~Someone Most Havent Met~

I would like you all to meet my husband. Being with him yesterday made me realize yet again how much I really miss him when he is away working (hadnt seen him in 3 weeks). Our visit together was short (he left at 12:30 this afternoon) but it was nice and we actually got to go out to eat at Longhorns kid free last night. He played alot with Connor yesterday and Robert and I made up for lost time in more ways then one :-).

I met Robert on the internet of all places. It was in an Atlanta chat room. I was already dating someone also from online when Robert wouldnt give up till I gave him my number. He called and I could say the rest was history, but it wasnt cause it took a few more calls before I would decide to meet him. Our first meeting was at a Wendys where I had to bring Connor my 6 month old son with me. Robert and I hit it off right away and I decided to brake it off with the other guy. we have been together for 4 years next month. I have to say that the past 4 years havent all been a bed of roses, there were defintely alot of thorns to go thru to get where we are today. We defintely had our fights. Its wasnt easy for either of us to build a new relationship with each other after we both had gone thru 2 very tough divorces. We also had 6 kids to consider into this relationship (both having 3) and what they would think and do.

So after 8 months of getting to know each other we moved in together in July 2002 but still we werent ready to marry, finally this year June 21, 2005 we knew we didnt want a big wedding and all the kids were gonna be at the same place at the same time so we did it, we got marry at the court house.

Being married to a Boilermaker who travels alot is hard on me, us and our relationship. It makes me 10 months out of the year a "single" mom in a way. But hey I look at it this way 2 months out of the year he is off and home. Robert is a wonderful man and good to my kids. He is the only father Connor has ever known ( someday maybe I'll explain that one) and we have even talked about Robert adopting him if possbile. Robert has a very kind heart and loves his kids deeply also.

I know Robert would do anything for me as I would do anything for him.

Sometimes I wonder how I got to find love a second time this late in my life? But then again I just count my blessings everyday that I have this wonderful man and this wonderful family!

I did this post in green cause green is Roberts favorite color.


This was taken at the courthouse on our wedding day June 21, 2005. And yes the sun was in my eyes. I look more like my profile picture now, then I had highlights. "I love You Robert!"

~Here We Go Again & Our Carved Pumpkin~

My morning started off bright and early today with a wakeup call at 5:30am by Connor whom at the time seemed fine and healthy. He climbed into bed with me and then fell back asleep till 8, so unlike him. I had some errands to run and Sky wanted to come with me so I left Connor with Shain. I had alot of running around to do after about 2 hours Shain called me when I was in Target, saying Connor was crying his whole body hurt and he didnt know if he had a fever or not. My first thought was oh no another virus cause this is how the last one started. I went home to find Connor crying on Shains bed burning up with a fever of 101. I gave him tylenol and he went to his bed and watched videos. He was sound asleep by 7:30. If this is anything like the last virus I will be up with him all night once the fever spikes, him getting sick (throwing up). I pray though that it isnt the same thing. I knew I shouldnt of let him go to lunchbunch on Thursday "sigh", so many sick kids at school lately.

It figures this would happen now, Robert hasnt been home in 3 weeks and he is suppose to come home for less then 24 hours tomorrow and Connor will be so disappointed if he cant do the things he wants to do with daddy. Not to mention Halloween is on Monday and he will be crushed if he cant go trick ot treating.

Today also I craved our pumpkin. I wanted to crave 2 but when I went to get them from outside one had already rotted on the top, boy was I pissed. Oh well, I did the pumpkin by myself, Shain and Sky were busy and Connor just laid there and watched me cause he felt so sick. Poor littleman. This is the first year I used pictures from a pumpkin carving book and it came out pretty good if I do say so myself :-).


Right after it was done, first time with a stencil


Stuck a candle in it and took a picture in my dark kitchen


Even when my litteman is sick, he still has to be a ham!

"I Know How To Write My Name"

So I am doing laundry and I hear....

Connor: Mommy can I color.

Me: Sure Connor, hold on a second

Connor: I want to color now & cant reach the paper

Me: be right there

So of course a second seems like an hour when it is told to a 4.5 year old and this is what I find when I walk into the room....


And yes that is my kitchen table, And yes that is not washable marker.....

Me: Connor, what are you doing?

