Meet the Freshbeats!!

Why do childrens programming creators continue to torture us with such HORRIBLE shows?

Meet the Freshbeats.They're horrible,yes I continue to let the kids watch them because it gives me a semblance of a break for a few moments.That and hearing them sing the songs is STINKING cute.

Jiggly legs!!

I helped deliver a baby!!! (kinda)

Last week the family travelled to Cincinnati so I could be there when my brothers first baby was born.I went to the hospital bright and early with the family.We really had a great day.Well,I knew when I got there I would get to be in the room when he was born,but I had no idea that I would get to HELP!!! My brother,it turns out is very squeamish,and he didnt want to be "down there" when the baby was born.I was jokingly telling the ob that I could help him deliver the baby,since I have so much "experience". (lol) Anyway,I got to actually do it! I can honestly say,short of giving birth to my own babies,it was the most incredible experience of my life.

The Doc delivered the babies head and shoulders,and I got to finish (with his help of course) Again,it was amazing.

So far 5 tries and 4 different guys.

Open letter to my Zits.

Dear Zits,

You have been with me since I was about 15.We have had a long,tiresome,and completely parasitic relationship.

Now,I realize everyone needs a home,and I respect that.I gotta tell ya though-youre a CRAPPY roommate and Ive had enough.

Im giving you notice.You have until October 16th to vacate the premises.Let your friends and family who might be visiting soon also know,that they are no longer welcome.

Thanks for reading this.I wanted to have it notorized to make it official,but the kids are napping and Im not waking them up.

Formerly known as your breeding ground,

Support Schmapport I need new bras,one of the downsides of losing weight.So I brought some pretty ones from Victorias Secret.Theyre all pretty and cute and I feel like a million bucks in them until I bend over.WHOOPS! The girls are loose!

Correct me if Im wrong,but for $42 shouldnt they be a little bit more supportive? I mean for $42 I can buy a kid from a third world country to walk around behind me and hold them up.....Ok-maybe not,but you get my point.

Boots n noodles

I really miss blogging. I dont know why I dont do it more often.It is probably because I am crazy busy with the kids.Ellie is like a little blue streak,I can barely keep up with her.Right now she is only in a diaper and a pair of rain boots that are 4 sizes too big.Try taking them off of her and she will hurt me.Its not pretty.She is also carrying around a pack of noodles.As soon as she saw me coming she threw them and sat down and refused to let me take her pic.I fooled her though-even though it is blurry I got it!

Im in a quandry with Jude,he just wont potty train.He does ok with "#1" but "#2" is not happening in the potty,period.Not even once.He turned 4 in June,and I have tried everything short of chaining him to the toilet and nothing works.Makes me wonder how I did when I was little,maybe I should ask my Mom.LOL

Well,the kids I have noticed my attention is elsewhere and theyre starting to break things,so ends this installment.

Am I bad enough....

For Roller Derby?

Im seriously thinking about joining a local Chapter of Memphis Roller Derby.I've been chatting with a member and it sounds like so much FUN and scary at the same time.Im already tickled and giggling about thinking of wearing goggles instead of my glasses when Im playing.ha ha ha....

Im going to try to go watch a practice next week....anyone want to babysit?

Update to come...

Chris I and renewed our wedding vows last night!





It turned out to be a wonderful night! Nearly everyone we invited was able to come.Even my dearest friend from Ky who was my Maid of honor when we got married in 1995.It was so wonderful because my parents almost couldnt make it,and got cheap plane tickets at the last minute. We got the Pastor of our Church,Josh Patrick to perform the ceremony and our Music minister,Michael Cooper to do some guitar and boy it was amazing! The whole thing turned out nearly perfect! I only wish I hadn't burst out in tears and flubbed my vows! LOL

See that ADORABLE little button on the left? The one that says "Never Pay Retail Again" It has the cute little red head on it? If you click on that it will take you to an EXCELLENT money saving website.My friend is a genius! She has been on the radio twice and she is headed for GREAT things!!!

BTW.The redhead.Thats me.LOL


Life is CRAZY!

You never know what kind of cards you're going to be dealt.Right now,to be honest with you,I really cannot complain about my kids are healthy,my husband is WONDERFUL.We are renewing our wedding vows this weekend in front of about 50 of our closest friends.My parents and his parents are comings,as are my original maid of honor and her hubby and daughter,which is SO exciting.We're going to deast on Memphis BBQ and have cake that a dear friend is making.I just couldnt ask for anything more.

Life would be perfect if it wasnt for these darn SEIZURES! LOL


Turns out Ive been having seizures,not sure for how long.When I had my medical testing last week I had six of them during the test.So now I am on medication and I am not allowed to drive for SIX months.Talk about a bummer.Now,I havent been driving alot lately anyway b/c I havent been feeling very good anyway,but knowing Im not ALLOWED to drive,well it just SUCKS. I dont like feeling dependent on others,I dont like asking for help.I dont like being STUCK! I dont like not being able to just grab happy meals for Micah.Frankly,he doesnt like it either.I suppose in the grand scheme of things it is a minor inconvenience and in August (!) the curse shall lift,but that seems like SO far away! So for now I remain stuck and deal with the numb face and hands from the meds and thank the dear lord Jesus for the mercy he HAS shown.

Last week Josh said this verse is his sermon,and it has been with me ever since.(at least I think it was last week-my brain is not functioning well these days-ha ha)

Matthew 6:25-26 - Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

This has been getting me through.
