As I tell my kids if they say something negative they also have to say something positive so My positives for the day:
So, my sister recomended afrin nasal spray so Jake and I are going to get that then we are off to BK for lunch. He deserves it for putting up with a whiny mommy.
My great friend Shelby is bringing over dinner and she is a phenomenal cook. Thanks Shelby.
My laundry is mostly caught up and not weighing on my to do list. That's really why I got it all caught up, it just sat in the back of my mind telling me my job wasn't done.
Jake is a great cuddler and will watch a movie in my room while I nap.
Celia, I too had no idea how powerful the internet was. Sorry to share my germs but My mom always taught me that sharing was good. Now if only the neighbor would let me drive his/her BMW. LOL.

I jinxed myself last week when I told someone that we haven't been sick all winter. Yep, I'm sick and so is Jake. Just a small cold but still not fun. This one gave me bone aches yesterday. I took alot of ibuprofen and laid around with Jake. He's a good cuddler. Then Natalie my care taker came home and tried to take care of me. She ended up getting frustrated because no one listened to her. At least she tried. Then it became everyone fighting with eachother and nit picking at eachother. Oh yes, the joys of child rearing. I yelled at everyone and made them sit in seperate areas until Bob got home. Then of course they all missed eachother and whined that they couldn't sit with eachother. That's my life and probably any other mom out there. Oh well. What are we to do. At least my laundry is all caught up.

Would you rather
- Be at the top of a stopped ferris wheel for 24 hours
- On a roller coaster ride for 2 hours straight
My choice would be the roller coaster for 2 hours straight. I can handle heights as long as I'm not looking down for long periods of time. Stuck on a ferrris wheel for 24 hours would probably give me a heart attack because all I'd be thinking of is falling to my death. I do love ferris wheels but not for that long of a time. There's a skyline tram at Lagoon here in Utah and I freak out riding that one. Scares the bajeebers out of me, especially if I have my kids with me. The roller coaster on the other hand I'd do beacause I think I'd be so busy moving around on the roller coaster that I wouldn't really think about it. I may be sick afterwards but I'll take that chance. At least I'd be alive.

In case any one was wondering I still have not got my groceries. I did get stuff to make ruebens tonight but I was too lazy to go do the big grocery trip. Plus, I wanted to come home to some silence. I did watch Big Brother though. These people are so dumb!! It really is like mice in a cage. I get so sucked into this stupid show every season. One of the couples actually had "relations" on the show!!! I'm not a prude but jeez, that's gross!!! They didn't show the "act" itself but you knew what they were doing since the guy says he'd only be like 20 seconds. Hope that isn't his claim to fame!!! How about you use some self restraint while you are on NATIONAL television. Someone's parents must be really proud. Hope I didn't offend anyone with this talk but it has really been on my mind. If my boyfriend wanted to have "relations" while we were being filmed 24 hours a day for NATIONAL tv I'd think twice about who he is. Seriously, is that how much you respect me? That's just how I see that whole thing. I'm worth at least 30 seconds! LOL. The girl says she is very competetive so maybe they just race to the ummm finish line? I may be wrong about all this but it's just my opinion and yes, I'll still watch the show, it's a bad habit but still on NATIONAL tv???
I'm getting all worked up here and can't type as fast as my mind goes so I'll just change the subject....
No I didn't feel the earthquake in Nevada. Hope everyone is safe and that no one lost anything irreplaceable. I do wish I'd felt it but at the same time it's scary. I live by mountains and have heard that we are near a fault line. I'm too scared to actually find out. It's not like I'll sell the house if I find out that we are on a fault line. I like my area. So I'll just live with anything that could happen.

I was at a party when I fell in love. I looked up and saw the most gorgeous man I had ever seen. And I swear I heard angels singing. I also heard someone else saying "This is my brother Bob". I knew without a doubt that I was going to be Mrs. Bob. I know the love at first sight thing is easily laughed at but I seriously was in love the minute I saw him. I have been falling steadily in love since that day in 1992. The way he says my name, the way he stands up for me, the way he knows my faults and loves me anyways. The gentle way he held each of our newborn babies. The way he gets excited for the little things. He is one of the few people in this life that I can truly count on to support me in anything. He makes me laugh and feel like a queen. I know with Bob around I am truly cherished. He is also the most amazing father I know. He is firm yet gentle, he puts the kids above himself and even his career at times. He is truly an amazing man. But, I am most truly in love with my husband because he "gets" me and he still likes me!! From the moment I met him I have always felt that it was destiny to meet him. We have made such a lovely life and children that I don't think we were meant to be apart. I am truly a better person because of my husband.
I know this is sappy but it's me. I am a romantic at heart. I love, love. And I am so glad that Bob and I are still in love through all the things that life has thrown at us and all the things to come, we are still together. I hope to sit next to him someday and enjoy our great grandkids. I can not imagine my life without his smile, his voice, or even his stubborn ways. He is my better half.
