I swear I'm bipolar. One day I am up and happy and ready to just have a great time. Other days, I am down in the dumps ready to cry at the drop of a hat. The latter is the day I have had today. I don't know why. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't been out of the house, other than to drop the kids off at my mil's house, for a few days now. I need to find a reason to leave this house. Unfortunately, A's bball is over for the summer, so I don't have that to go to three days a week. I usually complain about going, but I have met some new people and actually made a new friend, at least I hope I did.  Maybe she just thinks I am weird and only talked to me because she was too scared to walk away. Hmmmm....I guess only time will tell LOL!

My headaches haven't stopped lately, in fact, they are moving down my neck and behind my eye, which feels just wonderful!!! I love working all day and then just lying around with a headache all night. I swear my boys probably think the only thing I can say is, "be quiet, mommy has a headache!"  Though, M has left me alone....SCORE!

All of my "issues" have really got me to realize that I really need to start being alone with and seeking God more. I have been pulling away so much and it is just not working out for me. I miss Him and really need a good prayer session with Him.

Well, as a side note, how can I be so down when I have one of these to look at every day :)

Can You Say STRESSED!?!?

For some reason, I am so overly stressed lately.  What do I have to be stressed about?  I have no clue.  Nothing is going bad in my life.  M is still working, I am still working, the kids are better than ever, we are still paying our bills on time.  I have no idea what is going on, but today I feel like running away.  I am so tired and drained, but I haven't even done anything.  I think I need to up my meds or something cause I am goin insane!!! 

Anywho, A's baseball is into their tournament and we lost our first game.  We were on a winning streak there in the beginning and have, for some reason or another, fallen off the truck and just lost every single one of our last three or four games.  If we lose tonight, we are out of it, but I love my team and I think we rock it.  Such adorable little kids.  I really wish I could take every single one of them home.  We do have one parent on our team who has a terrible attitude.  She tells her child, "your team is sucking and you are going to lose!"  Totally sad.  Every time the poor kid is crying, I try to sneak in a few good words because the poor thing doesn't deserve to be put down.  Come on, they are only kids!  *sigh* why do I have such a heart for children who have mean parents.  I just hook onto them and pour the good vibes and words into them like a funnel.  I just hope that something I say really strikes a nerve. 

Church is going okay.  I still feel like something is missing and that we have lost our way.  It just feels like God isn't there.  I haven't heard him speak in a service for so long and it just breaks my heart.  I have been praying so hard that God will hear our prayers and fill us in on where M and I should be right now in our lives because I feel like we are in the wrong place. 

Well, I hear Mr. Baby calling from his crib and I still have a lot of work to do so gotta get!

Love to all and all to love peeps!

My Friday Night Date and Avatar

The kids were at Gmas tonight and Mike and I + little one went out to eat at my favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrell!  I love that place.  Come on, what better place can there be when you have shopping and a store mixed into one.  They really need to come out with a clothing store with a restaurant attached.  I should come up with that...I will keep you posted on that front (I know you will be on pins and needles just waiting!).  While we were at CB, I meant to take a picture of the best meal ever, but I snarfed it down way too fast to take time.  I always get biscuits and gravy with hashbrown casserole and a Diet Coke, of course.  Never fails, that is what I get.  I have found that whenever I change my routine at that place, I am always disappointed, so that is what I get EVERYTIME!  Can't possibly fail. 

After said BEST MEAL EVER, little one took a nap :)

On the way home, we decided to stop by a RedBox and rent a movie.  We wanted Shutter Island, but that wasn't in yet, so we got Avatar instead.  Unfortunately, I was not aware of how sad some parts of it were and I cried like a friggin baby! 
That pic, is of me after a good cry or two.  I have to tell you that Avatar is the best movie EVER!  I would love to see it on IMAX and in 3D.  I swear, a love story can get me every time.  I am in love with an Avatar :)  If it is ever possible to be turned into an Avatar, count me in.  Seven feet tall, blue skin, cat eyes and, most importantly, I can wear and work that ponytail :) 

Love to all and all to love peeps!

Another Day Another Issue Right?

Today has been a very long and stressful day here at the Oliphant household.  The internet was giving me issues this morning and I couldn't log on. I still have a few more dictations to do and some uploading of the work, but I will get done soon. 

The boys, minus Zachary, are spending the night at grandma's and papaw's tomorrow night, which will be nice, but poor Zach gets left out of everything since he is so little.  Andrew walked up to me last night and said, "Mommy, let me tell you something!"  "Mommy, you and daddy can go on a date when Caleb and me go to grandmas!"  He is so adorable.  I would just rather go to bed and sleep until Saturday morning, but whatevs, I can do with a meal!

I took Zach to the doctor last week and basically got blasted because he isn't even on the growth chart.  Basically, out of 100 babies, he is the smallest, maybe even smaller that a few of the smallest!  He is 15 months old and weighs 19 pounds.  He has always been small and I don't see him being a big boy any time soon, but the doctor told me to start him on PediaSure, which is expensive! I then have to take him back for a weight check in three months.  I have no clue what will happen if he doesn't gain any weight between now and then, but I am sure that the doctor will have an issue or two.  He also had a problem with the fact that Zach isn't talking.  Okay, so he says "ma" and "da".  Isn't that what a 15-month-old is supposed to do?  All I have to say is that he is walking around like mad and is as smiley as ever, which is about all that I need to brighten my day. 

Well, I better get to work again so I can get to bed some time soon!  Love to all!  God Bless and have a good time until then!

The Beginning!

Well, my first blog. I have never wanted to do a blog because I'm not funny in writing and I really have nothing to say, but what the heck, it's not like anyone is going to read this anyway right? So this is my blog! I will have something good to say, maybe, at some point in my life. I hope!
