Our First Stitches

Well, It's O.F.F.I.C.I.A.L....he's a boy!!! We got our first (of many I am assured) set of stitches Friday night. Nice Huh??? He was jumping on the couch...first of all I said JUMPING.ON.THE.FLIPPIN.COUCH. and hit a piece of metal that I had put on the couch to keep him from using it as a weapon against his sister

~~aside here~~ he loves to hear his sisters scream any which way he can..he found a metal bar that goes in the closet and likes to chase them around to hear them yell...I can put it up..he'll find it...BRAT~~aside over~~

Anywho...he hit the metal bar and GASHED his toe..may I add...ONE bite into dinner...off to the ER...he was GREAT at the ER..hardly any crying..until they put lidocaine into the cut to numb it...then he wanted to fight us (and the 2 med techs) until he got up and he could see them stitching...

Steven says on the way home (he almost cried by the way--Steven that is NOT Connor)..."He's such a little man, a trooper, I was afraid his sisters were going to take his 'man gene's' away from him..I'm glad to see they didn't.." followed by a little snorting and coughing from me...

Next Post...our new addition to the family...... ;)

Rubber Ducky

Last night I went to 'Love Bunco' and we of course give gifts at the end..So, since it was a 'Love' themed Bunco we gave Love themed gifts...mine was a Rubber Ducky..exactly like the one above. Woohoo...I think my new theme song may be:

Rubber Ducky, you're the one,
You make bathtime lots of fun,
Rubber Ducky, I'm awfully fond of you;

Woo woo be doo

Rubber Ducky, joy of joys,
When I squeeze you, you make noise!
Rubber Ducky, you're my very best friend, it's true!

Doo doo doo doo, doo doo

Every day when I
Make my way to the tubby
I find a little fella who's
Cute and yellow and chubby


Rubber Ducky, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber ducky, I'm awfully fond of you.

Every day when I
Make my way to the tubby
I find a little fella who's
Cute and yellow and chubby

Rubber Ducky, you're so fine
And I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber ducky, I'm awfully fond of -
Rubber ducky, I'd like a whole pond of -
Rubber ducky I'm awfully fond of you!

Doo doo, be doo

You too can get your own Rubber Ducky at amazon.com I've thoughtfully put the link in so you can just click and order...Now if I knew how to add music--hold on see if this works..

So, anyone out there have a maid I can borrow for the day????

I have a Spice It Up party tommorrow..(Go on take a look there's some deliciously naughty stuff in there) ;)...and I CAN.NOT for the life of me get this damn house clean...I clean---they mess up..clean--mess...clean---mess..well you get the idea. I have about 10-15 or so people coming over and it's never going to get clean. It would help if certain people and I agreed on what clean was.

Tonight I'm going to play 'Love Bunco' LOL..it's naughty week here apparently. I won't tell you what's going to happen afterword but ho hum...:D..

I have a confession to make...I.AM.NOT.ONE.OF.THE.'COOL'.KIDS. I NEVER have been. I try so hard to be friends with people only to see other people--and here's another BIG confession for ya--people I don't feel are worthy make friends. Who am I to judge these other people though??? I guess my big problem is I try too hard. If you are my friend I will move heaven and earth for ya and expect nothing very little from you in return..Maybe just a call every once in a while--someone to laugh with and hang out with..I don't know something.

I'm beginning to think it's ME. S told me the other day I always HAD to have someone at every base I dislike and am fighting with, and then I'm like a RABID DOG..I want to make their life hell..I just can't let it go. I strive to see them fail--and when they don't (which they never do) I just keep watching..like it's a trainwreck.

I'm thinking of pulling myself out of all the little "social" groups I do here--OCSC (Officers Civilian's Spouses Club), Squadron Wive's Club, and well anything..because I just cannot deal with HER...Every time I see her I want to smack her face. This can't be healthy for me. I need to learn to FORGIVE and FORGET but it's so hard when every-flippin-time you turn around she's there. It doesn't help the ONE good friend (or I thought she was my friend) I have here has decided to be her friend and doing alot of things with her--and because me and her don't get along--I don't get invited or well they try to hide it from me.

Tell me I'm not just crazy...that you've had someone you've felt like this about before..even if it was me Toni ;)...

Love Week...

It's Valentine's Week so I'm naming it LOVE WEEK here at Mom's..

"Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone--we find it with another." -- Thomas Merton

Today: Do you believe in Destiny???

The dictionary defines destiny as:

des·ti·ny /ˈdɛstəni/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[des-tuh-nee] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun, plural -nies.
1. something that is to happen or has happened to a particular person or thing; lot or fortune.
2. the predetermined, usually inevitable or irresistible, course of events.
3. the power or agency that determines the course of events.
4. (initial capital letter) this power personified or represented as a goddess.
5. the Destinies, the Fates.

The second definition is what I'm talking about today...Is my life predetermined?? If I had chose A instead of B would I still be in the exact same position???

I'm kinda on the fence about it..I believe I still would've married Sheldon and then Steven...Kat, Liz and Connor were predestined to be my children. (Lucky them I know). BUT here's where I differ. I believe that you have choices with your life that everything isn't predetermined..Otherwise where would free will come in???

I find it hard to believe that some of the things I've gone through and put up with in my life were predetermined for ANYONE. What about things like Cancer and Aids??? Were these predetermined for someone to get or (in the case of Aids) was it YOUR choices that you used YOUR own free will to make that caused you to get the disease.

What do you think was your life predetermined???

2nd Post of the Day--don't fall over...

Kat's grades this quarter/semester:

Beginning Band...C Overall: C

Integrated Science: F Overall: D

Language Arts: B- Overall: B+

Mathematics: C+ Overall: B-

Physical Ed: B- Overall: B

Social Studies: D Overall: C

someone's not doing homework or turning it in...So NOT my favorite child right now...So, how do I punish her??

A. She wants to have a birthday party--take it away?? BUT she hasn't had a birthday party in 4 years...

B. Kill her?? I think that's illegal...so it's out

C. Beat her into submission? again I believe illegal..also out.

D. Take away ALL priveledges?? She has none...I think I'm going to ground her from TV on the week days, and well anything that sounds fun...

However, I'm still on the fence on the birthday party....I really want her to have one because she's getting at that age where she wants a "social" life...BUT I don't want to reward her for her grades or recent behaviour. GAW...someone help...Calgon take me AWAY!!

New Questions from 100!!

2. If you could do 1 thing in the world before you die, what would it be?

Only one thing huh??? Let's see I think what I'd really like to do is to travel the world on a cruise ship...sipping pina coladas, and margaritas by the pool ..not having to cook...

3. Which one of your kids is your favorite child, and why?

Boy that's a hard one..Honestly it's whatever one is listening--and not making a big ole mess for me to clean--or hey helping me pick up their mess...(Wait that might just be a wish...)

4. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Well, saying I HAVE to grow up...I want to be Tinkerbell...ok no really I want to be a psychologist..I just love to get into people's head's..they are SOOO interesting.

5. If you had $100K, and could do anything you wanted, name the top five things you'd buy/do. In order

Becky's Cooking Tips #1

When trying to make Fried Chicken--MAKE SURE...the grease isn't too hot..otherwise you'll burn said fried chicken and smoke everyone out of the house building. Plus it's not fun when the firemen are laughing at you on the phone.

Better to just go get a bucket of KFC and said you made it..MUCH easier on everyone!!!

~~I'm just saying~~~
