Finally...Day 10

Day 10 - A Picture of Someone You Do the Most Messed Up Things With

That would be:

Myself. Sad I know. But seeing as all my sisters live hundreds of miles away, my kids whine too much, my husband is pretty reasonable and my friends are pretty much spread out and busy; I only get to do messed up stuff with them rarely. So most of my messed up time is with myself. I spend too much money. I sing awful songs. I laugh at the stupidest stuff. I eat all sorts of delicious, unhealthy foods..... All by myself. (I'm sure the list could go on and on.)

Sometimes I wish I had someone else to do funny, messed up stuff with. Someone always comes a long once in awhile. But for the most part it is just me!

Day 12


I LOVE POP. Yes, I call it pop. Others might refer to it as cola, soda, soda pop, soft drink, drinkable sugar. Whatever you or I call it...I LOVE it. I have my favorites. Such as : Mt. Dew, Pepsi, Dr Pepper, Cherry Mt.Dew and Cherry Pepsi. But since I am trying to change my ways....(very, very, very, slowly), I usually drink Diet Dr Pepper and Diet Cherry Pepsi. But whatever the flavor, if you have it, I will drink it. Once upon a time I swore I would never drink diet soda. But then I got older and started worrying about weight ...and things happen...i got use to the stuff.

Day 11

I'm skipping Day 10 for now...I will come back to it. I just don't have the picture of Day 10 with me at the moment.

So Day 11


Well, as I sit here and think of the list of things, I come up with usual things such as


When someone says the Lords name in vain.

The bouncing of lobster or calamari in my mouth

When kids are mean to other kids.

But when I asked my kids, "What does Mommy hate?" I get the answer , "Us fighting."

So there ya have it. I hate it when my kids fight. I know it is inevitable. I know it will probably continue on and on and on and on.....and on. But maybe if I start telling them how much I love and appreciate it when it happens, it would happen less frequently?!? (Because telling them how nice they play together when that happens doesn't seem to move them enough.)

Day 9


Like my sisters post, I would name my Mom, Husband, Sisters, Friends. But the ultimate Person who is ALWAYS there for me and ALWAYS get me through everything is

Jesus Christ.

I LOVE And APPRECIATE Him and all he does for me! He is definitely my SAVIOR!

Day 8

A Picture That Makes Me Laugh

This is a series of pictures. The girls will sneak my camera to their room and the stuff they come up with is hilarious. From making themselves cry on purpose to strutting around like models. These ones are from Sam. She cracks me up.

(P.S. She has heart shaped cute!!)

Day 7

My Most Treasured ITEM

I emphasized ITEM because that is what the 'rules' said. I try not to be materialistic. Don't get me wrong, I love THINGS. I love to get them, buy them, enjoy them. But I am not at all lost or upset if THINGS are lost, broken or whatever. Yes, I acknowledge that it sucks with a "Gosh Darn It! That really bites that I don't have this THING anymore." But my world doesn't come crashing down without them. And again these are THINGS. Not people. That's a whole other treasure.

So my ITEM are these

You might not know it by the way they look. They are bent, written in, pages are missing (I have children), and most the time you can find them on my bedroom floor next to my bed. But that is why they are my most treasured item. I always use them. I would be lost without them. I wouldn't grow, learn, accomplish or know anything in this life without them. If this set gets too thrashed and too many pages go missing then I will replace them...and a 'new' set will mean the same to me. I'm growing as a wife, mother and daughter of God because of the scriptures. I am so grateful for them.

Day 6

Someone I Would Trade Places with for a Day

Hermione Granger (5th year or older) - She's young, cute, smart, brave...and a WIZARD! How totally awesome would it be to be a WIZARD. Casting spells! Making potions! Oh if I had a magic wand...the things i could do and accomplish.

Day 5

A Picture of My Favorite Memory

There are sooo many! So many great moments in my life. But the one time I will always remember...until I forget is ....The Night Time Winter Walk. (I just made up the title for my I can't ever forget it!)

