New Years Eve


Our plans will consist of taking care of sick kiddos and hopefully a few card games.
The last year we went out was when G was a baby,hes almost 6 now. We must be old.
We had to walk home that night. I remember the cold on my cheeks and the warmth of Mr. Funs arm around my shoulder. The streets were quiet and our laughter loud.

I refuse to make any resolutions because I won't keep them. However,there are a few things that I would like see happen.
1~lose about 5-10 lbs
2~organize this whole house
3~get another tattoo
now if they happen they happen. If they don't theres always the next year.


Wishing you peace in the New Year

Thirteen Things about Mrs.Fun

1~I really need a night out
2~I'm afraid that night out wouldn't do me much good
3~See I would be too worried about Mr. Boob man.
4~I would make it just fine for a couple hours but then I would want to come home.
5~And just how do you wean a child that won't eat solid food or drink from anything other than the breast? HOW HOW HOW????? I don't know where to begin.
6~I loaded the kids as is up in the truck and went through the drive thru of KFC just for a large diet pepsi(no ice) yesterday.
7~I should be sleeping,given I was up all night with a feverish baby.
8~eight eight eight i forget what eight is for.....
9~I am going to get serious about fitness once T aka Mr. Boob man is feeling better.
10~I keep thinking its Saturday or Sunday because the kids don't have school.
11~I am loving not having to get ready or having anywhere to go.
12~I finally found a country station on XM that rocks. They play lots of Gary. its called Highway 16.
13~We have tickets to the hockey game tonight and I may have to stay home because T is sick. We were going to take him but we can't do that if hes sick and if you read #2 and #3 then you know leaving him for that long is not an option. Unless of course you,yes you, has the magic answer for me. And none of that "he'll eat if he gets hungry enough" crap. I'm not into starving my child while a sitter listens to him scream.

One down three to go


Teething is such a bitch. It really is. And to top it off hes congested and is running a low grade fever of 100.9. Hes cranky,hes miserable,hes tired,he wants to nurse all day and night. This leaves very little time for anything else. Including sleep,for me anyways.
Yesterday I noticed one more tooth had broke through and three others trying to break through. Its going to be a long haul so buck up mom. Pour another cup,get comfy and realize you can brush your teeth(along with many other things we won't metion) while holding a fussy baby.

There you have it!! Seven bottles of floor cleaner. I was so excited!! Mr. Fun knew I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this gift. It is very close to being my favorite. I ran out of this about a month ago. I have searched high and low for it. Mr. Fun found some and decided to buy all they had. I love him!!!! Some might find this gift thoughtless or too practical. BUT not me. Oh its so thoughtful and romantic. It says.....I listen

DO NOT LET CHILDREN READ!!!!!!

CRAP CRAP CRAP!!!


so today was PJ day. Last night JJ asked if she could wear my slippers. I said yes not thinking she would run in my closet and get them.
So today she asked "did you get G a leapster?"
(damn damn damn damn) <----- thats what was being said in my mind.
I said "NO" with a look of why would we?
After she was distracted with something I ran to my closet and noticed the bag of SANTA gifts kind of sticking out. YOu can see the leapster,nothing else.
So now what? We can't give G the leapster from Santa now,she'll start to figure it out.
CRAP CRAP CRAP!!
We can save it for his birthday in Feb.(so tahts not a big deal) But now I have to think of something else to get him and OH DAMN!!!!! I told my mother in law to send him a game for Christmas,now we are so screwed!!

DAMN DAMN DAMN!! any ideas?

Theres some surprises that are so great......


There was a knock on the door. G looks out the window and says
"theres some old man at at the door."
I look out and its MY Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so excited to see him. And this is why my mom has to leave Christmas Day. Of course she wouldn't tell me why before. I get to spend the holiday with my Grandpa and he got to meet T. Its so special and such a bittersweet thing for me. I realy wish that my Grandma was still with us. Oh she would of loved my kids to pieces. She would of made doll clothes for JJ, blankets for the boys and on and on.
My most vivid memories of my childhood were of Grandma and Grandpa.
They had this owl cookie jar. Always full of cookies and the best part was they kept it low enough that we could help ourselves. They had a huge yard with a swingset. I loved running around with all my cousins. My Grandma was always there for me,through thick and thin,she was by my side if I asked and always in the shadows just waiting to hear me ask for a hug or a cookie ;-)
My Grandpa would tease me to no end and I loved every last minute of it. He would always tell me to stay away from his pickles and radishes. I loved both so much,I would eat them with him on the front porch in the summer sun. Only after Grandma would say "Oh Harry, share with the cute little girl" ;-)

SHHHHHHH!!!!
Its before 11:30 and I'm heading to bed. In hopes to get a clean house tomorrow.
Mr. Fun called, hes bought me another gift. That makes number 16,not that i'm counting. He said he couldn't resist today and yesterdays gift he thinks I will like the most. Makes a girl wonder.
OH I can't wait untill Christmas!!! I hate surprises, I wanna snoop but I won't.
And I've tried every trick in the book to get the kids to tell me. I get silence. They say nothing. They stand there in a blank stare. Man, they are good. Now lets hope they are just as good when daddy is trying to find out what hes getting.

