C'mon Little Doe-ggie!

Lucy has been crawling around lately with things in her mouth, like toys or her sippy cup. This morning it was a sock. It was a clean sock from the laundry basket that I had in the living room waiting to be folded.

what the..?!?!

You Are Aurora! (A.K.A. Sleeping Beauty.)

Thoughtful and loving. Authority figures probably have been sheltering you all of your life. Thankfully you're a very tranquil person who is content with what life has given you, but secretly you want to know how the outside world works.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

What the crap kind of quiz is this to say that I'm Sleeping Beauty?! This quiz is clearly rigged.


This thistle is growing in our rain gutter above our patio in the backyard. It is no lie... in fact, you can see another thistle next to it and there is indeed another next to that one. Mike said that he isn't going to remove it until you can see it from the front of the house.

I don't dare go up on the roof for fear of what else is up there. A stinging nettle maybe? I dunno.

Lucy Tuce

My little girl is getting so big I can't even believe it! She is fitting in 18 month old pants and will be walking at some point. When did she become not a baby?!?!

Here are a couple pictures of her as of late... I think she's a gem!

Wasting Time

How much do we sit wasting time on mundane or irrelevant things? I waste SO much time that it might be classified as embarrassing. My mom used to refer to me as the "doddler" in the family and I know that I've talked about this before but, it hasn't changed in the 2 years since I last brought it up. I recently discovered this magazine and I really wanna get it. It's supposedly has all these ideas about how to organize everything from...

Your Home
Your Leisure

It is definitely something that I need to look into getting. Mikey and I had this big conversation while we were at dinner for our anniversary about having another baby. I am not ready, but he feels like he isn't getting any younger. So, we're at a crossroads about it. I feel like I need to wait a little bit longer, because I don't want to go through all that I went through before just yet. That and I haven't lost all the weight yet that I gained before. Which brings back the doddler part of me. He asked if the reason for me not losing the weight is because I don't want to be pregnant again.. and, you know I hadn't actually thought of it that way, but I think that he might have something with that. Then the realization kicked in that I am a selfish, selfish person who only thinks about herself. But, lets stick with the "doddling"... one thing at a time here.

So, my point is that maybe if I get something that will help me learn HOW to not doddle, then I can start to utilize those skills with everything, from cleaning my house to exercising.

The first step is buying the magazine... so, we'll see.

Has it been that long?

Mikey and I have been married for 8 years today!

I can't believe that it's been that long! It seems like almost yesterday that we got married and were heading down to St. George for our honeymoon.


Anyway, I don't have a scanner, but I do have a camera, so I took a picture of a couple wedding pictures from that time.

So, I've been thinking about all that we have been through together since we've been married and I came up with a list. Here it is for all that are interested:

2000 - Quit my other job and hung out by the pool all summer long. (got a rippin' tan, too)
Started teaching Pre-School again at Realms
2001 - My Nanny died
Read the first 4 Harry Potter books
September 11th happened
Left Realms (a story for another time, perhaps)
2002 - Found out I was pregnant
Had a miscarriage
Mikey's Grandmother died
Found another job and started learing Quickbooks
2003 - Touched by an Angel was cancelled (i.e. Mikey out of a job)
Mikey started his business with his long-time working buddy
I was layed off and started working at The Costume Closet
2004 - quit costume Closet and started working as an office manager for an A-hole!
Had an awsome Halloween party where I went as Miss America with a tiara and all
2005 - Mikey business moved into a bigger office space and they landed the FarenHYPE 9/11 documentary... Production AND Post Production... I was the Production Accountant
I was fired from that Office manager job, because he's an A-hole!
I found out I was pregnant again
I had another miscarriage
Remodeled our living room and turned a bedroom upstairs into a dining room... and we did a lot of other home repairs.
Got another job working at this awesome company for these awesome people!
2006 - Mikey's Grandfather died
I found out I was pregnant again
Went through a rough pregnancy (because I'm classified "High Risk" with an "Incompetent Cervix")
2007 - Had our little girl and she is wonderful!
Mended some fences with family that were broken
Love being a mom
2008 - Tucy turned 1 and is wanting to walk and thats about it.

So, I think that this timeline is accurate, but I'm not 100% on the accuracy. All I can say is that it's been a wild 8 years and I hope that it will be a wilder 8 years to come.

So, here we are the night after our reception. We all went to dinner at PF Chang's... I'll start on the left and work my way around the table.
Jannie, Brian, Grant, Erin, Sam, Greer, Mom, Mikey, Me, Ken, Shauna, Kurtis, Ethan, Terri, Traci and Jim.

Oh, how things have changed since then.
