Gloomy Tuesday

What is it about the weather that totally affects our moods? I feel kinda blah today...mirroring the weather I see outside. I did take advantage of a rare day spent at home (usually at the pool) and got alot of stuff done that needed it. Got all my plants watered, got the boys fish tanks cleaned, loads and loads of laundry washed and folded, kitchen cleaned, floor mopped. So all in all not a bad day.

Back after crashing!!!

Dont know what happened...or what went wrong...but my antivirus found a virus, and when I cleaned whole system went down!!! Gone...kaput!!! Couldnt even get windows to was bad!! Basically we had to reformat the whole computer and start from scratch. WHen I think of all the cool pics, graphics ect that I lost it makes me want to scream. AH well...I guess life goes on!!!!

It may take a few days but hopefully I will get most everything back and running. Now Im off to try and recover my bloglines so I can catch up on everyone!!!!

Not a baby anymore!!!!

Gosh they grow up so fast! I mean blink a few times and there go 2 or 3 years. Seems like I just gave birth to him, taught him to walk, ride a bike, play ball, not cringe whenever he crossed the street by himself....and now he is getting ready to graduate from junior high school. Where did the time go?

Friday night was his 8th grade dance. He looked sooo hansome I could barely stand it. You will see in his pictures that his hair needs to be cut(a long standing arguement between the 2 of us) but he loves it long. For that matter all the girls he knows tell him to leave it long I guess Mom is outvoted for now. Its just so hard for me to believe that my little baby boy is turning into a man. Not much little boy left in there at all. Once in a while I catch a glimpse of it, when he doesnt know hes being watched, or when he doesnt have to be cool... those are the times I treasure!!!

Thirteen Things Tish Loves

1. My husband- He works hard all day so I can be a SAHM. I know some days it has to be hard to get up and go to work knowing that I get to stay home and play all day. (Ok well maybe not play....but I def dont work as hard as he does) He loves me for who I am, faults and all.

2. My DS-14- My first born. WHile he drives me crazy on a daily basis, and constantly makes me want to tear my hair, I think the person I am today is in a large part to the lessons Ive learned while raising him. He is my staunchest defender when ever he thinks someone is threatening me or treating me with disrespect. He is my gorgeous, daring, loving explorer, and I thank God for him every day.

3. My DS-12- My baby. He is the light of my life. If ever I was to find a kindred spirit it would be him. We share so many things... our sensitivities, our humor, our go with the flow (until you really piss us off) attitude. He is my child, my baby, and my light. He makes every day brighter with his warm smiles and ever ready hugs!!!

4. My DSD-18 My first child. Thru her I learned many of the things I needed to know about being a Mommy. Even though it was on a part-time basis, the things we shared could fill a lifetime. She just turned 18 last week, and it is amazing to watch the beautiful young woman she is turning into. I so look forward to the fun we will share in her adult years.

5. My golden boy- Romeo. He is my best friend. He loves me unconditionally and is always ready to play. He looks at me like I am the center of his universe!!!

6. My cat Pumpkin- He keeps me on my toes. He is alway up to no good and trying to escape, but he always comes running to Mommy when I call him. No one else gets that response. He snuggles with me at night and keeps me warm. Even when I dont need to be kept warm!!

7. My golden girl- Juliette. She is just a bundle of fun and energy. ALway wants to play and run around. Loves to chase things. She makes me smile with her crazy ways and her puppy kisses. Who doesnt love puppy kisses???

8. My cat Tiger- She was given to me by my DSD-18. She knew I wanted a girl kitty (up until her I was the only girl in the house) so she saved her from a litter of kittens her cat had for me. She is a sweet lovable ball of fluff, and loves to lay in my lap and have her tummy rubbed.

9. My Mom. She is always there to listen, to love, and to lend a hand. We have soo much fun together it should be a crime! She makes me laugh, crys with me when I cry, and dries my tears. She is everything a Mother could and should be.

10. My family (outside of the ones I already mentioned) I have a great family. They are a great group. They are there thru the good times and the bad, and I love them for it!

11. My home- Its not a great house by any standards...but it is ours. It is where we grew as a couple, raised a family and loved each other more every day. There are alot of things Id like to change about it....but never the love that lives inside it.

