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!!!!
