Surprise Bachelorette Party... Party of Two?

Sat down to start writing to all of you, to discover that even though one of my good friends is getting married tomorrow, to one of Cowboy's good friends, she's doing NOTHING tonight.
So, I'm leaving you all to go pick her up for a surprise bachelorette party!
And by surprise bachelorette party, I mean her and I going to a local bar to sit on the deck with a margarita tower and listen to a cover band.

Early Day Say Whaaat?

Cowboy got home freakishly early from work today, so we decided to take the boys (okay, we took Bug, Gnat slept) to see The Croods.
Dun dun duuuunnnnn.
(You gotta see the movie.)
It was cute, with just enough meaning and importance behind it for it to strike thoughts into kids who were old enough. Or, in Bug's case, smart enough. (What? Me? Brag on Bug's intelligence? Nooo... Yeah. Lol.)
Now, off to harass Cowboy while he plays his video game, since tomorrow I have to focus on work.
PS: Did I mention that Bug still begged us to go back to the bookstore even though we'd just taken him to a movie? 'atta boy!

I Wonder if I Could Do It

I always forget how draining Bug's appointments can be on me. Especially when we have Occupational Therapy on Wednesday, and then Psychology on Thursday; like today. Plus the hour and a half we spend in traffic on days we have Psychology. That's definitely rough.
Here's the thing... If it's rough on me; how rough is it on Bug?
Some days, I think it would be interesting to see the world through his eyes, but other days, I don't know if I could do it. I already have sensitive hearing, but he has days where a noise can be totally ignored, but two minutes into the noise going on, it's deafening for him. There are days when he's so hypersensitive we just hide in the house all day, and I pray when I go to pull up music on my laptop it's not going to be loud. There are days when he's so hyposensitive he can run smack dab into a wall and not think twice about it.
It makes things difficult, to say the least. I just don't know if I could do what he does everyday.
I'm so proud of Bug. He has no idea what's going on with him, but he knows he's different, and yet he still pushes on.
I thank God for that.

Thanks, Mother Nature!

Post taken from my author website, but I still wanted to share with all of you!

Maybe it was because I forgot to show love to Mother Nature; maybe it's because I complained about my niece not wanting to take a nap; maybe it's because I was grumpy about my husband not being home for Mother's Day due to work... I don't know what it was, but Mother Nature decided to gift us with a tree! On our roof.
THANK GOD, our house IS intact, and structurally sound. Though we did have to evacuate long enough for our local fire department to come out and make sure of such. (THANK Y'ALL!!!) We lost the gutters on the back half of the house, and we do have to repair the fence, as well as clean up this tree.
With that being said; I will NOT be posting this Wednesday. I will, instead, be working on cleaning up the tree and excess branches. Yay, fun!
We're all safe and sound, and that I'm thankful for.

Mother's Day Brunch

Don't forget to show extra love to your mother's this weekend! My oldest cousin and I will be hosting a brunch at mine and Cowboy's itsy bitsy house for my mother, my grandmother, my aunt, Cousin (who's also a mother), plus my mother's boyfriend, my other three cousins, my niece, and the boys. Whew! Unfortunately, Cowboy will be at work, but that's okay! We'll still have lots of fun, and he'll be home Monday to spend the day with us.
For now, off to prepare for the festivities!

Sleepless Nights

Sooo, did I mention I have VERY poor sleeping habits? I do. I've tried many, many home remedies and such, and finally had to cave a few months ago to go to the doctor and talk to them about it. It was beginning to impede on my abilities as a wife, mother, and writer. In case you can't tell by the fact I'm posting this at three o'clock in the morning; the medicine they prescribed me doesn't work. I'm weary about going back to the doctor. With Cowboy being military, and Bug's sleeping problems, it's hard to worry about my own sleeping problems and ensure if in the middle of the night one of my boys needs me, if I can be there for them. So, for now, it's time to combine the natural methods I know with the medication. *Sigh* I don't have high hopes for this, but I have hope!

Happy Birthday, Mickey!

Today was my youngest, female cousin Mickey's birthday! Woohoo!
We went out for ice cream to celebrate, even though it was cold outside, and it was a blast!
It was a long day overall, though, and now I'm tired, so away to bed!
