It is all the eggs fault.

Catching up,catching up.

It isn't that I have been a busy bust bee...
I have been hormonal as all hell this cycle,and,honestly a little down... ok maybe a lot down... rock bottom down.
Maybe ,that huge bright full moon is partially to blame.

On top of-It is really hard to not feel terrible, and guilty when you lose patience with your child, and much more so, when you feel like other people are critisizing you for it.Ri is usually very helpful..but I was having a hard day last Tuesday.Rory's new fun habit of throwing tantrums when she is tired, or hungry,(that really have nothing to do with anything) is TRYING. I mostly just ignore her,but sometimes I lose patience and yell to "cut it out" -which I know doesn't help,but damn! Ri who is not home often,will sometimes cater to her in it-which really irritates me. I am NOT going to teach her THAT is going to get her anything. I don't think Ri "gets" it because he is not here all the time to know.While He is just adamant I need a break-which is probably true,as well,and a big reason my pateince for it is much shorter than it should be. It hurt more that he didn't understand,than that Rory threw a tantrum,or that my patience was soo tested.I don't think we even really talked about it till Wed or Thursday..

Wednesday was a much better day...Rory was still acting out a bit though.
-We went to Ravine Gardens and walked Noobie- Noobie was VERY good,she even got petted by a very sweet little girl at the playground. Noobie did keep trying to push Rory out of the way to get in front ,though.

Our schedule has been CRAZY.I keep trying to get Rory to bed early-but even when I do I end up up late waiting for Ri and Rory still sleeps in till 2 pm. We really need to start getting up earlier-and going to bed ..but I am not even sure how. I end up spending afternoons exhausted napping on the couch while Rory destroys the living room. ..then I spend the night cleaning from it.Also,Ri gets home soo late-between his work ,the gym and whatever else he ends up doing after work-like shopping
,and i really do want to spend SOME time with I stay up and make dinner.

I still,haven't once this week got up early with the dog,I have been SOOO tired. :( .
I did,however,clean the bedroom out and do yoga,and stuff, in there while Rory plays in the living room. I NEED to get in some sort of shape..I fear I am starting to look like a stay at home mom,and I really do not want to buy bigger clothes .

I am trying to remember interesting things that happened all last week-but can't.Why I hate waiting to blog this late.I am sure Rory said something incredibly clever,and I can't remember.
Friday,Rory spent most the day pretending to be Wubzy(a cartoon character) I let her lay outside ,the weather has been sooo nice.. She found her toy tonka trucks,dug a HUGE hole and got filthy..
I made a vegan loaf with textured veg protein.Rory tasted it this time!Ri came home and made pirogies filled with TONS of dairy ..very good..but very not vegan.-sigh-

I hadn't mad any plans for Easter.Choosing not to really celebrate it this year. I knew mom would get Rory and us a basket of candy though.Sunday after mom got off work,she picked Me,Rory and Noobie up to go to her house.We ended up doing and egg hunt and everything.So I guess Rory did get a sort of easter...much more than I had planned.
Rory was in a VERY talkative mood ..and told everyone about EVERYTHING,multiple times.

Mom got her a bucket with a bunny,my little ponies, and candy:
She named the bunny Casa bunny -but then changed it -

She hunted eggs,
Noobie seemed to enjoy hiding and helping find the eggs.

Rory had great fun breaking open the eggs filled with candy ,and all the little baggies of candy into her bucket.Lissy got her a wooden spoon and she "cooked" it all together,she even snatched a gummi out of Lissy's hand when she tried to get one when "it isn't done,YET!"

Rory also explained how going cross eyed helps you see in the dark.,,which I guess it does.More of that Rory logic.
Rory had a stuffy nose ,and seemed kinda out of it and groggy a lot of the time we were there.
Mommy didn't feel well either. -She starts Chemo tomorrow,and is just getting over a bit of a cold she has had.
We stayed a bit late- I wanted to watch the end of the Futurama movie,and so did JJ ..and he was our ride. Noobie was done by that point.Dad came home a little tipsy,and his dog pouted to him about Noobie being bossy.

mmmmm I got easter candy!
I STILL did not get a chocolate orange GRRR I MUST get one- I KNOW they will disappear after easter ,and I will not see them again until xmas. I know whetstone in St.auggy makes them,they aren't quite the same...but I may have to go get one.
Rory is wrecking the house with her stucky hands from her easter stew

Ri said last night that his sis is trying to get a hold of her father,to tell him of her pregnancy.He was hoping she would.As much as he hasn't been involved in Sari's life he should probably know he is about to become a grandfather. Sari is having a baby girl she had her dr apt and the ultrasound was very clear. .
I think they have picked the middle name Rose,and maybe the 1st name Lily.. I haven't talked to her myself yet ,so I am not 100 % sure.
I guess they are going to stick with that crappy dr though.. I just hope she has a good birth..she will most likely have a C section with that guy,I guess she doesn't care though UGH!I am having trouble believing she is 5 mo preggy..already and has only went to one apt and thinks it is perfectly fine to be that irresponsible about her pregnancy. :(
I hope if anything,having this baby will teach her about responsibility.

