I went today and got Tony's birth certificate so we can go Saturday to get his learners again. He called Jeff (second ex step dad) about moving across the hall from him into my old apartment, like I suggested. But he never gave a straight answer as to whether or not that's what he wants to do. He's looking into working at the grocery store with Jeff and also thinking about going out on the road with Chris. I told him that no matter what he wants to do, I'm here and will help him as much as I can.
Jeff called me yesterday to tell me that Tony called and was wondering if I knew what was going on. I told him I did, because I do. Then I tell him everything that I'm doing to help Tony and I guess that impressed him a bit. He tells me later in the conversation that he's proud of the way I turned out. I'm nothing like my brothers. I work hard and have a future planned. I'm mature and level-headed. I already knew this, but its nice to hear from time to time. Then he proceeds to tell me that he's making me executor of his will again. He took me off a few months ago and made my oldest brother executor. I told him it was a mistake that Josh doens't know the first thing about taking care of things. Apparently he had a talk with Josh about it and he admitted that he didn't know what to do.
My mom turned 50 yesterday. I already gave her the present a couple weeks ago. I got her a butterfly candle holder, that she'll probably use as a candy dish or something.
Hubby decided to go with the FHA loan, so he's called the mortgage lady this morning and now the paperwork is under way. Hopefully by tomorrow our papers will be ready to sign so we can get this going!
A guy I went to high school with died Monday in a car wreck. I'm devastated. I had a little crush on him all through school, as I'm sure most girls did. He was quiet, but kind of popular. He was only 26. Same age as me. Makes me wish that I kept in contact with friends from school. Makes me sorry that we didn't have a 5 year reunion so we could all meet up then. Our 10 year is 2 years away. Time goes by too quickly. The visitaion is tonight. I'm going to try to go.

No Words

Sorry that I didn't post yesterday. Its been weird and crazy lately.
So, Monday I went down and talked about the loan for the house. I had called hubby and had him on speaker so he could ask any questions that he may have. The mortgage lady gave us 3 options for a loan. One is the FHA loan with almost $7,000 for the down payment, 3.75% interest, $3,000 closing costs and PMI for life and is roughly $809 montly payment. Another loan is conventional, which we may not acutally be able to get due to my credit score. But it has everything the FHA loan has except after 20% of the loan is paid off, the PMI goes away. This one is $838 a month until the PMI is paid down, then its $718. The in house loan is what I'm pushing for. Its 3.99% interest, no down payment, but is adjustable rate. We would be locked in to 3.99% for 5 years and then after that we can either go with the new interest rate or refinace and possibly get a fixed rate loan. She even said that after 6 months we could refinance and possibly not have to pay for PMI at all becuase our house is valued for way more than what we are buying it for. She estimated the payment for this loan to be about $763, but hubby looked real hard at it and realized that this was the only loan she didn't add taxes and insurance to. So if you add that in, its almost $900. We can't do that. Hubby is trying to get an insurance quote to see exactly what we would be paying. That would play a big role in which loan we go for.
My brother, Tony informed me that dad is not only wanting him out of the house, but now he wants everyone else out too. I've been trying to help Tony get things ready so he can move out, but now that Dad's wanting everyone out, its making things a bit difficult. Tony needs his drivers lisence before he can go anywhere by himself. My step mom told him that he could live with her until he's ready to go out on his own. He called my other brother, Chris about getting a place with him and he's all for it. I told Tony I'll go with him to look at places and help get him set up. I really want to punch my dad in the face. I knew this was going to happen sooner or later, I was just hoping for later. This is just who dad is. This is why none of his kids want anything to do with him. So... they are going to try to find a place and be moved out in 2 weeks before Dad comes back. He works out on the road and is gone a lot. I told Tony I'd help them pack and move and I've even got some things they can have if they need anything. He said that he needs to trade his car in because there's no way he can learn to drive it in time because its a stick shift. So I found him a car. Its a 2000 Pontiac Firebird, black...his favorite color. I hope he looks into it. The only thing wrong with it is the AC needs charged, which is an easy fix. I could do it for him. I told him I can help him anyway he needs me except financial. I don't have any money to spare, but I do have time and patience. I told him that he should have told me sooner. I would have went down there and yelled at dad while he was still here. I told hubby that if dad ever laid a hand on Tony, I'll go down there and kick the shit out of him myself. I don't think dad is like that anymore, but from the sounds of it, he's working on going down that road again.
So, there's where my head is right now. I'm worried about my bubby and I'm fuming at dad.

