Five Question Friday!!!!!

My Little Life

Five Question Friday!!!! YEAH!!!!!

1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song? Yes and No. No I would NEVER do it in public. Not a chance. Now, on the other hand, put me in a car ALONE with a great radio or CD and watch out. I LOVE IT but of course, the people driving next to me and the ones at the red light think I have LOST my mind.
2. What is your favorite coffee drink? Skinny Vanilla Latte with Half Vanilla. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be? I have never considered that. On the other hand when I was in school, I was called Kim more than my own name. Even now, I still get it if I leave a message on a patient's voice mail. I get a return call to KIM!!!! THEY DON'T SOUND ALIKE!!!!!!
4. Were you ever bullied? No, I would not called it bullied. It was more of a problem as the "big-girl" but it was short lived. High School was 5'3" and 125 pounds so there was NO more of that!!!!!
5. How often do you eat fast food? WAY TO MUCH!!!!! Especially if stressed. Chick-Fil-A is my weakness. The stress, the waffle fries, the chicken with that silly little pickle and it just makes everything "feel" better UNTIL I get on the scale!!!!! That is why I am not the 5'3" and 125 pound high schooler anymore.....hahahahaha
JUMP ON IN!!!!! LINK UP!!!!! LOTS OF FUN!!!!!!!

Wordless Wednesday

NOT!!!!! At least not here.
Just wanted to let you know that we have a little girl that is going to be on her way shortly. Her Mom and Dad are so excited!!!!!! Just waiting for the "Real" labor to start. She is home, eating, drinking, resting, showering, all the things that you do when you are in early labor!!!! You go Girl!!!!!.

Also yesterday in my Stream of Consciousness, I was having a pity party. Yes, we all have those days and I don't believe for a second that I am alone in that. All of that to say....Today is a new day. It's going to be a GREAT day because He gave me another day!!!!!!!

I'll keep you posted on the Little One's arrival!!!!!!

Stream of Consciousness

I had seen this over on McMama's blog and have read through it a few times. It's kind of that time when she just blogs whatever is on her mind and that is what you end up with for the post. So, McMama, I chose to have "Stream" today. Many thoughts going through my head......

I worked last night for 2 hours and figured out how to get a 3 column blog. I JUST LOVE IT!!!!!! How do you like it?????? I am going to keep tweaking things but just needed something new and exciting. Of course, my little one noticed, there is no baby. That will be fixed shortly I hope. I just have to read and figure that one out.

Went to the gym last night. About time, right? Well, being the over confident woman that I am, I jump on the scale in the locker room. DEVASTATED!!!! In my 10 days of mindless eating and non-gym-going I managed to gain 10 pounds. I was totally bumbed. To the point of wanting to go and tell my husband, "I can't work out. There is no way!!" The tears just stung while I walked into the gym. The workout that I had planned DID NOT happen. I was so disappointed.

Got the phone call that no one wants when you have a little one in daycare. Kaleb bit someone. I mean REALLY bit someone. I know that he is soooo strong willed and stubborn to an extent but he has always been "The Bitten", not "The Bit-e". He was fussing over a toy and chose to take things into his own hands, or should I say mouth. What do you do when he's 3. He knows what he did was wrong but within 10 minutes, he's over it and moved on and I am still trying to figure out a way to "discuss" it with him.

Work is difficult these days. We have so much going on and so much to do. We are going to EMR (Electronic Medical Records) and I know once we are in it we will be a lot better off. Yet, right now things are 1/2 computer and 1/2 paper. Talk about a pain. Seems like every time I turn around someone adds something else to my plate and those are the days I want to tell them...."I'm done. I am going to be a SAHM and be happy and content". Now, will I ever do such a thing......probably not. Not unless my hubby says Yes. I'm still praying for that day!!!!

Well, I guess this stream is done for now. Sorry to bore you. It's been one of "those" few days.
The positive side is.......There is a little girl on the way.....SOON!!!! Keep stopping in and checking. I shouldn't be much longer!!!!!!

