Wow! I can't believe it's been like three days since I posted on the blog! I feel like I have hit a mental block somewhat... This ear thing is about to drive me crazy... I get no relief unless I take pain meds, take the pain meds, get nothing done... Kids are with their dad this weekend so that leaves me here with no desire to do much... Hubby is home, but I'm pretty boring and because I want to lay and bed and do my thing, I set him up a Facebook so it would keep him busy for awhile...LOL

So Facebook... This is a huge leap of faith not getting freaked out on that...With my issues on past experiences, not getting up tight is going to be interesting... My thoughts were kinda conquer your fears type thing, that maybe if he got on it would show I am willing to trust and put the green monster on a longer leash... 

So, here we are, it's came to this, he is sitting beside me...both on facebook... Me trying to write a creative blog that no one really reads...and now I want a diet dew and something other than junk food for dinner... Better get up and just get going...

Ugh! I hate being sick. Struggling with sore throat, ear infection and blahhh. Been battling this for almost three weeks now! Ready to be over it! Ruining every ones plans with this crud! The hubby has been trying to take care of me and doing a fine job. Just wish I felt better so we could do something while he is on leave. My head feels like its shoved in a bottle and is all I want to do is take a screwdriver to my ear!!!

Other than being sick, not much exciting else is going on... well, lots of stuff but wouldn't call it exciting... most of its crap. Boy I tell ya, never a dull moment... Would I would really like to write about is how horrible my husbands kids treat him... But that wouldn't solve anything except make me more frustrated!!!

Lost Days

Well, it's been a few days since I have been able to post! I guess that's what weekends are about! So busy, crazy, it's just hard to get the time to get on for any length of time to do anything... Well, it didn't help matters it  was a bitter sweet busy...It was my son's 18th birthday! 

So all week last week I was pretty crazy... A little more so than others. Planned the oldest sons birthday! I wanted it to be so special for him. Something so awesome he will be able to look back and remember everything that was done just to make his day amazing. I hope he knows how much I love him... and so many others. I can't believe my baby is a man now... Our relationship as gone through many stages and I look forward to the momentous times to come. One major event down, many more to come. And as sad as it is to see my babies grow, I treasure every second. 

Now tomorrow my other two go back to dads and I am dreading that. They are too even more than me and it really saddens me. I guess this is the way it has to be for now. I wish I could take away all their sadness. They love their dad so much but feel they aren't wanted by his wife. That is a hard pill to swallow. I'm sure it is hard for her to have four boys to care for and I want her to be a mom to them. I will always be their mom and they adore me as much as I do them so I have no insecurities of being replaced. That is a whole other chapter... 

Thank you God for blessing me with four amazing and healthy boys. I love you.

How many marbles do you think we have...I ask because I'm not sure how many I have left. I am always losing my marbles. Do you think they are like blood cells that replenish themselves? I sure hope so because it seems like my marbles are limited.

Okay, well here it is just after 8 am and my nerves are already shot. I have nothing against animals, at all. They can't help who they have been stuck with and the definitely can't tell others whats up... But this neighbor behind me has a dog that is a blood hound slash think it's cute... I however am about to feed it some Nyquil. This dog bark/howls all the stinking time. It can be for hours or minutes  this dog "talks" to the whole neighborhood! Of course you feel bad for the (now whining) dog... and would like to take the parent's of this dog and ask HOW can they tolerate it?? The lady of the house is very unapproachable so I have yet to muster up the (shocker I know) energy needed to deal with this situation. I have thought of different ways to talk to her and usually in my head comes out where I had her on a collar, strung outside!
Hold on, let me relish in that a minute....Okay, that's better! This dog issue is just one of the many joys of living in a close (not close knit) housing community...

Now, well, I shouldn't sound so negative. I have some awesome neighbors. A few we have become very close to. Those are the ones that keep us sane. Most of our neighbors are prior military or current law enforcement as well as fire department and of course those are our circle of friends that comes with job association. It is very comforting to know there is back up when needed and medics (first hand experience) right around the corner. Although that is a positive aspect, our home, that we own, is a three level home attached to another home such as ours. We live in old base housing. Houses aren't too bad. Theres many updates and we do our share of "updating" our way... So now envision being able to hear everything!

Stage left....ROLL... Okay here we are, at my house, barking dog, and the noisiest neighbors ever!! The previous owners had six people in it and I literally never heard them, ever! We were so close and they were a lifesaver to me during a time I needed honest, true friends most. That story to come soon... Anyway...the gal and her daughter, yep, you read right, TWO people in the home... Are so loud. It is non freaking stop! I have no idea what they do over half the time! The daughter is 9, mom, well, she is heavy footed...and strong armed...SLAM...STOMP!!! Daughter doesn't like what she's told, well here it comes...STOMP, STOMP, STOMP, SLAM....BANG... UGH! It is about to drive me up a wall! I even tried in the friendliest way possible to talk to her...she has no clue how they are that loud, then proceeds to blame it on her ice machine "must be the ice machine dropping ice". My favorite "ohhhhh, I bet its the cat"!!! Are you kidding me??? I even tried to go around Joe's barn to explain to her daughter the rudeness of being so loud using my kids as an example. Still nothing! The six small steps from level to level doesn't need to be a hoedown!

Okay, I guess that's it for now.

Mondays are for....

Mondays are a drab day. It's a moan and groan, blame it on a Monday...Manic Monday, Monday Fatigue and I hate Mondays... I thought about it today and pretty much decided I am going to look at Mondays as Appreciation Day... Appreciate the good days, bask in the blessing of another week ahead and hopefully a weekend with family or friends. An appreciation that you had time with family or friends or maybe had to work because you have a job or the job you have appreciates you and may even get extra pay for working weekends... 

None the less...Hello Monday, welcome to my week...Bring it on!

What a day! Gosh I was so tired today! Couldn't get motivated! I did make brownies and cabbage soup. Boys did join in on the fun... one helped with with the brownies (to like the spoon I'm sure) The other little man helped chop veggies for soup. Turned out pretty good. Against my better judgement I did eat a sliver of brownie. Wasn't sure the outcome with tummy troubles, but seemed to be OK. Went over way better than the Boost I drank for breakfast! Yikes!! This whole gluten, sugar, wheat etc...etc... free food stuff gets aggravating! The result has been good as far as scales go, of course I weigh myself more because I spend more time in the bathroom (not good).

I'm not sure why, but Mr. Man seemed to be off his game this weekend and pretty obnoxious. I guess just like us adults, kiddo's can be quite out of sorts as well. That boy sure did test my nerves :D  Little Man was so tired today. Even his eyes said so. I think they were both pretty wiped out! We ran to town to window shop then got some ice cream at the Dairy Queen. That seemed to help. Got home, showers the night, night.

Now I am able to be home with my man...The BIG MAN. Yep, were showered and ready to settle down for the evening as well. It has been a long rough week for my amazing husband. Taking it to The Good Lord and hopefully he will give us an answer... what ever He feels best. 

So I guess it's time to put the posting to bed for now.


Hello Fall

Hello Fall in Indiana! I may be prejudice, but isn't Indiana like the best place to watch the changing of the seasons? Oh and our weather! I could keep it like this all year around and be totally content and happy. And don't get me started on all the fall decorations, yummy food and the smell of summer coming to an end. Ahhh...The joys of Indiana! Home sweet home!
