I Have No Title

My brother's pug had puppies. I want a pug puppy. They are so stinking cute. Brian says we need to seriously think about it because they're high maintenance. I suppose he's right. Hmph!

Darby told me the other day that if she could wish for something she would wish for another mommy. At first I thought she wanted a replacement mommy. Rude! It turns out she wants to clone me. That way, one mommy could go to work and the other mommy could stay home and take care of her. I asked which mommy would go to work. She said the one she wished for. I think that sounds like a perfect wish.

Riley on the other hand, was talking about confessing his sins at church. (He goes to Catholic school, blah!) Brian asked what my sins would be and he had quite a list, but the one that sticks out was that I'm a grouchy mom in the morning. Sometimes. I don't think I'm that grouchy and sometimes I'm very nice in the morning. I'm not sure how many people might agree, but that's my opinion.

I have watched two movies with Brian that I believe I wouldn't have chosen to watch if it were just me. Super Size Me and Napolean Dynamite. They were both excellent. Well, Napolean Dynamite more so than the other, but Super Size Me has convinced me that I should never eat McDonalds again. Okay, so I am probably not on a lifetime ban, but I seriously get ill at the thought of eating anything from that place. You would have to watch the movie to understand. Napolean Dynamite was just hilarous. We constantly talk about this movie. "Remember in Napolean Dynamite when....?" That is a must have movie. I could watch that movie over and over again and still find it amusing. There aren't many movies out there I can stomach to watch more than once or twice. It was great.

January Birthdays

I made it through the birthday week unscathed. Whew! Actually, besides the fact that I was busy trying to get everything done, I had a good time. Wednesday night was Riley's 8th birthday. He loves seafood so we took all of the kids to Red Lobster. They were good. They didn't make us want to kill them. The boys liked the lobster. I'm not a big lobster fan I've decided. It's okay, but I wouldn't choose it on the menu over, say, prime rib. I did like the crab legs, however.

Thursday was Brian's birthday and I woke up early and made him a special breakfast consisting of cheesy eggs, toast, potatoes, and ham. He also opened the two CDs I bought him and the birthday beanie bear that Jordan wrapped for him. I wasn't able to bake him a cake, because I just didn't have time, so I went and bought a chocolate cake with Happy Birthday Brian on it. It was yummy. Then he opened the shirt and jeans I bought him after we had cake and ice cream. We also drank some glasses of vodka and grapefuit and stayed up much, much too late for a work night. That's alright.

Brian's mom's birthday was Friday. We didn't end up getting over to her house until after 8:00 sometime. Mainly because we are super duper slow pokes. We bought her a Disney watch and some Mickey mugs.

Then Saturday everyone came over to celebrate Riley's birthday. I will be posting the pictures soon, I hope. He had an army man birthday party, the same as last year and received more GI Joes and accessories. He's just a goof. I don't know why he's so into the army men right now, but I don't mind it. I think it's sort of cute. I also made everyone at the party, that mainly consisted of adults, pose for a group photo with them all wearing army men hats. That will definitely be posted on the photo blog. I just need to do it.

I'm Changing It To Planning for my 31st

Alright, so when I'm 28 I'm getting by belly button pierced, when I'm 29 I'm getting a tattoo, when I turn 30 a boob job, and by the time I'm 31 I want this house. Now Brian says this may effect my boob job, but I hope not. I want this, or a very similar house like this--soon. I may be willing to give up the boobs, but I don't want to have to make the decision yet. I still have a couple of years to mull it over. A house is definitely more important than boobs, but still, I've wanted these boobs for years now and I'm not ready to just give them up.

Yesterday I had the day off and Brian and I drove by a new subdivision. We decided to drive around and then decided it would be fun to look through the houses. That floorplan was my favorite. Brian said we could see how we're doing in two to three years with our debt and income and all those factors that contribute to the ability to purchase a new home, to see if we might possibly be able to afford the house. I really want the house, so maybe I'll even refrain from shopping so excessively. In fact, I know I will. I have to. It will be much more fun to have a nice house, than a nice outfit. I will only shop when absolutely necessary. I just hope I can distinguish between necessity and want. I'm not sure I can.

I'm home today, but not by choice. Darby was "sick" last week and now Riley is really sick today. He threw up in my car on the way home. I think it was mainly water that he spewed every, but it's still gross. Anyway, he is absolutely not faking like his little sister did one day last week. She did have the flu, but was better when she had to come home from school. Anyway, that's why I'm home today.

I have an appointment to get my hair colored in two weeks. I think it's so funny that the past year I have had my hair colored once and that was to cover the gray. I didn't get a different color, just my natural color. I finally love the color of my hair as it is naturally and I have to have it colored to get the full effect. It's so sad. For the past six previous years, I have colored my hair from really light, almost blonde to dark red to almost black. It started to ruin my hair and pretty soon it wouldn't even hold the color. My hair was completely bleached out and horrible looking. So I stopped coloring my hair and let it resume it's natural beauty :) Well it turns out that I really like the natural color, but now it has splashes of gray on top. Now I go in to cover the gray. Stupid! I guess that's what I get for getting old. I find it horribly rude.

Planning My 30th

It's Sunday morning. It snowed last night. The kids are so excited. They want to go have a snowball fight. Weirdos. I hate having snow thrown at my face, but I suppose that's just me. I'm sure the whole game will turn into a cry fest after a couple of minutes.

