12 years

Hard to believe that 12 years ago we were arriving in Vegas for our wedding. Crazy sauce. 2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 houses, and 3 kids later, I guess maybe it has been 12 years...

Last year we celebrated by going out to dinner--first time leaving Annalise with anyone...seeing as I was only 3 weeks s/p c-section, it's not surprising. This year we're going away for a night, but it's only the second time I've been away from her. I am so looking forward to sleep. Sad, no?

Anyway, I hope the next 12 years are even better than the last 12, but better not include 3 more kids....

New toy

just got a kindle fire HD. sadly it's not as great as I thought it'd be, or I'm.just extremely prickly after having . an iPhone since January 2008. notice my shifty typing. first if all, I'm used to the layout and nuances of the iPhone. secondly this fucker is big. no easy way to hold it in bed.

ok have to stop now, it's pissing me off with shitty auto correct and what not. fuuuuuck


I feel like nothing is happening right now.

I have this stupid class looming over my head, but I have zero motivation to complete. All that is required is the final test (90 minutes, open book/notes) and I had no troubled with the midterm. Not sure what the hold up is on my part. Once I complete the test, I have a 30-40 slide presentation to complete and then narrate. This is what I'm worried about :-/

I don't have the best PowerPoint skills, and I hate doing voice overs in that program. But...I just need to suck it up and do it.

Once those 2 pesky things are finished, I'm DONE with school. I will have earned my BS in Healthcare Administration. Yay! But nothing exciting happens. Guess I should find a new job?

So long

Today seemed to drag on forever. I only had 2 patients at work, both in the morning. Had a 2 hour meeting at lunch--I was talked into joining the employee council. Only did paperwork/computer work (i.e. fix people's mistakes) in the afternoon. Oh, and slowly work my way through the sisterwives blog. Exciting, no? Thank God I'm not paid per patient :-/

For dinner I decided to make chicken taco chili...I've been trying so many new recipes that haven't been favorites, and it discourages me. This turned out great, as usual, and everyone enjoyed it + the tortilla land tortillas. Even enough leftovers for both Tom and I have lunch tomorrow.

I didn't nothing else tonight, even though I still have 1 pesky class to finish (fuck only 2 weeks left :-/), and I need to start working out routinely.

Maybe tomorrow???

Ps. This is how Jake and Clara decided to change Annalise's diaper....

Just for kicks

I thought that Facebook+twitter+instagram+pinterest just wasn't quite enough, so why not adds new blog to the mix?

I'm Mary, married to Tom, mom to Jacob, 11, Clara, 9, and Annalise, 1. I work full time as a medical imaging professional (snort), and try to stay on top of everything we have going on. I am finishing my final class for my BS in healthcare administration degree, which was completed entirely online via an overly religious school.

I like to create. Currently that means baking and cooking, but I enjoy crafty type things as well as scrapbooking and fine arts. I want to take piano lessons.

I intend for this blog to be a place in which I can talk about stuff at work, things with the kids, what's going on in the kitchen, and anything new and fun in our lives.

You should know a few things about me.

1.) I swear way too fucking much.
2.) I post too many pictures of annalise.
3.) I will most likely be a sporadic writer.
4.) I will probably complain too much.
5.) I don't actually expect anyone to read this, but if so, let me know! Then I might not swear so much (or maybe more?) and it might be a little more interesting?

On that note, I'm going to bed. I posted on twitter over 90 minutes ago that I was going to bed. I'm so full of shit.
