Let The Wind Blow

For a month or so now I have felt pretty in control of things. I have my chores done (including laundry) and crap is just falling into place. Then it started happening .... oldthat slide back into the rut. I noticed it this morning as I moped from the couch into the kitchen to make school lunches and realized i still hadn't got bologna.... *sigh* " just have hot lunch" I told them Hayden was super excited about that good news.... I wandered back to my bedroom and found my better half taking a shower (lucky guy ) I thought as I envied his peaceful ALONE self grooming time... we have a huge mirror on the wall close by so of coarse I saw myself and the truth stared me back in the face.. " I can tell I'm depressed , look at me, look at the shi# laying around, things are starting to get lax again." "it's not bad"husband answer so he wont have to hear me complain " eew, yes they are.. Look at my skin. I look like crap lately.. seriously wth.. (pulling at my cheek and leaning close to the mirror) I don't feel like doing anything cuz I don't feel that woo woo I'm awesome feeling." "yeah I don't feel like that much either."
I was frustrated as I pulled on my Awesome sweat pants and kick ass hot pink t shirt to go drive middle school carpool... they better not judge me ... I made it back safely and was set on making this day amount to something.. I text JT and told her I suck and we need to fix it, so off to her house I went.. Shes a good fixer..lol
While there I got a call from a friend and we all talked about Boy problems... and how the wind just gets taken out of Ur sail sometimes.. Seriously sometimes ya really do think maybe jumping in and swimming might be easier.. hahaha Well after a long day of back and forth friendship fluffing I realized something very, very important... as i lay next to my other half on our huge (I can't see you from way over here) bed. (after having a few touchy topics come up/ that didn't turn out so great) I realized... He must feel like he is paddling up stream all the time. He must look at our house and not see crap laying around but instead see huge payment he needs to come up with.Or watch me sulk out the door to drive carpool and see me drive away in his dreams of owning season tickets but have turned into a gas fund... he must lay back at night and just wish the wind would blow really hard so he could rest his arms for a bit...

I love my husband. He isn't perfect. He fights with me over really stupid crap . He does however, paddle our boat and makes sure we stay sailing......... lets all pray for wind.. lol

Amazing new Friend Awesome New project !i!i!

The kids left me..... :'(
Having someone with you during every part of your day (even in the bathroom) seems overwhelming... till their gone and your alone.......
I floundered <<<<< big word usage there around for a Day or two, I really didn't know what I should do with all my time. I had looked forward to this day for so long. Thinking I would have so much time for my stuff (write my book) and fun things. (as you can see it's 1:30am so,not true) really tho I was like a cat that had lost her Kittens.. I wandered around my house .......went and saw a friend .....made it home just in time for Drake to come home... NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED FOR THE DAY!
As you all know a house of Chaos is a house of Contention and a house of Contention is a house of Fighting!

Our house was in chaos. like the Amazing wife I knew I could be I figured out a plan to fix this BS......
lucky for me,my new friend Jennifer aka JenWow needed help with stuff too... so the next morning our MOMNESS was of the chain... we made a Homemakers Spreadsheet that is crazy organized ( I've read lots of books about it so we took a bit from each) lol
as we started putting things on paper we realized how awesome it would be to share this crap with other moms.. so Taa Daaa our Blog was born "My mom is better than your Mom" its been fun staying on task ...getting shiz done... life honestly has run smoother... things are clean in this house that haven't been in years... (that's sad I know) anyway, go check it out and follow us. It's gonna be fun!!! All the cool kids are doin it ;0)

Back to School

Summer went way to fast! The kids were all excited for school to start this year though so it must have been perfect timing.
We did have a very low key summer this year and didn't take any huge vacations..... but we had lots of fun together doing the simple things that made us happy.

Hayden started first grade this year. Davin aka SkinnyD is a big time 2nd grader. Beautiful Jayme is already in 5th grade. Time truly has sped up and only seems to get faster.
I didn't get a picture of Drake on his first day of 7th grade but he did look impressive... :O)
All in all the day went well. I am learning to be alone and how nice it is to get chores done and they stay clean (at least till everyone get back home) I hopefully will update this more often now and get back into writing. Someday I will finish a project I'm sure..lol... lots of love friends

14 down forever to go...

Time flys....... I am so lucky to have found a boy that liked me.. and turned into a man that loves me...

In our adventures so far I have learned so many things. I know this road can be bumpy. I know sometimes I want to run ahead or even grab Brian's hand and tell him to slow down . I know that I am lucky. I know that many times pot holes get the best of us. I know that this walk would be a ton less fun if Iwas alone. Nothing beats having a best friend to make this journey with.. (except having a hot sexy best friend ! which I do..) I am so glad Brian chose to be with me.. I am so glad that I have been able to watch him grow up. He really did walk into my life and had my heart the moment I saw him.I love you Brian Forever and ever..

Best Threat Ever

Once again it is MONDAY the day we all love to hate. Poor Monday.

