{She Just Keeps Sending THOSE pictures!}

Dawn: If you guys would stop grounding me, then I wouldn't be in trouble all the time!

Me: If you would stop doing things you know are going to get you in trouble, you'd stop getting grounded.

This is what I'm dealing with today folks.

{He Wants Me to Stay Where?!}

Y'all...my husband finally talked me into taking a trip that has more to do with the outside than the inside. We shall see how this works out.

{I Caught Her with ANOTHER Phone}

I'm not sure what to do with Dawn anymore. She just keeps doing the same things over and over to get in trouble. She's not learning from any of the consequences we give her. She just insists that she's never going to change and we need to stop asking her to behave because she won't. She's gone further this time though...and I've decided that this is something someone with more authority needs to handle.

{ #weightwatchers Update | I've Lost HOW Much?!}

I know that I haven't updated on my weight loss a lot lately. Which usually means that I've fallen back into old habits. But I'm happy to tell you, that that is not the case this time!

{Jumping Back In!}

I can't believe it's been so long since I sat down to blog! I'm sorry about that! I've been trying to get into the swing of vlogging, and since I did, I've all but abandoned this site! But, I'm back!

{What My Kids Got for #Easter2018 }

Just like shopping for Christmas, shopping for Easter is no picnic. I struggle to find things for all three kids these days. Dawn being the easiest and Gaige being the hardest. Owen isn't awful, but it's getting way more expensive. But I thought if I'm struggling to find things for my kids (especially the boys) then there is probably someone out there also feeling my pain. So here's what I got my little heathens...in case you're sitting in the walmart parking lot trying to search for ideas.

{My House Almost Burned Down}

My Sunday started out like this...

Note the time in this picture. 5:44am. I was on my way to work, battling the left overs of the snow that had fallen all day the day before (apparently mother nature did not get the memo that it's spring).

{His First Set of Stitches!}

I'm not sure I'm cut out to be the mom of a kid who has no regard for his own safety lol. I vlogged this, but I thought I'd go ahead and blog it too. Since no one seems to have watched this vlog but me lol.

{We Are at a Loss | #parentingsucks }

I have attempted to write this post several times and I always discard it. I just don't know how to write what I need to without sounding like an awful parent.

But here I go again, so lets see how far we get this time.

{I've Lost How Much?! | #weightwatchers Update}

I'm just going to come right out and say it, joining weight watchers along with getting this job has been the kick in the pants I needed to really start focusing on myself. I have seen my self esteem sky rocket the last few months. Sure there's drama where I work (it's a room full of women for crying out loud), but I love working. I love knowing that at the end of two weeks I'm going to have money in my account that I did not have to ask for. It's not taking away from a bill (hell, I've helped to pay a couple). If I want to go shopping, I can. Because I have the money to do so. If I want to book a trip to Disney, I can because I can pay for it myself (over time...that business is expensive!). Not all of it is finances though, I find that I like having somewhere to be every day. I like knowing that I get up in the morning, take Owen to school and have to be at work (or sometimes I pick him up depending on my shift that day). Really I just love the whole thing!

And joining weight watchers again, definitely the right move at the right time for me. I know that I've said that before in the past, but this time it's true. I think I was a little depressed. I sat around the house all day just sitting in my own misery and boring life. I couldn't commit to weight watchers because I couldn't see past my own depression. With everything that has happened the last three years, I just stopped caring about myself. But I'm glad that I got back into it when I did.

Ivan would be proud of me for this.
