Big girls need Life Insurance To

Ok so I am just gonna vent a little here! So about 2 weeks ago, the husband and I go and sign ourselves up for some life insurance, you know, the responsible adult thing to do, since now its not just us we have to support! So yeah, we go after work one day sit for 45 mins - 1 hour getting all the necessary paperwork filled out. Only for me to get a letter in the mail 1 week later stating that I have been denied for Life Insurance due to Medical reasons!

Medical Reasons!!! Seriously? Am I sick? Am I dying? What is medically wrong with me that I dont know? Well after a few phone calls ( or no phone call) I fianlly recieved my call today telling me the exact Medical reason! Are you ready for this? Im over-weight! Seriously tell me something that I didnt know...hahaha.....but seriously, they are denying me all together because I am 15 -20 pounds over-weight!

So Im over-weight yeah yeah..........but this is why I am ticked..........WHY COULD THEY NOT HAVE JUST SENT ME A LETTER SAYING " Hey lady you are Fat, loose weight and try again" seriously, why not just say, we are denying your claim, because you are a few pounds over our limit! Instead they went the easy way with Medical Reasons! Had me thinking there was somthing wrong, that even I didnt know was wrong!

So now my question is............What do BIG people do if they can qulify for life insurance, and something happens.......I honestly think that they should just make Bigger people pay more, regardless of how over-weight they are!!!!!!!! I mean seriously BIG PEOPLE NEED LIFE INSURANCE TO! I think this is just the insurances way of getting out of something like this! For heavens sake....Im sure they make their moneys worth off of young people (or young peoples parents) who sign up and pay for life insurance for 60 -70 years..

So Im just saying.....this really ticks me guess now my fat butt needs to go on a diet and shed these 15 -20 pounds........then maybe this big girl can get some like insurance!!!!

Not Me Monday

So I thought that I would participate in MckMamas' Not Me Monday blog canival! So if you would also like to admit something you "didnt" do (but actually did), then hop on over and join in on the fun @

This past thursday I did not lock my 7 month old in the car, and then I did not freak out and run around the car 2 times to make sure I hadnt missed a door handle on the first trip around!

And this said 7 month old did not sit in the car for 30 - 45 mins before someone could come and get him out!

Again this said 7 month did not slither out the bottom of his stroller and stand at the bottom and think that it was to funny that I did not see him stading there! (really I didnt even know he had exscaped!)

And again this said 7 month old was not standing up in his crib holding on to the side, I did not notice it and instantly run to grab my cell phone to grab a quick picture, which I did not turn around immediatly and send it to my mom to look at her big boy grandbaby! All while he was still standing up!!!

And I so did not just post that said picture and think "awww he is getting so big!!!"

Not me, not ever......I always pay attention to where and what he is doing!!!

Weekly Wrighting Assignment

I was reading the prompts of Mama Kats weekly writing assignment. And I decided that I was actually going to participate this time!!! So if you would like to participate also, here are the prompts:

The Prompts:

1.) How did you meet your best friend?(inspired by Kati from Country Girl, City Life)

2.) What are you feeling guilty about? or Memories of your childhood home.(inspired by Josie from Sleep Is For The Weak)

3.) Tell why you are ecstatic "The one that got away" got away.(inspired via twitter by Jay from Halftime Lessons)

4.) Have you found your bliss? What path did you take to get there? or are you still searching)(inspired by Carma from Carma Sez)

5.) Create a conversation between one of these three couples:(inspired by myself)

I have actually decided to go with prompt number 1 and prompt number 5……so yes I am going out on a limb on this and doing two of them!!!

Prompt #1: How did you meet your best friend?

So this is a story all about how my life got twisted /turned up side down, and Id like to take a minute, just sit right there, and I will tell you how I became friends with my best friend!( I know the song is stuck in your head now….hahaha) but anyways to continue........

