Where are you?

Where are you?
I know you stopped by last week. There is evidence everywhere!
The trees are green...the grass is green....there are even little flowers popping up everywhere!
It warmed up so nicely! I even enjoyed the rain showers since it wasn't freezing outside!
That was a terribly mean trick you played!
Please come back!!!

Bag Tag! You're It!!

I was tagged by Donella at So Not Domestic to do a bag tag. She tagged me back in February and I'm just now getting this up. If you look closely at the pictures you WILL see that they were taken last month! Unfortunately if I'm playing by the rules, I can't go grab anything cuter So I'm using pics of my handy dandy diaper bag! Yay! NOT!!

Here are the rules for the tag:

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today.

2) I want to know how much it cost. :) And this is not to judge, this is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

3) Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your diaper bag/non-diaper bag.

I don't even know how much this cost. I'm sure under $20. My mom bought it for me right before or shortly after Taylor was born. (Holy moly that was almost 6 1/2 years ago!!) I didn't use it too much with Tay because I had several other diaper bags as well. I think I used it maybe once with Dakoda and then put it away. I ended up using it with Hayleigh because it is actually very well made. The one we recieved from the hospital tore where the strap attaches to the bag. Didn't last very long at all!

Crazy I know! How does one live with a bag filled like this? I guess I don't pay attention to it until I'm digging around trying to find something! You just never know, you may need a dollar, some playdoh and a headband!!

I'm just gonna say this is an open tag and if you want to participate go ahead!! I'd love to see how much better all of your bags or purses are!! LOL

WANTED: A Good Friend

I am happily married to my best friend and mommy to my four wonderful daughters. I am looking for someone to be my friend.
Yes, I already have several. But they ALL live so far away. I don't have anyone here. I've tried.......there is one gal who I thought was going to work out because it all seemed like perfect timing....but I am quickly realizing there are problems in this relationship and I am very slowly trying to work my way out of it.
I've finally realized that I do not need to put up with somebody who:

  1. puts me down all the time.
  2. Makes sarcastic remarks to me ALL the time! (don't get me wrong, I like to 'josh' around, but I'm not nasty about it!)
  3. is nasty to my kids (that's my job! I feel like slime when mean things slip out of my mouth at MY kiddos, I don't want anyone else doing it!!)
  4. tells a story about a special needs child she use to work with and then makes the remark that I probably don't know what the average IQ of somebody is (Hello, lady! IQ was 135 when I was 14!!! It's not easy playing dumb!)
  5. doesn't like the way I am parenting and proceeds to tell me about it!(her kids are going to need therapy when she's done!)
  6. talks trash about ALL the things her husband does and how they are wrong (at least her husband washes dishes and picks up the kid's toys!) ((Sean's been helping this week so I won't complain about him!))
  7. EVERYTHING is that man's fault through her eyes, but from the outside looking in, I'm thinking she has ALOT to do with it!
  8. and a whole lot of other things that have slipped my mind at the moment!

Now that I've finally gotten that out, I guess I should call her and break up with her!!

I just want to tell my friends that are reading this, if I have EVER done any of the things on this list to you....I am SORRY with ALL OF MY HEART!
This hurts and sucks and hurts some more. People should NOT treat others this way.

I know this probably seems like a desperate cry for friendship, but I really just wanted to blog about this and get it off my chest! Everyone here in bloggyland seems to be so understanding of that!
Anymore thoughts on how I should handle this would be greatly appreciated.
Julie, thanks for your input, I have to see her tonight, and we will see how that goes.

Another Birthday!