Before Riggles and I got married....we lived together. *GASP* I know, I know totally sinful. These were great times. One night in particular it was snowing like crazy. We lived in this tiny, little, population 2100 town. The night was so quiet. Nobody was out. He always works night shifts so being up late was a normal and still is a normal thing for us. We decided to go for a walk. It was so beautiful and peaceful. We went sliding on the road...(when you run few steps and then slide across on your feet like foot surfing I guess.) We did it so much in one spot on 'Fair Ave' we made the road a sheet of ice. We went to the park and went down the super, slick slide. We walked up a few blocks to where one of the Officers lived the Apartments. He was always up at night too. We new we could get a snack and drink there because this dude only ate meat sticks and drank Pespsi. Then we headed home. The only picture I have of this memory is the one in my head. And the one I'm posting can't do a memory like that justice. It's just that kind of moment!!!

Day 4

So today I am suppose to post my most favorite night. I have been thinking about it ALL day. Now, finally at 9:00 PM, I ask my husband..."What is my favorite night?" His response,
"Can be tonight if you hurry up and get in bed!"

But for reals...the one night I keep thinking about every time I ponder this question is this:

The night the Mister agreed to make baby number 4. Here is the picture that goes with it. ;)

Because of this movie, (and the many, many pleadings with my Heavenly Father) My husband changed his, once was made up, mind to add to our family.

This night reminds me that God knows us and our deepest wants and desires. He gives us knowledge and we gain more faith because of all these things he does for us.

Day 3

The Cast from the Show I love to watch....Ummmm....there is no particular cast...There is no particular show. I DVR and enjoy these:

  • Tosh.O

  • Glee

  • Raising Hope

But for the most part. The channel I turn to and watch the most....and it is a

When the Laundry is Done.....

I had a bit of time on my hands I took these...

Cut out and Painted these..

and turned it into these.

Day 2

The Person I'm closest too.

That would be the Mister....I guess. Ok, he really is! but for the past couple of days he has been pissy with me and I have been pissy with him so we are kind of pissy. So right now we don't seem to be the closest..but we are still playing Halo together like crazy. And talking to each other. But there is that little bit of tension that we can definitely feel...and we aren't really acting normally. You know what I mean? Person is Mr. Riggles. If you want the a cute little 'how it happened' story click HERE.

On Thursday

So we are trying to save money. Last spring Riggles traded in our his cute Toyota Tacoma for a gas efficient Toyota Prius. (go0d for us). You can read and laugh about that HERE. I finally decided to do the same. To save gas money, payment money and my growing children's legs,

we traded this

for this

One of my dream cars (you know when you have your list of what I want to drive when I grow up) was always a 4 runner with the 3rd back seat. And now I'm giving it up.

Sad? Yes! Heartbreaking? No.

Here is the heart breaker.

Ben E had a bad case of Croup. We decided Riggles told me to take him in to Urgent care because the Strider was really bad and we couldn't get his fever to go down. He had it pretty bad even just laying around still. Urgent care gave him the steroid and the breathing treatment. It didn't work so they sent us to the children's hospital ER and told us to expect to stay the night. After hours of waiting and watching (mostly waiting) in the ER waiting room they took us into a room and gave him another breathing treatment.

And then we were able to come home.

An effort to save money never seems to work. As soon as we take care of one payment somewhere or sacrifice spending on something to save cash....something comes up where you realize....IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN! Something is always going to be thrown in your way so you can't get ahead.

I'm so glad that my baby boy is on the mend. But kinda bummed my effort to save money and get out of debt is going to take longer if it ever happens at all. I have really good insurance and I'm really grateful for it. But I'm expecting big bills with an ER and Urgent Care visit.

My feelings as of this moment: Some families, especially with youngin's, need to have financial hardships. So many things are learned and acquired when going through these times of life. I would hate to miss out on the blessings and knowledge gained from of these trials.

FYI - I have written two paragraphs for this post and deleted them both. Nothing I want to say is coming out right. Nothing sounds like I make any sense and every thing I have a question for, I all ready know the stinkin' answer. So to describe my week I will post this: My Spirtual Roller Coaster Ride

Here are the things I needs to do to fix it:

  • Read Scriptures daily. (I have slacked so much this past month..and even worse I know that is why I'm in the spot I am...and haven't fixed it yet)

  • Apply what I learned from General Conference (Especially Elder Robbins talk)

  • CHOOSE to get out of it. If I don't like where I'm at, move! Duh! (This is attitude not physical location btw)

  • PRAY daily.

I know these are always the answers. I know these are the things that keep us from getting down. And yet they are so simple that we or maybe just I think I can go without them for a day or two and be just fine. Me is so not smarts sometimeses. ;)
