Getting to know you!

Getting to know YOU

Sundays are reserved for Keely over at Mann Land 5 who came up with the fun blog hop Getting to know YOU.  She asks us some questions....we answer then link up to her site.  Can it get easier than that?  Nope, I don't think so :o)  So after reading my responses I want you to click right here and blog world will direct you to Keely's blog and from there you can answer the questions yourself.  After doing that, leave me a comment telling me all about it and I will come visit your blog and leave you some comment blog in return :o)  I'm not bossy or anything....well I kinda am but you won't regret it LOL!!!  Now on to the questions....

1.If you had 5000.00 to spend on plastic surgery what would you have done?

My boobs!!!  Then I would start saving up to get a tummy tuck.  I really want to have both done at some point.  I haven't had a body since I had kids and I think it is time I get to look good :o)  I am gonna start a new weight loss program and when I get down to the weight I want to be at I am gonna get some work done.

2. Do you watch Soap operas and if so what is your favorite and why?

No!!!  I can't get stuck watching the same show that plays the same scene for weeks at a time.  I would never get anything accomplished.  Watching my night time shows is bad enough!

3. Favorite clothing brand?

I don't really have a favorite.  I used to be all about brand name jeans but now I buy South Pole, Vigoss and Ralp Lauren.  Basically whatever I find on sale at JcPenney.  

4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?

Maid service for a year!!!  I would love to not have to worry about cleaning my house!

5. would you ever vajazzle?

What is vajazzle?  Wait, I am going to go on Keely's blog to see what she wrote..................

Keely wrote... Nope, note ever!  Now I need to go google what the heck Vajazzle is, hold on a sec...............

Here is an explanation of Vajazzle...

Heck yeah I would do it!!!  I'm all about trying out cool stuff and imagine how pretty you would feel and no one has to know why you feel so pretty but you and that special someone :o)

I found this picture and thought it looked pretty cool...

6. Favorite Disney Princess?

Belle from Beauty and The Beast!

7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?

It doesn't take much to make me bawl my eyes out but I haven't watched any movies in a while.  The last show to make me cry my eyes out was Private Practice.  The season finale got me bawling my eyes out and all I wanted to do was lay under my covers and suck my thumb and call for my Mommy.  It was that good!!!

8. Have you ever broken any bones and if so what?

Yes, I have broken my toes.  Not once or twice....many times!!!  I am the ultimate klutz!!!  I have even broken one of my toes and gotten blood poisoning at the same time.  I will explain a little cause I know you will want to know :o)

I was mad and stormed into the kitchen and when I got there I accidentally kicked the stove and broke my toe.  During this time I managed to scrape the skin on the top of my foot and the next day there was a black line going up my leg.  I went to the emergency room and sure enough, I had blood poisoning.  I was given some meds and some shots including my tetanus shot and sent on my way.  Moral of this story is to stay away from the stove when you are angry!!!  Maybe I should just keep shoes on my feet at all times...........maybe not!!!  I like to be barefoot :o)

Okay enough of the questions.  I need to get back to work.  Have a great Sunday everyone!!!

Saturday, June 26, 2010


Last night I ate dinner at my sisters house and then the boys and I went home.  Kobe and I put our pajamas on and crawled into the was only 7:30 pm.  We talked and cuddled and were sleeping before 8.  I slept like a baby until the older two boys woke me up with their playing around at 2 am.  I ran into their room and told them to go to sleep shocked that those naughty little turds were still awake that late and having a good time.  I went back to bed and fell asleep and was woken up to giggles and laughter again at 3:30 am and this time I got mad.  I went into the boy's room and told them to knock it off and go to sleep NOW!!!  I was up a little after 4 with Kobe (poor thing woke up before my alarm even went off) and hurried up to get ready for work.  I usually leave Kobe at home with Tyrique and Markus until they are up for the day and then my brother in law gets him but today I took Kobe to my brother in laws house with me so he wouldn't be alone with two brothers that had just fallen asleep.  My poor brother in law had to be up at 5 am though and I know that he would have wanted to sleep longer if he could have.

