I am in the middle of the worst headache I have had in months.This totally, completely sucks. I am attempting to lay down, this seems to be helping. At times like this I love my laptop. The typing is taking my mind off of it for the time being. Also, currently watching Dinner: Impossible. I love this show. The missions he ends up with are always interesting, and impressively challenging. 

Fighting with a sleepy kid

I love (said with sarcasm) the sleep fighting toddler phase. The little angel was up until almost 2 o'clock this morning. Normally not THAT big of a deal. However, he decided to get back up at 8 o'clock. Now mom is exhausted and munchkin is irritable. So thankful it's almost nap time. I think mommy may be taking a nap with the baby today! Maybe. Depends on if the phone stops running so I can.

Here Comes The Storm AGAIN

Just when I thought the chances of us getting a late afternoon storm were down, what do I hear but the rumbling of thunder. Guess that means we're getting another storm. Ah well. I know someone said we needed rain, I just don't think they meant we needed it every single day.
On a different note, looks like my little camper is finally going to give in and take his nap. This comes after me fighting with him to lay down for almost 45 minutes. We are at that point where he does not seem to think he needs a nap, and I beg to differ. When he doesn't take a nap, he's cranky and ready for bed at 7 pm. Since Jerry doesn't get home before 8:30 most nights this does not work.

Thoughts from Mommy Brain

Why is it my darling 2 1/2 year old drops things behind the couch, then expects me to automatically stop whatever it is I am doing to retrieve it? Right now I know there are at least 3 cars back there, and he expects me to fish them out. For right now they can remain right where they are. I'm sure I will get them out of there in a little bit, but for now the only person they are bothering is him!

Complete Randomness

The weather still sucks here in Georgia. It started out as a gorgeous day, and as usual now it's raining and nasty. I had to go out in the pouring rain and rescue our trash can from the middle of the road. So of course I got soaking wet. For some reason my silly dog refuses to seek shelter in the rain, she would rather sit on the porch. No matter how awful the weather gets, she is on the porch. So that is the latest from here.

Life in the south.

We have hit that part of the summer, where for whatever reason it HAS to storm every afternoon/evening. Sometimes the storms are nasty, sometimes it is just a little rain. Yesterday was nasty, I almost went and got in the bathtub with Chase. Last night was awful too, even though we only has like a 30% chance. This afternoon it sounds like it may get rather nasty again! Right now it is raining, and thundering. So much for Jerry cutting the grass, which he was headed out the door to do when the thunder started. 10 minutes later the rain started. I think he was kinda happy about it, who really wants to spend their only day off cutting the grass? I know I don't.

Another recall

Today Kellogg's announced the recall of several of their cereals due to an off-flavor, and a smell coming from the liner of the box. No other products are involved in this recall. According to the company the health risks are low. Please click the link to read the entire press release.
To call the company the number is: 888-801-4163. This is the Kellogg Consumer Response Center, and calls will be taken from 8am - 8pm Eastern Time.


Michael Jackson has been dead for a year. Really, honestly who cares. He's gone! People seriously need to get over it. Celebrities die all the time, and for the most part the media lets them rest in peace. There are a few exceptions to this rule. 1) Anything bad coming out in the public after they die. 2) Legal issues, either concerning the death, or the estate. I understand in those cases. Other than that they are remembered during one of the award shows with every other celebrity who has died in the same year.
I honestly do not care where Michael Jackson's kids are vacationing on the 1 year anniversary of his death! I find it amazing that given the person he was, everyone is still making such a big deal out of it.
Farrah Fawcett died the SAME day, and barely even got mentioned in the news because everyone was so caught up with Michael Jackson. Give it a rest already.

My baby is growing up.

I knew this day would come, but I didn't think it would get here so fast. Chase will now go sit on the potty when someone asks if he needs to potty. He still hasn't gone in the potty, but at least he will sit on it. Hard to believe he's already 2 and 1/2. Seems like just yesterday he was a newborn. This is my little monster, and me the day he was born.

Happy Father's Day!!!

I would like to take this time to wish all the dad's out there a wonderful Father's Day. Most especially to my wonderful, incredible, awesome husband. I also want to add something I found on Facebook in memory of both my dads.

Roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me. Place them in my Daddy's arms & tell him they're from me. Tell him that I love & miss him & when he turns to smile, place a kiss upon his cheek & hold him for a while. Because remembering him is easy.. I do it every day. There's an ache within my heart that will never go away. I LOVE AND MISS YOU DAD, SO Much ..........♥♥ ♥ ♥

I miss you both so much! I think of you both on a daily basis! I love you both!!!!

Why Won't This Incredibly Sleepy Child Sleep??

It is 10:39 PM. Chase has been up since 8:40 AM with NO nap! I know he's tired. He's fighting it so hard, and I really wish he would give it up already. I always have so much fun trying to do homework with him being cranky. Ranks right up there with having a tooth pulled, without Novacaine.

Hell's Kitchen Episode #3

Started to get mad looked like my night of TV viewing was going to be messed up. Imagine my surprise when I flipped to FOX for Hell's Kitchen only to see the president was going to speak. Definitely irritated me. I'm glad his message only lasted 20 minutes, so that wasn't bad. Then it was made much better when I learned tonight is a 2 hour Hell's Kitchen. That definitely made up for it being 20 minutes late starting. If nothing else I can catch it on Hulu tomorrow if anything is missing.