Another day

So, I went to try to get the papers started for our loan, but they didn't get them drawn up yet. It should be ready today. YAY! I had a talk with hubby about moving. I told him I'm excited and scared at the same time. I want to cry and dance. It'll be the first time Lilly will be in a room by herself. For the past 7 years, she's always been in my room. Even at her father's house, she shares a room with her sister. And there's so much space in that house. We are used to being cramped up and not being able to walk around without bumping into each other. I'm going to end up losing track of Zach a million times. Mom told me she's going to get me a bell to hang around Zach's neck. Made me laugh. The really good thing that I like about the house is that there is a door that you can close to keep the kids out of the basement. I don't have to worry about Zach falling down the stairs..... until he can open the door.
We have enough furniture. Hubby had some stuff at his sister's in her garage and I asked to go see it while we were down there Friday for his nephew's birthday. We have the rest of Lilly's bedroom. There's a dresser and a table. Then we have 2 good looking chairs that kind of match my couch and love seat that I have in storage. Then there's 2 more chairs and a couch that can go in the basement for seating down there. We also have 2 recliners, one tan and one blue that matches the couch and love seat that we are currently using. The blue one will probably go in the basement and the tan one in the living room. The couch that we are using now is in bad shape, so it'll just get thrown out, but the love seat is in good condition. It might end up in the basement too. The plan is to finish up the basement and make the big room a play room, so a lot of seating is needed.
I asked the mortgage lady if there was a chance that we wouldn't get the loan and she said that since we are preapproved, there's a very slim chance that we won't get it.
Lilly called me yesterday from the beach. She's having fun. They got there late Saturday and she spent most of Sunday at the beach. She said that everyone got sunburned but her. I hope it stays that way. Not everyone else getting sunburned, but for her to not be. I put her on speaker on my phone so Zach could talk to her and he cried instead. He misses his sister. We'll get her back in 6 days. I'm glad she's having fun and wasn't calling me crying saying she wants to come home. She did that to me last time she went to the beach, but she was 3 or 4 then. I told her this time would be better because she is older.
I also discussed his hubby how we're going to surprise Lilly with the house. I was really wanting to have her bed, furniture and toys in her room before we took her. Just pick her up one day and tell her we're going to look at a house and then when she walks in, she'll see her stuff. I told him that's what I would like to do, but it'll be hard. We decided on surprising her just like that but instead of having all that stuff in her room, we'll only put in a few toys like her favorite stuffed animals and the picture she has of the first time she held Zach.
I think as soon as I know we have the loan, I'm going to start to slowly pack up some stuff that we don't need in the next couple weeks. I'll pack up all my books, all the extra cups and dishes, our movies and games, some clothes, and just some odds and ends. It'll make the whole packing process a bit easier. I just don't know where I'll store the boxes. I don't have any room to stack them in the apartment.

