Kitty Birthing Supplies and Birthing Box Ideas

Helloooo! I thought I would share with you the supplies and birthing box you will need if you have a pregnant kitty cat. With spring fast approaching, there will be tons of pregnant females popping up, so its important to know how to properly care for them. 

It's Ok Thursday!

Its Ok Thursdays

Happy Thursday Friends! Time for another.. It's Ok Thursday! 

Its ok that yesterday I was feeling horrible. Thankfully I got some rest and feeling better!
Its ok that it still sucked waking up early today! But Jackson was in a good mood which put a smile on my face bright and early this morning!
Its ok that I have a lot to do today. I have to go to the market and pick up a few groceries.. need to run by CVS and I also need to pay some bills too. Yuck!
Its ok that I am still dying for spring to get here. If Scott is making me stay in this state.. spring could at least hurry up!
Its ok that I am not so fond of the American Idol finalist. Hopefully the guys are better tomorrow. I find it just ok at this point.
Its ok that the kitchen needed mopped today but I totally put that on this weekends to do list.
Its ok that this month has just flew by. Time passes so fast anymore.. why is that?

Its ok that those yappy dogs have been barking for hours on end. I don’t understand what is going through their heads. Do they not realize that those little flea bags are waking up the entire neighborhood?

Its ok that we still don’t have kittens yet.. but they will be here any day! Super Super Excited!

Its ok that I am still hunting for some new video editing software. Nothing stands out to me at this point.. Do you have any recommendations?
Its ok that I didn’t make any of the beds yesterday. Nope.. I didn’t see the point with husby home. Because he was in bed all da off and on napping!
Its ok that Brandon has still not heard anything from the military. He is getting a little worried though. He wants to join and just waiting on them to say ok!
Its ok that I really didn’t make desk time this week.. grrrrr.. In our home if I don’t keep the mail sorted.. papers filed.. and desk cleaned off.. things get out of hand superfast. I wonder who else has family desk problems!?
Its ok that Jacksons progress report came in.. He is doing good in everything but math. Its hard to get mad at him when I see him trying. I suck at math.. so maybe I am not the best tutor!

Have a great day!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

* Yawn * I have been so tired since about 6pm. I don't know what is going on with me but it sucks! I thought today would be pretty productive but I didn't get that much done today with husby home. We just hung around the house today for the most part.

Hi, I hope you had a lovely day. Around here I stayed pretty busy cleaning. I kept checking things off my to do list. By time I was finished I was pretty tied and by about 7pm.. I drifted off to sleep for over an hour. I didn't cook.. instead we all had corn dogs and I also had a loaded sweet potato that was out of this world. Husby didn't get home till close to 9 but he is home all day tomorrow. He is taking Jackson to school tomorrow which is the only reason I am up so late. I am doing better with the sleeping.. I guess I have been really tired.. combined with a few sleeping pills and maybe a glass of wine has been knocking me out. Today it wasn't too hard to get up but I was lucky enough to be home and work on my own schedule. But I did get a lot done and it feels great to have a few of the bigger jobs done! 

Gabby is still huge.. no kittens yet. But she is close. I plan on doing a couple of videos tomorrow including one for the birthing box and also one for a review.. But she is being very affectionate and could go into labor at any time. I am a nervous wreck and watching her minute by minute. I even hate leaving the house right now. The entire house is on kitten watch!! Gabby couldn't be more loved! Even for Scott one of the first things he does is always check on her. I could even feel them moving earlier tonight! Woooo-hoooo! I am hoping for 3 boys and 2 girls...but who knows!! 

Tomorrow its just going to be husby and I laying around the house taking it easy. Its exactly how Scott wants it to be. He just wants to be home and taking it easy.. BUT he said he has to take a conference call in the morning but I won't be up to have listen to it. He also said he was going to catch up on some of the shows he missed this past week too. Gotta love DVR'S. I am hoping to get the videos made and uploaded and I also hope to clean the living room a little better too. But we are going to enjoy being home together! Hes been working so many hours that we really miss him. I miss him. 

I hope your day went wonderful. I plan on answering a bunch of blog comments tomorrow.. so stay tuned! 

Talk to you soon!