So I moved to Alabama when I was 12 years old…….my dad decided that he wanted to move here, so we did. We loaded up all of our possessions that we could fit into a UHAUL truck and into the back of my parents Jeep Cherokee and we headed to Alabama. We would figure out where we would live when we got there! My dads’ family lives here in Alabama, so we figured it would be OK! We drove 8 hours all the way up here, I cried probably 6 hours of the trip! I was loosing all of my friends and family that I had known since I was little! What in the world was I going to do now?

Well I will tell you what I did……My mom enrolled me and my older sister in school shortly after we made it to our destination, and I began my 6th grade year at a new school with new people that I didn’t know! Was I scared? Sure……but I figured what the heck, I better make the best of it, because we weren’t going back to Florida! So I started trying to make friends. Some people were nice, and others were just mean to me!

The first time I ever met my BEST friend was when I got put into the same class as her for our homeroom teacher. She was one of the first people to be mean to me! Yes you read that right! She was mean to me to begin with! But after a day or so she realized just how cool I really was…..Ha-ha….no really she realized that she was trying to hang with the wrong type of people and that I was different than them! That I was generally a nice person who didn’t judge someone because of their clothes or their haircut! So from 6th grade on we have been inseparable! Don’t get me wrong we have had our disputes, but no matter what we have dealt with the differences and moved on!!!

So here is to 13 years of friendship…..Best Friend………and to many more to come!

Prompt #5: Create a conversation between one of these three couples:

I chose to do a conversation between the 3rd couple

Mrs. - Would you get off of me!

Mr. - I just wanted some sugar!

Mrs. – That’s fine…….just don’t kiss my freaking neck you know I can’t stand it!

Mr. – Ohhhhhh is it driving you Nuts?

Mrs. - Yes….but not like you wish it did… get off of me! ~!!!!

Mr. – But………

Mrs. – but nothing….get off……..why do you always do that while I’m cooking dinner or something! It’s not like it turns me on! Get off!

Mr. - (sulks away mad….because in the end he didn’t even get any sugar!!!!!)

So now you take your turn at trying one of these Weekly Writing Assignments!


First of all I just wanted to say....... Will has a tooth!!! I felt it last night while sitting and watching my little sis play powder-puff football! He is the sweetest thing, just sittin there letting me put my fingers all in his mouth to check for some teeth! and sure enough I found one!!! Im so excited, he couldnt figure out what all the excitement was about...but thats still excited!

On another note......we went to walmart the other night to get some things, and I got the cutest darn picture of Will in a shoping cart, so I thought that I might share it with yall!

Its Time

So I guess it is time for a new update on little man! He will be 7 months old on the 18th of this month! Man has time flew. He is trying to crawl now. It is soo cute when he is on the floor on his hands and knees and just cant figure out how to get those hands and knees moving at the same time to actually move! So instead he just rocks back and forth before he makes a face plant into the floor, towards what ever it is that he wants! He is pretty quick though, considering he isnt actually crawling, he can get to something before I even notice he has it in his hand/ mouth! He loves to eat, he will eat anything you give him. He loves to laugh...and I am talking a deep down from the lowest part of his belly laugh! It is the best thing to hear when you have had a bad day! He loves his mommy, daddy, pappy, grammy, pop, nanna, aunts, uncle and cousin more than anything.

He loves his cat precious, and she loves him just as equally. Well for right now that is anyways!

He had his 6 month check up back in August. He weighed 18lbs 14oz, he is a big boy! He thinks that he is to big for his car seat now! No suprise there though....he has never really enjoyed that! He went on his first florida trip in August to see Mamaw and Papaw. Im sure that is the first of many! He went to his first Go-Kart races last weekend.....again a first of many Im sure! He loved it, they didnt scare him at all, he wanted to get in them every chance he got. I have some pics I will have to post!
Here is his first time in a Go-Kart though......start them out small and they will do it forever! HAHAHAHA

He loves to go and watch his Aunt Haley play softball......he is such a ladies man already!

He loves to watch T.V. it dosent matter whats on, he just loves T.V ingeneral!

He is such a ham when it comes to the camera! He loves for his picture to be taken!

Guess thats about it for now!

Baby boy update!