I Feel Like Dancing

Sorry for not posting anything yesterday, but I was a bit busy. And no... no pics of WV today.
Yesterday marked my 4 year anniversary. It was a good day. I got up, took Zach to day care, came home and took a shower, ate breakfast and then I got my hair done. It took 3 hours! One hour was just to cut my hair. I got about 12 inches cut off, got it layered and highlights put in. Then she curled it for me for free because it was my anniversary. I've never had highlights before. I like it. I as a bit scared that hubby wouldn't like it. After my hair was done, I rushed home and changed into a dress a haven't worn in years and painted my toes blue to match the dress. I put on some make up and then just sat on the couch waiting for hubby to come home. He came home and he just kind of stared at me. I was getting worried that he didn't like it. I got all sad and asked him if he didn't like it and he looked confused. He didn't even see my hair! He was more focused on me wearing a dress. After he saw my hair, he told me to get up so he could see all of and he said he was really happy with it.
We signed the papers to the house Wednesday night. Everything went smoothly. I'm going today to get the loan process started. I think I have everything. Hubby just has to come by and sign the papers later.
1000 Awesome Things is back!! Neil is posting all the same things, but with new stories and we can all comment again. I'm glad. I have new stories to share relating to a lot of the posts. I think doing this will bring out a lot of new people too.
I was supposed to be off work today, but boss needed me to come in because the only other person that can do input is off work too. I don't know why I was asked to come in, but whatever. I don't care. There's another vacation day that I can reserve for moving. Oh, the closing date is July 25!!
Here's some pics of my hair before and after. I'm sorry if its out of order again, but I'm sure you can tell the difference. The thing that surprised me was that as long as my hair was, it was even.

Tomorrow is Signing day

So we didn't meet with the guy yesterday to sign the contract. We will do it tomorrow. Hubby was out on a fire call when the guy called wanting to meet. Part of me is really excited about getting the house, but part of me is kind of dreading the whole thing. I feel that there is just going to be a lot of arguments while moving and fights about where to put things. I don't want anyone involved that shouldn't be involved. I actually would prefer to do it by myself and just have hubby and one of his buddys do the heavy lifting. My bff and I packed and moved all my stuff in one day once already... we can do it again. I don't think I'll be able to do it with hubby. I did tell hubby that I think a good way to avoid some arguments is to go to the house before we start moving things in and decide then together where things are going to go. I don't want any one else involved telling me where to put things. If they aren't going to live there, they have no say in the matter. I don't want any help moving. I am a pro now, I can handle it myself and really enjoy doing it anyway. I just feel that there's going to be a big blow up.
I bought Lilly some clothes yesterday. I've decided that with every pay check I'm going to get her an outfit so she'll have all new clothes when school starts back up and I won't have to scramble around trying to get money together to do it. I actually only took a $20 bill to the mall with me and was only going to get lunch. I was going to get a salad at Chik-fil-a, but there's a children's clothing store right there at the bottom of the escalator that goes up to the food court. The store was having a great sale. I bought Lilly 2 shirts for school and Zach a Fourth of July shirt and had $5 left over for lunch. Since the salad was over $6, I ended up going to Taco Bell. So now she has 3 shirts and one pair of shorts for back to school so far. I'm keeping them in my closet here at work and am only going to give them to her right before school.
My anniversary is 2 days away and I have no idea what to get hubby. I was hooked on the idea of going zip lining. That was something different we could do as a couple and not have to worry about anything else. I don't want anything. I don't have room for anything and it'll just be another thing I'll have to pack. I'd rather just have a nice day. No gifts. Maybe a nice dinner. Hell.. I'd be happy with tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I am surprising hubby with getting my hair done. I've had the same hair style since I was 3 except for 6 months back in 2007 when I had red streaks and side bangs. I want my hair cut about mid-back...maybe a little shorter with layers and caramel highlights. My hair right now goes down to my waist. I got it cut 2 years ago and donated 16 inches to Locks of Love. I want to donate again this time too.
On Thursday it'll be 4 years that we've been married. I'm so happy that we're still happy. Yeah, we have our moments and sometimes I want to punch him in his face, but I love him. I was honestly afraid to get married. I've seen so many marriages fail and end so badly, I didn't want to end up like that. I even told him about my fears just a few months before our wedding and he told me this.. these are his exact words, I'll never forget them, "If you keep setting yourself up for failure, you're going to fail. You have to change the way you look at your life and let yourself be happy." He made me cry. Every time I think I'm not good enough, I think of these words. I don't think I've ever told him that what he told me that night has stuck with me. I wonder if he even remembers saying that to me.

