Hiya everyone! I hope your all having a great weekend so far. We got moved and are settling fine. When everything is put away I will take some pictures for you all to see. My daughter is really happy to be back in the city where all of her friends are, and she will not have to switch schools this year which she is really happy about also. We have gotten about 75% of her school supply shopping done but still need to get her school clothes. Same for my son.
My quit smoking is going terrible! :( I wish I could say I was done but I can't. Life's stresses seem to be never ending and it makes it SO hard to quit. I know that those of you who don't smoke will say that is just an excuse (which it is lol) but it is very true. When every part of my life seems to be flying all different directions it makes it VERY hard to not do one of the things that gives me a few minutes to myself everyday through out the day.
Sometimes I wonder if being a wife, mom, ect means that you give up all sense of privacy?? Can some other moms and wives answer this question for me? I go to the bathroom and someone is there or will just come in (I don't do this to them). I take a shower and someone is standing there trying to talk to me or get my attention ( I do not usually do this to them), I wake up and have always demanded at least 10 minutes to myself and that seems to be alot to ask sometimes also. My head literally feels like it just might explode when I just roll out of bed and someone in my house starts talking to me right away. I just wonder if I am honestly asking to much to have 30 minutes to myself while I shower, or 5 minutes while in the bathroom. I wonder why it is that everyone seems to think I do not want to shut it all away during those supposed to be private times? I honestly cannot even say that it always bothers me, because it doesn't just some days it really rubs me the wrong way.
I always try to keep my chin up and keep trucking forward no matter what the situation but since this stuff with my mom happened it has really been hard. I do keep going because I have no choice, but man oh man am I tired ya'll! What I would give to be totally 100% taken care of for like a week. To not have to remember everything, to not have to clean, or cook, or run to the store, or make calls, or a few day break from my son who I love with every thing inside myself but am tired because we have very little outside help from anyone. And if I cannot even trust him with my own mother who the hell can I trust him with? There is truly not a person (other than Rayanna and hubby) who truly understands what our daily life is like with Josh. Some have an idea from being around or hearing us talk, but noone understands how hard it can be. Yet everytime you look at him and see all he is doing it is awesome considering we were told "IF he made it he would never walk, talk, see, hear, eat by mouth, he would be a vegetable". So please do not think I complaining about being his mother. I am not in any way shape or form complaining, I am just admitting I am so tired. You know when I look back at my whole life I truly have NEVER been taken care of the way a young girl or young lady should be taken care of. I have fended for myself pretty much always. Vent over..........
So my subject line I am sure your wondering about? Last night hubby and I picked his 15 year old son up to spend a few days here. On the way home we were talking about just random stuff. His son says "I never make my bed, I do not see the point when I am just going to sleep in it again that night". SOOO my hubby comes up with this analogy for him (CAN YOU SAY OMG!?).....
You like girls, it is safe to say that you will never be with any guys. Yet when you shower you wash your butt right?"
His son and I were like Huh??
Hubby says "Well that was the only thing I could think of to get my point across. Meaning, even though it is safe to say noone is going near your butt you still wash it when you shower right? Same goes for your bed" lmao!
I said "Nice analogy hunny!!"
His son was like omg dad!
Gotta love him lmao ;)
I made a yummy roast in the crockpot today. It cooked all day and Mmmmm was it good tonight for dinner!
Next weekend we are going to our upper tribe's Pow Wow. On Monday I am dropping Ray off at my other daughter Lexi's house and Tuesday morning they are going on a tribal supervised camping trip in Iowa. They will have to hike 2 hours to thier campsite and then will spend the night and hike back the following afternoon. Sounds fun.
I have been thinking about getting a job when my kids go back to school in a few weeks. Just something to do for me, and the extra money could never hurt lol.
I do not know if I told you all but where we moved back to in Eden Prairie is literally two houses away from where we were last school year. We are in a townhouse but it is much bigger than the other we were in. It is close to 3000 square feet and 4 bedrooms instead of 3. The whole unit is higher end I guess you would call it. The nice dark cherry hard wood floors, the same with the kitchen cabinets. Our bedroom is huge we have a couch in it and a california king bed with plenty of room to spare. Just overall it is way bigger. It was funny when we got back because the neighbor who used to be on the left of us is now on the right and he said "You musta missed me!" when he saw we were back. Another cool family directly across the street came over and was great also. Even though their house was completed 2 days ago so they moved into it yesterday. They will have us over for dinner when they are settled.
Before we moved into our place last week a MN Viking lived here and he did a number on the walls lol! They are all getting repainted this next week. He was a cool guy though, we met him while we were here before.
Well I think that's it for tonight. I am off to make a couple tags I think and switch the laundry. I am also painting two canvases for my son's Cars room that I may start tonight.
I am pretty sure alerts are not working or very rarely so hopefully some of you will get this alert ;)
Love and hugs,
