♥ It wasn't me who was ready to punch a certain dentist who was working on Ian's teeth. He didn't keep asking me, "Why is he so nervous?" Ummm....maybe because you are about to pull 3 of his teeth?!? (He has some adult teeth coming in in front of his baby teeth.) I'm thinking most 10 year olds would be nervous. And why was I the one who had to suggest using laughing gas to relax him? Not thrilled with this dentist. Stupid insurance.

♥ It wasn't me who had a whole 6 hours of sleep in over 48 hours. Didn't end up in Urgent Care on Saturday night at 10. Elek didn't have a double ear infection and possible strep throat. The doctor didn't swab his throat for strep because she said the antibiotic she was putting him on for his ears would treat strep too. Thankfully he is much better now.

♥ It's not me who is currently about to lose it on my 2 eldest children. They are the messiest, laziest children on earth. It's totally not driving me mad. They expect me to do everything for them, but when I want them to do something you'd think that I was asking them to walk through fire. Sigh. This will be changing very soon, I will not be dealing with this much longer. I'm so not making a chore chart for them.

♥ It's not me who is completely over all these tornado warnings we've been having. Can someone tell me when I moved to Tornado Alley? Yesterday I didn't send everyone else during the basement while I sat upstairs on the couch watching the doppler.

What about you? What have you not been up to lately?

♥Questionare Love♥

1. When do you feel happiest? When I'm able to stay at home with my kids and Preston. I ♥ that I have summers off.

2. How do you take care of yourself? Ooh, I'm not too good about this. I rarely get enough sleep, I eat junk and don't take vitamins. I totally know that I should take better care of myself, just haven't done it yet. I have good intentions though.

3. Are you internally or externally motivated? Internally, hands down. No one tells me what to do. :)

4. What do you do for fun? Cook. Read. Thrift-store shop.

5. What intimidates you? Really loud people.

6. What is something you are proud of? My kids.

7. Finish the sentence: I never... take myself too seriously.

8. Favorite vacation spot? Tennessee or East Tawas, Mi.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 to 10) 8. Got to sleep in. Went shopping with my sister. Elek seems to be getting better. (He's had a double ear infection.)

10. Finish the sentence: If you knew me really well you'd know... I love color. I paint my nails 3-5 times a week, normally crazy colors. I still think of myself as the 19 year old who wore combat boots and black lipstick.

If you want to play along feel free! Just post the questions and answers on your own blog. It's fun, I promise

Never Spray Paint When It's Windy

Or else you will be painted more than the object that you're painting.

I'm thinking it was worth it though.

Is It Really Necessary Children...

That I had to go to the ER twice within 4 days last week?

First we made the trip on Tuesday. The little girl next door decided to throw a rock and it just happened to hit Ian in the forehead. Blood was everywhere. A little Dermabond (aka Superglue) and it's back together.

Saturday, Maddy goes to slide home during her softball game and the catcher decides that she'd rather play football instead of softball and tackles Maddy. Mad lies motionless on the ground and I realize that she's really hurt. Coach Dad (Michael)runs out there and carries her off the field. I run to the dugout and she's sobbing and holding her shoulder. I decide to take her in because someone mentions she may have broken her clavicle. An x-ray and it's determined that it's not broken just a pulled muscle and bruising.

I'm praying that we don't have to ever go back to the ER again. I'm quite tired of that place.