Fun times

I took Friday off to take the kids to visit my family. We got up early and got ready before we went to go pick Tony up. I dropped him off at my step dads house where Seth and Donavan were. Then I went to moms with my kids. I let them play in the creek. Zach had a blast but lilly was scared that her ties were going to get pinched.
After moms I went to my step dads to spend time with my brothers. Then we left and u took tony home before going home myself.
Nothing really happened at moms. She didn't preach at me. I tried to keep all topics about the kids.
I taught Zach how to flap his arms and say Bok Bok.
Saturday hubby and I took the kids to a carnival. They both rode on pints and petted goats and a llama. Zach lived the rides. There was one ride with a car that I had to pry him out of. He threw a fit. I think next year Lilly will be ready for the bigger rides. I thought she was ready this year but she didn't want to.
We went to grandmas to drop Lilly off to her father and she got a little sick. Corn dogs from a carnival was a bad idea. Both her and Zach got a bit suck. They didn't vomit but they had a bad tummy ache. Hubby even got a little sick from his cheese steak sandwich.
Sunday we ended up at my in laws.
Ok.... U ready? We are signing the contract to the house today. We came to a price that everyone agreed on and now it's time to move further. Our next step is to sign the contract so we can begin the process of trying to get a loan. We are pre approved but there's still a small chance we won't get it. During the time that we are waiting for our loan to go through, we have to get an appraisal done and the guy has to clean the house out. Woooohoooo!!
Enjoy pics.

Lilly's haircut

Lilly loves her hair now and now that it's shorter it doesn't take her forever to get ready in the morning. The majority of our morning was get brushing and crying over he hair but not anymore.
My birthday was ok. I was lazy at work and ate foods I really shouldn't have. We went out to Fridays for dinner with hubby parents. I got my bathroom scale that I wanted and hubby bought me a cheesecake. And soooo many people wished me happy birthday, thanks do much you guys.
Going to visit mom tomorrow, so there won't be any post tomorrow. I gotta have Lilly make some fathers day cards for grandpas.
We called to make an offer on the house yesterday. They are selling it for $140,000 and we offered $130,000 just to start out. The guy said he had some phone calls to make then he'd let us know. It's his mother in laws house and she's bedridden right now. He had to talk to her if she can, his wife and his brother in law about the price. Hopefully he'll call us back today. He said he doubts they'll go that low but we'll see. We can go up all the way, but what fun us that? We gotta try to get the house for as low as we can. Hopefully I'll post some good news tomorrow.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


Well.... Today's my birthday. Yep. I was actually going to stop there and post but I have more to say. As most of you already know, I'm not big on celebrating my birthday. I don't expect anything special today. It's just another day. I did stop and get a mocha this morning. That's my first treat to myself. My first break in my diet today. I am planning on an extra special day just for me on my anniversary. Yea, I'm gonna celebrate with hubby too but while he's at work, it's MY day. I'm taking the day off, taking kids to day care, gonna take a super long nap, eat junk food, rent a movie then go get my hair done. I don't think hubby is interested in zip lining anymore. I think he chickened out. I think he was expecting me to chicken out but I really want to do it. I'll get someone to go with me one day I know my uncle and my brother Chris had done it before, so they can go with me.
Lilly has a hair appointment today. She's getting it cut above her shoulders and layered. She's excited. She really hates brushing her hair because if all the tangles but if it's shorter it'll be easier. She also got sunburned real bad under her eyes yesterday while she was at the pool. I made sure to have a talk with the teachers today about her and sunscreen. I have to do it all the time. They should know. She didn't get burned anywhere else so that's good.
Not really sure what else to talk about. I have a lot to do at work today and I just kinda wish I would have stayed in bed.

Monday already?

