A Sticky Mommy is Not A Happy Mommy

Who remembers this medicine disgused as bubble glum flavored deliciousness?!

Who remembers this medicine disguised as bubble glum flavored deliciousness?!

Did you know they don’t make amoxicillin in pink anymore?! It’s now white!! Which makes it way harder to clean up off your skin after you drop the bottle and it spills everywhere!!!!! 

Friday, we took Kase to the doctor. He has an ear infection. We can’t tell if the hand foot and mouth virus has shown up yet. He’s cutting two teeth, so the spots on his face could be from his pacy rubbing on his face and the drool and stuff. So we got a prescription for that bubble gum deliciousness pictured to the left. And just a few minutes ago I went to get Kase his first dose of antibiotics. He was laying in bed with my hubby, screaming because he’s been spoiled this past week, and while I was waiting for the water to get hot, I reached into the refrigerator to grab the medicine. Apparently, someone didn’t put the lid on all the way. So, when I picked it up, it spilled. All over the floor, and all over me. I was sticy from the top of my chest to my belly button. The only reason it didn’t go any farther is because I kept my hands against my shirt to keep it where it was. But, at least it was bubble gum and not something else disgusting.

So, I got the fun task of talking to a nurse and getting  a new bottle. Thankfully, it wasn’t a ruder nurse like I normally do. Have you guys ever noticed that nurses at hospitals are ridiculously rude?! Every single time I talk to someone at the hospital, I never get answers to my questions and I just get rude nurses that ar in a hurry to get off the phone. It’s so annoying . I unserstand there are patients waiting for you, but you also have a patient on the phone asking a question. Most of the time I’m calling about my kids.

Anyways. Sorry. I’m just stressed. How’s everyone else’s weekend going?!

Sick babies are no fun

Man….  Teething sucks!!! Kase is cutting two teeth. It’s the two next to his top front teeth. The ones in between his front teeth and his incisors. On top of that, hand foot and mouth disease/virus/whatever you wanna call it, is going aroung daycare. For those of you who don’t know what this wonderful illness is, I pulled this from the CDC website.

Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a common viral illness that usually affects infants and children younger than 5 years old. However, it can sometimes occur in adults. Symptoms of hand, foot, and mouth disease include fever, blister-like sores in the mouth (herpangina), and a skin rash.

Symptoms are fever, general feeling of unwell, poor appetite, and a sore throat. A few days after the fever, sores show up in the mouth. Then, a rash shows up. It shows up on the hands and sole of the feet. It can also show up a number of other places. Thankfully, all we have is the fever. My poor baby feels like crap!! He doesn’t want to cuddle, but he doesn’t want to cuddle. The poor little guy is just miserable!!

Now. I have a question for all the mommies (and daddies I guess) out there. When I was little, I went hunting with my dad. I learned about guns. I learned to respect guns. But, once I started going to daycare, I stopped playing guns. It wasn’t allowed at daycare. I know that it’s not allowed in elementary schools. Hubby thinks that it’s no big deal. As does his family (who, by the way, still haven’t left my house….). I, on the other hand, don’t have a problem teaching my boys about guns and to respect them, but I don’t want them playing guns. It’s a big deal around here. My grandmother was a custodian at an elementary school, and it wasn’t an oddity for a kid to get suspended because he was playing guns. (The child probably had more than one offense, but still, it’s a big deal.) So my question is: Do you let your kids play guns?

The most awful thing in the world just happened!!!

I’m not even playing right now. I ran out of wine!!! I had a super rough day at work and all I want is a full bottle of wine to take the edge off!! And I’m broke and alcohol-less!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh………………..

Good….

 So, I thought I was going to have to work a 3 to midnight job. (Plenty of time to write blog posts right?!) I was told on like Tuesday of last week that my last day would be last Friday because there was someone hired for the position I was (am) in. So, I got al set to start training for the three to midnight job. Then, Friday, my boss was called into her boss’ office with an HR person. (By the way, I worked with my boss at Wal-Mart and graduated high school with her son, so we are super close.) She came out chuckling and one of the other ladies said it was never good when she came out of there laughing. Well, she stopped at the other ladies desk, said something in a low voice and then came to my desk. About the time she got to my desk, the other lady goes “well then it was meant to be!!” So, I knew right away what was going on. The position was filled tentaviley, meaning as long as this other chick passed her drug test and back ground check, she would have the job. What my boss could tell me was she was offered and accepted the position, but somethin’ somewheres didn’t work out and she didn’t get the job. I did. So. After I work my 72 days, roughly, I will be full time! I would tell you the name, but a) I’m not sure many people know the name of the place and b) it’s never good to share the name of your office on a blog, especially if you have had a stressful day. Like today.

