Approaching April!!!

Wow can you believe April is just around the corner??? No wonder why the first of April is "FOOL's" How foolish are we to be shocked it's already April??? Have we been so overwhelmed with our day to day issues that we lose ourselves and our time. I have become a victim to this myself and I have come to realize it.

April can not be another wasteful month for me. I really need to figure out a way to do the things that I need to do to make April more productive than March!!!

Okay SOOOOO, so far my visit with my Great Aunt is going WONDERFULLY!!! She is truly remarkable. My second cuz looks just like his dad!! Tomorrow I return back to work. I also agreed to ANOTHER job (job #3) and I will talk more about it tomorrow since I am ready for bed right now and want to finish this. Ronnie played his second game tonight and won so they are 1-1 and twins' team are undefeated with a 3-0 record so far!! Other than all that I am REALLY good night!!!

March 12th 2008!!

First I would like to say Happy Birthday to my cousin Terry!! Okay so Today I was able to see my second cuz AJ and my Great Aunt Hazel!! I can't believe how big Aj is now... He is 28 and I haven't seen him since he was about 8 or so ...and I never realized there is only about 3-4 years between!!! He sems to be doing well and living in Upstate NY along with his older brother. My Great Aunt looks great....I can't believe she will be 86 in July!!! Anyway not a VERY exciting day today. Didn't find any good deals as others had found at Hallmark and Carlton Cards but I did get a nice cable knit hooded sweater for my nephew on the way (my godson too)and a nice onesie at Baby Gap for really great prices (both came to 14.99). I was also able to get a tub of licoln logs at the Goodwill store her for under $5, which anyone who buys lincoln logs knows that is a GREAT deal so I didn't make out too bad today!!! Tomorrow is Ronnie's second game and we are excited to see how it goes.

Tuesday March 11th 2008

Today is the BIG day!! My Great Aunt Hazel is arriving to Florida from Connecticut!!! My dad just picked her up at the airport in Orlando and my Second Cousin should also be arriving soon. I won't see her til tomorrow but just knowing that she is here is exciting enough!!! I haven't seen my Second Cousin since he was about 8 or 9 years old. This is going to be a GREAT week!!!

My twins played another game tonight and won the game in the last inning. So far we are undefeated!!! I hope they keep it up!!

I have decided that next week I am going to start picking a word of the week and write about my feelings of the word. I am going to choose words that others have chosen for their word of the year at MHH OR a word that "inspires" me. I want to define it as it is incorporated in my life.

Monday March 10th

Yeah!!!! We had NO rain and all three boys played baseball tonight. Both teams played at the same time on oppposite fields. So needless to say I wound up helping with Ronnie's team in the dugout. Which meant I didn't get to see my other two sons play tonight BUT I did get to see their first game and I get to see them play tomorrow night since Ronnie doesn't play tomorrow. The twins won their second game and unfortunately Ronnie lost his first game. I kind of expected that since they missed alot of practices because of the rains and their two games last week were also cancelled. So they haven't played in over a week. They'll get in the swing of things soon enough...I believe!!

Weekend Review

dang I thought I posted yesterday...guess not. Well this was my working weekend for both jobs so I know Ginger will totally understand plus we lost an hour of sleep last night for DST.....ughhh!!! I need this hour

Anyway yesterday was a busy work day but a quick clean of the church since there was an event going on I could only clean the bathrooms!!! The rains were gone but the chilly wind stayed an extra day. Oh well it's not snow and ice!!

Today I woke up early despite losing an hour of sleep for DST. I made 4 pistachio pies for my brother to bring to work tonight. I did my weekly cleaning of the church (twice on Sundays) and worked my other job from 3-9!! Man those last hours were dragging....I was sooo Then of course the drive home woke me up and it is after 11 and here I am on the computer as

The boys' have state tests this week in school so I am glad I am off from my main job til Friday. Tomorrow all my boys have baseball games so hopefully for my ldest the weather will be nice. His last two (and first 2 ) games were cancelled because of the rain. They missed out on 3 practices too with the rains. I hope they have a good game cause this team missed out on a lot of practices!!! I will also see the dentist tomorrow and I know it won't be good. I had root canal done on ne tooth years ago and they only put a temp cap on it. Well the temp cap started to fall apart and now my tooth is literally in 3 pieces but still there standing by the roots. Plus I want my two lower molars taken out ASAP. I had the top nes removed but the bottom ones need to go!! Wish me luck tomorrow!!

