Things Pissin Me Off Today

A post completely dedicated to bitchin telling you how I feel...I think yes. It's been one of those days already and it's not even noon.

  • Being woke up before it's even light out. Seriously children!?! Do you know what time it is (insert smart ass comment from my 4yo----it's 8:30 mom) Yeah! Totally glad you know how to tell time. It's not even close to that.
  • Feeling like I have to repeat myself 50 million damn times!! Example---I headed outside to let the dog out and when I came back in, AD had picked B up out of her cradle and stuck her in AN's doll cradle...Can you say heart attack?!?! I've tried explaining to this child SEVERAL times that he cannot pick her up. Do you think he gets that?? of course not!
  • Looking for new blogs to stalk this morning and coming across a blog with a black background and white text..Do you know what this does to my eyes?? So much for stalking you.......
  • Cartoons. Am so very sick of cartoons. One day without having to watch them would be like heaven around here.
  • Cold coffee. Could I ever enjoy one cup of WARM coffee before I have to start my day. By the time I finally sit down to take a drink of it, it tastes like someone took a bottle of water and dumped it in my cup.
  • The weather today is freezing. It's probably going to rain and it feels like it's about 50 degrees outside. Last time I checked it's still August, not October (Although I cant complain too least I'm not dealing with the hurricane)
If you're still with me sorry this post is a rant today. Just needed to vent. 

I am also now taking applications for a maid service. Anyone?? Anyone?? No...okay guess it's back to doing this house by myself!!
Happy Saturday everyone!

Have you ever been in the middle of a really good dream? The graphics, the people, the event...everything seems so very real, like you are there. Just as the dream starts to get to the most suspenseful part......something awakes you from sleep!

This morning, roughly around 7AM I was in the middle of a very intense dream. There was a tornado going on in my neighborhood and I was trying to save all my kids and get them to a safe place. (This is thanks to not having a damn basement in my house) As I was loading the kids in the car, backing out of the driveway and driving up town to get to a safe place, I hear a cry. B is in the backseat, wailing. She's hungry or needs her diaper changed, but my goal is to get all the kids to safety, then I will be able to deal with B.

The crying snaps me out of fantasy and back into reality where I realize that B is awake in her cradle and I was dreaming. So I stumbled out of bed, changed her diaper, feed her and put her back to sleep. (This is one morning when AD and AN are still in bed so I might get to sleep in a little bit) As I lay her back down to go to sleep, I try so very hard to go back to sleep so as to continue my dream in the same spot I left it in.

As I start dozing off I hear.."Mom, mom?" WOOHOO! Here comes the dream.........nope. Just AD getting out of bed coming to find me this morning to get him some breakfast. Guess the dream will have to wait until tonight. Hopefully my mind lets me finish it!

Anyone else have this problem where they have been in the middle of a dream and cant finish it because something interrupts you?

Three is Different Than Two

How different is it now with three kids instead of two? After hearing this question for several weeks, I really sat down and thought about it.

What I've learned about having three kids..

1. Sleep when baby sleeps--this no longer're lucky if you will sleep at all.

2. Find time for yourself--I dont know about anyone else but I don't have the TIME for time to myself. Between changing diapers, bottle feedings, dishes, laundry, and finding time to keep the older two kids preoccupied-- there isn't enough hours in the day.

3. Time disappears--Before I had B, my nights consisted of supper, baths, stories, bed and then M and I could sit and
watch TV, talk about our days, or I could catch up on my, I am lucky if I am sitting down on the couch
before 9PM.

4. You depend on older kids---Although AD is only four and AN is only three, I depend on them a lot more now to help me with stuff. For example "Holler at me if your sister starts to cry" "Can you run and get me a diaper" "Can you go throw this away for mommy?"  Is this helpful? Yes! But before we had B, the other two kids didn't have to help with other stuff...just handled their own things....I do lie and blame this on "bonding" for the kids. It's a lie and I know it:)

5. Shopping or traveling--It is now nearly IMPOSSIBLE to take a trip anywhere without pulling my hair out. Grant it yes, I was pulling my hair out with two, but before I could stick AD and AN in the cart and not worry about them getting out. There is not a cart big enough for three kids and groceries, so the solution? One child has to walk. Then the other child wants to walk. This leaves me chasing two children around the store, trying to push a cart, and carry a baby in my arms while trying to feed her! AWESOME!!

