For My Kids

I love them with everything in me.
I would die for them.
That pretty much sums it up
(I would post more but I have a lot on my mind.. )

Thankful Thursday

I am very thankful for REAL friends.
Friends that will not stab you in the back..
Friends that are ALWAYS there no matter what.
The friends that tell you how they REALLY feel.. not just what they think you want to hear..
The friends that are there to laugh with, cry with, and share things with.
I don't need people in my life to bring me down.. only those who help build me up.
To them I am greatful..thank you.

i AM ok

I can make it on my own.

I can take all challenges with stride.

I will make smart decisions that are best for my family.

I will block others out that are unhealthy for me.

I will have a clear mind.

Above all, I will be true to my husband and my children.

Ten Things Tuesday

I am trying to blog everyday.. doesn't always happen.. so here is my list for yesterday..

Ten Things I could TOTALLY live without..

1~ DRAMA... keep it to yourself. I have more important things to do than deal with ignorance.

2~ LIARS... why are you wasting your time? tell me the truth..lying leads to annoyance number one

3~ DRUGS.. don't do em. don't want to.

4~GUNS..hate them...which doesn't make sense considering my husband is in the army..but I still hate them.

5~BILL COLLECTORS.. if I couldn't pay you in the first place what makes you think I can pay you now.. LEAVE ME ALONE.. you want my kidney? cuz that's about all I have worth a crap.

6~DIRTY LOOKS... If you have a problem with me enough to give me a dirty look.. say it to my face. Yes I am young. Yes I have children... but I am probably a better mom than you will ever be!

7~DISRESPECT.. if you come in my house, and it's clean, pick up after yourself. this is not a hotel with a maid service..

8~TELEVANGILISTS (sp?).. you are not God. you can not heal people by smacking them in the forehead..

9~COMMERCIALS... I want to personally thank the person who invented DVR and tv show fast forwarding. you are my hero.. and the people who target my 4 year old son so that when we go to the store he wants the most expensive food and toys..

10~CRAPPY WEATHER.. it ruins plans.. makes me scared to drive...floods my yard.. etc.

Memory Monday

One of my favorite memories of Carter....
One of the best days of my life, October 26th 2006... the day he was born..
I went to the doctor's that morning. He had already told me to pack my bags just in case. I was 4 cm dialated without being in labor.. he wanted out! LoL. So he said he was going to induce me.. 13 days before my due date.
So we go to the hospital, they hook me up.. and the labor starts almost instantly. I get my epidural.. they break my water... I'm only about 6 cm by this time... not feeling anything! woohoo!
I tell everyone that was there to go home it would be a while.. told my sister not to rush from work..
20 minutes later they checked me and I was 10 cm!! I started balling.. "I'm not ready! I wanted to take a nap!" lol..
so I started pushing.. 9:19 pm he was born. 7 lbs 14 oz. 20.5 inches big fatty man. my chunky monkey. my chunk a monk... the love of my life.. what an amazing feeling it was to hold him in my arms for the first time..
