Nut Note

Yes, we are still here.  We are nearing month six of no Daddy, and baby Evelyn is 26 weeks.  

The boys are loving baby Evie. I must admit, I am a bit surprised…ha ha.  They like to feel her move, and, sometimes, they say they want her out…  We then discuss that she isn’t NEARLY ready yet.  😉

My four year old is still his same old self.  My two year old, however, has lost his mind.  He’s closer to three than two at this point, but everyone swears he’s hitting terrible two’s.  He thinks he a miniature sized boss!  

Not much longer and DADDY can deal with it!  😉  lol

In case I have not informed you darling folks, I started two new business this winter.  I am now an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay and a Beach Body Coach.  Promoting a beautiful you on the inside AND out!  I love both of these companies, and I am having a blast with them.

I have also taken up sewing…  I have been sewing things to put in the baby’s room. 🙂

Keeping busy and trying not to go crazy in this itty bitty world. 🙂  

Wish me luck!  😉

New Year, Dirty House?

So far, I am doing well with all my goals.  I have done more of my workout videos in the last week, than I did the whole month of December.  I, EVEN, became an official Beach Body Coach!  😉  Love, Love, Love my shakes and my get fit video!  Don’t be surprised if a THIRD blog pops up.  😉

I have been contemplating our garden.  It is not NEARLY big enough to make enough food to can, but we could at least eat well all summer.  I just need to optimize space and get it going!

I have, definitely, been reading AND blogging more.  I, finally, started “Dreams of Joy”.  I have been wanting to read it forever….LOVE Lisa See!  It is as awesome, so far, as I thought it would be. 🙂  We will, also, be starting a new book at church next Tuesday, “Bad Girls of the Bible“.  I will, definitely, update you on that book as soon as I start it!  🙂

I have been writing a lot in my other blog: Voyage Towards Up.  I missed you all, though, and I wanted to stop in and say HELLO!

The kids are doing great. 🙂  They are so smart, and I can honestly say my patience with their “not smart actions” is getting better.  Day by Day…

The problem that I have found with all the “bettering me” stuff is that it is worsening the house! I am making time for the things I want to accomplish, but now the house looks like this on a pretty constant basis!

Image

If anyone out there has a plan to remedy this, PLEASE help!  😉

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…

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.  😉 ***

What I Will Not Blog About

I will not blog about my two-year-old flipping out of the cart at Wal MArt today, AND cutting his head open.

Today’s lesson will not be:

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: Even though you know your child can understand you, it doesn’t mean he will ALWAYS listen.  He gets the bag when you ask; he puts things in the trash when you ask; he even puts his dishes on the counter for you.  None of this means that when he sees a delicious snack in the middle of an aisle, he will not launch out and over the side of the cart.  Yes, you have told him to be careful because he doesn’t want to fall and get hurt.  THIS is the one time he hears, probably even understands, but OH!  It is SOOOO worth it!!

Tie Him In!***

Have a GREAT Sunday all!!

(Yes, he is fine.  😉

The Craziest Day EVER at the McCrazy House!

I know, I know!  It’s been FOREVER!!  There is a reason though.  🙂

Below is an entry I wrote weeks ago, but I didn’t want to share it yet.  I wanted to make sure everything was good to go, so to speak, before I told the WORLD!

Quick catch up: Husband’s Deployed.  Doing well. Kids have started school. I layed on my couch for, probably, three weeks… I am FINALLY getting my energy back!

More posts to come with more details about what’s been going on around here, and about what we have been LEARNING!!!

vvvvvvv On with the show!! vvvvvvv

(Readers’s discretion is advised…LOTS of chic talk…)

Written September 10th, 2013;  The day of my darling boy’s fourth birthday!

This one tops it all!  Crazy McCrazy!

I have been on oral contraceptives for, right around, 14 years.  I have NEVER been pregnant without meaning to.  I, actually, say regularly that you just can’t get pregnant while really and truly meaning NOT to.  I am the perfect example!

I WAS the perfect example.

My husband and I had been debating off and on about having another baby when he gets home from deployment.  Yes, No, may so.  😉

AFTER he left I stopped my oral contraceptives.

I noticed the next week I was getting VERY dizzy when I stood, periodically….  Whatever….

Then, I noticed that when I drank my daily coke or three my heart was racing like I had drank five cups of espresso!  Hmmm…

Today, I noticed, again, that something that should be happening, still, had not happened…  HMMMM…

Let me just check…

Why yes Heather, you ARE pregnant!!!

I have thought and thought.  I have not missed any pills.  I have not taken any antibiotics.  After all this time why does it now decide not to work?!?!

This is in no way a bad thing.  As I said, we were planning/debating another baby anyway.  This was just a BIT of a surprise.

After I took the the TWO tests I took a picture, with the instructions included, to send to my husband.  The email read : God seems to have made the decision for us!

**End September 10th Post**

Back to now.  😉

I have, since, figured out what happened.  Today’s Lesson:

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: When your husband leaves for an extended period of time, and you want to stop your oral contraceptives, DO NOT stop them for AT LEAST a week after.  You just never know what may be going on in there…***

Weekly Nut Note

I REALLY have to start writing down the things my 4 year old says…

He has hit the age where he says insane things ALL THE TIME.  Sometimes they make sense; sometimes they don’t make sense.   He uses the big words he hears, and they may or may not belong where he puts them.  🙂

He’s becoming quite the little comedian.  The other day he had two t-shirts on.  He pulled one off.  As he was revealing the one that was on the inside, he says, “I bring you…THIS ONE!” and points to the second shirt…  Where does he get this stuff??

The week has otherwise been quiet!  Thankfully.  They started school and soccer this week.  They loved both and have been wonderful boys!  Derek even got ALL GREEN STICKERS at school!

No house painting being done by the two-year old or anything else of that nature.  Keep your fingers crossed for a wondrous week!  😉

***McCrazy Daily Lesson:  Be thankful for the quiet.  It often precedes the storm!***

Are your kids nuts!!  Would the happenings of YOUR house drive a sane person mad??  Tell me about it!!  Would love to post here on MCCRAZY DAILY LESSON!!!  The madness can always be used to learn a lesson!
