It's so wonderful to get back into reading.
Until this past year, I hadn't read a book since before Owen was born.
(he was born in 2002, yeah, that's sad)
I used to be the type to sit down and finish a book within a day, if not hours.
I LOVED to read. I loved to get lost within anothers' story.
Well, I've come back to my love.
I, of course, got drawn in to the Twilight love (obsession).
I was planning on re-reading the series, but have decided to wait until the next movie comes out.
That being said, my sister had a book for me to read.
I really enjoyed this book.
I'll spare any spoilers, but if you've read it, feel free to email me!
Now, on to my next reading selection....
I heard about this book from Dysfunctional Mom over at Putting the Fun in Dysfunctial.She seemed to get a kick out of it, so I figured I try it out!
I'm about half way through and I'm really liking it. She makes me feel so much better about not being a Super-Wife (or Mrs.Incredible for that fact).
It's so nice to get wrapped up in a book and let the stress melt away.
Cheesy, I know.
But, in my world lately, I need to be able run away without actually doing it!

A couple weeks ago, we had a some huge snowfall.
(this was before we got the negative degree weather....wonderful, I know)
Felt like showing off the pictures of the boys out playing!
And this was the wee-gremlin and the fit he threw when he came in...
Yup, those are my boys!

Yeah, well I didn't win my purse. :(
But hubby did find a new job. He has been hunting for about 10 months.
He's been miserable where he was at.
He got hired in this past week, and starts training on monday.
(think old boss was happy to get rid of him quickly)
Now the negative part.
We have to take a three dollar paycut. (the old boss was going to make him take a five dollar paycut)
There is commission and benefits, so that will be great.
I'm supposed to starts school in the summer semester.
This should definitely be an interesting year.
Hubby new job, less money, my miserable job, school, and one more item that I pray works out. It's got me kinda down today, and I'd love to share....but right now, I just can't.
Everything works out, one way or another.

My poor husband. He thinks I'm cheating on him.
Sad thing is that I am. *hangs head in shame*
But see, you don't understand. This *other* is beautiful.
Picks up after itself.
Scares the children (sadly, my favorite part).
It's my new vacuum.
Remember when I first posted about my wanted new love (here)?
Well then remember when I won (here)?
Well my beautiful new love arrived the week before Christmas.
Oh, it's so wonderful. We dance around the house, cleaning the floor as we go. (scaring the wee one...quite entertaining actually)
*sigh* Here's some wonderful new pictures...
(Please don't mind my new love, we had just finished dancing throughout the living room once the Christmas decorations were put away)
Oh, my wonderful ladies at The Secret's In The Sauce, I thank you so.

Yeah. This is an interesting topic.
I have a couple that like to come into the restaurant once in awhile. They tend to stay 2-3 hours and chat. Which is fine by me!
I love the woman. She's awesome. She's sarcastic and a smartass (like someone else you may know!) Now the guy. He's alright. He's nice and funny, but seems to believe he's in the Irish 'mob' in our area. (yeah, I know *eye roll*)
On to the uterus.
We were having a discussion about our kids. (They both have one kid each from previous relationships, but neither of them live with them.) We were talking about my lovely little monkeys when he asked me if we were planning on having anymore.
I said yes. We would love to have more!
Holy Hell. He stepped up apon his soap box and proceeded to tell me that I shouldn't have anymore kids.
1. The economy is terrible, and our jobs aren't stable enough to support another child. (yeah, I know)
2. Why would you want to bring another child into this shithole (his words) of a planet. There's not a good enough chance that your child would be able to cure cancer or anything else great. (no, I haven't hit him yet, even though I'm visualizing it..)
3. How are you going to go back to school when you have a baby at home with two other children. (seriously..don't think that's a problem you should be worrying about!)
4. Do you think it's fair to keep having kids when other couples can't even have one? (now this struck a nerve with me. I know quite a few friends who have fertility issues, and I feel terrible for them. Now he's starting to make me feel guilty for wanting to have more children)
Now through this whole preaching, he really wasn't being mean, but I wanted to knock him through the wall.
Where do you get the kahoena's to do that?!
I ended up telling him, then and there, that this was a decision that my HUSBAND AND I would be making.
Not even 5 minutes later when I was out of the bar, he walked by me. Making the comment 'I really don't think you should have anymore kids, this world is just a terrible place'.
My comment back:
"Well, the last time I checked, it's my uterus, not yours."
WTF?! Seriusly. People will never cease to amaze me.