I hope that everyone was up and at um bright and early this morning...lol Me and Bri went to the gym this morning at 5:3o. Brian honestly had to shove me up the stairs when we got home.(ya know when your legs feel like tight rubber bands) Anyway on my wobbly way to crash on the bed.... I saw it ... the NOTEBOOK "Ugh, I have to do that stupid thing." so with my chipper attitude I opened it to see what it was I had planned for Mondays... Remember I forget easy... Well, I had Bathrooms,My laundry,game closet.

Okay, let me tell you the best thing I have ever done. I used to dread cleaning the toilet in the kids bathroom.(Boys pee everywhere) but last month I had finally had it.

I took Drake and Davin in to the bathroom and sat them on the side of the tub. I explained to them how nasty it is to have to clean up their pee all the time!!! I had them both lean over and look at the gross sickening pucky pee puddles on the sides of the toilet. I had them lift the seat and look at all the nastiness that they cause.... then I busted out the paper towels and the Lysol spray. I told them "Every single time you pee in this toilet you will wipe the sides the front and under the seat. Then you will spray it down with Lysol,and say out loud "I wiped the seat" do you understand me?" they shook their heads yes. Then I had them play it out. (practice makes perfect right) after they had both had a simulation run I laid out the threats...."If you do not do this and there is pee all over again, YOU WILL SIT TO PEE."

My toilets have never been cleaner

So this week for my "closet" I am organizing the Pantry.

I have to tell ya me and Brian are doing that HCG diet aka Starvation.

Anyway, here I am organizing FOOD that I can't eat and in walks Hayden. She needed a "Snack". (fyi I hate making snacks on this diet) So she rummaged through the yummy piles of goodness that have now taken over the counter and found "Popcorn". That's good. I thought to myself That crap is so outta date it's gonna be yucky anyway............................................................................................................ 20 mins later............................................................................................... "your right Mom this is a yummy mix" ....................................................................................................................6hrs later (Brian is home now)

"Do you want the rest of my sandwich Dad?"asked Davin

"No, I cant eat that" Bri

"why did mommy eat Snacks with me today then?" Hayden

Let me just say.... it was only shredded wheat... ok, ok, it was chocolate frosted but I was seduced by it's yummyness and Hayden made me do it.

Point of the day: do a food less closet or.... make sure your kids aren't looking when you sneak a snack.

Sweet!!! Throw your hands up and say YEA!!!

We have 6 more weeks till we have to spring clean...

Seriously though this is good news for us.. If we start today.. then in 6 weeks, we will be so far ahead of the game we will look like pros. ( prolly should look pro anyway after doing this for 14 yrs)

So, hope that you did your room at least today, and tidy up the rest of the house right? Good job. Oh and you shoulda done the laundry that was meant for today also and put it away too.

If you have done those then you are so so awesome.. eat a cookie or something you earned it.. ;0)

Now pick a closet to fix this week. While that Groundhog sleeps a Lil more lets get those crammed full of crap things cleaned out okay.. Have fun and best of luck..

Okay... Big day today girls...

As we all know it's the worst day of the week... MONDAY!!

Our only goal today is to make it through the day... just kidding I wish . Really truly Monday doesn't have to be the worst day. It is all in how we break the week down. Monday, might end up being your favorite... ya whatever... Okay, today we need to do a 10 min tiding in every room that is seen by ppl. Meaning close your kids bedroom doors and we will tackle that another day. So all rooms that are accessed by ppl (other than your family) we need to do a quick tidy. Don't worry about the deep cleaning we don't have time for that today. After you have finished that, let's see I have 6 rooms x's 10 mins so about an hour get a note book and meet me at the kitchen table..

Okay in your note book we need to make a list of the rooms you just cleaned.

Kitchen , Living room, Guest bath, stairs/landing, basement. Now remember that card of the laundry days? Go find that (or actually write one now if you faked it and never did). Okay my card says Mon, M&D Tue, G Thur,B Fri Towels. Okay you /I need to decide what room to assign to which day.. try and think of your week (Remember Fridays are a bitch)

This is how you can make Monday your favorite day. If you hate cleaning the bathrooms. Then save them for Tuesday. No one is really gonna care if you put it off for one more day and if it makes you a funner person to come home to then, yee gads move it all ready.

So just to recap. 1: tidy.(every room) 2: make a list of rooms in need of cleaning 3:add your laundry day to list.

There you have your daily chore for the month of February.. we will get better at this as we go along but as for now if the only thing clean is the room listed on your card then you Did It! have fun and good luck.

The Weekend Comes

Ladies, I hope you all made it through Fridays task.

Note to self : Fridays sucks cuz of the carpool thing and the bball practices never plan that big of thing on Friday again.

Let me just say, "I know the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, but honestly I had to buy Albertsons cookies." This might come as a surprise to some of you, but I often forget things. Yes Me, and I forgot the Crazy Crappy day Fridays are and planned too many things. But, huge pat on the back here.... I managed to finish my assignment anyway.. people really don't care if they eat my cookies vs Al's cookies anyway right? so why overstress myself . Like I said earlier SIMPLIFY!!!

