The Mommy Confessions

Friday, May 29, 2009 18
Victoria over at Life Starring Ellie and Eve started a new Mommy Confession! I think it's awesome. This will give you a chance to confess something and not be judged! I am all about that. Hop on over to Victoria's site and see other Mommy Confessions!

So what do I confess? I confess that sometimes I still make Kaylyn drink out of a sippy cup just because I know how she is and I know that whatever I give her will always end up on the floor. Is that bad being since she is 5? Plus I watched the Jon & Kate plus 8 season premiere on Monday and I noticed that all 6 of the sextuplets were drinking out of regular cups and Kaylyn is 6 months older than them. Dont judge me!

I have had a pretty good weekend. But I mainly want to talk about tonight. I recently told you about Kevin's back. Well it is now time for him to go back to work...he is NOT looking forward to it at all! Since he has to be at work at 5 in the morning he has been in bed since around 8 tonight. It has been me and Kaylyn every since. I have been hanging out in the living room on the computer watching some movies with Kaylyn. I thought I would keep Kaylyn up a little late since I get to sleep in tomorrow. Well she wanted to go to bed...go figure. The night I want to keep her up she wants to go to bed! But I let her watch a movie before she went to sleep and I set her sleep timer for 90 mins. She is watching Toy Story and I just peeked in on her and she is actual still up so she just might sleep in for me. And now for me. I have been sitting here for the last hour or so just blog stalking and surfing the web. I am completely enjoying my time to myself! Hopefully I will be in bed within the next hour or so...I am in no hurry.

So for our Memorial Day plans? As for us Kevin gets off around 1 so we will be going to my MIL when he gets off for lunch and then for dinner we will be at my parents. Sometime tomorrow I have to fit in going to see my brand new cousin. I beleive he is right about 3 wks now. I got sick the week he was born so I didnt want to go see him and share my sickness with them. Smart huh? Anyway my cousins live about an hour away and they are coming up to visit my grandparents who actually live about 15 mins away from me. So hopefully I will get to see Baby Brennan and get some pics too!

Do you have any big plans?

Do I expect too much?

Wednesday, May 20, 2009 6
So I told you my husband hurt his back on Saturday right? Well he has been off all week. His back seems to be much better (apparently in my opinion) and he isnt complaining as much. He is able to get up and walk around and even drive himself somewhere. He is able to walk his happy butt outside and puff on a cigarette. That in it's self says that he is fine...

Well let me tell you what happened. I want someone to tell me if I am crazy or what? I received a call yesterday from a lady (Latino descent, very nice) questioning about our home. Because's still on the market. She asked when she could come see it. I told her how about Wednesday night around 6 (which is tonight now)? She said that would be great. I knew I got off work at 4 so I would be home around 4:45. So I told my husband that we had someone interested and they would be here on Wed. night. He said ok. Now I will tell you upfront I did not ask him to clean or pick up. But in my mind I thought he should because let's face it...if he can walk outside (down the stairs) and out to his car to get a cigarette and then pollute the air with the smoke (sorry if you smoke...I just dont) then in my mind he can pick up the freaking house! Well maybe next time I need to spell it out. When I walked in the living room was still a mess with toys and DVD's scattered all over the floor. I walked into our room and there was clothes in the floor along with 2 baskets of clothes not washed. I walked back to Kayly's room and noticed that yes indeed...Hurricane Kaylyn had struck and FEMA hadnt yet handled the disaster. This is what her room looked like...

So I started picking up the living room and muttering things (on purpose) under my breath. Really...he cant pick them up? Push them under the couch? Nothing? By the way...he is laying on the couch playing the computer which is on the coffee table and watching a baseball game on the 52" TV that we JUST HAD TO HAVE!

Kevin: "Do you really think she is going to show up?"

Me: "Well, if she does do you want her to see the house this way?"

Kevin: "I really dont care...I just dont feel like cleaning"

Me: "You really want someone to see our house like this?"

Kevin: "Yeah, I dont care."

Me: "Fine...I wont pick up anything else!!"