Friday March 7th....

Well not for nothing but it is another night of lightning and thunder along with lots of rain!!! In case none of you know, Ocala (my town) has the most lightning strikes in the WORLD!!! So when we get them with storms it is not fun!!!

After work I went to WalMart with the boys before the storm arrived and sure enough while we were about to leave the downpours and thunder started to roar. I quickly went to the self checkout to get out quickly because the other registers had lines. Anyway the kids were getting sooo excited at the self checkout that I had to calm them down and tell them they were getting in my way. In the midst of all that they grabbed all but the last bag...the ground beef for tonight's dinner....uggghhh So needless to say one of my boys suggested bacon and eggs so bacon, eggs, and toast it was!! My twins had 2 helpings of scrambled eggs which means they had 4 eggs each...I will have to put a gas mask on

March 6th and 5 more days...

NOT AGAIN!!!! My poor son's second game was cancelled also!!!! This rain always hits on his practice days and now his first two game days!!! My poor I guess he'll have to wait til Monday to play...these poor kids will be soooo out of practice by then. I am working the next three days and then off for FOUR!!! I can't wait to be off. My Great Aunt (dad's aunt) is arriving on Tuesday and I can't wait to see her. I don't think she has ever met my boys so I can't wait for them to meet her. I saw my Great Aunt less than 2 years ago at my grandmother's funeral. My boys didn't come with me then so they didn't get to meet her at that time.

5th of March 2008

Wow what a day for Hillary Clinton!! She did what all the experts thought she couldn't!!! She won Texas and Ohio plus Rhode Island last night!! I hope she goes all the way!!!

Tonight my twins had a baseball practice. The weather dropped a little with the sun but practice went well. Tomorrow I return to work for the next 4 days. I did not get much done today because the boys had a half day of school!!! I am still having trouble to get the boys to eat veggies. Not quite sure what else I can do!! I am taking it one day at a time but it is really aggravating me. I eat all kinds of veggies and this began when we lived with their father (my ex husband) because he doesn't eat veggies. I have been trying over the years and my kids would rather go to bed hungry than eat their veggies. I am going to keep at it and I might try sneaking it in their food as others have suggested BUT I can't control the amounts they consume if it is not given directly!!! Oh well I will have to work on some other solutions while I am at work tomorrow!!!

4th of March and more voting....

I clearly have voted and continue to support Hillary Clinton!!! Tonight is a challenge considering the media is calling for her to quit. But she's my girl and won't quit for the biased press. What happened to the old days when the press was unbiased!!! I am sick and tired of them cutting Hillary off any chance they get. Even at the democratic debates they would cut her off (the commentators AND Obama). I will say this something else I miss during the elections is Peter Jennings reporting, may he Rest in Peace!!!!!

March 3rd or 3-3.....hehe

I am on a Tonight was the twins first game of the season and they WON!!!! YEAH!!! Trevor had 3 hits and Travis had one hit. Which is funny because usually Travis has all the hits and Trevor doesn't have any!!! Travis' timing in his swings is off so I have to get him to the batting cages this week to work on that. My oldest son Ronnie has his first game at 7 pm tomorrow night and I look forward to that game also!!! GO BOYS!!!

The tissues continue to be needed...

Between family drama, cleaning out my grandfathers house by going through my grandmothers belongings, and Oprah's Big Give tissues have taken over my day and night. I am too emotionally exhausted to go into details!!!

March is HERE!!!!!!

How busy is your month of March???? Mine is especially busy between St. Patrick's Day, a few birthdays including mine the day before Easter, and Easter of course. But most importantly in 10 days my Great Aunt Hazel will be visiting us from CT. I believe she is about 85 or 86 years old!!! I convinced her to bring any family recipes she has with her so I can add it to our log of recipes that include my grandmother's (her sister). This is EXTREMELY exciting for me!!! I can't wait for her to get here and she will be here for 2 weeks including all the above listed fun filled events for March. So I am COMPLETELY looking forward to bringing in MARCH!!!!
