So its almost November and Dec 31st is my last day with my employer. I am secretly getting excited. I really would love to be home with my kids for a little bit. Even if it were just for a month or so. I hate taking them to a sitter and they are with her more than they are with me. I know that I need to work and that being a stay at home mom really isn't possible for the long term but I can live it for a little while right?!

They had a big reorganization of changes in our department starting today at work. I am really really happy about it to say the least. More to come later about all that.

I can't believe the holidays are right around the corner already. Its so funny to hear Boo talk about Christmas this year. She is all into Santa Claus and getting presents. We are probably creating a monster but its still cute. I can't wait to see her face Christmas morning when she sees all the presents under the tree. That is just the best part of it all! My husband and I don't really get eachother anything for Christmas much anymore because we spoil eachother so much throughout the year with things that we want. Guns for my husband and clothes or whatever else for me. This year my Christmas present is a 7-night cruise to the Carribean. I CAN'T WAIT!

Well gotta go for now.

Think before you Speak

If there is one thing my mama taught me it was "think before you speak" And it always amazes me what GREAT advise that was. Especially when I have those moments where I just realized that I didn't think about what just came out of my mouth and its about 1.3 seconds tooo late.

So today I was talking to a co-worker and SHE totally had one of those moments but the difference with her was...she never realized what she said was kinda..well hurtful...sorta...because it was so dumb I thought it sorta more funny than hurtful. So this is how the convo went. Well I guess I should give you a bit of background first. She is way into bodybuilding and is even in competitions. So me having a baby back about 6 months ago now I'd like to get in shape so I asked for her help. She was more than willing and gladly gave me a diet and exercise regimen to follow. AWESOME! So here's how the convo went

ME: So I went to the Dermatologist yesterday for this yucko patch I have above my eye. Its psoriasis so they gave me some cream. Also the doc thinks I have hyperthyroidism. Isn't that weird?

Co-Worker: (looks me up and down for a second) Ha don't you mean HYPOthyroidism (and a totally NOT kidding tone)

ME: No Hyperthyroidism as in I have an over active thyroid. The reason she thinks this is because I've lost 60 lbs in the last 6 months and she thinks my eyes are "wider" than normal. So I have to go get a blood test and see but I totally don't think I do because I have always had "wide" eyes and I feel completely fine.

Co-worker: Are you sure they didn't mean HYPOthyroid...because really 60 lbs when you deduct the baby's weight and swellng and all that its really not that much weight you lost. (looking me up and down again literally sizing me up)

Ok we continued on like this for a while. Her never realizing that she was pretty much calling me obese (which 15-20 lbs over my ideal weight is NOT obese)Then she's all "is your husband going to be an obsticle for you in losing weight" HUH??? What are you talking about??!! Lord lady. I think I will be avoiding her for a bit as she obviously has NO internal filter when it comes to having an intelligent conversation. I have a feeling she does not have to many close friends. But maybe so. I don't know.

Ah well I go on to tell one of my other co-workers about this silly run in this morning. One of my co-workers that happens to be a good friend. She is freakin hilarious and can spin almost anything into roll on the floor histerical. And she is so positive. Which I LOVE. But she's not that annoyingly positive person where like no matter what you say she's like "thats ok let me tell you a joke" She's the perfect combination of light-hearted but CAN be serious when you need her to be. I love ya Jen. I know that when I go to her she can always make me feel better. I hope that I have that same effect on people. I want people to think I am gonna go talk to Michelle because she just makes me feel so good. haha. Is that stupid? I try to avoid negative people and try to bring out the best in others. And if you like to talk then I will totally be your best friend because I LOVE TO TALK! But know that I am at least TRYING to think before I speak so I don't make a total ass out of myself. lol!

So we just got back from VA visiting my sister in law and we spent a couple of days at Virginia Beach. Funny how you worry about certain things going wrong and then something you totally weren't worried about goes wrong.

I was so worried that Curly would be fussy and crying in the looong car ride down and back but he did amazingly well. I got back in the back seat with them a few times to nurse him and play for a little bit and I hardly heard a peep out of him. He did well in the hotel and at my sister in laws house too. You could tell he was getting a little antsy by the end of the trip to just be home but still a pretty good baby.

Boo on the other hand was kinda rotten. She didnt want to take a nap in the car for whatever reason even though she was dog tired so a lot of the way we were dealing with a tired 3yr old which is not fun. The hotel room was a little small for her taste as well. She LOVED the beach though. And she did really well at my sister in laws (a little more room to move around helped I suppose)

We went to some yummy restaraunts and fed the seagulls. You could hold a piece of bread in your hand and they would come take it right out. Also in the mornings we saw tons of dolphins. We tried to get some pics because they were so close to the shore but still weren't able to. It was a little too chilly to swim in the ocean but we still got to get our feet wet (which is enough for me)

We got to visit with my sister in law and her little guy. We'll call him B. B will be 1 yr old in November and he is such a doll. Crawling like crazy, big brown eyes and dark hair. Actually we joke how much B looks like Boo when she was a baby. Fun times! I just wish they lived closer so our kids could grow up together. She is pregnant with her 2nd one now.

I still am not sure why I live in a state known for its pot holes and long cold winters. I love the warm beaches and ocean.