And I didnt...Kaylyn's room looked like it did in the pic above. I bluntly told her when she walked in that I just had gotten home from work and it seems like my husband is too good to clean up. At this point I really dont care if she wanted it or not. I just wanted to get my point across to my husband. Now dont get me wrong...I didnt expect the house to be spotless but I expected to be able to walk through the living room and Kaylyn's room.

Well she saw my house with all of it's glory because it wasnt picked up at all!

Wordful Wednesday's!

This is a picture of Kaylyn taken yesterday at her Preschool Graduation. She just received her "diploma" as they called it. I am so proud of her. I will post the rest of the pictures soon!

99th Post and update

Sunday, May 17, 2009 5
Can you believe this is my 99th post? I cant...didnt realize I has that much to say! I am working on my 100th...of course it will be a giveaway!

As for my weekend. Well in somewhat of a recent post (I think back in March) I told you about our new 46" TV. I have really grown to like my tv. I love having a big TV, and I love being able to sit down and play on the computer while watching tv. Well Friday Kevin announced they had a 52" TV that is actually cheaper than what we paid for our 46". I said "so!" His point was that he wanted to take the 46" back and get the 52" along with the difference in cash. I really could have cared was only like $135. Well Kevin insisted so yesterday we loaded up the perfectly good 46" and headed to Sams (where he works). As we are getting out of the car Kevin went to get one of those flatcarts to load the TV on. I was getting Kaylyn out of her seat and then headed to the back of the car. He lifted the TV and went to put it on the cart. As he bent over he yelped and let out a few choice words (everybody was looking at us). I asked him what was wrong. He said my back went out. I hate to admit it but I wasnt very sympathetic. So everybody walked on by and I asked him what I needed to do. He said to let him lean against the car for a minutes. Kaylyn who is the most impatient person (she gets that from me) kept asking when we were going in. On top of Kevin's cussing and complaining my nerves were shot. He then grabbed the cart and leaned against it and pushed it towards the building. He walked very slow because he couldnt put all his weight down on his left side. After a few mins we made it in and he grabbed a wheelchair and was able to wheel around in that. Some of the guys he worked with were able to load up the 52" TV into my car. I asked him if he was feeling any better and he said no that it was time to go to the ER. So we dropped off my daughter at my MIL's and headed to the ER after I and him carried the 52" TV in our house and he hooked it up to see what a good picture it had!

At the ER he was taken right back for the most part. They wheeled him back in a wheel chair and looked at him and then took him for an X-ray. They said his X-ray looked fine but really he needed an MRI but they couldnt do one there at the hospital that they would have to refer out. They felt like he herniated a disk and that was where all his pain was coming from. They gave him two shots, one pain med and the other steroid. They gave us a prescription for some muscle relaxers and a few pain pills and sent us on our way. I had to pay the $100 co-pay for the ER and then we headed to the drug store. The total came out to be close to $20 at the drug store.

I couldnt help but thinking that the $135 we got back from exchanging the TV's just went to the ER and the drug was I really coming out any better? I told my husband this and he wasnt too happy with me. But at least I got my point across:)

More Ramblings

Wednesday, May 13, 2009 4
Ok its Wednesday night...almost midnight. I once again am not sleeping. I wonder if its the nap that I took earlier tonight from 7-8?? Probably but oh well. At least not sleeping now is giving me a chance to blog stalk. Besides Nikki says that some of her frogs are missing in this post. Beside's who am I to dissapoint some of my readers. So I had a couple of things to discuss with you.

First...I am thinking of changing my blog url. Something to incorporate my name in it or something. I also want to get a prettier blog so I will probably see if Tinika is still offering free makeover's to get her business started. She did one for my Mary Kay website (I will share about it later) and I absolutely love it. She did a fantastic job! It came out better than I thought it would. Hop over to see what all she has going on and tell her I sent you!!! Hey if you have any cute thoughts on naming my new URL let me know...maybe it can turn into a contest or something...hmm...that is a thought!

Oh and another thing... I am coming up on my 100th post on this blog so of course I am going to do a giveaway. I already have something in mind. So be on the lookout for the giveaway.

Serenity is going through some tough times right now. Hop over to her blog and give her a big hug! I am really praying for her...she has become such a wonderful BF (blog friend) and I really hate to hear she is going through all of this. We have become so close over the last couple of months and I pratically talk to her everyday. So go send her some love! (((Hugs))) Serenity...know I am thinking about you!

