Even waffle eating superman/Buzz light year gets tired


Taken last night

He is still half sick. Only with a sore throat but he is such a trooper no one would ever suspect a thing. I could have sworn he would be up all night, he was so worked up a short while ago. But I made my cup of tea, told him I would be back in few minutes and I went out back to enjoy the almost full moon. It was beautiful by the way. This was my relax time.

When I came back in I found my superhero fast asleep.

He has been a little sick for a little over a week. Earlier this week it was a fever no cough or runny nose, then the past 2 days it's a sore throat. I wonder what it is.


Taken tonight

And in case someone...ahem.... was wondering why pillows and blankets were on the sofa, hehehe...I've been camping out there for the past couple of days with him. He wants to sleep with mommy when he isn't 100%. I love these moments, too bad it's when he's not well.

I've been with a headache for days now and when I laid down last night I told him so. He rubbed my arm, made nice on my head and gave me a hug. Then he kissed me and said "night night, now mama feels all better". Times like these lets me know that I am doing something right. I love my kids.

No it's not the playroom AGAIN. It's 1 of my desk drawers. I'm starting off small.




Didn't think all that mess could fit in there



I wonder how long it will stay like this?

I am so proud of me


I love perfume but I usually don't buy them for myself. That's the husband's job since I am Ms. Cheapo and these things aren't really cheap. I ran into Macy's and promised myself that I was not leaving this place empty handed. I won't even tell you how long I spent in there but boy am I glad I got it. This thing smells good and I got the body wash, cream, 1.7 oz bottle and a tiny one for my purse diaper bag.

So now mommy can smell really nice when she is cleaning the house and when she goes to the park for playdates. Hmmm...

I just love my husband to bits!

I was out of my happy juice and with his tired self, after slaving away in the garage for the greater protion of the evening, he hopped in his truck, went to the store and bought me a full bottle......hehehhe. My kind of man.

Hey, I've had a rough day.

The cleaning guy came and although he and his awesome machinery worked miracles upstairs, our living room rug stinks. I am thinking it has a lot to do with the kind of material. The upstairs is wool berber
as I am told(I doubt it). The other stains and gatorade foot-prints came out like magic and so did the smell in the boy's room. However the wool-like rug(it feels and looks like it) and I say wool-like because I am too lazy to go lift the edge and look at the tag, still smells like a cat marked it!

My mom says wool stinks if it is not dried properly so maybe that's it. Surprisingly upstairs is dry, so fast! Come to think of it I remember the tag specifically said "Professional DRY Clean" Must be a reason.

The cleaner guy is my husband's friend and he didn't charge us for the rugs, we had 3. He recommended another company, who actually picks the rug up, completely submerge them in water for cleaning and brings it back dry. Right now it is damp in the garage, draped over the bed of Chris' truck. And let's just say we have to keep the garage door closed. YUCK!

More expense because if this last resort doesn't work, the rug must be thrown away. We're hoping when it finally dries the smell will go away....POOF...like magic

Here we are another Tuesday. The same mess in the toy room AGAIN. I wonder if some of you ever thought that I keep using the same nasty, messy photos over and over again. Last night before big Chris went to bed, I told him to take Christopher to bed with him so that I could get some cleaning done and you'll see why.





That work bench will mysteriously disappear very, very soon!


I really don't know why I even bother


I am sure you see the stain on the carpet. The cleaners are coming tomorrow to "fix" it!

You all are not going to believe this..

Pictures from Mother's Day

This is rare ~ a photo with the husband
Someone needs a haircut

You know how I am always going on about these crazy drivers well I almost forgot to share this with you. A few weeks ago I was at a stop light. I had noticed the lady driver next to me doing something in the car.



My van is bit higher off the ground than her car so I could see what was going on. Do you know, she had a full plate of food, with knife and fork? The light changed, we pulled off and she moves also. She placed the plate in her lap and proceeded to use her fork to eat. What the hell is going on with these people? She must have been starving!


