Where do babies come from?

So last night me and my son are watching Friday Night Lights season 2 on DVD.  In the first episode, Tammy is having a baby.  She’s in the hospital pushing and then voila the baby pops out and is given to her and Coach Taylor.  Dylan has the awful look on his face and says….Mommy, you pee them out????  This is an improvement over his belief a few years ago that they come out of the belly button, so say yep! They sure do.  He’ll have enough time to learn the real stuff.  🙂

Tooth Number Dos!

My son lost tooth number too this morning.  He was sleeping in my bed and at 5am, says mom mom….I lost my tooth LOL.  I’m scared to death thinking he’s bleeding or hurt. Nope, just lost a tooth.  Then he says “mom if I put this under my pillow now, do you think the tooth fairy will come??”  Nope babe, sure don’t….you lost it today, so you are gonna have to do it tonight.  “aw man”  Funniest thing!

Labor Day Weekend 2010

Well another holiday weekend comes and goes.  This one was a great one like many I’ve had before.  Spent with people I love doing some of the things we love, together.

One of the big things, is finding my first sharks tooth EVER!  It is about 1.5″ long and an 1″ wide.  I also found a ‘bird’ that comes out of the sand dollars if you happen to break one.  I also found two other sharks teeth, but they were way smaller.

We are also known as the “crab hunters” as far as my son is concerned.  We went out on the beach at night with our flashlights and searched for crabs and ghost crabs that live in the loose sand.  My son would think chase them back to the water or sand, whichever way they would go.  As we were walking along, I happened to see one VERY close to us and I grabbed him so he wouldn’t step on it.  He screamed so loud and ran back to nanee!  So funny!

We also came back home a different way than 40 and we saw two very funny things.  We saw a field that had 4-5 buffaloes and also a front lawn that had a regulation size football goal post that had Christmas tree lights around it.  You might be a redneck if…….

All in all, it was a great time and I can’t wait to go back again and again.  I hope all of my friends were able to do things they love with people they love this weekend.

July 4th 2010 – weekend of fun in the sun!

So this weekend was taken as 4 days to a beach I’ve never been to before, Sunset Beach, NC.  It’s almost in SC, which is awesome because we went shopping at the outlets in SC.  We also visited Ocean Isle, Oak Island, Myrtle Beach, and were going to try Bald Head Island.  Ocean Isle turned out to be the most memorable, but not because of anyone special, just a THING that was scary.  D and I were in the edge of the water and I looked out where the waves were breaking in front of us.  There was a gray dorsal fin sticking out of the water and it went back and forth a few times.  I could see the length of the animal, which was about 3-4 feet.  I stood there in shock for a few moments and then yanked D out of the way, back onto the sand.  One of the scariest moments of my life.

But at this place I also had another memorable experience.  One that makes me as a mom, know I’m doing something right.  Dylan and I were walking down the beach picking up shells (he LOVES oyster shells).  He stopped and said “don’t look mommy”.  Sometimes this is a scary thing because you NEVER know what is going to happen when you turn around. LOL  But instead of scary I had the sweetest thing ever…..he wrote in the sand with a shell “I LOVE YOU”.  Of course I didn’t have a camera, but it will be in my heart forever.  I love you too D and you will always be my baby boy.

Some stress is good for motivation and some is not…….

I’ve been having chest pain since mid-March and I have had an upper GI done and it came back with nothing really abnormal. I’ve just been given some meds to reduce the acid production in my stomach.  He said it’s stress related, now before this week I would have said nah, I’m ok, but this week has brought it back with a vengeance.

One of my elementary school friends committed suicide and left 3 young boys at home.  Even if you think there is no other way to live life, there is always another option than that.

Got some ppwk that I wasn’t expecting and I have someone that continues to lie to me even though I expect different behavior.  Since I’m honest with people I expect the same and I don’t think that’s too much to ask for.

Making a change…………..one of many

So I have decided to join a gym.  I’ve missed it really since I stopped about 1.5 years ago. I lost 30 lbs and felt pretty good.  I would really like to loose that before this summer is here.  Even just going for the first time last night I feel better.  It’s amazing what those little endorphin thingys do for you. 😉


Hopefully, this will be a change in the right direction and only spur on other good things in my life.

Decision to Change

So I have made a decision to join a GYM!!  I don’t take it lightly and it is by no means a “new years resolution”…..no one really stands by them anyways.  So last night was my first night and it felt SOOOOO good.  I forgot how good it feels to get the blood pumping.

February Madness

So the month has come to show how much we LOVE our special someone.  Well this year I’ve kind of become anti valentines day.  Why should we just share this on ONE day of year?  If you feel so great about this someone, show them love all the year long.  We take for granted our loved ones and in a moment they can be gone forever until we see them again on the other side.  I am also guilty of this and as the saying goes, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.


I think the snow and being in the house so much has really effected my mood the past week or so.  I have also become enlightened by things that were unknown before and it has again stirred my anger.  When I feel angry I no longer feel in control of my emotions. I feel if I cry or show anger, this is letting someone else have control over me and I’m NOT ok with that.  Summer needs to get here ASAP so the flip flop season can officially begin.


Well, as you may or may not know, tomorrow is my 32nd.  It’s hard to believe that I’m in my early 30s now.  However, as I come to my birthday this year, I look back on everything that I’ve been through and accomplished this past year since my 31st.  I’m now living on my own with Dylan in Clayton.  I’ve paid off all my credit card debt.  I have a new vehicle.  I sold the 4 wheeler.  My credit rating is coming up.  I haven’t sold the house in Garner yet. I’m a single mom 24/7.  I look forward to seeing what this year has in store for me.

Our move to Clayton was I good one and at the right time I believe.  December 14th of 2008 was the end of part of my life so it would be fitting that on December 15th of 2009 I move into my new place.  Some of the goals I have for the year are to leave the anger behind and to be more ok with where I am.  I’m here for a reason I just need to embrace it and move on.  I want to pay off my college loans finally.  Slowly but surely I’m getting this train on the tracks.  I’m thankful, so thankful for my friends and family.