This weekend has been pretty good. Brian has to work this weekend so yesterday was just me and three little kids. We went shopping for Brian's birthday, which is this Thursday, the day after Riley's. Then we went to a jewelry party my friend was having. The kids played upstairs with her son Jacob while I looked at jewelry I don't really want. I know I should have bought something, but there wasn't anything I had to have. Besides, when I start to purchase nicer jewelry I don't want it to be from that place. I have my heart set on Tiffany and Co. I love that jewelry. I get the catalog every couple of months and I sit around and pick out all the things I want. I think Brian thinks it's a waste of money, but he's a boy and boys know nothing of such things. I told him he should pretend to care about which pieces I would like. Surprisingly, he does (pretend).

I don't know if I've wrote about my plans for turning thirty, but since I'm going to be turning 29 in a few months I've been thinking about it again. I'm way behind. When I turned 28 I was suppose to get my belly button pierced. I never got around to getting it done. Now I have my winter fat and when I sit my stomach has a fat roll. I suppose I should be happy it's just one, right? Before I get my belly button pierced I have to get that taken care of. Considering that I haven't got back into my workout routine I don't know when this will happen. I have set a goal however. March 15th my stomach will be flat again, (fingers crossed), and I will get the piercing. There's nothing special about March 15th, it's just a random date I selected. Brian was becoming angry because I couldn't give him a good reason for the choice of the date. I don't know why this irritated him, but I think it's funny that it did.

Anyway, I need to get it done before my 29th birthday, because when I turn 29 I'm getting a tattoo. I don't know what image I will get tattooed and I'm not entirely sure of where I'll have it put. I'm thinking of getting one put on the small of my back, because I love how those look, but I'm scared to do that. If I'm going to do it I'm going to have to love it. I just need to be strong. I like dragon flies so that would be an option. My friend Tammy has an awesome tattoo on her back, but I don't want to be a follower, and I'm not entirely sure what it is. I don't want a symbol on my back that means something like "I make my living as a prostitute" or something equally as horrible. Not that she would have that on her back, but I've only hung out with her a couple of times outside of work, so you never know. Regardless of the tangent, I'm getting a tattoo when I'm 29.

And the big 3-0. What could I possibly do for that birthday? Well let me tell you. I actually thought I wanted to have another baby before I turned thirty, and then have my tubes tied, but I'm over that faze. I think. At least I haven't been thinking about it for awhile or longing for it is a better description. My new obsession is to have my boobs done. A nice big set of C cups. I want perky, pretty breasts for the rest of my life. I want them so badly. Yesterday, at the jewelry party a girl whose had a boob job was there. Hers are a full C and they aren't that big. She's tiny and still they aren't overwhelming. They are what I would describe as perfect. And I want a pair. I told Brian that I told everyone at my work that's what he's going to get me when I turned thirty. He said he doesn't know how he's going to do that. He'll be able to. I have faith in him. I don't want anything else. I would even consider it two birthdays and a Christmas present, that's how badly I want it. That's my plan. That's how I want to transition into the next part of my life. I think it sounds like a good plan.

Side note: Brian, if you promise to get me the boob job, I might even consider keeping the Chrysler for an extra year. :)

Just For Fun

I was reading through some of Brian’s old emails to see if there were some I wanted to get rid of and I came across a little questionnaire that we both filled out. I think it’s funny. It was filled out back in May of last year. The idea is you receive this email from a friend with the questions answered. Your suppose to delete their answers, fill in your own answers and send it back, as well as send it to new people you want to fill it out. I guess it’s a chain email. Anyway, here’s what Brian and I answered. The first answers are mine and the second are Brian’s. We live together and yet some of our answers in regards to the home are different. I think he did that on purpose. Go figure.

1. What time do you get up? Weekdays:512AM Weekends: 7ish;
Weekdays:6:30AM Weekends: 7ish

So, are you dying to know which ones were answered in error? I know you are. Number 8 is the super error. Who inspires me? Not my husband and child, considering I have no husband and I have two children, not a child. I forgot to change the answer. Brian thought it was funny so he left it the same also. However, #24, where were you born was not an intentional mistake by Brian. He was not born in Dallas, TX. I’m drawing a blank on his actual place of birth, but it wasn’t in Dallas. That looks like all the errors. There are some answers that have changed since last May. Maybe I’ll answer them again in a different post. Just for fun

Nothing New

Once again I have lapsed in keeping the blog updated. I don't know why I've been busier than usual. Crazy. Any how, nothing exciting has happened and I have nothing that has been driving me insane. Hence, I have nothing to write.

I have been a slacker on my resolution to work out four times a week. The first week starting and I only did three days. Next week I'll be lucky if I get in three days. I'm hopeless.

Brian and I made Cosmopolitans the other night. I've never had one before and they're pretty good I must admit. We were even able to use my Barbie party glasses I received for Christmas. They're very pretty and fun.

We've been throwing around the idea of getting a puppy. I decided that we need to get a yellow lab. I think a lab will fit into our house nicely. I really want a puppy. We went looking at the animal shelter yesterday, but none of the dogs there were a must have. There was a cute little shepherd/retriever mix, but still not what I'm looking for. I just know the right dog will happen along. Just like Bailey. I know we didn't keep Bailey, he was broken and needed to be in home that had patience for such a broken, weird dog. That's where he is now. And he's happy. I saw him the other night. He's fat too. So, maybe Brian and I were meant to take him. He was not in a very good home when we found him.

What else? Nothing. Riley and Brian's birthdays are coming up. Their birthdays are one day apart so that week should be pretty busy.

And that's all I have. I do hope to some day get off my ass and update the photo blog. So many events have happened since the last time it was updated.
