A Boy and his Blog....

CJ, my son, is back to be blogging again.... He loves to write and he LOVES for people to read (and comment on) his writing!!!

SO, for my boy, I am asking that you go visit his blog HERE and send him some comment lovin'....

Oh, I am SOOOO looking forward to this weekend.... I am ready for sleeping in, watching some 90210 on Saturday and Sunday morning (yes, I am a dork), watching Joseph play baseball, going to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" with the kids..... and just having some relaxation!!!!

I Love my SuperStickies....

You know, thank goodness for these "Me-me's" or I would be at a loss for what to write about sometimes!! Seriously, I am usually one who can NOT shut up (my mom used to say that you could put me next to a bookshelf and I would still be talking); but sometimes when I sit in front of this blog, thinking about what to write, I am just B-L-A-N-K...... Finally, I have a place to freely express myself, without anyone butting in or acting like they don't care..... and nothing.... Go figure!!!!

Anyway, this is one of my favorite posts..... fast and easy....and to the point!!!

Be sure to go check out more of these fun post-its at SUPAH's HOUSE!!!!

Oh and one more.........................

Yes......... my sweet little lady cried for about 30 (yes, you heard me T-H-I-R-T-Y) minutes because we couldn't find her Dora roller skates and she wanted to skate with her brothers....
She cried and cried and cried and cried......and yea, I was ready to pull out every single strand of hair from my head.
So, I did what every good mother would do (wink-wink)-- I made her go into her room so she could calm down; and by that I mean, I put her in there so I could gather my sanity ;-)

After a few minutes, it was quiet---- she did calm down and stopped crying..... I won, right?? She listened to me and learned how to handle her emotions........ No, she just fell asleep!!!

All About MeMe--- Self Portrait

I'm sure you have all missed reading my "All About MeMe's" since I am just so interesting....; so to oblige your request--- here you go (no...I'm not really that narcissistic):

Hosted by SupahMommy and MommyBrain

This is really truly an "All About Me" post.... I am supposed to show a self-portrait and/or explain myself in 1,000 words.... Wow, I wonder if I could even think of that much stuff to say about myself (and that's coming from someone who doesn't usually shut-up) ;-)

I was going through all of my pictures, trying to find one of just ME, and I really couldn't find any.... You all know that when you have kids, you are usually the one behind the camera and are rarely ever seen yourself!!! Anyway, I found these pictures taken by Angie one evening at Smokey Bones for dinner....

Soooooo...... I am a pretty silly, easy going, laid-back person... I do have my moments where someone will piss me off and then I feel like I have to get it off my chest or I will explode (figuratively, of course); but for the most part I try to let things just slide off my back.

I can hold a conversation with someone, while I am also dealing with one of the kids....and cooking and cleaning...and running around trying to get something done. And the funny thing is, it all stays in order in my head....

I am a very loyal girlfriend and friend.... I will do anything for somebody that I care about.... I will always help out when I can... I love to make people happy and smile!!!

I am a pretty defensive person though.... even though I think I can handle constructive (or any) criticism, I still feel like I have to defend myself constantly... WHY??? I don't know, but I wish I could stop it!! (Unfortunately, that is one of the traits that CJ picked up from me.... blah).

I love to read James Patterson books, play Bejewled Blitz (i know, I'm a dork) on my computer, scrapbook, and do things with Joe and my children.... A perfect weekend for me, is to sleep in and lay around for a litte while, eat a yummy breakfast made by Joe (since he is king breakfast maker), lay around a little longer while the kids are getting dressed and playing, and then all of us go out and spend the day together.... (I wish I was doing that NOW)!!

Well, there you have it..... I feel like I was in an interview.... Did I get the job--- will you be my friend...?

A true friend is somebody that you can turn to for ANYTHING.... someone who is there for you through thick and thin!!! They listen to you when you need an ear and they trust you enough to share their innermost feelings!!
They understand you and support you..... and when you get upset with each other, true friends talk it out...don't hold grudges.... love each other!!
A true friend is like your family!!!

It's funny how sometimes you have an eye-opening experience that reminds you who your TRUE friends are and who are NOT!!
