I ate a whole box of chocolates on Thursday afternoon. Yep, a whole box. Well, thankfully, it only had 4 chocolates in it because if it had more - ugh! it honestly scares me to even think about it.
I found out that I won a writing contest that I had entered at the end of December. I am beyond excited. The prize is a blog makeover created by The Style Dragon. Kerri's Klutter will have it's own domain.
Gonna reign my own domain baby!
My husband took the day off of work on Thursday and took the boys out of the house all morning. What that left me with was an empty, quiet house in which I read and ate and read and ate and said "ahhhhh" a bunch of times(only when I could hear the harps playing though). BLISS!
I'm looking forward to taking my niece out to the dollar theater (it actually costs $2.00) to see New Moon tonight. She is 13. I have read the Twilight series and was not impressed with the movie Twilight. I have heard mixed reviews on New Moon. It saddens me that I am looking forward to seeing Taylor Lautner (he plays Jacob). He was born in 1992. That makes him 18. I am 32. I do realize that's just kind of gross but sadly it still doesn't change the fact that even if the movie is a waste of my time...it won't be a total waste of time.
I'm tiring of Facebook. I enjoyed reconnecting with high school friends but have not really maintained any continuing friendship since. It bothers me (because I think too much) that my facebook friend count says 139 and yet...yep...not really friends (in my meaning of the word) with all those 139 people.
I love when someone new "follows" my blog because it's like an open door. It's an open door to their page where I can check out their as well as all the cool blogs they have on their list. It completely amazes me how many people (men and woman) have blogs and how amazing these people are. Everyday I am finding more, learning something new, and loving this journey that's only just begun.
I have been working on a few things that I have on my life list. It's so exciting. Self-efficacy is rearing it's lovely energy. I love self-efficacy.
A few of the things close to being checked off are:
- Having 50 followers on my blog.
I'm at 34. I realize I could stay at 34 for quite some time but so far I've been getting closer and closer each week.
-Learn how to shoot a hand gun. Nail a bulls-eye.
I have been in contact with a member and a close friend of the owner of a local rod and gun club. He has recently informed me that I have the "OK" to stop by once the weather is warmer and start my learning process.
- Make a personal mission statement. Live by it.
I am working on this and working diligently. I am trying to convey myself, how I want to live and be remembered as well as what I want to accomplish in my life. I am learning it is very difficult condensing myself into a few paragraphs that will ultimately describe how I view life and it's path for me. I'm getting there. I can't wait to share it with everyone else.
-Run a 10k.
I am going to start running again on or around March 14th. I am excited and looking forward to getting outside. Spring is close. Goals are being set. Life is being lived.
And one last Friday Fragment:
I'm getting really sick of this cold and snow here in
Western New York.

I'm beginning to itch. Oops, left off the B there.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My youngest son Aidan is a year and a half old. He is beginning to really
talk. In the course of just a few weeks, his vocabulary seems to have doubled.
He is also becomming more animated, opinionated and vocal about what he wants, needs and thinks is hilarious.
He has said Da Da for quite some time. Now he says Daddy.
He rarely ever says Mommy or even Ma Ma.
I know that he knows I'm Mommy so that's not the issue. But he simply
refuses does not call me by that name.
When he does say it though it's as if he can't contain himself. His little face lights up. He seems to almost be bashfull about it. He's not a bashful baby by any means. So, when he says Mommy and then tucks his head down it makes my heart so happy.
He did it several times on Thursday after being out with Daddy all morning. He did it a few times yesterday.
I realized that I like it being an every now and then thing. I never know when his little voice is gonna peek out at me and say Mommy. And because I don't expect it, when I hear it, it's like hearing it for the first time.
Eventually, as he begins to say it more often it will lose it's surprise factor. It will become normal. I will become used to it.
But for now at least, it makes my face and heart smile every time I hear it.
