Love grows best..

Alright, I went to the Chiropractor and had some work done. My twitch is doing much better. She thinks its related to stress. That, and my wart. The body does funny things when you are under stress (including storing belly fat, I win). To this fact my husband says "What do you have to be stressed about?" **insert testicle punch here** But he's actually right. For whatever reason I'm not getting too worked up over things lately. In a 24 hour period yesterday Moses ate chalk, toothpaste and gum. I shattered a huge jar of honey then we went to the store for more honey and Magnus shattered a huge jar of elderberry juice. I have the purple sock to prove it. Moses dumped and redumped coffee on the table and fed a pineapple chunk to our fish (Yadier Molina Snowy the 2nd). And I was all like, "Isn't life great? Can we adopt a baby, Zac?" I wonder if my sweet husband isn't slipping me an upper in my V8 splash..

I don't know, I just feel so completely happy right now. Could it be our teeny tiny house that we appreciate more than ever now that we are moved back in? Love grows best in little houses. Is it the fact we have never had LESS money? God is showing us wonderful things through our being poor. Is it Zac being proud of me for school, and me being so thankful for all his support? I don't know but every day he gets a liiiiittle sexier :) Oh, maybe he's slipping me ruffies..

I didn't make any real resolutions this year but it seems others have given me some hints. One girl at work in casual conversation said "Now come on Onnalee, you were young once too!" Excuse me! I am young. I mean, take away the Chrysler Pacifica, my big diaper bag, Dr Scholls inserts, and my chronic back problems and you have a hot young momma lol. 2012 Act younger, Check. Next, A guy at work was guessing people's weight (danger danger). But he had guessed three peoples correctly so I thought why not? He guessed I weighed 185 POUNDS! Now there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with being 185 pounds. But not when you are 160! I'm already self conscious as it is..2012 lose weight, Check. I came in from school the other day wet from the rain carrying my huge bag of books. The weight of my textbooks has broken the straps so I just carry it "like a trash bag" so says Zac. He looked at me kinda pitifully and asked that I step it up a little. We can afford a new backpack. Little does he know this bag lady will be scouring goodwill for one tomorrow. 2012 Step up my appearance, Check.

That's all the change I can try and squeeze in for now. Anatomy class if filling up any other useful space in my already crowded head. I hope this semester flies by super fast. There is so much to learn. All these body parts and cell slides to memorize. How in the world am I supposed to keep up with my continuous reading of the Twilight Saga? No, I'm doing okay on that. Although Ive lost count of how many times Ive actually read it. Its more like a continuous cycle now. I'm sure there is a term for this kind of problem, Edwarditis? hehehe..

Until next time!

A whole lotta LOVE

Now, wait. Didn't I say I was going to have more time to blog on break? NOT! Ah well, I have been enjoying the family time of the little wild men. And I mean wild. Magnus has turned from whatever 3 year old we knew to a jumping, yelling, Tasmanian, who only talks to us to tell us we are "MEAN". If I have to hear that word again, I might go insane. Which, coincidentally may be happening as I have developed an eye twitch. Yep, a real crazy, eye twitch. I have a theory other than the relentlessness of my daily life. I hit my head on a window frame while coming up from looking for a shoe under the bed. Hard. Think the "bend and snap", from legally blond. I seriously crumpled to a pile of tears on my bed. I still have a huge sore spot. So, I am positive in my amateur diagnosis, that I have nerve damage due to window trauma. Either way, I'm stuck for now with my crazy cat lady (in my case dog) eye twitch.

What do you do when you have a barking dog that you threaten to run over on a daily basis? You get another one! I, while at PetCo replacing our dear fallen beta fish (Yadier Molina Snowy), met the world cutest, most CALM, puppy. A wiener dog just like ours. I promise she or Jesus spoke to me. She is a rescue dog from a mill and I feel it is our duty to save her little life :) And her name is Vanna, I can not help it. Zac, is positive I hit my head harder than we thought. I will keep you informed on her future.

The boys have been doing their best to destroy our clean smelling house on a daily basis. But we will not be shaken! 2 nights ago I am cleaning up the kitchen and Zac yells for me. He is trying to explain mystery poop from the front of Magnus leg. No one knows how it got there, but they are afraid. He goes to the bathroom in the toilet and all is well. Then I hear loud gagging (think calling dinosaurs). I run in and Zac has found more poop on a bath cup and a towel. What in the world?! We recovered. Fast forward. Last night Moses pooped out of his clothes. I take his stuff off and line him up at the bathroom door to wait for a bath because Daddy is in there #onebathroomstinks. Moses proceeds to tell me he pottied on the floor "I potty, I potty" So I am searching for the puddle and Magnus comes flying around the corner and slips in a huge pile of potty. I run to him and Moses runs to us and Zac basically finds us all lying in a huge pile of potty on the floor.

School is about to start and I am not even close to completing my list of pinterest projects! But I have been enjoying the amazing weather. Jesus must know I suffer from seasonal depression and he's helping me enjoy a couple more weeks. I have some resolutions that Ill share soon. One being to dance with my kids every morning. So, I'm off to go move it move it, and shake it shake it!

P.s.. In the short amount of time it took me to write this little diddy. Moses has dumped and eaten raw oatmeal, cleaned the toilet (however he did use the right spray), and squirted half my grapefruit dish soap on a cookie sheet. It does however smell remarkably less like pee in here though..hmm..

Much Love
