Inspirational Quotes 9/28

I've decided to do Post Secrets this week!






Put the Lime in the Coconut ....




And Drink it All it Down!

It Practical Magic Blog Party time! So get your midnight margaritas and sit back and enjoy the ride! Now original I had hoped to age a few papers and maybe create a few pages like the ones in the Owens' Book of Shadows, but alas I didn't quite get around to it. (So is the trouble of PPD but that's a different post.)

Instead I've decided to post a few of my favorite scenes. The first being, the infamous Midnight Margaritas scene!



This is from the scene when Sally walks in, stirring her drink magically and tries to get the man in the background to understand that he put the item he bought on the wrong ahem body part. Not to mention I loved her shop and this is what started my dream of owning my own shop one day.






This is the Which People, Witch People scene. I mainly loved this scene cause I love the room!




Then there's the kiss, when Sally finally finds true love. Her spell that she meant to make it so she would never fall in love, but of course it found the perfect man for her.



Remember:

 Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. 
Keep rosemary by your garden gate. 
Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. 
Plant roses and lavender, for luck. 
Fall in love whenever you can.

Down the Rabbit Hole: Week 3





Yesterday was my first appointment with behavioral health. It went pretty well and I found out according to their little test even on my prozac I was "moderately depressed" which is a little disappointing, but I could also tell that I was better than I would have been just a few weeks ago.


The thing that worries me is that lately I feel a little unfocused. I've been neglecting my blog and my groups on BabyCenter. I've had a few ideas about things I would like to create but haven't gotten around to actually creating them.

Instead I've been watch Greek on Netflix and playing The Sims. 

Yeah that's my big thing. But I mean I can't really go out like I used to, since it kills me to hear Ariel scream in the car. Plus we're you know broke.

Inspirational Quotes 9/15






Books, Books, and more Books

I have a problem, I'm a book-aholic. I love to read. I love to buy books. This isn't a new problem though, it's an old one. The new problem is that with 2 kids now I don't have as much time to read as I used to. Meaning that instead of having maybe 2 or 3 books to read, I have a crate of books to read.

I keep wanting new books and have to remind myself that I need to read the ones I have first. I have finally decided that I'm not allowed to get another book till I finish the crate.

Which is kind of killing me, since I love going to Barnes & Noble. I keep seeing all these books I want but can't buy yet. And new books to series that I'm already reading come out, or books that I've been waiting for.

I made one exception though. I bought The Power of 6 cause I wanted the original cover not the movie cover.

Down the Rabbit Hole: Day 17

Happy September!

Guess what? Tomorrow my little girl will be 4 months old! How crazy is that? I can't believe how big she is getting. Of course she's only about 2 months adjusted age, but she acts like a normal 4 month old. 

I've been doing so much better, even Hubby agrees. Although he did put it that I wasn't being such a pain in his butt. (He thinks he's funny.) My cousin was asking last night how I've been and how the prozac is working. I feel a little off at times but I'm not crying, I don't get so upset over every little thing, I still get very anxious about leaving Ariel, Kiki says that's normal. My social worker cousin. 

Speaking of social workers, I think I might have mad mine upset. It's not my fault. I was suppose to go to that employment thing (which is stupid and I don't see the point in) on Wednesday, Hector got stuck at work late. I couldn't make it and it doesn't have a number to call so I could say I couldn't make it. Instead she calls me the next day and leaves a messages saying how I chose not to go, I decided to wait to call her back since I want to be snarky and say I didn't choose not to go, I couldn't since we only have one car. I realize that snark is bad so I decided to wait and cool off. 

I actually think that is an improvement since before I would have just called and been snarky and gotten myself into trouble and start crying. I've also come to realize that I get a lot more in child support than I see since I'm on assistance. And that I should have my child support redone after I come off assistance. He can afford to pay almost $500 in arrears a month but I only get $50 in support a month, that just doesn't seem right to me. 

Today is also Hubby's first day of being a Rennie. He and Kiki are off working the Ren Faire today. Meaning I'm alone all day with AJ and Ariel. Tomorrow I will also have Karlee, she's having a sleep over with her cousins and will be back tonight. 

Wish me luck with all the kids!
