Lobster, anyone?

Hannah and I went tanning today, and we both got red. It's not horrible, but just enough to be a minor discomfort. We are going to do a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday beautifying treatment so that by the time our guys get home we should have a nice glow to us :)

In other news, my neighbor diagonal from me is blatantly having numerous affairs while her husband is deployed, she doesn't even try to hide it. There is a different car in their driveway every time I take notice. No shame.

And...Power Point presentations can be a great way of expressing your annoyance. Everyone should try it some time. It's a great stress reliever.

Off to finish (hopefully) my history exam...and work on my psychology paper...and study for my psychology quiz that opened today...wish me luck homies.

Being Poor is a Blessing!!!

I checked my email this morning to find something from KHEAA (Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority)...and when I registered into the site this is what I got!!! So being poor is now a good thing...we not only get WIC but I have plenty of money for school, woohoo!!!

I have been working on them, yes...but the kids' behavior during the day and their sleeping patterns at night have not been condusive to me getting much work done.

I mowed the yard today and broke a sweat...which means spring is here!!! This excites me!

A picture is Worth a Thousand Words

The look on Alanna's face perfectly depicts the level of her mischief the past two days. The kids have been very happy, but VERY energetic.

All I did today was work on my paper for psychology...I had to pick a topic along the lines of child development and find RELIABLE resources (i.e. textbooks, scholarly journals, doctor articles, etc). I chose the benefits of breastfeeding as my topic, and I am hoping to focus on cognitive development and intelligence.

I ended up getting a horrible headache from staring at the computer screen all day, so I took a break and caught up on my DVR. I am finishing up my blog and going to study for my world civilization class...

Four-Year-Olds are INSANE

Alanna was a MONSTER today. She wasn't a screaming maniac or anything...she was as imp as they come though. I told her I was going out in the back yard to pick up some branches (from trimming our shrub yesterday). What did she do? Snuck out the front door and ran around back to "scare" me. Mind you, she is in her underwear. I had some phone calls to make about finding a dermatologist that does the Botox for hyperhidrosis...and she was being INSANE while I was trying to talk to various dermatology offices.

If anyone can tell me if they or anyone they know had had the underarm injections of Botox for excessive sweating...let me know. I want to know how long they last! I have tried everything from pills to prescription antiperspirants. It has been hell, and nothing worked for over a week for me. I have been dealing with this for 15 yrs+ and it is time it's rectified once and for all.

Well, off to study...

Bi-Polar Day

Today started off nasty. I got a nasty e-mail over absolutely nothing...the silliest thing in the world. The moral of the story is that if this person actually trusted me like they say they do, then my actions should not be questioned. End of story.

Then, someone commented my Facebook status with "why did you ever get married when you knew he would be in Iraq? All I hear from you is negativity". FIRST: HE IS IN AFGHANISTAN. Second: This person is NOT one to be preaching to ME about marriage! Third: My Facebook status is RARELY negative, only when I have had an emotionally or physically exhausting day, or when someone does something wretched to me and my feelings are hurt. I am not one to hide emotions, and if you don't like that, STOP READING MY $H!T!!! You don't like it, don't snoop on my Facebook and write me nasty crap! Don't read my blogs! You have an issue with me, CALL ME, IM ME, EMAIL ME...but do NOT embarrass me in front of my family and friends on my Facebook wall. Well, I removed said person (who has verbal dysentery) from my firnds list. Good riddance.So after all this I decided what the heck...I am going to go to church early. Even if I am just standing around doing nothing, at least I am around positive people who care about me more than SOME people (obviously) and they are total strangers. Since this is personal to me, and Hannah and I had some sacred, personal moments...I will not give you the details...BUT I became a Christian today. It's not like it was on my list of things to accomplish for the day, it's something that just HITS you like a Mack truck. I know some of you are reading this and rolling your eyes, but this is really important to me. This is important to my family. If you don't agree with it, fine. But this is what I believe in...and it is a big part of my life. I didn't join a cult, I became a Christian. I am going to be Baptised (again)...not dressed in some white frilly sack while my parents give me to some guy in a robe...not that there was anything wrong with my first baptism, I just don't remember it.

BUT I did develop quite a terrible headache from crying all morning...that even a Fioricet couldn't shake away. Hannah and I spent about 9 hours together with the kids between church and my house...where did it go? She tells me it's almost 7pm, then I looked at her and said "Yeah, the sun is starting to set Hannah, how did we not figure out how late it was?"

I love my life. I do. I just have to really let go of these silly things that people say and do...and give them to God to sort out. I struggle with that the most, my worries and fears overwhelm me sometimes, especially with the curveballs life has thrown lately. I am just lucky I have a friend that can shake me and say "Meg! Give it to God". She is so patient too, she knows just what to say and when to say it. What a gift.
