All About Mommy

So I saw this cute little survey on a few different websites, and I got to thinking, I would like to journal my boys answers to have when the are grown and I’m old and lonely.  A little piece of their young thoughts. I just asked the question and typed exactly what they said.  I was quite surprised to see that some were  answered right away and others they had to think over. Very interesting to see myself through my boys’ eyes.   Also because they are boys, they had to answer with the shortest answer possible. Neither one put any explanation to any answer. They gave the answer and moved on.  Boys!  I also noticed that Bam answered as if we were talking about someone else. He always said ‘she’ and ‘her, whereas Fred answered directly to me with ‘you’ or ‘your’. I don’t know what that means.  Anyways……

What have I done???

Why oh why have I given up pop? It was a foolish choice. I need it so bad. Ughhhhh!! I don’t know if I am strong enough. Can you hear my tears?? I want a pepsi soooooo bad!!!

But I will not give in. It’s only day 2 for crying out loud. Only 38 to go. I am strong enough. I’m tough. Also I still have coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

And I went shopping today. that always makes me feel better. Pictures to come later.

Lent–2009

Last year I posted about lent.  To sum it up quickly, I did terribly. I think the reason I did do so poorly was because I did to much. So this year I’m going to try again, but with a different mind set. Not how much can I sacrifice to ready my heart for Easter, but how can I truly sacrifice?   As I was deliberating this decision I got to thinking about  my New Years goals.  Those goals I set for myself are hard for me. Really hard.  So, I know that if I were to focus for a forty-day long time period on ONE thing, that would be a serious sacrifice for me.  SOOOOOO I have decided that I will give up all pop for 40 days.  FORTY DAYS!!!!   OH MY GOSH.  This is going to be hard.

pepsi1

I love the contents of this little can so much. Better yet I LOVE it when it comes from the fountain at a gas station.

Dear Pepsi, I will miss you,but you need to go away for 40 days, and then after that you only need to visit every so often.  But always remember that I love you.

PS: Your so much better than Coke. Period. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Second Born

Second Born

Since I’m all about equal opportunity, I thought I’d do this little meme for Bam too.  I’m sure it might have a little something to do with being a second born myself, and not liking to be left out.

I took it to my friends house while Jason was at work and we sat and stared at it all afternoon while talking about baby names, eve thought we already had 2 picked out.  I bought a second test, an early response type,  on the way home… with a bottle of pepsi and a few other things to make it not look so wierd. The cashier told me good luck after I was done paying!  I came home and Jason was already home. I could not wait until morning, so I went quietly into the bathroom and tested, and when I took the very postive test to Jason, he just shrugged and said he already knew. To this day I don’t know why I spent so much money on all those tests when Jason is a walking pregancy test.
7. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX? No way, but Jason did, and since I got my way the first time we found out. We told NO one, but I guess we slipped a few times. My awesome friends were wonderful not to laugh at me until after he was born. Thanks!

First Born

After some self-inflicted peer pressure I will do this Meme about my First Born.

5. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT? After trying for almost 1 and half years, Jason and I went grocery shopping one September evening. While on the lady item isle Jason grabbed a pregnancy test and tossed it in the cart.  I almost started crying and put it back on the shelf. I told him I couldn’t possibly see another negative, and I was done taking tests. He put it back in the cart and said he had a feeling. So when we got home I went and took the test and then started putting groceries away (after I washed my hands, don’t worry).  I was sitting on the couch watching tv when Jason asked me what it said. I had forgotten all about it! I went into the bathroom, looked and almost passed out!  It was positive. I was sure I had done something wrong.  Jason said he already knew after I showed him.
6. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST? Jason of course, even though the neighbor might have heard my shrieking.

Books!!!

I love to read. I tend to get a little wrapped up in most books. My kids don’t get to eat real meals until the last page of the book has been read. Serious neglect happens when I have my nose in a book. Since going back to work my reading time has dramaticly been scaled back. This saddens me greatly, but I really like to sleep, and I have to choose one or another. I have noticed lately that I’m really not finding anything that sparks my interest. I might be willing to go out on a limb and read something not in my ‘normal’ genres. So my question to you blog readers, what books should I check out. I’m open to your suggestions.
