Spaz Attack

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

hello hello.

where does the time go? haha... jason's been gone for awhile (in the phillipines on a medical trip) and with the task of cooking not looming over my head every day (because i honestly think i cook "real" meals mostly just for him), i thought my days would be me just chillin at home with a book. strangely enough, it has been the complete opposite- even more hectic than when jason is around. i took this time to clean up, organize, donate, and of course, as you mommies never gets ALL done and you're back to square one right when you think you are at the finish line.

kali is totally potty trained. i am amazed because, to me, that was half the battle. when we are at home, she is free to roam around all of downstairs and when we are gone, she is confined to a pen. it sounds worse than it is. she is so tiny that i imagine that the pen is huge to her. :) she doesn't really shed. she doesn't really bark a lot. she is as cute as a button (are buttons cute?). she is small so i'm not really scared of her (though i am a little still). she is the ideal dog for me for these reasons. she does bring about some stress in my life though. it's another living thing that i am taking care of and i worry that something will happen to her and it will be my fault (like she will choke on something she is chewing on, for example). hopefully some of these fears will dissipate as she gets older and i'm more confident in what i am doing as a dog owner.

i miss jason, mostly at night, when the boys have gone to bed and it is so quiet and scary. i kept the hallway light on every night he was gone. during the day, i can honestly say that i have very little thinking space to even miss jason. it's rush, rush, run around, get here, get uniforms on, pack a snack, eat a snack, rush, rush, run, run. i feel like my vida loca sometimes. not in a crazy wild fun way, but in a why-do-i-do-this-to-myself sort of way.

tyler played in the most exciting basketball game last night. it was neck to neck with this one team and it got so exciting! the parents were screaming like our kids' lives depended on it. with 4 seconds left, the other team scored and won the game! poor tyler! poor team! he was so disappointed. anyways, seeing your child play a game is a million times more exciting to watch than ANY professional game in the world.

i'm suppose to plan something for us to do during the boys' spring break. jason wants to go somewhere but i am totally opposed to it. i hate planning trips, i hate going on trips, i hate spending money on trips, etc. of course, i don't tell the boys this. i keep this to myself, but i am such a homebody. i just like being at home! the last time jason and i talked about spring break, i told him that we should just stay home and have the boys enjoy the pool, but i checked the weather online right now and it will be freezing as heck so i guess we are going somewhere. where?! wah?!!!! i don't want to go anywhere that i think will be super crowded (disneyworld out), too "adult" oriented (vegas out), too educational (DC out...we will go there when they are older and can understand!). where to? don't have a clue. the ONE place that i wish i had planned earlier was a disney cruise for that week. that would have been perfect, but of course, that is all booked now. i am going to book next year spring break on a disney cruise as soon as i am able to book it. susan once told me that she thinks cruises would be perfect for someone like me (who has travelphobia) and i have to agree.

10 years of writing in this blog! i should win an award or something! who reads this thing? not many people! for those who do, i thank you! ;)

i am loving instagram way more than facebook. actually, facebook is getting annoying. can't pinpoint why, but i think it has to do with privacy settings and things like that. it annoys me for some reason. i have always been a "picture person." i love pictures! i could look at pictures over and over again. i even enjoy looking at pictures of strangers. don't judge me. i just like pictures. every time i used to visit jason's grandmother's house, i would bring out her album or old black and white pictures and go through them. i looked at them so much, his grandmother told me that she would leave the album with me once she passed on because i was the only person to show any interest in her pictures!

one reason that i love instagram is that i follow these "foodie health" type people and i LOVE seeing all the healthy foods that they eat/make during the day. it is not only inspiring, but i LOVE getting ideas for things to make in the kitchen.

speaking of health, i have been a on a health "kick" for the last month. tyler goes, "oh mom, are you being 'healthy' again." i know i go through many phases, but this is not a phase. nope, for some reason, i am really disgusted by eating crap. i am disgusted if my boys eat crap. only natural organic veggies, fruits, lean meats, and whole grains for this family! i feel better, i feel like my skin looks better, i feel like my insides are probably thanking me, and my boys will thank me later too. :) i've cut out all processed foods, dairy, soda, high sugar, high fat foods. i was never a totally "bad" eater, but i would occasionally eat "bad" stuff out of convenience. there is a healthy substitute for every "bad" thing i would ever want to eat. i won't beat myself up for going out to eat or having white rice once in awhile (dude, need to have some sushi once in awhile!) but on the whole, this is the new me from here on out! yay! here's to our health! :)

ok. gotta run. someone asked me to write a letter of rec for them and i promise i would get it to them by the end of today! go, cut and paste time! :)

happy tuesday, folks! be happy and be healthy!
