Blog Dare - Day 14 - I can't believe that my kids like...


Blog Dare - Day 14 - I can't believe that my kids like...
 
I can't believe that my oldest son loves pizza and I swear could live off of it if I let him!
 
I can't believe that my middle son will eat anything so unlike the other 2 boys!
 
I can't believe that my youngest son is soooo picky on what he eats! He doesn't like the hamburger helper stuff that hubby does but he loves Tuna and some off the wall things like I do..but not really veggies at all!
 
I can't believe that my daughter ate a whole can of hominey as a snack yesterday!! LOL..yea she's my girl .. My veggie girl!!

Friday the 13th - tons of emotions came out today


So today is Friday the 13th..uh huh I believe it! Today before my hubby (soon to be ex) left for work he brought up some stuff that brought up other things that brought up more things and it went from there.
 
So needless to say he is now on his paid vacation week right now...It came out that I am done and don't want to be in this marriage anymore.
 
I have felt as though I have lost myself and who I am during these years and I don't want to continue down this road for 17 more years! So I let him know. We didn't fuss/fight/argue etc we talked it out..but this has been building up for awhile and now that things are coming together with the new house and things are finally starting too look up and such I really just want to start out this year fresh and this is the best way I feel to do it.

Some might think that I didn't try but when your not "in-love" with the person that you married to begin with..its another situation..and especially all the abuse and things that he's put on me for half of the marriage, I might of forgave him, but I won't ever forget all the things that we've been through. My mom back in the day when she scared me and I believed everything that she had to say she gave me the ultimatum of either marrying him or she would take my son from me and at the time I was 21 or so and I had a little efficiency apartment and working but it was tough and from all the abuse that I dealt with from her in the past I just bowed down to whatever she said and I believed her that she would take him and I wasn't about to have my child raised by her and have the chance that she would do to him what she's done to me so I said ok and married my hubby. I did it for my son..and now I am getting out of it for myself and my kids. I love my kids more then life itself and will do anything for them, I just don't love hubby and don't want to be married anymore...life goes on.
 
So he with the help of my middle son has convinced me to let him stay at the new house and share my middle son's room with him. The rooms are big and roomie at the new house and they will have 2 twin beds in each room so there is plenty of room as long as he knows and I have made it clear that I want my time and space and I am done living the life that my mom wanted me to live. So yea lots of emotions came out today...

Blog Dare - Day 12 - A vacation that I hope to take this year (Chocolate Bay)


Blog Dare - Day 12 - A vacation that I hope to take this year
 
I would absolutely love to take a trip to one of the zoo's either the OK City one or the Dallas one, other then that I would love to take the kids on a vacation to the ocean. I think that would be awesome to see. I have been to one but that was when I was a teen or younger so don't really remember too much about it so I would love to go there...I believe that is a little place called Chocolate Bay if I remember right and I am dying to go there! I think that was the name of it..I need to get my newer better vehicle first and foremost and then yes I will be taking a trip there with all the kids and taking tons of pics :) and making lots of great memories and hopefully even though they are rotten teens, they will appreciate it. We will see...not too sure when we will go.. I was wanting to do something during spring break which is around my birthday and when they are out of school so might do it then..not sure..will have to see...Might start planning now.

Blog Dare - Day 11 - If my parents had ever found out...
 
Hmm ok well this is an interesting one..lets see...if my parents had ever found out that I skipped school and hung out at the house all day there would of been heck to pay!
 
I skipped school a few times and one of the times there was 4 of us and we were gutsy, 2 boys and 2 girls..we were all best friends and paired and dating..well one of the guys came up with the idea of exchanging the girls and so we did and went and had fun..we just goofed off and then went to the fields away from my house by some apartments and had a blast just goofing off but if they would of known yea that would of spelt trouble with a capital T!! It was a complete blast and I would do it again in a heartbeat!!
 
Then there was the time that one of my boyfriends was in my house and my mom came in from work earlier then expected and she never knew! lol..She went to the bathroom to get out of her work clothes and he went out the back door and gone before she came out! Bad girl I was then!!

Blog Dare - Day 8 - Too much Television


Blog Dare Day 8 - Too much television
 
I think that too much television isn't good at all. I definitely limit the amount of time the kids even with them being teens I still limit the amount of time that they spend in front of the TV.
 
Yes I will admit we do have family time and sometimes it involves in front of the TV playing on the wii games together or watching a movie together etc but they are limited to it We have one television in our house, its in the front room. So they can't just go in there rooms and go sit in front of the TV for hours on end.
 
I don't mind TV sometimes to relax etc. We have cut back on watching shows. I like for them to read a book or even like a couple of them are like me and they like to blog and or write stories and or in there journal etc. So they love writing/typing just like me.
 
Since Fear Factor has started up again we are watching it on Monday nights as a family..me and the kids love it .. We sit there and say ewww or I want to go for such and such couple etc. And then on Tuesday nights we have shows out the ying yang and especially now that tomorrow night the new season of Dance Moms is coming back on so that another one that were watching..love it. Its a blast to have time in front of the TV but not too much. The rest of the week we have family night by just talking without the TV on..
 
When we move, I think that I'm going to keep it the same way it is now..one TV in the front room and that's it.
