I’ll keep this brief.

I can hardly watch the news, watch anything or read anything about this world and what is going on around us.

I swear we are the only species on Earth that will deliberately hurt others just because we feel entitled to react to our irrational feelings and or beliefs.

HATE is a very powerful emotion. Get a hold of it, turn it into something positive that will not hurt others, or find out why you hate so much. Stop following and become the leader that this world seriously is crying out for and help others!

News flash: We are all human. We do make mistakes. We all want our families safe and we all feel and thrive to be happy. So why are we fighting over money, race, faith, what we like and dislike, goals in life, materials….?

A donation to a small boy (needing a kidney transplant) who’s dad donated life to our best friend.

I just found out that there is a little boy who needs a kidney transplant. I also found out that this little boy’s dad had actually donated his own bone marrow and the match was our best friend Christina years ago. If you would like to donate please let us know and we’ll send you the site where you can donate. With my first check I will be donating to their fundraiser because it’s the least and smallest gesture I can do. There will never be enough thank yous we will be able to give this family for giving our best friend a few extra years to her life.

A little bit of our vacation and then a pic of the zoo we went to on Thursday. The concert at Red Rocks we saw New Politics and Paramore, left before Fall Out Boy. The memorial was for Columbine.

Our cat never lays on our clothes. Somebody got really sad when we got book bags and sorted uniforms today. Now she’s been taking turns on laying down on the girl’s uniforms.
:( Poor baby Rose.

My meal, weight, temp log this week

I’m going to be adding to this list on what I’ve ate, weight, and temp. I’m still feeling off which I know it will take a bit to get better, but this is getting ridiculous! If I’m not better by Monday, Ben wants me to go to the doctors. :/ All of this week I’ve been nauseous, have headaches, fell extremely off and weak, and so forth. Duh because I’m dehydrated and haven’t been eating much. I’m trying it’s just I can’t bring myself to consume anything more. The smell of food and other things are not as strong now but it still gets to me where I have to cover my nose and at times go in another room.

Monday

  • 4-5 bites of a lunch meat/cheese sandwich. Four handfuls of chips at night. I can’t remember if I drank a whole bottle of water but I know I did drink a few sips of water that night. (This day in the morning is when I started to feel ill.)

Tuesday

  • 1 doughnut, 1 pulled pork sandwich with fries and 1 1/2 pickles. I didn’t finish it all. 1 bottle of water and close to 3 full glass of water. Nothing stayed in my stomach. This was the hardest day on me.
  • I can’t remember the exact temp but I did have a temp, not high but it was around 99 something.

Wednesday

  • 1 taco, 6 crackers, 1 bottle of water, and maybe 1 glass of water.
  • Temp was in the 99 degree area.

Thursday

  • 2 small travel cups of apple sauce, handful of chips and nacho dip, had possibly two handfuls of crackers, 1 bottle of water, and maybe one or two glasses of water.
  • Temp in the morning 98.8*F.
  • Tmi but I don’t care. Started my cycle lightly which is now my normal but as I have been trying to get hydrated I’m flowing harder and harder which really sucks because now I have to control my intake of iron even more so. I  can’t consume any more food than I already am.

Friday

  • 2-4 travel containers of apple sauce, two small bowls of ice cream, 2 slices of home made hamburger pizza, three of four handfuls of crackers, 2 glasses of water.
  • I checked my weight this day. I was down to 114.2 lbs a few hours later I gained six ounces. My normal weight is around 120-125. :/
  • Morning temp 98.9*F then went down during the day to my temp was the lowest, 98.1*F.

Saturday

  • 1 travel container of apple sauce and I’m slowly working on a glass of water.
  • Weight 113.6lbs
  • Temp 98.4*F

Making and racing balloon cars. Great way to get children (and ‘grown-ups’) thinking like engineers and scientists.

More info on this activity here!

Now this is something I’d actually try with the children…

We’re going to have to do this!