My letter to santa

Santa Claus
North Pole, Earth


Dear Santa,

I have been a good girl.
It really wasn't my fault what happened at Crystal's Office party. It was Nancy who spiked the punch with too much Margarita. I can't help it if I drank 6 glasses. It was so good---smelled and tasted just like strawberry.

I thought it was funny when I put Julie's shirt on my head and danced the tango on the table while singing `Tequila Loves Me'. I didn't mean to break Crystal's cell phone and don't know why Crystal would accuse me of streaking.

I don't remember calling Chris's wife a huge chicken---even though she looked like one with maroon eye shadow and silver lipstick!

And when I threw up on Amy's husband's leg, it was only because I ate too much of that turkey.

After all that fun, I admit I was a little tired. So I fell asleep on my way home and drove my suburban through my neighbor's kitchen. I don't think that was any reason for my neighbor to call me a wonderful dog and have me arrested for drunk and disorderly!

So, Santa...here I sit in my jail cell on Christmas Eve, all lovely and quiet. And I'm really not to blame for any of this cold stuff. Please bring me what I want the most---bail money!

Sincerely and quickly yours,
Misti (Really a nice girl!)

P.S. It's only 9 bucks!

Now go write your own here---->Santa Letter

~~Last night around 1am T rolled over in his sleep. Slamming his head into my mouth and snapping my bridge in half. I didn't sleep well after that. I woke up and started to say as many `S` words i could think of(minus the bad ones that popped in my head, had to keep it G rated). The kids got a good laugh out of it. Mom without a front tooth was fun for them. For me, it was terrifying. I called the dentist with fingers crossed. They had an opening at 10:30am. I was so excited.
My toothless self took the broken bridge and headed to the dentist not knowing what was in store for me.
$150 dollars and just 20 minutes later I walked out with my bridge recemented and a smile on my face :)
She says it could last 6 months or 2 years but I will need a new one some day. *sigh*
Thats all I need,more dental work.
But for now,it works and i swear i am calling to schedule my oral surgery this week.

Well its not the computer

I thought for sure with no access to the anythng via computer my house would get in order. Not the case. The play room is one step closer to being done. Thats about it. My room and bathroom are torn apart.
BUT!!! The kids presents are bought and wrapped! I am done with the kids!! My cards went out on Monday and now for the baking. I have to find gingerbread cookies. I have looked everywhere,can't find them. I need 10 of them and I refuse to bake them since I am already baking 2 dozen other cookies for the church. I also have to bring in graham crackers and small candies for G's class and sprinkles for Wy's class. Lucily JJ's teacher hasn't sent a note home asking for anything.
__________________________________________
Wy's behavior seems to be improving slightly. If I remind him over and over throughout the day that we don't throw tantrums and we listen he seems to have a good day. So now i just need to change my parenting and remember to talk to him more about his behavior and how important it is that he listens. My older two behave so this is all new to me. I expect my kids to behave and the older two do so i expected Wy to behave too but hes a different kid. Hes one of a kind and so now the challenge is for me to change the way i parent him and hopefully we can find a middle ground.
__________________________________________
My mom is coming out and the kids are so excited. I think they are more excited that shes going to be here than about Christmas. that warms my heart. And tonight we found out Grandpa gets to come and that sent them jumping around the house.
Its going to be a great Christmas and its only a week away!!! Just a week,only a week. And that means T's 1st birthday is only a month away. So hard to believe. Its been almost a year since we brought him home.

Just a quick catch up post. the internet still isn't fixed the way we want it so I may still be a bit MIA.
and of course i leave you with pictures. T looks as if hes walking but hes not. He just crawls,stands,crawls,stands,crawls.

pictures removed b/c blogger sucks and i can fix them.

Sorry to be so MIA! Internet is down. I tried this morning and connection is very low so hoping this post.
I will be back as soon as Mr. Fun has a spare moment(laughing very hard,hopefully before Christmas) to crawl in the attic and try to fix it.


Also any info on ATI snap,share win contest would be appreciated here. I recieved a letter that I won a photo contest that I don't remember entering(that doesn't surprise me) They want to have some info notorized and sent back in a prepaid fedex enevelope. Wanting to know its legit before taking the next step. And I don't know what picture "won".

