It's a work in progress, bear with me!!!!!!!! GGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

reading material

"Why Gender Matters" by Leonard Sax.

The most amazing book I have ever read regarding how different boys and girls are!! Honestly amazing, I have never read a book so based on facts and case studdies not just popular opinions or just opinions for that matter !!

Every person who has day to day contact with children MUST read this book!!

I have a teacher to thank for recommending this book to me, it took 2yrs for me to get it but now that I have I couldn't be more thankful!!

So my hair does seem to be lightening as I wash it:) Also this morning I was able to go and get a hair cut to..............................even out and give shape to what I had Chris start, it looks nice, Chris actually really likes it..

For me it just gives me nightmares and flashbacks to a hair cut given to me some 9ish years ago......

I think I'm going to take the bigger kids sledding somewhere this afternoon during nap time. I haven't been sledding in years. Ever since my niece had that tragic sledding accident a few years ago, I'm not a big fan!

Fashion sense

What I find so funny about these pictures, esp. the one's of the Miss is that each article of clothing IS an acceptable part of the school dress code, I'm just not sure if all together they are ;-)

Please take note of the shifty little fella in the background, he's dipping ANYTHING into his cup. Today I believe he was just dipping his hand in his milk and sucking it off... Now if you give him a straw or 6 this wont happen but I don't always remember on time........

Not to be left out Dino man wanted his pic taken too........

This is me, after I had Chrs cut my hair! Granted I told him where to cut, just didn't expect it to be SO short.....
Is it the color it's suppose to be at this point in time? HECK NO! Am I going to leave it alone for a week or so? HECK YA!!

Many weeks ago there was this thing on Face book where friends put a "pay it forward" thing and the first 5 folks to comment would get a homemade gift from that person. Well I commented on one, a mom from our old school and then forgot about it. (Yes Cheryl I know I owe you something, you just need to tell me what it is you want:))
Well today she stops by the house and drops off my homemade gift! I LOVE homemade gifts... She says she's not crafty or gifted in the "homemade" dept. but as you can see she's a liar:) My new Hat
AND it matches my new jacket from Chrs.... I love it!!

So just about everyone I'm reading is talking about potty training! Well I'm NOT...
The End

I'm gonna go read some more of "Why Gender Matters" EVERYONE should read this and pass it along to each and every educator that they know....

New found love

I live in a state where it snows in the winter, snows a lot!
Now with myself being sick off and on for most of the past 4months I have gotten VERY out of shape VERY quickly! (I'm sure it doesn't help that I kept my eating habits the same:))
Now for the past few weeks I've been feeling pretty good(I'm sure upping my meds helped a little too) and I've been getting back into the swing of things for myself. I'm working out again and out with the dog walking at night. Were trying to get ourselves back into running, I think we both feel a lot better when we get out... Well as you know it's winter and really no fun to go out without any GOOD traction(Frank urinated on my winter walking boots). My "play in the snow boots" really don't have much so I've been shopping around for something to put on my shoes/boots so that I can go out with confidence...

I found them and found a great deal! According to the comments and reviews these are suppose to be awesome... They came in the mail a few days ago. Last night I was able to try them out for the first time. I even wore my running shoes(just in case)...

I AM IN LOVE, this has to be the single best running/walking wintertime investment I have ever made. I ran and walked and it didn't matter if it was uphill, downhill,rounding corners, lots of snow, barely any snow, ice, slush, whatever, they hugged me to the road like it was July and a drought!!! I am so motivated to get my butt out there and get rid of these new found bulges that have rounded up all over the place... It will be no time before I'm back to what I was if not even better!!!

What a day

This morning about 9ish I leave the house to make a play date drop off... I'm dropping off and Isaac to pick up a Norah W. and her bigger sis Noelle:) This should be fun I think, I just L-O-V-E the drama that 1 makes let alone 3! (hear sarcasm)

We load up in the van and I hear "mom play my favorite song" THE minute it starts playing I think, "I'm gonna have so much fun today" and I ment it!! Why because we were rocking out to some Justin Bieber on the ride home and the 3 ladies in back KNEW EVERY WORD! I guess that works because together they have a combined age of 17 :)

Then what do you do........................................................
)Why play some Wii dance
and play some more. I love how Norah W. doesn't even need to play to dance and have fun

Then what do you do.............................
Dress up like pretty fairy princess to go run a few errands, the last of which was a car wash(you would have thought we said lets get some ice cream)

We played with the Fur real dog, played the Wii, colored with crayons,colored with markers, played with dogs, painted, made necklaces, changed cloths a bazillion times, watched parts of movies, played games, managed to eat a morning snack, eat lunch, have cookies, play with Ari's kitchen,play with Ari, pretend to be dogs,play with modeling clay,dress up Isis in many different "outfits" none of which she was all that thrilled about,run errands, have dinner, have many more cookies,watch more parts of movies, create a play with actual parts for each only to be drawn away at rehearsal time by some part of a movie that was playing and they were only going to preform it for themselves...paint fingers and toes....
I think that may be all :)

I have a few observations of late that I'm going to share with all 3 of you :)

1) WHO knew that tweaking medication could make one feel completely at ease and peaceful inside. I mean really! I do believe I've been in a constant state of frustrated/overwhelmed tension for the past 3yrs... just a very slight increase at each time and I'm the old me again!!!!!

2) my 9yr old son can wear my husband's mothers shoes! They fit fine!!!! Speaking of fitting, I am also going to need to buy him size 12slim jeans just so they are long enough! I JUST bought him many pairs of size 10, did I mention he's 9 flippen years old!!! Any of you who have older boys can understand how crazy this is.....or not IDK:)

3)and there was a 3rd but now I've forgotten...................................if i remember I'll come back with an update....


3) I've been wanting to purchase an oven thermometer for YEARS and Finally did yesterday? or the day before?? Anyway my oven was set to 350 and wouldn't you know it, it was actually over 400.....rite now it's set for 300 (the package said 375) and it's just about 375!!

So really not all worth the wait for you but I just had to post it, I'm so shocked by the difference!!!
The point is if you don't have one in your oven, GET ONE it could be WAY off :-)
