I'm done with tornadoes and it is only MAY..... for real . Today we had to camp in the basement.(because I am really paranoid) for like 20 minutes...and while we were down there.Hayden and Gage were shaking there butt(and I mean full out booty bouncing) in my was funny but honestly I have been so stressed about the damn storms that I have stomach and head i just kinda looked at them blankly...But since I had enough warning, I had a little "party pack" for the basement..books, computer,drinks,snacks blanket pillows cell phone.. etc... which made it much more appealing to be in a dark smelly basement...
So that is how the day went...completly wasted ...from waiting on storms and being scared of the storm , worrying about my husband who has to climb poles for his cable job... geez .
and i will have a better post soon right now I have the brain blahs.

Gages Birthday

Today is Gage's Birthday....The big "8"...and let me tell you a little about Gage....His birth was easy and I took it as a sign of " hey this kid is going to be easy going, calm and well just easy.....hahahhahhahha...yeah that is all I can do now ..just ...laugh. he is complicated a brooding and more hormonal than a teenager....But I'll give this to him..he is sensitive, loving, and all around a good kid....I have noticed lately the seriousness in his face like he is really thinking about things....and I hate to admit it but he is alot like me at that age ..dramatic ultra sensative..but he is a good helper when he is in the mood to help....I love my Gage and he makes me laugh!!! are a few pics from his Birthday
opening presents

He was not happy....we always give the big present last..needless to say he wasn't impressed

the look of relief

the cake!!!

I am so worn out..I spent the ENTIRE day cleaning, cleaning cleaning..and I havent started spring cleaning...I am starving..and my feet hurt.....but at least tonight after the supper dishes are done ..I am doing absolutly nothing..
I finally got zumba for the wii...and let me tell you real...I did it the other day and man I am really surprised at the cardio intensity..and of course while I was trying it out..everybody was sitting on the couch watching me completely humiliate my self while trying to limber up my body to do these sexy moves...note to self ...the next time I do this...wait until my husband goes to work and the kids are occupied with something else....and I say this because I am pretty sure I heard snickering OVER the loud zumba music..thanks for the encouraging guffaws guys....nooo but seriously it had to be pretty funny.......
and now I am off to eat my fabulous beef and barley soup.....

Cart Nazi ( Crazy bitches allowed to use a cart)

I dont like to complain(my husband would disagree) but what it it with women ages 30-55, that have no children, act like total heifers at the supermarket?....for the hundreth time I was strolling through walmart with the kids and some bitch almost runs over my kid....and I dont mean she just was distracted and accidentally bumped him...I am talking she was going full steam ahead, eyes locked on my child. She knew what she was doing. If I had not yanked Hayden out in the last split second he would have been gonner...what the hell???? Here's the thing, my kids in general behave when I take them to the store. He wasn't running around acting crazy he was walking obediantly by the cart...So being the nice person that I was I said loud enough for her to hear.... Hayden lets get out of her way...she is obviously more important than us....and she actually gave me a dirty look and huffed....freakin huffed at me.....soooooooooooo...I went about my business and aha..there she was right by the snooty tea selection....I walked as close as I possibly could without being obvious and bumped her cart...thats right people I bumped her cart and I just dared her with the look in my eye to say WORD ONE to me....people are so rude...I hate that I stooped to a juvenile level but it actually felt kind of good......
Don't mess with the bull....or you WILL get the horns!!!

