New Camera

Well as you all know I want a new camera and we got one but it is not the one that I wanted. We got a kid tough digital camera for our four year old. It was his birthday on Sunday the 19th of this month. Today I let him play with it and take pictures of what ever he felt like.

Here are a few…

Boxed Dinners

I have decided that there should be a warning on the box that says “WARNING!! If you forget that you are cooking this it will boil over and try to consume your kitchen!!” Or maybe I should just pay more attention when I am cooking but whatever. I like the warning idea better.


My daughter seems to dislike her grandmothers. Is that weird? My mom, my grandma’s and my great grandma all make her scream uncontrollably. I think that it is kinda funny and we call her “cry baby” but it makes me feel bad.

I almost wonder if she is just  worried about something or maybe it is just how they smell. I don’t mean that they smell bad just perfumes etc. considering that I don’t wear anything like that. Who knows, I just thought that it was weird.

She is so small for her age I am almost worried about it.  Well she is skinny, tall and skinny. (I know she doesn’t get it from me) At almost 7 months she only weighs 15 lbs. All my friends kids are closer to 20, not that I should be comparing her to them but she is so tiny.

I have had people tell me that I need to feed her more but she eats like a pig, all she does is eat. I don’t get it maybe she will grow into her height one of these days. Or who knows maybe she will just be one of those women that I hate. You know the type, beautiful, tall, skinny, yeah……..

Life is soooo crazy lately.

Wow I have just been soooo super busy. I feel like I just have not been able to do anything ever. I have my kids as you know but I have been watching one of my girl friends two children and boy are they a handfull.

Brian who is 2 1/2 years old is a good kid and he gets kinda lost in the hurd most days so I feel bad, and Bobby who is 11 months old is just horrid. I don’t know how to deal with this kid. He drives me insane, I know that kids cry but dang it. I don’t think that mine do or have ever cried that much. I have tried to chalk it up to seporation anxiety etc but it is not getting any better at all. I feel like I am at a loss. So between being a relatively new mommy again, having a special needs child, and her two I am loosing it.

How do you tell a very good friend that you just can’t watch her kids anymore when you konw that she HAS to work and doesn’t have anyone else? I feel like an ass for having to tell her. I really don’t want to, but I don’t think that I am going to have another choice before long. Depressing.

On a happier note, I have been working with some horses. I am having a ball and it is keeping my even that much more busy. Soephi the horse that I am training exclusively is so pretty. She is half polish and half saddle bred, and a really nice bay ( in color). She is 2 1/2 years old, and was abused. (Very abused, beaten and starved) It is kind of sad but she is coming out of it really well I think. I have had her under saddle one time but I just don’t trust her at this point, and the last thing that I need is to hit the ground.

My husband and I at one point were planning a huge move to Texas that just didn’t go the way that we thought it should. I had no idea how hard it is to find adiquate housing in Austin. I / we were bummed that it just couldn’t work. I kind of wish that we were able to go but on the other hand I think that I would have really missed my family. I have never lived any other place than Oregon, and it is just so pretty here. If you have not been here you should come and visit sometime.

Well I am going to get back to watching Susan Lucci on Dancing with the stars. Have a good night!!!