August 11, 2006 we were married! 
The day before the air conditioning broke in the church and was fixed one hour before our wedding began. It was also the hottest day of the year. During the rehearsal I cried out of pure happiness. Our ceremony was a traditional Catholic mass and was comfortably filled from front to back. We had beautiful music and had compliments towards our vocalists which one was also Ben&#8217;s little sister. Our reception was quite nice but I did get grouchy due to my hunger and everyone was clinging their glasses as I stuffed my face with dinner rolls. :) I do love my food. Then after dinner the party really got started. Our wedding was crashed by all of my little sister in laws friends and that was the best surprise EVER. They really helped kick off our reception. My bustle button was broken before I could even use it which made me mad just because this dress was heavy so I had to carry it around. Other than that everything was perfect. The food was amazing, our guests were outstanding, the music was so much fun, and everyone got along. We danced nonstop at our reception. It was after midnight when we were suppose to already be out of the hall when we had to start kicking people out. It was about one or two when we finally left after cleaning it all up and we retired at a little cottage where we had a random experience in itself.
The cottage resort. In the middle of the night we heard the alarm in another room go off. It was kinda spooky just because it was so dark. Then when we finally woke up we must have fell asleep to Nickelodeon because that&#8217;s what married people watch, we still do, Sponge Bob Square Pants was on. :D We ordered our breakfast and it was so horrible. lol. We had runny very under cooked eggs and raw meat practically. Oh my gosh. We just laughed at it all. By the time we got home a little after ten am, his little sister came over. We had been renovating the upstairs so we had all of our presents crammed in our basement living room, and we were so tired laying on the couch we couldn&#8217;t even get upstairs to open the door for her nor smile for her picture. We looked so awful. lol.
But life is full of adventures and so many funny memories. Even with yesterdays crazy day, I&#8217;m sure we&#8217;ll laugh at it in the future. I&#8217;m sure the girls will laugh on what they did that made us go crazy and we&#8217;ll have so many more funny moments to share with each other.
It&#8217;s been an extremely fun and entertaining 8 years of marriage and 13 years of being partners in crime with one another. I wouldn&#8217;t change one bit of it for anything. :)

Thoughts

  • Macy is doing so well. No one would even notice she has stitches. SO . MUCH. ENERGY!
  • There is a thing on my news feed saying a family gave up their adopted child because he has down syndrome. All this child has is an extra chromosome. He’s fine. I don’t understand. There are so many couples that would do anything to have a child. We’ve talked with each pregnancy what we would do with any outcome just so we have a plan. The only thing that came up with down syndrome is oh well and they’ll be treated like the rest of the kids. No biggie. There will never be a favorite in this family and we let our kids dream high and encourage them to follow those dreams and to be creative.
  • Everyone in tumblr world and facebook world had their kids paint. Is it world wide painting day? Did we miss the memo? Dang it. :/
  • I still have a few things to do around the house cleaning wise and I just feel so blah about it all.
  • Ben and I were watching SacconeJoly, again on YouTube, and Anna was saying how hard it is sometimes to deal with the negativity that people throw her way. She’s to fat, she’s to skinny, she’s ugly, she doesn’t do this right, blah, blah, blah. We don’t get putting others down. Do we sometimes get angry with others. Sure. It’s human nature. However what does that really accomplish other than hurt and possibly depleting someones confidence? He asked me when this bashing others started. We both agreed it’s when technology hit hard in the world and everyone can hide behind the screen and feel no repercussions. What a sad life one must live to put others down.
  • I made banana chocolate chip muffins for the morning. And yes. Yes they do sound as delicious as they sound. Glorious really! :D
  • Our poor cat Rose has been so sad lately. I pulled out the luggage and she’s been laying on them nonstop since I placed them upstairs. My heart is so sad for her as she can’t come on trips with us because One she hates being outside, Two she isn’t allowed in our rentals, Three we won’t be around to take care of her anyways. So our neighbors are coming over to feed, water, and give her loves. That is if she’ll eat, drink, and come out for the attention. She tends to not eat as much if the girls are not home let alone all of us gone. :(
  • Another thought, maybe the luggage is a lot more comfy for her. Maybe we should just get an old suitcase and make it a little cat tree/ table for her. Hmmmm…
  • Everyone’s babies are growing up WAY to fast. You guys are posting your babes are one month old, four months old, a year, or two. I do believe you guys are mistaken because they shouldn’t grow up this fast. I’m just sayin’.
  • I forgot to eat supper so I’m going to stuff myself with a muffin and finish the dishes. Yay for me. :)
