The Past Few Days

So what is going on today? The usual I guess. I am getting ready to start cleaning the house again. I should get it done in a few hours, and I am hoping that I do not wear myself out. I am not exactly in the best of shape anymore, so constantly working around the house just does me in. I am still trying to get rid of a few pounds since I came off of my Abilify. It was causing me to gain weight.. about 50 pounds in the last two years. Arthritis is no help either, and is triggered by my food allergies. I should watch those, but since they are not serious I tend to ignore them.

The boys are having their last day of school until April 5. They are getting two extra days off for the weekend for teacher business at school. They will enjoy that very much, and will want to play outside since it is getting warmer now. We will be in the 80's for the first time this year. The sun will be shinning and rain will not be found.

Devin really enjoys riding his bicycle that he got for Christmas. Eddie does not really like to ride it. He has taken up with Devin's Razor scooter instead. He has been on the bicycle, but did not go very far. Not sure if he likes it or not. We had went outside yesterday, but before I knew it they were back in the house. I think that they ended up getting to hot. Then again, they were tired from going to school that day.

We had taken the boys to Chuck E Cheese's a few days ago. We had spent a good 40 bucks or so for pizza and enough tokens to get about 100 tickets for each of the kids. For 30 dollars you could get a pizza and 25 tokens. The tokens were in the price of the pizza, so the menu board made your mouth drop to the floor. How expensive this is, and we see people here all the time. Luckily we went on Monday after school about 3:30 and it was empty. Talk about beating the crowds. The boys had lots of fun so it was well worth the money we had spent. When we got home that afternoon, I had checked my email and noticed that there had been a house fire in Shannon. It happened to be my husbands grandparents house. It was totally destroyed.

Well, I guess that I will be going. Have things that I need to get done. Thanks for visiting today and I will see you all soon.

Searching Again For Birthparents

I finally ended up getting some stamps (for my birthday) from my aunt, and I am debating on if I should write to my next possible match in the search for my birth parents. I am really wanting to save the 10 dollars it takes to process the paperwork for the original birth certificate, or to get a letter back saying that I have the wrong names. Then again, some say that it is not a good idea to contact the "birth parents" directly. Everyone has their own opinion I guess. As of now, I am looking for Darlene K. (Bennett) Peters, and Douglas R. Whitehead. She is living in Rosenburg, Texas, and has two sisters. From what I have learned, Douglas passed away in 2003. Well, I guess that I will keep debating on what I will do. I may just go ahead and mail at least one letter just to see what does happen.

Spring 2010

Today is the first day of Spring, and also my Uncle Bobby's birthday. Happy birthday Uncle Bobby! Hope that you have a wonderful day today! You were the lucky one this year by having the frist day of Spring on your birthday. Sometimes it is on mine which is tomorrow. Being 30? Up the hill I make my way, with the little ones taging behind me. We have had a great spring break. We really did not do much except for watching t.v., playing games, riding bikes and scooters outside. Last weekend was not a very good one thought. We had rain and a few cloudy days which made the weather a little cool to be going out to play. If it is not warm, I really do not want to go outside. I really dislike the cold weather. Spring and Fall would be my favorite months since it is neither to cold or to hot to be outside. I have been really busy cleaning the house up, or at least trying. I may be able to finish it today. We are having monthly housekeeping inspections again in April, so I really have to be on the ball about keeping it cleaned. I have a lot of trouble getting the other family members to keep their things picked up as much as possible. I am trying to get the kids to realize that they need to keep their toys to a limit, but I am not having much luck. I am really going to have to enforce the need for them to start helping around the house; even if it is just their toys that happens to be all over the floor in every room. Well, I guess that I will be going so I can get things finished up here and start working on the house...again!!

St Patrick's Day & Update

Back again after a few months. We had changed internet companies so that we could get it a little cheaper. We are having spring break this week, and we are enjoying the rest. The weather had been rainy and too cool to be playing out much. The sun just has not been out much to really warm things up to where you can stand to even be outside. The last time that we were outside, Eddie had fell from the scooter and scraped his palm up pretty good so we went in that day and have not been out since. The rain started coming quite often, then it got quite cool. I have also been working on cleaning the house. Just for once I would like to see everything done all at once instead of one room at a time while the other rooms just get dirty again. Sometimes it feel like they can get dirty on their own... I guess that it can. It is very dusty in this house anyways. The heater does not help with that situation either. I wonder sometimes if it just makes it worse. Guess that it is like a furnace that blows heat out the bottom to warm the house. It is a very annoying heater, and I still have not met one person who actually likes it. It warms the living room up too much and the rest of the rooms are cool. Guess that it could suffocate you in same room as it is in. My back did finally get better after I had hurt it two months ago, and I am glad of that. I can acually move around again without hurting from it. Well I guess that I will be going. Just wanted to let everyone know that I am around...just busy!!