Yesterday my 3rd baby turned 3!! I can't believe how fast the past 3 years have gone by. (I know every mother says that....but isn't it so true?)
I remember the 2 false trips to the hospital and then having to be scheduled for an induction.
It snowed a little on the drive to the hospital that morning. We arrived at the hospital late. I was scheduled for 6am and didn't get there till 6:15. The nurse was a little short with me I almost forgot to have Sean take my 'before delivery' pic. I had my sheet on already and then I waddled back into the bathroom to put my shirt and pants back on so he could take my picture.
Finally, I was nurse started hooking me up to everything and started the 'pit' around 7am. There was a swarm of student nurses at the hospital that day and they ALL wondered if they could take part in this miracle! Why not? I said. I'd already birthed 2 babies and I wasn't as shy any more! ha! I labored pretty quickly. I let them crank the pit up as much as they would dare. It hurt like you wouldn't believe but I wasn't one to be in labor for hours! I did that with Madison....Taylor was quick and I wanted this to be as short and sweet as possible! Around 9am I felt ready to push so everyone swarmed in and started getting everything ready. I remember 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' was on. Between contractions my doctor would turn around and watch the show and answer the questions. She was answering one question and I practically shouted....I HAVE TO PUSH NOW!!!! So she turned back around and caught Dakoda!! at 9:26am.
I haven't told too many people this, actually my husband, doctor and nurses are the only ones who have known this up until now......but you know how most people are afraid of pooping while having a baby? Well, I was over that fear since this was my 3rd. But who would've thought you'd pee all over your doctor?? Not me in a million years did that thought ever cross my mind!! Until a Thursday morning on March 23rd 2006 at 9:20ish am. I had fluids running through my body for the previous 2 hours and nobody ever thought once to ask me if I needed to go the bathroom. Well, there was that one push I gave and Dr. Warner got a shower!!!! How embarrassing was that?? So, now world, you know my pee-pee story!!

Back to who this post is really about.......
Yesterday was a horrible day. Dakoda cried, screamed and cried some more. I think that maybe she was already 'birthdayed out'. We had a little party here before we went to MO and then we had 2 while we were visiting. By the time it got to the 'real day' she was done!
I did get her calmed down for a little bit with an ice cream cone!!

Happy Birthday my little Princess!!! I love you!!!!

On the Road Again!!

Actually it's been 2 months, but time sure does fly around here.
We are going to visit family this coming week since it is spring break.
We will be celebrating the two little girls birthdays and I'm sure I'll be pissing some people off because I won't be spending equal amounts of time with them. Plus, I have to pay the money we owe!
I haven't talked about that in a long time because I have found my piece with it and we are just going to pay him, I'm going to have him write me a receipt of payment and we are never borrowing or owing him any money again!!!

So if you want to see me, give me a call and I'll try to meet you somewhere. (Yes, I'm talking to you Julie!)

We will not be back until next Sunday evening. I will not get to blog and will probably be behind on reading everyone's amazing posts because my mother still has dial-up. I cringe at the thought of how much farther I'm going to be behind! Will I ever get out of this hole??
Not to mention I have started babysitting again and that really takes away from my computer time!!
Everybody have a good week and I better finish more like finish start packing because I'm wanting to leave in less than 2 hours. I really don't see that happening.

I'm Sooooo Behind!!!!!!

It's been over a week since my last post and I can't seem to make the time to get it done!!!
There is soooo much I've been doing and that has happened......I have pictures sitting on my camera I need to put up....I made a pettiskirt for Hayleigh and I need to start Dakoda's.......My baby had her 1st house is a disaster area and I just don't want to clean it up......(it's just easier to keep throwing more on the pile instead of putting it away!).....and the cloth diapers arrived in the mail Friday and we've been successful with that since Saturday............I collected quite a bit of cookie money from the other moms that needs to be deposited in the bank.......Hayleigh is getting angry in the highchair at this moment because she is out of Blueberries and I'm typing........I don't want to go to a playdate today because I am tired of the way the 'smothering-mother' treats my baby.............I've already missed two weeks of playdates with her and I just don't have a good excuse today!!............I need to clean my house up because I start babysitting next week and I don't want more to be piled up on top of what 'already is'!! (If that makes since?)

Okay, off to soothe the crying one and get ready to leave!!! Blah!
