catching up...

So, we went on our trip and had a wonderful time. I rubbed ritas belly all weekend and we went shopping and got her cute maternity clothes and big maternity panties. LOL It was very fun and I had a nice break from my hubby and the boys! :)

My hours haven't increased at all at work and one of my jobs has the possibility of being "no more". I am trying not to stress about it. not until we get home from our vacation anyway. LOL

Tony's birthday was last week. We had dinner at moms..tacos and burritos. He had a batman cake and got quite a few gifts. We always have such a hard time buying him gifts because he is a man, but thinks like a child. He says he wants toys but really has no desire to play with them. My kids were THRILLED with his gifts though. LOL He also got clothes and shoes and new PJ's. so he did quite well for a 35th b-day.

My birthday is this week. Thursday. I'll be 31. THIRTY-ONE. I don't WANT to be 31. seems like having kids has made life speed up. I want everything to slow WAY and down. Mom is making me a birthday dinner and bought me a gift (yay) and we are leaving on Sat for that will be my gift from K. That's what happens when you have no money...things you would do anyway become your "gift". LOL

Having some issues with Logan. Basically, he is a big baby. LOL If he doesn't get his way, he cries and throws a fit and acts like a little brat. I have worked at his school a couple times and he acts so awful, I am embarrased. I was hoping that he acted worse when I was there, but his teacher told me that he acts just the same. oh goody. The kids don't really like him...probably because he acts like such a baby. I don't know what to do about it. I worry about next year when he is in Kindergarten at a new school with new "friends". We are working on letting him know he doesn't need to cry and whine over everything and he doesn't need to completely freak out. It is very frustrating. Yesterday he stole a little plastic frog from school. so he was sent to his room for 15 minutes and on Monday he has to take it back to his teacher and apologize. he told me that he steals because he doesn't have anything. which is just laughable it is SO absurd. He has lots and lots and lots of things. I told him if he steals again he won;t be getting any birthday presents (in December) because little boys that steal don't deserve gifts. I am pretty sure I SUCK at this parenting thing!

Monday is Halloween. Logan will be Batman and Dylan will be Robin. they are SO cute in their little costumes. LOL Logan has a Halloween party at school on Monday. they dress up in their costumes and have a parade around the neighborhood. I might have to drive up there and see that. :)

We carved pumpkins last night. they turned out SO good! I was really impressed with my drawing abilities and Kyles carving. One is a normal jack-o-lantern with triange eyes and nose and missing teeth, one has eyes that are flames, and Logan "designed" one with round eyes and eyelashes, a pac-man nose, and jagged mouth. LOL Logan drew his on paper and then I drew it on the pumpkin. I'll post pics later.

No big plans this weekend. I want to go through the kids toys and books and weed out the stuff no longer played with, etc. I want to run up to KMart and look for some t-shirts for K to wear around the house. everything he has has holes in it.

Amelia is going to boarding school tomorrow. I might run over there and tell her good-bye. Play the part of the nice "big sister".

I guess that gets me all caught up for now.

Until next time...........

We are heading to Tn tomorrow. Mom is going with us and K is going to drop off mom and I at my friend Ritas house and then he is going on down to my MIL's with the boys. Mom and I will stay with rita's mom and then we are going to go shopping and stuff on Saturday for BABY stuff!! I am so excited to see them and to pat her belly!! :) It will be a quick trip...we are coming back on Sunday afternoon.

4 hours 45 mins

So....remember how I said that if I could get 40 hours a week with the IRS job, we would could survive? I got my schedule for next...guess how many hours they gave me? Yep...4 hours and 45 minutes. We SO can NOT live on THAT!! I am very very very stressed about money. This sucks.

put me out of my misery

I'm sick!! waaaah!! I have an awful head cold complete with running/stuffy nose, watering eyes, pounding face, gums, and jaws, fever, and just plain miserableness. BLECK! Kyle is out right now buying me Puffs Plus (I have already gone through 2 rolls of TP and my nose is RAW) and OJ and is getting Chinese from my fave chinese place 25 mins away. Yay him!! :)

I worked for about an hour this morning and then canceled the rest of my shifts. I just feel to miserable to deal with work today.

Please feel sorry for me!!!

He "had" a job....

K went for an interview last week. It was a marketing/promotional position for a tobacco company. No benefits but the money wasn't too bad. He was told that if he passed his background check he would be hired. He passed the check...the guy called him...asked him to come in and meet with him again and that he would have an offer letter for him. He also told him to be sure and bring his proof of car ins.

SO..K goes yesterday..(despite a 102) fever. he drives 30 mins to get there. Gets there and the guy tells him that they have decided they are going to put the "Dayton Market" on hold for awhile. UGH! K was annoyed to say the least. The guy said they had just decided that an hour before the scheduled meeting. how freaking frustrating.

SO, the plan for now is for me to work as much as I can for my IRS position. If I can get 40 hours a week doing that...we should be ok...for the most part.

Lee and his lady

I never updated on meeting "Lanie" Lee's girlfriend.

We only spent about 30 mins total with her. But she seemed to be very nice and sweet.

I didn't think that Lee really liked her since he said that she wasn't "good looking enough" for him. Insert HUGE eye roll here. Like HE is SO great or something! BLECK!! LOL and she isn't ugly by any stretch of the imagination. Lee is a freak.

anyway....they started making plans to move in together. Into my Inlaws basement (which is were Lee lives now). My MIL doesn't believe in living together before marriage. so, they were going to go to the JOP and get married. She just converted to Catholicism, so I was surprised she was willing to not have a church wedding. Plans have changed now though and she is moving to mississippi and lee is moving down there with her. I am guessing that since they won't be living with my MIL that the marriage is not going to happen now. But who knows?

of course...kyle knows nothing. I ask questions and he has NO idea because he WON'T ask questions. How weird is that?!? LOL

So..that's the Lee/Lanie update. I'll keep you all posted!! ;)

She's having a baby!!

I am SO thrilled and utterly excited!!

My very very very good friend, Rita is PG!! This is her 1st pregnancy and I am just so thrilled for her!! :)

I met her in 5th grade when we moved to Knoxville. We became the best of friends immediately and have remained that way for the last 20 (good LORD!) years!!

She has been married to alan, for about gosh...let's see...I was PG with Dylan and he is 3 I guess she has been married for 3 years. LOL Alan is about 10 years older than her and has children from a previous marriage. I think maybe they were getting a little concerned about not getting PG right away.

My mom and I were in TN a few weeks ago, visiting with R and her mom. R wasn't around and we were talking about her having a baby. R's mom said that she has been praying that R would get PG. She then said that she decided she was just going to believe that God was going to let R get PG before the end of the year. She then asked me an my mom to pray the same way. "God, we know you can do it...and we believe that you are going to make it so that R is PG before the end of the year". Of course, mom and I agreed. According to my research (LOL) R conceived that very weekend!! AMAZING!! :) (I knew they were having sex when she was supposed to be visiting with us!! LOL LOL)

SO...Miss Rita is gonna have a baby and we are just thrilled. I can't wait to go shopping with her and rub her belly. She is going to be a GREAT Mommy and her baby is so blessed. :)

Welcome to Mommy-hood my dear friend. your life is about to change in ways you never imagined and you will love, like you have never loved before. Enjoy your pregnancy...cherish every second of it...even the miserable stuff. You have been chosen to carry and raise this wonderful, precious gift from God. You are SO blessed. I love you!!
