Random Tuesday Thoughts – I Wanna Live A Teenage Dream

I have been obsessed with the song 'Teenage Dream' by Katy Perry for a while now. It kind of reminds me of when life was simpler and I miss that. But if you have not heard it here is the video you can check out. [] I am also thinking about starting a more focused mom blog and keeping this as a just about me and stuff I think is cool or like. I … [Read more...]

I Hate Insomnia

It has been so frustrating lately that I can either stay up all night until I am dead tired or I have to resort to taking Tylenol PM to sleep. I wish I knew what to do, I am sure deep on the inside it is probably cause by stress and everything that I keep bottled up inside. And it probably would not be so bad if I had the drive to get anything done. I guess the only good would be that has come … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – First Day And Already Homework

Not so wordless today. This is my smarty boy, he thinks that if he gets all of his homework done in the car that it will give him more time to play World of Warcraft when we get home. Though I do have to say he is right, if he has it all done and no chores he does get to play. And since he has always done so well in school I let him go for it. … [Read more...]

Please Don’t Let This Be a Sign

Of how this year is going to be. It is only the second day of school and we already have our first note! And while I am a bit upset about it, I would be fooling myself if I didn't expect it at some point this year. But I am hoping it was just small stuff and maybe they were trying to point those things out early so they did not progress to bigger things throughout the year. They were … [Read more...]

Random Tuesday Thoughts – Don’t Know Where To Start

It has been a long and surreal week so far. One of the highlights is I will be going back to college in the very near future to finish my teaching degree. That is so exciting to me and I can't wait to get started. But to make this happen I no longer have a job and it will be ok. It gives me more time to build my blog and to attend school. So it will all work out and be for the … [Read more...]

Hard to believe he is 9 now!

Today my oldest boy turned 9, I know it isn't quite 10 or double digits yet.  But still it is still mind blowing that he is getting so big and old. I had a lot of fun today celebrating his birthday and I hope that he did too. Mostly because we did things somewhat differently this year. We actually started all of the celebrating at midnight. Yep we totally did. We actually didn't have his cake … [Read more...]

I have to have a Nintendo DSi XL

We actually just got one for Wes for his birthday and I have to say, I LOVE IT! For the little bit of time that he actually let me play with it, I immediately demanded that they get me one for Christmas. I like that it had an internet browser, the bigger screens, and of course the two cameras with the ability to upload pictures to your Facebook account. And that was all before I actually got to … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – I So Rock!

Not so wordless this week. So I was home alone and playing Rockband and this is the kind of stuff that happens. I start to record myself and yet am too shy to post the videos.  It must have been bad though my audience turned her back on me. Happy Wordless Wednesday! But I think I got a pose down! … [Read more...]

Who else is dreading Back to School Shopping?

I have no idea why but for some reason I am just feeling so intimidated by it. And it is not as if I it is my first year, it is my fifth year of buying school supplies for my own kids. But for some reason the thought of it is feeling very ominous right now. I will get over it though I suppose. And despite my dread I have decided that I am not going to be one those parents that at about a … [Read more...]
