A Whole Lot Of Random

There are a lot of random thoughts rolling around in this head-o-mine, so I’ll apologize now if this post seems a bit, um, scattered.

Not that today is much different than any other day.

  • Several of you e-mailed to ask about Alex’s bed. It is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in our home. Well, until it comes time to make that bed. It is not an easy task. The desk can be pulled out or pushed in and hidden.

Here is the bed with the desk pushed in.

 

  • After an ENTIRE week, I think (and I’m going out on a limb here) that both of my boys are well. Hallelujah and Praise the Lord! I’ve spent a small fortune in Tylenol and Motrin this week.
  • I did get some time in the SKY this week. One of my favorite things about the SKY is enjoying the sky while driving it.

  • McDaddy has been gone all week. I was so excited when he called today to say he was on his way home ONE DAY EARLY! It’s been a long week and I’m so glad he’s home!
  • I’m watching Big Brother. I’m rooting for J-U-Double D and I hope he’s the last cat standing at the end.
  • Oh Snap! Who’s Line Is It Anyway is back on the air. If you love crazy, you will love that show. McDaddy and I used to watch WLIIA years ago.
  • Using the phrase “years ago” makes me sound really old.
  • And speaking of old, have I mentioned lately that I will be two score this year?
  • I am fighting ants in my kitchen. As it turns out, they were hosting a party in my toaster. Grrrr!!!!
  • I ran into my friend Becky at the Foodland today. It’s a sad shame that we live six minutes apart, and yet, to see her, I have to run into her at the grocery store.
  • Alex had two teeth pulled yesterday. He was A CHAMP!
  • The Reese Klondike is the bomb-diggity.
  • I’m excited for the long weekend. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with my fellas.

Enjoy your weekend, folks!

Sorting Through The Mess

It’s been a long week up in here.

First, I nursed Alex back to health after the throat nastiness attacked him.

Then, after a 12-hour reprieve, I received a call from the Middle School telling me that,

another one bites the dust.

I hate to see my sweet babies hot and sick. But since I’ve been cooped up in the house for days, I thought it might be a good time to take advantage of a bad situation and get down to bid-ness in their bedrooms. For starters, there are about 3,157,261 Legos that needed to be dealt with. Add that to way too many books, plus clothes, clothes, and more clothes, and dang, how did we get all this crap?

After spending two entire evenings working like a dog, I cleaned out their closets, all dresser drawers, dusted, swept, and put the smack-down on the Legos.

Their rooms look so good.

I couldn’t bring myself to take BEFORE pictures, though I totally should have because um, A HOT MESS.

Times two.

And here’s why.

This happens to be a [VERY BAD] picture of the junk I cleaned out of their rooms. It doesn’t appear to be a lot of stuff, but alas, there is way more junk there than what you can see.

I feel better after sorting through that mess.

Now, if only I could make my babies feel better…..

When All Else Fails, Drink More Water

So.

Yesterday, I mentioned that Alex was just coming off of some sort of viral nastiness in his throat.

Alex returned to school today, and I was hoping we had seen the last of the fever.

But alas, today at 11:56 AM EST, I received a call from the Middle School Health Nurse (my second call in two weeks, mind you!) informing me that Stevie was in the clinic with a headache, and yup, you guessed it, a fever.

In the amount of 101.

I rushed to the school to find my sweet boy looking pitiful. He immediately hugged me and I have never been so happy to be a stay-at-home-momma in my life. He was holding back tears and he whispered, “Mom, I’m freezing.”

Y’all.

Did I mention I hate having a sick kiddo?

It is my least favorite thing in the whole wide world.

So, my sweet, pitiful baby boy and I made the minute-drive home and I loaded him up on Motrin and Tylenol. Oh, and water, too, because if I learned anything from my stent /  bladder / UTI / kidney-stone drama over the past few months, it’s to DRINK SOME MORE WATER. So, all day long I was like, “Here, getcha’ another sip so you don’t dehydrate.”

It’s all I know to do.

Within an hour, his fever hit 104.1.

I went nine kinds of crazy. I quickly ran some cool bath water, and thankfully, after a few minutes in the bath water, his temperature was back down to 101. And so most of the day has been spent keeping track of the Motrin, and the Tylenol, the thermometer, AND THE WATER, don’t forget the water. And I’ll be so happy when this nonsense moves on to the next unsuspecting joker, because momma needs a break.

