Day 2 and more Ramblings

Day 2 of trying to write everyday. I’m going to have to do some research to figure out what I’m going to write, because my life isn’t very exciting. And I’m very glad about that.

I was rereading past posts of mine, and I came to realize I posted a lot about things I didn’t do in my life.  This is a pagan homemaking (ish) blog but I hate homemaking. I hate cleaning. I hate dishes. The whole works. I really hate schedules.  Tell me what needs to be done by such and such time and it’ll get done. I just like doing it on my time and my way.

Anyways, I do need to figure out some way to get more energy during the day. And more sleep in my actual bed at night. My youngest, Loki, is still waking up at night. He’s 20 months old but doesn’t change the fact.  And because the Hubby works in construction, I get up with the kids at night.  He could and would if I asked him to, but I have the “luxury” of being home during the day so I could sleep if wanted. He doesn’t.  His co-workers have always been jealous of that fact.

Well, there day 2 is done. Maybe tomorrow will be a better blog worthy day.

NaBloPoMo 2012

Life can be quite interesting, can’t it? My last post on this blog was back in July 2011. I could use a bunch of excuses of why I haven’t posted, but I won’t. We’ll start anew.

NaBloPoMo 2012 ~ While I do want to do NaWriPoMo (write 50,000 word novel in the month of November) I don’t think I can just yet. So trying to blog everyday in the month of November? I think I can do that.

Halloween was last night, and I still ache from the walking around. I went in drag, but with heels. And I had a Beyblade battler (my oldest), a unicorn (the DD) and a blue ninja (youngest). The kids made a good haul and had tons of fun.

Thanksgiving is later this month. I love Thanksgiving because of all the food. As much as I’m glad to not live near family (lack of drama), I miss ALL THE FOOD! That living around family during the holidays bring.

The hubby is awesome. That man is doing work full time ~ concrete construction ~ and is going to school online full time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Long Break~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sorry, had to break up fights between the youngest two, answer the phone, make know mommy stuff.

Anyways as I was saying. My Hubby is awesome, with all that he has to do, he still has time to play with the kids, cuddle with me and overall has no complaints.

So yea. There we go!

Hair loss

My one main vanity is my hair. I love my hair. But sadly it seems my hair doesn’t like me. I am 25 years old and I have bald spots.

Yes my hair will grow back. My hair lost isn’t because of genetics, it’s from improper diet. I knew I would have a hard time eating after getting my teeth removed on April 28th, but I don’t think I really knew. I used my little nubs of teeth more than I had realized. I am getting dentures, but I still have 2 more impressions to do before they are done.

So much to my husband’s and best friend’s dismay, I am seriously considering shaving my head. Or maybe a mohawk thingy. If I’m going to lose my hair, I want it to be on MY  terms, not my head.

I give my hair one more week, if the hair loss contuties majorly even thou I have my Boost drinks, taking extra vitamens and trying to eat more meat (my main thing I can’t eat well right now.) then my husband may come home from work one day to a shaved wife.

Winter blues and Changes

Ah, the lovely (not) winter blues have set in on the Spider household.  Mainly me and the Hubby.  I can’t wait until we can go outside without worry about frostbite, hypothermia and the like.  I dream of green grass, flowers blooming, digging my hands into soft earth planting a garden.  Hearing the kids run around laughing and screaming with joy.  Ah, such is the life!

I’m handling the W.B. pretty well once I decided to not let them get to me, but alas they are hitting Hubby
pretty hard right now.  The constant wind here in North Dakota isn’t helping much neither.  I do what I can for him ~ like this weekend we are going to load up on orange juice with vitamin D and possibly get some multi-vitamins for him as well.

I felt the need to change the layout a bit ~ haven’t finished yet but will hopefully soon!

I’ve also decided to change my routine a bit.  Usually after everyone else goes to bed I stay up to have some peace and quiet.  I don’t go to bed until usually midnight or later.  I’m now going to try and get up when Hubby does at 5:30 am and go to bed soon after he does.  Not at the same time because he actually falls asleep faster and easier when I’m not in the bed. LOL.   With me getting up when he does ~ and the kids not normally getting up until 7:30 or later, I’ll be able to get my “quiet” in the morning ~ hopefully blogging while I drink my tea and fully wake up!

