If you don't want them, don't have them!

I'm so tired of people who don't know the true meaning of a parent having kids! I just saw on Facebook where a friend heard a parent telling their child that if they could pick them up then they'd drop them on their head. And all the time at Walmart I hear parents yelling and cursing at their kids, but guess what if their child was to do that to them they'd get beat, talk about hypocritical. Parents should know that their children learn from them so they have to be the example, but no that's just to hard to do.

Something tells me today is going to be one of those days where everything annoys me and that means I'm going to have a horrible headache. Dear Lord, please help me today!

Life In A Rut

I feel like I do the same thing every single day of every single week. I know it isn't true and I know that real life is about doing the same things over and over. You wake up you go to work, you do the dishes, you do laundry, you clean the house, you cook a meal, ... or whatever your schedule is and then you get up and do the same thing the next day. I remember thinking that once I got out of the house and got married that my life would be a lot of fun, hanging out with friends all the time, having friends over to our home, going out and having nice dinner dates with my husband, etc., but the truth is it's never like you expect. It's a lot of hard work. Yes, sometimes you have to just say forget cleaning the house today I'm going to go see my friends or family because really your friends and your family are important, the last thing you want is for something to happen to someone you love and just remembering all the times you could have made time for them OR you're laying in your death bed and thinking I wish I would have spent more time with the people I love because you won't be thinking I wish I would have cleaned my house more, that won't matter anymore.

Now I have to get back to my rut. Have a great day!


Anybody want to know about my day? Yeah, didn't think so, but I'm going to post it anyways. 

Well, I woke up at 7:30 a.m., got up took a bath, got ready for the day (dressed, teeth brushed, hair done... etc.) then I went to work at Walmart to stock the bread. Stocking the bread took an hour, left Walmart and went home, switched the laundry in the washer to the dryer, mowed the yard (which was complicated due to the decorating style of the neighbors... I'll leave it at that), cooled off for a few minute, got something to eat, put laundry in the washer, and watched some shows on the DVR... Which I'm still doing (movies on DVR) plus getting ready to fold clothes. Then I'm going to see about getting rid of this cake and ice cream craving. I also 'get' to go to Walmart for work again around 2:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m. whichever time I decide to go in. So that's my day/plans so far. Maybe I'll post again, if something interesting happens, but I doubt anything will. 

Want a laugh? 
I hope you get a laugh from it. I know I did :)

Today's Cravings

Okay I'm one of those people who craves a certain meal every single day and that's without being pregnant (I'm sure I'll be impossible once I get pregnant). Today I'm craving cake and ice cream! No real meal today, just cake and ice cream, which we have none of. So I have no clue what I'm going to do about this. I have a cake like thing, but pretty sure we don't have ice cream.. if we do its been in the fridge for a while and I have no clue if it'll be any good anymore. Guess I'm going to find out!

Anyone else have any food cravings today? Feel free to share.

About me and flowers...

I LOVE flowers and being surprised with flowers, but I hate flowers all at the same time. Let me guess you're asking why? Why is because they die. They live and look beautiful for maybe a week and then they're gone. I don't take well to death be it flowers, animals, or people. But I love enjoying the flowers while they're alive! Just thought I'd share....

Surprise Roses

So Friday started off like a normal day. In other words Miles got up and went to work at the normal time and I went back to bed, then I got up and went to work,.... But once I got to work Mike asked if I wanted to go to Everything OK with them to eat and I said yes. And I kind of had this feeling that Miles was off work, but I wasn't sure so I go to Everything OK for lunch and when I get there I look over the tall wall at the entrance to ask if I'd been paid for already and nearly get flowers thrown in my face. Now I couldn't see Miles, but once I asked he stood up and said I paid for you :) It was a good surprise.

                                                    And here they are ^^^^ I LOVE them <3

Life.. so dull!

I don't know about your life, but mine is pretty dull! Miles is working from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. (or later) so I don't get a lot of time with him, which means we don't get to hang out with our friends. So I'm either at home or at work. I don't really get out of the house besides for work if Miles isn't going out with me, so I don't get to see any of my friends either. Plus it's not like we have a ton of money to just waste gas and spend money on fun things. We aren't struggling financially, but that's because we haven't been stupid with our money and God has blessed us.

Anyways, here recently the only time we've been out with friends is around the beginning of the month when our church group (J.O.Y.) went out bowling and went to Texas Roadhouse after and then on Friday a couple from Miles' work are wanting to go bowling so as long as everything works out we'll do that.

I'm hoping to have some more fun in life, maybe then my blog could be a little more interesting. Lol. Well, I've got to get off of here and finish eating then take a walk (once I get dressed for the day)

Have a great day, everyone!

