i am going to wait till she opens everything and then I am going to snatch all of her toys, hehe.

we got her a yo gabba gabba dancey dance mat, littlest pet shop, a princess tent, a big disney princess coloring book (easel style) and her grandparents got her clothes-8 outfits, 30 dollar walmart gift card, and a card that said princess on it. it was cute.  we go to montana next week where her other grandparents/aunts and uncles are planning on doing something for her too. so that should be nice.
it was a nice evening.  i am ready for bed now.

Update on Peanut, she was pretty good today and did not upset her sisters day and behaved herself by not terrorizing my house...which was great.

i was complaining yesterday about noggin, and now it's nick jr.
same programming, same zee the bird, and same moose a moose.

Feeling kind of blue and other rambles

I am so sick of noggin...I love my daughters, but I really need friends out here.

This is starting to suck.

I went from working to not working and to being at home and now I hate being here everyday...I have been ostracized from my "friends" because I no longer work with them.  It makes me sad.

Tommorow is my daughter's birthday.  My husband and I have planned to get her a cake and icecream and do something small with our family.  My family and his family have sent gifts and of course we have bought her gifts as well.  This will be the first time I have not thrown a birthday party and it is sad. 

I crave a good friend.  Since moving to Virginia things were fine at first, until I moved away.  My so called friends fell off, even after attempts to see them and talk to them, and I know some of it is because I don't live in the area anymore or work at the same job anymore, and that is fine.  Maybe they feel uncomfortable around me, I am not sure.  I just chose to give up trying to contact them and just left it alone. Friendship is a two way street and for me to be driving 45 minutes to your house just to visit every week is ridiculous when you have not once tried to reach out to come see me.  I am just very distraught about this.

I think I need a nap.  My blog is getting forgive me if I am boring any of you. 

I looked at layouts today and didn't find anything I liked yet.  I will probably come up with something new and revamp my page a little.

The girls are doing good, except the Princess is torturing me with Noggin.  P is home now and he's making him and me some pizza rolls, good kid. One bonus I may gain about 10 pounds from being at home, which I need... I think I am too skinny.

Peanut did not terrorize my house today, I think she tuckered herself out from all the havoc she caused yesterday. 

On another note, I didn't even talk about my date night with my husband on Friday...shame on me...we went to see Surrogates.  Surprisingly for a Friday night the theatre was not packed
We spent 30 bucks on two large drinks, medium popcorn and loaded nachos plus 20 bucks on the tickets, but it was cool to get out of the house.  I was also surprised that there were not alot of kids in the theatre...not little kids but you know teenagers...there wasn't a lot and the ones that where there were very well mannered.

We had a good time at the theatre, the movie was nice.
Afterwards, we came home and spent the rest of the evening cuddling and watching was a chilly night.  Waiting for the weather to get a little cooler so we can snuggle in front of the fireplace.

My fireplace invites snuggling up too. see:

this picture was taken the day we moved in, now it is decorated and homely, just have not taken any new pictures of the house yet and was hoping to do so as soon as I get a moment where my house is totally fabulous and Peanut destruction free. LOL.

Hopefully, I will start to meet more people. 

We only have a year left here, but I will go crazy if I go through the last year without a friend close by. 

My problem is I live near a MCB and I don't socialize with any of the MCB wives because they are pretty stuck up and in their own little world and I have nothing to offer them...we are Army and I am so not into the Army life...I have always just been a regular person.  I support my husband but don't get involved in the entire military lifestyle thing...all my girlfriends are the same.  We just never did that.  Here I think that is why I am ostracized...I am not into peoples business, I do have my shit together, and I am not falling apart whenever they are, or are crying to their husbands unit for dumb stuff.  We don't have financial problems, and we aren't having a crazy yo-yo I can't relate to anyone.  Not that I have ever knocked them or anyone on it, I just had nothing to contribute to their lives.  If they asked me for advice or an opinion, I had to give them what I thought of the situation...if I could relate and since I could not, the best I could do was listen and tell them as a friend I hoped that things would get better.  I did try to at least do that if I could not answer their questions.  You know the term misery loves company? I think they didn't want to be around me because I was not miserable or had anything bad to say about my life or complain about the complaints they had. 

If they could only read this blog now...they would see that even I, have bad days too. Just at the time, I didn't look at what was going on in their lives as a constant soap opera like some of our other friends did...I did not have them in my life as entertainment...I was genuinely their friend just to be their friend.

Oh well. This blog has turned into a book. Time to eat my pizza rolls...