Not Me Monday

I have been sick this weekend with the Crud so there is not a lot to share.

I DID NOT, just this morning, allow our 3 year old to find a can of Cars Chicken Noodle Soup in the pantry.

Once he spotted it, the morning went like this.....

Me-Kaleb, I hope you have a good day.

Kaleb- Lightin' McQueen Can

Me- Kaleb, Would you like to go and play with the cars at the gym tonight?

Kaleb-I got Lightin' McQueen Can

Me- Mommy love you sweetie.

Kaleb-I got Lightin' McQueen Can

Me- Let's go for a ride in Daddy's truck

Once he is buckled in, Peaches, the dog, attempts to sniff the can.

Kaleb- NO!!! Peaches. My Lightin' McQueen Can. That's not nice

Me- I love you baby

Kaleb-I wuv you----I have Lightin' McQueen can

My husband called me 5 minutes later and in the 5 minutes to the Freeway, he had said it 18 times. Going to be a VERY long ride this morning.

Who knew a can of soup could make a 3 year old so happy!!!!!

Happy Not Me Monday!!!!!!

Super Supper Saturday and Sunday

So, we are back on track with the whole idea of "Mass Cooking". I think that the key is to figure out what your family likes to eat and run with it.
This past week has been a really good week. We have had some changes and at the same time, we always have the standbys that we like, especially Kaleb.
Kaleb is my picky eater to some extent. He will not eat meat unless it is a cheeseburger from McDonald's. No hamburger, roast, chicken, chili meat, pork chops, or even seafood. Nope. Not even a bite. Now rumor has it that he will eat these things at school but I think it is because the other children are eating it and he is following them. I have never understood why he will follow them and not Bo and I.
This week I chose to put what we have available for the week on the sidebar so that you can see it. Of course, any time you would like to know what it is, how we prepared it, feel free to ask. I would love to share.
I'm thinking about starting a recipe blog but I am just not sure I have enough to share on there to keep one up. We will continue to ponder that for a little while longer and I will let you know what I decide to do with that.
How do you get ready for your week? Do you meal plan each week? Do you eat out a lot? Please share your thoughts and ideas. I would love to hear them.

Five Question Friday

My Little Life
1. Have you ever hit an animal with your vehicle? Yes, Thankfully it was already dead in the road. Yet, running over what felt like a huge boulder in the road, was such a disgusting thought. I literally thought I was going to throw-up. It was a dark night driving with 2 children in the car and the oldest says "Mom, watch out there's a......" BUMP BUMP!!!! dead opossum in the road. It was just gross!!!! I can still hear it. I have also been hit by an animal. Yes, driving down 29 here in Greensboro. Out of the corner of my eye there is a deer coming full speed. I just knew I was going to slam right into it. Traffic behind me, in front of me, next to me. There was no where to go. The thing runs and slams into the side of my car and then turns around and runs back to where he came from. I pulled off and tried to get a grip on what just happened. Look in my mirror and there is pick-up with 2 guys. Stop, get out of the truck and go across the field to get the above mentioned deer for dinner I guess. All pretty weird. Try explaining to the insurance company claims person....."The deer HIT ME! I DID NOT hit the deer!!!" So, yes, I hit one and one hit me.
2. When you see a string on your clothes do you pull it off or cut if off? Typically I cut it off. One pull and your entire shirt, your pants, underwear, or sock can come unraveled and fall to the floor.
3. Did you have your own room or share a room when you were young? No, I always had my own room. Very glad about that.
4. Would you rather wear the same thing for the rest of your life or eat the same thing for the rest of your life? Rather wear the same thing. If I had a choice.......Pajama pants and my husbands T-shirt, and furry socks.
5. What was your favorite TV show as a child? I would have to say......... Probably "Looney Tunes" on Saturday morning. Buggs, Elmer Fudd, The Rooster (can't remember his name) It was my favorite. They just don't do cartoons like that anymore.