So anyone who is close to me knows that I used to absolutely hate Subway, but my hubby gets a sandwich (sub or whatever you call it) that I absolutely love. So now I've been wanting Subway a lot, which is good since it's supposed to be healthy for you. That makes me smile :) Unfortunately the kind we get probably isn't one of the super healthy ones, but it has to be better than some of the other places we eat at. (McDonalds, Burger King,... etc.)

Anyways, I guess the point in this would be to say, sure you may not like it now, but if you keep trying different things from Subway I'm sure you'll find at least one sandwich that you love!

Sleeping Troubles

I don't know about you, but I love sleep! Well, recently once my husband leaves for work I can't go back to sleep. If I can't sleep once he leaves then I've lost 3-4 hours of sleep that I need very much. I have no clue what I'm going to do to stop this issue. I used to take just a little bit of Nyquil and that did wonders, but I'd like to be able to sleep without taking any thing. That means I don't want to take any medicine, even if it's all natural pills like Melatonin.  Any ideas please leave a comment.

Friday, June 17, 2011 :)

Fridays are kind of busy days, so with this being a Friday, it's a busy day. I went to work at the motel as per usual, then to Walmart to stock the bread also usual. But what is different about today is the fact that the J.O.Y. group is going bowling and for once we're going with them! This is the first time since we've started going to C.L.C. that we've been able to go to to a J.O.Y. event so it's kind of exciting :) 

Now I'm waiting for some time to pass and for my hubby to let me know if he's going to be able to get home in enough time before we have to go bowling. If not I'm meeting him in Lafayette to go bowling :) Whelp, I'm getting offline. Have a great day!

Here's My Thursday (6-16-11)

Today... yeah, well today I woke up and I thought it was Friday, so I was freaking out, thinking that I was late for work. So I just sat in bed thinking and then I realized that I was Thursday so, of course, I gave a sigh of relief. Lol.

After I woke up I came down stair and had breakfast, which was actually more of a snack. Lol. I had Lays chips and Sour Cream, which yes, I know is HORRIBLE for losing weight, like I'm wanting to do, but according to the scales I've been losing weight slowly. That makes me happy, sure like everyone else I'd love to just lose it all right now, but that's not possible and it's not healthy so I'm doing it the smart way. I will be able to wear my old clothes again! Lol.

So as of right now I'm watching A Baby Story.  And yes, I still want a baby right now, but we're still waiting. I need to lose weight before we have a kid, we need to take the trip to Jamaica that we've been wanting to take (the big honeymoon we didn't have, not that Sybaris wasn't great, but it was only like 1 hour away. Lol.),

I also want to get more stuff bought like clothes, crib, toys, car seat,... and all the rest of the important stuff.  And some of you may be thinking, but you don't know what the sex of the baby will be. That's true, but as for stuff like car seats, cribs,... etc. I can make something to put over it if it's for the wrong sex. As for clothes we've bought some for both and we'll give away the clothes that we don't need to someone who has a baby of that sex or keep it for the next baby (if we choose to have another).  So we wait. Also more needs done to the house. I know there will never be a "right time" to have a baby, but I do believe that you can make your life a little more right by preparing early. Money in the savings account, the main baby stuff already bought, house child proof, .... etc.

P.S. The cutest thing : All 7 kittens are sleeping on the couch behind me. I love them all so much!

                                                    Here's me today^^^^^
So I've been cleaning today. Later on I'll be cooking meatloaf for dinner, but as for right now I need to get to work (just to get it over with). Hope you're all having a great day!

Forgetful Shopper

Yesterday I had to work and so after work I went shopping for something quick to fix for dinner for and for something for today since I knew i didn't have to work and I really don't like going into Walmart when I don't have to. So I grabbed everything, paid, and came home. 

Well, yesterday I realized that I didn't get any sides to go with my meal for today. So I made a mental note to go to the store today and get a couple of sides. 

When Miles got home from work he asked if I had bought milk and cookies. First off he hadn't told me he wanted cookies and I wasn't aware that we needed milk. So I added to my mental note to buy milk and cookies. 

So today I go into the store, I grab my two sides, I pay, then I leave. Well, as soon as I got home and pulled into the drive I remembered that he wanted cookies and milk.

I can't believe I forgot it, I'm always forgetting things! I DO NOT make a good shopper. I'm thinking later I'll probably go back to the store (probably a closer store than Walmart) and get some cookies and milk. 

A House of Night Novel :)

Today is Tuesday! My day off. Yay!
So far I've slept until 10 a.m., read a little of my book Tempted : A House of Night Novel, ate some leftover hamburger helper from yesterday's dinner, and watched the new episode of Secret Life. Then I'm going to read more of my book. I'm going to finish it today, hopefully. Then I'm hoping to get the next book of the series on my Kindle and the 2 that follow that! Then I'll be done with this series and I'll have to find a new one to read... hmm... Any suggestions?
Oh BTW, my kittens are so adorable! I have about 4 of them sitting behind me between my back and the couch just sleeping or relaxing :) SO CUTE! And one is trying to climb me, which they are really good at! They climb out of their box, up on the couch, on people, they even try to climb the walls! Haha. They think they're Spiderman.
Whelp, off I go to read my book. Hope everyone has a great day!

