Everything in my life is a total MESS right now.

#1 the road I drive on everyday to get to and from work is under construction. It is literally a 3-4 mile drive from home, to daycare, to work and it takes me about 20 or plus minutes b/c of the traffic and dimwits that think they can't drive when there are cones on the side of the roads....come one people.....I don't have much patience.
#2 We are moving at work. So Packing up, moving into a temporary little box building (while waiting on new office to be ready), unpacking, trying to do my best to stay organized and keep working as much as possible, packing up, moving to new office (which has yet to happen) and then unpacking again to get organized and get back into the swing of things! I'm complaining now but it will be SO nice to be in our new building! It is so pretty and awesome compared to the dump I've been in for the last few years!
#3 Somehow I have been kicked out of my garage parking spot. I AM NOT happy about this. I am an adult, who pays a mortgage, the LEAST I should get is a covered parking spot! right?
#4 Why does the grass grow so dang fast in the summer....really we look like white trash by Wednesday after mowing on Sunday....really if we can't mow every 3 days....the grass takes over!
#5 I can not seem to keep the house clean - I even have a cleaning lady that comes every 2 weeks! (Lazy, I know....but I love her!) I started a new routine that has been working out.... Every morning when I get up I start a load of laundry. Before I leave I put that load in the dryer...the next morning, I fold the load in the dryer and start another load. So it really has cut down on the laundry piling up and I like this new routine! Oh, and I totally make my bed every morning now too - and I have never done that before 2 weeks ago! I guess #5 doesn't count as chaos....
#6 Cori - woah. What do I say about Cori. She's A MESS! She's mean, smart, sweet, loving, rude, cranky, adorable, opinionated, sassy, grouchy, happy, beautiful, (did I mention mean?) all in about a 15 second time frame! It blows me away! She can slap the crap out of me, kiss me, pull my hair and tell me I'm pretty all in 1 sentence. That child knows what she wants and when she wants it and if its not what she wants, the neighbors and I both will know about it. She makes me crazy and so proud in the same feeling.....does #6 make since to anyone else besides my twisted, tired brain?
#7 isn't chaos either - Erin's wedding! It was beautiful! I am so glad I was able to be apart of their special day! I met LOTS of great girls and I hope to keep them as life long friends!

(not sure why my pictures wont let me move them to go under each here are some pics, out of order....but whatever. I can't win every battle)

Cori and I playing!
This is what I've lost my garage too.....
My new office.....I can't wait!
My temp box office to keep me going

I realized tonight while watching tv that I have a new fear. This woman was telling a story about the worst thing you can think of happening to her 10 year old daughter. It just broke my heart!!! So I wanted to put it out there that if anything like that ever happened to my child and I knew who it was, I wouldn't call the police. I would kill them! I think I'm crazy to say those words but I just have so much anxiety just thinking about it!!! The worst part is is that it can be someone you trust and allow into your home. Man oh man! I think I may have just become one of those over protective parent that I always swore I wouldn't be! Now I know why my parents were the way they were and I thank them from the bottom if my heart for being such great parents!! I love my daughter with everything I have! I would feel so guilty if anything ever happened to her!

On a happier note, I'm headed to Galveston tomorrow with my college roommate and some great girls for a low key, just the way I like it, bachelorette party!! It's gonna be lots of fun! Then Saturday I have 2 adult birthday parties to attend!! Busy weekend ahead!

Peace out, have a fantabulous weekend!

Rain, Rain & More Rain!!

Okay - my week has been crazy! I went to see Eclipse at midnight on Tuesday/Wednesday and ever since then I've been so screwed up! I'm too old for a midnight movie, especially on a work night. What was I thinking?? Anyway, it was actually really good and I enjoyed it a lot! The crowd and the screaming little girls weren't too bad either - sometimes I wonder if I was that dumb and immature when I was 11-15.....I probably was (although I didn't think so at the time) so I try not to get too annoyed with them! My days were so screwed up I asked Holly where her "Friday High Fives" were........ON WEDNESDAY.....LOL she probably thinks I'm crazy!

Monday I went to the Orthodontist to look into getting invisalign. I have 2 teeth that are not straight and it drives me nuts! No one else notices but it bothers me. I was shocked to hear the price of invisalign on the upper only for 6 months! So, looks like that won't be in my near future and I just don't think I can do braces again as an adult. (Side note: Invisalign for 6 months was going to cost about 2k more than I paid for lasik eye surgery.....seriously!!) So I just decided to have the ortho make me trays and bought some bleach....maybe whiter teeth will make me feel better. Also on Monday was Cori's 2nd gymnastics class! She's so adorable! Gymnastics wears me OUT! Am I supposed to be sweaty and out of breath at the end of the 45 minute class too?? It's so funny to see Cori doing forward rolls and jumping on the trampoline! It brings back memories that I had doing gymnastics when I was young! After she gets her stickers at the end of class she tells me "HOME MOMMA, NIGHT NIGHT" She know's she's tired!

James bought a Polaris rzr this week! I was reluctant at first but I'm okay with it now. It's fun and Cori enjoys riding on it.....anything for Cori! a rzr is like a cross between a 4wheeler and a golf cart - except it gets up to about 70mph!

Cori and her BFF Carl, my parents dog.
Getting ready for her 1st Ride!

Tonight Bridget, Cori and I are headed to Ft. Worth. My mom is leaving this morning and was upset we couldn't go with her (b/c I couldn't miss work) but I decided to take off a little early and head that way! We aren't telling them we are coming! I think it will be so cute to sneak up and let Cori walk up and knock on the door! They will be so surprised! I hope she does well in the car for me, this will be her longest trip yet! We got a dvd player for the backseat, so hopefully it keeps her entertained! I think I wanna make time for the stockyards tomorrow, if the weather is nice, and maybe even check out Billy Bob's! We'll see. My mom said something about everyone driving into Oklahoma to go to the casino....but unless one of my cousins offer to babysit, I will be missing that trip. No biggie though - I could totally do without throwing money into a slot machine!

I hope everyone has a great long weekend - stay safe and have fun!!!