Wow..... A lot happened.
Relay was great, the kids were great and had lots of fun. Time really seemed to fly this year. Lilly did some games and contests and jumped in the Jupiter jumped for a bit. She even tried out Zumba but said it was too hard. Zach danced his little butt off. He got in front of the stage where the band was playing and just jumped and wiggled. We stayed long enough to do the luminary ceremony, but we had to go. It was really late, Zach was tired.
Saturday I was going to get lillys hair cut after her game but every placed closed at 3 and her game started at 2 so there was no way. I'll get her scheduled for tomorrow. She did awesome in the game. She didn't strike out this time. She made 3 runs too. Zach even behaved during the game even though it was really hot. After the game we all went to Wendy's for a frosty and the coach gave all the kids medals.
The fire station was having their annal boot drive and hot dog sale saturday too. I took the kids there for lunch. The ladder truck was out spraying water for the kids to run through too.
Sunday I cleaned the house up real good. It looks better than its looked in a really long time. I didn't get to go to moms because my car was acting up and hubby wanted to look at it before I drive that far. I plan on taking Friday off to take the kids up there. After hubby got home from work we went to his moms house so he and his dad could work in my car and the kids played in a sprinkler. Zach was unsure about it at first and still wouldn't willingly get in the water after a while. I kept throwing balls in the water and hed go get them.
Tony called me last night and we talked for an hour an a half. I haven't talked to him like that in a long time. He got his first car but he can't drive it yet because he doesn't have his license and it's a stick shift and hasn't learned how to drive that kind yet. We talked about our parents, the past, his girlfriend, I got the real story behind Chris and everything that happened, we talked about when I raised him, our brothers, what he's going to do after he can drive, his disappointment in some people and so much more. It felt great to have a conversation like that with him.
Lilly's going dress shopping with her soon to be step mom today.
Yeah.... So here's some pictures in no particular order.

Friday, June 8, 2012


I can't post my pictures of WV today and I won't be able to update my smile blog because I accidently left my phone at home and I can't post pics on the computer.'re stuck with my boring ramblings.
I had another odd dream last night. I swear, if its not the end of the world, its dreams about me being late to work. I dreamt that I woke up and it was still dark out, like usual. I got up and ready and I had to hitch a ride with some lady I don't know for some reason. There was a road block, so we had to go around. Halfway to work I look at the clock and see that its 11:00 am and I am horribly late to work. I then look in the back of the car and wonder where Zach is. I call hubby  on my phone and ask him if he picked him up and he said no so I start yelling at the lady to turn around so I can get my baby and she pulls over on the side of the road and parks to talk on her phone. I woke up after that and felt so bad for forgetting Zach.
The other dream I had, someone was trying to kill me. I was hiding out in the mall.... not any of the malls I've been to, this is the mall I only go to in my dreams. You all must think I'm crazy for saying that. That I visit the same places in my dreams, but I've never really been to them. It is weird, I admit. Do any of you do that? I can't be the only one.
Zach slept great. He only got up once and went right back to sleep. Then I swear he knew I was dreaming about forgetting him and he woke me up 5 minutes before my alarm went off.
I feel lost without my phone. I keep trying to reach for it to so something. Its been a long time since I forgot my phone. You just watch. Now that I don't have it, I'll end up with a hundred texts and missed calls. On any other day, I hardly have any contact with other people.
I got to hang out with my bff yesterday. We didn't really do much. I took her to go see the house we are trying to get. She's been back in WV for quite a while now, and we've only hung out twice.
RELAY IS TODAY!!! I just now donated the money for my luminaries. I got 4. I let the kids do one by themselves and I did one for my grandma and one for Mary-my friend that died of lung cancer a couple years ago. I still haven't been to her grave. I feel so bad about it. Maybe I'll get the chance Sunday while I'm up that way. I'm taking half a day today so I can have enough time to get everything packed and the kids ready. I don't know how long we'll stay. Hubby has to work tomorrow and Lilly has a game. I guess it depends on how long Zach can go. One of these years, I'd love to be able to stay the entire time. It goes from 6 in the evening to 8 in the morning.  I usually leave around 11 at night.
I was making plans to take the kids to a family night with inflatables and a movie, but the city isn't having it this weekend. We can't go next weekend because Lilly goes to her father's. Hopefully we can go soon. They are doing it all summer.
My shoulder hurts today from my massage. It feels like I have a bruise right where the lady rubbed out that big knot. It kind of hurts to move my right shoulder now.
I'm getting pumped!! Any of you that follow me on Twitter will get to see Relay as it goes. I'll try to post pics on there as we go along. But if you don't follow me on Twitter, you can see all the fun on here Monday.... as long as I remember my phone.

