Cleaning, cooking, and laundry..OH MY!

        It's another Manic Mommy Monday folks. Don't forget, if you want to join us go HERE.

        That totally explains my life. Though, looking at my house you'd never know it. Tried to relax with the Hubs this weekend though. We had a pretty good weekend spent around the house watching football and enjoying each other's company.

        Daniel, the little stink, has decided to start saying all sorts of things! The Hubs had been kinda worried for a long time because he hasn't really said much. Yes, he has been saying a bunch of different words for a long time. But it wasn't as much as other kids his age. But the last week he has just been going non-stop! He started saying cow, moo, cat, dog, down, Shrek, bless you, I love you, and a bunch of others I can't even think of right now. Sure, they don't come out exactly like they should. But he is getting there and I'm so proud of him.
        Gabriel is growing like a weed. I decided to try giving him some baby food randomly. He has tried peas once, oatmeal cereal w/ breast milk once or twice, carrots once, bananas a couple of times, and peach a couple of times. He absolutely loved the bananas and peaches. He was okay with the carrots but didn't like the peas and oatmeal cereal. It was quite funny because this morning he saw the Hubs sit down with a cup of applesauce and a spoon and started going crazy! He was flinging his arms and legs about and yelling at him. He is also trying to sit up on his own and roll from back to belly. When he is laying down he will strain like he is trying to pull himself up to sit up and will sit a few seconds when I do sit him up. He rolled from back to belly for the first time this morning. It took him a bit to do it, but he did it!

        I have finally decided to go back to college. I have felt this nagging need to do it in the back of my gut and mind. But I have never done it or continued doing it because I just couldn't figure out what I wanted my major to be. I have finally decided, well sort of, what I will do. I am going to go to the local college and do my basics. I'm going to try and do as many of them as I can online. This coming January I am going to submit an application to an online degree college(through the Air Force) for a scholarship. The scholarship is for a full ride to said online college for whatever degree you want for military spouses. I won't find out until June or July of next year if I get it or not. If I get the scholarship I will do their criminal justice bachelor's degree. If I don't get it, I will continue going to the local college. I still haven't quite figured out what major I would pick if that happened. My "end game" plan, so to speak, is to finish out a bachelor's degree no matter what. Once I'm done with it Daniel should be getting ready to go to kindergarten(yes, this fact makes me want to cry haha). So, I will put him in public school part time and do homeschool part time. That way he can get some interaction with other kids and be able to do the neat little science and art stuff that I just couldn't do at home. But I can still teach him other things that we believe to be important. IE faith, more history, etc. And I will put Gabriel into daycare part time. That way, while they are in school, I can go have a job. If I end up not doing that, then so be it. But at least I will have the degree finished and the option to.

        Now, to look through the fluff mail and pictures I got in today! You have an absolutely wonderful day and don't forget...Sons of Anarchy starts tomorrow night! My rear will be firmly planted in front of the TV for it =)


Now, who doesn't like coming home to a mailbox full of fluff mail and pictures? =)


  1. I love it! Can't believe how big the boys are getting already! And I know what you mean about putting Daniel in school. That thought makes me nearly cry whenever I think about it. With kids, I'd say online school is the best option, but do whatever you can. Most places are wanting to just accept people with Bachelor's degrees now because they feel it makes a "better" employee.

  2. Yeah, I hate feeling like I have to have a degree to get a job other than flipping burgers or something. I am really hoping I get the scholarship, otherwise the school is pretty expensive and is just barely covered under my husband's GI bill. But it would be so nice to get it all done online instead of having to worry about daycare or working around my husband's schedule.
