Finally! An answer!

I found out this week that the reason why I've been feeling so crummy lately is because my thyroid is acting up. My body isn't making enough thyroxin, so I have hypothyroidism. This explains so much! My doctor got me started on meds. today and hopefully the fog will lift soon! I'm so tired of feeling sluggish and moody all the freakin time! I want to feel normal again! I'll keep you posted.

Tonight, I took the kids for a walk in the wagon. Do you know how hard it is to pull BOTH kids in a wagon? They wore me out! At the beginning of the walk, Kyra said, "Mommy, if we are going up a hill and it's too hard for you to pull us, I'd be delighted to get out and walk." DELIGHTED? LMAO! What vocabulary she has!

There's something else that she said to me about little boys and their little boy parts, but I'd rather not post that here. I was ROLLING though! So funny!

We are going to Victoria this weekend to celebrate Maeve's birthday. I can't believe that my baby will be TWO on Saturday! WOW! Time flies!

Who the heck flipped the switch?

OMG. So I just turned 30 all of a month ago and over the last few months, my symptoms of PMS have escalated. They are HORRIBLE! I have never had trouble before! I feel like the devil for 2-3 days leading up to the arrival of Aunt Flo! I thought that it was just me, but apparently, it's common for women to have worse PMS during their 3rd and 4th decades of life. So is this what I have to look forward to in my 30's? Geez!

I am anxious to hear if any of you out there reading this know what I'm talking about. If you or someone you know has gone through this, please tell me all about it. Right now I'm on 100 mg. of Zoloft and I THANK GOD for that! ;) Otherwise, I'm sure it would be so much worse for me to handle!

I'm also thankful that I have the internet to look for info. about this sort of thing too. This week, I plan on calling my doctor as well to see what she thinks. Hopefully, with a few little tweaks, next month will be much better! :)

While the kids are away.....

We painted our bedroom this weekend and rearranged furniture. Our bed is at an angle in the corner. We also bought new bedding at Walmart. Thoughts? I really need to wait for daylight to take a better pic! Sorry!
The hoodlums will return tomorrow. I'm meeting my sister in Bastrop tomorrow afternoon. They have been in La Grange since Friday afternoon. It's eerily quiet around here. Oh wait, Mia and Zoe have made up for that! ;)

Kid funnies.....

Today Maeve just wasn't herself. I finally called the doctor around 4:00 and since it was so late, they said that I should just take her to the after-hours clinic in North Austin. We were in and out of there in 30 minutes. As I suspected, she has an ear infection. So it's antibiotics for 10 days. Maeve has never had an ear infection, so this is new territory for us. It wasn't really bad either.....just at the beginning stages.

So we are in line at the HEB drive-thru waiting to drop off the prescription to get filled and a commercial comes on the radio that has a phone ringing in it. Maeve says, "Hello?" It rings again, and Maeve says, "Hello!" By the third time, she was ticked off and yells, "Hellooooooo?!" LOL! I was cracking up.

We get home and the kids are taking a bath together and I hear Kyra say, "Maeve, I love you. I'm so glad that you aren't dead." OMG! PIMP! Apparently Kyra thought that Maeve was deathly ill. I had to explain to her that her ear hurts and it's infected. Kyra never tells Maeve that she loves her though, so I was just soaking that up!

*sigh* They grow up so fast.....

Today Kyra lost another tooth. That's #2 (technically #3 though since she had one extracted when she was 2 years old). The other one had fallen out after she ate something, but she pulled this one out today all by herself. Actually, she said that she put her mouth against the edge of the computer desk and wiggled it until it fell out! LOL! How funny is that? She's a smart girl. She's very excited about the Tooth Fairy coming tonight. ;)

I also officially signed up Maeve for preschool today after leaving a check for supplies. She was on the waiting list, but I got a call last week that there will be a spot available for her in the fall. I took her with me and she wanted to play on the playground and swing and she was getting down all of the books in the office. This kid is going to LOVE preschool.....especially out there where Kyra went. She'll go on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:45-2:00. I'll do a lot of volunteering out there (that I didn't get to do with Kyra) and I'll be able to have lunch with Kyra more often. So this is a good thing. Still it's hard to believe that the time has finally come for Maeve to go too!

Easter was good. The kids had fun. The weather was crappy though. Ugh. I was so happy to see the SUN today! Gosh how I've missed it!

However, we are all still suffering with allergies. Ugh. I can't wait for the oak pollen just to go away. It's bad this year. Of course, then the mold will be in full swing. :( Hopefully, our bodies will adjust and get a break soon.

Tomorrow night is the season finale for my favorite show, "Friday Night Lights". I can't wait to see it. I'm a little sad that the season is over with, but I can't wait for the DVD release this summer. Oh, and it's pretty much in the bag that there WILL be a 2nd season, so thanks to all of you who voted a while back. I'm so pumped that this fabulous show will continue on and that the cast and crew will return to Austin where they belong!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

***OMG! Guess that we will be indoors at my sister's house on Saturday. *sigh* I guess I know to pack warm tonight. Geez! This weather is crazy!

I'm sure it'll wash some of the pollen out of the air. But I'm highly allergic to mold and I'm sure the rain will make that worse. I can't win for losing!

Happy Easter everyone! See you next week!

Ugh. No wonder I've been miserable. This oak is everywhere (notice the yellow on everything?) and I'm highly allergic to mold. I REFUSE to go back to the doctor for a prescription, so last night I went to the store to grab some homeopathic stuff that you let melt under your tongue. And you know what? IT WORKS! Screw the doctors! LOL!
I.hate.pollen. :(

Oh really?

Let me just preface this by saying that Kyra was in one of her moods all day today. She's only 5 1/2, but I swear that she's in some pre-hormonal stage or something. Ugh. She pestered her sister all day long and would get in Maeve's way on purpose. Everything from her was very dramatic today. Richard had enough after a while and sent her to her room (Go Daddy!). This is the conversation that I had with Kyra this evening.

Me: "I'm so glad that tomorrow is Monday and you get to go back to school."

Kyra: "Yeah, I was pretty lazy this weekend and need to get back to work."

LMAO! How old is she again?

My sister and brother-in-law came for a short visit today and her cousins and her uncle were here this weekend too. I would hardly say that she was lazy and didn't do anything!
