Day 3

Day 3...

Two things happened when I woke up this morning.  First both kids were in my bed.  That's highly uncommon.  Second I was awaken by the sound of water.  Running/dripping water.  I run out into the kitchen and the sink is overflowing onto the floor.  Water, water everywhere.  I called the resident manager.  The plumber is supposed to be out.  In the mean time I've been bailing pot fulls of water and flushing it down the toilet.  I don't trust the drains.  Now the carpet in my hallways is wet.  This is becoming such a nightmare. 

In other news I figured out how to fix the shower curtain DS6 broke yesterday.  Go me!  Now if I could just solution my plumbing problems...

Day 2

Day 2...

Morning went off without a hitch.  On my way home from work a huge piece of cloth was flying around the interstate.  Of course it get stuck to the front of my van so I can barely see.  I pull off and clear the debris.  Back on the interstate I go to pick up kiddo's.  We get home and somehow DS6 manages to pull down the shower curtain rod.  Great.  I can't get it back up.  What to do?  Whilst pondering that I decided to wash the dishwasher full of dirty dishes.  No drain in the kitchen remember?  Yeah.  I had to wash those bad boys by hand in the bathroom sink.  Not cool. Bet you haven't noticed this before, but the bathroom sink is lower than the kitchen sink.  Oy my back.

Day 1

So day 1..what can we say about that... DH left.  He's officially gone. 

Kids off to day care, me off to work.  Sounds normal.  When we got home I noticed standing water in my kitchen sink.  I called the Resident Manager of my apartment building.  Plumber was there within the hour.  Good, right?  WRONG.  Turns out the the main line out of my kitchen has collapsed.  The line is buried in the cement under my kitchen.  I have yet to hear exactly WHEN that's going to get's been thrown around that we'll have to move out while the work is being done. I'm *hoping* that we can just move the stuff out of the kitchen and living room (open floor plan) and put it in the bedrooms.  Then while the work is being done we can stay at my parents.  Not ideal, but it could work.  The other more drastic option being thrown around is to have to move completely.  Waaaaaa!

Chronicles of Being a Single Mommy

DH has to be away for 8 weeks for training for a job.  I though it would be interesting to chronicle my adventure of doing it all on my own.  I'll try to post every day, but we all know how that works out. to post Day 1!

Trimming the Hedge

You heard me.  Trimming the hedge.  Landscaping.  Balding the beaver.  Hacking the jungle.  Cleaning under the hood.  Trimming the box. Taming the beast. Grooming the man boat. Whatever you want to call it I thought I could let you all in on a little secret.  Its called Veet.  Oh yeah I'm talking about Veeting the vajayjay!  It's the BEST product I've found so far.  The hair comes off easily with the wipe of a washcloth. It takes longer to grow in versus shaving AND it comes in softer.  No bumps, no burning, no praying you don't clip the clit. Now, I have really sensitive skin, I'm talking only using Tide Free detergent sensitive skin. But this stuff, this Veet, totally did the job with no side effects. 

Happy Veeting!!

It's Sunday and You Know What That Means....

Well yeah most people go to church too, but I'm taking about Family Supper at my Parent's house.  EVERY Sunday night we get together and have a meal together.  It keeps us connected.  My kiddo's love seeing their Grandparents, Aunt and Uncles too.  My Dad's a great cook so it's always something tasty and delicious.  Pork chops and rice are on the menu tonight.

Do you have any family traditions?

Somtimes I Feel Like Talking in French.

Parfois je me sens comme parler en français. C'est une si belle langue. Il est une autre manière de s'exprimer. Ainsi, ici je m'exprime en mon Français de niveau de lycée.  Veuillez excuser les erreurs.

I'm Now on Pinterest.

After much convincing by my pals, Mandy and Anita, I'm now on Pinterest.  So far it's been quite the time suck, but in a good way.  :)

Happy New Year!

Wow 2011 has been a year.  Some good, some bad, but that's the way life works, right?  Right.  I feel like I have accomplished a lot this year.  I got my apartment organized (now if I could just get it to stay that way), I got all that paperwork that needs to be kept, but not necessarily needed to be viewed daily organized, and I spent lots of quality time with my family.  I also met a whole group of like minded woman over at Scary Mommy. 

This year my goals are:
*Continue to lose weight.  I've been doing really good and I want to keep it up.
*Keep everything organized.  Everything has a place.
*Continue to love on my family.  They mean the world to me and there's nothing I wouldn't do for them.
*Get a job.  While I love being a SAHM, it's time to get back into the work force.
*Keep on being a great friend.  I love my friends and they love me right back.  :)
*Keep an open mind.  You never know what life's gonna throw at ya.

What are you goals?  How did 2011 treat you?
