Not Much New.....

Not much new here. Still havn't ovulated this cycle and it's cd 28! UGH! But I didnt ovulate last cycle till cd 33. So I still have hope.
My voice is slowly coming back. It tends to be a little rough sounding after a day of talking. It also takes me about 2 hours in the morning to clear out what seems to build up in my throat over night....I gag and cough alot in the morning.
The weather here the past few days has been beautiful! Right now it's 75! If Lauren is awake we are outside as much as possible! Might as well be since it's all going back to the 40's by Sunday...ugh! Such a tease!
But she should be waking up from her nap soon so out we will go to wait for Kaila to get home!

Feeling better!

Thank you for all the get well wishes :0) I am feeling much better.
That nastyness turned into a cold. It bugs me more early in the morning than any other time of day. It all seems to gather in my nose, ears, throat and wakes me up bright and early gasping to breath! Lots of coughing and gagging goes on, scaring dh and then I try and go back to! I do have some of my voice back but when I talk you can still hear it's not completely back. But I am not complaining. It's way better than it was this weekend! Thank you God!

Disney knows about Menstruation!

It takes forever to load, so be patient and if you are on dial up, I wouodnt bother. And in case it will not load for you at all from Blogger, go here: It might load better from the direct source. When I embed things on here I never have a problem on my end. This is great though - it is a short film on menstruation by Disney - as if Cinderella ever had cramps. Although now we know why her stepsisters were such snots. They must have had an "occasional twinge of nerves" - which I guess is the Disney description of PMS. This video is worth watching, if only for the illustration of how constipation can mess up the functioning of your internal organs. My favorite part is: "If the egg is impregnated, which happens when a woman is going to have a child..." I guess that happens through the magic of Disney. Tinkerbell waves her wand over your abdomen and *poof* out comes the baby. I love when it talks about "the old myths" of not taking showers during your period. They thought you could catch pnemonia and die! Of course they also believed that it was a crime to deny your husband in the bedroom and you could go to jail if you did. LOL!

This sucks I'm sick....

UGH....On Thursday my throat was scratchy but it went away. Then Friday morning it was scratchy but it went away. Then Friday afternoon around 2pm it started burning! Owie. I took some tylenol and it stopped. Yay! I woke up in the middle of the night in a ton of pain! Took some more tylenol for the pain. When I woke u0 I had the funniest sounding voise. But it also was a stain to talk. We had plans to go to dave and Busters and I was going to cancel but there was no fever so I figured just take some tylenol. So we went played some games and ate dinner. In order for anyone to hear me in there I had to talk really loud so I know that is part of the reason why most my voice is gone this monring. But last night we came home (not late we got ome about 8:45) and Dave said I felt warm. Yep I had a fever. I woke up at 6 am with a slight fever, crap in my throat that I was choking on, runny nose, crusty and filmy eyes and sinus pain behind my eyes and a crackling noise in my ears. So here I sit in my jammies for the day yay. I am bummed cause we were going to visit Dave's grandma, and then I was gonna hang out at my moms while he was at his game and kailabug seeing a movie with my bil and his dad (visiting from Englans) . So now I will be home alone.....I hate being sick....I dont get it often and when I do it knocks me on my dupa! I better be better by tomorrow!

Din din Morris!

OK yeah I know it's only 3:27 pm here but dinner has been done since 2 pm. Dave has midnight madness at work so he changed his schedule to work 4pm-12pm. They have prizes and such for high collectors and he wants part of the action. So anyway when he heard I was going to make Chicken Parm he begged for it to be done so he could take some for himself to work. How could I say no?
I got the recipe from my friend. I have never thought of making it this way. I have always just bought those process chicken patties! Yeah what a imagination I have. So instead I breaded the chicken breasts myself baked them by themselves, took them out then topped with sauce and cheese and wah-lah! My house smells so yummy! lauren is so excited cause I told her she can hav the leftpvers for lunch tomorrow! Kaila will probably only eat half of one. Today lauren had the leftover salsa chicken we had yesterday and she loved it!

"Mommy I dont want to stay here! They have monsters!"

This morning as I was talking to Lauren's mom when she dropped her off Lauren walked over to the bathroom and came out crying "Mommy I don't want to stay here! They have monsters!" We both looked at each other like, "Huh?" I had heard Kailabug say something to her when she came in. I heard the word closet mentioned so I asked her if she told her there were monsters in the closet? She said no I told her my toys were in the closet. Then it all came to me...she had been in teh bathroom before she came out saying that. So I asked her if she had to go to the bathroom? She said yes and started crying louder. She had to go so bad she had her knees pushed together and was afraid that she would pee her pants while trying to get on the potty. So I went and helped put her on. Lately she gets so upset when she thinks she is going to pee her pants. This monster story was the first! Usually she just comes out crying and on key I put her on the potty.

Mondays Memories

Ok here it actually kinda relates to my blog! I remember whan I was young (not sure how old I was) I told my mom that I wasn't going to get married till I was 88! I also told her that (not sure if it was the same day) I was going to have 100 kids! I know she also had me sign a paper with all that info on it so we had something to laugh about when I got older. Dont know if she still has it though.

Obviously I was young when I made these statements because we all know very well I would not have been able to have kids when I was 88! But it does point out that I was very young when I showed how much I wanted a family of my own! A very large one I might!