Anyway today we are MOMness our 1 main goal today is to be a nicer mom. Yell less let things like egg crusted spatulas slide and dirty George Foreman grills... life is short and those kids are only gonna remember if you were nice or mean not how clean the house was... best of luck and ttyt

Friday = Funday

Yep this is going to be FUN!!!

Now maybe you all are living in Mormontopia and keep up on your VT. I live in reality and I don't. So on this quest for best HEE one of the check marks is doing your VT. So yeah, you guessed it we are gonna bust this out..... now I have not made appointments nor am I gonna. So we are gonna "Simplify " After all wasn't it council once to "Simplify and life will be Simple"

So Today : make 4 batches of cookies.

I have 4 families. If you have different then change it. (Its almost the end of the month so we gotta get this done.) Don't make sugar cookies ,waaay to hard and pulse we need those for next month (heart shaped) lol... okay so mix up your cookies. While they are baking we are gonna do something for ourselves... it's super fun.... MOPPING!!!! I know right, like the funnest thing ever ever. The act of doing it sucks but the feel of the clean floor on your bare feet is so worth it..... OOOOO if only we were barefoot and pregnant then the stereotype would be so true....

Best of luck and go ahead and make a few cookies for your kids too... after all that's what a HEE would do right? And you can burn the calories if you walk to deliver them.. (I'm gonna drive I'm lazy) LOVE YA
btw: you have to wash the room laundry that you assigned to Friday...DON'T FORGET

Wonder MOM!!!

So, I 'm sure you already know this about yourself ,but I am on this self discovery mission this year to Be. Ya know be the ME I was meant to be. Hopefully that explains the picture..lol... she is who I want to be.. all hot and wonderful...lol... even in the wind her hair looks amazing..hahahaha

Anyway, along this road to becoming Wonder Mom i guess there are things I have to do. Things/Villains I must defeat and bring to submission. (if only I had those kick ass wrist bands and golden lasso of truth)

Today was a trying morning to say the least. Many times I thought about bagging this whole plan but then I realized DA DA DA DA "this is the work of the DARK ONE." lol.. So I can't let him win right? Again the DARK ONE throws back a "you will never get this house cleaned,,,, this is way way to hard for you"

Well, I quickly did the Wonder Woman spin outta that and into a plan.... today we will break down the HUGE overwhelming jobs and destroy them one bit at a time. This pile of mess in our laundry room floor has got to go. Every time I look at that man eating mountain it is self defeating... like Kryptonite. so It must go.....

Today... separate the pile into boys, girls, Mom and Dad rooms. then one other pile Towels.

Then on a card make a list. decide witch day you will do each room there should be 4 piles so only 4 days of laundry a week. I like doing towels on the weekend so the kids can fold them and they can learn how to run the washer. good luck super moms and may the force be with you....

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Well guess what.... i did it. it took me 15mins to fold the towels and put them away... I was so proud of myself that i took Bri in the bathroom and showed him the neat job I'd done. (like a 5yr old wanting praise) I am kinda a baby and need that pat on the back..lol

It did feel good knowing I had done something I said I would do.

While I was folding I was thinking..... Holy Crap I Work Tmrw!!!.... now, the last yrs model of Charity would just simply say "oh well ,I will just skip a day".... but remember this is the New Me,The BE SOMETHING Me and so I will post tonight for tmrws chore. (that's call planning ahead, apparently its really big in the organized world.)

Wednesday: Mirrors that's all.

Now the reasoning behind this is, they are super fast to do. Honestly, I want them done because when I come home the house will be a mess/kids and when I walk down the hall past the bathroom I want the satisfaction of seeing the mirror I cleaned. Also when I crash its on my bed and my side looks directly at the huge mirror and I know hand swipes (as cute as they are) will make me moody so.... yep just the mirrors tmrw.. good luck sistas..love ya all

It' has been far too long my friends.

You would think I'd been off doing great wonderful things while I was gone but.... nope. Same old crap just a different day. I planned (in my mind) that this year would be different/better. I would DO something. Find a purpose, contribute,not just Be... but be Something... It is a struggle for me to understand and except that I am Being Something by being a MOM. I watch all my friends going to school to be nurses and teachers and have their jobs that they go to everyday and think to myself... well I have my laundry (that i never ever do). Then I roll over on my bed and cry into my pillow (that prolly needs the case washed to tell the truth)...

So Today being the 26th day of my life changing year I am going to take this laundry basket by the handles and Do Something so I can Be Something. I invite all of you to join me in this crusade. Together we can BE the best HEE... Home Executives Ever !

We will have one goal a day to accomplish... that's it for the rest of January!!

Lets do it together. If you have a different goal then what I suggest feel free to comment and maybe someone else will take your advice.

Today's goal is to wash all the towels in the house. Fold them and put them away. Yes folding and putting away are part of the "washing "process. otherwise they will end up back on the floor and in the mountain of laundry. That's it, Simple. now go do it and Tmrw we will have a new goal..... ready set GO!
