A good time...

Dinner was perfect. The kids had a blast playing and we had a great time with Joni and her husband Mack. It's been too long since Tim and I found a couple to have dinner with. Joni and Mack are people that you don't have to learn to like. They are down to earth and just like Tim and I - living the best we can and hard working to provide for our families. Joni is a stay-at-home mom like me and Mack works long hours like Tim. We understand eachother as couples! It's a friendship that I will not let go of. It helps that our kids play well together too. Joni and Mack are mother and father of Courtney, 3, and Tyler, 22 months. Isaac and Courtney are joined at the hip - they play together at school and every chance that they get at home. Nicholas and Tyler have a blast together. They will be cuter when Nicholas is walking.

Speaking of Nicholas walking...
In my neglagence to blog, you haven't been updated! Nicholas is pulling up on everything in sight. He is also using anything that is tall enough to push across the floor so that he can walk. If he would let go, he'd take off running. It won't be long now!

Joni and Mack didn't leave until late last night and I was exhausted. Even though I scrubbed the house last night, with 5 kids, 4 adults and Hanna in my house, it is a disaster area. I'll be cleaning today!

~~Have a Great Day :)

Tools...

Now that I am determined to blog every single day, I am (once again) going to be changing a few things around. I want a couple of things for my blog that I either don't have the time to find or don't have the time to make - either way - I don't have time! So, should you know where to find any one of these items, please leave it in the comments!

Wanted:
Calendar! (the kind that looks like a calendar)

Okay, so that's all that I have for now. *laughing*

How was my day?

Well, it started too early for my taste. I've been a big sleepy head since I've been sick and this morning's wake up at 4:30am came a bit too early for me. Never-the-less, my day trudged through with very little interruption. Tim is home so you can imagine what the house looks like now. My dinner table is doubling as a folding table and has 5 loads folded on it. I have clean dishes in the drainer and dirty dishes in the sink. My floors are in desperate need of my attention and no one notices because of the array of toys covering it. Tomorrow I am hosting a dinner party and the morning will be filled with scents of clorox, lysol and floor cleaner. Everything must be in its place, every surface clean, dinner prepared by 6:00pm and I have to look as wonderful as I want to feel.

~~Wish me luck

Okay okay...

Life is trivial. One minute everything is fine - nothing could be better and then BAM, the bottom falls out and you don't know what in the hell happened. Such is my life. Just as I think things have finally calmed down, I get hit with a blow that knocks me back under and over my head. Let's analyze this.

House :
Good news! The house is clean but damn it hasn't shrunk. I spend my days slaving away and you can't tell from hour to hour that I have done anything. I think I'll start going through every room and throwing out the things with dust on it. I figure that if dust is present, we don't use it and thus we don't need it.

Kids :
Both of the kids have been sick again. I know that Isaac gets germs from school and I could send him through a clean room but he would still be hosting something that will get him sick and naturally, the only thing that kids will share is germs.

~Isaac - school is.....Well, honestly, I'm tired of it. I'm tired of his 'teacher'. I'd like to give her a piece of my mind and then whip her ass in front of the entire staff. It's that bad. I can't stand people that aren't forward enough with others or honest enough with themselves to act completely natural regardless of their current peers. I mean, don't kiss my ass man!


~Nicholas is teething. For those of you who have lived through this, I accept your sympathies and for those who have yet to experience this, I feel sorry for you (in advance). Baby Oragel isn't enough to keep our littlest man happy, oh no, but gnawing on Mom's nips do the trick. I'm seriously investigating my mental status on breastfeeding.

~Hanna, our dear pooch. She is a great dog: strong, beautiful, intelligent and most of the time obedient but she has a few behavioral problems. Chewing on things that are not hers. Okay, I was fine with her chewing up miscellaneous kid toys because hey! My work load got lighter but her most resent chewing no-no was Tim's favorite ball cap. As you can very well imagine, it did not go over good. Problem #2 is her strange attraction and execution of pissing on Isaac's floor. I can take her out, she can piss on everything in site and 10 minutes later I have to clean up piss on Isaac's floor. It is only one particular spot. I don't understand this! (help if you can) and last but not least the trash contents destroyer. *sigh* Her favorite thing to do, while unsupervised, is trash my house - literally. I don't like trash.

~Tim my wonderful husband whom I love with all my heart but can't stand him and I would like to beat the hell out of him about right now. The regular homely stress is bad enough without dealing with an insensible husband. For the last few months he has had the worst attitude. I'm ready to kill him and collect the life insurance money.

Now for highlights in my life that you missed:

~Riding Fence. "Riding fence" is an old cowboy term used to describe the process of inspecting and replacing or repairing fence. We have a pasture and a big dog that needs to run. It seems like the best thing in the world for Hanna would be to let her run free for a few minutes each day. My husband and I walked the fence, found 2 areas that were not Hanna-proof and proceeded to make plans to fix it.

~Mudfest '05. After purchasing supplies for the fence repairs, my wonderful husband decided to drive our car, 1995 Kia Sportage, into the pasture. Folks, take my advice and never drive a Kia Sportage into a pasture. 6 hours later and a friend's 4x4 pick-up truck later, our car was on pavement again. Status on the fence - half finished. Tim did finish the project the next day though.

Well folks, I hope that was enough to tie you over until tomorrow.