Connor: Look mommy I wrote my name (so proudly said)

Iam telling you I wanted to yell at him and say good job both at the same time. Thank goodness for Mr Clean Magic Eraser yet again!

Another example that little ones cant wait. He asked me to play restaurant with him, him being the waiter. I was sitting on the potty of all places at the time. He comes into the bathroom and says we can play in here and hands me a cup and plate. I was like Connor you have to leave mommy be for a minute, I will be right out. He says, but that will take forever (everything to him takes forever!) and then leaves. So he waited right outside the door, telling me to hurry up the whole time. Oh and whats on the menu for today ... Garbage Soup with Dragon Tales Juice, lol ... Kids Gotta Love them!

"Why Is It At This Time Of The Year....."

Why is it at this time of the year, you can always count on someone in the family being sick? Yesterday I wokeup feeling yucky and today worse, head hurts, throat hurts and coughing yuckies. My daughter is also coughing and Connor has been sick since school started from strep to tummy virus to nasty hacking and now a yucky nose/cold. I just knew the mintue Connor came down with his cold I was next. Since Lupus is an immune system illness, the immune system weakens leaving me open to catch colds and such very easily. I got some Zicam today. I used it last year and it worked so hopefully it helps again. Also taking vitamin C & lots of OJ. And of course soup is always good and I just had a big bowl of hot lentil soup which helped warm my cold bones.

And while Iam at it whining ... What happend to the 80 degree tempts from last week. Its 52 here now (cold, damp, windy, no sun) and not suppose to go much higher then that. Waking up to 30's & 40's degree tempts stink! Yea, Yea I know I lived in NY for 37 years I should be use to the cold, but iam telling you living in the south for 5 years sure has thinned out this northerners blood alot!

On a good note my auto delivery Philosophy shower gel came. Cant wait till all are in bed so I can soak in a hot bath of "melting chocolate" or "mint chocolate chip" or "toasted coconut marshmallows" ... now just to decide which one to use, they all smell yummy.

And did you know that each bottle has real recipes on them to match their flavors.....

~Teen Relationships~

Its been some week for my two oldest! Both in different ways have been hurt by the opposite sex. Its so dam hard to see your kids hurt in anyway!

First my daughter, there has been this guy a year older then her that she likes and has been talking to her on the phone, even went to a football game together and such. He had told others he liked her. So on AIM Monday night he asks her out and then again on the phone and she says yes. Tuesday comes along and he acts cold towards Sky. She finds out thru a friend that he thinks he may have made a mistake by asking her out. She confronts him that night and he admits to it and says that he felt so much pressure from both her friends and his and thats why he asked her out so fast. Then proceeds to tell Sky he just wants to be friends. She (I taught her well) was more angry then upset and gave him a piece of mind saying "cant you think for yourself, why the heck did you ask me out if you didnt want to". The guy apologized numous times and things were awkward between them for a few days, but now they are talking again as friends. I was very proud of Sky and the way she handled herself thru this situation. She is not a crier though, but instead gets her feelings out on paper, she has a book of poems from her experiences and what happens in her life, good, bad, sad, happy.

Then there is poor Shain, his girlfriend of over a year ended their relationship yesterday. He came home from school and I never saw so much hurt in his eyes before. Now even though Shain is a male, he is a crier and he locked himself in his room and cried it out. I felt horrible cause there was nothing I could do for him. Even though he is 17, young love the way it is, they had talked marriage and everything else, they did everything together. When I finally got him to talk he told me that a little over a week ago she had mentioned to him that her feelings were changing but she didnt want to break up, but yesterday, she breaks up with him and tells him the dreaded words "I just want to be good friends". I dont want to have a boyfriend anymore". I know to him it feels like the end of the world, this was his first long relationship, and boy I can remember how badly that hurt can feel. But what is even worse is a mother having to watch her child go thru the pain, seeing the hurt in there eyes. And as the days go on I know he will move on and yet he also will never forget his first love.

As a mom all you want to do is protect your children, theres no stronger bond then a mom's love for her child and yet we have to sit back and let them make there own mistakes, go thru there own stages of life. And though we know that we cant protect them completely from everything, we do know that the best thing we can do for them is let them know that we will always be there for them, that we will always love them.

