Cleaning Day

     Have you ever noticed that you have a specific day that you seem to want to clean more? I have. My day is Friday. The only bad thing about the day that my mind/body chose is that I'm completely busy on Fridays ( at least during the hours I'd want to clean ) 

    Now part of me thinks that it's that day because I'm already busy therefore I have an excuse for not cleaning, I had work. Or maybe that's just the day that I see fit for cleaning, I don't know. 

     Today, to be honest, I would have much rather stayed home and done some MUCH needed cleaning. But we need the money and my family needs someone in the "shop" ( office ) 

     You'd think out of all the other days and all the "spare" hours that I have that I would have a spotless house, my 1 year old doesn't really do spotless or sitting still so that I can clean lol. I have so much laundry that needs put up that I have a mountain of clothing in my room, all my clothing, luckily Miles puts up his own clothes and most of the time he'll put up Seth's too. 

     All this brings me to some good news! Miles is going to be going to 2nds in January! Hopefully with him home and helping to watch Seth I'll be able to get more done! Cross fingers, knock on wood, and whatever else I can do to make that happen lol. 

       I hope you all had a great Christmas and that you're having a great day today :)

Follow Up Doctor Appt.

      Almost 2 weeks ago I had my follow up appointment with my doctor about my antidepressant (escitalopram generic of lexapro). 

      Basically all he asked was if it was working and if I was still having any side effects from it. 

     After asking those questions he talked to me about the length of time that people stay on this medication and why. Basically they found that keeping a person on this medicine for 9 months to a year gets rid of the depression completely. After that period of time a person can decide if they want to go off of it and see how it goes or if they can decide not to rock the boat and stay on it, either way is fine. He didn't ask me to decide right then and there, but I did make up my mind when I was there. I'm going to take it for a year then go off of it an see how it goes. If I don't need it great, if I do than I do. 

     There's been one hard thing about being on these pills (besides the first 2 weeks) and that's realizing that you're still going to have bad days. Why? Because you're human. I may be having a great day one day and be in an awful mood the next day. Antidepressants aren't meant to put us on a permanent high, they're meant to help you deal with the hard days better than you did before aka instead of wanting to kill your spouse you may now just want to slap them lol. 

     Sorry it took me so long to post. Hopefully after the Holidays I'll be able to get a better blogging schedule. And find other things to blog about. Maybe something interesting with pictures! Lol. 

    I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And of course good mental health :)

Seth Update

     So I haven’t talked about Seth in a while. So how about an update on him? Sound good? I thought so.


     For those of you who don’t know, Seth was born on September 27, 2012. This makes him 1 year, 2 months, and so many days lol.

     He’s been walking since 8 ½ months. He started running not to long after that. Now he’s “faster than a speeding bullet” and hard to catch.

      He loves to get into things (What kid doesn’t? lol.) Plants, food, bowls, lids, pots and pans, laundry, the litter box(Eww, eww, eww, eww!), you name it.

    He has 8 teeth. He’s had these teeth for a while now and I see no signs of any others popping out soon, but all babies are different so we’ll see.

     He loves potatoes; mashed, baked, fried, etc.; Daddy, mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa; Waving to complete strangers as if he’s seen them every day of his life. He loves to be held, hugged, kissed, and cuddled; watching TV, playing with cars, books and in bath time. He loves to be loud and strut his stuff, yes he’s 1 and he struts. It’s adorable! He loves to chase the cats and be around any animals that are near. He also loves to snack ALL DAY LONG!

    He hates beans; refried, ham and beans beans, etc. I can’t say I blame him for this I didn’t like beans so much as a kid either. He hates when Daddy is home and isn’t playing with him. The boy LOVES his daddy! He hates that the cats won’t let him pick them up. He HATES leaving Grandma and Grandpa’s house or them leaving our house. He cries and screams and it’s sad because he’s sad, but adorable because he loves them so much. When they come over he points out the door as if to say “Ok, let’s go. I’m coming with you!” Lol.

