What's been happening in my brain

We are less than 60 days till graduation. I have so much to do.. So much to process.. I've decided to have Connor's party at my house... Eeeeek

Teenagers are weird. I remember being a teenager.. I don't remember being weird.

It's never okay to say mean things. If a "joke" is hurtful.. Best to keep it to yourself. That's true at any age.

Our lives are changing. We will most likely be retiring from the Navy within a year. I go from excited, to terrified and back again. Pray for us as we enter this next adventure.

I have accumulated A LOT of shit in the last 14 years!! I have a lot of culling to do. Anyone wanna come help? :)

If you want a fabulous Connor graduation announcement, please message me your mailing address.

I made some pretty amazing kids, and I am so super proud of all of them. They aren't perfect, but they are pretty darn awesome, I'm a pretty lucky mama.

Someday I won't worry about money.. Someday I'll actually make it from payday to payday. I have total faith that that day is coming.

I know no one who says more random things than Garrett. You just never know what's going to come out of that kid.

I'd be a little lost without my bonus kids. I love Kaiden and Kyra so much!!

Ok so seriously.. When the hell did Easter become a gift giving holiday??!?! I mean SERIOUSLY!! When I was a kid we got eggs some jellybeans, maybe a chocolate bunny... That's it!! Now it's like extra Christmas!

I will never be adorable. I'll never be cute and matchy and sparkly.. I just won't... I've come to terms with it. :)

I've lost 14lbs.. A lot more to go.. But PROGRESS IS HAPPENING!!! :)

What in the name of all things good and holy is a pajanimal?!?! And WHY do they exist?

I have been so freaking grouchy lately. My sincerest apologies if you've been on the receiving end of said grumpiness. It's stress.. Im sure of it. I'm trying to just take one day at a time. My world is completely changing and it's scary a bit.

Beer is my friend, and I'm ok admitting that. Fortunately it's also bestie with my besties. It's so nice when all your friends get along well.

I wrote this the other morning..
"Let it go, let it go, I don't wanna hear it anymore.. Let it go, let it go stop complaining about your chores... I don't care what you were going to say... I'm getting very annoyed... Yes your brother will bother you anyway.. "
I'm a lyrical genius!!! BAM!
