The Right Thing

Have you ever wondered why something is fair for one person, but not for another? I'm sure you have. I know I have. I'm suddenly in a situation where it's fair for one side of the family, but not for the other. I'm being forced to leave out certain people in the family in order to keep another happy. Now I'm sorry, but that's wrong. How can I let all of these other people be in my life, but not let this one tiny part not be, as if that wouldn't be noticeable. I love my family all alike.. my mom, dad, sisters and brothers. And I love my husband, but he's just not being fair and he's not looking at things right... I just don't know how to get him to see that he's not treating this situation correctly.

Good Friday NOT Earth Day

So I'm quite frustrated to hear that everyone is calling today Earth Day, when this day has been used to celebrate Good Friday for a REALLY LONG time.

I'm extremely frustrated that they're taking God out of everything!

And that people are having prejudice over christians and everything that has to do with christians, but I have to hear their cursing, smell their smoke, hear their music, listen to all the gross things they did over the weekend and who they did them with, and all the rest of the stuff that goes with their not being in church.

Well, now that I have that out I do hope everyone is having a fabulous Good Friday. And as a side note I have NO problem celebrating the earth and taking care of the earth, but don't replace a day that was used to celebrate God to celebrate the earth, the earth wouldn't be here without God and neither would we.

I had to work today, my husband did not, but I got to go eat chinese with everyone and Scott was a special visitor. He's spending some more time with us at our house, which is cool. (Miles and him are playing NBA Jam on the XBox so I've done dishes, got on Facebook, and now I'm blogging .)

I might bounce from subject to subject so just bear with me.

I'm unsure if I've told you all about this or not, but we have a pregnant kitty, she's not even a year old, she's all black, and her name is Lil (little) Bit (Although she isn't that little right now) By our calculations, since cats are only pregnant for 65 days, she should be having them either the end of this month or beginning of next, depending on when Scooter got her pregnant. It must have happened right before he got fixed. He is a black and gray tiger print (as my mother-in-law calls him, he's a M head) he's just about 1. So I'm pretty sure they'll have some AH-DORABLE kittens. To bad I won't be able to keep them all.

P.S. I love how people can claim things that aren't theirs. Like, just be like, "oh if it's like _____ it's mine!" Nope sorry, my cat, my cat's kittens and if I want it I keep it, no one has higher dibs than me on these kittens. Plus I'll be shocked if they have these certain types.

Ok well, I think I'm done complaining now. I need to work on my crocheting so I can start something new soon.

Have a fabulous day! God bless!

Let Me Tell You About Yesterday...

As I've said oh, 3 or 4 times in the past few days, yesterday was my dad and Mari's first time coming over to see our house. I was super excited. And everything went great. They love our house! I love when people love our house, of course that's because I love our house and so does Miles and we want people to be excited about it with us.

Miles cooked hamburgers on the George Foreman grill and we had mac n' cheese, baked potatoes, and my dad and Mari brought over a veggie dish. Everything tasted great. And once we were done eating we talked for a while then we went into the living room and watched Bruce Almighty. They'd never seen Bruce Almighty before, but they'd seen Evan Almighty which came after it. Lol. Oh well.

They came here about 4:00 p.m.-ish and left at around 8:00-8:30 p.m.-ish. Lol. I'm just so great at keeping track of time, right? Anyways, the point is they stayed for quite a while. I was excited about that. It'll be a sad thing when they move, but living there is something they've dreamed of doing and now they're getting to and I'm happy for them. After all how many people can say they've dreamed of living somewhere and then when they get older, not old, but older actually can say that they've accomplished their dream? So I am happy for them. And hopefully Miles and I will be able to go see them from time to time. I know it won't be often, especially not with such high has prices, but I'm not going to go forever without seeing them.

Maybe we'll travel by train, I've never traveled a far distance by train. That sounds fun. I would also like to travel by train to New York, Chicago, ... and some other places, but those are the main two.

Anyways, this was just to let you know that yesterday went great. :)

Baby Be Bold!