"SMURFS"

Ahhh "The Smurfs" Erin posted about the 80's and loving the Smurfs. I try to post this picture in my answer on her blog but it didnt work so Iam posting it here. This is Papa Smurf. When The Smurfs first came out I loved them and even collected them, strange I know. Me and 2 of my best friends even dressed up as them for halloween when we were juniors in high school, yes I walked around painted light blue all day, lol.

Anyways here is a picture of the only 2 I have left from the collection. Why I kept these, I have no idea. But they defintely bring back some good memories. They now belong to my daughter Sky.

**** Homecoming ****

Here are some pictures from my older twos Homecoming dance. They both had a great time! Sky went with friends. The guy she wanted to go with couldnt go because of family plans. She still had fun with her friends and also 3 guys asked her to dance. Shain went with his girlfriend. They have been together for a little over a year now. I couldnt believe that most of the girls had long gowns on. When I was in high school (years ago, lol) we wore short simple dresses to homecoming dances. Its gonna be interesting to see what they wear for the prom in the spring. Both my kids look so grown up ... time just seems to fly by!


This is Sky/Skylar,15. Her first Homecoming dance. She is so not a girly girl and yet after she was all dressed she liked the way she looked. I curled her hair, and just put a little bit of silver shadow and colored lip gloss on her. The red cheeks isnt blush, she has Psoriasis.


Close up of Sky, I think she defintely looks older then 15 in this pic.


Shain, 17 ... I look at this pic and see a man, oh my goodness, where have the years gone? He taught himself how to tie the tie thru Google.com, lol


This is Shain and his girlfriend at her house. Since he doesnt have his license yet, I drove him there, her mom and myself took alot of pictures and then his g/f drove them to the dance.


Shain & g/f in g/f's livingroom.

~Meet My Pets~

I figured I would introduced the 4 pets in my home. Their favorite place in the house is my daughter's room because she spoils them rotten! The last 2 are of Connor & the dogs. He is such a ham when it comes to the camera.


This is Simba my orange tabby. I adopted Simba from a shelter when he was only 6 weeks old. Someone had found him on a bridge so the shelter called him London Bridges, Sky didnt like that and the movie Lion King had just come out so she called him Simba. He is 11 years old and very spoiled by all.


This is Milo my grey tabby. Milo is 1 year old. He was up for adoption in front of Pet Smart at 8 weeks old. We had just lost a cat and the kids talked me into getting him. His nickname is trouble cause he is always in trouble, lol. This picture was taken under my daughters bed, he was hiding from Connor.


This is Jesse my Min Pin. He is about 3. We found Jesse running around the neighborhood. Took him to the vet and they said at the time he was about 1 1/2 years old. We tried to find his owner for 3 months and no one claimed him so we kepted him. When we found him he was too old to get his ears and tail clipped so we left them alone. I think they look cute just as they are. Jesse is a very good dog and obeys really well. He loves to play and be loved on.


This is Katie my Beagle and our other stray. Katie is about 1 1/2. My oldest son's g/f found her when they were moving. Again no one claimed her, I was all set to take her to the pound but Sky fell in love with her. She has become Sky's dog. She is also always in trouble. Give katie an inch and she will take a mile, lol..

Connor the ham & Jesse trying to lick him. Dont let Connor see the camera cause then you have to take his picture.

Connor the ham & Katie.

~The Harmless Cricket~

So Iam sitting at the computer and I hear from Connor's room....

Connor: screaming "HELP MOMMY HELP!"

Me: Connor, whats wrong?

Connor: Its going to get me mommy.

Me: What is going to get you?

Connor: The big ugly spider in my room.

So I head to his room with a shoe in hand and find Connor scared to death standing on top of his bed.

Connor: Its going to get me mommy.

Me: It wont hurt you honey.

Connor: Yes it will, its big and it hops

Right there I knew it wasnt a spider.

Me: Where is it?

Connor: Over there (pointing) behind my cars.

I go searching thru his stack of cars, and this cricket comes flying out at me, I must of jumped a mile and scared Connor even more. lol I realize what it was and told Connor....

Me: Connor its only a cricket honey, they cant hurt you.

Connor: Oh yes it can cause it has long legs and wings and it jumps.

Me: Come here and we can catch it and put it ouside.

