Hello Friends! :) How has everybody been? ME?! I have been a busy little bee just buzzing around in my garden, with my kids, trying to scrap here and there and trying to enjoy my self doing it. Yes, I was trying out for more design teams during this, but decided that when the time is right it will happen. Besides, I am still on the MOMS DT for now and that keeps me PLENTY busy..even if it is just dreaming up what looks good for what. TeeHee. I will tell ya though, Miss Jeanie has been up to a lot and as soon as she gives me the go ahead...I will share what she has been up too--through my eyes! :) That may make you go "hmm", but I know you will be as excited as me when I am able to reveal some "Jeanie Goodness". :)
I know I have said it before, but I am so sorry that I got so behind with my blog...AGAIN! I love sharing my life and I love reading comments, so there really isn't an excuse for me being absent from here and from you. I do a lot of Facebook, but if you don't follow me there then you don't know the ups and downs of my life, but more importantly the ups and downs of me. ;)
I really have been enjoying my gardening above all else though. I have veggies and some grapes and strawberries growing in my backyard. It is a very relaxing hobby for me. I am not sure if it is just the "mom" in me that has the need for it or just that I can zone when I am working out there. It's funny that I say work, because for me-it isn't work at all. :)
What is work? POTTY TRAINING! Yes, I have a 3 year old and she is potty training. I couldn't have had 2 more totally different children than Sasha and Jon. Jon was quick to learn everything. Now, before you jump to conclusions- I am not saying Sasha isn't smart or AS smart as Jon....BUT...she is so totally stubborn that I am sure that she KNOWS how to go potty, but won't because she LOVES getting changed. WHO KNOWS!? ;) I just know that she has days she LOVES going potty and days that she just has a stand off. I don't let her win, but I am usually the one that just says, "ok, let's revisit this."
While I am on the subject of work.....Tantrums...those are also a HUGE job to get through. I have had all kinds of friends and family alike giving me advice on getting through and/or getting rid of them. But, we have tried most of them without any success. We have good days and bad...I am finding that it may be a schedule thing for Sash. If I don't push her too long and make sure she gets down for a nap...she is golden. But..man, if we miss it? OMG! Don't be on my block if you have a headache.
As a lot of you know, I also have fibromyalgia and that keeps me from a lot of what I love so much. I am finding that if I take my supplements (Vitamin D, Co-Q10, and B12) though and sleep when I need to that I am ok for the most part and have minimal pain. It is when I am stubborn and PUSH through the pain that I tend to pay for a few days and then I am finding that I am more behind than ever. :P I still refuse to take any other prescriptions for it and I am trying to stick to my supplements and activity. Although, the activity part I need to get better at.
So there you have it. This is what I have been up to since the end of April. :) I have had a few school things with Jon and he has had a football camp he did, but I will post pics and/or scrapbooking layouts for that soon. I hope! ;)