Speaking of being close to BF's who all are you close to?

A Bug

Tuesday, May 12, 2009 3
Well I caught it...don't know where I got it but I did. I caught the stomach bug. I feel absolutely awful. I was on my way home last night and I felt so nauseated. I chalked it up to running ninety to nothing all day. I didn't even get to check my blogs yesterday because I was so busy at work. Well I grabbed some Arby's on the way home for me and Kevin. I told him I wasnt feeling so good so he let me eat and then I went to bed. This was around 9:30 last night. Well around 11 I woke up and I felt so sick...awful feeling. After a few mins finally everything I had ate before came up...I felt some better but not great. I layed back down and ended up throwing up all night for the rest of the night. Kevin got up for a few mins and asked if I had the swine flu...I told him no!! He asked if I was pregnant...I can't be I just had my period last night so no.

After throwing up all night I called into work because I didn't get any sleep at all. I called the Dr first thing to see if I could get some phnergan or something. They wanted me to come in...great! Now I get to throw up in front of everyone! We made it up there without me throwing up (thank you God!!) and they did a pregnancy test just in was negative. I knew it would be. They went a head and gave me a shot of phnergan...I think I love that shot! It worked so fast...I started to feel somewhat better but very sleepy. They gave me a prescription of the suppository (yay me!) phnergan. Glad to say didnt have to use those! I came home and slept for the most part of the day and now I am feeling pretty good. Not great but good.

Now I am sitting here surfing the web and watching American Idol. I hope everyone has a wonderful night!

Rambling on

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 4
Yes, I am still MIA...I am not totally ignoring my blog. I just have been so busy that I haven't had time to do anything. Kevin had surgery on Monday. He has 8 kidney stones in his left kidney and 2 in his right...or vice versa. Surgery took seems anyway. We were told to be there at 5 am and he would be the first one back. Well we were there at 5 am and they didnt start the surgery until 8 am. He was in the recovery room for almost 2 hrs so I didnt get to see him till around 10:45 am. Around 12:30pm he was discharged. We napped for the rest of the day. He is still very sore but is up & out of bed.

Now at work...I have been having problems with my computer so I shipped it to our corporate for the Tech guys to take a look at. I did this Friday. They said I should have my computer back by Tuesday. Well it is Wednesday night and I still dont have it....they said it would be first thing Thursday now...lets keep our fingers crossed.

Since I havent had a computer since Friday I am so behing on everything...including blogging. I have been trying to get my Mary Kay business up & running. It's going good so far. My debut party is Saturday May 23rd. So if anyone wants to get anything let me know. It's free shipping!!! Check out my website at Any order's over $50.00 received a FREE gift.

Not only do I have my debut party coming up I have set up some free facials with some friends to help get me started! I am very excited about this as well. This will help give me some practice on what to say and to learn more about the products. I dont know everything yet...

Ok, I am off to watch American Idol and bathe my very dirty little girl. She went to church with my FIL and came back very dirty. I felt like I needed to hose her off before she came in the door! I hope everyone is having a great night!

Gymnastics Exhibition

Saturday, May 2, 2009 5
This morning was Kaylyn's Gymnastics Exhibition at 9:00 am. Ugh...I didnt want to get up but we did. I was thinking it was going to be each age group but no each class was doing the routine at the same time as the other classes. It was very distracting but was over with within 30mins. Here are some pics I got this morning. Sorry for the blurry ones...I really hate my camera. I want a new one so bad!

A Visitor

Friday, May 1, 2009 10
***Below is TMI that I want to share and it has to do with vomit, periods, pads, tampons & something between my legs. If you don't want to hear about it don't read it. I warned you!***

