Just One of Those Days

I'm having one of those days. You know the kind where you can't say or do anything right. I feel just horrible. Earlier we (me & Jaxon) we're cleaning Jaxon's room and I found myself sitting in the middle of the room with all the mess around me and just broke down and started crying. How did I let his room get like this? What kind of mother am I? I was thinking about my messy house, the boys, myself. What on earth is going on with me? EVERYTHING is a total disaster and I can't seem to fix the mess I've made. UGH!

Well I'm off to do some more laundry. Hopefully I don't mess that up. Thanks for listening to my personal pity party. Hope y'all have a great Friday and weekend.

Bad Baby!

The other day I was doing laundry and the boys were playing. I walked back through the living room and I asked Ethan and Jaxon where Evan was. As soon as he heard me say his name, Evan came running into the living room from the kitchen with two crayons in his hands. I asked him what he was doing and all he said was, " Uh-oh, bad babies." Then he ran back into the kitchen and of course I followed him and this is what I found...

The little stinker decided to color my kitchen floor. Me and Jaxon (who's found a new love for cleaning) scrubbed the floors and got the crayon off. Evan was so mad that we cleaned up his master piece. He started throwing a fit!!!

Some good news...we sold our pool table yesterday. We got more than we asked for and they even broke it down and took it with them last night! Woohoo! To bad the money is already spent (Justin's getting the new iPhone)! Oh well! Hope y'all have a happy Thursday!

Wordless Wednesday! (kind of)

Sunday I was making chicken fried chicken for dinner and I had to put an apron on so the oil wouldn't splatter all over my shirt. Since Jaxon decided to be my dinner helper he had to go find himself an apron too. He came back into the kitchen wearing his tool apron.

He looked too cute, so I had to take a picture of him. He had to flex that way he would look tough in his apron! Ha!

I just linked this post to Take It From Me:Welcome Wednesday! I just love meeting new bloggers!!!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Not much going on here lately. Just cleaning, laundry and boys!!! Yesterday after Ethan got home from school the sky opened up and we had ourselves a mini flood (not really, but it felt like it). Since I couldn't kick the boys outside, I let them play in the garage. They decided to make some bottle bots (that's what they called them) with the plastic bottles from the recycle bins.

They were so proud of what they made (I think Ethan made them both). Of course the excitement of the bottle bots didn't even last an hour and then they were back to the usual..."I'm bored!" I guess it was nice while it lasted! Ha!

Hope y'all are having a great Tuesday and not a boring one!!!

Miscellany Monday

Well it's Monday again people and I've decided to play along at lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday!!!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. It's a stormy Monday over here! I just love thunderstorms. Last night it was lightening so bad our lights blinked and my exercise bike started to beep and go off. The weird thing is my bike is battery operated!!! Crazy right!

2. We've finally decided to sell our pool table. We want to turn our garage into a play room for the boys. So if ya want one and can come pick it up I'll give you a real sweet price on it!

3. I hate it, HATE IT, when Justin isn't home. I understand that he has to go to work or we would be out on the streets and starving, but for some weird reason I just don't like it here without him. Funny?! I know, he's only at work for 8 hrs, but it just seems soooooo long!

4. Just two questions...Why are boys so stinky? Why are boys so messy? UGH!!!

5. I've started to take the Woman's One A Day Vitamins Energy and so far I'm loving them. I've noticed I'm not that sluggish anymore! Woohoo!!!

For more Miscellany Monday head over to check out Carissa's blog and link up. Hope y'all have a happy Monday!

Yesterday was horrible. My allergies were so bad. I felt like I had the flu minus the fever. UGH! I felt fine as long as I was sitting still, but as soon as I got up to do anything my body would ache horribly. Since I really couldn't do anything Evan decided he could run a muck! Ha! I noticed it got really quiet so I went looking for him and this is what I found.

He had put the dog in the swing and turned it on and he was sitting in the tubs watching her. It was so funny!

Today I feel a little better, but still have body aches. Hope this goes away soon. Maybe it's all this humidity and rain we've been getting. Oh well! btw - Please excuse the way my blog is looking. I'm working on figuring out a new background. I really need to save up some extra money and finally have one made for me, but until then free will do!!! Hope y'all have a great Friday!

Wordless Wednesday!

Evan decided that he was Mr. Cool yesterday wearing his daddy's safety glasses!!!

I'm feeling like crappola today. My allergies are kicking my booty. Normally they wear off by the afternoon and that's what I'm hoping for. Hope y'all are having a great Wednesday!!!

Summer School

Yesterday was Ethan's first day of summer school and let's just say it was tough! He didn't want to wake up. It took me a little over 20 minutes to get him up to get dressed. He cried and pouted, but I finally got him there. He only goes Monday-Thursday 8-12 for three weeks. Poor Evan was lost without Ethan at home. He kept looking in his room for him and calling his name. It was so sweet, but then I thought what on Earth is he going to do when the school year really starts and Jaxon is gone too.

Evan was so happy when Ethan got home. He wouldn't leave him alone.

Ethan of course was still in a bad mood and mad at me for making him go. Like I had a choice!

Luckily he got out of his funk because I let him go play pool in the garage. Today was much better. He woke up fine and he said he had a good time at school today too. Praise the Lord! Hope y'all are having a great Tuesday and not having to deal with any funky children! Ha!

