Long weekend

This weekend was a long one. I had a show on Friday night, one on saturday (justice was with daddy all day and had a blast). They went to grandma and grandpa's house for grandpa's birthday party and he had so much fun with everyone. Then on Sunday me and justice went up to bellingham and made our rounds. It was fun and justice got to play with all the other kids and then he got to play with my little sister at my dad's house when we went there. It was a wonderful but long weekend.
Yesterday justice got sick in my car again, then on me and then on my glider chair. That was a fun mess to clean up. He is not sick I think when he got a hold of the destine creamy hinny cream, that he might have ate some. The poison control said that the only thing that it would do to him is make him sick, so I think that is what happened. Then when he got up from nap he wanted french fries I took him to dairy queen. Then off to home and waited for Aaron to get home so that I could head down south for cookie lee. I had a wonderful day and a very good weekend.

Friday, April 24, 2009

Today Justice will be going to aaron's parents house so that I can go and do my jewerly show in Smokey Point. He will have fun there playing while I am making some money. Other than that we have done some running around and getting some things done that needed to be done.
Last night we lost our power for about 3 hours it sucked and I felt kinda like I was Amish. I had made dinner for some friends for movie night. So we ate then it got dark so I lite candles and waited for the power to come back on. Justice did not understand that when the power is out we do not get to watch TV before bed so he kept going up to the TV pushing the button and telling me it was broke, yes hunny it is broke. Then he would tell me to get batteries he just did not understand that batteries was not going to make the TV work, but it sure was cute listening to him and watching him. We all got a kick out of him, then it was off to bed which he did not like since he has slept with music in his bedroom since he was born and it is always on, but I did not have batteries to put in his CD player to make it work so he had to go to bed in silence then when the power came back on I went in and tucked him in and turned on his music for him. He also sleeps with a night light and that did not work either so it was really dark in there. I felt bad but my little man needs his sleep too, so I was torn but he was a big boy and did a good job. Slept through the night and got up around 7 this mornign. He is now down for his nap and I am thinking that I am going to have to go and wake him up since we need to get going down south so I can drop him off and head to my show. Wish me luck and I hope I make some good money today and at my show tomorrow, we could really use it right now.

On another note this year I am excited for mother's day because Justice is getting old enough that we can do something for it. I think I would love to go to the park or something to spend time with my son and I would love something from his heart to his mommy for mother's day.

Cheaper Than Therapy


These are some pictures of Justice and his mommy and daddy. I love these pictures. I need to take some more recent ones though. These are the days to cherish.

Busy day

Today I have ran to the bank, taken a shower, got Justice his bath, feed breakfast, tried to get him to eat lunch, ran to another bank, then back to another bank, then to get coffee, to aaron's work to drop off coffee, stopped by a house that I would love to sell our house for and buy, got pot roast on for our Thursday night pot roast and movie night, started to clean the house, taken care of some of the animals, got the mail, did my Avon order, made my phone calls that needed to be made, got the schwans we needed from our driver, let Justice play outside for a little while (well in my truck because he loves to pretend that he is driving) and it is only noon.
Now I need to fold the pile of laundry that has taken over my bed and finish cleaning the house, make Justice eat lunch, work on some leads for cookie lee. Get things ready for my party tomorrow and on saturday. I need to get gas in my truck make sure dinner is done for dinner time and call some employees to get their weekly reports.
Other than that not much to do today and have not done that much. Justice is having a good day and for the second time this week he has slept until 8 o'clock in the morning. Wow am I lucky or what this has never happened. His two year old molars are finally coming in poor little man.

Yesterday we stayed home most if not all of the day other than going for a walk and doing things like that. I just was not in the mood to do anything outside of my house and the day before we stayed home the whole day because I had a migraine and just layed around and watched Justice play most of the day.

Today is a wonderful day and I love the time that I get to spend with my son. I am so glad and thankful that I get to be a stay at home/ Work at home mom, there is nothing in this world that I would change that for. It means everything to me that I have been around for my son and to watch him grow up and not miss a minuet of his life because they grow up so fast and before you know it he will be in school, then in college, then married and then children of his own.