Connor: No, I will wait up here.

So I caught the thing in a cup and put it outside, showing Connor it wasnt gonna hurt him but he still wanted nothing to do with it. The child is extremely afraid of any insect because of my daughter who is also afraid of insects. I have been trying to get him out of this stage but its just not happening, I mean the kid even gets excited when he sees a fly.

Did you know that some people think that crickets are lucky and that if you find one in your house, you arent suppose to kill it, but set it free outside? I never knew this till my husband told me and another online friend also said her mom use to say the same thing.

~Its A Poptart Day~

I have eaten so many blueberry poptarts today that Iam to embarrassed to say how many! Did you ever read the ingredients on these things. I think there is maybe 4 things on the list and the list is so long that I cant pronounce nevermind know what they are. How can something so good be so bad for you? I mean really how can you resist it, you get your dreaded carbs, your empty sweets and your fake fruit and still it tastes good, lol.

Of course I promised myself when I bought the dam things for the "kids" that I wouldnt touch them and stick to eating healthy. Well try telling that to my hormonal body which has just been in a terrible mood all day because, up at 2am -3:30am with a hacking Connor, then wake up to AF twice in 2 weeks, then the carpet people coming at 12 instead of 9 like they were suppose to and then a call from Robert saying that instead of working 13 days straight, he now has to work 3 weeks straight away from home and therefore we probably wont see him for a month! Yep I defintely think it was a "poptart" kind of day.

So please join me in some whine & cheese or should I say poptarts!

Its Been That Kind Of Day!

"Tags, Tags Everywhere"

Yesterday while out shopping with Shain for his Homecoming outfit (he got blackpants, black shirt, white tie) I decided to get myself a pair of jeans cause since my crazy body has been going thru some changes nothing fits and the last few days wearing capris my legs have been cold.!!! Anyways before I ripped off the tags this morning I wanted to make sure they fit ok, after getting them on, I rip off 2 tags and think thats it. Connor and I were running late this morning so I couldnt go thru carpool instead had to walk him in. After I walk him in and talk with his teacher, I leave to go get blood drawn at the lab (they took 5 vials of blood for 11 tests OUCH!) as Iam leaving the office, A lady comes after me yelling mam, mam you have a tag stuck to the back of you. I try to see where it is but couldnt so she took it off for me. It was one of the long sticky ones on the back of my butt/ thigh, how embarassing! bad enough iam walking around with a sticker on me, nevermind one that is about a foot long and enchancing my already big butt/thigh area, lol.

The thing is there had to be atleast 10 people in the hour that thing was on me that saw it on me, between the school and the lab and not one said anything till that lady!

Tell me the truth if you saw someone with a tag that big, would you say anything to them or just laugh and walk away?

I Hope You All Are Having A Great Tuesday!

~UNFORGETTABLE ...~

Last year I bought a bottle of Philosophy shower gel (fron QVC item # S1505), it was a limited one where some of the proceeds went to Breast Cancer Awareness. On the bottle, it had a poem like thing on it called "Unforgettable" , just wanted to share this with you all and remind you all if its in your family or you are over 40, get those mammograms done! And also make sure no matter what the age to do those monthly exams. As some of you know this issue hit close to home with me with a friend passing from it.

"Unforgettable"

She is a mother who can think only of the welware of her children
She is a wife who wonders if her husband will still love her
She is a daughter horrified of the thought of breaking the news to her aging parents
She is a sister, a soulmate, the best girl you know
She is a friend; a real bosom buddy
She is a neighbor who now needs a friend
She is an executive who has lost her control
She is a employee who wonders how she will keep her job, pay her bills, take care of her child, while trying to recover
She is a patient who fears losing her life
She is a doctor who must now save her own life
She is beauty who will always be beautiful
She is famous and now wishes she wasnt
She is a stranger who you cant see, but she can see you
She is a person whom you have yet to meet
She is you,
She is me,
She is ... UNFORGETTABLE!

~3 Hours Later~

This picture really doesnt do the dress justice. The sparkly things are beading thats is the same color as the dress. I will post a pic of her all dressed up next weekend.
This are the shoes. The straps are clear, the shoe itself is silver and the heart is made of clear beading.

