Haven't Been on All Week

Sorry I haven't been on all week (Mainly to myself). Every time I'd try to get on the computer, Aaron was hogging it, and when it was free, I was busy doing other stuff.

But that won't matter anymore! Aaron's Gma bought him a laptop as a graduation present! Woohoo!! It's really nice too!

Anyways, I gotta run, have to look at a job opening!!! Let's hope!!

Triumph and Aggrivation

Today was a two edged sword.

I took a test for the Fed. Census people. Meaning, I'll be going door to door (most likely) but hey, I'd get paid $14 and hour for doing so!! Woohoo!!! I took the test, and got a 27 out of 28!! So, I kicked the test butt! Yes! I have a good chance of being called up for a job.

I went to pick up Xander from Gma's, and I could tell he was getting pretty tired. So, we went and grabbed a quick bit at Super Burrito. He wanted nachos, BEGGED for them, and hardly ate them. I told him this was lunch, and if he doesn't eat, well, that's it.

It went down hill from there. I had to run by the store to pick up some taco mix for tonights' dinner. He didn't want to go in the cart, threw a fit. Then he calmed down. He then had a spatula (I needed a new one) and was poking me in the boob with it. I took it away and he cried, no, he sobbed!

We get out to the car and load up, my brother calls me. So, I'm on the phone. While on the phone, he's making horrid, loud noises. After several attempts to ask him to stop. I hung up and told him to knock it off, he can't do it.

I proceeded to lecture him on listening, that he's not doing it and needs to. He said he was sorry.

I get home, tell him to run potty (he said he had to poop on the way out of the store). Instead, he runs in and starts popping bubble wrap. So, I get upset again, and tell him he'd better go potty. He goes. I tell him he needs to lay down in bed now, he's in time out. I'm in the bathroom pottying myself and he's just running around.

So, I pick him up, put him in bed and hold him down to be like, "Hey, calm down, you need a nap." He was spitting at me, and crying. He then wiggled an arm loose and clocked me right in the cheek!! It hurt really bad. I screamed in pain, which scared him, I think.

Then he cried again, said sorry and cuddled up to me to sleep.

He's asleep now, and my face still hurts. *sigh*

And I have to wake him up in a few b/c I have to go to physical therapy. Good times!

So, it was a good day, and a bad one!!

Potty, potty, potty!!!

"Momma, I have to go potty!" Is a very common phrase in my house now. So is, "I have to go poo poo!" My favorite phrase used? "Momma! I poo pooed! I get gum!!!"

If you haven't guess, I think we have officially potty trained Xander. He wear underwear in the morning and after nap. He only has a pull-up on when he sleeps, so nap times and bed times are the only time now.

His favorite undies? The Lightning McQueen and Mater underoos. He always asks for them.

I can check-off one more thing off my list!! My goal was to have him potty trained within 6 months. I did it in a little over a month.

I'm so excited! No more diapers! Well, this pack has lasted us a LONG time. The only thing I don't like? How much he has to go to the potty! Sometimes I don't believe him, because he just went. But, he'll keep insisting and I'll take him and I'm always surprised how much he pees! lol



Well, I had sharing time today for Primary (pretty much a lesson for all the kiddies). We're singing on March 15th in front of our ward (about 200ish people) for our Ward Conference. It's going to be great! They're singing very well, but we keep mixing up some parts of the first and second verses.

So, I had planned for a whole half hour to work on this song. I thought I'd make it a fun game. Where we take pictures of the words and put them up until we have the whole song. I drew and colored (well, Aaron helped on the coloring) the words. Problem? I did ALL the words, totaling 90 words (it's really 91, but I took two words and combined). We go about 15 words put up. The kids did NOT dig it. They were pretty restless. We did a couple of songs to get some wiggles out, but it just didn't work out.

I finally gave up for lack of time, and we ran through the song a few times. I think they'll be good. We have a couple more weeks to do it.

I'll try again!!!

Aaron Graduated!!!

I'm soooo excited! Aaron got his last grade back from school! He has graduated with his Associates Degree!