Ok so now it is 3:20 and I have got the laundry done folded, put away, dinner is cooking and needs no tending to as it is in the crock pot, my emails done, avon order done, house cleaned, table washed, justice feed now it is almost dinner time, dishes done, and many other things done. Wow I feel like wonder women today as much as I have gotten done, oh yeah all the animals are taken care of and Justice is being my little helper today. It is so nice to be at home with my little man.

Juicy Juice

Juicy Juice selected me to do a house party. They sent me the supplies and the juice. The prizes the kids got were so wonderful and kids really liked them. The juice is awesome. They have immunity juice and brain development juice, it takes good and my son loves it. Which really impresses me since he is very picky. The juice has dha in it and other good things in it. So they are drinking something healthy without knowing it. I would recommend juicy juice to any parent that asks. I do not really like juice but this is something that I would drink too.



This is what I get for leaving brownies on the counter.

Wonderful Day

Today was one of those days I did not want to end. Me and Justice got up and got ready for the day and waited for poppy (my dad) to get here then off to get flower bulbs and lots of them. I know someone so I get thousands of dollars worth for free. It was fun and my dad was overwhelmed picking out what he wanted. Normally I just take them to him but this year I took him a long for the fun. He had fun and was not sure what to do at first. Justice rode in his stroller for a while then I let him loose and he had fun looking at all the flower bulbs and just running around. We then came home for nap time.
I worked outside for a while. Then I had to go threw the bulbs that I had gotten a separate them out for everyone I got them for.
Then we played outside all day. It was beautiful outside and warm, I did not want to come in but Justice was getting tired and grumpy. We cuddled on the couch and watched Sponged Bob and Mighty B before Justice headed off to bed.
I got a hot bath in tonight which felt so wonderful, now I think I might go to bed since I did not get any sleep last night. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as nice so we can outside some more

Friday night I threw Aaron and BBQ party for his birthday. We had a lot of fun with drinks, food fire and wonderful friends. Justice was up for a little while of it then I got him off to bed and then we all hung out outside. It was fun and it was nice to see friends we had not seen in a while and it was so much fun but we were up until 2 in the morning in the driveway

Saturday we ended up going to different places. Aaron had to go and help his brother move from his apartment to his house that they are renting. I had to go to my moms for my step dad and little brothers birthday party. Justice has so much fun and my grandparents were in town that we do not get to see as much as I would like. So it was so nice to spend time with them. Grandpa has also made books for all of the kids. Justice got mickey mouse and it is a Disney book that grandpa put his own special touch to. The book is designed that he needs to go threw the book and find a fish on each page, it is so cute. I love going to my moms because justice is able to play with kids his own age and run from inside to outside with out me having to follow him around since they go out on the porch and it is gated off so that they can not get off the porch.

Sunday we went to the street fair with my little sister and my step mom. It was so much fun. Justice has a lot fun looking at all the things. Grandma also ordered a puzzle for justice that is his name. We should have it in a couple of weeks and it is so cute. I can not wait to get it here. Justice got an ice cream cone today and an elephant. Then we walked home and played outside for a long time. Today has been beautiful and it was sure nice to spend time with my step mom and little sister, tomorrow I get to spend time with my dad he will be here bright and early in the morning.

Other than that this weekend has been wonderful and I loved every minuet of it.

Darn truck

I just found out that my truck in low on coolant and the brake light is burned out. I have a really nice Chevy silverado that is lowered on 20 inch rims and tires. I love my truck other than the the minor problems today, so when justice wakes up from his nap we will be going to see daddy at work and get those problems taken care of since my husband is the service writer for an automotive shop in burlington. His boss is really cool and my hubby likes what he does and that is what matters. Just hope that I do not get pulled over on the way to Aaron's work and get a ticket for a brake light being out. That would just be my luck though.

Ok so aaron fixed my trucks problems and no ticket or being pulled over on the way that made my day



On another note justice has been a stinker throwing his dinner on the floor, throwing a light bulb across the house, dumping his bubbles everywhere to be spiteful. He was just a handful today then he ran into a pole going into the house not looking where he was running. My son must take after me. Accident prone. Other than all of that we had a good day together. Like most. Played, ran around, cuddled, laundry, dishes, dinner and made macaroni salad for aaron's party that we are having tomorrow night. Oh yeah we went to the casino, (smokes), riverside dist (peppermint, white choc), costco, delivered avon books, daddies work, took miss hazel her mail which justice loves to do, and then home to play some more

mom blog
Is a wonderful blog that I have been following. Jacqueline Renner does some wonderful giveaways on her site. This time I won a $50.00 gift certificate to Photofiddle. I was able to have one of justice's pictures turned into an oil painting, I can not wait to get it.

