The Diva Does It All!

Tuesday, March 14, 2006


It's been 6 weeks since I saw my folks last. Six long depressing weeks. My kids are wanting to know where their "Mommy Loli & Lolo" are and they want to look at the vacation pictures whenever they remember.

I miss my Mom & Tay. My brother and sisters. The crazy places we went. The fun things we did.

2 months is not nearly long enough to make up for a 4 1-2 year absence.

I love you guys, wish I could go home every year.

The Forgetful Diva

Just venting!

My girlfriend just dropped off some goodies and it included yummy lotion and body wash. I opened it to smell it...mistake #1 and then I left it in the living room while I chatted with GF outside...mistake #2...after that I shooed the kids in the house because they were goofing off...mistake #3 And of course, you know what happened next.

DS (who's a terrific 2) opened up one of the bottles and poured it all out on the carpet. I spent the next 45 minutes sucking it up with our steam cleaner (now I know why I insisted on buying this heavy thang 5 years ago). It was sooo soapy and sudsy, I had to clean out the water at least 7 times! Oh well, at least a patch of the living room is clean.

When the kids are older, I will definitely have a house with very minimal carpet in it...same amount of mess, less hassle cleaning them up. Oh how I hate carpet!

February is Booked!

I have a love/dislike relationship with the month of February.

My birthday is on the 15th and when I was single, I hated having my birthday knowing that there was no "special someone" to spend it with.

And then I got married. On the 19th of all dates. So darling husband promised to spend each special occassion separately and not have an "all in one" celebration. I was very happy with that and 8 times out of 10 he was able to keep that promise.

By then I was just content to celebrate Valentine's Day and our Wedding Anniversary, after having so many kids I could care less about my birthday.

But there is one birthday that I can't ignore in the month of February.

My son's.

He was born early (I mean very early) morning on Valentine's Day on the only day that snowed in Texas in 2004.

And so within the span of 6 days, my family has 4 occassions to celebrate...Valentine's Day, Steven's Birthday, my Birthday and our Wedding Anniversary.

Someone give me chocolate, I'm getting a headache from all of this celebrating...LOL!!
