belated goodbye

Ya, so I've been gone for awhile, but I thought if anyone still cared I should offer an official farewell. I love blogging, I love the bloggy friends I met, the moms I related to, the relationships formed, but I'll be honest....It was an addiction. An addiction that was taking away from my family. If you've read my blog at all, you know I don't manage my time well. I am a full-time teacher and mother, and I wasn't giving my kids the attention they deserved. Ya, I miss it sometimes, but I hands down made the right decision to prioritize and make a cut. Kudos to you awesome moms who manage your time so well. I'm not one of them. Never have been. And sorry to say most likely never will be. Farewell bloggy friends. Jesus if the way, the truth, and the life, and I look forward to meeting you in heaven some day. :)

come back to me!

Okay sometimes you have to quit something to make you realize what you had. I'M NOT READY! I can't just quit. No, I'm not around much, but I can make it better! So scratch the last post, I'm not going to quit blogging completely, I just can't.

Now that we have that out of the way. I need to vent. This is our first month on Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, and I totally excited. For meal planning I bought a 3-month-subscription to e-mealz.com. We got the low-carb plan. I just went to the store and spent NINETY-THREE DOLLARS on 4 meals plus a few staples like milk, bread and peanut butter! SERIOUSLY?!? Uh, not exactly in the budget. I was completely disappointed. Hubby thinks we should buy a month's worth of groceries but I can't decide. I spent over an hour at the store and I'm NOT doing that every week!

How do you meal plan?

Oh and more on my total money makeover later.

so long my dear friends

My blogging time has come to an end. I just can't keep up with it anymore. Maybe when school gets out I can step back into it. We'll see. Thank you for all the friendships! It has been an awesome journey! I will visit!

dog dilemma! HELP!

I need your help. To make a long story shorter, Hubby brought home a 5 month "Heinz 57" dog on Thursday night that he adopted from the shelter. He is thought to be a lab/boxer mix but no one knows for sure. Several people, including a dog trainer and pet store owner think he has pit bull in him.

When Hubby heard that he took the dog back, but we ended up picking him back up later. There's no way to actually prove he's pit without very expensive genetic testing.

He's a very laid back dog! Just lays around and lets the kids just do whatever. He won't play or anything though. This worries me. Is he going to turn on us? He's done absolutely nothing to make us think he could be dangerous, but I just don't know what to do. If we take him back the kids will be devastated. I keep telling myself to give him time to adjust to his new environment, but I just don't know.

i miss you

Oh how I miss you my dear friends. Things will happen throughout the day and I think, "I'm gonna go home and blog about this." BUT DO I? No. My people in review is WAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY behind! When I finally do it it'll be a long one!

Since I last made an appearance Otter turned 7. We had a huge Iron Man party complete with a bounce house and 20 kids! Good times good times.

Today The Baby is one year old. Everyone always says it goes so fast but WHOA, it goes so fast.

As soon as school gets out for Christmas I'm planning a big giveaway and review week so stay tuned for more info on that!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Love love love!

get it on the computer

Otter's 7th birthday is coming up and he's all into Kung Zhu pets. I informed my mom what he wanted and this is the conversation she had with Otter over the phone.

Mom: Otter, I have a question for you and wondered if I might ask your opinion.

Otter: Sure, Grandma. What’s up?

Mom: Well I’ve been looking at some Zhu pets and I really don’t know what they’re about.

Otter: Oh Grandma, they’re awesome!

Mom: Well I’ve been thinking about how you don’t pick up your toys and how things get lost so fast and how they get broken. Sometimes when you say you really want something, you really don’t care about it when you get it.

Otter: Oh Grandma, you will not believe how responsible I would be. I would build a container at After School Club to keep them in. It would never be a problem. Oh Grandma, I really want the Special Forces . . . . . {and on and on and on} Do you have your computer handy?

Mom: I saw something about a hamster set? Is that what you want?

Otter: Awesome! They’re like little mice. Oh yeah, hamsters. That’s it. And . . . and . . . and . . .something about Ninja . . . and . . . {His description went on and on with intense enthusiasm.}

Otter: And there’s a thing like a house.

Mom: An arena?

Otter: That’s exactly it. How did you know? Did you see it on the computer or in real life? I know that where you live is a long way to drive to Sidney?

Me: Sidney? What’s in Sidney?

Otter: Well that’s where my friend, Gabby, got hers. She thought they were about gone. So I better hang up so you can go to Sidney. Bye. I love you.

Mom: Wait, Otter. I’m not going to Sidney. But I’ll be thinking about whether this is something you’ll take care of.

Otter: Absolutely, Grandma. You can count on me.

Mom: Have a good day at school. Bye. I love you.

Otter: Bye.

Ring . . . .

Mom: Hello.

Otter: Grandma, you hung up before I could tell you something. I think there’s a way that you can get them on the computer. I think it takes money though. I don’t know for sure how it works but somehow you can put money in the computer. Do you want me to ask my mom?

Hahahahahaah! My mom sent me this by email because she thought it was so hilarious. I have to admit I was laughing myself. The last part is my favorite!

I know I'm overdue for a People in Review. It's coming soon!
