Stolen Quiz

From Santanu...

"What kind of eyes do you have?"

You have green eyes. Green is the color of balance. Your eyes symbolize your ever need to learn. Green brings peace and harmony into our lives, as you may be a very optimistic person. At times you may be placid, lethargic, lazy, and slow, to the point of becoming moody and depressed. You may also be apathetic and have a fear rejection. Do not feel bad though, for what you may lack, you can in your ability to heal and bring hope to people. Some words to describe you: growth, fertility, harmony, healing, refreshing, peaceful, contentment, satisfaction, confidence, prosperous, hopeful, lucky, and beautiful.

It's a good quiz since this description fits me pretty well.

I did this test and came out with Eden Eyes - The Color of Water. It is freaky to me how accurate some of these tests can be!

Have A Wonderful Memorial Day

It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard. The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week. As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.

Just then an army sergeant came in and said, "Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?"

The soldier replied, "I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord."

The sergeant said, "Looks to me like you're going to play cards.."

The soldier said, "No, sir. You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country, I've decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards."

The sergeant asked in disbelief, "How will you do that?"

"You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one God.
The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments.
The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy host.
The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
The Five is for the five virgins that were ten but only five of them were glorified.
The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth.
The Seven is for the day God rested after making is Creation.
The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives - the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the earth.
The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy. He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.
The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.
The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God's first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.
The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.
The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.

There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week - 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four seasons and, each suit has thirteen cards - there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for."

The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, "Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?"

Busy, Busy

This weekend is already going by to quickly. This morning, G, Guru, Lo, and myself all helped out with my grandparents(in-law) move from a one car garaged apartment to a two car. There is still so many things for the g-parents to go through and move, but at least the big items are taken care of.

After eating lunch with them, my family went and picked up my mom and sis to go see my great grandpap at the hospital. He has been having some problems keeping his food down. We are a little worried about our 96 year old g-pa, but he looked pretty good today.

We are getting up early tomorrow to make the early church service. Afterwards, I have to make deviled eggs, green bean casserole, and chocolate graduation hats(will post pic of this soon) for 40 people. We are supposed to head over to my aunts house for a family graduation party.

On Monday, I am going to be swamped with my bro's graduation party. I have to make more chocolate graduation hats(about 300 for this party), pick up food and balloons, put up tents, set up chairs, make fruit salad(yummy, yummy), cook the baked beans, help host, etc, etc. It's going to be a busy day!

Well, I'm off to do some more work. Life is grand that way!

A Fall

Earlier tonight my mom, son, and I meet my sis for dinner. My sis usually gets to pick(for some strange reason) and tonight her pick was Applebee's. (She loves expensive sit down restaurants...gotta love her!) Anyway, my mom ended up tripping on the way to the table. She fell really hard on her bad knee and on her hand(trying to catch herself). I could tell she was in pain since she didn't immediately get up. And, I knew she was fighting back the tears. My heart went out to her as I helped her up off the floor.

She was definitely shaken by the incident and was trying to laugh it off...but her fall wasn't the worst part. The worst part was the fact that my sis couldn't stop laughing. I mean, she didn't even ask mom if she was okay. I was so concerned about the fall that I was almost in tears and then for my sister to laugh about it?!

Maybe I don't have a sense of humor. I don't know. Should I have laughed it off like it was no big deal? Is it wrong of me to think that my sis was behaving like(excuse my french) an ass?

Ahhh, the world may never know.

Blogger loelsh said...

No, I don't think you should have laughed. Besides the fact that she was hurt, I'm sure she was embarrassed as there was probably a restaurant full of people and having someone laugh at you when you are embarrassed would only serve to make you feel worse. I personally don't think it had anything to do with not having a sense of humor, but more of having some maturity. Maybe your sis was embarrassed too and laughing was her way of covering it up?

May 26, 2005 9:51 PM

Blogger Pete said...

When I worked downtown at the bank, there were two ladies who were great friends. (Michele and Teresa) One day, one of them fell and the other one laughed and laughed and never asked if the other was all right.

Their friendship went downhill after that, when the one realized the signs that the other didn't care as much as she had thought.

They can hardly stand each other now.

