Bang, sorry mommy.

Anyone else have rowdy kids? What am I saying, if you don't have a rowdy kid you make me want to cry. Alicia loves to intentionally knock over her brother. She thinks it is the funniest thing in the world. It usually ends up with Levi in tears and a bump on his head. Today she knocked him over while riding HIS zebra scooter. She also threw a laundry basket on him while I was changing his diaper. It makes me soooooooo MAD!!! She knows better!

Alicia also loves to color anything in a rainbow I'll have to take a picture and post it on here. I can't believe the time she takes to color these pictures as she does. Her teachers talk about it too.

Thanksgiving is this week. I have a lot to be thankful for. One of the things I am NOT thankful for is the Facebook 30 days of thankfulness. I want to punch you in the throat. Post one day of 30 things. That is all it takes. OR Post it in a note and tag the 30 friends you want to be thankful for that month.

My house was volunteered this year by my mother in law to host Thanksgiving. I have a bunch of things wrong with that. She insisted on buying table runners, placemats, a serving platter, decorative candles for my table alone. She also wants to buy us hallway tables to decorate.... I DON'T NEED MORE STUFF TO CLEAN!! I can't keep my house clean as it is! Don't give me more places for stuff to accumulate! She has also taken the liberty to plan the entire meal and buy the turkey. WTF am I suppose to do?!?! If she wanted to do this shit we could have done it AT her house and SHE could have cleaned up afterward. UGHHHHHHH. If you want me to host it LET ME DO IT MY WAY.

I have decided that for Christmas, I am asking Santa for a gift card to the liquor store, the deed to a winery or to successfully pull off a weeks surprise vacation that  my husband is planning for my birthday/anniversary.

Oh, and 6 year old boys talk A LOT.

Are you fracking kidding me?!

I embarked on a new adventure this week. Much less scary than I originally thought. I am watching a friend's son after school for a few hours. He is 6 and he is the sweetest boy ever.

 Alicia on the other hand, loves him to pieces and has started peeing in her panties when playing with him because it is inconvenient for her to stop. ARE YOU FRACKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!? You can play with 13 kids during school with toys that are not yours but you will PEE at your own house!?!? COME ON. NO more regressions. I am SOOOO tired of going through so many pairs of panties during the day!!!!! Night time has gotten much better now you have to pee while playing HOLY CRAP CHILD go buy your own diapers if you want to be a baby. Rob your piggy bank. I have a non-potty trained kid. HE IS AN ACTUAL BABY. PEE IN THE TOILET.


I eat turkey I eat turkey, yes I do, Yes I do, Turkey in my tummy, yummy yummy yummy, I eat turkey. (To the theme of where is thumbkin.) You are welcome for getting it stuck in your head too. Mean old preschool.

I haven't been on much for a few reasons (excuses again) When I charge my laptop, my husband steals it to watch Netflix downstairs while he searches the internet. I have also been waiting for this sickness crap to finally exit my house so I can get back to running again. ALSO shark-week still isn't on a fracking schedule yet and I would love to kick it in the face for that.

Levi is officially a walker now (2 1/2 weeks in) and is attempting to run already. I am not like most moms, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stage. I love not having to carry them around all the time! Now the talking (back) I could wait for! He can grow up until now, but now he needs to slow down and stay my sweet cuddle monster.

Alicia is learning so much at school its creepy! She came home yesterday singing the theme song from "Happy Days" telling me she knew all the days of the week. NOW that song is stuck in my head. (You're welcome) If not, Sunday Monday HAPPY DAYS, Tuesday Wednesday HAPPY DAYS, Thursday Friday, HAPPY DAYS, Saturday 7 days, Grooving all week with you!!! ((bahahaha))

My husband has informed me that he is surprising me for my birthday for 7 kid free days somewhere doing something! The catch is, I have to find a place for them to bug someone else for 7 days! Let me know if you want a day, or 7. :-)

I am also suppose to talk to my sister about this trip too since she will have to coach a game, possibly two without me.... oops, I should call her now before she reads this.

Alicia is off from school on Wednesdays. She woke up today, went down stairs and my husband let me sleep until 10!!! HOLY MOLY!!!! He then proceeded to make me breakfast before going upstairs to bed. I think that must have set the tone for today.  My children were well behaved, with great attitudes. The yelling done today was at the dogs. We cleaned Alicia's room, I put her bed up on the top bunk so we will see how sleeping up high does.

I am thankful for my mom and my sister for they came and raided my halloween candy stash and it is now mostly gone (thanks to the chocolate thief Gloria.) 

I don't really have much more to say today, I hate that I am this exhausted today it worries me that I may be getting sick AGAIN.

Screw Wine

Today was one of those horrible days that by 5 o'clock you want to scream, cry, kick a brick wall. I know my blood pressure was through the roof because I felt like my eyes wanted to pop out of their sockets. It was a bunch of tiny things of course.