Crappy day

Today just has not been a good day all around. I played outside with justice, did 5 loads of laundry, emptied the dishwasher, and then reloaded it, put the clothes away, cleaned the house, painted with justice, gave him two baths today, made some deliveries, ran out to meet a girl that wants to sign up with cookie lee, got dinner, blogged, then justice cut his head open and has been very grumpy all day. Oh yeah I worked in the backyard scooping dog poop now I need to go do it in the front yard. I need to go shopping to get the things I need for Friday night since we are having a big party for my hubbies 37th birthday. Other than that I have been doing things with justice like taking the little puppy for a walk, playing outside, feeding and wiping snooty noses, comforting tears away, cuddling, running to the bank. Now I now why I am so tired and ready for bed at 7:19. Justice's head is alright he is going to have a scar but it is not bad enough that he had to go the doctor.

The story there is I was using the rest room and little man wanted to be held. Well that is hard to do, so he got mad and ran out into the living room throwing a fit and banged on the TV and the candler holders fell and hit him in the head. I felt horrible. I cuddled with him then looked at it. Maybe a centimeter long and not very deep. It really did not bleed so I took him into the bathroom put some hydrogen peroxide on it then neosorine. I then made many calls to see if I should take him to the doctor and decided that it was just a flesh wound and not to.

Then daddy got home from work, justice was excited to see him. I left to run another errand and justice stayed home to play with daddy. We then ate dinner, got justice off to bed.

Feeling better

Today justice was feeling a little better, so after our shower we left and did some avon deliveries and ran and saw daddy at work. He was so happy to get out of the house and so was I. We also played outside today for a while and just had fun. We layed around the house some today but nothing like we had done the days before. He still sounds congested and coughs and has a runny nose but that is nothing compared to what he has been like. Justice also called my step dad don and told him birthday which was so cute since it was don's birthday today. Happy birthday pappa. Other than that we did not do that much it was a nice day where we could get out of the house for a while and make some money. I do not like being cooped up for that many days on end. I was ready to go and play in the freeway just for some entertainment in my life since I had not had any for several days. I could not handle looking at the walls of my house for one more minuete. It was driving me nuts and it was driving Justice nuts too because he was going stir cray having to stay in the house, he would ask "momma bye bye" and I would have to tell him no because he was sick and that just plain sucked since I knew that he wanted to get out of the house but I did not want to haul our sick little boy out unless I really had to.

Aaron was a trooper this whole time of justice being sick. He stayed home with us on easter and cuddled and played with justice. On monday he had to go back to work but he talked to justice on the phone something that justice loves to do and then he came home and cuddled with justice before bed. Then when I carried Justice to bed like every night aaron was chasing him down the hall. It is something that started a while ago in my house and makes it hard to get Justice to bed when daddy is not here because he wants daddy to chase him, but when I tell him daddy is not home then it is alright I guess.

Just another day in paradise with my family and some quality play time with my little man. Just the way that I love life.

Easter

This year for Easter me, Aaron and justice stayed home because justice is really sick. He just layed around the house all day. Justice did get his Easter basket and he was excited about the things that he had gotten. It was a relaxing day of snot and fevers and vicks baby rub.

