cha-ching part 2

so i posted this and then went to my room and got down on my knees. (cause you know that's the best place to be when you just can't take anymore.) i just prayed for lots of work for hubby and for me to not worry and to be thankful in every circumstance. even the bad ones. hubby and big c had gone to pick up some windows for this addition he is (supposed) to working on. he comes home and says, i got some work. i was floored. way to go God! talk about moving quickly!! and it will start when we get home from va-ca so he will have something to do then!

thanks for listening to me gripe. again.


money. i hate it. or i would if i had any. how is it that an object that i don't have can make me so miserable? i am soooo tired of living like all my possessions could be taken away at any moment. i hate worrying about bills. i want to get them in the mail, pay them and not worry that i can't feed my kids. i love my husband. i really do. but sometimes i wish i had a husband who had a profession that was dependable. and you know most of the time, i don't worry. but today is just one of those days where i can feel this huge weight on me. and i hate it. hate it hate it hate it. i want to cry and scream and throw things. but i won't. (well maybe i'll cry a little)

hopefully my next post will be about something positive!!!!

2 posts in one day!!!!!

i have to tell you that i just read my entire blog. i started April 16, 2007 and i have almost 300 posts. monkey keeps coming in here asking me what i'm laughing about. usually it's something hysterical he said/did that i blogged about. go back and read your blog from the beginning. you will learn some things about yourself and see how you've grown.

i also found out that i'm really funny and a very good writter. (so much for not tooting my own horn!) so i think i'm going back into the blogosphere! i really liked it there!

Moaning on a Monday

so my friend B over at The Photog Nazi just shared her monday moan. and since i have been doing laundry all day, i thought i would jump in too. (especially since i have had my blog window open since thursday trying to get my self to do Thankful on a Thursday that my friend miranda over That's What She Said does. why is it easier to moan than be thankful?) anyway. laundry. do you loathe it like i do? listen. i live in a house with me and 3 men. (well 2 boys but you know what i mean) most men/boys don't have lots of clothes. so i thought. for monkey i just folded 9 pairs of shorts and/or long pants (b/c he doesn't like to wear shorts even when it's 99 degrees) and 15, yes 15! shirts with short and long sleeves. for caleb i folded 5 pairs of shorts and 12 shirts. given that he wears his "favorite" jeans 7 days a week makes the fact that he has that many shorts, boggle my mind. oh and for me. 7 pair of undies, 1 pair of shorts and 2 t-shirts. (there is another load in the dryer but since i put it in there i know it doesn't contain tons of my stuff) and just so you know i got up and counted all those clothes so don't think i'm making this up. why oh why could my 7 year old wear 15 shirts in a week? and why oh why do i have to fold them. not even going there with the hubby. and then there this the big thing with my washer which has only gotten worse. so laundry. i hate it. maybe if i had more clothes of my own i would like it better. but i don't think so.