I am feeling much better now that AF has passed this month.. I just hope my hormones do not send me on such downward spirals every month as this. .
.and Rory gets better about her fussy tantrums, as well.

Rory Logic

Super Rory MAX to the rescue:

Posted by Picasa

Saving the Pink WORLD!-Thats what she told me.

Invisible Tattoos:
My Mom got Rory some stickers,and some temp tattoos(which mom thought were stickers ,or wouldn't have bought them). The temporary tattoos were of the "fantastic four" .Rory had pulled the clear protector wrap off,So Ri decided he should just put them all on her at once.She was SO funny about it ,lifting her shirt showing everyone that noticed the one on her hand. I was telling her the girl super hero was called " invisible girl" but she was VERY confused. "she is not invisible!She is right there!" So when her tattoos washed off,she told me "NOW, they are Invisible!" Anytime the subject of tattoos comes up. She will show people her "invisible tattoos".Pointing to where they once were.

Broken Drink:

When we were at my parents house visiting, My Dad asked Rory to :
" Take this cup to Grammy and tell her to fix me a drink"
Rory brought the cup and said .
"Grammy, This drink is BROKEN!?"

He is wearing a diaper?!
When we were at disney,- I was taking Rory to the potty.While we were washing our hands we heard the mom next to us changing her boys diaper-saying "Now that you are three you should use the big potty,do you want to try here?" he said "NOOOOO " . " I didn't think so" She laughed.Rory's face was PRICELESS hearing that. She turned around and looked and said "HES WEARING A DIAPER!?"-I guess ,not understanding a boy bigger than her would still be in diapers. You kinda had to be there to see the look on Rory's face,it was funny. Luckily,the Mom was really cool about it,and just replied "yes,girls are always much easier to potty train than boys"-thats seemed to be a reasonable enough explanation for her.

pink,magenta,and purple,

When we met up with a friend for breakfast Rory and the friends 4yr old ,got in a bit of an argument over the best colors. Rory said her favorite colors are "Pink,Magenta,and Purple"
and the other little girl said "My favorites are "Pink,blue and violet. -and then they both repeated over and over-as if trying to persuade the other .It was funny,because they were almost saying the same colors.LOL.

Sexy Song,
I don't know why Minnie sings "sexy" or where exactly she heard it. But every time she shows someone her Minnie she tells them "Minnie sings sexy";

"the beach had sand,right?"
-Thats what Rory said when I asked if she wanted to go swim at the beach,she said no,she didn't want to swim in the waves but-

When I grow Up ,
Today, While Rory went pee, she told me.:
"Boys,like Dada, pee standing up. "
I said "yeah"
"When i grow up I will pee standing up"
I told her" Only boys pee standing up"
so ,she replied
"then,when I get big I will be a boy,and pee standing up"

Swinging while you're singing:
I guess That is Rory's ear bug(song stuck in her head) -ever since watching an episode of "Mrs.Spiders" where they sang it.
So ,randomly-for MONTHS now,she will start singing "Swinging while you're singing" some times just that line over and over. (Sometimes its "swinging while you're singing ,helps you keep your rhythm") Often in public, lol.

-- I am sure there will be future versions of this.. and I am sure I have forgotten loads of good stuff.

Spring is here!

IT is SOO spring now:
The orange blossoms are on the orange trees now- there are three HUGE orange trees in m
y yard,but they are USELESS as far as fruit.They have some growth -that makes them sour.The only thing of value to them is their blossoms,which smell beautiful right now.
I doo have a tree full of seedy,but edible little mandarin oranges(which is what I used to make those orange spice pancakes),and two trees full of japanese plums -which are really yummy.Rory loves to pick the fruit with me :) .
The wild blackberry vines are also blossoming and should have some blackberries soon!

Rory sat outback with me today and watched a HUGE butterfly drink from orange blossoms- she thought that was cool. She says she doesn't like the smell of the orange blossoms.
We DO NEED to get our grass mowed SOON though... where is Jade when you need him?

