Finding My Blog Identity

>> Saturday, March 1, 2008

I got interested in blogging a few months ago and have been feeling the waters ever since. I've mostly been posting about my family and every day life. I didn't really have a particular audience in mind, and I still don't really have one, just whoever wants to take a few minutes to read about my ordinary life. I think I'm finally starting to find myself in the blogesphere world and decided that I wanted to change my URL address as well as my title. So if you're reading this and are planning on sticking with me through thick and thin, then check out my semi-permanent blog here. I say "semi-permanent" because I'm a creature of indecisiveness and could very possibly change my mind again somewhere along the road.


I Am The Cookie Master

>> Thursday, February 28, 2008

Yesterday we got our Girl Scout cookies, all 10 boxes. TM wanted to get a case of Thin Mints, but we did NOT need a case of cookies in our house. Too much temptation. In the end our order was 2 boxes short of a case, but in addition to the thin mints we got a couple other flavors. I informed TM that, "I am the cookie master!" This was a necessary precaution to avoid eating all 10 boxes in one week. Some people in our household, who shall remain nameless, have a very bad habit of eating food straight out of the package and losing track of the calories they consume. We'll see how long we can make the cookies last.


5710 "VOTE"

>> Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Guess who I voted for last night. I think Randy nailed it right on the head when he said the teens are hot this year. I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I think David A has a real chance of being the next American Idol.


Love Triangle in Kindergarten?

>> Tuesday, February 26, 2008

A few weeks back, the week of Valentine's Day to be exact, I found out that a little girl in TJ's kindergarten class has a huge crush on him! I was relieved when I found out that's all it was because TJ was giving me the impression that he was having problems with a couple kids in his class hitting him and saying mean things to him. The problem surfaced because he refused to participate with the class Valentine's Day exchange.

Today I had a run in with the little girl's mom. I asked her if her daughter had been talking about TJ. She was very apologetic on her daughter's behalf. During this conversation I found out a little more than I wanted to know. There's a love triangle going on in kindergarten! TJ's friend likes a girl who likes TJ. There's more than one girl with a crush on my little boy…aaaaagggggh! Is this problem going to get progressively worse as he gets older? The good news is that I'm hearing good things about TJ's character. "He's such a nice little boy." Every mom wants to hear that about their son, but until he's old enough to appreciate the attention of the opposite sex, it could be his drawback.


We Finally Own a Wii!

>> Monday, February 25, 2008

Was it fate, or just dumb luck? I don't know, but TJ and I were in the right place at the right time. Well, let's back it up about 15 minutes. We just had our oil changed at Jiffy Lube and the employee and I somehow got to talking about the Wiis. He bought one for himself in November, and we've been searching for them since January. He was giving me some tips on how to get my hands on one. Then TJ and I mosey along to Wal Mart to get a few items, as planned. Whenever I'm there I swing by the electronics to see the empty shelf space where the Wiis are usually stocked (for about 20 minutes). Imagine my surprise when I spied 6 boxes sitting on the shelf! I walk over to the cashier and ask them if those boxes are empty or if they're the real deal. They had literally just restocked the shelf. I wasn't going to pass up on that opportunity, so I nabbed one. I don't know who was more excited, me or TJ. So far it's been worth the wait. I hope the novelty doesn't wear off too soon. I'll bet anything that now that we have ours I'll see the Wiis all over the place. Oh well, at least I'm out of THAT rat race now. What's next on the list?


Saturday Photo Hunt : "Wooden"

>> Saturday, February 23, 2008

Here's TJ and his wooden castle bank that we put together at one of the Home Depot Kids Workshops. I ended up doing most of the work and only had half a clue what I was doing. I think they need to have "Moms Workshops". Not only that, but you would think that a workshop being held in a hardware store would mean having functional tools to work with. We all had to share 2 or 3 screwdrivers that weren't even the right size! What do you expect for free?


Make It Stop!

I was in Chuck E. Cheese's with the boys for about 10 minutes when the urge to scream, "Make it stop!" took over! The games were dinging and blinging, the music was playing on the loud speakers, and the chatter of customers was ringing in my ears. Now I know what an over stimulated baby or child feels like. It's not as if it was extra chaotic for a pizza parlor, it was just the extra noise buzzing in the background that was getting on my every nerve! I didn't care if the boys still had tokens left; one hour was ALL I could take! Suffice it to say that I will NOT be doing this again anytime soon. The boys think Daddy will take them. Good luck with that one.
