I can’t believe I forgot it…..

I forgot my purse at home!

I have to state this from the very beginning, I do not have a dainty little clutch purse. I have a ‘mom’ purse. It looks more like a mini duffel bag than an actual purse. It contains just about anything and everything that I could possibly need. This includes but is not limited to – 2 organizers (one ends in August and one starts in August), straws, mini chocolates, a pair of socks, a magic marker, a Tide pen (usually needed right after the magic marker), safety pins, band aids, several balls and my cell phone at the very bottom.

Because my purse contains a small convenience store, I take it with me everywhere. So I don’t understand how I could have forgotten it. In the mornings I have three bags that leave with me; my purse, my lunch bag and the daycare bag. Some how today I only left with two and I didn’t realize it until I went to get my purse this morning.

Once I realized it was missing I went into hyper panic mode and tore my desk apart looking for it. When I couldn’t find it here, I called the hubby in a panic, and he did a quick sweep of the living room and found it right beside the front door. He dropped it off on his way to work, and I feel better now, because if anyone here gets a paper cut, I am prepared. :0)

Hell’s Kitchen video game!

I am such a geek, I am so excited about the Hell’s Kitchen video game for the Wii coming out this fall .

Usually I am not into video games nor am I game savvy, my gaming is limited to Super Mario Brothers for the original Ninetendo system. But this game may change all that. Apparently, you are supposed to prepare dishes for chef Ramsey and if they are not up to his standards then you reacts the way he does in the show.

So a virtual Ramsey is going to call me a donkey!!! Or maybe even a cow!!!
I can’t wait!

In case of emergencies

Always have a swim suit ready!

OK, so this only really applies to the summer. But it is a very important piece of clothing that should be accessible at all times and I learned that the hard way.

One afternoon, when the line up was too long at Wonderland, we decided to head over to Wild Water Kingdom. There was barely anyone there; I think they were all at Wonderland. The kids changed into their swimsuits but we didn’t have ours. So we had to go chasing after two very active kids, through all sorts of wading pools and fountains in our denim Capri’s and t-shirts.

By the end of it we were soaked!

Now I always carry a swim suit with me, just in case.

Completely and utterly exhausted!!

It’s been a crazy weekend/ beginning of the week. We flew out to NYC last Thursday a.m. and flew back on Sunday night. But this was no restful holiday. We were in town for a wedding, and had a whole lot of running to do. Baybee did good on the plane, he slept all the way there and the majority of the way back home. And while we were there he was fairly well behaved. He had his moments where he would have some meltdowns and go stir crazy but all in all he was better than I expected.

Me other the other hand, was not as well behaved. I am a good flyer generally, but I have never flown with a thirteen month old. I was wound tighter than a top, and ready to snap at just about anybody. I was frazzled from the get go and just ready to come home by the end of the weekend. I think it was all the running. I tend to be hyper – organized and disorganization is one of my pet peeves. I like schedules and sticking to them, but there wasn’t much of that this weekend. I really need a restful vacay with nothing to do but just chillax, but for right now I am glad to be home.

A note on the wedding ~ it really was wonderful. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a ton of fun. I was honoured to be there to share in the day(s) and even though I was as cranky as I was, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Oh magic lamp *rub, rub, rub*

My three wishes are:

  1. A house that cleans itself. That includes doing the laundry and washing the dishes.
  2. 10 hours of continous sleep
  3. Chocolate to be one of the four food groups.

*tapping lamp*

Hello?!? Anyone in there?!?

*no answer*

Oh well, it looks like that didn’t work, I have to go back to work now.

I don’t feel so good

Last night I had a Burger King chicken sandwich, medium fries and a large Sprite for dinner. I know that it is probably loaded with trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, has about a million calories, and enough sodium to salt the roads during a major snowstorm; but it just tasted so good.

Now, I feel so yucky. Usually I am not a very health conscious person, but lately I haven’t been eating as well as I should be, and I’ve been feeling pretty icky. I figure that my crappy eating is resulting in my crappy health and so I have jumped into hyper healthy mode.

My resolutions are as follows:

  1. No more fast food (or at least not as often),
  2. More veggies
  3. And lots more water.
  4. Try to cut out sweets (which would be like giving up breathing for me)
  5. Try to walk for about thirty minutes a day.

I know it’s not much but hey, its a start and hopefully I will start feeling better soon. I’ll have updates every so often about how I am doing, and if I am sticking with my plan.

You know you’re a mom when….

5. You know the words to Wiggles songs.
4. You use baby terms such as potty or baba in conversations with other adults and are shocked when you realize that they don’t consider them real words.
3. You cut up your food into tiny bite size pieces.
2. You can discuss projectile vomiting or diarrhea without gagging.
1. You have gone number 2 with a one year old in the bathroom with you.
