“We Used to Hate You”

That is what my friend and coworker told me while hanging out. In no time, others chimed in in agreement. Alarmed at the situation, I nervously asked “why? “.

“When you first started (working), you were so happy and nice and we just thought you was fake, but once we got to know you, we love you.” Once again, others chimed in in agreement. I laughed it off and she then said, “see? You are just nice! People aren’t like you!” I blushed, said thank you and conversation changed.

I could say I was hurt, but it would not be true for it is not the first time that being nice has gotten me into trouble. I was just happy that they stopped hating me. I also thought, “I am so cool”.

But hey, I’m not always sunshine. Sometimes I cannot shake negative Nancy off my shoulder. But everyone has their issues.

The way I see it is like this. “Treat others the way you would like to be treated ,” the world would be at peace. That is it!

Until Next Time,
Keep being…YOU!!!

Grumpy Mummy

My day started out with my wittle guy waking me up because he was moaning in his sleep. His feet hurt, so I gave him magnesium and he held on to me. I fell asleep and woke up feeling as if I got no sleep at all.

Trying not to be grumpy…I put the boys in the tubby with foam bubble bath. But I think they also woke up on the grumpy side. They were bickering, whyning and picking on each other. For once, I did not know what to do because it is unusual for them to act this way.

The rest of the day felt like it was going in slow motion and no matter how many deep breaths I took, everything struck a nerve.

Even knowing that we had people coming over that I enjoy spending time with did not lighten my mood. But then they came.

We had our cousins over for dinner. We’re more friends than anything. Oddly, the kids did not play like they usually do, but it was truly a relaxing time. We had lasagna for dinner with a salad with poppyseed dressing and my sweet friends brought over flourless chocolate cake. Gotta loooove them!

We had adult time and it felt wonderful! Seriously, there is nothing better than having children that behave so well that it almost feels like they are not there. It felt like a recharge. How fun.

They went home and we played the Chutes and Ladder board game with the boys, before settling in bed and reading a couple bedtime stories. Still, my big guy was slipping back to the cranky side, and I was slipping as well.

The boys are now sleeping and I am writing from my phone again. Which by the way, we have not received our router to receive the internet. Bah Humbug! Better call Verizon tomorrow. But what can I do? Tomorrow will be a great day.

Until next time,

Sleep tight


Sometimes, I sit and think about the fact that I do not have any friends….but then I realize that it is not true. I have friends, wonderful ones really. The thing is that we just have our own lives with children and it is hard to get our schedules to match. So we only see each other a couple of times a year.

What happened to the days when I could just pick up my purse and walk out the door? It is no longer that simple. Now it is, getting myself and two little guys fed, dressed, make sure everyone goes to the potty including myself, start the van, put on shoes, coats. Then the seat belts, walk back inside because I forgot something, run a couple errands and run back home because we are all hungry and tired. What happened to endurance?

I have had those days where I have gotten everybody dressed, ready to go and one has to go potty, the other gets hungry and then has to potty, then the first one is hungry after not wanting anything, finally we get ready to go and I am just exhausted and just sit on the couch and call it a day!

This is what all of my friends go through, by the time we manage to get together, we just want to take a nap. Instead we all laugh at each other because even though we are all different we all suffered a catastrophe before meeting together. We hang out for a couple of hours and head home because the kids are tired.

Alas, I miss every one of them. I will make an effort of  getting together more! I just hope that they all know I love them with all my heart and I am grateful for the moments we are abled to spend together.

Until Next Time

Tell you friends you love them