12. My life- Ive got it very good. My family loves me, my pets adore me, my friends like me(as for as they tell me anyways) and we have enough to appreciate what we have. Life is good!

13. Myself- Not all the time, not everyday but Im working on that. Right now in this moment of time I do love myself. Im a good mother, a good wife, and a good friend...thats all I can ask of myself!
If you got to the end of this thanks for reading this!!! I know its long...but I couldnt express the same sentiment with just a few words!!!

Feeling like flinging!!!

Dont know what brought this mood on..but Im taking advantage of it! For those of you who arent familiar with it, flinging is a term that Flylady uses! It means getting rid of unnecessary unloved junk!!! ANd Im on a roll!!!! My kitchen has just felt my flinging wrath and the bathroom is next on my list. My downstairs bathroom also houses my washer and dryer and all the stuff that goes along with the laundry so you can imagine the clutter in there! Im off to conquer the clutter!!! Waaahooooo!!!!!!!

My family pics

Monday again!

Already??? Where did my weekend go? For that matter where did the last week go? A week sounds like alot of time..but its here and gone before I know it. What did I get done?? Um judging by the state of my house..not a whole lot!!! LOL. I did watch Cheaper by the Dozen 2...that was a really cute movie!!!
Other than that I just got the basics done, a little wash, little straightening up...carted the kids all over creation!!! Typical weekend. One thing different is that ds-14 and I went shopping for his 8th grade graduation dance outfit. Its semi-formal so no tux We finally agreed on an outfit...nice black button down shirt with wide stripes of black down the front. The shirt is black and the stripes are like silky black if that makes any sense. Ill post picks after the dance. He also agreed to black dress pants..but where we differed greatly on opinion was the shoes....sigh. He won that battle only because I know him and knew he wouldnt wear the dress shoes even if I bought them. He got black suede sneakers...(grrrrrrr). I finally gave in after telling myself over and over that it is his dance not mine...and if he wants to wear sneakers...thats on him. It still makes me nuts down in that control freak area that I try very hard to supress. I guess I should be glad hes a boy. Shopping for a girl would be much harder....(but alot more
The dance is friday Ill post pics then.

Back from vacation!!

Well we are back!!! We had a great time!!! I love it in VIrginia....its so peaceful there. Its like taking a vacation from my everyday worries and cares. No phone ringing off the hook, no tv all day long for the boys, they get along better...its sooo nice!
On the downside...coming home from vacation means lots of extra work for Mommy. 5 days worth of laundry to catch up on, food shopping to do, getting back in the swing of things always seems so hard!!!
Well off I go to get some more stuff done. DS-14 has karate tonite and tomorrow ( he tests for his next belt tom) so I need to get some stuff done before we have to leave!!

Im hoping for a good rain plants need it!!!!

Thursday, May 25, 2006

Let the countdown begin!!!!

Well its almost time for us to leave for Virginia! Im looking forward to this vacation even more than before!!! Probably because the weather is supposed to be warmer, so hopefully we will get to least in the pool if the ocean is too cool!!!!

We are going to Chincoteague. Its a quaint little town that has such a slow relaxing pace its almost like going back in time! Its the kind of town I would love to live in and raise my kids in..but unfortunately jobs are in short supply down there!!! My boys love it down there. My oldest fishes until he smells more like a sea creature than they do!!! My husband fishes too..but not nearly as much as my son. We spend the early part of the day until about 3 on the beach, then ds-14 and dh head off to fish. Ds-12, Me and Mom get dinner ready, "cruise the hood" on the golf cart, and walk the dogs( all 4 of them counting my 2 and Moms 2) Mom loves it down there too. She calls it her peaceful place!!!

Guess thats it for now. Ill be gone until Monday, so there prob wont be any more posts till at least Tuesday!!! When I get home Ill have a new pic of me to post...prob another sunburned one!!! LOL!!!Have a great weekend!!!

Just another day in paradise!

Well its been a good day!! Eating-wise..and other-wise. Ive gotten lots of things done on my to-do list, the kids are packed for our weekend getaway, the wash is caught up, the dishes done, and Momma is a happy girl! Not to mention DH is working late tonite so there is a nice peaceful tone for the night tonite..not the usual rush to get dinner ready ect.

