Brother Husbands

I throw the bouquet, to what I am thinking is my single ladies
WTH? Does ANYONE else see what's wrong with this picture?


With that being said, I offered him a deal like the Sister Wives from TLC, he loved the idea until he heard what I had to say, I told him it would be extra husbands but instead extra wives, to help around the house with the chores he hates and or refuses to do like the Lawn. I didn't see what was so wrong with it. I thought it was an amazing idea if I say so myself. Mr. Cranky Pants said NO....

Rude I know...

Whatever......I guess I will have to settle....the things I do for this man!

A Wee Bit Of Me Wednesdays

{one} what time do you normally wake up?
I wake up a lot through the night, Evan still isn't fully sleeping through the nights, and then I have part time job doing the newspapers for the Standard so my alarm goes off at 3:45 we leave around 4:15 get back around 5:20ish then back to sleep until 7:20....yeah, it sucks trust me...Thankfully we only have to do it until the end of the month!

{two} do you have a go-to song for karaoke?
No...I don't sing in public, I would not put people through that torture

{three} if you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would you choose to see?

{four} what color best matches your personality?
Yellow & Blue

{five} if you could choose one meal to cook better than anyone else, what would it be?
Thanksgiving dinner! Everyone always talks about certain people's awesome Thanksgiving dinner's I want to be able to say I am the bomb at that dinner.

{six} how many keys do you have on your key ring?
3 One for my car, one for the house & one for my locker at my other part time job, Dominos. Yup I currently have 1 full time job and 2 part time jobs, days I work all three jobs SUCK!

{seven} do you give your pets birthday/christmas gifts?

{eight} when your plate has different foods on it, do you mix or not?
It all depends ON the food wether they can mix together or not. For an example, peas and mashed potatoes can touch and are OK to mix but hashbrowns with Ketchup and pancakes with syrup CAN NOT touch, infact they can't even be on the same plate together Ewwwwwwwww gag....

{nine} if you could hire someone to do one thing for you all the time, what would it be?

Meet Apollo

Meet Apollo & Alyssa. I work with Alyssa, she is Awesome....this is her dog Apollo. He is part Great Dane & Mastiff....yeah he's going to be a HUGE dog. In the first picture was him taken the end of August the next 2 pictures is his paw next to my hand the first the end of August the 2nd one was taken today. Oh MY! He JUST turned 5 months old. The last picture is Alyssa & Apollo taken today...He weighs 80 pounds at 5 months old! He is the sweetest dog, he gives you tiny kisses when you know he could easily cover your face with slober! I love him! He's got such a great personality! From what Alyssa says he is about to go through another grow spurt, I will take more pictures of him in a few months! I miss not having a dog. I miss Molly, even though she did drive me insane....

Parent Teacher Conference For Avery

We learned a lot at Avery's most recent parent teacher conference. He wasn't there because my Mom and Terry took him and Toby out for Ice Cream. While we were there we discovered a few things. First we discovered that by the end of the year the kids are supposed to know 107 words by sight. Avery already knows 95 of them, NOW....yeah he's awesome I know. She says that when he starts to read he is a different person. He can read so smoothly. AWESOME. He's getting a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas from my parents, he's going to LOVE it.
She said that he is great with Math as well...she said that he is working on 2 part instructions. Part 1 he is good with put more than 1 step instructions he tends to get lost....we have been working with him on that at home so that's nothing new I am just glad she is working with him on it as well. He also is working on the ability to tie his shoes. He can't seem to get it down. It drives me insane. Richard has been his teacher cause I am pretty sure my hair would be pulled out by now if it was me teaching him.
She told us that he has "people" we looked at her with a confused look on our faces, People? She said when she notices that his shoes are untied he will notify one of his "people" and they will come and tie them for him. Seriously kid? Oh dear....he told us later that night that Manuel ties them the best....I tried so hard NOT to laugh....
The next thing his teacher showed us was his handwriting. It has gotten so much better. She had him write a letter about what his plans were for Halloween. He wrote that he was going to go trick or treating with his family and his step family and that he was going to be a swat man. She doesn't know our family, so she didn't think anything was wrong with the letter.......Richard and I we had her repeat the letter, yup we were right it did say going trick or treating with his family and step family...Hummmm who is this said step family? We explained to his teacher he doesn't have a step family. She started to laugh, he doesn't was her response....nope! So when we got home we asked Avery who is step family is. He said it was Ty and Drew, that is my friend Lisa's kids. We were going trick or treating with them at my work. So I joked around with Lisa and emailed her that and asked, So is Bryan (her husband and my co worker) my ex or is Richard your ex? More so do I need to start sending you child support for your and Richard's children or does Bryan need to start sending child support for our children! It made me laugh..still does...ahh Avery!

Three Letter Word......

VTO...Voluntary Time Off. It's a three letter word that I love/hate. I love when the offer VTO, I can leave early get away from the place I spend WAY to much time at and hate spending so much time at. I miss working from home more than anyone realizes. It was the best of both worlds. I got to spend time with my awesome kids and I got to work. I loved it. I miss it, but because other people in the company thought it was OK to NOT work when they were "working" from home, they took the project away. Great, so I get punished for others not doing their job. NOT FAIR. Whatever. So when they offer VTO here (only for a short time, once Tax Season fully hits it's OT for me) I have SUCH a hard time not taking it. I hate being here, period. I hate being away from my babies. I want to be with them, not stuck at stupid place that is next to impossible to move up in the company. Bryan? Enough said.....Lisa will understand what I mean, basically her awesome hubby is stuck in support and shouldn't be because it's next to impossible to get out of here! I want to be home with my babies, I don't want to be here....I feel a caged animal most days so when the offer the sweet VTO words it takes everything I have to not take it and when I do I can't get out of the parking lot fast enough. It's not like I am getting off at noon, it's only an hour early but 1 hour more with my babies is time I will take any day. When you take VTO that also means you get to leave early without pay. Sigh....what's the price of my freedom? It's so hard being here when I could quit and just be a bum and leech off the state, but I refuse to do so. So instead I stay working, and having someone else "raise" my kids. I hate it. VTO I hate/love you.

FYI: I like to keep as many pictures possible of my family reminding me why I am here...for them...& I need to badly upate the pictures too! & yes that is the Hulk on the top of my cell, I like him, and if you notice at the bottom of my monitor that's a Alice in Wonderland doll and I also have a grimice from Mcdonalds and a My Little Pony, I am a kid at heart....

I Love My Kids.........

It was Sunday morning a tad bit past 7 am and all three boys were awake, fed & dressed. I figured it would be a good time to get some pictures in! Toby was awesome for the first few pictures of him and Avery then I suggested to add in Evan and that's when the fun stopped for Toby he refused to look at the camera. So I got a picture of just Evan and Avery and Toby was totally ok with it...lil brat....
