Crazy Lemonade Cravings

Ok, I don’t know what it is, but the last couple nights I have been craving, oh so badly, lemonade! Tonight at about 11 o clock, I just had to make myself a blended lemonade! I drank the whole thing, which was probably close to 20 oz and it was sooooooo good. It hit the spot. But then I wanted more. By that time it was about midnight and DH was in bed and I was trying to get baby to go to sleep. So after baby was finally in bed, about 15 min. ago, I had to settle for a plain old lemonade,, but it sure was good too!  Now I’m feeling like I want a bit more and I may have to make myself one more glass before I go to bed.  Last night I also ended up drinking a coke, which is a nono for me because cafeine doesn’t do well with babys tummy, but it was sooooooooo good(she says sheepishly)

Anyway, I don’t usually crave stuff like that very often, although I always love a good sugary drink, but craving one like that is a little strange.

So now that you think I’m a little wierd,, I think I’ll go make myself another lemonade and head off to bed :)

After Midnight? No,,Not Me!

I am definately Not still awake, blogging, with one hand, holding the sweetest   6 month old baby boy on my lap at 12:59am! Nope, not me! 

Okay, I must confess,, I am. 

Yes, it’s been a wonderfull weekend that pretty much revolved around 3 coughing, snotting, feverish kids. That includes the sweet baby who is, at this very moment, wide awake and contently sitting on my lap chewing unmercifully on his thumb.  Everyones fevers are now gone, although the coughing up of phlegm can still be heard. Hopefully tomorrow I do not get more sick and that  it will end with the current scratchy throat and slight cough.

Well, baby is now getting a little antsy and is pulling running his fingers through my hair. I think it may be time to put him to bed, and then I will definately Not stay up and work on my header image for this blog some more!

That last part may or may not be true! :)

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

After Midnight Musings,, Again

Yes, yet again, I am still awake at 1:25 in the morning. You know, wouldn’t it be great if we never had to sleep? Don’t get me wrong, I love sleeping, but sometimes it would be nice just to stay up all night while the kids sleep and just get everything that needed to be done, done. Then you could spend the day with the kids and doing things you really want to do without feeling guilty that your house is a mess.  Anyway, just a thought :)

So baby is 6 months old today,,er,, yesterday. It’s just so hard to believe. Soon he’ll be crawling and getting into everything. He is just such an adorable little darling and quite the character!  I love his little screeches he’s been doing lately. He found his voice and instead of babbling or cooing so much, he has taken to short little screams and screeches, just for the fun of it.LOL  Of course it doesn’t help that we laugh at him and then he smiles and does it again.  He absolutely LOVES daddy. When daddy walks in the room he just squirms and smiles,, it is so adorable! Daddy was the first to make him laugh, and I’ll bet you that’s what his first word will be!  He has also found out that he can actually stick his tongue out.LOL,, he’ll sit there with his tongue partially out of his mouth quite often now and it is so funny! I tried to take a picture of it tonight, but by the time I’d turned the camera on and was ready to take the picture, and then had to press the button a couple times before it finally flashed, of course he didn’t have his tongue out anymore,, go figure!

Well, good night for now. I want to sit and write some more, but I’ve got too many ideas running around in my brain and I’d have to get them separated into separate posts. So maybe tomorrow my head will be a bit more clear! I’m still trying to get the hang of this blogging business, so bear with me!

After Midnight Musings

Here I am. I know, I haven’t been keeping up with my blog very well. It’s been quite awhile, but here I am at 2am when I should be snoozing. I’ve been a bit bogged down lately. Just feeling like there’s too much to do and everyone wants something from me, with not much appreciation being given. I know, that’s life, especially for a wife/mom, but I’m sure I’m not alone.  It’s a vicious cycle,, you don’t get something done that you intended to do or wanted to do, then you feel guilty. Then you get sidetracked again, and things start piling up and now you’re really depressed and don’t feel like you can get back on top of things. Then you’ve got dh asking if he has any clean socks and kids saying “mommy can I have this, mommy can you help me with that, mommy, mommy, mommy………  That’s been my life for a long time and it’s really getting old(feeling down about all this, I mean).  I haven’t felt like I’ve had anything interesting to write about so I put off blogging for awhile, but then I feel guilty about that! Ahhhh,, make it stop! Well I’m going to really try to just sit down for a few minutes a few times a week and just type what comes to mind. I know there are interesting things that go on, I guess I just feel like noone really wants to hear about my life. But this blogging thing isn’t about what people want to hear,, it’s about giving a glimpse inside my life and writing down my feelings and sharing about the funny and not so funny things my children can do and say and maybe someone might be interested in reading these posts and maybe some of these posts might make someone laugh or cry or give encouragement.

I don’t know, I guess I just need to persevere. An artist that has painters block can’t just give up,, they have to work through it, especially if they depend on thier art for a living,, same goes for writers. And even though I don’t do this to make money, it’s something that I enjoy doing and want to do, so I must carry on! 

Well, now I must get to bed, although it is so quiet and peacefull right now, with the exception of my husband snoring..hehe… but that aside, I love this time of night. Kids are asleep, baby is asleep and I don’t have to think about any of them waking up anytime soon. 

So goodnight and sweet dreams
