I also swept the kitchen floor, vacuumed the house, cleaned the kitchen, peeled potatoes, took a shower, and went to a viewing of a dear friend of mines. Jessi's grandmother took her place in the Lord's household last week and her viewing was today. It was a nice viewing with people telling tales of the good ol' days. I met a really nice preacher (he wasn't really a preacher) today. All dressed up and ready to go. I also was hit on by a 7 year old and an elderly man that wanted the 7 year old to find him a date...lol. I didn't bite do to the fact that I walked in on said elderly man patting other women's butts. lol. All jokes aside, I feel bad for the family. The pain on their faces was enough to jerk your heart out. I mostly hung out with the kids. They found me entertaining and I was slowing them down from running, screaming, and well hitting each other. Or at least I tried. I found it really nice that Jessi's work sent flowers. It's comforting to know that a growing business found time to honor their employee like that.
So I was all dressed up today. Couldn't really go to a viewing in sweatpants and a sweatshirt and all. It felt really good to get dressed up like that. I was talking about it with some people and said I always feel good all dressed up but I hate doing it. Does that make any sense? If I like it why don't I do it more often? I blame it on being a country girl. That's no excuse but at least I ain't to blame...lol.
Cody, Eric, my 2 cousins, and Dad went sledding on the hill across the road while I was gone. A good time was had by all. I walked in the door at about 7:40, Austin was asleep (I was like whaat?) and fed. Apparently he hit a growing spurt today and ate and ate and ate, with little to no spit up or other bodily functions (of the ucky nature). He's getting to be such a big boy. He has pretty much weaned himself off the bottle and formula. The bottle, I say more power to ya little one, the formula has me a little worried. I feel like he NEEDS those vitamins. So I put in a call to the doctor yesterday. They weren' THAT worried about it. Just said to keep offering it to him in a sippy cup and if he takes it great and if he doesn't that's okay too. I feel like Johnny 5 though, need more input. Do you remember that movie? Short Circuit? It's so 80's. I loved when he read the phone book in like 3 seconds. I always wanted to be able to do that. I don't know why.
Well I am done rambling for now. I think.

Today is the viewing of a close friends' grandmother. I had every intention on going, but, with this snow I'm afraid it won't stop in enough time. As of right now, we can't see the neighbors trees or the curve in the road. We've ALWAYS been at least able to see the curve no matter what.With this snow and the thick layer of ice after the first snow it should be some good sledding if I can drag Cody out there to sled with me. I don't know if I'll be able to get him out there or not. The kids these days aren't like when I grew up. If they canceled school we were outside by 9:00 a.m. Cody says it's too cold yesterday. I don't know about them. What happened? Where did the yearning to be outside and stuff go? I know it's not just my kid. I've talked to other parents and it's not. However, in the summer Cody is WAY more likely to go outside. Especially if there is a pool available. I just remember growing up when I woke up and had breakfast it was outside until dark, except to eat and go to the bathroom. I guess it's laziness??? It just really makes me wonder. Anyway, these are just things I think of from time to time.

Cody & Dad talking about it.
Cody & Dad making blueprints.
Austin is soooo going to be my problem child. He has such attitude at such a young age. He literally yells at me (well more like a growl really). It's funny, yet not funny. I dread the upcoming years. Makes me think about when he is a teenager if he will still have attitude....yuck I hope not..lol. He is such a wallower. He wallows me to death. It seems like sometimes that he has to be touching me at all times. It's cute yet annoying. He also started making the kissing noise today. It was so awesome. He's growing up so much. I want him to be little forever.
Austin laying on my feet.Eric and I are still really good. It's amazing how strong our marriage is. It seem indestructible. I am so glad that he is my husband and my children's father. I was at a birthday party this past week and I was the only who was happy in her marriage there. I was almost made to feel left out or ashamed that we have a good marriage. I didn't feel that way, I felt proud mostly, but, it was a little disturbing. Then I realized when I looked around the room that maybe due to circumstances I was a little more mature than the people there. I didn't care though. I just will have to be more careful about the surroundings that I allow myself to be in. Thankfully, Eric watched the kids for me so it was a nice break.

Austin and Cody were pretty good today. Other than naps, Austin only managed to pull two things down. Both of which were glass. Haha nothing broke for once. Cody was a little whiny today, probably just tired though. He's supposed to be in there sleeping and yet he's awake. We put him to bed almost two hours ago. Gotta love it!
There's a couple of pictures of them just hanging out today. Austin fell asleep on Eric's lap for a little bit. Well, until we told Cody it was time to go to bed that is. The OOooh I don't want to go to bed sorta woke him up. Cody was playing a video game.

I took some pics of the boys on Grandma's new couch. Here is a list of her rules for the new couch (I'm naming it Fred).

Oh yeah by the way I did cook supper so I guess that's another thing crossed off the imaginary list. Today I make a mental list of the things that I want to do tomorrow and I already accept the fact that from one circumstance or another I will not be getting my list done. So I prioritize. Vacuuming is a must. Getting dressed another must. Feeding the kids another must. And the boys need baths tomorrow night again. The other stuff will just have to wait. Most of it is stuff that I wanted to get done for myself. It seems that I run out of time always when it comes to me. I need a day. I have a brand new movie that I want to watch but I refuse to do it until I can sit and quietly watch the whole thing by myself. Selfish?? Maybe to some but to those other Mommies out there I know you know what I mean. I find myself plucking my eyebrows while I pee. Hey don't laugh it cuts down on time in the bathroom (the time that it seems everyone needs something). Maybe tomorrow I will pee in peace but I doubt it. lol.
