Hello blogging world! Sorry I’ve been away for awhile! We one again lost some employees at work…between 40+ hours, trying to maintain a house, keep my marriage alive and keep up with my beautiful divas…I had to slack somewhere! For that, I am sorry!
It’s been crazy over here! Kae graduated kindergarten Friday…my big girl is officially a First grader 😦
Her school doesn’t do a graduation ceremony…so I have her one!
Pae is talking more and more! Still waiting on her evaluation from Childrens hospital…but she’s improving alot.
For now here’s pictures.
Ok, so my title is actually a lie…due to being here at work. I’m impatiently waiting for Thursday! I’ll be free from work for 2 days and the best part…this is my last full time week!!! You can’t see it but I have the biggest smile ever!!! Ok, I promise to lay off the exclamation marks and while I’m at it, I’ll step off cloud 9.
My post lately have been very dry and straight to the point. Today maybe I can actually type out life and who knows give a giggle or two.
We hired a newb at work, she’ll begin Monday. I haven’t met her yet, I will Monday afternoon thou. I’m a good judge of character…hopefully my intuition thinks she’ll be drama free and a good addition. Also, we had what looked like our windows shot during the week. Boss is declaring it was someone spinning out and happened to spit ice all over…I don’t know that I believe it. Why? Ohhh, because one “ice chunk” went thru so hard it damaged a video case! I guess either way, they well say whatever to keep customers and employees happy. I mean, who is afraid of ice holes!? I’ll let you be the judge…bet you’d choose ice too.
This week is a fun filled week for Kae at school. Monday is the book fair (she’s obsessed with reading, like her momma), Thursday her change collection is due to help raise money for the school library to get new books and Friday is her spring pictures. If you haven’t caught on yet…this week is expensive! Miss.Diva already had a book sneak peek and needs almost $20, her change bag is barely full and pictures are $44. I guess working part time again should scare me, haha. But who can deny her the fun? Lol
Friday is hubby doctor appointment. He’s still feeling what he calls “an air bubble” around his incision and it still hurts to bend or tighten his abs. I’m hoping the good ol’ doctor says suck it up buttercup and ships him back to work Monday. Mean wife I know, but he’s been out of work since January! Plus if I’m back to part time, we’ll need that lovely income. I know if he had his way he’d be a stay at home daddy and honestly I think the divas would ok this! They all have such a blast together and love him being around daily. The few times he’s actually left for “Man dates” they had withdraw.
I guess I can’t blame them, I remember moments like that with my Dad. In all honesty they are the only few memories I have. Soon after drugs and disappearing took over the family time. Im glad my girls will never have that empty feeling. I may say stuff and act like he does nothing, but he’s an amazing man. I guess I key my jealousy get the best of me at times. Let’s face it ladies, the men always have easy with the home life…don’t act like you’re not jealous at times.
I’m pretty sure zero is finally out of heat, thank goodness! She’s mommas baby but good grief she was a furnace! She’s become very jealous of my kindle lately and seems to always find ways to Katy on it as she attacks with kisses. She’s lucky she’s a cute mutt!
Aside from my life, I’m doing good. That feeling of depression has started to fade. The sun is out and shining with no snow for once and I’m excited to go home at 5. I miss the divas….and the hubby.
I also am going to show a picture of my moms disgusting neck. You’ve been warned. As for her, she’s still hating rehab from what she’s been posting online. We haven’t really talked. Evidently she’s allowed alcohol there, or she’s at least sneaking it. I have nothing positive to say about it, so I’ll just post a picture.
Makes me wanna hurl 😡 nasty, nasty, nasty.
Moving on! I’m currently reading the Argeneau Vampire series by Lynsay Sands. If you’ve read the Highlander Series by Karen Marie Moning, and like vampires, you’d love the series. If you like romance with suspense I highly recommend both series. I’m including links for book summaries!
the highlander -just an fyi book one made me wanna rename my husband Hawk and I was close to buying a kilt 😉
Well I’m still working full time and it shows no signs of stopping…wahh! I’ve been the right hand man at this company for majority of the year I’ve been here…more so with the new Guy. I don’t mind, I mean we need the money, but man these 40 hours of night shifts and attempting to not be a zombie in the morning are killing me. My days off are spent sleeping! This week I was suppose to be part time…yeah I got called in Tuesday! Only good news is I pulled up to “Now Hiring” signs in the window. He’s had enough of the trash employees and is going above the next in commands head to remove them. This is exciting! I’m constantly called in to cover their shifts, I’m stuck fixing their mistakes and I’m missing out on my kids while they drink and do drugs!