When decorating for a baby's room what's one of the first things you normally hear? It's that the room has to stimulate the baby, right? It has to have lots of color, but not just any colors they need to be bright and bold. So someone tell me why so many people now days are depriving their children of the colorful stimulation that they need. You see white, barely green, barely pink, barely blue,... No, you go with GREEN, PURPLE, BLUE, YELLOW, ... BOLD COLORS.

I know that these bold colors may not match the rest of your house, but I personally can't wait to make a big, bright, bold world for my baby, whenever that day comes. They need that and I understand that.

Some people require the bold colors until the day they die and some grow out of it in their teen years, but lets be honest most people just LOVE bold colors, but they don't do them because the fashion now is boring and bland. I don't care what the "fashion people" say is a "fashion don't" I'm going to go with the colors that I like and the colors that put me in a good mood. They say some things are fashion that don't match at all so their opinions just don't count in my book.

Anyways, my point is your baby needs the stimulation from the bold colors so just give it to them!

The Day Is Here! ...Excitement!

Whelp, the house is clean and I'm waiting for a little bit of time to pass before I go to the store to buy some groceries. I decided in my time of waiting that would get online, check e-mails, facebook, blog,... you know the normal stuff.

I'm super excited that my dad and Mari are coming over to our house for the first time. It only took almost a year of living here before they came over. I know part of that is my fault, even if other people disagree. Wow, people tell me not to be negative and a downer. Lol.

I also have to still have my sister Nyla and my sister Shari over (and their families) and my brother Ryan and his family. Who as long as they don't call it off (...again) Should be getting married in a few months. Back to who still needs to come over, instead of naming a WHOLE bunch of names I'll just say 99% of our friends.

I'm so excited to know that my first baby blanket is almost done! So that will go up in the guest bedroom closet, which is basically my second closet. It has my baby stuff and the stuff for when we have a baby, our wedding stuff, and just some other random things. And if you really want to be shocked, even with all that stuff in there it is clean and put away, people can go in there and look at the stuff. It's amazing and makes me feel good :)

Anyone want to go shopping for me? I mean really I have to go to Wal-Mart every single day except for Tuesdays for work and most Tuesdays for some reason or another I STILL end up in there! I just don't find it fair. I have to get tomatoes, lettuce, hamburger buns, and some yarn for my crocheting. No, really I'll get it myself, it's not like it's a whole cart load of stuff so I'll live. I just don't want to get out in this weather.

By the way, in case you read this and have no clue about the weather where I am. It's rainy and storming and just blah. So whoever has the sun shine enjoy it and please send some this way.

Ok, so normally I'm a complete homebody, for those of you outgoing people who don't know what that is, it is someone who prefers to be in there house pretty much all the time. But this week is booked. I mean Sundays there's church -passed that day, Monday I had to clean, go to work, and had TWO unexpected visitors -passed, Tuesday aka Today we have my dad and Mari over which caused some more cleaning, Wednesday is work and church, Thursday we're having someone (one that I know of maybe two) over and work, Friday there's work and a tent revival thing,... Well, you get the hint BOOKED. So I'm just trying to figure out when to have Nyla and Shari over. Clearly it won't be on the same day, but they're both family and they both need to see the house. Maybe Saturday, idk, I don't even know if we have plans on Saturday. Lol.

Speaking of which I'm going to get off here. I have to go put some things in my calendar and go shopping! (Ode To Joy)

Have a FABULOUS day everyone! God Bless.

They're Coming Tomorrow!

Today is Monday, yes, that dreaded day where you wake up saying, "5 more minutes,please" and "Can I just go back to bed?!" I'm so glad I don't normally have to feel that way about Mondays or any days really.

I woke up and though I knew I had to clean because my dad and step-mom, Mari are coming over tomorrow for the first time, but instead of getting right to the cleaning I wanted to watch a movie so I watched Home Room on Netflix, then I began to clean downstairs.

