Working Woman

I recently went back to work. I am once again a pharmacy tech and I really do enjoy my job. It is so nice not to be just Mom or just Domestic Goddess. I also like contributing to the family income. I really would like to save some money up for a used pop up camper. I would also like to join a local gym where two of the mom's from Cohen's class go. I always do much better working out when I have someone else to work out with. I am going to stay on target with my blog again as well! Here's to the New Year!

Friday Frustrations

Frustrations are a part of life, so I will list my top 3..... what are your frustrations for the week?

My top 3 frustrations this week:

1. My health. Once again I am having health issues. I am in pain, bloated, crampy, and moody as all get out. I am so over this. My first surgery was just over a year ago, my second just over 7 months. I have no reproductive organs left... what could possible hurt now?

2. My husband. Too much time together makes me crazy. He was on vacation last week and did not have many hours this week. If he could be more productive when he is home, perhaps I could be less naggy. I just want things around the house fixed. Is a working dishwasher too much to ask for?

3. My almost 4 year old getting hurt at the pool. My son, being as clumsy as his mother, tripped over his own towel and fell face first onto cement. He busted his lip, scraped his face, and gave himself a bloody nose. His face looks much better now, just in time for his 4th birthday this weekend. I felt so bad for him. It is frustrating as a mother to not be able to take your child's pain away.


This Sunday is my baby boy's 4th birthday. I have no idea where the time has gone. I am happy that he is getting bigger because it enables us to do more together, like movies, games, etc. it makes me sad though since I cannot have anymore children. Cohen is a very strong willed, independent, fearless little boy with a big heart and a love for life. I still remember the day he was born like yesterday. Although the first two years were a challenge, to say the least, I cannot imagine my life or my family without him.

Some changes

I decided it was time for a new look for my blog. It may take some time as I am NOT computer savvy in the least. I really like the new beach background because I love the beach. I would do anything, well almost, to live on the beach. The sounds, smells, the look of the water, I love it all. I am most relaxed by the water, my feet in the sand, and a great book in hand. I will be spending most of next week, just that way, plus a great friend!

Who does that?!?!

So the other day at the pool, while my son was gushing blood from his beautiful face, a lady approached me. She asked me if we needed any help and if C was alright. I assured her we were fine and thanked her. She then turns to her 3 kids and says see this is exactly why you don't run at the pool. OMGeeeeeeeee I was mad. First off Cohen was not running, hell he wasn't even walking. He stood up and tripped over his towel. Second of all my son is sitting on a bench bleeding from his mouth and nose, so get the eff out of the locker room and let us deal with him. I was seriously ticked that she was using my son as a teaching lesson for her kids and that she made it sound like it was Cohen's fault because he was running. If my child was not bleeding and I was not freaking out I would have let her have it. Seriously, who does that?!?! And who does that in front of the child who is crying and bleeding all over his beach towel?


Once again I am going through a blogging drought. Once summer hit I became too busy, or maybe lazy. The boys and I are enjoying our summer. We have been going to the beach and pool quite often. I have a great tan and I am loving the sun. Next week we leave for a week in Pentwater. We will be staying in my mother in law's camper, which will be a nice break from tent camping. I can't believe summer is already half over. That saddens me as I am NOT a cold weather type of girl!

Weekend In Review

Friday: I went to some garage sales with one of my nearest and dearest friends Jodi. Make sure to check out her blog here for more good reads and to tell us all about your weekend. I struck out at the sales but I always enjoy going either way. Friday evening I stayed home with the boys and we played Toy Story Uno and watched Iron Man.

Saturday: I woke up early and went to more garage sales with another near and dear friend and her children and my youngest son. I found a few things, but nothing too exciting. Then I went to the local zoo with my mother in law and sister in law. My boys and I got to touch a sting ray, which I have to admit really scared me. Then I came home and in all honesty I cannot for the life of me remember what I did.

Sunday: I was enjoying a long soak in the bathtub with a good book when my phone rang. It was my friend Danielle who lives out of town. She was in town and wanted to do lunch. I was so excited to see her, I have not seen her since Christmas. We used to work together and talked all the time. Now life gets in the way. After lunch I did hours upon hours of yard work, including weeding my flower garden and mowing the back yard. For dinner we grilled out chicken, burgers, and grilled asparagus with lemon pepper seasoning and a bit of olive oil. After dinner I went roller blading and tried out running for the first time. I am not very good at it, but I am willing to give it a shot. I came home from there and went bike riding with my neighbor to the ice cream shop. It was yummy and totally not on my diet, but well deserved. I then got the boys to bed and went to bed myself where I tried to read but I was beat. Before I knew it Monday was here and my alarm was going off.
