Its been a long while

Wow - do i want to start this again?!?!!

Friday, April 23, 2004


I get home from work help put the kids to bed tuck while my oldest sits on the computer playing his games, it's become quite a time consuming thing for him once this week on Wed I bet he was on 3 hours if not more. But because it was new and got outta school early that day and did his chores I said it was ok but told him of the hour interent rule per day. I more than anyone understand that time flies once you start surfing and reading and playing games whoo hoo i love that but yes it can be 1045 and then next time ya look it's 220am. and believe me it's happened.

But so, C says he's been sitting there since 915 and I'm like well it's 10 now 15 more min, but cuz a friday nite and stuff i'll let ya stay on till 11. He's like you just wanna go on, well yeah I'm the adult here and I like to read the news and weather since we don't have local cable channels or anything. I do all my kids pre-school activities and worksheets online, I pay bills I balance credits and debits and all that stuff, my journals my pictures and my day calendar is important I record days events and up coming appointments and such. After work I sit at least 30 minutes just doing that once a day. During the day If i am able to sit at the computer I seldom have a second to do much of that with little ones. But anyways my oldest at 11 now cops an attitude like C said I could be on till midnight, which I'm sure he never said.

He has band contest in the morning and is getting up with hubs at 5am to go shingle some more and at 8 i'll pick him up with the kids to go listen. That means I'll have to get up and get me and the kids all ready by 8 so that means at least by 630 we will have to all be up. I just know J is not going to think he's going to be a veggie in front of the computer 24/7 and be pissy and crabby cuz I make him get off. LOL i'm such a mean mom. An hour and 45 minutes and 11pm a bedroom curfew since he's to be up at 5am is ample time I believe I'm very fair. Oh well I guess I don't like to crack any whips round here but I know it's for his own good, just feeling like the mean mommie or something lol.

I suppose gotta check on a few things and hit the hay myself busy weekend ahead.


My baby crawled in bed with us he's been a turkey about going to bed and sleeping at all. He doesn't need sleep like the other kids it's funny, anyways he snuk in and crawls up in and then takes my pillow and is kickin us lol and 1/2 asleep. I just grabbed another pillow and decided I'd let him sleep there rather than disturb him cuz he's so cute laying there. He's getting so big.

2 weeks ago he weighed 34 pounds and has weighed that for a couple months but it's so cute cuz he's gotten this baby belly and chunk to him yet that he'll outgrow anyday I'm sure just as his curls I hadda cut out, but he stepped on the scale and weighed 39 the 1st time it's moved in months and he pats his belly, nods his head and says something like Full I think, but it's cute. I think it's the basket of candy on Easter he chowed down in 2 days too. lol

I still don't think his speech has improved all that much I would still say he only has a vocab of 20 words if that. I'm not happy with the choice to wait until the next school year to start him on regular speech classes, but I felt forced to choose that, then from birthright of SD says they are in fault of some SD program and I could press charges and I'm like OMG I just wanted to make sure everything is OK and he can hear blah blah.. crazy and other lady says doesn't like the programs oto much paperwork and the two obviously have issues, but I don't like the feeling my sons case might be in jepordy cuz of it. everything I read says start asap and 2 is good. And talking to another mom who's boy is 2 1/2 and started in wtrtwn he's up to over 100 words in 2 months now. Same situation as my son, and her son has less of a hearing loss that Z, I know each child is on his own I just don't hear any real improvement in the 2 months like the Dr said I should.

I will just keep on working with him one on one like I have been I bought a bunch of picture books and have him talk out things and he tries and I totally think he has his own language already. My duaghter doesn't help always talking for him, but what is SOOO Soo cute is how she understands him even when I don't. She's like Mom he said this not that.. and she knows. She's so mommy to him sometimes it's cute. I sure miss them all right now wishing I could go cuddle up or wake them up to say goodnight since I missed it 2nite. Was kinda nice to have our baby still up. Hubs saying you can put him to bed the turkey and i'm like lets leave him up hehehe. Can't start that he says, and I know we can't hubby needs his ZZZ's specially since I'll be working more nites.

Ok i suppose I could go back to bed and just wiggle back in either way I'm exhausted and waking up in the middle of the nights bad for me cuz it's so hard to fall asleep in the 1st place. Hubs has to work all weekend now too. It's our anniversary sunday.

OK so I'm a Runescape addict now or have been for almost a week, I am totally into games and this is like sims online but a zillion times better cuz it's fun for any age, my son plays it and thinking I should check it out since he's so into it.. and see why. But like with online games and multiplayers you meet people and this being a medival theme there's a million guys and being a girl player .. you can imagine how that goes. I do have to say I've joined this one clan who i've made the bestest friends with and today he left and his friend took over helping me another member of the clan they're recruiting me and suiting me up and giving me all kinds of tools. Anyways the leveling and stragedy is pretty awesome and for free-play no one can complain about complexity of entire game. It's pretty cool.

Lake Time

It's always excited me to be by the lake, specially in the spring when the ice is off and you see the ducks and babys and sunsets so pretty and the warmer weather gives ya spring fever and itches to get out and do things. Working on a lake is fun too as the summer crowd returns as well whom most all I so love to see again. I also get the itch to go camping and fishing, something the past few years with younger children we've not done as much of as the 1st 2 years we were together. We even bought a huge tent when we 1st were married but after having babies we never once got to go camping since cept for setting it up in the backyard for the kids. The kids are all old enough now to go finally. Even if it's just at the State Park down the road I hope we get to sometime this year.

I have been so busy, it's crazy. I havn't had much to journal about but then again not much time to sit down at the computer either, and when I do it's usually spent back chatting on yahoo with old friends or playing with all the pictures I take.