So, it's your turn. Jump on to Five Question Friday. I just love it!!!!!!

Before and After Pictures!!!!!

Thinking this week about where I was and where I am. What in the world am I talking about? Well, I have mentioned several times in recent post about my dealings with weight loss and the old "battle of the bulge".
Well, my battle has been fought long and hard. The week before Valentines was, for whatever reason, very difficult for me. I literally ate whatever, whenever and DID NOT GO TO THE GYM ONE DAY!!!! Crazy I know, but that is the truth. This past Sunday, on Valentines' Day, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror taking care of Kaleb and my immediate thought was...........'Oh NO!!!! SHE IS COMING BACK!!!!!' I was totally blown away. It was all I could do to finish what I had started with Kaleb and not literally want to fall apart.
What happened?
What was I thinking this past week? I had lunch with a BFF at a Mexican Restaurant on Wednesday, lunch with another BFF on Thursday and then came back to the office to proceed to eat at a baby shower we were having, Saturday was back out to eat with my wonderful hubby for Mexican (by the way, I LOVE Mexican food). Sunday was just snacking and nibbling on the Mass Cooking I was doing.
I have talked before about what I looked like way back when on here but have never posted one of "those" is the day. Call it "Before and After". The next 2 pictures are, to me, horrible!!!! It literally makes me ill. I have them posted in my office to remind me of where I don't ever want to be again.

Yes, that is me in the blue sweater (above) and the red one(below). I felt horrible!!!!

Obviously, they did not work last week. I've now moved them to my computer screen and off of the cork board so they are right in front of me. NO EXCUSES!!!!!!
This week has been a turning point and I am going to stick to this or ELSE (I'm not sure what the ELSE is but it won't be pretty). I CAN NOT AND MUST NOT GO BACK!!!! I literally have no clothes in my closet that I can slip back into. It would require me to buy clothes and I REFUSE to do that!!!!!
This has been a real struggle for me. When the weight is up, the self-esteem is at an all time LOW! When the weight is up, I feel so down! It is time to get with it and get it off!!!!!! Stick with me and I can encourage you if you need it and you can encourage me if you are on this journey as well. I REFUSE to let this battle win!!!!!!
This was me 2 weeks ago. Yes, there is a difference but I want a BIGGER difference!!!!!!! Join me????

Cardboard and Sharpies

I had seen this on Kelly's blog called Kelly's Korner and then the other day I saw it on Nikki's blog. I must confess that I did not take the time to watch the video. Well, I finally stopped long enough to sit and watch it.
Totally speechless. I was in tears within the first 30 seconds of the video. You have to watch the whole thing. Amazing!!!! God is SOOOO good to us.
What would your Cardboard and Sharpies say for you?????

Not My Child Monday

Not My Child !!!!

My Child DID NOT go in his room and in the quiet of the morning proceed to have a "Rock Mess" on the floor. We are working VERY hard on potty training and I had gone to get a pull-up and when I asked....."Where did the Rock Mess come from?"........With those ever so sweet eyes and that innocent expression on his face, he very simply said "My hinnie". What could I say after that.

My Child DID NOT have a very long discussion with me about his car having a "boo-boo knee" when cars simply don't have knees. Evidently "Sally" (from the movie Cars) has a knee. Who knew?????

What have you and your little one's been up to lately????

Five Question Friday

My Little Life

Five Question Friday!!!!!!
1. What is the one thing your love does for you that you can't live without?
ENCOURAGEMENT!!!!! No matter how crazy an idea, He is the first one to tell me....Go For It!!!! I may fall flat on my face BUT he is right behind me and I can never say I didn't try!!!!!

2. When did you know your love was "the one"? I think I knew and he knew but it was really a difficult situation in the begining. I was just waiting for him to say it first. Yes, I'm weird but I was to afraid of putting my heart out and him say No.

3. Does your love have a special ringtone on your cell? Not at the present moment. I need to do that. He did on my old phone but not on the new one. That takes time to sit and listen to what I have on there to figure that one out.