Just a little help....I'm not asking for much

As a mother of three I am constantly making doctor appointments.Now as a mother I expect to have to do this. I dont have a problem with negotioating the best time for the appointment not to mention the multiple appointments on the same day..What I dont however like is when we get to the appointments...
First off I have to get all the kids organized just minutes before we leave.I happen to know if you get your kids ready even just 5 minutes to early you are doomed...somehow, someway , my kids will find a way to either A. get themselves dirty. B. get your clothes dirty or C. everyone will have to have a complete wardrobe change. This will make you in teh very least on time for you appointment ( you know the stupid policy I am talking about ,They want you there 15 minutes early only to make you wait an extra 45 by the time you actually see the doctor, dentist or whoever you look like a a mental patient on teh verge of REALLY loosing your mind)
Next there is the car ride,I wont even go into the horrible details of my last car ride to an appointment.All I have to say is it involved french fries, a whiny brat and a mother ready to drive her car off the nearest bridge.
You get to the appointment as the secretary DOES NOT ACKOWLEDGE the fact that you are seriously in need of a quick effecient appointment. I mean seriously where do half of these secretaries come from??? There is one in particular thatI cant stand she is very aloof, if you have a question she cannot answer it with out saying the word "UMMMMMM" which by the way is one of my pet peeves If you are over the age of 18 learn to talk especially if you are in a proffesional business. and did I mention her voice..completely nasel, and whiny and she talks really loud ...super freakin annoying.......
and to the worst part of these appontment.....THE WAITING ROOM....and I will have to say this drives me a little bit more nuts than it does other people....and here is why...My daughter is autistic and stimms, she runs around and vocalizes....and people are giving me the look, hardcore... I mean if I realize a child has special needs and isnt doing all these things, not to be annoying or because she is bad, but because she just cant help it.....Now I have a problem when people do this and I will admit my feelings get hurt for my daughter....people dont realize it but her feelings can get hurt to ..she understands way more than they think....It actually made me so mad that I actually straight forward had to ask a woman what the f**k her problem was and how would she like to be autistic....this may not have been the best way to handle the situation..but I was pushed and I was PMS ing majorly so if I embarrased her GOOD adults should be ashamed of themselves when they act like that.....and to tell the truth...I cried when I got home for a long time cause I realized that that woman probably had the worst opinion of me..and that is not how I want to be seen.
What prompted this blog was Gages appointment at the orthodontist...he is having an appliance put in and it is going to be a long I am mentally preparing myself for everything that goes along with it.... I had also asked Mark to take a sick day so I just didnt have to deal with it, and the answer was no....Just so everybody knows The Last Job Mark had, he held for 13 years and almost never took a sick day ..and the most recent job he has held for almost 3 years and has only had to take off 2 days.....2DAYS people...he has the best work ethic..and I like that about him I really do he is dedicated but there are times where I just cant deal with the constant back and forth and I need a little bit of a break...IF that means I am weak..then fine I'm weak but dammit I dont ask for much....I am on my job 24/7 and have not takin a break for almost 10 years...and I really need one.....
I know most SAHM will feel me on this...and it is always nice when you can just let your responsibilities go for just a few hours

I will be posting some pics of THE APPLIANCE later to day..stay tuned(oh yeah it is suppose to glow in the dark)

Neverending ....

I did have a good idea for a post but that went all to soon as I sat down my oldest decids he is going to practice what he is best at...freaking annoying the hell out of me...and he is reading this as I type....It all started with him asking if he could play the wii, I politly told him no BECAUSE he already played his DS for an hour (oh he just corrected is DSL) sheesh I am some sort of moron...anywhooooo.Now he is perched at my shoulder asking "caniplaywii,caniplaywii,caniplaywii" if this isnt annoying enough he is growling and breathing on me... Just so everybody knows I only allow my kids 1HOUR of video time PERIOD!!!! be it wii, PS3, or DSL...1 hour only...I am seriously abourt ready to elbow this kid......I cant concentrate anymore...I'll be back

IN A Pre- Spring Rut.

