I'm not doing so well on this whole blogging thing. I'm averaging like two a month. Well, today is my Mom's birthday. Since my last blog, I have had my gall bladder, and all 30 gall stones that were inside it, removed. That was a ton of fun with Mike having a new job, no insurance, and me missing lots of school, but like everything else, I SURVIVED! Who am I to gripe when so many people have it worse?
I am looking forward to the holidays this year. For Thanksgiving we are going to spend a few nights at the Opryland Hotel and go see the ICE exhibit and the Rockettes. We have been trying to get a new tradition going ever since my MIL passed away. Thanksgiving was always kind of her holiday.
I guess this one will be short and sweet, because I can't think of anything else to write.

Wow, it is November 1st. Time flies when you are having fun, I guess. Mike got a job...woohoo! He is working at Christian Brothers on Memorial Blvd. He has been there almost two weeks, and it seems like a nice place for him. Not as much money as Gateway, but we will make it.
The Race for a Cure is this Saturday. I am so excited that I got a team together to walk it. The Susan G. Komen foundation really is important to me. I am just extremely sad to say that all of my goals of training to run the marathon went down the drain when Mike lost his job. I started eating alot of crap and smoking. At this point, I will be lucky to have my team drag my sorry ass across the finish line! Oh well, there is always next year, right?
So, Eden told me she hated me today. I really didn't expect this phase of our relationship to kick in until she was at least 14, so I was a little surprised. It actually surprised me more that Michael took the high road and sat her down and explained to her that he could never tell his mom that he loved her again and that she needed to spend all of her time letting me know how much she loved me because one day I may be gone too. He cried, I cried, and she thought we were stupid. I don't think she realizes the severity of the word "hate" like we do. I think she just really didn't like that I had just gotten her into trouble, and that is how she expressed it. If I ever told my mom I hated her, I would've been picking my teeth up off the floor. My mom taught me to respect her so much, which isn't a bad thing, I just don't know how to teach my girls. They act like I am just one of them. Like when I say, clean your room, that I am just playing around with them. I respect my mom to the point that even now as an adult if I hated her guts, I wouldn't tell her. I may not ever speak to her, but she is my mother and I could never look her in the eye and say "I hate you." It's just weird to me how things change. My parents and all of my friends parents beat the crap out of us, and we would've never done something so stupid as to take a gun to school out of fear of what our parents would do to us. Now, it is politically incorrect to spank your child, but our public schools are turning into war zones. Does anyone else see a problem???
Wow, this post was so not planned to be this deep or interesting, but whatever works I guess...

Not to sound like I am bragging or anything, but I have never been one of the types of people to have to study or work hard in school, it just kinda came to me, but not this semester. I am sure I have made it harder on myself by missing some classes, but I don't know how I am gonna make it and pass. There is this one class, that I am so far behind in that I can't seem to get caught up. I go as much as possible to get caught up, then we have a regular class, I get that much behind again. It is SO frustrating. I am just so lazy, and I have so much going on right now that accounting is just not my top priority!
I am very happy that fall is finally here. I can't wait for Halloween. Noa is gonna dress as Annie, and Eden is gonna be Wonder Woman. I never really realized how much she looked like Linda Carter until I saw her in that costume!!

Who Knew??

It has been so long since I have posted in this blog, and now I find out it has been a super popular blog!! Sorry if some people have been missing out on my boring life. Chances are, if you think something in this blog is about you, it is and get over it!! Then for those of you who just read to be nosey, here ya go....
Michael lost his job almost two weeks ago, but we are making it fine so far. He is going for a very promising interview tomorrow. School sucks this semester. I can't wait to graduate and get this crap over with.
Ummm, I really don't know what else to say. You'd think being gone for a month would give me lots of things to talk about, but it doesn't!

just rambling

So, it has been a while since I have blogged. I don't know what all to get caught up on. I have started selling avon, which I originally only did to help out a friend. Now that I have started, it is going well. I am really enjoying it actually. I encounter so many women in my life and avon offers products for young and old at a reasonable price, so it kind of sells itself.
MDO is going great. I love teaching and working with these kids. The other teachers that I work with are great as well. I hope this is a place I will be for many years to come.
Noa is kind driving me crazy lately. Eden has been her usual super star self. For instance, by 9 o'clock this morning Noa had covered herself in black permanent marker. After "tatooing" herself, she found my makeup and put purple eyeshadow all in her eyebrows. Finally, to top off my afternoon she decided she wanted to save her gum for later, so she stuck it in the waiste band of her panties. Sweet, eh?
OK, something that has been on my mind lately... If someone knows that I don't like them and they mutually don't like me, then why can't they leave me alone? I am perfectly fine with not liking someone. I am not the type of person that needs to talk everything out. Just stay out of my way and leave me alone. Out of sight out of mind works well for me, so stay out of my sight...does that make sense? I have this person that just keeps picking and picking and not letting a lying dog lie. I don't know how to handle it, but it is starting to make me very angry.
Last but not least, I am a slacker. I have wanted nothing but a day to stay home and do nothing but clean and straighten my house. Now, here I am on the stinking computer all day long!!

So, I am really enjoying this weather change. I like all seasons because each has something unique to offer, but there is just something about fall. When the weather starts cooling off, it's like I start to feel good all the way down to my bones. It is so hard to explain. All I want to do is hang outside. The little things, like just eating dinner on the deck just seem like special family memories. Maybe in a previous life I won the lottery in the fall, who knows?
I FINALLY got a digital camera!! I think I am the last person in the free world to get a digital camera, but I have one....yippee!! Everyone can stay tuned to my super exciting blog for some pictures.

The Weekend

Well, the weekend is finally here. Not that it is too much different from any other day, but it is nice to think that it is the weekend! My summer semester is finally over. Last night I took my last final. I think I may have finished the semester with two A's and B. I can't wait to graduate!! I have a two week break, then I get to jump right in to fall semester. School really isn't that bad, it's just that it takes up so much of my precious time.
Tomorrow we are having Eden's birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. She is so looking forward to it. She has asked everyone we know to give her money so we can leave Noa with Daddy and go shopping together. I think it is very sweet that she wants to spend time with me. In ten years, she will probably want as far away from me as possible.
