Somethings gotta change

I'm so up and down these days. But I am having more ups than downs. Something that I'm very happy about is I feel like being creative again. If you know me this is huge for me. I love to make things anything you can be creative at. I just made some beautiful new necklaces to put on my business blog. I need to get some pics taken and also make a couple of new pairs of flips flops. Then some business cards and put some vinyl back on my car. At least I can cut out my own vinyl now since i have a cricut machine to do it. So i'm excited and I hope i can get business just using my blog. We will see i guess. That is why i'm only going to put a few things on there to see if I get any response.
I do miss exercising and have to wear my boot four more weeks. That makes me sooo sad. I miss going to the gym and have dreamed that I was taking step class. I just want to cycle really bad but i'm sure i will have to ease back into it. I have some physical therapy i'm going to have to do at home. My foot is so jacked up and feels very strange at times. My nerves are acting strange. House is getting more organized everyday. I just can't keep up with my kids right now and they know it. The boot has slowed me down and I just keep on them like i need to. So around my birthday i should be bootless! yeah!
I have got to get off soda again. My body is mush. For me excersing and eating right go hand in hand. So i've decided this is the perfect oppurtunity to get my healthy eating habits back and when i do get back to the gym i can start firming up again. So no more soda as of tomorrow. I've done it so many times so i know that i can do it.
I'm really not ready for the week. Jace's homework is killing me. and he has been having to correct some school work to. He is struggling right now in school and i know it's because of him having a horrible third grade year with a sub most of the year. He needs to stop comparing himself to others and hayley. She effortlessly gets good grades and he doesn't understand why it's harder for him. I feel bad for him. I told him to just try his best that's all he can do. and to let his teacher know if he doesn't understand. he's embarassed to ask her.
So life is getting better. slowly but it is. we have some stuff going on right now that could really bring us down. but we just stay positive and know it will all work out for the best. If you are close to me you know but i don't want to put it out there on my blog. It's a sad situation and i hope it will be over soon.
This week is busy but what week isn't. On top of everything else i have to call the dentist because instead of getting my butt off the ground and getting a staple remover i used my teeth and broke a little piece of tooth off my front tooth. It's really little but i need to get it fixed. I also get to go get my yearly check up. I have another lump in my left breast this time. I'm sure it's more fabroids (not sure if i spelled it right) but want to make sure.
wow i'm sure getting personal right now.
well here is to a good week and i hope i can stay organized, be a good mom, good wife and good to myself.

Parker couldn't be happier!

Our little Parker is so excited for preschool! He will be four years old on September first so he is more than ready. He was excited to wear his new spiderman back pack. He keeps telling me he wants to grow up like daddy so i'm sure he feels more like a big boy now going to school like his brothers and sister.
When we got to school (it's at Mrs. Shannons house) he put his backpack in his cubby then we found his name on his desk. There was playdoh on the table so he had fun playing with it. Gave me a hug and off I went. He had a great day and he can't wait to go back again. Now for me. It was bitter sweet. I was alone for the first time without having to pay for a sitter. I ran some errands really fast then ended up going to Ross and finding some really cute stuff for the house. I found a frame I liked for a family photo I finally enlarged. It was a mirror though and was gold. So I painted it and took the mirror out. I love it! I think it turned out great. I also bought a really cute se of Halloween ceramic pumkin bowls. I don't know why I love Halloween so much whenever I first see the signs of Halloween in stores my heart starts beating hard and I get so excited. I love that time of year.
I'm feeling so good right now considering broken foot and attorney stuff. I haven't felt this happy in a long time. I feel yucky from not being able to work out but I'm getting a lot of other things on track in my life. I will just have to cycle off this tummy that has reappeared dang it.

Happy Birthday Carter!!

Carter turned 7 yrs old on August 6th. I can't believe he is seven and i'm sadden to think how time is flying by with him. He is such a sweetheart. He was the best baby, toddler, and little boy. He is going through a rough spot right now with his behavior but we have has some really good days lately. He is really into music and will be taking guitar lessons when we can afford to do it. He really needs his own thing and that is what he wants to do. You should see him rock out on guitar hero. He is the best in our family, he can play on expert. He is Parkers buddy and he really misses him when he is at school. I scored on his bday gift. I found a brand new rock band for him for 85 dollars on ebay. That is what he wanted so i'm glad i found it for half price and free shipping. We celebrated at grandma connies house. Make a wish!
This year i've started to alternate bday partys. Next year he will be 8 so he will have a big party. He is enjoying 1st grade and likes his friends. He is growing more independent everyday. I love Carters smile. It is the best!