More Ocean fun

We got to meet Ben's girlfriend Chiho(sp?) she is super sweet,and Ben was right,Rory fell in love with her. Rory played every game she could think of with her,until she crashed right out. So cute.

March 15th-RI had to leave early to help Scottie get a car.. and we had to get up to go to the beach..

We did eventually make it to the beach again. We still left a little late. Ah,we all value our sleep apparently lol.Rory barely wanted to get out bed.I kept telling her we were going to the beach,and she was like- "OK,but right now I am going to sleep"

Evie's Florida snowball

Tiff found the ocean!

It was much warmer & crowded this time. This time, Amber's son couldn't go,he was at his dads.Rory was probably a little sad about that,I think she has a bit of a crush on him.

The beach was SOOO windy though. A wind would blow, and cover everything in sand ,sand got EVERYWHERE,and in everything.
It was Saturday,so we made phone calls to online friends .
It was much warmer , we actually did some swimming-there weren't many waves but the current was REALLY strong. The girls all loved jumping the little waves. We stayed out there most the day. UGH- my bathing suit top clasp broke right off,causing me to flash the entire beach.I didn't think anyone had really saw it.Tiffs hubby said he thought he did.- I am betting he just said that to mock me.
We made sand castles-and SANDwiches ,heavy on the sand LOL. I think Rory could stay playing in the sand forever.

We took Tiff to the "shell shack" to buy some FL souvenirs. She also bought all of us "turtle rings" :) I had soo much fun taggin along with them , I am really sad Tiff had to go home. hopefully me & Amber will hang out more. :) They are hilarious,I wonder when they will start working on their skanky trailer mansion ;) .

On the way home ,the kids ALL crashed.
When we finally got to our house Rory woke up saying " I have to potty!!" .. I thought, I smelled something when I got her out of the car..but, really ,she hasn't had an poo accident since she was barely 24 mo old ! ,I didn't think it was her.
When we got in the house she was bawling and almost too upset, to hug tiff bye... I took her and put her on the potty- only to find my poor baby ,had & was still pooing all over.
It was clearly diarrhea,and worst of all she was VERY embarrassed by it-she was almost hyperventilating crying.Poor ,poor, kid. I kept telling her,"It isn't your fault ,it could happen to anyone, and I am soo sorry".I gave her a bath-and ended up cleaning my entire bathroom from it . sorry for the TMI.
Amber & Tiff had told me they had had a mild stomach bug-so, I thought she may have caught it.I gave her some baby tylonol ,because she also said she didn't feel well... Really ,I think she just drank too much salt water.She is fine now,which really makes me think it was from the water.

I have been hungry lately,but not wanting ANYTHING. I ended up making shells in alfredo sauce , with cherry tomatoes and broccoli for dinner that night,because Rory wanted mac& cheese and I that was as close as I could get.
I was grumpy when Ri came home, Rory had me stressed -she decided she was big enough to make gigantic messes-and pull HUGE toy boxes into different rooms,but not big enough to put any of it back .URG.. I can't believe she didn't fall asleep early after being at the beach all day!

Yesterday- Ri worked all damn day again...but at least we got to sleep in a little. I have been sooo tired,and I am sure he HAS to be exhausted I cleaned and finally caught up on laundry,while Rory trashed the living room of course.
Went was SO hot, I stripped the kid down and tossed her in the pool.Ah,to have such simple pleasures. It's awesome how a few mins in a little teeny pool can make her whole day.
I made vegan orange spice pancakes for lunch.. so YUMMY! I was looking for a vegan recipe-that Rory would eat,that called for lots of citrus and no soymilk(I was out).
I think Ri is purposely foiling my attempts to go vegan,bringing home milk and butter.I am still making many more vegan foods though,so I guess it doesn't really matter.
When Ri came home- again I was feeling hungry but didn't want anything. I searched the net for a vegan recipe that sounded remotely yummy ,really quick,and I had ingredients on hand to make.
-- I ended up making enchiladas with the leftover mex food in the fridge. And they were awesome.Rory had been DEMANDING to whisk eggs all day.So Ri(being a sucker) let her whisk th last two eggs-cooked them for her , and put them on top of the enchiladas(ruining their vegan ,LOL) but they were REALLY good.

Ri is off work tomorrow FINALLY! Rory has been missing him REALLY BAD.He does have possible plans to hang out with some freinds he hasn't seen in a long time..but promises we will do something or spend some time together.

-- I am in the mood to blog today-and working on multi posts... so look forward to more ,shorter posts lata .