Well baby boy is finally better, it seems that his stuffy nose is finally coming to an end! Thank GOD, I honestly dont know how much more I could have taken from the in-laws before I blew up! I look back at before I had him and I seriously dont know what I did without is such a joy to have! I look forward to picking him up from daycare, and him jabbering all the way home to me, like he has a days worth of stuff that he just has to tell me! But let me tell you, that is the only time I can get his little but to jabber to soon as we get home, its all about his daddy! That boy loves his daddy......I am so glad though, hes not a clingy mommas boy! Only when he is sick or sleepy! But Jay is getting much better at getting him to sleep, his patience is getting much better also. I love to just sit and watch my two boys laugh and talk to each other! Its the greatest feeling in the world to be a mommy! But anyways, as soon as I get my pics off of my camera onto a disk I will most definatly post some of the most adorable pics you have ever seen in your life!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

*** This morning, I did not throw an ice cold glass of water on my husband while he was in the shower in return for him "accidently" hitting me with a washcloth he threw out of the shower. Not me, Never!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009


So I figured that I would give this whole writing thing a try. I have seen it many times now on Charlenes' blog, but have never actually participated!

There is no bond like a bond between sisters/ best friends...... (prompt #1)

I actually have 2 people that have helped me through SO much, and they are Lindsey and Charlene. I actually met Lindsey the day I was born. She is my older sister, and by older I mean 11 months and 24 days. We are the same age for a week. Its actually pretty cool! We have been though everything together, thick and thin (I'm thick and shes thin). We are sisters, but for us it is much more, we are best friends. I have been there for her and she has been there for me. There isn't really a particular occasion that she has helped me get over, more like just help me get though life in general. Sometime I wounder what it would have been like if we hadn't been so close in age, and have such a close bond. But then I remember all the things we did together as kids, even now as adults. Don't get me wrong, we have our little fights, well mostly me making her mad because I don't mind telling her what I think about something she is doing! I always knew that if I had a problem with a friend I could just go to her.

Then there is Charlene. I met Charlene in 6th grade and we have been inseparable ever since. Any time I had problems with my parents, sister or even boy trouble, I always went to her. She has always just sat there and listened, she didn't always have a suggestion on what I should do, but it didn't matter to me, I just needed someone to vent to most of the time. And I knew that I could call her at any hour of the night, well on her cell phone (when she finally go one). Her parents were kinda a stickler on the whole calling past 9 thing! We have had a blast growing up together. The past few years we have kinda went our own ways, but we still try and find time for each other! And I still know that I can call and talk to her about issues on the home front and she wont judge me or anyone!

Today I will do more than possible in 24 hours....... (prompt #5)

I start my day out anywhere from 6 - 6:30 am. I now not only have my self to get ready but also the baby. First thing I change a diaper, get a bottle for the baby if he is hungry, prop him up in his boppie pillow, and finally try and get my self ready and leave the house in time to take the baby to daycare, and turn around and make it to work on time! (Which usually dosent happen)

I probably do the least amount of anything while I am at work, sitting at my desk. Granted I have my daily duties at work, but they don't amount to half the stuff I have going on at home. My usual afternoon routine consist of picking the baby up from daycare or Debbie and James, cooking when I get home except on Wednesdays (we go to church, and just grab a bite to eat) change a diaper or 2, fold clothes from day before, wash dishes/bottles, change a pee pee diaper, put aways clothes, play with baby (he is soo darn cute), fix bottles for the night, put in a load of clothes, change a pee pee diaper, feed the baby, give the baby a bath, dress the baby, rock the baby to sleep, put the baby to bed, make sure the humidifier is turned on, swap out laundry,get the sleeping husband out of the recliner and into the bed, turn off living room TV, make sure the door is locked, lights are off, stove is turned off, Take a very quick shower, and finally go to bed.

Only to get up around 3 - 4 am and change yet another pee pee diaper, and feed the baby, and considering little man is sick I now have to fit in ridding his poor nose of boogies, But now don't get me wrong, I love my life, just wish sometimes the husband would help out a little more on some of the duties at home. After all he isn't the only one who has a full time day job, only to come home and have a full time job at home!