Now that Kaes in school, any week day shift means I see her as we go to the bus stop and as I pick her up from the bus stop 😦 I can’t stand it and I feel like she’s going to hold it over my head that im not around. I know she won’t, she understands daddy isn’t working and that in order to get fun stuff, I have too. But….it’s putting me into a real depression. I miss my family time Aside from work, all is the same here. Except for my mother. She’s been battling a “pinched nerve” for 6 weeks now. Well after a MRI tonight she was sent straight to the ER. She has to have an emergency neck surgery -_- She’s getting it first thing in the morning and it’s scary. She already had a failed back surgery that has scar tissue climbing from her butt crack to her shoulder blades. The Dr told her she’s lucky she’s not freaking paralyzed. -Emergency Corepectomy? With fusion. They are going thru the front of my neck AND back. I have to get two vertebrates removed that are broken and decayed. – That’s from her.
So now I have the stress of this to add to my daily work stress. Blah. I’m just praying it’s all ok and that everything will work out this time. Other than that I crafted cute owl earrings and ordered the sexiest purse ever and have been lost in reading! ❤ Hope everything is going good for you guys.
are they adorable! ❤
Seriously thee most amazing purse ever! I’m beyond in love! And so glad I finally bought myself something!
Well hubby got his staples removed and is due back in 3 weeks to see what is our next step and hopefully his release back to work. Doctor said he is healing fine and to still take it easy. We also found out, hubby is allergic to bandaid adhesive, lol. The man has some lovely marks all over his belly.
As for me closing 4 nights in row took its toll on me and the divas. So yesterday and today have been dedicated to them! Kae has the whole week off of school for her winter break and is loving momma. The Barbie Jeep finally arrived! Their godfather and his wife ordered it back in December (Walmart online sucks ) and it came Friday! then yesterday I dropped Pae off at my grandmas while me and kae went to the used book store! Sunday also was gmas 66th birthday! We ended up finding a free book coupon too! So we went and bought Gma some new books and us! I ended up scoring a copy of the Boxcar Children! Now this series has more meaning to me than any other series ever! My grandma would buy a new one every time I’d come stay the night. It started off her reading them to me and one night I grabbed the book and started reading to her! I owned the entire series and would always give my Gma a full book report on each new chapter the kids went through. She started my passion with reading and now (since my mom lost my series during her split with our childhood home) I plan to pass it down. I got a few books as well and had one ordered that should come in tomorrow. I wasn’t a fan of the Wicked series, but I am a huge fan of his other novels. I finally scored a copy of Lost and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower comes in tomorrow. I even put together a bag of books to trade in! I own a kindle fire but holding and smelling a real book is just comforting and I must say I’ve missed reading! I am way behind on what’s out and I’m sad to know that I missed an entire Lee Childs series! Jack Reacher! Its on my list to pick up.
We spent today catching up with our friends and Kae loved it. We haven’t seen her best friend (boyfriend) Collin since Nov! We met them up at Chuck E Cheese to celebrate his birthday! The kids were on a sugar high like no other and had a blast playing games and running free. I think the best part was they serve beer, I died laughing…no coffee of course!
I have say between yesterday and today the divas have kicked my butt!
We tried a new spin on French fries for dinner tonight.
The kids approved it and so did we!
For now though I’m going to finish my book Dark Prince by David Gemmell…I’m dying to start Lost!
Surprise flowers sent to Kae at school
My friends parents sent me an amazing care package!
I broke my toe at work -_-
If you haven’t read his work…do it! Also if you like the show Bones, you need to read Kathy Reichs!
You read that right! The last week its felt like a hair is stuck in my eye, owning two long hair dogs,a kitten and two long haired divas, it happens alot! After many attempts to inspect every inch of my eye…I discovered the white part of my eye was bumpy! Trying to explain this to my husband…Psh…I was called a crazy lady numerous times before he FINALLY looked! Verdict was in, I’m not crazy.
