This is a LED light up watch I got for my son on a mini vacation w/my hubby, Superman. We really deserved a break, but I miss my kids terribly whenever I leave. The guy who sold me this seemed so slimy. He charged me $20 bucks and told me he'd replace the battery because they don't last. I said, I'm from out of town, just give me a break on the price. He wouldn't. I know I got had, I just don't know by how much. I think $10 bucks, but it was for my baby, so whatever.

Okay, I seem to have lost my footing again. I've done nothing in the last month except work. I can't let money guide my life or I am destined to be miserable. So here I go again. Starting fresh. Exercise, loving me, taking time, and crafting.
I must admit. I am exhausted by my children. It has been rough with no school. I can't wait until school starts. It forces me to be on a schedule and gives me a little time alone.
I started looking for pictures to post to my blog and did not realize how difficult that could be. I don't know where to go. I guess I will have to start taking a lot of pictures myself. Where do all the great bloggers get their pictures? If you know, holla.....

My chest has been hurting lately. I thought I was having a heart attack. You know I thought I could actually feel the cholesterol building in my arteries starting to block them which would result in my early death. I had started telling Doc (my smart lover) the best way to spend the insurance money, kids' social security checks, etc, when he told me that I have not been moving my body and that my posture is bad and getting worse (Like I didn't know that). He explained that the muscles in my chest were starting to pull down and that I needed to start doing something. So today, I did a little pilates/yoga and feel somewhat better. I have let myself go a little (I've got kids) and I have to start taking a little time for myself. Here I go on a journey to find the me I used to love. It's now or never.
I really hate exercise. I don't really hate it, but I get bored or rather, I always find something better to do. I think in order to make it exciting, I'm going to pretend that I am "Alex" from Flashdance who works as a hard-ass welder by day (Librarian--same thing) and a sexy dancer with a preference for red stilletos at night (I'll have to settle for red flats). I have read every book, tried every diet, and checked out every lead to live a better, healthier life. Now I think I will just fantasize (lie to myself) and see how far I get. What do you think? You too, Ladies and Gentlemen, can fantasize yourself to a better life, just follow my lead. Although I am not quite sure where we're going. Here we go..........
While out at Walmart, I found a cheapy pajama pattern and some $2.00 flannel and Wa-la, a cute pajama gown. This is MY FIRST COMPLETED SEWING PROJECT in like 10 years. I'm so proud. This is the beginning. I plan to be a designer of children's clothing and women's clothing and accessories.....Here we go
Fashion for kids
Well, I'm sorry to report, it wasn't good. Don't get me wrong, my broth was bangin'. The chicken and sausage were good, but the seafood mix....Yuck. What was wrong, you ask? Well, it had a lot of wierd octopus/squid pieces in it. Though they didn't taste bad, it something gross about putting a tail like thing in your mouth and swallowing. I felt like I was eating rat tails....Yuck, and of course, I couldn't put that in the kid's bowls. The crabmeat, which seemed abundant in the mix, tasted like potatoes. Whatever fake crab meat that was, neither had the texture of crab nor the taste of any seafood I've ever tasted. The shrimp were so tiny, they disappeared after boiling, so I didn't even know that I had ate any.
If you are thinking about buying this, DON'T......
My children are lovely, but I am surely glad school is starting. Too much idle time makes them behave badly. They are hyper. They eat too much. They watch too much television. They really need a planned day everyday. I am a good mother, but I really have to get better at preparing ahead of time for our adventures together. That would be in every area of life. I need to plan, cleaning, shopping, time together, exercise, date night for Doc and I and healthy food preparation. Mac will be attending a new school this fall that is not right around the corner, so the organization has no choice but to happen.
Elle had a seizure on Saturday and scared us so. She used to have them a long time ago, but then we could tell. Her breathing was poor. However, she hadn’t had them for a while and we thought she had outgrown them. Well they are back with a vengeance. And I began to ponder her living with me as her guardian for the rest of her life. Doc says I am overreacting, but how can I let my beauty be out of my sight when something so quietly obscene like these seizures could take place. I need to know she’s okay. I guess I am glad they happened before she started preschool this year, so I know and can advise her teacher. She has been put back on medication. Trileptal. I am disappointed and relieved at the same time.
