I have had a really rough past couple of days.
I am using my blog as a place to write and hopefully by the words I write they can be used as a coping mechanism.
I looked up the definition of MENTAL BREAKDOWN and this is what is said;
Mental breakdown (also known as nervous breakdown or snapping) is a non-medical term used to describe a sudden, acute attack of mental illness such as depression or anxiety.
All of this lovelyness was all triggered by a panic attack that was triggered by a really bad, painful day.
I don't know if any of you have ever had a panic attack, but oh my heck, I have never been so scared in my life. If my hubby wouldn't have been here, I am pretty sure that I would have passed out.
My pain has been off the charts lately! Holy Crap I don't know what the heck is wrong with me!
All I have done is cry, hyperventilate and pray!
I am really hoping that all of this happening to teach me something, to show me something, to allow to me see something in a different way.
Whatever the reason may be, I am hoping and praying that is over soon!
If you are all in the dark about my whole pain thing-go here and you will know what the sam heck I am talking about.
I am sure some of you are thinking-why are you blogging?
I am doing this for some normalcy.
My life has been so unnormal for the past 2 days, I need something to keep me from thinking that I am not losing my mind!
I am sure that there are people out there who deal with this all the time.
Oh, how my heart aches for you.
I am freaking out with all that is happening to me, and I can only imagine if it happened all the time!
I know that this is a really downer of a post-I don't usually do this-but I needed somewhere to go where no one would judge me, question me, call me a freak, but accept me and maybe, just maybe help me.
I love my blog, better yet, I love my friends that I have gained because of it. You are all so great and reassuring. I am blessed because of you. I know that there are many of you, that I have never seen and probably will never meet face to face, but I like to think that one day, I will meet you-even if it's in Heaven. Then I can tell you thanks and give you a hug!
Sorry to be so sappy-you know-just one of those days. I appreciate you all listening, or in this case, reading. You all get gold, no pink stars in my book!

Preface-this blog contains lots of grammatical errors. If you hate that-I will apologize now-but read it anyway!
OK I have decided that I am the most green person on the earth!
So-a little bit of white spray paint, modge podge and cute paper and voila! I used a little ribbon too. I loved how it turned it out! What do you think? It was a lot faster than I thought it would be. I have never done modge podge on a large piece before. Way way easier than a little thing. So, now I have a new junk thing that I love.
OK-here is the jewelry box, a rack with pegs ($1.00)and a table. The table was actually a bar stool with the legs painted bright yellow!!
I was thrilled with how all of this turned out also!
The best part? I did this all in one day! It didn't even take me all day.
I even cleaned my whole house, made dinner and did 3 loads of laundry! I am so not bragging. I just figure that this day makes up for all the lazy, crappy, "I don't feel good days!"
OK-I have one more thing to show you! A festive, fourthy kind of thing. I made it out of tins. You know the kind that cookies and popcorn come in. Got these at goodwill also! Spent a total of $7 bucks on all of them! YEA!! I loved how they turned out! I am going to put them above my kitchen counters. The bucket is for my kitchen table. I am going to use it to hide a vase so I can show off my roses that I cut down last year to the ground. They came up huge and beautiful. Who knew that if you cut the crap out of roses-they do better! Huh?
I know that this is really long post. I had a lot to say and show. What can I say. I love it when other people post stuff like this. It gives my creativity a kick in the butt. So, I hope I do the same! Have a happy night!!! Go craft something! Don't forget the diet coke and chocolate. It helps, look what I did with it!! OK-enough talking I promise!!

And I know that you all want me to win!!! And you can win too. (a little more likely than me.)
So go go go, Hurry now and then come back and read the rest of this post! It's worth it!
OK-so the rest of the post.
We, as a family went here yesterday. Lagoon-a local amusement park.
It was free. Hubby had a work day= free tickets/
So we went. The kids had never been.
It was great fun! The kids loved it.
Mom and sister and brother in law came too.
So glad that they were there.
We hit all the rides for the kiddies.
Not really a ride girl-since they all have bars that go across your stomach-tight. These hurt me, not to mention the whole jerking motion thing.
We were waiting in the last line of the night. The girls wanted to ride the boats.
So, they waited and they 3 started yelling.
I ran over and she said,
Mom-that kid spit on me!
That boy spit on me!
I turned to the little boy and asked if he spit on her.
He said yes.
I continued to say to this stupid little 6 year old who spit on my kid that if we don't spit. It is mean and I don't like it.
I then asked him if he wanted me to spit on him.
He shook his head and said No!
I yelled-DON'T SPIT ON MY LITTLE GIRL AGAIN! UNDERSTAND?
He shook his head.
His mom walked over.
Your kid spit on my little girl.
She just looked at me.
She didn't speak English.
Of course not.
Hell-why should you have to speak English if you live in the United States of America. Our main language is English. Why should you have to learn how to speak it, you stupid lady!
I said to her:
You need to teach your son not to spit and learn to speak English!
She just looked at me and walked away!
I was so mad! The stupid lady didn't teach her kid not to spit and then she couldn't even understand me yelling at her! Damn!
Sorry for the swearing! I am still so ticked.
So-this is my new rule!
If you don't reprimand your children-I will!
Especially if your stupid child spits on my 3!
So any of you Mom out there-make sure that your kids don't spit on others-if they do-smack them and tell them not to do it EVER again or I will come and yell at them!! :)
(sorry for the rant, I guess if you can't rant on your own blog-where can you)
If I offended any of y0u-I'm sorry. I am kind of onery and having a bad day. You all just got to read about it! :) Hope you all still love me!! Really-you do, right?!

