Lazy Dazy

So today I am at work, not something I usually do on a Sunday. But duty and vacations call.
Not to complain, since by working today I got Wednesday off and was able to spend time with Mr.Wonderful and one of the two sweets. But let me tell you, I know now why I don't work weekends. They are boring!
Not one to complain because once I do I will be swamped with questions, and complaints and all the such that goes with the job.
I tried to get my work done, tried to get other work done, tried to make small talk with the staff, but MAN I AM BORED! Lazy Dazy no kidding.
I would even take a complaint right now, something to do, other than write a post that I probably should not be doing. But oh well, you leave me in charge for the day and this is what you get right?

So what should I be doing? Well since everything is done, I thought I would make some phone calls, look up some emails and then write what was going on. NOTHING.... Oh well I guess that since everyone else is out there enjoying the holiday weekend I would enjoy some down time. So here is my down time and here is my post.

Weekly Winners May 17th to 23rd

Questions that make you go Hummmmmm

So why is that my cute and adorable little 5 year old (almost 6) has gotten to be a sassy mouth? Why is that once she is home from school she has such a mouth on her that it makes me wonder who this kid is what they did with my cute, understanding, hug able, lovable little girl!

Well I thought I would go in search of some of the answers, and since my family just laughed when I asked them, I went to the next best place! Yep you got it the Internet. To be more direct I went to Mamapedia through another great resource Resourceful Mommy And what to my wondering eyes should appear is that there were 21 other mommas and daddies wondering the same thing! That it is not unusual for that cute and wonderful child to become Satin's Seed in just a few short seconds.

Huggy and cuddling one second and then you have to look twice to make sure that the wrong kid did not come in from outside or off the bus. Really I thought I was the only one out there with a kid who was Jyckal & Ms. Hyde. Really helped me and Mr. Wonderful know that there is light at the end of the rainbow, only that it will be a long year since most of the great advice out there said that it was a full year from 6 to 7 that their children where a cross between Chuckie and Snow White. Here is to hoping the little one is not like this and to a LONG year!

Time flys



Today was not like any other day, it was a day that I realized that my girls were growing up. As a mom you have little epiphanies now and again but they usually are not full blown to the point that it makes you stop in your tracks. But that was today, it was the realization that in less than 6 months both of my girls were going to be in school. That in less than 6 months when Mr. Wonderful and I had off during the week together there would not be a child to tend to, no one saying "Mommy" "Daddy" I want this or I need that or better yet no crying for us to decipher. Just us! Six years after the birth of our first child we will just be "us". I think that the next time I will encounter these feelings will be when they move out for "good". (By the way, does anyone really move out of their parents house?)

Today was a day that I saw the future, I saw two girls running from the bus trying to beat each other to the door, I saw two middle school girls fighting over the computer(when I was in school it was the phone), I saw two teenagers fighting over the same boys and friends and finally I saw two women, best of friends standing next to each other as they started their own lives, each their own ways but knowing that always they would be there for each other.

Time flys, and now I know that there will more of these moments as they grow but some how they might get easier!

Not Me Monday break....

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to">her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

So I did not think about taking a not me break today, then I did not feel guilty about not writing a post this last weekend, but I was not totally busy making my house look the best it has in 10 years (we have only owned it for 9)for MR. Wonderful's 5X5 party.

I also did not feel guilty that I was cursing Mr. Wonderful all day Saturday about why he had to have this party at our house. I was not delighted when he told me to go tanning and get out of his way so he and the girls would not clean the basement from stairs to movie room and back.

I also was not delighted to hear that the boss of Mr. Wonderful would be brining all the food and drinks for the party. Leaving me with the only job left, not cleaning of the house.

Since this was not to be a break from Not Me Monday, I have to say that I am not delighted that the house does not look like a picture out of a magazine nor does it smell wonderful. The outside does not hold one of the most beautiful hydranga plants in the front and a hibicus in the back, with potted plants complimenting the hydranga and lovely perrinials in the back. The yard was not cut and the kids did not have a blast.

Not Me Monday Mommy Edition

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Ok so this weekend was not too busy and it was not too emotional exhausting and it was not too insane that I was ready to go to work this morning.
This weekend was not full of rain in which I tried to make sure that the two girls were not driving me crazy because they could not go out side to play. Nor were they bugging Daddy to make sure that he gave me my Mother's Day gifts. Which I was not extremely excited about what I got.
Speaking of what I did not get, 200 minutes of pure unadulterated pleasure! I did not get 200 minutes of tanning. YES! 200 minutes of NO ONE knocking on the door asking me if they can have something, 200 minutes of no fighting, 200 minutes of me being completely alone, just me and the not so good for me tanning booth!
I also did not cry on the note with the perfect little pre-school and kindergarten hand prints. I also did not get the prettiest flower.
I have to admit that I did not have a wonderful weekend, I did not have the best mother's day outside of #1 and #2! Number 5 was wonderful! It was not a bummer that Mr. Wonderful had to work and therefore did not make the rest of the day insane crazy with running to make sure that we did not make it to the other mom's that made us who we are!

Thanks all and hope you had a not so great Mom's Day!

Not ME Mondays

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to">her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Ok so I did not spend most of my weekend wishing I had enough money to hire someone to Spring Clean it, and I definatly did not spend the other half of the weekend wishing I could make time stand still so I could do all the house work and still have enough time to spend with the girls.

I definatly did not make the hubby take the mower deck off and replace the blades so that I would not have to rake or sweep the lawn this summer. I also did not almost go crazy when we went to 5 different stores for an adaptor for a fish tank cleaner.

I also did not let the kids sleep for 4 hours on Saturday and then wait until almost 7pm to wake them up so we could go to the store to purchase said fish tank cleaner.

I also did not thank my lucky stars that my girls did not go through the "why" stage. And also did not thank those same lucky stars that my niece had to go through tons of ear plugs with her daughters consistent barrage of "whys".

In short there are many things I did not do this week and weekend but one thing I DID do, was to thank all the stars in heaven that I have the best family in the whole wide world!
Oh yeah, I also DID have a large bowl of Rocky Road ice cream for dinner! Yeah I DID that!
