Bruises and Mishaps

This is what happens when you are the same height as our computer desk.

This is what happens when you jump off of the couch head first.

Because of these wounds,I've heard many comments..

"Aww,what happened to his eye?"
"What did the other guy look like?
"It looks like nursery was rough today."

At the gas station today,a kid kept looking back and forth between Camden and I like he was thinking that I had done it. He looked concerned but then he just walked out of the store quickly. Hmm...

Pregnancy and Other Stuff

~As of today I am 30 weeks pregnant! It's crazy how fast the time has flown by,even though it didn't feel like it for the first few months. I am still in need of a few baby things like a swing and a bouncer,but mostly I'm ready for the little one. I just need to get the extra twin bed out of storage since Camden will be using the toddler bed so the baby can have his bed. Slowly but surely my nesting is kicking in and my house is getting more organized.

~A sweet woman in our ward offered to give us her old couch since ours are buried in the storage unit. Well she brought it by Saturday morning and it was not just a "couch",it was a sectional with recliners and a hide a bed! With the computer desk in the room it's pretty squishy but it's SO nice to have somewhere to sit down! (Have you ever seen a woman who is 8 months pregnant try to get up off the floor? It ain't pretty,people)

~I took all of the kids to church yesterday sans hubby. They were well-behaved and they went to their classes easily,even thought it has been awhile since we went to church. I did end up staying in the nursery with Camden. About snack time he calmed down and he had fun the rest of the time. If he can just get through the first half hour,then he is usually alright. One day I will be able to attend Relief Society..that is my goal. ;)

~Summer vacation is almost here. The next 2 weeks will be busy with end of school activities. I'm looking forward to summer..taking the kids to the park and the library,the b-b-q's, and of course the birth of my baby girl.

~Brianna is very excited to be graduating from kindergarten. She wants to go full time so she can eat lunch at school and have a lunch box. It's the simple things in life,right?

~Josh is sad about school ending but he is excited because a friend of his is having a last day of school party with a "ginormous water slide". He is counting the days!

~I wish we could go on vacation this summer but with a lack of funds,it's just not going to happen. For the last few years,my SIL has organized weekly activities in the summer and half of them are free (my favorite price) so I hope she will do that again. My kids love it.

What are your summer plans?

Ugh! Not That Song Again!

It's been a little slow on my blog lately. I've decided to post some songs that I hate but the rest of the world seems to love.

Most of these are from the early 90's. All my junior high friends seemed to love these songs and I would be over retching in the corner. (well...maybe not,but you catch my drift) I'm sure some of you may read these and think,"What the...??? Stacey,how could you NOT like that song??" and I will say, "Because it is like fingernails on a chalkboard,my friend. These songs just grate on my nerves."

"Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Conner.
I despise this song. It used to play on the radio over and over when I was in junior high. My best friend and I always made fun of "Shavehead" and her song. It wasn't very nice,but the song made me want to stick things in my eyes. For real.

"Eternal Flame" by The Bangles.
Now before you say anything,yes I's such a tender song to you. But to me it was "Meh."

"As I Lay Me Down To Sleep" by Sophie B. Hawkins

"What I Am" by Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians

"I'll Stand By You" by Pretenders

Any of the songs by Fine Young Cannibals.
I'm still haunted by the singer's voice.

"Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears For Fears

"All Around the World" by Lisa Stansfield

"Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" by Stevie B

"Tom's Diner" by DNA and Suzanne Vega

"Barbie Girl" by Aqua

"You're Still the One" by Shania Twain

"Adia" by Sarah McLachlan

"Believe" by Cher

"Kiss Me" by Sixpence None The Richer

On the plus side,going back to look for some of these songs reminded me of the songs I loved when I was younger. Score!