Or a medical degree.

Either way, I’m about to lose what little bit of sanity I have left. We have been back to school for thirteen days, and this fever crap is straight-up crazy.

And that’s about all I have to say about that.

Night folks.

What I Learned This Week [According to Alex]

I spent the day hanging out with my boy on the couch.

As it turns out, he has some sort of viral infection that causes white blisters on the throat. Thankfully, the fever seems to be gone. Although I hate him missing school, I did enjoy our time together. He kept me laughing all day long and I just kept thinking to myself what an awesome kid he is. (All mommas think that, right?)

He is chock full of information, and he says, “Mom, did you know [insert random information here]” about 241 times per day. After the fourth or fifth random fact I heard today, I decided I’d share the facts here with you. So here’s what I learned this week, from Alex.

1. The rings of Jupiter are really thin.

2. It takes 48 seconds to put on and tie both of his shoes.

3. Scarlett is made by mixing red, orange, and some pink.

4. Jeff Gordon drives the Pepsi Max car, plus he gets into a lot of fights. I don’t know why. I guess cause he gets mad easily.

5. VY Canis majoris is the biggest star in the universe, and it is brighter than the sun.

6. Obsidian in the best substance in Minecraft.

7. A Mitsubishi Lancer looks a lot better with a spoiler than without one.

8. Your stomach is always moving.

9. Pluto is no longer a planet, it is now a moon.

10. The Audi R8V10 is a 10-cylinder car. The Sky is a 4-cylinder with a turbo engine.

11. When food gets to the large intestines, that’s when you have to use the bathroom.

That’s what I learned this week.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

My fellas and I spent the weekend camping with McDaddy’s sister, her four kids, and another family from our church.

When I picked up Alex from school on Friday, I could tell he wasn’t feeling well. He told me he was just sad because his class didn’t get to go out for recess, but I could tell he wasn’t his normal, smiling self. We had an hour at home before it was time to pick Stevie up from school. My heart sank when he said, “Mom, I’m freezing.” I got out the thermometer and my suspicions were confirmed.

101.7

Just great.

We were literally walking out the door to pick up Stevie and hit the road, and now we had to make a split-second decision about whether Alex and I would go or stay.

McDaddy and I decided that Alex and I would drive a separate car. That way, if his fever didn’t go away or he started feeling worse, he and I would make the hour drive back home. He slept the entire way to the campground, and by the time we arrived, his temperature was 102. I put him in a cool bath, and within minutes of the bath and the Tylenol kicking in, he was wound-up like an eight-day clock.

The fun was short-lived because by bedtime, he was hot again.

If you know me in real life, you know that I am a straight-up crazy person when it comes to the medical issues. Especially, medical issues involving my kids. I realize that a fever is not uncommon in young children. I also realize that I am very fortunate to have healthy kids. Still, I can barely stand the thought of my boys feeling bad. I wish I could just wave a magic wand and make them all better. It is, in my opinion, the worst part of motherhood.

By Saturday evening, he told me that his throat hurt when he swallowed. His fever had been up and down all day, and it seemed to be hanging steady at 101. I made a trip to the Google to find the nearest Med-Express and away we went. I was pretty sure he had strep because his throat was red and raw, and strep is “going around” at his school.

We made our way to the clinic, and I was relieved that there were only three others in the waiting room. We were seen rather quickly, and much to my surprise, he tested negative for strep. The Doc – citing his raspy cough and raw throat – handed us a prescription for an antibiotic, and we were in and out in about an hour.

We are now 56 hours into the fever, and 24 hours into the antibiotic. I am hoping we’re on the downhill side of this thing. I don’t like it when my babies are sick.

And speaking of babies, look what I found in my picture files.

I love this sweet child so much!

I hoping he feels better tomorrow.

And pleading with time to slow down.

Did You Find The Snake?

I know there are at least two of you out there wondering if the snake is still in our garage.

Y’all.

I’m sorry to say I don’t have an answer to that question.

There is only one exterminating company in the area that deals in snakes. For $150. they will send a shady sucker over to your house and look for the snake. If the sucker finds and kills the snake, the cost goes up to $300. When I asked what method he would use to find the snake, he said, “Oh, we just look with our eyes.”