The way I see it, there is NO REASON not to ask if someone is all right and help, even if you are laughing the whole time. Obviously not laughing would be the preferred thing, but there is no excuse for no manners.

Just my 2 cents.

May 26, 2005 10:08 PM

Blogger Oh great One said...

My sister in law is like that. She asks if you are ok but she is laughing the whole time.

Some people laugh when they are stressed out. I used to when I got in an arguement or something like that. It wasn't cuz it was funny but because I was nervous. Could this be the deal with your sis?

Sorry. I have a habit of trying to give someone the benefit of the doubt.

I hope your mom is ok.

May 27, 2005 12:48 AM

Blogger Princess21 said...

Is your mom ok???? Poor thing! Some people are just very imature. I know she may not have realized that her laughing was not really appropriate, but come on! I laugh when I am embarrassed, but not at someone elses expense.

Blogger Trinity13 said...

As far as I could tell, my sis wasn't embarrassed, nervous, or stressed out. She was just amused. She found the incident quite funny.

I would have been okay with her laughing(a little) after making sure my mom was okay. But instead my sis would not calm down! She just kept on laughing(so hard) to the point of crying.

Mom is feeling better today, but is starting to bruise.(Thanks for asking everyone.)

Date Night

My dad called me up last week wanting to get together to see Star Wars this week. Since he works third shift, he was not able to see the movie with the rest of us. So anyway, he calls me up trying to put something together tonight for my sis, him, and myself. We decide to meet for dinner before the 7 pm showing of the movie. But here's the thing...he says, "You're paying for me, right?" and he is serious. I got the impression last week that this was supposed to be his treat. But no...I'm going out on a date with my dad and I'm paying.

Ya know what though, I don't mind. I don't have a lot of extra money, but I'm a big girl who can take care of her dad. I refuse to be like my sis and try to get every handout possible. She is always getting paid for.

So, I'm paying because my dad says that he doesn't have any money. He always tells us this and it's not true. He likes to keep his checking account balance above a certain amount($250) and when he goes even a dollar under this, he's poor.

Gotta love him!!!

Blogger Trinity13 said...

Ahhh, he was not joking. That's just the way he is. But he did "pay" for the movie with a GC that he had.

We did have a fun time. And the movie was even better the second time around. I would love to go see it one more time in the theater.

And yes, you are my favorite Jennifer!

What's Up?

Okay, my hubby and I went to the mall in downtown Columbus over the weekend. We needed to get some special candy(for my bro's graduation party) at one of their stores. We also were going to eat at a great restaurant called Spinnakers(they have yummy flower pot bread).

We got a really good parking spot and headed inside. We were surprised to come into a deserted mall. I mean, it was only 8pm and all the stores were closed...and even most of the restaurants. We talked to a Spinnakers employee and he told us that the mall was going down hill. Since it was dead so late at night, the only restaurant still open in the mall was Max & Ermas.

This used to be THE mall. What happened to it? It was closed by 7 on the weekend! Crazy!

Blogger Pete said...

City Center hasn't been THE mall in over five years. With Easton and Polaris and the other suburban upscale shopping malls, no one goes downtown anymore. As more and more people move further from downtown, it becomes more of an inconvenience to shop there. That is why the Arena District and things are such big deals, they need to have things to draw people back downtown. Corporations are leaving, stores are leaving.

Easton is the same distance for me, but it doesn't cost to park. Plus, there are more stores. I don't even know if City Center has an anchor store anymore, I know that they lost Lazarus/Macy's.

It's a shame. At least Spinnakers should move out to Easton or something so we can keep up w/ the flowerpot bread.

Act Of Service

Last night while I was at the autistic boy's house, my hubby decided to strip the bed and remake it with clean sheets. I know I should be grateful for this...but I'm not.

Here's why...when he does things like that around the house, it makes me feel worthless. It's like he is pointing out my laziness by doing a chore of mine. Making the bed is my responsibility. He has his own responsibilities at work, just as I do at home. I don't go to his work and pick up his slack. He shouldn't do the same for me.

I know he was just trying to make me happy. One of my love languages is acts of service, so in his eyes he was attempting to show me love. Unfortunately it didn't come across that way...and I don't want to hurt his feelings by telling him that what he did for me was a waste of time.

