Senses

I was thinking today about our 5 senses. Do you ever smell something or hear something and it takes you back to an event that happened years ago? I will hear a song and remember listening to it in high school and remember exactly what I was doing and who I was with. I will smell something like a persons cologne and it will remind me of how someone smelled that I have seen in years. Sometimes I taste something and it will remind me of how something smells. Like band.aids. Don't ask me how but I swear I have a band.aid taste in my mouth all the time! If I had to choose one of the 5 senses (Sight, sound, taste, smell & touch) to loose I don't know what I would pick. Loosing any of them would be horrible and they are all linked together in a way. I can't imagine. I guess I'd pick taste. Maybe then I wouldn't eat so much crap! What would you pick?

Random Thoughts


  • Collin is pulling up and cruising around everything. He makes me nervous. Poor kid constantly has a bruise somewhere on his body from his multiple falls. I can't believe how much he changes in such a short amount of time. I love him more & more everyday. I have his picture as my back ground at work and I'm constantly just staring at it and thinking about how lucky I am to have such a great kid.

  • My pregnant niece won't accept my facebook request. Little does she know that since she is just ignoring it and not actually denying it that it notifies me of every little post she puts on there. She is so immature and constantly has things on there about wanting to kick so and so's ass and bitches and skanks.. blah blah blah. I'm at a loss for words. This poor baby doesn't have a chance. I was hoping it would change her for the better but it clearly is not. The baby daddy is not in the picture and according to her posts she hasn't even announced who it is yet. I'll be surprised if she actually knows who that father even is. ~Sigh~

  • We are thinking about building a house! I'm excited yet terrified. It will be in a small town outside of where I live now which will make my commute about 20min- right now I live like 10min from work and go home every day for lunch. It will be a major change not to live smack dab in the middle of town. DH never drives to work- his dad picks him up on the way so he uses little gas and will have to start driving into town and meeting some where. Our gas alone will go up about $40 a week. The land in this town is super cheap because they are trying to build it up. The school system is great and the community itself is awesome. My mom actually lives there w/her BF and the neighborhood we will build in is the same one as her. Not sure if I want to be that close but land where I live now is soooo expensive. We would never be able to afford it. I'm still not sure if we can afford to build BUT DH is a carpenter & his dad's a contractor so we will be doing all the labor ourselves and getting a contractors discount on everything. Cutting down the cost majorly. It will take about a year to get done since we will be working on it during the evenings and weekends but I'm okay with that. I'll let you guys know what transpires on this!

  • Swear I had more to say but now I'm just tired and have a headache so I guess I'll skedaddle. Hope you are all doing well! XOXO!

Daycare Rant

Collin goes to a big name daycare here in town. Wasn't my first pick- I really wanted in home but couldn't find anyone. Well luckily enough my first pick- a good friend of mines mother has an in home daycare has an opening in October. Oh glorious day. Well I'm not sure I can hold out until October. Here's the down low...

Collin's in the infant room at the daycare and the head ladies were a mother & a daughter. They were really sweet & I liked them. They seemed to really love Collin which made me feel at ease. Well I noticed a week or so ago that I hadn't seen them in there for awhile. At first I thought maybe they took a vacation or something. Well Friday I asked the 2 girls that I had seen in his room lately where they were. They tell me they don't work there anymore. Ummm okay. I told them that's nice I would have liked to have been notified of that. Grabbed Collin and left. The owner and the director weren't there that day which is probably a good thing because I was pretty pissed. Today I asked the lady (she's always there when I drop him off before they get busy it's just the one lady) that was there when I dropped off if who's room this was now and she said "I don't know, I don't know what's going on." Ummm okay. So at work I'm getting all kinds of fired up and couldn't wait to get him picked up so I could talk to someone who actually knew what the -pardon my French- fuck is going on. Of course no one is there. When I picked him up there was some other baby playing in his crib and he hadn't napped since 11a.m. I told them he needs to be taking naps later in the day because he's been falling asleep in his highchair during dinner. Damn it. I'm becoming one of those overbearing mothers. I don't care... I want to know who's taking care of my child everyday and I want to know why the ladies don't work there anymore. I know they can't give me details but I want to be assured that it has nothing to do w/the care of those babies. Sorry this is so all over the place but I'm a tad bit pissed off. Oh and Collin fell asleep in his car seat on the way home (we live like 5 min away) and it's 4:50. Great. Like he's gonna wanna sleep tonight!