Relay's tomorrow!

I was really going to post early this morning, but I've been crazy busy. All except the for the free massage I got and then the sermon mom preached to me because she said I'm not living right since I don't go to church. She always does this to me when she starts to go to church again. She'll stop in a month or two, then a year or so later, she'll be preching to me again. I told her about my end of the world dream where I couldn't find Lilly and she said, "You know, when the time comes for the world to end all the kids and Christains will be taken away and all the non-Chirstains will be left to fend for themselves." I said, "Ok?" "Well that you'll be without Lilly and Zach." I said, "No, I wouldn't. I'm a Christain, I'll be with them." "No you won't. You're not a Christain. You don't live your life right." "What's that supposed to mean Mom?" "You don't go to church." "Mom, you don't have to go to church to be a Christian. You just have to believe and worship. Its not about going to church. God is everywhere, so he is wherever you are." Then she says, "Do you know what it feels like to know that if the world does end soon, all my kids will be left here on Earth to die off and I'll be sitting peacefully with God." I then changed the subject to my other dream with the orange soda. She drives me crazy sometimes. She'll get like this every once in a while. Tell me I'm a bad person or a bad mom and that I'm going to hell and all this stuff. I'm not, I'm not and nope, I'm still not. She talks about me not taking my kids to church. No, I don't, but Lilly knows all about God and we talk about Him and everything. She knows. When Zach gets old enough, he will too, but I just choose not to go to church. The day care they are in does a little bit of Bible teachings, too. I didn't tell Mom that. I didn't want her to get mad about that for some reason.
Ok... time to get off this subject.
Tomorrow is Relay and I can't be more excited. I tried to tell some people about it and get them to come, but I doubt any of them will show up. I'll post pics and everything about it on Monday.
Saturday Lilly has a game and we were going to do a fun night that the city holds with Jupiter Jumps and an outside movie. Sunday I was going to visit mom, even though she's going to preach and shake the Bible at me, I'm still going. There's also going to be a petting zoo down at one of the stores that day. So, I'll take the kids to that. The petting zoo is traveling, so if for some reason I don't go to mom's, we'll still catch the zoo another time.
My car started messing up a little this morning. I think the transmission is trying to go out. Great. Just another thing to worry about.
Hubby called the guy that's selling the house and he's flying out of town until Tuesday, so we're going to get to sit down with him and discuss numbers on Wednesday or Thursday. so...WOOOO! At least its a step forward.
The massage therapist, as soon as she touched my shoulders said, "Oh!" I said what then she said, "You're really tensed and knotted up especially on your right side." I told her that's the side I carry my baby and she started rubbing and gets that pesky knot out of my shoulder that's been there forever. Then as she moves down my back, she hits another knot, but I laugh because it tickles, so she left that one alone. I felt so good after. It was my first real massage. She was telling me foods to avoid to help me not get migraines. Cheese-no problem. Wine-no problem. Beer-no problem. Anything pickled-WHAT? Nope I can't do that. She gave me the weirdest look then laughed at me. Glad I could amuse you, lady. No, she was great.
Oh, also going to get Lilly's hair cut this weekend, unless softball schedules some games that was cancled, but I don't think they will. She'll be happy to get it chopped off. I'll be sure to post a pic on here.

