Another quickie amidst trying to prep for the holidays.

We went to the zoo with Harvey,Hether,Miranda and Collette.
Rory had a BLAST -we all had a blast.Miranda and Rory get along great Harvey and Hether were funny & Collette is amazingly mature.
We went to IHOP then to the zoo-it seems it took forever to get there.
The weather was really nice though-better than I expected.

We were EXHAUSTED when we got home. The next day was a really lazy day.
Rory woke up and was playing outside with Noobie-and ran in to tell me "Noobie is eating a rat"
Turns out Noobie had killed a mole.I woke ri up and asked him to bury it.So, Rory started burying her broken toys.She seemed ok..I dunno if I was ready to cover the whole death topic.

Today I have loads to do...almost done cleaning.
Ri did manage to unclog the dishwasher.
I had Libby comeover to help today so I could catch up.

Quick seaworld blog

We went to seaworld yesterday -woohoo-
It was FREEZING! We wore layers.Rory was excited to go, and brought the lunchbox she got last time back-and begged us for mac&cheese and a shamu cookie.
We went on the "polar express" and to see santa.Rory was more excited then I'd expected
about santa.She treated him the same as the rest of the costumed characters in the park:A hug, short convo ,and pic.I love the way they decorated like the polar express north pole...I wish they'd have had some fake snow.
We went to the "pets ahoy" show for the 1st time-Better than I thought it would be and Rory loved it-and getting to eat the cookie she had begged for.

I am too lazy to upload pics-and I need to go to bed because we are going to the zoo bright and early..You can find buttloads of pics in my "seaworld fun" album on myspace.
AND-I vid of Rory on the big kid ride..

She was soo big all day -Riding big rides talking to all the big kids very cute-a little over freindly.
Its been a rough day today-Rory has been very clingy,the dishwasher isn't working UGH.
off to bed.
There is much more to tell-but it'll hafta wait.This was already longer than I'd intended.

A little update:

We are getting ready to go to seaworld tomorrow.We decided to take one last trip.It is soppossed to be cold -well see.

Rory was up all night with fevers.I realize how big she is now.Able to tell me what hurts and when.She wouldn't take any of the liquid children's tylonol we had.Ri brought home some dissolves children's tylonol-it worked quick,she liked it,and she seems much better today.I hope it was nothing more than a quick bug...

I need to do a hundered things today to get ready for tomorrow-and to make up for slacking the rest of the week(I have felt so BLAH).
-I should have loads of pics next update though.

old friends,new friends,being open-and being closed off

Yesterday,I met up with a friend from the internet- Amber, her hubby actually went to school with Ri.
-Sooo KEWL she lives so close. We let our girls play together in the park ,she brought tea party stuff and the girls had a cute tea party in the park. It was lots of fun.Nice to chat with someone locally who doesn't think I am "weird" or "Uptight" IRT parenting issues.
Her daughters are one yr older and one yr younger than Rory so it worked out perfectly. Rory was a little bossy again,people keep telling me it is just a phase-I am hoping that is the case UGH.Eve and Reagan are SUPER cute, I think they all had fun.They played all day while we chatted.It was nice to hang out with an

I changed my myspace quote to a new buddha quote to: "Angela is learning An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind."

It is a very fitting quote with how I feel about some old friends of mine excluding me.I guess truly I SHOULDN'T feel hurt by someone I pushed out of my life pushing me out of theirs...but,yeah.Even worse because of their continued communication with me as though nothing is wrong..ugh.
I am feeling like it is time for me to move on ,and become more open to making new friends, and getting closer to other people in my life.Even though I know I am no good at that.I am tired of feeling like I am strangers with the only people I call "friend" it needs to change if I want to start feeling less hated. I am very great full for Ri,i can't imagine how low I'd feel if he wasn't soo supportive and so much of a good friend ,no matter what :)
Well Rory is in the other room yellin' with her grump a voice,I think I have an ear infection and don't feel like doing ANYTHING. UGH.better go check it out.