I really don't want leftovers so...

A few weeks ago I was at my in laws for a little cookout. I made spinach dip and beer bread. Apparently my MIL made the same thing and she said she didn't want leftovers so I wasn't allowed to put mine out. They're coming over for dinner tonight. I have a notion to make the same thing as her and tell her we won't be eating hers because I don't want to have leftovers. Hump. Who says that?

Trigs- not me

~Poss Trigs~

I just got off the phone w/my mom and my niece is pregnant. She's 16. She's a HS drop out. Has no job. No car. Nothing. I say she's my niece but she's actually my brothers ex's daughter. They started dating when she was just a year old so she's basically been my niece her whole life. I knew from the time she was just a little girl that she was going to be trouble. I knew this was coming. She has a different boyfriend all the time. Apparently she does know who the father is and he is her current boyfriend. She's due Dec 19th. I'm speechless. Not surprised but still speechless.. why couldn't it have been one of you? Why a 16 year old girl with absolutely nothing to offer this child. Well she can offer love I guess so I shouldn't say nothing. The child will be loved I have no doubts about that. Ugh I just don't know what else to say.

Another wammy- my best friend is having a hard time TTC. She has large fibroid tumor which is pushing out her uterus. They said if they tried to remove it they would have to remove her uterus with it because it is so large. She isn't ovulating and they think she has endo. Though she hasn't had a LAP yet to confirm. They said it's possible she could get pregnant but it will probably a long battle and if she does she will be extremely high risk. My heart breaks for her.

Day's like this just suck. Plain and simple.

Coupons & comments for my girls

~Still having trouble w/blogger but don't want you ladies to think I've forgotten you!
-Tanya- Praying for you! We are here for you always. Lots of (((HUGS)))
- Sarah- Congrats on the boy! So glad everything is looking good & can't wait to see the u/s pics!
-Robin- ((((HUGS))) I'm so very sorry. I can't imagine what you are going through. We are here to lend a shoulder.
I'm sure I'm missing others that I've wanted to comment on. Hopefully blogger will get its crap together SOON!

On to my obsession w/coupons. Coupons. I love em! I'm trying/wanting to become an Extreme Couponer! I don't have the space for a gigantic stock pile but just saving money on my groceries in general would be fabulous! Money's tight and our grocery bill is one of our biggest expenses. Thus I'd like to scale it down a bit. I've been getting my coups in the paper, coupon.com and couponmom.com. Any other sites that you ladies go to? I used to have a blog that I followed that had different stores and deal at each of them but I can't find it. I'd love to join a coupon club of sorts but don't even know how to go about doing it. I'm in no way shape or form anywhere near as good as the girls on Extreme Couponing BUT I'm trying. We don't have crap for grocery stores around here and no one doubles or matches your coupons so getting something for FREE is nearly impossible. I do however think I'm getting a deal for my trip this weekend... at Save-A-Lot. I'm getting....
3 boxes of Hamburger Helper- $1 each- .75 coupon= 2.25
4 packages of Knorr rice- $1 each- (2) .50 off 2 packages coupon's= 3.00
1 Fisher Boy Fish sticks- $1 (no coupon just like these & they're cheap)= 1.00
6 cans of Pringles- $1 each- (2) $1 off 3 cans= 4.00
Total= $10.25

I didn't think that was too bad considering all the stuff I'm getting. PLUS I joined their Smart Shopper club and got a coupon for $5.00 off my purchase of $25 or more. Woot!

~Collin update~
He's crawling. Everywhere. Pulling up. On everything. My house is soooo not baby proof and I'm reminded of this every time I tell him "no" or pry something from his tiny fingers. He's gotten into the dog food. Twice. I've got my work cut out for me. He's a mover!