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Sleep last night was a little better, not great. I was up late by my own fault. I was texting an old friend, inviting her to Relay and we got to talking about a bunch of stuff. Zach got up twice. I ended up falling asleep on the couch with him at 4:30 and my alarm from the bedroom woke me up at 5:30.
I forgot to fill you in on my brother Seth. The day he was supposed to move in with mom didn't happen. He just stayed at home. I don't remember what is reason was. A week later he got in a fight with his dad and walked out and now lives with Jeff, my second ex step dad. He still might move in with mom. Mom took him to get his clothes and stuff and they thought his dad would throw a fit. Turns out he didn't he said that Seth is almost 18 and is old enough to make his own decisions. We were worried about nothing. I'm going up there to visit on Sunday.
I got my car back last night. After almost 2 weeks if not driving, it felt weird this morning when u hopped in the drivers seat. So glad it's back. Not having a car when you have. Job and kids and trying to do stuff for hubby's birthday is hard.
Zach had learned something new. When it's time to change his diaper all I have to do is tell him it's time and he goes over to our usual spot in the floor beside where I keep the diapers, and lays down for me. It really helps out a lot. I don't have to fight with him anymore.
Lilly's going out for Japanese food today for lunch with the day care and then they are headed to a pool. She's going to have so much fun.
Maybe I'll start updating this blog later in the day. Give myself time to wake up. I'm going cross eyed trying to type on my phone and I haven't even had my coffee yet. My luck though, I'll forget everything and end up with blank pages.
Work is offering free ten minute massages this week. A massage therapy place has accounts here and I guess they are so pleased with our service, they are coming in to do this for us. I'm very excited. I've never had a massage before. I can barely get hubby to rub my feet. I got the latest possible day, which is tomorrow. I claimed the slot right before lunch, so i can go from massage to lunch instead if massage then back to work. I'm considering this my birthday present to myself.

Not much, you?

I applied to a job yesterday at a place I've already worked. I worked in the warehouse but applied for an office job. I left on good terms but I might be asking for too much money. We will see I guess. I'm kind of excited actually. This place is closer to home and I don't have to pay parking.
My car should be finished today. No more hitching a ride with hubby. No more rushing in the morning.
Relay is Friday I can't believe that it's here already. It doesn't seem like a year has passed yet. I get to take Lilly this year. I haven't had her for Relay since I started. I really wish I could get my grandma to go. She could use the extra support with her battle against cancer. I think if she went and saw everyone working toward a cure and all the survivors that come, it would help her out a lot. She won't come though because it's at night.
Hubby didn't get a chance to call about the house yesterday. I have all the papers drawn up and ready. We don't think the house is cleaned out yet. The guy said he was going to clean it out in the middle of May, but it's June now. Part of me thinks he doesn't really want to sell the house and that we should start looking other places. I hope hubby calls today. I can't stop thinking about it. I don't have the guys number or I would call.

Lilly's back

Blogger is messing up on me again. I wrote a big long this and now it's gone. I will write it again but don't expect it to be great.
Hubby's bday was Friday. I had to bum a ride to go get him some cake during work. I had already bought his gift from the mall a few days ago. I got him a light up controller for his PS3. He seemed excited until he found out the layout if the controller is a little different. We went out to eat with his parents an I got him a free desert without anyone singing to him.
Hubby getting older got me thinking. My 26 birthday is just 9 days away. I'm pretty happy with my life. I have two beautiful kids who are happy, healthy and smart. I have a wonderful husband who loves me. U have a decent job, even though I don't like my job, at least I have one. We have a roof over our heads, even though it's a tiny roof. This time next year I plan on having a house, a better job, and be 35 pounds lighter.
Sunday we went to hubby's sisters house for a cookout. I was in the back yard playing with the kids. I pitched a ball to Lilly an she hit it over the fence. I went inside to get hubby to go get it and Lilly comes I crying saying the other kid said she was dead for hitting it over the fence. She was so upset. I tried to fix it and have him apologize. I didn't want her to always associate a great hit with something bad.
Ok... I wrote way more and it was way better. Here's pics of kids. I finally have Zach milk in his cereal and he ate two bowls. Lilly got to ride her scooter.

Pics of WV 4

Here are a few pics from Beckley, WV. I know I've already put that pic of Zach up but it's in Beckley and I really like that pic.