Tuesday Tips and Tricks! - Sponge Ice packs -

DIY clean ice pack

With a house full of little kids in the summers these little ice packs work great. There is always a kid who hurt themselves from playing too rough outside. You can find the cheap sponges at the dollar store and grab a bag of good ziplocks before you check out and your set!

We keep a shelf in the door in the freezer full with little ice packs.. and they come in handy all the time!

Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

Waking up to Thunder..

Good Morning! Time to rise and shine... however there is no sun shinning around here today. We are back to thunderstorms. It was actually a little hard trying to get Jackson to school because it was coming down so hard. Before we left, Jackson was begging me to let him go back to bed on this rainy day. He couldn't miss school no matter how badly I wanted to yes to him. So we chatted along the way and on the way home I was talking to husby who said the weather is worse. Great! Looks like a day I will be staying home unless it dries up some. Thankfully we got a kitchen full of food.. the cats and dog have everything they need so hopefully I can stay in and stay dry. This is what the weather looks like for the rest of the day..

Frz Rain
Rain/Freezing Rain
Rain and freezing rain this morning...thundershowers possible for the afternoon. Thunder possible. High 49F. Winds NNE at 10 to 15 mph

So its going to be we all day long around here. I might end up going back to sleep for a while. However I got up pretty easy today and I feel awake right now. So I might just end up getting Jacksons room cleaned. I hate the way he cleans so I like to do it myself. It sure is messy in there.. and hopefully today I will get it all cleaned up. I am trying to focus on getting rid of the clutter and getting rid of all the shit we don't use. Its amazing how much crap we accumulated over the years. Stuff we don't even need or use. So I will be filling up even more trash bags today with more junk. I think sometime this weekend, I am going to call Goodwill to come pick up old clothes and other donation items too. I don't even want to think about going through all my clothes that I don't want anymore. ... talk about a big job! 

So Jodi Arias is back in court in just a few hours. I wonder if the jurors are getting tired of seeing her on the stand for days in and days out. I can't believe how well she is holding up against the prosecutor. I doubt today will be any different. I think we both are wanting that " wow " moment of her testifying but so far its been pretty much the same as before. She doesn't remember.. she loved him.. and she didn't want to kill him. Who knows that the jurors think at this point. And they still have all the experts to get to also. This trial is exhausting me and I am only watching! Imagine living it. 

Hope you have a wonderful day. I am going to go get another cup of hot coffee..go through my to do list and figure out what the day holds! Brandon did go to work today so I guess he will be home with us this weekend!!

More Tea Please!


Helloooo! I hope you are all having a great night. Around here the house is shut down and I am blogging from bed. Which is seriously one of my most favorite places on earth! I was ahead of the game tonight. I got a early bath... I think I was in there around 7pm.. then I finished up dinner.. ate with the boys and waited on husby to get home. He was playing in a bowling fundraiser for a little girl with cancer. His boss sponsored a bunch of the guys to do it.. so it was a little later than normal. Honestly it was the last thing I wanted after him working so many hours this past week but he couldn't get out of it. 

Manicure Monday : Pink Princess Polish

Monday, February 25, 2013

I did a base coat.. then I did 2 coats in this 

Essie - Pink Diamond - Polish.. I let it dry and then took the 

Essie glitter polish in 

I kinda did a gradient effect with more on the tips than at the base. Then I topped it with clear coat and was done. 

Super fast and super simple!

Monday Movie Review { Anna Karenina }

Time for another Movie Review! I have been watching a lot of movies lately and it wasn't so easy to figure out which one to review tonight.. but I had to go with

Anna Karenina
Here's what the movie is about..

The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office successes Pride & Prejudice and Atonement, is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy's timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her. -- (C) Focus

Monday Help...


Good Morning to you all! I don't know about you.. but I need a lot of help in the morning hours!! I have to remind myself every early morning... that I am blessed to be alive and awake. And believe me, waking up and feeling happy and blessed is not an easy for me. I am normally a super grump in the morning hours. I got to sleep at a reasonable hour last night so I am not too tired today. Dozing back off does sound pretty good to me though! And maybe I will!!! I feel like I have so much time with all the long hours husby is working. He doesn't even get home till after 8. So I don't get in a hurry like I use to. Now I can take my own time but we miss him so much.