I'm so proud of him! He's worked so hard. He's been doing school and working two jobs. He really is Superman!!

Had a GREAT night at work last night! It was AMAZING! The posted our commission (upsells). I usually (on a good month) get around $200.

Well, I got $432.80!!! My jaw dropped! I can't believe I had worked THAT hard to get that. I'm so thankful. I really know some one's out there looking after us! I couldn't have done it with out help. I really believe that!!

Cleaned the church this morning and stop by a friends. Now it's time for a nap and then working on Jr. Sharing time! We have to sing "I Love to See the Temple" in ward conference.

Anyhoo, off to bed!

A Little Bummed

So, I dragged my carcass out of bed this morning. I was sooo tired, didn't want to move. I get out side with Xander, only to realize that I had left my key in the car!

I took it to a friends' house to have it looked at as it is leaking fluid. And when I got it back, I left the key in the, well actually Aaron's car. B/c I was driving Aaron's car at the time.

We went to Macaroni Grill last night. Xander was misbehaving, and I told him one more and we're going home. So, we just sat down to the main course (they had a special, salad, main dish and desert for 11.99!!). When he started acting up again, Aaron took away his candy that we were saving for after dinner. He started to cry. So, I grabbed him and told Aaron to bag up my food, that Me and Xander were leaving.

Aaron looked at me and said, "Are you serious?!"


So, Xander screaming about half way home. Finally realized mom means business. He had the "happiest" time-out I'd ever seen. He understood what he did wrong. It was pretty cool. But hopefully he'll believe me next time I threaten him if he's bad.

Anyhoo, that's it for now. I'm awake and want to go back to bed...

Feeling a Little Better

Feeling a little better today. Went to Yoga this morning. That really seems to start my day off right.

Aaron, Xander and I went to see a movie last night. We saw New In Town with Renee Zelwigger. It's really cute!! She's this big time corporate person for this big company, and they just received a new plant in their division. She lives in Miami and has to go up to Minnesota to deal with the plant. It's so funny!!!!

That helped out a little, having some time with Aaron.

My car is leaking oil though. Good thing we just got our tax refund!!! I also have a friend from work that does the work, so he's a lot cheaper. He replaced my water pump for a total of $85 bucks (including parts), whereas the big time auto guys wanted $300. So, he's for sure worth it!! I just hope it's nothing too serious!!

Anyhoo, that's it for today. I get to take Aaron to work, so I can have a car. Woohoo!

I am going to update my 101 things to do. And probably change a few things around.

I'm Drained

Wow! I'm really drained tonight. This is my first day off in about 10 days. I'm tired, I'm grumpy and I have to get up in a few hours for yoga. I don't want to go, but then I do. I need to. I love it. It's helped me lose so much weight in a surprising amount of time.

I feel I'm in a funk again. I just don't want to do anything. I think partly it's b/c I had a week where I forced myself into "odd" daylight hours for me and then working until 2 am. Not cool. Won't be doing that again anytime soon!!

I feel like I haven't really talked to Aaron deeply in a while. I miss that. It's pretty much been, "Hi, love you, bye, have a good night." Followed by a text sent on my "lunch hour" (10 pm) asking how my boys are. To which he replies, "fine" or something like that. Once in a blue moon (like tonight) he actually ask how I'm doing. It was nice.

Sometimes I think we're sinking into and endless void of nothingness. But then I read something, or there is a nice quote, and it makes me better. :-)

I'm Back!!

Alrghty, so I've been off this week b/c I was delivering flowers for V-day.

Had a ton of fun, but just really busy!!!

I am horribly sick of my job at the hotel. The last week, I've had really, really horrid people. People that are just mean and argumentative. It was awesome!

I had a chick upset at me b/c I wouldn't change her price to match her friends' price (they made them at different times). I asked for her documents, and even her doc's showed the price. She kept arguing with me, saying I'm cheating her. I then accidental gave her the wrong cpns (my printer broke) and she said that she doesn't believe me, and wrote down my name. I told her feel free to talk to my supervisor, as she had already talked to her and back me up.

