My new year's resolution: ME!

This year I resolve to put myself first more.  Not in a selfish way, of course.  As a mom, the needs of my children will ALWAYS come before my own.  However, like most moms (I assume), I often put my children's wants ahead of my needs- and that's just not good for anyone.  This year I also give myself permission to occasionally indulge in my wants, without feeling guilty about it. And that's that.

Happy New Year!!!!!!

A riddle? A joke? Just plain madness?

I can't even begin to imagine how boring my life would be if I didn't have Miss Isabell around.  She said something tonight, yet again, that left Jeremy and I completely perplexed:

How do monsters play soccer? They stick pinecones on their butts, and run around screaming!

The word you are searching for right now is, "what?"  Honestly, I just don't know.

That's what 25 years of marriage will do to ya!

A couple days ago I was talking to my mom, and asked her if she had any Christmas ideas for my dad.  She sighed, and lamented that he always asks for the same things: Levi's, thermals, and socks.  Uninspired by her list, I decided to go straight to the source and ask my dad directly if he had any ideas for Christmas.  He chipperly replied "Levi's, thermals, and socks would be great!" Hahahahaha!  I guess she nailed it!  Of course I can't tell yet what we got for him, but I'm sure he'll love it!

true to name

Last night Jeremy and I had a mini date night, and our first stop of the evening was here: Painless Steel Tattoo.  After having achieved an important goal recently, I decided to reward myself with something fun; I had my nose pierced!  Amazingly, the piercing really doesn't hurt.  It's a quick pinch and takes no longer than a standard immunization from your doctor.  While I doubt there are too many people reading this that are in the market for a body modification shop, if you are looking, I highly recommend this place!  They were extremely friendly, and most importantly, they were extremely clean!  I don't have a pic to show of my piercing yet because I need to buy a new connection cord for my camera, but hopefully I'll have one up sooner than later.

uh, I blame his dad

Tonight Isaac spilled some juice, and I instructed him to please grab a towel and wipe it up.  By the third time I asked him to clean it up, he tried to tell me that first he needed more juice.  Nope, sorry, you need to clean that up first.  Then he tried to convince me to get him more juice, and I told him I would be more than happy to, but first he needed to wipe up his spill.  He then said to me "please get me more juice first...... I'll give you a necklace for Christmas!"  What!?!?!?!!!  You are trying to BRIBE me? Yeah, fat chance buddy!

*the juice was cleaned up immediately after as I was not amused at his stall tactics and told him he had exactly 20 seconds to get a towel and clean it up.
