Let's Review

Is this week FINALLY over?! Oh thank goodness! Now please, somebody promise me next week will be better. Go ahead, lie to me if you have to, it will still make me feel better. But make sure to leave your name and address so that if it turns out horrible too I can hunt you down like a dog thank you properly!

So here's what the longest week in the history of the world is like. 

Monday: Hunter, who if you're new here, is my 3 1/2 year old son, acted like a mini asshole all day! Yes, I just called my son an asshole. Hey if the shoe fits! This made him mean and hateful not just to me but to his 19 month old sister too. And let me tell you, Miss Holly has no problem being mean right back to him! She holds her own and then some! Spent the day stressing over finding somewhere to move to and trying to pack while both little meanie children unpacked everything I put into boxes, yelled at and beat each other up, and just essentially drove me absolutely batty!

Tuesday: Repeat of Monday x 2

Wednesday: Repeat of Tuesday x 3 (here's some proof) plus went to look at a 3 bedroom house that would have worked out great if it wasn't completely nasty and the landlord wasn't a major slum lord.

Thursday: Repeat of Wednesday x 4 minus the slum lord but add in tears of frustration from me and the fact that in this small ass hick town, Trick-or-Treating was that night. Refer to this post to hear about Hunter's little cry baby butt during this supposedly fun event and to see some cute pics. 

Friday: Repeat of Thursday x 5 minus the Trick-or-Treating. Add in that we still can't find a decent place to move to and our time is QUICKLY running out. We ended up renting a one bedroom apartment at a pay by the week place until we can find something better.

Saturday: Kids were slightly better behaved then the days before, but add in some arguing with Hubby. He says I don't do anything during the day. So since Jordyn was gone at a bday party, I took my mp3 player and went in her room to pack stuff, while completely ignoring Hunter and Holly leaving him no choice but to look after them. I only put one ear bud in so that I could still hear what was going on. Even though he denied it later, it didn't take long for them to drive him crazy too! I don't care if he won't admit it, I heard it with my own ears. He just got a small taste of what I go through all day. I did manage to get a decent amount of packing done during this though!

Then after the kids went to bed we found this adorable cat outside. You could tell he was super friendly and very hungry. In a moment that reminds me why I fell for this guy in the first place, he lets the cat in, even though he has asthma and we aren't supposed to have pets here. I found some ham in the fridge to feed the poor kitty and he spent part of the night sleeping with me and the other part on Holly's little Backyardigans couch next to our bed. He is so super sweet and adorable! The cat I mean! lol. The bad part is that we won't be able to keep him. There is a $200 deposit at the place we're going to be staying at to have a pet! Outrageous right?!
So now we're up to Sunday. All three kids have been driving me batty and Hubby stayed up till like 3am so he's still asleep now at noon. Must be nice right? I know. Holly just went down for a nap and Jordyn and Hunter are playing the DSI together. For the moment I have a little bit of peace. Ahhh...

happy Halloween

Last night was Trick-or-Treat night in our town. It still seems strange to me that this doesn't actually happen on Halloween. It's not just me either, my friends in Arizona also find this very strange. Anyways, on with my point. My babies were so adorable last night! Again, it's not just me, others whole heartily agree! The Trick-or-Treating itself kind of sucked though. It seemed like hardly anybody was handing out candy this year! I know they don't need much sweets, I don't let them eat very much junk anyways, but I still feel like they got jipted on the experience. Then it didn't help that Hunter cried and refused to get out of the stroller almost the whole time! Luckily, Jordyn is an awesome big sister cause she made sure to always bring candy back to him too. And Holly had a blast. By the second house she had the hang of it and would hold her little pumpkin basket out for her treats!

We kind of threw Jordyn's costume together. I don't know what she was but she said she was a Cheetah Girl. And I got a good glimpse into her teenage years when I was doing her makeup. She's going to be gorgeous! Hunter had 2 layers of clothes on under his Spiderman costume and still insisted he was cold, and Holly was just as content as she could be as long as I didn't make her wear the hat to her witch costume and she had a sucker in her hand!

It was NOT easy to get this picture! Don't mind the mess in the background, we're getting ready to move!


My gorgeous little Cheetah Girl!




Mommy and my beautiful first born!

Happy Halloween

Can we just be done with this week?!