Has anybody else looked at their laundry pile, dirty toilet, or unswept floor for the umpeenth time and thought...I know I cleaned this yesterday? I swear I am in a time warp...For example not more than 2 days ago I had ALL of the laundry done...and I was pretty excited for myself cause that would mean more free time to do the catch up work that kind of gets shoved in a corner until I can finally get to it...Now here it is Friday..and there is at least oh I'd guesstimate 7 loads downstairs.....freakin 7 loads in 2 days !?!?!?!..Now I dont know how this happens or why but it is really starting to bug me....and I was beggining to wonder what would happen If i decided to go on strike???...It would be pretty damn stinky...
Here's to happy cleaning

Missing Camera, Crazy Hair...and dogs that are getting on my last nerve.(and one really horny yowling cat)

This is how Amaya has been waking up for the last couple months...a little rough looking...I mean we all don't look top notch when we roll out of bed, but damn she looks like she has been to war with the pillow...and I am beginning to suspect that her stuffed animals are a bad influence also( stuffed animalpeer pressure is high stakes these days)...It seems a result of all this rough sleeping has taken a disastorous toll on her hair..I mean I cant get a brush through it...Now people I have tried everything under the sun, detangler,deep conditioning, braiding before bed, I have even considered silk pillow cases and then quickly pulled myself out of that little fantasy when i realized the price was beyond crazy..iksnay on that idea... Seriously I have been actually pulling hunks of hair out of her head because the ratting is so bad....and I really take time brushing (like over 30 min on some days) and I really dont want to cut her hair...because I just think younger girls should have a little length to their hair...then about the age of 10 or so do what ever....I have been really at a loss ..I mean I was to the point of just saying screw it and let her have dreds.......then the miracle happened...Infusiam 23 ...I know ..I couldnt believe it... As I was browsing the outlandish amount of choices in the hair supply isle at Wal-Mart (which by the way was total hel cause their was some dumb heifer behind me that kept making the clicking noise with her tonge and deep sighing and shifting her weight, which at one point I just circled around cause I was ready to punch her in the face) So we picked up the conditioner and the leave in conditionr and viola' SILKY MANAGABLE LOCKS....finally.
I lost my camera and threatened everybody's life looking for it, I have a bad temper but it has simmered a little over the years (out of complete neccesity)...But I'll be honest I have very few possesions that are just a mother I have given up ever looking nice, owning something over 200 dollars, or expecting my house to stay clean for more than an hour.....But dammit my camera dissapeared and I was livid....We finally found it....and I'll have to say I am a little embarrased about my tirade , the camera was in my top dresser drawer....where I put keep it away ..from my yay just consider me red as a tomato right about now.
Now onto the dogs and the HORNY cat...and I do mean Horny...that cat never shuts up...for the past month I have been listening to his sorrowful song and I really am at my wits end...we do not have the money for the "BIG SNIP" right now so we just have to deal with it....Which I'll have to admit it has gotten a tiny bit better since he got loose the other night( we had no knowledge of his little rendevous till we got home from the strore, we stepped out on the back porch for a minute and who do we see slinking up to the porch? the Horny Cat) and he did have a certain swagger to his walk if you know what I mean......So now I am guessing all the frisky kitties out there are expecting... geez my cat is such a stud....I hope he enjoyed it while he could soon as our tax check come in ....he is done for
....and now on to the dumb dogs....I love them but I just can't handle the constant mess making....precious has decided that she doesnt need to bother with that whole"gong to the bathroom outside" thing any more and weenie, well he is old, he chews on himself all the time, he farts and by farts I mean he has the ass of death, really I am not kidding... and now his new thing is he is completely unable to jusmp on the bed at bedtime so I have to lug his fat ass on the bed and throw my back out every night....poor thing....he is getting up their and I really do love him....but some how when he goes out to pee he gets a wild hair and will crawl under the fence and just book down the alley at 50 miles an hour
.....for some reason I think if he is able to run he should be able to jusmp...but who am I to say...I'm not a vet.....anywho this is rather long winded so I am just gonna let it go and just go with the flow...leaving you with a picture or 2 of the dogs

I hate static electricity...which of course means my kids think it is the greatest thing ever...At night when I am laying in bed and see the little lightning bolts every time I move I want to scream. Mostly it just makes me uncomfortable irratable and last but not least murderous. I know it sounds a little extreme but I honestly just Cannot function when everything is sticking and zapping...and I really hate when someone shuffles their feet across carpet then pokes me with their charged finger...the next time someone does that they will be missing a I am hoping everyone takes heed. How do you get rid of it and why all of a sudden does my house seem abnormaly charged?? Usually once or twice a year I notice it but we have had way to much this year AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...there now I feel better.
In an update on the resolutions...I do NOT get up and cook breakfast for Mark(only because he told me I didnt have to) Still taking my vitamins, W have ate out only 4 times since the new year...I have lost almost 30lbs and am feeling pretty good....I cant notice the loss at all but thats ok cause I know it isnt there anymore

This is what happens....