4. What are you attracted to most in your special someone? Big Arms and Chest!!!! Feels sooooo secure and surrounded being embrassed by them.......

5. Did you know when/where he/she was going to pop the big question? Had NO CLUE!!!!! We had talked about it, looked at rings and kept saying....After the Holidays and after my race in February and we would discuss it closer to then. Holy smokes, the whole world knew except for me. He showed up in my Women's Sunday School Class and proposed in front of all of my girlfiends and Prayer Warriors that had been through everything with me and still loved me anyway. I was totally shocked!!!!!!!

Now it's your turn.....Jump on in!!!!!!

Thoughtful Thursday

I have been really thinking about why I do what I do lately. I have had several deliveries and love it soooooo much. I thought today would be a good day for a Re-Post, a Flashback or whatever you want to call it. You can go back to the begining by using the sidebar on the right. It has been a journey like no other and when I need to remember why I am doing this, I always go back to where it all started.
If you have just joined me in this journey, Welcome and join in please!!!!! If you have been around since it started, Thank you so much for sticking with me. What a journey and what a ride!!!!!!!!
Hi!!!!!! My name is Pam. I am a new Doula (DONA Trained) in the Greensboro NC area. What is a Doula you may ask?? It is a Professional Labor Coach or Assistant. I believe that with all of my heart that this is a calling that the Lord laid on my heart 2 years ago. I am a Sold Out Follower of His. He created this passion in me while working in the Ob/GYN office that I currently work in. I am responsible for doing all of the new OB interviews. In other words, taking the new patients medical history, family history, answering questions, scheduling appts. and ultrasounds and the like. I kept seeing young women, aged 16 and 17 and 18 coming in. The fear in their eyes, the hurt on their faces and not knowing what was next and wondered how in the world had they gotten themselves into this. Through many phone calls, e-mails, research, I discovered what a Doula was. Then, I believe without a doubt, a Doula stopped in one day to have a form filled out for a delivery she attended. I had a long discussion with her about how to get Certified. I was so excited. I had it all planned out and then I hit a wall. Nothing seemed to work. Work schedule changed. I got pregnant. I had a new baby at home, there was just no way. I put it off and put it off. The Lord didn't give up on me. He kept putting it in front of me. Then the e-mail came. They were offering the training through the YWCA in Greensboro and it wouldn't cost me a penny. Not following through this time I was sure was going to be complete disobedience. I heard it said one time from a dear friend and also known as "My Other Mother"- "Delayed obedience is disobedience.". I had to do this. There was NO stopping. I signed up, completed the class with 150% support of my awesome husband and that is where we start. I decided do a blog to post pictures, share stories, to minister to any mom-to-be, to be able to journal through these experiences as a Doula (DONA Trained) and called by God. It's exciting. It's scary. It's gut wrenching sometimes. I hope you enjoy the postings. Come along with me on this journey. If you know me, this is a race that He has set before me and one that I will press on to win the prize that He has for me.

God is so good!!! Just celebrated my 20th baby!!!!!! I'm amazed and overwhelmed with His goodness!!!!!!!

Thinking Tuesday

Just thinking today......about how thankful I am for my hubby.

Yes, he burned the popcorn last week and we had a great laugh about it.
He supports me in my ideas of one day having my own business.
He laughs with me at me.
He encourages me when I need it.
He is always there to push me when I need to move.
He is a great Dad to Kaleb, Kyle and Heather.
He is an awesome friend.
He is a Christian.
He loves me even when I am not the most lovable person in the world.
He tells me I am a GREAT MOM!!!! When I really need to hear it.
He lets me leave at all hours of the day or night to help another woman become a Mother.
He is my husband and I just wanted EVERYONE to know how much I love him.

How much do you love yours? How do you tell him? Share it in the comments!!!!!!!

