What My Life Looks Like Now

Me and My Girls

C's usually doing something crazy while D is constantly looking for food:
Unless of course, her big sister is bothering her... then she's just looking annoyed.

Thank goodness I blog....

T came home (super late) yesterday from work, and told me that we had gotten a speeding ticket. Now, getting speeding tickets here is so much different from in the states, except that they obviously involve people speeding. Instead of being pulled over by a sneaky cop hiding on the side of the highway and instantly knowing you're screwed, here, they have little cameras set up on the guardrails of the highway (only when they need funding, really.) And they always target Americans, because unlike Italians who laugh off tickets, we have to pay before we can leave the island. The camera takes a picture of your car and its license plate and then later, you find out that you received a ticket. How much later?

Our ticket was for May 5th, 2008.


T said, "It's you."

"Please," I answered, "I never speed. Plus, I was already pregnant with D, so I definitely wouldn't have been speeding." But, the chance of it being me was driving me crazy. I am constantly getting on to T to slow down. (Granted, you can never really tell what exactly the speed limit is, but I've heard 60 mph is our limit.) If the ticket was his, oh well, I wouldn't care. I've warned him a million times, if he wants to spend his money on an (expensive) speeding ticket, then he can just go ahead. But if it was me.... I knew he wouldn't let me live it down.

So, I found my planner/calendar. and flipped back to May 08. Nothing was written in, I didn't start using it until July. grrr.... I went and found a MOMS Club calendar from May 08... no event, so I could have possibly been at base.... Then I thought, "I'll check my blog and see what I wrote. Maybe we had an appointment to go to."

May 5, 2008:
"We bought a kite for C today, and took her to the park to fly it as soon as we got home from base."
Ha! So, if we were all at base, then T was driving. He always drives when we're together, because apparently I drive too slow.



This was in my inbox today from a parenting email. Made me laugh, so I thought I'd share. =)

When I finally get the chance

to blog about one of the many things I've been meaning to blog...

my brain turns to mush.

Don't know what that's all about.

Maybe it's this rainy weather.

I'll blame it on that.

Stolen Pic of J

I stole this from my sister's friend's myspace. This is my nephew, J. I can't wait to meet him. Looks like he is such a character. =)

just some thoughts

the baby is sleeping, so I'll blog, since my blog posts have been few and far between.

this morning I woke up feeling like you know what. It's a head cold or something. =(

I get so annoyed at C saying, "Mommy, I'm staaarving." no you're not. You have no idea. And besides, you just ate less than an hour ago.

Most of my kid free time is being spent sewing diapers for D and my nephew, J, and C's bear.

Or at workout. I've been going to a cardio class 2x a week. Loving that. I'm going to start weights soon.

I gained 30 lbs with D. I have 10 left to lose.

Our next Bible study has started. We're reading Having a Mary Spirit. Already love this book.

Speaking of Amazon... I'm so mad. My last box came in with a craft book and four patterns I ordered, completely trashed and soaked. The book was folded to fit into the box that was too small, and it and the patterns are useless. They better refund my money.

I have had so many things to blog about and no time to do it. =) Here in Sig. that's probably a good thing I'm staying so busy.

It's been raining all day....

fitting the mood.

I just found out that my great grandma passed away last night. It was expected. She lived a long life and we were blessed to have her for so many years.

I wish I lived closer. Wish I could have visited more than two or three times in the past 3 years.

Wish I could be there to support my grandma and mom.

But it is not in God's plan. I will be home soon enough, and I know He will take care of everyone and everything.

I got it!

If you've been reading my blog for a while... (uhh family, LOL) remember that book I wanted when we first got here? Persephone and the Pomegranate? I found it! Finally, after two years, the price went down on Amazon. And I found a non Ex-Library copy! Like new! AHH!! I'm so excited. The best part? I didn't pay $88.... only $20. =D I'm super excited. I can't wait for it to get here.
