Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

how can you not laugh all day long when you have kids? one day we were in jason's car, i turned around and this is how they were wearing their hooded jackets. oh my!

being a mom is a full time job. can you believe that it takes 2 hours from the moment we leave our house to drop off the boys and then come back home?! yup. well, i did take a 30 minute detour to get an iced coffee, but still...just driving around to do things with the boys IS my full time job!

i will entitle the next chapter of my life (which will last the next 10 years) "the chaffeur."

yesterday, i got pricked at bed, bath, and beyond- like literally. i was feeling a swatch of bed sheet fabric and this huge tack jabbed me in my thumb. it screamed like a woman in labor and blood gushed out immediately. for some reason, it hurt like a mother and the pain made me soooo mad. like, why should i have to endure this pain at a store while shopping with my son?!! the manager seemed *a little* concerned (not enough to my liking), said sorry and took down my information. i thought i deserved at least a $100 gift card for my bout of histrionics! i better not get some crazy disease from what happened yesterday. BBB better get ready for a lawsuit of a lifetime if i end up getting even a slight infection or redness in the area. i better stop writing about this. it makes me mad to think about it. they should also offer something to chase for his emotional distress in seeing his mom with BLOOD coming out. hmmm.... any lawyer out there want to take on this case?!

i love the song i'm yours by jason mraz. it has a very calming affect on me, that is for sure. i hear it and i just want to sway my bod and be listening to jamaican steel drums. maybe i should have that song next to me at all times (on my phone-once i learn how to download songs onto my phone) so the NEXT TIME I GET PRICKED at a store, something will calm me down.

oh, cooking has all but stopped here in roseville. so much for susie homemaker! haha... i was sooo motivated this time around too. new kitchen, new house, time equals motivation to cook, right? well, that waned- big time. i am so in awe of people who LOVE to cook. i'm not talking about people who cook because they have to cook to feed their families. i'm talking about people who look forward to cooking, who dream about being in the kitchen, who take pride and joy in what comes out of their kitchens. i am the opposite. i'm the opposite of a foodie, for sure. i say, just eat whatevers!!! with that kind of mentality, don't you  just feel so sorry for jason and the kids. cause even when I think about it, i shed a tear for my family who deserve great, homecooked meals! but i'm so ok eating any crappy ol thing (cereal for dinner, anyone?) that it is hard for me to spend so much time in the kitchen to cook! i'm working on it though, peoples! we are all works in progresses (not a word, right?), so i'm working on it so lay off!! :)
well, just wanted to say hi and say happy friday!!! i love fridays...who doesn't, right? cause i'm looking forward to a wild crazy weekend of fun here in roseville.....NOT!

some random thoughts

1. just got back from costco. damn, ate a day's worth of calories eating all their samples...cause ya know it's hard for me to pass up anything that is free. that is why i have such big nostrils.....cause air is free! (haha, susan and christine!)

2. if jason and i are remotely being "loving" towards each other in front of the boys (like hold hands or hug), the boys will sing a song they made up, "mommy and daddy love each other! mommy and daddy love each other! kiss! kiss! smooch! smooch!" it is really cute, though we have to tell them to lower their voices when we are in public.

3. i HATE the heat here. i'm dying! but one good thing about the summer heat is that i LOVE summer nights. there is something so backwards about it being dark and 85 degrees at the same time. my favorite!!!

4. my father in law is so cute. he went to our old house to pick up some mail and called me to tell me he was crying because it felt so weird to be at our house and not have the boys run out to welcome him home. awww...old people can be so cute. :)

5. chase is currently taking some classes at my little gym because there was a good deal on groupon. however, after the groupon ends, classes are $20 an hour! is that crazy or what?! i think so. man, i i don't think children's classes should be more than $10 an hour!

6. tyler told me the other day that he goes into chase's room every night when he wakes up to use the restroom. i said, "oh really? why?" his answer? "to make sure he is there and to make sure he is breathing." awww... that was kind of cute and odd at the same time!

7. tyler is a very sensitive kind boy. something he said to me last night that made me think that he is a nice boy. i was cooking dinner and he said, "mommy, if what you are making for dinner is hard to make, i could just eat something simple." very typical tyler.

8. did i tell you that it is really hot here? ah man, tyler's soccer practices are 5:30-6:30 and it is still in the 90s. it is actually SOOO sad. i feel so bad for the children, running back and forth with their red faces in the crazy heat while the parents sit in the shade and rest. it's so sad!!! i just want to take each child in my arms, slather sunscreen all over their exposed skin, put up some sort of huge canopy to cover the whole field, or at the least, slap some huge korean visors on them!

