Lately I have been tired.
homework (yes it just begun)
gas tank being almost empty
bad mirrors (yes there is such a thing especially when trying on bathing suits)
my hair cut
my house in shambles
flooring almost in, but not quite yet.
What are you tired of lately?

So today my first online class began. I am now a phoenix like the little commercial says. I have been saying for years, that I wanted to get my bachelors degree. I am enrolled, classes set, loans set, and more debt here I come.
So they say I should be done in about a 1.5 years. We'll see. I hope the time goes by quickly. So every 5 weeks, I will be chained to my computer even more, and have a new class.
I am secretly excited, but nervous too.

So this mommy got the bright idea to try to make bento boxes for the kiddos on school days. I think my imagination was bigger than my capabilities. SO anyways, I spent way too much at the Daiso store in San Diego. I mean really who spends $62.oo at a supposed dollar store?? C'mon. Well this girl did.
So far I have made 2 this week.
Here is Gianna's from today. Turkey breast with rice, carrots, cheese on the toothpick, and juice of course.

So Richie and I went out last night with out the kiddos. My momma agreed to watch the kids for the night we went to a hotel in San Diego. We stayed here.
I got to do some shopping at Nordstrom Rack, and a bought a butt load of bento stuff for the kids. I plan to jazz up their lunches. I think I can do it. Only have a few more months of lunches left.
It was nice to spend the night alone with the hubby. We had dinner at Cheese cake factory. And spent the evening in peace.
Well except the lone kid yelling at the hotel room all was well.
This is my hubby we married 10 years ago on December 20th. I was a mere child, he was the cradle robber. LOL
I love this man more today than yesterday. I am so very happy, and thankful to have him be my partner in life. He truly makes me laugh everyday.

Looking for my new flooring. I am searching the Internet high and low looking for the best price.
I am so excited to get new flooring. Who knew when I got older I would be excited about flooring? Anyways I am thinking a nice Brazilian cherry or a deep mahogany would do my house well.
My anniversary is on Sunday. Do we have plans nope. But it's 10 years married to thee best guy in the world. I am a happy chick. Maybe can slip away and go to a movie or something.
The 3 parties I have this week. Another cash for gold one. Yes it's the gift that keeps on giving with the commission I will make. Another is the ICU department party, and finally the ER party on Saturday. Man I need a sitter in the worse way.
I have to ship, and bake some time this week.
I have a few more gifts to wrap.
I need to buy my honey something for our Anniversary.
oh and I work the next 3 days in a row.
Thankfully school has ended, and I don't go back till the 7th of January.

This past Friday I had a cash for gold party. I am sure you have seen on TV all those ad's. Send us your gold we'll send you money. I was hesitant till a friend had a party in her home. She made BANK!
They come to your house with a stack of cash and a gold tester, scale etc. Then the man whips out a large stack of cash. First thing in my mind, was whoa look at all that money. I have a couple guns in the house we could jump him/rob him. Then I came to my senses and came back to reality.
I invited some friends they brought their gold as well. I made out the best with over $800 in sold gold. Plus for hosting a party you make 10% of total sales. So I made well over $1000.00 that night.
The least amount of money paid was $70.00. It was a win win for everyone. We had appetizers, drinks, and good friends.
If they happen to stroll through your neighborhood, and you have something old to sell. I highly suggest it.
Merry Christmas to me! Since I paid cash for gifts this year. That money is mine. It's going to the I need new wood floors fund!
This year was the annual Hospital Party. I went against the grain, and wore a dress I normally wouldn't wear. I did buy another one, a very classy but plain on. My friend decided with new boobies I should try something else.
So I go to her house try this dress on , and man it fit like a glove. So I wore it.
I think we clean up pretty nice. :)
Being silly. He had a few too many drinks.
A shot before we left the house in front of our tree .
And a quick pic of us.
Happy Holidays everyone. I hope you have a blessed one!

I am guilty of giving my kids Mrs.Fields Cookies while I want to shop at the mall. Those little nibblers work wonders for 2 boys who get bored shopping.
Making the same food over and over again. I really shold try new recipes but I know what works, and what I won't burn so I make it over and over.
Eating chocolate almost everyday. (And I wonder why I don't loose any weight)
Using the dish washer when I don't have a full load.
Also throwing all the clothes in to the washer and not seperating them.
Rather than trying to find the little socks my house eats, I just bought some new ones for Richie.
Listening to really bad rap music full blast when the kids aren't in the car.
Laughing a little too much at the Movie " The Sweetest Thing" reminds me of "The Hangover" but in girl version. And of course not any of those nice pictures in the credits.
And of course can't wait till the movie comes out on Tuesday. Going to buy it in blue ray for all it's glory.
Still liking Milli Vanilli. Girl you know it's true! C'mon I know you thought it was a good song too.
Anyways that's about for now. Have a great weekend!!!

