Thankful Thursday

My Thankfuls this week…

This week I am thankful for a lot of things.
I love spending time with my hubby even though he will be going back to swing shift in about 2 months, give or take.
I, also, love the times I have with my daughter.
Seeing her communication skills fly through the roof in just a year. I can not wait to see how far she can go.
The able to talk to my husband and talk about our future and what we want in life.
I am thankful for heaters, because in Georgia it feels like your toes will fall off at night. Georgia weather is so weird. 70s one day, then cold front moves through and its like waking up to being in Canada, lool just kidding but just saying.
Example:
Today it is nice and pretty outside, wear your swimsuit folks!
Tomorrow, You will need a scarf, snow boots, mittens, and an ice pick.
In 2 Days, Tornado Warnings, Rain… Flooding is possible
The weekend… Blizzard warnings in effect for your area.

LOL! That is just an example, that’s not happening right now, but it sure does feel like it!
What are you thankful this week?

Ohh Yeahh Im Kicking

Tomorrow, I will update on my blog hops, but right now is a time to update yall with whats going on with me.

My neck is still hurting, but I have managed to somewhat keep my weight under control. I will know more November 3rd when I go back to the dr for a check up, but I get to start my weight loss pills once my neck heals, so right now I am just resting, reading to Jade and spending time with my hubby.

Most of you know hubby just went on 8 hr work days and off on weekends, but after this semester it looks like he will be put back on swing shift and only off every other weekend. When he was on swing shift last time he was only home 1 day per week due to mandatory overtime, so I am taking this time and spending all the amounts I can with him. 😀 Because I just might love him a little bit haha!

I will update as the weeks roll on. I am sorry I havent been commenting, visiting your blogs, or anything, but I promise it will get there eventually. I also will be posting book reviews, as that seems to be what I do now, lay and read lol.

I miss all of you 😀 and I hope you guys are doing well and having a fabulous weekend.

Hugs and such virtually,

Jenna

How is your weekend? Anything exciting happening?

Five Question Friday

(click the image above to link up with us)

1. Do you apologize to your kids if you’re wrong?
Actually I do. I think it shows that we can be wrong, but it is good to apologize if you are wrong.
One time Jade wouldn’t go to bed, she wouldn’t tell me why and after an hour of her coming back into the living room I told her to go straight to bed and don’t come back. I heard her crying, throwing a fit, I went after her and her door was blocked. I felt horrible for making her cry, but I told her I was sorry and gave her kisses.

2. Do you have a class ring, Letterman’s Jacket, or similar obscenely priced high school “must have”?
Why Yes, Yes I do. My mom has my class ring in her closet in a keepsake box. My Letterman’s jacket is hanging up in my closet, which I never wear and plus it has my ex-step dads last name on it, so I will probably just throw it out.

3. If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would you choose?
25! This has been amazing year. You are old enough to know better, and old enough what goes on around you. You are free of your own will and you can do things that others can not. At this age you are not to young, but young enough, you are old enough to vote, drink and hang out with your friends. You are not tired all the time, and you have the time to get yourself together.

4. What is your favorite (unused) baby name?
Boy – Jayden I have always loved the name, and most of all it starts with “J”
Boy – Conrad
Boy – Jasen
Girl – Hayley
Girl – Jasabel

5. If you could make your child like something what would it be?
The vacuum cleaner >.< She screams and cries every time I get it out.

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.

Drama at the RailRoad Crossing

So, we was heading to my mom’s house. (This was when we had all the bad weather, a week or so ago). Anyway, we loaded all us up in the car and we get to traveling down the road. We come to the railroad crossing and the gates where down, the lights were blinking and the signals were flashing. Jade starts yelling for the train… This is how it went down.

Google Image

Savoy cuts the radio off, rolls all the windows down, he looks right; he looks left.
We don’t hear a train, nor see one. We wait for about 5 minutes and he is thinking about going around the gates.
Meantime while we are “listening” Jade is smiling and yelling “Train, WHERE ARE CHUUUU?”
Me: Jade, I don’t think the train is coming.
Jade: No, mommy you hush!
Me: Savoy, what you going to do sit here?
Savoy: No! I am going around.
Savoy starts to zigzag through the gates.
Jade: NO DADDY! YOU NO TURN! YOU GO STRAIGHT! DADDY NO NO NO!

Savoy was watching Jade in the rear-view mirror. She was throwing her arms, and pointing her finger. She knew her Daddy didn’t make the right choice at all!
Jade: You Do Not Turn! No NO NO You go STRAIGHT!

Jade kept this up all the way to my moms which is about another 5 minutes or so from the RR Tracks. As soon as Jade got out of the car into her Nana’s arms, she was telling on her Daddy.

Needless to say, our 3-year-old tries to teach us thing. That is never zigzag through the railroad gates, you must wait patiently (even if you are under a tornado warning) haha!
I love my little girl! She is just too smart.

Thankful Thursday…

This week has been a rough week, but again I’m thankful.

  • The time that I have with my daughter.
  • Friends, who are always willing to talk to me.
  • Clothes, not just any clothes, but Size 12 pants!
  • Mom, who out of nowhere will help me.
  • Jade is getting better from being sick.
  • Jade having connection to our animals. It shows she cherishes them, and they are her close friends.
  • Paying off our car this week!
  • Having a roof, food, and water
  • A mystery flower blooming under the porch ledge.

Being Thankful doesn’t have to be about “God”; being Thankful is about being thankful in what you got. There is people in this world who doesn’t have clean water, a nice place to sleep, or even a bed to rest their head. Look around you, what do you have to be thankful for?
