I hate Fall

Not because of the weather, but because I get sick every stinkin' fall.  And for the last few days, I've been super dizzy when I lie down, and yesterday, I started getting a sore throat.  Today, my ears started itching inside, and I'm getting sniffly.  Yup- I'm sick.  So I am planning on making my chicken noodle soup to help nip this crap in the bud, so I'm not sicker than I am already.  I'll pick some stuff up from Target tomorrow, hopefully that will help!

Things I've learned in my 30 something years....

*Never never shake a baby.  Duh, but that stupid commercial gets stuck in my head every freaking time I hear it.

*Mom and Dad are always right.  Never doubt it- they've lived longer.

* Never ever work for someone else's family business.  Unless it's run like an actual business, not one of those where mom and daughter get into a fight during service hours, and daughter runs to the office to cry for 2 hours.  Yeah, I had the second one. 

* As much as you think differently when you're first married, eventually, you do realize you married his entire family as well.  Sometimes that's good.  Sometimes it's not. I'm not telling on that one.

* You can never have enough plastic bins or bookcases.

*Facebook is NEVER the place to tell bad news or good news.  Your wife is pregnant?  Call the family, don't let them find out via a status update.  Mom died?  Phone call, thanks!

*Same thing goes for texts.  Actually call the people and TELL them.

* You can never over use the words 'I love you'.  Tell those you love often.

New recipes I want to try

I really want to try something with Squash and apples next week.  I was stocking baby food at work the other day, and saw that combination, and was like, yummy!  So that means I get to start looking for recipes with that, and try them out!!  Whoo!!


It has been a rough week in riding the bus for our little kindergartener.  I'd like to report that for the last TWO days, he's been very calmly riding the bus, and has been super excited to go to school!!  YAY!!!  I'm so happy about this- he's been fighting riding the bus, and all last week, *Charlie has been having to drive him to school.  Yesterday, I got off work early, so we could try a new trick to get him on the bus, and it worked!  Today, we did something similar, and it worked again!  So now we'll see how tomorrow goes- but it looks like it worked, so we're good to go!!

*Not his real name.  Names that have been changed will be marked with an asterisk the first time it is used.

My Random Monday thoughts...

Yes, I know it's usually Fragment Friday, but I was pretty tired on Friday, so I neglected it....

* I hate 90 degree weather.  I am so ready for fall, or at least cooler weather, so I can buy cool  new jeans that actually fit me.  

* I wish I wasn't so blasted tired all. the. time.

* The Colts game was awesome- even though they lost. :)

* My dream house is on the market again, and it's a $10,000 price drop as well.  Makes me wonder what's wrong with it, and how much money it would cost to renovate it.  That leads me to my next question- can we do it? And get a loan?  This house is awesome.

*My little boy finally got on the bus today without his daddy.  He's been having to take him to school while I'm at work.

* Concert this weekend.  And, I have a day off tomorrow.  Whoot!!

Football is back!!

So this morning, my husband called as I was doing my running, and told me that he was given 3 Colts preseason tickets for tonight's game!  Now, I bleed Blue, I've been a huge Colts fan since 1994 when I came to Butler as a freshman.  So I'm crazy excited about going, and cannot wait to see it tonight.  I know that it's just a preseason game, and no starter is probably going to play, but that's fine, I'm just thrilled about going!

It's also pretty cool, because it's the first home game of the season, and this season is important, because the Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis this year.  My husband and I are volunteering at the game, and there is a kick off meeting being held in a few weeks, where we can start signing up for shifts.  Super excited about that, I can't wait to find out what we are able to do.  It's going to be an awesome experience- how many 7 year olds can say they had the Super Bowl in their town, and they got to participate in all the activities beforehand, and their parents volunteered? Yeah, that's cool.  

I will be sure to post pictures tomorrow of everything!

Second Day of Kindergarten

Was not so good for my little guy.  My husband said that he had to drive him to school this morning, because he wouldn't get on the bus.  When I asked him about school, he says he didn't want to talk about it, but he doesn't have any friends.  It breaks my heart, because we held him back, all his friends are in first grade, and now he doesn't know anyone in kindy.

Birthday Party update!

Hugeish success.  It was a success in terms of it being over, not so much otherwise.  People didn't show up that were supposed to, and just well.... it was ok.  The kids had a blast, but I just sat around and talked to a friend and my parents, the inlaws just literally ignored me.  Not one person said anything about my weight, and no one said thank you for inviting us.  Screw it.  They've literally given me every excuse to shut them out of my life, and not worry about it.

Crazy, crazy....

Well, the big birthday party is Saturday.  Two days away!  I need to get cleaning on the house, and I need to bake the Stegosaurus cake.  I will definitely post pictures when it is done, if it turns out.  Well, even if it doesn't, I will!

We've got people coming from up north, and we're looking at 12 people shoved into our tiny little home.  It'll be good, because it's visitors, but it's sad, because we have no room to just shove the kids outside, and the parents just all sit around and watch them play.  We're going to have 3 kids between 16 months and 26 months.  It's going to be crazy!  We've just decided to have pizza, and then I'm making a veggie tray and a fruit tray, and then onion dip with crackers.  It's so much easier, and much less stressful than in years past, and I'm so looking forward to Saturday night when it's all over.