My 16 yr old nephew, he's at 6' 2" and still have 5 more yrs of growing. I'm amazed

A few days later I am at a stop light again, ofcourse. And I hear horns honking away. It jumped me and Christopher was asking what that was. I look over to the turning lane to see yet another lady squeezing pimples on her face. I guess she was so focussed that she didn't even hear the blazing set of horns the first time around. You should have seen the back-up she caused.

The husband and his tiny mommy.....and this is his big sister

(Hey I see that blogger now automatically saves our blogs once a minute. I guess it's gearing us up for more publishing issues...hehehe, this way atleast we won't loose the post)

What a horrible way to start of the day!

This is what I woke up to this morning. Why, people, why?


What in high-heavens was this boy thinking?

We have been trying to figure out what to do about my son's change of schedule here. We normally sleep in late but for a short while now it's 8 am and sometimes earlier. Last night, or I should say this morning before I went to bed, I set my alarm for 8 am thinking I would be safe. The problem is he wakes up before I do and helps himself to whatever he pleases resulting in such messes as these. Now this Gatorade was on the top shelf in the kitchen cabinet. I think he may have used the trash can to get on the counter.



My jaw dropped when I saw this. Notice the different rug. Well our nice green one is rolled up in the garage awaiting the professional cleaners next week Tuesday. They will also do all the rugs and the entire carpeting upstairs. You won't believe this but Mr. Potty trained Christopher peed on our nice green rug and now it stinks like hell. The husband wanted to just throw it away, his solution to many things, but I cannot allow it. It costed too much money.

Now I suspect he ate a little too much of the Gatorade powder because he was on a serious sugar rush for a few minutes then he crashed really hard. He's asleep now. Alyssa was a total witch this morning and she was put in her bed also.



Atleast he tried to clean it right? There were tiny footprints leading all over the place. Water thrown on the floor so that he could mop it up, I guess! But it's Gatorade and Gatorade is sticky. I have mopped the floor twice so far and my feet are still sticking to the floor.

His punishment, I called in to Gym class and told them we couldn't make it and today we have an afternoon playdate that I am not sure he will attend. I don't want to start locking his door because he needs to have access to the bathroom but what am I going to do? He keeps beating me to it every morning and is getting up earlier and earlier.

For sure I thought it would be the boy's toy area AGAIN! And don't get me wrong it's a filthy mess AGAIN. But the kitchen needs my attention now. I wanted to have a cup of tea but it was just too messy even for me too boil some water.




Surprisingly it didn't take me that long. You know why? I threw everything out!



Until next week! Well let's get real here. It's...until tomorrow. Same mess, same place....

8 things about me

I've been tagged by Carolyn ~ the Scrapping Servant. I have to share 8 random facts/habits about myself. So here goes...

  1. I used to be left-handed but my teachers in Primary School, back home, forced me to change.
  2. I love smelling my husband's arm-pits, doesn't matter what time of the day
  3. I talk to myself a little bit too much
  4. My husband and I still play footsies
  5. I can count the number of times on both hands of course that my husband has actually called me by my first name. The kids think my name is sweetie
  6. I start many things that I cannot finish
  7. I love complaining to companies about crappy service
  8. I have a tea-cup addiction and now we have way too many
I am supposed to tag 8 people but I am way too shy to do that, plus I don't think I have that many readers so I'm cheating. Anybody who reads this, you've been tagged by me...haha

Here are the rules which I broke (did I mention I have a difficult time following rules and taking instructions?) :

1. When you are tagged you must write a blog post sharing 8 random facts/habits about yourself.
2. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and post their names with links.
3. Don’t forget to leave them a comment to tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog for instructions.

Wordless Wednesday ~ Love


Tackle It Tuesday ~ Updated: I'm finished

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I just took the pictures quickly before the kids went down for their naps, so I'll be attempting to fix-up this mess a little later this evening.


Look at the dirty rug/Messy table and the floor of his closet. The mesh laundry bag is below the dirty clothes

Atleast the dirty laundry is in it's correct place

Destroyed books, their pages on the floor and just a messy bookshelf


I wonder how long it will stay like this, a couple minutes maybe?

I need a better way to organize the toys in this room. Actually I think I will take some of them away


This took me a very long time, I only threw a few broken things away
Full view of his filthy little toy & play cubbyhole


Full view or most of it anyway
