AHHHH!!!!


Let’s see my last post was on September 12, and I was apologizing for no longer blogging regularly and I put in a side note that Abi had started talking and Scott had gotten a job. It is now October 2, wanna know what has happened since then… Are you sure?!

LOL oh here it goes, you asked for it!

Indeed Abigael is talking again, just not to everyone just yet. As of now she will only speak to Jacob, her dad, Granny, Alvin and myself. As soon as she senses the presence of someone else, she shuts up like a clam and Jacob seems to be the only one who can get her back to talking. For those of us that she does talk to she just picked up where she left off she whispers, sings and has God forbidden tantrums in which she can scream to high heaven and back.. LOL I love her beautiful voice, just wished it was beautiful all the time! She is slowly starting to make noises around everyone else, which leads me to believe that someday soon everyone will hear this little angel!

Yes Scott did have a new job. A really good job too. But unfortunately he let the devil get into that thick skull of his and he quit,3 weeks in and he just walked away. But that is OK, well it’s not OK but what is done is done and there ain’t nothing I can do about it now! I screamed, I hollered, I threatened, I cried, I beat him with a yard stick, but non of that got his job back nor did it make me feel all that much better…Maybe I should have tried a bat?!

After all this we sat down like grown ups and had a little talk. He is going to get another job and we are going to reinvent our marriage. Although we thrive on routines, there are places that they don’t belong and a marriage is one such place. Over the past 9 years we have just figured out what works and kept doing that. And well our little rut is boring and not helping matters! So we through our the rule book and are changing things up.

Oh yea and in the past week I have been attacked by a bird, a stuffed monkey posed as a rat and a snake! LOL Ok I will tell more! Somehow, don’t know how and really don’t care how, a small brown thrasher managed his way into my house and into my bedroom. After about an hour of trying everything I could think of to rid myself of the sign of death in my bedroom. I through in the towel ran in got its attention and let it chace me all the way outside. I can still feel that mean lil booger on my back!

The stuffed monkey posed as a rat attacked me that very same night… OK OK it didn’t attack me, but it did scare the bejeezus out of me LOL. so here I am still visibly shaken by the bird attack that afternoon and trying to manage to still get a few things done. So I make my rounds and end up in Abi’s room turning down beds and laying out her clothes for the next day. When out of the corner of my eye I spot a good-sized white rat under her bed. I start freaking out cause I know she has no rat like toys. Scott comes running to the rescue and immediately starts trying to get it out from under the bed, only one problem. He has no clue what he’s after cause he doesn’t see anything under the bed. I continue screaming and add a few mean comments because only Scott can miss a huge white rat under the bed! By this time Granny hears me and grabs her bat if it comes after her. Then my beautiful Abigael manages to stop laughing just long enough to whisper Mommy it’s just a stuffed monkey! What no way.. i can tell its a rat! Well call me a fool I don’t care but she bravely and against my will reached behind her bed and grabbed the rat by the tail, only to show that it was indeed just a stuffed monkey! LOL oops!

So OK the snake didn’t exactly attack me either, but it was very real and very alive! Today Scott and I managed to find a few minutes to watch some TV while the kids played outside. Well halfway through Patch Adams, Abi runs in and screams Mommy there is a snake! We jump up run outside, and yep.. The was a 2 ft long black snake making its way across the yard. OK not scared of a black snake so we just scooped it up in the sand bucket and through it back in the woods. But Thank God it was just a harmless black snake and that she had enough sense to come get us and not play with it!

Not exactly sure that this catches you up on everything, but apparently if you don’t blog for a few weeks you end up writing a book! I promise to at least try to start back to my daily blog agenda come next week.

Until then… I love you!

My week at a glance…..


MONDAY August 1, 2011

Kids started school. Jacob is now a 3rd grader and Abi has finally made it to big kid school and is now a kindergartener! Where on Earth did summer go. The heat came in like a slap in the face but the lazy days of summer never made it to my house!  I hope my kids enjoy their school year and always remember to do their best!

Tuesday August 2, 2011

Ugh! This morning was horrible! Just like in years past Jacob refused to get up and ready for school. By 7am I had been called stupid lazy and mean. Apparently I am the worst mother on Earth just because I make my kids get up get dressed and go to school. I know he has Aspergers and all but I can not keep doing this.

He did have a counseling appointment Tuesday afternoon, which he hates. He says Ms Christel is horrible and tells us to do horrible things to him.. LOL she is a big advocate of routines and schedules, so he hates her!  He refuses to do anything she asks him to do. He says routines ans schedules are mean and are not for him and that if we even tried to understand him we’d know that. Too bad for him I also know that once he gives in and complies to the routines and schedules he does wonderfully!

Also today we talked him into getting his hair trimmed!  He now has eyes, ears and a neck!

I love you Jacob, you will forever be Mama’s Lil man!

WEDNESDAY August 3, 2011

Well as if my life wasn’t already complicated and full of grief and hardship, today I was diagnosed with Pre-diabetes and high Cholesterol. Doctor says I have 6 months to lose at least 30 pounds. He’s not convinced that weight loss alone with help either my sugar levels or my cholesterol so for now he is also putting me on meds to help the cholesterol, gonna wait and see though about the sugar. Guess I’ve gotta get my butt in gear and start eating better and breaking a sweat by exercising not just by sitting in the sun!

THURSDAY  August 4, 2011

Yet again today Jacob caused chaos to break loose in refusing to get up and go to school. I’m not sure why he hates it so much, he does extremely well and always reports having a great day. Also today Abi had a “Play Therapy” appointment. I really think that she enjoys meeting with Ms Lindsey each week. Only time will tell if we’re actually making progress. Which I totally believe we are. She is now making lots of noises, all she lacks is actually speaking which I hope and pray is just around the corner.

FRIDAY  August 5, 2011

TGIF! We made it through the first week of school despite going through hell each and every morning. The new routines and schedules seem to be working pretty well, but I am sure they will require some tweaking soon. My new way of life is becoming easier every day and I am accepting the fact that I just can not eat like everyone else. House is tidy and we can enjoy a weekend of family fun!