Before I started cleaning I got a text from a friend who hadn't been over in a while, Scott. He asked if Miles and I have any plans and I said no, just some cleaning and so he asked if we minded some company and I didn't so I said that would be ok. So then I really had to start cleaning! I knew people were coming over tomorrow, but had NO clue anyone would be trying to come over today!

Anyways he's been here since 4:30 p.m. and it's almost 10:00 p.m., which is awesome because we haven't been able to hang out with him in a while. It's good for Miles, he needs his friends. I realize I took him away from his friends, that wasn't my intention, I figured he would still hang out with them and that he would make new friends here, boy was I wrong! He thinks Frankfort people are stupid, idiots. (Question: Then why'd he marry one? Good question, eh?)

Anyways Dillon had also come over to hang out for I don't know, maybe 30 minutes. So 2 guests on the cleaning day :P I'm ok with that, I still have plenty of time tomorrow to clean.

Miles and Scott have been playing NBA Jam on the Xbox 360 pretty much since he got here, which has given me the time to be able to do A LOT of crocheting :)

Which I'm glad because I really want to finish this baby blanket, yes baby blanket! No baby, just a baby blanket. I'm kind of doing a hope chest, but it's for a baby, basically for a little girl, but there are boys things too, just in case. This is a purple baby blanket next one I do will be a green for a boy.

Welp, I'm very sleepy and can't really concentrate so I'm going to get off here. Have a good night everyone. Stay safe and God bless.

Pregnant People Everywhere!

Okay, so I don't know if you've realized this, but right now there seriously are pregnant women everywhere! Have you noticed?! It seems like everyone I know is pregnant! And you go into Wal-Mart, the Mall, or something and every other woman you see is pregnant. It's insane! (It doesn't help that most of the people I know {exaggeration on the most part} got married around the same time and are now all getting pregnant around the same time.) Is there something in the water? And if so why haven't I been 'infected'? LOL.

Some people have just had their babies, some are getting ready to, some are halfway there (to the due date), and the others are just finding out that they're pregnant. I guess all the women are feeling that 'empty feeling' they talk about.

I've gotta say I'd love to have a baby, I'd love to skip the whole labor thing, but I don't have that option. But for now I have to wait. Gotta save back some money, pay off some bills, get the house more where I'd want it (decorating and such),... we just have to make sure we're better off and that being parents won't make us broke. I'd hate to have a kid and be so broke that I regretted having it! It's not like people pay our bills for us, we do it the hard way, but you know what we'll feel better about doing it the hard way when we've paid everything off ALL BY OURSELVES :) To many people paying other people's bills... that's all I have to say, well not really, but that's all I'm going to say, besides I know more than one person/family that lets other people pay their bills!

I'm getting tired, so I'm going to get off here and hopefully go to bed. Goodnight, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite :P

Work, More Work, Then Another Birthday Party

Well, as I said yesterday today was also a busy day.

Since I was SO tired from my busy day yesterday, I didn't wake up until 10 a.m. Once I woke up I checked my e-mail, did some necessary spam control, then I could smell food that wasn't there and had a craving for it, it was Cinnamon Rolls so I got up and what do you know we had some, so I made them.

After we ate we had a couple hours before we had to be anywhere so Miles was playing his game and I watched and got on Facebook.

At 1 p.m. we had to get up and get ready because at 1:30 p.m. we took a tour through the possible new church buildings. That lasted.. oh, say an hour.

Once we left there I went to Wal-Mart to stock the bread, once the bread was stocked we did a little shopping then headed home. On the way home I had called my step-dad to see if we could ride with them to Lafayette for an 'event' we were all 4 going too. While being on the phone he asked if I would go work for an hour at the motel, so we dropped off the stuff we bought, then to the motel we went.

Since my objective at the motel was to wait for someone to get their stuff out of a room and my hair wasn't done, I decided to do my hair. Once my hair was done so was the guy I was waiting on and so we left and went to the church to meet my mom and Mike to carpool with them.

They were there for a church meeting about the new building. Since the meeting wasn't over Miles and I went to the back pew and sat waiting for it to end, which made us late for the party and we didn't even stay for the whole meeting.

