Birthday Morning

all is quiet when out of no where the baby starts screaming which wakes my middle child who is super excited to go to a friends birthday party today. She wants a countdown every 5 minutes of when we are going to be leaving. I have 5,000 things to do to get ready including getting my son out of bed, feeding the baby, bathing the baby, blog, and get myself cleaned up (at this moment I look like I fell out of bed, and I feel like it too). Oh yeah and run a few errands before we actually go to the party. But I am SuperMom so it will get done :-)

Can’t wait to see my daughter on her birthday in a few weeks. Then she will want a countdown of when everyone will be coming over. Don’t they sell programmable countdown clocks somewhere? That would save me a ton of time lol.

After the party its my wind down time. Steak and wine and catching up on the DVR shows (including SYTYCD) Ahh I love Saturdays, its the one day where my husband and I can just chill out, float in the pool and let all our cares slip away (they don’t really go far).

Hope whoever is reading this has a good weekend :-)

Oh My Gosh....CHOCOLATE!!!!!

Well ever since I was pregnant with my last daughter I have craved chocolate. I never used to like it all that much but I was hoping that craving would stop after the baby. But noooooo it had to carry over to now and lately my chocolate craving has been bad. Chocolate muffins, chocolate chips and chocolate pudding. Can’t get enough of it lol and the real funny thing is I am getting mad at the wii fit for saying I haven’t lost any weight……well duh!!!!!!!

So starting next week (hey the weekends coming up I always indulge on the weekends) enough with the chocolate and I will begin a heavy duty wii fit bonanza. Stay tuned I may have a wii machine that has pissed me off for sale

A Blah Day!!!

Woke up and the weather was good but quickly turned into a blah kind of day. You know the kind where you just want to stay in bed curled up in a little ball under the covers. Wish I could………

So I am in the process of getting the girls birthday parties together. Big A wants a Camp Rock party and I told her that the movie was too new and they probably wouldn’t have any decorations out yet. LOL Just as I said that I get an email from a party place and guess what…..they have them. So Camp Rock it is.

Little A will just have a cake that she can bury her hands and face in. She won’t know too much about what is going on. I can’t believe she will be one soon. Seems like just yesterday…….

Back from Vacation

Well we have reached that sad time when vacation is over and we get back to reality. I was ready for it. The baby was good but had her moments and it’s hard dealing with a squirming baby (especially when it rains lol). But we had a real good time. Much needed I say.

Friday we just stayed at the hotel and it was alot of fun. So much to do and its always fun staying on Disney property. Saturday we went to Animal Kingdom where it was sooooooo hot and there were soooooo many people. We didn’t get to go on much and while in a show it started to storm so when we got out it was pouring. That pretty much decided that we were going back to the hotel.

That night Rob and I took the kids to a fancy restaurant for our Anniversary dinner. Best food I have had in a long time (well, besides Rob’s steaks & chicken) and it was a very enjoyable experience. The baby was good and the other two kids didn’t fight. The waiter was on top of the ball and very friendly. Overall a very nice time. Very relaxed now. Back to reality……

Now we have to buckle down and get going. We will be moving August 1st so I need to get on the ball here and get packing. And have Big A & Little A’s birthday parties in the middle. Oh well I can do it I am super mom right?!? :-)

Anyway I am back and will be popping on here and there regularly again. Need to finish SYTYCD on the DVR so will post that tomorrow.

Vacation & 10 Wonderful Years

I feel like a little kid right now. Tomorrow we go on our mini vacation to Disney. I always get excited going to Disney for a couple of reasons.

1- I feel the magic every time I go to any of their parks. I get those butterfly feelings in my stomach that tend to make me revert back to being a kid.

2- I love seeing all that magic through my children’s eyes. Little A will be seeing this for the first time and she has such a personality now that I am excited to see how she is going to react. She flips out when watching The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and sees Mickey on the TV, so I can’t wait to see what happens in real life :-)

So on our mini vacation Rob & I will hit our 10 year Anniversary. In hitting that mark I am reflecting on what a good man my hubby is. I made a perfect choice in him and he has given me the one thing that means the most to me and that is a family. My husband and my kids are my life and I love them all greatly!!!!!!!!! So here’s to relaxing and enjoying ourselves and our kids and here’s to 10 wonderful, magical years married to my best friend.

Wow Life Can Come At You Fast

Yesterday started out normal, well normal if you consider a baby waking you at 3am and not going back to sleep, normal for me. My sister usually calls everyday at 8am but my phone rang at 7:15. Turns out she was in the hospital and needed me to watch her babies so she could have surgery for a ruptured hernia. Well duh! I can watch your kids.

So I had a mini day care going here yesterday. My 3 and her 2, what a mad house. But I made it through with little more than a headache and thankfully my sister is gonna be ok.

