Please, I need out! I feel like I've been on an endless up and down this week and I'm running out of energy and patience, I need to be let out so I can breathe. UGH!
I'm so sorry I haven't been around, my poor family is probably wondering where I disappeared to, good news is I'm fine, we're all fine. Just overwhelmed and I don't know......
Jasmine is finally over her cold, she's back at school and being her usual perky, back talking, attitude throwing almost 9 year old. I swear it's like she's 9 going on 19!
I've had a really rough time with her this week, we've been butting heads to say the least. Is it always like this? Everyone says it's a phase but when does it stop? Cause I would like to know just for sure, I want to prepare myself, if there even is a way to do that. I'm just at my wits end, it's frustrating when you're a parent and you find yourself at a loss of what to do. Nothing like your child slamming doors while yelling "I hate you" to make you foresee the wonderful teenage years ahead. Help me mommy! LOL
Anyway, aside from mine and Jasmine's wonderful bonding moments *snicker*, things are ok. Curt is working weird hours this week so it tends to throw the whole schedule for a loop. Nicholas is doing good, he's got a bit of a cold just like I do, but we've been drinking lots of fluids and taking it easy, so we're keeping it at bay.
I haven't done much, I haven't read, I haven't blogged, I haven't watched tv. Quite frankly I don't know where the past few days have gone, I'm exhausted but can't give you details of why I got there. So if you see my energy laying around somewhere, go ahead and send it on back, I truly truly need it.
One thing I have been able to watch is the American Idol premieres and LOL No Words! I've just come to the conclusion that some people go on there for their 15 minutes of fame, knowing full well in advance that they can't sing or dance or apparently get dressed in matching clothes either. But yet I can't look away, it's like a bad train wreck, it's awful and you don't want to look but you can't pull away. Go figure!
I just got my Netflix movies today and I'm starting a series called "Christy" it's along the lines of Anne of Green Gables, so I'm really excited to start it, hopefully this weekend, if I get some time to myself.
Based on author Catherine Marshall's best-seller, this series centers on Christy Huddleston (Kellie Martin), an idealistic 19-year-old who leaves her upper-class city home for the rural community of Cutter Gap, Tenn., to teach impoverished children. Set in turn-of-the-century Appalachia, this heartwarming family drama also stars Tyne Daly and Randall Batinkoff.
**************************************I've got a few recipes to post on my food blog but I don't have the time right now, so I'll do it in the morning.
Speaking of recipes, thank you all for the great ones you have been sharing in my Slow Cooking Thursday. They are wonderful and I can't wait to try them...I also noticed quite a few Weight Watcher recipes being posted, I'm so pleased because my poor hips are begging for a reprieve from junk food. Problem is I'm too weak, I can't fight the food cravings LOL
Anyway, I just wanted to come in and touch bases with you all, I will try to drop by your blogs tomorrow.
