I need a maid!!!

Seeking housekeeper to keep me from losing mind...Job would entail at least 3-4 eight hours a day per week and includes cleaning house from top to bottom, laundry, dishes, and lots of attention paid to my disgusting bathrooms. Job also includes walking 2 dogs, cooking dinner, and making sure kids schoolwork and chores are done for next day. Extra money earned by taking care of husband's needs. Pay is $0 per week. May not sound like enough money but women have been making that for years doing same job...if interested, leave comment!

My new baby...

Meet the newest addition to our family. Allie came to us a week ago and we LOVE her! My sister-in-law found her in Birmingham (hence her name "Allie-bama"!) and since she was moving back to Houston the following weekend, she asked us if we wanted her. We couldn't help but fall in love. I am super surprised at how my husband has reacted to her. He did not want another dog, much less a puppy. Now, he's like a new father, telling me how smart she is and what she's done all day when I'm at work. It's pretty cute to see a big guy like a little dog!

You Belong in 1953

You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

Schools back!

So I'm taking 9 hours this semester, working full time and trying to keep my boys under control while dad is out of town. I think about doing housework but at the end of the day, it just has to go on the back burner. The weekends are full of lacrosse, studying and in the next month or so, a lot of wedding related events. I love being in school and learning new things so I have to just press on. I wish I had the money for a maid!

I have the strangest dreams. It's something that runs in the family because my mom has the same thing. They are usually very vivid, active dreams that leave me waking up full of whatever emotion was most prevalent in the dream. My favorite thing is to wake up laughing because the dream was so outlandish that, even though I'm sleeping I know that I'm dreaming. I know it sounds weird but it happens.

Last night I dreamed about my brother's rehearsal for his wedding. It went something like this....we were at the rehearsal (which was in some kind of a field, with a stage) and we were standing on the altar waiting for everything to get started. My cousin, who is a couple of years younger than me, started putting the moves on me right in front of my husband. I froze out of sheer disgust but he just kept on trying to hug and kiss on me (in a gross cousin way). Then as the rehearsal was wrapping up, my ex-boyfriend showed up. I got really nervous but avoided speaking to him somehow. I don't know why he would be there's a dream, stranger things have happened! Everyone was riding around the field in our go-cart and taking turns swapping off on it. Then people started passing out because they were drunk and we found out that my ex-boyfriend was giving everyone that was drinking a sleeping pill to go along with it so they would pass out and he could rob them. Some of the guys that were at the rehearsal heard about it and were trying to grab him but he was running around avoiding being caught. Then I escaped with another bridesmaid and as I was running away, I looked down at my cell phone and noticed that my saved phone numbers were all being deleted one by one. I jumped into a waiting truck (like a moving truck) and realized that the battery was dead. We freaked out because we were trying to get away so we asked people on the street for jumper cables. One man came up to me with a pair of forceps and said that you can jump the truck with those. All I remember was thinking he was crazy because you'd shock yourself with forceps on a battery. Then I turned around and saw some kids playing chinese jump rope with a set of jumper cables so I grabbed them. That was it! My alarm went off and I never knew if we got away or not....from the crazy boyfriend with the sleeping pills!!????

I love having an active dream world. It's so interesting how your brain can conjure up stories and scenarios that make absolutely no sense yet strike up so much emotion. If anything, it's fun to get a good laugh!