But it made me stop and think. Life can really throw you for a loop sometimes. I mean you sit here and think of all the things you need to accomplish in a day and when something happens it all comes to a screeching halt. I for one really wish we didn’t have to pack our days full of things that need to get done, when you do life passes you by.

Ok enough of my ramblings. A saying I saw awhile ago is perfect for now. It is:

Your alive…… so live.

Rest In Peace Tim Russert

I am deeply saddened by the news this evening. I only know him through the great way he delivered political news but he will be missed on the shows I have watched him on. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Time Flies By....

Wow, as I sit here I am hit with the fact that my kids are really growing up and they seem to be going at light speed. Almost a year ago I had my Little A and it seems just like yesterday (heck my back still hurts like it was yesterday lol). My Big A will be turning 9 and it seems like just yesterday she was running around at the age of 2 asking for me to turn the light "on-on".

But the realization that really takes the cake is my son. My 15 year old son who just passed his driver’s test for his permit. I was so proud of him and at the same time I am petrified. Where did all this time go? I am amazed at what we have all be through and we all came out ok.

It’s times like these that I can’t help but sit back and reflect on the good parenting job Rob & I have done. And it hasn’t been easy, but I am happy, very happy. I love my kids, I love my husband and all is right with the world.

A Little Better

Well that flu really sucked. I feel a little better (knock wood) and I hope to get my energy back soon. At least my eyes don’t feel like they are on fire anymore. This bout was real bad and I wonder if it is like this across the country or if it is localized to Florida, alot of people I have talked to here say it’s been bad.

My daughters are still sick just not as bad as before. My son was lucky and only got a cough for a few days so I have been making him stay away from everyone else. It looks like we all will be better before our Anniversary vacation. (knock wood again)

So I am back with the blogging program now. Stay tuned……

Sick As A Dog

Ugh, I knew it was coming but I now have full blown what the kids have. I want to curl up in a little ball with the covers over my head and take my Nyquil and go to sleep, but I can’t. I have never felt this bad before (I probably say that every time I get sick which isn’t often) but my eyes feel like they are on fire. I have never felt that before. LOL

Will get back into the swing of posting more when I feel better. Now it’s off to the couch to listen to my daughter scream cause she isn’t feeling well. A mother’s work is never done…..

Sleep Deprivation

Word: sleep deprivation
Part of Speech: n

the condition of being robbed of sleep, in real life or in experiment, as opposed to being unable to sleep

Yep thats me I am sleep deprived. I am really, really tired and I don’t know how I will catch up on the sleep I so desperately need. It all started a few nights ago when the baby got sick. And as most of you know that once one family member has it everyone is going to get it. The baby can hardly breathe through her nose which makes her so cranky (hell it makes grown ups cranky too) and she is up every 15 minutes coughing like crazy I know her poor little throat must be killing her.

Big A, my middle daughter got it last night at 2 am (the baby ended up actually sleeping through the night for the first time in 3 days. Figures…) So she wakes me up and I ended up sitting with her in her room trying to make her comfortable for 2 1/2 hours. I finally dragged myself to bed at 4:30 am only to have the baby wake up at 6 (sigh).

So this morning I was watching Bunny Town with her on Disney channel and this mouse drives up in a little bus and for some reason I start laughing and I just can’t stop. My husband thinks I am going nuts and just looks at me, but I can’t stop. I ended up calming down 5 minutes later with tears streaming down my face. I so need to sleep.

I had a doctors appointment this morning and was actually looking forward to it so I could get away for a bit and not have kids screaming around me. (crazy because it wasn’t a fun one. Not that any Dr. appointments are fun lol) It was so peaceful in the waiting room with classical music playing that I dozed off not once but twice. The nice lady sitting next to me look at me and patted my arm and said "There, there you poor thing you look like you haven’t slept in weeks. You should go home and take a nap." Unfortunately for me I just looked at her and started to laugh (I must have looked really stupid to her) I don’t know why I laughed but again I couldn’t stop. At least I think everything is funny when I am tired and don’t run around in public yelling at people. But I never got to explain to her my predicament so if you are out there kind lady I am sorry for laughing but I am sleep deprived. Still am of this writing.

All I know is I hope to get a good amount of sleep soon and this whole sickness thing better be gone before my husband’s and my 10 year anniversary in 2 1/2 weeks.

Why is it every time I need a break all hell breaks loose? The baby is sick and I hate seeing her that way, my teenage son is being a butt and my middle child is needing attention. What I need is about 4 more hours in a day. And sleep….yeah sleep would be good.

I am working on 6 hours of sleep for the last 2 days and I can’t function. A short trip to the library had me angry by the time I left and no one seems to be able to drive right (or maybe it’s me that isn’t driving the right way who knows) all I know is that life is hectic at the moment and I miss feeling young. 3 kids later and only 37 (in September) and I feel like I have zero energy and the gray hairs keep creeping in. What was that one commerical…Oh yeah Calgon take me awayyyyyyyyyyyy