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it's empty...

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it’s empty…

Since I was all set to go to another department, they had all my information and computer system set up and ready to go. (I had over 750 e-mails from the other department. Most of which I wasn’t even supposed to get over there. They just have like everyone on every e-mail list. That was just between the 17th and today…) So, we had to get every thing changed over to the department I’m staying at. Easy-peasy leamon squeasy! Right? ! WRONG!!! Why, you ask? Oh, you know, because it’s the corporate world! Hevan forbid something be easy there. So, as of 5 this afternoon whenever I left work, I couldn’t access any of my drives. (You know Q drive, H drive, L drive, blah blah blah.) Well, I could if I signed onto the computer using someone else’s signon. But then, I coulnd’t access my own e-mail.

Friday when I left work, the tables I use to input a bunch of info had been disconnected because they had been freezing. So, I couldn’t finish the last 2 pages of information I had to enter on Friday. For the first, like, 3 hours of work, all I did was look through notes and try to figure out what I needed to retype and what I didn’t. (I have a book of someone else’s notes with confusing writing so I’m trying to make my own book with less confusing notes.) Then, I had a stack of invoices that I had to key. I seriously got a manila envelope of nothing but invoices from one company. 29 invoices in this envelope. That’s not including the FedEx envelope from another company full of invoices, and all the other invoices that came in single envelopes. So. Right now, as I type this, I have about half an inch of invoices that need to be entered. Another stack about the same height that needs to be copied, sent to another department, and filed. Another stack of stuff that I have to get unit numbers on. And, yet another stack of stuff that needs to be filed. Ohhh.. And yet another stack of stuff that I couldn’t do today because I couldn’t access my tables. Awesome right?!

But anyway…… I GOT A JOB!!!!!! One that will eventually have benefits and amazing pay and job oppurtunities!!! And bosses that tooootally kill my caolorie counting. Friday, my boss’ boss bought me and two other ladies Chick-Fil-A. (If you don’t know what Chick-Fil-A is then I beg you, please please please find a chance to eat at one!!) He also bought like the entire office blizzards from Dairy Queen!!! I’m so excited!!!! Like you don’t even know how excited!!!! Wooo!! Go me!!!!

 

 

P.S. Guys. Let me know if the first picture doesn’t load!!

There is something in the water…

Guys. I’m not even joking…. Everyone and their mother…okay. Maybe not their mother but like everyone is pregnant!! I went to dinner with some girlfriends and one of them is about 16 weeks along and has night sickness instead of morning sickness. Poor thing threw up her dinner while I was taking her home.. And then yesterday hubby and I had a baby shower to go to. We played some…interesting games… We had to run an obstacle course with a balloon under our shirt. (Hubby ran it twice. Once with us women and once with his friend, who’s the daddy.) We then had a race to see who could drink 3 ounces out of a slow flow bottle. (It was 5 ounces  but we decided to go to 3. Hubby and his friend totally cheated. First, they took the top of the bottle and just drank it out of the bottle. Then, the baby daddy poked a hole in another nipple and drank it again.) By the way, for those of you who have never tried to drink out of a bottle, it’s suuuuper hard. And if you don’t know what a slow flow nipple is, it is like a drip of liquid coming out. A very. Slow. Drip. But yeah.. Everyone is pregnant!! (No, I’m not pregnant. I promise.)

Cute belly!!!

Cute belly!!!