Day off fun.

Yesterday was Ri's day off. We considered going to seaworld.We really want to go one more time before our passes expire,and we'd love to see their holiday stuff going on now.Hopefully another day.

Instead, decided we'd stay home and he'd have his buddy come over to help him fix up the back yard.(which was in pretty bad shape).He picked up Harvey and Miranda(heather-Harvey's GF- was at work ,so he was taking care of her 3 yr old).Needless to say Rory had a fantastic day.The guys cleaned up the back yard while Rory and Miranda played and had a blast.Ri ordered heavily discounted pizza from a buddy. Heather got off work and came over. We had drinks and hung out the rest of the night.Rory had soo much fun,there were a few disagreements between them,but they got along really well for little girls used to being the only baby.I don't know if Rory has ever been so dirty.It was pretty fun for us as well as the girls.
We made plans to go to the zoo together next week so hopefully it won't be the last time we all hang out.
PICs( I am actually, really hesitant to post these without Heathers permission,I would love to pus some on myspace-I am gonna wait and ask her permission for that.)


So, While those friendships-you know the ones with "Rian's friends"- are becoming feeling about other friendships-including my closeness with my family have felt strained.
Today, I looked on myspace to realize I was left out from some close friends party planning.I am a little hurt by the realization that she is NOT actually a close friend anymore..most of the people that were aren't anymore.
& the other day I got in yet another arguement with my sis over nothing,It's like we can't get along at all some days...and I'm not sure it's getting to be worth the good days convos for all the bad with her...and I dunno if anyone else there even cares to talk to me.

Remind me to NEVER try night weaning again.
Last night ,Rory woke up and asked for "beets" sleepily I said "not right now"
she was fine at 1st and ,for a second ,I thought this won't be soo bad.Then'she woke up more beghan to cry HYSTERICALLY AND DEMAND BEETS..At this point I CAN"T cave,I don't want her to think that works.So we ened up getting up and watching cartoons for a few hours before she calmed down and I decded to give her beets for not asking :( .

Oh- and I'm bleeding & broke out all over still,SO FUCKING sick of such strong periods! I am all lazy and don't want to do all the cleaning I need to either.ugh.

Today,Rory woke up late and took a nap-(I am sure to be up all night)she has been super cute though,playing with her giraffe in the big cleaned up back yard. -the opening pic is from today.Her bossy grump face.Cheesy me out

Good and bad and inbetween

Ah,the hormonal nightmare begins once again as dear aunt flow gets closer.I honestly feel overrun by it at times. :( . I need to get my thyroid checked-the signs that point towards it are getting more apparent..I keep saying that-It doesn't make it happen.UGH.No pics from me today-I look horrendous,at least to my insecure hormonal self that is.

So many relatives in bad places-If I was the praying type I'd pray for them.I do send them positive energy.Seems things are down for folks.This is just a sucky time of year.Money seems tighter, and bodies seem weaker.If you are the praying type..pray for my cuz and her baby to be home together soon.And my Granddad's health to improve...and pray for money for all of us if you wanna be greedy .lol.

We got our FANCY new camera in the mail today.Can't really afford it,but a good camera has become such a necessity and with ours broken ,Ri went ahead and ordered it. It is AWESOME! :) The old one I managed to take apart and fiddle with and STILL couldn't get it functional. :( If i find someone who can fix it my parents may get it for xmas...only because I busted their "chicken".

Rory has been much the same.Cute but difficult.funny-but patience trying.She is getting SO big right before our eyes.Little teenager-I am NOT prepared. I knew this stay at home mom thing would be difficult..and it is.I love to be with her,I love the memories we build..but it is stressful.Feels like RI is NEVER home-though he has been,and he has done an amazing amount for us when he has been :)

Soooo all that really matters when you have a new camera Pics.
