Ever feel this way?

Posted on

Bitter, frustrated, angry.
I’ve felt this way for about a week. πŸ˜•
It’s frustrating. Go figure. πŸ˜‰

Last week when Dear Sweet Alece was getting cheech and chong removed, she had a contest for the 10,000th commentΒ on her blog. With much effort on my part (read:obscene amounts of comments) I won! Today my prize arrived. I love prizes. πŸ˜€Β Wanna see what I got? Click Here. Also, keep in mind that I had no makeup on, I was in my nightgown, and I am sick. K? Thanks. πŸ˜‰

Love you Alece!

oh great

now I’m sick. Super sick. Just when I get used to a new routine with the boys and am all excited about it and keeping it going for them, I get WHAMMED with sickies. πŸ˜• And I had to cancel my hair appt. and we aren’t going out on our date tonight. It’s our night for our “date swap” with my friend/neighbor. I watched her girls last weekend and tonight was our night to go out. I’m bummed. 😦 Β Oh well I guess huh.

I am all nasty and gross and my head is KILLING me. I am all sweaty and feel like I have a fever. My chest hurts and I’m coughing a little bit. I’m so bummed. Jake has a four day weekend and I get to spend it sick. Good and bad timing. Good b/c he’s home to (hopefully) help out with the boys and bad because our four day weekend will be wasted. 😦 Dylan is a little sick too, but not nearly like I am. Owen has the sniffles but he is also getting new teeth. Aidan though is fine. πŸ˜€

Jake is upstairs sleeping still (he got up at 8 with them and then I got up at 10 and he went back to bed) and the boys are doing play doh right now. They want to do a craft so bad but I don’t have the energy to supervise the glue and glitter and scissors and stapling. Or “stampling” as they call it. πŸ˜† ha ha ha!

I just want to go curl up in bed and sleeeeeeeep. 😦

Aidan is trying to turn on the DVD player and he is pressing the wrong button and he just threw up his hands in the air and said “This is a piece of JUNK!” hahaha!!!! πŸ˜† Oh man that is funny.

The other night Jake was reading books to the boys and in one book a kid had three slices of cake and Dylan said “wow! THAT is a lot of sugar there!” πŸ˜† hahaha! Jake said to me later “well I think you made am impression about sugar intake.” heehee I’m always on them about sugary stuff.

Owen has really been “listening” to us lately. He dumps out the dog food ALL THE TIME and Jake said “Owen pick up the dog food and put it back” and he was picking up the pieces and putting them back. It’s so cute and fun to ask him to do something and then watch him do it. I love that he is learning. πŸ˜€

Alright, off to drag about my day. πŸ˜‰

I’ve been busy

Posted on

Hey all.Β  I’ve been busy. Really busy. I’ve wanted to post and post and post and had some cute posts in my head, which I of course don’t write down, so I forget them and am left with nothing. But I did take pictures, so that helped. Want to see what I’ve been up to? It’s been fun, it really has. πŸ˜‰

Saturday and Sunday I baked. I baked and baked and baked. And cooked. A lot. It was fun. I’m not sure WHAT got into me, but it was all I wanted to do. I even made a batch of some sinfully yummy brownies for Jake to take to work Monday. It’s all about the brownie points….no pun intended. πŸ˜‰

Β Sorry it’s a little blurry, I was shaking from a sugar high because I ate half of them. πŸ˜•

I also made another batch of brownies for us here at home. I must say, homemade brownies are so super easy and MUCH better than boxed. I was amazed. First time making them from scratch and it was easy easy. Too easy. I’m making more today.

I also made some breakfast cookies and baked oatmeal. Both recipes I got from my sister in law. The boys LOVE the baked oatmeal and the breakfast turned out good too. I made them with a flax seed cereal, so they’ve been very, um, regulating for the boys. πŸ˜‰

I also made cookies which I didn’t get a picture of. Bummer. They were cute pumpkins. For dinner one night I made some bread and chili and man oh man was that bread good. Since then I’ve made three more loaves. Yeah, we like bread. πŸ˜‰

Β That was some good chili. I gave half that loaf to my neighbor, and half of the chili. Yummmmm. *slurp*slurp*

Monday with the boys was BAD. B.A.D. BAD. I didn’t have anything structured for them to do b/c #1.Β  I was dead tired. I got only 2 hours of straight sleep, and then only 15 minutes here or there through the night. The kids were having a wierd sleeping night. And I paid for it. πŸ˜• So Monday was bad. So bad that when Jake got home I retreated and didn’t come out. Since then, we’ve been doing crafts and such ALL DAY each day. I went to the dollar store the other night and loaded up on craft supplies and things for them do to. They are LOVING it. And I kinda am too. I’m glad to have something the love doing so much, so our schedule now is breakfast, craft, snack, outside, lunch, outside/craft, nap, and then our evening routine. I’m also thinking of fixing the garage so they have a play area in there for when the weather gets bad or too cold for them to be outside. I’m going to order some bouncy balls and belly scooter for them. The garage is big enough and empty enough for them ride their bikes in there too. I’m excited to get it set up.

Here are some pics of their fun crafty stuff and some of the stuff they’ve made. πŸ˜‰

They love this ABC banner up. For Dylan it’s a little redundant, but he enjoys helping Aidan learn them. πŸ˜€ They sit at the table facing this and sing it together. TOO CUTE! πŸ˜€
Okay, hope that has everyone up to speed.Β  I’m getting my hair hacked off tomorrow so be ready for some more pics! πŸ˜‰
*******I just read through this and I am CRACKING UP at my typos. And I SWEAR that when I typed “dinosaur” for Dylan’s picture I was THINKING elephant. I swear. πŸ˜† I have had no caffeine today. This is my problem. πŸ˜† hahahaha!
