Going Home...

I just recently got our itunes account "authorized" on the laptop and was finally able to listen to some music while, deciding what I was going to blog about tonight, when all of a sudden Chris Daughtry began to sing to me about "Home." (side note: I totally love Daughtry and "Home" is one of my favorite songs!)

Made me think...Home? What is home?

Some say that home is that place where you lay your head...I thought that was a seriously...Growing up I was able to sleep anywhere I laid my head. Not that I was always sleeping somewhere different, but rather I was in my bed, at my grandmother's or aunt and uncle's home, I could sleep. So if that is the truth then I had lots of homes!

Some say going home refers to dying...going home to meet the Creator and so forth.

Home is that set of keys on the keyboard your fingers touch in the resting position.

Home is that final bag you cross in order to score in baseball.

Sitting on my bed, laptop in front of me, baby monitor to my side...I can hear the sounds, all the sounds echoing through the house. SecretAgent and DareDevil in the bathtub, doing who knows what. I can hear the water cutting on and off. (Yeah, that's not good!) Izzy is in the exersaucer bouncing up and down, jabbering away at anyone who will listen, and fussing at those who won't listen. Fireman's talking to his "baby girl" and ever so calmly reminding the boys that they need to be on their bottoms in the tub or else...SPLASH...apparently they jumped and landed on thier bottoms, which now means my bathroom floor is covered in water! There goes Buck. He's on the back porch barking at...I have no clue what! All these sounds...they make up my matter how annoying or aggrevating they may get...these are the sounds of my HOME...the HOME I love and the place I WANT to go to!

So you see Home is what you make it! So LOVE it and ENJOY it!

Help! I've Been ATTACKED!!!

Ok...for those of you who know me from BEFORE kids, know that I was overly organized and pretty good at housekeeping. Since the kiddos were born...well...I basically stink at keeping a clean house! I read all these wonderfully written blogs and books about ways to organize and stay clean...I could probably get can't. You see Fireman would have to get it too, and I don't know that he can! Bless his soul!

So...recently I asked some fellow bloggers about their laundry habits. That seems to be the toughest chore for me. You see...I HATE IT. I hate everything about! I would be pleased to light a match to it and light it all! Burn it up I tell ya!!

I need discipline...someone to be accountable too...soooooooo....I present you with...(drum roll please) THE LAUNDRY PILE!!!!


It is my goal that this pile be gone...washed, dried, folded and put away by Saturday! (Without using matches) Yep! That's the plan...Prayers people...lots of prayers

Mac-n-Cheese Please growin' up I could eat mac-n-cheese EVERYDAY!!! Fine stop pointing...I still can. Both the boys are the same is the babysitter (a.k.a. Country Girl)...I think DareDevil and Country Girl eat a box everytime she keeps him.

When SecretAgent was a baby he would eat only one brand of food...the other two followed the same suit. I didn't plan it this way or force it on them. They liked the thickness of it I think. So anyway...Izzy has been getting baby food. She HATES Mac-n-cheese. This has worried me so much...could she truly be my child? Maybe I should contact the hospital?

While grocery shopping last night...I thought....let me try a different I got the brand the normally hates and blows back in my face! Seriously! I have the stains to prove it. Guess what....She is OFFICIALLY my child!

***Disclaimer: I am by no means promoting any particular brand of baby food or suggesting any brand of type of baby food. That is the choice of you, your family and your physician. :-)

This is just for fun! LOL....

Yeah...I don't even know what to say! She loves this little boy! They are going to be inseperable when they get older...I guess it was just one of those shots! LOL....I just giggle everytime I see it!
