WOW, I totally suck!!!

In my defense life is out of my control lately. Yea I still suck, suck at blogging, suck at being a mom, suck at being a wife, suck at being a daughter, suck at being a sister I have been non stop at work most of this month. I have been working until at least 7pm, by the time I get home all I want to do is sit and stare at the tv with my mouth hanging open. I am so tired, so behind and feel like crawling in bed and staying there for a week.
So to all of you I have neglected, Happy Father's Day,Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, Happy whatever day. I love you all!

Where has my time gone?????????

This is one of the places I have been spending extra time. Farm town on facebook. You build your own little farm, raise your crops, get animals, harvest your crops and sell them at the market. It is fun. check it out sometime.
Yea this week has pretty much sucked otherwise. I worked late everyday, too late and had little to no fun at all, people were crabby, DH was whinny. I think I was spoiled by my week off without being aggravated.
The workout room, downstairs is functional and I need to make sure I use it first thing in the morning or I will not make time later in the day. I will post some before and after pictures soon
For DH to hook up the satellite tv in the workout room, he had to run the wires from the box to the tv in there. To run the wires, he had to remove some ceiling tiles in my scrapbook room. Did he say anything before hand so I could cover stuff up????Hell no!!! Did he break some tiles removing them? yes! Did he make one hell of a mess ALL over my tables, supplies and even some PICTURES??? What the hell was he thinking???? Oh that's right he wasnt!!!! I could not believe the MESS! I wanted so bad to clean it up right away....but since he had to replace the broken tiles and would make a mess again, there was no point. So I blew the dust and crap off the pictures and covered everything with sheets. Since I worked such long days all this week I have not made it down there yet to clean up the mess, I am just sick over it and my hope is to get it done this weekend.
It's late and I am tired. I will post more over the weekend.

Can't wait for "New Moon"

I have read all the Twilight books, loved the first one and really enjoyed the rest (sequels are nothing like the originals, but still enjoyable)
I have watched the movie Twilight several times and loved it. I am so excited to know the new movie is coming out later this year.

Happy Dance

Yea been doing a little happy dance lately, and why you may ask, well on Sat morning at 4:15 am my DH and son (Brendan) left for a WHOLE WEEK. I got up when they left to say goodbye and to also savor every single second that DH is gone. Is that terrible of me?????? Dont get me wrong I do love the DH and I am sure I will miss him at some point. But I can watch what I want on tv. When I clean the house it will stay that way. ( Austin, my youngest is home with me, but he is not the messy one of the bunch and he is a people leaser) So I have been doing some extra cleaning up and throwing away, I figured if he hasnt used it, seen it or thought about it in the past 5 years, it is out of here.
So I am going to enjoy every moment I can between now and Friday night at 11:30 pm, when they are due back.
Maybe a little extra Happy dancing will help me lose some more weight also.

Look what he can do now!!

It is a little hard to see in this picture,yea I know what the heck is this a picture of, right. Well this is Austin's mouth/tongue. Right above his bottom teeth is a "Short Frenulum" which caused him to be tongue tied. Austin is now 11 years old. He started speech therapy at his school in 2nd grade, 2 times a week. His progress was slow. I consulted the speech therapist where I work, Kelly (love ya, mean it, your the best) and she wanted to work with him for a while. In a few short weeks she mentioned he was "tongue tied" and if he got his tongue clipped it might help. I looked into it and figured why not, it could only help and not make things worse. In this picture you can see the the short frenulm keeps his tongue from raising up any higher, and he is unable to stick his tongue out all the way.
He is actually excited about having this done, especially if it helps him talk more clearly, he is obviously nervous and a little scared it is going to hurt.
In this picture this is the highest he can stick it up in his mouth, and it cause the tongue to puff up in the back.
This is a happy camper after the procedure. The Dr did the clipping in his office and a matter of minutes, numbed it first, the snip with the scissors. I was so proud of him! Here he is able to touch his up to the roof of his mouth. Something he could never do before and I had no idea he couldn't do this. His brother asked him "dude how did you get peanut butter off the roof of your mouth before" he answered " with my finger"
Here he can stick up for the first time.

And here sticking it out and down. He was so excited, all the way home in the car he played, moving his tongue around. He said he was so happy & excited that he could have ran a mile, no 3 miles.
Everyday he gets alittle better, practicing his words and his tongue exercises.
It's a shame that he spent so many years in therapy before and no one noticed his tongue before. Now all that matters is that Kelly discovered it, made a great recommendation and he can only get better from here.
Every couple of days he will say, "hey mom, look what I can do now"
