He said I breastfeed like a hunchback…

Joking insults are flying around the house these days which means, we must me getting back to normal and catching up on sleep or something. The joking insults are a pretty good sign, means we still like each other enough to make an effort and that our humor is returning. Things like "douchebag-deluxe" and "breastfeeding like a hunchback" are the most recent ones...

Brain Spew: Bullet Point Thursday. Bun in the oven edition.

I could be long winded and thorough about all these things but that is just a tad boring and seriously nobody cares that much right? So here is my brain spew for you in the form of an infamous bullet point post. Enjoy! My tap water gives me diarrhea. Yep I know that is TMI huh? It is serious though. About every 2 weeks it happens and oddly enough it is coinciding with my water intake. Any time I drink more than my 2 jugs of water it just runs right through me. Someone remarked "wouldn't you just pee the water out?" and I thought to myself, "why yes I should". Problem is that is not what is happening. Then my mom reminded me that her water has some unusual levels of...

Way to go Scott MacIntyre of Scottsdale, AZ!!

Back in the day (we are talking like 2001-2003) I sang in a choir and was working towards my music education degree. You see singing has always been a passion of mine, shoot all the performing arts are! Anyway I had the pleasure of meeting and performing with a ton of people who have gone on to do great things with their musical talent. At one of the many choir concerts the MacIntyre family, 4 of the many musical lovers that came through my life, had the opportunity to perform one of their pieces in a concert. Here is a video of the song I remember them doing at a concert: They were all amazingly talented musicians and were all so genuine and kind to everyone. They took care of each other and...

Trying to get good at the new Wii is hard!

For those of us old school video game children getting used to the newest and greatest video game systems is hard stuff. On Christmas night after N got off work we sat down and started playing the new Wii for the first time. Actually, N got to play Wii at a holiday party earlier this month so he had some more experience than me. The bowling game was easy to pick up on for me but the pool game was hard stuff! Literally it took me 20 minutes to figure out how to hit the cue ball! N was laughing his butt off the whole time and I was getting super frustrated. The Wii is tons of fun! We haven't busted out the Wii Fit yet, we'll have tons to keep us...

Have a laugh this weekend okay?

I know I have been in need of a good laugh these days, so is Sarcastic Mom, Tapthatmom, Becky and many other bloggers out there. This time of year is tough for many and with added economic stress and other crapola things just can get plain ole sucky sometimes. A good laugh really does help though! So watch this video from beginning to end and have a chuckle on me okay? *hugs* Don't forget to stumble and digg posts you enjoy so others can enjoy them also!...

Turkey day is tomorrow, do I have the flu?

I am feeling a bit off today, like I might be getting sick or something. I am trying hard to kick it by eating well, drinking tons of water and resting. Hopefully I am not getting the flu or something. N is thinking the fact that I ate subway might have something to do with it. I guess eating lunch meat while pregnant is not recommended because of nitrates and listeria...

Yay Amigo!

Remember when I mentioned that our only car (the poor amigo) was getting a new soft top? Well, the soft top arrived yesterday and N got it installed today. Hurray for keeping the cold air out of the moving vehicle! This is a huge deal for us considering it has been about 4 years since we started talking about getting a new top for the thing. It is amazing what a difference it makes to. The car is actually not uncomfortable to ride in anymore. Before the wind would whistle through the car blowing dust, leaves and other debris in to your face. Also, people riding in the back were not protected from the rain or snow. They day we dropped my mom and brother off at the airport after the road...

House floods and hair dye…

I am one of those 20somethings who already has gray hairs, yep it is true! Actually it is a chunk of gray hairs, kind of a streak on my right side right near my hair line. I usually dye my hair with the intent of covering the gray I have tons of hair so I usually need 2 boxes of dye. Unfortunately, dye is expensive and these days we are scrounging every penny we have for our $10,000 move. Lately this has prevented me from enjoying the luxury that is coloring my hair...

Finding rental houses (not apartments) online…

I have never understood why finding rental homes online is so much more difficult than finding apartments. When we moved out to Flagstaff, AZ we rented several apartments over the course of 2 years. Apartment complexes just don't make things easy for multiple pet owners and families with kids seldom want to live in an apartment setting. Sometimes renting an actual house is better but finding them is never easy! I thought it would be helpful for others if I complied my rental home resources. This is not a sponsored post but I have had the opportunity to to business with several companies on the list and will link you to the posts made when I lived in homes under the particular company's management. Hopefully this list is helpful to some...

Apparentally my hormones got the best of me today!

While N and I were grocery shopping and running various errands I was behaving badly and didnt even know it! We picked a bad day to go grocery shopping, everyone else was out doing the same thing! This means craziness in the isles. Shoppers are chowing down at sample tables like they are a feeding trough, others are racing around the stores like wild chickens with their heads cut off. While we were in Bashas looking for refried beans some lady comes flying around the corner, without even giving us a chance to move she yells "excuse me" which startles me. I guess I gave her funny look and acted rather annoyed with her outburst. While we are at the checkout the cashier asks me how many bags we have, we bring...

Baby chicks, a video!

For mothers day weekend I visited my mom and got to enjoy all the baby chickens she had hatched. I also got to see one hatching! My mom got a nifty little video camera for her birthday/ mothers day and since then I have been twisting her arm about starting a blog. Today she finally did it and we even got a video of hers uploaded and ready for sharing! Here is the video: I also made a little demonstration video on how to add a video to your wordpress blog. If you are looking for info on adding a link to a video or embedding a video to your wordpress blog here is the link to my instructional video I made to help my mom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX2_Vt6ZU1o And I found this funny but...

Mothers day weekend – part 2, snakes, oh my!

Several years back we got my mom these two chicks. They were a mothers day/ birthday gift (her birthday is very close to mothers day) and she was so surprised. Turns out we got her silkies (a specific breed of chicken), a male and female. Years later she has a whole bunch of chickens. Her silkies mated and reproduced, some died, new chickens were introduced, the mated and reproduced. She has quite the flock going. Problem is she has too many roosters. A rooster need to have about 10 hens to himself and multiple roosters in a small space with limited hens means fighting over mates or overly abusing the few mating hens. My mom is facing the "too many roosters" issue right now. She lives in a community called New River...

It is only 6am, let me sleep!

My cats are so annoying sometimes, Mr. guy especially! He is a control freak and will have litle temper tantrums if life does not follow the routine HE is used to. N did not come home last night, that is a routine disruption. N usually gets up at about 6 or 7 am everyday and I will get up around 8 am. this morning Mr. guy proceeded to paw at me, pull the covers off of me and he even tried to weasel his way under the covers so he could scratch me. It was 6am, nobody was awake so he took it upon himself to try every trick in the book to wake me. Pawing at the blinds to make noise, touching me with his wet/ cold nose, jumping on my...

We got 4th place! Watch the video..

Well, we are back from our performance yesterday. It was a long bus ride and a long day but I think it was well worth it. Here is the performance video from the Casa Grande Show yesterday.
