Me (caution, this is a sappy, whiny post hehe)

About a month ago I had my hair permanently straighten (think about a perm but instead of making your hair curly it makes it straight). It took 4 hours but was SOOOO worth it. Mick loves my hair long but I cant stand it. Just about anyone who knows me has pretty much only seen my hair short. Mick and I made a deal through, if I got my hair straightened and I liked it then I would let it grow out more, well......

My hair is now almost to the middle of my back and I LOVE it. I wake up and its straight I don't really have to mess with it. I leave it down all the time now but once in a wile I like a cute pony tail. I'm so happy with my hair and to tell you the truth its made me feel better about Me.

This probably sounds so self centered but lately I have been thinking a lot about myself. I have been working on "Me" for a wile now, just trying to be happy with my self and enjoy all the little things of my life. Ever since I took this step back I have found some wonderful and scary things.

1) I really do have some anxiety about turning 30.
Why, I have no idea, I never thought it would be a big deal (and for the most part it isn't) but for some reason its bugging me a bit. I still have a year to go (Aug 2011 the big 3,0) so I don't know why its nagging at me now and I don't even really know why its bugging me.

2) I feel out of place with some of my friends, Most of my friends are having baby's or are going to have another baby in the next year or two or have really small kids, and I'm getting ready to send my baby off to elementary school. No more Super Franks or park days anymore its now school projects and field trips.

3) I'm excited for a new life with "Older kids". Skyla and Justin are so fun to take to amusement parks and no one has to sit out on rides cause they are tall enough to ride everything. We have sports and dance and its so much fun. They can go to the potty by themselves. I don't have to go in the same stall as them any more. They can relay their feeling and tell me exactly what they want. Best of all their good kids, they make good choices, and make me smile everyday.

4) I'll have time to work on me and do the things during the day that "I" want to do, and I wont have to walk as fast as I can from one side of target to the other to reach the bathroom before someone pees their pants (unless I'm having a really off day hehehe).

My life is fun, crazy, adventurous, scary, joyful, and filed with lots of love and I'm glad I have taking the time to sit back and see how much I truly have and feel the joy of being so grateful for it. My husband and kids are the loves of my life and all 3 of these people make me who I am.

I'm loving my life and the people who make it up......and my new hair!

We are all better now :)

Boy did that last week take it out of me. I'm feeling much better (I can talk and swallow again) but I still feel a little drained of energy. Skyla is 100% and ready for summer. Justin is all better as well and Micks finger is back to a normal size hehehe.

Now we are just waiting for summer. The kids are going to do swim class again, then Justin will have a week of baseball camp and Skyla will be in a 5 week pre-K camp. The camps are just day camps but still Justin will be gone from 9am-3pm M-F, and Sky will be gone 8:30-11:30 M-TH. It will be fun for them (and me).

I still cant believe Skyla is gong to be in Kindergarten soon, its crazy to think about. Justin will be a 3rd grader WOW that seems so old all of a sudden.

I had a wonderful Mothers day. Mick spoiled me and got me a iPod touch (I think he just did it so he could have the old iPod all to himself now hehehe). Sky made me a cute card and a little pack of candy in Joy school. She even told me I didn't have to share the candy with her (hahaha she cracks me up), Justin made Mick go to Safeway and he picked out a really pretty orchid for me all by himself. I really did feel spoiled and loved on Mothers day.

On mothers day I also got to give a talk in church about Mothers and I really put a lot of thought and heart in to my talk, I also felt my talk was really guided by the spirit. Ever since then I have been reflecting on my role as a mother and how I am with my children. I feel so over whelmed and grateful that my Heavenly Father loves me so much that he gave me 2 beautiful children to raise here on earth and to be with for all eternity. My heart feel so full and I feel so loved that I just had to share how Much I love my family and how much I love my Heavenly Father.

When it rains....

Its truly does pore!

I woke up with a really bad sore throat the other day and was told it was more then likely due to allergies.....yeah right this is me we are talking about here......Sure enough it was worse the next day so I got to go see the Doc again and was now told it is Tonsillitis. I don't have strep which is good cause that hurts more but i do have full blown tonsillitis.

Mick cut his finger at work the other day and yesterday had to take a trip to the doc because the finger that got cut was now infected and 3xs its normal size.

Justin has had really bad allergies this spring. The skin around his nose has gotten really raw and is now infected too, not to mention he is a 8 year old boy so that means he doesn't wash his hands as much as he should. He now has 2 cold sours one on each side of his mouth and both are infected. The doc thinks it has just been transferred from his noes.

Skyla saw the doc today too and poor thing has tonsillitis too. She also gets to go see the physical therapist and get her leg braces tomorrow but that's a different post.

SO the whole Rogers family are on perceptions of antibiotics. Like I said when it rains it pours :)
