I'm still alive!

Wow it's been awhile since I posted. I am still alive, don't worry:) To all of those who commented and left advice for my grumpy children, THANKS! It was just one of those days. I'm glad to update that the children are still grumpy, but i've come to terms with it for the moment! We are truckin along. As for the reason for not posting I've been sewing (attempting anyway) I know, getting all domestic! I made my children some pajamas for Christmas and they turned out half way decent. I'll post pictures later.

I also have been busy reading. With all the hype of twilight I decided to read it again before the movie came out last weekend. BAD IDEA!!! I was one of those giddy little teenagers who waited in line for 4 hours to see the beloved "TWILIGHT"at midnight. It might have been because i was tired or because of the stinkin teenagers behind me that kept dropping the "f" bomb, or the fact that I reread twilight the day before that made my experience not so great. I think all of them combined maybe? I don't know, but it was quite depressing:( I knew it wasn't going to be as good as the book, but reading it the day before was a huge mistake cause i knew exactly what they changed, what they left out, what they were feeling, etc... Needless to say I am going to go see it again when it's not crowded, when I'm more coherent, and when there is no disrespectful teenagers in sight! And then I have a feeling I might just love it! Hopefully!!!

Excuse me while a vent...

Could I seriously wake up one morning and the kids be happy. Could I ask for something so simple? I have the grumpiest kids in the morning and it is wearing me down to the point were I think I'm going to explode! I've tried everything from being super duppy happy when they wake up, making favorite breakfast's, hugging them as soon as they walk out there bedroom door, to not putting up with it and fighting with them all morning. Is it ever going to get better? Am I ever going to hear the words, "Wow mom thanks so much for getting up and making me breakfast and helping me get ready for school". Nope...every morning it's, "I'm cold, my hot chocolate is to hot, the pancakes are to big, I want the blue cup, where's my toast, I hate that jacket, your mean" which follows with a morning of me very angry and frustated and them standing in the corner most of the morning. I'm at the end of my rope here. Any good suggestions from any of you professional moms out there. Will it ever get better? With that said I just want to tell my mom how sorry I am for times when I was like this! I'm sorry for being grumpy when you'd ask us to pull weeds or even complaining when you fed us oatmeal in the morning. I'm sorry for not wanting to do my chores and for secretly saying that you were mean (cause I was way to scared to say it to your face:)) Gosh I just realized that if I'm barely saying that now, that I've got a long road ahead of me:( AHHHHH someone put me out of my misery NOW!!!

Everyone's a Lobo

Logan and Cortney invited us to a Lobo football game with them last saturday and it was super fun! We had a great time. I think I caught myself watching the cheerleaders and dancers most the night or having really good conversation with Cortney:) The Lobo's ended up losing 10-13 to Utah. Overall it was a fun game to watch. All of you who know UNM know that Everyone's a Lobo, woof woof woof!!!
