Yeah for the Weekend!

I am so ready for the weekend. And the fact that it is a long one. We have been so super busy I'm having a hard time keeping up already. Does everyone have big plans for the weekend? Saturday my new baby nephew is having his baptism, Sunday Tori is getting baptized. This is such a big deal. She has really been understanding more lately and asking so many questions about God and how things work and I am so happy that she "gets it"! She is really excited and has called to invite our whole family. Then we'll eat lunch afterwards. AND I bought a new ginormous washing machine that is supposed to be here either Monday or Tuesday and I can't hardly wait! Hope you all have a great weekend.

Holy Crap Batman...

so much going on I have totally neglected my blog. You would think I was on vacation again or something. But sadly NO! It sounds like everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I am so glad. I did as well. Here is a pic of Tori, Nate & I on the beautiful day. Anyways, besides test driving everything Kevin has for sale, going to ball practices, band-a-rama, shopping, Mother's Day and field trips not alot else going on. Like that isn't enough. Today Tori had a field trip and I took off from work to go with her. You don't know how much it I love having a job now where I can do that. We walked to her teacher's house and were outside all day. Walked to the River, had a cook out, did the whole nature thing and then walked back to the school. So in all it was a total of 5 miles. FFFFFIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVEEEEEEEE555555555555555555! No exaggeration here. My little body was not tired one bit, like my feet hurting or anything else but by the time I got home I was whipped. I couldn't believe it. It was like my age (god forbid) is starting to catch up to me. I couldn't hardly believe it but I had to stop and rest a little while. A whole 30 minutes to be exact and then it was off to the park to take our family picture that we take at this time every year and then to my mom's for cake and ice cream (so much for the 5 miles) and a little get together for my cousin who is turning 17 today. She was telling us how yesterday was the senior's last day at school and some of them let 50 baby chicks go in the school. How hilarious is that. Not to funny for the main culprit. They are not letting him walk on Sunday at graduation because of his stunt. What kind of BS is that?? They have to expect it and you know he didn't do it himself but he is the only one being punished. I would so be protesting. Anyway...hope you all have a great weekend. Keri...I will be thinking of you!!

What a Night!

I can't believe the night I had. Nothing like Welcome Home Amy! Ever since we have been home Nate has been jumping off the walls. My kids have been crazy. Like cocaine or something running through there veins. You can tell they are on THEIR turf. So last night after dinner and cleaning my kitchen and starting a load of laundry I laid down on the couch for just a minute. Nate climbs up there and lays down beside me. He gets up for a minute and Tori comes running over to take his spot. Which naturally makes him mad because he does not A) want her laying beside me B) It's his spot and HIS pillow! So he comes over and throws a fit! So she moves. After 2 or 3 times of this I tell them to knock it off before someone gets hurt! So one more time (because my kids don't listen to anything I say) and they both come running at me and Nate head butts me in the mouth. Like it completely split open on the inside. Meat hanging! I had blood everywhere. I couldn't get it to stop bleeding. So now I am crying like a baby because I was pissed and hurt and couldn't stand it. Tori is crying Nate is in the middle trying to figure out what is going on. I had to call my mom who wasn't home---how dare she---so I called my grandma, got her frazzled, called my Aunt to come over (which I really didn't want to do, but desperate times call for desperate measures). So she comes over and helps doctor me and get control of my kids. In the mean time Grandma had started in to the house to see what was going on and ran into my parents so here they come and grandma went back home. Talk about drama. All over my bleeding mouth. But today it is nice and swollen and looks awful! Anyways...maybe that will keep me from eating. Hope you all are having a better day!