I had my sister call my brother in law at a little after 8 and ask him to go to my house and wake the boys up.  I am not allowing them to sleep the day away and stay up again tonight until the wee hours of the night.  I found out a few hours later though that the boys got to sleep a lot later than that.  I am going to have a talk with the boys after I get home.  I can't have them waking me up at all hours of the night when I have to work the next day.  I know I went to sleep really early and I could have stayed up to make sure they went to sleep but I was toooo tired to stay awake.

I have been thinking and talking to my sister about my blog.  I was so into blogging and was always trying to think of something clever to write about and now I feel like there is nothing to say.  My life is a little bit hectic and blah right now and I am having a hard time thinking of something to write about.  I keep thinking that what I have to write about is boring and why would you guys want to read about it.  I am living here in Iceland and getting a divorce...that's really hard and it sucks big time to start all over.  I don't want to whine about what I miss and hate and blah blah blah but I also don't think you guys care about my day.  I work and I go home and take care of the boys.  For some reason I could always think of something fun to write about when I stayed home all day.  I feel like I have no life now!  I told my sister the other day that I can't wait to get a life! Isn't that funny?!?!?  What kind of life am I wanting to get?  I dunno!!!  I just want to have something exciting to say and something exciting to do.  Now I am starting to ramble and am probably boring you all to death.  I am gonna go for now.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

5 Question Friday

It is Friday and I am working!!!  I got a total of 2 hours of sleep before I got up at 4:30 this morning.  I am super tired but I have to tell you that I am breaking my own Caffeine rule and drinking a ton of it today to stay awake! I couldn't fall asleep last night because Kobe thought bed time meant play time yesterday.  He was not having any of it when I told him he had to go to sleep.  He finally fell asleep a little after midnight and I fell asleep shortly after that.  I woke up a few minutes after I fell asleep to some noise outside and couldn't for the life of me fall back asleep. Last thing I remember it was 2:30 am and I was freaking out thinking I had to be up in less than 2 hours to go to work.  I ended up snoozing twice this morning and was dragging butt to get to work.  I am going to bed early this morning!!!

So being that it is Friday, Mama M has a great blog hop that anyone who reads my blog knows I participate in every chance I get.  If you want to be part of the IN crowd then you would too (talk about peer pressure LOL).  Click here or on the button above if you want to be a part of the cool crowd :o)

1. Do you know how to play a musical instrument?

I used to play the violin when I was a kid but today I can play Mary had a Little Lamb on the piano and I am really good at it :o)

2. What is your pet peeve while driving?

I hate back seat drivers and I hate getting stuck behind someone on a Sunday stroll.  Drive the speed limit!!! 

3. Would you rather have a housekeeper or unlimited spa services?

HOUSEKEEPER!!!!!!!!!!  I could spend every day at the Spa if I had a housekeeper and not feel bad about it.  If I had unlimited spa service I would not be able to spend very much time there because of the housework.  HOUSEKEEPER!!!!!!!

4. Is there a song that you hear that will take you back to the moment, like a junior high or high school dance?

This is how we do it by Montel Jordan reminds me of the good ol' days!!

5. What song best represents your life right now?

Papers by Usher!

Just Thursday

I had a really cr5appy start to my day today.  I broke a tooth!!!  I have a tooth that needs a crown and being that they are super expensive I have been putting it off and yesterday that tooth decided it was time for me to have it fixed.  The tooth broke and I had to make an emergency dentist appointment.  It took the dentist 2 hours to fix the break and put in a temporary filling till I get the crown.  It cost an arm and a leg to fix it so now I have a temporary fix on my tooth but am missing an arm and a leg!!!  Maybe one day I will be able to afford to get my arm and leg back LOL!!!