When your heating element in your oven goes out.   Seriously for a person that cooks all the time, something like this could throw you into seizures, cold sweats anxiety attack and anything else bad you can think of...
   Yesterday I was reheating a meatloaf that I had made the day before due to our busy schedule.  I had to make 2 suppers in one night to prevent chaos the next night....i was walking past the ove about 20 min after I put the loaf in and saw a bright light, instantly knowing something was wrong cause the lightbulb burned out about 4 yrs ago.  The light was so bright it was like welding light(blinding) I turn the oven off call Mark and tell him I think the oven is going to blow up.  we figure out the element is going bad and my plans of German chocolate cake are twarted.  but it all turns out good  we were in luck a business here in town had a replacement element and we are cooking again.....Cake is in the oven as we speak...
  Also totaly off subject here but does anyone else get sick of the fact that commercial are so much louder than tv shows...I am really going to shoot my tv the next time I have my tv at a comfortable volume and then all of a sudden I get my eardrums blasted to the point of bleeding during a commercial...there should be a law against this

Whats my sign???

Why did they change the astrological signs....I mean would it really have hurt anything for those people in minnesota just to keep their mouths shut?....Now instead of being a Sagitarious I am now an Ophiuchus.....what the hell???? So now I am a serpant Slayer instead of the Archer?
I guess whatever....of course the hardcore believers are all up in arms and saying that these findings are wrong....I like to read my horoscope, but I am not going to be such an extremist that I let it ruin my day.  But I'll have to admit I think that the new sign I have much better describes my personality (generalized it may be) that the Sagitarious....Anywho...I hope everyone is having a great new year and possibly still following their resolutions....I have kept mine to a  point..we have ate out twice, I still havent found anything for me to have "fun"with that doesnt include my  kids...lets see, I have made Mark breakfast maybe 3 times and I am taking my vitamins all in all I am doing ok with this.  I have also joined the Dr. Oz  11 week thing.,.pretty cool it helps you keep track of your calories tells you how many calories you burned what type of excercise is good for your body type...blah blah blah.   I like it cause I am too lazy to count calories. I wonder if I lose like 60 or 70 lbs Mark will let me get a boob job and tummy tuck???  (If the money were available that is!)

See Mommy ..He won't share......SEEEEEE!

These are the words I heard this morning from my middle child as I tried to have a relaxed Saturday morning, and honestly it was enough to make me want to throw him out in the snow and shut the door. I didnt feel this way because he was whining or the fact that he said that particular sentence about 40 times in the last 10 minutes....It is the way he is saying it...with an extremly determined (your so stupid for ignoring me) nasally,loud. But as I am typing he has moved on to saying "my foot is freezing and it's going to fall off !!!!" So I kindly suggest (while holding back the urge to tell him how I really feel) going upstairs and getting his fleece blanket he got from Santa.  Just guess the response I got...(If I had video I would post it  because honestly it would be an absolute hit un Youtube) he is flailing around doing circles on the floor saying "I cant walk upstairs because my foot is broken".   Lets all kep in mind that said foot is the one he is using to propel himself in circles.   I mean really?   Does anybody sympathize with me on this??  and belive me it will go on late into the  morning.  I love the kid dearly but he drives me absolutly bonkers....He knows exactly what buttons to push and how hard to push them before I absolutly lose it. I actually think he likes it too....He probably sits upstairs in his room just plotting on how to drive me nuts.......geez....and yes I realize I sound completly paranoid...but if you could see how completely independant I have seen him be, you would understand

Full Circle (well almost)and other thoughts!