Sick boy

Today I had a show to do so we headed down south so that justice could go to the grandparents while I went and did my show. On the way there well actually I was almost there he got sick in my car several times. He covered himself, car seat, floor, and me, needless to say we are home, he is sleeping and I had to clean up the gross mess. I feel so bad for him and I rescheduled my party for another day. I hope my little man feels better soon. I really do not like it when he is sick because I am not sure how to make him feel better and it is no fun when you are so little and your tummy is sick.
Ok so as the day went along justice got worse and I took him to the doctor where he got sick in my car again and then in the parking lot. He has the flu and is not getting any better. They told me that if I can not get him to drink tonight I will need to take him back in the morning and put him on IV because he is getting dehydrated. I did bu Tylenol since his temp has been between 103.5 - 102.6 and staying. Poor little guy. We got home and tried to give him some tylenol and he got sick again all over him the blanket and the couch this time. I feel so bad for him. I waited till aaron got home and he gave him so more tylenol and he kept it down. He did want to eat something so I gave him some chicken fries since that is whats he wanted. I hope he keeps it down. He still has not drank anything and I am getting worried. I do not want to have to have him go on an IV. I put him to bed with a cup of pedialight and I hope he will drink it. Pray for him to drink and feel better. I wish that he did not have to be sick to cuddle all day, but I got to hold my baby all day and that was wonderful just crappy reasons why. The doctor did tell me that we needed to stay home all weekend so me and justice will be home all weekend. We will spend easter together and try to get him healthy again.

Tonight after justice got ready and went to bed. I have been working. I am busy when he is sleeping since it is hard to get things done while he is awake. He likes to help so I do not always get as much done as I had hoped so I work during nap time and then when he is in bed for the night. I try to crack out as much as I can so there is not as much left over for the next day. I wear many hats and try to do as much as I can to make money for our family. It might not always work the way that I want but I do the best that I can.
This afternoon justice wanted to go in the backyard again and play where he can see the big dogs. He is starting to get more daring by going right up to the fence and talking to them, but he still is scared of all dogs other than puppy, which is his dog that lives in the house with us. Puppy was named by justice and is a cheweenie. He is so cute and such a wonderful dog to justice. They love each other and the puppy goes almost everywhere with us. This picture is not the best but it is justice and the puppy a while ago when we first got the puppy.

I am going to get ready to go to bed since Justice gets up early. Lately he has been getting up around 7:30 in the morning and it sure has been nice to sleep in an extra hour, maybe someday I can sleep till 8 or maybe even 9, just one day but I am not holding my breath on that.

From Mommy To Mom To Mother

CAREFULLY READ THE LAST ONE IN RED!!!


MOTHERS

Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'
Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.....
4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom .
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!


This is something that I thought was wonderful for all moms to read. Because it is so true.

Today is one of those days that I just want to lay around the house. Me and justice have not done much of anything today and I am going to keep it that way. I am tired and I just feel drained. I am not so sure why but I am. I do have a party this week so I need to get things ready for that and for justice to go to the grandparents and my avon order is due tonight but I think I will worry about all of that later.
Yesterday me and justice played outside all day. He was playing with the water facet and a bucket and he had so much fun. I do not mind letting him play in the water. We played in the back yard since that is where he wanted to be, we normally do not play back there because the big dogs bark the whole time, but the actually stopped barking after a while. Justice and puppy ran around the yard and played in the water. I just sat in the grass and watched him and really enjoyed myself. I love those moments in time where you can just sit and watch your child play.
When Aaron got home from work last night, justice did his normal rockie with me then cuddle with daddy and just went back and forth. Then it was off to bed, not a peep out of my little man. It was amazing. He must have been whiped because one of us always has to go in there at least once if not multiple times.

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

I am redoing my page and I have lost somethings I am going to try to get everything back up tonight. Sorry about it and I will work had on this.

I never thought that blogging would be something that I would like, but I have falling in love with it. Today is my 102 post and I wish I had something to review and giveaway for all of my wonderful friends that I have made, but I do not, so I just wanted to say thank you for reading about my life.

Good news

As far as my step moms appointment that said that everything is OK and they want to recheck her in 3 months They said that the cyst in her brain was normal and everyone has one but hers is just a little bigger than everyone else's. I am not so sure what all this means and why she feels the way that she does but as far as this news goes it is good news in my book. I was so relieved when they showed up at my house and told me that news.
Justice had a good day playing with antie jaryn and me. He helped washed my car and he got antie jaryn all wet and himself too, but it was really warm out today so it was fun. We also played in the house and blew bubbles outside. He was a really good boy and had a lot of fun with his antie. He was really wexcited when they got here to get antie because he loves his grandma and poppie

