Is it back?

My motivation, that is.

I haven't worked out in a long time, running included. Which really just made me sad. I enjoy running and working out, but have not had the energy for it at all. I'm sure the last few weeks can be blamed on the new job but it began before that even. I don't know where my energy went, I have been desperately trying to find it.

Yesterday I needed to get some fresh fruit, I decided to go to SuperTarget so I could browse the clearance isles, hehe. I walked by the workout gear, which I have looked at many times before, and decided to bite the bullet and get an exercise ball. I just did all the exercises outlined in the little booklet the ball comes with plus two more I've done at the gym. I am beat but feel so great! Woohoo!!

I hope that tomorrow we can all go for a nice hike or walk or something as a family and get some more exercise in. I thought about going for a run, but we'll see what happens. I don't want to burn out too quickly this time.

Hee hee hee!

M and I set up our little pool today so the kids could go swimming. They had a great time this morning and got out for lunch and a break. M decided that it was time to swim again so they all race off to get their suits back on. Next thing I see is a naked 5 year old racing by with his suit in his hands....

M "I can't have my wet swimsuit on in the house"
Me "where are you going?"
M "I gotta get dressed outside, its wet!"
Me (trying not to giggle) "you can't go outside naked!"
M "Oh yeah (sheepish grin) I forgot"

So I turn around to giggle and he hurries and gets dressed then outside he goes.

Too bad I was too slow with the camera, that would've been a great scrapbooking page, haha.

Edited to add that boys are gross!

Little man farted in the pool and discovered that it makes bubbles. So now Mason yells across the yard to me "Little man tooted and it made bubbles!!" Little man, not to be outdone by M has to yell it too "I tooted and made bubbles!" so M is pushing as hard as he can to fart too. Nice!

I don't know how........

you working moms do it. I have worked 4 evenings this week so far and I'm exhausted! Seriously, fall down and sleep on the floor exhausted. That is if I could sleep :( I got home at 1:30 this morning, took atleast an hour to fall asleep and I was awake again 4 short hours later. Still tired but unable to sleep :(

I'm just glad that I only have 3 scheduled days next week and that tomorrow is my day off ;)

Hormones suck!

I want to know why people say "oh, you poor thing. It must be hard dealing with your wifes hormonal outbreaks." How about the wife? Its not fun being angry at the world when it didn't do anything to you, lol. Pissed off that the kids are having a great time playing nicely in the pool, just because. Or frustrated that the garbage can is full when you are the one that filled it up.

Or maybe we should talk about the tears....lets randomly cry because maybe your son smiled at you without being prompted. How about tearing up because your daughter decided to clean up after herself without being asked. She's 9 years old for crying out loud! It isn't like this is a rare occasion, well unless you are in the angry part of the hormones, then it never happens :P

I hate going through mood swings. I feel like some sort of crazed whack job that should be locked in a closet and only fed jello and pudding or other soft safe things ;)

I'm going to start saying to the husband of a hormal woman "suck it up, she's the one dealing with all the crap!" tee hee.

Nacho Libre was awesome!

I don't know if it was because I was really stressed and needed a break or if it really was that hillarious, lol. Everyone I have talked to about the movie really enjoyed it, so I say two thumbs up :)

We also got to visit with dh's little brother, which is nice. He lives so close to us but we rarely see him.

The guys at dh's work decided to dress up, they had a costume contest and a Luciador (can't spell that) contest. I was quite embarassed to walk with dh and his mask, lol. But there were many guys that had them on and that helped ;). Dh didn't win, the bosses 8 year old son was there and won the crowd over, he was cute.

I can't wait for next months movie night, we'll get a babysitter for sure!

The power of words....

Hearing "I can't find a sitter for tonight." Just ruins the whole day :( Especially after 5 days of no husband and very little help with the kidletts, not to mention very little sleep, lol.

Then hearing the magical words "sweetie, my dad is coming over to watch the kids." Just lifts the spirit and starts the body happy dancin'. Woot!! I get to go see Nacho Libre, for free, without kids!!!

I survived!

We got back at about 10pm last night. The drive home wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined. I haven't slept much all week and was really worried about getting really tired while driving and dozing off. So I plugged in my iPod and listened to all my favorite songs and made sure to sing along, hehe.

It was really nice to see my parents and hang out with my sister. My other two sisters didn't visit much, but thats ok. I'm pretty used to it :P My parents are renting a home and have two cats and a dog, plus numerous other cats have lived there and Little Man's allergies have gone haywire, I'm hoping that just being home will help that calm down and I wont need to get him some medicine.

I drove to Vegas on Wednesday to visit two friends, that was a ton of fun! We swam for like 5 hours and have the sun burns to prove it, lol. I slathered sunscreen on Little Man twice and kept him in the shade as much as possible but he still got burned, of course he is a red head so I am not surprised. We will be looking into getting some of these for him.

I'm happy to be home and happy that dh is here too :). He went to eBay live in Vegas for work, worked hard and played hard, so he's happy to be home too, hehe.

Going on Vacation

My dh is going on a business trip for 5 days, so I decided to take the kids and head down to Southern Utah to visit my family :) We are leaving tomorrow morning and I wont be back until thursday night or friday morning.

I hope you all have a great week and don't miss me too much ;)

I got a job :)

Yay!! I'm excited. Its nothing exciting for most people, but it means having a little money and a break from the kids. I will be working at a baseball stadium grilling hamburgers and hotdogs, hehe. Part time and seasonal, it will end just after school starts, great timing!

Has it really been 10 years already?

Thursday Stu and I celebrated our 10th anniversary. I can't believe that it has been 10 years already, though when I think about it, I know it has been. We have three beautiful children, several different jobs, many moves, a ton of cars, and many fun stories because of those years.

We celebrated in February by going to Las Vegas without the kids, woot! So for the actual day, we said "Happy Anniversary" and that was that :), hehe.

I love you, my hunny, and can't wait to see what the next 10 years brings.

Thats what my daughter put in her yearbook, hehe. I saw it and said "hags? what is a hag?" and she looked at me with that look, you know the one "come on mom, you are so dumb!" One that I'm sure I'll get to know well ;)

"Have A Great Summer!"

ha! Think she'll giggle when she sees that again when she's 30? hehe.
