Spending time with Hubby, watching football

Yesterday, I got to spend all day with my husband. We laughed, and snuggled on the couch. We watched the game as we waited patiently for our team to warm up and give it their all. It was a nerve racking game, but I have been watching football all my life.
Even needed up over at Lisa’s house. I love spending time with her, catching up with what is going on. We laugh a lot when I am over there, and I will always remember that.

Today, we craved a pumpkin with Jade when she got home. She loved it! She even made sure Daddy put eyes, and teeth.. That is important!

Wednesday, My mom and I are taking Jade back to the library for story time.. We will see how that goes!

I hope you all had a wonderful, enjoyable weekend. I hope it was filled with a lot of laughs, and memories were made.

We added another year, Happy Anniversary!

(a little bit white, but hey it’s a picture)

This week has been pretty good, and I have to say today has been amazing. My mom is keeping Jade for the night, and we got to celebrate our 6 year Anniversary.
We started the day off with dropping Jade off at my moms. After we got back to the car we had no idea what we wanted to do. Our first plans were to go to a Dirt Track Race, because that is how we met, but later figured out they didn’t have races this weekend. We ended up 40 minutes away from home where we adventured into lots of stores. We came back home with a New Alabama shirt and hubby a new Alabama hat 😀 This is exciting, well, we love football, haha! We came back home to watch the Alabama Game, which they WON! 52-7.. WOOHOO Roll Tide! 7-0 Undefeated (knock on wood).
Before the game we went to Crackel Barrel. I love that place! Their food is so good, and it is such a homey environment. After the game Hubby wanted to go to the movies, but I changed his mind.
Me: We can go to the movies any time, why not go to a haunted house?
Hubby: What am I going to get out of it? I don’t like Haunted Houses.
Me: Well, you can laugh at me!!

I could tell Hubby wanted to go see Real Steel, but he drove right past the movies and off to Ghost Town we went. I will have to say that I wasn’t scared, but I did jump at a few points, most of the stuff was predictable. Oh and plus!! There was this guy in front of us and he was like jumping back, screaming louder than I was. He had all of the group laughing, and of course, I was the only girl in the group so all the people pointed me out to “scare” me.

All in all, It has been awesome! We got to spend time together, and celebrate our Anniversary. I hope your Saturday has been a great one too!

My Neck, My Back, Oh My

For the past week. I haven’t been posting a lot. I am beginning to think I have a pinched nerve where the spinal cord meets the neck. It is swollen, however, I am going to the Doctor Oct 5th which is Wednesday!! Yaaay! Not only am I getting my neck seen about but also my weight lost. I miss all of you guys dearly, but I hope to be back soon. xoxo

My weekend was fun and very enjoyable. I even got to cut grass without getting sick. We had a lot of time just us and Jade did lovely in public. No meltdowns nor tantrums! All in All a great weekend!

I have over 500 posts to read and comment OH MY!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend 😀

OH!! and Alabama won their game on Saturday… so that’s a plus HAHA!!

Everything Came Tumbling Down Around Me

Most of you know I am a stay at home mom of a 3-year-old, who will be 4 at the end of December. We only have 1 vehicle, we also don’t live in a big town and it takes about 20-30 minutes to get to a bigger town (and no not the capital, haha)

Monday –
Hubby had to come home from work (30 minute drive home) to pick Jade & I up, so I could take Jade to the Doctor. Hubby waited till we got called in the back before leaving to go to school. (Which was really nice of him) Jade and I go to the back room, she is fine for a little while, and she was playing with her toys (I remembered to pack them in my purse). Jade noticed a Barney book in the room, I didn’t bring it was just already there. I didn’t think anything of it, so I just handed it to her. She was fine when the Doc came in and told us she has sinus’ and teething molars. When we was getting ready to leave the little room Jade started throwing a fit about the Barney book that she had to leave behind. She was screaming telling me “No, It is Mine!” and this is where it started to stress me out.
My Mom was supposed to be at the Doc Office already to pick Jade and I up, so we could go to her house. When we get to the front of the building my mom isn’t there. I let Jade go play; I pull out my book I read a chapter or so, still No Mom. I grabbed my phone called my Mom and she is running late. She was apologizing and telling me what was going on, which is fine. Things happen, I understand. I hung up with my mom to turn around and Jade is standing UP in the waiting room chairs, walking… (O.M.G. MOMENT) I grab Jade down told her not to be walking in the chairs, sat her booty in a chair and told her not to move. At this point I could feel the pulse racing through my veins!
Jade starts playing again (with toys that are at the Doc Office). She is laughing, having a good time with sudden outburst of running in a circle then going back to what she was doing. I read another chapter in my book and my mom was still not there yet. I called her again, she is still waiting on something at work, something that couldn’t be helped, but the Doc Office is now closed and they are waiting on me to leave. I am watching Jade while I talk to my mom. While I watch her, I watch her climb up onto the kids table and STANDS UP (O.M.G. Did I really raise a Monkey!? What is this!? Get on my nerves day?) I hang up with my ill, outraged, ready to go. I then just walk Jade outside and we walk in circles till my mom gets there. Thank Goodness.
After all that I got to relax at moms as we went walking with a dear friend of ours, and Jade really had a nice time with watching the ducks at the lake. Mom helps me when she can, and for that it is something to be grateful for.
At the end of the day we only got out of the house for about 4 hours, but that is a lot better than none.
Monday – Total of 20 hours of being at home (just that day)