Busy weekend

This weekend was a really busy one. Friday we had our first BBQ and fire of 2009. It was fun but it sure got cold out around 11:00. I was ready to come in and get under my heated blanket and get warm. I think we came in the house around 11:30 and it was off to bed for me.
Saturday I had the annual garage sale to do for cookie lee and it was nothing like it was in the past. Not very many people and things just did not sell like they should have. I also did not very many people interested in joining my team which sucks because I would really like to promote this month. Justice got to stay home with daddy all day. They did walk down and see me once during the day which sure was nice. Other than that I am not too sure what the two of them did all day.
Sunday was Aaron's 37 birthday so we went to my grandma's, then to my mom and then down to his parents for his birthday. It was a good but busy day.
Today I am at home with my little man, waiting for my sister to get here since my step mom has be appointment today and I said I would take jaryn while they went, so here we sit and wait to find out what is going to happen to sandy. I am scared



I was nominated by Shari over at A psych mommy, I just love her blog and her son Mr. Bean is just too cute.



Admit one thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are No Longer allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!

I feel bad that sometimes I would rather just relax then play with my son. Being a mom 24/7 just is a lot of work and there are days when I want to stay in bed all day long and not get up and have to tend to everything. There are also days when I really just want some me time, but being a full time mommy that does not happen. I love my son and would not trade him in for anything in the world but there are days when I need to do something for myself. When he goes off to school I will get that time

Remind yourself you are a good mom, list seven things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself everyday that you Rock!

1. I love cuddling with justice in the morning
2. I love the way that his little face lights up when I come into the room
3.I love it when he says momma
4. I love playing and reading to him
5. I love the kisses and Hugs I get all day long
6. I love taking walks with him
7. I love holding my little mans hand

Send this to five other Mom's of the year that deserve credit for being great moms and remind them that they are the best moms they can be!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you.

Tonight I started to paint our master bedroom, since my son had colored the walls with a green sharpie and my head board and my computer desk. Oh yeah and a blanket that is on our bed that my husband's grandma made him when he was little. Oopps. I needed to paint my room any way as I have lived here for 6 years and I have painted the whole house but our room. Thank you Justice for the extra push today to get it done. I have half the room done and I will do the other half over the next few days as there is so much furniture in our room that we have to move it and I can only do a little bit at a time then wait for it to dry then move the furniture back and so on. Tonight I got the wall that bed is on and the window, well half of that wall, the whole wall where our closet is at and half of the wall where our door is at. I think when I finish our room I will do our bathroom because that really needs to be done too. I am miss home improvements tonight. I also need to get some new blinds for our room and a valence, I might go look tomorrow for that.
Justice was a stinker today, he colored on the wall and all over my room, ran out the door and into the middle of the street so he got a swat for that one as I was running after him and yelling and he would not stop. He threw fits today just because, head butted me and split the inside of my lip open and it sure hurts. This is my son I love him and would not trade him for anything in the world and I am truely thankful for him, but I wish sometimes he would listen and be a little nicer to me. He did cuddle with me today a few times. Today was an eventful day and I got a lot done. I am proud of myself.
I am really worried right now as my step mom goes to the hospital on monday to find out what they are going to do about her brain tumor. I hope that this is something that they can fix and not have any side effects because I love her and do not want to see anything bad happen.
I am looking forward to sunday my hubby turns 37 boy is he getting old. I will get to see my neice for the first time since I have been sick since she was born. We will also be going to my mom's for lunch and so that I can get some work done, then off to aaron's parents for dinner for his birthday. It should be a good day that we get to spend together the whole day which does not happen that often anymore. Justice will like it because he likes when daddy goes places with us.
Tomorrow me and justice will find something fun to do maybe if it is nice I will take him to the park, just no coloring on the walls.

Sick again

Yesterday I was sick all day again and the night before I slept on the bathroom floor because I felt so terrible. I wish that this sickness would leave my house and no come back, I know that little man is going to get it soon since I seem to not be able to get over it.
Today justice woke up and yelled momma for sometime before I decided to get out of bed. We made some deliveries today but other than that not much of anything. I really want to have another lazy day but I know that is not possible I have too many things to get done. I need to catch up on house work, laundry, justice already got his bath, already delivered avon books, but still a lot to do and I do not want to do any of it.
