This one's for you Shauna!

OK I'm blogging again and I STILL HAVE LOTS OF GAS. I think something crawled up my heiney and died! Jonathan is even getting grossed out! I'll just blame it on hormones.

Laine and Bowen had the old PTA program on Monday night, there were 15,000 parents there. We arrived right on time and got a seat in the next to the last row. Bowen was so cute in his goat costume! Laine was treated to new boots and a new belt for her attire. All her teachers told me how she was going to steal the show with her dancing...ummmm it was more like dazed and confused dancing. She did the moves but with this glazed over look, I think it was a combination of looking for us and weirded out by all the people. Of course she was still the cutest one on stage!

I'm not sure what to do now that the Olympics are over, it was great TV every single night.

Linda I get out of school at 3:30, come as soon as you can! I hope Robin can sleep on the way so we can jump on the shopping! Yipee!

Questions of the Day...
What make -up item could you not live without?

What is your absolute favorite piece of clothing?
The grey sweat pants I got from Linda for Christmas.

Wednesday Random Thoughts

Why is the font on this post so big?

I have had lots of gas lately.

My TOT coach brought me lunch today, Black Eyed Pea, Yum.

Laine got two spankings today, one for unbuckling her seatbelt on I-20 and the other for back talking me.

I can't wait to see Robin and Linda and Koby. Especially excited to see my niece/nephew (well sort of) growing in Robin's tummy.

I was supposed to get a cavity filled tomorrow, I called to make sure they take our new insurance and the number is no longer a working number...what the heck?! Now what do I do about this stupid cavity?

It feels so good, feeling good again!

Tomorrow is PAYDAY!

My father-in-law has a respiratory infection, he was supposed to run in the Cowtown 1/2 marathon this weekend but he's too sick. I feel really bad for him, I know he was excited to come and run.

Let's keep playing!

If you could compete in one Winter Olympic Event what would it be?
The snowboard cross.

Do you tee-tee in the shower?

If you could change one thing about your appearance what would it be?
My boobs. Not really big, but after nursing Laine they got EVEN SMALLER, if you can believe that's possible. Just like a 36 B or so.

What are you proudest of?
Easy, my family. All of them, we're all pretty cool.

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Probably nursing my children for as long as I have. I don't love it but I know it's best for them...and free! Or running the 1/2 marathon. Or graduating from college with good grades.

What is your best characteristic? Physical and Personality wise

Physical- my legs or my eyes.
Personality wise- Easy going just like my father...
really I'm loyal, this is hard, optimistic and hopefully Jesus shows in my actions.

Q and A

What is the sickest you've ever been?
Short illness- a sinus infection I had while teaching in Weatherford
long- either when I got h.pylori or the recurrent bladder infections

What is the most pain you've been in?
OK, I didn't count the actual labor and delivery of my children but really, this hurt worse:
My milk coming and the subsequent nipple cracking, bleeding, thrush etc...

What is the best decision you've made?
Recently, getting on Zoloft.
That I can be a great mom and still teach. Thanks Mom and Dad for The Myth of the Perfect Mother.
Loving my in-laws for who they are

When were you the most surprised?
Good- finding out Laine was a girl
Bad- my wreck in Benbrook

When did you feel the saddest?
A very low point in our marriage

What is the hardest thing you've ever done?
OK, I didn't count labor and delivery here either.
Physically-Training for the 1/2 marathon.
Emotionally- being a good wife while Jonathan decided what he wanted to be when he grew up.

What scared you the most?
frightened- when a cat got in our duplex in Stephenville and went ballistic at 3:00AM.
scared- when Jonathan quit his job at Vet Outlet and we moved to Abilene.

OK, now those of with a blog have a choice, you can either answer in the comments or answer on your own blog!

This is it...

Laine and Bowen are BOTH going to Abilene this weekend to visit Mimi and Paco. Jonathan and I haven't had a decent amount of time alone in a really long time. It's so hard to schedule things like this because I always put it off for another time. I want to use weekends to soak up my children and our marriage gets put on the back burner. I know the kids will be great, I just hope I am. Anyway, thanks Mom and Dad for giving us some time together!

Today I found my first GRAY HAIR


Yes, I've been eyeing it for a few days unable to make myself check to see if it was for real. It is. Knowing my gene pool I have a pretty good chance of turning gray early. If I do inherit my father and aunt's early gray, at least I know it will be an awesome silver instead of yellowish, blondish, gray that some people have. However, you will never see that silver color on me until I turn an acceptable silver color age, say 52. Or maybe...78.

On a side note, Bowen's ears look great, the Dr. put him on a different antibiotic because of his stopped up nose.

I Love the Olympics

I'm so excited about the Winter Olympics! I love the pomp and circumstance of the Opening Ceremonies, I love the thrill of competition, I love the fact that families have a program that they can watch as a family. I'm encouraging my students to watch, although I don't think many will. I think low income and the fact that 5-10 year olds don't have control of the remote very often. We're even having Olympic competitions next week in my classes. I love it!

OK, you have to check this site out:


It's a website that will show you on a map where sexual offenders are in your neighborhood. Pretty informative.

I'm off to have a dinner prepared for me by women at my church. They have dinner for women with children under 2, it's always at a really great house and we have really good food too.

What the heck just happened?

On to the random thoughts...

Laine wants 5 horses: a unicorn, a pony, a mommy, daddy and baby horse... and she wants to skip with them.

Bowen could have been exposed to Chicken Pox when he got his tubes, has he had his varicella vac. who knows?

Ikea rocks.

My favorite song right now is Grillz

I'm excited for the Olympics to start.

I just fished a Penny out of Bowen's mouth.

Babies must have a gross radar implanted, it directs them to put nasty stuff in the mouth.

Why is it harder to make friends as a stable adult than it was when you were awkward and silly in school?

I invited two people to church in the last 5 days and I've never done that before.

Oooh I have a haircut tomorrow, it's the little things.

I think I'm going to allow myself two diet cokes a day now if I need a pick me up in the afternoon.
