Swin Flu Stinks!

Well, I can honestly say that the last 2 weeks have been miserable. Madison was sick first then came Maggie, Me and James! I didn't blog b/c I was sick or taking care of someone sick.....So....there is my excuse. My next excuse deals with the same things so there for I did not exercise. But that won't stop me the rest of this week. I have doped my family up on tamiflu and hopefully we are good to go! I've been thinking that this stay at home wife stuff is kinda boring. Now that the girls are in school it's not what I expected it to be. I thought I'd party it up once they were there. I don't! So I find myself bored watching the same shows over and over again on TV, cleaning a clean house and not knowing what to do with myself. I'm wondering how long this boredom will go on before I snap out of it and find something productive to do with my time. I would love a job to keep me busy during the day but I def. want off at precisely 3 pm to pick the girls up from school and I want holidays that they have. When I find a job like that I'll have it made. :D

Okay so I'm Baaaaack! Yes, I know I've been gone for a while now. But I'm here now and that's what matters. So I'm getting back on the fitness wagon. It stinks trying to eat right and exercise. I have heard people say that once you start exercising you will get addicted.....ummmm yeah....I get addicted to Twix Bars or Facebook or True Blood, but exercise, not so much. I wish I just had the genes that Natalie Portman has but I don't so I can either keep wishing or just do something about it. I would post a before picture on here but I may fail again and then I'd feel like crap b/c I would know that everyone that looks at my blog would know what I STILL look like. So hopefully I can remember to write daily. I can facebook Daily so I'm sure I can manage to write a little in a Blog each day. We will see.

So I did in fact go to the fall fest and I only took one child. Maggie was so bummed that Madison decided she wanted to stay with her cousin Jacob and build a fire with her Uncle John. Maggie is NOT shy but with out Madison she is a bit more reserved. I painted faces and she stood next to me the whole time. We FROZE our tails off. It was so cold and windy that my hands were barely able to paint. I then got moved to a fishing booth. I clipped candy on the end of a fishing pole and the kids seemed to love it. I thought It was kind of corny, but none the less the children were having a great time. Maggie on the other hand was shivering because she wasn't running around like the rest of the kids. She was sitting next to me and refused to go and play. She wanted me to paint her face but I had to move to the fishing station and when my time was up helping out I was too cold to stand in the face painting line. I felt sorry for her because she thought that she was going to go to the Fall Fest and have an amazing time jumping in the fun house and getting candy and playing games like the rest of the kids. She told me that If I took her to Wal-mart she would be okay with not getting something painted on her face. I was all for that Idea......until we got to Wal-mart and she decided one thing really wasn't enough. She felt that she needed three things to make her feel better about the bad day she was having. I was fine with it. It's not like I do this all the time anyway. We walked down isle after isle looking and searching for the best three things she could find. She found an Art Carrying case that had markers, crayons, map colors, glue and paper. She was in heaven. This is my artsy child. She colors all the time and loves for me to tell her just how marvelous she is at it. Then we went to the Shoes and she found some Ugg like boots that she had to have because MOM has some and "We can wear them on the same day and look alike." Last we went down the candy isle and she found some Christmas candy cane holder with chocolate in it. She had to have it. So I gave it to her. She was so sweet and so good while we were freezing out booties off at the fall fair, I couldn't say no to the three items she wanted. They weren't crazy expensive and we were able to spend some quality time on one. We got home and James and Madison were making a fire in our wood burning stove. I love that thing. We took baths and got cozy in bed and watched The Wizard of Oz. It was a good day!

Fall Fest

I'm about to take the girls to the fall fest at their school. They are so excited and I offered to help out while I was there. I got a surprise when they asked if I could draw. I said yes because can't everyone? They filled me in on what I was going to be doing.....painting faces. I can't draw that good, but I'll do my best. Hahah I don't know if I'm really down with getting in all of these children's faces, seeing as how it is that time of year for colds and the flu. Antibacterial wipes will be right by my side, fighting off the germs.

The girls woke me up to giggling. This morning they have played together so well. I am so happy that they are like best little friends today. They counted their money in their piggy banks and put it all together and decided they wanted to go shopping after the fall fest and get something that they can play with together. I over heard Madison telling Maggie that she needed to put her money in the bank. Maggie didn't like her idea. Madison was explaining how if she put her money in the bank she could make three dollars or something...she said. Maggie was like...Wow! Three dollars!.....LOL, they crack me up.

I think today will be a much better day than yesterday. Hahhahahaha

It's been a while.

Well, I'm back. Long time no write right! I've been busy. Well, not so much I've just been Blah. But anyway, it's Friday night and the girls are hunkered down on the couch watching Shark boy and Lava Girl. I'm here on the computer bored and figured I'd stop by my blog and look at how long it's been since I've written. It's been too long....

Maggie is loving Kindergarten and I am so glad she does. She reads so well. I'm so proud of her. She has been getting help with Mrs. Morris and let me just say that woman can teach. Dick and Jane are her favorite books to read. Then there is Madison, she is making great grades in school. She's always done really well in her studies. Where she gets that I don't know, but I'm very thankful for it. As for me, I am at home all the time and I think sitting at home all day- every day- is kind of depressing. I have had time to read....The Shack (really interesting, made me think in a way I never thought of before), The love dare (still reading it), Daily Devotionals and lots of magazines. I think being a stay at home wife is nice but lonely. I guess I need to join some club or something. Anything to get me outta this house. Lately I've been riding around in Latch when I have nothing else to do. I've been gravitating towards the oil top road I used to live on. I miss it. I miss being young. I miss my family members that have died. I feel like life is flying by and the older I get the faster it goes. I miss the country and that old road I used to walk down each day. Does everyone go through things like this? I miss it terribly. I think being at home with children for all these years and now not having any here with me, makes me lonely. Is that strange. I can't quite explain it. I feel like I don't have any other purpose. I was in charge of raising the girls and now they are gone 8 hours a day and I sit alone reminiscing about old times. I can for sure say I don't want any more kiddos. I am NOT that lonely. Hahaha, but I need something. Like a job....a job that I go into work at 8am and get off at exactly 3:15 on the dot to pick the girls up from school. LoL, but doesn't every one with little kids. I've been lucky enough to stay home all these years and now I am just in a rut. I'll get out of it. I just figured I'd write about how I was feeling at the moment. Maggie keeps running in and out of here talking to me. I guess I could get off of here and pay some attention to my little girls, who are going to be big girls before I know it. I'm off. Hopefully I'll be back soon to write in this blog more. This one is depressing. Blah
