When You're Tagged..........

Holla y'all! I've been tagged by the lovely, sweet Sheryl.

So, you want to know 6 randoms thing about me, huh? Read on my on.

1. I am not a shower singer. Never have been. I know my limits and singing is one of them. I only sing in the car when I am alone or when I am in a bar at 2:00 a.m. and do not remember that I am tone deaf.

2. I have control issues. I think I can finally admit that one. I just like things in my life to be "just so" and I have a hard time when there is chaos and not organization. At 1, Missy started lining her shoes up by pairs in her closet. Hmmmmm, maybe I put the same irrational thoughts in her??

3. There is a hummingbird outside my window right now. It's so cute and just hanging out there as if to tell me my flower boxes are just too dirty and can't be stepped on. I wonder if you can catch a hummingbird and keep it in your house.

4. Tiger hates the TV and I am secretly in love with it. All its beautiful channels and funny little shows. If it were up to him, we would get rid of all of the televisions and quit poisoning our brains. If it were up to me, I'd install one in the shower.

5. It's finals week and I couldn't be happier. I am ready to move on and past chemistry and advanced algebra! By the way, I hate my school. Since I didn't pass that one class back in January, I have to take it again in fall. Ok, fine. No big deal. Except they told me the only "room" for me is in the night program. Thank you Ivy Tech for helping ruin my life just a little bit more and complicating things again. Geez, all I want is a Nursing degree. These people are doing everything to try and stop me I think!

6. If I don't continue to lose weight for Steph's wedding, I am screwed. That dress still doesn't fit me. I'm down 6 pounds, but I really just wish I could afford liposuction. It's taking forever the hard way!

Now these 6 must be tagged. If you were already tagged, do it again and amuse. haha

1. Mimi
2. Annie
3. Milk and Honey
4. Add Humor and Faith
5. Rip Roarin and Runnin
6. Oh me oh my ...... and her wonderful men.

Oh and remember #1? Here's proof of me forgetting that I was tone deaf.

My Baby Broke Herself

Well, so far the week isn't ending like I thought it would. Tiger is out of town in Colorado. Missy was heading off last night to Michigan with my friends (I have to work all weekend, yuck). It was going to be More Than A Single Mom's BIG single weekend! I had lots of plans......dinners with my cousins on Friday, a girly movie and bubble bath all alone on Saturday, and studying in peace and quiet on Sunday. However, things never go as planned when you have children............

As we were packing the car for the girls to head to Michigan, my daughter and her friend were playing on the swing set. Didn't go so well. Missy fell and hit her face on the wooden pole of the swing set. Off to the ER we went. 2 stiches on the top. 1 stitch on the bottom.

By the way, I must say.......I am gonna be a damn good nurse. There was lots of blood. A LOT of blood. I was calm the whole time. I wish I could say the same about my friend, her daughter, and Missy. They were all crying. Whew. I am glad it's over.

I guess the girly movie and bubble bath will have to be put off...............

Wordless Wednesday - Fun With Wigs

This is my friend Steph. Her friends threw her a surprise birthday party and I got to meet lots of new people (good thing too cuz I am in her wedding and I didn't know anyone!). Anyway, we went to this surprise party. And at this party was wigs. Lots and lots of wigs. We had fun.

My First Birthday

Holla! More Than A Single Mom turns 1 today! Seriously, check out my first blog entry ever. I was just taking a few minutes to look over some of my older posts. I just crack myself up sometimes. It's neat to look at it all. Kinda like a diary -- with pictures.

So Missy turned 7 yesterday. We went to Libby soon. My little girl is growing up so fast. Looking at her makes me want another baby. Baby fever for sure in this house. I can finally say that I really do miss her younger years. I thought they were hard back then during it all because I was young and single. Heck, that was the easy stuff. Bigger kids. Bigger Problems. She'll be a teenager after I blink it seems. A teenager. Yuck. The awkward stage of life. Ok, maybe I just freaked myself out enough to hold off that having another baby thing! Ha Ha........but really, just go back to being 2 Missy. I liked 2.

What your favorite age in your kids?

A Summer Update Through Pictures

I owe my blog lots of pictures. This is More Than A Single Mom's summer so far -- in a nut shell. What better way to say it than with pictures??

First - There was summer fun in our backyard.......

Then there was a camping trip.......

Then there was 4th of July (my favorite holiday).........

Remember that tooth? Well, it finally came out! Bottom tooth, hard to see.

Last, but not least, Missy is turning 7! Happy birthday sweetie.

One Minute Inside A Woman's Head

I haven't been ignoring everyone, but I came back from camping to NO COMPUTER. It was almost like losing a child. I came home and noticed right away the bare spot on the desk. Our computer got sick while I was gone. She needed to be fixed. Stupid viruses. BUT, we are back...... and I have 10 minutes to spare before I wake the child so that I can go to school.

Lots to tell...............

  • Missy's tooth is STILL in her mouth. The back lifts out now, but the front? Still completely stuck in there. I am losing my mind over this tooth.
  • More Than A Single Mom has been sober for 48 hours........from smoking. Those that know me know just how addicted I am to smoking. When people think of me, they think of the cigarette hanging out of my mouth. Not anymore. I am trying to kick the habit - for good.
  • Will put pictures up of the camping trip soon. Not enough time this morning.
  • I think my blog site turns 1 this month!!! A whole year of blogging. Damn.
  • I have so much going on this month that I am dizzy thinking about it. I have school, work, and Missy's birthday. I have family seeing my house for the first time in 9 days and it's a wreck. Not freaking out yet though. Will start freaking out next week.
  • Me, Math, and Chemistry have been battling day and night. Man oh man, I CANNOT wait for the summer semester to be over. I'd rather be struggling through my nursing classes any day over this junk.
  • AND if my chemistry teacher tells me ONE MORE TIME that I will need this for my career I am going to scream. Last time I checked I will not need to know the difference between the element Boron and Titanium in order to help save lives. Could be wrong, but pretty sure I am not!
  • More Than A Single Mom is in a wedding of a dear, old friend from school. And she's wearing turquoise. I love the girl........but turquoise? Really? That's just cruel. So I've been on a hard work out regimen since I quit smoking (did I mention that was over 48 hours ago?). I truly believe fat people do not look good in turquoise. Oh, and did I mention the part about how I DO NOT fit in the dress. Major changes must be made.
I've got more to tell, but I must be off to make some lunches and get the little one up. Toodles my pets..........
