Pizza

We are going to make homeade pizza for lunch...got the crust ready so I thought I would blog for a sec. Things are going ok.....Ryan is making me pay for him being gone this weekend!!!!!!

We got Brie her loft bed yesterday. It is very nice......but not with all the bells and whistles! (They wanted 600-1000 dollars for those) we were able to find the basic frame, solid wood at Menards for under 200.00, so we got it. (They only have them before school starts, so had to get it now.)

Hope all is well,
Jackie

Hosta Flower

Yippeeee I did it!

I deleted the spam................whooooo hooooooo!!!!!!!

Today is super duper. No kiddies (my parents took them for the weekend so that I can blog.......shoot, I mean pack) I was able to get a wedding gift, baby gift, and just have some quiet shopping time! I also had lunch with my grandma. Love her to death, but I think that she is the most oppinionated person I know, and she doesn't think so! We did have a nice time though.

We are now just under a month till we move. For those who have asked, we are staying in the state. We will be about an hour and a half away from our old home. I am starting to get excited, although I will miss my good friends.....especially Kari!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love and Hugs,

Tubes

Brie had ear tubes put in 2 and a half years ago. We had to do it because she was loosing her hearing.............so duh, no choice. The one in her right ear has been out and healed up great. Then to the left ear........we finally had to have it pulled out. It hurt her a bit...but she didn't cry. Now for the GREAT news. HER EAR ISN'T HEALED!!!!! I am now praying that it does heal on its own. If it doesn't she will have to have ANOTHER surg. to patch the whole in her ear! AAARRRGGG! I wish her first dr. would have explained that this could happen. All he did was tell me she needed them and to schedule the appt. I am just so thankful that we met her new ENT! He is so kind and gentle to her.......I just love him!

Ok, other than that it wasn't to bad of a day.

Love and Hugs,
Jackie


My POOPING cat! You just push it down and jelly beans pop out the rear!!!!!!! I HAD to get it!

Proud papa!!!!!!!!!!!

Goodbye

Tonight the neighbors had a farewell party for us. It was so nice. The whole neighborhood was there as well as a few friends. I couldn't believe it.....it was just so nice! I have never met such wonderful, caring people as I have in this town.................it is so hard to say goodbye!

Ryan has a bit of a cold........so of course that means he is dying! (MEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I just pray Jayson doesn't get it.....he is such a big baby when he gets anything!

Well, back to packing.

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

What a boy!

Ok, thought this was going to be a wonderful week. I guess I really can't complain too much, I am still alive and almost saine!

Well, Ryan, my WONDERFUL BOY has been up to his old tricks. He decided it would be wonderful to turn off the big garage freezer!!!! Jayson found it today.........water all over, all of the food ruined! I kept my cool. I also went to do a load of laundry, but the lint basket was missing. "Ryan, where did you put the dryer thingie"....no words, he just pointed to the trash. Well, I just put in a new trash bag, so Jayson had to rumage through the big bin! NASTY. Thankfully it was found.
My friend Kari took the kids for me today so I could get some work done. (I think she thought I needed a break............love ya sweetie) I was able to get some house work done and get a massage (SP). My mother in law gave me a gift certificate for one hour...............man, I must be really stressed, 'cuz I had a ton of knots to be worked out, and IT HURT LIKE THE DICKENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love and Hugs,

Toilet paper queen!!!!!!!!

Hi all-
Went to a bridal shower yesterday. (Brie is a flower girl......can't wait to post those pictures!) It was really fun. They did a twist on the "toilet paper gown" and it was just a veil. Brie was my "bride", and we kicked some butt! I even made some roses out of toilet paper! I hope to get the picture of her.......'cuz I have to say I did great!

Our new home was on the way home, so we were able to take the kids to see the house. They loved it, and Ryan couldn't believe the washer and dryer (full size, yiiiippppeeeee) instead of portable! I was able to take a ton of pictures, so I can start to decorate!!!! We also me the owners and one of the neighbors! THey are all sooooooo nice! It is still going to be hard, but it does make it better meeting such nice people. Carol (the neighbor lady) is a 1st grade teacher.........now if I have homeschool questions I have someone to ask! (Since Brie will be first grade) She also scrapbooks. THey have a 4 month old baby girl, so Brie is excited to play with her and I can have my "baby fix".

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

MOM!!!!!!

Ok, this is never good to hear!!!!!!!! Brie came in screaming.........."Ryan is spraying water in the garage". So I thought she said AT the garage........not the best, but not a big deal. I get up to go and check it out.....................................................AAAAAWWWWWWWW! He really was spraying the hose into the garage! Since we are moving we have everthing packed up in there!!!!! Wet boxes, dripping tools! I was ready to put a free sign on him! I calmly told him to get to his room, picked him up, put on his pjs, and then I left! I went to the grocery store. Then I was naughty and had one of the check out ladies stand in a carryout cart and I pushed her around. We kinda broke the cart..........but I did fix it! (DON"T FREAK OUT KURT!) I also handed out peanut butter cups to strangers. (I think they thought I was the strange one though, and they would be right!)