Miscellany Monday!

Carissa over at lowercase letters is having a Miscellany Monday and I've decided to play along today!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I've figured out that if I don't get at least 9 hours of sleep I'm not a happy camper. I'm sluggish, grumpy and I don't want to do ANYTHING! Ugh!

2. The best feeling in the world is when your baby falls asleep in your lap with their little head on your chest. Evan did that last night and it just melted my heart.

3. I'm in love with a new energy drink right now. Cran-energy. It's oceanspray brand and it taste just like regular cranberry juice. I love it because it's natural and doesn't give you the jitters like all those other energy drinks!

4. I hate the summer time. Don't get me wrong I love that the kids are out of school and we get to do some fun activities, but I really do prefer fall and winter! Cool weather, comfort foods, football and holidays...what's not to love?! (We live in SE Texas so no snow for us.)

5. When I was growing up sometimes my mom would call us by the wrong name and I swore that I would never do that...yeah right. I think every mother with more than one child does it! Well yesterday I was asking Jaxon to go do something and I accidentally called him Ethan and he said, " Why don't you give us name tags to wear, so you can get our names right." Ha! I wonder what Michele Duggar does and if she ever gets her kids names right on the first try!!!

Well that's my randomness that's on my mind! If you want to play along go to lowercase letters and link up. Hope y'all have a great Monday!!!

Making Friends and Vampires!

Yesterday I had to go get a new tire for my car. So me and Evan headed to Discount Tires. While we were waiting this lady sat down and started talking to me. She proceeded to tell me about her son, his kids, her job, why she moved down here and basically the rest of her life. I used to think this was weird, but for some reason it happens to me all the time. I think I must have a blinking sign above my head that says, " Tell me your life story." I guess it's a good thing I'm a people person and was blessed with the gift of gab!!!

Later that evening after Justin got home and we all ate dinner with the boys, me and Justin had ourselves a little mini date. He took me to finally see Eclipse. I loved it (he even said he liked it too). It was way better than the other two. I can't wait for Breaking Dawn now! Woohoo Team Edward! Ha!

Well I'm off to get some cleaning done and of course laundry. Hope y'all have a great Friday!!!

Summer Times!

The boys are going crazy! Last week it rained almost every single day. At least we got to get out for our "stay"cation, but besides that they've been cooped up indoors. Now it's the mosquitoes holding us hostage. We look like we've had an outbreak of the chicken pox! So the boys have been watching a whole lot of TV and movies.

Then they came up with the bright idea to use this little wagon and some plastic boxes to play human bowling.

So far no ones gotten hurt...knock on wood. They even taped out a mini soccer field on the floor in Ethan's bedroom. So far nothing has gotten broken...knocking on some more wood! Hope the city sprays soon for the mosquitoes so I can kick these punks outside! Ha! Hope y'all are having a great Thursday.

Birthday Recap!

As y'all know yesterday was Justin's birthday, so me and the boys decided to do some special things! I got some paint out and the boys all did their hand prints to make him a card.

While the card was drying I made some cupcakes and the boys helped by licking the bowl and spoons!

Then I we decided to decorate the kitchen area. Green is Justin favorite color, can you tell?!

When he got home from work we ate dinner, sang him Happy Birthday and finally got to chow down on those cupcakes!!!

I hope he loved them as much as the boys did! They wanted to eat them for breakfast this morning and of course I let them! Ha! Hope y'all have a great Wednesday!

My Honey's Birthday!

Today is Justin's 31st birthday! I love this guy so much.

He cracks me up everyday and every girl knows how important that is! He puts up with all my mood swings and still loves me! Ha!

He's an awesome dad and does so much for them!

Justin, thank you for sharing this crazy roller coaster ride of our lives with me and for being my best friend. I love you with all my heart!

Weekend Wrap-up

Saturday we went to Sam Houston Race Track (horse races) to see Kevin Fowler. He's a Texas country singer. We went to celebrate Justin's birthday, which is actually tomorrow.

We went with a group of our friends and had a great time (from what I remember)! Ha!

Sunday we got up and went to the Astro's game with Tony and Amanda.

They bought the tickets for us for Justin's birthday. Even though the Astro's lost (as usual) we had fun! Thanks guys!

After the game Justin went to pick the boys up from his mom's house and Jonathan came back over. We watched our usual Sunday shows (Big Brother, True Blood & Entourage) and just laid around. Hope y'all had a great weekend too and a happy Monday!!!

Bowling Party

Today we went to my cousin's little boy, Collin's birthday party. It was at this cool place that had an arcade and bowling alley. This is the birthday boy!!

Everyone bowled except Jaxon. He was acting sooooo shy! Even Evan was giving it a try.

Evan was way better at eating cake and making friends!

After bowling the boys played some games and won some cheap-o prizes!!!

All in all we had fun, except for what happened when we were heading up there. We stopped at Wal-mart to get Collin a gift and when we went to leave the car wouldn't start. Luckily some really nice people helped us out and gave us a jump. I guess they felt really sorry for me trying to pop the hood to the car while yelling at four screaming boys in the car! Ha! We were only a couple of minutes late for the party!!! Hope y'all have a great Friday and weekend!