Also I get to watch whatever I want on tv Which will be American Idol. I swore I wasnt gonna get hooked on that show again, and did really well until last night when I tuned in just to hear Katherine sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I love that song. Of course now Im hooked again..and will have to watch tonite to find out what happens. When will I ever learn??? Im rooting for Katherine btw...Im thinking that Taylor will probably win...esp since there hasnt been a male winner in a while. I dont like him as much as her. I dont hate him or anything...just not feeling him. Guess only time will tell.

Moody Momma

Im glad to see that Im not alone in the whole "in such a mood I can barely stand myself" feeling. I read a couple of my other IRL friends posts on their blogs..and can relate so well its almost like I wrote them myself. Its funny dont know if there was a funky moon, or its my PMS acting up..but I was definitely not in a great mood for the last few days. I had alot to be thankful for..I was down the shore, the weather was beautiful, my kids were fairly well-behaved, dh was nice enough to let me and the kids go away for the weekend while he stayed home and worked, we were doing fun stuff..but I still felt moody. Not scream and rant moody...but just not content. Quiet and withdrawn....what causes that?? Now in my defense..Im supposed to take medicine 2 weeks before my help with my PMS moods. I am usually very good about keeping up with that..but havent been lately. Im sure that is partly to blame. Gotta be better about staying on track with that.
Today I am feeling better...Im wondering if its just by chance, or due in part to the fact that I actually went to the gym yesterday and worked out? Im going again today to check out that theory.
Another reason I havent been very happy lately is that my eating has been out of control lately. My WL efforts have come to a standstill..well actually not to a standstill...Im gaining so Im totally going in the wrong direction..and I just cant seem to find the willpower to make a change. I dont think about what Im eating until after Ive eaten it..and then its too late to do anything about it. Then I feel guilty about eating junk, worry about gaining all that weight and more back, selfish because part of me just doesnt care, and tries to talk the caring part of me into not caring too. Its so hard. I know what I need to be doing...I just dont do it. I keep telling myself..tomorrow Ill be better..tomorrow Ill get basck on track...unfortunately tomorrow never comes!!!
Well thats all for now. Im off to get on the scale to give myself a real reality check. Ive been avoiding it for weeks because I know its not going to be good...but Im just gonna get it over with. Maybe it will give me the incentive to get more of a grip on myself. Hopefully!!!

1. That I feel better. Had a doozie of a cold and it was kicking my butt yesterday!!!

2. That I got to sleep in all day yesterday so that I could feel better today!

3. My kids were good yesterday and didnt fight too much because I didnt have the strength to stop them.

4. DH took the day off and got the kids to school so I didnt have to.

5. It is thursday and my new washer will hopefully be in tonite. Ive got tons of wash to catch up on due to being w/o one since Sat.

6. Its almost Friday!

7. Tomorrow the kids and I are heading down to Virginia for the weekend. I love going down there to my Moms..its so peaceful!!

8. The beautiful swing for out back that I got fdor Mother's Day.

9. The rain we've been having as I just planted grass seed out back. My flowerbeds are loving all this rain.

10. The sun we've been having in between the makes it so much better when we get rain and sun in the same day. In a perfect world it would be sunny all day and rain every night!

11. My grandmother is feeling better. Her medicines were changed and she wasnt feeling her self. She got them switched back and is feeling much better.

12. A family that loves us.

Where has the time gone?

Well its been a few days since Ive posted....sorry bout that! Its been hectic and crazy as my life usually is! My stepdaughter and a friend of mine introduced me to the Myspace site, and now Im getting caught up in that too. LOL. All this html stuff is fun!!! Been playing with stuff on that site and neglecting this one. GOnna try and keep up with both of them. Ill add a link to myspace later, because Im at my Moms in Delawre, and she still has dial-up..and I doubt if I have the patience to try it here!!!!
In other news Ds-14 qualified for the Karate Nationals in Tennessee this July by placing 2nd in both Points Sparring and Olympic Sparring at the Karate State Championship this weekend. I was very excited for him, but Ds was more concerned about the fact that he lost the matches. Im hoping losing was a good thing for him and teaches him to focus a little more on his training. Hes been slacking lately! THe other thing Im hoping about is that he manages to pass Language Arts this semester. He has to do that with a grde of 89 or better. If not he faces summer school, and will be unable to attend the Nationals in July. Now isnt that a bummer?????

