Another Tag......
"The rules are easy, all you have to do is write 7 random facts or habits about yourself in your blog. Then choose and list 7 people and leave them a "tag" letting them know to come by and read your blog, and see why."

Here are my 7 Random Facts...

1. I secretly want a pet monkey when my kids are all grown!

2. I dont know if I wrote this one in my last meme.... I have an extra rib.. yup.. a spare rib.. Hahahaha.. I crack msyelf up..

3. I had to have braces 2 times. The first time they didnt do it right so I had braces and was pregnant with my first.. People thought I was only 15 and pregnant.

4. I was adopted but me and my adopted mother look similar so you'd never know!

5. My biological father and I made contact when I had my first son and I think it's awesome!!!!

6. I have 4 brother's the 2 oldest are my parents biological children, and the 2 younger brother's are adopted along with me. My brother that is right under me in age is my ACTUAL biological brother.

7. My first son looked exactly like my biological brother from birth until about 1 and it freaked me out when I would nurse him. It was like having my brother hang from my boob!!!!

Anyway I hope you enjoyed these.. !!!!

A Tough Week...

My family fridays this week is just some pictures about my week. Ti-Guy got some gastrointestinal thing on tuesday morning, was throwing up all day. He started to look really grey in the afternoon so the dr had him come in. They sent him straight to the ER for IV fluids. He was admitted for the night and was released Wed evening at 4:00 pm. He is much better now, back to his normal self, but I am not. I am exhausted. Anyway on a better note look how much got done on our deck the past weekend!!!! Hubby and his friend Kenny busted their butt's working on it and got so much done~!!!

When the kids don't put up a fight at bed time and they just crash!!!!! Cory is my little baby, but lately he has been crazy.. Fighting with me over everything. He whines when he's on the floor playing, he pushes me away and wont let me hold or cuddle him, he pushes me off when I kiss him, and at bed time he will only go down in his crib, which sometimes takes a few tries. But when this happens, not only is it a Kodak moment, but it is the most cherished of photo's because they aren't fighting or biting or pushing you away!~ They are just OUT LIKE A LIGHT~~

I'm going cross eyed!!!!

Why does it seem when one thing falls apart, everything falls apart. My kids have been sick it seems consistently since November. On and off they both take their turns getting one thing or another. I feel like I have had to cancel so many events and appointments that it's not even funny anymore.

Just in the past 2 months, Cory had a cold, ear infection, stomach virus, and just in this past week roseola. Now that he is done this morning Guy wakes up throwing up. Why???? Why??? You would think I go around and have my kids lick shopping carts.. I do not!!!! We wash our hands, we use shopping cart covers... We DO NOT touch the toys in the sick or well room at the Dr's office.

Now on top of that I've been planning something that finally seemed to be falling into place.. and now that may be falling apart. Also me and hubby have been arguing a bit. Nothing serious but its one of those spurts I think every couple goes through where communication hasn't been up to par and frustrations are let out on each other. I am so frustrated beyond belief.

I know that everyone has struggles, and I know in comparison these struggles are minuscule to other people's problems, but I thin I am allowed to be frustrated at this point. It's those times that I just feel like nothing can go right.. Everything has to be an issue or struggle. Please I pray everything falls back into place and I get a break before I have a breakdown!!!!!

Weight Loss Challenge - Week 5

Alrighty... I need to crack down and start writing down points because I am stuck again. What are ya going to do.. I have no been counting points, I have been eating at my mother's house which is NOT GOOD!!!! I mean it's great food, just not the healthiest. It is because my uncle is in town visiting with his new wife and her son is my son's age so they like to play together. No more excuses...
Last night I felt awful and I promised myself that I am going to start today. This morning I am writing down all my points. I need to for myself. I need to focus on getting back on track. I do have a deadline and it is sneaking up on me. No, I am not beating myself up, or being to hard on myself, but I do very much need to get back on track. So here I am letting you all know that you need to all help hold me accountable this week to stay on track!!!!

I need all the support I can get!!! :-)

My File Cabinet
Do you ever feel like you don't have anyone to talk to???? That's how I have been feeling lately.

Normally everything in my life is decently organized.. Not overly organized, but I am pretty good about it all. My house is pretty organized, my clothes, hubby's clothes, and kids clothes are very organized, my pictures on my computer are organized, so much I organize. One of these areas includes my mind.. If my mind were a piece of furniture it would be file cabinet. If you mention a time period I can go back and pull out, in order memories in which they happened.

The one thing I have a problem with is my thoughts. When I feel as though I can not talk to anyone all of my thoughts ramble together in my mind and I can not make sense of them. Yes!!! I have my husband, but sometimes he gets in funks where he is overwhelmed with everything on his plate and I don't want to burden him with my silly thoughts and ideas. (they aren't really silly but sometimes compared to his they are)

Then Of coarse I have friends,,, or I should say I have a friend who I can talk to, but you don't want to unload on them either. I do talk to her, but sometimes there is too much in this brain of mine to even organize it to talk about it by time we talk. And who wants to only have jumbled crap to talk about instead of something good!

And I hate when these jumbled thoughts keep me awake at night, a woman needs her sleep!!!!!

I just want my thoughts to be filed correctly in my file cabinet!