Triple Threat Not _____ Monday

My hubby DID NOT attempt to make microwave popcorn last week to give our 3 year old a snack before I got home.
He DID NOT put a normal package of popcorn and read the first line of the directions on the box that said ----4 MINUTES (or maybe as little as 2 1/2 minutes in some microwaves).He missed the fine print.
He DID NOT call me prior to getting home and ask me how long to cook the popcorn after he had already attempted to cook the first pack.
I DID NOT get out of the car in the parking lot and the only thing that I could smell was BURNT popcorn.
The house smelled. The parking lot smelled. Our clothes smelled and even now, when something is in the microwave cooking, there is the gentle odor of burnt popcorn.

Not My Child
Kaleb DID NOT run away while attempting to put on a fresh pull-up and proceed to walk around without one on for a few minutes.
Kaleb DID NOT stand still and watch Max and Ruby and proceed to "relieve" himself in the front room.
Kaleb DID NOT come and get me and say "Made a mess Mommy"
Kaleb DID NOT take me by the hand and say with a very straight face "Watch Mommy, I jump over the mess" There was nothing to say......

Not Me Monday
I DID NOT stay in my pajama's until after 12 noon on Friday because I stayed home with Kaleb due to snow and ice.
I DID NOT go to Bojangles yesterday and proceed to eat an ENTIRE Supreme's combo and didn't feel guilty about it.
I DID NOT push the trunk release on my car while it was sleeting/snowing/raining on Friday and leave my trunk up for over 5 hours.
I DID NOT shed a few tears over the fact that I lost ALL of my Mothering The Mother flyer's, magnets, card stock, and other misc. magazines and just "stuff". I still have not figured out when that happened. It was all VERY sad.

How about you? How was your week last week????

Super Supper Saturday/Sunday

Today is a little different. I wanted to share with you what a Great Friend of mine-Ashley and I have started doing. I was doing this a while back but really not "committed" so to speak. It was kind of hap-hazard. Then the New Years Resolution hit me square in the face.
*I am responsible for what my family eats.
*I am responsible for my family's health.
*I am responsible for what we waste our money on eating out.

It was time!!!! Sooooooo I was talking at work with Ashley (the above mentioned Great Friend) and she and her husband are doing Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace. After much discussion across the hall back and forth we came up with a plan. I tried it one week and she was going to give it a shot and see what happened. This is probably nothing new to most of you. You have probably seen it on TV, the Internet and even other blogs. Mass Cooking is what I would call it. Basically all we do is plan the week and do all of the "Main Dishes" on Sunday afternoon and then put them in the fridge and all you have to do is heat and eat all week and prepare some type of quick side. You can even be as simple as apple sauce or even the Steamers that you can get now that are ready in 4-6 minutes.
*Dinner at home.
*Dinner around the table
*Dinner you feel good about serving.
*Dinner YOU prepared and know what is in it.

So, here is the plan for what I did the first week.
Sunday Afternoon cooking plan - Ground Turkey was on sale and therefore, I ran with that.
Huge pot of Ground Turkey Chili in the crock pot.
"Hamburger Helper" Cheeseburger Macaroni (I substitute whole wheat pasta for the pasta in the box)
Turkey Cheeseburgers
Turkey Sloppy Joes
Spaghetti Sauce.
This past week looked like this......
Frozen chicken breast on sale (BOGO Free!!!)
*Baked Spice Chicken for a huge Chicken Salad on Romaine lettuce
*Baked Italian Chicken with pasta and tomato sauce
*Crock pot of Chicken and Rice
*Pulled BBQ Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches (Got a deal at Costco)
Heat and Eat All Week!!!!!!!
This is sooooo VERY easy and VERY COOL!!!!! Not sure what is on the list for next week. How about you? Do you ever cook like this? Have you ever thought about it? I have flipped over it!!!!!!! I am so totally hooked!!!!!!!
PLEASE share your ideas with Ashley and I. We would love to see what you have been cooking lately!!!!!!