So I also have a show to tell you guys about!!! It’s called Drop Dead Diva. It’s an amazing show!!! This skinny, blonde haired, aspiring model (who is actually kinda chubby and ugly) is in a car accident. She goes to heaven but she’s not ready to die. So, she pushes the return button and gets sent back to Earth…to a different body. A full figured, dark haired lawyer. Who is insanley smart. So now, the model has all of her memories but not very many of the lawyer’s. Now she has to navigate through a world that she knows nothing about. Including being a lawyer, in court, and with clients. The only people who know that the model is actually the lawyer are her best friend and her gaurdian angel. Oh, and the model’s boyfriend (almost fiance) works at the law firm with the lawyer. So, she also has to navigate the feelings she still has for him and watch him date other people and stuff. It’s a pretty great show. (P.S. ladies, in the episode I’m watching. She dances with half naked men. The men from Thunder from Down Under.) I’m in love with this show!!! I’m not sure how many seasons there are but I watch it on Netflix. It comes on LifeTime though I think. Plus, ya know, there are like 3 amazing guys that are normally on the show, plus all the extras.

This is the cast. The ugly model girl isn't in this picture. She is only seen in a handfull of episodes.

This is the cast. The ugly model girl isn’t in this picture. She is only seen in a handfull of episodes.

Guys, I’m going to need a new show eventually  so feel free to suggest some good ones on Netflix!!

I Forgot Someone!!

Last night I went to bed at like 6:45. Guys. It was great!! But before I went to bed I was cruising Facebook, wondering why, oh why, do I still have this drama filled pit of despair?! And then I ran across one of my friend’s updates that they had liked a blog. A WordPress blog. So I clicked on it. I found a touching, tearful, scary, messy new blog to follow. The author of the blog is a mommy of three. Recently, she went through something that I hope I never have to experience. I would collapse in a puddle of hysterics, crawl into a hole, and never come out. Even though I have two kids. Jill, the author of this blog, is a strong, beautiful, amazing woman. Much stronger than I am. So, I wanted to award her the Shine On award. If someone was ever more diserving of this award it’s her. (I’m going to let her tell you guys her story. So go check out her blog!!)

shineonaward

Jill, I’m going to waive one of the rules, so you don’t need to mominate 15 other blogs. Unless you want to. But you do have to display this award on your blog and tell us seven things about yourself. Well, you don’t have to. But if you want to we would love to hear (read) them!!!

Really bro?! Really?!

Gaaaaaaaaah!!!!! Basketball…. Why, why was this sport invented?! There are no guys in tight pants, the guys are all a bazillion feet tall, and the NBA guys all have weird hair going on. It’s just not hot…. I would MUCH rather watch football or baseball. You got averge size guys, tight pants, and mostly normal hair stuff.

This is what he has. This color and everything!

This is what he has. This color and everything!

So today hubby got a bike. Like a motorcycle. It’s a Kawasaki, that’s all I know. It’s a 2013 with only 1,000 miles on it!! His best friend got it and can’t make the payments so my husband is taking over the payments. Wooooo…….. (See the dots? I’m being sarcastic…) Well, we had to go get a bill of sale from the friend at one end of town, then drive to another end of town to get the bike. Then I followed hubby back to the house and like every horrible thing that could happen was running through my head. My sister in law was at home with the boys. So It was just me freaking out in the car, with no distractions…

Then when I got back, she was cleaning my house… When we left, she was putting the boy’s laundry up. No big deal, it needed to be put up anyway. We we got back, she grabbed our swiffer and asked if we had any swiffer pads. We have wood floors so we use pledge wipes. We just put them on the swiffer like normal swiffer thingys. She swiffered then swept one spot on the floor. That’s it. One spot. Big enough for her to lay down so her….person dude guy pop her back or whatever. Then, she goes into my kitchen, gets the Comet cleaner stuff, goes to the bathroom, and cleans the sink. Just the sink. And rearranged my makeup. I was not a happy camper. First off, if your gonna clean, do it right. Clean the whole bathroom or the whole floor. Not just part of it. Second, my house isn’t that dirty. I don’t come into your house and clean your house. Soooo. Don’t come clean mine. If you don’t like it, there’s the door. K? Thanks….

Ok. I’m done with my rant. How’s everyone else’s night going?!

Guess what guys?!

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiits Moooooooooooooooooooondaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D!!!