Went out last night nothing major but after working till midnight it was pretty late b4 I got to bed and up early. I had wanted to go out for awhile now since I hadn't for-ever and just wanted to do something. I guess that's outta my system for awhile again now, not that it's ever really been an issue with me or a need anyways, yet sometimes I feel like my life's so routine that you just have to do something different now and then to wake up.

I walked in 2nite and hopped on the bed and tried to wake up hubs and he just said come on in I'll warm ya up and I'm like lets watch a movie and he was sleeping again.. hahaha I can't imagine how anyone can sleep like that so easily. It takes me close to an hour to unwind and longer sometimes to fall asleep. I am pretty tired and busy tomorrow and work and SF on sunday it's going to be a long weekend. Suppose I'll go crawl back in bed and just wake him up the happy-ole whoo hoo suprise kinda way, sure he'll like that.

I'd do just about anything to have just one hour to write, right now cuz I so need it. I can't even start cuz once I do I'm afraid they're will be no stopping the way i'm feeling.

20 Signs you Have a Baby in the House

Sure some are a little out dated but I can relate to almost all of them.. :) and proud of it of course. Most got a good chuckle outta me from past thoughts and times as they've all occured.

1) You walk into the kitchen and get cheerios stuck to the bottom of your feet.

2) The toilet paper is either puddled 2 feet onto the floor or loosely re- rolled back into place.

3) The dog wants to stay outside to get some peace.

4) Everything in the house below waist level is either plastic or padded.

5) You can't open up a toilet lid, cabinet or drawer without maneuvering some sort of plastic contraption.

6) You get into the tub and step on a squeaky toy.

7) You can't find room for the "real" food in the pantry because it's filled with baby food jars.

8) The garbage can is locked away in another room.

9) There's tupperware scattered across the kitchen floor and the rest of the cupboard contents are scattered across the living room.

10) You feel like you are walking through a booby trapped mine field and then realize it's the living room.

11) The tv has itty bitty finger prints on it.

12) There are finger and nose prints on all the window panes at knee level.

13) You can lift an object over 20 lb. easily with one arm and rest it on their hip.

14) You eat with their fingers at the dinner table and think nothing of it.

15) At a restaurant you have to think twice about cutting your food in teeny tiny pieces and sharing it with everyone.

16) You no longer need an alarm clock.

17) You have sunscreens on the windows of your car.

18) There's dried drops of formula on the floors, furniture, etc.

19) You say nighty night when leaving a dinner party.

20) You actually know what a Teletubbie is.

Going Home

Me and the kids went over to Grandma's a bit ago but they were gone I had forgotten they had a funeral to attend this morning. My daughter upset to not be able to stop and visit says Where r they, I explained they had a funeral, of course a 4 year old asks what's that. I explained that an older man had lived a long life but has now died. She asks all kinds of stuff about why did he die and basic's I just said he'd live long and it was his time to go home to live with God. So a while later b4 we got home she says I wish that Jesus would hurry up and fly down and pick up that guy so grandma would be home. I thought that was so cute.

Went to a cooking show with my grandma last night it was OK, more fun to just be out with her she makes me so sad as I'm sure I too when we discuss moving. Sucks. Then got back and my cousin and his fiance were up for the funeral it's her great uncle and my oldest and his best friend are there watching the Twins baseball game. Only one cable company in town carries the games and my grandparents get it so once J's friend found out he was going over to watch the game he wanted to too. My grandparents didn't care having two boys over to watch the game with. BUT it lasted 15 innings and at 1210 they finally won and nothing like that to stay up late on a school night. But for me too Grandma broke out a wine bottle and we all sat and visited till then as well and being so tired and up late I awoke this morning feeling wiped out at 720.

It's super-windy today. I better start some lunch then get busy finishing up for the sale this weekend it's suppose to be crappy weather wise.. :( bummer but oh well. Chow for now

That's what I've been doing for the past week, rummaging thru anything and everything I can, every corner nook and cranny where-ever those places are I think I've now been. Were having a rummage sale this weekend never had one but oh my gosh I can't believe all the crap I have or have saved most of it I'm think OMG what the hell am I doing. I didn't think I was a clutter=nut junk Jane but going thru all this stuff I'm like If only people will come take it I'd be happy. Lots of kids clothes not the best stuff as I usually gave that to my cousins kids or passed on to other kids that need it, but just all kids of stuff I didn't even know I still had boxed up laying around.

I'm not into making a killing or anything, sure some if it's nice and about new those things I think if they sell they sell and that's cool I guess. Hubs has more of his stuff and expensive things. He's getting rid of most his hunting stuff but he has so much you'd hardly notice a dent in his things. I have yarn and boxes of it. Have no clue what to sell it for. At least 200 skeins it's crazy I just don't want to haul it or save it anymore but the more I think about it the more I want to go back out and grab it.. maybe i'll mark it all high. I mean a dollar or two a skein that's 3-4hundred bucks out there in just yarn OMG I'm crazy. But B4 I worked I crocheted a lot. I'm sure I will again someday just haven't this time in my life with little ones and all and activities but would like to again. Still enjoy the occasional but stick to smaller thread projects now. Easy to pick up and travel with.

Hubs starts his classes 2nite. Kids woke up this morning and I pre-school them myself this year and while we were doing the morning stuff C says Yep Dad's going to school 2nite. It was kinda cute he must have said something about it to her and she's all cool like her Dad's going to be like her now. ;)

We've been out most the day other than that it's 77 degrees outside it's awesome :) I still have 1000 things to mark and get ready I'll be out there most the night I think when we get home, maybe I'll drink up the rest of that beer I brought home who knows. :) Chow for now
