Why won't he sleep???

Brayden has not taken a nap in the last 4 days and it's driving me insane! He just cries and cries in his crib. When I do get him to sleep,he wakes up as soon as I lay him down. He has been napping so good for the last few months! *sigh* It's so nice to get a break while he naps. He has not been sleeping well at night either so I think he might be getting a new tooth. Adam is out of town for a few days so I hope Brayden starts sleeping better or else I'm going to go bonkers! :-(

I've been tagged!

Sorry Michelle,I just saw your post! Anyway here are my 5 fave places to eat.

1.Wienerschnitzel-I love their chili cheese fries! With how often I eat there I could probably sue them for "making" me fat. ;)

2.Arctic Circle-It's the closest restaurant and it has a play area so we go there often. I love the halibut and fries and the cookie dough shakes.

3.Los Hermanos-This is my fave "sit down" place. Adam and I go here on a lot of our dates. I love the pina colada drink and the beef taquitos and refried beans! YUM!

4.Outback-Love,love the cheese fries! I'm a big fan of steak as well. We don't go here very often because it's so pricey.

5.Leatherbys-I like to get the cheese fries,(you see a theme here?) and they have yummy ice cream! I have a hard time choosing between "gretchens golden nugget" which is vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone with caramel,cinnamon and pralines and the "peanut butter cup" which is vanilla ice cream covered in melted peanut butter and chocolate. MMMMM,yummy!

Now I'm hungry,thanks Michelle! ;)

I've come down with a case of the blahs today. I feel really down and moody. I should be happy because Adam didn't have to go out of town this week. I'm generally a positive person and I hate feeling this way. Of course I guess everyone hates being depressed. I have to go to the grocery store today and I REALLY don't want to. I have to watch what I spend because we are short on money this paycheck. I need to get the oil changed in my van and we might have to use some from our savings account,which I don't want to do. Our savings account is not that big and I like finally having some money in there. Sheesh,I hate being a downer!

I'm sure tomorrow will be better.

I am so tired of this....(A rant by me)

I'm so annoyed with gas prices lately!!! A gallon of gas has gone up 15 cents this week alone!! It's so ridiculous! I went by a gas station the other day on my way to lunch and it was $3.09 a gallon. When I went by again a few hours later it was $3.19! It had gone up 10 cents in that short amount of time! It infuriates me to no end! Then today I went to the post office to mail a package and and to get a book of stamps. Well the postal worker told me that the price of stamps is going up on Monday! GRRRR! Anyway so she asked if I would like the current stamps or the new ones..uhhh hello?? I felt like saying,"Sure I'll take the old ones and come get the new ones on Monday!" *rolleyes* She gave me the forever stamp which has no price on it and it was $8 for the book. I remember when a book of stamps was around $4 to $5. Anyway I'm just sick of high prices! Ok,I'm done now. ;-)

Cold Sore,ARRRGH!

Can I just say how much I HATE cold sores? I'm always ducking my kids arms just on the chance that they might hit my sore. Besides being painful,they make me feel so ugly! My sister and my niece get them too but neither of my parents do,go figure. I use Abreva on them and for $12 you get a tiny tube that lasts for 1 cold sore. I only get sores a few times a year but that is enough for me. When I was in the hospital after I had Brayden,I broke out in 4 cold sores,all in one spot on my top lip. Because obviously I didn't have enough pain in my body,I needed more! *rolleyes* I've heard folic acid can help keep the sores away so I may have to try that. Woe is me. ;-)

Happy birthday Brayden!!

I don't know where this last year has gone,I can't believe Brayden is 1 already! I've been thinking about his birth and I am just amazed that it has been a year! It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant and now it is May 2007. The older I get,the faster the years go by.

We are having a party for him with our families on Saturday and I still have to get the party favors done. I've made wrappers with his name, birthday and picture on them and I am going to wrap them around chocolate bars. It will be a pretty simple party,I just wish the weather was going to be nicer so the kids could play outside. Happy birthday little dude! :-)
