Your Blogging Type is Kind and Harmonious
You're an approachable blogger who tends to have many online friends.People new to your blogging circle know they can count on you for support.You tend to mediate fighting and drama. You set a cooperative tone.You have a great eye for design - and your blog tends to be the best looking on the block!
I have tons to blog about, however I am just trying to get all my thoughts together.
I am still recovering after Lily's party..and then 3 girls over here for a sleepover..
Girls are definitely a handful. Especially at the ripe ol' age of 9.
Lily is actually home sick today..she developed a cold over the weekend. I am making her homemade chicken soup, (so much better than the canned crap) and she has a nice cozy 'nest' on the couch to rest and relax. Although not sure how much resting she can get with her little bro running around antagonizing her.
I suppose I should move her to her bed.
I am waiting for a call back from the craft store..hopefully this all works out. I would love to work.. Just for a few hours and to be around other adults!!
I really need that adult interaction...I long for it actually. I know Justin is here..but honestly that doesn't count..he is just as much a kid as Lily and Jack are..hahah
Besides I am an extrovert and its for my own well-being that I not be cooped up in here.
Not much planned for the week. We are renting Iron Man Tuesday.
I am so looking forward to the debate on Thursday. Sarah Palin is completely repetitive..not to mention annoying..(in my humble opinion). Makes a perfect pair then with McCain...how many times did he mention " I never did win Mr. Congeniality contests ."
Both are totally clueless..
My brother-in-law sent this to us and its brilliant! So funny!
Check it out!
Off to start Lily's soup!

For a bit of sweetness and a bit of crunch I added half cup sweet corn.

I have a job interview..at 5:30..
I went to a craft store yesterday for a few things and I mentioned to the cashier how cool it would be to work here and she gave me an application and said come back tomorrow and 'so and so' will look over it and do an interview with you.
I went back today. Turned in my application along with my letter of recommendation and I need to come back at 5:30pm. They said "when can you work?"..I said "evenings and and weekends..when do you need someone?"
They said "evenings and weekends.."
Wish me luck!

They are fantastic....
He also ordered Forth by Verve and a Feist CD for me...
Can't wait til' they get here.
Nothing going on this week...except for a pool party with a crap load of hormonal tween boys and girls for Lily's Bday...
That's on Saturday..
Over the weekend some little boy came over here..some kid from Lily's class...
Apparently he really adores Lily..and is constantly asking her if she likes him..but he doesn't take rejection well.
He is obsessively calling..seriously..he must have called at least 15 times yesterday.
After awhile I was getting annoyed and said look..Lily is not going to come out to play anymore (he lives in the complex next door to us) and she can't talk on the phone anymore today. He says ok.
15 minutes he calls. Again.
Maybe 5 times after that too.
Once he even apologized for calling so much.
Finally that's over..
And then the phone rings..again..
Luckily it was some other girl for Lily..
Its weird to have all these kids calling here.Saturday there musta been 3 different kids calling for her.
I think her body is going through many changes now too..obviously.
The most notable one is the sleep.
Before she would go to bed around 830pm and wake at 6am..even on the weekends..
Now she goes to bed same time..and wakes at almost 10am!
I even had to check on her a few times to see if she was ok.
And she only got up at 9:45 because someone called here for her.
I am still working on this week's menu..
Its getting kinda chilly and I am sooo looking forward to fall and making stews, soups and that comfort food..ya know like pot roasts...casseroles..the stick to your bones kinda stuff. Although we really don't need that, but hey its fun, we gotta eat, and it makes the house smell good.

Well I did it..it was great..but I hadn't added the jalapeno yet..so I added a bit and it was just mild..
Throwing caution to the wind and leaving it up to the salsa gods to make this tasty..I added the whole thing..seeds, innards and all.
After taking a picture I got me a chip and put a huge pile of it on there and crunch away...
2 seconds later........
I immediately started to sweat profusely..and my lips went numb, because apparently I am a slob and had salsa on my mouth.
I had to run to the bathroom to see what the hell was happening to me, because I swear my lips were puffy and huge like after having too much Botox.
And of course I started to hiccup..I do that when I eat something spicy..weird but true.
Justin is gonna love this...
I made tons of this so he better like it.
Maybe I will phone him and tell him he needs some beer with this concoction.
Well I am off to concoct some sort of salsa.. Wish me luck!

I ate a healthy, not to mention insanely delicious bowl or organic cereal.
I enjoyed me a bowl of Strawberry Fields made by Kashi.
The strawberries are so good and *gasp* actually taste like real strawberries..rather than that weird chemically taste that hangs in your mouth hours after eating some other random cereal with supposed *real strawberries*.
I enjoyed two small cups of coffee after it and it has kept me going..no need to snack and this was at like 6:15 am this morning.
and no I'm not talking join the PTA..and no I didn't take that job as a phone sex operator...(although how rad would that be..at home doing your job..but I suppose your clients wouldn't like to hear screaming kids in the background..haha..totally kidding btw)
I've decided to take my family's health into my hands and change the way we do things...
I am the one who cooks everything..does all the grocery shopping...and I have the power and I can make the decisions..
We are on a mission to get healthy...and hopefully on this mission..a couple two, three pounds will be shed..
I haven't been cooking the most healthy of meals..obviously....just scroll back and look at all the crap I've given my little family. :(
I am going to have a different mind set...and focus on healthy eating and have the kids learn healthy habits...that's very important to me. We definitely need more whole grains and fiber in our diets... We are pretty good about not eating things with partially hydrogenated oils in them...not to mention HFCS..(high fructose corn syrup).....
I have reduced my coffee consumption to a small coffee cup size..and I have about 2 of these. Before I was tossin' back about 3 ginormous mugs of creamed filled java.
I can get this whole eating good down..its just the exercise thing that just gets me down. I have no equipment..and sometimes its too freaking hot to go walking...I have no stroller for Jack because he outgrew it..so I am at a loss..what the heck can I do?
Swim? Yeah we do that..but c'mon after awhile my hair turns dry and has a greenish/blue hue from all of the chemicals and chlorine.