Things on my mind lately.
The mountain of laundry I have to do. And my missing a cleaning lady.
Socks, why does my house eat socks of little people?
My sort of Charlie Brown tree everyday the ornaments are rearranged in new ways, thanks to the kids.
My lack of any creativity when it comes to dressing up said dress.
I want a new coat, I may have bought one at forever 21. Now I want another one .
And is it wrong that I still shop there. I am 30 this year, but refuse to shop for "mom"jeans.
My husband calling 5 times while he is suppose to be shopping for my gifts.
My anniversary coming up on the 20th. 10 years baby!
Me thinking I should be running but always having an excuse not to run.
My love of the movie Wedding Singer. Add 50 First Dates to that too.
I finally saw New Moon. I liked it, and was sort of blahed by it. I did however feel like a pedophile watching it that Jacob was smoking.
I probably thought he was too cute for my own good. My friend called me a MILF. ha ha!
The 3 Christmas parties I have coming up.
One semi formal the other jeans, and cute tops parties.
Still not knowing if I am working the Holidays. I wish my schedule was out already.

So I read a book cover to cover in one day. I have to tell you I don't know why I wanted to read this particular book. But I did. The book is not for the faint of heart. It's full of grammatical errors told by the perspective of a 16 year old girl.
It's a movie now in limited theaters. Maybe I will see it maybe I won't. I wanted to throw up in a few paragraphs. It's a hard read. Anyways here is a link to the book, and an excerpt.

Stole the banner from Tiburon.
I am thankful that I have my health. I have felt pretty crummy for the past few weeks but now I am feeling up to par. Good enough to start running again on the treadmill.
I am thankful for a job. Almost everyday I hear of someone losing a job or the unemployment rate is out of control.
For priceline, and the wicked good deal I got. $50.00 a night for a 3 1/2 star hotel. Can't beat it.
For coupons. They feed my shopping addiction. I have gotten some nifty things lately thanks to coupons.
What are you thankful for? Steal the banner I did.

This month the old hubby and I will be going out and celebrating our 10th year Anniversary.
Our anniversary date is actually in December. But with the holidays I doubt we will have the time so we will go earlier.
And no kids. Thanks mom for watching the kids.

So I am a bit of a freak. Always out for the best deal, cheapest I could find, let me look around kind of girl.
Well I was on the hunt for a silver dress. Yes we are weirdos but the department chooses a color for the Christmas party and all the girls where that particular color. Well this year it was silver.
Not being the disco loving lady, I was hard set on finding something appropriate, and not resembling a disco ball.
So I searched high and low at Fashion Valley thee best mall in all of San Diego. No luck. Unless I wanted to wear a tube top looking dress, that I would be embarrassed to show my mommy too.
So I came across a simple dress that I could butter up and make it look nice enough.
Oh and since I love the ladies of mad men. It was mad men inspired. Take a look.
Yeah me pissed off looking. My hubby was being an arse when I told him I needed a picture.
And with a belt. And yes I know I have 2 different shoes on. It's so I can get an opinion.
Thoughts. Can't beat the dress price 29.00 at forever 21. :)
So I am a bit of a freak. I have searched high and low. Even read reviews, and opinions on phones etc. Yes I am a nerd. Well I finally got a new phone. I paid a pretty penny for it. But oh it was worth it.
I think I am in love. I hold my new phone more than I hold my kids lately. I think I could marry it and I would be known as Mrs. Hero. I got the new Sprint Hero. And it's everything my little heart desired. From facebook, to managing my calenders, and email. Oh I love it so.
Yeah I am a freak so what.

So I am done I need to post a white flag outside my door saying I surrender.
I surrender to the phlegm and the coughing. The fevers, and sore throats. The body aches, and chills.
To giving Tylenol around the clock to little ones who fight and squirm. To crying and whining. I am done I surrender.
I am tired I am beat up, and I think I could sleep in my bed for a week. Only after I wash my sheets because all my hacking and coughing at night I am sure they are full of germs.
Anyways, the plague has hit our home from kid to kid. I wanna feel better NOW!
I want a nap..... yawn!

Here is link to how we celebrated ER nurses week this year. My hubby being the director still, was eager to show his nurses how much he appreciated them. They got free make up and a back pack, goodies in the bags, and raffles too for gift cards etc.
Nicholas funny. He truly is a snake charmer. He can smile and hug his way through almost anything. I blame my weakness on him being the baby.
Anyways Nicholas as we know it.
Power my butt.
Also known as powder my butt. He is one kid who requests powder on his butt every diaper change.
This morning he asked for dirget dirget dirget. I was like huh? Well turns out he wanted Yogurt.
He yells ,and fights when it's time for bed. Until you mention that you'll put on Bob the Builder DVD, and then all is right in the world ,and he'll go to bed no fuss.
He jumps off the couch like a baby evil knievel. Trying to fly as he says.
He has a better appetite than any of the other kids, and will eat everything. From sushi to chicken salad heck he'll even try salsa. Until he says hawt hawt hawt. (hot)
He runs like the wind. And I even have to wrangle him up from running in the street etc.
Anyways he is a good boy who brings me joy and laughter.
