Good Morning Mama

Curse the cuteness of my two sons.

All I wanted to do is roll over in bed and ignore them so that I can get a few more minutes of sleep, but no they have to be adorable little snots.

Logan was up bright and early at 6:35 and quietly ran out into the front room to cuddle with Grandma in our big brown lazy boy and watch the Disney Channel. Okay I can still sleep for a bit, sweet! Nope, 6:40 over the baby monitor I hear Liam in his little morning voice "Mama?" and with an effort I roll out of bed to go greet the morning with the cute little buggers that are my sons. :)

Not much on the agenda to do today as I have today off of work which is odd, normally I work Friday and have Saturday off; as most of the deliveries come Monday-Friday, but I'm not going to complain. My plan for the day is make some brownies < for the family and someone special ;) >, do the laundry, throw something into the crock pot for dinner tonight (recipe for Brownies will follow at end of post), and maybe play some video games? But who knows :)

I suppose that it is all for now. Oh I started another blog called "Blogging Zombies?!" read it if you get the chance and let me know what you think.

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

I'm horrible at this :)

Yeah I know, I complete suck at updating my blog. In fact its been just over a year since I've even really thought about it. Depressing!

Turning over a new leaf though I'm going to try and be really a lot better about updating this, as it is another means for family to keep up on the latest involving my little family unit :)

Logan has turned 4, amazing how quickly the time flies and man did it fly by! Such a smart amazing boy that I have been blessed with though it's not all butterflies and rainbows all the time, he's a little spitfire when he wants to be but he's a loving soul through and through. It's a blessing because some days I want to lock him and his attitude in their room.

Started a new job back in the end of Feburary at a local garden nursery center called "Sun River Gardens", I finally snapped at "Harmons" and almost went 'postal' on everybody ;) but I am much happier at my new job and my new 'title' of Inventory & Receiving Agent. Oh it sounds so cool, don't hate ;)

Anyways long story short, I'm still as much of a dork as ever and have come back to make people suffer my dorky awesomeness.

You have been warned :)

p.s I hate my mouse it drives me bonkers
