Sometimes i get depressed reading post about how much parents love thier kids. wait, let me explain! I know it sounds wierd. since I am a stay at home mom, I am with my kids 24/7. And it seems like because of that, all I can focus on are what pains in the butt they are someimes. I only see the hassle they present and the drain on me and I rarely ever see them as the glorious being I know they are. I logically believe that, but in my day-to-day mind I can only see them as stress and annoyances-things standing between me and my much needed free time. So this is why, when I read posts about people's undying love for thier kids, it makes me depressed about the way I view my children.
So the American Family Association has a poll going on and the results will be submitted to Congerss when the poll has ended. Get on over there and vote, y'all! Let's open some closed minds!

So here's the scoop: my hubby is interviewing for a job in Cupertino next week. So there is a strong possibility we might move to that area. Problem is, I've never been west of the Mississippi! I have NO IDEA what California is like, let alone the San Jose area where I might be making my home in the next few months! Anyone live out there that can give me an idea of what it's like? School systems, housing prices, lifestyle, etc?
I gathered up all my old newpapers and some homemade bread I made yesterday, left the house, drove to the local grocery store, picked up some egg crate boxes, drove through barely snow-cleared streets to a friend's house who lives 30 minutes away, took off my coat, and was just about to begin helping my friends pack up thier stuff for moving day, when I got a call from my hubby that our son had eaten half an avacado pit and was feeling sick to his stomach. Hubby was about to call poison control and asked me to come home; so, freaking out, i turned right back around and hauled home as fast as I could go (yet again, on barely snow-cleared and CURVY roads) swearing at people in front of me who were not going fast enough, run upstairs to find out that the other half of the avacado pit had been found on the table and that my son had just made the whole thing up.
So this is my first ever blog...my hubby has one and raves about it but I have never used one myself. I am excited to finally be joining the hipmama community...I've been meaning to forever but it is near impossible to find free time with the little 'uns around. Anyway, here we are at the holiday season. I have finally begun teaching Tyler about the Solstice holiday (or Yule, as it's called) and I am so excited! hubby and I have been having difficulty deciding on how to teach (or not teach) the kids about religion, but since we celebrate Christmas with the extended fam in Ohio we figured we could even the score a bit and celebrate Yule here at home.
