About Me

I am a single mother of two wonderful girls! Life is such a roller coaster so I figured I would blog about things that happen day to day. I hope you will come on the journey with me!

Sorry took so long


Sorry I sort of disappeared for a bit.. things have been busy. So let's see.. what is new..

The dog and cat finally get along :)

I got my first tattoo.. The bigger butterfly symbolizes me and the three smaller ones symbolize my three girls.

My 8 month old went to Chuck E Cheese for the first time..

Today was a sad day.. Around 10am I get a text from my sister saying my dog hurt himself and needs surgery. I am about to go into a 2 hour meeting so I quickly call to see what is going on. She tells me that he cut his foot really badly and she already has dropped him off at the vet. I go to my meeting and when we break for a bit I call and see how things are going. He cut his foot down to the tendon and is in surgery. So I go back to my meeting and when I am finished with that I call my mom. He is doing fine, out of surgery and can be picked up later. She thinks he got it caught on the fence while barking at the neighbor dog like he always does. Well when I get home I see there is this metal stuff under the rock river by the fence which he may have sliced it on. Either way I am just glad he is ok! My sister said there was a lot of blood when he came in and didn't know what to do. Thank goodness she acted quickly! He is home and doing ok. Droopy and not himself but ok. Has to wear the "collar of shame" so that he will not lick or try and get the bandage off. Have to take him back in a week to get the bandage off and see if the stitches can come out yet. He can't run around for a week.. I think he might go crazy :) My poor baby!!!!

Work is keeping me busy. Loving volleyball every tuesday night. My family is back from vacation :) I think that is about it for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Summer :)

Hello all,

So today my daughter decided to put on some glasses at the store.. she decided that she wanted to get them.. Doesn't she just look so cute :)

The cross-eyed cat Odo has decided he likes to sit in the sink. So funny!

The other day my big dog (who thinks he is little) wanted to play tug a war with my sisters smaller dog. Well usually the smaller one doesn't want to play, I think he is a bit intimidated.. well this time they decided to give it a try.. it was so adorable! See for yourself :)
My two girls are doing great! They are both enjoying daycare while I work. We went bowling this past weekend.. had a great time! My 8 month old slept the entire time which let me spend more time with my 7 year old. So that was nice :)
Well that is about all that is new with me.. I will keep you posted!! :)

Hello Again!

Hi everyone. Sorry I have not updated in a while. Been a little busy. Loving work still... :) Loving volleyball!!!! SOOOOOOO much fun!

So my little 7 month old gets bigger everyday. She likes going to daycare and playing with the other babies. The look she gets on her face when I come in to pick her up is priceless! She gets so excited... it makes me feel so good.

My 7 yr old didn't want to travel with my family again this time... until they were getting in the car to go. Then all the sudden she wanted to go.. kids. haha

Today we played LIFE.. she totally beat me! She was very proud :)

Fireworks are tomorrow.. not realy sure if we are going to go somewhere and watch them yet. Not too into crowded places and not being able to move much.

I will try and write more each week so that you have something new to read every so often :)

Thanks for following me!

OMG What is that!


Sorry I have not updated in a while. Working takes up a lot of my time :) but I love it!!!

So the other day I was holding my 7 month old in the rocking chair while we were all watching tv. My sister goes.. "her diaper is falling off". Well it was, one side had come undone.. little did I know that she was poopy!! AAAAAAAhhhhhh! It got on my shirt and pants! It was quite a mess...

Yesterday we had a Pirate themed Father's Day. We all dressed up and had a great time! My 7 month old was such a good sport. We put a mustache on her, a bandana, pirate hat, eye patch.. she didn't really mind any of it(except when I took the mustache off because it was sticky).

Today my 7 year old starts her week of Zoo camp. She is excited but being a whiney baby right now. I think she is still tired... hopefully she will be better when she gets to camp.

Today my 7 year old and I had mother daughter time. We went and got our nails done. This was the first time for both of us to get a pedicure. I got a full set and she got her nails painted. She chose a bright pink color with a flower on her thumbs and big toes. I got a pink color on my toes and white tips on my nails. She loved having her feet in the water, she said it felt like she had socks on.. ha ha. When they were massaging her feet it tickled her and she kept giggling. It was very cute. :) We both had a great time! Before they were even done she turns to me and says "we must do this again soon". Then after we left she tells me we should do this every month. Kids have no idea how much things cost.. ha ha. It was a great time together! Now she is off playing dress up :)

So today was my first day back in the work force. It went very well and I already love my job! It is similiar to all my other jobs and the people are so nice! I am learning the ropes and so far so good :)

Today my 6 month old is now 7 months old :) and went to daycare for the first time. She was a little fussy in the morning but she was most likely just tired because she is not used to getting up so early. They ended up having a fire drill today. What they do is stick 3 babies to a crib and roll them outside. Well they put mine with a 3 month old and my daughter decided it would be fun to suck on the other babies hand instead of her own for a bit.. haha. Everything goes in the mouth these days!!! When I picked her up she was in an exosaucer and was having a great time. I am so glad that she did ok being away from me, I was worried she was going to cry most of the time. This morning while getting things ready I was almost in tears. Not because I was starting a new job but because my little baby was going to be in a new place and away from me. I am so used to her being by my side it was hard. I knew she would be ok and she was! They love her there already just like they loved my 7 year old when she went there :) I love this daycare and the people in it!

When we got home my 7 year old ran up to me and latched on telling me how much she missed me. My sister said she was asking when I would be home already at around 10 this morning.. ha ha. I said to her you were in school and didn't miss me.. why now? She just held on to me :) It is nice to know my babies love me and miss me when I am gone!

So I have joined a club volleyball team. It starts in a few weeks so I had to start working out since I am so out of shape! I bought a volleyball the other day and have started playing against the barn wall. My arms and abs are sore from just two days so far! My poor muscles are so used to doing nothing.. haha. I decided that I would start doing laps in the pool for exercise as well as walking in the evening. I did some laps a little while ago but now I am a little dizzy. Not really sure why that is.. I am assuming it is because my body is not used to physical activity. I checked my blood pressure and it was fine, I checked my blood sugar and it was fine. The only other thing I can think of is perhaps my iron is low. I really need to drink some more water and less diet coke :) I am probably going to go walking tonight when it cools down a little bit. I can't wait to be in better shape and it will also make me feel better. Too much sitting around doing nothing for toooooo long!

I start my job tomorrow and I am soo excited! I can't wait to start working again. It will be so nice! My 6 month old will be starting daycare. I am sure she is going to love it! She will get to be around other babies which she has not experienced. She has only been around older kids so I think it will be good for her. Hopefully she will be ok with my not being there though. We will see...
