Where have I been you wonder...

Well I've been sick. Horrible isn't it?!?! I know you all missed me so much. Who wouldn't? I mean I am the star of the show here. Anyway, I'm feeling much better today. Just sitting and relaxing for a few minutes. I have a lot to do today. I have to go pick up our family pictures from Olan Mills, go buy some picture frames, I need to buy a book of stamps to send out Christmas cards, and we need a few groceries. Oh not to mention the house is a mess because the kids have had a fantastic time destroying the house while mom was sick in the bed for two days. Ah the joy!

I managed to pass both my college classes from my last block of courses! YAY go me! But due to getting a D+ in Critical Thinking, my GPA has dropped to 3.25. Ugh! But I'm going to be positive and if I pass my two classes this block with an A+ or an A- hopefully I can bring that GPA up some. One can hope right?

This Saturday I am hosting my first ever giveaway over on SITS! I'm going to be giving away a children's book. Not sure which one as of yet though. I'm hoping it will get me some business, because honestly, its been kind of dead lately. I've only sold one book in the past 2 months. Sad, I know. So if your bored this Saturday, head on over to SITS and check my giveaway out!

46% Of Women Prefer Internet To Sex

Fotolia_4239524_XS An online survey commissioned by Intel has found, among other things, that 46% of women would rather go without sex for two weeks than give up the Internet for that long. The numbers get bigger for certain age groups; 49% of women aged 18-34 would make that choice, and 52% of women aged 35-44.

Some 30% of all men would swap sex for the Internet for two weeks, if they had to, with 39% of men aged 18-34 willing to make that sacrifice, according to the survey. Only 23% of men aged 35-44 said they would do so.


To me this is really surprising! What do you think?

Is it morning already?

Kristopher my 2 year old decided to wake up 30 minutes early this morning. Joy! So because him and CJ share a room, he woke CJ up as well. So at 6:30am this morning they were both screaming, talking, and playing. Ugh! As I lay there thinking, you have got to be kidding me, I feel like I just went to sleep, I hear my oldest Cassie start crying. It is amazing how fast a mother can become AWAKE at the sound of one of her children in tears. So I jump up and go running to her room, where Kailey is still sleeping, I look up in the top bunk for Cassie but she isn't there, then I hear her cries coming from the bathroom. So I turn around and head back to the bathroom to find her throwing up all over the bathroom floor. Who said being a mom isn't a full time job??? By the way, it is so very underpaid!!! So I clean her up and the floor up and help her to the couch. Then the boys remind me they are up early by screaming my name, which I need to change, because the name mama is extremely over used. So the morning continues like normal. I get Kailey to school, which she is very excited about, because today is their Christmas party in her class and they are making waffles for breakfast. YUM! So any ways, we are all just hanging out this morning in the livingroom watching television. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We have a Christmas Party to go to tomorrow night, then Sunday I'm going Christmas shopping and Sunday night we are going Christmas light hunting! I can't wait!

OMG its 27 degrees outside!

Everything is all frosted over. The van was no fun, having to wait for the windows to defrost while trying to see out the front window. Because if I waited, the kids would of been late to school. So I turned the defrost on full blast and sprayed tons of window cleaning fluid on it and within a minute or so I could see fully out the front window. Now the side windows are a different story. 48Here in El Paso almost every stop sign is a 4 way stop sign and  well you have to see who turn it is next and that's kind of hard when you can't see out the side windows. So of course I have to roll down the window and let out our freshly semi warm air, which is taking forever to warm up by the way. I look back into the back seat and all 4 kids look like they have taken on the habit of smoking cigarettes. Kailey and Cassie thought it was cool they IceCrystalsWindowcould blow out white air. CJ and Kris were just amazed at the snowflake looking designs on the windows.  Those things are very kewl looking by the way. It literally looks like snowflakes got stuck to your window and froze in place. Very pretty. I am seriously hoping it warms up either today or tomorrow because I have to run to Wal-Mart and buy Kailey a girlie coloring book with some crayons, which has to be wrapped for her Christmas Party in class this Friday. They are swapping gifts and making waffles for breakfast that day. She has 450x300_choc_cov_cherriresto take a jar of cherries for the waffles. Who eats cherries on their waffles? I don't! But maybe some people do? I'm not a big cherry eater, only when it involves chocolate, then I can eat them.  Oh now I'm getting hungry...I might have to go dig out my stash of chocolate covered cherries we bought at the store Saturday! Oh Yummy!!!

Over on Jumping in the Jungle, Jane is hosting a WHY WEDNESDAY where we can ask WHY? and hopefully get some answers to our most unanswered questions. So for my question I'd like to ask, "How come our husbands can't read our mind?" Wouldn't life be so much easier if they could. Then they wouldn't have the excuse of "I didn't hear you say or ask me to do that!" Knowing good and well they did, but they try to act like they didn't. If they could read our minds they wouldn't have that excuse. And when its time to fold laundry or do dishes, they would read our minds and know to come help out without having to be asked. They would even be able to read our minds and know "Okay, the trash bag is overflowing, please take it out NOW! and don't forget to put a clean bag in the trash can when your finished!"

Tuesday and Rain

IMG_0717Guess what?!?! It snowed a little bit. I even got a picture of it. Yup sure did!  Over in the corner of our yard, where Chloe likes to dig a hole, there is white stuff, I think its snow! How exciting! LOL! Yea I guess it doesn't take much to excite me. To bad that's all the snow we got, I think the rain is washing it away, kind of depressing, stupid rain! Maybe we will get more snow another day right?! One can hope.

I am a member of a Blogger group called SITS, I am sure you have seen their little buttons over on the side of my blog. Anyway, yesterday they featured the nicest blog, the family is just amazing. She is a mom of 4 girls, bless her! Her blog is beautiful, I love the layout. She writes the nicest and funniest things. Here is her link if you want to see for yourself: A Thorn Among Roses. So anyway, I just wanted to give one of my fellow SITSta's a shout out because I just really enjoyed her blog that MUCH! I wish she had a button for her blog, cause I'd sure add it to my side bar!

So anyway, it's naptime for Kristopher and I need to catch up on some laundry and dishes. What fun! Not really...

Ahhh, relief!

I just turned in both of my final projects! Now I have to hold my  breath for a week until I get my final grades!!! I'll be fine in my writing class, its my critical thinking class I'm worried about. *sigh*


Any way, I just noticed something really weird. I'm taking this medicine and it won't let me cry. I mean the medicine is suppose to help you get over being depressed so your not all sad and crying all the time, but man, not to be able to cry at all sucks! I mean what if I stumped my BIG toe! Would I cry then? lol I'm not sure, all I know is I can't freaking cry and it's a really weird feeling.

tiredcat Well I am a bit exhausted like this here little kitty cat and I think I should get some sleep. I have to get up early to get the kids to school.

oh. yay. another. monday.

Well its finally Friday. But the hubby has school all weekend so there isn't much special about this weekend. Well except I have 2 final projects due Sunday night. One is almost finished and I haven't even started on the second. So yea I'm going to be busy this weekend doing homework. What fun! I'm hoping the hubby gets off early today like he said he would, cause I really don't want to do grocery shopping by myself with 4 kids tomorrow. So maybe we can go tonight. Well nothing really else to run my mouth/fingers about. Just another day at the house.
