Are you serious?

This was a challenging week for me, not as a Mom, but as an adult.  I got into an argument with my sister over something that we never should have fought over.  We fought in the morning, and by that night (like most sisters) it was over.  I said things I shouldn't have, but that's the way I am...a fly-off-at-the-mouth type of girl!

However the person who we were fighting about, time out, here is some background info...

Someone (you know who you are if you are reading this) posted something that I didn't appreciate on their FB.  I did not want to start something with this person, so instead I called my sister to vent, and that's when we got into a heated debate/argument.  But like I said it was over by the end of the day...

The next day this person emails me and states, "This was my opinion (blah, blah, blah) You shouldn't have been mean to your sister (blah, blah, blah)  I will acknowledge you if I see you out, we are family, but we don't have to be friends (BLAH BLAH BLAH)! 

And I replied back ARE YOU SERIOUS, etc.....!?

Long story, short, I have no idea where we stand, and I stand by everything I replied back to her in my email.  This is all on her!!!  

I don't have time in my day to take a shower let alone fight with someone who feels that I am not important to her in anyway.

Family & Friends = the ones you love, and who you would do anything for, and knowing that they love you, and would do anything for you!

*I think I might be using my blog like a therapist, hope you guys don't mind!

Fall of 2010

Should be doing my job, but house crap can wait, right??

So I mailed out Cayden's preschool application today for next fall. Sad, yet needed. She is ready for school NOW, but nowhere would take her this past fall (she was only 2). I know we got into the afternoon class at Gorham Cooperative Preschool, and how do I know that we are in there even though we JUST sent out our application you ask...

Here is a "quick" story. John was supposed to mail out Cayden's application this past November... So at ballet class the other day I ask the registrar if I would hear from them soon about next year. It turns out they had not received Cayden application yet, yup!!! I then checked or bank records to see if the registration fee check had been cashed, NOPE!!! Long story short, Thank Goodness I know Theresa, she put her in the class even though they didn't have our $ or application.

John is lucky, because if she wouldn't have gotten in I would have killed him! Men, they are all the same. We are all very excited for Fall of 2010!!

Side note I love his hockey team! They are so funny, I laugh the whole time I am around them. Caitlyn & Steph (manager & assist. coach) want me to go to Rye, NY this weekend with the team. (and go out to some bars) Last time I went out to some bars I was in a bee costume, walking home from the old port, with my shoes in my hands, hammered (mind you we lived in So Po over the Casco Bay Bridge)!!!! Tempting if I didn't have kids, 8 hours on a bus with 2 little ones............We'll see...maybe.............

God help us all!

my enemy

I despise dishes. They are my enemy. And the worst part about hating dishes is, I ALWAYS have a sink almost full-FULL of dishes.

Why you ask? Because I hate emptying the dishwasher, and reloading it! I will clean, do laundry, and whatever else needs to be done, but the dishes, ergh! And I suppose it doesn't help that I have a one year old that thinks she "needs" to help me when I open the dishwasher door. It's like a cat that hears an electric can second I am by myself and the next, tah dah there she is smiling like I am giving her a big piece of yummy chocolate souffle cake from Fore Street. (sorry I was daydreaming about going out for appetizers with friends, before children)

So I am off to do dishes, maybe, or better yet I should check my FB just in case there are any important messages for me to respond to...

If you didn't know, my husband coaches the women's ice hockey team at USM. And right now our whole life revolves around hockey! I love his team, they are fun girls, who when I am around them make me feel like I am 21 again. ( I miss being 21) Anywho, I just get mad when John can't leave his frustration at the rink...

He lost last night 4-5 and was pissed...and the rest of my night went like this...

"Cayden stop crying, you wanted cereal you are eating cereal" SAID JOHN IN A SCARY YELLING VOICE. And then just more yelling and snapping over every little thing.
"I'm sorry I'm snapping at you guys, yada yada yada" (no yada, but you get my point) says John.

It is just getting old, hockey, and I have another month and a half left. And I go to the games with the girls to support him and his team, but towards the end I just feel like if I hear " We suck, I don't know what to do, I am a bad coach, (whine, whine, whine)" I think I might lose my mind!

*Positive note Taytum has been playing by herself for the last 45 minutes, and I love it!! (Cayden is at the rink with John which is where we are headed in an hour!!)

To be vampire...