Monday I thought the day needed to start over. Tuesday I thought the week needed a do over. Today I think the whole week needs to hurry the hell up and just be done because I'm so f*%#ing over it!!!!!! Oh, that felt sooo good to type! All week Hunter and Holly have been driving me absolutely nuts! Hunter, who if you're new here or just don't remember, is 3 1/2 and Holly is almost 20 months. I swear I think they're tag teaming me or something. I know they sit in their room at night plotting new ways to drive me crazy! Hunter's favorite phrases this week are "My Mama's mean!" "I don't like you!" and "I'm closing my door!" My answer to the first two? Too bad! You're mean too! And maybe I don't like you either! And as far as his door. I'll gladly close it for him and maybe board it up from the outside! Too much? Come spend the rest of the week with him, you'll be handing me the hammer and nails! And as for Miss Holly, yesterday while I'm on the phone talking to a guy about renting a house for him, what d I turn around to see? Holly at the fridge with busted eggs all over my floor. The worst part? That's not the first time this week she's done this! I've also cleaned up no less than three spills of milk or juice from the table and floor where she's grabbed Hunter or Jordyn's cup plus a full glass of Hubby's tea in the living room cause she likes to grab his cup too. And I don't know how many times I've said the words...

"Stop getting things out of the trash! That's yucky!"
"Stop hitting your sister!"
"Don't bite your brother!"
"Stop jumping over your sister before you fall on her!"
"Do not pull poop out of your butt with your hands!"
Please, Please, for the sake of my sanity, somebody fast forward this awful damn week!!!!!

Book Review

OK, it's time for another review of an awesome book! Do you all remember the last one I did for In the Belly of Jonah?  No? Well then go check it out. I'll wait. See, now you want to read it don't you?! You should, it was a good book. But you know what, this one is even better. Lot's Return to Sodom is the second book in the Liv Bergen series. This time Sandra Brannan introduces us to the terrifying world of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and one of the most feared biker gangs, Lucifer's Lot. Once again, Liv is thrown into the middle of not one, not two, but THREE murder investigations! Possibly four even! The last one being her own if she doesn't hurry to solve these heinous crimes. But the reader isn't the only one who will be kept on their toes. Our favorite FBI agent Streeter Pierce is back. Or as Liv thinks of him Agent Adonis. This happy reader thinks there is definitely some romance in the future for these two! If you're in the mood for a fast paced, can't wait to see what happens next, book to read then this book is for you! I can't wait to see what's in store next for Liv.

Repost- My BFF stabbed my hubby!

***disclaimer, no husbands were actually hurt in this!***

OMG my BFF told me the funniest thing this morning! Now keep an open mind here, ok. If you knew both my BF and my hubby, then you would totally understand this. They have such a love/hate relationship. Half the time they can't stand each other and may be telling each other off, and the other half of the time they love each other. But no matter what they do or feel for one another, let somebody else mess with one of them, and it's on! They are so funny sometimes!

Well, while talking to my BFF on the phone this morning, she tells me about this dream she had last night. Ok, are you ready for this?

She dreamed that she...

Stabbed my hubby! Now not enough to kill him, just hurt him a bit!

In the dream he was like "OW, WTF! Why'd you stab me?!" And she's yelling and calling him everything but a white boy!

Me? I guess I was just like "See, I told you to stop pissing her off! Now you see what happens!" I wasn't even worried that he was bleeding. Besides it was just a flesh wound!

Now, you're going to think I'm seriously disturbed because while she's telling me about this dream, I'm laughing my ass off! I think my first coherent words were "Omg, I have to blog about this!"

Hell, maybe I am wrong in the head because this is still funny! (giggle)

Anybody else want to share any strange or funny dreams they've had recently?

Easy fruit salad

My neighbor brought me this recipe earlier and I decided to try it out for desert tonight. It may not look too pretty in this pic, but the kiddos sure LOVED it! And it's super easy to make. And you know what else? It's healthy! Shh don't tell them. They were as excited as if I had given them hot fudge sundaes!

You will need:
  • 1 can (16 ounce) drained fruit cocktail
  • 2 sliced bananas
  • 2 oranges cut into bite sized pieces or 1 large can of drained mandarin oranges
  • 2 apples cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 ounces of yogurt, any flavor

Super easy instructions:
  1. Mix fruit together in a large bowl
  2. Add yogurt and mix well
  3. Chill in refrigerator before serving
That's it. Can't get any easier than that! My 8 year old, Jordyn even helped me make it so they got a healthy, sweet desert, and we had a little Mommy-Daughter time. Not easy with two younger siblings demanding my attention. 

I was told that I was the Best Mommy Ever for serving up this tasty treat!