On Thursdays Abby over at Murdock's Mama has a great blog hop called Just Thursday that I like to play along with.  She asks the questions and I answer :o)  If you want to play along click right here and let me know so I can read your post.

Outside my window.. all is quiet and peaceful.

The time is.. 10:34 pm
Today I feel.. bummed about my tooth.
I am thinking.. that I am glad I got to spend these last two days with my favorite boys.
At the moment, I am thankful.. that I got my tooth fixed!
I am going.. to be working the whole weekend!
I am wearing.. a long shirt.
I wish.. there were more hours in the day.
I am reading.. nothing.  I don't have time to read!
I am working on.. this blog post :o)
I am hoping..  that Kobe is good going to sleep tonight!
I am hearing.. the boys playing XBOX in their room with Kobe close by.
Around the house.. the house is clean and laundry is being washed.
I bet you didn't know.. I've been letting Kobe sleep in my bed because I love to cuddle with him :o)
One of my favorite.. shows on TV right now is Animal cops on Animal Planet (that's the only channel I watch these days).

Monday Madness

I can't believe it is already Monday.  I had a three day weekend and it went by waaaaay too fast!!!  I feel like I just had one day off and then it was time to go back to work again :o(  The way I work is I work two days and get two days off and then I work every other weekend.  The week that I work on the weekends is a long week because I work Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Then my off week I only work Wednesday and Thursday.  Each shift is a 12 hour shift and I work from 5:30 am till 5:30 pm.  I love my job and I feel really lucky to have gotten the job especially being that we have a recession going on here in Iceland.  I am such a people person and I really enjoy customer service and this job is such a perfect fit for me!

One of the hardest parts of working is not being home with the boys but this is now our new life and even though I know it is hard to get used to we all just need to get used to it.  I try to enjoy the boys as much as I can on my days off and I am going to be better about doing more things with them.  Before I started working I used to go swimming quite a bit and I tried to do stuff with the boys all the time.  Now I feel like my off days go by so fast and we don´t get anything accomplished.

One thing I did get accomplished yesterday is going for a long walk.  My sister and I decided that we wanted to get off of our butts and move it move it!!  We took the kids and headed out for a walk.  We started off by walking to my house and I got Kobe some gloves and a blankie to cover him in the stroller (it is kinda cold here in Iceland....11 degrees Celsius).  When we got to my house the kids decided that they didn't want to go with us anymore.  Markus and my sisters kids stayed behind and jumped on the trampoline and played with the neighbor kids (Tyrique was at his Grandma's house).  We walked by the ocean (next time I need to have my camera) and let Kobe walk on the big rocks by the beach and let my sisters dog run and play by the ocean.  We looked at all the different birds all around....we saw the cutest Mama ducks and their babies swimming in a row behind them.

Kobe fell asleep twice in his stroller and I had to try everything in my power to wake him up (I can't have him staying awake all night long and he would have if he would have taken a nap that late in the afternoon).  We saw lots of people walking their dogs and then the best part came towards the end of the walk....we saw two beautiful horses!!!  Kobe loves horses and can't get enough of them during the drive to Grandma's house and during our walk he got to pet the horses and watch my sister feed the horses some grass.  

I felt so refreshed after the walk and I am going to try to do that more often.  We walked for 2 hours and it felt like we were only out there for maybe 30 minutes.  I can tell you that I slept like a baby last night!!  It did rain all night and I had the windows open so that helped too :o)

Okay well enough of this rambling on and on.  I hope you are all having a great Monday!!

Just Thursday!

It is Thursday and in Iceland today we are celebrating Independence day.  I am working so I won´t be celebrating too much but I am hoping to take the boys downtown tonight after work to check out what is going on.  After I got home from work yesterday I cleaned my house from top to bottom so I wouldn´t have to worry about it today.  After I get off work today I am off until Monday morning so I want to enjoy the boys and enjoy being off and not have to worry about cleaning house.  But now on to the fun stuff.

