What a week!

It has been a long week for us here... and because it's been so crazy busy we are now sick. It started with Ryker who started his cold on Thursday and Annalise started hers yesterday and I started it last night. I am miserable, Anna is miserable... she is so miserable I asked her if she wanted to go back to bed and she grabbed her blankie and binkie and walked to our room. I hope that Mike and Jared do not get sick, but we live in a small house and I'm guessing they'll be sick within the next couple of days!

Theron (my new nephew) made it home yesterday. I want to go visit them but I do not want to get them sick, so I'm gonna wait a few days. I'm gonna make them a breakfast casserole (thanks for the recipe Raquel) and bring it over to them. Boy that baby is a cutie, I seriously love being an aunt.

Cross all your fingers and toes... Mike and I will be heading up north tomorrow (Sunday), to hopefully buy a new(er) car. I really hope it works out, so say a small prayer and cross your fingers. I'll post pics of the car if/when we get it! Alright, I'm gonna try to pick up the rest of my house and then try to set the tree up. We will not decorate today since Mike will be working late, but we'll figure out a time to do it soon.

Can you get a hangover from to much noise? Oh my gosh, Sunday was a day I spent recovering from the pain in my head... I think I am to old for this stuff!

Can you imagine a bunch of women who were young back in the day, now in or close to their 30's screaming like they were 10 again? That's what the concert was like. But I must admit that it was an AMAZING concert. The NKOTB still "Got the right stuff baby!" Hahahaaa! They put on one hell of a concert. It was a great time for me to be away and just have some fun. Mandy and I went to dinner had a grown up drink, talked and laughed... The waitress even thought we were 19. Come to find out we are 28, mom's and wives! We headed to the concert and had a good time.

Mike survived, Jared survived and Annalise survived for the most part. We headed out from the concert around 11:20pm and I sent Mike a text that we were on our way... Anna had just woken up from going to bed around 9 (this is very norm for her to wake up every 2 hours) and was crying and saying "momma!"... well we'd be home soon so I wasn't worried. But they all survived and for that I'll be doing this more often.

I can say that I still love the New Kids and will go see them again if they go back on tour... they totally thrive off the crowds and you really should have seen them, they were amazing! Thanks Mandy for hanging with me, I had a BLAST!!!

What's that stand for? New Kids on the Block... duh!!! Anyway today is the day I go back in time 20 years ago... When I wore LA Gear and bright color cloths. I am going to see them in concert today. I've been having some issues with it (my husband keeps making fun of me!), but in all reality I was IN LOVE with them back in the day. What's wrong with going back in time and catching up with a long lost love! HAHAHAHAAA!!!

Anyway my sis Mandy and I are having a girls day. We are leaving at 4 going out to dinner and heading to the concert. This may be the longest I've been away from Annalise. Mike will be watching her and I pray with all my might that he doesn't have issues. See I'm still nursing and she likes to nurse to sleep, so this will be interesting. Mike did ask 1 thing of me though, he asked me to NOT text, call or check up on him. He said not to worry and get out and have a good time, I deserve it. Isn't that sweet? Well it is and it's so true, so I'm truly going to enjoy myself and let him take care of the kiddo's... I trust him!!!

So regardless of how "old" the NKOTB are, or how "old" I am I'm gonna have a great time!!! In other news, I've finally got my web cam hooked up so I can communicate with family up north. I tried it out last night with my mom and it's pretty neat. Anna loves it because she can see herself, so cute! Well gotta do some chores before I take a break from this thing called mommyhood!

So I've been struggling with a headache/migraine for the past 3 or 4 days... Migraines are a pretty consistent factor in my life, ever since I gave birth to Jared... but usually only lasting 1 day. I maybe have 1 major (go to bed and pray for it to go away) maybe every 2 months or so... they can be triggered by; my period, not eating enough in the morn, not having enough caffeine or having to much... stress. Ibuprofen is my saving grace, but if I don't catch it in enough time u can forget about it. So anyway this post was not about my migraines, just to let you know what has been going on. Anyway, I don't know what's going on but I've been in a funk and I'm just soooo tired. I'm sure (I think I've already said this) I'm just adjusting to this weather.

