Tuesday Brain Potpourri

We have some barf here today. Woot - woot! I have pretty much decided that I prefer it to the I-didn't-make-it-to-the-bathroom accidents. And yes, I am serious.

I have had to fill out 463 observations of Brody. I hate them. I feel like I am betraying him.

We have decided to homeschool our oldest next year. Jesus, feel free to come back before July, which is when we will be starting.

Is is weird that I feel more nervous about flying to Honolulu than I do Miami? Not that I have a ticket to either place, just that flying over the ocean freaks me out way more than my normal paranoia of flying.

I have decided that I want to travel all summer long. I have also decided that unless we win the lottery that we don't play, this will not become a reality.

I have come to terms with the fact that I shall not be catching up on my laundry anytime ever.

A girls night out is much needed. As well as a date night.

If I carry a 3rd child, and have the opportunity to wear a swimsuit, I will wear a two piece. Because the pregnant belly is adorable to me.

I really, really like working with teens.

My sister totally mocked me by telling me that she was ordering jewelry from Sam Moon and did I want to order anything...hello, YES PLEASE but no, I am on a budget.

I don't want to talk about it...

...yet I can't seem to stop thinking about it.

how 'bout some random for a change??

It hasn't gone unnoticed that I seem to post randomly on this blog (hence the name). I wish I had more time to blog. I wish I had more access to the internet. And I wish that each time I sat down to write something here, that I didn't stare at the blank screen. I write imaginary posts in my head all the time when I am out doing life. But, I sit down at the computer and I can't think of much worthwhile to put on "paper".

So, once again, I offer you some random thoughts...

I don't think I can think of many things out there more offensive than a husband who belittles his wife's work as a mom. It really ruffles my feathers in such a way that I want to start throwing punches.

Alivia has discovered the joys of the teeter toter. She calls it the tater tot. It makes me smile every time.

The ENT told me yesterday that Koleson's ears "looked perfect". That is the first time I have ever heard those words uttered about my son. He has had tubes for about 6 weeks now and we haven't had an ear infection in about 2 weeks. Yay!

However, the dr appointments continue for us. He has been referred to a pulmonologist to figure out what's going on with the persistant wheezing, croupy cough and general green slime. I continue to see the endocrynologist and next a neurologist for my weird symptoms (probably stress related). Can I get a shout out for great health insurance?? Woot, woot!

On that note, I was just informed that we may be losing our health insurance over the next couple of months. Awesome. Everyone...to the doctor, stat! And then...no more getting sick, okay??

Alivia and I have figured out a bedtime routine that is actually working for her. I am so excited! It's been 4 1/2 years since I have been sleeping through the night consistently. And I am so ready to try it out again.

My baby is going to celebrate his first birthday in less than a month. I really don't want to talk about it. Thanks for understanding.

Life is the most up in the air that it has ever been. But, I feel more blessed each and every day. Isn't it amazing how trials can give us a perspective that we often can lose sight of during the good times??