Tuesday – I am still exhausted from the night before and Jade is hyped up on Medicine. Not really a relaxing day, but I did much of nothing.
Tuesday – Total of 24 hours at home

Wednesday – Stayed at home
Wednesday – Total of 24 hours at home

Thursday – Stayed at home
Thursday – Total of 24 hours at home

Friday –
I had a Doc Appointment about my ears. Yes they are fine, just seems to be allergy related and I just have to give the medicine some time to work to see if it will help with itching and being irritated. Hubby kept Jade in the car while I ran in to my appointment and ran back out. He let her color and play while I was gone.
We decide to head to a store to look for me some new tennis shoes (mine look like they are about to fall apart). I was looking around when Jade starts laughing and playing really loud, I turn to look at her and she is climbing the shelves. (It was all I could do not to just break down in the middle of the store) Hubby grabs Jade and begins to walk her to the front of the store where I was lingering behind just wanting the screaming to stop. We get to the counter and place my tennis shoes up there. The lady starts to check them out and the price is like 2x the price of what we thought. She called management and Jade noticed the Suckers. (REALLY!? They have to put SUCKERS in kids reach at the counter???) Jade starts throwing a bigger fit, kicking, screaming, everything and anything with “want” flying out of her mouth. I grab her hand and I walk fast to the car. We both climb in and we both break down in the car. (Emotional a bit? I think so.)
Hubby comes back to the car and we head home. We weren’t even out of the house for 2 hours.
Friday – Total of 22 hours at home

Saturday –
There is a huge yard sale about 10 minutes away from here. Like miles and miles of yard sales. I wanted to go. I wanted to get out of the house, spend time as a family, but yeahhh…
After 3 stops Jade starts her fit over toys. She starts screaming, and we are off back to the car where I just have an emotional breakdown.
All we do is go “home”. I am so sick of home. I just rather pitch up a tent and move to the mountains for the weekend, something to get me away from here. I finally just broke down and told Hubby I couldn’t stay at home. I had to get out before I get worse. I am a social person, and I have no social environment but with a 3-year-old, and you know they can only hold a conversation for so long.
I have been in a house with nowhere to go since 2004. It is catching up to me, emotionally, physically, and mentally. I finally just let loose and told Hubby how I felt, which he agreed. We are even looking into how to help Jade instead of fighting with her.
I have come to conclusion that if we are at a store she sees us buy something; she thinks she needs it too. So, we need to be fairer about things, and stop making the problem worse for her, and myself.
Also, we need another way to get around this place. I need the car so I can get Jade into a Daycare so she can have fun, and play with other kids. If we had a car I could even get out of the house to enjoy “new/old” friends. Maybe even get a part-time job. I wouldn’t want something that is every day, because well frankly I still want to be a family, and have our family time.
Anyway, Saturday I ended up going to my childhood friend’s house for about 3 hours. I took him out to eat and we caught up with what was going on in his life, and all the news things. He really is like my big brother and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
When I got home I finished watching the Alabama game with Hubby. Which Alabama won! WOOHOO! We took Jade to my mom’s (when she didn’t mind and understood I needed a break) and Hubby took me out to eat, just us. It was really nice of him.
Saturday – Total 16 hours at home

Total hours at home from Monday – Saturday 106 hours. Still a lot right?
For a long time we would stay home weeks at a time, we would go get groceries come back home, etc. I am tired of sitting at home cleaning house day in day out. It is time for a change.
So, now you know where I have been.
My Facebook will be back tomorrow. I deactivated due to everything going on. I needed some space for me, and I wanted to live without Facebook just enough so I could breathe without my phone vibrating off the table.

