Overload

I am officially sick. It seems like I always get sick when there is a lot of stuff going on. I an glad that my ebay is going well. We are trying to move. There is easter coming up. Texas has his birthday next week. My sister in law is getting married. AND WHAT? The state of California is garnishing our wages!
We called our payroll to see what is going on and the pay roll didn't know anything about it but there was a phone number to call. My hubby called the phone number and they said that they can't do anything for three months! The person on the line wasn't even able to tell us what it was for. He was on the phone for an hour and a half! We paid California taxes last year too. GRRRR. That's 300 dollars for three months? Ugh, California is stupid. That amount of money throws us in debt 12 dollars a month before food and gas. We know that there is another guy with the same name as my husband that was born on the same day... if this is because that guy I am going to hunt him down and kick him in his balls! I know that Spencer has not been married before and doesn't have any other children floating around!
This just motivates me to move out to Texas sooner! Texas is going to save us THOUSANDS! There is no income tax, property taxes are lower, we have already transfered some bills out there and our bills are lower out there too. We are saving over $800 dollars every six months and we have an extra person on our car insurance. It's also nice knowing that our utilities are going to be a couple hundred instead of a thousand a month. We know the state of California is in debt, but taking that out on the working people is terrible! It's like a dream to run away from California♥

Marilyn's Easter Dress


Marilyn and I picked out her Easter dress the other day. It's so obvious that she picked out her dress. I even tried getting her to pick other dresses. I kept on holding up two dresses at a time and saying, "Which one? This one, or this one?"
Sure enough, she picked the one that's mostly bright pink.
I made some matching bows. I think she'll just wear one at a time because she can't wear pigtails because of her latest haircut from her brother. I think I got into the habit of making two bows at a time because it's more orderly to have a set of bows. She'll be so stinkin' cute in her dress.

I picked out some pants for Texas. He doesn't need a new shirt for Easter. He does need new Sunday shoes though.

Something else. We are moving and also have a wedding to go to right before Easter. I really don't want the Easter basket junk. I think we'll just do eggs and jellybeans. What does everyone put in Easter baskets?

Payment Unreceived

One of my friends sister in laws wanted some diapers. So I told her I would sell them to her at cost. It's two month later and I still have not received payment for the diapers. She has had the diapers for the two months. I know it's only two diapers, but for those two diapers, I need to make a profit on six sales to make the money back. Do people not see this? Now I can't go on anyones good will and I need to get the money before I send out the item. I know that there are times where I screw up and I'll try to fix my problems.
Maybe I should email her and tell her that I want the price of the diapers at retail price because she's taking so stinking long to pay. Ugh... maybe I should give her what she wants and I should leave her alone and let her feel guilty. What do you think I should do?

I'm Thankful For...

I have had a bug coming on for about a week now. The last time I was sick was in the beginning of January so I shouldn't complain too much. As of today, I am officially sick but, with the deal that I found a couple months ago I have a year supply of cough drops. I'm glad I don't need to schedule a trip to the drug store and I can just relax at home.

Cuddle Bug


Little Miss Marilyn wasn't in her bed this morning. Most nights she wakes up and tries to crawl into my bed. Right after she crawls into our bed we walk her back to her bed and tuck her back into bed. This morning she wasn't in my bed and she wasn't in her bed. She went to the one place that she knew she wouldn't be sent back to her own bed. Texas is out cold and I am not sure if her realizes that Marilyn is laying right next to him.

Rocksprings, Texas

Half of the town of Rocksprings Texas came to introduce themselves. I think they were just curious to to see what we were doing. With all of the small town pride that there is out there, they invited us to move there.
Rocksprings is a little town that is in the center of Texas. There are about 2000 people that live in the county. I went to the post office and the post office is only open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Those are the only days that the mail gets sent out too. When I went into the post office, there wasn't a single person there, when I walked out there were five.
It is a town that everyone knows everyone. Met the 4 people that worked at the doctors office. The doctor does house calls. While we were there the town electrician drove past and saw a truck that he didn't recognize and wanted to see what was going on.
We went to go pick up some diapers at the grocery store and they had two people working: one was a cashier and the other was stocking the shelves. The same thing, I waled in and there were just the two workers there, when I walked out four old men made a line behind me and started chatting about how one owes him money.
It made me feel special that they wanted to see what was going on but I am not sure if I would be able to take it every single day. Thanks for the hospitality Rocksprings.

Fun Bum Diapers

http://funbumdiapers.blogspot.com/

I just started a cloth diaper blog for all of the cloth diapering mommas out there. I picked out a name for the diapers and I was thinking that I'm ready to take another baby step forward. There isn't much on the blog. Now this blog will just be myself venting about one thing or another, the fun bum blog will be about diapers and diapering needs.