I want to appreciate his thoughtfulness. He didn't have to do it, but he wanted to. But why does his acts of service make me feel like crap?

Blogger Oh great One said...

Oh MY GOODNESS! I haven't met anyone else, besides my sister in law and my husband, that has actually read The Five Love Languages! Right on!

I'm sorry it made you feel bad just remember it was done out of love. Not because you are some sort of slacker. Love baby LOVE!

May 20, 2005 12:03 PM

Blogger Robin said...

Sounds like you are territorial about what you consider your work. Can you think of things that he could do that wouldn't make you feel like he thinks you're doing a bad job?

Normally someone whose love language is acts of service would welcome what he did. Are you sure that that is it for you?

I guess it would also depend on how he usually makes you feel about the house. If he is always complaining about it and just up and does something like this, it could be taken like "oh, I'll do it then if you won't!" rather than "I love you".

Perhaps just biting your tongue and saying "Thank you" would be a good start.

May 20, 2005 4:17 PM

Blogger Trinity13 said...

Just about everything having to do with our home is my responsibility. It's my hubby's job to go out and make money for us to job is to take care of the house(we are both responsible for our son and the cat). That's what I personally feel is part of being a sahm.

So in my eyes, if he has to do part of my job, it makes me feel lazy. He shouldn't have's not his job.

I have taken the love languages test several times. My primary and secondary languages are always switched around depending on what's going on in my life at the time. But most of the time, these two languages(acts of service and words of affirmation) go hand in hand. I love it when a person's actions back up their words. So, if my hubby would have asked me if he could remake the bed, I would have been okay with it and I would have felt loved.

As far as me biting my tongue, I haven't said one word about the bed making. I just needed a little rant on my blog. I know he sometimes reads it, but it's not like he hasn't done something like this in the past. He knows that it upsets me and I guess I will just have to get used to it.

As a really good friend I just wanted to say... Oh my Goodness!!!! You are so silly! I am not putting your feelings down, but seriously!!! :)

But in a way I kind of agree with you! A knows the things that I am ok with him doing. Like I love it when he sweeps the floors, or even put the folded laundry away. (Even though I may have to put the things in their rightful place). He knows that these are things that if he wants to help out is good to do. Like unloading the dishwasher, not loading it mind you.

K, I think we are both insaine. I know that sometimes I wish he did more to help out, since I also work a full time job outside of the home, but most of the time I like to do it as a display of my appreciation for him.

But try to be easy on G. He was just trying to help. I am not sure he meant any harm. He knows how much you do around the house, your job as you say, and wanted to pull his own wieght. I know you are just venting, so I hope that helped.

I know he was trying to help out, but he doesn't have to. He pulls his own weight by working out of the home.

The Big Night

Since I was so excited about Stars Wars finally coming out, I decided to dress up to celebrate the occasion. I parted my hair, made a cinnamon roll on each side of my head, dressed in a white princess type dress, and carried a blaster. Princess Leia I was.

I got ready at my mom's house, and she even took a few pictures of me. If I'm able to get them from her, I will do a side by side comparison of myself and the actual Princess Leia.

After dressing up, my sis and I headed over to the movie theater to meet the rest of our group. The theater wasn't very crowded...we hoped it wouldn't be since the theater isn't EVER busy! Even with a Star Wars premier, the theater only had the movie in two theaters and neither one was sold out.

I was a little disappointed by only seeing two others who dressed up...and both of them were Vaders. But, I quickly got over it as the movie started.

Over all, I really enjoyed the movie. I think there was too much CGI, but I loved all the actions scenes. This movie is my favorite out of the first three episodes...but I can't say that it is my favorite over all(6). I loved episodes 4-6 because it relied more on the story than the special effects. Although, I have a love-hate relationship with CGI Yoda. I love the puppet look, but the computerized version kicks some serious butt!!! Yoda's fight scene was my favorite part of the two and a half hour movie.

I would def recommend this movie! But beware, unlike the other 5 SW's films, it is not rated PG. It is rated PG13 because of all the violence...and Vader gore. So you might want to think twice about taking the kiddies.

