Gather around everyone. I am going to tell you a story today. A story of a woman who has lost her mind and needs tons of crap to remember her name and what is going on in her life.
Well, Candid Karina wants to see our security blankets--the grown up versions. Please, let me break it down for you:
- My "little black book"--that is my phone...can't leave home without it.
- My "little gray book"--my address book...for those numbers that are not in my phone...you never know...you may just need one of them in a shopping time of need.
- My ink pen--because you never know when that little piece of inspired thought will come along and damn it all to HE!! if you forgot your pen at home---or you need to write on your hand cause you can't remember anything!!!
- My notebook (the striped bigger notebook in the middle)--for all my blogging and freelance writing ideas---my hubby just shakes his head at that.
- My Planner (the white and orange notebook on the right)--CAN NOT LEAVE WITHOUT IT--CAN'T REMEMBER ANYTHING WITHOUT IT--WOULD FORGET MY NAME WITHOUT IT--ok...i can't remember anything...especially now that i have 4 kids. My planner is my lifeline!
- And last but not least...My Coffee Cup. I am a stay at home mom so I need the biggest cup I can find for coffee and I don't need a lid...WALA...the mother of all coffee cups...and yes...it does hold almost a whole pot of coffee. But believe it or not...i am still dog tired by the middle of the day.
Well, that is my story of a lady who can't function without lots of notebooks and even more caffeine. Now go--look---check everyone else out.

so i had just finished my last post about how i love being a mom...when the horrible happens...my son smashed his mouth on the very corner of our brand new coffee table...
...first of all...let me add that we have had kids for 5 years and we have never owned a coffee table...both of us cracked our heads on the corners of coffee tables when we were kids and we just didn't want to deal with that...we have owned this coffee table for less than 2 weeks...i guess coffee tables will always be injury machines...
...but anyway...back to my disaster...so there is blood everywhere and he is screaming and not understand what is going on..the twins are crying...corrine is looking very scared...he split his lip and knocked loose one of his front teeth...
...let me say another thing...about 2 years ago we had to spend about 9 grand on his baby teeth...yea...that is what we thought...but they grew in rotton...some luck...so this loose tooth is worth about $700...
...so to make this long story very short...i spent the rest of my afternoon calling garrett so he could come home from work so i could take him to the ER...garrett spent the rest of his afternoon baking cookies for treat day...man...i tell ya...kids...ya can't live with them, ya can't live with them and own a coffee table...

So if you have read this blog at all, you know I have 4 kids...and they are a handful for me. I have twin infants, which are always keeping us busy...i have a 5 year old who is starting to have a social life---a bigger one than me i might add...and a 1 1/2 year old girl who wants to be the center of the world...and is sick...and is teething...4 teeth at a time!
But tomorrow is Kincaid's treat day at school...and this kind of stuff is my speciality. So I decided to do a super duper milk and cookies treat bag. They already get milk for snack time, so I baking the cookies. I am making oatmeal and raisin, macadamia nut and white choc., and halloween sugar cookies. I am going to decorate paper bags and put one of each cookie in each bag. I love doing this kind of stuff. I know I am so busy already and the pile of dishes on my counter is getting bigger by the second, but I don't care. I want my kids to have that special touch in their childhood. Isn't that one of the reasons I am a stay-at-home mother? I know it isn't for the money. I will take pictures and post later. But the down side of being a stay-at-home mother...I have 2 babies whining, 1 little lady screaming her head off, and one big brother who is bossing everyone around...but i love it!

ok...i have been sick this week and i just want to thank all the people who still stopped by my fun monday...i know i am not going to get to all of yours...i only got to a few as it is...but i just wanted to thank everyone for stopping by and i will see ya next week!
All right everyone, I know I have slacked this week...but give me a break. I was sick, then Kincaid, then Corrine, now the babies. Kincaid has missed school all week. He just can't shake the cough he has. It is bad enough he is hacking all over the house. Like I need him hacking all over the school building too. And besides, it is REALLY bleeping cold and windy here in small town iowa. I don't want him to get sicker. But here are his stuff from the week of the 8th...
his elephant of course..........................................and his apple finger puppet-there is a story to it but it is too long to put on here but trust me---it is awesome! that little thing is a potatoe temp. tatoo i got --he didn't do it at school but i thought it was funny when i found it so i got it--it is free (love free)
his class went on a field trip to Pistol Petes. there was "gold" mining, corn maze, and all the kids got to pick out a pumkin. this is the newspaper...really cool but the whole thing wouldn't fit on my scanner...sorry...no website.
this is his clifford page...he said he likes black...and this is his apple...love it. he is loving school and next tuesday is his day to take treats...any readers out there help me pick...
- Cracker Jacks
- Halloween Sugar Cookies
1 or 2...2 or 1...alittle of both...what should i send with him?

Describe your meeting with your spouse/significant other. I especially want to hear "meet cute" stories. And it doesn't have to be your actual current sig/other. Perhaps the "meet cute" story is a former boy/girlfriend... or even a best friend. Illustrate with photos, of course.
