Is October over yet?

Its been a pretty good October, so I don't know what I'm complaining but I'm ready for November to get here. Mainly because, well, I'm moving...on November 20th. Not too far, just a couple miles down the road to a different complex. But I can't WAIT, I am so sick and tired of my neighbors above me and their big stomping feet and loud music. BLAH!
Soooooooo we went to the fair's some pics...

Jalen and D in the big ferris wheel...Jalen is faking being scared and D is so over

The cousins clownin...

D at the petting zoo!

All in all, the boys had a GREAT time!

I let D try out a gymnastics class, and next he's gonna try out a Water Babies class. I'm kind of scouting around to see what really catches his interest. He liked the gymnastics but it really didn't keep his attention that well and he got TIRED half way through. He does love to swim (ok he's LOVES water in all its various shapes and forms!) so we'll see how that goes.

As for me, I'm doin ok. Satan has really been messing with me lately, tryin to put ideas in my head and I'm NOT HAVING IT.

OH! My cousins wife had her baby. They named her Audrey, and she is SO precious. BIG CHUBBY CHEEKS that you just GOT to get your hands on.

Well thats all for now, I'll post more pics here soon.

Random thoughts

When you think about your life, do you ever wonder what God has for you in the future? I'm sure we all do...and its been driving me crazy...I've been at Ebby for almost 6 years now, and I keep feeling like God has so much more for me than being here, but i just can't get past this huge roadblock thats keeping me from seeing it. And its frustrating!

I wonder because theres nothing I'm just GREAT at...yeah, I'm good or passable at a lot of things, but GREAT...I can't think of anything. And I think I need to figure that out first. But I have no idea where to
start. Any ideas? I'm open to suggestion!


A no biting Monday...but NOW WHAT...

So, last week was a ROUGH week for little man D, well and for mommy He had THREE red light days, which means he bit 4 times in those three days and was pushing other kids and being rough etc. BLAH...well so we had us some LONG talks this past weekend and "worked things out"...and yesterday he did not bite at ALL, did not push or anything. However we have a new problem...

He can't keep his hands out of his pants...yeah...great...allllll day yesterday from what his teacher said. I have noticed lately that at bathtime and diaper time that he tries to play with himself. I haven't been wanting to make a huge deal out of it. a) I don't want him to be ashamed of himself and b) I don't want to place undue importance on it. So I usually just move his hands away and redirect him to something else, he has NO attention span so its actually usually pretty easy to get his attention on something

But I guess right now, I need to add that to my list in talking to him about appropriate we don't have enough that we cycle through every morning before school. No biting, being nice to the other kids, listening to his teacher, etc, etc, etc...I'm
afraid that soon he's gonna bust out with "well damn momma, what CAN I do"...I can SO see him saying

The week is going pretty well so far...last night was the Search for Significance class, and we had SO much to cover that they kept us late. But it was good stuff. I've been thinking a lot about the codependency part of it, because I know I'm in at least ONE codependent relationship. Yeah, it sucks...I'm workin on it

Well its the end of the fiscal year up here at work, so things have been crazy. My coworker and I both got new computers so we spent two days getting those all set up with our software and programming stuff.

This coming weekend, my friend in Missouri is coming to DALLAS! WOOOO...she's bringing her 4 year old daughter, and we're gonna hit up the fair on Saturday...gonna be a GREAT weekend!! At the very least, it will take my mind off my the most, its gonna ROCK...cause I haven't seen either of them since March...and that was a pretty quick visit to Missouri plus I was sick with allergies half the yeah I can't WAIT.

Thats all for today...I'm out...

A fine saturday

Well, just when I thought today was gonna be a dull day, I gota phone call... The day started out with D and I just chilling...he got up around 8:15am and came in my room. I had him go shut the door to my room and let him play with his toys while I slept a little more. We got up around 10, he ate some breakfast. We goofed off a little bit...

At noon, my brother called asking us if we wanted to join him and my aunt at Northpark Mall for lunch and looking around. We were going to eat lunch at PF Changs, but instead went to McCormicks, a seafood place. D did really great there...he even tried to pay the bill!

After we ate, my aunt dragged us into Build a Bear to get one for D...she had seen a Pooh bear in the window with a pumpkin outfit on and really wanted that one! Sooooooo we got it!

That was our excitement for the day...after that we came home and chilled and then went to Walgreens around 7 to get some pictures I had uploaded to their website. Came home, ate some dinner, and D was knocked OUT...thats my baby!!!