   So today was Amaya's playdate(The Play Project: a play oriented program for children on the autism Spectrum)  and this was a very great session! I am so proud of the progress tha she has made and the progress we have made as a family on how to  really communicate with our sweet little girl, even if there isnt verbal.  These are they days I really enjoy.  To my shock and amazment the boys did what they  were told for the time limit of a whole hour....A WHOLE HOUR!!!!!  Some of you might be thinking "yeah...and?"  and I wont go into how many times I get interupted in one hour....I'll guestimate oh about 60 if you have calculated that up in your head  1 hour is 60 min and if I get interupted 6o times ....yep thats right every single minute.   The blessings of being a mother...they are many...peace and quiet isn't one of those blessings.

 Back to the playdate...Amaya  stayed interested in our play almost the entire time we were  doing our recordings ( we videotape our play to see what we can work on and see what we have accomplished)  We have been doing this for almost a year and the improvements I have seen are small but profound. I have to give a big shoutout to Susan (our consultant)  for sticking with me even through the times I thought I couldnt do it any more....She has been such a guiding soul to me..
 And in other news I am incredibly sick of being stuck in the house and I swear our freakin house is   I am dead serious ..of course Mark thinks I am crazy....but anyway there have been things that go on at our I have heard voices and  heard weird noises seeing things out of the corner of my know typical stuff...but the latest thing has been very routine.. we have a family portrait on the  Entertainment center  The picture faces forward, but every morning it is turned to the side...I have tested and it isn't the vibrations that naturally happen in the house...(cause it just started) this picture has been there for 4 yrs.......ohhhhhh spooky.
   In other news Gage is now tying his shoes without demanding we help him and we are very proud!             
.......and Hayden is getting very good at his magic tricks!!! We have a future Criss Angel on our hand  (but Hayden hopefully wont be as big as a fame whore as Chris Angel)   sorry just had to put that out there!

Guilty Pleasures

Okay, I admit it I have one to many guilty the trainwreck of all reality shows....but my top shows are most definatly  things like Hoarders,   My Strange addiction, know, shows that give you a taste of real human struggle...But here is why I really watch these shows....They make me feel NORMAL....I know I am getting some weird high of of someone elses struggles....but that is not what it really is....Honestly I dont know what it is...maybe we all want to feel normal and sometimes the only way to do that is to see others oddities/differences....I dont know this is just a big ramble but I feel I need to let people know that I am a little how I hurry and get all the evening chores done on Monday night and get everything situated and get a weird gleam in my eye...and my poor husband cant stand  these shows cause the whole time I'm watching I am gasping and Oh My God-ing and saying What the hell is this persons problem???? and I will have to admit I have mini anxiety attacks while watching...Just look at the picture..Would this not give you an anxiety attack?

The other 2

I think I have figured out what my other 2 resolutions are going to be...So here goes #3 Take a multivitamin and other supplements I have deemed necessary in my life(also the kids will be taking a multi and zinc and possibly some other not sure which yet)  But when I realized after going to the doctor Oz website I was kind of amazed at the amount of pill popping I was getting myself into...I mean come on,  is this really how people stay healthy?  Since I said I was going to do this I will...but some of the horse pills are really hard to swallow  and some of these pills are 2-3 times daily....I want to be healthy..and generally I eat healthy...(yes there is the occasional trip to McDonalds)  but according to some our fruit and veggies dont contain the same amount of nutrients they did 50 yrs ago....So all of this is a neccessary evil.
      #4 find something fun for myself that does not involve the kids at this is going to be hard.  I am not a parent that demands a date night once a week  or to go out and have a girls night, because , well it is just not financially feesable to go out and spend 50 to 100 bucks  just cause I am feeling stressed..  Oh I can hear the advice whores now telling me that if I dont make time for me it will make my life more stressful..or that my relationship with my husband will suffer .blah blah blah......I am sure I can find something that is fun and doesnt cost a ton of money....  can't I?This is going to be a good year...hopefully!