Btw, life is grand with Star Wars!!!

The Day Is Here!!!

Star Wars comes out tonight!!! I can't wait!!! It's only 12 hours away!!! Can you tell that I am excited?!!!

For you amusement...found at

Why Queen Amidala is better than Princess Leia...

Amidala was elected to power, not born to it
None of Leia's outfits have feathers
Amidala never kissed her brother
Three words - No cinnamon rolls
Amidala was elected queen at fourteen, Leia was at least eighteen before she was elected to the Senate

Princess Leia is Better Than Queen Amidala...

Princess Leia doesn't need Jedi Knights to rescue her
Amidala is old enough to be her mother, oh wait...
Leia's husband never turned to the darkside
Leia never betrayed her "strongest supporter"

Blogger Princess21 said...

How fun will that be! Are you dressing up or anything? Well, I hope you enjoy your movie!!!

May 18, 2005 1:10 PM

Blogger Trinity13 said...

Yup, I have my hair parted and ready to be put into buns later...just like Leia. I will be trying on a white dress of my mom's to how much in character I look. I will also be borrowing my bro's blaster(a gun for all you none SW lovers).

It's going to be great!

May 18, 2005 3:40 PM

That is my Trin!! Well I hope you have a "blast"! Take a picture for your scrap book!

So Quiet

For the next couple of weeks, I'm going to have some quiet around here. I am finished watching the three month old(his mom is done with jury duty) and I don't have the red-head again till his g-ma goes back to New York. So it has just been me, my son, and the one year old...and I only have him three days a week.

It's been great having all this free time to myself. I'm able to spend more time online, but the problem is that I don't want to blog while online. I feel like it would be a waste of my free time. And, there are so many more interesting blogs out there to read. I would much rather read about others lives than to blog about my boring one.

I want to continue to blog, but I need a new motivation. I want my passion for blogging to come back...AND SOON!

Forrest, Forrest Gump

Recently I have not had the motivation to actually blog something original. So here is another funny that PJ sent me. Thanks girl!

The day finally arrived; Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed and Forrest approaches the Gatekeeper.

St. Peter says, "Well, Forrest, it's certainly good to see you. We have heard a lot about you. I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we've been administering an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven."

Forrest responds, "It shor is good to be here , St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever tolt me about any entrance exam. Shor hope the test ain't too hard; life was a big enough test as it was."

St. Peter goes on, "Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions. First: What two days of the week begin with the letter T? Second: How many seconds are there in a year? Third: What is God's first name?"

Forrest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter who waves him up and says, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers."

Forrest says, "Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begin with the letter "T"? Shucks, that one's easy. That'd be Today and Tomorrow.

The Saint's eyes open wide and he exclaims, "Forrest, that's not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I didn't specify, so I'll give you credit for that answer. How about the next one?" asks St. Peter. "How many seconds in a year?"

"Now that one's harder," says Forrest, "but I thunk and thunk about that a nod I guess the only answer can be twelve."

Astounded, St . Peter says, "Twelve? Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"

Forrest says "Shucks, there's gotta be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd. . ."

"Hold it, " interrupts St. Peter. "I see where you're going with this, and I see your point, though that wasn't quite what I had in mind. But I'll have to give you credit for that one, too. Let's go on with the third and final question. Can you tell me God's first name"?

"Sure" Forrest replied, "its Andy."

"Andy" exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St. Peter. "Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?"

"Shucks, that was the easiest one of all," Forrest replied. "I learnt it from the song. . "Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am his own. . ."

St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates and said: "Run Forrest, run."

What is a phone swirly?

May 15, 2005 12:24 PM

Blogger Trinity13 said...

It's the same as a regular swirly, but less messy.

Growing up, I always hated my sis being on the phone with her annoying friends. Whenever they called, I would take a portable phone and hold it over a flushing toilet.

If this wasn't enough to piss my sister off, I would then yell, "Sis, how many times have I told you to stop using the phone while on the toilet!".

Ah, good times. Good times.

Star Wars, Yeah Baby Yeah!

I am getting into a major Stars Wars mood! I have even changed my trivia to a Stars Wars theme. I can't believe the new movie is less than a week away.