Getting Alicia to pick up her toys and shoes is as fun as pulling the tooth off a chigger. I hate repeating myself. HATE. I do it all day long. 

I tried to make hair bows today. MAJOR FAIL.

Today was Alicia's picture day at school. She was absent yesterday so I didn't get to see the flyer to remind myself so she wasn't dressed in anything special and her hair was down. I didn't get to run today. Or go to the library. My debit card stopped working. That was fun. 

By the time Jon woke up I was ready for straight shots. Screw the wine. Bring on the hard stuff. (Sadly I didn't drink anything, should have... still might...)

I have been training for a 10K in February, which for those of you that know me and how over weight I am might think I'm joking. Nope. I'm not. I've gotten to 2.5 miles per run, moving it up to 3 miles tomorrow. Taking training advice and starting a "long run" habit on the weekend. Trying to figure out how long to start with.

I really wish I had a great neighbor next door that I could hang out with. Or across the street where there is a house for sale. Move in people. Be my friend. I always have wine!!!''

Stuck in snot

I hate the endless cycle of getting sick and staying sick. With two kids it now seems inevitable. One person gets sick and passes it along, making its way around our entire family and back to the person of origin. Alicia is sick again. She never kicked the runny nose from two weeks ago, and is now coughing, won't eat, a friend brought me popsicles since I couldn't get her to drink anything and is now running a fever. Kid  number one in my bed tonight. I'm hoping Levi will sleep well too, we all need major rest to get this crud out of my house.

Soccer is over YAY! I mean soooo sad. I am not a soccer person. I know Alicia had fun up until the last two weeks where she was just done, but I can't wait for her to be in something I enjoy too. I think gymnastics might be up next. We discussed dance and Karate but I think her attention span and energy level of standing still for a class might be a little too challenging.

Halloween is officially over... Kind of. LOL. Levi's birthday party is going to be a monster bash in December so that is going to be a blast. Its my way of keeping the Halloween spirit going!!

I have no triple A batteries in my house, why would I? All loud and obnoxious toys take double A's, those I have 100 of. No batteries means crapped out thermometer. I was just informed that there "is an app for that" I shit you not. There is, I can't find one that doesn't have an attachment required or doesn't cost 10.00.... but wow.

Off to sleep after downing emergen-c, I'm not a happy sick person. If I can dodge it, that would be fantastic, last time sucked monkey balls.

Those brave enough

I would like to start off by saying a HUGE thank you to my daughters two preschool teachers. I have loved them all year, and gained even more respect for them today after helping with their fall festival today. Alicia goes to school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. The kid size goes between 14 and 6 for those four days. She comes home and is talking about how much she loves her teachers, and they do a fantastic job sending home daily progress reports on what they learned, how much they eat and if they napped. I cannot imagine being a preschool teacher. Not even for a week. Those brave enough I more than commend you, I tip my hat to you and demand that you ask for a raise. Playing 100 questions with Alicia all day is a blast. (If you don't have a three year old borrow one for a week ((LEGALLY PLEASE)) I can't even imagine playing it with 14 kids all day for 5 days a week. These ladies are angels I have decided that I need to win the lottery and give these ladies a huge chunk of it. Kudos to preschool teachers. You have my utmost respect.

The fall festival was a blast, I had Levi so juggling him during his nap time and watching Alicia have a blast with her friends equaled one another out. Seeing her huge smile when she saw me during their parade just made my day. She had no idea we stayed for it. I volunteered to help pass out candy at one of 5 trick or treat stations (which was a blast since Levi knows what suckers are) We wrapped it up, Levi and I met a friend who gave us an amazing amount of boy clothes that I can't thank here enough for. We had lunch with my mom and sister and her friend from Ohio. Went home, fed and changed Levi, put him down for a much needed nap and picked Alicia up from school.

Home from school, played, made a snack, went to Alicia's final soccer practice for this year which was bitter sweet. Her last game is Saturday and hopefully she will feel like playing. I plan on bribing her LOL. Bring out the money!!

Came home ate dinner, at this point Alicia is beyond sleepy and freezing. Bathe her, read her a story and put her to bed.

 Fun day planned tomorrow. Laundry (yay) Pictures, trick or treating at my moms work, and something else I know I have planned but I didn't write it on my calender so I guess I'm just waiting for someone to text me mad saying I stood them up for something. Oh Well. Shit happens.

Best Present Ever

A day dealing with someone's snot other than your own makes you thankful for your husband waking up and allowing you to take a long hot UNINTERRUPTED shower. We had a good day today. I was able to convince Alicia to watch Sabrina the Teenage Witch Cartoon and she loved it. (Hopefully no more Pingu or Calliou!!)

Going to sleep praying for 8 uninterrupted hours. (PLEASE SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT LEVI, YOU AND I BOTH NEED IT)
