Happy birthday to me....

Hello Dearies....

Today was my 22nd birthday (again). I had a pretty good day, even if it started out rough.

Chief and I had plans to go to Washington with MiL. He had a doctor's appointment and I wanted to poke my nose into the Walmart there.

Plans have a way of getting messed up. 

I had barely opened my eyes when I heard Bird in the bathroom throwing up. Chief just looked and me and said Happy Birthday! What a way to start my day.

Bird and I made a deal that we were going to get him out of pull up's. To do that (tmi here) I have to give him up to 6 months of diarrhea. Sounds fun doesn't it? It's a big long nasty story. But he's at the age where I'm not comfortable helping him clean up for a bath. I bought him new big boy underwear, and I'm hoping we can get this finished by the start of school.

I had given him a laxative last night. Again a nasty story we won't get into, but yes this was all my fault.  

So I got Bird cleaned up and in the tub, called MiL and cancelled our shopping/doctor trip.

I sat down and got adsorbed into Minecrack. I've been having a lot of fun playing. The Boy and Chatty came over and said they wanted to take me to lunch. I love spending time with my kids so I was happy to go.

Flash forward to noon when I was supposed to be ready to go to lunch. I had just gotten off of Minecrack and was in the tub when the kids got here. 

They wanted to take me to El Jimador's. The people that run El Jimmies are really cool, but I should have known the kids were up to something....


That's right, I got pied in the face! Damn kids.

After a quick trip to the Smoke Shop I headed home to get my fix of Minecrack again. (see a trend to my day here?)

MiL called and picked me up for a trip to Walmart to get stuff for cake and dinner. Did I mention she bought me the coolest wallet ever?

 Back home and back to Minecrack.

Chief and I made dinner together and the cake. It's nice spending time with him. We don't get near enough alone time. 

So now dinner and cake have been eaten, I've been sung to, and I got another fix of Minecrack. It's time to clean the clothes off of my bed and go to sleep. 4 am comes VERY early!

Happy birthday Bird!

Hello Dearies....

I know I've been neglecting you, and I'm sorry. Things have been so busy in the life and times of the Tribe. 

Last Sunday was Bird's birthday! My baby boy turned into a teenager. He's so amazing! When Bird was little, I was told to not get attached, he wouldn't make it to 5. Stupid doctors....they don't always know what they're talking about. (even if they think they do) The Boy and Chatty came over for dinner. I had made Bird a poke'ball cake. It's all he talked about for weeks!                              

                                               My birthday boy blowing out the candles.

Chief has been sick. His right foot is infected. He had a doctor's appointment yesterday. We weren't sure if he was going to be admitted to the hospital or not. When he called me at work and told me he was on his way home, I burst into tears. I was so worried about him. Chief has another appointment next week. So I have another week to fret and worry.

Mother's day is in 2 days. I've been trying to con the Fruitians to make me breakfast in bed. I'm betting on a pack of Poptarts for breakfast.

The female Parental Figure invited Midget and I to a mother/daughter thing tomorrow. It starts at 2. The same time I get off of work. I hope those other women don't mind me smelling like a french fry!

I've started the packing for our move. I can't wait til we get downstairs! It'll make so much easier on all of us.

I've gotten a ton of questions about the wedding. I'm going to try and make it through this part of the blog with no tears....The wedding has to be postponed. That's more of my plans falling through. Chief is still married to Colleen. He hasn't seen or heard from her in 12 years. We talked to the lawyer and it's going to cost about $750 for the divorce. And that's only IF we can find her so he can divorce her. 

I know I should have told everyone sooner. I just couldn't bring myself to admit it. It's breaking my heart. I just want to through my hands in the air and give up. I have no idea how I'm going to come up with that much money....ever. I love Chief, and I plan on spending my life with him, I'd just rather do it as his wife....