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

Finally Friday

Ok, the news is on. 185$ to send your teddy bear on a trip..........what the heck. I think some people have way to much money. What to do with 185.00.

1. Give it to a worthy cause

2. Spend it on a nice dinner

3. Send some stuffed fluff on a trip
PEOPLE CAN BE SO WEIRD!

So I have had a nasty potty mouth today. (SORRY KARI!!!!) I am not sure what got into me, but I gotta stop. I also had 1/2 a wine cooler and am a bit, well, I don't even know.

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

Naked Lady (Hey, I couldn't believe the name either......but I looked it up!)

Thursday

It is Thursday, the air is cooler, the neighbor is mowing the lawn. (I love the smell of fresh cut grass) It is a good day!
I have to get some packing done, but who really wants to pack when it is so nice out????? I have a ton done, did it before the house when on the market, but I have a lot of "stuff".
We are now looking for a loft bed for Brieanna. She has been such a great help with keeping the house clean and watching her brother, that I want to get her something really special. She also agreed to take the smaller bedroom in the new house (Ryan will get the bigger one, but he will also get the bulk of the toys) She is such a special girl.........I really don't know how I got so blessed!
Well, wishing for you a wonderful day, a bit of chocolate, and lots of smiles!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

Earthquake

Ok, If you felt the earth shake around 10:00 this morning I just want you to know there wasn't an earthquake. I was doing the happy dance!
IT IS SOLD, DONE, FINISHED, ALL GOOD! He found out that the house is solid (OF CORSE IT IS, OR I WOULDN'T HAVE LIVED HERE 6 YEARS!!!!!!) All of the papers are signed and all we need to do now is wait for the closing on the 30th of Sept!
Ryan is sleeping and Brie is playing with her polly pockets, what a great day!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

Stress SUCKS!

Ok, life has been non-stop crazy around here! The guy who bought our house has never been in an older home, so doesn't have a clue what to look for in a almost 100 year old house. He wanted to do the inspection himself.........AAAAARRRRRRGGGGG! I think I will name my ulcer Marty!!!!!!!! He does have a cute 5 year old boy though, so at least I can make a cute goodie basket for him!
I am just praying tomorrow they say everything is going through, and that I just have to get ready for closing! Why the heck do people WANT to move???? I think they just might be on crack! I am just so thankful that I have great friends and family that support me, and understand that I am a bit crabby! And of course I know that everything is going to work out.............I do have faith, but I have to vent or I will need the crack too!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

PS........hope the spelling is ok ;)

OUR NEW HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you find the twirlie??????

Why?????

Ok, maybe I am just so loved that the someone REALLY doesn't want to see me go (GAG) but this went a bit to far. Last night someone drove up onto the lawn and hit the sign. (Picture comming) Why on earth would you do such a thing?
We called the cops this morning, since the sign isn't ours. They thought it was funny, but they are thinking it was a drunk driver. I am just so thankful nobody was hurt!!!! We know the car is green (paint transfer) and that it will have a front end scrach.......so I am gonna be like on CIS, looking at all of the green cars in town.
What really ticked me off is when the police guy asked me if they broke my twirlie. HECK YES.....THEY BROKE MY 2 YEAR OLD YARD WIRLIE!!!!!!!! I think they should get the maximum sentence.....care of a 3year old boy for a whole week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh well, I just think it is a hoot........it will make the paper, and people in our little town are stopping to stare! funny!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, it is so hard to imagine how desperate and depressed I was feeling just a few days ago. Wow, God is so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our house sold at 10:47 this morning!!!! YIIIIIPPPPPEEEEE! Now we have to go and find a house, although I think I already did online. It met some of my requirements.

1. Fence.....yup has one, although it is a chain link one, so I can just imagine Ryan trying to pee out the holes!!!!!
2. 3 bedrooms on the same floor........yup, and even one in the basement for ME!!!!!!
3. 2 bathrooms.......yup, in case Ryan decides to play plumber, we will have one to go to!!!!!

I am just so excited! Thanks again for all the good thoughts and prayers!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie

Break Down

Ok........so I finally lost it. I got home from a friends N.N.O. party, and called my mom (returned her call). I had to hang up 'cuz Ryan was NOWHERE in the house.......so I went outside. " RYAN................" Well about a min later Brie found him naked in the neighbors sandbox. Ok, so I took him to bed. His room is TRASHED! He also did something to the ac unit in his room and turned it off........so it is HOT!!!!!
I called her back, and LOST IT!!!!!!!!!! I haven't slept in a couple months, friends are ill, family wants all of my time, Ryan is just naughty, house showings, ect, ect. I just gave in and sobbed.....so hard Brie had to take the phone. I haven't done that in YEARS!!!!!!!!
I am just going to let go and let God.....cuz I know I have no contol of most of this stuff. I keep a little card by my computer that says "God sends no stress.........that chocolate and prayer can't handle. Better get me some more kitkats!

Love and Hugs,
Jackie