Ok-So I am having to go throught this morning because I had children on purpose.
Really-I love my girls, but WHAT WAS I THINKING!
Did I not think that we would ever have an attitude?
Did I not think that would comminicate without whining?
Did I think that my days would be full of giggles and pink all the time?
6 is doing the dishes. She is freaking out because she can't put a bowl away. Instead of just saving it for later-she MUST come down and do a dramatic whine of how the bowls just can't possibly be put away. I ask a question to make sure I unserstand. She howls, yells and whines that I am not listeing to her.
I then repeat what I just said and she says- yes-why don't you ever listen to me?
Really-isn't that what I just said.
3 is changing her clothes already. We are on outfit number two. She has only been dressed for about 10 mins.
I asked why she didn't keep the first one on-
(In a whiney voice half yelling) the other one hurt me!!
Ok-I did you put them away in the drawer?
Are you sure?
Mom-why do you have to ask so many questions?
Excuse me 3-I am sorry that I would try to be a parent!
Relax Mom! It's going to be ok!
I am two minutes, no one minute away from losing it!!!
Good thing they are going swimming without me!! (Still a little too red to face the sun again)
I need a diet coke!

*warning* the paragraph about animals is a little pg-13ish. Nothing else though-I promise!
OK-so some of my random thoughts about my life.
We went swimming for the first time yesterday at the local pool. Yes, we have a pass. That is good for the main reason-when we go, we don't have to stay all day!
Just a couple of hours-
not 3 ever again!
Well-let me explain.
I have really good skin. I am one of those people that don't burn. I have never had a terrible sunburn-ever! I just tan. Even when I think that I am burnt-every body tells me that I am full of crap.
So-when we went yesterday, I was excited to get a little sun.
No-that did not mean that I did not put sunscreen on.
I am not that stupid.
Granted-it wasn't that high-like 50, but I still put some on.
Only one half of my body is burnt
Even my legs are red. Never ever ever-has that happened before!
So-I was way miserable last night. Wore as little clothing as possible.
I was way more miserable at 2 am.
Felt worse this morning.
I think I got a little bit of heat exhaustion, sun stroke, whatever you want to call it.
So-my hubby had to stay home this morning.
I felt that crappy!
I would post pics-but you have all seen a sunburn before!
It's not really that exciting picture material.
So-you should all fell sorry for me that I feel like crap. I figure tomorrow I should be good.
Good thing-the house doesn't vacuum itself!
Dang-I should invent something like that so all us would never have to vacuum again.
We could blog all day and eat M&M's!
That would be the life!
OK-random fact number 2
We have a cat.
She is usually a really good cat.
We all really like her.
For some reason-she REALLY likes me.
Follow me around and rubs against my legs.
I don't know why-i just kick her away..
My kids feed her, and hubby changes the poop.
Therefore, no reason for her to like me-whatever.
She is a girl cat=moody and unpredictable.
So-she is in heat.
Horny and driving me crazy!
She meows that really annoying, loud, low meow.
I think that she does it just to annoy the crap out of me!
We need to get her fixed.
I forget to call the vet-until nighttime.
Her WILD time.
8 saw her the other day and said that the white cat was trying to kill her.
He jumped on her and everything.
I didn't want to explain-so I just act surprised and said;
So-I hate her now-the cat, not 8.
I really hate her.
Guess it's my own fault.
I will call the vet tomorrow.
I must-I must I must!
So-totally radomness that happens in my life everyday!
How about you?
Am I the only one who lives like this?
Please tell me I'm not.