Abby from Murdock's Mama has a great blog hop on Thursdays called Just Thursdays.  If you want to play along just click right here.  Let me know you are linking up so I can read your answers too :o) 

Outside my window.. the weather is beautiful and the Taxis are waiting for their customers :o)

The time is.. 7:55 am

Today I feel.. good about having cleaned the house yesterday.

I am thinking.. about the sweater that I am making for Kobe.  I can´t wait to finish it and take pictures to show you all.
 At the moment, I am thankful.. that I have a job and some security in my life.  It has been a hard 2 months since I got here and I am really glad to be working and to have an income coming in.

I am going.. to do some crafts this weekend and I am going to take the boys swimming tomorrow.

I am wearing.. work clothes....dark gray pants and a white shirt.

I wish.. I could get new flooring in my house. 

I am reading.. Eat, Pray, Love....this is getting kinda sad.  I have been writing that for 3 weeks now and I haven´t had time to read the book since 2 weeks ago.  I will get to it eventually!!!

I am working on.. writing this blog post and it is taking me forever because I keep having to stop :o)

I am hoping.. that we get to do something fun tonight....I hope all the activities aren´t done downtown tonight before the boys and I get there!

I am hearing.. my sister talking and the chit chat around the airport.

Around the house.. My house is sparkly clean!!! I love it :o)

I bet you didn't know.. I don´t drink coffee but I love the smell of it LOL.  There is a coffee shop about 100 feet away from me and I love the smell of that place:o)

One of my favorite.. books of all time is My sister the Moon.  I read it for the first time when I was 10 or 11 and I have read it probably a million times since!

Have a great Thursday everyone!

When I was little I was fearless.  There was nothing I couldn´t do and there was nothing I was afraid to try.  Today that is a totally different story.  It feels like the older I get the more afraid I get... 

I am afraid of heights, I have never been afraid of heights before.  Now everything about heights scared me to death.

I am afraid of stairs.  When walking down the stairs I am afraid that I might fall down and when I am walking up I am afraid I might trip and fall up the stairs (that has happened to my Grandmother and it was really bad, she broke her collar bone).  I am scared to death if the boys are playing around stairs.  I imagine the scariest possibilities when it comes to the boys and stairs.

I am afraid of fire.  I feel like I have a legit reason for this sisters house burned 4 years ago and it was really tragic.  The family dog died in the fire and they lost everything they owned.  Everyone in the family was safe.  Now I am scared to death of fires, I always make sure my smoke detectors are good and I have woken up more than once thinking that I smell smoke.

I am afraid of elevators because of a story I heard about Dewayne´s cousin.  He was 7 years old and he was standing in front of the door waiting for the elevator to arrive when the doors opened and he fell to his death because there was no elevator there.  I won´t let the boys stand anywhere near elevator doors and I am constantly afraid that the doors are going to open and someone is going to fall through them.  I am also just afraid that the elevator is going to come crashing down or I am going to get stuck in one.

I am really claustrophobic.  I have always been claustrophobic but this fear has gotten worse over the years.  I start to have mini panic attacks just thinking about tight quarters.  If I see someone in a costume (think Barney the big purple dinosaur) my chest tightens and I start to panic just a little bit.  If I try on a shirt or a dress that is too tight in the chest then I freak out and everyone that knows me knows to pull the clothing off NOW!!! 

I am afraid of strange animals.  I used to be an animal lover and now I am too scared to come near any animal I don´t know.  Strange cats give me the creeps because they could scratch me or they could have lice or something gross on them.  Strange dogs could also have lice or they could attack me or the boys.

Wow, I think I might be starting to sound like a bit of a mad woman.  I am not freaking out every second of the day.  I do not share my fears (except the clothing being too tight) with anyone.  I have just realized that the older I get the more fearful I get.  How is this going to end?  Am I gonna be locked in a house too scared to leave because something could happen to me?  I can understand people who feel that way now...I am not gonna end that way though LOL

Now that I have made myself sound like a lunatic I am going to stop :o) 

Before I go though....