I had another jerk, who's name wasn't on the reservation (pre-paid, so we're not supposed to) arguing with me and being horrible. More arguing with me about this dumb resort fee we've started up. It's just not cool.

Why do I get to take the brunt? I'm just tired and sick of all of them. Most are really nice, but that one can really ruin your day!


Alright, time for a nap befor work!

Day 31

I think I'm going to be re-arranging some of my goals. Upon doing some of my daily goals, I'm finding I have NO time!! So I think there will be some tweaking to make some of them maybe once or twice a week.

I'm almost done with my Yoga class! Next week will be 6 weeks!! Wow! I've lost 13 lbs. since I've been doing it! I'm looser than I've ever been, stronger, and I'm even slimming down a bit! My abs are killing me this week though, she really pushed us on core strengtheners. We really don't have the money, but it's helping so much, I asked Aaron if we can squeeze it in, he said sure! So, I'm going to keep going with my Yoga!!! Woohoo!!!!!!

Aaron's B-day's tomorrow (well, technically right now.) So, I stopped off at Bully's (the only thing open this late) and got some steak kabobs (pretty cheap) so that we could have a late snack before he had to run to work. While waiting, I walked over to Safeway to pick out a card....It took me a little bit to find a card (I could have found it sooner, but taking time for food) and when I picked it out, I'm waiting, and waiting for the checker. It's a skeleton crew at night, so they have a "Honk the Horn for Service" (how cheesy, right?) if there is no, I honked once....nothing. Honked REALLY loud a few times. It's loud and obnoxious and can be heard throughout the store, so, they should have heard it. I then grab the man cleaning the floors. HE went outside, no one, he called on the phone, no one. FINALLY, about ten minutes later, a chick shows up walking casually sipping a soda, goes, "Oh my goodness! Hold on!" then SHE disappears! If I didn't need the damn card, I would have walked out by now. So finally, she's back form outside with a kid, or well, what looks like a kid. I was pissed! I thought they were out there smoking or on break..turns out they were trying to catch some kids that ran off with beer. lol.

But, because I had to wait a ton, I missed snack with Aaron. I had to just hand it to him as he was on his way to work. Thanks alot punk kids!

Day 30

Alright, so it's been a month! *whew!* I'm really trying! I've been saying my prayers every night and trying to read the scriptures or a book by one of the General Authorities. I find if I'm having a short day, and don't feel like delving into the Bible, etc, I read the quotes for women by President Hinkley.

I also wasn't feeling good at all today! I usually don't eat before yoga, b/c if you eat a ton, you get cramps. And towards the end, I got really shaky, weak and dizzy, like I needed to eat something NOW!! I wasn't too surprised, b/c it was a pretty heavy workout today.

So, as soon as class was over, I drove to the nearest Terrible's Gas Station (they are popular in Vegas and now Reno, like a 7-11, but with cheaper fountain drinks) and I bought a coke and a doughnut. I was pretty much trying to shove sugar down me as fast as I could.

I sat in the parking lot in hailing it, and I felt a little better, so I started to head to my in-laws to pick up Xander. I sat in the car for a minute thinking I was about to lose everything. I got into the house and thought I'd better go to the bathroom. I walked past Xander cuddled up with mom and quietly shut the door. I sat on the edge of the tub trying to convince myself not to....

Yeah, that didn't work. I felt better, but still pretty icky. And I had a meeting for flowers that I'm delivering next week. I thought Aaron was still at work, and mom popped in saying, "You okay?" I said no, but I had to go to that meeting. So she kept Xander until Aaron got off work.

I texted him to say go get him after work, as I only have 45 minutes to get the yoga sweat and puke smell off of me and beat it to the meeting. He never answered....I get home, and his in the yard doing work!! Grrrr..... Pick up your phone! He seemed put-off by having to pick him up, b/c by then I had regained a little color.

I had the meeting and headed home. I tried to sleep, but Xander kept bouncing in between Aaron and I (who was asleep). He then had to go potty, and hollered at me when I came in, the toilet was just full!!! Poor guy! He said his butt hurt "real bad!" and that he did the same thing at Gma's house.