So, guess what?

We might still have a snake in our garage.

I don’t even know how I’m still living here.

But, since I didn’t come here to discuss the snake that may or MAY NOT be living in my garage, how ’bout let’s just move right along.

Here are some random thoughts rolling around in my brain tonight.

1. I miss the boys being in the same school. SO MUCH.

2. Only not completely because I do get to drive the SKY more frequently.

2. I hate getting those “Mom, can you come to the school?” calls. Especially when there is blood involved.

3. We are going camping this weekend. McDaddy confirmed today that there  is cell service there!

4. I am pleased to report that I went to Chilis today and didn’t get a honey-mustard bath.

5. What is Tumblr anyway?

6. Ben Affleck? Batman? Blah, blah, blah.

7. I think the Bluetooth is d-r-a-i-n-i-n-g my iPhone battery.

8. I just can’t allow myself to end a list on an odd number.

Any random thoughts rolling around in your brain today?

What I Learned This Week

I’ve been busier than a raccoon in a trash-pile today.

It’s consignment sale week and I’ve been busy trying to get all of the items typed into the computer so that I could print the tags. I have piles of clothing and stacks of shoes all over my living room, and that drives me nine kinds of crazy!

I might have been able to get it all done, but I had to stop several times, once to take Stevie to the Orthodontist and then again when McDaddy and I had attended a Middle School meeting and a parent planning meeting at Scouts.

Plus, I actually cooked today, so GO ME!

Here’s what I learned this week.

1. The new talking EpiPen (Auvi-Q) is a great invention. The School nurse asked to borrow my trainer so that she could train the staff to use it.

2. Before buying a greeting card you should look at the price. I was shocked when I looked at my Wal-Mart receipt recently and discovered I had paid $6.47 for a greeting card. (Really, Hallmark?)

3. When your seven year-old tells you that he saw a snake in the garage, you should not automatically assume that he saw a lizard.

4. Only one exterminating company in our area treats for snakes.

5. Once it is confirmed that there is indeed a snake in your garage, you will be a nervous crazy person each and every time you have to go back out there.

6. I should have purchased a whitehead/blackhead remover tool years ago.

7. I should have stopped purchasing Little Debbie’s years ago.

8. Silas Merritt Robertson might be one of the funniest individuals on the planet.

9. Breathe-Right nasal strips are a waste of money.

10. Corn on the cob should not be boiled more than eight minutes.

That’s what I learned this week.

Now, what did YOU learn?

That Slithery Sucker

We had an eventful weekend.

We attended a surprise 50th birthday party for our friend Cindy on Friday, and while we arrived before the time stated on the invitation, we arrived too late to do the whole “SURPRISE” thing, because the birthday girl came home from work early. I made this cute little bouquet for the birthday girl and I think it is so cute!

Except I’m pretty sure fifty doesn’t suck because now that I’m almost forty, fifty seems WAY young.

It’s funny how that happens.

And while I’m at it, let’s take this opportunity to talk about surprise parties. One of my biggest disappointments about McDaddy being deployed this go-round was that he would miss both of our fortieth birthdays. I just couldn’t figure out how he was going to throw me a surprise party if he was 7,500 miles away (give or take some miles depending on where you start from.) But now that he’s not being deployed, well, let’s just say he has plenty of time to work out all the details.

Our Saturday was jam-packed. Stevie had Fall Ball practice at 10:00 AM – which in my opinion should be illegal a mere six days after school begins – and then we ran home and got changed for more birthday cake another birthday party.

We arrived back home to see this sitting in the driveway.

Normally, anytime McDaddy has the SKY out of the garage, he’s either working on the JEEP or washing vehicles.

Y’all.

I wish that had been the case on Saturday.

As it turns out, McDaddy saw a snake in the garage. He moved the SKY out hoping to capture and kill the sucker before he could slither away and hide out in our garage walls.

This whole snake spotting thing might not be so bad had it not been for the fact that Alex reported seeing a snake in the garage on Tuesday. And if McDaddy had not ran over a snake in the backyard with the lawnmower on Friday.

And for those of you keeping score, that means there were at least two snakes on our property.