Do you have any fears????

4. What is your favorite Summer month?

June.  The boys get out of school and the weather is not too hot.  It feels like a new start...I love it!

5. Pool, Lake, or Ocean?

I love the ocean, I love looking at it and I love living near it but I am not really a fan of being in it.  It´s dirty!!!  The ocean has fish and sharks and all kinds of nasty things that might hurt me or the boys.

I love pools!!!  I would spend all my time there if I could :o)  The boys love going to the pool too so we are a great fit :o)

6. One of my favorite Summer memories is.....?

When I was 12 we bought a RV and traveled all around Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and went to California (Lake Tahoe but that counts as Cali right??).  It was so much fun and we even got to bring our beloved pets along for the trip.  My Mamma was pregnant with my little baby sister which was just a dream come true because I wanted another sibling so bad.  The memories from that trip will stay with me forever.  I loved it!

7. What's your favorite secret bargain?

JcPenny.  I love the sales they have at JcPenny´s, if I need clothes I can always find the brand name clothing cheapest there :o)  I miss JcPenny!!!

8. Do you plan on or have you been watching the World Cup?
Uh, no thanks!!!  I have no husband and that means I do not have to watch sports anymore unless it is for my boys LOL!!! 
The only TV in the house is in the boys´s room so I couldn´t even tell you what is on TV anyway!
Well, that was fun.  Join in the fun by either visiting Keely´s blog or answering the questions in my comment section.  Have a great Sunday everyone!!!

5 Question Friday!!

Mama M over at My Little Life has a great blog hop on Fridays called Five Question Friday or 5QF.  It is so simple to play along, she does all the hard work.  She asks the questions and we answer them....can it get easier than that?  Now, if you would like to play along all you have to do is click right here OR . 

Here are this weeks questions.

1. What do you think makes a good friend, or friendship?

Honesty, a good sense of humor, loyalty, trust and of course we have to get along LOL!!!  I can get along with most people but it takes a special someone to become a good friend or a best friend.  I love to talk and can talk friend has to be able to keep up with me :o)  All of my friends are wonderful and I wouldn´t trade them for anything in the world. 

2. What is the last thing you bought & later regretted?

I haven´t bought anything in so long that I don´t know anything to write on here!!  Is that a good thing or is it a bad thing?

3. Have you ever had a prank played on you?

Not that I can think of.  I´m sure there has been some sort of prank played on me but I can´t think of anything at the moment.

4. What is your favorite theme park?

My favorite theme park of all times is Hershey Park in Hershey, PA.  We used to go when I was younger and I loved it!!  There is a roller coaster there called The Great Bear, it is the kind of roller coaster where there is nothing under your feet.  I loved it!  I haven´t been on a roller coaster in almost 10 years though.  I am too scared to get on a roller coaster.

5. Have you ever seen someone else give birth?

Yes I have!  I had a friend who I got to be a part of both of her sons births.  When she delivered her second son she was having some problems in the end.  She had been in labor for a long time and she was too tired to push (she had been pushing for hours at this point) and the Dr. was going to do a c-section.  I sat down on the stool between her legs and told her that if I were to put my finger inside I would be able to touch the babies head.  Then after each time she pushed I showed her on my finger how much she had pushed the babies head down.  When the baby started crowning the Dr. switched me spots and she delivered her son vaginally.  The Dr. gave me endless praise and everyone else did too.  It felt so good to be a part of that birth :o)

The other birth I was at was my nephew Diamonds birth.  My sister was induced on December 28, 2004 at 7 am and her husband, our Mamma and I sat with her the whole day.  She did a great job but by about 6 pm the baby was not making any progress.  She was not dialating and the baby was starting to show some signs of stress so the Dr. told her he was going to perform a c-section.  The Dr. left the room and we were talking and all of a sudden my sister said she felt some pressure.  I asked her if I should go get the Dr. but she said no.  At a little after 6:20 pm my sister told us that she felt a lot of pressure so I went to the hall and told them to get the Dr. because she felt pressure.  The Dr. came into the room just in time to deliver my beautiful little nephew Diamond.  He weighed in at 9 lbs 10 oz and was 21 3/4 inches long.  It was one of the proudest moments of my life.  I wasn´t there to witness the birth of his older sister Bella (we lived in two different countries) but I was so proud and honored to get to be a part of Diamonds birth.

