I have been really crappy about posting lately. I vowed to myself that I wouldn't let this become a cutesy pinch my kids cheek blog, or just update everyone in general. I am trying to get back into my groove of writing, partly because my sanity is depending on it. I notice when I write I am generally in a better mood and my family will probably thank me for beginning to write again because I just can't stand it anymore. I am to the point of pulling my hair out, climbing in my closet and just crying. Why you may ask I have no idea! Thats why I should probably start writing again, it gives me insight into what is really going through my head. Right now as I try to write I have my husband looking over my shoulder, my daughter yelling I did it and doing some crazy exercising move and yet I am still concentrating on the task at hand. Writing to relive my frazzled brain and attempting to not go psychotic! Hey I never said that I was the least bit sane.
Why is that when you go to the store you always find the lunatics? I encountered a lady today while trying to find the perfect head of lettuce. I am minding my own business when a lady in her late 40's I would say approaches me. She starts going through the lettuce herself and talking to herself, this is what I hear.
Hmm too many roaches... I am sitting here thinking what the hell are you talking about lady, roaches? I am trying to keep the laughter inside as I realize this lady is bat shit crazy. The next head of lettuce she picks up she screeches and tosses it in my direction. Morbid curiosity or plain stupidity makes me engage in a conversation with her. She tells me her name is Peachy (I am hoping that it is a nickname) and she plans on making a salad tonight for dinner. I told her that sounded like a good idea, to which her response was: "It would be if there weren't so many bugs in lettuce, the government is trying to kill us with super roaches that attach to our brains!" At that point I back up slowly with a head of lettuce in my cart and walk as fast as I can in the other direction. At least someone was able to make me feel a little more sane today!

Life has finally settled down and I have had time to sit down and blog. It feels like it has been years. SM is 6 months old already has two teeth working on crawling and just looking like a little man! MS talks circles around you and never seems to sit still for longer than two minutes. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Still working as a bouncer and I really enjoy it sometimes but other days its UGH dealing with drunk people is not my forte' thats for sure. SM is really enjoying his carrots he gets to eat for the week, last week was squash and he loves to pile in the food. Before I know it they are going to be gone and I will have to cry!

We have settled in and gotten a pretty good routine down (cross fingers that it continues) and chaos level has definitely started to diminish. SM is three weeks old now, I can't believe how fast the time goes. He is a pretty good baby only crying when he really needs something, not for unknown reasons. Breast feeding got off to a rocky start because he was not wanting to latch on correctly with an end result of injuring me. Everyday we still try breast feeding but I usually end up pumping and giving him a bottle. He just doesn't seem to want to do it. I will pump as long as it takes and its really not too bad anyway because this time around a got a decent pump. MS is adjusting well to her little brother, wanting to throw away diapers and hold him. She now carries around a monkey and puts a diaper on it... Imagine on/off with this diaper for hours on end, oh well keeps her entertained, quiet, and happy! Every couple days we go somewhere so I don't go stir crazy in the house! Last night I left the kids with my mom and went out with M to work and had a blast, I called my mom every thirty minutes but when I returned they were still breathing, sleeping, and didn't kill here in the process either. It was a nice three hour break that was something fun. Started school last Wednesday-I love my teachers and can't complain one bit about them. Well there is the update I have MS screaming eat eat eat and my boobs are now leaking... Oh joy!