So as you know from my post last night that I have been sick. The 2 shots that I received yesterday was a antibiotic & steroid. So I took an Ambien and passed out by 8:30 last. I didn't want to get up this morning. All the way to work I felt so nauseated. In my head I was thinking maybe this is morning sickness but man did I want that feeling to go away. I was at the red light about half a mile from work and I was sitting there and it hit me like a wave...I thought oh no I am in the car. The lane I was in I was blocked from pulling over and there were cars on both sides of me so I did want to hurl out the window. Everybody would see and there are certain things I like to do behind closed doors or stalls lol!I looked around and I found the famous walmart bag. It didn't even have any holes! Jackpot! I emptied it out because it had one of Kaylyn's outfits in it. The light turned green so I kept driving & praying just let me get to work, just let me get to work especially since no one would be there...not at 7am. So I pulled in...and there sat one of our work vans! Damn! That means Ed is here...just what I want to do is blow past him and have to explain I am sick. So I turned into the parking lot on 2 wheels cuz let's just face it...I didn't know how much longer I could hold it. I grabbed my purse, walmart bag, coffee & keys and ran to the door. It was locked! I looked in to see the lights on and the alarm off. Woo hoo! I dint have turn the alarm off so that will save me some time but I did have to unlock 2 deadbolts before I could get it. I unlocked the doors and flung the door open threw my stuff in the middle of the floor in the office and sprinted to the bathroom. As I ran I noticed nobody was actually there (can I get another woo hooo!!!). I ran into the bathroom & well you know...threw up. I thanked God that I made it to the bathroom while thinking "it's been so long since I have thrown up and how much I hate it!"

When I was pregnant Kaylyn I had THE BEST pregnancy you could have. I was never sick. I had no morning sickness at all. The only thing I complained of was being tired. I ate everything in sight (it shows on my a$$). But now I am very worried that the next pregnancy will be me & the toilet becoming best of friends! I hope not but we will see.

I brushed my teeth and came out to the office. Still there wasn't anybody there...fine with me. After a few mins my stomach really started cramping. Hmmm...I thought. Sure enough I started my period. So I guess that means I am not pregnant. It was a very unexpected visitor. I never know when I am going to start. I am one of those irregular people that either had a period every 2 weeks or months whenever the hell it wants to show up. Honestly it's been almost 3 months since I had my last one. So I guess I am due. So now I am thinking that my throwing up has something to do with my period. Who knows with my crazy body!

***Warning...TMI ahead*** I warned you!!!***

So I go to my purse to get a tampon. Ugh oh! I didn't have one....I usually always have some. What to do. There are only 2 women that work in my office and 1 is me & the other has already had a complete hysterectomy so she was no good to me. I looked under the cabinet in the bathroom and "hallelujah, hallelujah" there was ONE big, thick (super absorbency) maxi pad (looked like one from the 90's if you want my opinion) underneath. So I normally use tampons but for one day I can deal with this...but I couldn't because as I was opening the pad I remember I had on THONGS! Yup, thongs that day. Needless to say I am blaming that on my hubby and I am cussing him at the same time (see this post)! Well I thought I am just going to have to make this work. So I place the big, thick pad onto my panties/thongs and noticed obviously the bottom of the pad was going to hang over some. Yup it did. So I pulled up my panties and "adjusted" them. Of course the pad had to adjust to and it was too big for the "thong" part so it did hang to the left. I sucked it up and headed back to my desk.

As I was walking to my desk I noticed that every time I put my left foot forward the "sticky" part of the pad stuck to my left leg and then would peel off as I put my right food forward. So every time I took a step it felt like someone was ripping a band aid off of my left inner thigh between my legs. Maybe it will "wax" my inner thigh & that is less I have to shave lol! This morning I made my mind up that I wouldn't be at work that long today because I wasn't feeling well anyway so I knew I could deal with the "ripping the band aid off" feeling for a little while. Well I ended up staying until 3!

No, my day doesn't end there...what fun would that be. I came home & took a shower to get that "feeling" to go away. Then I notice I don't have any tampons here! It has been so long since I have had my period I forgot to pick up some more. I did have some pantyliners. So needless to say I felt like it was granny pantie time! I put them on and the pantyliner fit perfect. I then call my hubby at work. He told me to make it quick because he had a couple of things to get done. I asked him how much he loved me. He said more than the whole planet. I said can pick me up some tampons. He said aw man no sex tonight. I asked him whatever gave him that clue...I hope you are catching my sarcasm, besides I am sick! He said fine asked what kind and said he would see me later. You know I have to admit he is a good one. I know I can ask him to pick up tampons and he will. That pretty much completed my day!

I hope you all had a better day!