Guess I wont be having 100 kids. I also married at the age of 25. I should find out if my dh would have waited till I was! But I would really love to give birth to 1 child! I am still waiting patiently........

Happy Spring!!

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I've got a beautiful feeling,
Everythings going my way!
I am trying to cheer myself up!
Spring is definately not in the air here!!
There's snow on the ground and it's 24 degrees F!
Happy Spring my butt! UGH!
Ah well.....I see brighter things to come!

It was a first for me!

So yesterday I made my first corn beef and cabbage meal. I have been to my mils house when she made it. I just thought, " Ewwww! Boiled meat!" So I never tasted it. But about 3 weeks ago my dh saw corned beef at the store and said we had to make it. I figured I might as well try it out. I mean I do like a good reuben.
So I got a recipe from a friend and cooked it in my slow cooker!
Just popped the meat in with the seasoning packet and poured water over it. Surounded it with potatoes and carrots and had it on meadium high for 4 hours. Then about 2 hours before serving we added the quatered cabbage. It was delicious! the aroma reminded me of dh's late grandmothers house! Dh shared many stories from when he was little while we gobbled it up!
But boy I am rememebering how gassy cabbage can make me today!

Springis here or not!

So yesterday Kailabug and I went outside and picked up all the junk that seems to collect in our yard over the winter. I mean it wasnt there before the first snowfall but somehow when it melts you have some crazy stuff in your yard! Some of them we found are yogurt cup (probably from our recycle bin) left flip flop I wonder where the right ones is?) magazine, football, landlords mail, broken pen, various pieces of paper, newpaper sections, various candy wrappers and cigarette buds...etc... Fun wow! So while we were out collecting our new found treasures Kailabug and I were talking.
"Wow there is a spring Easter smell in the air mom!"
" Wow you can smell Easter in the air?" Ladiebug
"Yeah mom, you know that fresh smell you smell right before the Easter bunny comes?"
"Oh I thought you were smelling Peeps, jelly beans, chocolate or something like that."
"No Mom. You are so weird!" Giggling with glee.
"Gee thanks!"
"Well you are! But I love you anyway!" Giving me a hug!
Ok I'll be weird to get hugs from my daughter!
But that "spring Easter smell" was washed away with snow this morning. UGH!

I am such a bad Blogger...apology!

I wanted to say I am so sorry about not responding to everyones comments! Here I have been so bummed to see I had no comments when it was my fault! I had the comment moderator box checked! Meaning I had to sign in to my account, read and publish them myself! I had no idea and just found them today while searching for something. Lo and behold I found 28 comments!
So I promise from here on out they will be there right away and I will respond if needed! I am so sorry!

New Look and Old Name!

So how do you all like the new design? My friend Lori emailed me this sight with the template for the new design. The designer is Mela.
It comes with the template and all the cute little ladybug downloads. I got to put them in my photobucket account and load up the html where her disabled html was. plus take off what I dont use!
I love it! It feels more like home now! Back to Ladiebug Lane!
Thank you so much Lori and Mela!!!!

My New Toy!!!!

I have been window shopping for the longest time. I am a el cheapo when it comes to buying for myself! But I have been wanting an MP3 player for the longest time. I got one for my little brother around when they first came out. We have it now and it only holds 7! My dh uses it. My brother got himself one of those ipods. I refuse to pay that much! My cousin got one of the Shuffles and he said it's a piece of poop and fell apart. He replaced it with an ipod as well. But those are just way more than I could ever talk myself into spending on little old me. So I have been looking for one that has good quality, memory and wont make me feel guilty to pay for it.
I have been saving every dollar bill I have left over after I get paid. I saved $73! Of course I had to put more in but in the end I have the Sony Walkman NW-E305 (512 MB) MP3 Player. It has fm radio and it can hold up to 345 songs! I dont think I even have that many songs I like right! But last night dh showed me how to load it up :0) I did my 2 mile walking video with it and I am in love! I have been calling it my little bean. Little did I know that that is what it is called. The packaging just says the above name but when I found it online they call it Bean.

So this will be my companion all summer long while I take my outdoor walks! I also have been listening to it till I almost fall asleep at night...I always wondered why everyone had their headsets on everywhere now. This makes it so much more convenient!
It came with earbuds but those things dont stay in my ears so I got a headset. I love the cute little screen saver with fruit flying! My husband thinks I'm wacko when I find something new on! I stil have to figure out how to use the radio part but hey I have only had it a couple days! I am impressed that i know how to load the music on! baby steps!

They aren't flat!!!!

I have always been pretty good at baking. At one point in my life I wanted to be a baker...but there's really not much money in it anymore now that the gorcery stores have bakeries of their own.

Well for the last 2 years when I have made chocolate chip cookies they have been flat as pancakes! I always followed the Toll House Cookie recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag. I gave up making them. So Dave decided he would makie them and he had the same problem. Well Kaila has been begging me to make cookies with her. So yesterday I asked my friend for her recipe. Then I also found a sight online with tiups on how to make the perfect Chocolate Chip cookie. It said: 1. You have to make sure your butter is softened not melted ( I never melt the butter, but I know Dave did when he made them). 2. Always chill the dough before baking and keep chilled in between batches. 3. Always cool down the cookie sheets before making another batch.

Wah-la! My cookies aren't flat this time! I wont go back to the Toll House recipe though...this one is much better!
