It’s spring, it’s beautiful out and I’m OFF! Yesterday we had our goddaughter Harper up from Georgia and got great news about the kids godfather over in Afghanistan!
Today we decided to spend the day with our Barbie Jeep and roller blading! First off,I joined the 30 day squat challenge…and roller blading with thighs and a booty that hate you already, is exhausting! But besides the burn, it’s been a very eventful weekend!
The divas and I had a front room camp out last night. We curled up with snacks and peter pan! The kids are determined to visit neverland, who can blame them. I also forgot how sassy tinkerbell was! No wonder Kae loves her so much ;-p
I’m also in the process of sending out surprise postcards/letters. I just need to attach some stamps and remember to bring them to the mailboxes! Lol.
Spring has sprung! It was very late, but the sun is shining, the windows are cracked, the kids are going stir crazy and family activity is wild. For Easter we spent the day with the in laws. We had a an Easter egg hunt, birthday cake, board games, and fun. All in all, my first weekend off in months…was perfect!
To top off my perfect weekend, Paetyn passed her hearing test fully on both sides yesterday!! The doctor recommended speech therapy and full time preschool come fall. I don’t really believe in preschool, Kae never went and she’s top of her class. My mother was a head start teacher and I taught preschool for 2 years. I know what needs to be worked on at home…I don’t need to pay $125 a week for her to learn her shapes and colors…and I won’t. I do understand that her being within a group of children can hemp her speak more…but so can activities at the library, family get togethers and community activities. I’m just glad to know,she won’t need surgery or tubes. Truthfully,she’s just stubborn. Since removing the wax that was too far back for cleaning, she has been pronouncing better. She’s only getting better.
This week I’m part time for work, I’m excited! We FINALLY fired the drug addict, the new girl did ok while i trained and the new guy did great as well. This is the best staff we’ve had in a long time. I pray it stays this way!
I hope every one had an amazing holiday, that your all enjoying beautiful sunshine, and that you’re all feeling blessed.
Ohhh WordPress family, how I’ve missed you. I’d love to come back after over a week of silence with some of my witty charm…but sadly…I have none.
Remember my “jumpy jumpy Joy Joy” over being back at part time? They lied. I’m still at 40 hours a week…they are even forcing me to do a double Sunday. Let me repeat that, a DOUBLE -_- 9:45am until 12:15am. At any other job, this would be a walk in the park…at this job…its death in a box. Customers don’t start coming in until after 1pm. I predict a funeral and I’m stating it here for the interweb to remind my family….I love them and that wedding ring is to be made into earrings for both girls.
Aside from never sleeping and never seeing my family…I’m finally getting over some weird bug. For 2 weeks I was on death row. Everything sounded like Charlie Browns teacher, my sugar kept bottoming out, I was weak, dizzy, felt like I could hurl all day and couldn’t eat. It was amazing! I then passed it to Pae…who couldn’t eat and was very cranky! Some how it skipped kae and daddy…lucky little jerks!
Life has been pretty amazing. Family time is non-stop, kae is reading chapter books and pronouncing “big girl”words. Pae is still my little goof (can’t believe she’ll be 3 Monday,wah). This morning I warned her to put her pizza rolls on the counter so Miss.Kitty doesn’t get them…”No momma”…I then watch the cat steal a roll and run. Within 5 mins I’m getting a ticked off toddler. She stomps her little foot, places one hand on her hip and the other hand points at me “Bad momma, time out”. She refused to believe me! I got put in time out by a almost 3 year old! She’s in all the nahnahnadabooboo phase as she shakes get cute wittle booty at you, so that you chase her.
I love my family.
I’m beyond blessed.
I don’t know what I did right, to deserve the happiness that fills my life.
Well last night I think my body finally shut down. After weeks of averaging no more than 3 hours of sleep a night…I died before 10pm. I managed to sleep until the alarm to wake kae up at 7:15!!!! This is amazing, only my body refuses to accept those hours and is still demanding more. I ended up napping a little before 7pm until a little after midnight. Now I’m wide awake at 3am…will I ever have a normal schedule? Probably not.