One of these days I seriously hope the 2 1/2 year old will grasp the concept of karma. Last night should have been his first tip off, but I doubt it will be that easy. He was attempting to throw his soccer ball onto the counter in my kitchen. He missed the counter top, and got the edge of the counter instead. This led to him smacking himself in the center of his forehead with the soccer ball. The moral of this story: Mommy knows best. After being told not to do it, and doing it anyway he punished himself.

Judge Doubles Lohan's Bail After Bracelet Violation

It's amazing. Because she is a celebrity the judge only doubled her fine. Had she been a normal person her butt would have gone to jail for the violation. How is that fair to anyone. Apparently Lindsey Lohan figured that was exactly what was going to happen. She violated the conditions of her release. That was her call, and her stupidity. She should have to face to consequences like a normal person.

Lack of internet

Ok it has come to my attention, that blogging is hard work when you have no internet. I hate moving with a passion. I just got lovely news. I will have my cable and internet today which is June 8, I can live with that. However, I will not have phone until the 11th. I swear I hate Mediacom. An intelligent person would think since the service was being transferred from one house to the other, that all of the service would be transferred together, as I was just informed not so much. What a load of crap. At least I can send texts to people through my YIM or I would be completely without communication. Now I guess I take my wonderful hubby up on the use of his cell phone until they get out here to hook up my phone.
Well on a happy note, I found out from the Mediacom tech that for whatever reason, I will actually get to keep my phone. However, they will still be out sometime Friday to do something to it.

Gotta love moving.

We sure picked a rotten weekend to move. The thunderstorm I could have lived with. That just means waiting for it to quit. Not a big deal. Then the power went out, I admit that part sucked. Now I am still waiting for the power to come back on. I have dishes and laundry that need to be done, and I can’t accomplish either of those little jobs with no power. If I at least had hot water, I could do the dishes. I guess that’s the downside to an electric hot water heater. On the plus side at least the little munchkin is with Nanny and Papa, which means he’s not stuck up my butt, so at least I am getting something accomplished. On a brighter note, since I am taking this break to try and cool off, at least my blog post will be done for tonight!

We are officially moving.

Not very far, but moving none the less. I am looking forward to it. The munchkin will be with my wonderful mother-in-law and father-in-law tomorrow while I try and see exactly how much I can get done. Then Sunday Jerry and I will move the furniture with the little one under foot. Should be interesting. Push comes to shove, and I get him to sit in his carseat and watch cartoons. For some reason he thinks being in the carseat is great, as long as he's not actually in the car. Actually he's not that bad about being in the car now, when he was younger it was war. However, the day we turned his carseat forward facing was better for all of us. Will post pictures as soon as I get off my lazy butt and download them!!! LOL :)

McDonald's Recalls "Shrek" glasses

This morning McDonald's has issued a recall for 12 million of the glasses they have been using to promote the release of the latest and supposedly final installment of the "Shrek" films. Apparently these glasses have Cadmium in the paint. PLEASE do not let children drink out of these glasses. According to the article "We believe the Shrek glassware is safe for consumer use," Whitman said. "However, again to ensure that our customers receive safe products from us, we made the decision to stop selling them and voluntarily recall these products effective immediately." From what I am reading in the article, the cadmium can get on the hands while the glass is being used, then can enter the body if the hands are not washed after using the glass. Personally, I do not wash my hands every single time I get a drink out of my glass, I don't know anyone who does. So I guess in that respect it could be a problem.

We bought one of the glasses. Am I seriously going to worry about the recall? Nope. With any of the glasses like that, they are bought strictly as decoration. My glass "Puss in Boots" is sitting on top of the entertainment center. I know beyond any reasonable shadow of a doubt, the glass will never be used for anything other than pencils, and things like that.

My Wonderful Husband.

Occasionally I have to take time out to remember how incredibly blessed I am. I know I am an incredibly lucky young woman. Being married to your best-friend is a great thing. With my wonderful husband I know I can be myself, and he will still love me no matter what. Sometimes a girl just needs to know these things. I also know that no matter how bad my day was, it will get better as soon as he walks in the door. Or he can call and perk my day up. I don't normally have bad days, but anyone with a toddler will know what I mean. :) Terrible 2's moved in here when Chase was 18 months old, now he's 29 months old. I assume before much longer the terrible 2's will move out. I'm going to hope around December when he turns 3. Back to the topic at hand. My wonderful, loving, husband. We've been together for over 6 years. Will be 7 years in November, married for 6 the same month. Life just keeps getting better. I fall more in love with him with each passing day. He is the love of my life.

Blog Changes

Making changes to the blog. If you have suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments.

Thanks for taking the time to read it.

Time for another book review.

This book was unbelievable. A real page turner from the time I picked it up, until the time I finished it. I would recommend this book and this author to anyone.

Hollywood Loses another Great.

RIP Rue McClanahan. It breaks my heart to know that Hollywood has had so many losses in the past few weeks. I love catching old reruns of "The Golden Girls". Always makes me laugh. My heart goes out to the family and friends of this very gifted person.

Episode 1 of Hell's Kitchen New Season

This looks to be an interesting season. Chef Ramsey made a promise last night that the chefs would complete the first night dinner service. I was amazed that part of the chefs actually managed to pull it off. Even if Chef did have to send part of each team back to the dorms.

When it came time to send someone home. Stacy was sent packing. Would not have been my choice, but I think it will work out. I have a feeling Fran will be the next woman to go home. My vote is Salvatore will be the first man to leave. Can't wait until Tuesday to see what happens next.

Hell's Kitchen

Season Premier Tonight!!! 8 PM EST on FOX. I am so ready for this. There are times I wish this show had two seasons a year. However, it gives me something to look forward to at the start of the summer.
