{I Have The Weirdest Dreams}

So lately I've been having the strangest dreams ever. I usually don't remember a lot of them when I wake up but last nights was just too weird and my brain was like No she needs to remember this shit lol. But what's annoying is right now as I'm writing this, I can only remember the part about having a baby!

{Spent All Day in the Hospital}

About five years ago I was woken up in the middle of the night to D crawling across the bedroom door saying babe between gasps for air. I was so scared, I had no idea what to do. I thought maybe I could get him to the hospital on my own but then I realized I'd never even get him to my car. I called his dad who lives just about ten minutes from us in the same town, when he didn't pick up, I called his best friend. Someone I knew would pick up. I barely got D can't breathe and he needs to go to the hospital out of my mouth before he was out the door and pulling up in front of our house. A few hours later, they came home with a scrip for an inhaler (D does have asthma) and the information that it was his gallbladder acting up. This was the beginning.

{"I'm Not a Baby Anymore!"}

The words no mother is prepared to hear come out of her youngest child's mouth. Not just your youngest but your last. Owen is my last baby. This is the last time I'll have someone in elementary school. Not only that but this is his last year in the little little kid school. Next year he is switching to the fourth through sixth grade school. I can not stress how not ready I am for this.

{Walking Into 2017}

Oh lordy. It's been a minute since I updated about my weight loss. Probably because since I got down to 216, I haven't really gone too far past it and stayed. I'd like to say I don't know why that is, but I do.

{He's Grieving Too}

Sometimes I think I forget that as much as I am grieving the loss of my grandpa, Gaige is grieving too. I think for the longest time I've been so deep in my own grief and so focused on making it through as best I can, that I've forgotten that there is a kid here in this house that was just as close to my grandpa as me and my three siblings were.

Gaige grew up with my grandpa. I often told people that he was never even meant to be mine. That sure I was chosen to be his mom, but my grandpa was who he was really supposed to be with. And for almost thirteen years, these two were inseparable. Where my grandpa went, Gaige went.

{He Bought WHAT?!}

Oh lordy you guys. I don't think my mom brain can handle what I just had to deal with today. I just can't even process how I'm supposed to handle this. Well, I guess I won't handle, I'll let his dad handle it. Cause lord knows no one wants to talk about this with their mother. Especially not when you're a fourteen year old boy.

{Homeschooling Again?}

I never thought I would doing this again, or even talking about it. When I signed Gaige back up for public school, I figured he would graduate with the kids he was with in that school and everything would be golden. I was wrong. So wrong.

This year has been nothing but troubles for my oldest son. He hates school. He doesn't like going. He doesn't like the teachers or the kids. He is defiant beyond words at school and it's spilling over into home too. Which of course he gets in trouble for because I don't put up with that shit. I have had meetings with his teachers and they all say the same things, that he just refuses to do most of the work.

{50 Questions You've Never Been Asked}

I haven't done one of these in a while. So I thought I would! Since I'm having kind of a writers block tonight. I got this one from Mama Kat. Feel free to post them on your blog and send me the link!

1. What’s your favorite candle scent? I don't do candles because my cats would never leave them alone. But I have the B&BW wall flowers. I love the pumpkin cupcake scent in those!

2. What female celebrity do you wish was your sister? Hmm...Jennifer Lawrence or Amy Schumer.

{Week 1 With the Fitbit Alta}

Let me start this off much like the last fitbit post I made, this my opinion. I am basing this off of my experience with the tracking device I purchased. That is all. Since I know there are probably plenty of other moms (or people in general) out there searching for the best fitness tracker for them, I figured it would be good to just throw my opinion into the mix. So here you go!

{I'm Going to Complain}

I am seven kinds of annoyed right now and I feel like I need to get it off my chest or I'm going to freak out on someone.

I'm starting the New Year with a rant. I know. Annoying. But I can't help it. I feel like I need to get this off my chest or I'm going to go crazy.

When I first bought the tickets for the Backstreet Boys Vegas show (yay!) I knew who I wanted to go with me. She and I had been to countless concerts, she had taken me to my very first Backstreet Boys concert even. I knew she would have a good time. She had also already been

{Disney Bound | Animal Kingdom | Disney Springs}

On our last day at Disney World we headed to Animal Kingdom. Now this was sort of our off day. We knew it was a relatively small park and that there weren't a lot of big rides (or even small ones). It feels more like a huge zoo when you get down to it. We had even originally planned on just skipping it, but because we had done Magic Kingdom and gotten everything in that we wanted to, we decided to go ahead and see it. Why not right? Any Disney park is a good Disney park :).