The party was a birthday party for a friend that Miles and I have adopted as a grandpa figure (we've also adopted his wife as a grandma figure) He turned 72 today. The party was at Pizza Hut in Lafayette and there was actually 2 birthday parties down in the same area, it was packed!

We sat off to the side of the party, but both 'grandma' and 'grandpa' came to talk and sit with us, so it was fine. I got to see a lot of people I hadn't seen in a while, so that was nice. One of their grandkids had a 2 month old baby girl who was SO CUTE, so of course I HAD to hold her. My mom kept saying how weird it was to see me holding a baby, because normally I wouldn't and I didn't used to like kids. Amazing what the years can change! I just wanted to steal the cute little thing!

I've been learning to crochet, my mom is teaching me. I'm happy that it isn't hard to learn. Before I know it I'll be making blankets, purses, hats, gloves, scarves, ... all of it! And I can't wait! I'm sure I'll make baby boots, hats, gloves, blankets, outfits,...! Just for when I eventually have one :)

Anyways, we're back home and I'm tired so I'm going to get off here and just relax! Goodnight all! God Bless!

Work, More Work, Then A Birthday Party :)

Today is of course Friday, my busy day, as I've said before.

Today started off with having to get up around 8 a.m. (not complaining to much, that's better than 4:30, which is when Miles gets up) After getting up and getting ready I went to work. I worked from 9 a.m. (I got there about 15 minutes or so before then) to 12:30 p.m., which is when I went to lunch at Everything OK. Miles was off work early enough so I got to go as kind of a special thing. Anyways, I went back to work and was there from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

After I left the motel, which is where I was working, I went to Wal-Mart to do my bread job. I was there (for work) for maybe 20 minutes, then I went in search of a birthday card for my niece who had her birthday party today, she turned 8 on Wednesday, the 6th.

After leaving Wal-Mart I had to go back to the motel because brilliant me forgot something.

(This is a long story, I know)

I left the motel and went to the ATM across the street to cash my check from the bread job. Then I FINALLY got to go home! But not for very long.

It was about 4:30 p.m. when I got home. I decided that since my niece's birthday party wasn't until 6 p.m. that I had enough time to take a bath, which was much appreciated since my day seemed to be nothing but busy. So as per usual after my bath I got out of the tub and got dressed (DUH!, right?). Came downstairs and did my hair and then I was off again!

Went to the party (was late due to taking a different way there and getting confused) But we had some near perfect timing because my brother had just shown up with the pizza. So thus the party began.

It started with pizza, then presents, to cake, and just hanging out. Some people were in the living room (about half, not counting kids) and then the other half in the kitchen/dining room. Everyone was talking and laughing, while the kids were playing.

Once again another reason to want to have kids. (Between all the pregnant people, the people who've just had kids, the baby showers, and just seeing kids all the time in general.. it's just not fair.)

Miles was of course, since he's loved by children of all ages was getting hit, teased, and laughed at, even when he wasn't telling jokes. He like only he can do made the nice quiet house very, very loud with joyous laughter and the snorting that goes along with the laughter. Which is just his personality, he actually getting much better at being quiet, it's a work in progress.

Anyways, we all just sat around talking, telling jokes, and just being together. And none of it was cursing or corrupt, just good christian fun, which I enjoyed very much!

It's not like I get out of the house a lot, though I would like too! It always does me good to get out around friends and family, which sometimes it seems like the only real friends there are is family, because they have the tightest bonds with you there's blood, marriage papers, years of living together, or just years of getting together for holidays and cookouts.

I wasn't trying to say none of my friends are true, we all just have our own lives now and we are all very different. Most have children, some are in church, some are out of church, some are married, some divorced, engaged, single, some are busy, and some .. well, no we're basically all busy LOL... Anyways, the point is we all chose different paths, which will always makes friendships harder.

We stayed at the party for, I believe Miles said around 2 hours.

