Things that bug me!!!!

Ok, so any of you mom's who nursed their babies totally know what I am talkin about! My friend sent this to me and I about died! SOOO TRUE! Thank heaven for push-up bras and plastic surgery! Ha ha!


Anyway, I was just posting a comment on my friend's blog, and I had to type in the stupid string of letters where it says "This blog does not allow anonymous comments." And I thought, "How dumb is this? Seriously, any idiot can type the string of letters in front of them, it wouldn't matter whether they knew you or were a chester! Does it really make these comments any more secure? NO!" It is just something to waste my time and bug me! SO I thought I would be a whiner and make a list of the things bugging me... In no particular order.... dum da da dum...


1. Saggy boobs! It's a sick joke that is being played on my body!


2. Dumb letter strings!


3. Having a husband who works graveyards. So he's gone at night, which is a bummer, but then he is basically gone the next day, too, to sleep. No fun for the "single" mom! But I guess we are lucky he has a job, right?


4. Girls whose stomachs are flat 2 weeks after they have a baby!


5. keeping my kids quiet during the day so my husband can sleep. It's hard! They are little and they have outbursts! Oh, yeah, and I can never vacuum! Someone is always sleeping when I have time to do it!


6. Laundry. There are like a millions steps to laundry! It NEVER ENDS! first, you gather it, then you sort it, then you put it in the washer, then the dryer, then you fold it, then you put it away... OK so that was only 6 steps, but I have ADHD, how am I supposed to do all that!


7. Trying to clean while my kids are around. It is a waste of my energy. As soon as I pick something up to put it away, it is the most interesting thing is the house and has to come back out.


8. Grocery shopping. Again with the million steps! First you have to figure out what you need, then you load the kids up and go, then you load the kids into the cart, then you go through the store to find everything you need (and if you shop at the same Walmart I do, they are ALWAYS out of the most important thing on your list), load the groceries on the checkout, then load them back into your cart, then load them into your car, then take them from the car to the house, then put them away! Wheww! That is a workout, and I have ADHD all over again!


9. When I am waiting to turn left and I slightly inch forward, and the person who is turning right coming toward me freaks out and stops, NOW WE BOTH CAN'T GO! you have the right of way, JUST GO!

10. I don't get to go to the movies very often, so I'll rent all the movies I never got to go to. Well, there will be a funny movie preview, it's PG-13, so i rent it, and the UNRATED VERSION shows up. I did not pay attention to this and this movie is supposed to be PG-13, and suddenly I am watching porn! What the heck!? And you can't even get the theater version! SO ANNOYING! A movie that would have totally been funny without all the nekedness, ruined!

11. When other people's kids' poop on me(It happened today!). My own kids poop is gross enough, but for some reason, someone else's kid is a million times worse!

12. When we are getting ready for church and my husband wanders in wondering why I am not ready! Hello! I have to get 3 people ready and pack a bag of things and treats to keep 2 of them occupied for 3 hours, all while he gets 1 person ready. Getting the kiddos ready is not what bugs me, it's the "why aren't you ready yet?" BECAUSE I DIDN'T GET ANY HELP!


13. So I told Zach he was getting a little bit of a gut. Rude of me, I know. But he starts working out more and cuts back a little on the MT DEW. Only has some when he works all night. In 2 weeks he's lost 10 lbs and looks great... I totally diet and go nuts working out, and my boobs shrivel up and die, but my butt is still the size of Texas (and that is being rude to TX)! Why is life so unfair?!

14. I always get behind the person at Walmart who is price-matching EVERYTHING in her cart! Seriously, warn me! I'll go wait in the other of the only 2 lines open.

Ok, so there are lots more things that bug me but I think I have been a whiner long enough... really, life is good, and I don't have anything real to complain about.

Marble Canyon




Last weekend I went to St George for Uncle Rusty's funeral with my parents and my kids (Zach had to work as always). The kids were a little sick of the car so we had to stop a few times to give them a break. We stopped and walked across the old bridge at Marble Canyon and the kids LOVED IT! Brody couldn't get enough of holding onto the side and the wind blowing in his face. He also loved looking 700 ft down at the little Colorado river, which made me a little naseated! There were people rafting down there and Ava was mad at them that they didn't bring her in their boat!

Last Week's Fairy Tale Ballet

videoLast Friday the girls danced to a Little Mermaid song. Ava is getting quite good, too. I am actually surprised at her ability to follow the choreography. To me, there is nothing cuter than a bunch of little girls dancing and loving it! Her new favorite word is arabesque. WHAT?! Ava is 2nd from the right in the white tu-tu.