Heres the site addy for Myspace

Good Monday Morning!!!

Not much is new here....pretty uneventful weekend. Mommy was cranky all weekend...thanks nothing much got done. Im feeling better least for I have a plan to get some much needed housework done around here!
Little boy is here, (the one I babysit) and hes currently watching Madagascar..his new favorite. As soon as I am done on here...he will be following me around the house helping So cute! I dont remember my boys wanting to help so much. Maybe because they had each other to play with and he is an only child.
Got a few errands to run, and ds-14 just called from school to say he needs me to come up and sign a trip permission slip..even though I have already signed one twice. He is soooo disorganized...I try and help..but Im not too much better. Thank goodness I was a little more organized at school than he is, or Id never have made it out alive!!!
One of my new books came over the weekend. The houseplant care one. Took some time and read up on some of my houseplants..some of them I am right on the dime as far as their care, and sun needs go...a few others I was doing all the wrong I have a poor pine tree that has been struggling to live since around xmas time. I thought it needed less light and cooler temps...turns out it needs high ligh..and ALOT of humidity! Who knew. Hopefully I can get it to thrive now, because it is def near death!
Guess thats all for now...Ill post later. Have a great day!!!!!

Definition of a Flyers Fan!!!!! (I LOVE IT!!!!)

Philadelphia fans defined
April 28, 2006
Article from

We're so misunderstood. People in other parts of the country, and most recently Buffalo (since the Flyers are playing the Sabres), hate Philadelphia fans. They call us "Scumbags". They say we have no class. I say, we have passion. We have a f@%$ing TON of passion. We hate the other team, the other team's fans, the other team's fans' kids, the other team's fans' pets... everyone and everything that has to do with the other team. When the Olympics were on, and the teams split up to go to their National teams, I hated everyone on the Flyers, even, who wasn't American, but only for those two weeks :) When it was Forsberg and Niitymaki in the final game of the Olympics, I had calmed down on my hatred a bit, but had no idea who to cheer for, since they're both great Flyers. Flyers fans will throw beer, punches, kicks, bras, food, truckloads of profanities, and anything else they can get their hands on. They will get kicked out of the game. And they will love every minute of it. If you are cheering for the other team, you will have never experienced as much misery in your whole life than during those three hours. We'll try to fight the players on the other team (Picture Tie Domi in the penalty box). We'll cheer when they're injured. We'd give anything to see a fight. But we love our teams. We love the Flyers. And they love us back. It's an "us against the world" mentality. We stick together through the thick and thin. If the team senses that the fans aren't cheering enough, they'll go knock someone's head off. If the fans aren't sensing that the team is giving it their all, we'll BOO the s@#% out of them. It's a two way deal. We're both crutches, carrying our crippled city's championship history to the goal. A championship in Philadelphia. With our help, and some sh%^ kicking, jaw gnashing, hatred of the other teams, we will make it. So, other cities of the NHL, understand that when you think lowly of the fans of Philadelphia, and the team of Philadelphia... you only make us proud!

God I LOVE Hockey!!!!!

Sunday fun day?

Not in this Sunday is usually the day I get the most done around the house. DH is usually off, the kids have their things to do, and I dont usually go out shopping on the weekends..hate the weekend I stay home and get stuff done that I should have done during the week instead of

Took Danny to karate...he had TaeKwondo Team practice..thats about 2 hours long, so I did run and get some produce. Needed cabbage for dinner tonite. We arw having ham and cabbage...yum!

Now that we are home Ive got tons of loads of wash to fold, and more laundry to finish. Ive already done 4 loads of wash, mopped the kitchen and front hallway floor. Once the kitchen dries..I can mop the back hall floor(bad planning on my and get all the muddy doggie prints off the floor out there. Hopefully the rain is done because it is making a mess out of my I dont really need any help in that area!!!