So-as we all know yesterday was Fathers Day.
I have a dad, a father-in-law and a husband.
I am very blessed!
I love them all!
I especially love my hubby!
He is such a good dad. He plays with the girls, he teases them (sometimes a little much) they love their daddy. I love him too
I love that he honors me as his wife and co-companion in this whole parenting thing. I love that he makes me laugh almost as much as the kids. I love that he respects me and his Priesthood. I love that he works so hard for our family. He sacrifices time and the things that he really loves (fishing) so he can do things like -build a garden. I love him because on really bad days, he stops at the bakery that I love and gets me these puffs that I love!
I love him for all that it is and all that does to help me, be a better person.
Happy Fathers Day- Babe!
Ok-enough of the mushy stuff. Some fun facts from yesterday.
First of all, I was getting ready and told the girls to grab their scripture bags. Even 3 has one and she proudly carries it with her every week to church .
So-we are walking into church and 3 asks if I want to see what is in her bag.
"Your scriptures silly"
"No mom, see."
She proudly opens her bag and shows me a remote and her pink flowered sandals.
I ask her why she brought the shoes-the remote. She just carries around random things sometimes--this week a broken remote. Whatever.
"I might need a change of shoes, you never know Mom."
Now I know what some of you are thinking. 3 almost 4 year old don't talk like that. You haven't met my 3.
She does, she cracks me up at least 3 times a day.
Next on this list.
Last Sunday, my parents went on a walk above their house. They live on a mountain-so the trail leads up the mountain, up to the power lines. No house, very dusty and rocky.
They found 3 baby ducks. Just hanging out on the trail. No mom in sight.
So, they picked them up, took them home and put them in the pond.
Of course they called us so we could see the duckings. Of course we went up and of course my kids loved them. They loved them so much, they kept dropping them. We were constantly telling them not to squeeze so tight.
My parents were the hit of the neighborhood. After church, all the neighbors came over to see the ducks. One neighbor even brought a kennel so the ducks would have someplace to sleep.
So-my Mom, put a couple of blankets in the kennel, some duck food (got from a friend) and some water and in went the ducks.
They immediately fell asleep. So they left them in the garage and checked on them the next day. The kids came over again and played. It was so cool that Grammy had baby ducks.
The next day, day 3, my mom calls and said the ducks died-
Really Mom, 3 days and the ducks are dead? What did you do.
We just figured it got too cold for them in the garage.
So for Fathers day-we were going to get my Dad more ducks. We finally found someone in the paper, couldn't get a hold of them in time for the big day. What were we going to do?
So-we got 3 plastic ducks from a game-stuck name tags on them (rock, stephanie, mckayla_the girls named them) and put them in the pond. We called Dad out to see the pond and their on the rocks were his new "Ducks" Pretty funny. We thought that we were very funny.
So-for family night tonight we will be off to go and get the "real" ducks.
Hopefully they will live longer than 3 days.
Ok-so long post
I thought the duck escapade was worth a post. I have pics, but it's too hot and I am too lazy to get up and get the camera.
So-you will have to forgive me for my laziness.
Hope every one's weekend was memorable.!!

I am sure that I am the one who taught them this art, but I never expceted them to try and turn it around and bribe me.
Mom, I will give you a quarter if you don't make me do it.
My kids have a lot of money. Not from me mind you, others who are a part of our family and no longer have children living at home.
I am not that rich, or that stupid. I don't yet want to share with the ones who made me poor in the first place.
I was thinking, maybe if I started taking them up on their offers-I could buy something really cool. Maybe I could save the money that my kids give me because they are too lazy to do their own work , and have a t-shirt made that says:
I bought this shirt with the money that I made from my children. Why did my children pay me money? Because I am the smartest mom ever.
My children pay me to be their mom. Jealous?
The ideas are endless. If I wanted to buy something large like a non-carpool driving car. A car with only 5 seatlbelts! :)
I could give them access to their colllege funds and start charging for getting out of certain jobs.
I'll be driving something cool before I know it.

I looked at who it was from and thought;
So, I got a pkg from Annie today.
Annie was my swap partner.
She has a crazy past couple of weeks, so we didn't mail our pkgs until Thursday!
Oh, let me tell you, it was so worth the wait!
It was like Christmas! Or my Birthday or some other holiday when people give me presents!
So-do you want to see what she gave me?
I know that I want to show you!

So-I am starting a new Wednesday thing. As you can see, it's called
What's Happenin Wednesday!
I figure, most families have had a little bit of drama by Wednesday, so this is the perfect day to see whats happening with everyone.
We have had a lot of drama at our house this week.
Lets start with Monday.
Monday was the last nice day before the crappy days started, so all the kids were outside! Yeah!!
Then I heard the screams!
8's wrist looked all wonky and her hand was bloody. She tripped over the curb while she was playing. Lovely!
So, off to urgent care we go. We got x-rays and the Dr. says it's fine. I asked for some kind of splint and sling, just because she was in so much pain.
So-we splinted, wrapped and got a sling-not that the Dr was competent enough to give it to her without her mother asking for it, but whatever.
So luckily it's not broken (we are 80% sure of this) so the splint can start to come off at nights and hopeful in the next 7 days, it can completely come off. Yea!
That means we can still swim, and take swimming lessons and plat softball and ride a bike and all the fun things that kids do in the summer.
So, that was Monday's Drama.
No more drama, just decorating. Re-decorating anyway.
Like I said in the previous post, I am kind of a freak in the whole re-decorating dept.
So, I got this bug up my butt and decided to change the family room.
Now, when one doesn't feel 100%, she really shouldn't move furniture around.
I don't listen to reason.
If I did, I would have normal hair. :)
So-these are some of the pics from my family room after I moved all the furniture around and then felt like I was going to pass out so I had to call my Mom to finish.
Tell me what you think?