Just kidding I’m really not that excited about it. First I didn’t go to sleep till like one this morning. So then I coulnd’t get up this morning. And last night while I couldn’t sleep, I washed my make up brushes. Seriously guys, they were dis-gus-ting. When I wash them out I use a tad bit of whatever oil I have (the recipe thing actually calls for olive oil, but when you are broker than a joke, you use what ya got), a tad bit of dish soap, and a tad bit of water. I stir it up with my finger and then I start swirling my brush in it. Then I rinse in luke warm water and lay them out to dry. You are supposed to hang them to dry, but again, I’m broke so I use what I got, which happens to be a dish towel. So I finally drag my lazy ass outta bed and take a shower and what not. Then the next morning I use them like normal.

Well. Apparently, I wasn’t paying attention to rinsing them. Because this morning when I was putting on my foundation, my face got uber oily and greasy. By the time I got done putting my base one, there was soap coming out of my brush. Awesome right?! My solution was the obvious choice. Rinse the brush out. Which I did, before I put on my powder. I realized my mistake after the fact of course. So then I used my blush brush that really needs to be retired. So make make up looked like crap. And my eyeliner looked like a four old did it. Then, I realized I didn’t have anything for breakfast, or lunch, other than pretzels. And I was totally swamped all afternoon at work. On top of being tired.

Buuuuuuuuuut!!! An amazing thing happened!!  I was nominated for an award!! It’s called the Shine On Award. The comment that was left about it totally made my day!! Ms. Jane from Jane’s Journal nominated me!! Totally just made my Monday a jillion times better so thank you oh so much ma’am!!!

A Little Bit Nostalogic Today

I can’t help it. My baby will be one in 29 days!!! He is getting so big!! When he was first born his daddy could hold him with one hand!! He could barely fit in newborn clothes. And his car seat!! He was practically swimming in it!! Now, he’s almost conquered crawling and just tried to pull himself up on my table!! (He kid of slid on his butt farther underneath the table and then fell over, rather than getting up.)

My little man!!

My little man!!

Kase, pronounced like case, Daniel Ferguson was born July 14, 2012. He was born at 35 weeks and had to have a feeding tube inserted into his nose because he wasn’t eating. After spending a week in the hospital with pre-term labor, having my food taken away, and being in and out of the hospital for a month, I had to spend another week in the hospital with my baby. Thankfully they gave me a steroid shot while I was in pre-term labor to increase his lung production, so he was breathing perfectly fine. He was actually quiet compared to his brother. Key word there, was.

This was the day he came home from the hopital. He was so tiny!!

This was the day he came home from the hospital. He was so tiny!!

Now, he is spoiled rotten. He slept in bed with mommy and daddy for six months. Then, mommy got tired of sleeping in uncomfortable positions. So mommy put him in his own bed. He still falls asleep on my dear hubby’s chest every night, and he’s held a lot more than he should be. But his giggle is the most contagious thing ever. And, when he’s in his walker and he drops something, watching him walk in circles trying to figure out how to get it is rather humorous.He’s a cuddly little ball of fun, most of the time. Not to mention that he has curly hair just like his daddy. So, when he wakes up the back of his hair, which is the longest part, is a mass of curls poking out everywhere.

I look at my oldest and remember his first birthday like it was yesterday. I know Kase’s will be the same way. I’m so excited to watch him attempt to eat cake and figure out what the hell his mommy put in front of him. He has his two bottom teeth but his top two have just barely poked out from his gums, so he hasn’t really been introduced to very many solid foods. So hopefully he will be able to eat it. We are still deciding on the theme. Actually, I haven’t even began to debate what I want to do. His party is 28 days aways, so I guess I better hurry up and decide!! The party is going to be at my house so I’m not sure how crazy I want to go with decorations and what not. I will be sure to try to remember to take pictures and post them!!

Sorry for the absence!

So. I lost my job Friday before last. Sadly, because I really loved that office. But, the next Tuesday, I was at another office. Guys. I swear I needed a degree to do this job… It was crazy… But I was offered a different job doing something a LOT easier making a dollar more. It’s not much, but it’s worth it! The job I was doing was just not for me. So. I’m going to go back to being a receptionist. Which is ok with me!

That job was just a temp job, but I was hoping they would hire me on. I loved all the people that I worked with and I loved my job. Hopefully I will find another office as great as that one. I didn’t take it as hard as I thought I would. My husband even mentioned how proud of me he was. Which meant a lot. Considering how I handle a lot of things. My new job is another temo but it starts on Tuesday!!

