Busy, busy, busy!

In case you missed me, yes I’m alive!

Things have been super-duper busy since Halloween!

– Halloween was fun.The kids had a blast!

-My birthday was pretty good. It sucked that Hubby wasn’t here for it, but he did manage to send me flowers all by himself via the internet! That was the first time he’s ever done anything like that!

-My one and only birthday present- a new iPhone 4GS! Woo hoo! I finally got it a couple of days ago, it is awesome!

– I opened a store on etsy.com. I’ve been crafting – A LOT! I’ve sold 2 things so far!

– I’ve been commissioned to make 48 chair covers for my friends christmas party. They are coming along.. I hope to have them mostly done this weekend. I’m also making some sock hobby horses for a birthday party and 150 cake pops for a Quincenara.

– as of Monday (I think) the Teen officially has another half sibling that she’ll never know. I refuse to say “little brother,” it feels wrong to say it like that.

-Hubby is on his way home right now! He should be here until after Thanksgiving! YAY!

See, I’ve been kind of busy! ūüôā I really can’t believe Thanksgiving is only a week away! I better go make my grocery list!

Hope everyone is well out there in cyberspace !


What’s up with me this week…

Happy Wednesday!

It’s been a busy week, and looking to be an even busier weekend!

The most exciting part of the weekend is that my wonderful Hubby who I haven’t seen in a month, IS COMING HOME TOMORROW!!!!!¬† YES!

But its only for 4 days. I’ll take it though.

So, Tomorrow we have a play date at the park.. of course its the one with the water feature.. so that will be interesting to try to leave in the middle of…

Then I am surprising my unsuspecting Teen and taking her to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. She is going to FREAK! She has been dying to see it since we saw the first part back in November.¬† And I keep messing with her about it. Every time she sees a commercial… she reminds me of how excited she is and I remind her that she can only see it if I let her. I’m so mean.¬† But it’s so fun. hahahahaha!¬†

Friday I get¬†to on our Mommy Groups Mommy’s Night Out! No kids, no husbands.. just us girls! I’m¬†very excited to go! After Hubby being gone for a month it is a miracle I havent lost my mind!

Then Saturday hopefully Hubby and I will get to go on a date. My wonderful friend V said she’d watch the kids for me. I’m thinking just hanging at home and making him dinner and just hanging out together without those pesky kids! ūüôā

Sunday will be a family day… and then Hubby is back on a plane for some undetermined amount of time again. Sigh. I know it will all go by far too fast.

In other news-

Yesterday I left the house for the first time with a diaper-free Maniac… and she only peed¬†in the potty! Pretty exciting stuff! I was relieved that she did so well, since we went to a Meet Up at one of the mom’s (who i had only met once) in the Mommy Group’s house. I was so afraid she’d pee on something.¬† I just kept asking her if she had to pee every 5 seconds.¬† Of course this morning there was a pooping on the floor incident while I was in the shower. Three cheers for the Teen who cleaned it up! ūüôā

I am now about 85% certain that the Teen’s mother is pregnant. Her status yesterday was “sorry boo boo¬†there isn’t¬†any more for u n these jeans, lol” I could be totally off base, but to me it reads prego. I still need to be 100% before I break it to the Teen.¬† I do not want her finding out from any one else… well the Baby Mama telling her would be swell.. but we all know that won’t happen. It is coming very close to being a year since she spoke to her.¬†¬†¬†And Crazy Grandma has been trying to call her this week. We’re kind of curious how long she is going to try to call until she gives up. I warned her that the Teen wasnt going to answer the phone. She doesn’t want to talk to her. Which is good… since I realized last night that if they talked, I bet she would spill the Baby Mama Baby beans. And I definitely don’t want THAT to happen.. not from the likes of her.

So that’s what’s up with me this week.

What’s up with you? ūüôā

My Summer Reading List *UPDATE*

I am sure you are just dying to know how I’m doing on my summer reading list challange to myself.

It’s been a month since I posted it. (Read it here)¬†

Here’s My Updated list:

DONE!1. Bossypants- Tina Fey  I actually am about half way through this. It’s pretty funny, I was laughing just reading the back cover!  I love Tina Fey.  I thought it was funny! The stuff about her doing Sarah Palin was  interesting!

¬†DONE! 2. Naptime¬†is the New Happy Hour-¬†¬†Stefanie¬†Wilder-Taylor¬†¬†¬†¬†I started reading this a while ago, then I lost it. After finding that it had fallen behind our bed, I plan on finishing it. It too is pretty funny.¬† It was amusing. I had a hard time finishing. I know its got “happy hour” in the title… but the amount of times she talks about drinking kind of bugged me.¬†

3. Eat, Pray, Love.  A woman at work bought this for me for my birthday like 3 years ago. I started reading it once. I’d really like to read it in its entirety.

 James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. Which is obvious from all of these books that I ordered and havent read.  These next ones are all him:

4. The Postcard Killers

5. Swimsuit

6-8 8th Confession DONE!, 9th Judgement, and 10th Anniversary (I havent gotten 10th anniversary yet since it just came out.. but I really want it!)

9. Worst Case

10. Cross Country

11. I, Alex Cross

12. Relentless- Dean Koontz

13. Your Heart Belongs to Me- Dean Koontz

14. The new Sookie Stackhouse novel . I can’t remember the title. I havent gotten it yet either, but its a must!

15. The other Charlaine Harris book I bought from a different series.. I also can’t remember the title… I have to find it.

16-? Anything else I get around to reading, should I make it this far down the list. I also currently have 4 books I got for free on my Kindle App on my phone, and a couple that the Teen got that I wouldn’t mind reading either.


DONE!17. The Lost Symbol- Dan Brown This should have been on the list to begin with. I really enjoyed it! I spent about 5 hours on Monday finishing it! I couldnt put it down! ūüôā

DONE! 18. A trashy romance novel I downloaded for free on my Kindle App. ūüôā

Oops I forgot to give this a title before I posted it!

Hmmm… it seems that it is already April 19th, and I have only had 3 posts this month. So much for post-a-week!

We’ve had a lot going on… and I have probably started 15 posts and got sidetracked and didn’t¬†finish them. I have a ridiculous number of drafts in my box.

How many is ridiculous you ask?

I just had to go look at the exact number.. And please keep in mind that these are all there since I started my blog back in July….

I have 79 drafts.  See what I mean?  Ridiculous.

Oh well.. maybe I’ll go back and finish some someday.

Anyway-¬† as I was saying, things have been kind of crazy. We went to Vegas two weeks ago, my parents come out last weekend, we went to my brothers on saturday… hubby is actually home this week… I have gone to a few Meet up’s with the meetup.com group I joined.

Things are busy, but have been pretty good. Especially the part about hubby being home this week! ūüėÄ

Aside from a few run ins with my cranky Teen, a couple pretty hideous¬†pooptastrophies..¬† I can’t really complain.

Oh, and after hubby gets paid on friday I think we will FINALLY be almost completely caught up with the bills! (Knock on wood!)


It’s such an¬†amazing relief. Now we can work on¬†making sure¬†this doesn’t happen again. Oh, and saving for my reunion!

So, now I am going to spend the rest of my Tuesday getting some boxes together to list on Thredup.com (in homor of earth week, they will give you $5 for every box you list that’s picked!), catching up on some shows on the DVR and enjoying making my family dinner.

Happy Tuesday! ūüôā
