wear so the noise doesn’t hurt them. It was too loud for me at some points, not all, but enough so that I don’t want the boys to not be protected. The races were sort of stressful for me b/c the kids would NOT sit down. I think I watched MAYBE 5 minutes COMBINED time of the races. The last straw for me was Aidan throwing a screaming fit and Dylan knocking his soda all over the kid in front of us. Talk about embarrassing. So I packed up me and Aidan I left. Aidan and I had gone out after Mom and Jake and Dylan and Kenna….. that way I could leave early to get back to Owen. Good thing too b/c Mom and Jake and the kids didn’t get back until almost 11!!!!
Needless to say we skipped church so the kids could sleep in from such a LATE night. Sunday morning we got up and Jake started doing some yardwork. I called mom to see if the boys could go over there for the morning/afternoon while we cracked out some yard work. We got almost all that I wanted done DONE, there will be some tidy up stuff to do on Friday or Saturday before the shower, but pretty much the big stuff got done. ๐Ÿ˜€
Then I had to take Owen to the Dr. so they could make him POOP. He still had not really gone…he went Saturday but just a teeny bit. I called Sunday and they wanted me to bring him in, so I did. They did some “stuff” to him and gave him a suppository (I had given him one saturday too) and sent us home. When we got home he finally had a BLOWOUT. I got him cleaned up and then we went to our Link Group BBQ at David and Sabrina’s. We stayed there for a while but I was so dang tired I was practically falling asleep on the deck…I felt like I was anyway. Hopefully no one noticed! LOL
Yesterday I had my 6 week OB check-up…. that went good. She talked to me about antidepressants but I said I didn’t want to do that just yet, to which she said “I knew you’d say that” hehe I just want to wait it out and see what happens. I’ll know if I’m getting worse or even just not getting better. I really think it’s just baby blues….After that I went shopping for more baby shower stuff. I can’t say here in case Kacie reads this, but it is going to be SO CUTE! I am very excited to do this. ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a TON to do though before Saturday. UGH…not sure how I will get it all done. My mom is going to come help with some stuff….but right now it all just seems like a lot…and I am totally that person that does not ask for help b/c really, I don’t want it (unless it’s my mom) b/c I just like things done a certain way. ;o)
Oh yeah, Owen slept 5.5 hours Sunday night!! That is the most sleep I’ve gotten since before I had him! I felt like a new woman!!! LOL I swear it was because he finally pooped, b/c he hasn’t pooped since then and now he is fussy again. Anyway, since I had gotten SO MUCH sleep that night I was totally in the mood to clean and stuff yesterday so last night I got a lot of cleaning done and I even made dinner! yeah, sounds small, but lately for me, that was a big deal. LOL However, you’d never know I cleaned by looking at it today. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was just telling my grandma this morning while she was here for a while that that is the ONE thing I HATE about being home all day….the messes. YOu have to constantly be cleaning to keep on top of it…..especially with three kids. Three kids and a husband who forgets to clean up the dinner mess so I am left with it in the morning. Niiiiiiiiiiiiice.
Today is a low key day again.I was beat when I got up this morning. I stayed up too late IM’ing with Marcia last night and I didn’t get to sleep until 1. Then Owen woke up at 4:30, back to bed at 5:20, woke up again at 7:30 and then that was that. I tried to snooze on the couch for a while this morning and succeeded until Owen started getting fussy. Dylan was just playing in the living room and cuddling with me off and on until he got hungry. Aidan didn’t wake up after 10!!!! OMG!!! I love that that kids sleeps in so late! I wish Dylan would do that. Dylan is up at the crack up dawn, always. He is getting good about sneaking into our bed so I don’t even hear him. When I woke up at 7:30 he was there!
Mom is coming over later maybe to help me make some shower stuff but other than that, nothing much today. I just want to sleep. ALL of the kids are asleep right now…granted Owen is on my chest even right now, but at least they are all asleep. I hear the couch calling my name…………………

Confusion….a constant state of mind

Posted on

Okay so I am finding this whole thing confusing. While pretty, it is very confusing, sort of. Maybe I am making a mountain out of a mole hill, but I feel confused. Maybe I don’t need to figure it all out….maybe I’ll treat it like my computer. I know how to turn it on and how to get to the internet and my email and stuff. Anything else on this hog I have no idea how to operate. I barely know how to find my pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I guess I could just continue to just log in and do my my BLAHG and call it good…. and not worry about all the bells and whistles. CRAP. I hate learning new technical stuff. Makes me feel real smrt.
