OCD much?

So I have to be the weirdest person I know, and John will agree! It's funny to me how some things can be a complete mess and not phase me, while small insignificant things drive me bonkers.

My bed is one of them. I DETEST wrinkled sheets. I like them crisp and tight and if you don't want me to have thought of smothering you, JOHN, then you better not mess them up.
I have had this sheet obsession from a young age. Ask my sister, she has spent many nights in the closet, where I rolled her, because she flopped around while sleeping. *yes she's that deep of a sleeper that I could push her out of bed and roll her into the closet!!!
John does it to irritate me and does and excellent job of it. But really, how hard is it for him to accept this flaw and just put the covers on the bed correctly, with the lines of the comforter lining up with the edge of the bed and the exact amount hanging off on all sides?????? lol

Any Friends fans out there...the one where Monica explains how her covers have to face a certain direction??? :) i'm that bad.
For example this drives me nutso and almost makes it difficult for me to sleep in the bed knowing my sheets are like this. I'm sure you will all suggest therapy for me now!

Do you see how the fitted sheet all the sailboats are sail towards the headboard?
OK, so why turn the sailboats upside down for the flat sheet and have them going the opposite direction?!!!
AAAAAAhhhh drives me crazy. But why not turn the fitted sheet the other way, so all the sailboats are the same direction you ask. Well let me tell much as the direction drives me crazy, to not to have the tag, on the sheet, on the lower left corner of the mattress would drive me even MORE crazier. *I told you it was bad lol

So as I avoid going to sleep in my terribly incorrectly made bed, I can't hold my eyes open any longer. I was trying to wait for the other set of sheets in the dryer so I could wake John up, change the sheets and sleep peacefully but not gonna happen. Now you can all feel sorry for John for having to live with me :)

And it goes a little something like this...

Seth: I didn't get here like brother. I didn't come from your belly.
me: Oh really, well how'd you get here then?
Seth: I hopped a bus from Mexico, then called a cab and they brought me to you.
me: *in complete shock* ohhh, you did?!!!
Seth: Yeah and that's why I know how to speak Mexico words!

ahhhhh gotta love 'em! Scary thing is, i'm pretty sure he totally believes that's how he got here. I may have been as big as a bus, but I can promise you that's not how it happened! lol


I'm super excited for Father's Day!!!!!! I've done so good hiding John's gift and almost finished with an 'extra' treat.

That's all I can so though or i'll spill the beans. Can't wait to post pictures :)

Some cute bedtime pics

Jingle Bells, the naptime guardian!

i'm 30!

So, 25 has really been the only age that has bothered me. This birthday I was actually very exciting about it. People always ask the question "So do you feel another year older?" Normally, my answer is no because the only thing that changed was my age, life went on as usual. However, this year my answer would be YES!!! I feel like i've hit a whole new something in life, and I LOVE IT!

I went to a wedding for my birthday and was excited to celebrate it that way. I'm normally a fairly self conscious person and try to hide behind my kids. Never one to want to be the center of attention, noticed or stand out. But my bday was different. I have been working on my weight, trying to eat healthier and blah blah blah. Well, one of my goals was to lose some weight and feel comfortable in a sundress and actually wear one to the wedding. So Sat came and the dress I had bought was waiting to be worn. I was a little nervous but decided to go all the way. Out came the dress, chunky jewelry, little more makeup than usual and in darker colors. And ya know felt good!

Once we got to the wedding (which was at Scarborough Faire by the way) I was 'captured' by one of the, whatever he was, and actually sang out loud and didn't feel embarrassed ~even tho John told me that my face and even my arms turned red lol.

I've always felt like a kid (sometimes I think my height has something to do with that, but that's a whole other therapy session!) and never taken seriously by some. I've always been very aware of what others have thought about me and the method we use in raising our kids. In a difference of just one day, my feelings are now i'm NOT a kid. I don't have time to worry about what you think of me, what i'm doing, how I look, or how you think I should handle my children. This new found confidence is amazing. If I had known that turning 30 would have brought this on, I would have turned 30 a long time ago. So to those of you who may be dreading it, if it treats you like it has me then i'd be saying BRING IT ON!!!!

And now for some bday pics :)
ps the unflattering pic in the car was just to show off my jewelry
