Rough, But Good Day

Today was a pretty good day. But I didn't think it was going to be when I first got out of bed this morning. I hurt so bad when I first got up. Moving all that furniture around and cleaning yesterday just about kicked my butt! Then once I got moving around and doing things I felt much better. I should have done a few things outside, today (February and it was almost 60 degrees!), but I didn't. I just did stuff in the house.
At noon, they did live video feed of the Powell boys' funeral (here). I was only able to watch about the first 20 minutes and then had to quit. It was just too emotional. It just makes me sick that a father would do that to his kids.
I showered and then son #1 and I went & filled up the vehicles. Then he went to his dad's and I went to my mom's. Then I came home, fed the horses and then had dinner. I was playing on the computer and the hubs told me that Whitney Houston had died. It just makes me sick when stuff like that happens. I loved her voice!
Well, that is how my day went. Hope you all had a great day!
Til we meet again!

What a Great Day!

This was one of the best days I have had in a long time! Started out with a lot of peace and quiet this morning (kids stayed @ there dad's last night). In fact, maybe too much peace and quiet. Lol! I am so used to daughter #1 (disabled) being here 24/7 and every time I turn around I am tripping over her. She also needs to tell me everything she is doing, i.e.; mom, i'm going to potty. mom, i'm going to take a bath. i'm taking a break from the computer, so you can get back on your computer now; and so on. With her being gone this morning it was so quiet! You know that quiet that even when you have music, t.v. (whatever) on you still hear every little noise, that is how my house was this morning.
So, after a couple of hours of that, I decided I needed to find something to do. I was getting really tired of the kids' pig sty bedrooms and I decided that it was time for mom to clean!  
So, I cleaned and rearranged and cleaned some more. But I had most of it done in 2 hours. That surprised me cause to move beds, I have to tare them completely apart, move them and put them back together, which I am getting very good at.  What was left was just things I needed kidos to go through and decide what needed to be thrown away and what needed to be kept and put away.
Later this evening the hubs was making dinner (tuna helper) and son #2 (almost 15) does not like that, so I asked him if he wanted me to cook him some hot dogs. He said yes & I asked him how many, he said 2 or 3.  We got him good & we weren't even trying. The hubs told him that if he didn't get off the computer and get some wood brought in the house, he was going to eat his hot dogs, he said okay, just a minute. A couple of minutes later I said, "Ooh, you only get 2 hot dogs."  He said, " I'm getting off the computer right now!"  The hubs & I looked at each other and started laughing, I said, "No, you only get two hot dogs, cause that is all that was left!" He thought the hubs was eating his hot dog, cause he hadn't gotten off the computer and brought wood in yet. It was really funny! You have to know son #2.
Well, hope everyone had a great day!
Til we meet again!

Okay Day

It has been an okay day. I haven't done much. I have felt pretty crappy and tonight I had a bad headache so I sent all the kids to stay the night at their dad's house, I didn't go to my photography class tonight. Then to top it all off, our ABC channel didn't work all through Grey's Anatomy so I didn't get to watch that. But it worked on Private Practice, so that was good.
Hope you all had a good day. Have a good night.
Til we meet again!

Quick Update

My internet has been down since Tuesday morning, haven't been able to post. Now it's up and running again. I did get a lot accomplished the past two days not having internet, so that was good. The hubs thinks we should just get rid of it so I will do more things! Lol!
Have a great day and I will post later.
Til we meet again!

OMG! Sorry I missed a couple of days but it was a very busy weekend and a very great one! Spent Saturday & Sunday with the (extended) family. It was actually much better than I thought it would be. The family (brothers, sisters,) & I usually don't get get a long very often. So, all in all, it was awesome!
Saturday my nephew got baptized and then we had a luncheon after.
It was also #1 son's 19th birthday! I cannot believe that he is 19! It seems like it was just yesterday that I found out we were having him and now he is 19! Where does the time go? It is just so crazy!
On Sunday, my niece had her baby blessed and then we had another luncheon after that. It was so much fun!
Then we came home and watched the super bowl and then we watched the voice. I love that show!
So, this is what made the weekend crappy. #2 daughter (12 years old) spent the weekend at her dad's. Yesterday, he let her watch the movie, Paranormal Activity! She is 12 years old!!!! Not only is it rated R, but she is the the type of child that has panic attacks when the wind blows! Need less to say, we were up til after midnight trying to get her calmed down and to sleep. Then, she was so mad when I made her get up this morning and go to school. But, she went and she stayed all day. So, that was good.
Here are a couple of pics from yesterday.

So that is how my weekend went and my Monday was quite boring. Hope you all had a great day!