I had assumed that the “snake” Alex saw was probably just a lizard. He couldn’t tell me how long the “snake” was because all he saw was the tail before it scurried between a door and the frame. It was just easier to assume that Alex saw a lizard. And it was also easier to just believe the “yard snake” was in the wrong right place at the wrong right time.

If I spend too much time thinking about the fact that there is a snake in our garage (or Lord forbid a whole friggin’ den of snakes because Google says there could be between 5-35 eggs!) I have to fight the urge to burn this place down. I think I’d be better off thinking about these suckers,

which are like Heaven in a little paper cupcake wrapper.

They are absolutely divine and every bit as good as they look. I picked them up on Friday and had to fight the urge to not eat every. single. one. of them.

I plan to call an exterminator today. Wish me luck in finding someone who can come in and capture this sucker and any family members who might be staying rent-free in our garage.

And in the meantime, I’ll be keeping the top up on my beloved Saturn Sky, because if I were a snake, you can bet the farm I’d want to hang out in a sexy red sports car.

And if I take the SKY out this week, you better bet I’ll be looking for that slithery sucker, first.

Have a great week, y’all.

Forty Things Before I Turn Forty

Back in 2010, I wrote a post called 40 Things Before 40 where I outlined 40 things I’d like to do before I turn the birthday that starts with FOUR and ends with TEE.

It hurts to even type the word.

Here it is, three years later, and I thought it might be a good time to revisit these 40 things mostly because, well, I can’t really come up with anything else to write about unless you count the incident that happened earlier today when I answered a call from CARD SERVICES and stayed on the line long enough to “press one for an actual living, breathing, human being to come on the line and offer to lower the interest on my credit cards” for the 517th time even though I don’t have a balance on any credit cards, and even though I’ve reported them to the Attorney General’s office for harassment.

Y’all.

I lost my ever-lovin-mind. While waiting to be transferred to one of the interest-reducing jokers, I grabbed a pot from the cabinet and a wooden spoon out of the utensil drawer. When the actual living, breathing, human being (Lord, forgive me!) came on the line, I banged on that metal pot with a wooden spoon like a straight-up crazy person until I heard the phone go dead. It wasn’t my finest moment, but I must admit, for some crazy reason I felt wonderful afterwards.

But surely none of you want to hear about that.

So, here’s my list, along with the progress I’ve made toward it.

1. Give up my love of lists

Nope. Still love ’em.

2. Lose a lot! of weight.

Not a lot, but I did lose about 25 pounds.

3. Learn HTML code.

I’ve learned enough to scoot text away from pictures that I post here on the blog. Oh, and also how to center using HTML.

4. Go to Australia with McDaddy

Haven’t done this yet, but we’ve still got four months. McDaddy, you DO still owe me an anniversary trip. Australia, perhaps? 

5. Get ten hours each night of uninterrupted sleep (without waking to pee!)

NOPE. As you age, so does your bladder. FAIL.

6. See a Broadway Show

NOPE. Still haven’t done this. McDaddy, how’s New York sound for an anniversary trip?

7. Share McDaddy’s love of off-roading without irrational fear of panic attack.

FAIL. AGAIN. (Sorry, McDaddy!)

8. Own a Saturn Sky even if only for a short time.

Y’ALL.

After five years I finally have my very own 2007 Chili Pepper Red Saturn Sky Redline.

If all 39 other items on this list went unchecked, I’d have absolutely nothing to complain about. It took me five years to persuade McDaddy, but I finally broke him down.

9. Purchase the empty lot beside of our house so that McDaddy can build the garage of his dreams.

Still not for sale, but still would love to have that lot.

10. Finish the basement. I mean completely finished and mess cleaned up!

Ok, so it’s not completely finished, but we are so much closer. Finished the rec-room (pictured below) and toy-room (except for the trim), and now we are working on a fabulous new mudroom.

11. Build a new deck (We need one sooner rather than later or else we’ll have our very own drop zone!)

Haven’t completed this, but we are making serious plans to start on it in the next few months. I want composite, McDaddy wants cheaper.

12. Worry less.

I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY feel like I am much better at worrying less.

13. Get a full night of uninterrupted sleep.

YES! I get a full night of uninterrupted sleep often! Except when my bladder shows it age!

