Time for a trim

Hello again everyone!

Earlier today I asked my son if he’d like me to trim his hair, since now it is starting to get into his eyes, and he said yes. This surprised me because usually he’s very picky about his hair. Last year he wanted it long then we shaved it because I had a friend trim it for him and they did a horrible job and it looked like he took scissors to his own head. Since then I haven’t let anyone near his head unless they have experience cutting hair.

I wanted to say sorry for not getting to the random question of the week on Monday. To be honest I forgot. Getting into a new habit is tough at first because you’re not used to it. That is especially true for me. I’ll get better at it, just give me some time.

I hope you are all ready for February. I’m excited for it because this blog turns 1! Have any of you done anything fun or silly for your own blogs birthday? I’m thinking of doing a look back or reflection. What do you all think? Yay or nay?

Random question time!

So I’ve been thinking of doing a random question of the week. I figured, why not?

So this weeks random question is:

What is your favorite time of day? Morning, afternoon, evening?

I have to say my favorite time is the evening. Because that means that I get to unwind from the day and I get some much needed me time after the kids are in bed.

Please let me know in the comments what your favorite time of day is and why.

See you again soon 🙂

I get to keep them for now.

Yesterday I told you about how I was going to a specialist to see if I need to have my tonsils removed or not. Well I saw him today and I told him about my recurrent strep. We decided to wait and see if I end up getting strep one or two more times. If I do then I will get them removed, but for now I’m keeping them. He did tell me that a tonsillectomy isn’t very fun to recover from and that it may take me 1 or more weeks to recover. Which, as you all know, in my life would be tough on my family.

Other than that dr appointment, my day was rather normal.

No more tonsils?

So tomorrow I’m going to a specialist to see if they would recommend me getting my tonsils removed since I have had reoccurring strep throat. To be honest, I would like to avoid surgery. But I’d rather not need to have the surgery later. I’m nervous, from what I have gathered recovering from a tonsillectomy at my age can be hard. Yes I know I’m not that old but still. If they tell me that I need it then alright I’ll do it. I just hope I’ll recover just fine. I’ll keep you all posted when I find out tomorrow.

Have any of you had your tonsils removed? How was your recovery time? Any advice? Please let me know.

Almost a New Year and Thank you!

Oh how time flies! It’s almost 2015, where did the year go?

So I’ve been super busy this winter break with the family. The kids have been sick, so have my boyfriend and I. It hasn’t been too bad, but not fun either.

Christmas is over and I’m kind of glad it is. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. I just don’t like how commercialized it has become. I believe Christmas is about being with loved ones and enjoying the love and happiness that comes along with it. Sure, the presents are an added bonus but that shouldn’t be the main idea.

So with the new year comes new year resolutions. I have a couple that concern this blog. (Nothing bad I promise)

1. I’d like to post more often. Perhaps twice a week. How about once a week to start and we’ll go from there. I don’t want to make any promises I can’t keep.

2. I’m wanting to learn more about WordPress and start experimenting more with some of the features I have available to me.

Those are my resolutions for here. As for personal resolutions I haven’t thought of any just yet. If I come up with any I’ll post about them.

With the close of 2014 I want to say thank you to all of my readers. I know I don’t post much, but you’re all ok with that. THANK YOU for being so patient with me and I hope to bring you more posts with the new year.

Have a safe and wonderful New years!

Teen Creed

I have had this creed since I was a teen and it has always meant a lot to me. I didn’t always follow it, but it helped me through some tough times. So I figured I’d share it with all of you. I don’t know who wrote this so I can’t give them credit.

Don’t let your parents down …
They brought you up.

Be humble enough to obey …
You may be giving the orders someday.

Choose companions with care …
You become what they are.

Choose only a date …
Who would make a good mate.

Don’t show off when you drive …
Drive with safety and arrive.

Guard your thoughts …
What you think, you are.

Be a master of your habits …
Or they will master you.

Don’t let the crowd pressure you …
Stand for something,
or you will fall for anything.

I hope that if I have any teen-aged readers that this will help some of you. Being a teen is tough, but believe it or not you are not alone.