Five Question Friday

My Little Life
It's Time once again.....
1. What are you most afraid of? Heights and driving in the ice/snow. Heights even though I have flown to India, Nepal, Ukraine, London, Germany but taking of and landing still get me. Please don't ask me to go to the top of a building or climb more than 3-4 feet off the ground. Driving in snow and ice because the ONLY car accident I have ever been in was when I was driving with my 1 year old in the car. NEVER want to repeat that again.
2. Do you use a flat iron or curling iron? My hair is naturally curly and I have a "reverse bob", I think, and it requires straight hair. Flat Iron EVERY MORNING!!!!!!
3. Hands-free or phone to the ear? Phone to the ear. Hands free drives me crazy.
4. Do you have a matching bedroom set? SO NOT!!!!!!! Very mixed up
5. Do you believe in the paranormal? No, but I do believe that there is a spiritual world that we can not see. One of angels and demons in a constant war. Piercing the Darkness changed the way I think. EXCELLENT BOOK!!!!!! It will change your prayer life for sure.

This was a blast!!!!! Jump in on the fun!!!!!

Thoughtful Thursday- A Birth Story

I was not sure when I would get around to doing this post but it finally made sense to post it now. I can't tell you where it happened. I can't tell you when it happened. I can't tell you names and for sure I can't show you pictures or anything of description that would help someone figure out the who, what, when, where and how of this particular delivery.

This was a delivery like I have never been a part of before. There were very hard decisions and choices that were made on the part of the Birth Mother. Decisions that I do and I don't understand. Decisions that were talked about and discussed at great length and detail. EVERY detail was made aware to everyone that came into contact with us. It was amazing to watch and amazing to see the reactions from people/nurses/physicians/ and others. It was almost overwhelming at times.
This was a delivery that I knew from the beginning a lot was going to be riding on MY shoulders. Please understand that I NEVER take any delivery lightly and I consider it a major undertaking to tell someone that you will be there through the labor, delivery and afterwards. This was a situation where it would be just she and I. That was it. No one else. No friends, relatives, NO ONE. I have done a delivery like this before but it was so early in my career as a doula that I was still learning and now that I know what I know and have watched all of these babies come into this world, this one was different.
As we progressed though labor, she did FANTASTIC. She went on her own. No pitocin, no induction, no nothing. She was such a trooper. We did get Stadol followed by an epidural. She finally got some much needed rest. We proceeded to push, long and hard for 3 solid hours. 3 VERY LONG hours of LONG HARD WORK. This little one had chosen to stay where they were and not come out to see us. We were going to have to go and get them. We went to the OR and there they were within a few minutes of going in.
Once again, I just have to stand in awe of birth in and of itself. It matters not whether it is a C-Section, Vaginal, Epidural, Home, or No Pain Meds. They were beautiful. This time, they were whisked away and another family to receive. This Birth-Mom had made the ultimate choice. Give this little one to a family that could not. I was in awe!!!!! I am sure that this little one will bless their family beyond belief. I pray constantly for the Birth-Mom. She is precious and will remain so. No pictures taken with a camera. No descriptions given at delivery. No words could be uttered from these lips without them being tear stained. Congrats to both parents. What a delivery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yet at the same time, the words are in my heart and the photos will be forever etched in my head. God is good!!!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!!!!

Not Me Monday

YEAH~~ It's Monday and believe it or not, I am at home.......who knew????

Let's get this going. Little Man is on his way to taking a nap and I have MUCH to be blogging about.

I did not sleep in on Saturday morning til almost 9am

I did not eat an entire Bacon, Egg and Cheese biscuit 2 times in one weekend.

I did not drive home from the hospital in the wee hours of Saturday morning in the middle of the snow storm we were having. (Normally takes me about 10 minutes, took me 40+ minutes Saturday morning)

I did not skip posting on here for 3 whole days because I was actually at home spending time with family.

I did not try and get my car out of the parking spot and due to the snow and ice around my tires, could not get out for 2 days.

It's Monday and daycare was closed today, so Little Man and I are at home chillin' out!!!!! Loving every minute!!!!