14. Go to the dentist and get a good report without getting the dreaded floss lesson. (Which means I should actually floss each. and. every. single. day. Thankyouverymuch!)

THIS WOULD BE A BIG, FAT, FAIL. In fact, I have a place of honor on the Need To Floss Wall Of Shame.

15. Visit Alaska

Haven’t made it to Alaska, but we still have four months. McDaddy, how does Alaska sound for an anniversary trip?

16. Worry Less

Did I mean to list worry less twice? Lord knows I worried enough back then to give it two positions.

17. Get off blood pressure medicine. This could probably happen by achieving at least seven of the items on this list.

After a bout with a Merena IUD that wreaked havoc on my blood pressure, I am now on TWO blood pressure meds. Thanks for nothing, Merena. =(

18. Declutterize our house completely!

I’m not sure I’d ever be able to declutterize our house completely, but I declutter areas often, so that counts for something, right?

19. Learn how to start the lawn-mower. Not because I really want to mow, but, because it’s the responsible thing to do.

Guess what?

You guessed it.

FAIL!

20. Find the perfect bra. Why is that we can put a man on the moon, but we can’t make a bra for every woman’s size and body shape that is comfortable?

ANOTHER FAIL. Sheesh, I hate bras!

21. Actually pay attention every. time. someone. speaks. to. me.  {Can you repeat that?}

Sadly, the words every and time makes this one really tough, but I do feel like I try my best.

22. Learn how to make a perfect batch of no-bake cookies just like my daddy!

Haven’t done this one, but mainly because I haven’t tried. Why would I chance ruining a batch when I can just let daddy do it and have perfect cookies every. single. time?

23. Read the Bible all the way through.

Geez, another FAIL.

24. Have a really easy, great haircut that is easy to style.

GUESS WHAT FOLKS? I have a short cut and have finally weaned myself away from a curling iron. So this one right here? TOTALLY A WIN!

25. Be free of my addiction of caffeinated Beverages {Could someone warn the folks at Dr. Pepper that in four short years there could be a slight decline in monthly sales}.

Holy Hallelujah, I had no business even putting this one on the list. FAIL.

26. Get rid of everything in our house that has not been touched for a year.

Haven’t gotten rid of everything we haven’t touched in a year, but I have taken countless loads of nonsense to the Goodwill, so I’m gonna make a mark in the PASS column for this one!

27. Let my boys be – BOYS. Without fear of injury or something worse

I must have been under the influence of something when I placed #27 on the list. I worry way too much (even now that I worry less) to let this happen. And anyway, this picture is the perfect reason why I would like to lock both of them up in a rubber room.

28. Learn more about stuff I know nothing about. Knowledge regarding things like stocks and HTML Code could be very helpful to me some day!

Not much to say about this, except FAIL!

29. Cook more.

I do, thankyouverymuch! But the fact remains,

30. Buy flowers for spring and keep them alive all summer by watering them instead of depending on prayer and God to bring them back to life.

I am so horrible at keeping flowers alive, I purchased silk Hydrangeas at the Dollar General for my porch pots. Great thing is they still looked beautiful after our month-long summer tour! So, another WIN for me.  =)

31. Find the perfect purse. I have purchased at least twenty perfect purses, yet, they find their way to the bottom of the purse pile when the next perfect one hops off the rack and onto my arm.

I am currently carrying “THE PERFECT PURSE.” Just ask McDaddy!

32. Get rid of stuff in the loft that we have not touched since we moved here seven years ago. {Anybody out there have a need for old diaries or one or two or twenty backpacks?}

I just told the boys last week that I would be cleaning out the loft very soon. I’m just waiting on the urge!

33. Do every. single. thing. on my long-term To-Do List. Or just shred the list.

Sorry to say this, but I have determined that as I cross one thing off of my long-term To-Do List, I write another thing on the list. It never, ever ends!

34. Be caught up on scrapbooks with NO pictures in the pending basket. After all, someday these boys will be grown and may actually want to take them when they leave.

I haven’t scrapbooked for quite some time. I think I last worked on pictures from 2008. It drives me crazy every time I think about it, because I hate knowing I didn’t keep up with it. I have thought several times about completing digital scrapbooks for 2008 – present. The more I think about it, the more I think it’s a great idea!

