McCrazy Update

Have you been wondering if things have settled down around here??!?  Let me paraphrase: no.

The four year old has lost his MIND!  He’s growing too fast, and his mind is all over he place…crazy and nutty AND smart….  He has been asking all sorts of intelligent questions.

But, then he does this…

Mmmm Hmmm…

Best Buy Shout Out

I finally did it!!!  I remembered to take my Kindle Fire in to get it checked out at Best Buy. 

It’s almost two years old, and it doesn’t charge correctly; sometimes it doesn’t charge at all…  It has been like this for quite a while, and I managed to sneak in right before my two-year warranty expired.  😉

I figured they would send it off and fix the plug area…  

NOPE!

They are sending it off and sending me a new one.  However, they are on backorder.  SO, if they cannot manage to get me a new one sent out within 15 days, they will issue a refund and I can BUY a new one…even upgrade!

How awesome is that?!??!  No questions…  No Stress… No hassle!!  I didn’t even need paperwork!  It’s all in their computer!!  

Just done!  🙂

You made my day Best Buy!!

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: I rarely buy the warranty, but will DEFINITELY continue to shop at Best Buy AND buy the warranty…  **

The Lure of Christmas Goodies

What it is about Christmastime that makes plain candy and chocolates seem so much more alluring?!??

I mean seriously.  I started making cookies, fudge, and cake the begining of November so I could get multiple boxes to the ship for Christmas.  Homemade Christmas deliciousness I, usually, only make this time of year.

YET, last week I decided to buy three boxes of Little Debbies.  They were three for $5, so I had to, right?!?

Image

Don’t get me wrong…  These are DELICIOUS!  I love Little Debbie!  (Thanks DAd.)  But I can eat these year round…  I needed to get them now, why??  Because they shaped like cute little Christmas Trees and colored red and green??!?

It hasn’t gotten any better either.  With my Christmas Party coming up this weekend, I TOTALLY fell for the large display of delicious chocolate at the front door of Walmart.

Image

I almost never buy these things…  but I’m having a party and look how festive!!  Silver, red, green, AND gold wrappers!  Thank you chocolate factory!  MY party just wouldn’t have been the same without these!

:-/

Oh!  Let’s not forget these baby’s!

Image

A MUST have are red and green m&m’s for my candy dish!!

Geeze Louise, please tell me I am not the only sucker out there!??!?!

Oh well…who could resist those cute little wrappers??  😉

It was a well rounded day, however…  We cleaned, we got gas, we gave a lady at the gas pump $5, because she left her wallet at work and had no gas, AND we got our tree up!!

Image

Santa picked it out!  😉

Spreading Christmas cheer in every way we can!  😉

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: Make the most of your days…if those little candy trees make you happy, go for it!  But remember the real reason for the season, and help others when the opportunity shows itself!***

Ringing the Bell

The McKay Family is VERY excited to be ringing the Salvation Army Bell for the first time tomorrow!

The boys have already put money in this year, so the older one knew what I was talking about when I told him what we were doing.  🙂  He is excited to do it.  I do not believe the little knows, but he’ll fine.  😉

I am happy that we can help, and I am hoping for this to be the starting place for the boys to get a better understanding of “it’s not all about YOU!”

Image

When we are done, it’ll be time for—-cupcake delivery to the church!  So glad I found the energy to get them done.  🙂

Tis the season, but the season for helping others should be year round!

Newest Journey

I am 17 1/2 weeks pregnant, and I started a workout program today: Brazil Butt Lift!  Yes!!!

I felt kind of silly doing measurements and before pictures….  I am going to measure AND look bigger in February…lol.

measure tape

Not the point, though.

With my first, I worked full time until 38 weeks… at which time everyone insisted I quit and rest before the baby got here…

With my second, I walked a three or four mile MOD walk at 35 weeks.  No problem.

With my third (now), I am AWFUL!  I get exhausted walking up stairs; daily activities wear me out!  Working forty hours a week (like with my first), YEAH RIGHT!  :-/

I do realize I am pregnant, and I do know I can’t push a NEW workout regimen TOO hard.  I do know all of this, but I am excited to start feeling better!!

Sixty squats? No problem!  :-/

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: There’s no better time than now to get healthy!!  Why wait?!***

(I do know Christmas cookies are hard to deny…  I said workout regimen; I did not say no holiday goodies!  😉

For giggles, here’s the before picture!

Warning…17 1/2 weeks pregnant and white as a ghost!  Shield your eyes!!

What to Do When You Don’t Know What You Want to Do

 

I have a strange problem.  I want to work.   I want to do something worth while.  

I am raising and growing our children, and yes, I do know the importance of that.  However, I am still not used to sitting at home.  And what about when they are all in school??  

I am a L(icensed) P(ractical) N(urse).  I do have a career.  The hours of a nursing home, which is what I LOVE to do, aren’t very child friendly, though.  There’s also the fact that I haven’t worked in years, and by the time I do go back, I have no idea who MIGHT hire me….   :-/

I have thought and thought about other/possibly better choices, but I have no idea!  I do enjoy writing, but don’t even begin to know how to get that on a serious basis.  I think real estate would be fun, but I am not always a people type person…  I also have a hard time talking people into things…  You tell me no, well then, it’s no.   

What else??!?  I have no idea.

I am sure this will pass… I do this once a year, or so.  🙂  I’l.l just go back to loving and enjoying my babies and growing the extra one.  We find out what it is in 11 days!  So excited!!  We discussed and revamped names today.  I am very happy with both, boy and girl, names, now.  🙂

Good Night World.  Hope to talk to you, again, soon!

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: Go with the flow…  God will pop up and show you the way.  😉 ***