Next week is our high schools homecoming dance so yesterday I ventured out and took Sky 15 dress shopping. Do you know how hard it is to shop for a dress for a teen girl that is so not a girly girl and hates heels??? Well it sure isnt easy. First we went to a bridal type shop cause thats where her best friend got her dress ($119.00) and told Sky to look there. Well the mintue I walked into this place I knew the dresses were gonna be too expensive. I dont think there was a dress under $99. Now mind you I dont mind spending that much if it was her prom but a homecoming dress, NO WAY! Next in the next 3 hours at the mall we went into 4 major department stores, and 6 smaller shops. She only tried on 2 dresses after going into all those stores. Of course the dress she ended up getting was in the 2nd store we went to, but nooooo she had to check the other stores. The dress was in a smaller new shop called Giti.

Next was shoes, lord help me on this one. Our main goal was to get a ballet type shoe but of course out of the 5 places we looked in they either didnt have them or they were out of her size, she has big feet (size 10). So then we go back to one of the shoe stores (Room Rack Shoes) and tried some other stuff on and this flat type dressy fliflop shoes seem to come out of nowhere and she tries them and likes them and they are perfect for the dress! YEA!

I have to say I must of walked the length of that mall and back atleast 6 times, my pedometer read over 15,000 steps :-l Though I do have to say she says she feels like a fairy in the dress and I think she looks like a princess in it and the 3 long frustating hours was well worth it. Plus hopefully she wont see herself coming and cause the lady said they had just gotten their that dress in on Friday and only got one in, in each size (SML). The dress was defintely meant to be. Lord help me next year when she goes to the prom!

Tomorrow I take my son 17 for his homecoming outfit, black pants, black shirt and white tie, his choices. Gonna be interesting!

"Farm Day"


Lets start off by saying "Farm Day" started the mintue I volunteered to help with the Farm Day/Fall party (called that cause he goes to a Baptist Preschool and they dont celebrate Halloween). You think I would of learned with my older 2, and me volunteering so much but nooooooo I dont learn. I offer to do the craft of all things and decide to do a pumpkin magnet. This consisted of regular fun foam, sticky fun foam, wobbly eyes, sticky magnets strips and as little glue as possible. So last night I get things together for today, cutting out 51 triangles, 17 stems, mouths with teeth, pumpkins and magnet strips, then seperating everything and putting them into each kids own baggies ( after 3 kids you learn to be organized ahead of time!)

So we start off today with Connor waking up at 5am! He had asked to go to bed at 7 last night so I knew it was gonna be an early morning but 5am, come on! He wokeup feeling fine and the doctor said yesterday if he had no fever and kepted his food down he could go off to school which he was trilled about cause it was "Farm Day" today. They are suppose to go to school dressed in something to do with a farm, like a farmer or a farm animal, needless to say the best Connor would wear was a t-shirt that had farm tractors on it, lol.

So off we go and Connor is all excited about the petting zoo that was gonna be there, never mind you it was raining (of it hasnt rain in 6 weeks and it had to rain today!), the the teachers had to tell the kids the petting zoo wasnt coming but would be back on a sunny day. The boys seemed a little disappointed about this, but some poor girls were crying. Anyways they played roll the pumkins, toss veggies in baskets (onions, carrots & potatoes flying everywhere) and they made butter (tasted good). Then we went back to our classrooms and they ate and I did the craft. with them. Now I have to say the kids did listen well and the craft went well but do you believe there had to be 8 other mothers there and only 1 offered to help me with the kids make the craft! I thought that was just plain rude! Anyways somewhere in there a migrane type headache invaded me, and thinking why do I do this and then remembering I also volunteer to help with the Christmas, Be head of the Valentine, help with Easter and the end of the year parties. Yes I know crazy but hey thats what we do for our kids.

Then I come home only to have to go out again to my gyn appt. of which she want me to have a yearly mamogram done ( they have to come up with a better test then to have your breasts smashed like pancakes between 2 cold metal slabs), plus 11 bloods tests because of female things going on with my body! And have to go back in 2 weeks.

My day ends with Connor falling asleep watching TV by 7:15 , lord let there not be another 5am wakeup call, my oldest son in his room doing lord knows what and my daughter hovering over me waiting to get online, lol ... she has her own blog type thing on xanga.com.

