I am a wife and mother and even though I’m not the best at either I try to be, because I love my husband and kids the most.
I miss my family. Having Amanda here in Utah has been the greatest but I still REALLY miss my family.
I think about being organized EVERY single day.
I know I’m a Child of God.
I want to go on an exotic vacation with Trent.
I have a hard time saying NO to anybody. HELP!
I search the Internet almost everyday. I couldn’t function without it.
I wish I was a morning person. (So does Trent) I have never been, but have always tried.
I hate slow drivers. They drive me crazy.
I am scared of walking into a room alone and not knowing anyone. I’ve been a loner most of my life and it has always scared me to even think about going somewhere I don’t know anyone.
I fear the dentist, losing a child or my husband, scary movies, someone knocking on my door when my house is messy, and driving in the snow.
I always have stacks of papers on my kitchen counter. Another reason I think about being organized ALL the time.
I love my family.
I feel sad when I hear about a kid getting picked on at school. Bullies suck!
I hear Viva La Vida for the bazillionth time on the kids computer.
I smell my dog. Yuck!
I don't always wash my face before I go to bed. I’m usually to tired to do anything but fall into bed. Gross huh?
I wonder all the time how my life would have been different if I had been born at different time. Crazy, but I have this fascination with the past.
I care about what people think of me. I know it shouldn’t matter but it does, to me.
I regret not keeping better record of my children’s accomplishments. I have never been a good record keeper. In fact Tucker never got a baby book. How bad is that?
I am not good at keeping my mouth shut. I have gotten a little better, especially with Trent. I just can’t keep ALL my thoughts bottled up in my head, can I?
I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I have never doubted it and I am thankful for that testimony. In the name of…..
I dance in my mind all the time. I used to dance when I was younger but since then not so much. I would love to dance with my husband but he doesn’t like to so much.
I sing all the time. It has been my life for so long I can’t think of a day I haven’t sung. I’ve done it for a living, I’ve done it for fun. I LOVE TO SING!
I write on the computer and that’s about it. I have always HATED my handwriting and therefore avoid ever having to write anything. I would rather type it out and print it.
I win nothing. I just don’t have that kind of luck.
I dream of singing on Broadway one day. I’m a total Musical nerd and love to listen and watch all musicals. If I could choose what kind of music to sing it would have to be Broadway.
I lose my mind when my kids fight with each other. It drives me nuts.
I never make my bed when I get up in the morning. If it does get made it’s later in the day or just before I go to bed. Stupid huh? No just lazy.
I listen to ALL kinds of music. I love it when I hear a new song or when one of my siblings makes me a CD of new songs. I can’t live without my music.
I can usually be found on the computer these days. I need to start limiting my computer time.
I read very little. It’s not that I don’t like to read it’s just that I don’t make the time for reading. But when I do I always enjoy it, especially if it has to do with Vampires & Werewolves. I also really like self help books. I need a lot of help.
I am happy when my husband and children are Happy.

So now for what happened...NOTHING! They never told me that there was a chance that they would not be able to serve the court papers to the defendant. So it wasn't till I got all the way down there and didn't see my name on the docket that I was told this news. Apparently the jig is up and they know they are trying to track them down. It could take awhile to get these jerks served. For the meantime I have another court date of Nov. 13th. At least I have a little more time to track down my star witness and give more thought to that perfect outfit. Thanks for suggestions.

So here's my story line. My best frousin (that's friend+cousin) planned this really cool "girls trip" to Seattle with an incredible detour to Forks. Yes THE Forks. Anyhow, I unfortunately am not able to go due to a previous engagement (aka going to see my Sis in Tuscan, AZ, also an amazing "girls trip".) BTW didn't something from those Twilight books happen in AZ, hum! After my rather vocal protest and jealous outburst I expressed my feelings of being "left out." Boy did that open a whole can of worms. To make a rather boring story, short... My SIL, the one who ignored my email and is going on the previously mentioned "girls trip" sent me THIS:
Wha ? For ME?
Is it possible?
It is, it is, it really is!!!!!!
You can see why it is affectionately named the "Pooh Loaf".
I Let the kids each have a turn at holding it and playing with it and then it too took its rightful place next to the fine china.
I too would like to thank Jenny, who made this all possible, my spell check who makes me look so smart and never fails to interpret that unrecognizable word, Landee (even though I've never been formally introduced or acknowledged), and most of all my dear SIL who made the sweetest gesture of all. Thank you!

Yesterday I was driving the kids and there friends to Brigg's football game and this is the conversation I heard in the backseat between Micah and his friend.
Friend: "Did you know that someone dies like every single minute of everyday?'
Friend: "Ya, but that's okay because there's a baby born like every minute of every day too."
Micah: "Oh, that's why there's always that new baby smell in the air."
Love you Micah!

Me: "Okay Tuck it's time to get ready and go run some errands."
T: "WHAT? I don't want to go. I'm staying here."
Me: "No, you have to go. I can't just leave you here. Some BAD guy might come and get you."
T: "Okay, fine but you have to buy me some candy."
Me: "No, I'm not going to buy you candy and you better hurry up or you're not going to get to play with Deklin later." (Deklin is his BFF.)
T: " Okay then, I'm gonna get lost."
Me: " Oh ya, well maybe the policeman will find you and put you in jail."
T: "You're the meanest Mom EVER."
Me: "Oh ya."
T: " I think I will just jump out of the car when you're driving."
Me: "Okay you do that, now come on we have to go." (Note to self: CHILD LOCK)
Now I can just go run my errands while he is at preschool and don't have to worry about buying him candy, losing him in the store, or him attempting to jump out of the car. What a little stinker. He does have his moments though.
