phone blog

I am attempting to blog from my phone. Let's see if it actually works. Apparently auto-correct works on my phone... Hmm...

I am home sick from work. Again. If you know mw, you know how much I HATE being bed-bound. I wish I felt well-enough to go to work. There is a big difference in having a day off because I want one and having a day off because I'm too sick to get up. I got up and sort of bounced down the hall (off the walls) to use the bathroom and down to the kitchen for some water, and the kitchen is so messy! I just had some insight into what it might be like if I go to school full time. Will Jason be able to work full time, take care of the kids and actually keep house? I guess as long as I could study most of the time and clean one day a week? I'm sure we can make it work.

Any suggestions? Jason is good at helping with the kids so I can do chores, and he is good at helping me when I give him a list or a direct request, but he isn't good at taking initiative.

Well, I've been up for a couple hours now and I'm starting to get the sick-fever headache back, so I'm going to sleep. I hope y'all feel better than I do.

Five Question Friday a day late...

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?
Yes. My real hair color is a mousy brown with red highlights. I think. It has been red for so long through various dyes that I am not wholly sure, to be honest.

2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?
We try to plan, but its hard to do with the kids and TC being a tc. Right now she won't even talk to Jason about planning for summer until he produces proof of having taken a diabetes education course. So unless he is able to get through to UAB, summer is goign to be about the same as any other part of the year. If we can get the girls down I want to spend time in Huntsville and Birmingham on the weekends and have fun with them.

3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
I don't know... I don't cook very often. I guess I enjoy making soup or stew from scratch the most. Boiling down the chicken or turkey, making the stock, and then making it better. Yum!

4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?
Not hardly. I think thank-you  notes are outdated and lame. Tell somebody thank you, give a call, send an email... as long as I hear "thank you" in the moment of gift-giving, I'm good.

5. How did you meet your best friend?
Tisha and I were next door neighbors when we were little. I was two and she was one. We started to be friends then and our parents kept our relationship going until we were old enough to like each other enough to express wanting to be friends. We have been the best since-despite the miles and our busy lives, she is the one person I know I can go to anytime for anything. Unequivocally.

Five Question Friday

Here we go... five question Friday~

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
No, thankfully, I haven't. I DID forget to get Alex out of her car seat at one of the girls' soccer games once. But that was only for about five seconds.

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like... first-first, not first with your current significant other)
Umm... I guess that depends on how you define date. My first boyfriend, we used to go to the mall a bunch... but we didn't really do anything "date"-like.
A real "date" wasn't until later in high school, with a different boyfriend and that date was out to one of the local pizza places. Then we went for a drive. Wow... I was nervous.

3. What is your "silly" fear?
Hands down, the dentist. I'd rather give birth than go to the dentist.

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with it as it comes or run far far away?
Sometimes I cause it, when it needs to be caused, and when I don't cause it I deal with it head-on.

5. Wood floors or carpet?
Wood floors. Full stop.