Its called Pinguecula, I guess its caused from UV lights…by the way I don’t “fake and bake”, and its super itchy. The longer the day went on, the more I began to hate life! First I had an “eye” headache, than it moved onto a complete migraine -_-. Being the total hippie that I am, I refuse to take medicine until I have no choice (growing up with addicts can do this to anyone).
So let the trail and error begin. I tried every trick that normally works! Keyword, normally, I tried a warm teabag compress, I caked my temples in my peppermint oil, I drank peppermint tea, a chugged a few cups of water, I inhaled a fully caffeinated can of pop, dimmed all my lights…I even tried a nap! Needless to say NOTHING WORKED!! It hit the point of hurling my guts up and than crying because it throbbed so bad to than hurl my guts back up. It was a very brutal pattern!
I decided to throw in the towel, I took Tylenol, 2 hours later I was still suffering. So I put on my happy mom face and pretended I was ok.
Kae and I finished up her penpals bookmark and created another. As I’ve stated before, Tim Burton is our favorite! One of the divas favorite is Coraline!
We also had to make her teacher a monster one. Yesterday was Kaes day for show and tell and her bookmark was brought in with her monster purse. Apparently her teacher loved it…so she had to have one!
We also played Trouble and Candyland, had an art session, hide and seek and made dinner together!
Ohhhhh, we kicked daddy out for the day too! He had a much needed man date! We’ll its time for momma to apply her eyedrops and enjoy the quiet before daddy and Pae wake up!
She won a spy kit at school and thinks that mirror glasses are the bees knees!
Hubby is finally able to get around on his own! The kids are still impatiently waiting for playtime to start…kae ask everyday when the staples come out! They really miss daddy chasing them and running all over, Pae still could careless about the boo boos lol. She does easy sneak attacks and tells Hahah as she runs away! I’m also pretty sure my couch is going to have a permanent butt imprint -_-
Aside from the broken husband, bills are still making me wanna cry. The phones got shut off yesterday, rent is on a payment plan till taxes at the end of the month, dte is a little behind and cable is luckily good for 3 bills before they shut you off. Blah. I’m over it, so we’re moving on.
Kaes class had a Valentine box project due. So we turned a boring old KoolAid Jammer box into a pink and purple love note tote.
She cracks me up! I went out and bought 2 boxes of Valentines that come with matching pencils for her. After filling each card out she looks at me and goes
“Ya know mom, I don’t think the boys are going to like La La Loopsy pencils or cute kitty ones. So how about we just keep them!”
Aka she fell in love and doesn’t wanna give them all away! I did make a deal with her that I would go find a “boring boy kind” so she could keep some for her art box…I won mom of the year for this.
Lost in art
Thanks to pinterest Kae and I found some crafts to send to her penpal and maybe even her class…
Monster Bookmarks! This one is mine and this is Kaes!
Today while she’s in school, I’m going to attempt a La La Loopsy styled one (that’s her penpal favorite), hopefully it works…if not she gets a monster too. I even found a few recipes for baking soda clay I wanna mix up, so we can make some cute jewelry and fun stuff. Sadly today is my last day of freedom. I close tomorrow through Saturday…boo a little over 36 hrs in 4 days and all shifts till 1 and 2am. Again, blah.
For now though, I have blog catching up to do…and laundry.
Today is 48 hours out of surgery! He’s still very sore and with all the staples, I can’t blame him! He’s trying his best to get around the house but still can’t get out of bed or dressed alone. The cutest part is Nurse Kae.
She was so concerned while daddy was in surgery that I had to keep calling her at gmas with updates. Well note that’s he’s home, she’s made it her personal mission to become his shadow. Every time he’s sleeping and whimpers she runs over to, covers her mouth and nose and leans over to inspect him. When he wakes up, she makes him show her his bandages to make sure he didn’t bleed! Honestly it’s the cutest thing ever!
Last night he was laying in bed watching TV and I noticed Kae disappeared. I go down the hallway to discover both of then snoring away. She made a line down the bed with pillows “just so I don’t roll on his boo-boos.” The divas can’t wait for playtime to come back, but they are really loving all the TV and snuggling. As I left for work this morning Kae yelled down the hall “Don’t worry momma I’ll make sure daddy eats and takes his medicine.”
Today will also be his first shower…he’s been dying for this! So after work I’m forced to go buy him some antibacterial liquid soap and new gauze.