Since I haven't done one in a while, here is a quiz for ya...and a Star Wars one at that! Have fun!

Princess Leia!

You Are Princess Leia!

Strong, ambitious and really weird hairstyles make
you who you are. Always the responsible one,
but you need to let loose sometime! Toss away
the steel bathing suit and go out and get that
scruffy looking nerf herder that hangs at the
local wretched hive of a bar, sure he has a
really beat up car, but at least he's taller
than your brother!

Which Star Wars Character Are You?

What's Up?

Recently my son has been getting scared while watching his favorite movies and shows. I'm not sure what has started this. One second he is sitting watching the boob tube and the next he is screaming and crying for me to pick him up. He tells me the the show is too scary. He even did this during the Backyardigans this morning.

What is up with this? Is it just a phase. Are there any other parents out in blogworld that have also gone through this with their three year old?

Blogger Pete said...

It wasn't quite like that, but I remember when EE used to come running in to a room going "I cay-ood, I cay-ood" and we would say why and she would say "Mamaw Papaw Waypoo".

That was at two, I think. The grandparents in question were never around when it happened, and we have no idea WHY it happened or WHY it stopped.

New Little One

The family went up to the hospital last night to pick up the red-head and to see his new baby brother. I got to hold the little bundle of joy(and drink in his sweet baby smell)! He is very cute and he looks just like his big brother. He also has a head of red!!! It's sooo very adorable!

So anyway, we brought home the r-h for one more sleep over. He was picked up today after his mom and bro were discharged from the hospital. I made sure that the family was going to be taken care far as meals are concerned. I made them pot roast with potatoes and carrots with monkey bread and vanilla ice cream for dessert. I also sent with them a few frozen pizzas (so that their meals would be taken care of till the r-h's grandma gets into town) and a few new baby outfits.

I hope I did enough.

Blogger G said...

Sounds like more than enough. You're so good!

So did you make an extra batch of monkey bread for the house? Hmmm?

My Mother's Day

Over all, I enjoyed my Mother's Day, even with an extra little one. The red-head was dropped off at 7:30 and stayed with us all day(since his mom was schedule to have her baby).

I had a hard time picking out my outfit for the day. Everything I have is either too big or it shows off my belly fat. So I decided on a pair of pants that shows off my fat with a shirt and jacket that were both too big. It worked.

The four of us headed off to my parents church. I felt very uneasy leaving my newly potty trained son in a class of 10 other kids. Because of this, my hubby and I didn't sit with my mom, but instead we sat at the back of the church. That way my hubby could go check on the boy during the service.

The boy made it through with dry pants(thank the Lord!) and then the family(my mom, dad, sis, bro, hubby, son, r-h, and I) went to the Grand Host East for lunch. You could only get in this place with reservations and it was a bit pricey...but it's what my mom wanted.

The food was really good and it was all served buffet style. They had a breakfast bar, meat table, make your own omelet section, and a dessert table. I didn't eat much of the breakfast food, but I did have some fruit, lemon poppy bread, mashed potatoes, some chicken, prime rib, and an omelet. Then I finished off with some very yummy mint chocolate pie(which I am going to try to make in the near future).

After eating, it was gift time. My hubby and boy got me two Carpenter's CD's. I just adore this group! My parents got me scrapbooking supplies, and my sis gave my three yellow roses. I loved it all!

We went to my parents house right after eating(and taking my son to go potty). The boys got to play for a little bit before it was time to head off to my hubby's grandma's house. We got her a little something for Mother's Day and we thought it would be nice to spend some time with her and granddad.

We ended up staying for a few hours and my hubby was put to work.(but she gave me this really nice coffee container with coffee mix inside). He took down and hung up several things for the wall. We didn't get home till after 7.

My brother called my up around 7:15 wanting to take me out to the movies! It was are own little date with him paying my way to see Kingdom of Heaven-good movie, but too much talk, not enough action.

So, over all it was a good, but long day.

Blogger Oh great One said...

Sounds busy! I'm glad you had such a great day.

Big Boy!

Since my family didn't have any plans for last Saturday, it was decided that my hubby needed to again work on potty training the boy. We have tried a few times in the past couple months with no success. I think my son just needed a little more time.