Just Thursday early on Friday morning

Outside my window..are taxis and airplanes.

The time is..6:41 am

Today I feel.. really tired.  I didn´t feel good last night and therefor did not sleep very much.
I am thinking..that this is going to be a long weekend.  This is my first weekend that I am working the whole weekend and the boys are at my Mamma´s house.  I feel like I am missing my right arm not having my boys with me.  I know I should be enjoying it but this is the first time Kobe has ever left me besides last year when he went with his Daddy over Easter to Chicago.

At the moment, I am thankful..that I have such a wonderful Mamma who is willing to take my boys for the weekend so I don´t have to worry about them since I have to work.  Thank you Mamma!!!
I am sleep super early tonight!!!
I am wearing..Dark gray dress up pants and a white button up shirt (my work uniform except it is missing my vest...I am waiting for the tailor to call and let me know it is ready).

I wish..I could win the lottery so I could stay home with my kids!!
I am reading.. Eat, Pray, Love....I started reading it last week but I haven´t had a chance to read very much.  I have been going to sleep so early since I started working and when I am not sleeping I am taking care of the boys.
I am working on..losing some weight.

I am hoping..I can stay awake today :o)

I am hearing..people talking all around me.  The hum of the airport!

Around the smells like fried shrimp thanks to my brother in law!!  I hate the smell of fried food in my house and I do not eat sea food and the smell of fried shrimp is gross!!!  I opened all the windows in my house last night and hopefully when I get home tonight there will be no smell!!!

I bet you didn't know..that I love people watching!  I think working at the airport suits me well :o)

One of my favorite..foods is apples!!!  I love sweet yet sour apples.  Jonagolds are my favorites!

Monday Madness

I´m calling this blog post Monday Madness because I have a whole lot of stuff to say.  Let me start by telling you all about my creepy Friday.

I woke up on Friday morning at about 10 am and it was so hot in the house that I started by opening all the windows in the house to get some fresh air and to cool the house.  I then took my shower and Kobe and I ate breakfast and headed out to my sisters house.  When I got to my sisters house she was complaining that her body was hurting from all the moving we had done and she told me that she couldn´t find any pain killers in her house.  I told her I would drive to my house real quick and get her some Motrin and off I went. 

When I got in the car and started to drive I noticed that it looked like there was really bad fog all over the city.  The fog was really dark on one side and then it was lighter on the other side.  It looked so spooky and the air was so weird.  It was hotter than it has been since I got here and the air felt thick when breathing it in.  I got back to my sisters house and told her and my Grandmother to come look outside.  We then realized that the creepy fog was ash from the volcano. 

The creepy ash stuck around the whole day and that night when I got back home I realized my whole house was full of ash.  My floors, tables, beds, windows on the inside and outside were covered in black soot.  I was so glad that I had all of our sheets in the dryer, that way we had clean sheets to sleep with.  I closed all the windows as soon as I came home so we would not be breathing in the ash as we slept and started the cleaning process.

Saturday I woke up and again went over to my sisters house.  This time we went to the paint store and bought lots of paint for her new house.  We spent all of Saturday at her house painting the bedrooms (we only have one left).  That night Kobe had a little melt down, poor thing cried for his Daddy for hours and was not even satisfied after talking to him on the phone.  He kept asking me if we could go on an airplane to Daddy's house tomorrow when we wake up.  He wants to go to his Daddy and he wants to go in his Daddy's car. 