So this might sound weird for some of you, but for others you will totally agree with me... I want to be a vampire. Not because I have an urge to drink blood (disgusting)! It's because people actors, authors etc. have totally made it super cool and sexy to be a vampire.

Just think, to be gorgeous, a size zero, have lots of money, power, to live forever, to see soooo many things...the trade off is you have to drink blood, whatever I could do it!!

But then again, the two little ones behind me would make me think twice...because you can't have little baby vampires, that would be way to weird!!! (heehehee)

So in theory, the idea of being a vampire is wonderful, but in the long run I would choose my family over the perks!!!

But I hope you all know vampires are NOT real, and I think I need a nap!

Lack there of

For all of you who don't know, I am a LIGHT sleeper! I wake up at every little sound, scratch, peep...ANYTHING! So I "wake up" at least 3-who knows times a night, ahhhhh, I know!

Last night was a night like the rest with a few exceptions. Taytum woke up twice for her nightly milkshakes (that's normal for us, stop judging me and the fact that my 15 1/2 month baby still does not sleep through the night, it is between me and her...and I know I'm crazy) Cayden woke up at 2:30am and wanted a cookie, what?? And then stayed awake until after 3 am, moving all around the bed! So I finally fell asleep around 3:30ish, and woke up at 4:19 am because I had a horrible dream about my sister, jeesh I think I was hyperventilating in my sleep. Back to sleep, up at 6ish, Tula scratching at our door, silly kitty who I wanted to throw outside in the snow, but didn't! Another weird/bad dream about me breaking John's Blackberry and ATT not giving me a free one to replace it....... Taytum up at 7:30 for the day!

Yes we are all in the same bed. I'm sure that doesn't help with the whole light sleeper thing, but oh well! Yes we are stupid for never putting our girls in cribs (EVER). Yes we will probably ALL be sleeping together until they are teenagers. BUT John and I both love it...most nights!!!

AND for all of you who don't know, John snores so loud that most nights I send him to Cayden's bed so I can get some sleep! And I can still hear him sometimes. I sent him to the doctor to see if they would/could do something for us. They told him to lose weight, and then come back and see us...that was over 4 years ago, thanks John!!! So that ALSO doesn't help with my sleeping problem! What to do??????

Taytum is going on day #27 (?) with the disgusting, runny, boogery, green nose! ahh!

From now until like June my kids will be sick. Yes there will be times when it looks like they are not, but trust me that means that a virus is brewing deep inside their little bodies. I feel bad wiping her nose 24/7, so I just let it run, and run, and run... I am that Mom with the boogery kid in the cart @ Target! I know, I know what you are thinking, "Shawna let's her little girls face get that disusting, I never thought I would see the day!" AND I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD EVER BE ONE OF THOSE MOMS!!! WTH happened to me??? Cayden that's what happened to me! She has turned me not only into a mother, but a mother who let's snot drip(I mean run like a faucet) from their childs nose into their mouth!!

God who have I become........................................................?

Oh yeah a Mom!!!

I am a liar

So I guess I'm a liar! My previous entry from today stated I hate naptime, it's a joke, 30 minutes max, blah blah blah.....Naptime was a success today 12 :41-2:04pm... and playing outside was a success as well, for the most part!

It's been awhile....Morning in Maine

It's been a long time since my last blog entry sorry, so here you go....

It's snowing in Maine, in January WOW! About a foot of snow on the ground already, and it's 11:20am... What are we going to do today, well play outside of course! When I lay Taytum down for her nap, Cayden and I will venture outside to "play" in the snow. T will nap for all of 30 minutes (if I'm lucky, I hate naptime, it's a joke) C and I will go outside and trudge around in the knee deep/waist deep snow for as long as she wants!

Playing with C in the snow = eating snow, trying to make a snowman, sliding down her slide from her swingset (which is soooooo fun, the heavier you are the faster you fly, if I only had the video camera on when John went down the last big snow storm... it was so funny) and then it's her crying and whining "I can't make my legs work Mama" "Come and pick me up"... Me laughing and leaving her laying there in the snow like a slug...and making secret snowballs to throw at her and her Dad when he comes out to tell me "Taytum's awake and wants you"!!

Don't get me wrong I love it!! It may sound like I don't, but I love it!!!

Oh and I have to pick up my house, because I am the ONLY one who does, but that is a blog entry for another day!
