Crazy Weather!

It started Tuesday night. A rumble here and there, a flash every once in a while. Then the drops started falling. Hard.

Got the kids to sleep, followed by ourselves to bed. The soft sound of the rain on our roof put us to sleep fast (ah, the joys of a one-story house!).

I woke briefly and was jut dozing off when BAM! A horrendous clap of thunder just about shook our 1268 square foot abode, sounding like it was coming from the new stadium about a quarter-mile away.

That's when I looked outside and saw the unending lightning strikes. Since our next-door neighbors have a HUGE oak tree in their backyard (picture a 45-50-year-old oak tree in a backyard- nearly taking up two backyards!), this made me very nervous. Enter my old friend, nervousness. It felt like an hour later I was finally asleep as the storm crept away, only to be awakened by... hail!

I quick checked my phone and was promptly relieved to find no tornado watch let alone a warning. I then rolled over and went back to sleep.

The next day made for some awesome cloud-sightings on my way to work and throughout the day. However, the storms apparently thought they were so awesome that they just HAD to come back and taunt us one last time. Lather, rinse, repeat. Except last night, we were able to avoid the hail. The lightning, I'm not sure about since I didn't look too much. I'd had enough nervousness for one week.

Well hello, and goodbye, May!

Now that it has been oh about 3.5 months since I posted here, too much has happened! Natalie turned 9 months old, began crawling like a little pro and sprouted 4 teeth at once, and Jessica is Jessica, running around and talking more and more each day.

At her 9-month checkup, Natalie was a little over 21 lbs so needless to say she has outgrown her bucket and is now in Jessy's big-kid seat from daddy's car. She is cruising now and what can I say, between work and two kids and my mom (she had surgery, but that's a whole 'nother post), I'm one busy CrazyMom!

And oh yeah, the job? Going beautifully. It had started out as a temp-to-hire position and blossomed from there. Since I had just come out I not one but two bad experiences with that type of work arrangement, I went into this one with much
trepidation. I quickly found out that the company is an awesome one and the boss? Well, she's awesome too. I have been hired on permanently and am now making yet another dollar more per hour.

Silly Sunday

Well I can't believe another weekend has already gone by! We spent some time chillin' out then cleaning house for BIL's birthday. You know, usual mom stuff other than grocery shopping. ;)

I'm feeling a little draggy since I woke up this morning with a sinus headache from H!ll. Fortunately it was nothing a little hydration and Zyrtec couldn't fix. Our perpetually-running heat (thanks, cold snap!) must have dried me up. Blech.

Ah well, enjoy a few pics of the sisters!

My first try mobile blogging! I finally got my iPhone 4s a couple of weeks ago and love it. I would even go as far as to say its my all-time favorite phone.

I am still learning tricks and tweaks but it is soooo user-friendly I can't complain. Most things I have been able to figure out on my own as far as using the thing. And now that I have discovered the Blogger app, watch out!

Hm all I need to do is figure out how to attach photos...

And I may have just done that. If you see a pic of Keith feeding Nattycakes then the mission is accomplished.

Anyway, if you have a smartphone, what is/are your fave apps?

365-Day Challenge

This is a Christmas-bell decoration on the door to our hall closet in the sun this morning.

Why, Hello 2012!

Sooooo... my intentions to blog more often just did not pan out as hoped. But that's for good reason- that job which I spoke of about 5 months ago? I got it back. :) Yeah, I'm happy about that. After all, the bank account says I must work, I may as well go back to something I like.

Between returning to work, still breastfeeding at least once a day, managing two under two, a now-teething Natalie and probably-soon-to-be-potty-training Jessica and... well, you get the idea. I have my hands full and love it!

Anyway, slacker here has added yet another crazy challenge. a 365-day blog challenge. I'm going to (try to, anyway) take a picture a day and post it here. It will be a little time-consuming and PIA at first since I don't have my iPhone yet ;) but once I get that my whole life will become easier. Blogging, Facebook, email, shopping lists, doctor's appointments, health/fitness progress, etc. will be there in the palm of my hand. Paper lists? Good luck finding a pen and good piece of paper in our house- and not losing it. Organizers? I've wasted money on tow different beautiful day planners that have only gone on to collect dust in my house b/c it is just too much for me to keep up with/carry around. Photo ops have been missed b/c of not dragging the ole' PNS camera around. Yeah, time for a change. ;)

With all that rambled, I wish you and your kin a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2012. May this be the best year of our lives.