I am going to revamp my blog. 

I am the blogger in the family and I am the one who updates this with my rants..or whatever you want to call it, so I am going to try to figure out how to add more pictures and do more stuff with my layout. Anyone have any ideas?

R.I.P my beautiful houseplants

Today Peanut decided to destroy all of my houseplants...she's worse than having a cat...
among other things she just could not help herself with. she just could not behave to save her life today.

what did I do? Walk around and clean up her mess and go "no, no ma'am" all morning.

She's tuckered herself out now and is passed out on the couch.

I'm starting to dread having all this space, it's more to clean up now.  My house has 3900 sq feet of living and its nicely furnished but on three levels, it has survived two kids...but will it survive Peanut?  She has managed to make a mess of some sort in every single room in this house today...from toys to food crumbs because she escapes from the table...she doesn't listen like the Princess Peanut has her own agenda, she's sneaky!  I turn my back and she killed my plants.  I was busy cleaning another mess of hers that involved strewing toys all up and down the stairs.

Only time will tell...will get pictures loaded another time...I'm exhausted and I need a captain and coke...badly!

Been a long day

so i have been following blogs half the day and watching foosball on the flat screen and i have come to the conclusion that espn's redzone is the devil...i was glued to it for hours catching all of my nfl picks...i know not a girly thing to be doing but so what, i'm not all that froo frooey although at one time i was considered a hot comodity, but that is for another

anyways that was my day in a nutshell. so for those of you trying to figure out who i am, i am not anyone special i followed your blog because it caught my attention or because the read was interesting that is about it. i would like to get to know people though, so you never know if i start commenting on your posts, it is because i feel comfortable to do so...not stalking.  i came across a lot of interesting blogs so it was cool to read and watch foosball to destress my day.

take care.

Peanut takes a break

It was a little too quiet, now I know why...Peanut was asleep in the laundry basket of clean clothes upstairs in my's Sunday...I decided I would get to it later. so cute!

I did pick her up and put her in bed, but it was just too cute.

Workplace bullying

do you feel like throwing up the night before you go to work?
does your family tell you to stop obsessing about work at home because they are frustrated?
does your doctor tell you to change jobs due to the condition of your health recently? ex..skyrocketting blood pressure and chronic headaches?
you feel ashamed that you are being controlled by another person at work to tell your spouse or partner
days off are spent exhausted and lifeless, your desire to do anything is gone.
your favorite activities with friends and family are no longer appealing
you begin to believe that you may have provoked the workplace cruelty.

You are a victim of workplace bullying...heres where to go for help to recognize these symptoms.
On are you tired of work? bullying might be to blame!

I was a victim of workplace bullying, and I resigned from my job as a result of that.  I will be seeking to get vindication for that.

Pixeled today

So today I pixeled some dolls, here they are, and one from my son P, he just wanted to do a doll with me, and yes I could have downloaded some male bases or created one, but I haven't yet. Running a family, and a business I can miss stuff.  So here's our attempts, I am a little rusty although I have made beauties in the past...

I will get better...

the bases come from angy chan and the big purple dragon websites.  the avatar dolls i made from a dollmaker at , being lazy.

And you think your life sucks?

Go to this site called FMylife, now some of these peoples lives really do suck.
heres the url  for it's a very interesting site.

I have been faithfully reading it for a year now, it's a great site to go to when you think your life is bad. 

What a day!

Finally, I am getting my page together here.  I haven't found any new homes for my older blogs, I think I am going to try to transport them here. I should have moved them to blogger long ago. My bad.

I had an interesting day yesterday, but I will leave it at that. No need for that negativity and childish games. I sent an email to the offender/victim if you look at it the way I do.  I know for a fact this person would never act like that so childishly in all of her years.

The move here to Stafford has been great and peaceful.

Update:  We are going to Montana in October, so that is great.  We have decided to take the train.

Reason one:  Princess who's nearly 3 her birthday is September 30th, and her sister Peanut who is a year old, her birthday is July 11;--these two girls hate flying. It hurts their ears.

Reason two:  P, our oldest who's nearly 13 his birthday is February 5th, he didn't want to be stuck in the Lady with us for nearly four days to travel all that way driving with the girls. Although, he loves the luxury, he hates being couped up in a car, going cross-country.

So what do we do?  We call momma and she buys us tickets for the train, which we will be traveling in first class, which is great. Round trip. Love mommy.

Now, have to go shopping for warm's a bit nippy in Montana at that time of year.

Feels so great that it's fall now.