6. Cars---I no longer can drive my nice little red car....I've moved up to a mini van. Not that I mind vans but I miss my car something terrible!!!

7. Money--I think this is always an issue with any parent regardless of the amount of children you have. We were struggling before with two, but now with the oh man! Having me go to work isn't an option either because seriously who can afford $7.50 an hour to put three kids in daycare. Not this chick!

So are you still wondering how different is it now with three kids instead of two??

Not Quite Down The Aisle

Natalie over at Mommy of a Monster is doing this fun link up called Down The Aisle. Now although I'm not married to M yet, I wanted to share my favorite photo. The photo I am sharing is from M's step brother's wedding last April.

I LOVE this picture. The photographer they had for their wedding did an amazing job. The reason this picture is my favorite.....One of the reasons I fell in love with M was for the way he makes me laugh. It's just me and him lost in the moment in this picture.

I can't wait to marry this man!!

Guilty Pleasures


So today I am linking up with Listography over at Kate Takes 5. This week is all about guilty pleasures so here's five of mine.

Guilty Pleasure #1-Tyler Perry
Man oh man do I love this man! I have seen every single Tyler Perry movie and love everyone of them. They give such great perspectives on life and crappy situations. I would give anything to meet him in person.

Guilty Pleasure #2- General Hospital and One Life To Live
Every afternoon after lunch time I spend time catching up on my soaps. That's the best part to me about nap time. Thank heaven for DVR since I'm usually a week behind on these shows. I know a lot of people think that soap operas are stupid. The reason I love them, it fulfills my need for drama...Drama that doesn't pertain to my life:)

Guilty Pleasure #3- Shoes
Probably my biggest guilty pleasure is shoes. If you ask the boyfriend, these are just junk things that take up space in the closet, under the bed, in the doorway and a big waste of money. I love every style, brand, and color. My outfit always has to match my shoes otherwise I feel like I'm mismatched.

Guilty Pleasure #4- Ramen Noodles
I know, I know. Seriously?!?! Ramen Noodles? But they are the BEST! This is my lunch every day. I started eating them when I was probably about 5 years old. My mother used to make them all the time when I was younger for lunch, sometimes even for supper. I see now why she did. Do you know how easy it is to make these noodles? So easy! I usually just throw them in a bowl of water and stick them in the microwave for about ten minutes. Was my number one craving when I was pregnant with B.

Guilty Pleasure #5- Eyeliner
So I'm not really a big make up fan. I might get all dolled up with the stuff if I'm going out and about some where but I don't apply it every day or anything. I don't have the time nor patience to paste stuff on my face. BUT I do take the time to apply eyeliner almost every day. Not sure what it is about the stuff, but I love the way it makes my eyes look.

Head on over and link up! This is a great listography this week!

Blog On Fire Award

I have been slacking terribly on my blog lately, but while I had some down time today I was over visiting Destiny at Rockin Mama. Check her out, she totally rocks my damn socks!!! But anyways, I was honored to see that she awarded me with the blog on fire award. I thought this was pretty damn cool! MY FIRST BLOG AWARD:):) 
So now I am suppose to share a few things about me....

1. I am twenty one years old, currently pregnant with my third child. *go ahead and roll eyes here..i'm used to it*
2. My birthday is 13 days away and counting! WOOHOO
3. I will be FINALLY having my daughter no later than Monday the 8th, thanks to a lovely thing they call induction!
4. I am busting my ass to get back into school and finish my nursing degree. Not working out the way I would  like it to be.
5. I was married. For a year. Biggest mistake of my life.
6. I love soap operas. 
7. I'm hoping to quit smoking within the next week. *fingers crossed*

That's all I got for now. Trying to get stuff prepared for this baby and now the other two children have ventured back in from outside, so no more down time for me.
