It's a fine line...

I love Coke. Coca Cola. Liquid Satan. Empty calories. It makes me happy.
I hate coke. Feeling bloated. Rotten teeth. Caffeine headache.

I love sleeping in.
I hate feeling like I am missing something, Waking to my boys loudly discussing how cool they all are.

I love ice cream.
I hate the weight that just multiplies each time I put a spoonful in my mouth.

I love living in a culdesac. Almost every one of my kids has someone to play with the minute they walk out the door.
I hate living in a culdesac...and trying to dodge bikes, cars, kids and toys when trying to drive anywhere ;) I am very afraid of hitting someone or something. And sometimes, it makes me mad.

I love summer.
I hate summer. It ends too soon.

I love being a creative soul.
I hate that before I feel like I can BE a creative soul, I have to do mundane things like housework.

I love taking pictures.
I hate that my computer with the PSE program on it is clear downstairs. :)

I love my kids.
I love my husband.
I hate when they ask me what's for dinner :)

I am sure there is more. I am procrastinating and I really have no time for that! I took pictures for my niece who graduates Monday, yesterday and need to get them edited so she will have something to pass out! I think I am not the only one who procrastinated as well, I just was asked on Monday. :) Good to know there are others like me in the world!

*photo is of one of the areas where we did pictures on the 'Snate Reebert' as Ty used to say :)

Man Rules

I have seen this before, but my sister just sent it to me again. It makes me laugh.

At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down Finally, the guys' side of the story. (I must admit, it's pretty good..) We always hear 'the rules' From the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note.. these are all numbered '1 ' ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.
1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.
1. Sunday sports: It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
1. Crying is blackmail.
1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!
1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and Void after 7 Days.
1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one
1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.
1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..
1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.
1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.
1. If it itches, it will be scratched.. We do that.
1. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing,' We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle. 1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.
1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...Really
1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or motor sports1. You have enough clothes. You have too many shoes.
1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!
1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.
Pass this to as many men as you can - to give them a laugh.
Pass this to as many women as you can - to give them a bigger laugh

I would also like to add after living with a man of some sort for nearly 13 years...
Everything is a weapon...whether it be a stick or a golf club.
Bodily functions are acceptable humor...all the time.
There are certain parts that men with it.
There will be things that make a man laugh that there is no way they can explain it to a woman.

Today is Carson's birthday. He is ten. 10. TEN. I can't believe I have two in the double digits and one of them will be a TEEN this month.
I don't feel that old.
More on the Carsman t0morrow...right now I have cakes to bake and vacuuming to do.

And a Happy May Day!!

Maybe the boys and I will do a little project after school. I love flowers and any excuse to get or give them is fine by me :)

All jumbled

So I feel like I have a lot to say, but can't get the words out.
Some of them are really tender for me and I am not sure I want to share them.
Right now I am feeling behind. Not sure why...I have a nice little list of things I need to do, butit isn't overwhelming...I hate feeling behind! Maybe it's cause I didn't get my dishes done before the kids left for school.
Maybe it's cause I was awake for an hour when Q came in after waking from a nightmare.
I have most of our sharing time planned, just need to do the gathering.
I have the grocery list done and our budget planned for the next two weeks...maybe I will even post that elusive menu.
Two words I hate, diet and budget.
One phrase I hate 'what's for dinner.'
I need to get Carson's birthday planned a little better. It's next Friday and he wants to GO SOMEWHERE which usually results in a headache for me. :) It looks like it may be the Paramount...we'll see if anything good will be playing.
My cute little four year old just came in really excited to show me he is wearing spider mans underwear...I hope he doesn't REALLY mean spider man's.
Jeff found a gift card to Edward's...we (meaning he) usually misplaces them moments after getting them, but in this case it is fine because we are going to watch Hot Hugh tonight...wait, I mean I am going on a date with my hot husband to watch a comic book guy ;)
So in closing I would like to pass on a little nugget from Q.
Yesterday we were playing his new favorite game "kerplunk" and he was rambling about something and it hit me he would not be four forever (duh, right?) so I told him I would miss him being four. He rolled his eyes (ahhhh the joys of older brothers) and said 'mom, you are just going to have to get used to it. Soon I will be five and seven and eighteen and then 27 and 49 and 71 and you will just have to watch me.'
Sweet little guy.