I don't know what today holds. I was hoping to stay home all day but I am going to have to go out and get Gabby some more food. I didn't realize we were close to being out otherwise I would have got it yesterday. That seems to be the only errand I will have to run today. Besides that.. I am just staying home and working around the house. I need to vacuum the house and clean Jacksons room today. I still have all that fish food to clean up. Thankfully husby took the vacuum apart from top to bottom yesterday... fixed it.. and cleaned it so its working great now.. Thank goodness! If we don't have a working vacuum around our house, we would be in serious trouble! I am putting off buying a new one until I just have no choice. Scott suggested I just go buy a really nice and charge it. Ummmmm... NOOOOOOOOO!!! I am not about to make a ton of payments for something I can just get at Walmart. But we are still holding on to our old one! Thank you baby for fixing it again!

Well I am going to get a refill on my coffee and try to figure out what the day holds. It might be a quick nap until about lunchtime. But I might get up and get busy too. Who knows!

I hope you have a great day! I'll be back soon!

Late Night Hellooooo!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Its late and I should be in bed but I am just getting where I can settle down and relax.. so I figured I would blog for a few minutes before I drift off to dream land! (:  The entire house is sound asleep. They have been for hours. It makes me feel so good when everyone is in for the night. I wish Brittany and Zane was here too. But the boys are sleeping like babies. I stayed up and got a lot of stuff done.

Come Shopping with Me!! { Video }

Saturday, February 23, 2013

I had to go out and do some shopping today and I decided to take you guys along with me! 

( BTW.. the picture above is from a different trip! ) 

I got in and out.. 

Loaded up the car..

And headed home.. 

Here's the video.. and there are pictures below! 

I didn't do much shopping but got enough to get us through for a few days..

I also got some new kitty cat food. This is fresh food that has to be refrigerated.. 

I got this which is kinda like kibble.. 

And then these little cups of food..

I then got some of Gabby's favorites..

Thankfully I did because so far all the cats are turning their noses up to the fresh food. FIGURES.. (: But maybe after a few days they will feel different about it. I plan on doing a full review later. 

After I got home.. I got the refrigrator cleaned out.. That was a huge job but I feel so much better now. I got everything put away and even made a quick dinner. 

Now I am working on cleaning the downstairs bathroom during commercials! Little by little..

Weekend Thoughts..

Why Can’t I ever get to sleep at a reasonable time? I seriously think I need to get back to the Dr and have more sleep studies done. I am willing to do anything to fix this problem of mine. Hopefully this glass of


Moscato will help make me sleepy.

 The picture above was taken by Jackson! It came out pretty good huh! (:

Gloomy Friday


Its another gloomy day around here. BUT. we are handling it right because Jackson and I are both still in our pjs! We both slept in and actually Jackson is still tired and in my bed. I am hoping he dozes back off for a little while so he will be in a better mood later. 

So another Zane update.. Right now we are leaving tomorrow night. This roller coaster of emotions is starting to get a little old. I wish everything would just sort itself out. Thank you for the emails that have came in about this. I just can't really say a lot because I don't want to say too much about Zanes mom on here out of respect for him. However I will say from day one its been a struggle to handle this situation. We use to really not get a long but we are doing better now. But honestly.. we just want whats best for Zane. And to be even more honest.. we think that is our house. I think Zane will thrive here where he can just focus on school and not have to be so grown up. Travel times have changed again. Husby doesn't feel he can leave work early on Saturday. So now we are moving on towards leaving Saturday late evening.. and return on Sunday night/ Monday morning. It should be a looong and exhausting ride. Not to mention.. costly. 

So today I need to focus on cleaning Jacksons room. I will have him help but my son doesn't clean like I want. Let me tell you.. I went up the ladder to the top bunk to put on some clean sheets and there was a bottle of fish food up there. I pick it up.. and gold fish flakes go flying every where. The lid wasn't screwed on..And I was so upset that I just walked out and figured I would clean it up later. So that is on today's to do list too. And I am not even happy about it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....there is fish food every where!!!  Thank goodness the vacuum is fixed.

Its really nasty outside and I don't really want to leave. I might have to go pick up some dinner later but its cold and nasty out. I have the fireplace going and its still cold in the house. All the animals are sleeping and its dark in here. If I plan on doing anything productive today, I am going to have to change that. I also have a TON of laundry waiting on me to put it up.. which I also hate! (:

Well I will be back later.. when I have some of the things checked off my to do list.. Right now its time to check emails.. YUCK!
