Show me the light at the end of the tunnel....

I'm sooooooooo tired. I honestly don't remember the last time I slept in on a weekend. It's 6:30am this morning and I hear "mommy time to get up"....GRRRR, go away!
So I'm laying there slipping in and out of sleep, I mean, every minute counts right? But I couldn't keep the kids in bed for longer than 15 minutes. 6:45am and I'm up on a saturday morning....YIPPEE!!!

This is going to be a looooong day. I'm sitting here with my coffee which is actually nice and warm, I made sure that I gave the kids everything they needed and told them not to interrupt me for 10 minutes so that I could have my coffee. They're playing with hula hoops, and I have to say that they don't use them the right way, otherwise I wouldn't have been whacked on the head with one.

So this morning, I'm going through my usual email, blog, etc routine, and I come across this funny quiz. How would you be described in a dictionary? You enter your name and it gives you the definition. Now here is what mine said, and don't laugh.......LOL

Sandra --


A person with a taste for acorns

'How will you be defined in the dictionary?' at

A TASTE FOR ACORNS?!?!?!?! Figures, I couldn't have something cool, it had to be acorns. LOL

I went ahead and put in Curt's name and the kids too and this is what I got LOL

Curtis: Curtis --[noun]:A master of storytelling
Jasmine: Jasmine --[noun]: A person who likes to steal cans of tuna
Nicholas: Nicholas --[adjective]: Tastes like fried chicken

Hmmmmmm well now, I have a kid who steals cans of tuna and one who apparently tastes like fried chicken. Life couldn't be better!!! LOL
Go ahead, give it a try and see how you would be defined in a dictionary. If anything it will start your weekend off with a smile.

I think I'm going to do a good cleaning of this house today. I don't really want to or feel like it, but I figure if I do then it will be easier to keep it clean during the week. The day is not starting out very good, both kids seem to be in a bad mood and there's a lot of yelling, so I need to switch gears and get them involved in something entertaining, it's the only way I can get them to stop fighting.

So here's my to do list for today:

  • Do all the laundry, fold and put away
  • Vacuum and dust living room
  • Clean backyard
  • Make bread using the Breadmaker (yeah I'm not that Martha Stewartish to do without it)
  • Clean out the truck and car, you'd be amazed at the things you find in there
  • Return the books and movies to the library (Alone this time, thank God)
So that's pretty much it for now. Again, I advise you to get out there and enjoy the warmer temperatures, don't get stuck at home doing nothing, take the kids to the park, take the dogs for a walk or just go for a drive somewhere.

I end this blog with a thought for this morning:

After reading some of my other favorite blogs, some of them from military wives and widows and even soldiers in Iraq, I realize how lucky I am to have a wonderful family and to have them all close by. Please Please, love your husband, love your kids, and don't dwell on the small things. My heart goes out to all the military families who are at this moment going through a hard time, whether the spouse is temporarily deployed or over in Iraq, and especially to the military widows who I hold dear in my heart. A HUGE thank you to them all for the daily sacrifices made.
God Bless!!!