Today was Lil miss.pae doctor appointment. I dread the doctors with toddlers, they smell that office and instantly think pain. It also doesn’t help that you always walk in to the sounds of numerous kids screaming bloody murder. Needless to sat Pae instantly locked down and released her inner tantrum. The funny part was we were just trying to weigh her and she had no part of it! Side note: munchkin is 29 lbs and 37 inches. Once we fought to get her information and we’re sent to the room, momma calmed her suckers. I had to remind her the doctor just wants to see her ears and that she won’t get any booboos. Once calmed the doctor came in. I’m not racist by any means but I can’t help but get annoyed that I can’t understand anything this office says.
After explaining her reason for the appointment and being called a liar pretty much, the doctor noticed she really isn’t talking much. So she finally pulled out the ear test. Pae passed on her left ear but failed her right ear. After looking the doctor noticed a build up directly by the drum. So we’re do drops for a week and come back for a retest. They gave me names of local speech therapy places that accept our insurance but told me to wait until her test. Once we get the test done, depending on results we’ll be sent to an ENT office.
I’m just hoping we get somewhere with this and that baby girl doesn’t freak out next week lol. After her appointment we stopped to visit my Gma and helped babysit my goddaughter. Everyone is stressed about my mom but Gmaa is taking it worse. Apparently my mom is going to be staying with her for recovery. My mother and Gma are like water and oil. My Gmaa says black,my mom says white. Its been this way since before me and I doubt that will change. I just hope when she comes, they just along. We shall see…
I know I’m currently slacking on my blog, in my defense I got annoyed! Seems WordPress was against me, and many others. I wasn’t informed of comments, replies or even emails of the blogs I follow! So to atlantamom thank you for the beautiful momma award! To the wishes to my mom, thanks…and for the encouraging words about my whining over working full time THANK YOU!!!! 😀
Not much is happening in my house hold out of the norm. Today I finished my last shift of full time (insert cheesey grin), Friday my husband was released back to work! Kae loved her book fair! She found a monster high chapter book that we’ve been working on and tomorrow Pae has her ear appointment!
I don’t really talk much about Pae whole ear thing on here but she’ll be 3 the 25th and still isn’t fully talking. So we’ve been told there’s a chance of needing tubes. We shall see tomorrow morning after her test. The girl can talk and is finally understandable with 80%, she has that typical excited toddler stutter and than she has her own language. Being her parent, I understand everything she’s saying 99% of the time. For us its just crazy, only because kae was speaking full sentences before she was 1….she still is always talking! Mainly I made the appointment to shut family up. Growing up the oldest of 3 kids.. The oldest tend to always talk for the youngest! So I’ve just been saying she’ll talk when she’s ready…she’s getting there.
For now though I’m going to get lost in my kindle. This series has sucked me in and refuses to let go…hopefully I can stay awake to enjoy it.
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 interweb I’ve made it a full year at work (for me that’s amazing, I have really bad job a.d.d.). An entire year of listening to men whine that their wives dress like men now, wives complaining their men lost the romance. A year of explaining ways to spice up your partner/yourself…a very long interesting year. My boss thanked me with a pizza party and Michigan helped me have an easy day with a huge blizzard.
Before I move fully off the work topic, I’m going to educate you ladies real quick. Listen up! Your husband lies to you. He does not like you walking around in sweats daily. He’s not thrilled that it looks like you robbed his closet. He does notice when you stop wearing make up or doing your hair. He secretly wishes he had the balls to tell you himself but he’s a male! Also, my male readers…your girls are not scared to try new things!!!
Moving on from the place consuming my life currently! Aside from that, my mother is now moved to rehab center. She’ll be there for 2+ weeks…from her few texts she’s over it and misses her boyfriend.
Life at home: hubby tried going back to work 2 weeks before his (hopefully) doctor release. He lasted a full shift and 2 hours of second shift…it was too much. He is currently back at home and waiting for his appointment Friday.
The divas are great though! Pae birthday is coming up and I guess it’s officially time to quit calling her my baby. On the 25th my baby will be 3 :(. The funny part is Kae class celebrates summer birthdays throughout the spring…her school “birthday” is the 26th! Which means I’ll have twice the cupcakes to make….this is exciting for her. Life is as good as it can get for all the chaos going on.
I hope everyone is doing great.
