Look! I'm learning things.

Yippee!!! I figured out how rearrange my pictures and such. I'm so proud of me.

This first picture can best be described with the words "I just wanted to take a shower." I went to take a shower. The kids were playing this water. Nana told them to put their swimsuits on. Jade couldn't find Caibo's, so she let him use one of hers.

These two pictures are of Jerry's dad (the kids call him Grandpa Paul) and the kids. I realized I don't have many pictures of him with the kids, so I took a bunch at Jason's wedding.

These are Jason and Becky's kids (McCrae, Makayla, and Austin) in the limo. The got to ride in the limo all the way around the block.

Lastly, here are the bride and groom, as if it isn't totally obvious. Congratulations Jason and Becky!!

I'm so excited

Ok. I'll try to keep this as short as I can while still making sense. A while back, I was blog stalking. I noticed the little list of blogs Caralee visits and I noticed someone I know, she knew somebody else I know, and several blogs later I found a list of digital scrapbooking sites. I had no idea what digital scrapbooking was other than that Caralee does it and it involves photoshop, so I checked it out. Now I am horribly addicted, and why not? Now, I can scrapbook without my children spreading things all over my house. One of the sites I found was digifree which I am working on not stalking quite as much as I used to. Anyways through digifree I found digitalArts-cafe and one of their designers Rachael Hudnall was looking for members for her creative team. On a whim, I applied thinking I wouldn't get picked (I've only been doing this for like 2 months), but I did get picked. I am so excited. So, Look I made something. Well, I guess you looked before. One day I'll figure out how to get the pictures after the words.

We were driving around running some errands today, when Jade made me laugh. The conversation went like this.
"Mom! I have a question for you."
"Ok. what's your question?"
"You know those things that butterflies have that look like lines with dots on the end. What are those called."
This is the point where I could tell she was thinking deeply.
"Do all butterflies have Hannah Montannas?"
That was the funniest thing I have heard come out of her mouth in a long time.

Mom! Guess what!!

Caibo's new favorite thing is to come climb up on my lap and then say, "Mom! Guess what!!" He only says it like a million times a day, and if I'm not paying attention he'll keep saying it until I say, "What?" After that, I never know what he is going to say. So far my favorites have been "I'm squidward!" (He scrunches up his face and tries to make his voice sound like squidward. I'm going to try to get a video of it.) "It's my money and I want it now!" and "I got two tickets!" (referring to the $2 my sister sent him for his birthday). Yeah, my Caibo makes me laugh.

A short chemistry lesson

Well, it has been another wild and crazy day. My kitchen is now spf 50 thanks to Caibo and the sunscreen spray.
I also had yet another opportunity to call poison control. I was looking for Caibo's shoes so we could leave when he started screaming. I went into the bathroom and he had dumped toilet bowl cleaner all over the bathroom floor. Thankfully, more got on the floor than on him. I quickly stripped him down, threw him in a bath and began to read the label on the bottle. The label said to call poison control, so I did. It still surprises me that they always seem so shocked I call them so quickly after the incident.
Anyways, this is where the chemistry lesson comes in. Toilet bowl cleaner contains Hydrogen Chloride (aka Hydrochloric Acid) my bottle was 9.5% which is strong enough to cause a pretty severe chemical burn. Fortunately, the hydrochloric acid doesn't eat down into the skin like some of the bases do. The man I talked to said some of the cleaners are acids like mine was and some are bases.
Caibo is just fine. I caught it quick enough that it was washed off before it could do much harm. He had a red mark about the size of a quarter, but that was all. Poison control will be calling me back in the morning to make sure he doesn't blister over night, but hopefully he'll be ok.

This is me whining loudly

Well, I have finally joined the gym again. As part of the whole welcome package they gave me a free 30 minute session with a personal trainer (mostly, so they could try to sell me a personal trainer. BTW it didn't work). I had my 30 minutes today. As a result, I have officially decided that personal trainers are evil. We worked out until I told him I had to stop because I felt like I was going to puke. Thank goodness I didn't!!! Anyways, now I hurt. It hurts to walk, it hurts to drive, it hurts to type, it hurts to laugh, I just hurt. And if that wasn't enough everything I needed at Walmart was on the top shelf. That must have been pretty comical to see. Anyways, this is me whining loudly and I'm done whining.......for now.

My head is spinning

Ok, so I did this blog thing because I have been wanting to for a while. I want to make it cute and stuff, but holy cow! I'm a little overwhelmed. Please just hold on and I will get this to a state of cuteness someday soon I hope.