Well, this Saturday went by with only three little pee accidents...and all within a two hour period. Besides that, my son earned himself 5 pee in the potty reward stickers! We were so proud of him.

Yesterday my son went all day without any accidents! He has 6 stickers to prove it. He even went potty in a restaurant bathroom. I bought him one of those special seat covers for little bums. It's really cool! It folds up and fits in the diaper bag. My son likes it since SpongeBob is all over it.

Little Leroy came into the kitchen where his mother was making dinner. His birthday was coming up and he thought this was a good time to tell his mother what he wanted. "Mom, I want a bike for my birthday."

Little Leroy was a bit of a troublemaker. He had gotten into trouble at school and at home. Leroy's mother asked him if he thought he deserved to get a bike for his birthday. Little Leroy, of course, thought he did. Leroy's mother, being a Christian woman, wanted Leroy to reflect on his behavior over the last year. "Go to your room, Leroy, and think about how you have behaved this year. Then write a letter to God and tell him why you deserve a bike for your birthday."

Little Leroy stomped up the steps to his room and sat down to write God a letter.

Letter 1
Dear God,
I have been a very good boy this year and I would like a bike for my birthday. I want a red one.
Your friend, Leroy

Leroy knew that wasn't true. He had not been a very good boy this year so he tore up the letter and started over.

Letter 2
Dear God,
I have been an "OK" boy this year. I still would really like a bike for my birthday.

Leroy knew he could not send this letter to God either. So he wrote a third letter.

Letter 3
I know I haven't been a good boy this year. I am very sorry. I will be a good boy if you send me a bike for my birthday. Please!
Thank you, Leroy

Leroy knew, even if it was true, this letter was not going to get him a bike. By now Leroy was very upset. He went downstairs and told his mom that he wanted to go to church. Leroy's mother thought her plan had worked as Leroy looked very sad. "Just be home in time for dinner," Leroy's mother told him. Leroy walked down the street to the church on the corner. Little Leroy went into the church and up to the altar. He looked around to see if anyone was there. Leroy bent down and picked up a statue of the Virgin Mary.

He slipped it under his shirt and ran out of the church, down the street, into the house, and up to his room and sat down with a piece of paper and a pen. Leroy began to write his letter to God.

Letter 4

It's Time

I've got the red-head tomorrow at 7:30. His mom is being induced on Mother's Day at 8 am. She told me that her doctor was on call tomorrow, so that' why she has to go in on a holiday.

She's been full term for a few weeks now. It's looks like she has a basketball under her shirt. She's all baby, but she looks really good.

I hope everything goes well for her tomorrow. Please send out a prayer for the new little boy that should be here in no time. Thanks.

2 Weeks Away!!!

That's right!!! Star Wars is only 2 weeks away!

Since there are two theaters within 5 miles of my house, it was decided that we should get tickets for the cheaper(and more central) theater. Because the place isn't ever busy, the box office worker usually tears the tickets for you and tells you what theater your movie is in. That way they can save money buy not having any ushers work.

Well, last night I went to this theater to buy 9 tickets for the 12:01 am showing of Star Wars. The box office worker printed out my tickets after I paid him. Then he proceeded to rip them all in half like I was seeing the movie that night!!! What a nerf herder! He immediately apologized and told me to just keep all the tickets pieces together. What a mess!

I got all the tickets taped up last night, but they just don't look the same. I hope we don't have any problems with them on premier night. But I guess life is grand that way!

Last Weigh In

I know this is a late post, but I have been a busy girl! But, I'm happy to report that it's over! The weight competition is over!

After a four month challenge my weight on Sunday was at 170! I lost a total of 45 pounds in 4 months. Of course I gained a few back all ready from celebrating(I made cookies for the first time this year), but that's okay. Know why? Because I bought my first ever size 8!!! I had a $10 off coupon for JCPenny, so I went and looked at their jean shorts. I found a pair of 8's on sale and tried them on. They fit! They're not to tight and I love the color. Ahh, I was so happy with myself. Especially since I got them for a total of $5(reg $26, on sale for $14.99, $10 off coupon).

Life is grand in a size 8!!!

How did the rest of you do?

