I have really struggled to keep up on my blog lately but not because I didn't want to or because I didn't need the outlet. Man, did I need the outlet! There were just so many things I was feeling and experiencing that weren't appropriate for this place. Things have settled a bit, minus this Trek stress I feel so I will continue my yammering to the world of anyone who gives a crap!
I will keep the Trek stress to myself since for now it might not be super nice (:
and keep in mind, that I didn't start this post vague because I want people to ask what I am talking about,
oh no, that is very not me! If I wanted to share it, I would have!
I thought about checking in to a mental hospital but surprisingly my kids have kept me focused and fairly sane. Thank heavens for them and their wonderful art of keeping me busy so I don't implode some days!
and a bit of a random here and there post begins
Starting w/the random photos
Sam is six and a half and just tried his first Hamburger, surprise, he likes it!
These two found joy and comfort in shoving ninjas up their noses. I think they may have gotten the idea from Logan who decided to put a gum wrapper in his ear during Sacrament meeting and Dave had to take him home to remove it. I called him and idiot at least seventeen times. I'm not positive on whether or not that is considered good parenting.
I planted a bunch of flowers and plants and hauled around a bunch of dirt and wood chips (shocking I know). Sam was an excellent helper and one day I had Mitchell to help too! They were both sitting in the big yellow bags of wood, trying to shovel it out into a mini wheel barrow. I wish I had a photo of that.
Ella had her Clogging competitions at Lagoon yesterday. CC was kind enough to join me and suffer through the noise. 3 dances might be my limit. I had a coke to get me through.
Sadly Ella's stomach was hurting through all of this and she barfed promptly when I had just settled into bed w/a foreign flick on my laptop. Of course she missed the toilet and only got carpeted areas and beds.
Still glad I always called it a necessity to own a little green carpet cleaner.
Sam thinks that vending machines are called blender machines and that Hoagie bread is Yogi Bread.
Neve told Sam to ask Nicely and he asked again w/a sweet voice and w/please and she said "say it nice-lier!"
Today after church I went in my room to get away from Logan and Ella's stupid fighting and Sam followed me and got a blanket out and put it on me and laid by me then said "Hey mom, remember those days when Logan and Ella weren't here and I would just lay in your bed w/you and we would just talk? When can we do that again?" I said "Isn't that what we are doing right now?" and he said "oh yeah, we are!"
Logan says "hey mom what do you call a bunch of white guys on a bench?" dunno what? "The NBA"--I don't know where he got that but I found it pretty clever.
On the way home from my Moms Logan is teasing Ella about farting and saying she farts at school because it gets her all upset and I said "it's okay Ella, I've farted at your school" just to be funny and Sam says "yeah and I bet it stunk up the whole joint!" I figured at least it stopped their fight even if it was crude and I laughed at his use of joint. As long as I laugh I figure it all ended well. ha ha
I was out front watering this evening and Dave did a pressed ham on the window w/Neve's cute little bum. YES!!! now I can blame him for teaching the kids a bad behavior and I'll have a comeback when I'm blamed for teaching them other bad habits.
School is almost out for the summer and then all Hell will break loose. Deep breath!