If you'd like to play along, here are the directions:

Choose a prompt that inspires you most. Write. Visit Mama Kat on Thursday and paste your blog URL into the Mister Linky that will be up. Feel free to write on more than one prompt if you so desire. And remember the more comment love you give, the more comment love you get so comment comment away.

The Prompts:

1.) Who really helped you get over something? Write about that person.(

3.) Share an interesting email exchange you've had with someone lately.

4.) Have you thought about shutting down your blog? Why haven't you and what would cause you to make that decision final?

5.) Today I will...

This morning, like many mornings on my way to work, I somehow manage to forget how I got to where I am on my trip to work. I usually travel the same exact way everyday, but somehow I dont seem to remember half of my trip to work. I dont know if its that I get so wrapped up in thought or what it is. Sometimes I even wonder how I managed to get to work safely (no tickets, or wrecks). I was on my cell phone this mornig on my way to work, and seriously when I got off of the phone, I couldnt even remember passing half of the scenery that I see every single day! How weird is that? It happens to me more times than not. Sometimes it worries me that I dont remember. I have even sometimes gotten off at the wrong exit, and then realized it, and wonder, Where in the world am I going? Im not a wreckless driver or anything, just seem to forget where I am at, and Where I am

So a quick little update on little man. He has a cold! Bless his little heart, his little nose is all kinda stopped up. We have now had to purchase saline nose drops to put in his nose before he eats, and before he goes to bed. Last night was the first night with the nose drops, he did fine to begin with, but then they made him sick, and up came everything he had eaten earlier, all over me and him both! So I have now learned a lesson: listen to what the nurses say...they really do know what they are talking about! The reason I say this is, I thought that even though they said to give it to him before he eats, that it would be ok to give it to him right after he had taken just a teeny tiny bit of his bottle! WRONG! It must have made his little belly upset! DUMB DUMB DUMB, dumb could I seriuosly be, they are the nurses after all! But on a positve note, when I have to sucktion his little nose out, he dosent cry and scream like I have seen other babies do! He is truely a trooper when it comes to that, he actually smiles and laughs when you are doing it, its kinda funny!

We also have to use a cool mist humidifier to help with the congestion, well I didnt have one, I only have the steam vaporizor, or something of that sort. So I looked at one last night at Walgreens when we picked up the Saline nose drops. THIRTY-FIVE dollars! WHAT! So needless to say the husband wouldnt let me buy one, but I informed him really quick like that if we couldnt find someone that had one, then I was gonna march my self right back up there and get one for our baby! And of course he didnt protest to that! Luckily my siter-in-law had one from when M was a baby. She told me that I could just keep it until they needed it again. So I guess we are now gonna play "pass the humidifier" Good thing she just lives right next door, and I dont have to travel far to give it to her!

Just a quick one before I hit the road to go home from this place I call WORK!

How come its a constant battle everytime I clean house and ask the husband to help me out and do some things?

So the reason I even put that question is, last night I had a few chores that I had just kinda been putting on the back burner that I absolutly had to do while we were actually at home for a split second! So after I cooked dinner and we were sitting down to eat, I told the husband that I really needed to do some cleaning. And he agreed and proceeded to name off things that he would do to help. So of course that really got my motor running, thinking Ok this is gonna be good, Im gonna get the house clean and the husband is gonna help. HAHAHA YEAH RIGHT....Im such a sucker when it comes to this! I should have known that he would have to take a "break" before he could he worked hard at eating dinner. So he takes his "break" and next thing I know, hes asleep on the stinkin couch! This happens every time! So I wake him up, which makes him extremely mad none the less, and ask him to help me do what he said he would. He says ok in a min. A minute turns into hours, and guess who ends up doing what he said he would do.....BINGO...ME! When he wakes up and notices that I have now done "his" chores he is angry and starts saying how Im so impatient and wouldnt give him a chance to do it and yadayadayada........In the meantime the baby is fussing, so I make the husband get the baby and I continue doing what I have been doing now for the last few hours....CLEANING. This time the husband and the baby fall fast asleep in the recliner, now not only do I have to get the baby from him and put the baby to bed(which happened to be my bed last nigth!) but now I have to make the husband go to bed, because I am tired ready to go myself! But it never fails, when I wake the husband up to go to bed, he seems to mysteriously be wide awake now, and mad because I did all of "his" chores and didnt let him, so I gave him a list of stuff he could do that he had been supposed to do! That royally ticked him off.......enough to do what he needed to finish up (like putting his clothes up).

