i was reading an article today and came across this...
"If you're having a migraine or other severe headache for the first time ever, you'll need a full medical evaluation to be sure nothing else is going on."
now the mind blowing part, pardon the horrible pun, how is it possible that someone would have a headache for the first time ever as a 20-35 year old, i've had migraines and severe headaches for as long as i can remember.
i'd write more but the glare from the computer screen is starting to give me a headache

how often does your total cost of a purchase land on an exact dollar amount?
today we went shopping for school supplies, clothes, and groceries
first stop walmart-total 112.00
second stop JC Penny-total 13.00
third and forth not so lucky
fifth stop target-51.00
sixth stop again no such luck
50% of my purchases today were an exact dollar amount!
the love of my life says this is defiantly a "blog worthy moment' so there it is!

it is nearly three in the morning, i just woke up from a horrible dream but as i lay awake thinking about it, or trying not to think about it, i'm finding myself finding the flaws in this dream which is just more proof that it was a silly dream. twice this week i've had horrible dreams in the first one i was at the funeral of my best friend, i knew the whole time it was wrong, i mean there were some obvious flaws in the dream. none the less i woke up sad and with a strong desire to call this friend "just to say Hello"
tonight's dream took place with me and the presidents, we were walking on the side of a highway, and for some reason we decided to take the trail along the river, not too close to the river mind you, but there was a river none the less, so as we are walking there are several switch backs, we avoid any steep inclines, and dangerous parts of the trail, we get to a point where we have to walk along a very narrow pathway with it seemed like a wall on one side and the other slide was a steep dirt covered hill about 100+ feet up from the river, as we are walking along Handsome is not watching where he is going, the path is too narrow to walk two by two, something happens and both the presidents fall, and begin to slide down the hill towards the river, there is nothing to grab a hold of they are just sliding fast, i slide down the side of the the cliff as well, we all get to the river at the same time, the presidents are holding hands as they reach the water, as i reach out for them i can not grab them then Handsome let's go of Gus's hand and is gone down the river, i can't react fast enough but then i wake up before i can save them
disturbing i know, that''s why i'm awake not sleeping so as i am trying to clam down i've found several flaws with this dream first off why would i be walking along the highway with my children, then walk along the river i am pretty terrified of the river when it comes to my kids, second of all, the rive and the mountain did not match the mountain was obviously some where in northern California, the trees, the ferns, the dirt, it was not idaho. but the river was just like the one across the street from my house, deep, fast, narrow. there were many other flaws but the biggest one of all, is why if we all got to the river at the same time would i not be able to grab a hold of my children, and they never cried or thrashed or attempted to swim or get out of the water they just sank
so all reasoning has led me to believe that this dream was stupid and i should go back to sleep

little brother, hence forth known as HANDSOME, was discussing with us this morning about driving, he's been wanting to drive for a few weeks now, but there are obvious issues with him taking the wheel, first of all he's only 5, second he's a little two short, and finally well that would just be crazy but he's quite innovative and he's come up with a solution, big sister, hence forth known as GUS, will be in charge of the peddles and Handsome will do the steering because in his words, "I'm really great at the steering"

apology in advance, this is a whining post
I love my thankless job
-making breakfast-washing laundry
-picking up toys, cloths, blankets
-taking kiddos on field trips
-packing fun lunches
-being a chauffeur
-mowing the lawn
-taking out the trash
-getting classes of water
-fixing broken toys
-taking family to the movies
-cuddling at super sad moments (even if i'm being told that i'm hated at those moments)
-taking kiddos swimming
-arranging play dates
-being quick to forgive even after being hit in the face by a flying YO-YO
I could go on but i think it's out of my system now, i really am grateful for this job! i'll try not to complain again soon

today we took a road trip and played several games
1-tell me a name that starts with the letters of the alphabet, our favorite letters were K, L, N & D
2-I spy a word that rhymes with...
3-pass the story, we passed cinderella and a story about little brother and his purple car
4-family stories including the day we were born, where we first went to school, where we have lived, why our name was given to us and what it means (my name-the god of wine, the love of my life's name- prince, big sister's name means-helmet head, little brother's name means- by the river)
we had a good time and the presidents LOVED talking about themselves

i am amazed at the fact that in the summer i have no time to update by blog, but i guess when these things happen i get a little distracted
it's light longer, the sun is shining, lunch in the park, planting and protecting my garden, swimming lessons, swim team, summer reading program, the a vole war raging in my backyard, we traveled to see family in SD, little brothers 5th birthday, play dates, the love of my life decided to have a run in with the lawn mower which resulted in an ER visit and 15 stitches, i'd like to say that i'm sleeping in everyday but i'm not, however i'm proud to say that i am getting up early several days a week to go walking. i've been reading for the last 2 weeks a series called "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" a visit from family. i want to go to california so bad it's driving me crazy, working hard to help big sister with her angry moments, keeping up with little brother, picking cherries & strawberries, making freezer jam, trying really hard not to think about the first day of school...
well, that about sums it up... anyhow i'll try to be better about updating my blog but i make no promises!