35. Think. Before. I. Speak. {Sweet Hallelujah, is it possible?}

FAIL. But honestly, I do try! With age, comes wisdom. Maybe forty is the age I’ve been waiting for.

36. Take the boys to Lake Powell to spend a week on a houseboat. We’ve made this trip twice (before kids, mind you) and it is the most relaxing vacation in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.

I was so excited to see a Lake Powell vacation in the Showcase Showdown on The Price Is Right just today. I was reminded that I would love to make this trip with our boys, especially now that they can swim. McDaddy, how about a trip to Lake Powell for a belated anniversary family getaway?

37. Have patience.

Nope. Another FAIL.

38. Successfully back the van into the garage on the first try. It’s been seven years and every single time I back in crooked I think about the fact that the guy who built it, (ahem! Glen) designed it just off-center. I’m sure his botched calculations are the root of the problem.

Not sure I was ever able to do this before we got rid of the van last year. It is even tougher getting the SKY backed in on the first try because HELLO! MUST BE CAREFUL WITH BEAUTIFUL RED CAR!!!!

39. Loose FIVE! sizes. And never find them again as long as I shall live!

Lost three, then found one. Sheesh. Another FAIL.

40. Change my freakin’ attitude about things I have no control over.

I really feel like I’m much better at this. I’m gonna consider this one a PASS.

So, there’s the list, and the progress.

And a big, freakin’ reminder that not much has changed in four years.

Well, except for this,

Oh, and McDaddy, if you’re reading this, you have four months to get us to Australia, Alaska, New York and the Arizona/Utah border, so get busy, would ya?

Look out FORTY, here I come I’ll be there in 117 days.

Not that I’m counting.

A Little Shady

If you know me in real life, you know that I am a straight-up crazy person, with a boat-load of quirks.

This picture will prove it.

Folks, what you see in the little cubby hole in the SKY is four pairs of sunglasses.

Keep in mind there are only two seats in the SKY.

That black pair on the right belongs to McDaddy.

Those other three?

MINE.

I am a crazy person when it comes to sunglasses. Before I had Lasek surgery, I never bought sunglasses because I had to wear eyeglasses. Since having Lasek surgery in 2006, sunlight really bothers me. Sunglasses are a necessity. In the past seven years, I have probably bought twelve pairs of sunglasses. The only problem is, I never have a pair when I need them.

Or, maybe I should say, I never have a pair that I like. I have purchased sunglasses that I now hate. Either they are too dark, or not dark enough. Too tight on my head, or so loose I can’t keep them in place. If I find a pair that I really like, I buy more than one pair. In fact, when I found the last pair of sunglasses that I really liked (the second pair from the left in the picture) at Dollar General, I bought two pair. Then, I went back a week later and bought a third pair because somehow one of the arms got bent and they no longer fit my fat head.

Then, last year I was in Dress Barn and found a pair similar to those pictured above, except they had rhinestones on them. And I am a firm believer that anything good can be great if you add some bling to it. (On the far left in the first picture).

I will never EVER so long as I shall live purchase a pair of those crazy oversized sunglasses that the celebrities wear. Nor will I purchase the aviator style sunglasses. While in Jacksonville recently, I purchased two more pair of the blinged-out sunglasses at the Dress Barn outlet. Less than an hour later, I walked into a Fossil outlet and purchased two more pairs of blinged-out glasses that I liked even better than the Dress Barn sunglasses.

That’s four pairs of sunglasses in less than an hour.

When McDaddy drew his eyebrows down after finding out about the second two pairs, I quickly offered to return the first two pairs. And that’s what I did.

My goal was to have a pair of glasses in each vehicle.

And if you know us personally, you know that is not a small task, because though McDaddy is not a hunter, a fisher, a drinker, or a smoker, he is a car FREAK. We have a total of five vehicles. But we are rarely ever in his 1981 Vintage Buick so that means I would need four pairs of sunglasses.

Which I do have.

The only problem is they often (by some strange twist of fate) end up in the same vehicle and I’m left standing around telling McDaddy I have no idea what happens to all of my sunglasses.

But now I know.

Seems shady to me that four pairs of glasses could all end up in the same car.

At least now I know where to look when I need a pair.
