So things are not healthy with this family! The kid has a cold, Grandpa Phil has bronchitis, me.. Well we won't go into all my problems. Grandma Donna, she's just falling apart. Little Emery is in the hospital with RSV and Riah has a cold too! But let's just hope this coming up month gets better.

6.5.. Do you know what that is? That is how many eff'ing inches of rain we have gotten this month. When is it going to end? Ugh!! We want to go for nightly walks again, go play at the park! And we certainly can't go fishing with the rivers and lakes so full. If I wasted 60$ on my fishing license there will be hell to pay!

In other news.. We finished Lyla's time out chair. There will be pictures to come. I also made a sign for her door that is super cute! I will post a pic for that right now.

Oh and some pretty awesome pics of The Kid's crazy after nap hair!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I have a desire to paint today! I really should paint the bathroom but I want to paint something more creative. So I need my Filbert to nap so I can do it without little fingers in the paint and without screaming! Later on in the week or weekend her and I are going to do an art project that she can help with, that should be fun. Maybe on Thursday when it's not raining and supposedly going to be 65!!! So let's keep our fingers crossed for that. Adam might even take that day off so maybe we can do some family stuff and some yard stuff.

It's definitely a nice thing when you can spend a lot of one on one time with your significant other when most of the time it's one on one on one time shared with a 2 year old. But we definitely miss our baby and can't wait for her to come home today. I can't wait til Adam comes home and I can hear her running to him and shrieking daddy daddy!! That's one of my very favorite things.

Today was a day I *needed* Lyla to take a nap. But of course she won't. I have not had a minute of silence since 9 this morning and it is definitely weighing on me. Please Lord, let her go to sleep early tonight! Thank you.

1 Corinthians 13:13

Someone special reminded me of this this morning.. <3 You Darcie!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love..


I need to let go of my past dreams for my life. I need to let go of the things I can't change. I need to deal with and accept my life how it is now. I can't have everything I want.

I hate the days that I feel irrational and out of control but I can't stop myself from doing it.. Like I've mentioned to some of my friends (yeah, the only people who probably read this) I feel sorta bipolar. But since the change of my birth control (thank you Cindy) I have felt a tad better. But tonight I'm not feeling all that great about myself.. I'll probably go eat some cheetos, watch this Lifetime movie and try not to drink a soda since I gave that up til Easter.

Wordless Wednesday on Thursday..

My weekend was pretty awesome! Since I'm pretty sure I don't have any unknown readers you all know I went to the beach. It was a lot of fun and really nice to get away with just Adam. We missed Lyla. But it's good to have some time away sometimes. But we've already decided that we'd like to bring Lyla in like April or May. We'd like to take her to the Aquarium, to play on the beach, the Sea Lion Caves. I think she'd LOVE it! And family trips are always fun.

Wordless Wednesday..

First I better explain (and yes I know that makes this not wordless). I'm trying to jazz up my blog some more because I do really like to blog but I don't always know what to say so I've decided I'm going to start a few new "projects" for my blog. The first being wordless Wednesday. I will be posting a pic/pics of things that mean a lot to me or something that catches my eye that day! So here goes!

Holy Moly!

So today I started working out! Woo! It's hard! Probably doesn't help that I don't have the right kind of shoes either.. But I really need to do this. I'm not happy with myself lately and I think this will make me feel better! And I can't wait til it's warmer outside and Lyla and I can go on walks and stuff..

And I really can't wait til my BFF burns me a copy of P90x!! So Nicoke! Get on it!
