Acne

My face is breaking out like I'm 15 again. I am sure that it's a combination of stress and diet that is doing this. I have so many stress factors so I think I'm not even going to start telling you what they are. See, I am not telling you any of my drama. This is the only time that this is going to happen.

Stupid Thyroid

My thyroid is acting up. My fingers are all fat. My hair seems to be falling out like crazy and it's starting to look like I am balding. My muscles are sore. I have Charley horses. I think the reason for my skin being itchy is because all of my peach fuzz is brittle and giving me little tiny ingrown hairs all over my body or that my body is finally rejecting body hair. On top of all of these little things it feels like someone is choking me because my thyroid is a little bit enlarged. It doesn't look different in the mirror, it just feels like it.
I guess I feel better than I did a couple weeks ago when I had the flu. I'm just feeling run down. Thanks for letting me vent.

Dinosaur Shirts Coming Out My Ears













I made a shirt for my daughter and I posted it on facebook. Now I am getting request for shirts. Some of the shirts are coming super cute.
The one with the tiara needs some fixing but other than that all of the shirts are cute.

My Tap Water Smells Funny

This might be one of the weirdest things you have ever heard but when I'm pregnant tap water sets me off. My husband thinks it's a riot that I can't even wash my hands throughly, because when I try I start gagging and puke in the sink.
What I'm trying to get at is that the water at this hotel stinks. The water was turned off a couple weeks ago and I can not handle the smell of the tap water. Maybe my nose is super sensitive? Or maybe it's that the water smells funny. I am 99.8% sure that I am not pregnant. Yes, I do dry heave when I get a whiff of the smell of the water here. I can't describe the smell to a point. It's a dusty smell not like the smell of rain or an air conditioner. I like the smell of air conditioning with a brand new clean filter. Do you want to hear a secret? I think I get the air filter changed on my car every other oil change just because I like the smell. Gosh, I am weird. The water still smells funny, how do you fix that?

Giving In

So about a week ago I was saying how good I was for not spending money on clothes for my daughter. Now this week my husband points out that all of the pants that she has are too small. Go figure.
We put an offer on a house but they excepted someone else's offer. It was crushing that we didn't get the house that we wanted. I loved the lot. The house was so much better than our California house.
Because we didn't get the house we are able to spend a little bit. Marilyn will be able to get some pants that don't flood. Because I have been selling on eBay I was able to use my Palpal account to transfer money and it won't seem like any money is missing out of our checking account.

Tomorrow we start a background check for renting an apartment. We are sick of living out of hotels. The apartment wants a six month lease. The last time we rented we were put through the ringer. I dislike renting but we need some more room to breathe.
In the meantime we hope to save up enough money to pay cash for a lot, and cash for a house. I guess this is just wishful thinking.

Q&A:


Why do so many white people adopt black babies?

Seriously I have people ask me this question. Both of my kids are mine. The question has only been asked by black people. It's weird.

Answer: Black babies are way cuter than white babies. There! I said it!
Most people that adopt out of their race would love any child that will come into their family. Be honored!

Refrain From What?


I don't know if any one else has this problem, when I get a really good coupon in my email I want to use it. The other day Gymboree sent out 30% off coupons and they are having their earn gymbucks promotion: when you spend 50 you get a coupon of $25 to spend later. I have to be honest and that coupon is calling my name.
I found this cute little dress that Marilyn would like and some shirts that Texas would like. Right now both of my kids have boxes of clothes that are in storage and the clothes fit them. We are also living out of a hotel with out a shipping address and pinching our pennies for the new house that we get. So I did what's best and told myself not to buy the cloths no matter how much they would like them.
I feel like because I did this I am a better person, even if everyone does this same kind of thing every day.
Some of the money that I didn't spend went to supply me with diapers (I am running really low but last week people bought over $400 worth. Sad that my supply is so low, low like 20 diapers when I normally have about 100, happy for all of the cloth bums!). Some of the other money wen't to the house fund.

Wish us luck on everything!

I Miss Him

My husband has been working some crazy long hours the past few week. Normally he works about 70 hours which is above average. I love that he is willing to work so hard for our family. Right now every braking second that he is awake he is working.
Because he's been working so hard I didn't get to have him around for Mother's Day. I am cooped up with two children in a little hotel for Mother's Day: Oh, joy. When I went to church I had a couple of people ask me where my husband was, I said that he was working, and then I said that he was out of town. Why do people need to ask if it's depressing that a spouse is gone? It wasn't depressing until they brought it up. Before they brought it up, the holiday was any other day.
Sorry for the sarcastic tone. At this moment in my life I only get to see my husband for a couple hours on the weekend when the kids are around and then he is off to work again. Because he hasn't been getting enough sleep he's been cranky beyond reason so I am the only one that really wants to be around him.

On a better note: Luckily, because I went to church I got some phone numbers for realtor's in the aria. Because our current realtor isn't on the ball when it comes to getting things done, I thought that we needed a new one. I also hope that this week the kids can go to a couple of play dates before my hair starts coming out in chunks.
Texas told me that the girl that he sat next to in church was "beautiful". She has glasses and told me that she was five: too cute. Marilyn flicked the light switches during sacrament meeting and was making machine gun noises: go figure, she has a brother. After church Texas was playing leap frog in the hall and another mother thought that it was her kid because she was just saw it through the corner of her eye. I think we will fit in the aria just fine.

Soundless Sunday

I Kid You Not!


There are room that are filled with young teenage girls on the same floor as me. You would think it's enough to be knock-knock ditched a couple times in the middle of the night. This morning I discovered why they are here. They are here for Dance competition. What kind of dance? Clogging! I woke up to my neighbors practicing clogging.
I even googled competitions out in this aria and I found it:

I think it's funny more than anything. I am glad that the girls are doing something good for them. It's just really weird that I woke up to clogging.

Playlist

I first listened to Jessie J - Price Tag ft. B.o.B.
That song reminded me of City High so I listed to Carmel.
The video had Eve in it so I looked up her song Satisfaction.
Her little basketball dress made me think of her in the video with Gwen Stephani.
I skipped "Blow ya Mind" and now I am going to watch her Bananas video or "Hollaback". Thought that I should cool down the mood because it's late and watched her "Cool" video.
I'll admit I have a girl crush on Gwen. Seeing all of the beautiful magazine like faces in Gwen's video I think I should watch one of the newer Spice Girl videos and I can only think of one new song that they have "Friendship Never Ends". I don't have a clue what they mean in that song when they say, "lets make the headlines". Maybe they just needed some words that were not copyrighted.
I thought I needed something more soulful: Nat King Cole, Please be available for me. Unforgettable is a lovely song. I listed to that song.
Nature Boy is a great song too but I think Moulin Rouge did a better job with it. I love how they covered it. Yes. I listed to Nature Boy. I googled that Cover and it was done by David Bowie. Who Knew?
Now it's some Adele. That girl loves some revenge. She's the 21st centry Alanis Morissette. I would hate to be her ex. Adele has some wonderful vocal chords. I would love to see her sing in person.
Going to KT Tunstall, "Big Black Horse and The Cherry Tree". I think I'm done for the night. Well, maybe after some Jackson 5. My mind is all over the place tonight.

I wanted to share my playlist because normally it's just one single genre like Pop, classic or Country. I think tonight my taste for music was well rounded. I started with Pop and now I think I have circled and came around to the opposite genre. Tomorrow I can go back to my Lily Allen and Blondy.
