We're In!

Officially in the new house, but I'm too busy unpacking and dealing with Drew to post right now! I'll get an updated picture up eventually.

My Next 30 Years

I left my 20s behind on Sunday. It kind of came and went without too much fan-fare, as we're in the midst of moving and getting on with the rest of our lives. Which is very appropriate for this blog subject. I think Tim McGraw says it best in his song, so I'm going to plagiarize terribly and post the words here. I don't have time to come up with something better, I'm a busy Mama who barely has time to post at all, let alone any original, titillating material. I've never been one for making a big deal out of birthdays anyway, so here ya go.

I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age.
The ending of an era, and the turning of a page.
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here.
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years.

In my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun.
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done. (not really, I'm proud of all that)
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears,
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years.

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores,
Cry a little less, laugh a little more.
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear.
Figure out just what I'm doing here
In my next thirty years.

Oh my next thirty years, I'm gonna watch my weight.
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late.
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers, (yeah, right!)
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years.

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life.
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife. (well, my hubby)
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years.

Maybe later I'll come up with something original. For now, this will have to do.

I Hate Computers

I just got a new computer, and it's fabulous.

At least it WAS. Until yesterday when something happened. I don't know what, but something did. Now my WiFi is connected, but I have almost no signal from my wireless router, which means the only reason I'm able to post this blog is because I'm connected directly to the modem. Plugged in. And I hate plugs. The old computer sitting RIGHT next to me is connected and is fine. But my spanking new machine? Nada. BOOO!

Plus, I can't get Outlook to actually SEND my email! Receive, yes. Send, no. It's not a good day, Tater.

Why do I always have these problems? What in the world could be causing this? Do I just have bad karma? Is it a sign we need to leave this crappy apartment? Is it a sign I've become too dependent on my laptop? Whatever it is, it's ruined the start of my day.

Thou Shalt Not Covet

I'm not really a 'coveting' person by nature. I just don't really ever WANT things that others have.


I am coveting Kelly Rippa's super-toned arms. I have mentioned before how super-cute I think she is, and I wish I could ever look that good after 3 kids (maybe, one of these day). But her arms are awesome. Makes me want to lift a bunch of groceries over my head.

Affirmation--10 Things

You know you have an infant in your house when:

  1. You can not glance around any room of the house without spying some sort of baby paraphernalia.
  2. You plan your day in 3-hour increments (roughly).
  3. Your spouse gets home and asks what you did today, and you have no idea.
  4. Poop and spit-up clean-up are everyday occurrences.
  5. Your wardrobe is limited to outfits you can nurse in without pulling it up over your head.
  6. You haven't watched a feature-length film without commercials since baby arrived, let alone been to the movies.
  7. Your husband is close to sending your boobies a 'Miss You' card.
  8. You want to discuss your breast infection with anyone who will listen (most men DON'T want to know).
  9. You go out to eat at ridiculously early's just you and the old folks.
  10. And last but not least....
You love it and can't remember your life any other way!

Good Boy!

Drew Bear slept through the night last night! He went down about 10pm, and woke up this morning at 6:30! I, of course, woke up at his usual 5am, because my own body clock is set for then, and because the boobs fill up and get rather sore and leaky. TMI, I know. Pigs knows of which I speak, and Geek, just something for you to look forward to.

But leaky boobs are ok! Well worth it for the extra rest. Let's just hope I didn't just jinx it by exclaiming so much....

Daddy's funny!

I just had to post this picture from last night. He's getting stronger and stronger!

Fingers Crossed!

We have the house inspection today. I'm not really nervous, I just hope they don't find a termite family decided to move in before we did! Keep your fingers crossed!!!