So am I completely horrible for making him so mad that he finally did what he was supposed to?

Just a little post about something that has touched my heart beyond measures. We had Wills baby dedication this past sunday 4/19/09. I invited my imediate family and a couple friends to be there for this occasion. I have been praying now for I cant tell you how long for my parents and siblings to get back into church. They know what it is like to be in church and to worship God with all their hearts! They got out of church a few years back, and just havent been since! So I have been praying like crazy. Sunday they were all there, with the exception of my older sister Lindsey. They think she had food poisoning! But anyways, so they were all there and the sermon was a great one. It was about drinking from the well of Jesus, and lord knows we all need a new sip of it every once in a while. When the alter call was given, no one moved. I was soo upset, I just knew that my mom and dad would move, my dad had been crying during the whole thing. But to my dissapointment no one moved. So just as I thought the dismissal was going to be given, Brother James (my father-in-law) gave one last chance for people to get right with God, he told the whole congregation to close their eyes, and those that God was speaking to to please raise their hands. Well me being all nosey and wanting my mom and dad back in church, I kept my eyes open and fixed on my dad! I know I cheated, but I soo desperatly wanted them back in church and worshiping God like they have before, I know to well that when you are out of the presence of God your life can be unbearable, and I did not want that for my parents.

With my eyes fixed on my dad, as soon as James gave the Ok for them to raise their hands if the lord was speaking to them, I seen my dads hand go up. I was soo overwelmed by just knowing that he was speaking to my dad that I just broke down crying. Next James gave the invitation for those that raised their hands to come to the alter. I knew my dad would have to make the next steps on his own in order for him to go to that alter, and sure enough he got out of that pew and went to the alter, then I seen my friend Megan, then my mom. I was sooo overjoyed that I was sobbing, my sister-in-law had to get the baby from me. I was touched by just the knowing that my mom and dad had gotten re-dedicated in the lord, and my friend Megan had gotten saved.

But the thing that has touched my heart the most so far with the whole ordeal happened yesterday! My BEST friend Charlene emailed me saying that she had posted a blog and wanted me to go and read it. Ive always read some of her blogs, they are always great, so I expected none the less from this one. But it really go to me what she had written. She said that she had fealt God speaking to her during the sermon, and that she was ashamed because she didnt move when she knew she needed him. This by far has touched me more than anything, because I knew that my mom and dad would probrably eventually move. But I had no Idea that it had touched Charlene so much.

I not only have been praying for my family to get back into church, but for my BEST friend and her husband to be saved, and serve the lord. This just confirms that there is a GOD and that he is the real deal, no matter what anyone says. He answers prayers! He has mine! And I know that he is still working on the "husband" of the BEST friend. It will happen eventually, because that is how GOD works in mysterious ways!

~The start of a new thing~

Ok, so since I am new to all of this, I guess I can start off by giving a little update on my little man! He is now two months old! Man how time flies now. He is cooing like crazy, and has the most adorable gummy grin ( since he dosent have teeth) that I have ever seen. I guess you could kinda say that I am partial towards him! He now weighs 13 pounds and is 23 inches long! When he was born he weighed 7pounds 9ounces. The Dr. said that he was in the 25th percentile range when he was at 2 months is in the 75th percentile range. She said it was great! My little man had to have his 2 month old shots done last Thursday...bless his little heart. Two in each leg! He was a trooper though! He goes to daycare and I truely believe that he is learing from the other babies there that are older than him, he has started to sqeel, which is sooo cute. The first time I heard him do it was in Sunday School at church, I couldnt even pay any attention to the lesson because I was cracking up at him! He is tooo funny!