And we are now home! He is playing Fallout 3, while I am blogging to you :)

So big shocker, I've decided to change the color (walls) in the living room. I'm going to hopefully go with this dark brownish color, no, it's not one of those ugly or boring browns, it's a pretty brown that is actually the color in my brother and sister-in-law's home. Yes, I'm stealing it. I LOVE it!

I'm also, if everything goes right, going to buy my Va Va Voom red paint for the dining room tomorrow :) Seeing how nice their house is made me want to start painting again! And hopefully I can get my colors all together now that I'll have a more neutral color in the living room! Then I can get more decor!!!! YAY!!!!!!!

Yeah, well, I think that's all I have to say for now, except that tomorrow is going to be busy as well, not as busy as today though. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow, if I get the chance.

Have a good night, everyone! God bless! And stay safe!

Wednesday, April 6, 2011


It's been a while since I've been on to blog. Sorry to any of you that read it.

I have a lot on my mind at the moment... and I have no clue what to say, what would be right to say, or how to even start.

I guess I'll start by explaining that I haven't been on in so long because I've been busy. I was sick for a little bit of the time and then just busy.

I've been getting better at doing more cleaning and that means that once again I'll have to work on the whole cooking thing. I'm most definitely not your average wife, not that not being like me is a bad thing, but certain people have high expectations and think that all the world should be the same. Sure if we went back to where wives didn't work (couldn't work) then house work should be what they do, but even then some people put WAY to much importance on things that don't matter and they forget the things that do. Sorry when I'm laying in my death bed or have a friend or family laying in their deathbed I won't be thinking about cleaning, I'll be thinking about all the things in my loved ones life (lives) that I've missed and all the time I wasted on stupid things instead of being with them. Just think about it, imagine it... you'll agree.

Speaking of death I know someone that was given a short amount of time to live by the doctor, I'm not close to this person, but I find myself troubled. This person is only a couple of years older than my husband, has a husband, children, goes to church, believes in miracles and healing,... And she has personally seen God's healing powers in her child. I know that God is able to do ANYTHING, but I find myself just 'holding my breath' waiting to see if his answer will be yes or no. If yes, that's AMAZING, but if no, what about her husband and her kids, all of her friends, family, church family,...the heartache and pain that they will all feel. I can't help, but have a broken heart (or in the words of Dr. Brennan on Bones, it's heart crushing; since the heart doesn't break, but gets crushed) just thinking about it. The mourning process, the moving on, the possibility of finding someone new, trying not to compare the old person with the new person,... just everything about it is heart crushing. I pray for them for a miracle of healing and for peace in which ever form God chooses.

Ok off the heavy for now. I've been playing Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360. My own game and I've made it to level 15 or 16, only having help once! I'm so proud of myself! I can't wait to finish the game! I have trouble playing Fallout in front of my husband though, he hates the way I do things on the game so he ends up in a bad mood and starts his frustrated yelling (not that I'm particularly fond of every move he makes in the game either) I also have a problem playing in front of his because I'm afraid I'll mess up in front of him. I know that messing up is a part of life and that I am only human, but I'm constantly trying to impress him.

Unfortunately he would prefer that I cook and have a spotless house, and other things such as those, I don't always find the necessity in those things. Why should I have to cook when we could just heat something up or throw a pizza in the oven? And why should the house be perfectly clean? It's not like it's going to stay that way. Yes, yes, that's where most people say well why do you take a bath you're just going to get dirty again. I'm not saying to let the house stink or to let it be a wreck I'm just saying why should I waste my time trying to make it perfect, when there's no such thing, besides God.

Currently I'm watching Miles play Fallout 3. I play in the mornings while he's at work and he plays when he gets home. We eat somewhere in between, normally just fend for ourselves.

Today has been a beautiful day, wonderful weather. We have the windows open even now. The cats have been sitting in the windows watching the cars and the birds, oh and our loud neighbors. I hope the weather continues to be like this (and even better)

Well, I think I'm going to get off of here now... I'm craving some pizza. And no I'm not pregnant, normal non pregnant people can have cravings too!

Have a good night everyone! God bless.