We have a couple movies to watch....See Dick and Jane..with Jim Carey and Tea Leoni, Rule of Engagement with Tommy Lee Jones, and Original Sin with Antonio Banderas (sighhhhh) Hopefully we get to at least one of them!!!

That brings me to a question..anyone seen anything good lately??? Or read a really good book?? Im looking for some new ideas!! Thanks!

Saturday, April 22, 2006

Rename my blog....please!

Ok heres the deal. I thought the name of my blog was an original one..and that it would bring the song to mind. After searching the web looking for tips and help with html..I came across many blogs with that name...and a movie by that name that is about gangs and strife. Definitely NOT the mood I was looking to associate with mine.

Im trying to think of a new name...something that isnt associated with strife and feeling angry. Any ideas would be appreciated! I like Butterfly Dreams..but am thinking that would be to fru-fru.

Please help me!!!!!

Starting to get the hang of this...

Finally!!!! Spent most of the morning playing with this blog....trying to add links and such! I think I finally figured most of it out. I added my fav blog links to my friends sites, so we can stay up-to-date! Its stupid little mistakes that Im making that are causing me most of my hair-pulling incidents. I should be bald by the time Ive got it all figured!!!

Where I got the name for my blog

I choose this title because I love the song. Its by Pam Tillis..and Mi Vida Loca means My Crazy Life! Appropriate no???

Here are the lyrics:

If you're coming with me you need nerves of steel
Cause I take corners on two wheels
It's a never-ending circus ride
The faint of heart need not apply

Mi vida loca over and over
Destiny turns on a dime
I go where the wind blows
You can't tame a wild rose
Welcome to my crazy life

Sweetheart before this night is through
I could fall in love with you
Come dancing on the edge with me
Let my passion set you free
Here in the firelight I see your tattoo
Mi vida loco, so you're crazy too

Mi vida loca over and over
Destiny turns on a dime
I go where the wind blows
You can't tame a wild rose
Welcome to my crazy life

We'll go where the wind blows
And I'll be a wild rose

Welcome to my crazy life!!!

Poor neglected kitties.

I realized after reading a comment from a flyfriend (Thanks Tracy!) that I forgot to post pics of my kitties when I posted family pics. My poor babies! Luckily they don't surf the web often, so I don't think they noticed my faux To remedy that is a pic of my 7 yr old male Pumpkin..also know as Evil Orange...and my 8 moth old female named Tiger (that everyone calls Skitchy)

Funny Quote

I saw this on an email I got earlier today and thought it was funny!

Some guy hit my fender the other day, and I
said unto him "Be fruitful and multiply." But not in
those words . . . . . . (Woody Allen)

The rest of the family!!!!

Ok these pics came out in weird order, but Ill just go with it and hopefully you can follow. The first pic is of our new puppy Juliette. She is such a sweetheart..but she is starting to get really confident in her surroundings...which is a good thing, but it also means she is starting to get in the trash, chew things, try to dominate my older dog....she is definitely a female...and thinks she is the boss!!! LOL! The next pic is of my golden boy Romeo. He just turned 5 yrs old last month and he is my sweetie. He has been so tolerant of the new puppy, and even lets her snuggle with him at night, even though I know he doesnt want too. LOL. He looks at her like she is a Leper, but I guess he figures its easier to let her lie there than it is to get rid of
The next one is a pic of my DH in Virginia. We were there on vacation, and these 2 fish were the catch of the day!! We will be married 15 years next month. FIFTEEN YEARS...god that sounds like a long Cant believe he has put up with me for that must be love!!!

The next pic is a pic of my DS-14 and his 8yr old cousin. Im assuming you will be able to tell which is which! We were on our way to a karate demo when this picture was taken. They are just chillin in the backseat.

Next pic is both of my DS's. DS-14 and DS-12. I havent figured out what Im gonna call them on here, so for right now its ds-14 and ds-12. Gotta think of something creative. I might use their nicknames...although ds-14 (Boo) might take issue with Here they are petting the Chincoteague Ponies.

Now that Ive got this working....

I figured Id add a pic of me and the family...Ill introduce each one as we go!

