Mind Boggling

Headache is thumping but, a quick little update… & to clear my head.

House is almost done getting fixed–the drain is in the driveway so the garage and basement won’t flood again. The handyman is here to fix ALOT of stuff around the house–two drawers, siding outside, a door stop, a bunch of stuff downstairs, the fan and light above the stove–let’s just say, I am definitely not jealous.

Bought hubby a ticket to go see Paramore–my sister & her hubby are going to it as well so, mommy & the boys get a night to themselves. Going to clean up the house, bathe the boys, bedtime, dishes, and shower–hoping that will take most of the night. But, if not, I always have this lovely place or some Madden to play.

Got a writing job yesterday. Wrote an article last night on a bunch of stuff I knew nothing about until I wrote it. Got another article sent to me this morning and I got it written up this morning/afternoon and it’s one it’s way to going to the client.

Sister made PB cookies last night so, I’ve been munching on those–definitely takes me back to our childhood days–the good times. Not the times when I was a little terrorist to her. I like to pretend that those days never existed–even though my brother in law is here to snap me back to reality sometimes.

Been working on a budget and bills that we’re going to pay off. It’s an exciting thought when we look at payoff our debts–our car (my mom bought it for us), student loans (we still have over $30,000 but, we’re about to pay off one of my hubby’s), pay back my sister and brother in law, pay off the credit card, and a couple others. & then we’ll be back to saving money–and we have awesome roommates this time. The last few roommates we had when we were married… We ate through over $3,000 in savings and the credit card–it was depressing. When we started getting close to being able to pay it off and caught up again, I got laid off. So, we’re back to being the rockstar couple we are.

Bigger news–Hubby quit WoW a couple weekends ago. We haven’t had much of the internet but, he decided the night that he went to the concert with my brother in law. We’ve been doing a lot better with each other. We’re happier as a couple. We are able to do more as a family. The boys get to play with him more. I get to see him more. We actually go to bed around the same time. He’s not exhausted when he goes to work. He’s around and I love it! It’s a happy day!

Well, time to go find the load of laundry waiting for me in the dryer, do some dishes, and probably find some caffeine–got another 5-7 hours to be awake and I am already wiped out from today.

Happy Tuesday–thinking about finding a Halloween craft to do with the boys shortly.

What kind of crafts do you do around this time? What kinds of food are appealing to you? You got a craving?

Sick Sickie

Ugh–well, at it again–getting sick now that we are here and finally settling down. Other than the 5 AM mornings, things are going alright. Hubby is still trying to find a job so, it’s stressful & I am going to start babysitting another little boy (including our 3 kids) who is having trouble here because (WTF) the daycares here don’t do timeouts or anything. They say no but, hardly enforce it at all so, I will possibly be babysitting my sister’s friend/co-worker’s child. Just praying that I am scarier than him mom because he doesn’t listen to her half the time–I feel horrible for her because our kiddos were like that too.

L is in bootcamp for sharing things. And A is in bootcamp for throwing things so, it’s going to be one of those ugh days. Plus, Z is not in a good mood–he’s been fussy all week so, just praying things go a Β little more smoothly.

Stayed up too late watching wrestling last night but, the boys slept in a little bit today so, praying that I get a nap too. πŸ˜€

Well, time for some more food, before I have 2 more Fantasy Football Drafts this morning–if you’re in a league & still need people, let me know. πŸ™‚ I am going to dive head first into this thing & hopefully learn some stuff & make some friends. πŸ˜€

Tootles for now–food, drafts, play with kiddos, lunch, nap… And maybe the park again today. πŸ˜€


And SURPRISE to me this week–I need to go get tested for some health issues… :S