Poor baby is not handling his Mamma going back to work as good as I was hoping.  Kobe has been stuck to my hip and is always making sure I am not going anywhere or leaving him.  I hope he gets over this quickly because it is breaking my heart to see him this way.  Yesterday we were at my sisters house yet again and my Mamma, sisters, Grandmother and cousin and her baby were all there and Kobe was stuck to my side the whole time and was really uneasy.  My Mamma had planned on taking him with her home for these two days I am working now and she was going to bring him back to me tomorrow afternoon when I get off work but he would never have made it.  He would have cried his little heart out and she would have had to bring him back to me. 

Next weekend the boys are all going to stay with my Mamma because I am working Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12 hours each day.  My brother in law has been a life safer for me and has been watching the boys (Tyrique and Markus can be home alone but they go to his house to check in) but I want to give him a little break and asked my Mamma if she can watch them for me.  Of course Amma (Grandma) was eager to get her boys for the weekend so they will go to her house on Thursday.  The boys can´t wait to go and I am sure Kobe will be okay because his brothers will be with him.

Okay, enough for now.  I am done with my Monday Madness and am going to get back to work.  Have a great Monday everyone!!

Just Thursday!

Now, you all know that my girl Abby has this great survey thing going on on Thursdays.  She calls it Just Thursday.  I am playing along again this week and you can too.  All you have to do is click here and you will be directed to her blog where you can play along :o) 

Outside my window.. I see TAXI´s waiting to pick up passengers leaving the airport.  Outside the other window there are airplanes :o)

The time is.. 8:38 am

Today I feel.. great!!!  I went to sleep early and even though I woke up a little after 4 am I feel really good.  Today is a great day :o)

I am thinking.. about all the painting I will be doing at my sisters house this weekend!!  Just in case she reads this...I think I´m getting sick...I feel a cold coming on, stomach flu, swine flu, something LOL!!!  I told her that I am calling in sick next time she moves cause I am so sick of moving hahaha!!!

At the moment, I am thankful.. to have a job and I am really thankful for the help I am getting from my family (my brother in law especially) with the boys.

I am going.. CRAZY!!!  LOL  I´m kidding.  I´m not going anywhere anytime soon though.  I have to work until 5:30 pm and that is a long way off so I am just gonna sit here until then.

I am wearing.. Black pants (not ones who´s zipper eats my skin...thank you very much) and a black shirt.  I am waiting to get my uniform and until then I am just going to have to wear black clothes!!!

I wish.. I could lose some weight (I just had a pastry LOL).
I am reading.. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  My sister just let me borrow it and I am going to start reading it tomorrow when I am off.  I just finished some book called Dreaming Anastasia that my teenage sister lent me.  That one was pretty good.

I am working on.. helping my sister with her new house.  I don´t have much going on at my own house now that my kitchen is done (I will post pics soon...I promise).

I am hoping.. that the boys will be okay with me working away from them.  Kobe had a hard time last night after I got home and told me that I was not allowed to go to work today.  Poor thing.  Tyrique and Markus did okay because they got to be at my sisters house and they love being over there.

I am hearing.. my boss talk on the phone and people around the airport talking.

Around the house.. There are a few toys laying around and a dish or two in the sink but other than that the house looks good. 

I bet you didn't know.. I am an over achiever and I am always striving to be my best :o)  I forgot how much fun it is to work and learn new things and stimulate my brain LOL!

One of my favorite.. I love movie nights with the boys.  We haven´t had one of those in a long time!  We need to do that soon!
Have a great Thursday!!!

A letter

Dear Zipper on my pants,

Please return the chunk of skin that you ripped out when you decided to be scared of heights and zip down all by yourself. 

Thanks...your scared owner that has to wear you for another 5 hours,

PS. Where did those two holes in my crotch come from??  Were they there this morning or is this your way of telling me that we are growing apart???
