Werewolves do not like silver bullets

Werewolves have nothing to do with this post, but "bullets" do. Most of this may be boring to you.... I'm in a boring mood.
  • I am feeling much better. Thanks for all y'alls kind words. My throat is a little sore still, but I have more energy and actually went to Target yesterday. Thanks to my hubby for getting the kids up & ready for school all week. It was nice not to worry about that.
  • My brother got home safe and sound & got to talk to him. It was so nice not to feel like, "OK, I get to talk to him only today for Mother's Day or Christmas, so I have to squeeze in every little thing right this very minute..." I know I can call him up today. And tomorrow. And I can't wait til he gets a cell phone so he can start sending me movie quote texts again. Yes, we're dorks.
  • Tristan had a football game last nite that I didn't go to because it was far away and I had to Isabel and Alec to their things, but I guess he got hit with someone's helmet in his arm. It's all bruised and swollen. I'm glad I wasn't there. I'm such a Carol Brady when it comes to my babies gettin' hurt. The kid shouldn't be running into people's sides with his helmet anyway. That's a good way to break your neck. That's what scares me. These kids are 12/13. They don't know what they're doing. Ugh. Stress.
  • I've made $89.50 so far with my blog ads, so I really appreciate y'all ignoring them or leaving funny comments. My goal is to earn 1/2 of Sei's child support each month so 1/2 of my child support actually counts. Right now they cancel each other out. That's no fun.
  • http://www.swampbrat.blogspot.com/ is now http://www.swampbrat.net/. Don't worry- my blogspot address will still get you here. Just sayin'.
  • Livie is signing up a storm. She signs so much. She can talk, but most of the time I'm the only one that understands her & 1/2 the time it's because she does a sign with it. I love it!! She loves the Signing Time videos & can tell me which sign is coming up next on the video when she watches it. I taught some of the primary children at church the signs to a song and Livie was sitting at the table to other day and started signing & "singing" it. She wasn't doing it quite right, but I could pick up enough of the signs to figure out what she was doing! I'm so proud.
  • Liv's fave song right now is "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie. She'll sing "Dunt try. Dunt try...." as she signs "cry." Stinkin' cute.
  • I got some great good mail this week!! (And the list is finally full...)
So Grateful sent me a cute card and magnet. Help! sent me a funny magnet (click on the pic) and sweet card. And Yvonne sent me the only nice piece of mail I've ever received from Canada. (Kidding. Sei's ex lives there....) It had a really nice card that made my day, some candy, stickers and chocolate Clodhoppers that Sei already opened. Thank you so much ladies! I was kinda bummed about not getting to see my brother and y'alls mail helped make me feel better.

Glad you're feeling better! I had the same thing last week. And sorry you didn't get to see your brother. That does suck when you're so looking forward to it. The football thing makes me nervous too! You're right - they don't know enough yet to play that way. And it's got to be so cute to watch Livie signing!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

So cool you got your own domain!!! You rock!

Yay Liv! That is so awesome she is communicating so well!

You'll have to email me some info on the blog ads. I wouldn't mind making that kind of money for a few brief postings.

CHEL said...

Cool about the $89! Maybe I should check it out. Can you start a separate blog for ads or do I have to invade me own? I can always use more money for beads and ribbon... :)

Amanda said...

Glad to hear that you are feeling better! Yay for your husband helping out with the kids! :)

Uh, yeah, football would scare me too! Gymnastics is bad enough. What if they land wrong and break something!

That is so awesome about the money!! Way to go!!

Yvonne said...

I think that's so cute that Livie is signing--kids truly are little sponges.

Congrats on the $89--that's great.

I struggled through my oldest playing football--it's tough watching them get hit. I remember Steve Young at a BYU game where he was honored talking about his mom coming onto the field when he was either playing high school or Pop Warner football. I knew the feeling!!!

Suzanne said...

Look at all that fun Good Mail! So you have a new place, but the look hasn't changed! That's nice you didn't have to start completely over. What prompted the switch?

How cute with Livie! :D Signing is the best! "J" has loved doing it and sadly only signs rarely now.

No Cool Story said...

Good, you are feeling better :) And making $89. And getting cool GM. And have a singer at home. And your Bro the R.M. And your own new wed addy.

You are doing muy excellent :)

Kayelyn said...

Glad you are feeling better.

About the football thing- you just have to get tough or close your eyes. I close my eyes or hide behind my hands and just peek through.

Cause if I go on the field then I am in BIG trouble with my son. He cracked a rib once, has torn both of his MCL's, strained his ACL, and has taken many helmets to the hand. OUCH!! He still loves it.

Yay for your kids and their activities.

Colleen said...

Glad you're feeling better... and great about the ads! It looks like a pretty easy way to earn then.

aubrey said...

aubrey said...

Yeah for the serious earnings. Hip hip hooray for a brother returning home. Way to go for the super helpful hubby. A lot of great things happened this week to rule out the not so good.

Big Girls Don't Cry is Maili's favorite song, too! Sooo Cute to hear her sing....

Stepherz said...

You are making the big bucks now, chica! Nearly $100 per week! That's enough to maybe buy yourself something nice after you pay that child support! :-)