9. i LOVE chase's laugh. it is a hearty, unwavering laugh. it's so robust, loud, and makes the people around him want to laugh too. it's one of my favorite things to hear in the whole world.

10. on tuesday, chase and i met up with jason at his work to each lunch with him. chase was acting so fidgety at the restaurant and wouldn't sit still so jason took him out of the restaurant for a little bit to give him "time out." after lunch, when we were going home, i said to chase in a teasing voice, "you got in trouble. you got in trouble." (i understand that's a weird thing for a mom to say to her son....but i am weird like that!) he looked at me straight in the eyes, shrugged his shoulders and calmly said, "i don't really care." he looked like a teenager. oh, they grow so fast.

i think that's it for today! hope all is well! i'm in a costco induced food coma. never again, i tell you. never again. costco, i'm so sorry. i feel like a traitor but i feel a wedge coming between us. something is changing between us. it's not you. it's me. i need some time away from you to figure things out.

bye, bye!

hello, hello. sorry for the lack of would think with ALL this time on my hands, i would write in here more often..geez, what's my problem?!

life is pretty quiet and slow here. we did end up signing tyler up to go to the private school here. i'm not blasting public schools by sending tyler there. heck no. there are awesome teachers in the public school system! we just didn't get so lucky this year and i wasn't "feeling it" from his teacher. i didn't want this year to be a complete waste of time (i mean, he is there about 7 hours a day!) so the decision was pretty easy to make.

even though i just wrote that life here is quiet and slow, time goes so fast! i will drop the boys off to school, come home to do a few things or run a couple of errands and it's time to pick them up again! seriously, i need to work on my time management or something!

me not so good with tech stuff...y'all know that. damn, we got cable again after 2 years of not having it and i don't even know how to change the channels on the frickin thing! seriously though, who needs over 1000 or so channels? that is just craziness. i mean, i can't even just flip through the channels, i need a "menu" next to me with the channel listings when i watch tv! i think there is a way to put "most watched" or "favorite" channels somewhere...but don't ask me how to do that!!!

speaking of, i know that there are some cool things that i could do with the radio in my car but i have no idea how to use any of it! haha... it all sounds so good when the salesman is telling you about it! "you can record a zillion of your cds in here and never need to put in your cds to listen to your music collection!" oh wow...that sound so damn neat....if only i can figure out how to do that!!

this weekend, we were in sf and got to see rich's office for the first time. pretty impressive, rich!!! it was a good thing that he showed us because i always doubt if he is *really* working or just saying he has a job. that is kind of a problem that i have. sometimes, jason will come home looking all tired after a hard day at work, i'm sure, and i think to myself, "oh snap out of it, you probably weren't in the OR today. you were probably only in clinic and half your patients probably didn't show up so you probably were on the computer all day drinking a latte." is that horrible of me to think that people don't REALLY work just because i sit around on my ass all day? i need to work on that and get an adjustment in perspective or something...because i guess people DO work. but, i still say half their day is PLAY! haha...

so i do have a to do list everyday. thought i would share what is on that list since it is right next to me on my desk right now. go to dry cleaners, color hair (YES, it does say that and that was the FIRST thing i did after i dropped off the boys!), make chicken dinner (i still need to do that and i only have 1 hour left to do it!), iron shirts (cause i told jason that i would do that this it wednesday? i still have two more days!), cut cantaloupe (omg! did i really write that on my list! haha), kaiser appt, dental appt, go over bills and papers. haha... it is 12:12 right now and i only did ONE thing on my list....colored my hair!! i'm so productive, i tell ya.

anyways, this weekend, we are going to a place i've only dreamed of going to since i was a wee little child- an apple orchard! maybe i should wait till the weather is a little cooler to make it more fitting, but no, i can't wait!!! i have no idea what to expect but i'm super excited! i'll tell you how it goes.

oh, and i would be remiss if i didn't write in here about my favorite thing in the world at the moment: gel nails! tried it for the first time last week (thanks chris for holding my hand through it) and, as jess would say, "isn't it glorious?" like, what kind of miracle is this?! nail polish that doesn't chip after one day? it is nothing short of amazing. i love it and have high hopes that i will always have nice nails from here on out! (well, let's see the process to take the polish off. by various accounts, is not fun.) but for now, i love it!!!

well, have a great hump day. as for me, i better get to ironing some shirts, making some chicken dinner, and dropping things off at the cleaners. oh the life of a mom....sounds sooo excited, doesn't it? NOT!
