Good Genetics

Wyatt's 5 mths old today, so, I took some pictures.
I also took individual pictures of the girls.

Update on My Life

Alrighty, as far as American Idol is concerned, I got 3 out of the final 4 right :D woohoo! Go me! hehe

Right now, I think that Katharine and Taylor are the finalists. I'm still rooting and voting for Taylor. I do like Kat, I do... but, there's just something I really, really, really like about Taylor! He did so awesomely tonight too! I really enjoyed tonight's singing :D And Simon (whom I usually agree with and like) was also very positive.

Know what really sucks? The 3 mth pics I brought Wyatt (and had pics of the girls as well done) at Wal-Mart ended up being on bad film! Yeah, great. So, no pics... no digital ones either since I didn't do my usual thing and buy the disc... sucks for me. They owe me a sitting of course; just to figure out when to go. I mean, everyone's bdays are way past. At least I have this nice-ass camera though! :D woohoo!

Calista's last day of school is the 24th. Her cousins (my nieces) have their dance revue on the 28th, so, we'll be going down there to visit and see them perform. It'll be so cute! I'm going to have to remember to bring my video camera as well!

Then, when we come back, we're going to make plans with Jeremy's sister, Tasha, to go to the Lafayette Zoo. I know the kids will love that; plus, I get to debut my tandem stroller :D hehe

Speaking of my nice stroller, I took the kids walking down the road today; it was just such a pretty day. Calista rode her bike. I think it looks like she can go without the training wheels. I asked her if she wanted to try to ride without them and she said yes! But, I couldn't find Jeremy's tools... he finally picked them up (in his trunk). Go figure! lol And he still isn't home. He had to do his deposition (from his car wreck that happened in March 2005) and then stopped at his place of work... now he's out drinking with his foreman or something like that.

Anyways, I really need to get walking more often... like daily. I still need to lose 10lbs to get to pre-pregnancy but 35 to 40 lbs to get to where I want to be. I started doing push-ups and crunches whenever I think about it... I figure that's better than nothing.

And this house... I just want to do a clean sweep. I need someone to help me just clean it out. Jeremy might help... but, he'd want to throw everything away... there are a few things that I'm not ready or about to part with. I need to minimalize; for my own sanity. We have been living in this house for 5 yrs and accumulating stuff. What would be nice would be if Jeremy would build us a storage building; that would help immensely... but, I would allow it to enable me/us in accumulating/hoarding $hit. I'd only put things like outside toys/tools/chemicals/etc and some clothes and toys.

Wyatt cut his first tooth last Wednesday! But, poor baby, he's wanting to chew on everything! I told Jeremy its a good thing he has such a pleasant personality or it would be hell for us (and him)! Ursula still smothers (almost literally) him with kisses and hugs. She wants to be as close to him as possible; all the time.

It really warms my heart to see Ursula and Calista playing together... but, gosh, when they are at odds... it drives me crazy! I'm guessing it doesn't get any better until they are adults.

Here's me and my girls for Mother's Day :D Wyatt was napping at the time :(

This and That

Well, after witnessing Momma Cat give birth... I'm very much dismayed to say that she apparently lost her babies :( While me and the kids went visit during Easter holidays, she moved them. And I am guessing that something got them; like an opossum or snake, or something like that. They're gone :(( If I had only been here, I might have been able to prevent their dimise!

Okay, yes, I'm still into American Idol :D I'm still voting for Taylor Hicks and Chris Daughtry. I think that either Paris or Katharine will be gone tonight.

You know what I hate? I hate being behind on bills. And Jeremy doesn't care about paying them on time. I just don't get it. Why not pay when you have the money? They aren't going to go away or diminish over time; just the contrary. I'm trying be blaise' about it. He isn't and hasn't given me any money for a while now. He gave me $100 to go to visit my family... but, that was mostly for gas and I paid my brother $52 for the land taxes out of it; that Jeremy doesn't know. Not that I'm hiding from him... but, I just forget to tell him.

Its also irritating to have my neighbor's kid here all day long while she naps. If my kids go over there, she doesn't allow them in the house, so I don't allow her daughter in my house. Plus, she doesn't go out there watching them if they're over there... and they're close to a road/HWY; so, I really don't like them there... she also indulges them with candy. And its not like she has any other kids either. Just that one dd that lives with them. She also drinks too much too. Don't get me wrong, I talk to her and all... but, she's one of those people who just don't know when to leave! I have stuff to do at my house. I don't need to entertain her all the time.

Guess I'm feeling bitchy today. Sorry.

The little neighbor girl is nice and all... I have no problem with her... and like I said, I talk to her mom and all... its just irritating to me; here I am, with 3 kids, a house that constantly needs cleaning from the 5 inhabitants and she (the other mom) gets to lounge around while her kid is here; and I have to keep my eyes on them... which impedes progress in my house. Again, I'm glad my girls have another girl to play with; lord knows I would have LOVED to have someone next-door to play with when I was growing up.