Enjoy!

To Do

I have so many things to do this week. I have the normal mom things to do this week like cook and clean and tend the children, but then I have the other things. I need to get out all of my ebay things this week, I am in charge of preschool this week, I need to pack, I need go to Kenpo, we still need to do our taxes and I want to get a mani-pedi like I told my mom I would.
The count down is on. We official move in three weeks, but I only have two week of prep before we go. I have not told any of my family because I don't want to jinx it. So if you are family reading this pretend like never heard anything.
We are in town this week, next week we are going to be looking for houses, and the week after we will be back in town and we'll give Texas a birthday party before we leave. Oh, and a week after we move, we'll be going out to Utah for my sister in law's wedding.

I hope at the end of April I can get a little bit of a vacation. I also want to downsize and get rid of a bunch of stuff that I have. I want to take with us on the move all of the year storage and all of the basics, that's it. All of the toys and things that we never use I want to get rid of.

Fundaes

I was cleaning up some school glue that was dumped on the carpet when my children decided to give themselves hair cuts.
When the school glue got dumped out I was cleaning up yogurt all over the kitchen floor buy a child that jumped on a yogurt cup.
She jumped on a yogurt cup when I was cleaning up some rice that she opened with her teeth.
When I was cleaning up the rice, she decided to dump out a box of teddy grams just to step on them and hear them crunch.
When I was cleaning up the teddy grams that were smashed into the carpet, she was chewing up oreo's and spitting them inches away from the wall to make a art.

After all of this damage that only took about an hour of destruction, I had enough. I called my husband yelling because I couldn't keep up with everything. A day without naps is a day without a break for mother.

The house is not restored to it's original state and I am letting my kids have silly haircuts for a while. I need a breath of fresh air at times and yesterday was that day.

Blah.

I don't know if any of you readers ever have frequent visitors coming over to use your house as a hotel. Because we are part of a company it's more affordable for us to have people stay at our house than to pay for a hotel. So that is the way it works at our house and that's the way it's been for a long time and I can handle that.
This is the part I can't handle. We have a worker and his little family staying at our home, and the mother is a stay at home mom. She's lazy beyond reason. I admit that I like to take brakes every once in a while, but an all day break never happens.
Yesterday she said that she needed to do some laundry. So I showed her our washer and dryer. This morning she said that she wasn't able to do any laundry because we didn't have the right kind of soap so I invited her to go to the store with me while I was running errands. Nine miles away from the closest El Pollo Loco she ask if we can go there for lunch. I don't have the time or the money so I tell her no.
Later on it's quite time at my house so both of my kids are up stairs while I vacuum and prepare dinner before I head off to my kenpo class. I don't mind if you ask what I'm making for dinner, but if you are going to say that you don't want to eat it, I'm going to agree and tell you that you don't have to have any.
While I an doing my chores and the kids are having "quite time" I ask her not to let her baby upstairs because the kids should be napping. She is playing her games on her phone while her little one crawls upstairs. Sure enough after a few minutes of her baby being upstairs and I am in the kitchen cooking she wanders upstairs to check on her baby and claims that Marilyn was choking her. Choking with a hug, I can believe because Marilyn likes to give hugs, neck-tie no.
She comes down stairs, hides in the bathroom and makes a phone call to who know's. Our walls are thin and I can hear everything! She was taking smack on you know who! ME! She was saying things like, "I'm not getting any help with her [my daughter]", I think the person on the other line asked what I was doing all day and she said, "I don't know? playing on facebook?" and "I need someone to help me with my laundry".
For real? She never asked for help! Why do I need to do your laundry? Anywho, it's your kid, you need to take care of her. Oh, and you know damn well that I wasn't playing on facebook, stop making up damn stories.

I took my time coming home from kenpo to avoid seeing her because I was so pissed off about her making the phone call and not asking me for any help.

To find out after I got home, once I walked out the door she started crying because she's helpless. My husband got home right after I left and sat through three hours of her crying about how it's ok for me to tell her kid what to do in my house but at the same time she can't do anything about my kids. Ugh, I wish she would just listen to me and watch her own kid. I tell her kid not to do things so she won't get hurt FYI. I seriously want to yell and scream at her because of her little pity party. My husband told me that I need to make her feel welcomed because she doesn't know anyone out here. She is not making it easy for me.

She just left so her husband could work in Northern California and I feel so relieved. Just to let you know I am not being a super bitch about this whole thing or exaggeration one bit on this story. I should be thankful that my life is not one bit boring.