I know Six Word Saturday is on Sunday. So, I am not the early bird, and I didn’t get the worm. But hey! I was having fun with family. So, back on track… My Six Word Saturday

Another great weekend with the family

Friday, we went to visit Lisa and the rest of her little family. We had such a great time. We even shot off fireworks and sat by the campfire. Pleasant day, I must say. Bray did hurt his finger, but he is all good in the neighborhood. Jade had a wonderful time. You could hear the laughter and giggles from the kids, and the guys shooting off the fireworks as the dog (Drake) tries to eat them, haha!

Saturday was filled with staying outside. I read my book, weeded out some weeds in the flowerbed, listened to the football game on the radio, and could hear Jade played with the dogs in the yard. It was really peaceful and even finished a book. After I read my book I even played with Jade. We ran around the front yard about 5x. She is such a motivator.

Sunday (today) We went to church, had pictures made, came home and I went back outside to start on a new book. Life is grand, and I don’t think it could get any better. I love being able to go outside, lay out in the sun and not worry where my child has gone, or who might be pulling up. I even got some sun on my shoulders, and my face.

I hope your weekend was filled with laughs and fun. What did you do this weekend?

Such A Busy Weekend With Family

Everyday this weekend was spent with family.
Saturday
I helped my mom clean out her garage since some of Jade’s things were in there, and plus every once in awhile it is good just to help out 🙂 I even helped with outside but I couldn’t do much, so I helped put a whole wheat pizza in the oven. Later that afternoon Hubby came to help us finish.
We even took a load to Hubby’s relatives to see if anything would sale in the yard sale, and I made $18 just in 4ish hours!
Sunday
We woke up early to get ready to go to a Family Reunion on my Pawpaw’s side. The last time I went to the Reunion I was pregnant with Jade, so everyone was so happy to see her. hubby took care of Jade while I visited with family. It is always great to leave with a smile on your face. Family should always be important. I can’t wait till next year.
Jade even played with one of her cousins and he told Hubby, “Please don’t take her from me, I could play with her all day!” Hubby thought that was really nice. Jade will be able to play with him again next year. They live over 2 hours away, so Family Reunions are so wonderful.

How was your weekend?

I get to fold clothes today!

I spent most of the day yesterday just washing and drying clothes. The house is a wreck since I took yesterday off to rest an awful headache from allergies. So, today is folding and putting clothes up. Only thing I wish is it didn’t take 2 hours to dry 1 load of clothes, really puts a pinch in forgetting that there is clothes in the washer. If you ever have forgotten your clothes in the washer, you have to re-wash them.. ughhh the never ending cycle.

So, off to fold clothes, if you would like to help just let me know hahaha! I am hoping to get the rest of the house cleaned to.. If you miss 1 day around here it looks like a bomb went off, especially in the kitchen. ~sigh~

Happy Saturday everyone!! Next week Hubby starts a new schedule at work: Monday through Friday, ohhh yeah! No more swing shift till he gets done with school 🙂 I am so excited!

New Medicine means 5 pound gain!

So, I was put on medicine due to having 4-5 infections since the beginning of the year. They decided to put me on another antibiotic this month (I just got through taking another antibiotic last month). I have noticed during the time I am taking medicine that I am hungry, more than normal. I started craving foods that I haven’t had in over 6 months (Hot fudge brownies, and etc). Well in the last month I have gained 5 pounds! Sucks, right? I know. The demon in my kitchen that larks beneath me as I try to shoo him away. The cravings got so bad I was “smelling” the brownies, yeah I knew I had to do something, but I don’t know how long I can go on like this.
On another hand, it is not just the brownies, but it is now the fact that I have to take this medicine when I go to bed and I am OUT for 12 hours. There is no waking up to go pee, or waking up wondering what time the clock says, or if hubby got up to go to work, OH NO… I am out… ZZZZing for 12 hours straight.

Blah! New medicine… You suck, just so you know.
My tests for my ultrasound and other things all came back fine, but I still have to take the medicine for another 3 weeks… I am really debating on calling them to “switch” my medicine… I hate feeling drowsy!

Oh, I ran out of paint.

I am beginning my living room project, but when I went on a search for my paint, so I can begin the coffee table, I had no luck finding it. I finally asked my Hubby where the paint was and he asked why. I told him I wanted to get started on painting the coffee table and he said, “Well, you are just going to have to hold on till we get more paint.”
Now I am wondering where all my paint went! We bought 2 small (32 oz) cans, and only used about 2 inches out of the 2nd can, so where did all the paint go? ~Sigh~ Looks like I will be on hold to paint till next week.

Other than that, my weekend is going great! One of my friends came by and brought her kids yesterday, while Hubby was at work. Jade had so much fun that she ran up to her daddy when he got home and started telling him all about meeting Jon Jon, Day Day, Nathan, and Levi.

I hope you are having a great weekend!