    He is definitely all boy. Tools, cars, machinery, vroom vroom sounds, wrestling with dad, action movies, sports, etc. it’s his thing.

    There is rarely a day that he is shy. He flirts with the female cashiers at Walmart, waitresses, random women. It’s adorable, for now. I’m sure I’ll have a hard time when his flirting might actually result in a relationship. YOU CAN’T HAVE HIM HE’S MINE! I’m keeping him forever! Lol. I wish.

    Today for the first time we gelled his hair into a fo-hawk (whatever the correct spelling)  It is so adorable, but I’m wondering how long it will stay that way. 

     Well, I can’t think of anymore to say at this moment, but feel free to ask me a question if I forgot something that you’d like to know. (Comments below)


    Hope you’re all having a great day!

Work Well

     Most days at work the day just drags on. I’m talking about work on Fridays at the Motel. I have people coming in and out to pay rent, fill out applications, ask questions, a couple people that come in to get their mail, people filling out leases, etc. It’s never the same amount of people. Some days I’m swamped with people all day long with only minutes in between and other days I might as well be sitting in a cemetery.


    Today I didn’t have a lot of people coming in, but it still seemed to go by quickly! Thank God!!

   It’s not a hard job by any means and most of the time I like working here.. Well, as much as you can like getting up out of your nice, warm bed and going somewhere besides the recliner at this “early” in the morning. My early is like10am lol. I don’t seem to function right until sometime after 10. But I get up on Fridays at 8:30 and get to the Motel around 9:45, open at 10. 5 hours of work like this really isn’t difficult most days. As long as I’m not swamped or as long as the day isn’t dragging it’s “a piece of cake” I’ve got a great boss *wink* (For those of you who don’t get that my stepdad is my boss lol) (And he is a great guy)

    You know family owned and operated businesses really are great, it’s a shame that you can’t find many family businesses anymore. Just saying.

    My job consists of filing things, dusting, vacuuming, taking out trash, doing dishes,  doing laundry (wash, dry, fold, and put away), receiving rents, complaints, maintenance issues, signing leases, delivering mail, some computer work, trying to keep things organized (Not an easy job around here!), etc. None of it is hard. Although filling out a lease when you can’t seem to keep track of what you’re doing and having a hard time remembering things is complicated. You have to fill it out, explain it to them, have them sign, go over some rules, tell them where things are, make sure to copy their ID, get their rent and deposit, and give them the keys. It doesn’t really sound that hard, but when your head is pounding and your mind is on 50 different things it gets a lot harder. So now you know basically everything that my job consists of. Jealous? Lol. I’ve been working here since December of 2010. The longer you’re here the more things you have to learn, but there’s only so much you can do in 5 hours with people coming in and out.


    I had a great day. Hubby brought me Chinese! He’s so great. He can be a butthead, but he can be really sweet too. I got to see my sister for like ½ a second lol. I got a break from my adorable, but frustrating little boy. Sure did miss him while I was working.  And I felt like I accomplished quite a bit while working, but most of it is unfortunately not in noticeable things :/


     Well, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Do something fun for me! LOL.

I have an addiction!

   I'm here to confess that I have an addiction. Scared? I'm not! It's a good addiction! 

    I'm addicted to salads! Every single day I NEED a salad. I've noticed if I don't have a salad I get to feeling funny. I feel so good eating something that is so healthy (at least way healthier than my normal food) I still eat some normal unhealthy foods, but I've found that I prefer salads.  

      Give me a bowl, lettuce, green onions, tomatoes, green pepper, red pepper, croutons, some ground pepper, and Olive Garden dressing or Sweet and Tangy French dressing and I'm in heaven! I could literally have this salad for every meal of the day and be perfectly happy! 

      I've also noticed that I've lost some weight so of course that's a plus! I love healthy addictions! How come I can't have more of them?!

      Anyone else have any healthy addictions they'd like to share? I'd love to find another healthy addiction to add to my list!