Well, I of course, never made it to my 40 lb goal. I was down 35. I didn't expect to make 40 though, since I gave up even trying about a month ago. I just need to accept that I am and always will be fat.

New News

I just found out this week that the one year old's mother is pregnant. She is due in December. And the red-heads mom is about to pop any day now.

On the one hand, I am so happy for these families. The one year old's dad has some missing equipment, so it's a miracle that they are now expecting their second.

But, I feel like I should be the one having the baby. It's like they ditched in the baby line and I am left wanting.

I'm such a terrible person. All I can think about is myself and my wants. Why can't I be happy without my heart feeling so heavy?

Trinity, you are a totally normal person who at once feels happy for the fortune of others and sad because it wasn't yours. Don't beat yourself up because you are sad. Admitting the truth about how you feel is the only way to deal with it. I'm very sorry for your sadness. ((((hugs))))

It is understandable. My husband and I tried for 5 years to have our second child. Meanwhile my best friend and my sister in law came up pregnant. I was happy for them but at the same time I didn't feel it was fair. I don't know exactly what your situation is, but just know you are not a bad person for feeling these feelings.

If I Could Be...

I was tagged by Robin to do this neat little game. I have to select at least five different occupations from the list below. Then I am supposed to finish each phase with what I would do as a member of the profession.

After I am done, I get to tag three other people to do the same.

If I could be a doctor...
If I could be a painter...
If I could be a gardener...
If I could be a missionary...
If I could be a chef...I would work in a bakery making beautiful wedding cakes. I just love desserts!
If I could be an architect...
If I could be a linguist...
If I could be a psychologist...
If I could be a librarian...
If I could be an athlete...
If I could be a lawyer...
If I could be an innkeeper...I would own a large bed and breakfast somewhere out in the country. I would be making money by doing something I love...taking care of people. I also love to cook, so I would have a great time preparing breakfast for all the guests.

Great answers! If you were an innkeeper, I would come stay at your inn and you could cook me all kinds of delicious foods and I would eat them ALL! HAHA! The ice cream one made me laugh out loud! That's my weakness too! Thanks for playing!

I hope I can still be able to blog this week and next. Not only am I watching my own three year old, the red-headed two year old, and the cranky one year old, but I now have a 3 month old in my care. It's going to be a busy two weeks. The 3 month old's mom was called to jury duty, so this is the first time she has left him with anybody.

It's so weird taking care of an infant again. My hubby had to get out the bouncer seat and the swing that's been in storage for over a year. The little baby seems to like it here. There is so much to see. He loves looking at the other boys. And it's good for the red-head. His mommy is due anytime with her second, so he needs to get used to having a little around.

Well, I'm off to feed the baby. This should be a lot of fun! Really!

Life is grand with four boys under three.

Sounds like you should have an interesting 2 weeks. I don't know how those mommies with that many kids in such a small time frame do it all the time. At least you get to send 3 of them home in the evenings, huh? I'll tell you what, I don't envy those poor mommies in the slightest. I have a friend (you know who) who has this kind of situation on her hands and I can see that her kids don't get the individual attention they need and deserve because she always has her hands full with a baby. Her older kids are still very young themselves and require time and attention that one person simply cannot give all at one time. Sorry, I just turned this into a bit of a rant. Didn't mean to.

10 Things I Love About Me

-I'm a penny pincher. I only buy things on sale.

-I have very muscular legs. I get them by jumping on the trampoline and holding my fat butt up all day.

-I am very organized...most of the time. Of course I have to be because of the small(but comfortable) house my family is living in.

-I have the ability to learn new things quickly. I think my next task to master will be either knitting or cake decorating.

-I have freckles. I have always had them and I love them!

-I can type. I know that doesn't seem like much, but it tends to come in handy(especially as I am typing this up...heehee).

-I'm logical. I think I'm part Vulcan.

-I'm a good listener. Any time, anyplace...if you need to talk to someone, I am here.

-I don't require much sleep. Don't get me wrong, I love to nap and sleep. It's just that I can get by with only a few hours of resting.

-I love that I am committed to serving my family. I would do anything for them. From doing the dishes to mowing the grass to giving my life for them...nothing is to big or small for my hubby or my son.
