You know your tired when....

Instead of writing your daughter's name on her snack bag, you write your own name and don't even realize it until one of the teachers mentions it. :)

You go to call one of your kids and you go through every one else's name in the family including your parents dog

You water your flowers and then 15 minutes later go to water them again not recalling you just watered it.

You forget your bank pin after even though you type it every day for the past 6 years


you blog about being tired cause you're just to tired to think of a more interesting topic

Sorting it Out

We had a scottish neighbor growing up for a few years of my life and I liked to catch their own unique phrases they use. One of them Jerry (the mom) said quite often. She would tell her 5 year old to "go sort yourself out" or she would tell how she needed a walk a bout to sort herself out.

That's what I felt this past Sunday evening. I was trying to sort out boundaries/acceptance/tolerance/truth with a person in mind. It's easy for me to accept someone is an adult and how they are making decisions affect them. It's just when this adult is going around the same cycle of life and they are asking how their track can intercept your life. Saying no in love is hard but then also balancing that with giving people another chance. So I'm sorting myself out! and maybe I'll go on a walk about while I go sort myself out

So Happy the Weekend is Here

I am really enjoying this weekend already. We as a family plan to chill and not go for a super good deal get away but relax which for the Jones means playing in the backyard/wild waters/barbecues with friends:).

This past week has been rather eventful. The last post about Caden kept me on the look out for any poops and man they are coming!! I have never been so happy to clean a poopy diaper in my life. Every time Andy or I change him and see a dirty diaper we literally do a dance. The absence of something for so long makes the coming of it quite an event

Plus garage saling season is upon us!!

Stuffed Up

This describes the physical condition of my son. We went to his 9 month old appointment and the doctor after feeling his abdomen says hmmm he has poop all the way backed up into his intestines! Caden has never ever ever ever had a big poopy diaper since he was born. I've tried multiple things for constipation but I didn't think that it was that bad.

So the doctor scraped all of the little home remedy stuff off the page and said forget all that lets start something more serious. Miralax. Great Morgan is on that. Don't have to go to the store to get some. So Caden gets that lovely stuff everyday and we'll see in a couple of weeks if it is poop and will have gone away theoretically with a laxative or something more serious. Go poop Go poop!

So Morgan and Caden can bond being on the same laxative :)

I am convinced...

That there is a market conspiracy in that they have created so many sizes of batteries that one must buy to get toys/mobiles to work for their children. I came to this conclusions after opening all of the kid's battery powered toys in hopes of finding C batteries for Caden's mobile as he was screaming his lungs out. No C batteries could be found. Makes me indignant as a consumer!!

That our the world is such much bigger then just what America has and does. I had never even heard of Eurovision just a few days ago. Makes me excited whenever I get out of the American box, just not to Russia though.

That the 2nd tennis grand slam of the year is starting in a matter of days! The French Open. I can hardly wait!!! Go Federer!! Makes me fondly remember seeing the Australian Open. If I was ever to go see the French Open though, it would be minus kids and plus Andy :)

That the weather has been so enjoyable . How long have we waited for this! So Nevada skips spring and goes straight to summer. Who said there are only 2 seasons in Nevada is a wise person. Seriously where have I heard that?

Yes for Sun!!

Finally sun is here!!! I have planted almost all my flowers so no more snowing, Nevada!!

I have been especially tired the last week. By 8 pm, I'm feeling so tired and falling asleep sitting in a chair. I've started to look at my schedule and even the weeks that I'm home for most of the week, the tiredness is still there. Hmm, maybe it's the 2 kids that have so much energy. For example, I literally ran around our small island in the house with Morgan for a 1/2 hour cause she wanted to run/dance to the radio music. I couldn't believe it...she takes twice as many steps as I do and I'm the one out of breath and collapsed on the couch. I also jammed my finger really bad trying to jump like a frog across the house. Is there such a thing as being TOO active with one's kids? I'm deciding to go to bed earlier then usual, and not staying up for American Idol. Oh well, I think I know who's going to win any ways ;). Go away tiredness!

Yesterday a friend came by and offered to run that machine over our lawn that puts the holes in it to air it out. Later that afternoon, Andy was looking out the frontyard and exclaimed "what the heck!" There was large hump that had there grew on our yard. It literally looked like we had buried someone in our yard. Andy is calling it a grass zit cause as soon as he stabbd it with a shovel, water started to gush out. Pretty funny. Glad Andy was able to fix the sprinkler head with minimal effort.

Caden is standing up already. He seems to know that I'm trying to delay his mobile ability. It is funny seeing Morgan crawl around with Caden . She thinks it's funny to act like a baby and he thinks it's great that someone else is crawling like him.

San Fran

This past weekend we went to the bay for a little get away as a family. We had tickets to the giants game which was on Saturday so that was already decided. The weather was mostly rainy and it was an interesting experience walking with 2 kids in the rain. I do have a new appreciation for those pop up covers that are attached to strollers and for rain coats!

It rained the entire weekend EXCEPT during the 6 innings of the baseball game. The sun came out and it was beautiful. Good timing! Right when we were leaving it started to down pour again. Even though it was raining most of the time, we had a great time. We went to the Exploratorium on Friday and had fun watching Morgan explore all the different types of experiments. My personal favorite was the toilet that was a drinking fountain. The point of it was to see how strong a person's emotions where tied to a particular object or the correlation of objects. I was really thirsty though :) plus we went to an old diner for dinner and they had very good milk shakes...yummy! I'll have to remember that place for next time

I really appreciate my husband, other people, and the Holy Spirit in my life.