The Day Before: Prep Time

Today is Thursday, duh right? Well, what you may not know is today is the day before Vacation Bible School (V.B.S.) at my church. So today is set-up day. I'm putting the iron-on onto mine and Miles' shirt :) The theme for this year is PandaMania :Where God is Wild about You! I'm a Crew Member which means I'll be taking a group of kids from class to class and I'll also help participate in the classes. They'll have Bible classes where they hear a story about a Bible verse, lots of singing, games, Saturday for the kids who are old enough we'll go Laser Tagging (free for those registered and $4 for those who are not registered),... Lots of different activities that the kids love :) How do we know they'll love it? Because MANY churches do V.B.S. and they continue to have them because of the impact that it has on the kids.

Btw I have my shirt done and it looks pretty good :) Now I'm waiting on my husbands to cool off. He's kind of picky so it was best that I know what I was doing before I did his :P

Well, besides getting things ready for V.B.S. today I have work at 3p.m. then I'll wait until Miles gets off work and hopefully I'll remember to get something from Walmart to cook (something simple) No clue what will happen after that, we'll see. Miles is normally quite tired after work so he doesn't want to get out and do much. Anyways I'm going to go see if his shirt has cooled.

Have a great day! God bless!

Have you ever felt empty?

I don't mean then empty, like 'my marriage isn't doing well' or 'my kids seem to hate me' (etc.) I mean the everything is going pretty good in life, but there's still something that's missing emptiness.

Well here recently I've felt that. There are a couple of possibilities of what could cause this feeling to go away.

First option, I'm pretty sure everyone is already aware of this one, is I would like to have a baby, but I'm unsure if now is the right time in my and Miles' life (God's will).

Second option is that Miles and I have both had a calling and a passion for a certain ministry in the church, that we both had long before we ever knew each other, but this position isn't available and once again I'm not sure if right now is God's will.

Both things would be stressful at times, but I know that they would make me happy. So for right now I'm waiting on God and what happens, happens. I know He'd never give us more than we can bear, so I trust that things will happen when it's the right time....

Just needed to share. If you pray please help us to pray that we will know what to do. Thank you.

God Bless!

Welcome To Palm Pixi

Yesterday I got my new phone. Yes, the Palm Pixi. I had the Palm Pre previously and so I knew I'd love this phone and I do. So since I got the phone I've been doing all the fun stuff like adding contacts, music, pictures,... etc.

Today is my day off so I've been working on putting music on the phone :) And watching a marathon of Ghost Whisperer. Yeah, not exactly motivated today.

But I've got to do dishes, water the plants, probably laundry to do? I don't really remember. Cleaning to do as usual. I seriously wish there was a way to keep things clean. Someone needs to create self washing clothes, self washing furniture, self cleaning dishes! Lol. Yeah, something tells me this won't be happening, at least not anytime soon.

Oh well, not in a blogging mood, so I'll be getting off here now. Have a good day, everyone!

♫I get to see my nephew today, I get to see my nephew today...♫ (Lol, nope, I'm not excited)

I'm so excited! Today I get to see my youngest nephew, Owen! He was born May 4th and this is only my second time seeing him. Yeah I definitely should have seen him before now, btw I am NOT blaming my brother or my sister-in-law for this! They have said that we could call them up and come over, so it's my fault.

Anyways, today I was scheduled to work twice, haha, which reminds me.... Tuesday I thought I was supposed to work at 8 a.m. and at 3 p.m. and so I reluctantly woke up at 8:17 and went to work. Well, I got to Walmart and before I started actually stocking the shelves I looked at the schedule (The holiday schedule is always posted in the same book where I sign in) so before signing in I looked at it and it said I was only scheduled once for that day and that it was at 3 p.m., so I was a little upset at myself for writing my schedule down wrong in my calendar.

Anyways back to today, scheduled to work twice (8 a.m. and 3 p.m.) So of course I've been to the morning shift and got that done. It actually took me the whole hour to sign in, stock the bread, take the empties to the back, and sign out! I was shocked! It normally doesn't take me that long, but it's okay. The time was going by  at a good speed. After I signed out I had forgotten something in the back room so I went back in and ran into (not literally) my sister-in-law, Sarah, got to talk to her for a few minutes, which almost got her in trouble since she was at work (she likes to talk :P) Besides work I've ate, watched a few episodes of  Scrubs, and mowed the yard. I'm getting ready to head back to work (I'm allowed to go in early :D), but before I take off I'm going to throw a load of clothes in the laundry.

Hope you all have a fabulous day! God bless!
