Good Job Nick

My nephew Nick has received an awesome recognition from his school. He just graduated (thats why we went to MO) and at his Banquet he was named Sports Star of the Year!!! He played Football and did Track and was really good at both - obviously. In fact while we were there for graduation they missed going to State for track by just 1 point - boo. Anyway I just wanted to brag on him a bit - he's a good kid and this came as a wonderful surprise to him.

We are back!!!!

We got back from Missouri yesterday afternoon. Zilla and I, along with my in-laws, went there for my nephews High School Graduation. The trip was um lets see how can I say this nicely - I'll call it interesting.

Zilla was sick and did NOT enjoy the plane rides there (nor did the other passengers who had to listen to him) so that was how it started and it didn't get much better. We have been working on sharing with Zilla and he demonstrated his new skills by sharing his cold with me - how nice right? We had some nap/schedule issues and some teenage meltdown problems and I didn't actually get to "see" the graduation because my turd of a son refused to nap before hand and had to be walked around the school the whole time! We did have a good time at the Zoo (which is free - how cool is that?), Grants Farm was very pretty, and I got to see the Arch and the Mississippi river!

Overall I just have to say that I'm REALLY glad that we are home and I NEVER again will travel by myself with a toddler!!!

I will post pictures when I get them all loaded!

Let the Fun Begin

This fun day started last night when Zilla woke up like 3 or 4 times coughing and screaming. Luckily he went back to sleep each time but it still made for a LONG night. He then woke up bright and early at 6am. Did mommy have the coffee maker set to have a cup when she woke up? No she was too busy last night fooling around with her blog and photobucket to mess with that crap - good job me!

The fun didn't end last night Zilla woke up this morning with a lovely cough, a snotty nose and some great congestion. This will make for a perfect flight and trip. I'm just gonna pray that he gets well like well NOW! Just in case though I'm bringing the benedryl. He isn't being too cranky yet so maybe I'll luck out on this one - or he's saving it for the flight who knows. Guess we'll have to wait and see!!

Tomorrow is the Day

Zilla and I are leaving for Missouri for my nephew's High School Graduation. We are flying out and my In-laws are meeting us at the airport. It *might* be a fun journey but I'm not holding my breath or anything. I've never flown with Zilla before and well since he doesn't really enjoy sitting still for even a few minutes I'm guessing it won't be that fun. I will then probably have to chase him around and deal with his turd self becuase we will be crossing over a time zone so his schedule will be all jacked up. I'm looking forward to Monday when we will be flying home. Pray that all goes well and I don't hurt anyone k? Thanks

My Zilla

I got Zilla a tee ball set and he is getting pretty good with it! He even grabbed it corrently and made one really good shot! So here is the little slugger in action:

In the pool with one of his best buddies ~ they are just SO funny together!

I love sleep!

I'm very excited because my sweet little Zilla let me sleep in until 7:30 this morning. Thats REALLY good for him because he's normally a very early riser which means that I get to be an early riser too. I love it when he sleeps late - it doesn't happen very often so I cherish the days it does. So THANKS Zilla mommy totally appreciates it!

Happy Mommy's Day to Me!

Well today is Mothers Day and all over the US there are kids and dads showering mommies with love and gifts. Well except here LOL My hubby is deployed and my son doesn't have a clue so today is kinda just like any other. We are having a thunderstorm so our stupid direct tv went out so that means I've been watching a lovely Diego marathon all morning. Talk about a Mothers Day full of fun! Well maybe next year!

C25K update

I had someone (Sam) ask in the comment section about the Couch 2 5K. Well Sam I am still doing week 3 because last week I attempted to do two of the days on my home treadmill. Well that was a mistake it doesn't have as much cushion for my joints when I'm running so I will do this at the gym from now on. So anyway I'm doing week three again this week. I don't know if your still on week two but week three is certainly a little different.

I am not personally using the times/distances on the coolrunning site but instead I do my running in time with these podcasts This guy has podcasts that you can download and he tells you when to run and when to walk. So if your not using them it might be a little different. BUT in week three he has us warmup walk then it's: run 90sec walk 90sec, run 3 min walk 3 min, run 90sec walk 90sec, run 3 minutes, cool down.

On the treadmill at the gym I can get through this with no problems and I'm certianly NOT a runner. Hope that helps you out!

Updated: Thanks Sam for explaining the whole link thing - hopefully I did it You are right those podcasts are based on the coolrunning site but I think the times are slightly different from what I remember on the site. I LOVE them though and wouldn't be able to do it otherwise. Good luck with the running - I hope your enjoying it as much as I am!


Yesterday was eventful to say the least. My little Zilla was sick so needless to say we didn't have a fun day! The night before he didn't want to eat much, puked on the floor, had a low fever, and was just not acting like himself. So when he woke up at 4AM (WTH!?!?!? not a morning person here people) I just knew he was really sick. He had a fever of 103.6 pretty much all day so he was loaded with tylenol and mortin all day. So he kinda just laid around and if he wasn't laying down he was walking around like a zombie! He didn't want to eat so I took him to Publix to get some bananas, yogurt and grapes - the things I knew he would eat. At Publix he proceeded to blowout poo on the floor and his clothes! That was a fun clean up - or not. Back at home he was watching his beloved Diego and he fell asleep on the floor at 4:30PM! I put him back in his bed about 5 something and he slept until 6 this morning!

One Year Down

Wow today it's been One year since DaddyZilla left for his deployment. Whats weird is that it seems like he's been gone forever but at the same time it doesn't feel like a year. He's still got several months left on his deployment but it is coming up soon. I can't wait til he gets home though. I know that Zilla and I miss him like crazy and it will be good to have him home. I sure could use the help with the crazy toddler in my house, the house itself and the dog!

It has been one crazy year and I want to give props to all single moms out there (including my own awesome mom) because this gig isn't something to sneeze at! It's been hard but it's almost over and Daddy will be home shortly!! I know that Zilla will be very excited to have him home! Oh and so will I!!!

This is Zilla and DaddyZilla the day he left!

Zilla Now:

Doggone fun!

Later this month Zilla and I are flying to see my nephew's high school graduation so that left me with a problem: the dog and what to do with her. Well one of my friends is obviously crazy cause she aggreed to take on Daisy (um she already has 4 dogs!) while we are gone. So today I brought Daisy over to make sure that the dogs could be friendly and not try to kill each other. It went FABULOUSLY - the dogs all loved each other and made fast friends. Daisy didn't know what to do with all the new and exciting smells! She made two specail friendships; one with copper - who was her play buddy and one with Mischa who is a fellow Catahoula Leopard Dog.

It was just great - I love watching my puppy (haha - yeah my 90 pound puppy) play and be happy. She was so happy that I should just leave her there - haha again - Zilla would cry if she left cause he loves her for some reason even though she could care less. I'm just glad to know that Daisy will be well taken care of and that she'll be having fun too. She'll probably sleep for a week when we come home LOL.

Dang catalogs

I want to state that lately I've been getting lots of catalogs - but I don't mind since most are overpriced crap and I throw them out. Calm down I would recycle people but we don't have that here! Anyway I get the Pottery Barn Catalogs - I HATE HATE HATE them! They have all kinds of awesomely cool stuff that I LOVE but can not afford. Or well some of it we can afford but I can't make myself pay that for it! Why must they torture me with these catalogs ever week weeks? Make them stop!!!

Ruined Day

It amazes me how one conversation can just totally ruin your whole day. I mean you could be feeling just great and BAM you are in a total funk just because one person decides that they want to be a jerk to you. It's not really fair.

Update: Said person apologized and all is well again!