So, I think we got a little bug or something. I'm still queasy, but Xander seems okay.

I'm hungry though, so I think I might grab a bowl of cereal...that's pretty tame.

Day 29 An interesting, horrid day!!

So, I have a awesome friend who is getting married (her boy proposed the day he was leaving for boot camp). they're going to elope after he graduates from camp so she can go where ever he goes.

I lost $40 dollars that was my friends, I don't know where it went, I was dropping off Xander to play and she asked if I was going to the store if I could do her a favor...I really have no clue where it is. My only hope is that it went to someone who needed it really bad, and no some dork who doesn't deserve it.

So, I had to dig into my empty pocket and come up with $40 to give back to her. While I was searching for the money, I forgot about my Dr. appt for my monthly injections. I was racing to the car from Walmart, and my car wouldn't start. I had to drop the stuff off at my friends' and I called to say I was going to be a few minutes late, saying my car didn't start, etc. They said if I get there before 10 minutes late, I'll be able to get my injections. So, I arrive, 8 minutes late, and they just fill my meds, which I had to wait a F**king hour for that. I had to re-schedule for my appt and the next one they had was on the 26th. I wanted to cry at this point. I asked the nurse if I was having a bad day that if I called up, they could fill something heavier for me being I'm going two months w/o an injection. She then looked and treated me like I'm a junky, which is awesome. She then said, "You KNOW she can't do that over the phone." In my horrid day I completely forgot about that, I said, "Oh yeah, that's why I had to do the urgent care thing." She was such a biotch! ugh! She doesn't like Xander, anytime he goes in with me, he knows where the reflex hammer is in the drawer, and my Dr. ALWAYS lets him playing...but she is always like, "Get out of there!" Ugh!!!

And on top of it, I had to pay for the "Services Rendered" AWESOME!!!! I was wanting to talk to my Dr. about my yoga and how I'm doing and also about trying to lower my dose....but NOOOO couldn't do that!!! I'm sure if I'd mentioned that, she might have treated me different...Bitch.

I'm sorry I'm swearing, but it's been a swearing day. Thankfully Xander wasn't in the car!!!!!!!!! lol.

Alright, peace out, I need to breathe!!!

Day 27&28

I feel like I'm slipping a little in my goals. I'm trying really hard, but sometimes, somedays, it's just very hard.

Aaron and I had a date tonight. It was He got a gift card for the movies, and so we went. The movie was intense! It was Taken, with Liam Neison. I really like him as an actor, this was for sure a different role for him.

I hope all are doing well!!! :-)

I'm off to Yoga in the A.M. and going to paint some more of the house. I'm getting my injections tomorrow, so I'll be able to paint. It sucks...I need drugs to let me do normal things in life. I hate it with every fiber of my being...(hopefully I spelled that right! lol)

Until tomorrow!

Day 26

Whew! What a day! I was just exhausted! I missed the Superbowl, and it was boring at work....until.....

There was a huge fight in the parking lot, apparently 5 black guys beat a white guy really bad. I have a lot of friends in security, and one of them mentioned that the Dr. in the hospital said he didn't make it.

It was sad, and my stomach bunched up in knots. I was scared a little for my safety, but the most I was wondering how angry someone must be to beat people. What happened in their life? What when wrong?

Day 24 writing and blah!

...I think it's day 24! lol

I started to re-write my novel, for the 3rd time! lol...maybe this time I'll get it right and the way I want it! I have a friend at work, she's awesome and extremely intelligent. I've been glossing over ideas with her.

Thanks Moon for helping me get back into it! Your example's been helping me! :-)

A blah day at work, nothing too exciting going on....oh well!!! Oh! I did tie a rubber band to the end of my nose at one point for a funny, and as I got home tonight, I noticed I have a bruise on the end of my nose!!! HAHAHAHA!!! Thankfully it's in the shadow areas, so it's not too noticeable!

anyhoo, off to watch Lake View Terrace with a snoring hubby! lol