I am gonna post on this in the next couple days, I'll keep you all on the edge of your seats... The struggles and joys of being a stay at home mom, and are we ever really appreciated! I've been going through photo's cleaning up my desktop and then next I'll be putting up some new photo's over the last couple months.

Blah Blah Blah!

So I'm sorta been in a blah blog mode. I've sorta felt at a loss for words since a stupid comment was left on one of my posts. I'm not sure why and actually I've moved past it, but I've sorta felt guarded about what I want to say on here... I don't want to be like that, I love sharing my thoughts and feelings and well I love sharing about my family. Besides that to, I've just been feeling tired and warn out. My headaches/migraines have been coming a lot more recently and I just feel blah. I hope it's (my body) just trying to adjust to fall/winter coming and the daylight savings stuff. Hopefully I'll be getting back into my groove thang!

I do want to say that I really like living here in Lacey. I've found myself to be busy busy busy all the time. During the week I'm spinning out of control with my kids and my nephew. Taking Jared to school; keeping the kids on a schedule; picking Jared up... Then on the weekend we usually spend some time with Mandy and Tiana just hanging out. It seems like we either have someones birthday or shower... something... but I love it. I like being busy, ask Mike. He doesn't like it, he'd rather sit on his fat a** (LOVE) and sleep all day long. Me for some reason just feel like I'm always on the go. When we are at home I am restless and always picking up after the kids and doing laundry and just well SPINNING. Lacey also seems to be in the middle of everything around here. We are not far from much and we are looking into doing a lot more outdoor things, which I love. Last weekend we went to Tumwater Falls w/ the kids. That was nice just to walk around and take nature in.

So it's the weekend and I'm glad, hopefully I'll get to sleep in a little (PLEASE ANNA). Tomorrow (Saturday) we are gonna head over to the Christmas Bazaar down the road where my mother in-law is selling her candies. Sunday Mike has off so we'll be watching the Seahawk game and then doing something fun as a family! (so much for being speechless, it sorta just spilled out!)

A visit, a tantrum and insanity!

So again not a whole lot going on. Mike has had the last 2 days off, which has been nice. We've just been hanging out. Jared has started Cub Scouts and Annalise is being a brat. She is throwing tantrums, she stomps her feet when she is mad. I try to put her in her car seat and she will throw her belly out and scream. She cries for no reason at all except to cry. She got her butt smacked the other day because she bit Jared because again she was mad. She sticks absolutely everything in her mouth so I've had to smack her hand 2 times so she will not stick CORDS in her mouth. She is sooooooo freaking emotional and drives me nuts... BUT I LOVE HER anyway!

Mr. Aaron Sanchez is down here today (just got here in fact) visiting us from up north. And just as he walked in the door he walked back out with Mike. Do you have any idea where he and Mike went? Cabela's!!! Mike can't stay away from that place, it's funny.

Well the kiddo's are sleeping and I'm freezing, so I'm gonna get a blanket and relax!

Hello all... well I do not have ANY pics from Halloween. I'm gonna have to steal some from the sis in law... we did have a good time though. Annalise did good for the couple houses she walked to. The rest of the time we just watched the boys (Jared and Ryker) do all the "trick or treating"...

Other than that not a whole lot going on. Jared had 2 days of from school making for a 4 day weekend... that's always hard because he begins to wear on my nerves about 2 days in :)... And in Jared news I'm pretty sure he has 5th disease... his rash broke out yesterday.

Alright I'm off to eat my lunch (I've been up since 6:30am), and work on getting caught up on the stupid laundry. Have I mentioned that I DO NOT like daylight savings? Oh in other news, Election day is on Tuesday, I cannot wait to see who will be elected for President... who do you think it'll be?