Bud awhile ago got a hold of my camera ~ me not thinking much of it except telling him to get his own ~ and lost my memory card!! The bugger!  It was an Xd card so it’s not like I can swipe the memory card out of his camera either.  So picture taking has come to a halt.  If I want to take quality pictures with my camera I can only hold like 3 pictures at a time with the built in memory ~ I can’t handle that.  So once we have the money I’m buying a new memory card!

We’ve also bought Lil’ Miss a potty chair last weekend.  She’s only 16 months old so we’re not pushing the potty issue but she has expressed the want to use the potty.  She’s very cute.  To get her to sit longer on her chair she has a “potty book”.  It’s actually Bambi but she only gets to read it when she’s on the potty.  At first she didn’t like me taking it back once she got of the potty but now she hands it to me when she gets off.

Bud is also starting to wake up dry in the morning so soon we won’t have to buy nighttime pull-ups!  I’m so happy!

Well that’s what’s happening on my side of the woods ~ how’s everyone else?


So what’s been going on my end of the world?  Lots!

  • I made my neighbor a pair of fingerless gloves just before Christmas ~ she wore them all the time at her work (in an office) and all her co-workers loved them.  So I got the crazy idea that maybe I could make a little money selling them.  I say crazy idea because I have currently already sold 6 pairs and have orders for 5 more.  So to say the least my hands and wrists are a little sore from crocheting so much.
  • It took hubby over 2 hours Tuesday night to drive 26 miles.  Why?  There was zero visibility because of the blizzard that blew in here.  It’s been a whole -6F all day!  Cold, cold, cold!
  • Bud got a Vtech Write & Learn for Christmas, and he is actually spelling on it.  If you ask him while he’s not playing he won’t spell any of the words he just spelled so I don’t know if he’s actually “learning” or just getting a really, really good memory of what the game wants.
  • Bud’s birthday is on the 21st of this month.  I can’t believe he’s going to be 4 years old!  Where did the time go?
  • Did I mention it’s really cold?
  • My mouth is starting to get really bad, but I can’t do a whole lot about it right now.  While I could go to the dentist, all they would really be able to do right now is just pull them out.  While I want that done, I don’t want to be toothless ~ without my falsies.  We have a wedding to go to in May, and then Hubby needs to go back to Phoenix to get his Camaro that we had to leave there when we left.  My teeth will get done, eventually.  I just got to find more better ways to kill the pain.  Any ideas?
  • The other day I laid Lil’ Miss down for a nap ~ a nap that she told me (with points and tugs) she wanted to take.  About 5 minutes later, while I was sitting at the computer, here she comes walking and smiling at me.  The little stinker climbed out of her bed!  She sleeps in a port-a-crib right now so luckily she had no real  “fall” for me to worry about.  We’ll be getting a toddler bed come late spring from my neighbor.  She has an old one up at their cabin.  Lil’ Miss hasn’t climbed out since but I now know she can.

See, I’ve had a fun filled time! 

I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly section/topic about the many Goddess and how to bring them into your everyday life, would that interest you?
Also, all my blogging mommies that read this…How do you find time to blog regularly?  I need to be able to think when I blog and that only happens after the kids (both of them) are in bed.  I don’t wake up before them, so I can’t do it in the mornings (not that I’m functional before 9am.)  I don’t want to leave this blog hanging, I’m just finding a hard time balancing everything.  I’ll keep trying thou!


Theme for the Year

I have decided that this year will have a theme. Just a single word but with it, a direction. I made my resolutions, which I will do my best to fulfill. And that’s my theme ~ Fulfillment (does anyone else think there should be two “LL”s in full?).

I don’t plan on filling up my life with a bunch of stuff, I want to create within myself the sense of fulfillment with what I already have. My health, the health of my children and husband ~ a house that is becoming a home ~ food in the cupboards ~ good friends and neighbors ~ a good job.

There are days where I’m already “there” with that feeling. And yet there are still days where I feel like I’m failing ~ falling, trying to “keep up with the Jones’s” I will never have as clean a house as others ~ two little kids and a construction working husband defeat many efforts ~ but we want for NO need. There are of course “wants” we think we need, but we don’t really. Our wants will get bought or made in good time, there is no rush to get them, no need to worry about getting them ~ they will get to us when it is time.

Affirmation: I got these from my Mother, Lady Silverhorn.

I express the joy of living. I allow myself to enjoy every moment of every day totally. I love myself. I am safe and secure.

Have a Fulfilling day!
