And she's off...

She's gonna get to think clearly.
She's gonna sit in a car for hours on end listening to her music and not hearing " he touched me!!"
She is going to eat a candy bar and not have to share.
  She may  even get to pee with the door shut and noone on the other end screaming.

Daddy on the other hand gets to experience a day or two in her life.
He gets to change the diapers, feed them, get em dressed.
Keep them from plotting evil against the world.

All while she basks in the sun on a beach,
on a sandless blanket and not a juice box for miles.

She's gonna have fun spending money on lacy things she can't buy with kids in tow
(" mommy why is that see through??!!" )

And she'll come home ready for snuggles and love and maybe even some whining.

Okay probably not the whining.

Have fun daddy.
Mama's hitting the road.

God Bless,
Say a prayer for blessing and protection over us if you would.

Although I'm excited I'm a little anxious as well!

I'm done.
It's all over for the next 2 yrs or so.
Is it ridiculous to mourn??
To wear black?
To cry if I happen to meet someone named Jamie?

Because I've finished the series ( one left to come out in a couple years).
I don't think I've been as obssessed with anything other than Anne Of Green Gables like this.

For the record the last time I mentioned the Outlander series I felt the need to go back and add an eta.  But I'm sure noone actually reread that post so I'll say it again.

This book is totally out of the norm for me.
I'm a goody 2 shoes.
This book is full of cursing, taking God's name in vain, etc.
It has-hmm, hmm,-LOTS of adult content (which in my weak mind I justify because they are married).
It has very disturbing and graphic violence.
It has many things in which I am morally opposed to.
Which is one of the main reasons I am a little scared that if it ever does become a movie I won't even be able to watch it!

All that being said,
the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon is one of the most intricately written, involving,
interesting, stories I have ever read.
They are loooong...and yet you feel like you don't get enough.
They are an amazing blend of historical fiction, romance and adventure.
Ther characters become real and yet the story is so unrealistic.
Gabaldon changes perspective throughout the novels.
From 1st person to 3rd seemlessly.
She writes with detail that leaves you smelling, hearing and seeing the scene.
Since it has always been a dream of mine to be a writer the details in this story appeal to me on that level.

I admit I've got issues.
  I even contemplated buying this:
Do I need help or what??!!

Anyways, rest in peace Jamie and Claire, I look forward to meeting back up in a couple years.
And forgive me friends and family that are considering putting me in the looney bin.
I promise if you read it you will end up there with me.

God Bless,

Our Independence/ Birthday weekend

Well I know it's been awhile since blogging when I have to log my info back in!!
Sorry peeps, time flies when you're having fun.
Or yelling at kids all day.
So My First born monkey celebrated a birthday the 4th of July. 
We spent the weekend at the family cabin.
It is an amazing blessing to have .

amazing cake.
Did you know angel food cake is naturally low in fat??
Ya, but don't worry we added a bunch.
Real whipped cream, with caramel ice cream topping whipped in.
Crushed heath bar on top. YUM. But you may puke after afew bites because it is SWEET.

He was pretty ticked because his little sister had caught about 4 before he caught one...

love the look on his face.

messy boy.

my pal Keri  and her daughter came up for one night!

All in all it was lovely.  Despite mosquitos.
We fished, rode bikes, played in the creek, ate yummy food, watched the Diamond Lake firework show.

My boy had a blast for his birthday weekend and that's what life is all about.

God Bless,