This is me...well me a year ago. I dont have any recent pics that arent of Christmas or New Year, and since its April I wanted a summery pic. I look pretty much the same...Im sunburned again, thanks to a trip down to Virginia over Easter break, and my hair is Need to get another perm, but after the disastrous haircut I had last Aug..Ive been shying away from any and all hairdressers. I wont get into it here since its long and involved...but it was awful!! Bad....really really bad!!! Cried over it bad!!!! Can you say scarred for life???

He is growing fast...despite my wishes to the contrary. I see him becoming more like a man and less like a little boy every day. Today I finally broke down and got him a cell phone. Ive resisted this for so long for one, because its an extra expense we really dont need, and two because I just thought he wanted one because every other kid he knows has one. I finally gave in because Imm having a hard time keeping tabs on him. He is going further and further away from home and when I need to find him, or give him a message it takes me forever to locate him. The other reason is one Ive been thinking about ever since he broke his wrist. He was in the woods with a couple friends and they were doing jumps on their bikes. Well he tried one particular stunt, didnt make it, and fell and broke his wrist. Luckily one of his friends had a cell phone, and let him use it to call me...if it hadnt been for this would have been a long painful walk home for ds-14 to finally get me. That got me thinking about all of the dangers he faces, and puts himself into. It does make me feel a little more secure knowing that he is just a phonecall away. The salesgirl tried to sell me on the new gps locator to put on his I could find out where he was tempting..but not worth an extra$10 a month for it. The thought of lojacking my kid was pretty amausing. After all I have id chips in both of my dogs in case they get lost, so they can be returned....why not lojack my kid?? Somehow I dont think he'd see the humour in

THink Ive worked out the kinks!!! far so good. The last post seems to be sticking around. Hopefully Ive got it figured out. This blogging thing is harder than it looks at first. I also cant figure out how to put html on here. Ive copied and saved like Im supposed to...but its just not showing up. Oh well C'est la vie!!
So far today Ive got alot of projects planned. I need to add some plants to my front flower bed. Picked up some pretty petunias at HD, along with some more topsoil for the backyard, and some mulch for the flowerbed. As the weather forcasters are calling for rain tomorrow..I need to get the topsoil put out back to fill in the holes that ddoggies keep digging. Apparently Goldens LOVE LOVE LOVE to dig. Didnt know that about them. DH keeps telling me they are digging their own For a while it looked like Bosnia out back..but now I am making a point to get the holes filled back in. I want to have a nice green pretty back will take constant effort on my the dogs and the kids seem to love tearing it up and making it a mess!!!
I also need to spread out the grass seed I bought last week so hopefully the grass will start to come back. Its good in some spots..but naked in others!
In addition to all that I need to get the livingroom vac'd, and some more laundry done. Laundry is the bane of my existence. Seems like all I do is laundry, only to find there is more laundry to be done. I never knew 4 people could wear so many clothes!!! Ok off I go....the spirit is will..but I think the flesh is weak!!! Wish me luck!!
Entry for April 06, 2006
Ok here first attempt at blogging. I enjoy reading other blogs..everyone makes it look so easy, and I should be able to do it too right? Just gonna jump in and if you lose interest feel free to leave.
Where to start....hmmm. Im a SAHM, I have 2 boys. The oldest one is 14 going on 30...and the younger one is 12. THe question I get asked most often is why am I still at home when my boys are so old. Well there are several answers to that. I still dont know what I want to be when I grow Basically I stay home because I like it, my boys like it and my DH likes it. My 2 boys fight way to much to be left home alone, and to come home to the house still intact. I do watch other kids for some extra income...but Im down to one right now.
Believe it or not...SAHM's are pretty busy. If Im not running to the grocery store, the dr's office, the dentist, or vet...then Im usually out with my partner in crime, shopping, going to the gym, looking for good deals to resell on Ebay, or just grabbing lunch and generally carrying on. All and all Ive got a pretty good life!!!
With the warmer weather coming Ive really been looking forward to getting out to my flower garden. I rebricked it last week because the old fencing around it was shot. It looks so nice now, I cant wait to get some new flowers to put in. I have some Hostas breaking ground and popping up..and soon it will be filled with them.
Guess thats all for now. Ill post more later.