My "congrats" card to myself (:

My “congrats” card to myself (:

By the way guys. You need to watch that zombie movie called “Warm Bodies”. It’s a pretty great movie!! We are watching it right now. It’s the only zombie movie I’m really willing to watch because it’s funny. Well….We would be watching it if Redbox would bother to make sure their movies weren’t all messed up before they let other people rent them…. We have missed some major parts of this movie because it keeps skipping… Definitley lodging a complaint… We rented the movie “Take Me Home Tonight” and it wouldn’t even play in my Playstation 2. We never returned it and didn’t watching it until like 6 or 8 months later. I think they have offically lost my business…

He is actually pretty cute without all that zombie make-up on!!

He is actually pretty cute without all that zombie make-up on!!

 

And also we went to Chuck E Cheese today.. In my opinion, the only thing good about that place is ski ball, but even that sicked this time. But. My step brother and I got mustaches!! I’m going to spare you the humiliation of seeing me wearing a mustache but I will show you the utter cuteness of my little man (the oldest) in a mustache. (If you absolutely must see me in a mustache just check out my twitter. It’s there.)

Now isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?!  Except its a tad crooked...

The End is Nigh!!!

Actually, it’s here. But I’ve always wanted to say that!!! So there ya go!! This is our last day, I apologize that it took so long to get here, but it is here.

Day Thirty. Write a letter telling yourself everything you love about yourself. (This will probably be a short letter considering my upsetness. But, it’s probably just what I need!)

Dear self,

Oh, how I love you. Let me count the ways. Your hair, your smile, your eyes, your intelligence, your hair….. Ok, seriously, bro. You are awesome. Like FRIGGIN FANTASTICALLY AMAZINGLY awesome. And don’t forget it!! Don’t argue with me either, because I know what I’m talking about. I’m you soooo duh. I’m right. Done.

Fanta-stick. Fantastic. Hee hee hee (:

Fanta-stick. Fantastic. Hee hee hee (:

So. The ways you are amazing you ask? Well. Your smart for one. You may not be that street smart, but you have an amazing capacity to retain useless information. It’s like, your specialty. You may be a little dense sometimes and have your blonde moments (I blame all the hair dye and chemicals), but they are some pretty funny ones sometimes. And you play off getting embarrassed pretty well! I mean, you have enough practice at it!

Second way that you are amazing? Well I guess it’s kind of thing that’s awesome about you. That would be your hair. Yeah it’s a little short right now and there’s this weird thing going one with this little mohawk looking thing going down your part. And those weird pieces of hair in your bangs that tend to stick straight up and not lay down right. But, your hair holds color like no other! I mean it doesn’t fade that bad and looks amazing in just about any dark color. And, it used to grow like crazy!!! (Not so much anymore, not sure why but still.) I mean, before Little Man, you had trim your bangs every couple of weeks or so so they wouldn’t be all wird lookin!

blueeyes

Third. Giiiiiiiiiiiirl!! Dem eyes!!! They change with what you wear and the eye shadow you wear. Yesterday they were green because you wore green eye shadow. Today they were a grayish because of the smoky eye you did. Throw on a bright or dark blue and look out baby! They are like BAM!!!! blue. So how awesome is that?! It is a tad annoying when they randomly change in the middle of the day and you have a plan for them to be one color all day and then they don’t cooperate. That’s a tad annoying.

Fourth, baby, your smile. Girl, your smile can light up a room. You may not like it, but other people love to see it. It makes people smile. Your smile can cheer so many  people up. It was of little use this weekend, sadly, but just about any other time, it works. Sparkly and bright. So don’t ever forget that.

Now, I know you can’t do all those crazy, weird styles that look so awesome on everyone else. But girl. You can pull off some crazy eyeshadow that not many people can! And as long as you keep your balance in them, you can wear just about any heel. And, your ass looks pretty great in jeans!! Gorgeous!!! And sweetie, you can dance and your occasionally good. But it’s so much more fun to dance like an idiot! And, also, the bestsest thing ever about you, is your ability to make any awkward situation funny, or even more embarrassing. Oh, and your humor. What little sense you do have is pretty great.

So when you get down on yourself just come back to this and read it. And feel better about yourself love!!

Love,

Me (you….yourself)

 

Now I challenge you to write your own letter like this. Tell yourself everything you love about yourself.
