I think it's time for some junk.

Havin our Friday night movie night one day early since we have plans tomorrow night with some friends. I can't wait to watch this weeks pick! Coraline :) My Koko can't get over how it's HER name but with a "line" at the end. Although, the buttons on the eyes kinda freak me out.


I love having my kids home for the Summer. I love taking them to the pool and beach and spending time with them. BUT, towards the end of the Summer everyone starts buggin everyone and I feel lately that I'm getting to that point. The past FIVE DAYS have been non stop talk from Jake about freakin military ribbons and ALL their meanings. Who has what, when dad can get what, what his idol Peter Pace has (he's memorized this), what HE'S going to get....etc.

I'M GOING CRAZY.

He'd been beggin me to take him to the PX and buy some more ribbons for himself so we finally did today. Not only did he get more ribbons, but he bought himself the Colonel Insignias too. He'd been wearing the Lt. Colonel oak leaves from Uncle Charles but I guess he got promoted.

And here he is in all his glory...the man himself...Jake's SUPERHERO...

PETER PACE.

Yes, Jake can tell you what EVERY SINGLE RIBBON he wears means and how many times he's received it. He knows Pace's uniform better than his own face. He googles Pace's name about 700 million times a day to make sure nothing changes or he didn't forget something. And the best part? He feels the need to make sure I KNOW all of this too.

Like I said...

I AM GOING CRAZY.

Dear School,

I miss you, please come back soon.

Love The Mutha.



Things have been a tad crazy over here lately. Coming home from a trip kinda throws you outta whack and that's exactly what's happened. This week Miah and Kora have been in Sports Skills Camp and they're loving it. Miah is especially good at anything involving running. He LOVES going fast and showing off his speed. Kora is amazing at basketball. She was making baskets left and right and blowing all the other kids (and boys) outta the water.









I had to purchase one of these little babies after my OB appointment on Wednesday. I'm at 28 weeks now and am showing signs for preeclampsia. High blood pressure, protein in urine, dizziness and swelling. I'm supposed to take my BP several times a day to make sure it stays normal and if not, I'm supposed to take it easy for the rest of the day. Not too excited about that since I can't really AFFORD to just go "take it easy" if needs be. I mean, I WILL...but it'll be hard with the other chickens runnin around. I got a blessing last night and I feel good about handling whatever may come my way.



What the CRAP is up stupid barbers who think they need to give my Miah a new hairline? I get sooo freakin annoyed at this. It's happened several times and I just don't get it. YES he's Latino but did I TELL you to shave him a new hairline? UHmm NO. Did you do it to my white boy son Jakob who is getting a haircut at the exact same time? Uhhm NO. SO WTC?! It pissees me off because once they do this, it's like UNfixable. You have to let it grow out and personally...I think it looks ridiculous. We live in a freaking military town and for some reason it's IMPOSSIBLE to find a DECENT barber who can give you a good lookin high reg with a smooth fade and LEAVE THE TOP ALONE. UGH.

(Kim, you actually have been the only one who has done a good job with the boys but I'm so last minute that it doesn't always work out for me to come by.)




I'm really wanting to eat about 15 bags of this yummy carmel popcorn but my SS won't send me the recipe. I'm just sitting here...waiting...just...waiting...




I've missed you and your lovely comments. Please come back to me! I see I dropped one follower today and although I'm not too upset by it (I only cried for 4 hours and sent my BP through the roof) it DID make me sad. I'll do better...I promise.

oh let me know how you like coraline...i think y'all will love it...i think it's a good one...and what's up with the new hairline for miah..do you have a real pic??

Kim said...

You make me laugh! If you don't want your boys haircut to look like a barber shop hair cut... don't go to a barber shop :) Or just tell them don't line it up.

You better watch that blood pressure missy! The # 172 over 117 will get you babies 6 to 7 weeks early after being bed rested for 2 - 6 weeks. It is really hard to let chickens run amok but that baby bun of yours needs the oven time especially since he's a boy. 28 is almost out of the super scary range but 32 or 33 is way better!

I've missed you, but take care of yourself!! Your true followers will stay with you!

How was the movie?? Maybe Paddy will like it?? He was completely taken with The Nightmare Before Christmas, not that I let him watch it on purpose!

Jessica... wait till you see HOW they get the eyes on in Coraline...yes freaky.

Sorry about the BP, I am still following you. Sorry I haven't been a very good commenter...I will try to do better. It has been crazy busy over here.

Have a fun Weekend,

Kristiina

I'll trade a kid talking about medals and that totally blingged out P.P. for Alex's craziness anyday. Your doctor telling you to take it easy reminds me of mine being horrified that i didn't have a nanny for my other two when i was preg with the twins. Oh, i'm sorry Dr. Apparently you've confused your bank account with mine. But seriously--make yourself otherwise you'll have a little nugget in the NICU and that's NO FUN.

Okay, here it is even though it is a day and a movie night late...why are we friends again? (is what you're thinking, right?)

Bring all ingredients to a boil, boil for 2.5 minutes.
Pour over 3 bags of popped Butter Lovers Microwaves Popcorn, Toss. YUMMMMY

Oh summer I have tried that recipe and it's the only way to eat popcorn! Ok I'm confused why anyone stops following someones blog? Unless they were completely offended by what they have on there or even if they have become boring. I still have tons of blogs I follow but dont read as much anymore..doesnt make me want to go out of my way to actually STOP following them. I tell people about your blog all the time so hopefully you get some more followers b/c I love you!

I've had one of those weeks too...well, not exactly. My kids weren't talking about military ribbons and my BP wasn't through the roof (actually, maybe it was...), but my two wouldn't stop talking/crying/screaming/fighting, etc. Need a good weekend with my "lover" to fix it and have him take these babies somewhere...

Anywho, take care of yourself. You're in the homestretch. And I don't know why anyone would stop being a follower either...what a loser. Take care!! And thanks for your blog. Makes me smile :)

i hated coraline. yuck.. boring. and random. okay... now on to Miah and his brilliant haircut. EW. Poor guy.. it's like they are so engrainingly racist that they can't HELP but cut his hair all ghetto. nice. turds. and that popcorn... okay this actually about your popcorn, indiana popcorn that you bought over at my place.... it was so good that we get it EVERY time we go shopping now.. at first enos was all, "so what it's kettle corn." and then i noticed the bag getting more and more empty NOT due to my own addictions to it. then i found him with empty bowls of popcorn on several occasions and his explanation? "man.. this stuff is so freakin' addicting! it's like the perfect balance of sweet and salty." yes enos.. yes it is. thank you sister.... sorry ss is sneaky and won't divulge the recipe. i think you should hold something ransom of HERS until she does. mmmmm... caramel popcorn...
