I don't know that I'm going to be posting for a bit. I'm not feeling up to par lately and just not in the mood to talk or be happy. I haven't even been taking pictures and that's well just odd for me.

Well nothing new to report over here. Things have for once been rather boring. I got my new steam cleaner from my mom that was supposed to be my birthday present but Samantha decided to smear pooh on the floor. It's nice and cleans out the dirt from the carpet pretty well but not the stains. I need to get some spot spray and hopefully that helps. If not I might be taking it back which I really don't want to do.
I bought Samantha's Halloween outfit today. I'm so excited to see her in it. I'm going to try to get to the Halloween store and pick up Jr's and then to the mall for Shawn's unless I find something better there. I can't believe my little baby will be two and Jr will be five! Where the heck has all the time gone.

Friday Five

Five things I am gratefull for

1. My husband-he is my rock, the love of my life
2. My children-they remind me that everyday is wonderful and to cherish it with them
3. My family-they help keep me smiling
4. My friends-they are here for me when I need then and visa versa
5. To be alive-so I can cherish all these things I just listed

Train Collision 09/12/08

I'm sure many of you heard about the train accident that happened yesterday in the Chatsworth Park area. It is so devastating to see something like this happen and to know it was from human error makes it worse. My dads secretary's daughters fiance was on that train. We all prayed from the moment we heard that he was okay. We sadly got news last night that they found his body in the first train. He was only 18 years old. I didn't know this kid but I cried. It just broke my heart. This poor kid is never going to be able to marry the girl he loves and raise a family with her and his family wont be able to watch him grow into a man. He was ripped from this world to early. Please keep his family and his fiances family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you everyone.

Here is a link to the story they published in the local paper today

They have hit my household full force! First it was me with a sore throat then Steve got it and turns out he has strep throat then Sam started running a temp, went up to 102.8 today and I think she has strep also and I have a pounding headache and have been getting NO sleep. I hope Shawn isn't getting sick cause he isn't sleeping. Only one still normal is Jr. Sickies leave my house!!!!!

Mil is here

I am so happy to report that when my mil walked in the door the kids went right to her with open arms! I was really surprised of Samantha because she normally isn't like and I know that made my mil's day. She went to Jr's soccer practice with Steve while I stayed home with Samantha and Shawn. And I'm excited Jr's first game is this Saturday. Kind of wish it wasn't at 8:00 am. But I can't wait to see my little guy playing, it's going to be so cute!

So much to do...

And so freaking little time! I have to bust ass, and I mean some serious busting ass today and clean. I haven't been in the mood to clean the past two days. I get tired of doing the same thing over and over and over everyday and it never staying nice for longer then five minutes. So I went on a mini strike. So now it looks like a tornado hit my home.
Lets see, what do I need to do.
1. Dishes
2. Vacuum
3. Laundry, omg so much freaking laundry
4. Figure out what to do with my last three boxes!
5. Clean of computer desk
6. Sort mail, make files for bills and file them away
7. Mop the kitchen floor again
8. Oh yeah got to shower some time today
I hope that's it. I'm probably forgetting something, I tend to do that. Oh and tomorrow is going to be a crazy day. Shawn has his newborn screening appointment at 10am, then I need to take him for the blood screening after that, then run over and apply for a social security card for him. Oh and mil is coming somewhere in between all this so Steve is going to have to drop me off because our car wont hold one more person. Ah, crazy world I call my life. Okay I better get started on my to do list.

My husband

The happiest day of my life is when I became your wife

We have had our rough times, heck what marriage doesn't but I love him. He is my world. I don't know what I would do without him. We had a long talk today and opened up to each other and realized some things we could do to improve ourselves and I am excited to take this next step in our lives. As many of you my friends we are under A LOT of stress right now and I know that can take a toll on us but I think in a way it is helping bring us closer and stronger. I love that we can hash it out and at the end of it still love each other as much as we did before, if not more. We have always been like that and value that so much about our relationship. We are not the traditional husband and wife, we don't do things as everyone else always would but being different makes us special :)
Ok, done spilling my guts about how much I am in love with my husband. Off to bed.

Here I am

I'm here and I'm Not really. But I'm trying to get back into blogging more often. I have been in a funk lately and there's so many things on my mind but I just can't open up with the world and tell it. It's way to personal.
So anyways, moving on. My mother in-law will be coming to visit us on Thursday. I'm looking forward to it and not looking forward to it at the same time. I love her but she can be a downer a lot. I'm not going to let her get me or Steve down though. I hope the kids aren't scared/shy around her. Sometimes, well especially with Samantha, they can take a little bit to warm up to people and since it's been what I think over a year since they've seen her it might be hard for them. If it is I do not want to hear it from her. This is where she is a downer. She will get upset that they don't like her but what does she expect. She never comes out to see them. She has a hell of a lot easier time coming out to see us then us traveling with three kids and hoping Steve has a day off.
Ok I don't want to talk about that subject again. Moving onto happier things. Samantha is a little fireball. I swear if I get grey hair it's her She is such a mischievous little bugger. She went into their room to I thought play and this is how I found her.
While we were at my parents she was "fishing" and the little bugger wouldn't stay away from the edge of the pool. She was scaring the crap out of me.
Oh and I can see into the Here's a pic of my LITTLE girl walking in her aunties stiletto heels.
