i think my son is on crack

well, when we got home on monday morning, we were pretty much far too tired to do anything. we simply walked in the door and went to sleep.

nope, we didn't even shower, and if you knew me, you would know that is perfectly fine with me, i wouldn't shower every day if i didn't need to. most of the time i hate to shower. i like being clean, i just hate to bathe. anyway, not jerm, he LOVES showers. but we drove all night and that is much longer when it is dark out. so, we went to bed.

the nest night we had to go shopping and get some food, cuz there wasn't anything here, and then pick up the mail.

i have never had our mail stopped before, always jsut had someone come pick it up every fw days, but this time hubby stopped it.

when we picked it up i had two lovely surprises waiting for me.

i would like to say i was patient and brought them home to photograph to post on here. i would like to....

but i can't. i didn't even wait for him to get in the car. i grabbed the bag of envelopes and snatched out the two presents and greedily ripped them open like a kid on christmas:)

the first was from a fabulous girl shauna over at trying to stay calm who gifted me with a friendship package...

here are the remains...

she even wrapped each thing!

she is so generous!

i never get stuff like this in the mail. i am smiling even now thinking of my friend shauna whom i've never met, and how she bought and wrapped these things for me:) she is such a caring and positive person, and i love reading her blog and seeing all the hearts she uses:)

then i got my gift from becky for pay it forward:) her blog is my life as it should be :)

she is so much better than me, not only did she get her stuff sent out, and i haven't, but she actually made it! i LOVE it!

thanks to both of these wonderful women!

so, how have you all been? i have missed you, trying to catch up on all the things going on has been hard. i have worked only two nights since getting home, but i have the whole weekend to work, fun. hard to get used to smelling poop and rotten bodies all night long. also the cold. i realize it is actually warm here for april, but still....

oh how i miss florida!

now that i am home, i guess i have to go see guinevere. i need to make sure she is ok. i will probably need to take some bandages and flowers to care for her wounds inflicted by others and the flowers to cheer her up. i gained 3 pounds over vaction, which i am not too upset about, but now it is time to crack down.

i haven't ever talked about our eating habits too much, and they are far ranging,but for the most part we have tried to get really healthy this year. whole foods, organic foods, vitamins, juicing, that sort of thing, not in a fanatical way, just in a we want to be healthier way.

but i like to research the vitamins and foods and have a reason behind why we do what we do.

so that is my quest for these next few days, more research into vitamins. boy my life is so exciting. i know how jealous you are feeling right now, but don't worry, we can't all have big projects like this.

jerm is sad because he really wanted to find an alligator on the side of the road and wrestle it. not only did we not see one on the side of the road, we never even saw one! well except at sea world. but i think they frown upon people jumping into the pen to wrestle them.

23. What's your favorite thing about mommy? "you always give me hugs and kisses and you tuck me in and say prayers when i go to sleep"

so, that is me according to a crack head 7 year old.