My Sleeping Sick Littleman

This is what I just found when I went to check up on my sick littleman. How come they look so innocent when they are sleeping? And how the heck is he sleeping with his foot like that?

"My 3:30AM Wake Up Call"

So after our temper tantrum yesterday I wakeup up at 3:30am to Connor screaming "MOMMYYYYY!", I think iam going to throwup". I run out of bed (pull something in my bad ankle), grab him and run to the bathroom, and yes we made it. Needless to say he called me 4 times after that and neither one of us went back to sleep.

He has 102 fever and is complaining that his whole body hurts, especially when the Tylenol wears off. So remember the reason I had to go back to Walmart yesterday (cause he had to bring snack today), well all that was for nothing seeing as he didnt go to school today of which he is highly upset about and keeps saying he wants to go to school cause when you bring snack you get to be line leader and he had never been line leader cause last time he had to bring snack he had strep. (Maybe him bringing snack is jinx or something)

So here I sit in my jammies cause I have a kid that is hanging on to me for dear life, what I wouldnt give for a shower ... Its gonna be a long day!

~MAJOR MELTDOWN~

Ever notice how strong a 4 year old is when they go into a major meltdown and throw a huge temper tantrum? Today Connor had a major meltdown and to top it off it was in public at Walmart!

It all started when I went to pick him up at pre-k. While waiting in carpool to leave, he tells me he has to bring snack tommorrow, (I wasnt to thrilled with this cause I had just come from Walmart). Anyways I decided that we are gonna head back to Walmart to get the snack stuff so that I dont have to go back out later. So off we go. I let him sit in the big part of the cart cause I am not in the mood to chase him around the store. Its starts off with him agruing with me on what to get for the class snack. We finally agree on something somewhat healthy (cause thats what they are suppose to bring). Then he decides he wants out and wants to push the carriage, against my better judgement and becuase Iam not in a mood to fight with him, I let him (cause lack of sleep). He does pretty good till we are about to leave then crashes into a table and almost runs down a woman. I tell him no more, that iam gonna help him push the cart well thats was it, it was like I had stuck a knife right thru him. He started yelling that he wanted to push the cart by himself, I said that he had to let me help so that we can get home. Then all of a sudden he throws a huge fit, stands there as if I was the meanest person in the world and wont come with me. So the mean mommy grabs ahold of his hand and the cart and off we go, yelling at the top of his lungs "LET ME GO!, LET ME GO!".

He was so loud, I thought for sure someone was gonna call sercurity and take me away for kidknapping! This went on all the way thru the parking lot to the van. Iam telling you, I was really surprised no one called the police on us.

So we get into the van and I tell him eye, and as calm as I can be that when we get home he goes straight to his room and no TV for 1 hour. So o course all the way home (its was only about 7min drive but it seemed like an hour) he screamed "I DONT WANT TO GO TO MY ROOM!" Well of course I stuck to what I said and in his room he went. So almost 2 hours later he is of course is fine, talking to me, asking me for things, saying please & thankyou and acting as if nothing ever happened. I cant even believe that the boy that threw a fit 2 hours ago is the same calm, one now.

Now I honestly can say its been quite a while since Connor has thrown a fit like this that i thought for sure he had grown out of it, but as I know from my older 2 the meltdowns can happen at anytime, anywhere, at any age. I also believe that part of the reason for this meltdown is because after Robert said he was coming home over the weekend, something happened and he couldnt and Connor is very upset about that!

So here I sit wishing at this moment, exhausted, that I kepted a bottle of wine in the house cause lord only knows I could sure use one right now!

"IS IT BEDTIME YET?"

"Been Tagged"

ROFL @ "mama", even though I dont have 23 posts, she says I still had to do it!

"OK Ms Smarty Pants....Do the 3rd post and the 5th sentence! :P Ha!"

So this is for you "mama"

So the 3rd post was "ITS NEGATIVE!!!"

And the 5th sentence is:

The nurse gets on the phone and proceeds to ask me "have you taken a pregnancy test?", I thought my mouth was gonna drop to the floor.

As I had said in the post, I was so glad the test was negative, I did have my tubes done after Connor and didnt know what I would of done if it was positive.

So there you have "mama", I played :-p