Why the dirty looks?


Theres this mom at JJ and G's school that seems to have a beef with me. Night before last JJ had a chorus concert at school. I had invited some friends and were saving 3 seats for them. This mom came over and started to sit down.
Me~I am savng these for a friend,i'm sorry
Her~ You should be (in a very RUDE tone) as she glared and walked away.
Once the concert was over she was walking towards me just glaring at me. I am surprised i didn't catch fire.

So tonight we had another concert and our eyes met and she just glared at me again. I smiled thinking she would smile back.Oh I was wrong. Took the boys to the bathroom, she was in there. As i was washing hands she was glaring at me in the mirror. So I asked "what the heck did i ever do to you?"
her response~ "you're just one of those "cute"(she used hand gestures for this word) moms that make us real moms look bad"
I was so shocked I didn't know what to say or think. All that came out was "what are you talking about?"
Her~"you know, you're skinny,you drive the nice vehicle,your kids wear the name brand clothes and are always looking so cute and are well behaved,you carry those expensive bags,you always look so put together."
Me~just standing there with fussy baby in one arm,whiney preschooler hanging on the other and a 5 year old trying to pull my pants down and my mouth hanging open.
Her~turns around starts to walk out the door and says "i don't like that my husband checks you out"

OKAY!! HOLD THE PHONES!! What the heck? I am left in shock and wondering why anyone would think this about me or say this to me????? And if your husband is checking me out maybe you should be glaring at him.
I am so giddy that i look so put together. Do I get a gold star for looking like an organized mother of 4? I am so not put together.How does walking your kids to school in your jammies and flip flops,no makeup,hair not combed and two other kids in their jammies look put together?
And another thing that bugs me,how does she know what kind of vehicle i drive? i never drive to the school.We walk because it would take longer to buckle everyone.

And for the record,night before last was the first time I have ever noticed this mom.
And frankly, not sure i care to cross paths with her again. I think shes a little crazy.

Take one VERY sick mom (who has mastitis), four energized kids, one VERY busy dad that is working fourteen plus hour days and you get nothing but pure chaos. CHAOS I tell you.
I have laundry piled everwhere, most clean, some dirty, all wrinkled. The dishes are piled up, the trash needs taken out and sheets need to be changed.
Its been twentyfour hours since I started the antibiotic and I am hoping tomorrow morning I can kick this house into shape.

It started Sunday morning with a plugged milk duct. I have had several so I treated it like I always do. By 10 PM I had a fever, by 10:30 it was up to 104.1. I felt awful.I finally got T to sleep around 11:30. Mr. Fun woke me at 3:30AM when he got home to give me more tylenol and my fever had broke.
The next morning(Monday) I woke up and walked to the bathroom. I felt like I was going to puke so I sat down. Called JJ to get dad. By the time he got to me I couldn't see. I felt him holding me and I told him I couldn't see. The next thing I know I am in the living room on the chair.
My fever came and went all day. I developed a blister on my breast that T is so dang curious about. Lets just hope he doesn't pop it one of these times *yeeooouuch* (or are you supposed to pop them?)
I finally got in to see the on call doctor around 8PM. He was young and I wasn't impressed. I finally told him that I knew it was mastitis and not shingles *rolleyes*
He thought I had shingles because of the blister.
So I am on Kelflex and lets hope tomorrow I am back to myself. Mr. Fun only gets one day off a week (untill after Christmas) and luckily it was yesterday. He took all three boys out of the house for a couple hours so I could sleep. This was T's first trip out without mom. He did great of course.

Goodbye Mr. Polar Bear


We will miss you



Mr. Fun worked untill 3:30 Am last night. Mr. Polar Bear was still present and accounted for. Mr. Fun took JJ to get her hair cut at 4:30PM today and on their arrival home they noticed he was gone.
Some rotten person stole him right out of our yard. I just bought him and now hes gone. We are sad,hurt and pissed off.

10th Christmas together



My most cherished ornament. Its been on ten trees, all sorts and sizes. The first year it was on a tiny tree in a studio apartment. Where it looked big and out of place. Now its on a tree full of memories in a house full of happiness. Its looks just right now. Perfect,even.

Helping Others



It seems that every year around this time I feel the need to help others. We do the angel tree at the mall. I've donated to Toys for Tots already and may do it again.
I feel for the children that don't get a magical holiday. I do realize its not about the toys. But it sure is fun to watch my children open those gifts and get so excited.
Even if my children do get a lot I try to teach them its about giving and the birth of Jesus.
I want Christmas to be about Jesus first,helping others second and presents third.
So far its not seeking in with the younger ones.
