The title says it all. There is a mountain of it sitting in my laundry room. I actually close my eyes when I open the door. Funny thing is it was all done on Tuesday. Even down to the cloth napkins that had been sitting in the laundry basket for about a month. I guess I am just going to wait till the Laundry Fairy comes and takes care of it. Either that or I am training the girls early :)

Day 1

Well summer is here (and I would love to say "The time is right for dancing in the streets) and today is Day 1. so far Sammie has ripped my mouse pad, Julia threw a pen and it went all over the wall and the floor, there is a huge mess upstairs, and right now they are banging on the walls. You know what? I could care less :) I want a good summer and we all deserve it! I am sure I will have my moments, but right now I am making myself be positive for everyone's sake. Now talk to me next week when Jon leaves for business. I might need some reminding about this post :)

I forgot I had a blog for a little while. Computer crashed, I went away, busy with school stuff, I totally forgot. I will update now that I remembered.

Potty Training Sucks!

Well I am at the point again in my life where I am the Princess of Potty. Sammie was right there for at least 2 months, then they moved her into another class at preschool and I feel like we are starting all over again. When I look back on Julia, I can not tell you how I potty trained her because honestly she did it herself. Sammie on the other hand has proven to not be so inclined. I realize that they all have their own timing on this sort of thing, but she knows what she is doing- she just chooses not to. So I am kinda back to square one. Asking, reminding, telling, sometimes raising my voice, all to get her to sit on the potty. I will soon revisit every bathroom in town, making sure they are all convenient for when she has to go. So please wish me luck- she needs to be fully potty trained for our next and VERY cheap preschool (see why I am stressing) I hope soon I will be the Princess of Panties instead :)

An Eyeball is Still an Eyeball

If you haven't even watched "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmer" on the Travel channel- check it out. You will be totally grossed out, but fascinated at the same time. I am telling you though no matter how well you deep fry, stew, cover in chocolate sauce, or smoother it in cheese- eating an eyeball is still eating an actual eyeball. Even if I wasn't told what it was, I am pretty sure I would know it was something gross. I wonder how many times he has gotten sick or how much his bill for Imodium is :)

7 years

Today you turned 7. 7 I say! Wow has time gone by. I remember the first night that we had brought you home from the hospital and how your Daddy and I just stared at you. You cried for the next three months straight :) I could have never imagined the kind of little girl you would become. You love all the girlie stuff that I do- makeup, clothes, listening to Hannah Montana as loud as we can in the car. Yet you have your rough and tumble side- riding your bike, playing with the boys. You take after your Dad with your artistic abilities (because I have none) and we are so impressed with all that you have learned this year. I love when you cry during the sad parts in movies or how you must pet every animal you come in contact with. You are so much like me in so many ways that it is hard to stay mad at you. I always wanted a little girl and you were my wish come true. Thank you so much for making my life, along with your Daddy's and Sissy's life complete. We love you and hope that your birthday was one to remember. I love you!

The Update

Well things have been pretty well in The Mommy Files household. Nothing too exciting. Here is a little update so that I actually have a post! The goal is do this everyday (or every other day realistcally lol)

Sammie had her third brithday this month. It made me very sad to see my last baby turn three. In my mind I know I am done having children, but in my heart I will always miss that little tiny baby I once had. We had a HUGE jumpy that we had to put in the park across the street from my house because it was so big. The kids loved it! Both of them passed out around 7 that night and it's very rare for that to happen. Sammie has grown into quite a little girl. She says things sometimes and I am like "Did you really just say that?" She told me the other day "Mommy I have had a long day." I thought that was the cutest thing I have ever heard! She has a slight obession with lip gloss so I have to hide them. I swear she is going to have a lip gloss ball in her stomach because in all honestly I think more goes in her mouth than on her lips. She is just a funny little thing and really wants to be a big girl!

Julia will be 7 in two weeks. Now if I gave birth to a Little Princess this would be it! She is very good actually, but sooooo girly! I bought her high heeled sandles the other day and you would have thought they were gold! She has to pick out her clothes to match her earrings and I have to force her to wear tennis shoes to school. I just look at her and think how beautiful she is- then I think I am in so much trouble when she is a teenager. She has become such a little artist over the past 2 years that I am thinking she will be using that in her future (well I hope she does) She also likes to watch me cook so maybe that will be one of her passions. She is just a joy and I am glad to be her Mommy :)

Jon has been in court for the last 3 weeks on a trial. He was so nervous at first, but he really got into it. They had to call it a mistrial because of one person that refused to change thier mind. So much for all that! He is now adjusting to life back in the office since they moved him to the new buliding. He is also very spoiled since the new office is 3 miles from home and he has a wife to make him lunch everyday!

As for me, I have become a gym rat. I work out 4 times a week at least and I love every second of it. I also started seeing a Dietian so that I can get my eating on track. As of today it is Day 71 and I have lost almost 19 bls. I feel so good! Yet going down in sizes has made shopping too much fun which is good and bad. I am just happy to make a lifestyle change since diabetes and heart diease runs in my family. I hope within the next year to run a half marathon then maybe on to a full one. We will see! Hard to run with boobs :)

Well that is about it. All updated! I hope to get back into the swing of things :) Thank you for reading :)

I Used To...

I used to blog. I used to talk about the stuff going on in the house. I used to be really good at it. Now it seems I stare at the page and think "What the heck am I going to write about now?" So I am thinking I will get to the used to soon. Just need to get my act together :)

Thank you for reading!

Single Mom

Jon left for a week today in the first time in 5 years. Yes I have issues with it. Yes I am a big baby. Yes I don't like it. Yes all I think about is that I am here with two kids. Yes it sucks. Yes I will get over it.

Ok that made me feel better :) 4 days to go!!

Day 4

This year is the year that I have decided that I am not going to be fat anymore. I have had this epiphany in the past, but with my dad and uncle dying of heart attacks I knew it was time I really do something about it. So last week I visited a nutritionist and she came up with a diet (which I really not allowed to say) that would help me change my eating habits. I already exercise 4-5 times a week so that is not an issue, but I in the past year have not paid any attention to what I was eating. The thing about me is that I don't have low self esteem about what I look like, but rather I accept my weight and choose not to do anything about it. Well that needs to change. So I have a food journal, I am counting every single calorie that goes in my mouth, and I am exercising like a crazy person. In the past 4 days my anxiety about this has gone from pretty high to a low manageable outlook. They say it takes 21 days to make a habit and I am 17 days till there. So wish me luck because I am going to need it :)

The Gift Card

So I think I have mentioned this several times before in the 5 years of this blog, but I have a teeny tiny addiction to clothes. Not expensive ones, just clothes. I have a small affection for t-shirts, blouses, sweaters, and jeans. I have been so many different sizes during the last 7 years that I bet I have clothed some of the people in the town I live in with all my Goodwill donations. I still have my very first suit that I paid like $300 when I had a job. Anyway, Jon and I have been on a budget due to the messed up economy, so my clothes addiction was put on hold for several months. So I decided that I would collect all the gift cards I had in my wallet or dresser and see if there was money left on them. Sure enough, I had about $150 at various places, and even $20 at Starbucks. So the other day I went shopping for the first time just for me and I used those gift cards and some of the ones I got for Christmas, and didn't spend a thing. Now this may not be so exciting to you or seem silly, but for me not to spend money was not easy to get used to so I think it's amazing! So I suppose the whole point to this story is find those gift cards because you may be surprised :)
